FARM AND FIELD. Electricity in Agriculture. [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 7 July 1906

FARM AND FIELD. Electricity in Agriculture. Recent experiments have demonstra ted that electricity will promote the ger mination of seed. At the Massachusetts Agricultural College, U.S.A., in a collec tion of seed treated for 24 hours, 30 per cent, more generated under the current than in lots untreated and the seed } which received the electrical stimulus gave a higher per cent. of germination j than others. In many cases eloctriclty ( seems to act a good deal like light does in its stimulating effect. It must be un derstood, however, that even if we V mit this we do not know the best methods of using electricity upon plants in the soil, nor what strength of current will probably secure the greatest growth, j The range and strength of tbe current which accelerates germination are found to be exceedingly limited. So far as those experiments go to form a basis of judgment, it would appear that the strength of the current which shows the greatest growth of plants is equal to about thr...

GOOD THINGS TO EAT.— Now this is to many people a pro saic subject, but it would lie a very difficult tiling indeed to find anyone whom# it does not interest." As hungry as a hunter " is a ver> old simile, but not oven the heartiest appetite objects to dainty cookery. Evory housewife knows that Lite oven plays an important part in the economy of the kitchen, and unless hor pies, cakes, and scones issue therefrom light and tasty her labour is practically thrown away, and discontent rules in the home. Now, there is no occasion for any unpleasantness like this, as Dk.

Tho trouble is that the hulk of the country residents aro too apathetic to mako any move in tho direction of organised progressive work. Or is it thai thoy think there i* no u.-:o in trying to improve their surroundings? They would be Agreeably surprised to find after a few months' work how their effort* toward improvement would begin to tell. Matters would he continually cropping up that would well re...

A TALE OF THE PAST. HOW NAPIER CONQUERED SCINDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 7 July 1906

A TALE OF THE PAST. LiOW NAPIER CONQUERED SCINDE. The total number of troops under the command of Sir Charles Napier when he entered Scindo did not ex ceed 8000 (of whom not a quarter were British), while the Amira of Scindc had 70,000 men at their call, and knew that Afghans ami lialuchia,. Sikhs and Multnis, would nil join in if the British force received a single check. With such odds against him, any man of ordinary practical common- , senso would have crept back into India as cautiously and unobtrusively as he could well manage, and would, above all things, have avoided a con flict. But Sir Charles Napier was not a merely practical man. He had morn than common-sense; he had genius. When ho founil the Amirs of Scindo" were gathering forces against him, he did not awadt attack; he marched straight at them. His first move the l)uko of Wellington described in the House of Lords as one of the ! MOST CUKIOUS MILITARY FEATS he had ever known performed. It was an eight days' march into...

LUNACY AS A PROFESSION. MAN'S STRANGE DESIRE. Auuan has -just ueon-discharged from the Isle of Wight Asylum under extra ordinary circumstances, having twice feigned madness with such success that lie was committed to that institution as a dangerous lunatic. Ten years ago he started on his career as a processional "lunatic," and he was the first inmate of the Isle of Wight Asylum. At that time he was soon dis charged, as the asylum authorities were satisfied that he was shamming.

EMBRYONIC LEECHES. A WATER DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 7 July 1906

EMBRYONIC - LEECHES. X WATER DANGER. . -■'Warnings.have been raised by a scien tific writer, M. de Parvllle, as. to-.: the clanger-of drinking brackish;! and . un : filtered" water which may contain young -or-embryonic leeches. The danger is greater durlng^the - warm months, - es pecially in Paris, where the water is very bad. Leeches,, as M. ..de .Parvllle reminds readers, are regularly swallowed by " horses, , oxen, sheep, and other :animals, -but these disgorge them after a time. The leech, on the other hand, has a fancy for sticking in-men's throats and digestive organs. " On this subject Doctor Mantel, of St. Omer, in the North of France, has pub lished a pamphlet. He says that a few years ago he received a visit from a friend of his, who lived for a time in Tunis. This person went out to Tunis a strong, energetic man, and a few months afterwards he came back weak, worn, and thin, the shadow of his former self. The Tunis doctors had seen the man, as he had suddenly fallen ill i...

"PLAYING THE DEVIL" PIKATES OF THE EDDYSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 7 July 1906

"PLAYING THE DEVIL" PIKATES OF THE EDDYSTONE. The Eddyatone lishing grounds (says tbe Loudon "Daily Express"), which ex tend from the famous lighthouse to ibreast of the frowning Lizard, have become the hunting ground of French steam trawlers. During the past week thirty of these vessels were counted within lien of the Cornish const. The Polperro "drifter" or the Brixham trawler will tell you the nationality and type of any fishing craft, even when she Is dwarfed to toy like proportions upon the horizon. As these fish-warming grounds are, well outside the three mile limit, the, Frenchmen have as much right to shoot1 their nets there as our own boats. So says international law. But the tales of wrong that have been told in the raucous tones of long-1 shore grievance upon the Plymouth Barbican and the Brixham lisli quay during the last few days give quite an-1 other aspect to this question of French . rights. | The losses to these poor sea-toilers ( since the beginning of the present ...
