Chickens Hatched by Bees [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 18 September 1914

Chickens Hatched by Bees Rearing ' chicks by electricity seems -a tall ordor, yet this is what is being dono at a chick farm at Muskogee, Oklahoma, where Iho wclfaro of tho occupant from the egg is electrified nnd the growth I of tho young birds forced by tho | aid of electric light. A tungsten lamp is about sixty watts is hung | in tho runway, and is switched on ' and oft alternately for eight hours ench. When the light is on tho chick fills its crop, and rests after tho light is turned off. Tho ca pacity of tho incubator is for eigh teen to twenty trays, one under tho other ; thus upwards of 5,000 eggs fill a sinjlo chamber. The trays nro so arranged that a blast cf warm sir circulates through tho rowe ot eggs. Some: of the farms installed by tho apparatus can hatch 10,000 chicks every day in the year, and in a sin gle season fts many as 20,000,000 lively chickB have been hatched and shipped abroad.

HOW TO GET RID OF STUMPS. f EFFECT OF FOWEIIFUL, AOJPS., A farmer has hit upon an effec tive method of getting rid of stumps with the aid of a mixture^ of sulphuric acid and nitric acid. Tn treating u stump 'Mt. Gin. in diameter Gd. worth of acids wore put in an augur hole, und in five weeks' time the whole stump and roots had so rotted that they could bo knocked to pieces with a hoc. A stump ttfl. in diameter wotild'take* about half a pint each of the acids and a smaller stump less. The acids ore used in equal quantities, nnd are not diluted »n any way.

Gems that Change Colour. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 18 September 1914

Gems that Change Colour. The newest fashionable gem is one that has the somewhat startling peculiarity of being a quito dif ferent colour in the evening from its daytime hue. In daylight it is a brilliant golden yellow. At night, under artificial light, it is a bright emerald green. Its name is the heliodore, and it is a brand-new discovery, the first specimen of it having only been | found quite recently. ) Jt .comes from .German South-West Africa, and the ! boom "of it comesfrom Berlin,1 where the Kaiser has made it a fad{ in Court circles. The Kaiser al ways wears the first-known specimen in a ring. All Hatton-garden is keenly interested in the new gem. The only other quick-change gem is the alexandrite, . so rare a stone that a good specimen runs dearor than diamonds. An alexandrite is a glowing raspberry red. It is found in Kussia, and got its name from the fact that the first speci men turned up the day the Czar reached liis twenty-first birthday. There was a boom in the stone...

A Deadly Industry Made Perfectly Safe. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 18 September 1914

A Deadly Industry Made Perfectly Safe. i I It seems extraordinary that pri mitive methods of obtaining the | necessary combustion /or getting fire or light should have prevailed down to the beginnings of the last century. Yet such was the case. It was not un*il the thirties of the nineteenth ccntury that a young f Austrian mechanic, Johann Jriny, invonted tho lucifer match. It is true that sulphur matches had been in use for some little time before this, but these were very crude affairs, and as such very unreliable. Jriny came along and added a little phosphorus to the sulphur that tipped , the small slips of wood and there sprang into existence the lucifer match.. Truly one of tho great events of civilisation ! This kind of match held its own for many a long day, hut it had Homo very detrimental properties besides tho extremely useful one of a fire producer, and so it had to go in the end. It is well known that phosphorus is remarkably combustible. A light, rub on practically any ...

In the Wild West. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 18 September 1914

In the Wild West. In the days when the . West was really "wild" nnd "woolly," good doctors wore scarcer than women out in the mining; enmps. Sometimes a man who had failed at prospecting would act up an "oillco" in a shack and bccomo a "lawyer," or "dentist," or " doc tor." There is a young physician in Chicago whose father was one of tho feu< competent physicians in a wide stretch of country; it was not unusual . for him to ride fifty or a hundred miles to visit a pa tient. He once got the following extraordinary letter from one of tho mining failures who had set up as a "doctor" : "Dear Dock I havo a pashunt whoso trubblen I dirgnose as havin' his windpipe ulserated off and his lungs dropped down in his stum-* tnik.

It wasn't more than eight o'clock, and there we've been the livelong day.". "Will you let me take the paper to the inspector 7" he asked. "No, sir. I promised the mistress I'd follow the directions, and they say I'm to take it, and tako it I shall," she said, decidedly. "Very well, then, I'll go with you. T suppose you'll take charge of the house until she returns ?" he said, looking at Eliza. "Not if I know it. Do you think I am going to be left _alono with a I corpse, and a corpse that hasn't died a natural death 7" replied Eliza. "You just come along; with mo," said Phoebe. In. a few, mfnutes the two were ready.to start, and, assisted by Mr. Short, they got through the break fast room window, which they shut after them. At the gate the two servants look ed aghast.

A SHRINKING SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 18 September 1914

A SHRINKING SEA. The surfaco of the Caspian, which, lies 88ft. below sen level, has, since' Juno, 1910, been continually sink- j ing, without .a plausible explnnu-1 tion having hitherto been found. I No great importance was at first! attached to the phenomenon, but the^ shrinkage wont on, and is now oven .beginning to be inconvenient for navigation, as steamers in many places cannot reach the landing stages. It is believed that the river wnter flowing into the sea is not suffi cient to make good the loss caused by evaporation. The State Militia, acting upon * the orders of the Governor to stop gambling on the Tulsa Racecourse,' recently fired a volley over the heads of tho riders as they came down tho straight. None of tho riders were injured, but tho race was bro-1 ken up. The adjutant-general said that if another raco was run he would order the soldiers to shoot! down the horses. j

CHAPTER XXVI. THE DAWN OF HAPPINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 18 September 1914

CHAPTER XXVI. THE DAWN OF HAPPINESS. "Laurie, I had a very queer dream last night about your father," said Sir Leonard Hatton to his nephew. They were at the breakfast-tablo, and the butler, having attended to their wants, had retired, as Sir Leo nard preferred the morning meal to be informal. It was the time when ho was least reserved, but it was not often that he spoke of the brother with whom he had quarrelled many years ago, and Laurie looked at him in surprise. "What did you dream ?" he asked. For a moment hiB uncle did not re ply, then he said : "I dreamed that your father came into the room and said : 'It's time Laurie had those diamonds. They are worth a fortune/ " 'Where are thej ?' I asked ; and he replied : "" " 'Let him have his own way, and he'll get them.' Then I awoke, but the impression left upon me was so vivid that I could have imagined your father had really been speak ing to me." "Do you think- it possible he is living?" asked Laurie. "No. I heard many years ago ...

A Dominie to the Japs. MR. A. LOTON KITIGER, F.R.C.S., GIVES HIS EXPERIENCES. "What is that biff building over there?" I asked my companion, as *vt5 walked down the Ginza in To kio. "No !" ho replied, with a sagacious nod. "What-is-that-big -building-over-there ?" I repeat ed, with painstaking simplicity. "Indeed !" was the answer. With patience only born from long ex perience, I repeated my question for the third time. "So ?" this time was the response. I thereupon gave it up. And this pupil was one in a uni versity class to which I was en gaged in teaching English, and was compelled by the curriculum to teach from de Quincey's "J-ectures of War." Was it to be wondered at that I surreptitiously substituted something lighter ? Incidentally, I nearly got tho sack for my pains ! Japan is education mad-and, worse still, system mad. All the teachers-or "professors," as we are called-tcach on some system. I horrified tho president of one institution by replying to his query as to what sy...

The First Cigars. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 18 September 1914

The First Cigars. Tho cigar is now so common an object that we hardly realise how recently it came into use. A letter of Robert Bloomfield, the author of "The Farmer's Boy," datod May 21, 1803, gives us what is probably the approximate date of its introduc tion. "I spent two hours yesterday," writes the shoemaker poet, "in tho big house at the corner of Clarges street, in company of tho Puke. His Grace gave me three scgars, one of which I then smoaked, carrying the others away in my pocket. His Grace tells me this style of smoak ing is much in favour wit h French men and Spaniords, and that it is the great cost of segars that stands in tho way of their use here. X do not account three segars with a pipeful of good, honest tobacco/' The cigarette came in much later. In the early sixties, cigarettes were only smoked (in England) by for eigners or Brit.ons who had acquir ed the habit while residing abroad. The first English cigarettes were stained brown, to imitate the to bacco-leaf, a...

AN EPOCK-MAKrNG BOOK. "Undo Tom's Cabin" was publish' e<i on March 20, 1852. The author Mrs. Beecher Stowe, was despond ent as to "whether anybody would 'read or attend to her appeal" on behalf of the enslaved negroes of the States. She was agreeably dis - appointed both in a moral and fi-. . oancial sense, . for. 10,000 copies :sold in a few* days, and over 300, . 000 within a twelvomonth. Running night and day, the { riot ing presses could barely meet tho demand. It was not only read, but remembered and pondered over. Tho pity, the distress, the indigna tion long pont up in tho writer's soul passed from her into the mil lions of readers of tho book. Tho. nation's conscionce was awakened. John Brown was the first, but by no means tho least, American to lay down his lifo for the cause of tho negro freedom. A mighty civil war shook the Union to its very foun dations ; but tho United States sur vived the fiery ordeal intact, nnd fin ally took her place among the clvl Hsod n...

The \ oynge really commenced from Now York, but tho vessel consted round to Savannah as a preliminary trial trip. « Op May 23, 1SJ9, tho Savannah set out on her daring venturo. Tho following month the columns of tho "Georgian" had a very curious para graph to the efloct that a schooner had arrived at Newbury Port, tho commander stating that on May 20 he had sighted a vessel from which volumes of smoke were issu ing. Judging it to be a vessel on fire, they bore up to render aid, but soon found she went faster with fire and smoke than the schooner with all her sails set.
