What is Horse-power? [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 7 August 1914
What is Horse-power? Among many engineers there arises discussion as to tho incidents sur rounding the origination of the term horso-power ns applied to the steam-engine. The following quota tion from "Furey on the Steam Engine," published in 1827, will' be welcomed by many : "The machinery in the great brew eries and distilleries In London was then moved by the strength of horses, and the proprietors of these establishments, who wero first to require Mr. Watt's engines, always inquired what number of horses ail intended engine would be equal to. "In consequence, Mr. Watt made some experiments on the strong horses employed by the brewers in London, and found that a horse of that kind, walking at the rate of two ami a half miles per hour, -could draw* 3501b. avoirdupois by means of a ropo passing.over a pulley, so as to raiso up, that weight, with a vertical motion, nt the rate of 220ft. per minute. This exertion of me chanical power is equal to '33,000 lb. (or 528 cubic feet) of wat...

WITTY CHURCHMEN. A study of thfl wits of the world rovenls tlio fact that there Is a fair . proportion of clergymen among; them, and a very good illustration of the powers of ropnrteo by an in- . rldont which happened when Bishop Boyd Carpenter was addressing an open-air meoting. An atheist asked the Bishop if ho believed that Jonah was swallowed by the whole. "IVlien T go to hea ven I will ask Jonah," snid his lordship. " But supposing," th&lt;5 other persisted, "ho 1ft not there." "Then you will have to ask him," was the quick retort. At n farewell dinner to I5enn John Gregg, just made Bishop of Cork, a bottlo of rich old Water loo port, instead of making n rapid circuit, rested before lha guest of the evening. "Come," criod his grnco of Dublin, from the head of tho table, "though you nro John Cork, you mustn't stop the bottle." Tho Bishop of Cork repiied, "1 see your grace is disposed to draw mo out. But though charged with Cork, I'm not going to bs screw-1 ed.* j And it ...
An Awful Ornament. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 7 August 1914
An Awful Ornament. j It is a curious* study to note the variety of feminine ornamenta tion in the diflerent nations, and how what may bti considered as a bcautifler by one race becomes a pbsitiva monstrosity and deform ity In the eyes of another. One of the most curious decora tions in the world is adopted by the women of tho llanganja tribe, inhabiting a country in Africa near one of. the northern tribu taries of the Zambesi. It is called the "pclele." This is a ring, but it is fixed nei ther in the ear nor tho nose, as with other races, but in the upper lip. It is a ring-made of ivory, metal, or bamboo, according to tho wealth of the wearer, is nearly an inch in thickness, and varies in diameter at tho will of the wearer, many being nearly three inches In diameter from outer edge to edge. When tho girls aro very young they have the lip pierced with two holes close to the nose, and a small wooden peg Inserted to keep the wound from closing. When tho wound heals two small holes are ...

Mask of Death. A curious mask ot death was do scribod by Captain Nugent before the Royal Geographical Society, when lie gave some of liis exper iences as n member of the Anglo Gorman Commission Which marked the boundaries of Nigeria and tho Cnmcroons. Among tho numerous: " ju-jus " found in the deserted huts was a grotesque mnsk, which was appa rently kept to frighten the women. Any women seeing it must dio at oncc, U'ho local witch-doctor put on tho musk and ran about the hills until ho met a likely-looking victim, who was then killed. Describing one tribe ot hill-top pagans, Captain Nugent said : "The villages consist of little bee hive-shaped . huts of mud or grass, perched on ' apparently inaccessible heights or cunningly hidden away in mazes of dense Tropical vege tation. The inhabitants bear a great resemblance to monkeys, be ing small in stature, but extraordi narily active.

Agricultural Notes and Queries THE SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 7 August 1914
Agricultural Notes and Queries (BY GLEAN: THE SEAbON. The absence of good soaking rainB is causing anxiety in many of the agricultural districts of Victoria and. neighboring States In portions of Northern Victoria and Riverina, hand feeding of stock is being resorted to Unless pood general rains occur this month, wheat growers and stock owuerB will be gravely apprehensive as to the results of the current year. The wheat plant is hardy, so that even the scanty showers of the past month will tnable it to struggle on for a while. But, unless early and heavy spring rains occur, the outlook for even a moderate crop will not be assuring. The scanty autumn and winter rains have caused great hardship to stockowners over wide areas of Aus tralia, especially in Western New South Wales and Northern Victoria. The hard conditions in Western New South Wales is shown in the official returns of lambing. While for the whole State the percentage of lambs "dropped" is 79, ami of those "mm ked1' 64. th...
YOUR MORNING BATH. WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IT. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 7 August 1914
YOUR MORNING BATH. WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IT. Tlie chief vnluo of bathing;.lies in its exhilaration. Don't tnftke n. ponanco of It. If you don't enjoy it, it's doing you harm. The good of the both is in the reaction, tho plow thnt follows it, not lit the plunge itself. Cold in general, and cold water in particular, is a tonic. First to the nervous system, through its branches in the skin, sccond to the heart and blood vessel a as shown in the glow, and third to the mus cles nnd digestive glands. It is the best appetiser known, worth all tho tonics nnd bitters in existenco. But, like any other tonic, whllo a I small doso stimulates, a largo ono depresses. And tho size of tho doso depends entirely on tho bather, for n strong, vigorous person, in tho primo of life, nothing is better thnn tho cold plunge. It exhilarates, it clears tho brain of the cobwebs of the night ; it sends tho blood hum ming through tho veins as nothing else in the wicfo world can. But it takes a vigorous cons...

MESSAGES FROM THE DEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 7 August 1914
MESSAGES .FROM THE BEEP. ? - Mr. Olaf Nord, of Copenhagen, has made an invention by means of which the crew of a foundered sub marine will be able to communicate their position. The invention con sists of a special buoy which the crew' sends to the surface of the water. The buoy is fastened to a cable and supplied with an electric. lump, by means of which the crew below can make light signals, showing 1 where the boat has foundered, and in a buoy is an apparatus through which a rescuing crew can speak to the men in the submarine. ..Muriel," said the old gentleman, sharply, "tlint young man you had in the drawingroorn last night is dull of comprehension. All 1 had to do was cough when the other chnps re mained too lute, and they would take the hint and depart. J)id this one say anything when f coughed last ul^ht ?" "Yes," replied his beautiful daughter. "He said the next time he coiJcd he .was going I to bring y,ou some cough drops." !
FILLING THE SILO. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 7 August 1914
FILLING THE SILO. Somu cure is necessary as to the proper stage at which crops should be cut lo fill the silo. Tliey must not be I too green or yet too dry. If, for in« stance, Algerian oats are cub too green, the hay or silage nude from them is bitter. When tliny are just turning to I he ripening is a snod time to cut ihim f'ir bilage. Maize should have the cobs well formt' l, and the grain beginning to hinli-ii. Nearly all crops are bet tor chqff'd liefmc being putin the ensilage pit. T iii certainly applies to such bulky crops as maize and sorghum.' Ctmiliiig and filling, wherever practicable, should go on simultaneously with cutting and cart iug in, The addition of salt, at the rate of 4 to 7 lbs per ton, is regarded by most ensilage makers as desirable. When a pit. silo is filled, the stuff should be heaped up several feet above the level of the Burface, and covered over with a foot; or more of earth. After it settlor down, it should be banked over with earth in such manner as ...
Ski Party Held at Bay by Wolves. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 7 August 1914
Ski Party Held at Bay by Wolves. A party of ski-ers from Lemberg had narrow escapes from being eaten by wolves while making a tour in the Carpathian Mountains between Galicia and Hungary. They heard a howl during the afternoon, and found that a small pack of animals was following them along a narrow .forest track down a mountain. Twilight came on be fore they got clcar of the woods, and the wolves then became bolder and threatened to rush the last man of the party. It became impossible to proceod to the place which it had been in tended to reach before nightfall, and the ski-ers took up a position where their rear was protected by a rock, and passed the night behind their skis stuck upright in the snow. Nearly all had revolvers, and several had electric pocket-lamps, which really saved their lives, as they enabled them to fire at any wolf which ventured within range of the light. The animals prowled ? around them all night, but made off at daybreak, leaving several of the pack dead*...
