It is master of tho sealed and finned things that livo iu tho ocean's depths. It is alike hideous in appearanco aud habits, and moro than ono daring coral hunter mid pearl-diver has found death in Its terrible arms. Tho spider-crab flourishes and at tains its groatest sizo in tho warm waters of tho Japan eens. An adequate idea of tho hideousncss of the creature's appearance can only bo formed by those who have como across the monstor in its lair. Its shnpo bears a strong resemblanco to tho familiar spinning insect. Tho long legs, which often exceed forty feet in length, are thickly covered with coarso blnck hair. The body, ofton fifteen feet in cir cuinference, is also' covered with hair, in which barnaclcs and tiny shellfish make their home. When attacked, the spider-crab exudes an overpowering odour, which permea tes tho water around it...

This turnover shows a slight increase 011 the previous year, which may be attributed to the fact of another cream collecting cart being put on, which would have meant a larger in crease still only for the adverse season experienced. The number of sup pliers reached 126. The whole of the output was disposed of locally, as the I.ondon market did not hold out suf ficient inducement to ship any there.

In India this disease usually attacks dogs, and as many as ninety-eight per cent, dio from its ravages. The southern parts of Italy and Algeria know the disease under tho naino of tho "Mediterranean pest." This diseaso docs not confuio it self to the dogs thoinselvcs, but is carried by parasites to human be ings, and, singularly enough, nearly always attacks children from tho ages of six months to three years. Tho c hild becomes fevorisli and ner vous, goes into a decline, and gra dually wastes away. Out of three hundred cases under special study only two per cont. have recovered.

TRAGEDY WHICH INSPIRED FOE. - John Anderson, a tobacconist of New . York, was regarded as a shrewd business man, and showed .hist reputation was not undeserved when he engaged pretty Mary Rogers as manageress ,of his cigar-shop under the fashionable St. Nicholas Hotel, in Broadway.

The Water [?]upply. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 26 June 1914
' The Water fupply. - A.ballotwas taken yesterday as ? -to whether our little local com -^community would borrow fifteen hundred "Jim" and ensure a watersupply. We had suggested that ballot papers would be ; wanted, as much to remind the Shire Secretary (not .that he ?needed any reminding, but we -wanted time to do it), as to get ;the work. The ballot papers we, :&lt;saw flying round a day or two ago were printed " elsewhere." 3t seems that there is some regu lation, or Act, or sealed orders or something, which makes it im perative to get such work done, afar from the scene of action. Whoever framed, drew up, for mulated, thought of, put into ?force, or gavo birth to such an Act, regulation, by-law, or stipu-' lation, knows little about prin ters. "There might be a leakage,", is the feeble explanation. The writer has spent his life amongst :printers, and seen many a bad one, but never jne dishonest. There are plenty of frauds put upon the public, but Diogenes, -seeking with ...
Oil and Wool from Pine Needles. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 26 June 1914
Oil and Wool from Pine Needles. Pine-needle oil la a product do rived from the loaves of our pines (says the "Scientific American")' It has been extracted tor a great ninny years and is w'ell known the world over as a remedial . agent against rheumatism and alliod com* plaints. It is a volatile, colourless liquid obtained by distillation of fresh needles,' young twigs, and one year-old cones of our western and southern yellow pines. In order to produce oil of the best quality, fresh green needles must bo collect ed during tho spring, of tho year, probably in tho beginning of June. Pine-needle pickors go from treo to treo and select tho young, thrifty green loaves at the ends of twigs, which yield about 0.55 per cent, of volatilo oil. Those of old trees, which aro" dry and tough, produce much less and of much poorer qual ity. : A number of years ago this oil was supplied by a number of small stills or ordinary pharmaceutical distil leries.

Did Ancient Greeks Dance The Cakewalk? [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 26 June 1914
Did Ancient Greeks Dance The Cakewalk ? Can wo, in these modern days, claim originality for anything ? It seems not, for oven our "cake walk," which most people think was invented in rccent years, is now proved to have been familiar to the ancients. In tho British Museum can bo seen a Greek statuette of a lady who. lived 12*100 years ago in an attitude which seems strangely familiar. "I enjoyed your sermon this morn* injf very much," said Mark Twain to a clergyman of his acquaintance. "I welcomed it like an old friend. I have, you know, a hook ut homo containing every word of it." "You have not," said the prea cher. "1 have, indeed," returned the humourist. "Well, send that book to mo. I'd like to see it."
