AN AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE TRAIN. In California the mountain is car ried to Mahomet, and the farmers are served by a travelling college. This is a train. Tho season 1911-12 was the fourth year of running, and close on 5,000 miles were covered in the last rampaign.

This was an increase of 24,000 persons, or 31 per cent, over the attendance of the pre vious year. Commenting on tho latest tour, the "Pacific Free Press" states that there was a noted increase of in terest at practically every place visit ed, and in all of the few instances where tho attendance diminished the result was due to inclement...

THINKING OF HIMSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 18 June 1914
THINKING OF HIMSELF. Two Irish soldiers stationed In the West Indies wore accustomed, to bathe daily in a little bay whioh was gener ally supposed to be free from sharks. Though on good terms with each other, they were not what might be called fast friends. One day, as they were swimming about one hundred yards front the shore, Pat observed Mike suddenly mak ing for the land as hard as he could without saying a word! Wondering what was the matter, Pat struck ou vigorously after him, and landed at his companion's heels. "Is there anything wrong wid ye I" inquired Pat, feelingly. "Nothing—nothing at all," replied the ether. "Thin what did ye make sich a sud dint rctrato for an' lavo me?" contin ued Pat.

CLEANSING OF HULLS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 25 June 1914
CLEANSING OF HULLS. A new method 'of cleansing a ship's hull from growths likely to impede its progress was' demonstrated . in the West India Docks, London, on the cable-laying ship Faraday. Naval attaches from several countries were present to watch tiio progress of tho work: .At present ships' trails 'are cleaned by hand labour. Tho vessel has- to be dry-docked for the' pur pose, aud, valuable time is lost. By the ndw process a hull can be scrub bed whilst the ship lies at anchor for coaling or the shipment of cargo. It is claimed • that a vessel ,100 to 500 ft.ct long, with an average draft, can bo cleaned in. a- working day. The apparatus consists of an electrically operated, roller brush, suspended by cabled from a specially constructed barge,- and made to press against tlie side of a vessel by tho i'orco of a screw propeller. Tho barge carries a very compact petrol electric generat ing set, and tho power thus produced is made to operate tho winches and tho scouring brushes. In...

A BETTER DANCER. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 25 June 1914
A BETTER DANCER. Two "wild Hielandmen," recruits of a famous kilted corps, were visiting an English church lor the first time. They had not long been seated when toe organist began to play a lively voluntary. This was something quite novel in their church experience, u&lt;nd they listened in open-mouthed aston ishment. One of them was shortly roused from his blissful reverie by a gentle tap npon the shoulder. Turning round, lu> saw a handsome lady, the owner of the pew, who smiled' graci ously upon him and wished, of course, to be allowed to pass to her s at. He did not, however, take in the situa -ion. "Na, na, mem, tak ma mate here," he whispered to her audibly, "he will be a better dancer than mel"

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN BOORT. RAILWAY TERMINUS HOTEL BURNT. WHOLE BUILDING RAPIDLY DEMOLISHED. POOR WATER SUPPLY. NARROW ESCAPES FROM EXPLOSION. ONLY THE PIANO SAVED [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 25 June 1914
DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN BOORT. RAILWAY TERMINUS HOTEL BURNT. WHOLE BUILDING RAPIDLY ► DEMOLISHED. POOR WATER SUPPLY. NARROW ESCAPES FROM EXPLOSION. ONLY THE PIANO SAVED The residents of Boort were aroused on Monday just befoTe midnight by the ringing of the firebell, and the people flocked to the scene of the outbreak, which was found to be at Downing's Railway Terminus hotel. Flames were leaping high out of the ioof, and were spreading with rapidity all through the building. The firemen turned out promptly and soon got their appliances at work, but the pressure was so poor it left them almost helpless. It was at once apparent that there was not the slightest hope of saving the hotel buildings, as the whole of the interio: was a mass of flacre. For tunately, very-few in the hotel had retired lor vUe »igbt, and «xos&lt;t who had gone to bed were quickly roused up and assisted to a place of safety. The firemen at once directed their energies to saving Mr' W. H. Elliott's premises ...
THE USE OF BOTH HANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 25 June 1914
THE USE OF BOTH HANDS. Arguing from the fact that there is uo sound reason why the left hand should not Lie developed equally with the right hand, says a writer in The English Mechanic, and from the fur ther fact that many physicians- who have given the matter some study see in the use of both hands to the same extent very satisfactory results on the general health, school authorities in Uermany have made left-hand work (luring part of the time compulsory on the student. Much of the mechanical work that is now done with the right hand could be done as weli with the icrt hand, if that member were sufficiently train ed, and the division of ffiboiir tnu» made possible would not °n-y result in more efficient work, but an moreased quantity of it. It is, of course, very evident that when both hands aro equ ally dexterous, they may bo used al ternately, and the worker never need stop for rest; for as soon as ono band gets tired he can use the other. Accordingly the German authori ties have...

A SECOND ALARM. royal exchange stabl ing ablaze. two buggies BADLY damaged. Scarcely had the people settled down in their own homes on Mon day night, or rather Tuesday morn ing, before they were again alarmed : by the ringing of the firebell. This | was about 3 a.m., and- the firs thoughts were that the fire had by some means crossed to Mr Elliott's This proved, however, not to be the case. . The firemen -who had been left in charge of the hotel fire noticed a glare at the back of the Royal Exchange hotel. Some of them went to investigate, while others made for the firebell. It was discovered that a load pf straw which had been placed in._one of the open stable stalls the previous • | evening was ablaze, and was burn ing fiercely. The flames were al ready running along the ridge of the building, and a buggy and covered waggonette, wlvch were owned 'by .Mr L. Waters, were all alight. No time was lost in get ting them in the open, where llie flames were beaten out, but not before the ...
TEACHING OF CINEMA. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 25 June 1914
TEACHING OF CINEMA. People who have tho cause of edu cation so earnestly at heart aB to oar© nothing at all about my pocket (or yours), have been suggesting lately, that the bioscope would make a popu lar substitute for the blackboard in our elementary schools. The ordin ary school curriculum would almost certainly then be extended to include such subjects as:— The Habits of -the Tittlebat, in Peace and War. Pachyderms of the Peloponnesian Peninsula. Half-an-Hour with a Hornet. And so on. And knowledge of this kind is not to be exchanged for ail the riohes of Golconad, as youthll learners may, in after life, have oc casion to. find out for themselves. It is true tliat large numbers of the male scholars will, in a few years' time, probably be honest British work men, living sturdily on strike pay; while theid sisters will be smashing crockery, agitating for more OveningB out, and wondering what to goodness the Old Cat will expect of them next. Still, 'some of them may want to write e...
Worries of a Journalist. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 25 June 1914
Worries of a Journalist. An accused person, when before a court recently objected to the re porters being present. When the arresting constable was stepping into the box, defendant asked the presiding magistrate if the evidence to be given was in connection with his case. The police informed him that it' was. "Then .I object to these reporters," he vigorously protested. "I won't have this get into the papers. It's a scanda lous case altogether." His protest aT ailed him nothing, of course, but his attitude was characteristic of many others who get into court. .They all think that a newspaper ■should be published without news —of the description what they do not want to see published. . Some times (but rarely) a happening of a different kind occurs. In a wes tern district town recently a .man. was proceeded against under the Police Offences Act and was-fined £2, with - 6s costs, the' case being heard ex parte. Presumably the defendant was too busy, to leave his work to attend court. ...
A BIT OF THIS ALPHABLT. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 25 June 1914
A BIT OF THIS ALPHABLi . Two commercial travellers in a rail way carriage entered into conversa tion. One of them tried very hard to make the other understand something, but ho was either very hard of hear ing, or slow in believing. At last his friend lost his temper and exclaimed: "Why, don't you see: It's as plain as A B C!" "That may be," said the other; "hut, you see, I am D E F."
