SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. ITS TERRORS : ITS DELIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
,SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. -+------- ITS TERRORS : ITS DELIGHTS. Except for journeys round the fringe of South America, travelling there is. a desperate business. No where else surely in the world are fevers so. malignant, forests and rivers so vast and uninhabited, and insects and snakes so murderous. More than one person has started up the Amazon, meaning to reach Peru and travel to Lima via one of the Amazon tributaries, and then by an unfinished railway which he strikes some few hundred miles out side Lima; but has been turned back at Para, at the very mouth of the river, by a murderous onslaught of mosquitoes, wasps, and bees of in creqdible size, and chigoes which per s:sted in laying eggs in the skin of his toes. A French traveller, who started from Guayaquil, crossed the Andes of Ecuador to the Amazon, and then descended the river, could not make up his mind which scenery was gran der and which horrors were worse, these of the mountains or the river. The well-known ships of the...

QUEENSCLIFF -PATRIOTIC FUND. To the Editor.

THIEVES IN BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
THIEVES IN BUSINESS. The Diamond-merchants of Hatton Garden are among the wealthiest traders in London, and one would as soon expect to find pickpockets in the peerage as a gang of robbers of the worst type trading as diamond-mer chants in a dignified suite of rooms in Hatton Garden. Nevertheless, some time ago .:a gang of experienced criminals were in business in Hatton Garden as dia mond merchants on a considerable scale, and their reason for setting up in that particular line was that they had £70,000 worth of rough diamonds to dispose of, their entire collection having been stolen from a post-office safe in South Africa.. It isn't often that criminals are so bold as the men of this gang must have been, for Hatton Garden is per haps one of the best-policed locali ties of all London, and considerable courage must have been necessary for them to have established them selves there, with no more lawful reason than that they had £70,000 worth of stolen diamonds which they wished to se...
THE FARM. SPRAY FOR POTATOES. LIME-SULPHUR V. BORDEAUX MIXTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
TH.E FARM. SPRAY FOR POTATOES. LIME-SULPHUR, V. BORDEAUX MIXTURE. The New York Agricultural Experi ment Station has recently conducted some important experiments with re gard to a spray for potatoes, and have arrived at the following con clusions : The Tiformation at hand is quite sufficient as a basis for some final conclusions. It. seems evident that lime-sulphur is not destined to take the place of bordeaux mixture as . spray for potatoes, in spite of the fact that it is cheaper and no doubt very convenient to use. Utnder more favourable conditions, in which late blight occurred earlier in the season and to a greater extent, the treat ment with lime-sulphur might have produced different results, but at pre sent it is not promising. However, the experiments have not been car ried far enough to determine what may be expected under favourable conditions. The lime-sulphur proved harmless to the potato foliage as far as burn ing is concerned, but it proved to have a distinct dwarfing ...

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) UNDER THE BAN -0OF THE 0ZAR,.o ---- OR, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. ty St. George Rathborne, Author of "Omar Kassam," etc. PART 8. CHAPTER XXI.-(Continued.) A" large crowd had gathered near the barracks, and numerous soldiers were present. As Dugdale drew near he discover ed a man mounted on a foam-speck ed horse that had evidently run alongside of Gratschefl. This personage was a stranger to him, a large, well-made, bearded Russian, with an air of pride and a cold, grey eye. It flashed upon Dugdale in an in stant that this might be the baron mentioned in connection with the beautiful Isolde, and accordingly the individual became an object of con siderable interest in his eyes. And appareiitly he was also an object of deep solicitude with the lordly stran ger, for those cold eyes flamed dan gerously as the guard brought the prisoner closer. Dugdale saw that every one, even the great General Gratscheff, seemed to be very humble in the presence of this mogul. One alo...

The Mayor trusted that those present would show their appreciation of the work of preparation and that the fair would be in every way a success. Mr Hopkins, a. member of the vestry, thanked those who had so kindly cont...

A PUGILISTIC CABBY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
A PUGILISTIC CABBY. -+------- Mr. Grant Allen used to tell ..of .da amusing experience with a' London cab-driver; " After - leavinig :'hs pu Lsher's, he hired a cab to drive to a brother, novehst. OU arriving at his destination he tendered the, cabby four shillings, which was a little o'er the proper fare. The driver, however, was not satisfied,. and wanted six shillings. Grant Al len refused to pay more, whereupon the driver offered to fight him for it. Allen, who knew as much about the art of self-defence as the man in the moon, was rather taken back at the man s request ; however, he agreed, saying, -"The very thing, my friend will hold the money and. act as ref?t ree, so come along." Cabby got. down and followed him into, the gar den. Allen then placed the six shil lings into his friend's hand, took oAf his coat, rolled up his shirt-sleeves all with an air of cheerful alacrity, and bade the man come on. His, ankiety was intense, but it relaxed' as he watched the cabman's face, s...

WHAT THE NIGGER THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
WHAT THE NIGGER THOUGHT. Admiral De Horsey is an excellent raconteur, and from out of his fund of anecdote, does not hesitate to bring, forth a story against himself, if it be a good one. The follow ing is one of the best, especially when told by the Admiral himself. It was when he was Commodore in the West Indies, and his ship lying in Port Royal harbour, Jamaica. One night he went ashore to dine. with the Governor at Kingston, but forget *to .earn the password for the night. Returning on board after dinner, he was stopped at the doek yard gates by a sentry of the West India Regiment. "Who go dar-?" demanded-the black warrior, bringing his liayo.net to the charge.: "A friend," came the reply out of the dark. '"Wal, Massa Frien', what am de countersign ?." "That's all right, you know me,''" said the Commodore. "Me know nobody no got dat countersigi," and he brought his. ba onet perilously near the officer.. "You no can pass h'yar." "But I am Commodore De Hor sey." The nigger broke i...

A MAN WHO WAS HANGED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
A MAN WHO WAS HANGED. - +-v-- It was the custom in the good old days, especially in Ireland, to hang condemned men for half an hour, and then hand them over to their friends. A man named Mahoney was hanged ih this way. At the end of half an hour his body was given to his friends, who put him in a cof~n they had brought with them, and gaefoped off with him on a cart. But, before they were out of sight of the gallows authorities, the corpse in the exuberance of his joy sat up in the coffin and shouted "HIooroo !" A "pall," terrified lest ,his exhibition of vitality should cause the execu tioner to come after them, hit the hanged man playfully on the head with his stick, remarking, "Kape quiet, ye divil." The sileacing was so effectual that the victim of it never woke again, but was well and truly waked that same evening. There was no doubt that the blow on the head had killed him. The facts came to the knowledge of the 'authorities, and a justice was ap pealed to for a warrant for the...

WON THE KETTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
WON THE KETTLE. A bishop was visiting some houses in a well-known mining district.- On entering one of the houses he saw, to his great surprise a number of men seated in a circle on the floor, in the middle of which was a bright copper kettle. Being much interested in workmen and their ways, he inquired of one of the men what was going on. "We're trying," said the miner, "to see who can tell the biggest lie, and the kettle will be presented to the man who tells it." The .bishop, greatly shocked, ex claimed, "Why, my good man, I never told a lie in my life." The miners, thinking that his lord ship was competing .for the. prize, 'nanimously cried, "Give 'im th' ket4 tle 1'"
A PECULIAR POST-OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
f A PECULIAR POST -OFFICE. 'Begiling vessels still go round Cape Horn, just as they did in the six .teenth century, navigators finding it very difficult to make the winding passage through the Straits of Ma gellan. Sometimes, however, on account of stormy weather; ships have to hover off theHorn for the greater part of ---a ronth. Cape Horn is a big mass' of rock, which rises abruptly from the sea and forms a small island. ,lpon one of the ledges of this rock there stands a covered barrel. Ship captains who are passing around the Cape send a boat ashore 'at this point, if possible, to take' from the barrel whatever mail matter is going in their direction, and drop in it whatever is desired shall go in the opposite direction. This mail :box is the world's most southern .post-office, and it does not need ae postmaster.
THE KITCHEN GARDEN. JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
.THE KITCHEN GARDEN. JANUARY. This is the month when frequent attention must be given to young crops of Cabbages, Cauliflowers, and others of the genus; also Cucumbers, Let -tuces, and Celery, which should never be allowed to have their growth checked through deficiency ofmoisture. Some of the earlier crops will have been exhausted before this timne, when the ground should be cleared and prepared for a succession of digging, trenching, and manuring, as may be required. It is not advisable to dig the manure deeply into the soil, the usual way being to spread it on the surface, and fork in lightly. The digging fork should- be used in place of the spade wherever the soil is of such a nature that it can be used effectively; hoeing -should also be freely practised during the dry weather, not only to destroy weeds, but also to maintain a loose sur face, thus lessening the evaporation of moisture. Herbs for drying should be cut when is flower, hung in bunches; and dried in the shade. O'nio...
THE HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 January 1915
THEHOUSHOLD,: flow TO MAXE CIDER.-To make good pider the apples should be allowed to bang on the tree as long as the wind and frosty nights will let them. The riper they are the better the cider. They are picked up and placed in a large heap either in the orchard or at the cider mill, and are allowed to lie a few days to com plete the ripening process, in which the starch is converted into sugar, and if any are found bruised or rotten put them in a heap by themselves for an inferior cider to make vinegar. They are then rasped 9r ground into pulp. If the weather is cool and the apples are not quite ripe, it Is better to let the pulp remain in the vat t few days before pressing out the juice. 'his gives the cider a higher colour, makes it sweeter, and of better flavour. The process of pressing is simple, but re quires some skill. Four boards about six inches wide are nailed together in a square, the size it is desired to make the eheese, say from four to five feet. This is placed on t...
