Bounteous Rainfall. BEST FOR MANY MONTHS. THE WHOLE ASPECT CHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 20 May 1915

Bounteous Rainfall. !BEST FOR MANY MONTHS. THE WHOLE ASPECT CHANGES. During the past 18 months the people of Australia lias had to face the most serious problem of their time-a drought almost uni versal. This year-and nearly five months of it has gone-was beginning to wear an aspect cal culated to make the most opti mistic quail. Practically no rain had fallen, the seed had been sown, and in many paddocks had germinated and got above ground, but there was nothing to help it along. Stock were costing their owners dearly to koep alive, and it was common to hear of people paying .£20 a week for feed. But what a great change has come over the country since tho copious rains of last week. Grass and crops are making remarkable headway, and the anxiety for the future prospects of the season has been dispelled. Locally the fall was about TWO inches, and what this means to the district no one could adequately describe, so we content ourselves with saying that where it was all gloom and wonde...

THE LADY ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 27 May 1915

THE LADY ADVERTISER. Nowadays there is no room in the world of working women for shirkers and luck counts for little or nothing in her ultimate success. Modern con ditions have ordained that in most of the professions women command the same fees as men, and it is only the competent persevering woman c£ ability who can raise herself above the ruck and reach the goal. Social influence and pushing may help her a.few steps along the way, but i? she "wins through" it will bo only by her own efforts and her adequacy. This comparatively new found business ability and acumen is imboding all branches of what used to be considered to be man's sole province, and we are constantly finding her opening up fresh fields for her enterprise. The advertising world has begun to feel the weight of feminine influence. Only the ig norant belittle the power of adver tisement. Statesmen and politici ans realise that even in national af fairs this modern business method must be resorted to and we all must ad...

WOMAN'S WORLD. EUGENICS. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 27 May 1915

W0 Til A t;J' S WORLD. -f - ECtlENICS. One hears and rends so much ol eugenics nowadays that it is a par donable mistakes to suppose that the science is one which has grown from inodorn enlightenment and thought. .Such. however, is not a fact, for the duty of improving the race has always been recognised in the Jewish religion, and many of their beliefs have been founded on this ideal. The aim of eugenics is "to check the birthrate of the unfit arid,to fur ther the productivity . of the fit by early marriage and the rearing of healthful children." The founder of the Jewish race, Abraham, recognised tiic importance of inherited qualities, and insisted that the wife of his only and beloved son Isaac should not come from the daughters of the Canaauites, but from a superior stock. The Midrash states that Eliezer of fered his daughter to Isaac, but. Abraham sternly rebuked him thus : "Thou art cursed and my son is blessed, and it does not behove the cursed to mate with the blessed and th...

A MAN WHO CANNOT FORGET. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 27 May 1915

A MAN WHO CANNOT FORGET. 'H man has been unearthed in Tor onto whose memory is ol the most remarkable sort. This man, whose name is McNair, is able of! hand to you the sort ot weather there on any particular day ot the jiirt twenty years or so. The pro caw, ho far as has been ascertained the scientists who have examined the man, is that he makes a mental picture of the weather, fair or stormy, cold or warm, as it may happen, and tacking it to the day of the week and the month, Btores it away in his brain. On being applied to, we will say, as to the weather on August 30th, 1899, McNair imme diately unfolds his little packagc of information which he haB stored .way somewhere in his head, and an ?wars correctly, according to the data compiled at the Observatory, adding to it the information that th« 30th fell on Friday, or whatever day it happened to be.

New Torpedo-Shell. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 27 May 1915

New Torpedo-Shell. If in actual warfare all that is claimed for it is realises, an inven tion just submitted to the French admiralty will have an important >fTect on modern naval warfare. It takes the form of a projectile simi lar in many respects both to a tor pedo and a shell. When fired from 3ithor a torpedo tube or a 12in. gun t. skims the surface of the water like a flat pebble and has a range of aearly ten miles. Containing a ;harge suflicient to destroy a Dread nought, it can be fired by a particu larly simple method. Tho military 'alue of the invention, however, yet remains to be established.

THE fifteenth day of May will long be remembered by the fanning com munity in particular, and the whole of the inhabitants of Australia gener ally, inasmuch as it chronicled the passing of the most disastrous drought ever experienced in the history of Australia. Copious rains were re corded from all parts of the State, up to six inches and over falling in some places. The season so far augurs well, and the sown cropa, and grass, are making very favorable pro gress. On the hills around Dookie the green sward stands out in mark ed contrast to the recent bare and barren brows, and there is already a fresh and sweet pioking for sheep. Dams and tanks have been replen ished, and rivers and creeks are running strongly, in many instances bank high; farmers have now ceased to cart water, and the tanks have been pub aside, it...

Explosives Expert. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 27 May 1915

Explosives Expert. s The greatest living authority on explosives to-day is Sir Andrew No ble, chairman of the great firm ol Armstron g, Whit worth, and Co., tc whom the war has brought hundreds of thousands of pounds" worth of ' work. Entering the Army, he became a captain in tba Hoyal Artillery. The Government recognised his abili ty first by appointing him to a technical committee on armour plates, and secondly by making him assistant inspector of artillery. When the late Lord Armstrong added an ordnance manufactory to his works at Elswick he called young Noble to hiB side. Together they made Arm strong's one ol the greatest con cerns in the country, with a wage bill in Kewcastle alone of over £20, 000.

Fallen in Battle. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 27 May 1915

Fallen in Battle. Every nation has its own particu lar method of identifying its dead in war time. Each English soldier has a small oblong cart (known ofiicir.liy as Army Form B. 2,067), which is stitched inside the tunic. On it are entered particulars of the man's name and regiment, neit-of-kin, etc. Besides this, every article of the man's clothing is stamped with a number which corresponds to one written opposite his name in, the regimental records, as well as the county depot of his battalion. Our method is a little more elabo rate than that of Germany, whose soldiers'carry a metal disc bearing a number, which corresponds with a number at the Berlin War Office. Af ter a battle numbers, not names, are telegraphed and verified. And the effectiveness of this Bystem may he judged by the fact that after the fighting round Metz in 1870, when the casualties exceeded 40,000, complete lists were posted in the capital two days later. The Japanese system is very simi lar. Each man has thre...

What Belgium Suffers. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 27 May 1915

What Belgium Suffers. The present c.mditioti uf Balgium is the suhjt-ct r.i intf-r-siing comment by M. Phillipe Meny, the great musician, whose services have been secured to direct the Belgian Band shortly touring Australia. M. Meny was but recently ia Belgium, nod he declares that the terrible plight of the country ia made the more un bearable by the systematic tyranny of the German soldiery. " German brutality to a beaten people is daily displayed in unnecessary acts of op pression by military and civil officials invested with a little brief authority. Direct acts of violence, of course, oaunot he evaded, and must bo pati ently borne until our English and French friends drive the savages from our midst, but, wherever pos sible, our people get even with th»ir aonquerors in many subtle and amus ing ways. I remember the response of our public when an absurd Prus sian bully commanded the Belgians to remove their hats to every soldier that they saw. The Belgians simply appeared in the ...
