HYPNOTIC CATS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 12 June 1914
HYPNOTIC CATS. Treading on a cobra sitting up ready to strike, a resident ill lndia, whose ex periences are related in the ''Field," wonderedl why the deadly fangs were delayed. Looking° round, hlie noticed his cat crouching and gazing at the reptile steadily with mesmeric effect, for the snake seemed unable to move, and while in this condition he killed it. Another tilme, when sleeping in an open cot in the verandah, hlie woke to find oil one side of the lied a huge cobra with head erect ready to strike; on the other the glistening green eyes of his cat. The snake remained quite still, so he ran into the room to fetch a gun, and, coming back, poked the repltile's head with the barrels; but it did not take the slightest notice, and seemned like a stuffed and lifeless crea ture. He then placed his hand in front of the cat's eyes by way of experiment, when immediately the spell was re:ov ed, the cobra raised itself, hissed, and assumed an off6nsive attitude. He then took his hand away...

FALL FROM A TRAIN. INJURED MAN LOCKED UP. Melbourne, Thursday. At the inquiry. concerning the death of Fredk.

He did not think anything could have been done for Bruce, who.was in a dying con dition immediately after the in jury. Dr. Johnston had evidently made an error in judgment.

ANIMAL TRAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 12 June 1914
ANIMAL TRAINING. - MIost people have heard of tile cele brated calculating horses of Elberfeld, who can do anything up to calculating square roots, in addition to being' pro fioient at spelling. It would now ap pear, according to the Paris press, that although these feats are actually per formed, they are due to a very clever device. An animal trainer has in formed the 'Matin' that he has utilised a system of wireless telegraphy for training animals to do all sorts of tricks. The receiver is placed in the ho:se's bridle, while the trainer or an assistant manipulates the transmitter, and by a code of signals, which are not difficult to teach, the animals ?can be made to give any desired "answer." It is suggested that this system is used in the case of the celebrated Elberfield horses. Prior to the utilisation of wire less telegraphy, the trainer mentioned employed a method of signals by, means of a tooth-pick.
RURALISMS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 12 June 1914
RURALISMS. To be a thorough ploughman is the real fodndation of all farming. Don't kill your ground and make clods by ploughing too early, or too wet. Keep the pear trees headed low. They will grow to towering poles unless you do. Watering the cows once a day with a hurried sip won't do. They need all they can get. You will never buy a farm with the money you fool awaLy every time you go to town. A seed on the ground is better than one in the eye. The first is propaga tron and the other irritation. Hiring a "tinker" carpenter rathei than to pay the wages of a first-class man is a waste of time and money, but with the proper tools any farmei should be ab!le to do many of the jot: himself. If things go on as they have for some time, and farmers continue send ing heifer calves to the butohers, dairy cows will ultimately become as precious as radium. To prevent a scabby crop of pota toes, soak the seed for two hours in a solution of one-half pint of formalin (formaldehyde) m fifteen gal...
HINTS ABOUT HORSE TRAINING [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 12 June 1914
HINTS ABOUT HORSE TRAINIING Many valuable animals are spoiled by improper or harsh treatment. A man who is incapable of understanding the disposition of the horse is certainly in capable of training him; for the horse is endowed by the Creator with rare inteligenc. Therefore, in his tender age, hlie should have good care and proper training by being used wijc kindness and good judgment; at the same time, he must be given to ubder stand that although frightened or ex cited, he is to obey. The lhorse being more nearly human than any other animal, you can get along much better if you hold a con sultation with him to a certain degree. For instance, if you were going to ask a favor of a crank, would you go to him and say, "I need help and you have got to help me or 1 shall force you to do it?" Would tihe man do it or not? Yet that is the way the so called horse-breaker does. In my ex perience of training colts and older hor ses, two-thirds of those I have handled have been called vicious...
