A CURIOUS PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 April 1914
A CURIOUSPROCESSION. In the deep pine forests of Norway the wood-cutters soinetimes find a serpentine object;'" fifty feet long, crawling slowly over the ground. If they did not know that it was made up of millions of little worms, they might ,be frightened by its peculiar appearance. These worms, called the sciara, gather during July and August in large numbers, preparatory to migrat ing in search of food or for change of condition. When setting out on this journey, they stick themselves to gether and form a huge serpentine mass, often reaching a length of be tween forty and fifty feet and several inches in thickness. As the sciara is only on an average about three thirty-seconds of an inch in length, and barely wider than a fine needle, the number' required to compose a line of the size above men tioned is enormous. Their pace is very' slow, and uponr meeting anr obstacle, such as a stick or stone, they will either writhe over or around it, sometimes breaking into bodies for this ...
A RUSSIAN WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 April 1914
A RUSSIAN WEDDING. A Russian wedding is described by a traveller who was one of the invited guests. It was to take place at 8 p.m., but the bride, of course, was late. Instead of arriving at eight o'clock,.it was nearly nine before she made her appearance. She was pre ceded by her nephew, a little boy five years old, holding an image of "Our Lord." The child gave this to (the priest, and then the service 'began. Neither organ nor any musical in strument is allowed in the 'Russian Church, so the choir, consisting, of five men, chanted. The priest. ?.lter nately read and the choir chanting went on for about half an hour. The priest then addressed several words to the bride and bridegroom. Two gentlemen, "garcons d'honneur," or groomsmen, stepped forward and were each given a crown, which they were to hold over the bride and bride groom's head until the end of the service. The priest then put a wedding-ring on the third finger of the right hand of each, and the chanting went on as befo...
ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 April 1914
ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. In the year 1828 there appeared 'in the streets of Nureinburg a youth who could apparently not even stand se: curely. Upon his person a card was found, stating that, owing to certain directions, he had been kept since his birth in absolute seclusion, never seeing anyone or being taught any thing. Gradually the boy was taught to read and write, thlough, till his dis covery, he could not speak a word ex cept to say his name, "Kasper Hau ser," which he had been taught to re peat like a parrot; nor did he know the name of a single object. By de grees he related that he' had spent all his life in a .dark "hole," where he was fed by a man every day, though he could not describe him, owing to the darkness in which he had always seen him. At last Kasper Hauser was taken in charge by an English nobleman Lord Stanhope-and educated to take the place of a clerk; but. one day, while out walking, the young man, who was now. about twenty-one years old; acc...

Testing Artificial Manures. IMPORTANT RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
Testing Artificial Manures. IMPORTANT RESULTS. A series of tests with artificial manures was made by the Depart ment of Agriculture -last season, in order to learn the requirements of representative wheat soils in respect. of phosphates, nitrates, lime and potash manures. The results obtained. at the Rutherglen experimental farm, at which a series of 20 quarter acre plots was sown with differing com binations of nitrogenous, phosphatic and potassio manures, were typical of the tests conducted at other centres. Four facts were demonstrated pro minently, according to the report sub. mitted to the Director of Agricul. ture. First, the most effective forms in which phosphates can be applied to a wheat .crop is the water soluble form, as super phosphate. A mixture of water soluble x (super) and citrate soluble phosphate (basic, slag) comes next in value, and least effective of all as far as immediate results are con cerned is bonedust. The bonedust, however, contains organic nitrogen as ...

He possessed these in marked degree. Hence his success. When the Wesleyan conference dele gated hlim to open the Central Mission in Lonsdald'Street it required the heart lof ...
