Dogs Distribute Disease. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 26 June 1914

Dogs Distribute Disease. Two of the most learned French professors of the Pasteur Institute have issued the following warning : .'Beware of your pet dq>g." Street clogs of Marseilles have been found suffering from the dread ful Indian "black pest." In India this disease usually attacks dogs, and as many as ninety-eight per cent, die from its ravages. The southern parts of Italy and Algeria know the disease under the name of the "Mediterranean pest." This disease does not confine it self to the dogs themselves, but is carried by parasites to human be ings, and, singularly enough, m-sarly always attacks children from the ages of six months to three years. The child becomes feverish and ner vous, goes into a decline, a ltd gra dually wastes away. Out. of three hundred cases under special study only two per cent, have recovered. At the present time Great Britain is immune from any danger in this direction, and sufliciently protected against any such likelihood by the complete prohibi...

A Monster of the Deep. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 26 June 1914

A Monster of the Deep. The most formidable and repulsivo creature o! the submarine world is the giant octopus, commonly known as the spider-crab. It is master 01" the scaled and finned things that live in the ocean's depths. It is alike hideous in appearance and habits, and more than one daring coral hunter and pearl-diver has found death in its terrible arms. The spider-crab flourishes and at tains its greatest size in the warm waters of the Japan seas. An adequate idea of the hideousness of the creature's appearance can only be formed by those who have come across the monster in its lair. Its shape bears a strong resemblance to the familiar spinning insect. The long legs, which often exceed forty feet in length, are thickly covered with coarse black hair. The body, often fifteen feet in cir cumference, is also covered with hnir, in which barnacles and tinjr shellfish make their home. When attacked, the spider-crab exudes an overpowering odour, which permea tes -the water around it...

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. TRIAL OF THE DORSETSHIRE LABORERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 26 June 1914

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. ? V TRIAL OF THE DORSETSHIRE LABORERS. The first important epoch in the history of modern British labour . politics was tho formation, in 183<i, of the Grand National Consolidated Trades Union, a rea\ly important association, -numbering as it did half a million adherents, who represented every branch of labour, including agriculture. Even women's unions were affiliated. Tho tremendous possibilities of such a united b^dy of workers naturally aroused the attention of the governing classes, and a prosecution was instituted for "unlawful conspiracy," of which the most salient incident is that of tho Dorchester labourers. At this period, when the average wage of the English farmhand was 10s. a week, the Dorset laborers re ceived 7s. Half a dozen of such men, Methodists and local preachers, started a "Grand Lodge of the Na tional Friendls' Society of Agri cultural Labourers" at Tolpuddlo (Dorsetshire). Some farmers insti tuted a prosecution for "conspi...

And poor J ones found himself j alone with the man in the com- I parlment of a railway train which ran without a stop from Crowe to London.

The Ether of Space. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 26 June 1914

The Ether of Space. Sir Oliver Lodge delivered a lec ture at Bedford College, the other day, on the "Ether of Space." He stated that "he was not sure " about the ether being cohesive or not. Mr. G. T. Row ley now writes :-"I would like to project, the theory that ether beyond the boundary of our gaseous atmosphere can be no other than cohesive, be cause it is certain that there are no gases or dust, or vapour, of any description to separate the parti cles of ether in the unfathomable space. Therefore it must be pure, and, being pure, must essentially be cohesive. Not so where it abounds in our atmosphere, for the molecules of oxygon and hydrogen, together with the other gases, being con stantly changed by the climatic influences, interfere with the cohes ion of ether. It might be said of the inexplicable nature of radium, that it is a substance which dis agrees with the particles of ether coming into contact with its sur face, and throws them off again, making the undulations appare...

Rare British Moth. ENTOMOLOGISTS AND THE THOMPSONI. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 26 June 1914

ENTOMOLOGISTS AND THE THOMPSON!. This moth, which is a striking example of the curious colour variation common among insects, birds, and animals, Is a special ob ject of interest to entomologists, in view of the recent discovery of a new and third variety by Mr. J. Thompson, a Chester entomologist. This form of tho insect appears at present to bo confined to Dela mere Forest, Cheshire, and is very rare. It is named Thompsoni, after its discoverer, and is black, with a conspicuous white border to its wings. In its second variety the moth exhibits the first culminating stage of variation, and i9 black, with grey wing fringes, a change to a darker hue from the common or ordinary tj-pe. The second variety, of which we al so give an illustration, is named Robsoni, of Hartlepool. Neither of these varieties, however, is an abrupt transition, for between tho typical insect and each of them ave var ious intermediate forms.

When Walking is Hard Work. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 26 June 1914

When Walking is Hard Work. People often express surprise that soldiers on the march cover only ten or twelve miles of" ground per day. Even then a good many men fall out through fatigue, some faint, and the whole are completely done up at the end of the day. But the soldier is, nevertheless, a first-rate walker. It is all a mat i ter of foot-tons of energy expond ! ed. Take an ordinary laborer, and j his day's work will lie eqvial to , j :}00 tons lifted one foot high. An eleven-stone man., walking seventeen miles on the level, does the same j amount of muscle work. But mark, if he carries an overcoat weighing 61b., ho does oil foot- j tons. | Xow, the soldier is a regular I pack-horse, and the kit thn.1 he car ries averatres about GOlb. in weight. I So that he does exactly as much j work in a twelve-mile march as an j ordinary man in his seventeen-mile ! walk. j Besides, the soldier has to "break camp" before starting, and at the j finish of the march he has to pitch j camp, draw w...

Porter's Coats as Afghan Uniforms. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914

Porter's Coats as Afghan Uniforms. 1 The Amir of Afghanistan is ex ceedingly anxious to Westernise his country, but it is rumoured that some of his subjects are not taking kindly to the reforms. The latest step which the Amir has taken is to insist on the ladies of his Court wearing European clothes. Recently dozens of elaborately-de signed costumes were ordered from Paris. Early this year, says a Bombay correspondent, a representative of a Bombay tailor visited Kabul at the invitation . of the Amir, and high-class clothes to the value of £'3,000 were sold to the ladies and gentlemen of the Court. The ladies were not permitted to be seen per sonally or to be measured for their garments, but their measurements were sent out to the tailor. The ladies selected their dresses from pictures of the latest Parisian fashions, and after the costumes had been supplied his Majesty gave a garden-party at which the dresses were displayed. Many amusing features about this craze for European dress ...

How Kipling was Interviewed in America. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914

How Kipling was Inter viewed in America. . ? In Chicago, considerably more than twenty years ago, I obtained a chance interview from Iludyard Kipling. At that time Kipling, ^.ho was just beginning to achieve fame through his "Plain Tales from the Hills" and " Soldiers Three," had little use for this country. For one thing, he had tried to make a living with his pen in San Francisco, and had failed. Kipling was in a decidedly crab bed humour when he reached Chi cago on this occasion, and not with out reason. He was on his way from Australia to England. On, shipboard he had made up his mind that he would do no talking for newspapers when he reached this country. 'He would not see the San Francisco reporters who be sieged him. But some of them wrote "interviews" with him any how. In the main they were high ly ridiculous, imaginary interviews, and they put Kipling in a very foolish light. The same thing hap pened in Seattle, Cheyenne,, Denver, Omaha, and other cities where he stopped on...
