His Great Work. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
His Great Work. Professor Verranol was a scientist whose whole being was entirely ab sorbed in bis work. A distinguished foreign visitor, accompanied by mem bers ot his suite, with a journalist or two in the background, recently paid the professor a surprise visit one afternoon. They found the learned veteran apparently engrossed in his labors and scrutinising a spirit-lamp, over which a small pot bubbled. After the usual formalities the distin guished person felt called upon to make conversation. "And what great work engages your attention now, professor?" he asked, casting a penetrating eye in the direction of the aforesaid small pot. The professor smiled a little I wanly. - "I am afraid—er—I don't suppose you will ever guess," he stammered. "Micrococci?" suggested the per sonage. "No." "Sonocci?" "No." "Spirochaeta?" "No." The visitors raked their brains for all the micro-organisms, without avail. t "What is in the pot really?" quer I ied the personage at last, in despair. "Sausa...
The Prose of It. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
The Prose of It. "James, clear, will you letch some coal from the cellar?" aslced the busy wife. "Just the way with you!" said James, with a Mack frown, as he put down the book and rose. "Just the way with me?" "Yes," he snapped. "As soon as you see me enjoying myself you have some job or other for me to do. Didn't you see I was absorbed in my book?" | "Well, dear, I'll do it myself." ! "Yes, and tell everybody, your mother especially, that you have to carry up your own coal from the cellar! Yes, I'll £o it. Let me mark my place." So marking the place in the book where he ceased reading, he went out, grumbling all the way. When he had gone, she picked up the volume. It was a love story, and this was the passage in which he was interested— "My darling", when you are my wife, I'll shield and protect you from every care, the winds of heaven shall not visit your face too roughly, those pretty hands shall not be soiled by menial tasks, your wish shall be my law " Just then he reappeared,...
DANGER SIGNALS. Red is the Most Effective Color. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 21 August 1915
DANGER SIGNALS. Red is the Most Effective Color. Red is the color universally used as a danger signal because it can be seen farther than any other color. It is also the color that "attracts atten tion, excites curiosity, and arouses to action,"' as William Churchill said in an address before the Illuminating Engineering Society. Green, the complementary of rod. is seen almost as far as red, but green is the color of "which Nature makes lavish use, and therefore a fjreen signal-is less easily recognised than a reel, because the former may ensi-'y ho fakea for a part of the back ground. while the latter always con trasts vividly with the background. Su gr-.?on has been used for a clear cr a t.'au tic-nary signal. At night especially red is used as a danger signal, red lanterns being placed on torn-up streets and obstruc tions. red tail lights being used for motor-cars, red lamps to indicate fire exits in theatres, factories, and hotels, and more recently to mark dangerous parts of ma...

FARM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915
FARM NOTES. Never in the history of this coun try was there such a favorite outlook for every man who is in a position to produce any kind of food. With all Europe and part of Asia either at war or seriously affected by the upheaval, the chances for success with all kinds of Australian live stock aed farming operations are increased many times. Let every man get busy and keep busy, for he will surely be richly re warded. Breeders, feeders and pro ducers of every kind will never live long enough to see a better time to make every pound of meat and food of all kind than exists to-day. The time to cut lucerne is when the little shoots or new stems first appear, and before they get long enough to be cut by the mower. Get down on your knees out in the lu cerne and study it. Pull up a few roots, and note whether these shoots are not just below the surface. It harms the lucerne to cut it before the shoots have started. Try it out on a part of your own field, and note how it affects the nex...
FIRST THIRTY DAYS AFTER CALVING. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915
FIRST THIRTY DAYS AFTER CALVING. If the cow has been properly cared for the first three days she may then be put on dry and more solid food. The manner in which she is fed for the next 30 days determines largely the character of work she will do dur ing her lactation period (writes Mr. Alfred Gorrie). Parturition weakens the digestive apparatus, and heavy feeding soon after calving is likely to be followed by indigestion or impac tion. During the first 30 days after calving maternal instinct is at its highest pitch, and during this time, if properly cared for, the cow can be brought to her greatest possible milk flow. Beginning on the fourth day with five pounds of grain daily, the ration should be increased slowly— say yzlb. each alternate day. This in crease may continue just as long as the cow continues to increase in her milk yield. When she ceases to re spond, then the feed should be lessen ed, in the same gradual manner, for a few days, and it will, as a rule, be noted that th...
Dairying. FEEDING DRY AND NEWLYCALVED COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915
Dairying. FEEDING DRY AND NEWLY CALVED COWS. There is a natural tendency with most good cows to become fat when not yielding milk. The dry cow should receive such feed as will allow her to attain a good body condition. Grass is the best feed for this purpose, and if the dry cow can flesh up on grass alone it should be done. At calving time a cow. should be in good flesh without being in prime beef condition. Should the paddock fail to supply the fodder necessary to fatten the dry jow, the grazing should be supplement ed by hand-feeding. The proper time to begin is six to eight weeks before calving. The feeds given at this time should meet the following require ments: rest and.cool out the digestive tract, supply nourishment for the growing foetus or unborn calf, and build up flesh and strength for the cow herself. Green corn, ensilage or lucerne hay are the best bulk fod der for springing cows, and three or four pounds of crushed oats or bran daily is all the grain food necessary. I...
SNAKE FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915
SNAKE FARMS. A snake farm where the reptiles are provided with concrete houses is an odd institution maintained by the Government of Brazil at Sao Paulo. It serves the double purpose of pro viding a supply of material for the production of serum antidote for snake bites and of educating the pub lic to the fact that all snakes are not venomous. The "farm" is surrounded by a con crete wall high enough to keep the snakes from crawling out, but low enough for visitors to see over. In aide the wall, is a water-filled trench, also lined with concrete, while con crete walks connect the snake houses. At night the snakes are herded into these dome-shaped struc tures and the doors are closed. In the morning an attendant wakes up the reptiles by prodding them with a stick through a hole in the door, after which the doors are removed and the snakes come out for their morning bath in the trench. _
WHY HARRY LAUDER LOVES ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915
WHY HARRY LAUDER LOVES ANIMALS. Few members of the theatrical pro fession have worked more actively since the war for the cause of patriot ism than has Mr. Harry Lauder. Most people are aware that the great comedian is a lovfer of animals, and that he has done a great deal to better the lot of the unfortunate pit ponies, but very few know why he takes so much interest in the latter animals. The story is best told in his own words. "I was a pony driver in the' coal mine," he has said, "and one day I was driving into the coal face. I was going through what they call a drift, and my little pony stopped where the roof was very high and very danger ous. I wondered why the pony stop ped for a second or two then. I gave him a crack with my whip. "Immediately I struck him with the whip he turned around to the side of the little tub I was sitting in, and I am not exaggerating when I say that about 100,000 tons of roof fell. Had it not been for the cuteness of the hearing of that pony we shou...

CHAPTER X. Contains a Clue. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915
CHAPTER X. Contains a Clue. At once I knew that some startling incident had happened. Dr. Sladen, called by the police, en tered the room a few moments after wards, whereupon I turned to him, and in order to allay any undue cur iosity, said: "My man has been taken ill, doc tor. Exhaustion, I suppose. He's a great walker, and, unknown to me, has. apparently been out for a night ramble." "Ah, yes," answered the quiet, old fashioned medical man, peering at the invalid through his glasses. Slowly he took Rayner's pulse, and then said: "Heart a little weak, I suppose. There's nothing really wrong—eh?" "I think not. He was talking to me only a few moments ago, and then suddenly fainted. Been on a long ramble, I should think." "At night, eh?" asked the doctor, in some surprise. "It is a habit of his to walk at night. He does the same thing in London—walks miles and miles." We dashed cold water into Ray ner's face, gave him a smelling-bot tle belonging to one of the maids, and 1 very eoon h...

The Place of Dragons CHAPTER IX. Describes a Night Vigil. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915
By WILLIAM LE QUEUX. By Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London & Melbourne. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER IX. Describes a Night Vigil. The gusty wind had died down. In the silence of the might I listen ed to the receding noise of the motor cycle as it swept down the hill into Cromer town, where I knew Rayner would be on the alert. The sound died away, therefore I re-lit my pipe and, mounting again into the driver's seat, sat back think ing—thinking mostly of Lola and my ill-luck at having missed her. Before me, in the white glare of the lamps upon the road, where in sects of the night, attracted by the radiance, were dancing to their deaths, there arose before me that sweet, perfect iace, the face that had so attracted me. I saw lier smile smile at me, as she did when first we had met. Ah! How strange had been our friendship, stranger than novelist had ever imagined. I had loved her—loved as I had never loved before, and she had loved me, with that bright, i...

"MOTHER!" THE CRY OF THE WOUNDED. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915
"MOTHER!" THE CRY OF THE WOUNDED. Declaring it to be the most terrible thing in the whole tragedy of the battlefield, a returned officer describes the cries of the wounded. "It is not the shrieks of the wound ed as they fall," he said. "It is not the sight of the dead as they lie there, but it is the cry of the wounded boys calling for their mothers, and there is no one to do anything for them. They are the boys of sixteen and seventeen and even younger. In their agony all those boys call for the one who has given them the greatest care all their lives."
KNOCKING AT THE SULTAN'S DOOR. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 28 August 1915
KNOCKING AT THE SULTAN'S DOOR. Chanak, the principal fortified town in the Dardanelles, must be battered to pieces, and also other forts around us. We blow them to Jericho with the big guns of the battleships. There can hardly be a rat alive there. The soldiers (English and French) have made a large town of their own with stores and horses, etc. They look grand and are fully established, and as long as the old watch-dog 011 the sea is there no Turk dare show his face. Before long we hope to be in Constantinople, knocking with our 15 inch shells at the Sultan's front door. —Signalman E. Simpson. Two small boys were having a somewhat rough struggle, and when one received an unexpectedly hard blow he exclaimed: "If you don't look out, you'll end up in a place that begins with H and ends with L!" A school teacher who was passing, on hearing the remark, scolded the b v severely for what he had said. "Well," replied the boy, after a pause, "I'm sur I don't know what you're talking about. ...

HER 13TH HUSBAND DOMESTIC TROUBLES OF A MUCH MARRIED WOMAN. The correspondent of the Ottawa "Free Press" at Evansville, Indiana, says that Mrs. Polly Anne Weld Strodes, who is 76, and who has been married 13 times, announces that she has decided to seek a divorce from her present spouse, Mr. Harrison Strodes. Mrs. Strodes' principal complaint against him is that she was forced to sign a bond for £10 by her husband, who stood over her and threatened to murder her if she refused to do so. Mrs. Strodes states that she never had any trouble with her husbands until she married Harrison. The thir teenth was bound to be unlucky. She reckons she flew in the face of Fate!
