Ketch Aristides PROGRESS AT DOVER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 5 April 1934
Ketch Aristides ... r PROGRESS AT DOVER. Good progress is being made with the work of lengthening the large Hobart-owned interstate trading ketcli Aristides, at present lying on the slipways at Dover, and which is being lengthened by some 20 feet. As previously described in this paper, the intricate and interesting work of lengthening a ship consists of sawing it in half crosswise, and then hauling the two seyered ends or halves apart lengthwise, the distance required to be lengthened, and then building in to the 'cut' with new work. For the past two months the ship wrights have been continuously working on the vessel, and almost all the heavy ribs and timbers have been placed in position, and approximately half the planking of the sides com pleted. The undertaking has caused much local interest, and also some wonderment, especially amongst those unacquainted with ships or such a venture.

There was slight wind in the early part of the day that varied from westerly to northerly, and' the sky was overcast all day. Rain commenced to fall shortly after 4 p.m., and continued for about half an hour. It was not sufficient to do much good to vegeta tion, and made those who had left home withou...
THE VALUE OF TRENCHING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 5 April 1934
THE VALUE OF TRENCHING. To maintain tlie fertiiity of soil, if crops of first , quality be desired of either fruit, . flowers .or. vegetables, and ?more especially, for the farm garden, it is essential that portions of ground be trenches or double dug periodically to attain, this object. .. r No,, amount of -niariiiring. can equal deep ^cultivation .or?.act as -a substitute. . Trenching makes for freer drainage, ;the outlet of injurious acids and the inlet of light and air, and the purifi cation 'of the soil, &nd more food avail able to plants. A good layer of garden 'refuse, such as weeds, leaves, pea haulm, stems and herbaceous plants, should be placed in the bottom of the trench, with a good dressing of manure near ?the1 top spit. The conditions thus afforded ,of cool .liess and moisture, favorable to the vigorous and healthy root growth of plants,, enables them to come through dry periods as good crops and little impaired. '

CINDERELLA'S' ORIGIN. A- Universal- Heroine. - - Cinderella,, the little ' Cinder Girl, heroine of one of the oldest and most popular pantomimes, is a universal heroine. There are about 400 ver sions of Cinderella, and, no matter where you travel, whether it be in Arctic Lapland, in the warm Southern Seas, in Japan or China, India or Ice-' land, Sardinia or Cyprus, Finland or the West Indies, South Africa or Cey lon, you will hear of Cinderella. . The actual stories may have slight variations of our own familiar theme, which is a translation of Perrault's 'Cendrillon' (and it must be remem bered that- the glass slipper we associ ate with Cinderella is merely due to a mistranslation of pantoufle en vair , — a fur slipper, which was confused in . the translation with en verre — ? glass), but in all the variations we - f-find the little Cind,er Girl has youth and beauty which arouses the jealousy ; of cruel and unscrupulous relatives, and usually there is a prince, or some 'being posse...
