Pars Keeping Tasmania Back.-It is uiulerstocd that a proposition for the subdivision ot a large Tasmanian estate lias beeA abandoned for thc reason that it is poetically impos- sible under the existing quarantine regulations to obtain the necessary cows ficm the mainland. A local agent said yesterday that at least 200 Victorian dairy faimers would be glad to eenie and settle in Tasmania within a year if only they could bring (heir dairy slock with them.

The great and lorriblo Chaka would not allow anyone except him- self to own cattle ; and h« for hado anyone, on pain of death, to givo food ot- assistance of any kind to men found driving herds of cat- tle. And in order losco whether his commands were being obeyed, ho sent out men with cattle and b'ado them drivo tho herd north, and see whether in any kraal they could get food. Tho men with tho cattle wont oa and on, and at every kraal they wore repulsed. At last, faint and worn out, they carno to a kraal far up in tho country and piteously begged for food. Bul tho inhabi- tants feared Chaka and would give them nothing. Yet ono young girl, a chief's daughter, was filled with compassion for the men in their hunger and weariness. So, sinco she could not persuado anyone else ty succour them, she herself went out by night and brought them food. And when the people of tho kraal knew what she had dono, and found also that the men were Chakn's, they were very...
A FAIR CITY OF SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 27 May 1911
A FAIR CITY OF SPAIN. I looked at thc town that seemed to have too full a beauty to bc quite | rcfli, writes C. Gasqnoiuo Hartley in tho "Tram])." Vigo was illumina- ted for a fiesta night. In tho white town, set upon its hill, with its granito houses rising in sharp up- ward lines that composa perfectly Uko natural encrustations upon tho rock, row after row of lights spark- led and gleamed as in a fairy city, fantastic, improbable. From tfie ancient fortress of tho Castillo del Castro, a dark mass between thc town and tho sky, which stood ont in tho changing flame of lights from tho silver green of trees and the grass of t lie hillside, reports of cannons r.ine; and echoed. Ever and anon rockets shot up into the night and fell in showers of stars; and every colour was reflected in diminishing shades, above in thc luminous moonlit sky, and below in the pallid silver sea. The scene was as beautiful as a ro- mance. Charming from ita beautiful strangeness, when seen at night, or from a...

Rolls of Rice. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 27 May 1911
Rolls of Rico. Tho most important of tho agricul- tural industries of India is tho cultiva- tion of rice, of which a uuuilicr of var- ietés aro produced, differing in sisse, shape nnd colour of grain, as well as in suitability for culinary pu rpo? os. Moro than seventy million acres aro annuaUy put undor rico in India, und samples of all tho varieties produced havo recent- ly been analysed by Doctor David Hooper. Ono of those is peculiar in that it ¡a too glutinous tn bc boiled in the ordinary way. This diihYulty is av- oided by boiling it in bamboo tubes, and after being thus prepared it is left in the tubes to bc eaten cold, especial- ly by travellers. When tho rico is to bo eaton tho bamboo is peeled oif, and a long roll of rico appears, which forms an escollen* substituto for bread.
Speed indicator for Trains. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 27 May 1911
Speed Indicator for Trains. The Flaman spred-indirator, used on many French locomotives, is an interesting1 instrument. Uv means, of clockwork, moved by gearing con- nected with one of the locomotive wheels, the speed per hour and thc time elapsed are shown on graduated dials, while upon a roll of paper are traced graphic records of thc speed, the duration of thc tuns, and that of the stops. The speed is shown by the movement of a hand over a semi- circular dial graduated in kilometres per hour, and the time by a shorter index moving round a small circular dial, one circuit of which occupies ten minutes. Thc registering paper is moved by revolving drums connected with the clockwork of the dials
The Diet of Ancient Athletes. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 27 May 1911
The Diet of Ancient Athletes. Interesting comparisons may be drawn between ancient and modern athletes. The athletes of ancient ? Greece, for example, if they appeared io view to-day, would not be taken | for a football team. The old-time ! man of muscle wore his hair cropped, a distinguishing feature in a land of long- hair. Thot-e in training led ai very careful life. Their bill of fare consisted of fresh cheese, dried figs, and wheaten porridge. A little later in the era meat was allowed, with a preference for beef and pork. Bread was not allowed with meat, and sweets not at all. At one time a strange cus- tom of diet came into vogue. Kvery day at the concludion of practice thc athletes were obliged to consume enor- mous quantities of food, which was digested in a long-continued sleep, j The amount was gradually increased until huge meals of meat were taken. Thc diet produced a corpulence of ad- vantage in wrestling, but undesirable in other sports.
THE CHARM OF WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 27 May 1911
THE CHARM OF WORDS. It is wonderful to note, says an American contemporary, how many persons of exquisite literary tastes agroo that "rosemary" is entitled to the "beauty" crown among words. It certainly has the advantage that, if broken up into its component parts, each of them is still beautiful, lt is true that a roso by any other name would smell as sweet, but then it might not sound so well. Slaty is certainly a beautiful name, unless you join it with Ann. On the other hand, if "Mary Ann" bc written '"Marian," wo have a name that in itself is delightful, and has the add- ed interest of conjuring up visions of Sherwood Forest and Hobin Hood and Friar Tuck and other romantic figures. There is probably somo in- tangible influence about, words that gives thom for some people a pecu- liar charm which for others is en- tirely absent. Thus not everyone will seo with De Quincy a subtle sug- gestion of tho greatness of Rome in Livy's oft-rcitcrated phrase "consul Komanus." Virgil, indee...

A Complete Story. COUSIN JULIA. (By R. Murray Gilchrist.) When Cousin Julia came, Libby went down to the village to meet the station wagonette, lt was a May afternoon, the thorn was in full bloom-from end to end the valley was hoavy with its fragrance. Lib- by was thankful that she livud high up the hillside, near the moorland. "Seems to me as if I couldn't live for long down here," she said to herself. "Ne'er a breath of wind comes through Grassbronk. 'Tis more nor I can understand the way the folk keep in such gntxl health!" She was neatly dressed, hut with no striving towards the fashion- able. Mer gown was of grey cot- ton, figured with white sprays; her hat was broad of brim and severely plain; her linel.y-turneil shoulders were covered with a prim black cape. Nobody could say that Lib- by was pretty, anti yet nobody could wish to look upon a healthier, kind- lier lass.
