The Song of the Shirt. NEW VERSION. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914
The Song of the Shirt. NEW VERSION. i .&lt;4 That there is a distinctly humor ous 3ide, evon to Antarctic explo ration, is illustrated by many amus ing incidents which Mr. Justice Murray and Mr. George Marston relate in their book* ''Antarctic Days" (Melrose#). Both these gentlemen belonged to Sir Ernest Shackleton'a last expe dition, and they relate how one of the members, a genius^ "hit upon the plan whereby you can always have a clean shirt, even if you pos sess only two-always^ without wash ing, bo it understood. You put oti ! a shirt; in a week or two it be | comes dirty ; you don the other one, and wear it till it is so much dir tier than the first that the first is clean by comparison, and you revert to it, and so on, ad infinitum." A makeshift in regard to trousers was equally amusing. "Finding the trousers issued to the shore party too complicated fer overyday wear, or being, for some other reason, un happy in them, Mac determined to make himself a pair out of a Jae...

WIRELESS WAVES AND BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914
WIRELESS WAVES AND BIRDS. $ Observations made in parts of the world where there are many wire less stations indicate that birds are disturbed in a singular way by the wireless waves. It is stnted that gulls are apparently the princi pal sufferers, but that also large numbers of doves are in some way prevented from finding their way home when there are wireless sta tions in the line of flight. This strange phenomenon is attributed to some effect of the ether waves not yet understood.

THE GARDEN. COLOUR IN APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914
THE GARDEN. COLOUR IN APPLES. Evidence in support of the old ojiaion that sunlight is the chicj agent in developing colour in apples is afforded in a bulletin from the Pennsylvanian experiment station on i "The Fertilising of Apple Orchards." Various dressings were applied to the trees in order to ascertain their re spective effects upon growth of wood and yield and colour of fruit. Farm- j yard manure and nitrogenous artifi- i cial manure alone or in combination | notably increased growth and yieid, I but reduced colour. The latter is at tributed to "delayed maturity and a diminished light supply to the fruit, due to an increase jji the density of the foliage.". It is added that ex periments proved that exposure to sunlight after picking increased red ness by over 35 per cent., while some of the same lot of fruit stored in darkness showed practically no deep ening of colour. The conclusion is that "maturity in sunlight on the trees is. undoubtedly the greatest, in fluence affecting...

A THIBF WHO DIDN'T CALL HIM' SELF A THIBF. Thank Heaven !" The words ?were spoken by a tall, g,aunt man of about thirty, who carried a pickaxe, , spade, and a bundle, as he paused in 1 front of a rough wooden shed. i He had walked many, miles, and the sun was blazing as only an Austra lian sun can blaze, and the wayfarer ' who had worked many weary months | at a' claim and at last given it up in I disgust, then set ofi hoping to find I a spot that would give him some re- j turn for his toil. But the place to ' which he was bound was still many i miles distant, and he was weary and j footsore, therefore the sight of this > unexpected shelter caused him to ex- ! claim with thankfulness. It was not often he thought or spoke of the Almighty, not. being a God-fearing man or a swearer, and the words were almost a...
THE DEAD SEA A HEALTH RESORT. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914
THE DEAD SEA A HEALTH RESORT. + Sir .1 olm Gray Hill, a Palestine explorer, believe,? that the curative value of the waters o( . the Dead Sea will some day make- its shores a place of resort in the winter months for curative purposes. " I have found the use of the Dead Sea water most invigorating," he says. "I get a supply at my house brought in old petroleum tins on donkey back, and use it somewhat diluted for my morning tub.'' It may be some time before the inva lid tide sets that way, but the other attractions of the country should aid its popularity." "Does the baby talk yet ?" asked a ifriend of the family of the little brothei". "No," replied the little brother, disgustedly. "He don't need to talk. All ho has to do is yell, and he gets everything in the house worth having.." 1933.

MUSIC AND LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 19 June 1914
MUSIC AND LABOUR. A An interesting development in con nection with the loud-speaking tele phone is its use for distributing music during' working hours in fac tories, warehouses, and other institu tions where men are engaged in work 01 a monotonous character. It has long been known that work requiring' mechanical skill without t.he necessity of mental concentra tion can be promoted by supplying the workers with some kind of plea sant amusement that. will not take the attention from the work, and the loud-speaking telephone ap pears to make this possible on a scale not hitherto thought of.
