FARMS ON THE SEA BOTTOM. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 March 1902

FARMS ON THE SEA BOTTOM. The addition of a whole province of water-covered land to the kingdom of the Netherlands has been proposed by the States general. The plan has in view the closing of the Zuydcr Zee, which, for centuries, is said to have been more harmful than helpful to Holland, by a dyke running from the North Holland coast to the island of Wieringen, and thence to the Frisian coast. The part of the bay .thus en compassed would be gradually drain ed, and it is thought that in 18 years 115,000 acres of fertile land would be recovered. The total cost of the work is estimated at about £7,500,000. The completion of the entire work is expected to produce 500,000 acres of soil valued at £32,000,000. It is in I tended to call the twelfth province of the Netherlands Wilhelmimaland, af I ter the young Queen^

SOME QUEER EXPERIMENTS TO TEST ANIMAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 March 1902

SOME QUEER EXPERIMENTS TO TEST ANIMAL INTELLIGENCE. ? Nearly every indiridual has his or her own ideas as to the degrees of animal intelligence, but there are three particular questions which oc cur to everybody : (1) Do animals reason ? (2) Can animals talk to each oilier ? (3) Do animals learn by im itation, or do they imitate at all ? » » * * * * It would, of course, be much more popular, and, in a way, much more interesting to say that the scientists had definitely proved that animals do think, can talk, and are imitative, but science more often throws down than establishes popular beliefs, and as a result of recent experiments with cats, dogs, and rats, well-known scientists have come to the conclus ion that those animals, at least, do not think, learn little or nothing by imitation, and cannot communicate ideas to each other. These conclus ions are, of course, radically opposed to popular belief. Intelligent dogs, horses, cats, rats and other animals, have been celebrated in a...

ROBERTSON. Opening of tlie New Methodist Clturch. LUNGH AND PU13LIQ MEETINU, For many years past the Wesleyans in, the Rob ertson district have been desirous of erecting a new church—one that would be more sightly in the eyes of the public, and a structure worthy of the great denomination it is intended to represent.' All the hopes and anticipations of the adherents and.friends have now been realised to the fullest oxtent, for the township oan now boast of an excellent and splen didly finished plica of worship.

THE DEPOPULATION OF THE HIGHLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 March 1902

THE DEPOPULATION OF THE HIGHLANDS. A journey through the Scottish Highlands has, year by year, become increasingly melancholy. The great lairds or Highland' chiefs have nearly all fallen into poverty—very many have disappeared, and their castles have either turned, into ruins or have been bought by sharp money-makers from the South. But that' is not the saddest thing in the landscape. Be fore their impoverishment most of the chiefs had parted with the old ideas of sympathy and interest which held the clan together as if it were one family, whose prosperity and troubles were shared by all the members, and in a special degree by the head of the clan. The emergence of the chief into . a magnificent estate-owner began the process of estrangement; his fellow clansmen became dependants,1 small tenents, subjects of a master—gillies. For a century they lived fairly well in villages, but economic conditions, the absorption of nearly all the land .for the purposes of ,sport, the in creasing r...

FISHY FOODS ANALYSED. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 March 1902

FISHY FOODS ANALYSED. There is a widespread belief that phosphorus is brain food, and that fishes of all kinds are rich in this. Analyses of fishes of all kinds says Dr. Langworlliy, show that this class of meat contains no larger per centage of phosphorous than the llesli of any other animal.' But, however this may be, the doctor finds phosphorous is more of a brain food than .nitrogen, potassium, and other elements occurring in the tissues of animals. Experience how-, ever shows that a fish is a particular ly desirable food for men of sedentary habits, of which brain workers form a large class. This is because these men do not need much of those foods which supply energy and heat to the somewhat complex engine commonly known as man. Hard working men—that is, those who work hard with their bodies need these food ingredients more than sedentary men. They derive thciu from vegetables and the fat of meat. Fish contains little fat when raw and undressed, but when cooked, dressed and se...

HEAD DOWNWARD IN MID-AIR. HEROISM WHICH DID NOT COUNT RISKS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 March 1902

HEAD DOWNWARD IN MID-AIR. HEROISM WHICH DID NOT COUNT RISKS. Wagner was the name of a police man who once performed a deed of splendid pluck. The following is an account of the affair. It was on the stroke of midnight and Wagner was patrolling his beat. Suddenly the fire-engine came tearing along the dark street. It vanished, •leaving . behind it .a trail of glowing cinders which Wagner followed. In a few minutes he reached the scene of the fire. There were few people about, for as yet only a column of grey smoke was rising from the house. In the middle of the street two scantily clad men were gesticulating wildly. Wagner looked -up and saw, on a narrow ledge that ran just below a four-story window a girl in a white wrapper. Her back was towards the pavement Her hands were raised up towards the sloping edge of the roof. She had crept from the open window, and the smoke was now reaching out behind her along' the wall. It was a sheer drop of fifty feet to the stone pave ment, and the ...

RUNNING MACHINERY BY SAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 March 1902

| RUNNING MACHINERY,$f>.S AND. An interesting little story was toK : some little' time ago of someone in the practically waterless parts of I Western America, where there was I barely sufficient water for drinking purposes, who proposed 'to drive, or was actually driving, a number of " araslras " by sand, the latter turn ing a large over-shot wheel, taking the place of water. The intention according to a writer in ' Gassier's-' was at first to run the " arastras" by means of a large watermill, but the uncertainty of this power finally led to the adoption of the plan men tioned. A windmill. still was to form part of the scheme, but it^was to run a conveyor to carry the sand up.to a large elevated tank. From this the sand was 'to be eventually allowed to run out upon the overshot wheel, causing it to revolve just as it would under the weight of a stream of water, and the sand tank has suf ficient storage capacity to insure con tinuous running of the plant.
