A PRETTY DRESSING JACKET. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902

A PRETTY DRESSING JACKET. 9 Accordion-pleating is very much used this season, and is introduced into the daintiest of tea-gowns and dressing- ' jackets. An example of a pretty little dressing jicket, composed of aocordion- i|9 pleated pale-blae nun's veiling, is . 'sketched in this column. It is trilled ijH down the fronts and all round with woollen torchon lace, repeated on the yfl collar and sleeveB, the lace frills being in jS each case headed by a flat band of lase M insertion, The collar- is faced with white washing silk, which would need to be re- ' ;|9 moved, however, when the dressing jacket f i is washed, and the fronts are united by y pale-blue ribbons. An evening skirt that . 'S has seen its best days coold possibly |-e ,;'j utilised as a petticoat after the style of the model sketched, which is trimmed with frills of' cheap lace at the foot and bands of insertion above.

MICROBES HELP MAKE CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902

MICROBES HELP MAKE CHEESE. Perhaps there is no better illustration of the utilization of bacteria that is to be found in advanced methods of treating common dairy products. Ten years ago if a dairyman had confessed that he actually employed micro-organiems to aid him in miking butter and cheese he would have been boycotted and forced out of business. But to-day it is dffarent, for dairy methods have baen a'. moft revolutionised by the discoveries of modern bacterio logists. In the first place it has been conclus ively shown t.;at the souring of milk is always prodi-jed by bacteria and that the popular belief that thunderstorms will perform the same function is erroneous. It also has been proved that bacteria pro duce Siimy milk, bitt'r milk, blue milk, yellow milk, green milk, orange coloured miik, amber coloured milk, chocolate milk and even black milk.

THE LUNG-FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902

THE LUNG-FISH. Curiously enough, the lung-fish of ' Queensland and its two allies have their swim-bladders also modified into lungs, so that they ean breathe by their gills, just as an ordinary fish does, but at the same time if there be any need they can sub stitute a lung for a gill. Under the circumstances this is a great advantage to them. The African mudfish, as it is there called, lives in rivers which are frequently dried np. When this takes | place, it simply coils itself up inside a cocoon made of mud, breathes air by its luny, and quietly waits till the returning rains fill the river, and at the same time soften the - hard walla of its mud house and enable it to £pni out and breathe once more by gills. J*I.'he Queensland lung fisb never makes a mud cocoon, but uses its lungs aB well as its gills aU the year round, finding Jfae lung specially useful, doubtless, when the water is more turbid with sand particles brought down by the floods or foul with decaying vegetable matte...

HOW TOADS FEED. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902

HOW TOADS FEED. Few persons, Mr. Charlos P. Jenkinson writes, are aware what an interesting pet the common toad makes. The manner in which it feelB is particularly entertaining. Insects, etc, are greedily devoured: it will Bot, however, eat anything which does not move. When any insect iB in troduced into the cage the toad fixing its gaze upon it, cautiously approaches, sud denly a slimy tongue flashes out, and with a curious click the insect ia trans ferred to (he captor's capacious mouth. If a large worm iB substituted, the toad approaches and seizes it in its mouth, proceeding by a set of prodigious gu'pa to swallow it, its eyeB almost disappear ing in the effort, using its-front paws to scrape off any particles of dirt adhering it slowly accomplishes the task until the eyes resume their position and the worm vanishes. A toad I had on one occasion swallowed a large worm, until three quarters of an inch alone remained ; it ' then appeared unable to proceed, and . stopped as if to ...

Personalities. ROMANCE OF SURNAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902

Personalities. ROMANCE OF SURNAMES. I MKHERE are probably many people JjWfa who speculate about their ances tjg^s tors and the origin of their family who are unaware that an interest ing and very valuable clue is supp'ied by the very 'same they bear; and yet it is a fact that there is scarcely a single sur name which is not in a way an index to family history. It is instructive, for mBtance, to know that the original bearer of the name of Jennings was in all probability a joiner j the first ThwayteB, a woodfeller; and t.',e primeval Leech a surgeon. The Marshals of to-day were originally smiths ; the Websters are descended in the paternal line from a weaver; the Fullers and Walkers from a clothfuller; and the Barkers from a tanner. In days when surnames were unknown, and Christian names no longer served to distinguish one John or William from several others in the same town or village who bore the same name, nothing could be more natural than to label them with their, different trad...

Naturalist. HOW A WATER RAT SWIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902

Naturalist. HOW A WATER RAT SWIMS. KN Germany a close study is being dls made of the manner in which various ZK iLimala swim, and pictures have beuu made to s^ow how the water rat swims, both when he is at bis ease and whi n an enemy is pursuing him. While he is looking for prey and scenta no dagger, this wily little animal goeB through tbe water leisurely, but the moment he sees or hears an enemy he changes his attitude and darts away, breasting the water at a great rate. Moreover, it is a singular fact that not only water rats, but all other rats and mice wbich live near the water, are splendid Bwimmers and, thanks to their skill, are frequently enabled to escape from their enemies.

PORT SAID. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902

PORT SAID. There may be viler towns than Port Said. We have never seen t' em. Lead ville, in its moBt flourishing and fiercest days, could not equal thin city at the mouth of the Suez canal, Bays a cor respondent of the ' Kansas City Journal.' If ten righteouB men were needid to Bave this to-rn of 85.000 people it would go unsaved. The inquiry, ' Do you want anything P' which, in Egypt, covers a multitude of sins, iB met with from small boys upon the main streets. Vice which in American cities, hides itself in the back alleys here flaunts itself in gay gauze garb and brazen face upon tHe boulevardB. It is a made town, on made earth and its manufacture is not morally a success. Tne few decent people con demned by business necessity to dwell in Port Said console themselves by the assertion that all new towns go through this period of vicuusaess— and Port Said is not a quarter of a ctmtury old. Atter seeing Port Said, we do not wonder that Moses fled into the wilderness.

GENEROSITY AND PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902

GENEROSITY AND PROFIT. I In a community of animals the fox once set himself np as a dootor. Propos ing to his customers to be perfectly fair, he said he would take no pay except where there was a cure. He prescribed in all cases of sickneiB, and took a fee from all that got well This seemed fair enough to the animals, and even generouB. But the I ox soon became rich, since a patient that got sick might recover many times, while he could only die once ; so that each animal contributed often to the fox and only once got his services for nothing.

APES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902

APES. Several of the higher apee share with a man the involuntary habit of blushing The blUBh of an ape extends over a larger portion of tbe body than that of a human being. . Any sudden shock, or pleasure, or surprise,, or a fit of anger, will bring out- a vivid bluth on the face of an sps. It may be said that all ani mals which perspire through the skin are more or less capable of blushing, for a flush on the ekin is simply the result of a rush of blood, due to relaxation of the musclc-e controlling the vessels under lying the ekin.

SOME SWIFT FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 26 September 1902

SOME SWIFT FISH. Recent experiments show that the dolphin, when pursued, can go through the water at the rate of about thirty-two miles an hour. ThiB is good speed, but for a short distance the salmon can do better, since it has frequently been know to swim at the rate of forty miles an hour. Among the smaller fish it is doubtful if there is one which is more swift than the Spanish mackerel. As a rule, how ever, all those fish which prey on others are remar£ably swift, which is only natural, as, if they laoked speed tbey would be unable to hunt successfully for prey and would often be obliged to go hungry.
