Original Verse. Tbe following verse was found pushed under our door during the week : — The Kaiser'started his big blockade, And be sunk a ship or two ; He broke all the rules that e're were On Allies and neutrals made a raid, Said the councillors this wont do : I'll let him see by hook or by crook, That none of this is allowed by THAT BOOK. But tbe Kaiser told him to take his book, And give THAT BOOK to the zoo (Including the councillor too) ; But being unused to carnivorous pranks,. ? r ?

^rni* fii»#*i*H*wHt' -;?: Is the subject of a series of articles lately appearing in the 'Times.' The rritet says : 'A standard «f prosperity never previously approached coincides with a situation never comparably so menacing. A large section of the In -ian press devotes itself to .a relentless -ampaigB designed to undermine the authority of Government, and to pro .-note acute, radal antagonisms.' The writer further statcsthat owing to this propaganda periodical assassinations it officials and loyal Indian public ser vants are attempted, and often effect ed. Its general effects arc also found in other forms. J in Bengal, dacoity has become a diversion of educated youths, and victims and law-abiding people are unwilling or afraid to as sist the ends of justice.

FORECASTS OF MODERN INVENTIONS. SWIFT WRITES OF MAR'S SATELLITES BEFORE SCIENCE DISCOVERED THEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 2 April 1915

FORECASTS QF MODERN INVENTIONS. SWIFT WRITES OF MAR'S SATEL LITES BEFORE SCIENCE DISCOVERED THEM. Chance phrases in the literary works of other days describe with uncanny exactness inventions of far later times. For instance, we. find in the Prolusions of Strada the Rtttaan, which were pub UsTied in *h|;vea|r 1617, what might be *eld to epifedj'^ -tinde description of wifeless (tt^t&pby; Strada, accord ing tp jivivir^r4n 'Harper's Weekly,1 represents tiro friends as carrying' on a correspondence by means of a cer tain lorestone which has such vir tue in it that if it touches two needles, when one .of the needles begins to move the other, although at ever so great a distance, moves at the same time and irrthe same manner. In 1674 Robert Hooke published a work wherein he observed that as glasses improve the vision, so ways might be found to improve our senses. 'It is not impossible,' says he, 'to hear a whisper a distance of a furlong, and perhaps the nature of the thing would...
