THE AMAZING ANT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 15 March 1934
THE AMAZING ANT. A French naturalist, observing . ants in Africa, reports ^that he put some grain in a box on the top of a pole. , The ants climbed the pole, and at first carried the stuff away, grain by grain, down the pole. But the second day they had thought out a- oetter way. Two gangs appeared, one' to climb the pole, the other to receive the grain dropped to them by the top gang. ? Bands of glue were then painted' round the stick, but the ants, after a few of them hadi been caught, built ? a dyke oyer the gum, using sand and earth for their bridge. The box was then placed on! a tripod, which was put in a pan o'f water. . For a long time the ants seemed to ' be thinking this puzzle out. t They appeared again, quite prepared' for their task. A file : of them were carrying leaves and tiny twigs, with which they formed a pontoon bridge to one leg of the tripod, and so reached the grain. The investigator was most interested to observe that the ants chose floating materials to ? bui...
INDIAN'S TALL SCORE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 15 March 1934
INDIAN'S TALL SCORE. In a match this season, J. Have wallah, of tKe Bombay Club, scored 453 not out. This is the biggest score ever made by an Indian. To Eradicate Blackberries. — One method is to cut off the blackberries close to the- ground, disturb the. earth near the stems and pour on a solu tion made by dissolving lib. of caus tic soda in one gallon of water. A second method is to cut the black berries near to the ground, touise the stems, and then pour, over them a strong brine made by boiling rock salt in water. A third way is to clear the earth away from the roots a little and sprinkle freely with coarse salt. If. a little water can be poured round to carry €he salt to the roots, the process will 'be. con siderably accelerated. . ? '

ENGLISH MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 15 March 1934
V ENGLISH MARKET. ?Messrs T. Boss-Walker Pty. Ltd., of Hobart, are in receipt of advice from Messrs Yeoward Bros., Liver pool, under' date of January 25th, to the following : — Trices varying from about 11/ to 13/6 a case continue to be! made for the principal varie ties of American apples. It is gen erally accepted here that shipments of apples from Canada and U.S.A. will be much smaller during the re mainder of the present season than they have been in previous years, andi a.i'e likely to finish earlier. Con sequently 'early shipments of Aus tralians are likely to do very well. What will happen later on in the Australian season is still a matter of cenjecture. Prices will largely de pend) upon the regularity and ap proximate equality in ' size of the weekly arrivals throughout the sea son. If we are to have the/ same ? congestion of arrivals as last year, ? . - efforts made to improve matters in other directions may be rendered null and void.

Toll of the Coast PROTECTING AUSTRALIA'S SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 22 March 1934
Toll of the Coast PROTECTING AUSTRALIA'S SHIPPING. Roughly, 1900 vessels have been lost in Australian waters since 1826. King Island, in Bass Strait, has claimed 42 wrecks, with the loss of 424 lives. D'Entrecastaux Channel has a record almost as bad. Many of these shipwrecks occurred before the coast was properly charted, and when lights and navigation marks were ferw and far hstwppn. Now modern science, with remarkable navigation devices and accurate charts, has combined with the almost infallible lighting system of the coast to reduce risk to a minimum. Recently the Government light house steamer Cape York left Wil liamstown on- ' her quarterly visit to the Tasmanian group of lights. On the cruise the Cape York will visit Hunter, Goose, Swan, Deal, Bruni, Tasman and, Maatsuyker Islands. Maatsuyker, which is Australia's southernmost light, is probably the most desolate. Great waves, born in t)he icy waters of the Antarctic, hurl themselves on Maatsuyker's rocky cliffs. Few ships p...
