LURING WILD ANIMALS. VARIOUS NOISES AND CALLS IMITATED BY INDIANS OF NEWFOUNDLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 12 September 1914
LURING WILD ANIMALS. .. ; VARIOUS NOISES AND . CALLS D IMITATED BY INDIANS OF NEWFOUNDLAND. The Indians have a call or tolc for nearly every animal. They can bring a fox right up to within 20 yards by -making a sibilant lioise produced by sucking the back of the ifand: Reynard takes it to be the cry of a mouse in difficulties, and seldom fails to advance close to the sound.: Stag caribou are toled by grunt ing loudly in two different ways, a vocal . effort . which requires little skill or practice on the imitator's part. The "herd" stag will quick ly answer the, caiUer and advance for a, short distance, but the ''travelling" stag will come very close if the calls are properly made at suitable intervals.7 Wild geese can be called when they first arrive in the Spring by waving a white rag and imitating their "honking" call, but after the first Tortnight they 4ake little notice of the lure. A small white dog is also at -tr-active to geese in the . Spring, arid one Indian I know has kil...

THE COLISEUM. -?+--' THE LAST WORD OF PAGANISM. The Coliseum is of brtck, faced with stone. The Pantheon is brick, a coarse grey brick in texture like a potter's- sagger ; and-its dome, .the most- daring in the. world-, is of ce ment. They say-"Roman cement is ever lasting I add-"And everlastingly, sombre !" I took my first sight of the Coli seum on my way to San Clemente. At my first view from the high ground where I stood I looked at ijL almost midway. It seemed large ; but I had imagined it still larger. I clambered down the slopes and stood close underneath-it,-in the gulf of its great shadow. Thence I look ed up at it. It had meanwhile be come a grca*". open-jawed Leviatharx. Then I passed through one of its countless "vom'itoria." I remember , ed that this was the Latin word for these outlets; and the v.o. tl' oppress ed me. I stood for a rnom n' dazed by the shadows. At a s'ro'-n all the younger buildings in Urn City of Ruins became toys by th&lt; side of this ruin. W...

A MOUSTACHE THAT MADE A FORTUNE t-; j TRUE STORY OF THE GERMAN EMPEROR'S ''"BRiSTLER." ° The story of how a man made a | fortune out of a moustache is as interesting as it is remarkable. Some twenty years ago there' was attach ed to the German Emperor's mili tary stafJ a certain officer, by name Von Bencks, who was somewhat of a dandy. , Ihis Von Bencks was in the habit of patronising a hairdresser by the name of Haby, and one day, on. the occasion of some very special cere mony in which the Emperor was tak ing part, he decided to surpass him self. Accordingly he gave instructions to Herr Haby that his moustache should be trimmed in some entirely novel way. Now, Herr Haby was a ?man., of original ideas, and soon had Von..-; Bencks's moustache pointing ferociously upwards towards his eyes. ... If Von Bencks was delighted with the effect, he was even more so when the Emperor William himself noticed it in the procession, and publicly con gratulated him at the Royal ban quet which,. at ...

The hordes of'foreign-1 ers who infest the service-Europeans j of: every race, Lascars-Indians and ; Asiatics - Chinamen, Malays, and others of lesser breeds-put up with ! conditions so rough and so hard, and in some cases so filthy, that,not only will no decent, self-respecting British seamen now accept them, but re spectable boys from good homes, un less driven by desperation, will not go to sea. At least ' 74,000 foreign seamen are employed on British merchant ships.'

The right course would -have been to request the Mayor to call a meet ing of citizens and arrange to enter tain the men, as they should have been, in the Town Hall, as was done at Prahran arid Brighton last Saturday. 1 spoke to a great num ber of the men at Camp last Sunday, and they one and all expressed their disappointment. I was very disappointed at not been able to be present to do honor to my comrades, but found it impossible to associate myself with the method pursued Should another contingent go from Richmond, 1 trust they will be en tertained as they should be by a truly representative body of their fellow townsmen of all shades of opinion.
