USED IN TEA-CHESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906

USED IN TEA-CHESTS. 'One often hears it said that lea chests ere lined with tin-foil; but just aB there is no lead In a lead-pencil, so there Is no tin in this tin-foil,' re marks an authority. _ 'The thin lining consists of the very pureBt lead that can be found. John Chinaman bas a supply of lead which would yield millions annually if pro perly worked, and from this inexhaus tible supply he takes what he needs for making linings for tea-chests. 'The lead is melted in small ves sels, and poured out white hot. Be fore it has time to cool, it is pressed Into a sort of mould, and when enough squares have been produced they arc soldered together, and the sheet thus formed is placed in the chest as a lining. Then the top layer of lead is soldered on, and all possibility of the tea losing strength on the voyage is at an end.'

DAIRYING. VARIATIONS IN TEST OF SEPARATOR CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906

DAIRYfNJQ. VARIATIONS IN TEST OF SEPARA TOR CREAM. In writing of creamery problems, Mr. E. H. Farrington expresses his opinion on variations in test as fol lows in the 'Wisconsin Bulletin':— One of the things which some own «S.or-fiirm. saBWatprs do not under ^ta^^ycftfsF»r3^ifja£!5mi in the richness of the cream. Most of them have learned that the cream screw of the separator may be so adjusted as to increase or decrease the thickness of the cream, but they may have noticed that sometimes the test of their cream at the creamery will vary considerably from week to week, even when the cream screw has not been changed, and is likely to conclude that the. cream is not being accurately tested at the factory. This Is a matter which* has caused considerable trouble in the past and may in the future, unless the owners of farm separators get a better under standing of the causes of variations in the test of cream when the ' cream screw adjustment is not changed. Nearly all creamery butter-m...

Her Borrowed Reputation [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906

Her Borrowed Reputation Mrs. Claudian Blake was visibly agi tated— of that there, could be no doubt. The nervous twitching of her mouth and movement of her hands showed it — her voice betrayed It also. 'My position socially is In your hands, dear. Whether I'm to be a success or whether a mere atom in the big social world rests entirely with you, Elhc), and you alone.' Her sister only looked the surprise she felt One was struck with the ab solute similarity of the two faces; In deed, many would have found It im lrossible to tell which sister was which, for they were twin sisters. But those who were Intimately acquainted with them knew that the remarkable like ness pertained only to their external appearance, bnt did not involve the character in any way, for in character the sisters were entirely opposite. Mrs. Blake's life had been one long run of petty care, her sister's had been simple and care-free. The latter's bloom was natural, the former's arti ficial. Ethel loved music, paint...

WHEN A RE[?] SAVED EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906

WHEN A RCAno SAVED EUROPE. The most striking case in' history of the importance of trifles is furnish ed by the story of Musa, the leader of the Moslem host which won from Christendom in three and a hah! years dominions which it took the soldiers of the Cross twenty generations to win back. He nad a red beard; this was a trifle. Musa, though a very great general, was a very vain man, and he died his beard black. This was another trifle. One of his captains chaffed him on the subject, and Musa forthwith had him stripped and scourged. For this, at the very height of his conquering career, he was recalled by the Caliph and disgraced. This made it impos sible for him to command the Moslem army at the battle of Tours, on the Issue of which, as all historians agree, tne destinies of Europe, and, perhaps, of the whole human race, depended. It is almost certain that, if the genius of Musa had replaced the in competence of the half-dozen tribal leaders, whose dissensions made vic tory imposs...

A POOR OLD GENTLEMAN'S PREDICAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906

A POOR OLD GENTLEMAN'S PREDICAMENT. One of the most amusing accidents imaginable happened recently to an old gentleman in one of onr large towns. He was asked to buy a ticket tor a fireman's ball, and good natured ly complied. me next question was what to do with it. He had two servants, either one of whom would be glad to use it, jut he did not wish to show favoritsm. Tnen it occurred to him that he might buy another ticket and give both his servants pleasure. Not knowing where the tickets were sold, he inquired of a policeman, and the oflicer suggested that he should go to the tire-brigade station. So the old gentleman went to the sta tion that evening, but found no one in sight. He had never been in such a place before, and stood for a moment or so uncertain how to make his presence known. Presently he saw an electric button on the side of the wall, and he put his thumb on it. The effect was electrical in every sense of the word. Through the ceil ins, down the stairs, and from ev...

The Astronomer's Courtship. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906

The ABtronomer's Courtship. An interesting story hau recently been told about the late Sir George Airy, the famous astronomer royal, and his courtship. By reason of his timidity he seemed doomed to be a bachelor for life. But fortune favored him, and he drifted into matrimony in an unexpected way. An intimate friend remarked to him one day, 'Have you ever observed Miss ? 's eyes? They have the pro perty of double refraction.' 'Dear me, that is very odd!' he ex claimed; 'I should like to see that. Do you think I might venture to call ?' And tall he did, -and begged permis sion to examine the young lady's eyes. Ihe novelty of the situation may have fascinated him. At any rate he begged the privilege of a second call to look at the eycB in a clearer lleht. The problem grew so interesting that he at length came to the conclusion to make it a life-study. The boldness born of scientific curiosity enabled him ultimately to propose. He was accep ted, and the strange courtship ended in a hap...

TEMPTATIONS OF A JOURNALIST. Queer Attempt to Bribe a Reporter. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906

TEMPTATIONS OF A JOURNALIST. Queer Attempt to Bribe a Reporter. The editor of a London daily tells :i story of a bribing experience. As a reporter on the staff of a Philadelphia journal, it was his duty to write a column on a 'sacred white elephant'' Drought to the States by a rival of the great Barnum. The huge beast was 'white ' right enough, but the journal ist bad his suspicions. Edging close up to tb« animal, be moistened his forefinger and applied it to the ele phant's hide. As he suspected, a small disc of color came off, proving that tbe 'whiteness' of the ' elephant was arti ficial. The other reporters filled their allotted space with marvellous descrip tions of the milky monster. The young journalist's editor, however, before making an exposure of the fraud, sug gested that the showman should be given a chance of clearing himself. Again the reporter repaired to the ex hibition. The showman denied that anything was wrong with the elephant, and offered the newspaper man a ch...

DAYSDALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906

DAYSDALE. Notwithstanding many threat enings, signs, aud tokens of rain, it still holds off, and drinking water is at a premium, most of the towns people have given up their ordin ary avocations aud put iu most of their time carting water. To-day I noticed a prominent citizen with two big buckets, a hoop, a profuse perspiration, aud half a mile to walk. I am thankful that his tongue was too.dry to admit of his making any observations. In respouse to a notice Messrs. Castle, Doyle, O'Halloran, Kus chert (2), M'Gaviu, and Hudson met at the Mechanic's Institute to consider the advisability of holding a ball in aid of the Urana Hospital. Mr. Castle was voted to the chair. After discussion, it was carried un animously that a ball be held. Mr. Hudson was elected Secretary, and a strong committee was formed to carry out the arrangements. It is confidently expected that the townspeople will assist liberally, aud that the Hospital will receive a substantial benefit. Four residents went to th...

WARMATTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906

WARMATTA. . nxtremely flry conditions still prevail here. Water is alarmingly scarce, and the residents are falling Back on wells for their supply. Economy has to be studied ; the local teacher has solved the problem of ' how to bathe in a tea-cun.' Most of the wheat carting of Berrigau is finished. The roads bear evidence of the great amount of traffic which passed over them. When the rain really does come (which .we hope for some lime this year) travelling will be far from easy. The cool chauge of a couple of nights ago was a blessing to both man and beast. Mr. John Wren, of Melbourne, has made an extraordinary offer to the State Premier (Mr. Bent), with respect to renting the Flemingtou Bacccourso. Mr. Wren IB willing to pay an annual rental of £25,000, and offers to pay two years rent iu advance as a guarantee of good faith.

On the Fringe of theCrovtft. [BY ONIiOOKEK.] ' The Onlooker sees most of the Gome.' This talk about billy tea makes me fatigued. I know all about it, with the sweetening of gum leaves and other stray tit-bits. The truth is, when fellows are out in the open and hungry, and fresh, they would relish anything. When it comes to tea oil a hot day give me a shady rtoni, with the. baud playing in the distance, a nice fresh breiv. and some of those fluffy-looking cream cakes that make you hold your breath for fear of blowing them away. Likewise a piece of rich old lace and muslin with a tem perature of about a hundred point six inside of it, aud you cau have all the billy tea on your own. I know some fellows who were out last Sunday fishing, and they had some great billy-tea. They were laying back beneath the shady gums watchingtherippleof the water amongst the reeds that skirted the lagoon, and as they chased the bull ants off the corn beef, and swal lowed pannikins of hot lea, they reckone...

A GREAT COMPOSER. HECTOR BERLIOZ. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906

A GREAT COMPOSER. HECTOR BERLIOZ. A colossal nightingale, a lark the sice ot an eagle, such as once existed, they say, in the primitive world. Yes, the music of Berlioz has generally something primitive or primeval about it It makes me think of vast mam moths, or other extinct animals, of fabulous empires filled with fabulous crimes, and other enormous possibili ties. He Is a magician, and he calls up Babylon, the banging gardens of Semiramis, the marvels of Ninevah, and the vast temples ol Mlzrlam. —Heine. The most famous musical composer of France is Hector Berlioz. He stands among htr musicians where Victor Hugo stands among her poets, though in both cases she was slow to recognise their power. ? The indifference of Paris to Berlioz during his life in her midst only proved the proverbial shallowness of the gay Lutetia. She wished to hear the tinkling of the lute in my lady's cham ber, or to move to the Intoxicating music of the waltz— the might ot the. tempest, the shriek ot the^...
