AYRSHIRES A VALUABLE BREED OF CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 July 1902

AYRSHIRES A VALUABLE BEEED OF CATTLE. Theze is no material difference between the type of Ayrshire cattle from Scotland^ Canada, and England. The so-balled dif ference' of o'piniun regarding type is largely a difference of interpret ation o( 'the. Bame standard. It iB ufiually an attempt tG make the standard conform to individual ideas of pjiimals, instead of adopting the highest interpretation of tho standard, and breeding or' judging to same. ^ It must be recognised that 'an »v .. 1,0 4 ajicuun me wuriu uvui, -and the standard used to bring her tp this state, of perfection, is the only standard that has any right to be recog nised in judging tbia breed. The Ayrshire breed is a production of the best and most successful class of breeders known in the world. That is, Scotchmen with a definite ' object in view, have produced what iB not 'only one of the very best dairy cows, but' atao an animal of the moBt beautiful and symmetrical proportions, without in any' way impairing her usefu...

?PLAY BALL.' I 'Play ball !' The old cry echoes o'er the I peaceful vale of Ch6rry creek, and from the bleachers conies a roar as rows of rooters, spring a leak! The batter grasps, the billow club, the. pitcher strikes an attitude, the catcher gives his hands a rub, the umpire stands with keen eyes glued upon the play ; the ball lias gone, and onoe again the season's on !

LOUD-TALKING TELEPHONE [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 July 1902

LOUD-TALKING TELEPHONE The loud-talking telephone, or haut parlour, haB been recently invented in France. It means briefly that a man can ?it UIb osbd iii uib armunair ana talk to another man at a distance as though he were right there in t|ia armchair opposite. This other man, far away at the 'other end may be at his ease, too, or he may be footing it up and down in his office pull ing at a cigar, or, for that rastter, he may be in his . bed in ( the next room, says Everybody's . Magazine. But in any case these two men are talking to each other with as little effort as though their feet were, perched on the same table. The words of the one are caught up by the transmitter on the wall or desk, hurried along the wire through the streets, and pushed. into the room of the other with practically all of their original fore© Neither party to the conversation need disturb , himself to go to the telephone, .and when communication is open between two points, it is not even necessary to ring ...

FRENCH TAKE TO TEA DRINKING. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 July 1902

FRENCH TAKE TO TEA DRINKING. A striking innovation in Paris ia tho number of tea rooms that have sprung up, Moat of the tea now drunk in Paris comes from the BritiBh Crown Colony, and should, therafere, be a subject of grati fication to Eaglish people. While the 5 o'clock tea in the home circle is not now, thia foregathering in restaurants for the consumDtion of tea and toast is quite a recent development. A fashionable ren dezvous is a large hotel in the Champs JUysees. where the . Parisian comes of an afternoon with his women folk to drink tea and listen to the strains of an excel lent band. Most of the great hotels have an institution of the kind, and certain of the most popular tea houses have a pass able orchestra. Music, possibly, is re garded as a sort of compensation for poor toast and muffins ; that ia one of tho secretB that the French have not yet learned.

THE POPPY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 July 1902

THE POPPY. Far out at sea, gleaming sheets of dazzling gold arrested the gaze of the early explorers of California'. Blazing along the Pacific coast, embroidering the green foot-hills of the snow-capped Sierra Madres, transforming acre* and acres of treeless plains into royal cloth of gold, mill inns of flowers of ailky texture and color of gold fascinated the Spanish dis coverers. An eminent botanist, Each sholtz, at once classined the plant, and hu followers conferred his name upon this, tbe only native. American, papavor. Dream-like in beautyi fascinating from sheer loveliness, spreading its soft un dulations over the land, the California poppy bloomed above the richest views and arteries of gold the world, has ever known, all nn&uapected.

A PHILIPPINE TIT-BIT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 July 1902

A PHILIPPINE TIT-BIT. The einarapon, a minute fish in Philip pine waterB, is like any other fish in Bbape and proportion, so far as the untrained eye can see. On account of its pheno menal minuteness it is almost trans parent. It has a black chin, a black line down its centre, behind the anal fin and a few black spots on ite back. Many of the specimens dissected under the microscope contained rips eggB, comparable with the merest needle point and measuring 1-200 of an men in diameter. The umales are slightly larger than the males. The former average a fraction mere than half an inch in length;- the reales just half an inch. The smallest mature speci mens are but two-fifths of an inch from tip of nose to point of tail. An odd fact in regard to those in finitesimal creatures is that they are prized for human food. Lake Buhi is a volcanic basin m the shadow of Mt. Iriga, Here the side of a mountain seems to have been quite recently blown out by volcanic action. Many varieties of fishes...

POETRY KEEP OUT OF THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 July 1902

POETRY KEEP OUT OF THE ?ASr. Keep out of the Past, for ita highways Are dark with malarial gloom ; Its' gardens are sere and ita forests are drear, And everywhere moulders a tomb. Who seeks to regain ita loBt pleasures Finds only a rose turned to dust, And ifa nt.nrfihnnHp of wnndcrfnl treasures la covered and coated with rust. Keep out of the Past. Ic is haunted ; He who in its avenues gropes Shall find there the jihost of a joy prized the moBt And a skeleton throng of dead hopes. In place of its beautiful rivers Are pools that are stagnant with slime ; And gravcB gleaming bright in a phos phoric light Hide dreaniB that were alaia in their prime. Keep out of the Past. It is lonely, And barren and bleak to the view; Its fires have grown cold, and its stories are eld Turn, turn to the Present— the New. To-day leads you up to the hilltops That are kissed by the radiant sun, To-day shows no tomb, life's hopes are in bloom, And to-day holds a prize to be won.

OUR PRIMITIVE INSTINCTS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902

OUR PRIMITIVE INSTINCTS. A philosopher thus explains the general preference which most diners out have fpr a table by the restaurant wall. ' Primi tive man,' he eayB, 'ate in peril. The cave bea^r, the sabre toolh tiger, even some warrior of ' his own kind, was apt at 'any moment to leap upon him; and to devour his food/ and, perhaps, himself. Therefore he took hie meal with his back against a cliff, or in the corner of two -ad joining clifis. if possible, and, with the open country before him, That, you see, j was the safest way for himto eat. He icouia not be surprised. And we still .'have in ub 'that memory of the primi tive man, hrij we still have nnronsciously, when we sit down to our repasts, choose places that give us a wall for our pro tection. That, and not a desire to see things, is what causes ua to pick out wallB and cornem. You can see as well from the middle of a room, or from any other i place, you know.'

HOW WINE JUDGES KEEP SOBER. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 1 August 1902

HOW WINE JUDGES KEEP SOBER. If you have ever gone into a wine mer chant's office and sampled different vin tages you will have observed that the dealer never Bwallows the wine he pots into his mouth, but holdB it there for a time while he lightly breathes through his nose. His palate tells him whether the wine is rough or smooth; but his . seBBB ot smeii detects its aroma, and is largely depended on to determine its quality. Of course, it is the brain to which the smell is communicated that is really in strumental in fixing values, and as tho effect on the brain is only momentary, a great deal of wine may be sampled in this way without ill effects. But when the wine is permitted ti pass into the ftomach, the fumes whic1! ariso from it continue to assail the brain as long as the liquor remains thore in its original state, and if taken in large quan tities results in dulling the brain.
