®he " ©sprees." 'Established 1873.) 'UJr.Ha'."J TJ330VY A.*0 I'ACJ'.V MORNINOI FRIDAY. APRIL 17, 1914. Ii ASTER. We have just celebrated the Easter festival commemorating one of the greatc-.st mysteries of religion, the Resurrection, which was the essential coinpiement of the Incarnation and Death, and which consummated the Saviours triumph over sin and death as well as the fulfilment of prophecy. Unlike Christmas and some other festivals celebrated by the church, Easter is a movable feast whose incidence is regulated by astronomi cal conditions. In ancient days the Christians held the Kaster feast on the same day as the Jewish Passover, that is on the fourteenth day, or full moon, after the 21st March—the vernal equinox in' the uortheru hemisphere aud the autumnal equinox in Australia aud the Southern hemisphere. Ou. that date the sun is vertical to the equator, and in the home countries it heralds the advent of Spring and the approach of Summer with its I welcome warmth and the re...
When She Began To Think. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
When She Began To Think, '' "Biddy," said Pat timidly, "did ye ■iver think o' marryin'?" „ "Shure now," said Biddy, looking de jmurely at her shoe—"sliure now, the ■subject has niver entered me mind "at all, at all." "It's sorry, Oi am," said Pat, and he turned away. "Wan minute. Pat," said Biddy soft ly. "Ye've set me tliinkin'." The ignorance of the masses on ar tistic matters is appalling (sai'd Mr. Walter Emanuel, speaking at a dis cussion on "Execution in Literature and Painting" at the Authors' Club recently) t He was passing through one exhi bition recently when he saw a group of persons. One of them said, "Is it a droring?" • The reply was, "No, stupid, it's an -itching." A third person interrupted and said, "No, you are 'both wrong; it's a pas tille."
A Schoolboy Essay. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
A Schoolboy Essay. "A figgerative saying is—to keep the wolf from the door. It does not mean to keep a real live wolf from the door. A good instance is when the landlord conies for the rent. He knocks at the door, and you keep aw ful quiet in the hope that he will think there is nobody in, and go away."
NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN For many years Europeans strove in vain to master the art of a certain kind of painting executed by the Chinese. It was a comparatively easy matter to obtain the materials, viz., the brushes, paints and the particular kind of paper used—but there the matter ended. They failed to get the paper to "take" the paints. Persuasion and bribes alike failed to extract from the wily Oriental the secret of applying the colors, and for years the art remained the knowledge of the Chinese. It fell to the lot of a young English bank-clerk to discover the secret. One day—unknown to the artists he was watching them at work. He was struck by the fact that each time before dipping the brush into the paints, they rubbed it through their hair vigorously a few times. He procured the necessary mater ials and tried to put the colors on, in the ordinary way of course, without success. He then cleaned the brush, rubbed it through liis hair a few times and again essayed the experime...

AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. The Australian eucalyptus, or, as it is commonly called, the gum tree, has a world-wide reputation. It has been grown successfully in many countries, and in New Zealand it has been found that its growth is, in favorable spots, faster than in Australia.*" In Brazil, in which country the eucalyp tus was first introduced a quarter of a century ago, the authorities have came to recognise its intrinsic value for timber. Some ten years ago the systematic culture of the tree was be gun, and recently Senhor Andrade, Chief of the Forest Service in Brazil, came to Australia to secure further varieties, and to consult with Mr. Maiden, Director of the Sydney Bo tanic Gardens, who is regarded as the chief authority on eucalypti. The Gov ernment of Brazil desires to cultivate the tree for the sake of the timber, which is eminently suitable for rail way sleepers and also for fuel for railway locomotives. Even in_ Austra lia it has been found necessity to re sort to reaffores...
The Value of Seed Grading. AN INDESPENSIBLE OPERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
The Value of Seed Grading. AN INDKSPIiNSIBLK OPERATION. The grower of wheat and other cereals reckons to be at work with his seeding early in April, and one thing that he cannot afford to for get is the gtading of the seed. The usual condition of seed grain is that after coming through the thrashing machine or through the winnower, after the stripper or the combined harvester, it is propably passed a second time through the ordinary winnower, and then to all appear ance is passadly clean- -Npfhing, however, is so striking to the far uier who first uses a seed grader as the quantity of rubbish in thefshape of wildcats, drake and others weed seeds that are taken out, not to speak of small shrivelled seed that only grows partially, and split abd bruised graiu that does not grow at all." The reason for this is that the grader, while resembling the j wintiower in its outward appearance is altogether different inside' with regard to the character of itsseives as well as their methods of w...

FORTUNE OF THE GLYNS By Geo. R. Sims. I. At six o'clock on a December morn ing Barbara Malleson held the candle aloft and looked around the little bedroom which had been hers ever aince she could remember. She was dressed and ready to iktart t>n the first long journey she had ever taken from home. She opened the bedroom door and called softly down the stairs, "Jenny, is breakfast ready?" The old sen-ant, the only one they kept at the vicarage, came hurriedly to her. "Yes, Miss Barbara, everything': ready but, oh; my dear, must you go?—must you go?" "Yes, Jenny, of course I must; bu' pioase, please don't make it harder lor me than It is" Jenny Polwaite's eyes were very rod, and the tears were still in them "It's dreadful, Sliss Barbara," she moaned. "I've known and loved you most from a baby, and I can't beai tc think you're going all alone to that terrible London." "But I'm not going to alone, Jen nv.

THE HONORED GUEST I. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
THE HONORED GUEST Derwent Miall. The room was in darkness, and the mood of the occupant was iblack. He lolled hack in a well-stuffed armchair, his eyes fixed abstractedly upon a dis tant constellation that showed through the open window, his inward 'vision entirely occupied in imaginary con templation of an archly provocative feminine face. Jock Ballina was esteemed by his intimates for a young man of re source—an adroit and amiably wilful person. But for the moment he saw no arts by which he might counter the weighty opposition "of Joshua Mul grave, M.P., to his marriage with Syl via, sole daughter and only hope of his mushroom house of Mulgrave. The room in which he sat was the dressing-room apportioned to his use during his stay at Hawes Park, the Mulgraves' magnificent, restored, re habilitated, re-decorated country house. Mr. Mulgrave had been a coun try neighbor of Jock's father for twen ty years, prospering' progressively all the while, whereas the Ballinas had marked time si...
Federation Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
Federation Wheat. This variety of. wheat fiuds much favor in our northern districts, and stands far ahead in the poll of ..the of the best wheats being taken 6y a Bendigo newspaper. Mr Richard son, superintendent of the Agri cultural Department says of this wheat:—This is, without question, the most popular and prolific variety of wheat in general cultivation at the present day.- - It was produced by the late Mr Farrer, wheat ex perimentalist, of New South Wales, from a cross -between Purple Straw and Yaudilla. Yaudilla is a cross between Improved Fife and Ktewah, an Indian variety. The production of this wheat was probably the greatest of Mr Farrer's mauy triumphs in wheat breeding, for none of his many successful cross bred wheats have enjoyed such a wide measure of popularity as Federation-. Indeed, during the last six years the golden yellow 1 characteristic of old time Australian j harvest fields has been gradually j changed to a dull bronze through I the ever-increasing popula...

Barbara had seen a good deal of Paris, but not nearly so much as she would have liked to. The count ess, who was a victim of moods, had s melancholy one soon after they ar rived in the Gay City, and went out very little- of an evening, and Bar bara had to remain with her in her rooms at the Elyseeef alace Hotel. .But after a few days they went on to Cambo, and in the charming little Chateau Barbara was supremely Happy. The view over the country was su perb, and the air of the Pyrenees was e&lt;> glorious that only to breathe it was to feel the joy of life. In Cambo she found the countess less exigent. Madame had visitors, and Barbara was not always invited to join them. She was told that she might make little excursions on her own account, and she did not fall to do so. The countess went out now more frequently than she had done in j^aris—and she went alone. The gossip of the servants at the Chateau speedily enlightened Bar bara • as to the change in he count ess's habits...

HOOPS. Witii the arrival of the hoop season, Jessie Pope sends me the following:— When you're walking good as gold Down the new suburban street, Where the villas to be sold Are inordinately neat, When you're musing with dejection On the latest by-election, Or brooding over business which is wearing rather thin, If there comes - a savage clanking And a swift metallic spanking And. a bounding loop of iron barks a segment of your shin— Pray accept the situation With submissive resignation— Hoops are in! When you're driving in your car With the luggage up behind, And a week-end free and far In the forefront of your mind— If a maiden small and sporting Sends a wooden sphere cavorting In the middle of the roadway with an oscillating spin, And all blue-eyed and seraphic Marks the panic of the traffic And the progress of her plaything with appreciative" grin— Prithee check your malediction: "Pis a time-honored affliction: Hoops are in! —London "Opinion.,,
Wheat Growing. THE IMPORTANCE OF FALLOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
Wheat Growing. THE IMPORTANCE OF FAL LOWING. Interesting light is thrown on the reasons for the small wheat yield iu the Mallee in a coiiimuni cation which the Minister for Water Supply, Mr Ilutchinson^has received, through the Minister for Public Works (Mr Hagelthorn) from Mr Thomas Young, of the firm of Young Bros., Horsham. Iu February last Mr Young feeling that the result of the harvest in the Mallee had been very, disappoint ing, sought the opinion of repre sentatives of his firm in the diffe rent Mallee districts, such as Beu lali, Birchip, Hopetoun, Jeparit, and Warrackuabeal. Questions were asked as to the kind of crofxs sown. on fallowed land, on land not fallowed, as to the depth of ploughing and the depths and methods of working the fallow, the area that could be fairly handled, and other kindred mat ters. Information was also sought as to successful methods of dry farming as involved in tallowing and surface cultivation to conserve moisture and store up practically two s...
THE AERIAL GULF STREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
THE AERIAL GULF STREAM. The Gulf Stream, when it leaves the Gulf of Mexico, enters the Atlantic with a speed of 8 kilometres an hour. It is 60 kilometres wide and 400 metres deep, and daily transports about 40 millions of milliards of ca lories. This enormous quantity of heat, of which it is almost impossible to obtain an exact idea, plays a funda mental role in the general climatology of the earth. Strangely enough, it is .this stream of hot water, exercising its temperature action on the coasts it waters, which is the direct cause of the existence of deserts. And this "is how. Water is one of the bodies in which heat is the most easily pre served, and consequently the Gulf Stream, even in high latitudes, still keeps an enormous quantity of heat. The masses of air that rest on these hot waters are kept at a temperature higher than the surrounding tempera ture, and form a veritable aerial gulf stream superposed over the marine current. But the aerial current is not like the marine o...
