People's Liberal Party AN EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 19 June 1914
People's Liberal Party AN EXPLANATION. We wish to explain an error on our part in last last week's issue of the "Leader." By an oversight we head- ed the report of a meeting of the above party "A.W.U. provides for preference to negroes." but did not publish the article read by the secre- tary of the branch. The article referred to is in refer- ence to rule 5 of the constitution of the Australian Workers Union, which says, amongst other things: "But no shearing contractor, group or other- wise, and no Chinese, Japanese, Kan- akas or Afghans, or coloured aliens other than Maories, American negoes or issue of mixed parentage born in Australasia, shall be admitted to mem- bership." If the A.W.U. is ever granted pre- ference to unionists by the Arbitration Court, Maories, negroes, etc., would, as memnbers, have preference in em- ployment over white Australian non- unionists.
Method of Joining Boards. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
Method of Joining Boards. The amateur wood-worker often has trouble in joining two boards together so thati. they will fit square and tight. The accompa:ying sketch sho\wsasimpl]c and effective method of doing tiis. Secure a board, A.i about 12in. wide that is perfectly flat. Fasten another board, B. about, Gin. wide, to the first one with screws or glue. Now,,Ilace the board to be joined, C, on the board 13, letting it extend over the inside edge about lin. and fasten ing it to the others with clamps at each end. Lay the plane on its side and plane the edge straight. Place the second board in the clamps in the same manner as the first, only have the opposite side up. If the cutting edge of the blade is not vertical, the boards planed in this mannurer will fit as shown in the upper sketch. In us ing this method first-clars joints can be made without miuch trouble.
A Temporary Funnel. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
A Temporary Funnel. -A. The amateur photographer often has some solution which he desires to put into a bottle which his glass funnel will not fit, says the "Photographic Times." The funnel made by rolling up a piece of paper usually allows half of the solution to run down the outside of the bottle, thereby causing the ama teur to be dubbed a "mnusser." A better way is to take an ordinary envelope and cut it off as shown by the dotted lines. Then clip a little off the point, open out, and you have a funnel that will not give any trouble. It is cheap and you can afford to throw it away when dirty, thereby saving time and washing.
Did Ancient Greeks Dance The Cakewalk? [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
Did Ancient Greeks Dance The Cakewalk ? Can we, in these modern days. claim originality for anything ? It seemls lnot, for even our "cake walk," which most people think was invented in recent years, is noow proved to have. been familiar to the ancients. In the British Museum can be seen a Greek statuctto of a lady who lived 2400 years ago in an attitude which seems strangely familiar. "I enjoyed your sermon this morn ing very much," said Mark Twain to a clergyman of his acquaintanlce. "I welcomed it like an old friend. I have, you know, a book at home containing every word of it." "You have niot," said the prea cher. "I have, indeed," returned the humourist. "Well, send that book to me. I'd like to see it." "You shall," Mark Twain replied. And he sent the next morning an unabridged dictionary to the minis ter. A man rang the hell at Willie ]3udd's house one day, and Willie, agedl eight, ansaered it. " Is Mr. Budd in ?" said the man. "I'm Mr. Buldd," said Willie, "or do you want to s...
Oil and Wool from Pine Needles. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
Oil and Wool from Pine Needles. Pine-needle oil is a product de rived from the leaves of our pines (says the "Scientific American"). it has been extracted for a great many years and is w\ell kno~n the world over as a remedial agent against rheumatism and allied cota ilaints. It is a volatile, colourless liquid olbtained by distillation of fresh needles, young twigs, and one year-old cones of our western and southern yellow pines. In order to produce oil of the best quality, fresh green needles must be collect ed during the spring of the year, probably in the beginning of June. Pine-needle pickers go from tree to tree and select the young, thrifty green leaves at the ends of twigs, which yield about 0.55 per cent. of volatile oil. Those of old trees, which are dlry and tough, produce much less and of Inuch poorer qual ity. A ntiiber of years ago this oil was supplied by a number of small stills or ordinary pharmaceutical distil leries. The still itself is a very simply constructed ap...
A Monster of the Deep. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
A Monster of the Deep. The most formidable and repulsive creature of the submarine world is the giant octopus, comnionly known as the spider-crab. It is master of the scaled and finned things that liie in the ocean's depths. It is alike hideous in appearance and habits, and more than one daring coral hunter and pearl-diver has found death in its terrible arms. The spider-crab flourishes and at tains its greatest size in the warm waters of the Japan seas. An adequate idea of the hideousness of the creature's appearance can only be formed by those who have come across the monster in its lair. Its sh;ial'e bears a strong resemblance to the familiar spinning insect. The long legs, which often exceed forty feet in length, are thickly covered with coarse black hair. The body, often fifteen. feet in cir cumference, is also covered with hair, in which barnacles and tiny shellfish make their home. When attacked, the spider-crab exudes an overpowering odour, which permea tes the water around ...
TRAGEDY WHICH INSPIRED POE. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
TRACEDY WHICH INSPIiEIT POE. John Anderson, a tobacconist of N'ew York, was regarded as a shreewd business man, and sholwedl his: reputation was not undeserved when he engaged pretty Mary Iogers as manageress of his cigar-shop under the iashionable St. Nicholas Hotel, in Biroad way. An ordinary Havana here cost half a cro0 n, and if Mary bit the end off she charged a shilling extra, and as a result of this latter fact all the gilded youths of the city were her cust omers. Previously Mary had been a poor girl. Now she might have acquired nmanny a fortune; but she knew how far to go, for honour was dearer to her than all else. But one day, March' 11, 1S70, Mary i&lt; gers's dead body was found lloat i.g in the Htudson River. ;he had been strangled Iby a hootla :e, w!ich was tied tightly round her throat. Public excitement and indignation knew no bounds. A public sub scription of £2,000 was raised and orfiered as a reward for the deten tion of the guilty party'. Suspicion fell ...

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. TRIAL OF THE DORSETSHIRE LABORERS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. TRIAL 01" THE DORSETSHIRE LABORERS. The first important epoch in the history of modern British labour politics was the formation, in 1834,. of the Grand National Consolidated Trades Union, a really important association, numbering as it did half a millioa adherents, who represented every branch of labour, including agriculture. Even women's unions were aftliliated. The tremendous possibilities of such a united b'dy of workers naturally aroused the attention of the governing classes, and a prosecution was instituted for "unlawful conspiracy," of whichl the most salient incident is that of the Dorchester labourers. At this period, when the average wage of the English farmhand was 10s. a week, the Dorset laborers re ceived 7s. Htalf a dozen of such men, Methodists and local preachers, started a "Grand Lodge of the Na tional Friendly Society of Agrt cultural Labourers" at Tolpuddle (Dorsetshire). Some farmers insti tuted a prosecution for "conspi-. racy." The f...

A Notorious Outlaw. ---+----- On cebruary 2r3, L895, a cable gram froinl America stated that Billy tlhe:IKid had! ,con shot 1by Pat Garrett. Billy the Kid, ostensibly a cowboy, was in reality an armed guard and paid murderer. The "range war" in New? Mexico was at its hlight. The men who owned cattle and those who owned sheepi were at deadly feud with one,anotlher and it was a question whether cattle or shreep should occupy the ranlgies. I:;lly hire . himnself to t!e cattle owners, and stalked shepherds as men stalk game. lis aim was deadly ; his cunllning almost super 1human. Whenll the "''range war"' was ended 1by the military authorities, Hilly turned bandit; and gathering ro:n:d him a gang of desperadoes, robbed lonely ranches anld murdered their inmates, until his name became a terror and a bywortd. At last even the "\Wild West" got its "dunder" up, and decidied that Billy the Kid was to be hunted down. They said that Pat IAarrett, sherit, or chief constable, was the man to do i...

Rare British Moth. ENTOMOLOGISTS AND THE THOMPSONI. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
Rare British Moth. ENTOMOLOGISTS AND THE THOMPSONI. This moth, which is a. striking examp!le --of the curious colour variation common among insects, 1 irds, and nninmals, is a special ob ject of interest to entomnlogists, in view of the recent discovery of a new and third variety by Mr'. J. Thompson, a Chester entomologist. 'T'his form of the insect appears at present to be confined to Dela mere Forest, Cheshire, and is very rare. It is named Thompsoni, after its discoverer, and is black, with a conspicuous white border to its wings. In its secondl variety the moth exhibits the first culminating stage of variation, and is black, with grey wing fringes, a change to a darker hue from the conlmnon or ordinary type. The second variety, &lt;f which we al so give an illustration, is named 1ohsoni, of Ilartlepool. Neither of these varieties, however, is Lan abrupt transition, for hetween the typical insect andl each of them are var ious intermediate forms. From 1HE THOMPSONI, THE I...
