Huon Telephone Service. COMPLAINTS REGARDING CON- GESTION. THE DEPARTMENT'S REPLY. &nbsp; Some weeks ago reference was made to the inadequacy of the facilities provided for telephonic communication between the Huon and Hobart, and the same matter was brought under the notice of the Deputy Postmaster-General (Mr H. L. D'Emden) by Mr H. Howard, of Franklin. It was pointed out that as a result of the congestion that occurred owing to the two lines being insufficient &nbsp; &nbsp; to cope with the calls made upon them business people in all parts of the Huon, and particularly in Lovett, Huonville, Franklin, and Geeveston, where the &nbsp; traffic is heaviest, were subjected to con- siderable inconvenience and annoyance &nbsp; by the frequent delays that occurred in &nbsp; effecting connection with the capital. &nbsp; Complaint was also made regarding the practice of a number of officers allowing &nbsp; "tooting" over the li...

CAVE FURNISHED LIKE A PALACE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
CAVE FURNISHED LIKE A .PALACE. For several years - past- a very wealthy but eccentric American far mer has been using a cave as a dwell ing house. It is probably the most palatial cave in the world, and is fit ted up with all modern conveniences, including hot and cold water, electric fans, electric lights, and steam heat. He discovered -the cave at the top of a mountain 1700 ft. high. It is 78 ft. long by 25 ft. wide, and 32 ft. high; The walls are of beau tiful granite,- which has been hand somely polished. The ceiling is 40 ft. thick. The front of the cave is of glass, which the owner and occupant put. in, together with hardwood floors. The flues for the cooking range pass out through the mouth of the cave® and extend outward a ? distance of nearly 40 ft. Movable screens permit the increase and reduction of rooms at the pleasure of the occupants. A fine spring at the top of the moun tain furnishes water through a pri vate system of waterworks. This novel dwelling was completed ab...
FREDERICK WILLIAM'S GIANT GRENADIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
FREDERICK WILLIAM'S GIANT GRENADIERS. There is a tragic story- of the kid napping of a certain carpenter at Julich by King Frederick of Prussia's recruiting officers. While passing through the little town of Julich, in Prussian Rhineland, one of the veteran spies saw a very tali carpenter. A brief conversation with the young man soon convinced the rascally recruiter tnat it would be useless to attempt persuasion or bribes; so, giving out that he was a trader, he asked- the workman to make him a very long box. On calling a couple of days later he expressed the opinion that the chest was not six feet eight long. 'Oh, I'll soon settle that,' re sponded the carpenter. 'Why, I'm six feet six inches myself, and I'll guarantee I can easily get into the box.' As Hompesch, the sham mer chant, still expressed doubts as to the^ length of the box, the unsuspecting carpenter- laid himself down in it. when the-recruiter promptly placed the lid on, and before the surprised work man could effect hi...
THE SCORCHING DAY, Or Hints About the Working of Beasts of Burden in the Summer Heat. An Appeal by the Victorian Society for the Protection of Animals. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
THE SCORCHING DAY, Or Hints About the Working of Beasts of Burden in the Summer Heat. An Appeal by the Victorian Society for the Protection of Animals. We all feel how a scorching day tries us. Here are some hints which the man who can think, arid will think about his beast, will note for all days, but especially for the scorching day: 1. On the scorching day pay special attention to the harness. -Unless it fits well and is kept sweet and clean, the dust and dirt acting on the sweat induces galls and sores. See that it is washed clean in the morning, and -be sure that it is quite' dry before it is put on; also look that the horse's shoes are note out of position, pressing on the sole, so as to aggravate or cause 'a corn. 2. Provide a sunshade for your horse's head, extendirig a few inches over the forehead, and along the neck. The horse is liable to suffer congestion of the brain, and other ills, from the fierce rays of the sun. And the sha'de over his head and eyes helps him to do ...
A Family Doctor Tells This Story. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
A Family Doctor Tells This Story. A worthy lady of Liverpool, who does not keep pace with the times, was' the heroine of a recent incident, the humor of which will be apparent to everybody else. There had been a surgical operation in the house, which was happily over. Sometime after the doctor had' gone, the mistress of the house discovered on a table what she took to be one of the surgical instru ments, inadvertently left behind. She 'first carefully cleansed the nickel-plated instrument with a 'solu- tion of carbolic' acid and water, then rubbed it dry with a flannel cloth, wrapped it up, and sent a servant with it to the doctor. With it she sent this note: — 'Dear Doctor, — When you were at the house yesterday you were so un fortunate as to mislay one of your surgical instruments. I have taken good care of it, and return it by mes senger. — I' am yours very truly, ? ' Before long the messenger came back with the same parcel, a little rumpled by opening, and with it brought this n...
THE PHANTOM HAND. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
THE PHANTOM HAND. I sat alone in the park at Deepdale reading a fevorite book. Deepdale, the country seat of my uncle, Norman French, was a beautiful place with its trim lawns and Dleasant nark. I had come from Cambridge for my Christmas vacation, as usual, -and aunt ^nd cousin had made me welcome, of course; but, after all, 'I felt that some thing was lacking in their greeting. They were hardly the same as when uncle was living, I thought; yet I could not define the missing feature. An in definable strangeness had come be tween me and Deepdale, however.' . Uncle had been found dead in the park some six months previous, whither he had gone for a walk. He was lying at the foot of a tree life less and cold, with his limbs drawn up, his face contorted as if in extreme agony, and his arms thrown over his head, with the fingers clutching the sere grass. Being old and somewhat ailing, it is supposed that he died in a fit. I was his favorite nephew, he having paid for iriy education at col...
LIGHTHOUSE PERILS. EDDYSTONE KEEPER RELIEVED AFTER TWO WEEKS' DELAY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
LIGHTHOUSE PERILS. EDDYSTONE KEEPER RELIEVED ; AFTER TWO WEEKS' DELAY. ' _ ( . The stormy weather in the English Channel in the past few weeks greatly interfered with the regular relief of the . lighthouse men (says ' Lloyd's Weekly'). There was, in fact, a sensational scene at tho relief at the Eddvstone. where the jagged rooks, fourteen miles from Ply mouth, rising sheer out of forty fathoms of water, got the full force of the Atlantic waves. - Early last month, the wind having ~ \ lulled, it was decided to attempt the relief which was overdue by a fortnight. . There are four keepers in the Eddystone during the winter, and one is relieved every month, so that the men serve three months . in the tower and one ashore. The powerful steam tug. Boar hound was chartered for the trip, and a whaler built surf boat was towed out. On arriying off the rocks a terrible sea was found to be running. The lighthouse keepers flung into the w a large oil can, to which was attached . a wire rope.' T...
HOW TO ACQUIRE GRACE OF MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
HOW TO ACQUIRE GRACE OF MOVEMENT. Exercise is the surest metliod of obtaining a graceful carriage, for by exercising all our muscles we gain a good control over ' their voluntary movements. Too often is the 'tout ensemble' of a pretty woman spoilt by stooping shoulders, a contracted chest, or a careless, slouching gait. Now, by devoting a little of our spare time every day to some physical ex ercises these same evils may be overcome. Many and various are the forms of calisthenics, as these exer cises are called. We are all familiar with the simple, but nevertheless beneficial, exercises for the arms, The daily use of dumbbells will strengthen all the muscles of the arms and chest, and at the same time promote a free circulation of the blood. Then there is what is known as the expander. This is formed of a strip of the very strongest kind of elastic, with loops or handles at each end to hold. It can easily be made, at home. It should be held in both hands and be slowly expanded and p...

DR. GRAHAM'S WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
DR. GRAHAM'S WIFE. By Philip Beaufoy. 'Five years ago to-night!' Dr. 'Basil Granam, M.D., sat beside ^the waning fire in his big study, and _ peered into the ruddy depths. What did he see that caused him to gaze * u.ere with such intent eyes? He saw a house in a London street, and within that' house a girl — sweet, winsome, adorable, lie saw a man at her feet, heard him murmur words or love, heard her whisper 'Yos,' whilst the man's eyes lighted up with inef ' liable joy. The embers fell, and another pic ture burned into the doctor's brain. He saw another house in another street— desolate, empty, grief-stricken — a house whence the woman had flown, leaving black sorrow and tears behind her. And Basil Graham knew that the man was himself, her broken hearted husband. Five years ago she had vanished from his home after a brief wedded life. She had gone without a word of explanation, and he had been forced to the bitter conclusion that she hitu tlown with some man for whom she had conce...

Water-Power Scheme in the Huon. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 21 May 1910
Water-Power Scheme in the Huon. A MATTER that should receive the earnest attention of every resident of the Huon, and espe cially orchardists, insomuch as it is uKeiy to comer enormous benefits upon them if material ised, is to be brought before the Huon Municipal Council at its next meeting. It is a motion to be mo^ed by Councillor Casey re lating to the water-power obtain able in the upper reaches of the. Huon River being harnessed up and converted to commercial use. The motion, which merely recommends that the Council request the Government to send an expert to the locality named to ' examine and report upon the suitability of the upper part of the Huon River for the genera tion of electric power,' opens up a question of vital moment to the district-as a whole. That there is a tremendous power 'there waiting to be harnessed up is indisputable, as we think all who know the locality will readily admit, but still the suggestion that expert advice should be obtained upon it is a wise...
