The Murderous House-Fly. CAMPAIGN AGAINST IT IN U.S.A. Why Not One in Australia? [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 January 1920

The Murderous House-Fly. CAMPAIGN AGAINST IT IN U.S.A. Why Not One in Australia? There is 110 need to explain why house-flies should be destroyed- Every one knows that by this time. This is the story of how an American news paper conducted a campaign against these disease-spreading insects. The. -paper in question, which is pub lished in Washington, the capital of the United States, offered a large number of .prizes, varying from £.» down to five shillings, to the boy who could catch most flies. At the same time it pub lished all the different ways known of killing and catching flies. A thirteen-year-old boy named Bur dette was the winner ofthe first prize with a total catch of 1)44,000 flies, and the .total kill during the fortnight given for the contest was over seven millions of flies. It might be imagined that dead flies would he difficult to count. They are, hut it was found that a gill measure held 1GOO flies, and the catches were tallied in this way Young Burdette used cages ...

Original Poetry. REAL FRIENDSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 January 1920

REAL FRIENDSHIP. As long the dreary paths of Life Our wandering footsteps stray, Where Insincerity is rife Its clouds obscure the way; All men — our foes may seem to be, But should we shirk life's fight While shining thro' the mists we see Real Friendship's kindly light? It steals into our souls to soothe The wounds of Doubt and Pride, It makes the roughest road quite smooth, It stems Despair's full tide. It gives us strength to bear the rod Wielded with tyrant's might, Most wonderful — great gift of God, Read Friendship's kindly light. The Heaven-sent advice of friends Will guide us on our way, Will bring Content — whate 'er God sends, To live just for the day. And oh! we pray that we may see In future what is right, Shine on — lead on — perpetually Real Friendship 's kindly light. — J. J. Sheehan, Mayfield.

TOO MUCH PAPER MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 February 1920

TOO MUCH PAPER MONEY. But the European belligerents were not content with reducing the purchas ing power of gold in this way. Im pelled by their urgent need, and not sufficiently alive to the danger of the policy, they went on issuing more and more paper until the purchasing power of their money went far below the reduced purchasing power of the gold corresponding to it. And they did not stop when the war ended, and few, if any. have stopped now. The anioun'. of money in circulation per head of the population is almost ludicrous.' To every man, woman, and child in the United Kingdom there is now about £13 or .£14 instead of only AM or £~> before the war, and the amounts here are quite small com pared with those in the other coun tries—the French have over 1000 francs each (about £25 12s. 6d. at the present rate of exchange). The result is that while a grain of gold will buy about half what it used to do, marks and francs and pounds will buy fewer of these depreciated grains. ...

Why Things are Dear. THE FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 February 1920

Why Things are Dear. THE FACTS. (By Edward Carman, Professor of Political Economy in the University of London.) Statistics are no doubt great fun, and it is nice to see the public laugh over my complaint to my local Profi teering Committee that the Govern ment has been making the "unreason able profit" of 23,900 per cent, on each £1 note if we put the cost of the paper j and print as high as Id. But, as I ( told our town clerk, the rise of prices is beyond a joke, and what I want to do is to make not only profiteering committees, but also everyone else, see the root-cause of it and demand the one and only effectual remedy. Of course the war started the rise, but hpw did it do it? And why does it continue after the war is over? Some people seem to think that be fore the war nobody wanted to make unreasonable profits, and others think that before the war wage-earners never asked for a rise of wages. But, in fact, before the war, as afterwards, profit-makers tried to make the best prof...

Peculiar Facts of Nature [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 February 1920

Why is there a black sheep in every flock? Because sheep, in their early domesticated condition, were brown or dirty black, and because Nature occasionally "harks back" or reverts to early type in nearly all species. Why does a red flag infuriate a bull? Because, according to one theory, the* animal "sees red." The condition which occurs naturally, in certain circumstances (as on the battlefield), in man, rendering him in different to danger, is produced arti ficially in the bull, with like results. Why does a dog turn round and round before lying down? Because the animal's ancestor, the wild dog, made its bed thus by forming a hollow in the leaves and branches. , Why has the camel got a hump? Because in its natural state it needs an "emergency ration." If deprived of food for several days, it falls back on the fat of its own hump, which then gradually disappears before the limbs are perceptibly reduced. That it carries a reserve of water in its stomach is well known. Why is the und...

In building a Refrigerator, WORKMANSHIP is, next to timber, the most important consideration. For this reason the " FALKLAND" is MADE BY JOINERS and not by jugiprs in the wood-working trade.

Agricultural Notes. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 February 1920

Agricultural Notes. FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND. The monthly circular, dated 24th ult., issued by the Department ot Agriculture for the benefit of farmers and other settlers on the land, con tains the following article on sub jects of considerable interest to them, and to a lesser extent, to the people of the State generally: — The Problem of the Rabbit IS POISON GAS A SOLUTION? The problem of the rabbit is a per ennial one, and likely to be so for long enough. The one lonely beneficial effect of the drought has been a con siderable emptying of the burrows, but there is no indication that the in stinct of the pest for multiplication has received anything but a temporary check. The appalling cost of fighting the nuisance in this State naturally pro vides an equally constant' stimulus in the search for the ideal weapon. The significance during the war of poison gases as exterminators made it inevit able that they should suggest them selves as possible aids in the more domestic problem. Re...

The Claims of Wangi. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 February 1920

The Claims of Wangi. According to expert geologists, Wangi Wangi was the pleasure resort I of the Awaba people long prior to the tenancy of Adam at Eden. Time has ) wrought its changes, and the present inhabitants of Wangi are clamouring for';' connection by road with the modern Awaba. This highway would open the Lake to the people of the Maitland Coalfields, and confer an in estimable boon upon that great centre of industry. The expense at issue is inconsiderable, and the privilege should not be withheld one moment longer than necessary. As a matter of fact, the Land Tax from the area traversed has long since warranted the making of this road. A post office and telephone service should likewise be promptly installed. The time is rapidly approaching when Wangi Wangi will outclass Katoomba as a popular tourists' resort. Already pro perty owners on the Mountains are dismantling buildings, and removing them to the accessible spots by the waterside.

The first of the that we will refer to is the disease, pneumonic influenza, which, according to the latest advices, is causing havoc among the people of America and Japan, and is also affecting, thoagh not so seriously, those of New Zealand and other countries. The sad experi ence that we in Australia had during 1918 and 1919 of the results attendant on the prevalence of this disease, when so man yof both sexes, in the height of vigorous manhood an'I wo manhood, met with untimely deaths owing to being attacked by it, should spur the Federal Health Officials to the moat energetic efforts, to prevent fhe plague from gaining another foot ing within our borders oitside the quarantine areas of the various States.

Names of Parks. For many years the pretty little park at the eastern extremity of New castle has been known as Parnell Place. Now an inconoclast happens along and explains that the correct title of the reserve in question is Farnell Place, in remembrance of James Squire Farnell, formerly Mini ster for Lands in this State. It would be a pleasaant surprise if ^ome other innovator would come forth and pro claim the intelligence that Ordnance Park was a misnomer, and that the dainty square was really Morisset Place, in memory of that intrepid commandant of other days in the early history of Newcastle.
