MOHAMMED'S FOLLOWERS [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914

MOHAMMED'S FOLLOWERS The recent conversion of an English peer to Mohammedanism is a remin der that the Mohammedans in this counti-y are sufficiently numerous and influential to support several places of worship (says the "Westminster Gaz ette"). Three mosques are in existence in England. Those at Liverpool and Woking have long been noted for their exquisite appointments. Of more recent date is the one situ ated in Bayswater. The doors are gilded in a similar way to those of the world-famous Taj Mahal at Agra, built by Shah-Jehan. In the East End there is a sacred temple of A1 Ahmed, where the faithful meet once a ye«^ to go through a curious ceremony in houor of the Prophet.

SAWMILL ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914

SAWMILL ACCIDENT. On Friday afternoon last, whilst working at Knott's sawmill, near Mount Baw Baw, Mr J. P. Oliver (Harris) met with a serious accident. It appears that the unfortunate man was clinging to a moving truck, load ed with timber, wben—in manipu lating a brake—he lost his bold. In falling, his Jeffc leg crossed the line, and the first of the two bogey wheels rose and rested upon the ankle. The horses moved on, causing the brake, which is located between the wheels, to draw the leg in. Subsequently, the second wheel passed over the leg, which was crushed very badly from the ankle upwards. Assistance was obtained, and fifteen men, in turn, carried the sufferer to Walhalla on a stretcher. The journey occupied over five hours, and the unfortunate man suffered in tense agony. He was admitted to the hospital, and attended to by Dr Crooke. On Monday morning, Mr Oliver was taken to Sale for treatment. Tt is very probable that the leg, which was fractured in four places, will have...

THE HATCHING OF CROCODILES. An audible croaking cry is uttered by young unhatched crocodiles when they are within the eggs in -which they are laid, and the cry is so loud and dis tinct that it can be heard when the eggs are buried in sand. Doctor W. A Lamborn has recently tested the fact at Lagos. He heard a croaking noise from below a dry path, and, digging m the path to investigate the cause, he discovered thirteen crocodiles' eggs at i a depth of about egliteen nclies. All the young crocodles lmtclied out after j being dug up.

A REMARKABLE BIRD COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914

A REMARKABLE BIRD COLONY. The most remarkable bird colony in the world is on Hat Island, in the Great Salt Lake, Utah The island is about twelve acres in extent, and on a rocky pinnacle a hundred feet above the brine, -with not a drop of fresh water to be found, and where there is nothing to excite the cupidity or_ com mercial instinct of man, the birds — gulls, pelicans, herons, and cormorants bw the thousand—make their home. The island can be seen at a distance of ten miles, rising like a "cocked hat" out of the sapphire of the inland sea. The birds are utterly fearless. Pro tected as they are by the laws of the State, they have had little _ cause to fear man and his death-dealing weap ons. It is necessary to use the greatest care to avoid stepping on the nests and eggs of the tens of thousands of sea fowl that have established their rook eries on the islet.

THE HORSE POINTS FOB JUDGES EXPERT ADVICE. . At the ICybybolite Branch of: the South Australian Asriculture Bureau Mr W J. Colebatch, B.Sc., Agric,. MR CVS. (Superintendent of Agricul ture' in the South-East) gave a Prac tical demonstration on the points of a horse. Most farmers, he said, possess a fair knowledge of the general charac teristics to he looked for in a horse> of good quality,but few would care to un dertake the responsibilities of show-ring judging, or to officiate in any capacity in which their knowledge of the points of a l.orse would be brought undar .he searchlight of public criticism. This may be due to natural reluctance to, publicity or to a want of confidence, which may be attributed in some cases to a want of method or system in .ne process of judging. No matter wha. the circumstances may be—whether tne examination be made in the show Ting or sale yard, the aim should be to adopt some definite and thorough system o£ working. Once adopted, the method should,...
