MARRIAGE CEREMONY IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 19 September 1902

M&RBIAGE CEREMONY I N JAPAN. The marriage ceremony in Japan is rather a novel affair. When two persons - agree to join in wedlock it is ihe custom of the country that each one cf the con tracting parties shall choose some person as sponsor - r rather as guarantor, whose duty is to determine whether or not such a union is proper and will be satisfactory to all concerned. It U especially expected that the bride will be agreeable to the parents of the groom, with whom they are generauy expuuiuu iu ruuiuu. ^.nere is an unwritten law in that country that the children shall be obedient to their parents and conduct 'their business affairs to a great extent to their satisfaction, and, if necessary, provide for their wants in old age. No license ie required t- authorize the marriage, but after being pronounced man and wife by the guar antors that fact must bj made known to a judicial tribunal. wh9re the occurrence is recorded. Should a disagreement arise between tbo ? parties thereaf...

Science. QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 19 September 1902

Science. QUESTIONS. W-&V*aY are BOme bodies, as glass, ,»!/vK, transparent, and others, as '!k£k9 fetono. notP ? The explana tion is to be found in the fact that the continuous medium of apace permeates both transparent bodies, such as glass, ana litht-abortive bodies, Ruch as stone; and this in suzh a considerable degree (owing to the molecular constitu tion of bodies,) that wavcB progressing through the rare medium — luciform waves — ate but little impeded in their motions to the passage of common white light waves through glass and other such 'transparent' subttances. Bat if it should happen (as in tinted glass) that some of the atomic particles, cf which the 'aolid' molecular iramework is built up, have periods of vibration synchronical, or nearly so, with the periods of certain light wavea, those waves — those con stituents of white light — will be sup pressed, communicating the energy of their motion to tbe molecules sympathetic ally excited.

Naturalist WHEN SERPENTS WALKED. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 19 September 1902

Nalnralisi WHEN SEEPENTS WALKED. §?/P2 SNAKE'S foot is something more |Mk than a nonentity. This was jdt proved to a representative of ' Current Literature ' who called the other day at the Smithsonian In stitution. The wise men there who are skilled in anatomy of animals hare recently received a big python that eicsenea ana aiea in wew xorK. trot. X. A. Lucas, who had the remains of tbe twenty-foot snake from tho East in charge, was asked if snakes had fe*t. ' Oh, yes,' said he, and he took down the skeleton of the python, wbich had been stripped of all the fltab eo that the frame work of bones, fastened with tho cartilage, remained as porfect as life. It w&3 coiled up like a bunch of rope and aB light as a kite. It was surprising to know how frail a structure of bone could make a very sapplo snake, able to give an elephant a hard tussle. ' Yes,' said Professor Lucas, again, ' snakes have feet, and the best example among living species is tho python.' He pointed to the skel...

SHORT STORY The Widow's Cow. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 19 September 1902

[?] The Widow's Cow, There were pirate craft quartering the Caribbo&n Sea from the Island of Trinidad to Havana, and from Nassau to the Bay of Honduras.

Many a trader from the American coast fell into their hands, tn ha hurnpri or mink and the crew misused, and the dread of the black flig lay he»vy oa the sailor s mind. Of all the men who, trusting in luck, went from the port of Salem to the Florida Cape, Noah Hatching was perhaps the most notable. la his old batter-box of a brig, the Lucky Sally, he sailed out of Salem for the West Indies as calmly and serenely &b he started off for Sunday meeting when ashore. Oa one occasion he would have been captured by a rover but for tfce advent of a sudden squall; on another the Lucky Sally owed her escape to a fog and brought home three solid Bhot fired into her hull ; again a ' long, lew, rakish craft,' fly...

SORGHUM FOR FORAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 19 September 1902

SORGHUM FOB FOEAGE. Sorghum is one of the beet forage crops ;' tbe plants produce enormous crops on almost any average soil ; on rich alluvial land the sorghums yield more than maize as a fo/age crop. 'While this plant thrives comparatively well during periods of dry weather, it is corres pondingly b-tter when the weaiher conditions are more favorable. In selecting tho seed for forage pnrpooes in planting three things should be con sidered : a kind should be chosrn that produce^*he greatest amount' of foliage andthe?7 'stest stem ; also that variety containing .. ae greatest per centage of sugar matures early.

Like otherB in rural districts who hold that office, he had an abnormal' apprecia tion of the responsibility of the office, and never lost an opportunity to exercise his prerogative of demanding that the peace be preserved. One dav his ton and his man -rbr. tn fighting on a stretch of the farm near the boundary fence, and the Justice of the Peace rushed out and mounted the fence. Then, with head cocked high and the air of one who has but to command he shouted : ' In the name of the County of Devon demand the preservation of the peace !' JuBt then the fence gave way under his weight, and as he went down with 'the fence toppling over to the Devon side, he shouted to his son : 'Give it him hot, Jim; I'm out of my jurisdiction !'

Comparatively few people understand what took the Welsh Colony to Patagonia, though everybody Beema agreed that the best thing that could happen to them now is to transplant them to a British Colony. Mr. Chamberlain, it will be remembered, recently contributed £20 out of his private pocket towards the fund {or sending the unfortunate settlers to Canada, where the Canadian Government ha 1 given them a free grant cf tbirty-six square miles of territory. The history of the Welsh Colony iB as follows. Pilqkiu Fathers. It was in 1865 that a little Colony of Welshmen settled upon the no man's land of the Chubut Valley, at the north of Patagonia. Their enterprise was in a sense a semi, religious one. They were nearly all poor men, farmers, miners and quariymen — unfortunately for their in terest b they had not a lawyer among them — and for a few years after settling in Chubut they had a great difficulty in making £ living.
