SOME SALUTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 22 January 1914
SOME SALUTATIONS. The prostration and the Balaam, sal , utations that many Orientals use, are j only more pronounced forms of the bow. So there is a connection between the embrace, bo common in civilised countries, and the greeting of a mem ber of the Koiari tribe of British New Guinea, who, in saluting a missionary, placed one arm abou this neck and stroked him under the chin. Among the M?sai and the Ukerewe it is a mark of respect to greet an ac quaintance or a stranger by spitting at him. Almost as strange is tho cus tom ascribed to the Tibetans of putting out tho tongue by way of salutation. .Rubbing noses is quito common; tho Burmese and many tribes of Eskimos, Laplanders, and Malays do so. Stranger than any of these customs is tho weeping salutation that has been observed among Central South Amer ican Indians. This form of greeting occurs too in tho Andaman Islands, New Zealand, and Polynesia. A Por tugueso explorer thus describes tho cus tom as ho saw it used among a tribe of...

THE BLOATER. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 22 January 1914
THE BLOATER. It is generally known that a bloator is a complete herring slightly salted and smoked; hnt few people are aware that the origin of this articlo of diet was accidental. A Yarmouth herring curer, when leaving his promises one night after all his workpeople had gone found a qtinntitv of good herrings which hnd been overlooked. Fearing they would bo spoiled if left as they were he sprinkled them with salt and Fiinn them in his "smoke house," in which oak-billet was thon being burned. The next morning it was ovident that his experiment had been successful. H" began to specialise in this direction an example which was speedily followed by others, until the fame of the bloater was established in the land. The kipper is a snlit herring cured in smoke. Tho late Mr. John Woodger. of Newcastle-on-Tyno and Yarmouth was the fortunnto discoverer of this itin thod of treating the horring. The process of producing the red herring is analogous to that of tho bloater. th» difference bein...
SUBMARINE CINEMA PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 22 January 1914
SUBMARINE CINEMA PICTURES. Among tho probabilities of the fu ture are moving pictures taken at the bottom of tho sea. Already a young American, J. Ernest Williamson, has taken snapshots at a depth of thirty fivo feet, and will soon take a moving picturo outfit to Bermuda to procure desired subinarino 6cenes. For this trip a special boat will bo used. Wil liamson is a newspaper photographer and cartoonist. His father, Ca.pt. J. H. Williamson, invented tho flexible sub marine tube from which photographs under tho watar liavo already been taken Recently in Hampton Roads Wil liamson, tho younger, went down in the tube, which was fixed into a well at the bottom of a bargo thirty feet long. The well was six foot squaro. Tho tube, made of iron sections with a water proof cover of rubber and canvas, could be lowered to any depth. At tho bot torn of tho tube -was tho "work-cham ber, 0," as Williamson calls it, -which may bo of any size. In this William son sat with an ordinary camera and loo...

THE HATCHING OF CROCODILES.

A REMARKABLE BIRD COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 22 January 1914
A REMARKABLE BIRD OOLONY. The most remarknble bird colony in the world is on Hot Island, in the Great Salt Lake, Utah The island is about twelve acres in extent, nnd on a rocky T)innacle a hundred feet above the brine, with not a drop of fresh wator to be found, and where there is nothing-to excite the cupidity or com mercial instinct of man, the birds Bulls, pelicans, herons, and cormorants bv the thousand-make their home The island can Be seen at a distance of ten miles, risinc like a "cocked hat" out of the sapphire of the inland sea. The birds aro utterly fearless. Pro tected as thev aro by the laws of the Rtato, they havo had little cause to fear man and his death-dealing weap ons. It is necessary to use the irreatc?* caro to avoid stepping on the. nesta and eees of the tons of thousands of sen foTvl that have established their rook eries on the islet.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 22 January 1914
TO THE EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS. SIR.— I was very pleased to note that the Shire Council has taken action in connection with the oubreak of diphtheria in Tungamah, but I am of opinion that the Council should go further in the matter. Judging by his report, it would appear that the health officer's inspection was confined principally to the premises where sickness really occurred, but it would perhaps be wise to make an inspection of the whole of the back yards in the town, as well as the drains and gutters in the back streets. There is room for improvement in many places. — Yours, &c., VERB, SAP.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 22 January 1914
TO THE EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS. SIR,— Anyone reading Dr Kennedy's report in your last issue would naturally &nbsp; believe that Mrs Joy and myself en- deavored to prevent the health officer seeing our daughter, who had had a sore throat for a few days. Such, &nbsp; however, was not the case, and with your permission, I will relate exactly what did happen, Dr Kennedy called at our private residence and asked to see Miss Rach?e Joy, but was informed by Mrs Joy that she had gone to the shop. On his way to the shop I met Dr Kennedy near tho oil room, and he asked me about my daughter ; and whether I had any objection to his examining her throat. I replied that he was at liberty to do so, and accompanied him to the shop. &nbsp; When we arrived there I found that my daughter had returned to the house, and I asked Dr Kennedy to wait in the office for a moment while I went to bring the girl. At this the doctor remarked something about people trying to hide cases of dip...

CORRESPONDENCE. While being desirous of affording every facility for the ventilation of matters of public in- terest,we do not necessarily endorse, nor do we hold ourselves responsible for opinions expressed by our correspondents — ED T.E. DR. KENNEDY'S REPORT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS. SIR,— I was greatly surprised on reading Dr Kennedy's report in your last issue, in reference to the outbreak of diphtheria, and which would lead people to believe that I withheld infor- mation from the health officer. As a &nbsp; matter of fact, I supplied all the &nbsp; information possible, and did not con- ceal anything. The assertion that I reported that my little boy contracted paralysis through having antitoxin injected was totally incorrect, as the &nbsp; &nbsp; boy, who was attended by Drs. Horgan and Ratz, was not even treated for diphtheria. I distinctly told Dr Kennedy that the other two boys had several lots of antitoxin injected, and also related what...
DOOKIE AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 22 January 1914
DOOKIE AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. The following is an extract from the monthly (December) report by the Principal of the Dookie Agricultural College (Mr Pye) :— The rainfall for the month amouuts to 81 points, and the total rainfall for the year 1913 totals 20.09 inches. The average rainfall for the last 33 years to the end of 1913 is 21.10 inches. The work for the month was mainly confined to harvesting operations. Al- though the general average returns will be good they will not come up to expectations. The wind storms occasionally experienced during the month mitigated to some extent in obtaining full returns, especially in respect to the barley plots. In the experimental fields I have looked through about 3,000 of the plots and selected plants for next season's stud sowing. A little later on other selections will be made of those varieties of wheat that' show good holding powers of grain compatible with good harvesting qualities. The stripping and winnowing of the drilled plots have ...

BOWEYA. The many friends throughout the district of Mr E. J.

Harvest operations are drawing to a close, and the yield in this district, almost without exception, are the heaviest since the land was settled on. The fallowed land went from 7½ to 11½ bags. &nbsp;
THE WATER DIVERSION TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 22 January 1914
THE WATER DIVERSION TROUBLE. At the recent meeting of the Nu- murkah Waterworks Trust, a letter was received from the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission (similar to that dealt with at the last meeting of the Tungamah Trust), suggesting that the various watercourses be im- proved, or extending the system of distribution by channels. According to the " Numurkah Leader," the fol- lowing discussion took place :— The Chairman said reeds had been cut to assist the flow, which cost them £15, but they did not appear to get that amount of water. He thought, if there was waste it must he in the other trust. The engineer said the supply said to be forwarded did not reach beyond Wunghnu and Numurkah. When they visited Casey's the amount of water was coming down that they were entitled to, but when they came to the Goorambat, and the other weir, the water was not flowing over those weirs in the same proportion ; it was practi- cally only a dribble. If the 40 feet of water had been allowed ...
HISTORY OF THE SAW. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 22 January 1914
HISTORY OF THE SAW. The earliest tool that has been traced in Egyptian history is the saw. It was found first, in the form of a notched bronze knife in the third dynasty, or about five thousand years before the Christian era, and was followed in the fourth and fifth dynasties by large- toothed saws, which were used by car- penters : but there are no dated speci- mens until the seventh Century before the Christian era, when the Assyrians used iron saws. The first knives on record were made out of flint, and were in fact, saws with minute teeth. They probably were used for cutting up &nbsp; animals, as the teeth would break away even on soft wood. Rasps, which are &nbsp; but a form of saw, were first made of sheets of bronze punched and coiled round, but the Assyrians in the sev- enth century used the straight rasp &nbsp; made of iron similar to the modern type. Wife : The doctor says I need a change of climate. Husband : Well, the sky looks as if we'd have it ...
