A VALUABLE FBUIT. Ripe, uncooked apples are among the most valuable of our fruits. It has been said that anyone who can ?md will eat two good-sized apples in the course of every twenty-four hours will neveT have gout, and if this de stroyer of comfort has already fasten ed its fangs in one's system, apples will banish even the most persist ed form of this legacy of luxurious living. Kaw apples are much to be preferred for health reasons to those that are cooked. As a next alterna tive, baked apples are commended Baked apple pudding is excellent and healthful. Baked sweet apples and cream are a dish fit for a king; sour apples are good, if not too acid. They sometimes sour the cream, in which case they may sometimes cause die tress, especially if eaten by delieale children. Bread and milk with sweet or mildly tart apples, cut in pieces like dice, are a popular supper dish iu many households. As a substitute for butter, apple sauee and marma lades of various sorts may be of great adva...

BELL-HINGING RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914

BELL-HINGING RECORD. A bell-ringing record which has stooil for 130 years was beaten the other day nt Asliton-under-Lyno Parish Church by n team of cam panologists under the conductorshlp of Mr. Samuel Wood. The Ashton ringers decided some time ngo' to attempt to beat tho treblo boh royal record on ten bells of 12,000 changes which was accomplished at ShorediUh in 1784. Jleginning their task at seven' o'clock in the morning' tho ringers succeeded in their feat, which they carried out in nine 'hours thirty-four minutes. Tho peal reached nearly 14,000 changes. The sagacity of a horse belonging to a Captain Watson, of Ardow, furnishes the ? "Scotsman " with a good story. The horse hud been graz ing in a field for some time, and had lost a shoo. Seemingly he felt tho loss of his usual metal support, and, managing to get out of tho field, he travelled a con siderable distanco to Dervaig, on tho north-west of Mull, The road ho took passes tho village smithy, and the blacksmith was astonis...

THE CRICKET-BAT'S TASK. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914

THE CRICKET-BAT'S TASK. Twelve months at least should be allowed for the "selisoning" of a high-grade crickct-bat-that is, from the time it is roughly shnped. In the final stage of its manufac ture the surface of the blade is subjected to great pressure by means of special machinery. Why is all this necessary ? Because a bat has to withstand tremen dous blows. An interesting experiment once car ried out at Woolwich Arsenal showed that C. T. 13. Turner, the great Australian bowler, could bowl a ball at the pace of eighty-one feet a second, and there have been plenty of bowlers faster than "The Demon/-' However, a tolerably simple ma thematical calculation shows that a cricket-ball travelling at .this rate and striking a stationary bat will exert a pressure equal to about 871b. at the point of impact. But, of course, a bat is not al ways stationary, and when it is swung against the ball, tho pres sure on the bat is enormously in creased. Here accurate calculations is dim cult, but it ...

OIL FOR LIFEBOATS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914

Oil. FOR LIFEBOATS. Ten lifeboat crews are experi menting with a small oil bag to ascertain tho effect upon rough, shallow water. The minutely perfo rated bag, containing a tin of1 thick oil-which is smashed by tho coxswain-and a wad of oakum, is towed from the vr&ather side of tho boat, and is designed to moderate breaking, following seas. These latter are alwaj'S a menaco to the safety of a lifeboat, and hitherto the view has been generally held that oil, although an effective agent in deep water, was of no avail against them. The quantity of oil varies from a gallon to half a gallon, according to tho size c* tho boat. Recently the device was tested at Worthing in exceedingly rough wea ther, and it has been reported to the National Lifeboat Institution, which issued the bags, i hat the tests are regarded as satisfactory.
