WHERE IT IS COLD. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 29 June 1917

WHERE IT IS COLD. On the hottest day In summer a flying man may be in the ^.rctlc re gions in ten minutes by mounting to a height of 10,000£t., just as the climb er may pass through all the shades of temperature by climbing Klllma Njaro, the giant peak which ri-es above the snow-line from the Equator. ITe commences with the tropical jun glo and ends amid eternal snow. The fact is that the temperature Is invariably low at 10,000ft. and over, whether at the tropics or the poles, and it is quite likely to be lowest at the Equator. Airmen well know the intense cold of those upper regions, nnd they need the rig-out of a Shac kleton if they would mount to 20,000 ft. abovo the earth's surface. In fact, there is little variation of tempera ture in those upper reaches of the atmosphere. It is much the same in summer as winter, except for the dif ference which a high wind makes. Even in the depth of a hot summer the airman will encounter forty de Tees of frost at 10,000ft" and at twite fhat a...

Federal Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 29 June 1917

Federal Parliament. (Prom the Gallery.) "It smacks of a revolution in ideals," said my colleague, who lias been with me in the Gallery of the Common wealth Parliament since the first days of the Federation. We were watching the new and old members taking their seats, and marking tho new members for future work. The state of the House of Representatives did smack of a revolution in ideals, and it was hard to believe it was only a few months since the Prime Minister, Mr. Hughes, was helpless before a doubt ing following and a bitterly aggres sive Opposition. What had happened at the elections could be gathered from the way the new members grouped themselves, and the type of men they were. The Prime Minister no longer sat in the centre of a Treasury bench filled by Ministers, who, if they had found themselves, had certainly not found one another. Tho election campaign had pcted as a precipitant. Ministers had found ono another, and the dis tinction of Liberals and National Labor had di...

As a rule the magistrates only ^at once a week, but to-day a special court had been convened to deal with the case of Alma Beresford. The inhabitants of Norcaster were only just awakening to the magni tude of tlie affair that was being transacted in their midst. They were i filling up the magistrates' room, push ing and jostling one another in their determination to hear what was going on, and quite a crowd of them, un able to get in, stood in groups on the pavement discussing such stray items of news as filtered through to them. Mr. Burton, coming out, had al most to force his way through them. He looked up and down, then catch ing sight of the one cab the station boasted, coming towards him, he set off at a brisk pace to meet it.

THE ROSE A UNIVERSAL FLOWER [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 July 1917

THE ROSE A UNIVERSAL FLOWER , According to a botanist, tlie rose is the oldest flower of which there is any record; its antiquity is such-that all account of its origin has been lost. It is mentioned in some of the earliest [ writings of the world, and was known , to the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Persians. Like our country, of which it is the chosen emblem, its empire is world-wide. It is a singular fact, too, that every continent on the globe, with the solitary exception of Australia, produces wild roses. Even the frozen regions of the Far North, where the summer lasts but two or three months, produce their wild roses, and travel | lers through Greenland, Kamtschatka and Northern Siberia find, in the pro 1 per season, an abundance of blossoms, ! while the crews of whaling vessels ! which 'call at Spitzbergen usually ; come off shore with bouquets of the native Spitzbergen rose.
