Cricket. THE ROCK v. YERONG- CREEK The Yerong Creek team journeyed here last Satui-day amidst heat and , dust to try conclusions with the local eleven, which was, it may be men tioned, a hard matter to get together, —perhaps on account of the wea.th.er: being too warm, or perchance thev thought that 'th'e Yeroing ' Creek;tqs were ''.'.' too warm.1' Hp(w^ver', as, th,4 result qf the. m,atch pr.qy.ed, Verong wer.e winners by' half a' h,eadj ' tlio qar}-,o.w mar.gjn qf orje pun proving them victorious.

The residence itself has not been designed for accommodation on a large scale, it is built for family comfort ; never theless, many have proved that there has been room enough, generositv enough, large-heartedness enough to give the residence a deserved reputa tion ^for liberal hospitality.

The Farmer. SALT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
.The Farmer. ff SALT... The best sanitary and hygienic agent we possess at the present day is common salt. Possibly its cheap ness causes many to overlook its value as a preservative or renova* tor. Salt sweetens the pasture, prevents mustiness in hay, and moistens dry soil. It purifies stab-, les and cowsheds, and, indeed, is one of the best known insecticides. In the domestic circle salt is. used for seasoning food and preserving meat, and is a necessity in many well regulated households. On the land salt is invaluable. It improves the crops and ripens them earlier, while the grain is plumper and the straw whiter. Therefore, by all means use salt, which is so useful at home and on the farm.

Public Opinion. THE "GAG" AT THE COUNCIL To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
Public Opinion. ? :o: ? THE 'GAG' A'l THE COUNCIL To the Editor. Sir, — Please allow me space, en-nigh to point out to the public what I think ought' to be pointed out to them. It is now a meeting or two back since Cr Bunyan got a motion passed that no councillor should ask more than three questions at a meet ing. This is what I call applying the ' gag,' and it is not only Cr Fraser who is gagged, but the rate payers. If any of us want to ask a question at the table through Cr Fraser it is ten chauces to one he will tell us that as he has three questions already he cannot ask another for us. Is this not gagging the ratepayers f I say it iei It may suit the officials not to bo troubled with questions! but it does not suit the ratepayers. 1 hope you will be good enough to publish this, and oblige, 800THStDlS RA«A£tftt,
Random Readings. WOOD OF CIGAR-BOXES [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
Random Readings. — . v ? WOOD OF CIGAR-BOXES That cigar-boxes are not made of cedar will surprise ninety-nine out of a, hundred smokers. 'They are made of Spanish cedar,' they may declarer Yes, but Spanish cedar is not cedar. He declares that Span ish cedar has no relation to the coni ferous trees, and is found only in the tronics. Dreciselv the ulace which real cedar declines to inhabit. The confusion of names is due to the fact that in Spanish the name of this particular tree, cedrela, the Spanish name for cedar is sedro. The Spanish cedar, as the cedrela has come to be known in English, is closely allied to mahogany. The two grow side by- side and the ced rela ? is often both intentionally and unintentionally cut as mahogany, shipped, sold, and made into furni ture under that attractive name; but the trees are quite distinct, the wood of the cedrela being much soft er and less beautifully' marked. The cigar-box is the finished product in to which practically all Spanish cedar is ...
EARLY OLYMPIC GAMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
EARLY OLYMPIC GAMES. At first, says' a writer in the 'Century Magazine,' the Olympic games were a match of runners over a course of 600 Greek feet, being confined to a single day. Up to the fourteenth Olympiad a sinele race prevailed. Later, new contests were introduced, though at first the games were still confined to a day. Then a double race was introduced. Longer races began with the fif teenth Olympiad, while ^rest ling contests- and the pentath lon were introduced with the eighteenth Olympiad. The in crease to five days began in the seventy-seventh. The pentathlon came into great favour. - It contain ed five events: leaping, throwing the discus, hurling the javelin, run ning, and wrestling. Superiority in three out of the five constituted a victory. The leap was a standing long jump with weights. The most brutal contest of all was the pan cratium, a combination of boxing and wrestling' which would have done credit to the most severe rough-and-tumble s fighting ever known. This...
HOW THEY GOT OUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
HOW THEY COT OUT. Uncle Ephraim had two hogs, which he kept in a pen at the rear end of his little lot. They were of the 'razor- back' variety, and although they were fed bountifully with kitchen waste, it seemed impossible to put any fat (/*£,. their attenuated frames. One morning £ when he went out to feed them they were not there. They had disappear ed, leaving no clue to the manner in which they had made their escape. 'What's the matter, Uncle Eph ?' inquired a neighbour, noticing the deep dejection with which the old man was looking down into the empty pen. 'My hawgs is done gone, sah,' he answered. 'Stolen?' 'No, sah. I don't see no signs dat anybody tuck 'cm.' 'Did they climb out over the top?' 'No, dcy couldn't a' done dat.' 'How do you think they got away?' 'Well, sah,' said Uncle Ephraim, 'my 'pinion is dat dem hawgs kind o' raised deirselves up on aidge an' crope through a crack.'
RALPH'S LUCKY WHISTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
RALPH'S LUCKY WHISTLE. 'Mother, you will get it for me, won't you?' pleaded Ralph. ''Tisn't that I want the suit so much, but I do wanf-a lucky whistle. Billie Blake got one with his suit, and since then he's won every game of marbles. Besides, he hasn't had a bit of bad luck.' 'And why does he call it a 'lucky whistle,' dear?' laughed mother. 'Oh, 'cause Hie noise it makes is sort o' trembly, and — oh there's other things, too. Billie knows all about it. Some birds sound just like Billie's wHIstle; and if your whistle sounds like a lucky bird, your whistle's lucky. Billie can telh what all the lucky birds are.' Mother smiled. 'T understand now,' said she, gravely. A few days after Ralph's sailor suit arrived. With it came a little metal whistle. Ralp.h whooped with delight. He felt immensely proud of his new clothes, but his joy at owning a 'lucky whistle' knew no bounds. That very afternoon he sauntered forth in his new suit, which mother had permitted him to don at the lad's earn...
A LECTURE ON CHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
A LECTURE ON CHIPS. A certain professor of histology wno delivers lectures in one of the Eastern colleges is not averse to a quiet bit of . diversion on the side, as instance of hia wife's discovery. 'See here, Roberts!' said she to tho doctor, as she fumbled in his pockets after his late arrival home, 'what are all these red, white, and blue discs 1 find here in your pocket?' 'Eh? The blue ones? Oh!— yes- is — I use — er — I mean discs — to illus trato my lectures on the blood. You see, the white ones represent the white corpuscles and the red ones red cor corpuscles of the blood.' 'And, pray, what do the blue ones represent?' 'Eh? the blue ones? Oh! — yes— h' m — why — er — certainly — they repre sent the corpuscles of tho venous blood.' Well, maybo she believed him, and maybe — well, he quit playing poker at any rate. — 'Harper's Weekly.'
THE GREAT FIRE AT OSAKA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
THE GREAT FIRE AT OSAKA The following account of a great fire, is by a Japenese. schoolgirl, re lating things that she saw and heard at Osaka. It reads a little curious, but I am giving it as it was printed in 'Friendly Greetings' without any corrections, just to show you how wel! she has mastered our difficult language : It was in the morning, about four o'clock, on' August 31st, 1909. All creation slept soundly in the protec tion of God. The round moon was shining over the earth. Sudden fire-bells broke the silence of the night. Fire ! fire ! fire I We started from our sleep, and opened the door to see where it was. It was so far that we could see only the faint light in the east, so we went to bed once more, praying that it would soon stop. Tdid not mind the fire, and work ed and played and studied as I do usually. _ In the morning the greengrocer who comes to our home every day came and .told us that the fire was going on violently yet. Presently the special paper went all round...
STUDENT OF SHAKESPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
STUDENT OF SHAKESPEARE. Tho office-boy sat in the corner, bus ily engaged in reading a book. Strange to say, it was not 'The Adventures of Bunco Jim,' 'Daisy Dean, tfio De mon Detective,' uor even a thrilling narrative of more or less correct lifo on the plains. Ho was reading Shakes peare. An expression of peaco and joy was on his face that caused those who knew him to wonder if he had at last ex perienced a chango of heart. His eyes ' sparkled and his whole expression was one of happiness. Finally ho turned to a worker at another desk. 'Say, Jim,' he said. 'I'vo got a question for you. Did you ever read ' Shakespeare?'' 'Yep,' was the reply. 'And d'yer know what he fciik; about?' 'Yep.' - 'Den maybe you can help me.' . 'What is it?' 'Well, I want to . know which was de man, Romeo or Jttliet?'
A ROYAL DINNER PARTY IN ABYSSINIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
A ROY AX DINNER PARTY IN ABYSSINIA. The new Negus of Abyssinia, like his predecessors on the throne be fore him, gives a public dinner to all and sundry of his subjects once a week,' when they may feast to their heart's content. On the three ereat annual festivals this 'gheber'1 be comes a spectacle probably unequal led, in the. annals of Court dinners. An Italian traveller who has recent ly been privileged to be present describes it graphically. The back ground of the barn-like structure which serves as dining-room is all but filled with the famous throne bed which the French Republic had presented to the late King Menclik; the present Negus, on the occasion of the State dinner, sat on the edge of it when the European visitors, 'the first to, enter the room, had hied past him, each one being received with a smile and a shake of the .hand.' /? ? _ ? .???? ?;? ; _ .: ' '' '?.-'..'

A BATTLE IN OLD JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
A BATTLE IN OLD JAPAN. Here we have set before us the life and work of Nobunaga, the Cromwell, of -Hideyoski, the Bis marck, and of lyeyasu; the law giver, of Japan. The great battle of Sekigahira, the story of the Forty-seven Ronins, , and that strange and peculiar character istic of the Japanese, harakiri, are vividly pictured. In ~his des cription of the battle of Sekigahira the author says : *' 'From eight o'clock till noon they fought; all the time it was manto man work;, barking cannons had no affect. Thousands of sword-duels were in progress. On the whole Iyeyasu's meiv were getting the worst of it. lyeyasu, himself hel metless, had performed prodigies of valour, but at twelve o'clock he re alised that the moment had come to do or die. It was at that mo ment he commanded his conchblow ers to blow the final call for all his reserves, and those who on pawing, stamping horses or with mouths wat ering for battle had been waiting, leaped to the call. Just then a sec tion of the mi...
HARNESSING A MOUNTAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
HARNESSING A MOUNTAIN. 'How to stop a mountain mov ing. This is the nice little problem which civil engineers and scientists in the district of the cascades of the Columbia river are trying in vain to solve.' says one of them. 'There, a mountain of basalt more than eight miles long and two thousand feet high is slowly sliding into the river, and unless it meets with some natural obstacle it will in time fill the river bed and form a dam by which an immense body of water will be held back and form a great lake. The question is : How is the channel to be kept open? As many years must still elapse before navi gation is seriously interfered with, there is ample time for any budding and ambitious engineer to invent a practical scheme for bridling a mountain.
THE CAUSES OF SEA SWELLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
THE CAUSES OF SEA SWELLS. Readers of old records of explo ration in the South Seas will recaJ' frequent references to the heavy swel's. of the ocean,- which impress ed the navigators with the idea of their remoteness from land. Dr. Vaughan Cornish explains the great size of the sea waves in high southern latitudes by the fact that south of the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Horn there is neither windward nor leeward shore, and the prevailing wind in all longi tudes is westerly. Thus when a west wind springs up it finds a long westerly swell, th'ev effect' of a previ ous wind still running. The new born wind increases the steepness of this swell, and so forms majestic storm waves which sometimes at tain a length of 1200 feet from crest to crest. The average height at tained by sea-waves in feet is about half the velocity of the wind in miles per hour.
ALUMINIUM KITCHEN UTENSILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
ALUMINIUM KITCHEN UTEN SILS. As aluminium is extensively em ployed in the manufacture of kit chen utensils it is important to know how it is affected by the foods which are brought into contact with it. For this purpose Fillineer boil ed ajuminium toil in fresh milk, sour milk, wine, mineral waters, and ten per cent, solutions of vari ous salts. The aluminium foil was weighed before and after the boil ing, which was continued for half an hour. No appreciable loss of weight was produced by boiling in sweet milk, white or red wine, or solutions of sodium chloride, potas sium iodide, sodium nitrate, potas sium sulphate, and calcium nitrate, and only a very small loss was caus ed by sour milk. The aluminium was strongly attacked, however, by sodium bicarbonate, magnesium' sulphate/ calcium sulphate, and mineral waters.
