A TiirC Sensation. Following on tho disqualifica tion for life of John Jordan, liors trainer and owner of the race horse Iiardy French, by the stewards of xVscot Racing Clu last month, Jordan was arrested. In his statement before tho stew nrds of the club, Jordan declined that he had purchased the horse in question at Numurkah horse sale yards in April for £7, and that lie did not know it to be iden tical with a horse which had per formed in Queensland.

£100 War-P lizzie C'onl The editor of "Everylacly's Journal" has hit upon an ingeni ous scheme. which combines instruction with amusement-a War-Puzzle Contest along origi nal lines, with £100 in prizes. The editor has issued a list of some thousands of places that have come into more or less prominence in the war zone, these places be ing chosen from maps published in "'The Times History of the War" in volume form, and, lliere foro, authentic. At the head of the names in each country is a brief explanation of the principles governing this pronunciat ion, with the. correct pronunciai inn given in brackets after the place. This puzzle-list is worth obtaining if for no other purpose than that or knowing how these various names should be pronounced.

College Report. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 10 June 1915

College Uepori. The Principal of ihe Dookie Agricultural College, in his report for May, states that tho Ion;/ dry spoil which has resulted in such a loss of agricultural wealth to tho country has ended, and that (lie promise of the future is now very bright as regards the crop ping areas. From past experi ence Jong dry seasons, followed by seasonable rains, augur well for good returns at harvest. Tho land has been sweetened and it is not yet cold, hence good ger mination may be expected in the fields sown with grain. Tho possibility of having to re sow a part- of the early sown crop had been anticipated, but there will now be no necessity, as tho seed which germinated about the middle of April and had appar ently died back is putting forth new growth. This is a very prac tical instance of the recuperative and resistant powers of the wheat p'ant to severe checks, and that, as a standard crop for the north ern areas, the improvement and development of varieties suitable for the vario...

BRAM STOKER'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 17 June 1915

BRAM STOKER'S ADVICE. The late Mr. Bram Stoker had a ready wit. Sir Henry Irving, whose manager and secretary he was, once told an amusing story of him. Hard ly a mail arrived that did not bring Sir Henry a batch of begging letters. One day he got a note from Paris, which ran thus : "Dear Sir Henry, As I walk along the boulevards hard ly a day passes on which I am not mistaken for you. The resemblance is extraordinary, and it is really most embarrassing. And I should be glad to know what you would have me do in the matter. Meanwhile, the loan of a five-pound note would he much appreciated by yours truly "You'll look to it, Stoker ?" said Sir Henry. Certainly," was the prompt reply. A day ot two afterwards the letter happened to cross Sir Henry's mem ory, and he asked Bram Stoker what he bad done in regard to it. "I sent him a poHtal order {or half a crown, and told him to got his hair cut."

Our Future Homes. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 17 June 1915

Our Future Homes. The dwelling of 10Q years henct., ac cording to the prophecy of Mr. W. E. Milns, will be quite unlike that of to-day. It will be without chimneys, will have a lift.in the centre instead of staircases, will be heated electri cally from strips put in during buil ding construction, lighted from hid den strips around the walls, and will have simplified and perfected electric cookers and other utensils. A slid ing roof will provide open-air treat ment as desired. The gardener will not only usei electricity for stimu lating his plants, but as a source of power for pumping, and cutting liis grass ; and the universal garage will use it for charging automobiles, driving small repair tools, inflating and vulcanising tyres, and probably for compressed air cleaning. As all coal will be burned at the pit's mouth to generate electricity, towns will be practically dustless and smokeless. All transportation will be by electricity, factories and busi ness places will depend upon a ...

The prospects of tbo season are so (rood that stookownera now feel justi I fied in bringing home-what is left of them of course-large numbers of j horses, cattle and sheep from the : different parts whither they had been | compelled to aend them for pasture j months back. On Friday last some ; oighteen trucks ladeti with stock passed through Dookie to Kata- ; matite, and on arrival some of them | were found to be dead. The condi tion of the animals generally, more^ over, was not such that would lead one to believe that pasture in these other parts was plentiful and nourish ing, as the poor beasts were in a very pitiable condition, and from a layman's point of view, the only con solation owners have is that they h(we at least saved some of thorn - but this oonsolation, if suoh it may rightly be called, has been dearly b...

Bursting Meteorites. FRICTION CAUSES THE RED HEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 17 June 1915

Bursting PJietQorites. UCTION CAUSES THE KED HEAT. Whence come the meteors ? asks Mr. H. B, Collier, an eminent Can adian astronomor. Tlie answers are numerous and varied. If we accept the theory of a small group of sci entists, among them Mr. W. H. Pic kering, we will have to believe that the moon was thrown oil from the earth ages ago; and in such a gi gantic eruption innumerable small pieces were loosened and Hung into space. Another school claims the sun as the source, its enormous erup tive power being able to overcome the force of gravity, and in conse quence these millions of small bodies are flung about the solar system at random apparently. But when it is considered that the astronomer' of to-day foretells the date of arrival of "showers" of me teors, in view of his knowledge of tlx; path of a comet, we must ac cept the relationship existing be tween comets and meteors. The once magestic comet has become dissi pated into innumerable bodies, each a small world, which trail a...

Wilson, P. D. Ryan, P. J. Ryan, W. Higgins, J. Thompson and H. A. Middleton (seoretary). After the minutes of the previous meeting had been read and confirmed, the seore tary submitted a financial statement showing that the net profit from the two sooials held to be about £2. It was resolved that the next sooial be held on Thursday, lat July, and that the sale of tiokefca be pushed a little more vigorously. The objeot is a most deserving one, and in order to raise funds for the local Red Cross j Society tbeBe sooials were arranged, but so far tho sympathy of the public j has not been very great. It is hoped, however, that the nooessity for raising funds will dawn much more forcibly on those who indulge in the pastime of dancing, aB the committee decided on these socials to give contributor...
