MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 8 January 1915
MIELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent.) It must, be assumed that for reasons that may be surmised discipline is made to sit as easily as possible upon the men who volunteor for the Ex peditionary Forces during the prehllmin ary training in camp at liroadneoadows. Otherwise- there would be court mar tials and. some pretty- drastic punish nmets. 'The tcndc'tcy of soldiers to get out of hand is to be deplored. OUt course it is only a certain section or them. for the most part, the men are sensible of the need for behalving in seemly fashion, but there is a pro poreton of devil-may-cares who are nasily led to excesses. The real cul- prits are the toughs who take all sorts of care that they will not volunteer but- attach themselves to the soldiers, antl instigate the outbreaks that are the cause of deep regret to the com munity, who are :hsposed to do homage to the splendid young manhood stream ing away to t:ci:- the.ir places in the people who from ciisplaced generosity peop...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 8 January 1915
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") Those who have summer fodder crops untis feel particularly pleoased with themselves in view fi the continued breaks in the weather, bringing just the right conditons for heavy yields of the succulent milk and fat producing fod der. The season.,has had its lessons -some of them f'o:rrel homle by bitter and costly ex,e:'ieli:c;. One of the most striking of them is the domonstra tion of the value of summer fodder crops. It ?s practlQilly an accepted axiom that the farmo" is the most conserv ative of men. :lakeu-as a body, the men on the land und6ubtedly do quali fy to be placed in that category. Th'ey do not take readily to "new fangled' notions, preferring to- jog along in the same old way tnat was followed by their forbears for generations back, This may seem to somo the more ro markable in that there is-no class to whom more advice is given as to how to do things than those engaged in rural pursuits. The amount of news paper and magazine space devo...

THE NEW GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 8 January 1915
THE NEW GIRL. iPerkins was dining with the Parkers one evening. "Yes," said Mrs. Parker, as the door closed behind the new maid, "she's the most reliable girl I ever had. Of course, she isn't a beauty- " "Well, I don't know about that," Parker was indiscreet enough to say. " It depends a good deal upon what you consider beauty. The girl has a pretty pair of eyes, hasn't she, Porkins?" "Fine eyes," assented Perkins. "And a beautifully rounded arm. Did you notice her arm, Perkins " "It was a nice arm," said Perkins. At this juncture Mrs. Parker sud denly arose and loft the dining-room. "I say," said Perkins, "what in thunder- ' "Listenl" said Parker. Froml the kitchen came the sound of voices raised in altercation. "Mrs. Parker is discharging the new ghrl," said Mr. Parker. '"But I don't see," said Perlkins, ' what-'" "The fact is," interrupted Parker, "the now girl couldn't grill a steak to save her life. Now do you see " A Jewish merchant turned up at his usual refreshment bar the o...
THE DUM DUM BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 8 January 1915
THE DUM DUM BULLETS. From dflerent quarters come stories of the use of dum-dum bullets by the Germans. One lance--corporal pro vides first hand evidence in the shape of a hole 3in in dameter in his sleeve, and a correspondng wound in the arm. The doctor told hm that nothing but an expanding bullet could have done such damage. Dum-dum is the town in British Inda, where a foundry turned out the first of these (Mark IV.) bullets, which were adopted in Indian Frontier fight ing because ordinary bullets would not stop the fanatical tribesmen. The commonest method of securing expansion of the missile on impact is to file down the point, or to make longitudinal slits in the nickel, ex posing the lead core.
GERMANY'S FOOD SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 8 January 1915
GERMANY'S FOOD SUPPLY. In discussing Germany with regard to her food supplies, the "Scottish Farmer" says, "some have an idea that it will not be long before the blockade of her ports will compel Ger mahny to make terms with the nations whose arms she has invited to assail her, but this is questionable. It is true that Germany had begun to import some things before the war broke out, but it is also true that she was in the way of exporting to this country surplus food stuffs, grown under her system of bonn ties, which surplus will now be avail able for her own uses. To this list be long oats and sugar beet. The latter she did not export, but the sugar made from it came our way, and while it was beneficial in some ways, in others it was of doubtful advantage. The exportation of oats to this country dur ing the past season played havoc with the prices of -that commodity among us, and farmers suffered keenly. All this surplus food will not be available for.her wants, and Britons will b...
INSECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 8 January 1915
INSECTS. A new machine has just been invent ed by an engineer, Mr. Friggeri, for the destruction of insects. This elec tric machine has been tried at Pala cios, in the province of Santa Fe, in the Argentine Republic. On a carri age that it is easy to transport Mr. Friggeri places a gasolene motor and an alternating current generator. At the back of the carriage a drum is placed, on which about 200 metres of insulated cable have been rolled. This cable carries the current to a metallic not or system fixed upon a little vehicle with two wheels; and which carries in its centre a transformer that is destined to raise the tension to 6000 volts and even more. The metallic circuit is established between a ole and the dy namo formed by a steam of iron fixed into the ground and the net. After several trials, which have all been crowned with success, the exeriments at Palacois'were considered as decisive. Indeed, not only has it been ossible to destroy grasshoppers, but also their eggs, which...
