AVIATION AND WAR. DEVELOPMENT OF THE NEW ARM. THE POSITION IN EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
AVIATION AND WAR. I I DEVELOPMENT OF THE NEW ARM. , THE POSITION IN EUROPE, The war now being waged will test many theories regarding the part which aviation will play in modern warfare. In Tripoli the Italian army used this new arm of military forces to reconnoitre and also to attack the Arab encampments by means of bombs. In the Balkan war the avia tors played an important part, but this war must prove the adaptability of air craft, of both types, lighter-than air and heavier-than-air. It is report ed that five Zeppelin airships have been destroyed. It is generally admitted that the French aviators are the most skilled and the most daring in the world, and in the number of aeroplanes as in the. number of firms which make the machines, she has a great advantage over any other nation. Both Ger many and Great Britain have made very rapid progress, and Great Bri tain's aeroplanes form a very formid able branch both for attack and de fence. The French Air Fleet. According to Lieutenant...

A KINEMA CITY. INHABITANTS ALL ENGAGED IN PICTURE BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
A KINEMA CITY. INHABITANTS ALL ENGAGED IN PICTURE BUSINESS. William Kirby, a kinema actor, was recently mauled to death by a lioness at Universal City. But few who read this announcement knew that the ac cident sent a whole town into mourn ing and temporarily held up its busi- j ness. I For Kirby was an inhabitant of an extraordinary city which has been en tirely constructed for the purpose of | producing kinema pictures with the precision with which a factory pro duces cakes of soap. Tie place is known as Universal City, and is situated in Los Angeles. Its rise is entirely due to the kine matograph craze, for one-half of the town consists of studios, scenery fac tories, a zoo, where trained animal actors are kept, sheds for housing air ships and aeroplanes which partici pate in "movie" plots, and carpenters' shops where fifteen master carpenters work all day in producing "properties" for the film pictures. Every inhabitant of the city is di rectly or indirectly connected with the p...
DON'T TAKE AWAY THEIR PINS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
DON'T TAKE AWAY THEIR PINS. A broker talked luminously the other day of the decline in the value of securities. He said we must be careful not to legislate too harshly against the country's vested interests, or the prosperity of these interests, and with it the country's prosperity, would be impaired. He illustrated his meaning with a story. There was a school teacher, he said, who ex claimed impatiently one afternoon: "Johnny Jones, -what are you fum bling with there?" Johnny hung, his head and. was. si lent. But the tell-tale of the class spoke up: "It's a pin he's got, ma'am." "Well, talj:e it from him," said the teacher, "and bring it here to me." This was done, and then, in' a mol lified voice, the teacher said: "Now, . Johnny. Jones, got up and recite your history lesson." But Johnny did not obey. He blush ed, hung his head, and sat still. "Johnny," said the teacher, "rise, I tell you." ' Then the little fellow blurted out distressfully: - - - • • • "I can't, ma'am. That there...
MALAY SUPERSTITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
MALAY SUPERSTITIONS. A Malay child has to be sturdy to survive the perils of his birth and babjhood. Only an iron -constitution could bear the balls of rice that are stuffed into his mouth or the cold hath which greets him immediately on his appearance in the world. But it is not that a Malay mother is indifferent': to the physical welfare of her off spring. When her child falls ill ri"o' one could, be more solicitous. -The1 house and the village are ransacked to Find the cause of the sickness. If it is suspected to be in the interior Of the house, the services of a native doc- ' tor are obtained. After concentrating his thoughts upon the pit of h'is' stomach for a time he will prob-ibly call for . "female cocoa-nut." Taking' then a knife of a peculiar shape, ;he mutters incantations in a forgotten, tongue and proceeds to sbav.e ,. the nut. If the person who has bewitched the child is living in the house tie will awake the next morning withl'a: skull as bald as the cocoanut itself. ...
FOR THE FARMER. NITRIFICATION. A Simple Explanation. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
f ~ FOR THE FARMER. j I • . I NITRIFICATION. A Simple Explanation. The average farmer has, as a rule only a very vague idea as to what is' meant by the term "'nitrification," but the following article by Messrs. Pat erson and Scott, which appeared in a recent issue of the Victorian "Jour nal of Agriculture," provides a sim j pie explanation which should be read j by every "man on the land": — Different Forms of Nitrogen. Nitrogen exists in soils in several forms. It exists as nitrate nitrogen, as ammonia nitrogen, and as organic nitrogen. The nitrate form is the I only one on which . ordinary plants win reach their full development. The ammonia form of nitrogen is of im portance chiefly because it is more or less easily changed into the nitrate lorm. The organic form of . nitrogen is practically useless to plants. In all soils, by far the greatest bulk . . .llltr°gen is organic nitrogen, ihis kind of nitrogen is present in the soil humus, and in the various kinds of animal and veget...
THE HAT-PIN MENACE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
THE HAT-PIN MENACE. Everyone knows that a hat-pin point, protruding several inches beyond the brim of a woman's hat, is a source of danger to anyone in close proximity 10 the wearer of the pin. Probably no one sees the more serious conse quences so frequently as the eye specialist. Sometimes the injury con sists of a mere scratch, which heals readily and leaves no permanent de fect. On the other hand, every now and then the scratch becomes in fected, and serious impairment of sight, if not actual loss of the eye* re sults. One who has seen these bad results is for ever alarmed for him self and others when he sees a pro truding hat-pin point in a crowded car or theatre lobby, or wherever peo ple are closely crowded together.' It ought not to be necessary to pass laws to present such accidents, but as the number of such cases does not de | crease it would seem to be desirable to make the wearing of shorter hat pins obligatory. There are devices on the market for covering and protect i...
Correspondence. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
Correspondence. To the Editor. Sir,—Referring to your report of the School. Committees' Association. last issue, a slight error needs cor rection. I did not use the expression teachers' fads" in referring to sub jects for consideration by, the Asso ciation. My allusion was " so-called " educational fads," which have been Go widely criticised by parents. For these the teachers are not responsible, as they merely carry out the currieu Iaji prescribed by the Education De partment ; and many, 1 know, dis approve of the inclusion in the school programme of certain subjects at creaeut beinsr taught, and which are described as " faddy."— -Yours, etc., B. GARNET. . 2farra.*Aa, Sept. 5th.

THE SLEEP OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
1 THE SLEEP OF CHILDREN. A healthy infant will sleep nearly twenty hours out of the twenty-four during its first month. This it will do without rocking, and it is a pity to teach a child to expect you to rock it to sleep; it occupies time and doea the child no good. The other habit of walking with it until it chooses to fall asleep is even worse. Begin as you mean to go on; lay it down awake, and, if Nature re quires it, sleep will come; :f not, no rocking can force it. But this should be taught from the beginning, and bad habits of this kind, as a rule, begin with the nurse, and are in full force before the mother has a chance to exercise her authority. The baby should not be rocked, nor should it be placed in a swinging cradle. Train him from the first to sleep in a stationary bed, and put a tiny hair pillow under his head. JdLe should always be placed on his right side, and care should be taken that the face is never covered. Sound development is next to im possible unless the sl...
MAKE UP YOUR MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
MAKE UP YOUR MIND. Don't grumble or fume when tough work lies ahead, But make up your mind, man, to do it! Show courage and pluck, don't cow ard's tears shed, If quickly you'd see yourself through it. Should gathering clouds your horizon obscure, And the storm in its fury burst, Don't flinch from the ordeal, but brave ly endure, And boldly prepare for the worst. Be manly, and tackle your duty each day. Prove you've nerve and the vfill power to do it. Help your fellows along who have dropped by the way. Give cheerfully; you'll never rue it. 'Tis a kind action here, and a little help there Prom a comrade who's willing to give it That heartens a fellow his troubles to bear, And finally sees him outlive it. If e'er you are tempted to whimper and doubt When the pathway of duty is rough, Remember the heart that is steadfast and stout Is the one that withstands a re buff. And tackle with confidence, valor and skill All hindrances placed in your way. You'll quick climb the hill if you work ...
Had Had Experience. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
Had Had Experience. It was at a police-court, near a gar rison town in the West of England, and the prisoner was charged with being drunk and disorderly, and fight ing in the street. He was a fine, -well-built, strapping young fellow, but evidently an old stager, for the magistrate, after in flicting a fine, which was paid by a friend in court, asked him if he had any work to do. Prisoner replied that he had not. "You seem to be brought here very often for assaulting and fighting. Why don't you go for a soldier?" "Not me; not if I know it," replied prisoner, quickly. "I did go for one once, and he very nearly strangled me." The poetry of Japan finds expres sion in'its advertising. For example: "Our wrapping paper is as strong as the hide of an elephant. Goods forwarded with the speed of a can nonjball. Our silks and,satins are as soft as the cheeks of a pretty woman, as beautiful as the Tainbow. Our parcels are packed with as much care as a young married woman takes of her husband."...

FAREWELL BY DEPUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 18 September 1914
FAREWELL BY DEPUTY. The other morning as a departing trans-Atlantic steamer was casting oft its lines and swinging out into the stream, an elderly business man hast ily embraced a lady who was one of the passengers and rushed down the gang plank to the wharf. Going hurriedly up to a melancholy loafer who was watching the busy crowd, the gentleman drew him be hind a pile of luggage and said: "Want to earn a shilling or two?" "You bet I do." "You see that lady in black on the bridge there?" said the elderly one. ."Certainly." "Well, that's my wife going aibroad. Now, of courste, she'll expect me to stand here for the next twenty min utes, while the steamer is backing and filling in, waving my handker chief and watching her out of eight. D'ye see?"
