PIONEERS OF EMPIRE. Adventures Among Cannibals. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 13 June 1914

PIONEERS OF EMPIRE. Adventures Among Cannibals. "OC the many gallant men," the late Lord Shaftesbury once said, "who have (lone heroes' work as Scouts of lOmpire, I know none who bore a braver heart through more perils than James Chalmers, who was the piotieer and virtual foundor of British New Guinea." If ever a man was born for adven ture it was surely tills son of an Aber deen stone-mason, who was cradled one August day in 18-11, In an obscure fishing village on Loch Fyne; and who seems to have imbibed a pasBion for roaming with the first breaths of sea-air he drew. Before he had entered his teens, James Chalmers had mado a local hero of himself by saving two HveB at great risk to his own, and was known as the most fearless lad in the district. It was an unkind fate that condemned him for a few years to a stool in solicitor's ofilce at Inver ary: and ii was a glad day when em ancipation came: after three years' training, ho was sent away to the far South Seas as missionary to Rar...

THE BEST SELLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 13 June 1914

THE BEST SELLERS. Sir H. Rider Haggard Is surely no laggard'; he's turning out narratives six at a time; he's always so busy it makes a man dizzy, and stirs up tlie envy of E. Oppenheim. He's still writing stories concerning the glories of African chiefs In the dim long ago, cf braves and wltch-flndeirs and seers who wore blinders yet spelled out a future of bloodshed and woe. An H.

Phillips, God bless him!—It's ill to distress him!—has long held the record for turning out junk; with toeB and with fingers he wrote humdingers, and each of his elforts wore surely most ;punk.

EARLY YUCATAN RACES CAPABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 13 June 1914

EARLY YUCATAN RACES ' CAPABLE. Various authorities have ascribed to tho ruius In Yucatan an age of from 1000 to 11,000 years. These fig I ures are based on data derived from calendar stones preserved in many places both in Yucatan and in,neigh boring regions such as Mexico and Guatemala. The stones can be deci phered with considerable accuracy, and exact dates can be assigned to the i construction of many buildings. The | only trouble is that the' dates belong to the various local eras of the dif ferent countries, and no one knows when a single one of the eras began. This ignorance affords an ample field for speculation. There are, however, slrong reasons for believing (writes Ellsworth Huntington in "Harper's Magazine") that the ruins date "back a long time before the coming of the Spaniards. Two of tne strongest of these reasons are that when the Span iards came to Yucatan, early in the sixteenth century, the Mayas, .in the first place, were a slow, mild, unpro gressive people, ut...

THE VILLAGE CURE IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 13 June 1914

THE VILLAGE CURE IN FRANCE. The French cure has neither wife nor family, nor oven income or par sonage such as wo should recognise. His house is *a tiny affair of four rooms, and his Income £36 a year. No more? Well, the offerings of the people may come to £3 more, and this is all. -- course, 1 speak of the average rural euro. Men of mark and men of towns will always get a heav ing and an income. What can life on such an income consist of? Noth ing but die plainest fare, and life without pleasure—at least, without ail artificial one. No annual holiday; even his visits to Paris—very rare, be it noted—are the treat of some generous parishioner. The Revolu tion destroyed the country seats of France, so he rarely has a squire to ask him to dinner, lie lives, there fore, wilh and in the ways of tlio peasants, lie is as much a member of a caste as any Hindoo, and rarely do you see him walking with a lay man. Usually ho is with a brother cure, or else he walks along reading Ms book. Custom...

A GREAT BOON TO HUMANITY. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 13 June 1914

A'GREAT BOON TO HUMANITY. Bioxide oC sodium seems to be one of the greatest boons to humanity which the century has given—that is, if the reports as to the recent demon stration of~its qualities before the French academy of science prove to be substantiated. it is said that this product pos sesses the property of renewing oxy gen, the life-sustaining principle in air, as well as of absorbing carbonic acid as it is given off. Two men with a new apparatus containing bioxide of sodium are alleged to have put on diving dresses from which all air was excluded, and remained for the space of two hours under these conditions. Subsequently they remained under water for half an hour under similar conditions. The availability of this new means of revitalising air in the case of sub marine craft seems obvious. But its use is likely to be very extended, en abling firemen to penetrate the dens est smoke without danger of suffoca tion, and miners to pursue their call ing safely, by depriving "fire...

LIGHT LOAMS FOR DAIRY FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 13 June 1914

LIGHT LOAMS FOR DAIRY FARMS. The ideal soil for a dairy farm is a loam o£ medium to light texture. A loam is the name usually applied to soil which contains fair proportions of the principal plant food ingredients, and is rich in that important constitu ent humus which is known to play so large a part in plant growth. Loamy soils are usually low lying, and while sufficiently open texture to al low the winter rains to pass through without lodgment or stagnation, they are at the same time so pervious that even in dry summer weather the water underneath comes up with such freedom they very seldom suffer from drought. For this reason loamy soils usually carry a good growth of grass during the greater part of the year— from early spring to late in the au tumn. In addition to this the herb age produced on them is usually of good quality, and when properly treat ed and kept clear of objectionable weeds, such herbage will be found to consist very largely of the hotter descriptions of grasse...
