Pen Picture of the Past. LOSS OF THE ROYAL GEORGE. HOW COWTEU TOOK THE TRA GEDY. Cowper's fine verses on "The Loss of the Royal George" are tolerably well known, but everyone is not so familiar with the story of their origin. Towards the dose of Cowper's life his mind—as most readers are a ware—living' at times on the brink of insanity, and at the lime now referred to his affliction was prac tically, at its height. The morning of the day on which this incident took place was dreary, cold, and dull. A chilling mist which filled the nil" was succeeded by a driz I zling rain, making all nature cheer less. Deeply miserable, aa usual, j Cowper was hastily pacing his room backwards and forwards in a stato of extreme agitation and distress, tiie darknessf and gloominess with out augmenting the deeper dark ness within him. lie was humming j to himself the nir of .JTamlcl'a "March in Reipio," his slops keep ing time <o tho music, his thoughts busy brooding: over his own utter wret...

THE FARM. SULPHATE OF IRON AS A MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 January 1914

THE FARM. 4 SULPHATE OF IKON AS A MANURE. , In view of the fact, as so far proved, that top-ilrwsings of sul phate of iron were found useful in checking the "Bush disease" to which cattle and sheep, running in certain districts arc subject, it is interest ing to examine the opinions of well known agricultural authorities anil note the wide diversity of opinions expressed ,on the use of this iron salt in practical farming. That iron sul phate vastly improves the colour of grass is well known to those who have used it for getting rid of wrods on lawns. When the sulphate is (irsr, applied to the lawn, it is inclined to turn the leaves of the grass blues'., but after a shower or two of rain the grass rapidly recovers, and the leaves take on a rich dark-green colour. All authorities admit that the chloro phyll or green colouring matter in plants cannot be lonne<\ without the presence of iron. For instance, A. L\ Hall, Director of the Rothamsteatf Experiment.

AIDS TO COLOUR IN FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 January 1914

AIDS TO COLOUR IN FRUIT. Mr. G. P. Berry considers that al- j though eminent authorities j state j there is always much more iron in I the soil than is necessary for the j colouring of fruits, there are certain ] districts and certain soils where col- j ouring is very marked. . j At the Carlisle Fruit Congress he instanced the preat variation of Col- j ouring found in the East of Scot- j land, from Berwick to Kincardine. He always added four stones per acre of sulphate of iron when preparing for fruit planting, and in nine plan tations under his care, in different! counties, lie found that m the sec-, tions fertilised with potash there was earlier maturity and finer colour j than in the case of the phosphate and nitrogen plots. I lie advocated the application of ljcwt.'of sulphate of potash per acre ! as a srood average dressing to secure ' {rood colour in fruits. -"Gardener's Magazine." Mr. J.

Australian Aborigines. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 January 1914

Australian Aborigines. + The Australian Aborigines (says Bishop Frodsham in "The Cornhill Magazine) have considerable dra matic instinct, and their dances arc extremely interesting and var ied. One favourite dance, probab ly connected with a basic princi- • pie of life, is wearisome l.evond measure to the white eye, but this ■ is not the case with corroborees il- * lustrative of life in the bush. One .such dance, I have seen, por trayed a turtle hunt—in which the turtle lifting its head above the water seemed possessed with, the spirit of elusive humour. In an other favourite dance the young' men of the tribe mimicked a tribe ' dingoes quarrelling over the imagi nary carcase of a kangaroo.. This dance, X remember, once'endod iii peals of laughter, as two of the naked pla3rers, fighting like angry dogs over a mil bone, rolled to gether into the burning wood-ashes of the camp fire. ■ The last dramatic corroboree I saw was 'descriptive of three Chi nese squabbling together over a gun. ...

SCIENCE QUERIES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 January 1914

SCIENCE QUERIES. (By EDGAR LUCIE.NT LARKIN.) Q. —1 lake for granted that the earth is an enormous armature rotating in n. magnetic field. Wc know thnt Jicnt is |iro<lucc<J in n. solid armature by eddy currents. Would not these lie developed in the earth and generate neat, steam and cause volcanoes ? A.—The earth is a huge armaturo rotating at high speed in the sun's magnetic field. Masses of metal and metallic ores in the coi'th actually cut lines of magnetic force 'extend ing' from the sun, and this cannot be done without generating heat and electricity. Mathematics proves that the materials in a cut-out sphere "one thousand miles in dia meter, as the contral rogion of the earth, are far heavier than any rocks iri the surface layers. The equations deduced by Newcomb would all be satisfied if this cen tral globe is as dense as gold or platinum. Therefore, beyond any doubt huge masses of metal exist in the earth. Q.—I cannot see why the law of conservation of en...

BASUTOLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 30 January 1914

BASUTOLAND. i The greatest authority on the Ba- . sutos and Basutoland Is in London. This is M. Edouard Jacottet, of the Paris Evangelical Missionary Society, who has spent the past 30 years in Basutoland, and is now on furlough. The work of this society dates back to 1833, when Moshesh, the greatest of the Basuto chiefs, invited missionaries of Paris to settle in his country, and from that day until his death proved their firm friend. In conversation with a representative of " The llaily Chronicle" M. .Jacottet said that lo-day between one-fifth and one sixth of tho population was Chris tian, the total population being about -103,111 natives and l,o'J<> whites. It was Moshesh who weld I ed the various Bechuann. tribes in to n nation. The progress of tho [ Basutos is extraordinary, not the least striking- illustration of this being' the genuine nativo literature which is developing. M.
