A South African Hero. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 9 July 1914

A South African Hero. During the festivities'in connec tion with the opening of the rail wuy extension to Buluwayo, an ac cident of a character both unique nr.d alarming occurred, attended by. the bravest deed I ever saw, says a. private of the Scottish Rifles. I was stationed at Gaberones at the time, and on the day in ques tion a large number of trains de luxe were conveying. guests,to Bulu wayo to participate, in . tlie opening of the first stretch of railway con nected with the Cape-to-Cairo line. As is well known, to each train is attached an electric dynamo car for lighting purposes, these machines being driven by oil power. Whilst talking to an acquaintance, I noticed a sudden flare shoot up from this car, and there emerged two men, the one in flames from the waist, and the oiher from the shoul ders. The former, mad with pain, was frantically rushing over the veldt, fanning' the furious fire blaz ing upon him. The other showed a presence of mind rarely, if ever, exemplified i...

THE FARM. The Triumph of Soil Inoculation. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 9 July 1914

THE FARM-.'" k The Triumph of Soil In oculation. There are many' discoveries of ' great value to humanity which at first did not appear to justify all i the claims that were made for them. ! The inoculation of soil' with nitro i gen-gathering bacteria to facilitate ; the growing of leguminous crops, such as lucerne, is an instance in . point. There were many reasons i for this .seeming failure. One was I the fact that results obtained by j .scientific men in a laboratory could : not be duplicated by farmers in the iield because of luck of scientific training and knowledge. Another was the fact that far too much was expected from the soil inoculation. Many farmers, getting the idea into their heads that fertility u as sup plied to the soil through the in strumentality of the bacUria, at once jumped to the conclusion that ino culation would take the' place of fertilisers—a fatal error. The ser vices of the bacteria are practically listless to the legume, whatever it nuiy be, unless th...

The City merchant looked keenly at the boy who stood facing him with hat in hand. "As you doubtless know, sir, my father is dead. Almost his last words were that I should come to London to see you. lie gave me this to give to you." Mr. Simpson took the letter, and methodically opened the ens elope. , Having read the contents, he placed it 011 his table and once more looked at the boy. " Your- father--Harry Wilmot—was one of my oldest friends. I am very grieved to hear that he died so poor. In this lei tor he asks mo to find you some-thing to do -in my oflico. I have decided to give you a trial. Come and see me again in the morning." _Percy Wilmot expressed his thanks in suitable terms, and .then left the ! private office.

This Pencil will Write in the Dark. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 9 July 1914

This PencH will Write in the Dark. A recent invention that will prove of value to doctors, doteetives, ro porters, policcincn, or anyone, in fact, who has occasion to write or to take notes in the dark, is that of a pencil that furniehos its own. light as it passes along ovor the surface of the paper. The idea is simplicity itself. It consists of a pencil that has, in the tube through which the point for writing protrudes, a small accumu lator and an electric lamp. This little lamp throws a small disc of light, bo small that it can be hidden by the hand, yet this light is quite sufficient to guide the wri ter in moving the point of his pencil for the proper formation of characters. Notes could be taken " at the thea tre when the house was in dark ness, doctors would find many uses for it, detectives in hi ling could make brief notes as they proceeded with their duties, and the very busy reporter would find a thousand and one uses for it almost any month in the year. Although the lig...

Welsh was favorite at 6 to 4 on. From the outset Welsh forced the fighting, the American being content to net largely on the defensive in long I range work, but he was ready to send over a heavy punch when the distance suited. Both defended finely, and the ex hibitions of skill and ring general ship were warmly applauded by the appreciative onlookers. There was considerable excitement in the third round. Welsh dodged and avoided by a narrow margin a vicious straight right aimed at his jaw. Then he took up the attack spiritedly, and twice rattled Ritchie's head with uppercuts. Up to the so mi tli round the Eng lish champion scored in the infighting, ; Ritchie's display in this regard prov ing disappointing to his admirers.

Porcy had a small but comfort able cabin to himself, in which he proceeded to stow away his bag gage. When he went on deck they were just off Southend. Though longing to know their destination, he bore in mind Da Silva's warn ing, and asked no questions. That gentleman had joined him on deck. "I suppose you wish to know where we are going ?" he began, with a smile. "Well, I don't mind tell ing you—to Antwerp." He laughed when he saw the look of disappointment on Percy's face. At that port they stayed but a short time. Numerous heavy packing cases were taken on board, and once more they put out to sea. The captain and most of the crew were English. At times Percy was tempted to try to get information out of them, but he abstained. When they had been at sea lor a week, Da Silva summoned Percy to his cabin.
