A NEW WAY TO KILL RATS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 26 March 1902

A NEW WAY TO KILL RATS. ? ! In Brazil rats have multiplied to such an extent that inhabitants are obliged to train a certain kind or snake to exterminate "them. This domestic snake is the Giboia, a small species of boa, about 12ft. in length ' and as thick as a man's arm. They 'can be bought in the market of Rio \ Janeiro Hahia etc., at prices ranging | from one to two dollars. Theso j snakes are quite tame and harmless. ! Their ■ motion is very slow, and they : usually pass the whole day asleep coiled up in the sun. But when night comes ..on the Giboia is suddenly transformed ; a new instinct seems to possess it; it makes its way to every part of the house, with a caution and cunning we would hardly have thought it capable of. It even man ages to climb up between the rafters of the roof, and under the floor, which is not at all incredible when we con sider how the houses are constructed. The Giboia is now in ambush. If a 'rat appears it is doomed. With one bound the snake is upon i...

ORIGIN OF THE WORD " QUIZ." [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 26 March 1902

ORIGIN OF THE WORD " QUIZ." It is by no means commonly known that the English language contains a word which is in common use, not withstanding the fact that the word owes its origin to a wager. About a hundred years since, at a tavern, cal led the " Eagle," in Eustace Street, Dublin, several Dublin men met to geth6r, for a jolly evening. I One of the party present happened to use the French expression " un I fagotin 'Sand when asked the mean- i ing of the words, reluctantly replied, I that the English ^language did not j contain any pre'cise equivalent:' : i " Then why not coin one to suit ?" asked Richard Daly,"of Smock Alley Theatre. ■ .. " Although derided for: foolishness- he immediately laid a wager, which was speedily acceptcd, ;that beforo; forty eight hours- had passed, there would be a word in the mouths of all classes of the Doublin public, to which a de finate meaning should be' attached, without any suggestion or explana tion from him. The parly shortly afterwards broke...

Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 26 March 1902

Household Hints. Your Own Pape?hanger.—If you are an pmateur, but want to paper a room your self, always remember that q, self-color paper is far easier to manage than one iu which there is a pattern to be matched. These can be bad now in almost any shade, and, with a fancy border round tho top, oven if there is no podding, look extremely nice, For a Stubborn Grease Stain.—Put two (thicknesses of blotting paper on an ironing board. Place the grease-stained material on it, saturate it with benzine, covor with, two more thicknesses of blotting paper, and jron with a moderately hot iron. This plan is excellent. But remember that benziue is highly inflammable, and there fore must not be used ne$r a fire or light, For cloaning paint generally, cold tea is excellent, but for while paint milk is stiU better. To remove grease spots cover them with iclean brown paper, c/r, better still, blotting paper, and press with a hot iron, Shift the paper several times as it absorbs the grease. To make...

HORSES FIRST LIVED IN WEST AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 26 March 1902

HORSES FIRST LIVED IN WEST V AMERICA. That the horse originated in Amer ica rather than in the Old World is not a new theory, but it lias received strong support from a recent fmd of the Texas fossil expedition, sent out by the American Museum of Natural History. ' The expedition discovered the remains, of a prehistoric horse in a geological formation so ancient, as to add strength to the claim of Amer ica to have originated the horse. Formerly it was generally believed the horse originated in Europe, espec ially as the aboriginal Indian tribes first encountered by the while men 011 the American continent had 110 hor ses'.- ■ ■ The fossil _sJ{eleton was found in a bed of sand about 100ft. in thickness in Bristol County, Texas. v It is an entirely, new species of pleistocene horse, and the only one, so far found. A: new name was nec essary to designate it from, other types, so the term Equits Scotti was selected in honour of Professor W. D. Scott, of Princeton, a well-known palaeonto...

VALUE OF AN EMMICRANT. ABLE-BODIED MEN WORTH £2,000 TO AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 26 March 1902

VALUE OF AN EMMICRANT. ABLE-BODIED MEN WORTH £2,000 TO AMERICA. Those who have contended that the United Stales is losing its Anglo Saxon individuality on account o[ the influx of foreign immigrants will be surprised to learn that for the five months ended May 31, 1901, there arrived on American soil 39,823 per sons from Great Britain as against a grand total of all other national ities of only 31,28 . Of the first named number £19,695 were of English birth, 2,978 Scotch, and 17,150 Irish. One American journal apraises each able-bodied immigrant as worth about £2,000 to the United States, This represents the surplus wealth lie creates in an average life over wl'iat he receives in the way of wages. Nor is this all. " The average emigrant from Great Britain," con tinues this authority, " is of mature age, and is skilled in some trade or business, so that lie straightway goes to work, making wealth for his em ployer, and contributing to the gen eral prosperity.

MARRIED 500 TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 26 March 1902

MARRIED 500 TIMES. To be married six times' during tlie.honeymoon, is an experience that comes to few (says a writer in the "New Penny Magazine"). Four years ago a village youth and his sweetheart read a furniture dealer's adverLisement, offering' a drawing room suite to any couple that con sented to be married publicly in his shop. They secured the suite. Go ing on their wedding trip to an Ohio town, they noticed a similar adver tisement and repeated the perform ance. Then'the idea struck the hus band that he might arrange these matters himself, and in two weeks lie had persuaded six dealers in various towns to emulate the others. Nomin ally- the couple won r a specified prize at each place, but they really received a cash consideration arranged before hand. So it has gone on ever sincc. The couple • now claim to have been married , 500 times.

ANOTHER WIRELESS WONDER. REMARKABLE TRANSMISSION OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 26 March 1902

ANOTHER WIRELESS WONDER. REMARKABLE TRANSMISSION | OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY 1 A demonstration of the apparatus constructed under the Orling-Arm strong patents for transmitting elect rical energy without wires, was given in England recently at the country residence of one of the inventors, near Saunderton, Bucks. The inventors claim that by their patent the results obtained by the Marconi system'of. wireless telegraphy may be secured by the transmission of electrical impulses by the earth* cur rent instead of ether waves. The advantage urged is that the system is much less costly than Marconi's, and that its use for telephone pur poses is far cheaper than the present system of telephony. The demonstration was in the open air, and despite the weather condi tions were fairly satisfactory. Two small sheds were erected 500 yards apart which contained the apparatus and an ofdinary telephone receiver. By pressing a key conversation was carried on between the two stations, and messages in the M...
