THE FARM. BARRIER FOR ROOT BORER. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914

THE FARM. BARRIER FOR ROOT BORER. In America a barrier of wire gauze,' 6uch as is used in fly scrccns, 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 a% exchange) it should be equally efficacious against the Australian root-borer. A strip oi wire gauze, 4 to 6 in. wide is wrap ped around the trunk of a tree. It ie 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 undsr'which the insects can gather; also, the wire is so far out that there is no danger of tho insects reaching the! . end and crawling up. When a worm ' starts to crawl up he keeps on tho I trunk until he reaches the wire,, then he wanders around in the cage in stead of walking down tho wire to the edge and crawling up the ou...

BRAILE'S BIG WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914

BRAILE'S BIG WELL. Perhaps the most idiotic of all tho many mad schemes with which Britons havo been enamoured in days gone by was that which was known at the timo as Braile's Big Well. M. Draile was & Belgian en gineer, residing temporarily in Eng land, who in 1818 approached the then Prime Minister (Lord John Ilussell) with a. scheme for sink ing a huge., shaft a mile in dia meter and twenty miles in depth, that should tap the earth's internal heat, and thereby render England independent of her coal supply when this gave out. Lord Hussell, always rather at tracted by the visionary projects, attentively considered the scheme, and. caused plans and estimates to be drawn up. The first difficulty was tho inrush of water, which ?would have beon certain to occur sooner or later. This it was pro posed to keep under by pumping, caissons being used for the purpose of further excavations, while the fin ished portion of the shaft tfas to be rendered watertight by a "jacket " of grani...

ENNOBLED ON THE FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914

ENNOBLED ON THE FIELD. It was on the field of Magenta (June 4)-one of the grimmest of the grim fights of the Franco-Atis trian War of 1859--that MacMahon received from his Sovereign the titlo of duke and tho baton of marshal. It was on impressive incident, re calling the ancient custom of be stowing knighthood on the field of battle. MacMahon's name'sufficiently indi cates his Irish origin. Many Jaco < bite families followed to France the fallen Stuarts, and made their homo across tho Channel. To tho national love of glory MacMahon added a bulldog tonacity and phlegm which his French admirers attributed to hiB "English" origin, hut which was, in any case, suffi ciently characteristic. At Sebastopoi his men carried the Mnlakoff while tho British troops were repulsed from the Redan. The English Commander-in-Chief, seeing the Tri-color flying over the Russian stronghold, sent his aide-de-camp to ask MacMahon "whether he thought he could hold his position." " Go back and tell...

GENERAL ROBERT E. LEE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 6 November 1914

GENERAL ROBERT E. LEE. 1 In the earlier stages of the Ameri can* Civil War there was no hotter fighting than that round Bichmond in 1862, a week of engagements ending in an operation called by the Federal general, M'Lellan, a a "change of base/' but indistin guishable from a forced retreat. One of the'battles, on June 1, on the Chickahominy, was of first im portance from its indirect results, for, late . in the day, the Confeder rate leader, Joseph Johnston, was wounded, and replaced by General R. E. Lee. Thenceforward, down to the surrender at Appomattox, on April 10, 1865, Lee was tho . life, - soul, and arm of the Confede rate resistance, and, in conjunction with "Stonewall" Jackson, more than once brought his cause within apparent reach of success. Like all leaders who rose into prominence on cither side, Lee had been educated at West Point, and, afterwards served in the regular aripy. He distinguished himself in, the' Mexican War (1845) and had risen to the rank of colonel, whe...

MIRACLE OF SCIENCE. TRAIN WITHOUT RAILS AT 800 MILES AN HOUR. NO WHEELS. ' SUSPENDED IN SPACE BY ELEC TRICITY. The air train has arrived! It has come to London unheralded, so . cretly, mysteriously, and it is the most marvellous invention of the age (writes the London "Daily Ex press"). It travels through space without visible means of support, either above or below. At a wizard touch it is away like a flash, de vouring distance at the terrific speed of 300 miles an hour, defy ing all the laws of gravity, trium phant and glorious in its realisa tion of the ideal that engineers and scientists have striven to attain ever sinco tho time of Stephenson and his first locomotive. There is no locomotive on the air train. It needs such antiquated things no more than it needs rails. Electri city is the driving power, but it is electricity harnessed and trained to perform the apparently ? impossible nnd give a negative to nature.

THE THUNDERSTORM. ALPHA AND OMEOA OF THB HUMAN SPIRIT. There is nothing' that «trik«r such , general (and not . only personal) awe , 4a-the thunderstorm. It is indeed a sort of celestial crime, a re* venge of the elements awakoning at onco our horror and our panic. ..Nothing1 will disperse a mob like a . thunderstorm, nothing will invest a critical moment with such irresist ible significance.

By night it constrain* many to lock themselves up, or even to seek cellars, as if it were a demon that could thus be exor cised or excluded. At sea, It wields even greater ter rors than on land, and its wild majesty and lurid grandeur perhaps loom most gigantic in the Alps.

PART 5. CHAPTER XIII. THE SHADOW OF THE BARON. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 November 1914

PART 5. CHAPTER xin: THE SHADOW OF THE rBARON. Just as the Cossacto had so simply said, the telega awaited them in a retired spot beyond the fork of the road. By the time they reached it the clouds parted and allowed the moon an opportunity to peep out, which gave Dugdale a chance to cast his eyes over the outfit Vladimir had provided. He made no remark, since time was so valuable and every minute count ed : but as be tossed the two bags into the vehicle he saw the driver had the saddles, just as he promised, two of the queer Cossack build, and the third "a genuine lady's saddle, which Owen had not believed could be found within fift5 miles of RuBt chukl 4 . Vladimir was indeed a wonder, and had a peculiar ability for ferreting out things. . There were three horses attached to the waggon, something seldom seen; but a Cossack could handle half a dozen of the beasts with greater ease 'than any Roman horseman ever ex hibited in those days o!

RICE-THROWING AT WEDDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 November 1914

RICE-THROWING AT WEDDINGS. The origin of rice-throwing at wed dings is accounted for by a quaint Chinese legend., , A great .sorcercr, Chao, becarao jealous of another sorcerer, a wo m^n, Peacli Blossom, and thereby conceived a plan to destroy her. He persuaded her parent to give her in marriage to her supposed son, and craftily chose the most unlucky day for the wedding-the day when the golden Pheasant" was in tho ascendant-so that, when the bride entered tho red chair, tho spirit bird would kill her with its beak. Peach Blossom, however, prudent ly gave directions for rice to be scattered at the door,- and thus she passed out unscathed, while tho spirit-bird was busy eating what she had provided for it. Some women seem to know just where to put things. They put on their hata at tho right angle, they put on an air of innocenco at the right moment, and they put their furniture and husbands in their right places. It is wonderful.

LIGHT HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 November 1914

LIGHT HUMODK. In the latter half of the 18th cen tury one of the members of a little scientific, society in Liverpool laid a curious wager. . He bet a brother scientist that he would read a news* paper by the flight of a farthing dip at a distance of 30 feet. The B. S., finding tho feat difficult at even a sixth of the distance, cheer fully accepted the wager. Tho layer merely coated .the in side of a shallow wooden box with sloping pieces of looking-glass, so as to form a. concave lens, placed behind his farthing dip, and readily .deciphered the small pricit at the stipulated distance. Hie experiment was witnessed by a Liverpool dock-master. He was a thinking man and saw groat pos sibilities in thiB learned jest. He straightway adapted tho principle to lighthouse requirements, and forth with the modern reflected light, with its miles of reflected range and untold life-saving powers, sprang into being. .

An Incident of Talavera. 1 1 . Talavera, fought on July 27 and 2Q, 3809, was most exhaust ing- fight for both armies. » The Spanish July heat and the long continued fighting had worn out French and British alike. Long before noon on the second day hos tilities ceased by common consent. The English received rations of bread and wine, the French started pre paring a cooked meal with their usual culinary alacrity. A small stream, a tributary of the Tagus, traversed the battlefield and separated the rival armies. The scorching sun made this the Mecca of both parties ; they gradually ap proached the brook, throwing down muskets as a guarantee of good faith, and eagerly' drank of its waters. Chat and chaff were freely interchanged,- brandy - flasks and wineskins mutually offered, and that chivalrous friendliness outside the hours of the actual conflict which so often characterised the relations of the French and British in the Peninsula was strikingly mani fested. While the hale an»l hear...

CHAPTER XV. VLADIMIR STARTS A LANDSLIDE [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 13 November 1914

CHAPTER XV. VLADIMIR STARTS A LANDSLIDE The night wore on. It would never be forgotten by at least one of the participants in the wild ride. Dugdale might have thought it a protty tough experience, but that consideration for himself was ontirely overwhelmed by regard for his com panion. He insisted upon using what rough cushions the telega boasted so that they would in a measuro protect Isoldo from cruel contact with sun dry Bharp edges of the scat and side of the swaying; bounding vehicle, during those hurricane bursts of speed. She saw what he- was doing and demurred. "-Ah, monsieur, you rob yourself. I cannot, will not, allow you to do so much," was the way in which she expressed the feeling of gratitude that swelled within her heart Dugdalo was courteous, but firm. He meant to have his way in this case, at least. He even declared, with the utmost sang frofd, that he particularly enjoyed being punched in the back and ribs by those protect ing corners. Why, it was as good as a mas...
