ACETYLENE GAS IN PLANT GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 18 April 1907
ACETYLENE GAS IN PLANT GROWING. The results obtained in tho elaborate experiments with acetylene gas on plant -life ;at the.'Cornell University, as set forth in a pa per. by Professor John Craig (writes: the 'Acetylene Journal'), Chi cago, are what might be expected when the. close approximation of acetylene il lumination .to sunlight is considered. itie sun, as everyone knows, stands for life and development in plant culture. It is the chief element upon which the gar dener who lortjir. flowers irnd vege;ables under glass depends. When, therefore, lie can turrv to what Is virtually sun shine; as/l'iroduced with ease, economy, and In - abundance by acetylene, he at onco finds help over hard places. Pro fessor Craig begins his paper by quot ing 'iMunstorberg as showing the nearly equal color values of the sun and acety lene as revealed by spectrum analysis. It. Is a ; showing suoh as no other artifi cial light reveals. In that /brief com parison is found the basis of the success with...
THE BEEKEEPER SEASONABLE APIARY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 18 April 1907
THE BEEKEEPER SEASONABLE APIARY WORK. The latter end of March, to the provi dent, brings thoughts of winter, and the average bee-keeper, especially the be ginner, wonders how he will winter his bees. In wintering, the beginner with only two or three colonies cannot adopt tho same system as the advanced bee keeper. Those with the least experi I ence of bees are generally the most spasmodic in bhe preparations for win ter. First see that tho colony has a | queen; if there are no queen cells built ' and there is brood in all stages down to the egg, you are fairly safe in assum ing that the queen is there; but it is bet ter still to see her. it may be that there is not brood in all stages, and par ticularly may this boHhe case when there has been no honey-flow after bass-wood. Then there is no other way .than to actu ally see the queen. When looking for the queen, smoke the bees as little as ' possible, take the combs out quietly, and j do not be too long looking tiiem over the first ti...

A LONDON DODGE. THE SIMPLE CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 18 April 1907
A LONDON DODGE. THE SIMPLE CHILD. It wns under the rnilway bridge at V.mxhall. The evening was damp and foggy and very cold. The mud lay four inches deep in the roadway, and i he stood in the mud and wept. | If we are to believe the prophet Blake when lie assures us that A robin-redbreast. III a cagc, | Puts all heaven in a rage, what sort of a commotion ought we to exneet over n child crvine its heart out in the gutter? 'Whatever is the matter, my little man?' I said. I 'Please,' sobbed the child, 'please, I've lost my 'apenny.' The sorrows of childhood, though they are Hooting, are the most tragic of all. Their effect is so terribly out of propor tion to their cause; and they are ut terly without relief. For a mail faced with bankruptcy there is always a break in the clouds. He can see tho day when, his discharge granted, he shall begin life anew with a substantial capital. A child, however — but this . has all lie en said before. His 'apenny! His ounce of allsorts!

IN THE LAND OF THE SUN. GIRGENTI. (By C. F. G. MASTERMAN.) From the window of my hotel I can look over a little valley across six centuries ; upen the litUe Norman Church and Convent of San Niccola, which Vises from its gardens of orai:g?s and great stone pines, I glance across the valley beyond and immediately traverse another eighteen hundred years, to the long lino of yellow sandstone cliffs which once formed the boundaries of a great Greek city, and crowning these heights, a long line of yellow sand stone temples, which told the ap proaching vessel far out on the waters that it was approaching tho i golden city of Acragas. | Time has dealt hardly with most , of them.

DOCTOR SHOT IN BED. A MACXSD ASSASSIN. Dr. Charles Wilmot Townsend (wired the New York correspondent of the Lon don 'Dally Mall' on 27th January), a leading physician of Staten Island, has been mysteriously shot in the dead of night in the bedroom of his villa in Wes- - tervelt Avenue. .tie ana nis wue were peaceruuy sleep ing, when they were awakened by the glare of the electric light and a man's voice saying, 'Get up.' 'All right,' said Dr. Townsend, drowsily, supposing that it was his coachman, whose duty It was to' rouse him in the event of night calls; bait before he had time to rise he fell back with two revolver shots in his body, as the figure of the mysterious assassin gilded swiftly from the room. Mrs Townsend, who is herself a phy sician, promptly rendered first aid to her stricken husband, while the nurse, who with their three children was sleeping in the adjoining room, rushed to the tele phone and frantically endeavored to summon assistance. She rang in vain, for the w...
THE VALLEY OF DRY BONES. A WEIRD NAME. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 18 April 1907
THE VALLEY OF DRY BONES. A WEIRD NAME, Among the most curious things lu I this queer old world perhaps the I yoirdest Is the 'valley of ilry bones,' I which continually crops up !» 'various I parts of both hemisphere's. | / | In Chill, for Instance, the air Is so dry, that it is almost impossible for a body to decompose in the ordinary | way. Here and there in the mountains : or on the plains one may discover a body that has been clay for several years but has no moi-- returned -to dust than to life. There is literally a valley of dry bones' not far from Valparaiso, where a battle was fought during tlie Bal inaceda troubles. Here may lie seen to day bodies of men and horses scattered among the rocks, that are like nothing so much as .Egyptian mummies shrivelled by the fierce sun, and em balmed by the natural dry atmosphere. This is not, strictly speaking, 'a val ley of dry bones,' but that there is a real one in Ceylon no one who lias visited that island can doubt for a moment. It i...
Testing Vitality of Seeds. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 18 April 1907
Testing Vitality of Seeds. Many of our readers will bo now arranging for their supply of soods for next season's crops, and we ven ture, therefore, to call attention to tho necessity of buyers making sure that their seed is of good vitality and frco from weeds. A simple test of the vitality cf any farm or garden seeds can be made as follows : — Place 100 .seeds, taken at random from a sample, on a dish of sand, cover from half to one inch with sand, moisten and keep in a warm place, as behind a kitchen stove, until tho sprouts appear. Tho number of sprouts which appear will give an idea of the .percentage which may be e-xpected to grow. It is ad visable to make more than one test., and be guided by the average results. A test of this kind is considered more trustworthy than one in witch the seeds are placed in blotting-paper.

FARM m FIELD. Showintr a Horso. The art o£ showing a liorso is gifted to the few. It Is partly an acquisition, but chiefly an endowment. It Is like the * aptitude to judge live stock which de pends not so much upon the training as ' upon the natural eye. It would be very . interesting 11 a rename computation could be made of the number of animals ?which have lost prizes simply because ?they were badly shown. In tlx? one ,- case ho is bound to attract attention; in the other he is sure to escape it. Much tutoring ia required before a man can enter the ranks as a successful show man, but very little progress will be made until the art of showing is tlio 1 roughly mastered.

THE THOUGHT-READING TERROR. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 18 April 1907
THE THOUGHT-BEADING TERROR. Tlie secret of the Zanclgs (writes Mr Douglas in 'M.A.P.') is ti secret de I'olichinelle, so I need not disclose it. It Is more amusing to ask whether thought-reading is a desirable, accom plishment. If we could see each other's thoughts like beoH In a glass hive or ants In a formicariuin, should we be happier? Tlie mind is the only private place in' the world. It is the only se cure hiding-place. It is the impreg nable fortress of personality. If it were captured personality would cease to exfijt. The frontiers between man nud maai would disappear. The indivi dual would be drowned in a seething publicity. Everybody would go mail, and the cvirth would be a lunatic asy lum. All the thoughts of the world would be -tntnnglod iuextricnblj,' It would be impossible to sit down and think coherently in a thunderstorm of thoughts.

The Countess of Straflord, Lady Doro thy's mother, returned to the home she had quitted only on Tuesday. But nothing availed to comfort Cap tain Cuthbert in his grief. He was Vhe chief witness a:t the inquest, where, with haggard face but out wardly composed, he gave his evi dence in a clear, firm voice. 11 was a terrible ordeal, softened as it was by tha obvious sympathy of the jury — drawn from the immedi ate neighborhood, and composed of those who had known Lady Dorothy well — m l by the tact and con;idera tion of the Coroner, Mr Rut...
