The Farmer and the Middleman. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 3 June 1911
The Farmer and the Middleman. (Contributed by A, DALY) j ---(j- t It has frequently occurred to me '. that the lot ot the* farmer is not a; happy one. How can it be so winni j themiddli: man takes the largest i share of his prolits, Now while I endeavouring to induce my fa mer 1 friends to wake UP and ascertain 'or ' themselves, who it is who is really j robbing them. How is it possible | for a farmer to pay his farm hands j good wages under existing c mdit i ions. Of ourse he cannot, any man j who is in thc least degree informed, 1 think will agree, that as long as ! the middleman is allowed to exploit I him, he will be so much the poorer. We must n.it lose sight of the fact I that commission charges come out 1 of the producer's pocket, but why the farm labjur.er should be paid ¡ sweating wages, "made hewers of j wood, and drawers of water'1 like ¡ beasts we cannot understand. It j is no fault of theirs that the middle- man is allowed to exist. Perhaps it , might be as well to dire...

TRAINING THE CANARY. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 3 June 1911
TRAINING THE CANARY. 1 he canary, as ils name indicates, was originally a denizen of the Can- ary Islands, " lying off the West Coast of Africa. The species ahounds there still, hut lew ol' the : cage birds now come from that lo- ! cality. In the wild state the canary is al- ways groen coloured. It has a pleasing song, but the carol ol the bird in its natural surroundings is feeble in comparison with its cap- tive song. In fact the voice of the cage canary is largely a manufac- tured article, and thV best specimens of the race come from the Hartz Mountains in (iennany. THE POWER OK IMITATION. Canary breeding is carried on to a greater or less extent by neal ly all the peasants in this district, and some ol thc large dealers have ac- commodation for many thousands ol birds While a canary's capacity for song may depend upon his good breeding, his excellence is sure to come from musical training. The songs he sings and the tones in which he gives them are all learned from imitation, an...

Fares According to Height. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 3 June 1911
Faros According to Height. A Pennsylvania inter-urban- traction company has decided to establish a height limit in place of thc tir.ua! age limit for determining children's fares. A gauge linc is painted round the in- terior nf the car at a height of forty five inches above the floor; in case of dispute thc youngster is measured by the line, and if taller than forty-five inches he pays full fare. This is a fairer arrangement than the age limit, because the cost of conveying a per- son is dependent on thc size and space occupied, and height is a better index to weight than age, even if it were passible to verify thc latter.

Crasses for Paper-making: Fortune Waiting. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 3 June 1911
Crasses for Paper-making i Fortune Walting. There is a fortune awaiting the per ! son who succeeds in prowiniï a grass j or other plant suitable for paper making, and the next great step in utilising farm w.istc may bc a change in thc manufacture of paper, as thc wood fibre available will probably bc exhausted within a few years. Experi- ments by the U.S. Department of Ag ; riculturc have shown that almost any I long fibre can be used for paper, and I that such waste materials as cotton stalks and corn-stalks make paper of very good quality, almost equal to linen. Bamboo, rice roots, and other plants from Japan and China are also being obtained foi study in continuing the search for the. paper-making- ma- terials of the near future.

Railway Acc.act: ._.." In Vfcteria. Two double-headed trains came &nbsp; into collision, near the Andersen railway station, on the Wonthaggi line, at half past one o'clock yester- day morning when, the leading &nbsp; engine of both were knocked off the line, and badly damaged. No loss of life occurred, both train crew escaping without injury. One train from Nyora was leaving &nbsp; the station, as the other from Won- &nbsp; thaggi was slowly making its way into it, but whether the signals were &nbsp; disregarded, or not properly given is not yet known. In the darkness &nbsp; of the night both trains crashed into. each other. Their fore portions were. &nbsp; &nbsp; flung and twisted about, and then wheels left the tails at once. 'The sound of the impact was terrific. The nain crews flung themselves free and the damage to the rolling stock was practically confined to the two engines which broke up the roadway and blocked ...
The New Year In Japan. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911
The New Year In Japan. The New Year is ushered in amid Brent rejoicing in Japan. On thc last day of the old year no one goes to bed the bells ring all night long, and on New Year's morning the usual sweep- ing and dusting of rooms is not per- mitted lest any «nod luck should be swept away. All the gateways arc de- corated with straw ropes, oranges and lobsters, the last because of its crook- ed back being regarded as thc symbol of old agc-and from January ist to 3rd, the "three rhief days of the New Year," thc people regale themselves with "Znni," a stew of rice cakes and greens boiled in fish gravy, which is the Japanese substitute for our own Christmas pudding. The New Year holidays last until January 16th, wind- ing up with a Feast of Return to La- bour.
A Curious Colony. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911
A Curious Colony. Thc Colonia Cosme, on the Para j guay, above Asuncion, is one of thc most curious in thc world. The mern hers of thc colony make or grow cv- | 1 crything they need and import no I thing. Thc workmen do seven hours' ! work a day, and earn, not money, but time. Their wages are hours and half hours. These they sometimes save up till they have a week in hand and then I go off ön an excursion. If a man wants a chair or table, be pays for it in hours of work, which are deducted I from thc balance to his credit. Three men went off up the river in a canoe for three week's holiday. They sold J their canoe at Asuncion for a pound, and came home overland in ten days, lodged in the best Muses ¡n thc vil- lages on thc way, and ye* had same money in hand at tho end.
Where Doctors Differ. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911
Where Doctora Differ. Doctors arc divided in opinion as to the antiseptic properties of tobacco. A practitioner recently remarked that thc antiseptic power of tobacco, in his opinion, was not so great as was generally thought, and he supported his view by citing- thc frequency of thc smokers' sore throat. Dr. Cor- net, of Paris, has recently contribu-. ted a paper to the Paris "Medical," in which he claims that thc weed pos- sesses great powers as a bactericide. It sterilises the saliva and docs not hurt thc teeth. It is an error, thc i doctor asserts, to attribute inflamma- tion af thc gums or of the mucus glands to tobacco. lt was thc same with cancer. It could not be traced to tobacco exclusively. !
The Theatre In Portugal. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911
The Theatre In Portugal. Thc heavy Government tax imposed on all places of entertainment in Port- ugal obliges thc poor to circumvent the thc law if possible and so it often hap- pens that a theatre is run as a club, and the tickets arc shared out among' thc members. Thc native talent bf the village provides both thc orchestra and thc actors. No actresses appear as Eastern ideas of fcniatc seclusion arc sufficiently strong to forbid the girls appearing in public, so thc fe- male parts are taken by smooth-faced boys. The orchestra consists mainly of guitars, and although not one in ten of the. adult population can read or write, not oric in ten is ignorant of how to play thc guitar or some other j musical instrument.

Hy thc courtisey of Mr and Mrs Arthur Eade the promoters were granted an opportunity to make the presen- tation at the social in honour of their daughter's marriage.

A Possible Miracle. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911
A Possible Miracle. The conversion of 35,000 square miles of intolerable nuisance into a minc of wealth is thc miracle Egypt- ian engineers- hope to achieve. Thc obstruction of the Nilo by fhiatintf water plants, or sudd, bas become a serious problem, but experiments in a small way give promise of actual profit from the removal of this waste material to use as fuel. Suitable machinery is to be provided for dryinp;, disintegra- ting" and compressing the sudd, and it is expected that thc briquettes form- ed will bc extremely useful. With coal at £3 a ton at Khartoum, thc new fuel's prospects seem to bc good.
