A TRAITOR DEGRADED. Stripped of His Uniform in Public. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 4 September 1908
A TRAITOR DEGRADED. Stripped of Hia Uniform in Public.i "Ullmo, Benjamin, iCIiarles, you are unworthy to Wear tllie uniform of the Republic, and by law we hereby de grade you." Captain. Duthiel, wliosc duty it was to perform the dramatic ceremony of degrading Lieutenant Ullmo, the opium eater who tried to sell the sec rets of his country to Germany, stood facing the prisoner. Behind him stood 150 army and navy officers of all ranks. Around the prisoner was a guard of eigilit sailors carrying t'heir rifles with bayonets fixed, and by the Governor's side a quarter-master .who, as Cap tain Duthiel finished reading the sen tence, stepped up and lafd his 'hand on Ullmo's shoulder. The degradation took place in the morning (writes a correspondent of the "iDaily lixpress") in the Place St. Roch at Toulon-a dustry square sur rounded by palm trees. Although it was only nine o'clock, the sun beat pitilessly down, showing the face of the traitor officer, livid in its pallor, with red eyelids a...

OUT OF HIS ELEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 4 September 1908
OUT OF HIS ELEMENT. A party of tourists, including a, fa mous Presbyterian divine, was travel ling in a very thinly-populated district of Northern Canada. One day, while travelling across country, the party passed a small cluster of huts whose owners live by ifishing and trapping. 'Seeing an in telligent-looking boy leaning against one of the doors, the minister thought he would inquire concerning the prev alent religion. Going up to the boy, he said "snug little concession this! Have you any Presbyterians in the village?" The boy looked puzzled for a mo ment, then said-"I guess I don't rightly know, sir; but father caught some kind of a crittur in a trap, last, night. Take a look at it; it may be what you want." .
THE BEEKEEPER. PUTTING ON SUPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 4 September 1908
THE BEEKEEPER, SUITING ON SUPERS. It is often hard for the amateur bee keeper to tel! just when to put on su pers. If put on too early the amount of air space which must be kept warm by the bees is greatly increased, and brood rearing is likely to be severely checked. This is something that should be carefully avoided, as the future strength of the colony and its ability to store surplus honey and make profits for the beekeeper depends largely on the extent to which brood rearing is carried on at this season. On the other hahd, If the supers are not put on soon enough tho results art; nearly as bad. Tho combs become crowded with honey and the space de voted to brood rearing, is limited. The bees lose ambition when they get the hive fllled and after they have once got into the habit of idling, they are slow about going back to work again even after being supplied with plenty of room. If tho addition of room is de layed very long the bees will probably swarm before they begin to work ...
FRUIT GROWING IN ENGLAND. DAMAGE BY INSECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 4 September 1908
FRUIT GROWING IN ENGLAND. DAMAGE BY INSECTS. Considerable damage lias > been done to the fruit crops in England this sea son by insect and fungus pests. There appears to be little or no united action taken in regard to the suppression of them Judging by the following which appeared in the "Mark Lane Express" of 2nd June:-"A few weeks ago when apple trees In orchards and gardens were in full bloom, it was decided generally that, barring accidents, we should have bumping crops. No doubt there will be a nice lot of apples, but in .many places crops will not come up to early expectations, and for this insect pests are responsible. There has been a want of rain to wash away the foes, and when the fruits were 3etting many trees were crippled with the apple sucker, winter moth caterpillar, codlin moth caterpillar, and the apple blossom weevil, and crops are reduced in conse quence. "In country places the impression still exists that these pests, known compre hensively as 'blight,' are b...
FOOD SUPPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 4 September 1908
FOOD SUPPLIES. As soon as the weather 'begins to get warmer the bees will, become active. This will cause an extra quantity, of honey to be consumed. It is.from the time that breeding commences-that the danger of neglect lies, and every apiar ist should bo prepared for emergency feeding. All colonies should be examined cautiously, i.e., by raising the corner of the quilt and ascertaining if there are sealed stores, on some fine day. Should there be plenty, the outer combs may be placed on each side of the cluster. Fail ing this, candy must be supplied, and be placed over the food hole directly over the cluster, hut if it can be' avoided it is better to give nothing yet. Where bees have gone into winter quarters with plenty of sealed stores they represent a mine of wealth. No thing Is sq good as a solid comb of .sealed food in starting a stock breeding in spring. The food is removed from the cells as required by the bees, and this stimulates the colony to greater activity, and. the q...

A MATTER OF CHANCE. .Tt is related by a great -Nonconfor mist divine that at a meeting which he once attended, a member in poor circumstances led in prayer, which consisted chietlv of telling the Lord his troubles, for it appeared his life had been a most troublesome one.

QUEER THINGS ABOUT UMBRELLAS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 11 September 1908
QUEER THINCS ABOUT UM BRELLAS. The umbrella is undoubtedly of high antiquity, appearing in various forms on the sculptured monuments of Egypt, Assyria, Greece, and Rome, and in'hot countries it has been used since the dawn of history as a sunshade. In the East the umbrella has even been a symbol of power and royalty, and in many countries it has become part of religious as well as royal sym bolism. The Chinese dale the first umbrella back to four or five thousand years 'before the Mosaic date of crea tion. Among the Greeks and Romans the umbrella was used by.women, while its use by men was considered effem-n ate. Less than one hundred years'ago a large niimbrelVa was kept hanging in the halls of gKiod houses in England tn keep visitors dry as they passed to and from their carriages. AH hotels a^d restaurants a!»so tiiey were occasionally used in the same way, for the benefit of invalids or aged people. But no body ever thought of carrying an .um brella in the street. It is said that...

A MECHANICAL TRIUMPH. HOW TIME WAS SAVED. DEFECTIVE WINDING DRUM. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 11 September 1908
A MECHANICAL TRIUMPH; HOW TIME WAS SAVED. DEFECTIVE WINDING DRUJK.^ At the works of Messrs Tarry and C&.. on the Rand, an interesting piece ofi mechanical construction has just been carried out (says the '.'Standard of Em pire.") It was the building* of an im mensely largo winding drum, to replaco a defective drum, of American make* which, in the course of Its ordinary, work, had developed cracks throughout its ribs and shell. Tho defective drum was of the double cono-cyliridrieal type, with a singlo brake tread at tlie centre. Its failure was not due to inferior materials, ae is so often the case with American plant, but to faulty design. For some reason the makers in the United States had al lowed the shell to rely for Its support on transverse or axial ribs, which were, naturally enough, unable to withstand the alternating stresses put upon them by tho continual reversal of the drum la hoisting and lowering. The new drum turned out at the Banc! works was built up of four ...

"Only twice a day," said Mr. Gran don, with a bow. "I. don't go home at noon." ''Too bad!" said the admirer. "We could not get on without her at the club, I'm Siivre.
