LIMITED BAIT. A teacher was one afternoon examin ing a class of young boys in geography. He said: "Now boys, what do you think that Noah did while ho was in the ark?"

THE NEXT ALLY. CHINA AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 26 February 1915
THE NEXT ALLY. CHINA AND THE WAR. It was stated recently, according to t the "Berliner Tageblatt," that China o would be Germany's next ally. It was s also said that, doubtless, Gernlan so cret agents are representing the Gor Sman Empcror as a great believer in the precepts of Confucius. Mr. William Yiuson Lee, managing director of Onyik and L.ee, Ltd., mor chants, of Sydney and Hong Kong, made the following comments on these statements to a Sydney "Daily Tele graph" reporter: "The reference to the German Em peror's great belief in the precepts of Confucius is quite the biggest of the t mnany jokes that the German Emperor has perpetrated. Peace is one of the chief teachings of Confucius. The Chinese recognise that there is no glory n in a war that slays one's fellowmen for t the sake of slaughter. Germany's bar barous methods are quite inconsistent with Christian ideals and also with those of Confucius. '"How," said Mr. Lee, 'can the Kai ser reconcile his deeds with his an 0 nounced...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 26 February 1915
MELBOURNE LETTER '-4-- (From our Special Correspondent) How neessary the mlotor bus has bS come to the suburbanite was brought home to him the other day when the emplioye: of the Company that provides that service stopped work. The buses have become established in competition with the trains and cable trams. The electric trams are the only system of loeomotion that can withstand them. It is not that they are comfortable. Much the reverse is the case. For the sound shake-up that is salu to be good for the liver-though it is probable that that, like many similar generally accepted beliefs is quite wrong-a trip along St. Kilda road on a bus is about as effective as anything could be. But the craze for getting there quick is of remarkable growth. For instance, by taking the bus from High street on ';t. Kilda road in preference to the cable tram, there is a saving of about five minutes in the run to the city. Granting that time is money and put ting the value on the basis of the time of ...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 26 February 1915
OF RURAL INTEREST -~-+-- (By "'Rusticus.'') Thelre is a tendency to regard the trouble of hard milkers as curable only in one way-that is by seilin gtho cow to somneone else. Iln the case of a young cow, of a good milking strain, it is worth attempting a cure. Teat-dilators may be tried Tlhese are inserted in the teat duct after milking, and left there till the next milking. They arl kept in place by a tape pass ing through the eye of the dilator, which is tied round the teat., Other in struments are obtainable which are self retaining. Great care must be taken to sterilise the dilator before inserting to prevent danger of introducing germs. This is easily managed by boiling the instrument in water for 10 minutes. The tube should be smeared with vase line, which ih s been kept in an airtight bottle, to ensure an easy passage. The action of the dilator is to relax the pressure of the sphincter muscles, which may be closing the opening of the teat. Sometimn.es the trouble is caused by...
