A REGAL ROASTING. We arc frequently tcld that Her Majesty Otiecn ?.Jary is an indefatig able Unit tor, and that she has always work of this kind near at hand, and usually busies herself with it when she is at home with li ?r attendants or intiimate friends.

How Rubber was Discovered. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 31 March 1914

How Rubber was Dis covered. -♦ Monsieur de la Condamine, a French savant, was travelling in 171:3, in Ecuador, South America, with an expedition ' sent out to measure a degree of the meridian for scientific purposes. He kept a journal, and the following entry is dated July 11 : In the forests of Quito there flows a kind of resin which is called "cahuchu.'-' When fresh it can be moulded into any form. It is impervious to rain. He further describes how the na tives used it for making a special kind of syringe, and in April, 1745, when he had returned from his jour ney, lie presented a sample of "cahuchu" to the Academy ofScience.5 in l'aris. The French word for rubber—caoutchouc—is simply a cor ruption of this Indian name. - La Condamine treated the pro duct as a mere vegetable curiosity. It was Fresneau, a French engineer, who first studied and utilised the substance. He embarked for Gui ana with a model of the fruit, and a sketch of the leaf. He rowed along the rivers, offered the n...

'"•W A Uganda Rubber Estate * I am on a coffee and rubber es tate in Uganda. The other mom ing when 1 went to send the na tives so their various duties for tiie day, I stuv that there was some thing the matter, as the men did not yet hold of their tools and go olT to their allotted place 011 the plantation. At last one of them ' (who had been chosen as spokes- 1 man) came forward, and said that | they all refused to work unless a certain man, who had only been set to work the day before, was sent away. I learned that the man in question had somehow been credited with having the power to make a I pei-son ill or even of killing him, by simply willing it. It so happened that n native cm ployed by us had died the night ' previously, and; of course, this per son with the evil reputation was blamed. We argued with the men, b'ut they were firm. Either he must go or Ihcy all would go. The situation was ridiculous, but the work had to be done, and the strik ers eventually hail their way. i'o...

A Famous Windmill. It is very seldom that so homely an object as a windmill lias great ness thrust upon it. There is a windmill at Hans Souce, near L'ots dum, however, that enjoys this rare honour. Frederick the (ireat desired to take the mill down in order that ho might enlarge the gar dens round his palace, vhi.-h on that side were rather cramped. Hut the dusty miller refused to al low the building to be removed, IV ing asked whether the King might not take it by force, lie stoutly re plied that in that case he should appeal to the miller's spirit, aud pursued the matter no furlh'jr. It was a very small mill then, but was rebuilt on a larger s;aie at a later date. During the reign of Frederick Wil liam IV. the miller, prcsse I for money, offered to sell the mill to the King, but ho declined to take advantage of the poor man's dilli c.ulties, and generously helped him to get over his troubles without losing his property.
