Football. BRUNSWICK V. NORTH MELBOURNE. A FAST AND CLEVER GAME WON BY NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
FoOtball. BRUNSWICK V. NORTH MEL. BOURNE. A FAST AND CLEVER GAME WON BY NORTH. There woro about 4000 people at the North Melbourne ground on Sat urday afternoon last at tIheo above match. Brunswick had Gillespie, Chase, Sullivan and O'Connor playing in place of George, Thomas, Madden and Corman. Tliere were no changes in the personnel of North Melbourne. After being well ahead as regards scor ing and in general play for the great er part of tle game, Brunswick were unable to withstand an overpowering finish by North -Melbourne, and were defeated by 12 points. North, how cver2, deserved great credit for the vic tory, as in the first quarter the unfor tunate Charlie Hardy received an ac cidental kick on the head, causing a severe wound. He was off the ground for some timne, and when he returned his head was bandaged to such an ex tent that it was obscuring his sight of the ball. However, Brunswick also had a turn of ill-luck. In the last, quarter, when the North Mel bourne attack was ...
INTERESTING ITEMS. BIRDS AND THEIR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
INTERESTING ITEMS. --4 --- 1IRfDS AND) TEIEli FOOl. It may not be thought that of all animals birds are among the largest eaters. This meanns, of course in proportion to their \weight. SoImet birds are known to consutmc two and a half tines their weight of food in twenty-four houlrs. The heron, which has a light weight of lib., in spite of its size, is a strik ing example. One was lately caught which had just swallowed two trout of ilib. and 21b. Wild pigeons are among the foremost eaters, and thy make a most copious repast whenever an abundance of food is found. Thus a single pigeon picked up 1,000 grains of wheat in one day. It is oblserved that thlie gases which water holds in solution have a marked effect upon the wear of iron and steel tubes, and if the oxygen is eliminated, the internal corrosion of piping is lessened to as much as one-tenth part in certatin cases. Following this method the hot water piping usedti for central heatino sys tems can be protected and n iln last mu...
Saved the "Topper." [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
Saved the "Topper." A literary man, possessed of the learned degree of doctor, used to take his midday luncheon at a well known West End cafe. One wet day the place was less fully-attend ed than usual, and the miserable state of the weather induced most of the v\isitors to seetk their various empnloyments as speedily as possible. When proceeding to follow their example, the learned doctor was as tonished to tind, in place of his shabby and weather-beaten head covering, a st lisih tall hat. shining n ith sparkling brilliancy. He could only attribute this quasi magical change to the delicate at tention of some friend, and hast ened to display the acquisition, with no little pride, to his family. 'The next day a young man accost ed him at the cafe and politely re marked : "Doctor, allow me to claim nmy hat and to apologise for the appa rent mistake. The fact was, hon' ever, I had no umbrella, and you had one. I did not know what to do to prevent my new hat from being spoilt in the rain...

"It -it is only a matter of an hour or o ; I can do nothing. "One moment," he added, gently letaining the girl, who was waiting n the stairs. "Shs seems to have ;omething on her mind. You--you ,ill do all you can to set her at 3ase ?" T'he girl nodded, and passed into ;he sick room. "'Mother," she murmured softly. The dying woman opened her eyes in recognition. "Kath !" she said, smiling faintly. 'I am going now, dear. Hush I ?ou mustn't cry like that! You rou've always been a good daughter to me, Kath, and there's something I want to ask you." "Ask anything, mother," sobbed the girl. "lt's about-about Jack Fair loud. lie-he will be out of prison before Christmas. I want you to ,romise me that you-that you will not marry him."

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) THE MESHES OF FATE. OR THE CURSE OF THE BLUE DIAMONDS SYNOPSIS OF PREVIOUS PART. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) -THE MESHES OF FATE. ------- O OR, -_____ THE CURSE OF THE BLUE DiAM ONDS. -----o----- 8 Hedley Richards, Author of "The Mine Master's Heir," "Time, the Avenger," etc., etc. SYNOPSIS OF PREVIOUS PART. The story opens in Australia, where Joshua Wedmore, an unsuccessful miner, is tramping along in search of fresh fields. Entering a hut he dis covers a man on a rude bed, ill with the fever. Whilst administering to the sufferer Wedmore notices a small bag and a loaded revolver under the pil low. On examination the bag proves to contain blue diamonds of enor mous value. These he appropriates, as he considers the fever-stricken one has only a few hours to live. Wed more goes on his way, finally reach in~g Melbourne, where he books a pas sage for England in the Fairy Queen. The vessel is wrecked, Wedmore and an elderly man named Rupert Heth erington, of Wynthshay, Hall, being the only survivors. After many days of suffering and exposure they are eventually rescued an...

THE DAIRY HINTS ON BUTTER AND CHEESE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
THE DAIRY 1+ HINTS ON BUTTER AND CHEESE MAKiING. Unless the churn is kept well venti lated, especially during the early part of the churning period, the cream will become frothy through being charged with gas liberated from the cream. Unless the churning is carried out satisfactoi'y the qua lity of the butter is bound to sutler. It should take from 20 to 33 minutes for the cream to turn to butter in the churn. Acidity in milk assists the action of rennet, resulting in a rather firm curd. In making soft and other kinds of cheese where a soft, ten.er curd is required, acid milk cannot be em ployed. In some varieties of cheese the presence of acid, so long as the milk is not too sour, does not have a serious effect upon the resulting cheese. In the production of cream cheese, it is important to use cnly pure fresh cream, and to make the cheese in as short a time as possible. In many cases the flavour of cream cheese is at fault throush the cream being kept too long while the cheese is ...
THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE JERSEY-SHORTHORN CROSS [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE JERSEY-SHORTHORN CROSS A writer in the "Mark Lane Ex press Agricultural Journal" strongly advocates the crossing of the Short horn with the Jersey,-as he considers it one of the most generally useful class of cattle for the dairyman, es pecially occupiers of small farms where the dairy, in one phase or an other, is a retail business of prim ary importance. The presumption is that he had in view what is called a dual purpose breed. History, how ever, has shown that this cross has not been such a success as would warrant to give it a further trial. R~ea·ding through the pleas, the writer puts in favour of his conten tion, it is evident that he has not studied the history of the two breeds sufficiently. The milking Shorthorn, as we know this breed in Australia, is still an undefinable proposition in England, and it is only within the last few years that efforts have been made to bring out the best qualities of that animal from a dairying propoeition. In the arti...
Quite Correct. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
Quite Correct. _I He was one of those inquisitive, loquacious strangers who, not con tent with telling you of all their doings and achievements, insist on learning all your secrets. And poor Jones found himself alone with the man in the corm partiment of a railway train which ran without a stop from Crewe to London. Having asked countless questions concerning his fellow-travellcr's busi ness and the object of his journey, the stranger began to make inquiry about his family. " Well, if you really want to know," said the exasperated J.ones, "I'll tell you. I have a wife and five children, but I've never seen one of them." "Never seen one of them ?" began the stranger. "But-but--" "I tell you T've never seen one oe them," repeated Jones. "I've been away from home for a week, and my youngest kiddie was born yes terday."
Dogs Distribute Disease. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
Dogs Distribute Disease. € Two of the most learned French professors of the Pasteur Ilnstitute have issued the following warning: "Beware of your pet dog." Street (logs of Marseilles have been found suffering from the dread ful Indian "black pest." In India this disease usually attacks dogs, and as many as ninety-eight per cent. die from its ravages. The southern parts of Italy and Algeria know the disease under the name of the ''"Mediterranean pest." T'his disease does not confine it self to the dogs themselves, but is carried by parasites to human be ings, and, singularly enough, nearly always attacks children from the ages of six months to three years. The child beconmes feverish and ner vous. goes into a decline. and gra dually wastes away. Out of three hundred cases u ndler special study only two per cent. have recovered. At the present time Great Britain is immnune from any danger in this direction, and sufliciently protected against any such likelihood by the complete prohibi...
IN OTHER LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
IN OTHER LANDS. The Swedish Lapps are said to live entirely with, by, and upon their reindeer. The most dangerous b enemy of the herd is the wolf, which can kill any deer. A band of wolves can make a rich Lapp t poor. When the snow is deep andi r soft, and it is announced that wolf t tracks have been seen in the neigh- k bourhood of the deer, the swiftest runners on snowshoes prepare for an t exciting chase. The wolf may have 1: a start of a mile or two, but the track .it leaves in the deep, soft snow t is so conspicuous that the hunters can follow it at their best speeal. t The wolf, though he may run swift ly, has but a slight chance of es ca!ing his pursuers on their snow shoes. Each hunter does his best to outrun the others, for the wolf belongs to the I.app who strikes .he first bllow. As soon as the leading hunter is close enough to the wolf he gives it a heavy blow i across the loins with his strong. spikedl stalT. If there are other wol es to be pursued, he kills it outright...
The Ether of Space. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 26 June 1914
The Ether of Space. --4--+----- Sir Oliver Lodge delivered a loc ture at BIedford Colloge, the other day, on the ''Ether of Space." I-He stated that "he was not sure about the ether being cohesive or not. Mr. G . I owloey now writes :--"I wouldl like to project the theory that other beyond the boundary of our gaseous atnmosphere can be no other than :ohesive, be cause it is certain that there are no gases or dust, or vapour, of any description to spcarate the parti cles of ether in the unfathomable space. Therefore it must be pure?, and, being pure, Imust essentially Ie cohesive. Not so where it abounds in our atmoslphere, for the molteculet s of oxygen and hydrogen, together with the other gases, being con stantly changed by the climatic influences, interfere with the cohes ion of ether. It n:ight be said of the inexplicable nature of radium, that it is a substance which dis aerees with thle particles of ether coming into contact with its .sur face, and throws them oft again, makin...

People With Their Own Railway Carriages. ---~---+--·--- IMany royalties and millionaires have their own yachts and their own motor-cars of exceeding luxurious ness, but few of theim, compara tively speaking, possess railway car ringes of their own. Yet some do, though .the average man ill the street knows little about this. And in other cases there are Royal or well to-do folk who have not actually built their own railway carriage, hbut who have an agreement or con tract with certain ('Companies to retain a splendidly fitted coachfor their own particular use when tra velling on the rails. Of the latter type is the arrange Inent mlnde by our King and Queen with sonme nf the lines in England.
