ALWAYS FRESH WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
- ALWAYS FRESH WATER. A horse and cattle trough has been invented which automatically provides a drink of fresh water any time of the day or night. The de vice is so arranged that, when the animal begins to drink from the re ceptacle, a fresh supply of water is automatically turned in and is shut off when the animal has finished drinking. The trough can be of anv size, and can be made to water any number of cattle or horses. The trough i's semi-circular in shape, and is placed on a pivot at a point a couple ..of .inches from the. centre. When the trough is empty the top by thefweight of the smaller side of the trough, and the force of a spring plunger, which regulates the water supply. As the tank is filled with water the equilibrium is shifted to the longer side, and as it becomes filled the water supply is entirely cut off by the weight of the tank, forcing 5 the plunger inward in the supply pipe. As the animal be gins to drink the weight is lessened; and the water starts to now a...
THE FIGURE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
THE FTGURE GAME. Willy was sitting in window seat, his brow puckered up over a slateful of figures. 'Oh, dear,' he sighed, 'I wish I could make them look better!' Certainly there was sauce for woe, for Willy's finders were clumsy. The fives looked as if their heads were coming off ; the threes bulged out too much behind, and the nines were very queer indeed. Poor Willy had got so far along in his multiplica tion table that when his teacher told him to practice making his figures, his first thought was to rebel. 'I don't want to practice,' he had said. But the teacher turned away with a quiet, 'Very well, then,' which had made him, as soon as he came home, sit right down and try as hard as he could to straighten out tfie crooked numbers. 'Hello, old man!' called out his father, cheerfully, coming into the room. 'What's- the matter to day? You don't look quite as happy as you ought to. School wrong? 'No, sir,' said Willy. 'It's not the school, it's I. I've been prac tising and practis...
JACK'S FEAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
JACK'S FEAST. Now, Jack was the. groceryman's delivery horse. He was a big, fat, slick, black fellow, and very proud was he of his nice shiny coat. Like a great many people he had the fault of too much curiosity. He al ways wanted to examine everything he could reach with his velvety nose. This day it happened that Jack on his daily round stopped a short distance behind another grocery waggon. In fact, there were quite a number of horses standing near. And Jack, tossing his head, proud ly arched his neck as much as to say, 'Just see me! I'm the pret tiest horse here.' But in front stood this tempting grocer's cart with its many queer sacks and mysterious parcels, such as Jack had often seen put into his own waggon. Now here's a good chance, he thought, while the driv er's away,, to see what these pack ages contain. Up walked proud Jack and sniffed and pushed things about with his nose. Here was a white sack, 'Hum! Smells good. I'll tear the paper to see what's inside,' reasoned Jack...
A DIFFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
A DIFFERENCE. A woman was reading about lions to her little boy. A little later the boy ran from a mouse, which amus ed his mother. 'I thought you were not afraid of lions,' she said. 'There is a good deal of difference between a lion in a book,' the boy said, 'and a real mouse.' 'Mother,' said little Ethel one morning after having fallen out of bed, 'I think I know why I fell out of bed last, night. It was because I slept too near the place where I got in.' Then, after a moment's thought, she said: 'No, that is not the reason. It was because I slept too near where I fell out.'
THE GAME OF NOBBIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
THE GAM.E OF NOBBIE. The game of nobbie requires two teams of five each ; Goalkeeper, back, right-wing, left-wing, and forward (or centre). A goal, made of two posts 5ft high, set 6ft apart and connected by a bar at the tops, is stationed at each end' of an ob long field, say, fifty by thirty yards, or stnaller even. The players are armed with nob bie sticks, which are like oak broom-handles' a yard long. The playing end is nearly pointed, and in it is driven a nail, the head be ing filed off, leaving only half of the nail' protruding. The nobbies are made of two pieces of iin. rubber hose-piping 1 Jin/ long, ? tied to the ends of a string that measures 6in 1 between the rings. _ I The game consists in keeping the nobbies off the ground and- carry- ing or throwing them through the goal. Each half is thirty piinutes, and the total goals make the score. The teams line up with the goal keeper at goal, the forward about 20ft in front, the back about half way between, and the wings about...
THE LANGUAGES OF BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
THE LANGUAGES OF BRITAIN. Has anybody ever reckoned how many languages arej ^poken in the British Isles? .Few' people would put the numbed as high as seven. But take a census thus: English, Welsfi in Wales, Erse in ,' Ireland, Manx in the Isle of Man (church services in Manx were discontinued there but recently), Gaelic in Scot land, French in the Channel Is lands, while Cornish was spoken in Cornwall, far more recently than either historians or the public know. The total is seven languages for the British Isles— arid yet we are the poorest linguists in the world. |
KNOWN ONLY TO FOUR PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
' KNOWN ONLY TO FOUR ? PEOPLE. The process of manufacturing the paper of which banknotes are made is one of the greatest of all trade secrets. It is known only to the Governor of the Bank of Eng land and to three other persons in timately connected with the, indust ry, which is carried on at Overton, a quiet little village in Hants. All that the outside world is allowed to know concerning this precious pap er is that it is made, amongst other ingredients, out of charred husks and Rhenish vines.
ROYAL STATUES IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
ROYAL STATUES IN LONDON. The'public statue of the late King to be erected in London, is the first commemoration of; this, kind to a Royal Edward. There is a statue of Edward VI. in one of the courts of ,St.i Thomas' Hospital* .but this can hardlv be ^counted as a pub ic memorial. Two of our late nlonr arch's namesakes — Edward I. and Ed^vard III.— well deserve a monuf mcot;.but, in common ? with Jfncistipf our earlier Kings, they have escap1 ed suitable recognition. , Boadicea and Richard I. are the sole monarchy of pre-Stuart days whose statues are worthy of them. Only two other predecessors of Charles I. — or three if Edward VI. be included^ — are nepr resented among the London states. Henry VIII. stands over the main entrance; to St. Bartholomew's Hos pital, and Elizabeth over the side entrance' to St. Dunstarr'sinthe :West, both statues being unknown to the vast majority of Londoners;

: ? ? - ; . ' I Science Notes & News. ? ? ? ? — . INK PLANT. .. The .ink of everyday- life may per haps be described as of mixed ani-. mal, veget-ible, and mineral origin.; Sometimes, however, the juice of a plant can be used direct'y for writing. This is the case with the ink plant, wliich occurs in South America. The jujee of the plant is red, but it becomes rapidly black on exposure by oxidisation. It gives a perman ent stain on paper, and can be used as ink without further preparation. A note in 'Knowledge' recalls the fact that all the early documents in Spanish South America were w rit ten with the juice of the ink plant.

Random Readings. INKS AND FORGERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
Random Readings. m INKS AND FORGERY. In 'Knowledge' Mr. Aintworth Mitchell, who recently gave evidence in a case dealing with a forged will, has a gtriking article on inks. Inci dentally he lets his readers into the secret as to the tests- which he ap plies m order to discover the age of any particular piece of writing. If it is shown that the ink on a docu ment purporting to be drawn up, say, ten years ago, is really quite fresh, then there is every chance that tlie writing has been forged. An exam ination of the colour of the ink may be helpful. Blue-black ink may be recognised as fresh up to the sixth day, and in after years its age may be told when the blue provisional pigment has faded and left only the black'. The blue colouring as time goes on is hardly acted upon by re agents, but for a year or two it is. In fact, writing done within that time will at once diffuse if treated with a 50 per cent solution of acetic acid, whereas when it is five or six years old, diffusion, if i...
THE SIXTH SENSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
THE SIXTH SfiNSE. In an article, 'Can Telepathy Explain All?' in the 'Contempor- ary Review,' Mr. W. T. Stead says : .We are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses whose forms some mortals can see, and whose voices are audible to many amongst us. Even if these Invisible Entit ies be demons from the nether pit, or if 'they be mere Thought Forms thrown off from the unconscious minds of the living with intenf to deceive their fellows, the reality of their existence and the nature of their attributes deserve the study of those whom they are attempting to deceive. If on the. other hand it be true, as all the religions have ever taught, that we are compassed about by a great multitude which no man can number of Angels, Min istering Spirits, and the spirits of our Beloved dead, amongst whom there may also lurk malign Intelli gences', Deceiving Spirits, Minis ters of Evil, the subject is . one that calls still more imperiously upon the careful study of all serious men. For the door » is n...
A QUEEN'S EXPLORING EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
A QUEEN'S EXPLORING EX PEDITION. A book, entitled 'New Light on Ancient Egypt,' contains an inter esting account of an expedition dis patched for the purpose of discover ing perfumes: — 'In those far-away days,' the author remarks, 'much perfume was used, not only for the toilet, but for the incense required in the religious services. This the TJie bian priests could procure only through traders, and the essences lost in fragrance by their slow tran sit in Africa; also they were liabre to be adulterated. In the light of these facts, Queen Hatshopsouitou determined to send an exploring ex pedition into the 'Lands of In cense.' 'This was almost as much of an undertaking as Columbus' voyage. The 'Ports of Incense' were known only by hearsay, and the perils of the sea were not the less terrifying because they were visionary. But 1 tne queen ntieu out nve souna snips, equipped them in the most approved fashion, loaded them with goods likely to find favour with savages, and launched them ...
THE PERFECT BODY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
THE PERFECT BODY. A human being should be eight times as tall as his or her head, measuring from the top of forehead to the extreme pint of chin. The head itself, when viewed in profile, should come within an exact square, and its length from the crown of the head to the chin should be the same as the width, taken from the tip of the nose to the back of the head. With the arms fully extended, the correct height is represented by the measurement from finger-tip to fin ger-tip.
CONCERNING LIQUEURS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
CONCERNING LIQUEURS. Cognac, which gives its name to several kinds of grape eau-de-vie, is a small town in the department of the Charentp, and Cognac brandy, like Tokay, .only gains honour with age. It is distilled from wine, but as the youngest wine makes the best brandy, distillation takes place shortly after the vintage takes place. It requires fifty years for a really good Cognac to arrive at its proper state for drinking, says a writer in the 'Pall Mall Gazette,' but such liqueur when seventy or a hundred years old is -at its very best. The cherry harvest in Da'matia is one of the most picturesque prelim inaries to the making of Maras chino. Pulped wild cherries go to the making of this delicious liqu eur, whilst honey is added as a sweetening medium ; Kirschwasser is made from tfie wild black gean of the Black Forest, and holds a taste which suggests the romantic region of its birth. Anaconda brandy is made chiefly from oranges, its name being derived from the yacht on'-which ...
CECIL RHODES'S AFRICAN DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
CECIL RHODES'S AFRICAN DREAM. Sir Lewis Michell, in his life of the Right Hon. Cecil J. Rhodes* just published, tells one or two good stories of Rhodes's pluck and ambi tions. In the very first year of his entry into the political life of the Colnnv. shortlv after Maiuba. when the ambitions of the young diamond digger, must have been smarting un der the reverses of that disastrous campaign, he said to a friend, plac ing his hand on the map of Africa : 'That is my dream — all English.' And a few years later, when Queen Victoria asked him, 'And what are you doing in Africa, Mr. Rhodes?' he made the characteristic reply, 'Extending Your Majesty!s domin ions, madam.' HTirr rAUI? \*7/'YDTli TU1? L fl UAiViU v/i\i ii a CANDLE.' * To a friend who questioned him as to how he had enjoyed the life 'of which he had made such a big thing,1' Rhodes replied : 'Yes, I en joyed it. Oh, yes ; it has been worth the candle.' Then, with a grim smile, he added : 'When I thought Kruger was going^to hang ...
TREATMENT OF FOWLS WITH COLDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
TREATMENT OF FOWLS WITH COLDS. By knowing how to treat fowls with simple colds the poultry keep er will prevent such colds from de veloping into any dangerous form of roup. When fowls contract colds the severity of the cold de pends upon the health of the birds previous to becoming attacked. A sudden change of temperature such as is likely to occur during the win ter season will have an injurious ef fect upon the systems of the fowls, and cause depression, or irritate and more or less cause inflammation of the delicate lining membranes of the respiratory organs. The severity of most diseases depends upon the state of the subject when attacked, and therefore fowls that are allow ed toget out of sorts through being fed on unsuitable foods or roosting in houses that are not sanitary are more liable to contract colds of a dangerous kind than are those birds that are rationally fed, and shel tered under Hygienic conditions. If the kidneys of a fowl are not heal thy, and that fowl contrac...
The Poultry Run. THE SILVER-GREY DORKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
The Poultry Ron. ? » THE SILVER GREY DORK ING. Many breeders have long since realised that first-class birds of the Dorking family can be bred from one pen without the necessary dou ble-mating which some varieties re quire. Nothing is more pleasing to the eve than to see a flock of silver grey or dark Dorkings strutting about on a green run or field. They ~ are unquestionably the foremost table fowl; their pure white and juicy flesh cannot be surpassed. Many poultry-keepers who have not given this breed a trial are of the opinion that they are bad layers, but experience does not bear out this idea. If given fair treatment, one will find that the silver-grey Dork ing is a fairly good winter layer of good-sized, white, saleable eggs. Of course, there are good and bad layers in every variety of poultry. If you are thinking of taking up an other variety, you give the Dorking a trial.
