The [?]obram Courier. ESTABLISHED 1888. THURSDAY, APRIL 9, 1914. Local and General Items. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 9 April 1914

"|>e $,obi'«ii] (j? oui'iep. EariDuansD 1SS8. THURSDAY, APRIL 0, 15)14. Local and General Items. Bauooga \Vati:r Tkcst—According to opinions given expression to in Kerrigan on Monday it is feared by a number of people that the rates levied by the above Trust during the coming financial year (which are due on the 28th inst.) will have to be increased in order to meet the heavy expenditure incurred, also that it is quite possible the rate will be double that of last year. Now wo are in a position to state that these fears are quite without foundation, and they are evidently the result of the idle vaporings of Jonahs living outside the area who dolefully predicted that the water in the main or subsidiary channels would never get to its various destinations, also that the maintenance was being conducted "regardless of expense." 11 is now well known that an abundance o£ water was delivered at every point desired, and regarding the expense it may bo pleasing to learn that after paying ...

It Belonged to Him. A groat sensation waii croated at n certain station just previous to the starting of the morning; express for London. The guard was about to start the train when a fussy und fat old gentleman trotted up to hiin and said ''Wait a minute, will you, please, whilo I " "Impossible, sir," said the guard, putting the whistle to his lips. "Hut you must wait !" cried the old gentleman, excitedly. There's n man's leg under the wheel." "Good gracious ! Where is he?" inquired the horror-stricken guard. "Hold on there !'" Tie hurried after the old gentle man, while a couple of porters jurnp down to the line funid great excitement. Aiter a short search one of the porters handed up a rush basket containing a large leg of mutton. "Thank you," said the old gentle man. "What do you mean, sir ?" roared the guard.

Figures and Fancies. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 9 April 1914

Figures and Fancies. f If—and don't forget Iho "if"—you were offered as a Christmas pre sent either all the land in the Uni ted Kingdom or a piece of cheap, common calico of the same area, which would you choose ? Probably, without a moment's hesitation, you would say, " The • land," and would imagino thai you had got very much the better of the bargain. From one '-point of view, of course this would be ho, for land lasts longer than does-cali co. On the other hand, however, you would be choosing very much the cheaper of the iw<> offered gifts. The land of the .United Kingdom; including town areas, is estimated to be worth £2,500,000,000. A piece of cheap calico of the same size as the United Kingdom would cost more than £!) ,000,'too, 000.

Why a Woman can Outtalk a Man. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 9 April 1914

Why a Woman can Out _ talk a Man. f | A woman can talk longer than a man, ami docs so because she uses up less force by a large percentage than the man does. A CJerman pro-, 'feasor has •'proved by actual and j very delicatc measurements that the baritone singer uses fur more energy j than the tenor, and that the has* singer uses more force than either. The range of voices differs greatly, so the percentage varies to the same extent, but as a general result it was proved that the tenor uvea only from .one-seventh to one-sixteenth of the lung power the baritone or bass. The difference between the force used by the contralto an I the soprano is ipiite as marked, and the contralto who sings in very deep tones uses at least ten times the force of the triUimr soprano. The explanation is so simple that it is surprising that the investiga tion was not made long ago. It has long been known that the tenor or soprano brings the vocal chords close together and keeps the edges vibrating by the ...

Kaiser's Airship Station. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 9 April 1914

Kaiser's Airship Station. Heligoland, the liny island in the North Sea which Germany proposes to turn into a great station for her airships, is one of the most-cur ious islands in the world. 1 Jts towering clifTs, for instance, arc largely artificial. Some yen re 1 ago there was grave fear that the j island, which was steadily growing : smaller, would soon he oaten away I entirely by the waves from the j south-west. nut £1,000,000 haa been spent on raising a cliff of granite on this exposed side. On those parts of the const- whore | the red, porous rock of th« genuine , cliffs has been too badly honey-1 combed' by the i seaJi, hundred of thou- j sands of tons of cemeut have been used to strengthen the f«eo. Heligoland has l©ng been an im portant naval centre. It is do feuded by the most powerful guns, and is said to be prepared for a siego lasting threo years.. It is, in deed, the North Be.i storehouse of the Gentian fleet. Visitors are only ullowcd in the tiny port, the high platea...

INTERESTING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 9 April 1914

INTERESTING ITEMS. Kansas City la convulsed with laughter over the experience of two detectives who, attired in the latest feminine fashions, attempted to catch a notorious purse snatcher. The detectives, Adgar Hilson and Louis Morley, are both small men, and this gave them the idea of disguising themselves us women in order to capture the man who operated suc cessfully at a busy tramway cross ing. In tight skirts, satin shoes, silk shoes and small velvet hats with rakish egrets, they took up a position at a car stopping place,. and it was not long before a negro slouching down the street seized Wilson's silver mesh purse, and fled. Tlie detectives produced revolvers, and called upon tho thief to halt, but when they attempted to pur sue their light skirts proved their undoing. The mortified oJficors sent several shots after the thief without effect, raid after stumbling over the cobble stones in their unaccustomed garb for some 50 yards they aban dobed the pursuit. They stopped at t...

Africans Not Barbarians. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 9 April 1914

Africans Not Barbarians. Recent. discoveries of Professor Leo Krobenius, the famous German explorer and archaeologist, hnv.» proved that Africans are not, the ignorant barbarians we have usually thought them to he. They prove that u high degree of civilisalion combined with high artistic ability has existed in various parts of Africa and still exists to-day. The objects collected by Krobenius have been placed on exhibition in si museum in Jlerlin, and have excited great interest by their artistic char acter. The professor points o'lt that African art has a peculiar character because the life of the African is passed entirely out of doors, where as the mental life of the Kuropoun is associated with the interior. The objects are made directly from natural material without peat arti ficial changes. This gives them a primitive character, but one thor oughly in harmony with the mater ial treated. Kach material has its special ornamentation. The orna-, mentation used upon wood is never th...
