SKATING RINK ON A . ' DREADNOUGHT. v. ? ' THE MEN CRAMPED. ? ???*? It is asserted that a roller skating rink has found a place on the new Dread ; nought Vanguard, which was commis sioned last month (says ' Lloyd's News') and which left Plymouth Sound on Tues day to test her gun sights before joining the Home Fleet. - ' Before leaving she was inspected in the » Round bv Admiral Sir Wilmot Fawkes, Naval Commander-in-Chief, who made a - tour of the ship. During the inspection the appearance of the decks was the sub-' ject of special admiration, they having been polished by a new electrical con ? trivance, which is a great improvement upon the old laborious system of holy b toning. It is stated that an unusually large area of the deck space has been reserved for the use of the officers, the men being confined to an extremely limited space, ?where in their leisure they are moonYem-* ently croweed. This is alleged to be causing discontent . among the ship's company, especially as the alle...
NEW ZEALAND. POWELKA'S TRIAL. SHOOTING OF SERGEANT McGUIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 1 June 1910
NEW ZEALAND. POWELKA'S TRiAL. ; SHOOTING OF SERGEANT mcguire: The trial has commenced at Palmerston of Joseph Powelka, wjio is charged with the. murder of Police-Sergeant McGuire on April 10. Powelka while awaiting trial on charges of burglary and arson had escaped from custody. He was believed to be in the grounds of a Palmerston resident named Hampton. On the night of April 10 McGuire led a party of police to the spot, and he and a man alle'ged to be Powelka grappled. The man had a revolver, shooting McGuire fatally. Detective Quar termain then fired twice. The evidence at the inquest was to the effect that the bullet which killed McGuire did not come from Quarter main's revolver. A feature of the opening day's nrnnfifirlino-s was thfi r.rriSRfnr amination of Detective ..Quarter main by . the defending counsel, who promises to produce a wit ness who will swear that- Quar t'ermain purchased ammunition on the morning following the tragedy. The point of this is that Quartermain's rev...
Compulsory Spraying. Some Unsuccessful Experiments. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 1 June 1910
Compulsory Spraying. Some Unsuccessful Ex periments. In an interview yesterday, Mr N. B. Barhett, Franklin, ques tioned the advisableness of (making spraying for the codlin moth compulsory, as proposed by certain members of the Huon Council. ' I have conducted several experiments,!' said Mr Barnett, and found the results were most unsatisfactory. I com plied strictly with the instruc tions given as to strength, using 51b. of arsenate to 100 of water, and in another- case 2}^lb. of arsenate to 50 of water, and in neither instance was the spray ing effective. I always sprayed three times, and there was no difference between the trees thus treated and those left unsprayed. I do' not wish it to be gathered from these remarks that I con sider spraying is useless.' On the contrary I am fully aware that in many cases very excellent results have been obtained. But it. cer tainly appears that these results can be relied upon everywhere. Whether it is due to varying con ditions, or some other...

FOOTBALL. Franklin Association. UNION V. UNITED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 1 June 1910
FOOTBALL. Franklin Association. UNION V. UNITED. The first round in the Franklin Association's premiership com petition was complete'd on Satur day by a match between Union and United. The. ground was in a very much better condition than many thought the heavy rain that fell during the week would have left it, while the weather also with which the fixture was favoured was for tunately an improvement upon what the prophets anticipated. Not without justification many were of the -belief that the day would turn out a wet ? one, but happily , nothing worse than a light . shower during the progress of the game was encountered.. Again the attendance was only moderate, though the fair sex was more strongly represented than at the two preceding matches. It seems regrettable that the public do not better patronise these fixtures, and so assist the associa tion in their commendable effort to build up the game of football in these parts. It is to be hoped it will not be necessary to again make...

When the body i^as recovered it was terribly muti lated. Sampson, who was well known as a tenor singer, was 32, single, and was'a nephew of Mr J. Sampson, manager, of the British mine.
Correspondence. LOCAL GEOGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 1 June 1910
Correspondence. LOCAL GEOGRAPHY, Sir,— In travelling through the IIijoi} district ? I have repeated] y asked the children the names of prominent hills, and invariably have received a hesitating, ''I don't know, sir.' This shows a lack of local lcnowledgo, for I am certain these same children could give 1110 the namos of numerous mountains in foreign lands, and yet they are ignorant of those around them. The educational authorities pro fess to impart a practical education and to encourage patriotism, but it seems to me their ideal is far from being attained. Why should not overy schoolroom be furnished with an onlarged map of the neighbourhood within a radius, say, of 20 miles, and the children instructed there upon? The thought sometimes occurs to me, Do the teachers themselves know much local geography ? If not, why not ? Yonrs, etc., GUMSUC1CER. May 38,
Fruit Export. Exploiting New Markets. REMARKS BY DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 1 June 1910
Fruit Export., Exploiting New Markets. REMARKS BY &IRECTOR OF EDUCATION. In an address to the members of the Upper Derwent Farm, Home, and Garden Society on Friday last, the Director of Agri culture (Mr Benson) further em phasised the urgent necessity for careful attention beiner devoted to the exploitation of new markets for ' Tasmanian fruit. He said it was a matter that he would give keen attention to, as, unless we got an -extension of our present markets and an improved method of distribution, the time would come when we should be faced with' rover-production. He did not. fear the possibility, because he believed new markets would be found, -and our methods of distribution improved. This year they had sent 550,000 cases of apples to the English market. Had any of them ever worked out how many apples per head that amounted to in 4Q,OOO,O0O people ? It camp to about one and, a nail each, and surely each English person could eat more than that in a year, . That showed, the...

RANDOM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 1 June 1910
RANDOM NOTES. BY SUNDOWNER. A friend of mine asked me the other day, if the Huon was a fresh water river below Franklin, and I was forced to con fess I did not know, but shortly after wards we met a lad approaching with dripping garments, and on asking him what had happened, he mumbled, ' Why I fell into the river! Mv friend at otirr popped the question, what sort of water was it? Why blooming wet, of course, can't you see ! replied tho boy, and aughed despite his drenching. Boys will be boys. N ext to the policemen in order of im portance comes the skipper of a Huon steamer. He is forced to be a man of many parts, and a floating encyclopedia, The other day an old lady travelling from Hobart by tho ' Excelsior ' was noticed to be staring at the captain in a strange manner, and at last she approached him and said rather differentially: 'Excuse me, Mr Captain, could you tell me where could I put my teeth in case I am sick ?' (N,B., ladies have no pockets now). 'Yes, madam, I can put t...
OUR HOBART LETTER. HOBART, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 1 June 1910
OUK, HOBART LETTER. (From Our Own Correspondent). Hobart, Tuesday, ' Fortunately, there are occasions when the monotonous cry of the pessimist as to Hobart's sluggishness, its obsoleteness, and its lack of enterprise are counter acted by expressions of opinion from the observant traveller showing how others see us. At the latter end of last year we had among us a large party, comprising tile leacung commercial men or cne em pire, who had come to Australia in con nection with the Congress of the Cham bers of Commerce of the British Empire. They were shown through Tasmania, and latest reports to hand disclose what they —or at least, some of them — are telling the British community, or the world, about us. The Bristol representatives have compiled a report upon the Congress, and in it they make very complimentary re ferences to this State. 'Hobart,' they write, 'isthe most beautiful city in Aus tralasia — in fact, in the world, and i.ts harbor one of the finest of any country. The ship...
