A Yellow Peril. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
A Yellow Peril. One of Chicago's old-time stock yards magnates, who was a phil anthropist as well as a pork packer had an intense dislike to cigarettes, and would not allow any body to smoke 'them in his oflice. One day, many years ago, a half-grown youth found him alone at his desk, and asked for a job as office boy. The packer looked him over kindly enough, but, shook his. head. "I'm afraid you won't do, my son," he said. The lad, who was rather effemi nate . in appearance,., had, received several similar answers during the day, and was somewhat discour aged. So now he said, with some bitterness : "It's my yellow hair, I suppose?" "What is your name, my boy ?" "John Harris." "Well, Johnny," said the mil lionaire packer, "it isn't your yel low hair. It's your yellow ilngors." The average age of frozen meat sold in London is two or three months, and the oldest frozen meat hitherto known to the trade is said to be two years.

CHINA'S NATIONAL GAME. This is what he has to say on the subject of sport in tho East : "When wo are tired of work wo like to do our own playing.

^;SlDERS OF THE VELDT. ' './' ' ACROSS. AFRICAN DISSERTS V WITH A TRANSPORT WAOGON. . (By A. LOTON HIDGEU, F.U.O.S.) | - Though South Africa is steadily becoming covered with a network of ..railways, there are still great stretches of country that are not yot linked up. In these parts the ; N ox-waggon is the only means .of transport. West' of Mafeking, right to the . seaboard, there is one unbroken - stretch of veldt; and to reach the Atlantic coast there is only one way to travel, namely, trek it by ox-waggon. Fate once sont me on a trading - trek up to Lake Ngaitii. Well, Lake Ngami is about a thousand miles from nowhere. To be a little more accurate, however, j the lake -lies in the north-western part of the Bechunaland Protec torate, and to reach the little trad ing centro up there, one has to cross the northern part of the dreaded Kalahari-a waterless -de sert.

Let the Sun Supply Hot Water. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
Let the Sun Supply Hot Water. The sun will keep your hot water boiler full, with the aid of on inexpensive device, a solar heater on the rooX, that not only supplies water at a high temperature on warm days, but also by' means of a clevcrly devised tank, will conserve the herit over' ' a c'o\ii)le of dark days. This is made possible by ? a packing around the tunic similar to that in a Tireless cooker. Not only hundreds of homes in the West are thus equipped, but a number of public buildings, notably play ground and school buildings, in California make use of this system to supply hot water for shower baths without cost. After the plant is paid for;*-there1 are no further char ges. . The photo graph shows one of the largest of these public installations, a 500-galIon tank heated by three night-and-day so I lar heaters on the roof of the playground building in Exposition Park, i Los Angeles, The "chimney" on the structure is in reality R screen J for the tank, which is set upright in ...

A sextant for measuring the latitude of any place can, it has been found by Mr. Cnrlos Harrison, can be easily constructed as follows : While a hoard, lin. thick, 6in wide, and 12irt. long, is about right for the instrument, any dimensions can be used, providing the line AB is at perfect right angles to the lovel THE TWO STARS AT THE END OF THE GREAT T/IPt'EK ARE POINTERS TO THE N 0 11 T II STAR. of the sights | C and D.

THE FARM. SPRAY FOR POTATOES. LIME-SULPHUR V. BORDEAUX MIXTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
THE FARM. SPRAY FOR POTATOES. LIME-SULPHUR V. BORDEAUX MIXTURE. The New York Agricultural Experi- . ment Station has recently conducted some important experiments with re gard to a spray for potatoes, and have arrived at the following con clusions The "Information at hand is quite sufficient as a basis for some final conclusions.. It seems evident . that lime-sulphur is not dest'ned to takp the place of bordeaux mixture as a. spray .for potatoes, in spite of the fact that it is cheaprr and no doubt very ' convenient to use. ' tJirt^r more favourable conditions, in which late blight occurred earlier in tin season and to a greater extent, the treat ment with lime-sulphur might have produced different results, but at pre sent it is not promising. However, the experiments have not bren car ried far-enough to determlno wh^t may be expected under favourable conditions. Tho lime-sulphur proved ha-mless to the potato foliage as far ns hunt ing is concerncd, but it proved to have a distinct ...
CHAPTER XXIV. THE MAN WHO WROTE ON THE WALL. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
CHAPTER XXIV. THE MAN WHO WROTE ON THE! WALL. I Owen was deeply disappointed In the major. He had expected better things from warm Celtic blood. But | perhaps so many years had passed since this man had trod his native heatb that he had become thorough ly Russianised. ' \ He was tempted to say what he felt, but discretion proved the bettor part of valour. | Besides, although the skinny major looked BO stem and arbitrary, Dug- j dale fancied he saw a gleam of hu-j mour dallying in the corner of his eye, as though, under this military j demeanour, there might lurk- a sense, of humour, and a friendly feeling for the fellow-countryman who had dared mock General Gratscheff, defy a Royal dignitary., and run off with the protege and ward of the Czar him self. Accordingly, Dugdale, with an airy grace, kissed his finger-tips to the head gaoler, and laughingly sent over his shoulder : "Ta-ta, major. Come and see me when I get settled. I'll be glad to give you a dinner and a good bottlo of som...
Iodine for Wounds. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
Iodine for Wounds. Dr. Edward S« Calthorp, Who served as medical officer of the fourth division of the Bulgarian army throughout the war in the Halkans, has made an enthusiastic endorsement of the efficacy of» io dine as an antiseptic dressing for wounds. Ho insists, however, that tho u'ound must never bo swabbed or washed with water . before apply ing . tho iodine. After what he calls "a really huge trial," Dr. Cal throp recoinmonds that the skin around a wound, and oven the' wound itself, be cleaned with a 1 per cent, solution of iodine in ben zine. "This," he says, "is far and away the finest cleansing method I have seen usod or have used my self, and I think "it was an im portant factor in tho fighting in tho Balkan States." To. seo and to dare-these are tho two essentials, in men who aspire to rule. Without thom the highest gifts count for little.

£20 Recovered by Wireless. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
£20 Recovered by Wireless. About 8 o'clock on a recent Saturday night a customer called at the Londonderry Post Office and asked for gold for four £5 Dank of Ireland notes. He was just leav ing for Canada, being timed to start at eight for the liner, lying at the mouth of I*ough Foyle. The post-office clerk took the notes, and handed in exchange four little piles of gold. Without counting the money (says the "Londonderry News") the customer emptied it in to the pocket of his belt, and de parted. The post-oflice clerk, when he bal anced up for the night, discovered his cash to In £20 short. No amount of chocking made any! dif ference ; the figures would not come right. Later, he sought the help of a senior official. Together they worked at the pnoblcm until throe on Sunday morning, when it be came clear that the emigrant had received £10 instead of £'20. What was to be done ? They did not know the name of the customer, or eVon of the ship, which was pro bably a hundred miles away by ...
THE KIMBERLEY MUD FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
THE KIMEERLEY MUD FIGHT. No greater duel with death, or more striking example of heroism, will ever be recorded than that in connection with the fight with mud in the Kim berley mines on July 12, W07, as a result of which six EnirlWh -"iners were awarded the Edward medal, The raud rush, which means ccrta'n death to all in its track, came with out warning. The natives, working In a Hind of hollow, were made prison ers at once, the exit door being com pletely blocked. They cried wildly for help, and the Englishmen commanded them to climb a wall oat of reach of tho mud until they thought out a means of reBcue. , There was only, one way, and that was through a tunnel, which tms , al ready half-Dllcd with the rising mud. To go through the mud to the rescue of the natives was out of the ques tion ; they .would have to pass over it. One brave Englishman placed n. plank upon the face of :tho mud, nnd: stretched himself upon it. Fortunate ly, it did not .sink, and gradually he canoed himself...

NAVAL GUNNERY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 December 1914
NAVAL GUNNERY. ^ One is^ likely to find moro BUT prises in the history of naval ar chitecture and gunnery, saya " The Engineer," than in most other bran ches of science. Battleships of tho preeent day, for example, cost bo tween two and a }tnIf and three million pounds apiece, and it is quite conceivable that wo nitty be driven to accept, /or common-sense reasons of finance, a policy in bat tleship construction which is less costly. This must not he regarded as any plea- lor limitation* °* naval strength relative to that of other countries, nor as a desire to ro 1 strict technical progress ; hut we cannot close our eyes to the enor mous improvement in naval gun nery during the last decade, and we are prompted to ask, is not gun nery already so far ahead of the capability to resist it of almost any ship reasonably devisable as to suggest gravo doubts as to the value received for the money spent on existing designs ? This relative state of affairs between cost of ship and power of opp...
The Handiest Vessels the World. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
The Handiest Vessels the World: It , is well-known that onco any thing has become labelled an ridi culous, it is no easy tusk to regain for it a serious consideration and to restore it to its proper * place. Tho CJiineso Junk has for years been regarded as a huge joke, and held up as a good oxamplo of a nautical "ought to bo." How this originated is perhaps not difficult to * conclude, as tho early voyagers to tho Celestial land were so im pressed by tho absurdity of many of the Chinese products, which, to gether with tho peculiar appearance of the Junk itself, caused it to be classed in the same category. And to-day this undeserved reputa tion is accepted without question. In *a niueh-ndvertiscd encyclopaedia recently published tho Junk is curtly dismissed with "This is a clumsy craft, and is slow and awk ward- to handle," and this verdict about sums up tho general opinion. Yet one .of-the greatest naval autho rity's on sailing, Captain Kit/. Gcrald, 11.N., most emphaticlly states ...
Labour Disputes with Curious Causes. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 December 1914
Labour Disputes with Curious Causes. "We wont soap and water, and we won t work till wo get them 1" Such, in effect, wero tho senti ments of tho f/ty London sewer men, who recently ''came out.'.' They wanted other things as «&lt;ell : a messroom, fuel for firo, bettor boots and dry stockings. But thoir most fervent desire was for tho at tribute that rallies next to godli ness. Kvcr since strikes wero conceived -and who can say How long ago . that was 7-tho world has boon amused by the queer causes of somo of them. A lien, for instance, quite recently caused a short-livoil rail way strike at tho North-Eastern Railway joint station at Leeds. The fowl in question laid an egg while lying in a crato at the station." A porter noticed the egg, and new laid eggs aro usually fragile, re moved it to his barrow for safety. He was nrrested, and, on learning the circumstances, the entire staff of tho station struck work. It J was only when tho district superin J tehdent had ordered the p...
