LUMINOSITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 12 September 1914
LUMINOSITI3S. There are always times when we wish we could see something which the darkness hides. The angler gives up because he cannot see his float ; the cricketer because he cannot see the ball. Luminous paint solves all these, and scores of other difficulties. And all that is required is to add a small quantity of calcium sulphide to ordinary white paint. Foats, balls, keyholes, etc., then become visible. A watch light for use at night avoiding the striking of a match can be made by putting a small piece of phosphorus into a long glass phial, and then filling it one-third 1 full with hot oil. Cork it tightly, and, when light is needed, uncork for a moment- and close again. The top part of the phial will be luminous, and you can see the time.
BOROUGH RATES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 12 September 1914
BOROUGH RATES. It has from time to time been brought before the coincil that a good sum was due for borough rates of Qneenscliff, and at Tues day's meeting it was resolved that definite steps be taken to have all iarrears paid. The matter was brought before councillors by the Mayor when pointin!g out the posi tion of the borough funds. The rates owing, he stated, amounted to over £400, and it was not busi ness to allow this to continue, espe cially as money was urgently re quired. Cr Patching-Other municipali ties did not stand on ceremony in such cases. Cr Golightly understood that final notice' had been given some time ago. The Mayor-Yes; but only about 1l0 had been forthcoming. Crs Thomson and Arkins stated that every ratepayer should be made to. pay, which was agreed with, and it was understood that legal steps be taken to compel coin pliance with the law. Those iii airrears may accept this intimation as final. It is best to pay ,the sftanding rates to save trouble.
ARE YOU LEFT-HANDED? [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 12 September 1914
ARE YOU LEFT-HANDED ? Why, don't you make more use of your left hand ? It has -been estimated that 97 per cent. of the English-speaking people are right-handed when they grow up. Seventeen out of every hundred are born right-handed, but the remaining eighty-three are born without any in clination to use one hand more than the other, and, therefore, become right-handed owing to influences brought to bear on them during their childhood days. It is impossible to calculate how much men Jose by neglecting, their left hands. Formerly - in primitive times, that is to say--everyone was ambidextrous ; and the sooner people become ambidextrous again the bet ter. In Japan, for many years past, soldiers and schoolboy s have been taught to use both hands. And this wise example is now being followed in Germany.

CLEARING STUMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 12 September 1914
CLEARING STUMPS. As the years go by, and land be comes more and more valuable in this country, greater attention will have to be paid to making every part of a holding capable of yielding the maximum return, and in the case of old bush land this can only be done by clearing off the stumps and fitting the land, where it is level enough, for the use of the plough. Blowing out stumps with ex plosives is, of course, no new thing, but the actual experience of a South Australian farmer may be a guide as to the methods and approximate cost to those, who have had no pre vious experience in the work. "I had," writes a correspondent of the Adelaide "Observer," "some 230 stumps and dead trees removed from the land. Many of them were up to 6ft. in diameter. The work was performed by Mr. E. Thomson of Parkside (better known as 'Dyna mite Thomson'), at a total cost of £27, which works out at 2/4 per stump. The time occupied was 34" hours. A considerable expense and needless delays were incurred i...
THE DAIRY. THE JERSEY COW. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 12 September 1914
THE DAIRY. THE JERSEY COW. (Extract from an Address by L. P. Bailey, Ohio.) The products of the Jersey cow milk, cream, butter and cheese- stand, in the markets of the world, for best quality. All these have won more premiums in the great com petitive shows than all other breeds combined. No name of any other breed is used to decorate the sides of milk wagons that go through our streets nor the signs on butter and cheese stands. The milk from the average herd of Jersey cows show 5 per cent. and better of butter-fat, making it the most economical the consumer can buy. They can take one pint of cream from one gallon 5 per cent. of milk and the remainder will be as rich as the whole milk of some other breeds. In this way they get the very best cream and milk in the same bottle at the price of milk. No milkman or dealer can work up or even hold customers in any city, where the people are acquainted with and can get Jersey milk, with any other except that of the Guernsey. Jersey milk pla...

(ALL RIGHTB REbERVED.) -THE - MESHES OF FATE. ----0---- OR, --- THE CURSE OF THE BLUE DIAMONDS. By Hedley Richards, Author of "The Mine Master's Heir," "Time, the Avenger," etc., etc. PART 8. S CHAPTER XIV.-(Continued.) :- Looking at her, Joshua Hethering ?!i:?:ton realised that his wife and his " daughter were two different types of women. His wife could be coerced, but Patricia has his firmness of will and resolution. "Then you shall hear;but remem ber what I have to say can be plea sant to neither you nor me, and I forbid you ever to reveal it to your mother." "Very well, father, I will do as you wish in that." :- Joshua Hethering'ton, got up and - --walked quickly across the room, then he came back and stood facing this guileless girl, who, if she had not thought him a very loving ikLher, had respected him. Perhaps she htad thought him hard with his work people, but he knew that she regard Sed him as one incapable of such wrong-doing as he was about to con fess. "Patricia," he s...
THIEVES IN BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914
THIEVES IN BUSINESS. The Diamond-merchants of Hatton Garden are among the wealthiest traders in London, and one would as soon expect to find pickpockets in the peerage as a gang of robbers of the worst type trading as diamond-mer chants in a dignified suite of rooms in Hatton Garden. Nevertheless, some time ago a gang of experienced criminals wefe in business in Hatton Garden as dia mond merchants on a considerable scale, and their reason for setting up In that particular line was that they had £70,000 worth of rough diamonds to dispose of, their entire collection having been stolen from a post-offcie .afe in South Africa. It isn't often that criminals are so bold as the men of this gang must have been, for Hatton Garden is per haps one of the best-policed locali. ties of all London, and considerable courage must have been necessary for them to have established them selves there, with no more lawful: reason than that they had £70,000 worth of stolen diamonds which they wished to s~l...
THE SPOONERISMS OF Dr. SPOONER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914
THE SPOONEmRISSS o Dr. SPOONER. There is probably no more famous man at Oxford than Dr.. Spooner, the Warden of New College, and his fame though peculiar, is likely to be last ing, for he has added to the gaiety" of our nation by inventing a new form of humour, the picturesque transportation of initial syllables. It is. said that he owed the inspiration to his first nurse; but it was not till he became an Oxford don, and blandly announced at divine service that the hymn would be "Kinquering congs their tatles tike" that his peculiar genius found full recognition, and "Spoonerisms" gave a new facet to humour. A little later he con vulsed the congregation at morning chapel by reading in the lesson of the day that, "it is easier for a camel to go through the knee of an idol," and astonished an audience of working men by asking them if they never felt "some vague yearning, some half-warmed fish, for a higher life." The undergraduates of "New" were not slow to respond to his invitation a...
THE EAR THE SEAT OF SEA SICKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914
THE EAR THE SEAT O6F SE:. SICKNESS. Dr., Juiius Auerbach, who 1iaEsei nine months at the University of Vi, enna, has repeated his. belief that sea sickness is not due to the stomach, but to the irritation 'of the semicircular canal of the inner ear. This is the theory that has been~ known for some time to specialists; and Dr. Auerbach believes that Proft Dalikinik, of the University of Vi enna, has proved it. The doctor says that the function of the semi circular canals is to ,maintain the equilibrium. When they areirrita.ted their owners have all the symptomi of sea sickness. The doctors of Vi' enna found by experimenting that a child (in whose ears the canals had been destroyed could not be made seasick, and that animals without the ear canals were unaffected by seg sickness. Dieting before a voyage would not prevent sea sickness, there fore. The doctor said nd remedy had been found. _______________________
SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. ITS TERRORS: ITS DELIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914
SOUTH AMERICAN. TRAVEL. ITS TERRORS: ITS DELIGHTS. Except for journeys round the fringe of South America, travelling there i's a desperate business. No where else surely in the world are fevers so malignant, forests and rivers so vast and uninhabited, and insects and snakes so murderous. More than one person has started up the Amazon, meaning to reach Peru and travel to Lima via one of the Amazon tributaries, and then by an unfinished railway which he strikes some few hundred miles out side Lima; but has been turned back at Para, at the very mouth of the river, by a murderous onslaught of mosquitoes, wasps, and bees of in credible size, and chigoes which per sisted in laying eggs in the skin of his toes. A French traveller, who started from Guayaquil, crossed the Andes of Ecuador to the Amazon, and then descended the river, could not make up his mind which scenery was gran der and which horrors were worse, those of the mountains or the river. The well-known ships of the Booth Line g...

Sentries on Duty. . -------"--* The travelling public of Queens cliff are brought into new ex perience by reason of sentries on duty between here and Pt. Lons dale. A small party from Queens cliff visited Pt. ILonsdale and were desirous of seeing the En gineers at the search lights. The cry of ' Halt !' greeted them, but failing to take notice of the order, *.:went on their journey, when the sound of a rifle brought about an immediate retreat. When return ing'home after the dance at the Point' members of the party were brought under the law once again, though in a different manner. Early morning arrived and as the vehicle conveying the returning party drew near the guards' camp there could be seen a strong Ibody of soldiers awaiting the visitors. A large gate was closed across the road, wire entanglement surrounded It, and the glimmer of a camp fire showed the bayonets of the! guard. ' Halt ! What is your business in these lines to-night' was the ques tion. The ' nervous' driver re ...
