Teachers' Association. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 December 1914

Teachers' Associa tion. A meeting of the Bellarined his trict .teachers, convened by Mr Hughes, was held in Queenscli~ff on Saturday last, at the Library. Mr Hughes was voted to the chair, and explained the reasons for calling the teachers of the dis trict together, viz., to consider. the advisability of forming a district teachers' association. The project, he stated, was not a new one, but the time seemed ripe for carrying it into effect now. Cogent reasons were given for thinking the move would be a success, and, after all present had expressed approval, it was decided, on the motion of Messrs Hatters and Wallis, that an association should be formed, and Messrs Hughes and Lavery were elected president and secretary respectively. Several items of interest to teachers in the work ing of their schools was discussed, but, as the meeting was only a pre liminary one, it was decided to postpone further consideration of the various matters until the next meeting, which is to be held at P...

WHAT THE NIGGER THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 December 1914

WHAT THE NiGGER THOUGHT. Admiral De Horsey is an excellent raconteur, and from out of his fund of anecdote, does not hesitate to bring forth a story against himself, if it be a good one. The follow ing is one of the best, especially when told by the Admiral himself. It was when he was Commodore in the West Indies, and his ship lying in Port Royal harbour, Jamaica. One night he went ashore to dine with the Governor at Kingston, but forget to learn the password for the night. Returning on board after dinner, he was stopped at the dock yard gates by a sentry of the West India Regiment. "Who go dar ?" demanded the black warrior, bringing his bayonet to the: charge. "A friend," came the reply out of the dark. "Wal, Massa Frien', what am de countersign ?"' "That's all right, you know me," said the Commodore. "Me know nobody no got dat countersign," and be brought his bayonet perilously near the officer. "'You no can pass h'yar." "But I am Commodore De Hor sey." The nigger broke into a bro...

A MAN WHO WAS HANGED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 December 1914

A MAN WHO WAS HANGED.' It was the custom in the good old days, especially in Ireland, to hang condemned men for half an hour, and then hand them over to their friends. A man named Mahoney was hanged in this way. At the end of half an hour his body was given to his friends, who put him in a coffin they had brought with them, and galloped off with him on a cart. But, before they were out of sight of the gallows authorities, the corpse in the exuberance of his joy sat up in the coffin 'and shouted "Hooroo !" A "pall," terrified lest .his exhibition of vitality should cause the execu tioner to come after them, hit the hanged man playfully on the head with his stick, remarking, "Kape quitt, ye divil." The sileacing was so effectual that the victim of it never woke again, but was well and truly waked that same evening. There was no doubt that the blow on the head had killed him. The facts came to the knowledge of the authorities, and, a justice was ap pealed to for a warrant for the cul p...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 December 1914

VEV are nearing the Christmas season and in a few days Queens cliff will be very full of visitors. There is no reason to doubt that the attendance here will be much depreciated during Christmas, com pared with previous years. There will certainly be a falling off in 'family' visitors-that is to say, there will be fewer families, when parents and children come together and. spend the holiday season. This may be particularly noticeable after the New Year; but next week, for Christmas, there will, we believe, be as many. We cannot this season expect the same round of mirth-loving, gleeful folk as in the seasons when we were free of national troubles. Our spirits have been very gleatly perturbed by reason of relatives and friends having been called to defend the Empire, and the general interest in its welfare in self-denial, providing necessaries for the troops. This has. been a severe strain, individually and collectively, and will continue so until the end; and the citizen, whatever p...

THE FARM. BARRIER FOR ROOT BORER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 December 1914

THE FARM. = BARRIER FOR ROOT BORER. In America a barrier of wire gauze, such as is used in fly screens, is found to be very effective in prevent ing canker worms and other insects from crawling from the ground up the trunks of trees. From the des cription (says an exchange) it should be equally efficacious against the Australian root-borer. A strip of wire gauze, 4 to 6 in. wide is wrap ped around the trunk of a tree. It is tied only at the top, and a little cloth or similar material put under it so that there will be no cracks or openings through which the worms can crawl. The lower part of the strip is bent out from the trunk so that there is a big space under which the insects can gather; also, the wire is so far out that there is no danger of the insects reaching the end and crawling up. When a worm starts to crawl up he keeps on the trunk until he reaches the wire, then he wanders around in the cage in stead of walking down the wire to the edge and crawling up the out side. The...

BED AS A PUNISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 December 1914

BED AS A PUNISHMENT. No more fantastic punishment can well be conceived than that meted out, a while since, by a magistrate in Kansas, to a man charged with being intoxicated. The prisoner was sentenced to seven days in bed, and was conducted home by a policeman who stood by while he iUniressed himself, and then tucked him up snugly between the sheets. "I sentence ou to take your wife and baby to Coney Island once a week, to kiss her at least once a day, and give her five dollars weekly. I further suggest that you give her a bunch of flowers once in a while. You are commanded not to allow your mother-in-law to interfere with_-...: your household arrangements. This sentence is of four week-s' duration. At its expiration you will both re port here. If you have not obeyed the sentence you will be punished for contempt of court."

THE DAIRY. POINTERS IN CALF RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914

THE DAIRY. POINTERS IN CALF RAISING. A great many dairymen take .the calf immediately from the cow, never allowing it to suck. Others will al low the calf to taI~ part of the milk for three or -four days. In any event, it is essential that the calf shall have the first milk from a fresh cow, as the colostrum is necessary in start ing the digestive system of the calf. The calf should be fed at least three times a day for the first week of its life. The quantity of whole milk fed to the calf must be deter mined by the size of the calf, but at first should not be more than two or three pints per meal, and gradually, increased. -If the calf is left on the cow for the first four or five days,) she should be milked out so that the calf will not get too much milk. At the end of the first week, it might receive four or fve pints at morning,; two to four at noon, and four to six at night. Many farmers cannot be bothered feeding the calf at mid day. In such cases the calf for the first three....

TROUBLE IN CONVERTING THE ISLAND OF LAGILOLO. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914

ISLAND OF LAGILOLO. "Yes," said the beachcomber, "we 've had a lot of trouble in convertin' our island. One misfortune and an other .happened to the missionaries by unforseen circumstances. Of course, I'm only speakin' of events that took place since I've been king of the Island. It was in 1865 on the ship Gineral Jackson that I was put in an open boat on the Pacific Ocean, through the schemin' of the Rev. James McBeaser. I was": a circus clown and a Baptis'. The :ship had stormy weather, got delayed, and begun to run out of water and food. The Rev. James McBeaser was a board, goin' to the islands as a mis sionary-a Sandemanian missionary. He organised a revival, and they all came into it but me,. which I couldn't do, as a Baptis'. We kept on havin' bad. weather, and he told the crew that we couldn't expect good weather as long as there was anybody on the ship that wouldn't jine the revival. That turned the sailors against me, and when he advised 'em to turn me adrift they was 'will...

A NEW ERA IN THE FAR EAST. The Fight for Commercial Supremacy. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914

A NEW ERA IN THE FAR EAST. The Fight for Commercial Mr. T. F. Millard's study of the Far East, contained in his book, "America and the Far Eastern Ques tion," recently published in New York is dominated by two opposite notes, pessimism and a story of progress. He regards the situation that has arisen since the close of the Russian war with alarm ; the Japanese commercial policy in Manchuria is creating a situation whitli.may re sult in war between Japan and America,; he has nothing but criti cism for the existing state of affairs in Korea; he is convinced that Ja pan aims at the domination of China. And yet, despite all this, he has to tell of world advance. A new Asia has arisen, an Asia growing daily more and more conscious of her own strength. MUKDEN. Take, fqr example, his description of Mukden. Ten years ago few white men knew the ancient capital of the Manchu kings. In 1900 white refugees were tortured to death in its central square amid indescribable shame and agony. The. pla...

SUNDIALS. THEIR ANTIQUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914

' 4 . [SUNDIALS: STHEIR ANTIQUITY . The antiquity of the sundial isd not he least of its charms. Primitive ian.. obtained some idea of the time by.placing a .stick in the ground and noting how the shadow fell. The an cient Greeks had their sundials, and among the Elgin Marbles in the British Museum. is to be found a. four-faced dial unearthed at Athens. The Romans adopted sundials fromz fthe Greeks, and Cicero- has placed on record the fact that he possessed one at his villa. The .general adoption of sundials throughout thq civilir . world was due to -clerical influence, for the early Popes ordered that sun - Iials should .be. placed on various !churches, in order that. the people coiu'ld 'ecertair the hour of the -lay. The use .of ,sundials. in England may . he said to date from the introduc 'tion. of Christianity.

THE HUNGARIAN GENTLEMAN FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914

THE HUNGARIAN GENiTLEMAN FARMER. Most Contented ladividual in the World. Writing on "The Hungarian Gen tleman Farmer," in the "' Windsor," Baroness Orczy says: "He is the most contented indivi dual in the world, in spite of the fact, or because he knows absolutely nothing of what is going on around him. He does. just read his news paper which arrives daily from Bu da-Pesth, and has vague ideas that all Austrians are thieves and scoun drels, and that therefore a union with Austria is necessarily fatal to Hungary ; but, as a matter of fact, the political situation of his country does not hinterest him in the least ; it, does not: affect the richness of his wheat or the weight of his maize heads. "A keen sportsman, 'he is unhan pered by any game laws. In Hun gary no one is allowed* to carry a gun unless he owns so much land, and the owner of land-and therefore of game-naturally makes his own laws for its preservation. "His chief characteristic is hospi tality, almniot barbaric in its l...

HOW DESERTS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914

HOW EBERTS ARE FORMED. There is a popular idea that deserts like the Sahara are the bottoms pf. ancient seas which have been lifted above their original elevation by geologieal farces. This notion is an erroneous one. It is absolutely cer tain, high authorities contend, that the sands of all the great deserts have been formed on the spot by the disintegration .of, the solid rocks on which they rest. Desert sands, cor respond in all respects, so far as their mode of origin is concerned, to the dust- and sand that accumulates on our high roads in summer. All deserts an situated where the winds from the ocean, before reaching' them are exhausted of their moisture by passing over mountains or across ex tenmite tracts of land.

BORACIC ACID. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 26 December 1914

BORACIC C'AC-I - r, Formerly all the boracic, or boric, acid of commerce was obtained, from borax by heating it with calcined ferrous sulphate in closed vessels, whereby sodoforic acid was formed, and boracic acid was carried on with the watery vapours,. which escaped. This was a long and tedious proc less, and not much.. rogress was made.. until it was discovered that boracic acid could be obtained from ithe boiling springs and jets of va pour in Tuscany. Long after the dia cavery of boracic acid in these springs, the brilliant idea struck the physicist as well as the chemist to employ the heat of the natural iteam jets. This method had the ef tect of* convertihg an unprofitable brancl of industry into one of the nost successful. The lageons are situated near the :op of one of the highest hills. As the, volcanic vapours pass through the waters of the lagoons the.boracic icid is arrested by the water, which becomes impregnated with it. In Salifornia it occurs as the mineral ,assolit...
