SThe Wonderful Water Feats of Duke Kahanamouku There is one man only in Australia at the p~eseet time who can get aboard a breascer. He is Duke- Kahanamoukuo, the human motor boat from Honolulu, one of the world's champion swimmers, who is in our midst now for the fcrthcoming swimming carni-als. lUp till recently we had known him only by rcpute; we had seen him in picture in one of his famous attitudes--standIng on his surf board, KAHANAMOUEU CARRYING THE IMMENSE BOARD ON WHICH HE CARRIES S" e OUT HIS WONDERFUL WATER FEATS. ' It measures Mt tin by 2St. is 3mn through at its thickest part, and weighs over 70lb. being borne shorewards on the crest ci a wave, a smile on his dusky countenance, and there were a lotof us who imagined the poster to be grossly exaggerated; tio theatrical, in fact. But we are wrong. The man on the poster is the Duke all right, but the picture errs on the side of modesty. It should have shown him balancing himself on his head on the board. This was one of the...

__ nteresting Facts About the Latest Aerial' Bombs Not oly do torpedo boats threaten our battleships, but the dirigible balloon and the aeroplane':are. also a menace to the Dread noughts. But just as the torpedo boat de stroyer mel."the one case, so man's ingenuity has met this situation by devising a marvellously efective, yet very simple, plan of annihilating the flying death. The account here given by Prof. Calvin-Porter, an American savant, is by no means as fanciful as it may appear at first sight. If wars are not fought in just this manner this year, they will be next year or the year after, or whenever the nesx, war may he.

The Work of the Kaiser's Secret Agents Among the Boers [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
The Work of the Kaiser's Secret Agents Among the Boers The dominance and importance of Teutonic influence in South Africa have never been fully realised by the average Briton. He has known vaguely that people with German names had something to do with the mites of the Rand, but even newcomers to Johannesburg have expressed incredulity until hrottght up against the stern fact that every 'thing that counts there is German-controlled; that there is not a single group of mines free froni German mastership, and that the bulk of _ the commercial interests of the country is .bsiolutely in their hands, even when the firm •bears a British name. C'HE TEUTON LEAVEN. The Teutonic leaven in Boerdom is very large. The fact that the backbone of Cape Colony is German may still be news to many, who learn with surprise, first that Great Britaia employed a German Legion during the Crimean war; second, that about a thousand of them * were given tracts of land in the Eastern Pro vince of Cape Colony, an...
Italy and the Balkans may be in it Shortly LONDON, November 24. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
Italy and the Balkans may be in it Shortly Evt ae LONDON, November 24. vwnts. ,re moving rapidly toward the further extension of the European war, and, according to the best sources of information available here, the impending developments are calculated to bring remarkable surprises in their train. Germany and Austria have, up to the present, been confident that, in the event of hostilities spreading within the area of the Balkan States, Dulgaria would take up arms against Servia and thus avenge herself upon the Power which despoiled her of the fruits of her early vic tories in the'Balkan wars. For some time past secret negotiations have been going on with a view to removing the Bulgarian grievances in this regard, and there Is good reason to believe that these have made satisfactory progress, thanks chiefly to Italy's willingness to meet Servian aspirations. These plans, of course, assume the sympathy of Italy, if not her actual co-operation with the Allies. Italy's participation ...

THE AGE OF AUSTRALIAN TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
THE AGE OF AUSTRALIAN TREES. A standard sot of figures has been w'orked out by Mr. Hay, N.S. Wales Director of Forests, which should help as a guids for those to whom the study of Australian trees is either a matter of business or of pleasure, In either caos being certainly a matter of proft. Hr. Hay tas made e careiul revioson and suom mary of the data which has been collected..: sence 18t6. He has excluded all references not capable or verifcation, and has accepted only those based on actual measurements or obsrr vatlon. Ths result may be accepted as ap-j proximately correct, though it is a matter on which further informotion will be welcomed. The figures, when worked out, show thet the average age of coastal hardwoods, when mature, is 48 years; that ol inland hardeoods 46 years, cypress pine 28 years. and brush and soitwoods 45 years. There are cide: differences, however, between individual species of trees. Of the coastal hardwoods, red ironbark, grey gaum, and turpentine take l...
A Woman's Criticism of the Emperor of Austria [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 2 January 1915
A Womain's Criticism of the Emperor of Austria How many tourists and travellers realise on jeossing the frontiers of Austria that they have entered a realm entirely distinct from any ether European country in atmosphere, tradi tions, and methods of government? Appear ences beguile them. The scenery, often beauti f,!1, sometimes grandiose, appeals to their eyes; tle people, light-living and lusty, are attrac tive in comparison with the heavier Swiss or uncouth German; the very railway officialk botelkeepers, and police are less obtrusive and easier of manner than those of Germany o5 PRussia. In so pleasant a country, amid so pleasing a folk, it is hard to understand the truth that on entering Austria one enters a - moral vacuum. So runs an article in a re cent literary supplement of London "Times." This is the secret of Austria. We cotlu have wished that the author of this remarkable book had chosen some titles less melodramatic than "The Secret of an Empress." Her hooh Is full of dr...
