Local and General News. A Matter for Inquiry. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

Local and General News. ; A Matter for Inquiry. Of all the parcels of goods that have been prepared and forwarded to Melbourne by the Benalla Red Cross League—aud this noble band of ladies have despatched cart-loads —not a single acknowledgement lias been made in the city press. Al most every other place receives that just recognition that is denied Benalla. Enquiries have been made from the Red Cross headquarters, but nothing satisfactory has been received. 'J here is something very strange about this sort of thing, and demands a thorough inves tigation. The ladies do not desire any thanks, but they have a perfect right to know just how the parcels regularly sent are being dealt with. Matters in Abeyance The Mechanics Institute held an adjourned meeting 0:1 Monday evening, when, among oilier things, the hon. secretary (Mr. J II. Tone) 1 handed in his resignation. This, i with the question of changing the j night Jof meeliug, was 'held over until the general meeting, which will be h...

Water Conservation. THE LABOR PARTY'S ATTITUDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

Wafer Conservation. THE LABOR PARTY'S ATTI TUDE. " The -following is an extract from Mr. Rlmslie's policy speech delivered in South Melbourne on Thursday evening, 1st October;— Irrigation aud Water Conservation. —It has been proved to us that the State can effectually and success fully conceive and carry. out works for water conservation, but while that is so, it has been contended in some quarters that the head works for water storage should be treated as national works. There is a good deal to be said iu favor of such -a contention, but to make it a general rule would certainly not be fair to the taxpayers. I thiuk, however, that it would be equally unfair to 'fix it as a hard and fast rule that no headworks should be constructed at the expense of the State solely. The better way would be to con sider each scheme on its merits, and that every_ scheme of water conser vation should be submitted to a committee, similar to that which examines and reports on all railway construction pr...

WHOROULY. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

WHOROULY. A collision between a motor aud a gig occurred near Whorouly, aud as a result Nurse Emily Walpole sus tained serious injuries to tbe bead and face. Her nose was broken. Dr. Sutton performed an operation and extracted a piece of bone from the nose. This year there will be scarcely any tobacco grown at Whorouly, as there has been a general failure of young plants owiug to the drought conditions. There has not been sufficient moisture in the ground to keep them alive until they rooted. Mr. G. Kueebone has sufficent plants to put in about half an acre while Mr. A, Kueebone, who has grown tobacco for the last twelve years, Mr. J. E. Kneebone, Mr, L,. Rae and others will not plant out any this year. It is estimated that there will not be more than about 2 or 3 acres in all cultivated this season. I«ast year an area of over 30 acres was planted, aud a fair crop was taken off. Some of the growers have just sold part of last season's crop at „8d per lb,

(ilJi RIGHTS RESERVED.) ?UNDERTHE BAN #0F THE CZAR,« OR, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. * tj St. George Rathborno, Autbor oi "Omar Kaasam," etc. SYNOPSIS OF PREVIOUS PARTS. Owen Dugdale, the wealthy owner of an estate In Leinster ; an artist, journalist, and idler, and an impul sive Irishman, has mapped out for himself a month's journey in South ern Russia. His passport, through a blunder on the part of the officials, calls for Owen Dugdale and wife, a luxury he has never possessed. Naturally this leads to strange and ridiculous complications as in Bohe mian fashion he wanders over the plains and mountains of Russia. Evening is setting in as his telega driven by Vladimir, a Don Cossaok, who fears neither man nor devil, ap proaches the town of Rustchuk. Shortlj after passing a mounted mili tary, officer and two Cossacks, our traveller discovers a wrecked telega in his path, On investigation Owen is startled by the discovery that the luckless vehicle is occupied by a lady and he becomes consc...

The Non-Advertiser. Breathes there a Man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said: "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If such there be, go mark him well, ?or him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose, Onsought by men except he owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep. That naughtmay break his dreamlesB sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the world may know Its loss, Place on his grave a wreath of moss; And on a stone above, "Here lies A chump who wouldn't advertise.'1

CHAPTER XVII. AT THE GATES OF RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

Chapter xvii. AT THE GATES OF RUSSIA. It was not a part of Dugdale's plan to let Isolde read his {ears up on his face. For her sake, then, he assumed a satisfied appearance which wholly he lied the alarm which raged within his heart, now that the crisis was close at hand, when their fortunes must be decided. It had become a serious matter with our friend, whether success or failure resulted from their efforts to slip across the border by means of an incorrect passport. His own personal liberty was at stake, but this was not what wor ried him most. He did not want that ogre of a baron, representing the al most omnipotent power of the Czar, to overtake this fair fugitive ; for it seemed to him that in the event of j this happening disaster must over-] whelm not only Isolde's hopes, but j also the delightful chateaux d'Es- j pagne he had of late been so indus triously rearing. His wife in name ! Well, the thought was so pleasant that our bachelor was wishing in his secret soul some pow...

PART 6. CHAPTER XVI. IN SIGHT OF THE PROMISED LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

PART 6. CHAPTER XVI. IN SIGHT OP THE PROMISED LAND. The horses had shown more or less terror when the earth trembled, but they were so tired it did not ta'ie much to quiet them. Besides, Vladimir was cn hand to exercise his soothing influence over the beasts. "To your scat, master," he said. The pursuers must be very close at hand, and it would be dangerous to tarry. Again progress was resumed, and the scene of the barrier left behind. Dugdale breathed easier. Surely so long as they had Vladimir with them they bad little reason to be worried ; his ingenuity could accom plish that which the lack of speed in their horses failed to gain, and Gene ral Gratschef! would find a foeman worthy of his metal in the Don Cos sack. Then came the roar of anger and the maledictions that announced the arrival of the horsemen at the scene of the late avalanche. It must have been music to Vladi mir's heart. Doubtless his back,where the cruel lash had oncc been laid, and which burned ever since, felt e...

Deadly French. When Mark Twain was a young re porter in San Francisco ho made up his mind to learn the Frcnch language. He did not want to go to the expense of a teacher ; and so ho bought a gruinmer and conversa tion book, and sot to work. XJo fore breakfast he poured over the lessons; late in the evening he was at it again; and every available mo ment of the day he employed with equal assiduity. lie soon began to look about for opportunities to make use of his new ' accomplishment, t Accordingly l'e began to eat at a French res taurant once a week. One day, as he and his room mate were coming* out of the res taurant, they found on the sidewalk just outside the door a French man. He was asking first one passer-by and then another the way to a certain street, but no one understood him. That was Mark's chance. The Frenchman looked at him with wistful eyes, and began to talk." Mark -listened attentively. Three or four times the stranger was compelled to repeat his question then Mark s...

HANSONVILLE [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

H ANSON VILLF, Some people place confidence iu the divining rod in locating water. 1 local resident has proved, beyond 'doubt, that by means of it- water can be found in certain places. As there is a great scarcity of water at the present time in this district as well as others, the services of this gentleman have been called upon by the local farmers to use the power he possesses in finding out where there's water underground by means of the divining rod. Success has j crowned his efforts before and it is to be hoped that he will be sucess-1 ful again. Haymaking operations are ge le ral through the district. Some of the crops are turning out fairly well considering the dry season that we are experiencing, while others will hardly pay expenses for cutting, although stock will readily eat the : hay, which no doubt will be accept able before long. In some instances farmers are turning their stock into the crop paddocks on account of not being able to reap the crops owing to their shor...

Cork Kept Away from Opening. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

Cork Kept Away from Opening. I When trying to extract a cork without the aid of a corkscrew it often happens thnt the cork is for ced into the bottle. The result is that every time the bottle is in verted the cork is drawn- into the neck of the bottle and stops the liquid from running out. To pre vent this, bend a piece of spring |wire into the shapes shown, and insert' it in the bottle neck. The wire form should be long enough to extend slightly into tlio bottle.' When the bottlo is inverted the cork will, according to Air. .J. J. Kolar, the inventor of the device, bo kept hack from the neck and there will always bo an opening, re gardless of the position taken by tho cork. Of .course, this cannot be used in bottles containing corrosive liquids or acids.

Preventing Collisions at Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

Preventing Collisions at Sea. The collision disaster in the St. Lawrence Has raised interest again in Sir Hiram S. Maxim's inven tion, explained at the time of the Titanic alTair. It is well known that ' bats can avoid, in the dark, even suspended silk-threads, and can find their way, in full flight, amid the intricacies of caves absolutely dark. Sir Iliram suys they manage this by a special sense. A bat is provided With a "receiving apparatus" on the face, which registers, practically instantly, the echoes of the vibrations set up by the rapid movement of its wings, and gives it accurate knowledge of the place, distance, and size of obstructions. Sounds that are below human hearing, such as those set up by the movements of a bat's wings, still can travel 'to a great distance, and can be received again us echoes, with suitable apparatus. Sir Hiram has designed an ap paratus whicli can send out sounds below human hearing, and which enn register the return waves of such sounds from ob...

And yet there is not a skin to he seen ! Visitors merely see a hundred or so men—Germnns, French, Americans,'Russians, with a sprinkling of the Asiatic races—nil more ■ or less prosperous-looking, seuted at tiers of Ion? desks like schoolboys, each with a catalogue of the sale before him. There is no noise, no confusion, just the quiet announcements of the auc tioneer, who calls out tho various items for sale.

10 Yards of Silk FOR HALF-A-CROWN. POSTAL NOTES RETURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

10 Yards of Silk u for hai^f-a-crown;. postal notes return. When Sydney police raided the premises of the much-advertised Ceylon Silk Company a large num ber of postal notes in envelopes were seized. Most of these notes were of the value of 2s 6d, and many of the Victorian senders are now receiving their notes again, less 3d charged for exchange. The extent of the business done in Victoria alone by the Silk Selling Company was extraordinary,! and may be gauged when it is stated that the postal notes sent back for return to people who bad forwarded them to Sydney represent a total value of 130. Cons. Bruce was busily engaged a few days ago in looking up about thirty local cases where the modest half-dollar had been forwarded to Sydney for " silk bargains." The episode has its distinctly laughable as Well as a serious side.

Animal's Self-curative Instincts. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 13 November 1914

Animal's Self-curative Instinct?. It is well known that animals pos bkss strong self-curative inslincts. Dogs and cats when indisposed will eat grasses that have a medicinal action usually of an emetic or pur gali.e nature. The fibrous-rooted wheat-grass, Triticum caninum, is frequently eaten by the former. If on .animal lins been injured -it is noticed continually to lick the affected part, which, says Dr. T. Wilson Parry, in some admirable notes on thc> subject, is a somewhat crude combination of our modern fomentation and massage. Prehis toric man would most certainly have licked his wounds. Later, when he had lost some of his earliest animal instincts, lie would observe what animals did and imitate them. Thus the ,usc of hellebore was believed to have been discovered from the goat. Virgil tells us that dittany was "eaten by wild goats when they were shot with darts." Pliny tells us that bleeding was taught man by the hippopotamus, " that intelligent animal finding himself ple...
