TELEGRAPH POLES OF CONCRETE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
TELEGRAPH POLES OF CON CRETE. Concrete tubes, posts, etc., are produced by centrifugal whirling. Ac- tion at 'a factory in Saxony. A sljeel skeleton may be used to'g^Ve strength to the pipe, and this is -in-, serted in a mould, with a suitable ce ment mixture, and this moulS — which is m . two sections — is given 500- tCT '1,000' revolutions per miniite for 10 to' 1 5 mindtes, in a serie3*of* special machines: . Asbfestosf- fibre is introduced to prevent the separa tion of sand, etc., from the concrete. The pipes formed are given uniform thickness by keeping- the mouldy in /a horizontal position-, and the shape may be varied by inclining fhe moulds.'

WHICH DID SHE BLOW? [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
WHICH DID SHE BLOW? A little city-bred boy who had never seen a cow while on a visit to his uncle's in the country, walked out .across the fields with his grand pa. Seeing a cow, he was greatly excited, and asked : 'What is that, Grandoa?' Why that is only a cow,' was the reply. 'What are those things on her head ? ' 'Horns,' said the grandpa. The two walked on. Presently the cow mooed feud and long. The boy was amazed. Looking back, he ex claimed: 'Which horn did she blow, grandpa?'
THE BARE TREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
THE BARE TREE. At the edge of the woods was a young 'Tree. It was spring time; all the Trees were getting new leaves, but this young Tree was still as bare as in ..winter. The Wind, passing by one day, tipard a sad. moaning sound. He stopped to find what made it. Then he heard a voice, all teary, calling to him. 'Oh, Wind, what shall I do? It is time for my leaves to come out — all the Trees round have, theirs.' 'Every day the men walk past with sharp axes ; they look for dead Trees to cut down for firewood. They pointed to me yesterday, and said I was dead and must be cut down soon. 'But Wind, dear W'nd- I am not dead ! I can feel all my little leaves inside, but I cannot bring them out. Can you help me?' Then the Wind blew up and blew down and blew this way and that way, as Winds do when they are thinking hard of where to go next. He was sorry for the bare little Tree. He had brought it in his arms when it was a baby seed, and had laid it in the soft earth, so that now he felt lik...
THE TIN ROOSTER ON THE BARN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
THE TIN ROOSTER ON THE - BARN. The little White Hen had told the Bantam Rooster that the Tin Roos ter on the top of the barn was able _ to crow louder than the little fellow, and it had worried the Bantam so he decided to go up to the barn and see what the Tin Rooster was really lilrp. _ 1 He climbed and climbed until fin ally he was so near^the Tin fellow that he could almost see his eyes, although they were on the other side from where the Bantam was standing. , 'I say, there, you Rooster, I should like to hear you crow,' .said the Bantam. But the Tin Rooster only turned round and looked at the little fellow, as much as to say, 'I am very busy telling which way the . ..wind is blowing, and I should ap . predate it if you would go away and let me alone, for I have a Jot of business to attend to.' 'Aren't you going to speak to me even?' asked the Bantam Rooster. The Tin Rooster said not a word, but looked as wise as he could, and all of a sudden the wind changed, and he whirled arou...
AN INDOOR GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
AN INDOOR GARDEN. Here is a simple plan by which even very little folks can make a wonderful window-garden, which grows without earth or flower-pots, yet needs the sun and must be wa tered every day. First of all we need a large turnip or a generous size carrot. Without puncturing the walls of the cavity, scoop out, with a sharp-pointed knife, the root end of the vegetable. Pass through two holes, or three if the root is large, a piece of tape or soft twine ; hang the plants in the sunniest win dow, fill the hollows with water, and do not allow them 'to become dry. In a week or so you will be delighted to see green leaves curl up about the rough skin of the root, hiding it completely, and making it the prettiest hanging-basket in the world. The carrot leaf is fern like and feathery; perhaps you will like it the best. Keep the little wells filled with water, hang the plants where they will not swing or . . be knocked, and you may have a small hanging garden all your own .to enjoy in ...
Random Readings. THE REAL AFRICAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
Random Readings. THE REAL AFRICAN. Some amusing stories of African natives are related in 'Scribner's Magazine' by Mr. Herbert Ward. Two or three of them may be quot ed 'here: A touching incident, illustrating the sentiment of gratitude following efforts to give relief to a suffering baby. Some months later I was surprised in the middle of the night by seeing a dark shadow cast upon the entrance to my tent. A woman's voice, hushed iri tone, said to me : 'Here, O white man, take this egg ! Many moons .ago my baby suffered. You gave it medicine and it is well. I am a poor woman ; I have nothing. But — O take this egg!' Much touched by her words, I arose from my bed, accepted the egg, and placcd it in one of my boots for safe keeping. The following morning, whilst my caravan was getting ready for the day's march, I gave the egg to my cook,, instructing him to poach it for my breakfast. A few minutes later he returned to me, holding in his hand a broken egg-shell, saying, 'Master, that ...
AN APPREHENSIVE PATIENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
AN APPREHENSIVE PATIENT. Willie always had a great aver sion for doctors. So the day he was taken down with a fever and he heard his mother say she was going to call in a physician the lad protested vehemently and declared he wouldn't allow him to enter the sick-room. Wevertneiess tne pnysician came, and was hanging up his coat in the hall when the boy's mother ap proached the sick-bed to allay the child's apprehensions. 'Now, Willie, you mustn't take on so!' she said. 'The doctor isn't going to hurt you one bit! Just be patient a minute while he's here, and then he'll go right away again.' 'I'm afraid he'll do something to me!' exclaimed the youth, anxious ly watching the door. 'The ?- boy next door told me the doctor stuck a big needle in his arm one time he was sick and it hurt him terrible!' 'But the doctor won't stick a needle in you, Willie;- all he'll do is) to take your temperature. f- This caused the lad to take- on all the more, and, as the physicial en-, tered the room, h...
HONORS FOR GIPSIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
HONORS FOR GIPSIES. The gipsies were not always a despised and outcast race. When they first migrated into Western Europe in. the fifteenth century their leaders were received at .the Courts of Kings and Princes, who readily 'furnished them with pass ports through tneir dominions; ana one famous ' gipsy, -Duke : Mifchael, was even received in private audi ence by the Pope. In England, the gipsies were at first exception ally well received, and grea^, nobles like the Duke of Suffolk entertained them;at their castles. In Scotland, in 1505, Jaines'IV. entertained An -thonius Gagirius, Earl J o£-' Little Egypt, and gave him a. lettj^i^b£-in-. troduction to the King of Denmark ; and in 1450 James V.' recognised the right, of ' ' our louit (beloved). John- nie Faw, lord^and' ferle of Littill Egypt,' to exercise an almost regal* ; jurisdiction over ^his followers 'in conformity with [the laws .of Egypt. '
WHERE ASTRAKHAN COMES FROM. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
WHERE ASTRAKHAN COMES FROM. 'Astrakhan' is always considered i 'quite correct' as regards' fashion 1 for man, woman, and child.: It is 1 calculated that for its manufacture 1 r, 500, 000 skins are exported from Bukhara, in Central Asia, annually, the district around providing the best 1 lambs for the purpose, although re peated experiments to rear suitable animals have been made in various parts of Asia and Europe.' So far but little success has attended these efforts', and Bukhara stands sup reme. Some of the flocks raised number as . many as 5,000 head. Af ter a purchase has been concluded, the skins are roughly dressed, and then sent to their destination.
EXTRARORDINARY BALANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
EXTRARORDINARY BALANCE The Italian physician Salvioni devised a micro- balance of such ex treme delicacy that it clearly dem onstrated the loss of weight of musk by' volatilisation. Thus the invisible perfume floating . off in the a'r is indir ectly weighed. ..The essential part of the apparatus - is a very ;thin thread of class fixed atone end and extended horizontally.' - The micro scopic objects to be weighed are placed upon the glass thread near its free en'd^ and: -the . amount of flexure produced is observed with a microscope magnifying one hundred diameters. A. mote weighing one thousandth of a milligramme is said perceptibly to bend the thread, i
FIVE YEARS WITHOUT FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
FIVE YEARS WITHOUT FOOD; A most wonderful creature is the specimen. of the proteous, or blirici newt, - found in the -grotto of. the Maddalena, in the:. subterranean caves 'of Carniola,- Austria. ? - A* wrii er gives^ the following interesting descrijption 'of these small, eel-like creatures : 'The -skin of their blunt*. wcugc-biiapcu iiea.ub entirely covers two insignificant bulges where 'the eye-sockets are placed. * Yet there can be no doubt as to theip sensi tiveness. to light. The fringe of their gills contracts visibly when a ray of light falls upon them, and the reptile becomes' excited to frenzy by its mysterious pain. .Ah extra ordinary feature of 'the proteous7 Is its ability to exist without visible food for as, long ;as five years in some cases.

FOWLS NEED GRIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
FOWLS NEED GRIT. Although grit is not quite a food, it is absolutely essential to the bird's digestion, and should be considered with feeding arrangements. Fowls fed on ground grain consume near ly twice as much grit as do these birds -having all whole grain.' As I say, grit performs an important function in relation to digestion, ! and young or old fowls cannot be really -healthy and vigorous without , its aid. The anatomy of- fowls proves that grit takes the place of teeth', and, on opening !a fowl's giz- 1 zard, it will be found to be practic ally full of flint, and such like, used in preparing the fotod for the action 1 of the stomach. The fowl's gizzard is remarkably strong and muscular, and, although no bone in it, will 1 grind the hardest flint. Fowls on a free range can generally find the necessary grit, but when kept 'in con finements must have it as regularly supplied as food. It is estimated that 100 fowls will consume 1 cwt. of grit in twelve months. , A prudent man is l...
MALE OR NO MALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
MALE OR NO MALE. I | A correspondent again raises the question of the advantage.* or dis advantages of having a male bird with the hens when eggs are the only requirement. He wants to differ with my often expressed opi nion that the presence of a male bird does' not increase the number of eggs. Of course, my worthy reader is entitled to an opinion as well as I am, but perhaps a little proof will help me to win him over to my side. A series of experiments undertaken at the New York Ex periment 'Station made it very con clusively appear that when hens were kept without a male eggs were produced at about 30 per cent., less cost than exactly similar pens where cocks and cockerels were kept. In some instances, too, the production of eggs, was nearly a third larger in pens where males were not kept than in others of precisely the same j kind, managed in the same jvay, ex cept that the presence of the male was permitted. Keeping cocks or cockerels in laying pens, therefore, except where fe...
A FORTRESSED CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
A FORTRESSED CHURCH. Durham Cathedral has been call ed 'half church of God, half castle 'gainst the Scot.' At Dinant, the most interesting town in the beauti ful district of the Ardennes, in Bel gium, is another celebrated church which, although it has never been used for the purpose of defence (at any rate, in modern times), is guar ded by. a fortress perched on the huge mass of granite rock which rises behind it. The baptistery of this fine Gothic church of Notre Dame belonged to an earlier place of worship, which was destroyed in 1227 by the falling of a block from the cliff. Quite close to the church are 408 steps leading to the cita del. , ,
Facts & Fancies. THE GLOWWORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
Facts & Fancies. ? 1 m . ; THE GLOWWORM. Few people are aware that . the glowworm is not a worm at all, but a species of beetle, to which the common firefly or lightning bug is closely, related. The true glowworm is the female, and is without wings. ?Its short legs and long body give it much the appearance Of a worm, and it can withdraw its triangular 'head* into its neck. The adult insect feeds but little ; indeed, there is rea son to suppose that the adult male does not feed at' all. The larva, on the other hand, is carnivorous, and devours small molluscs, either dead or alive. The light given but by the glowworm comes from a yellow ish substance, located .on the under side of the abdomen. Though this light appears to glow steadily, it is really intermittent, consisting of flashes in quick succession, about 100 to the minute. Besides the ordinary light rays, Roiitgen rays are given off.
GOLD AND SUPERSTITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
GOLD AND SUPERSTITION. There is; a great deal of super stitious romance in connection with' gold. The ancients perceived* a similarity between the glitter and glow of burnished gold and the col our of the sun, and consequently all kinds of strange virtues were attri buted to the metal. The fact of gold turning black when heated, and shining brilliantly when bur nished, was likened by them to the sun's absence in darkness, and his gloriously glowing light when pres ent ; whilst the ductility and mallea bility of the gold .was compared with the' changeableness in quality of the light of the sun, which in winter the sight, cap^dwell upon calmly, asjon dull gold, whilst in the sum mer his light is blinding to the eye, just as the vision is dazzled by the sheen and glitter of the burnished gold. Therefore, .the sun was re garded as the prototype of the shin ing metal, which all men covet, from the highest to the least, and so the ancients formed gold into to kens, mascots', gods, and all...
RESISTING POWER OF SNOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 February 1911
RESISTING POWER OF SNOW. In a discussion at , the' Royal So ciety in London of some experiments on the effects of 'sudden pressures, attention was called to a singular experience \vhich, it was said, per sons who go shooting in water sometimes1 have. If the muzzle of a gun happens to get plugged up with a little snow the gun invari ably bursts when fired in that con dition. Light as the plug of snow is, it requires a definite time for pressure, however great, to get it tnder way, and during this short time the tension of the powder gases becomes so great that the barrel of the ordinary fowling-piece is unable to withstand it.
