BELL-HINGING RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
BELL-HINGING RECORD. A . bell-ringing record which has stood for 130 years was beaten the other day at Ashton-under-L.yno Parish Church by a team of cam panologists under the conduetorship of Mr. Samuel Wood. The Ashton ringers decided some time ago to attempt to -beat the treble bob royal record on ten bells of 12,000 changes which was accomplished at Shoreditih in 17S4. .Beginning their task at seven o'clock in the morning the ringers succeeded in their feat, which they carried out in nine hours thirty-four minutes. The peal reached nearly 1 d,000 changes. The sagacity of a horse belonging to a Captain Watson, of Ardow, furnishes the "Scotsman " with a good story. The horse had been graz ing in a field for some time, and had last a shoe. Seemingly he felt the loss of his usual metal support, and, managing to get out of the field, he. travelled a con siderable distance to Porvaig. on the north-west of Mull. The road he took passes the village smithy, and the blacksmith was astonish...
THE CRICKET-BAT'S TASK. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
THE CRICKET-BAT'S TASK. Twelve months at least should be allowed for the "seasoning" of a high-grade crickct-bat-that is, from -the time it is roughly shaped. In the final stage of its manufac ture the surface of the blade is subjected to great pressure by means of special machinery. Why is all this necessary ? Because a hat has to withstand tremen dous blows. An .interesting experiment once car ried out at Woolwich Arsenal showed that C. T. B. Turner, the great Australian t>owler, could bowl a ball at the pace of eighty-one feet a second, and there have been plenty of bowlers faster than "The. Demon.'-' However, a. tolerably simple ma thematical calculation shows that a cricket-ball travelling at this rate and striking- a stationary bat will exert a pressure equal to about S71b. at the point of impact. But, of course, a bat is" not .al ways stationary, arid when it is swung against the ball, the pres sure on the bat is enormously in creased. Here, accurate calculations is-difR c...

Is the Sun Losing Mass? [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
Is the Sun Losing P/lass ? . -4 The' work of Einstein on the Principle" of' Kelativitv shows that a body which radiates energy loses a portion of its mass depending on the energy radiated. It follows that the sun, which continually me diates euergy, is constantly losing mass. M. J. Bosler has calculat ed that the sun loses a mass equal to that of our earth inr thirty mil lion-years. If it l>e -assumed that the mass thus lost ; is; gravitational mass, it follows -that the length of the year incfeases by six -seconds in a million years, and that in the same time the mean longitude of the earUfcr^is -affected in such a way as to produce .a variation of one tenth of a year, i:e., a retardation of thirty-six days in-the seasons. Such variations are too minute to be ob servable. In -stellar -systems pos sessing- a higher temperature ' the: ef fect would be much more marked; for-tho energy radiated by a body varies : as the fourth power of its absolute . temperature. If, as Nordmann bel...

SEASICKNESS. HOW IT MAY BE PREVENTED. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
SEASICKNESS. HOW IT MAY BE TREVESrUD. There arc nearly as many r&lt;sm&lt;v dies for nial do mor us thsro lire for a cold in the head; and any one will know what that moans. But as the old saying has it," " one man's meat is another man's poi son." And so, because a' remedy is efficacious with one, it docs t>ot fcilo'w that It will prove success ful with, another. The ino:'al of which is, if one prescription doe? not cure, "try'another. Jn the "first..:place, remember that the head and the stomr,:h 8«e m lruch in sympathy with ea;h other ?that whatever affects one will surely influence the other ; so that the worst possible thing you can do is to make up your mind beforehand that you are certain to be ill. That is the very way to produce the head ache and nausea, which is the pre cursor of seasickness. As far as prevention goes, t-he ^sensible.glan -is to diet oneself for two or three days ?before embarking, -keeping to plain, wholesome food, and neither eating or...

The Eccentric Clubs of New York. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
The Eccentric Clubs of iiew York. The clubs of New York are in many cases novel and eccentric _ in character. There is, for instance, the Tenderloin. Tenderloin is the nickname of a district of rather un savoury' reputation between Four teenth and Forty-second Streets. Fart of it is thickly inhabited by coloured people ; another part con tains most of the theatres ; and in the heart of it, established in a tumble-down wooden shanty, which was once known as " Kel Pot," is the Tenderloin Club. It was formerly a haunt of thieves; it now numbers among its members some of the most distinguished authors, artists, musicians, doctors, and lawyers in the city ; but it still retains many of the internal characteristics of a thieves' kitchen. The floors are sanded or saw dusted ; the furniture is rude in the extreme ; and there is an ostenta tious absence of comfort ; and short pipes and stone mugs ot beer are | the order of the evening. Above i the entrance is the motto, " Who enters here lea...
THEREFORE, ADVERTISE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
THEREFORE, ADVERTISE. The following- paragraph from an article by Andrew Lang may prove profitably suggestive to those who have wares to sell and are shy about advertising them "When a goose lays an egg." said Mr. Lang, "she just- waddles off ris if she was ashamed of it-because j she is a goose. When a hen lays j an egg-ah, she calls heaven and j earth to witness it. The hen is | a natural-born advertiser. Hence the demand for hen' eggs exceeds ] the demand for goose eggs, and. the | hen has all the business she can at- I tead to." j
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. HIS HUNDREDTH HUNDRED. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
«a» FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. . * HIS HUNDREDTH HUNDRED. Tom Raj-ward succeeded in. -scor ing his hundredth century in first class cricket, and thereby robbed Dr. W. Q. Grace of the distinction of being: the only cricketer able to claim this honour. Dr. W. G, Grace began playing . first-class cricket in 1865, but it was not until 1895 that tie made his hundredth hundred. Hay ward accomplished the feat in his twenty first season. But then, of course, being n younger man, he had many moro opportunities owing to the fact that the first-class fixture list has been greatly extended during recent years. 1 Hay ward's greatest season undoubt edly was 1906, though probably the finest innings ho ever played Vas the 130 he made against Australia at Manchester, in 1899,
Drilling Holes in Glass. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
Drilling Holes in Glass. Sccure an old three-cornered file the size of a hole desired in the plate -and grind two sides of it to a point as shown in Fig. 1. This file can be put in, held arid turned the same as a bit in an I ordinary carpenter's brace. j Lay the glass on a smooth sur^ face with a small piece of cloth under the place where .the hole is to be- drilled. Take some soft putty Drilling Class and make a small ring around on the glass (Fig. 2) and fill the cup like place with turpentine.

THE FARM SEPARATOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914
THE FARM SEPARATOR. The farm separator has come to stay, consequently the conditions un der which the machine does its clean est work should be understood. , Even temperature and even speed, are imperative if -we would do the best work. Separators should be checked occasionally in their work so as to guard against a loss of fat. Formerly an average loss of .12 to .15 fat left in skim-milk was consid ered fairly good. At the present tim^ a loss of over .5 is thought bad. It pays to watch closely, the separator. It must be borne in mind that a slight loss in skimming reaches a prodigious amount in the course of a year. , There is no machine used on the farm as much as the hand separator; hence, the importance of securing a good one and keeping it in the best of order. i Separate the cream from the milk. . at a consistency producing approxi mately about ten gallons of cre3m from every hundred gallons of miR. Cool the cream immediately after the separation. Tanks of cold water are ordin...
THE DAIRY. 27 COWS NET OWNER £160 IN ONE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914
THE DAIRY. 1 27 COWS NET OWNER £160 IN ONfi MONTH. j It was recently my pleasure, as re presentative of the Oklahoma Agri cultural College, to supervise the testing of five cows in the Americas Jersey. Cattle Club's Register of Mer it, Nowata County, Oklahoma. This Jersey herd which consists of soni; thirty head of cows and an equai number of calves and yearlings, i£ recognised as one of the best in Okla homa, and with its strain of good producing show animals will no doubt very shortly rank with the best Jersey farms in America. At the head of this herd is Finan cial Countess's Lad, who was grand champion bull at the 1912 Iowa Dairy Cattle Congress. This was the largest and most strongly contested dairy cattle show ever held in Amer ica. In selecting Financial Countess's Lad, Mr. Jones obtained a bull that is not onlj a great show animal, but one that is also a prepotent breeder. His dam, Financial Countess, on? of the greatest Jersey cows ever impor ted, made 935rb. 10oz. butter i...
A South Pacific Echo. REMINISCENCES OF "EARLY DAYS" WITH AN "OLDTIMER." [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914
A South Pacific Echo* REMINISCENCES OF " EARLY DAYS" WITH AN " OLD TIMER." An elderly, retired South Seals land trader has supplied some in eiestnig information regarding the trade customs of the Pacific Is landers in the early days. "I have no objection," ho remark ed, '-to your making use of my re marks, as long as you withhold Jiiv name, as I do not wish to bo drawn into any controversy, since you plainly see, I too old for that sort of thing now." On being assured that his wish would be respected, ho proceeded to nai rate the following :-"Before we whitemen came to the Islands to trade, the ' niggers' did not have many wants, but after our arrival on the scene their requirements underwent, a rapid change. Most of them suddenly discovered that jows' harps, tobacco, medicines, china arm bracelets, and especially li\e dogs, were absolute necessities of life. And I guess it was not for us to ' wade in' and alter their views." THE DOG " STUNT." "But why were live dogs in such special...
THE JUDGE WHO DIDN'T JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914
THE JUDGE WHO DIDN'T JOKE. The funny sayings of a judge who never joked form one of the finest collections of judicial humour ever published. This is " Arabiniana," a selection of the dicta of Sergeant William Arabin, who .sat as a judge at the Old Iiailey iron; 18-30 to IS.'if. For instance, his remark to counsel : "If you can show precisely at what moment the ort'ence was com mitted. and prose that the prisoner was not there when he did it, he i could not possibly have done it." And he sagely added, as an after thought : "We cannot divest oursel ves of common-sense in a Court of -Justice." Another axiom he delivered him- i self of lias been fathered on man\* oilier occupants of the J3ench : " !f ever there was a case of clearer evidence than ' this case, this case is that case."
