BUSINESS IN DISGUISE HI 'L-I-Ti , AX IXGEXIOUS SYSTEM. FARMERS RECEIVE WATCHES. ROCHESTER, Saturday. Several well-to-do farmers in the Tennyson district were surprised re cently to receive registered parcels through the post from Sydney. The content's of the packets in each in stance proved to be 'what at first, glance looked like valuable gold watches, of Swiss make. The re cipients marvelled how Santa Clans singled them out for such sumptuous gifts. They showed them to their friends and relations proudly, and sought in vain 10 solve the identity of the philanthropic givers. But the dreams of kind hearts were rudely shattered when communica tions were received from a Sydney firm that their names had been given io the firm as persons who were badly .11 need of this especial brand of watch. Accompanying each letter was an in voice for several pounds. Those far- , :ners who had carefully put aside their sifts until they had some glimmering is to the giver, immediately wrote isking the...

TANGO IN TRAINS. NEW YORK, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 9 February 1914

TAXGO IX TltAlXS. NEW YORK, Saturday. Tango dancing to relieve the tedium of transcontinental railway journeys is the latest American novelty. Annoyance has been caused to a Rochester watchmaker lately ]-,y the behavior ol his large Vienna rc (jiilator clock, by which his cus tomers usually set tlieir watches. Its continual stopping has taxed the trader's ingenuity to the full, and the inconvenience caused to the public has., been no small mat ter. The cause of the trouble has 'been found to be a la/ffc spider, which used to run out from a hid ■den crevice of the clock-case, seize the ball of the large pendulum, and cling' to it until the pendulum ccased to swing. As soon as the clock had stepped, the spider re tired to its liest. It must have taken up its residence in the clock case when very small, ior the case is practically dust-proof. Albert Duckman, 4-2, laborer, was admitted to the Melbourne Hos pital oil Saturday afternoon bv Dr. F. L. Nance, suffering from the effects of su...

Concerning the Turtle. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 9 February 1914

Concerning the Turtle. The turtle is the strangest of. all living' things, and the most unfathom able. Me can live in the water as well as out of it, and can seemingly go ' for indefinite lengths of time without air or food or light. lie is neither fish, nor flesh, nor fowl, and yet he has the characteris tics of all three. As for his eating, it seems quite superfluous, for he can remain shut up in a barrel for a num ber of weeks and emerge at the end of the time apparently none the worse for the lack of food and light and air. 1 The baby turtle seems also just as | indifferent as to its surroundings as I the parents arc. As soon as it comes from its egg it scuttles off to the sea. It has no one to teach or guide it. In its brain seems implanted the idea that until its armour becomes hard it has no defence against hungry fish. And so it seeks shelter in gulf weed and feeds unmolested until its armour gets hard. By the time that it weighs 2-51b.. which occurs the first* year, it know...

ENTERTAINMENTS ROYAL HALL PICTURES. TO-NIGHT'S PROGRAMME. A particularly attractive list of pic tures will be screened at the Royal Hall to-night, the star film being The Conscience Fund. It deals with ihe operations of a ci-gar trust in America defeating the customs and netting large sums of money at the expense of the Government revenue. The son and daughter of the chairman of the trust are estranged from their father, and their efforts to make him redeem the past are full of interest and inci dent. Th'e Conscience Fund is with out doubt a magnificent picture, and should be seen to be appreciated. A pretty scenic is entitled Buckingham shire, in which the towns of Ayles jbury, AVendover and others are shown, as well as the Chess and the famous Burnham beaches.

History of Tea. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 9 February 1914

History of Tea. The earliest record of tea being mentioned by an Englishman was probably that contained in a letter from Mr. Wickham. an agent of the East India Company, written from Firando, in Japan, on June -7th, LU1C, to another officer of the com pany. resident at Macao, in the south of China, asking him for "a put of the best sort of chaw."' It was not until the middle of that century that the English began to use tea; they received their supplies from Java until 16SG, when they were driven out by the Dutch. At first the price in Eng land ranged from ,£6 to .£10 per lb In the '"'Mcrcuvius Poluicus'' of Sep tember, 165S, occurs an advertisement of the "China Drink called by the Chineans Teha, by other nations Tay. alias, Tee.': being sold in London. Thomas Garwav, the first English tea-dealer, in 1G59 or 1G60, offered it .it prices varying from los. to 50s. per lb. Not until 1077 is there a record of the East India Company having taken any steps [or its im portation.
