SNAIL'S REAL PACE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914
SNAIL'S REAL PACE. "At a snail's pace" is a common expression, and usually signifies & very slow speed. But what do you suppose is the actual pace made by a snail in travelling? Wo can give it in accurate figures. One foot in four minutes, or ift the rate of one mile in sixteen days, if travelling continuously. These are the figures given by Geo. Zahnizer, a civil engineer, taken from actual observation. A short time since Mr. Zalinizer was waiting for a train at a country sta tion. He had nothing iu particular to do, and "killed a little time" by tim ing a snail which was creeping along the ground. That snail travelled just exactly one foot in four minutes. Mr. Zah nizer has figured out that it would re quire sixteen days for that snail to move a mile. Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne, report that prices have been ruling high. During the first week of this month they obtained up to 7%d. per pound for porkers (prime small), and for ...

RICE TO HATCH EGGS. A PECULIAR CHINESE SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914
RICE TO HATCH EGGS. A PECULIAR CHINESE SYSTEM. Chinese poultry farmers in the dis tricts near Amoy, have a singular sys tem of hatching hens' and ducks' eggs. Ity'is explained in an American consu lar report that the breeder roasts a quantity of unhusked rice and when it is lukewarm spreads a 3in. layer in a wooden tub, and places about 100 eggs thereon; another layer of rice is spread over the eggs. Each tub Ins six 'layers of rice and five layers of eggs; so that there are 500 eggs in each tub. The rice is heated once every 24 hours, the eggs being taken out at such times. When the eggs are put in the rice again the bottom layer is placed on the top. The chicks and ducklings are produced in from 20 to 30 days.

PROTEST BY THE VICAR. HATLESS BRIDESMAIDS. The Rev. II. N. Bales, Vicar o£ Wal them-cross (Fug.), lias entered a pro test against what lie describes as the growing custom of bridesmaids and other women in bridal parties attend ing the marriage service with uncov ered heads.

In future, the clergy of his parish will decline, to solemn ise marriages where the scriptural rule is not observed.
TRAVELLING BY AIRSHIP. "A LOVELY SENSATION." [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914
TRAVELLING BY AIRSHIP. "A LOVELY SENSATION." An Australian girl now on a visit to Germany sends an interesting let ter telling of the wonderful progress of aerial navigation: "I must tell you of my latest ad venture. My brother-in-law chartered the Zeppelin airship, "Victoria Lou ise," and invited fourteen of us for a three hours'.flight. So we all went to Hamburg and stayed the night there, and early next morning started off to the hall where this gigantic ma chine is stationed. We climbed into her by means of a ladder; then she was guided out of the hall by about a hundred soldiers, all tugging on to her to keep her from rising. When she was clear of the hail they let her go, and off we went at the rate of 80 miles per hour from Hamburg to Kiel, to see t)ie opening of the regatta. It was a lovely sensation, and an ideal way of travelling—no jolting or rat tling as in an express train, and not that constant sensation of speed and the after result of drumming in the ears as in a mot...
LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914
LADIES' LETTER. By "Irene," in Melbourne. A quaint but plaintive story comes from one o£ our suburbs. Two poor school-mistresses found their little shilling-a-week school was inadequate for bread and rent. They tried to sell a handsome mantle, relie of a moneyed past. The mother of a pu pil was induced to purchase. Sha named her own terms—time-payment one shilling per week. The sisters agreed. An extra shilling a wee!: was full of meaning to them. But suddenly the child of this mother stayed away. Days and weeks passed and she did not return. The mother continued payment until the debt was cleared off. Then the shilling -for tlio mantle ceased and the child re turned to school. The child did not lose much. And the poor little school-mistresses, who are not as good at arithmetic as at "accomplish ments," are still pondering over the profit and loss of their transaction. Said Captain Brownlow, H.A.N., speaking 011 Einpir.e Day: "I think girls should have compulsory training as well as...

POINTED REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914
POINTED REPLIES. It is very amusing sometimes to hear the ever-ready and witty replies made by some people to the .questions they are asked. It is said by some to be an "extra gift," for, no- matter where they are or liow quick the ques tion is given, they are able to give an answer or offer an excuse. The fol lowing are rather interesting:— "Is your client pleading insanity?" "I haven't decided," replied the law yer. "He wants to look the ground over and see which is the easiest to escape from—the prison or the asy lum." A clumsy carver once sent a goose into a lady's lap. His apology was ■better than his carving. "Ah, madam, how potent your charms are! They attract not only the living, but also t'.u dead." On an examination paper on "How we are Governed" was the question: "If the Prime Minister, the Chancel lor of the Exchequer, the Home Secre tary, and all the other members of the Cabinet should die, who would officiate?" A boy of twelve thought for a moment; then the happy inspi...

EGGS THAT CROAK. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914
EGGS THAT CROAK. That young unhatched crocodiles ut ter an audible croaking cry within the eggs in which they are laid is averred by "Knowledge," and it adds that the cry is so loud and distinct that it can be heard when the eggs are buried under one or two yards of sand. Dr. W. A. Lamborn tested the fact at Lagos, on the West African coast. He*lieard a croaking noise from be low a dry path, and, digging in the path to investigate the cause, he dis covered thirteen crocodile's eggs at a depth of about 18in. All the young crocodiles batched out within half an hour of being dug up. So far back as 1899 Dr. Voeltzkow noticed that unhatched Madagascar crocodiles uttered a cry from the egg at a depth of two yards, and that any shock, as of a heavy tread, near the egg caused the baby crocodiles to produce this sound "with the mouth closed, as we produce hiccup sounds." In this- way they inform the female crocodile when she visitB the nest that they want her aid, whereupon she scrapes the s...
