THE FARM. POTATOES. PROMISING NEW VARIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914
THE FARM. 1 POTATOES. PROMISING NEW VARIETY. All growers are on tho look-out for a blight-resistant potato, and though | wo are somewhat diffident in advan j cing the claims of any particular va | rioty out of the hundreds that make ' their appearance each season, it ie | well to note the reports to hand in recent English agricultural papers in. regard to a new variety known as Vitality. This i>otat&lt;* has been introduced by Mr. James Richardson, Old Leake, near Boston, and some of tho Lin i colnshire growers-in which county lover 80,000 acres were planted in po : tatoes last season-have shown great, j faith in it. The "Mark Lane Express," reports ! as follows : It IB said that this tuber has done remarkably well, and (though not sprayed, has emerged ' through this season's wretched atmo spheric conditions "absolutely fren , from blight. It was in 1896 that Mr. Richardson, from an apple o.l one of . Kerr's varieties, managed to rear the I Vitality tuber. It is a very bi...
EGGS FOR HATCHING. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914
EGGS FOR HATCHING. In sending away eggs for hatching several methods may be adopted.. Special boxes made of wood, or- good 6trong cardboard, fitted with com I partments, are sold for the purpose, . j and in such cases the trouble is re ! duced to a mimimum. j A cheaper mothod, however, is to i obtain a chocolate or soap box : large enough to hold a dozen eggs, ; and to wrap each egg carefully in newspaper, finally wedging .the eggi tightly in the box with more paper or hay, in such a way that they can not move. All boxes of eggs for hatching should be sent by passen ger train at parcels rates, fully labelled to denote the contents. If consignments of eggs are sent by train to distant markets they should be packed in wooden compartment boxes, such as can be obtained from any appliance manufacturer. These boxes are returned to the sender/and the percentage of breakages is small. It very often happens that new kid gloves are split the very first time they are tried on. This can be pre-...
CHAPTER XXVII. THE SHAPING OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914
CHAPTER XXVII. THE SHAPING.OF EVENTS. When Laurie reached home the bell was ringing for luncheon, and a few minutes later he entered tlift dining room, expecting to hear some caustic remarkG about his tardy appearance, as Sir Leonard Hatton was a great stickler for punctuality ; but to his surprise he found bis unclc was not at the table, and Laurie took his seat with a sense of being one bet ter /than the master of the house, and waited patiently for his appear ance. At last, when five minutes had pas sed, he turned to the butler, who was hovering about, saving : " "I suppose my uncle is in the house ?" "Yes, sir. The master's been in the library all the morning. It's queer, Mr. Laurie, that he doesn't come. I have lived in this house forty years, man and boy, and I've never known him half a second late for a meal be fore. I've heard him send people away as .had come on business, if it was likely to interfere with his lun cheon. He's mighty particular about his digestion, and it's ...

Happy Convicts. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914
Happy Convicts. A Swiss prison appears to be the very place in which to spend a cheap Holiday, as you have practi cnlly nil you want-a comfortable cell, central Keating, electricity, good food, ' a fair quantity of wine or beer and tobacco, and a library. You can leaili a trade, have plenty of exercise, and there is little work to do in return for all these ad vantages. Until a year ago, at tho Thorberg Prison, good-conduct prisoners were even allowed out oncc a week on "parole," but, though no prisoners escaped, this custom has been suppressed. Of all tho Swiss prisons perhaps the "jollirst is that of Krcuzlingen. ill the Canton of Thurgau. The .in mates have weekly smoking .. con certs,. when the latest music-hall songs can be heard, and good music, with the .result that at even ings. the townspeople-Krcuzlingcto has nearly 6,000 inhabitants-gather enviously under the prison walls, and promenade in the street enjoy ing the free entertainment, espe cially lis somo of the'convicts h...
PERSONALITY IN MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914
PERSONALITY IN MILKING. Wo have taken opportunity at in tervals to dircct attention to the in fluence of kindly treatment as ap plied to milking cows, and to the fact that, a better yield will be ob tained from the same animal gently handled, than if knocked about and worried by dogs or ill-tempered per sons. Experiments recently, communi cated to "Hoard's Dairyman" go even, further. It would appear that apart alto gether from ill-treatment of any kind a cow will often respond more freely to one person than to another, the animals apparently having likes and dislikes, such as occur so frequently in human beings. . . ? A heavy producing Holstcin cow, in the dairy herd at the Kansas State Agricultural College, freshened oarly, in December, and was milked by man No. 1. This man had mil'/ed her for several weeks, when he left for 'n vacation. Man No. 2 took charge of the milking. The cow re sponded to his milking, and gave as much as 81.4 pounds of milk per day. Her highest day previous...
Electric Eels. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914
Electric Eels. A correspondent of the " Morning Post," writing of the oloctric oel, says he recently mndo the experi ment of touching the young speci men now in the Tortoist House of tho Zoo. Although only tho tips of the fin gers of one hand came into contact with tho fish for a moment, tho shock felt was very sudden, ami powerful enough to be almost pain ful . it extended up the arm, an«l was felt mo.st strongly across the muscles of the upper arm. .There can be .little ('oubt, con tinues the writer, that a full shock from a full-grown specimen would be enough to knock a man. down. The grent traveller Humboldt 4 at the beginning of the last century stated that the natives of Brazil drove horses through swampy where . theso fishes were, that tho horses wore thrown oft their feet by the shocks, and that when the electric force was thus exhausted tho fish could be caught and handled. No later confirmation of this as a practice among the natives has been forthcoming, and it may bo tha...
CALF REARING. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914
. CALF REARING. The Royal Agricultural Society of England has been conducting some experiments on the rearing of calves, and hap issued a report of the re sults. These experiments were carried out with several batches of animals, divided into five groups, and over a period of nine weeks. . The different kinds of food were as follows Cod^liver oil and separated milk ; whole crushed-oats with separated milk. The whole result of the experi ments may be summed up in one statement - that the crushed oats and separated milk gave the best re turns. This is very instructive in deed .and is all in favour of the use of home-grown food, as both the oats' and separated milk may be pro duced on the-farm. The present writer has just been' informed by one of his neighbours that the best food he has discover ed for the growth of calves after the first month of milk feeding is over, is a mixture of oats and whole beans. The beans are only partly chewed and regurgitated and chewed over again in the o...
NO IDLE TEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914
IDLE TEAKS. An amusing * story about Dr. Archibald Pitcairne, the physician, Jacobite, and scholar, is told by Francis Watt in "The Boob of Edinburgh Anccdotc." Doctor Pitcaire was not often a churchgoer, but on one occasion ho took refuge in a church from a shower of rain. .The sermon was commonplace, but the preacher was emotional, and he wept copiously, and,, as it seemed to.Pitcairne, irre levantly . Ho turned to the only other occupant of the pew, a stolid countryman, and whispered, "What on earth gars the man greet?" "You would maybe greet your self," was tlm solemn unsWer, "if you was up there and had as little to say." 1946.

A Gigantic Aeroplane!. " A FLYING VILLAGE." A Hying village-that is the im pression given to;y those who sec above their heads -that- amdzing bi plane, the Ilia-Kpuramotz. Forthis gigantic machine, .the invention-of a little-known aeronaut, .Igor Sikorsky carried sixteen ^people a few weeks ago in a record-breaking flight of eighteen minutes. P- It - rose to a height' of ' 300'.; metres-about 000 feet. The flight started at the Korpusny Aerodrome, in St. Peters burg. Two 'days later Sikorsky accom plished a feat which . students of aviation consider still more remark able. With eight passengers he steered tho Uia-KournmeU'from St. Petersburg to Tsarkoe-Selo through Gatchina and baclc to St. Peters burg. This flight took place ..'J000 feet above the ground, and lasted two hours and six minutes. This was a triple record made-for height, for duration, and for flight with nine people .aboard. The length of this epoch«making machine* is 62 feet, and, its'span is ltd.' feet.( When empty, ...

Mexico's Great Seaport. THE ROMANCE OF TAMFICO. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 2 October 1914
Mexico's Great Seaport. THE BOMANCJB OF TAMFICO. Until trouble aroso between the ] United States and Mexico, tho aver ago person probably knew Uttlo I about Tampico, tho Mexican sea I port.' ? Nevertheless, it is a town I which provides one of tb* most ro } markabl© of modern romances of industrial investment. Tampico bocamo famous in the money market at the beginning of tho great oil boom, and some idea of its importance in connection with that industry may be gathored from tho fact that in about ten years nearly fifty million 8torling has bcon invested In tho oilfields in the Stata of Tamaulipas to which Tam pico belongs. Of this total over £16,000,000 represents British in terests, and tho amazing growth of oil properties in that corner of tho world is illustratod by tho fact that from the 1,000,000 barrels of oil , secured in 1?07, the figure has grown to 16,000,000, which ww? last year's total. Apart from oil, however, Tampi co, which shares with Vera Cruz the greater portion o...

"You promised me a steady job." "Well,/ hayen't you got one ?" was the astonished reply. "No," said t*ho man, "there are three or four hours cvory night that I don't, have anything .to do* but fool my time away sleeping."
SOFT HATS AND SALUTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 2 October 1914
SOFT HATS AND SALUTATIONS. Much has been said recently by wearers of "derbies" and silk hats about the informality, the lack of ceremony, imparled by the soft hat to men's salutations in public. Few of these champions of dignified courtesy realise, however, that their own more ceremonious salute has degenerated from its original form. The lifting of the hat has gradually come to bo the salutation itself, whereas in reality it should be, as it was in the past, but a preliminary to the. real token of respect, the bow with bared head. Thus it was in tho days of plumed soft hat and court sword. Tho sweep of the hat was only a grace ful emphasis of tho bow. Thus it was in the closing years of the ,eighteenth century, when an Eng lish manual of manners, "Tho Po lite Academy, . or School of Be haviour," laid down the proper rules 'for- tho lifting of tho hat "in passing by," further directing that one should look at the person one bowed to, "holding tho -body gently forward." And thus it r...
IN OTHER LANDS. A GLIMPSE OF THE EAST. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 2 October 1914
IN OTHER LANDS. A GLIMPSE OF THE EAST. I have a very pleasant recollec tion of a. business transaction with a Chinaman in tho city, which goes [ to support tho general opinion that I tho Chinese trader is amongst the 1 most honest of business men. I had purchased a Chinese bracelet for my wife, and had agreed about tho price, and had actually paid for it, when I noticed that if tho fast ener failed to catch it would pro bably drop on and bo lost. When I mentioned this to the shop keeper, offering to pay for a keeper chain, ho at once had ono fixed, and refused to accept anything for it, although the alteration must havo cost him 15s. or 20s. I montion this incident to show the Chinaman has his good quali ties as well as his weak ones ; and in this respect, I suppose, he resem bles everyone else. On leaving Shanghai wc crossed the Chinese Sea, and found oursel ves in a day or two off Kobe, ono of the shipping centres of Ja pan. From here I paid a running visit to Sir William Levor's ...
GOOD MORNING. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 2 October 1914
GOOD MORNING. A sunbeam touched my little bed. "Good morning, dear," ho gently said. I opened wide my sleepy eyes, And said, "Good morning," with! surprise; "I cannot think that night is gone. And are you sure that*this is morn?" The sunbeam laughed and shook his . head. "Last night you would not go to bed, And thai is why you sleep so late, And make mo climb the window' gato To soy, " Wake up, you sleopy dear ! , Wake up-God bless you ! Morning's . here !" Little sorrows,, while they last, may be AS hard.to bear as great ones; happily, they do not last so long.-Fileon Young.
Where the Eye is Deceived. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 2 October 1914
Where' the Eye Deceived. A curious optical illusion is sonie-.| time5 seen as a motor-car passes, | ihe. wheels of the moving vehicle ap« i pearing for an instant to stop or; oven turn backwards. In an inves tigation reported to the Royal So ciety, Professor A. Mallock mounted a cardboard disc with spokes on a flywheel, and- when this was re volved so rapidly tha^ the spokes could not be seen or easily.- fol lowed by the eye, and a slight mechanical shock of almost any kind was given the observer, the spokes appeared almost stationary for a fraction of a second. Shocks hav ing this effect were given in many ways,- such as in the contact of the feet with the ground as in walk ing, by tapping the he&d or body, | or even by rapidly blinking the eyes. It was proved that the ap pearances depend' on the speed of rotation, the brightness of illumina tion, and to some degree on the na ture of the shock. The explana tion was offered that the shock pro duces a momentary loss or varia ...
