THE SEX OF AN EGG. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle and North Coast Advertiser — 21 August 1903

THE SEX OF AN EGG. Although practice and science have both failed to discover any exact method by which the sex of an egg can be determined, an enter prising poultry-keeper asserts that he solved the problem to his entire satisfaction long since, and he is liberal enough to show others; how they may do the same. Here is his method : — Hold the egg before a .strong light, and make a tube of the hand in order to view the egg through it. In this position a dark spot will be noticed in the egg, and it is tae whereabouts of this spot that indicates the sex of the egg. If the spot appears on the-top of the yolk, he asserts that a cock will be the result of the hatch ; if the spot is nearly on top, a cock prob ably ; if on the side, midway, a hen may. certainly be: expected. ?

Papua Land and the Drink Traffic. The decision of the House of Representatives to prohibit the importation of liquor into Papua causes some embarrass ment to the Department for External Affairs. Upon the department will fall the task of administering the new law, as well as of compensating ex patriated storekeepers and of finding revenue to make up the loss of^3,pooa3'earwhich will be incurred. How it will be possible to retain the white settlers in Papua under a tee total regime the 'officials profess themselves at a loss, for the moment, to tell,j White men who travel into the fever zones, where the riskj of ague and malaria is a dajly one, must, they say, carry brandy with them as a medicine. If, how ever, brandy is to be admitted as medicine, every white settler will find it necessary to lay in a supply — and so the old order will oe established under a hypocritical disguise. This, it is urged, is but one aspect of the administrative difficulties caused by the advent of prohibit...

OUR ESSAY. OPPORTUNITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle and North Coast Advertiser — 21 August 1903

OUR ESSAY. OPPOE.TUNITIES. I.BY iiECUNDUS.) In our last essay we dealt Math ' Ideals in Lift' ; in this we desire to show how aspirations of man kind may be achieved. Lofty ideals have been reached and many ap parently impossible positions at tained to by making the best of the opportunities afforded in life. In the sphere of religion the well known axiom, 'New opportunities come to tnose wno improve tieir present ones,' stands good in every department of life. By making good use of what we have we get what we have not. By doing what we can, we gain strength and ability to do that which seemed impossible bo us. ' The world is familiar with the law in the matter of money making. The foundations of colossal fortunes have been laid in the taking advantage at first of little opportunities.' There are to day wealthy men in the Australian Commonwealth who began their career with the pick and shovel and other insignificant tools^ — earning a little mones' by doing such work as repairing ro...
