Exit—The Fly. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 20 May 1915

Exit-The Fly, Health and comfort are impossible without effective sanitation and a formidable array of diseases are di rectly attributable to the agency of flies. In a country like ' Australia, where climatically we are particular ly liable to suffer from the insect post ami its attendant horrors, more system and enthusiasm should be pxerciscd in the extermination of the nuisance. As usual in progressive movements, America lias set the ex ample to other countries, by estab lishing an energetic and numerically strong corps of juvenile sanitary police, who have undertaken a cru sade against filth, which is. the quickest way to destroy flies and di sease germs. An anti-fly commission inaugurated by a lady doctor who is the biology instructor at the Cleve land Normal Training School, took the matter in hand, and through its agency Cleveland has been practical ly cleared of flies. She drew public attention to the evils which the mi crobe distributing house-fly brings ; and she emphasised...

Marching Records. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 20 May 1915

Marching Records British infantry li ive the reputa tion for excelling the infani.ij of all othci* armies in the rate of march ing and staving powers. So marked has been the improvement since the South African War that the stand ards of time and distance set forth in the manuals are now regarded in many quarters as minima. Fifteen miles a day was regarded a few years ago as a good average for a large column ; twenty-live for a small body of seasoned men. In the grand autumn manoeuvres of lM'J, when a test was made of British marching ability, the 1st In fantry Urigade covered thirty miles in one d-iy, and the 2nd and 3rd In fantry Brigades, hampered by artil lery, twenty-throe miles. The 5th and Gth Infantry Brigades covered thirty-one miles ; the First Devon shire. Regiment thirty-five miles, ;u\4 the 1st Cheshire Regiment thirty three miles. The Service equipment carried on this occaBion averaged GOlb. in weight.

Foriegn Goods Or Empire Goods. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 20 May 1915

Foriegn Goods Or Empire Goods. Is the condition of things in the matter of commerce to continue after the war as it was in the be ginning between Australia and Germany, or is some special effort to be made to realize the full possibilities of the Commonwealth and the Empire as a whole? An empire lives, and can only live, in virtu re of its ability to maintain and defend itself. Are we to sit down in quiet contemplation and trust in the future (which somo onc elsewill make for us) while our own industries languish and those of a fundamentally enemy country are bolstered up? That is the situation with which we are faced. Several remedies have been suggested-a surtax on German goods, a protective trariff, a boycott on German productions. It matters little, so long as the end is attained--which is an Aus tralian market for Australian goods, our own fullest self realis ation as a nation and as a segment of the Empire. Both phases of that object are consulted in our developing our own res...

IN SILENT PLACES. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 20 May 1915

FB SILENT PLACES. + The Antarctic Expedition led by Sir Earnest Shackleton leaves noth ing to bo desired in the way of equipment. The able leader carefully applied the knowledge pained by other Antarctic explorers, and every thing possible has been done to safe guard the expedition against disas ter. Arctic dog sledges have super seded manhaulage as a means of transport, and are regarded ns a more practical and a safer method. Antarctic travelling is limited to the period between October and April. Captain Scott, in his last expedition, found that by the middle of March the weather was unfavour able and seriously, interfered with travelling. A very important con sideration, therefore, of all I'olar ex peditions is pace ; and this depends on the number and quality of dogs, the .weight and distribution <>! the equipment and the management oi the uuimals. The Shackleton expedition has 10"i (Jogs at its disposal, including some .teams obtainable through the Hud sou Bay Com...

LAND AND WATER CYCLE. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 20 May 1915

LAND AND WATER CYCLE. France held not long ago a watci gala, iu which was a competition for land and water cycles, but these ma chines could not be used on water until they wcro partly dismantled. It has been left to an Englishman, H. G. Belbin, a Battcrsea working man, to inveDt a machine that can be ridden on land as well as water without any adjustment. It is sup ported in the water by two hollow wooden floats, treated inside with tar to'.render them waterproof, which are adjusted by means of ribs fas tened to a horizontal bar on the frame, juat far enough apart to al low of free pedalling movement, and high enough to keep clear .of the ground when ridden on land. The driving power is supplied as on an ordinary cycle for land riding, and on water by an endless chain run ning over the driving wheel and on to a projecting framework to a gear ing which drives a small two-bladed propeller. The steering is controlled by a shaped piece of metal fastened to the front forks, one rib on e...

GERMAN NAVY'S FIRST DEFEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 20 May 1915

GERMAN NAVY'S FIRST DEFEAT. That the German navy received its first defeat from a handful of pirates is a fact that must be known to very few people. Here are particulars of the interesting event. In the spring of 1S5G a Prussian merchantman was captured by Riff pirates, and, 011 complaint being made to Berlin, four warships were despatched to Morocco to punish the offenders. The casti gation, however, proved easier to order than to administer. So well was the coast guarded that the "avengers" found considerable diili culty in getting near the enemy. At length, however, a landing was ef fected near Thes-Forcas, and an at tack made upon a itifT stronghold. The result proved disastrous to the Germans, who, after less than an hour's fighting, were completely rout ed and sent flying back to their ships. This engagement was the first entered into by the then newly constituted Prussian navy, and it is worthy of note that eight years later the plucky Danes swept the same ships off the seas...

Protection Of Haystacks. Destruction Of Mice. Mr T. K.

I mean that it de pends upon tho mail that wants to use it. I have used some tons in rabbit extermination in the Eastern : States, so I am -writing from experience. In the first place, the only safe place to keep it is away from dwelling? and buildings. Bisulphide of carDon gas is a high explosive and should only be used by a person through ly acquainted with it. It is too dangerous to use about haystacks.

Katamatite and District. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 20 May 1915

IKatamatite and District. I (From Oar Repr^^'ve). A most opportune rain has fallen, over two inches being re corded here. Farmers and every body concerned are jubilant, as relief should be experienced in the chaff market, for tilling opera tions are almost completed. The output of chaff ^t the local rail way station during last week was the highest on record, the amount being equivalent to £1100 for the six day3. However, the critical time is over, and the grain which was thought to have rotted in tho ground, has survived the dry spell, and is now making rapid growth. Mrs Eliason,of Katamatite, has just received word that her son Victor, who left for the front with the first contingent, has been wounded, whilst taking part in tho fighting at the Dardanelles. There, was a large congregation at the Methodist Church on Sun day evening when it was an nounced that the first of a series of lantern services would be held. Rev. W. H.

The Fight of Alma's heights. ? i Sixty years ago soldiers of Britain and France, lighting side by side, achieved one of the most brilliant victories in the annals of vrar. Never has the valiant fighting spirit of the British troops been better shown than when, on Septemher 20th 1854, they waded through the Rivor Alma, amidst a shower ?'"?of bullets, fought their way up the precipitous banks on the other side of the river, and, having burst through the dense un dergrowth of vineyarJs, drove back the Russians, who were led by Prince Menschikoft. Our troops were led by Lord Rag Ian, and the French by Marshal St. Arnaud. Three thousand three hun dred of the Allies were killed and wounded, a heavy loss when one con siders that the British forces num bered only about 27,000 and the French 30,000. This was the first battle of the Crimean War, and even then our troops, who had been sent without any proper commissariat arrangements, were half-clad and half-fed. It was in this battle that the...
