LITERATURE. TRAVELS IN CENTRAL AFRICA.* [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
.TRAYVELS IN CENTRAL AFRICA.* The unexplored country between Lake Victoria and Lake Kiwu,.in Central Africa, was the scene of a special German expe dition, under the Duke of Mecklenburg, in 1907-8. The experiences then obtained of th'e tropical forests on the banks of the Artiwimi and Congo rivers were of a nature which justified a second endeavor to reveal the hidden secrets of Nature. With this purpose in view, arrangements were made under the same leadership foir another jour ney, wherein the flora and fauna of the country north of these forests would re ceive attention. The record fills two port. ly volumes, enriched with photographic il lustrations and special drawings contribu ted by the artist accompanying.the expc dition. Though not written in a specially attractive Imanner, there is an abundance of 'material which may be classed as in structive and interesting. The original intention was that the main party should proceed up the Congo and Ubangi rivers, and spend some time ...
LITERARY GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
LITERARY GOSSIP. In '"The Custom of the Country," Mrs. Edith WVharton. one of the best lknown of trans-Atlantic writers, has given a pitiless exposure -of the condition of American §,eiety. She has found material for sc?ith inr comment in the supreme Kmpnrtance attached to material jjrospe~ity, in the absence of filial reverence, and in thile fadcility 'of divorce, which rendelfs 'the marriage tie a nullity, and almost gives a practical sanction to the principle of free love. It is quite possible that Undine Spragg may be considered an e.xtreme ex ample of American oharacteristics in this respect. But there is ample illustration afforded in actual life to show the ex istence of the evils which come under the lash of Ithe satirist, and to redeem the portrayal from the reproach of inartistic exaggeration. The 'heroine is animated from the very beginning with the am bitious desire of making the most of her physical attributes. :She is the daughter of parents whom she has made absolutel...

In connection with the announcement that as the result of the famine in the HIokkaido and North-Eastern prefectures no fewer .than 9`00,000 people are in. a starving condition, it appears that hithert? the officials have hidden the extent of the famine, fearing the effect upon tihe Gov ernment's financial standing. The people are-so inured to conditions approachzng destitutioni that they..only complain. when they are faced with starvation. -Thie. real remedy for recuirririg famines is the culo tivation of rice on scientific principles.

MINING MINING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
MINING NOTES Further exemplification of the desira bility of pursuing .a conservative policy based .upon sound busiriess lines in the administration of the affairs of mining .con-, cerns is afforded by the recent history of certain Victorian alluvial propositions. It is- -now-. apparent that the board, of a prominent company took an unduly optimistic view of the outlook, anid commenced! dividend paying at an earlier -'date. - than was- desirable in view of -possibilities. which have: lately become probabilities. A further indiscre. tiorn was committed in the matter of basing, distributions, on too high 'a scale. The im-. niediate effect of the pursuance of this .policy was twofold-operations at the mine itself were so pushed ahead in certain directions in .such a nmanner as to impose an undue : strain upon 'the producing sections, and values for scrip in the stock market we're inflated to a level unwarranted by the .facts, as they now appear. There is no reason to suppose that the d...

CROSS BREEDING IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
CROSS BREEPNC IN SHEEP. Sii',-In a recent issue of "The ,Leader" there is an article, Sheep Crossing. Experiment. .Al though very interesting, it 'misses one point of value. In givinm·the iweighlt of wool, the Suffolk merino cross averaged 7 lb. 9 oz., while .the Lin coln-merino cross only averaged 8 .lb. 2 oz.,' nd brought (}d. per lb. more money.. Judging by those results, it is very evident that a specially Selected Suffolk ram was procured for the experi ment, and only a fair Lincoln. Had a typical Lincoln ram been used, imder time sanie condi tions, the Lincoln-nierino croaa would average at least 10 lb. of wool. It is a recognised fact that a typical Lincoln ram will cut almost double the weight of wool of a Suffolk rain. Experience has also proved over a large area of Australia that the Lincoln-merino is the most suitable where cross breeding is resorted to, and the Suffolk is a suitable ram 'to mate with that cross' to produce fat lambs for export. We do not want experiments...
