Skating on Salt. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 21 August 1914
Skating on Salt. Nature has been conquered once more. Men can skate, not on ico, but on salt. A salt skating rink, constructed by the patented process of Dr. TiJdward Arnold, was re cently exhibited and operated in Berlin. All skaters will welcome the in vention of a method of producing, by purely chemical means and with out the employment of a costly refrigerating process, a saline cry stalline mass which exhibits all the characteristic properties of ice. The surface of the mass can.scarcely be distinguished from a. surface of na tural or artificial ice, and the re semblance is increased by the fact that the shavings produced by the skates have all'the appcararice of snow. The mass is entirely odour less and contains no ingredient in jurious to the health or the cloth ing of the skaters. It can be uti lised for skating, with ordinary ice skates, in every season and cli mate, except when the temperaturo is higher than 86dcg. Fahr. The mass can bo applied to any tight floor of wood, ...

THE GLORIOUS GUMS OF ! AUSTRALIA. ?r There are people who see no beauty in the gum tree,' by which term I they generally know all varieties of tho eucalyptus; but to thosp who trouble to look twice there is I nn attraction about its shapely trunk anil limbs, and feathery fol-1 mge which entitles it to considera tion on this account, as well as, for i£s many practical uses. Tho artistic possibilities of tho eucalyp . tus afo well exemplified in Mr. W. Lister Lister's famous picture in the Sydney Art Gallery. "The Golden Splendour of the Bush/' The two most widely distributed, and' consequently best-knowfr, genu ses of trees in, Australia are the acacias, or '.'wattles," and the euca lypti, or "gum trees."

WANDERING CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 21 August 1914
I : WANDERING CHURCH. During the floods in Ohio and tbe neighbouring States of the Middle West a wooden church, which had been washed from its foundations, was deposited on an island in- tha Ohio River. There was nothing to show where the church had come from or the de nomination of the people who had worshipped in it. It had a belfry with a bell weighing about half a ton, and during its curious unpiloted voyage the structure bad suSered lit tle damage. The Inhabitants of the township in which it landed had had their own church destroyed by the waters. They gladly accepted the gift of the river, hastened to dig a foundation on a desirable site, and moved' the church to it. If the original congre gation learns of its whereabouts and attempts to claim the church some curious legal entanglements may arise. In the meantime, the church is do ing proper duty In housing a congre .. Ration every Sunday, although per haps, the congregation might be con sidered somewhat heretical by the forme...
VALUE OF THE SCALE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 21 August 1914
VALUE OF THE SCALE. Farmers are extremely lax in keep ing any kind of accounts. -It might he thought that self-interest would dictate that they should know fex actly the profits they make each year. Yet to ascertain this it . is es sential that there he a taking oi stock once a year ; and we will guarantee that there is hardly onf farmer out of any -hundred who does this. Dairy farmers are equally lax, in not knowing what their cows, do in the way of milk or butter produc tion, in not knowing the cost of fedd, or how much each cow con sumes per day. It seems a very difficult matter to g.et dairymen to appreciate the fact that dairying is a manufacturing business ; and that to make money at it, it iB first necessary to know exactly what each item costs, thus practicing economies where needed. Until the cost of production is known, it is impossible to curtail or lop off the unprofitable items. It is very evident that one of the first things that . must be done is to weigh the milk of ...
THE FARM AND DAIRY. GRAZING LUCERNE. THE DANGER OF BLOAT. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 21 August 1914
THE FARM AND DAIRY. .* GRAZING LUCERNE. THE DANGER OF BLOAT. In view of the increased use ot I this splendid fodder plant, the opin ion or Mr. Alexander, the manager I of a large estate near Invercll, in I New South Wales (where 15 silos are i in use), on the danger ol cattle graz ing on lucerne, is worth noting. He holds that tht feeding off of lu cerne by stock is always attended with a certain -amount of risk of lose by tympanitis or bloat. In fact, dur ing certain period? of tht plant's growth Its action on the cow Is so active and virulent af» to resemble prussic acid poisoning of cattle fed' on immature sorghum. A remarkable thing about it is the fact that this extreme effect is pro*, duced for perhaps only two or three days in the plant's growth, which explains- why cattle gsazing in one ' paddock may suffer badly from blont while those in the next may be im ' mUne, although the lifterne appears to be in exactly the same stage of growth in both.

It would bo useless to ask him to ac knowledge his marriage with Meg's mother, but he could compel him to give him half tho diamonds and the dowry that Pat was to have had. Tho world need never know tho truth and for his silence Josh Hothorington* would give half of -what ho was worth. They could say Pat bad changed her mind at the. eleventh hour.

COST OF BAD TEMPER. "By getting into a rage the work of the heart may be increased from 152 to' 224 foot-pounds per minute. Keep your temper is, therefore, good .advice."

Scarcely twenty minutes elapsed be fore the groom came to tell Mr. Hetherington that the inspector and a constable wore exaraing the body, and he* then left the house and pro: ceeded at a rapid pace to join them. "This is a sad affair, inspector," he said. "Yes, sir, . I'm afraid there's been foul play. I'll have the body remov ed to the house. All, here comcs the doctor. I sent my man to the vicar age for him," he replied, as the doc tor, who was to have had charge of Fitzpatrick's practice during his ab sence, came towards them. "Then I must hasten home. I do not wish Mrs. Hetherington or my daughter to hear of this from any one else ;" andy Mr. Hetlierington went towards the gate, pausing on the way to speak to Dr. Blake, who feeemed very much upset. i "It's an awful affair," he said.

What M's.P. Earn. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 21 August 1914
What M's.P. Earn. Italy and Spain arc iho only European countries which offer no monetary reward to their' members of Parliament. The Portuguese legislators are hot remunerated by the State, but they have a free pass for travelling on »11 railways in the country, and their consti tuencies arc permitted to pay a sum equivalent to 15s. for each day's sitting. Denmark is another country which believes that its political gentle men are ready to work for al most nothing. Members of Parlia ment there only. receive 6s. per day, but they have the peculiar pri vilege of a free seat in the Royal Theatre of Copenhagen. The Norweigan honourable mem ber is thankful for a daily in come of 12s., though he must do his duty properly to get it. He loses a day's pay when he takes n day off. .Members of the Swiss Diet, work under the same threat. If they aro absent they loso salary which amounts in their caso to 16s. per day.

It had been a dull, heavy day, and towards evening ' the clouds had gathered black and threatening, and now at a quarter to ten it was more like midnight. ' "A pretty bridal eve,"' the girl muttered. Then rising, she wrapped herself in a long dark cloak, and | putting on a snug toque she went towards a drawer, out of which sho took a dag-ger of foreign workman ship, and hiding it under her cloak, she unlocked her door, and stepping on to the landing, she listened.

READY-WITTED ACTORS. Anyone who h*o hnd to do with Mm stn/;o* knows that it if» " very rdillicult thitter to disconcert mi old ?r.tor.
