FLOWERY. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 September 1914

" 'Oh, how hot the horrid sori",J r-"-.. soft miss whispered to my hearing. If refuge there was it was only in the gymkhana pavilion. Certainly in a beautiful manner the angels of Eng land showed a clean pair of heels to the other end of the green lawn, where they made for tho pavilion. "The sight was goodlier than Fri day's. The crowd was more multitu dinous. The lady population prepon derated. "Thero was a rider who fell and then the horse did "yell." The horse with tho least number of faults jump ed with joy and raced in mirth. For he was the first and foremost. "In one event there were threo prizes in the card, but there were only two competitors in the field. . . Hand-iu-glove were they. The pony and rider roll and reel in jolly mirth. The ladies mutter words of praise. The gent'emen whistle wlioops of joy."

WHY HE WAS PLAYED. A well-known cricketer told us this story the other day:— Me ' was staying in a small country village and on the local half-holiday he wont to see tho village cricket club play on the green. Afterwards ho il.scussed the match with the captain and ventured, to make a few criticisms. "There was one man playing for you to-day," he said, "that I can't think why you have him in the team at all." The captain nodded wearily. "X know who you mean," he said. "Jones, the man who went in last." "Yes, that's the man," replied the other. "Why do you play him? He can't bat, he can't bowl, and he miss ed at least two easy catches." The fellows will have him in the team," grumbled the captain. "Why? Is he so popular?" asked tho critic. "Great Scot, no!" exclaimed the captain. "The fellows hate him like poison. But his three sisters are the prettiest girls in tho village, and they always come and watch the match when ho plays."

A CANNON WITH 93 MILES RANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 September 1914

i. A CANNON WITH 93 MILES RANGE. A new efcctro-mngncMc cannon has boon sold to a German firm, by Pro fessor Jlirkckuu!, whose experiments pro\e its capacity of firing a two ton projectile to ft distance of 12J jniles. It is claimed that on this principle the firing' capacity of n gim increases with the length of the ban-el, and that with a barrel «^2ft. lOin. long the cannon would fire a two-ton projectile the enormous dis tance of D3 miles. The gun is expected to prove cheaper to manufacture than those now' in use, as there is no pressure from "powder Rases to provide a gainst. and the barrels can be con structed from cheap iron tubes with a casing of copper wires to convey the electric current. Norwegian experts are confident that nothing so revolutionary in artillery has boon seriously proposed since the invention of gunpowder.

A CHINESE INCUBATOR. HOW HENS' AND DUCKS' EGGS ARE HATCHED UNDER EICE. Iu an American consular report pub lished is described an ingenious method by which Chinees in the district adja cent to Amoy hatch both hen's and ducks' eggs. The breedor first takes a quantity of unhusked rice and roasts it, cooling it down by fanning or by allowing the wind to blow through until it is luke warm. He then spreads a three-inch layer of the rice in a wooden tub, and places about 100 eggs thereon; another layer of rice, the second and subsequent layers being about two inches in thick ness, is spread over the eggs. Each tub has six layers of rica and five layers of eggs, so that there are 500 eggs in each tub. The rice is heated oneo every twenty-four hours, the eggs being taken out at such times. When the eggs are again put in the rice the bottom layer is placed on top and each of the other layers one row lower down, while the eggs previously in the centre of the tub are placed at the edge.
