NEPTUNE'S JAZZ DRUMMER The Mate Makes Music WET PROHIBITION [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
NEPTUNE'S JAZZ DRUMMER The Mate Makes Music WET PROHIBITION Chief Officer Carter, of the British India motorship Durenda, now dis charging at Port Adelaide, has taken up jazz drumming as a hobby, and with an elaborate outfit makes the wild waves wilder. Today, accompanied by the ship's gramophone, he was busily engaged in playing raggedy tunes from "Rockets" and other musical plays, causing the feet of even the dark-skinned lascars on deck to shuffle fantastic steps. Whistles, clogs, cowbells, and motor horns vied with each other to drown the banging of the big drum, and if Neptune did not climb aboard to see what the fuss was about when the stew mer crossed the line, he must have; been deaf. The Durenda is from Now York, and members of her crew state that the position there as regards prohibition was wet indeed. A Government official was the first to board the steamer on arrival in U.S.A. waters, and he sug2 ge?ted that he possessed a thirst that only Scotch whisky could abate. He ...

POULTRY FOR PROFIT (By "Leghorn.") The next two or three months are per-. haps the most anxious of the year for the poultryman. They are the months, on which the whole success or other wise of the farm depends.? Unless a man can hatch his chickens: successfully he must fail. The insuba ting portion of the plan4t is the most important on the farm. Without your young stock you cannot carry on in the following years, because you have not suitable stock from which to breed.

Weed Burning Device [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
Weed Burning Device The work of hundreds of laborers on the' tracks of an electric railway in California is, i, is saii, now being acconfplished by at -weert burning device that eliminates the1 hard work with mattacks and hoes. This, extensive t,-lley system, which ceutres inu Los Angeles, has hundreds td miles of track which must be kept free of weeds, and t.he device turned out to th.s end is attached t~o an electric locomotive and, to gether with an oil tank and water ear, i hauled over the lie at the rate. of about ten miles an hour. Green weeds and dry are destroyed alike by this device, and the cost is said to be but a fraction of the former expense, only about 3/4 for a mile strip some twenty feet wide. The invention is due to a railway man who had experimented for yers with weed burning apparatus, using crude oil as fuel. The crude oil is brought into contact withi live steam by this system, forming a gas emited under the car and ignited, burnin? the weeds to the roots and d...

ADVOCATES NEVER MANUFACTURE. [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
ADVOCATES NEVER MANUFAC TURE. "An advocate is no more responsible in a great many cases for the facts brought out in a trial on the evidence elicited than an engine driver is re sponsible for the fact that a passenger takes a ticket for Gawler rather than for Dry Creek. An advocate is but an advocate. His function is not to manufacture evidence. His function is to supply a mouth to his client, and, above all, not to present his own, but his client's case in the best and most favorable light. His own personal opinion is immaterial. in fact, no Bri tish Judge will allow him to give his own personal opinion. His chief duty, not infiequently, is to bring order out of chaos and treat facts in their pro per relation to each other. Perhaps Ihe nearest parallel is the profession of an architect. An archi tect does not make bricks. He advises which direction the home should face, which features should be emphasised and v hich moditied, which design will best stand the rigors of the season, a...
Scent that Clung [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
Scent that Clung Shopping list as long as your arm, an Adelaaide woman spent the afternoon loading herself with necessities for the larder and toilet. She came to the last item at a well-known draper's, and, while waiting for her purchases to be wrapped up, became aware of a malodorous- fflu Viurm. "What a dreadful smell!" she said to the assistant. "How can you work with it surrounding you?" The girl sniffed the air and remarked loftily, "I don't notice it. It's not on MY side of the counter!" Undaunted by the implication, the woman told a shop-walker that there must be a dead rat under the floor. The "For ward One" gentleman remarked that there certainly was an unusual aroma, and promised to have it investigated. With a sense of having done her duty the woman left the shop. The smell went with her. She got into a tramcar. So did the smell. She arrived at her home. The smell clung closer than a brother. "Most extraordinary!" she ejaculated. When she unpacked her basket she nearly s...

Then Somebody Guffawed The ubiquitous messenger boy started the crowd. In ones and twos they began to gather around the group of men laying a telephone cable in King William street. Eyes strained round all sorts of ob stacles, heads pushed themselves in with irresistible persistence. The curio sity of the crowd was aroused. Unable to b?a.r the strain longer, one of the spectators approached the foreman. "Are you laying a cable ?" "No," came the gruff reply; "just burying a worm." * 0 *

FOR SLEEPY EYES WHY THE TROLL LAUGHED Part II. [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
WHY THE TROLL LAUGHED Part 1._ In answer to Peter's knoke the door was opened by the wife of the Troll, who held high over her head a candle. "What do you want?" she enquired in a gruff voice. "I have come to tr my luck at mak ing the Troll laugh,' said Peter. "A fine time you will have," said the old woman. "Come in." ,The wife had but one head, but it was big and funny looking, and Peter as he looked at her wondered how the Troll could keep from laughing every time he saw his wife. "He has gone to bed,' said the wife, "and I warn you it will be wise if you wait until morning before you try to make him laugh." "You can sleep here in the hall on the floor, and as soon as my husband is awake in the mornng I will call you." Without waiting for a reply the old woman left Peter and the Fox in the dark and went into the kitchen, closin, .'the door behind her. "She won't need to call me," thought Peter. " I shall sleep with both eyes eyes wide open, and in the meantime I Bhall take a look...
CHEAP POWER To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
CHEAP POWER To the Editor. "Lig Nite."'-Several of your corres pondents have written under this head ing, and their ldeats seem to be to use the brown coal that appears to be abun dantly distributed throughout the State. If the Government is going to continue its investigations, why no, turn its attention to the Bower Field, which is only 85 miles from Adelaide, with the Morgat railway line running through the centre of it? I think it was in 1902 that the Engio neer-in-Chief's I)epartment put down a hore near the Bower siding, and be.. tween a- depth of 411 ft. and 453 ft. from the surface penetrated a. sea.m of brown coal 42 ft. thick. As the bore was put down to get water for railway purposes, little attention warv paid at the time to the .coal, and when water was struck It was of poor quality, so the bore was abandoned. The extent of the seam is unknown, as notning has been done since in the way of legiti mate mining, except to put down a shaft in the Bower station yard. and that...

PROGRESS OF PLAYERS Notes From Training Rooms NORWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
PROGRESS OF -PLAYERS Notes From Training Rooms IiORWOOD. Potts and Sibley are stiUl on the in Iured list, but there is a possibility of the interstae ruckman taking the field. Several players were injured last Satur day. Packham, Basil Scott, and Lee were limping on Sunday Poackham is a doubt ful starter against Gleneig. If Dobson is utilised as a ruckman against Glenelg, the selectom will prob ably recognise the claims of Whitfield for inclusion in the defensive division. Symonds is also playing remarkably good football with the B team, and may find a plaoe in the senior eighteen. How ever, he is essentially a rover, and there is little likelihood of him being given a run on the ball.

WAS IT A GOAL Incident at Norwood Match MEANT DEFEAT TO WEST [Newspaper Article] — News — 1 August 1923
WAS-IT A GOA Incident at Norwood Match MEANT DEFEAT TO WEST Whether a point that was kicked in the second quarter of the Norwood West match by Manuel, of West, should have been a goal has given rise to considerable controversy in football circles this week. In the second quarter Manuel marked and kicked a goal. Almost immediately the tall red-and-black man tried again from the wing, *and placed the ball truly. Just as the leather reached the opening, however, a bunch of players went up for a mark, and Clapson emerged holding the leather, so it seemed, right on the line. Contrary to the crowd's expectations a point was waved, and West's goal leeper kicked off. .Many maintained th:.t it was either a mark to Cla.pson or a goal. If he had taken the ball before it reached the line it was a mark to him. If he grasped it after it had been over the line it was a goal. The incident aroued keen specula tion. Although West took their defeat sportingly it is still maintained that it was a goal....
