Both on the Make. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 20 January 1906

Both on the Make. Not long ago a pair of rooks built their nest in one of a cluster of trees in a gentleman's grounds. The owner was delighted at the prospect of hav ing a rookery practically at his back door, but the fanner who owned the surrounding kind didn't look at the matter in the same light. The farmer was no great lover of rooks, and he gave his sons orders to snoot mem at we nnsi oyiiuixumiy. One morning the farmer received this note from his neighbor: — 'Sir, — I wish your boys would let my rooks alone. I'm trying to make a rookery.' The farmer altered three words and returned the note. 'Sir, — I wish your rooks would let my crops alone. I'm trying to make a living.'

Retaliated. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 20 January 1906

Retaliated. At a dinner-party recently, Mark Twain made a most amusing little speech. As the writer sat down, a lawyer rose, put his hands deep into his trousers pockets, as was his habit, and laughingly inquired of those pres ent: 'Doesn't it strike the company as a little unusual that a professional hu morist should be funny?' When the laugh that greeted this sally had subsided, Mark Twain drawl ed out: 'Doesn't It strike the company as a little unusual that a lawyer should have his hands in his own pockets?'

THE ENDS OF JUSTICE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER I. His Lordship is Indisposed. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 20 January 1906

THE ENDS OF JUSTICE. BY FRED. M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER I. His Lordship is Indisposed. It was nothing but a dream. He would -wake up presently, with the heaving deck under bis feet and the salt of the sea pungent in his nostrils. Meanwhile the dream was horribly re alistic; so were the prison bars, the acrid emell of fresh whitewash, the tramp of heavy feet in the clanging corridors, the rattle of keys in distant locks. 'My God!' George Cathcart cried. 'I shall go mad. 1 shall ? ' He paused, overcome with the crush Ing burden of It all. He paced up and down the narrow cell, backwards and forwards, restlessly, like a tiger in a cage, his magnificent chest heaving like that of a distressed runner. A criminal? Well, perhaps. But there was nothing criminal about the clear-cut brown face, nothing furtive in thoBe clear, blue eyes. And yet, unless1 some miracle happened, George Cathcart stood face to face wi...

PRACTICAL USES OF RADIUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 20 January 1906

PRACTICAL USES OF RADIUM. One scientist, whose mind evidently sees some practical use in everything, has made use of radium in a rather commonplace way. Botanists have a way of investigat ing the structure of things by imbedding them in paraffin and then cutting the ma terial into very thin sections. The act of cutting frequently electrifies the sec tions, causing thara to adhere to the knife, to fold up or to make themselves in other ways dilfiouft to handle. This trouble has keen overcome by this practical scienlist by placing a small tube ot radium salt near the knife, the effect of which is to dissipate the electric charges imparted to the sections as they are cut. Another use of radium, hardly as vulgar as the one just mentioned, is suggested in a paper read before the RovaJ Society by Sir William CroDkcs. Sir William was in vestiaatin^ the character of the coatjng which radium salts impart to diamond! exposed tt- their acUou. The surface ol a diamond thu*. exposed for some tim...

POULTRY. STRAIGHT-BREASTED FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 20 January 1906

i POULTRY. STRAIGHT-BREASTED FOWLS. The public will usually buy In the market -a fowl which has a straight breast in preference to one which is crooked-breaBted, and for a very good reason — thit a bird which has a straight breast-bone will usually carry more meat upon it and will conse quently look plumper and bigger, and will command, therefore, a better price, besides finding a more ready sale. The principal reason why so many chick ens are crooked-breasted is that farm ers allow them to perch too early in life. Chickens ought always to be roosted on straw on the floor if they are Intended for market, and should not be allowed to perch at all; then any of them showing a disposition to wards a crooked breast will not be likely to develop it. It may be remark ed that many chickens have a disposi tion in that direction, particularly those which have been inbred. The breastbone, like the leg-bones, has a tendency to break, and the birds, if they are allowed to perch too early, will c...

THE STORY OF HIS LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 20 January 1906

THE STORY OF HIS LIFE. A lady who went up to Rotorua, the famous New Zealand health resort, for her health seemed proud of being an invalid. She lost no opportunity of stating that she came to recuper ate. She did not hesitate to enter in to conversation with any person with whom she came in contact giving ad vice, climatologlcal or physiological, to invalids, and seeking the same from those of robust constitution. Her conversation was always prefaced with the introductory inquiry so common to visitors: 'Did you come here for your health?' She thus addressed a stal wart ruddy-visaged young man at a dinner-table a few days since, and the following conversation ensued: — 'Yes, madam; I came here probably the weakest person you ever saw. I had no use of my limbs; in fact, my bones were but little tougher than car tilages. I had no intelligent control of a single muscle nor the use of a single faculty.' 'Great Heavens!' exclaimed the as tonished auditor; 'and you lived?' 'I did, madam, ...
