met all the ends thou aim'st at be thy: country's, thy God's, and truth'.. SATURDAY, JULY'11, 19i14?i District News BRIGHTON. The municipality of Brighton has a reputation for the best and cleanest roads in the metropolis, but in. the town there are still several streets to which imprbovement might be effected. -ay street, at the railway crossing, is one instance where some attention is required. During the past week, this part of the road has been a stretch of slush and mud, making it unpleasant for pedestrians to cross from one side of the line to the other. This state of affairs is due to the churning up of the railway yard by the heavy loads from the siding. .The slush, etc., is carried out on' the wheels to the road where it is. allowed to remain and create a nuisance.. This.could be easily" remedied by the Railways Department providing a proper metal .road inside the siding, and also putting. down tarred macadam at the crosisug as in other suburbs. i 1 At the Brighton Court ye...

IN-. THE DOME OF THE CAITOL. 'A Remarkable Echo and a Curleus ' Oharacter in Washington. When visitors climb the tortuous stair. .ase to the dome of the Capitol at Wash Sinton; a voice gives them friendly greoet. inag when they are at a particularly steep angle of the stairs. Many a young co .ple have been startled by this greeting ae they look up at the whispering gallery above and over at the pigmies on the floor of the rotunda below. They look at the black walls about them and the dark stairs windinc above and conclude that it is another of the remarkable Cap :itol echoes; until another greeting reaches them, and through an arch in, the wall they see the old man who lives in the dome. A curious character is this old man of the dome. He is a tall and well-built man, with remarkably bright eyes and a clear,. ruddy, complexion, and would scarcely be called the "old" man except fir his white hair and beardl. With his cheery good-day he sometimes disturbs a cosy couple, but he is so s...

Peppermint Oil. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 11 July 1914

i Peppermint Oil. * In reply t se'enral queries from corre spondentl who wish to experiment in Sgrowin' pepplermint for makin pDcpper mint oil the following directions from California Fruit-Grower are given: The only cultivation required is to keep the ground free Iromn weeds. A field yields two crops. The sets or parts of old plants are planted in April and lMay in rows two feet apart, and they grow two feet high. The harvesting is done.in August, and the atalks:are cut down with a scythe and allowed to stay in the sun for some hours, as the oil is more easily extracted when the plants are wilted. A wooden vat, hooped with iron, makes the still, which is four feet deep and six in diameter. Into this the mint is pressed and steam is forced into it, while the vapor is condensed, as in any still. The mixed oil and water is collected, then separated, the oil being placed- in tin Scans. All the waste-is fed to the cattle. The oil is worth'froinm'$ to $a a pound. The making of peppermint...

A Living Microscope. John Thomas llelsop, of Birmingham, England, is a lad whobse powers of vision are marvellous. lie is known as "the living microscope," on account of being able to see the most minute objects clearly defined, says the Springfield Re publican. In 1878 or 1879 he was at tacked. with somebaffling eye trouble and came very near losing his sight forever. After the disease had reached its worst there was an instant and startling change for the better, which resulted in a com plete cure of all inflammation in an in credibly short time. It was not a cure, however, that brought back the old ore sight like that possessed by the averago genus homo. When it returned it was with extraordinarily increased powers of rviion. To John Thomas the most minute plant parasite was :as large as a rabbit, and the mosquito's bill as large as an ax handle. lie could see and describe dis tant minute objects with startling clear ness and precision. HIe was amazingly shocked upon repairing to...

COMPRESSED FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 11 July 1914

COMPRESSED FODDER., The compressed fodder trade repre: seats one of the most promising'out lets for surplus farm crops.: Th, foods. used comprise chaff from wheat 'oats, lucerne, and so on; and oats, maize, bran,' and other. cereal pro ducts. For. these there is. practically no export market, and good seasot, result 'in . such reduced values that the large yields from' the farms repre sent very small profits. Wheat-grow ers in this country know that; how ever heavy their crops' may be, there is no danger of the yields pulling down the price, since that is con trolled by the world's supply. .But the maize, oats, and lucerne growers strike bad markets whenever there ,is a fair crop from the greater part of the area planted. By the compressed fodder process It is possible to find markets in the East, inSouth Africa, and elsewhere, and the time may come when a large'business will be done with the United Kingdom. Ths cost of preparing the fodder is about 12/- per ton, which is not a very...
