TOY FILMS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 3 July 1914
TOY FILMS. Ffcrhaps you have been puzzled over the making thoso mechanical toy pictures, showing dolls, Teddy bears, and toy cats apparently alive and doing all manner of re markable things I Such films require infinite pi Menco and plenty of time to manu facture. The, dolls ore arranged on a table and the camera faces them. The producer moves n doll's left, foot forward and takes one photo graph of it, then advances its right foot and photographs the scene again, repeating this several times. The result is that the doll appears to bo walking of itn ouJn nrcurd. Ono mechanical toy film being shown at, picture theatres depicts cavalry, infantry, artillery, and aero planes in a battle, and it took ten months of continuous work to complete. More than: 200,000 sepa rate changes of position were neces sary.

Indian Heraldics. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 3 July 1914
Indian Heraldics. --.-- .. where on the I'acific const. They represent 1hc family hnral dics of the Siwash or Const. In dians, and every house has its own totem pole, consisting- of figures of birds and nnimals anil other monstrosities rudely carved in wood and quaintly coloured. The top figure represents the crcst of tho owner of tho house, the one beneath it that of his wife, nnd the re maining ones those of his wife's relatives. As a rule, there are only three or four figures carved on a totem, and only the totems of the greatest chiefs have six figures car ved on them. This custom seems to havo origi nated in the transmigra I ory idea of tho souls of men passing into tho forms of birds and animals, and is interesting ns showing that the In dians had some faint idea of a supernatural power.

How Kipling was Inter viewed in America. In Chicago, considerably wore than twenty years ago, * °bl.n,n^ a chance interview from 1\u&lt;1-)"rd Kipling. At that time Kipling, who was just beginning to achieve fame through his 'Tinill 'la es from the Hills" and " Soldiers, Three," had little use for this country. For one thing, he had tried to irnVe a living with his pen in San Francisco, and had Jailed.

He was on his way from Australia to England. shipboard he had made up his mmd that he would do no talking or newspapers _when ly"'ridiculous^ imaginary interviews, and tliey put Kipling in .1 very foolish light. The same thing hap pened in Seattle, Cheyenne, JVnvpr, Omaha, and other cities where he stopped on his leisurely progress eastward. Nowhere had he seen 1 one reporter. Hut everywhere he was quoted absurdly and pompously, the "interviews" reeking with fatuous, ...

WHY LEAFY POTATO PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 3 July 1914
WHY LKAFY POTATO PLANTS. Tho most nutritive part of the po tato. th.? part that gives to the po tato its excellent, flavour, is the part that co.itains the greatest number of starch cells. If anyone will cut a Po tato through the middle he will no tice that the potato substance is not homogeneous. Around the outside of the potato, just beneath the skin, i a layer, separated from the inner lajer by a vascular semi-fibrous par tition that is visible on closa exami nation. This outer layer is called the corticel, and contains most ot the starch of the potato. The best pota toes have this corticel layer thick instead-of thin-that is, have more starch than the others. The principal chemical element of starch is carbon. The potato plant 1 gets all of its carbon from the air through the leaves, none of it from the soil. The leaves have the power to dissociate the carbon from the carbon dioxide in the air, and store niucb of tliifi carbon in t. r ^'!l\')'^r j sible for the plant to utilise ...
