Nothing was found on him but a £100-note, and this, he pleaded, be longed to his master. The manager, however, was relent less, and pricing the pane at £5, he returned the yokel £95. The latter went on his way, and was seen no more, an 1 the manager to tliia day is looking for nomeone to change his £100-note, which ivas a forged one.
Cross Breeding Wheat. PROFESSOR BIFFEN'S DISCOVERY [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 29 July 1914
Cross Breeding Wheat. PKOFESSOll BIFFEN'3 DISCOVERY An important discovery relating to tlie cross breeding of wheat in order that all t!ie essential qualities may be produced in one specific grade has just been made by Professor Bitten and his fellow workers at the Cambridge University. English wheat, while very proliGc in yield, is lacking in the qnality known to millers and bakers its " strength," upon which depends the light and well piled character of bread. The typical strong wheat is Canadian, that grown in the province of Manitoba. Attempts have been made to grow this grade in England with but little success, for it is found that when transplanted that the wheat either loses its " strength" or produces variable or poar yields. Scientists, how over, by a series of experiments, have proved that strength and power to yield have gcnetic origins winch can bo com bined in the one grain. This has led to the cross breeding of a Canadian and an English wheat, the most- famous of which...

CAN THE TITANIC BE RAISED? [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 29 July 1914
CAN THE TITANIC BE RAISED? A scheme is on foot to raise the Titanic, the £2,000,000 liner that struck an iceberg and sank with im mense treasure. A Denver engineer has elaborated a plan by which he thinks the giant boat could he brought to the surface. In some steel mills electric magnets lift masses of steel and iron weighing as much as 150 tons. Why not adapt this idea to the Titanic? says the en gineer. His scheme is to lower all round the sunken vessel a large number of pow erful magnets operated from small steamboats, one boat to each magnet. These magnets, energised by electric currents, would be forcetTagainst the side of the steel ship, and when power was applied and the cables attaching the magnets to the smaller boats wound up, the Titanic would be lifted clear of the ocean bed and permit divers to make necessary repairs, pump the water out of the vessel, and get 1 er afloat again.
