Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

Correspondence. [.The Editor wishes it to be understood that he does not necessarily endorse opinions expressed by Correspon dents under this heading.] TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—In your issue of23rdinst. there appears a request (or is it a demand?) by " One of the Five" that your Borung Correspondent should report the names of five foolish fellows, who, in a pre vious issue, were charged with having caused annoyance at a concert at Bo rung. I am pleased to be able to supply the required information ; but, I might ask, is it not rather unreasonable to expect one to be able to furnish the name of every Tom, Dick, Harry, Lord or Duke who happens to honor us with his company at a public entertainment, an J departs in such haste that he ne glects to leave his card ? However, as I fee! somewhat grateful to "One of the Five" for providing such a com plete corroboration of my report as he does when he claims to be one of the five, 1 have made enquiries amongst members of the audience and have bee...

MAKE YOUR DISTRICT KNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

MAKE YOUR DISTRICT KNOWN. Concerning some parts of this exten sive district news comes but seldom. This is not entirely our fault; we hare no miraculous power of knowing what is happening at all the places'within our area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease. If no on« else is doing it for your district will VOU try on these lines ? Send accounts of public and social events in your township or neighbour hood, such as weddings, deaths, accid ents, concerts, sports, social gatherings, matters touching district industries, etc. Write the names of persons and places very distinctly. Don't bother about grammar or spell ing ; it's the editor's work to look nftet those trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. | Write only on one side of the paper. Give information, but let criticism alone. Write your name and address on some corner—not for publication, but to provt good faith. ..... /...

GO-AHEAD VILLAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

GO-AHEAD VILLAGE. As a result or the hobby of a young resident In Hurstmonceaux, this pretty Sussex village now enjoys all the advantages ot an electric light in stallation. Mr. C. W. Von Roemer, sou of Baron Von Roomer, took up electrical engineering as a hobby a few years ago, fitting up his father's house with electric light. To-day, as the result of this early hohby, the vil lage at night resembles a patch of Piccadilly, and housewives turn on a switch to cook their husbands' din ners and heat their rooms. When I visited this "electric vil lage," says a writer, I found that nearly everybody, including the blacksmith, butcher and baker, were using electric power to help them In their work. Mr. Von Roemer explained how the "miracle" had been brought about. "After fitting up my father's house with electric light," he said, "I though it would be<i good Idea to ex tend tho plant to the village. "At first • tho villagers objected. They had never known any other light except...

STRANGE TIMEKEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

STRANGE TIMEKEEPERS. To ascertain the time at night the Apache Indians employed a gourd on which the stars of the heavens were marked. As the constellations rose in the sky the Jndian referred to his gourd and found out the hour. By turning the gourd around ho could tell the order in which the constella tions might be expected to nppear.. The hill people of Assam reckon time and distance by the number of quids of betel nuts chewed. It will be remembered how, according to Wash ington Irving, the Dutch Colonial As sembly was invariably, dismissed at the last puff of the third pipe of to bacco of Governor Wouter Van Twll ler. A Montagnls Indian of Canada will set up a tall stick In the snow when travelling ahead of friends who are to follow. He marks with his foot the line of shadow ca,st, and by the change in the angle of the shadow the oncoming party can tell, on arriving at the spot, about how far ahead the loader is.

IMPROVING THE MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 30 May 1914

IMPROVING THE MEMORY. Notebooks are the worst enemies of a good memory. If you don't use your legs, the muscles get flabby and are unable to stand any sudden strain Imposed upon them. The same thing happens with the memory. When you form the habit of jotting down In a notebook every trifling item you wish to remember, you cannot reasonably expect the neglected memory to do Its work eflicientiy. You have, perhaps, heard that the best way to make sure of awaking at a particular hour in the morning is to say the hour aloud to yourself sev eral times just 'before' nestling down to sleep. Should you intend to rise at six o'clock you impress this hour upon the mind so firmly that you are almost sure to awake somewhere near it. By extending this system you can obtain a quite serviceable memory. Associate things together. Make an assertion like, "After I have cleaned my bicycle to-morrow I must do so and-so," and let the command sink in. The two duties may be totally dissim ilar, yet you wi...
