BURIED MINERAL WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 14 May 1914

BURIED MINERAL WEALTH. J The many official and unofficial re ports which are constantly being made as to the potentialities and capabilities of the Northern Terri tory, must, in time, bear fruit. The ex-Director of Lands, Mr. George Ry lands, has added one more drop to the bucket of valuable information re the natural resources of the Ter ritory ; and he gives, as a reason for the apparent lack of enthusiastic settling in that country, the fact that most people hang back to see some preparatory work done, also to form an idea of what the future policy is likely to be. before putting their luck to the test. Tbat settlers should display a hesi tancy in risking their time, health, and money in a comparatively tin known land, is only natural, and has been the case in all parts of the world where settlement is in embryo. California went through its time of probation. Its vast spaces, untra versed by road or railway, were re garded with suspicion by the popu lous east American States ; an...

BEEF TRIPE—TO FRICASSE. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 14 May 1914

BEKF Till PR—TO KTUCA.SSIi. Stew gently in milk and watef two pounds of tripe, cut- into strips of equal length n bunch of parsley anil an onion. When these have simmered for one hour, add the peel of half o lemon (yellow rind only) an ounce of butter rubbed in flour, and a quarter of a pint of cream. Season with a grate of nutmeg (be careful not to overdo with this gpicfi), adding salt and pepper to taste. Simmer the whole for hatf an hour longer. Serve with the sauce found the tripe and a border of boiled rice beyond It. A good way to give stews a brown colour, without adding colouring, is to save the outside of onions, and when washed add them to stow, and boil together. This will be found a much nicer way than adding browning. |

The river J-yn, un the banUs of which the hamlet is situated, threads its tortuous way between very high hills that appear completely to shut in the place from the outside world.

EDUCATING THE HINTERLAND [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 14 May 1914

EDUCATING THE HINTER LAND Residents of the cities and towns of Australia, who enjoy nil the privi leges of a spoon-fed ilisation, can form no idea of the privations and disabilities under which the pioneers of the hinterland exist. Thanks, however, to a progressive educational policy, no locality how ever small, provided it can produce from 15 to 20 children of school age, is denied the advantages of educa tion ; even though the standard at tained to by the teacher may not be very high. Should two sparsely populated localities be within rea sonable) distance of one another the district is taken under the Depart ment's wing, and an itinerant teacher provided, who spends half-time at each school. Going still further out-back, we find that, any family or number of families may choose a teacher for their children, and call upon the De partment to subsidise him or her for thp sum uf £5 or .CO per annum for each pupil to a maximum of ten pupils. The weak link in this system is the haphaza...

How We May "Taste" Electricity. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 14 May 1914

How We May " Taste " Electricity. In some forms electricity is invis ible, while in others it may |>o seen. The lightning (lash ntul the electric light are easily seen, hut the current itself is really invisible to the eye. The sense of feeling can detect the presence of the mysterious element, mid the sense of heating may de tect it, and the sense of smell has been known to locate the presence of the wonderful power, but it has just recently been discovered that, we can taste electricity. Metals of an opposite nature will, when properly connected, throw off n smart current of electricity, and this may be tasted by taking a piece of bright, clean tin. about the size of a florin, and placing il either, above the tongue... or beneath it, with a silver piece of equal size on the opposite side. Keep the outer edges of the silver and tin apart for/ a moment, and'see if you ciin detect nny taste. .* Then bring the outer edges of the metals together with one above ami the other beneath ...
