Discounting Racecourse Winnings. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
Discounting Racecourse Winnings. A curious kind of discount business is carried on in connection with the French "I'tiri-Mutuel" system of bet ting on the racecourse. It should be explained that those who wish to bet on a French racecourse have to take a ticket for five, ten, or fifty francs nt one of the offices of the "Pari-Mutuel." Each ticket is numbered, and the number corres ponds with tho number of the horse; so that, in asking for a ticket, one simply asks for No. So-and-So. The names and numbers of tho horses, as well as thoso of tho Joc keys, are shown on a large board before lhs start. After the start no more betting is allow'ed. When the race is finished the money is counted,- and all the money placed on the losing horses is divided among the winners in their proper propor tion, the administration taking a percentage for expenses and tax. It will bo easily seen, therefore, that when your horse has won, you are alyays in a delightful state of uncertainty as to how much yo...

JERUSALEM. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
JERUSALEM. 1 Very shortly the sacred streets of tho Holy City will hum with tho nolso of electric cars, and its raoro Important thoroughfares will bo illuminated at night with tho brilliant electric filnmont. Its old picturesque walls and masslvo towers are to bo pulled down, and tho city is to have an adequate] water supply. Tho rapidity with which Jerusa lem is extending, through tho return of the Jews in such largo numbers to tho city of their forefathers, has (says an "Express" correspondent) rendered these improvements neces sary. i Indeed, to tho north and west of tho old city thcro liavo sprung up, within tho last decade, largo Jewish colonics, populous residential sections, as well as convents, hos pices, institutions, schools,, and other buildings, with the result that to-day thoro is a greater Jerusalem without tho walls than within.

Of interest to Mac. There was no doubt about the fact that Jack JIacFaddy. was a Scotsman. Last year, when journeying to the country on an important errand, ho loft . his purse, containing nearly £100 in gold and' silver,- at tho railway station from which ho storied. ' Ho telegraphed the fact "oil his arr rival, and the purse was kept till his return a month later. It was a young clerk-who handed Jockie MacF. his wee purse with the "spondies" as ho net foot out of tho train,' and certain wild hopes were making that young iron's heart beat a trifle unevenly. But our ennny Scot counted his money unheeding,- and whon he'd finished lie looked up long and sus piciously at the young' limn.'

The Express, PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY FRIDAY, JUNE 12, 1914. News and Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
C(je (fejjress, PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY FRIDAY, JUNE 12, 1914. News and Notes. At yesterday's meeting of the Korong Shire Council, the president (Or O'Brien) moved that the following motion be placed on the business Bheet of the Municipal Conference : "That the Government be urged to supply tho valuations made by the State valuer to all municipalities at a nominal cost." The mover said that the council recently applied to the State Land Tax department for its valuation of the shire, and was in formed that the same would be avail able at the end of the year on pay ment by the shire of £215. Seeing that the shire is a public body, said Cr O'Brien, requiring the valuation for taxation purposes, and that the muni cipalities are called upon to supply the Government with a good deal of information for nothing, it seemed only fair that the valuation should be supplied free, plus the clerical costs. There were 208 municipalities in Victoria, and taking the above as an average, the charge lev...
FOWLS NEED ANIMAL FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
FOWLS NEED ANIMAL FOOD. There is put into the make-up of every fowl a chronic longing for ani mal food; they have to have it; their body demands it to keep lis flesh firm, its feathers bright, its comb richly red, and its egg-making mechanism in good producing order. The whole reproduc tive economy order-most vital ques tion of "fertile eggs" and decent per cent, hatches-hinges right on this supply, and preach, entreat, explain as we may. we cannot get a large number of poultry-men to believe it, or think about it- H is possible to explain to some that eggs, which the never-tiring hen is being forever urged to increase in number, must he provided for in the food. Can it not be made as plain that fertile eggs can only result from the proper nutriment being furnished to the cock? He most certainly can not make bricks without straw, nor fertilise a good per cent, of eggs mere ly by meditation and prayer. There is a deeper tone, more of "here is the real thing" sound, to Papa Rooster's ...
Leaning Tower of Pisa. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
Leaning- Tower of Pisa. Here is a- sketch of the famous leaning tower of Pisa, in Italy, which leans a little more than six feet in eighty. The works of this tower were begun in 1174, and the structure was completed towards the middle of the fourteenth century. Its height is 167ft. from a base of 146ft. in circumference. The peculiarity of tho inclination is not duo to accident but to tho plan on which the architect constructed the tower. A staircase of 294 steps leads to the top,» from whiclj point there is a, splendid view. On tho third tier of the .tower a feeling of vertigo attacks ; those - ascending, anil it is this Which accounts' for many suicides committed here.
HINTS ON MIXING FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
HINTS ON MIXING FERTILISERS. Sulphate of ammonia should not bb mixed with basic slag or any manure containing tree lime. Sulphate of ammonia can he mixed with superphosphate, guano, hone meal, dissolved bones, fcainit, sulphate of potash or muriate of potash. Nitrate of soda should not he mix ed with superphosphate, dissolved boneB, dissolved guano, or any other dissolved manure. If it is desired to mix it with any of these fertilisers, the mixing operation must be perform ed just before application. Superphosphate or dissolved bones should not be mixed with basic slag, or bone flour, as if so, the soluble phos phate in the manure would become partly Insoluble. Kainit and muriate of potash do not mix well with superphosphate or any other dissolved manure. Sulphate of potash should always bo used for such mixtures. Before mixing, the different materi als should be well broken up and rid dled.
FOOLHARDY GUIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914
FOOLHARDY GUIDES. The guides who conduct tourists to Vesuvius often go to ridicu lous risks to amuse their patrons. A favourite expedient is to take an egg and put it into a small fis sure in tho mountain side to bo boiled by tho heat. Tha tourist Is not allowed to leavo tho path and go to tho fissure, so docs not re alise that tho guide, in order to roach a point whore the trick is practicable, has to walk across a layer of lava which is so tbln that it .may break at any moment. Should it do so, the man's logs will go through into actually mol ten lava, with fatal results. Tho Italians seem to think nothing of tho risk, nnd gladly undergo it to earn a franc, or oven for bra vado's sake, to amuso tho tourist who is employing them. Ono of the most daring exploits on rccord is that of a steeplo climber, who, somo years ago, con ceived tho novel idea of celebrating tho Emperor's birthday by climb ing the stoepU of St. Stephen's at Vienna, and thero hoisting a flng.
