Famous Men Who Have Hungered. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

Famous Men No one need be ashamed of the fact that they may have been, at some time or other, hard up for a meal. Many celebrities have been situated in similar circumstances. For instance, there was the late Sir Harry Irving, the great genius of the stage. Few people know of the trials this eminent actor went through be fore he attained even a small modicum of success. He was actually starving on the streets at one time, without a penny to buy a bun. Then there was Oliver Goldsmith, the author of some of our greatest English classics. Once he lived in a garret, and was bothered by a shrew •ish landlady who demanded "rent down." Oliver Goldsmith had also numerous other debts, which surely ought to have turned him away from literature in disgust as a means of livelihood. But this Oliver Goldsmith would not allow them to do, and consequently he reaped his reward. And Zola—the affection of all people who combine culture with dash—poor Zola also had a bad time of it going through the li...

Modern Ink. HOW IT WAS FIRST MADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 9 April 1920

? HOW 31 WAS FIRST MADE. Dr. Heni'y Stephens, the father of modern ink, was a friend of the poet Keats. The two lived together in Bloomsbury just about a hundred years ago, and Stephens, who himself wrote good poetry, was often asked by Keats for his criticism. Henry Stephens was a good doctor long before he became a manufacturer of ink. He worked at his profession all through that dreadful cholera epi demic of 1832, and was the first man to discover the antiseptic value oi creosote. Some years later, when Stephens' ink was well on its way to prosperity. Dr. Stephens had a man working t'oi him whose son, a seaman, had gone to New Zealand in a sailing ship. Word came that cholera had broken out in the ship, but the sailor's father took the news very calmly. "Jack'll be all right," he said; "the doctor gave him a lot of that there tar-water afore he started." Months later Jack returned quite safely, and told how, while the pas sengers in the ship had died of the dreadful disease, he a...

Dog Sport in Northern England. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 May 1920

"What is a man without his dog?" This; North-country (England) . expres sion tells a story. \ c; In some parts of England—chiefly , mining,districts—men are -po keen on sports in which dogs are used that in dividuals ' would consider life without; a dog. hardly worth* living. ; A certain amount of time is spent' each day on grooming the animal; its meals aire carefully prepared by the housewife under explicit instructions from her spouse. In the man's leisure hours the little clog—usually a wjiippet—clad in its warm coat, attends him on his walks, i sitting at his feet at the street corner j as he chats with his friends and lays j wagers for racing matches on the com- j ing Saturday. The whippet is very like -a grey hound in miniature. Fully trained!, it carries nothing but hard muscle on its slender bones, and is the embodiment of beauty and strength combined. The miner has been harshly criti cised for the pains which he takes to get his dog into perfect condition. It has been said...

Monster Missiles from the Sky. GREAT METEORITES THAT STRIKE THE EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 May 1920

GREAT METEORITES THAT STRIKE THE EARTH. Meteorites frequently, though incor rectly, termed "fireballs," are rarely big enough to (lo any damage. In fact, they are usually entirely consumed in their passage through our atmosphere, and are visible to us mere ly as so-called "shooting stars." Occasionally, however, one of these stray visitors from outer space is suf ficiently large to- survive the terrific heat evolved by tts friction with. the upper air, and reaches us in the'form of a mass of incandescent metal. Of this kind, apparently, was the one which fell in Lake Michigan (Ame rica) the other day, shaking several towns and causing a flare that waa seen for fifty miles. - Judging by the description of it, this particular. meteorite must have been a- monster indeed, only surpassed by the one that fell in Arizona several years back) and which left a "crater" where it entered the earth that mea sured over half a mile in diameter, and which continued smoking for several weeks. In. 18...

Once a Cabin Boy. NOW A PEER. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 May 1920

NOW A PEER < Twenty years ago, Lord Glanely was .-earning 30s. a week as a clerk in a Cardiff (Wales) shipping office. To-day he is a multi-millionaire, and* one of the largest shipowners in the world. It would be a mistake «to attribute his success to. luck. • "There is a general impression," he once said, "that men who start from nothing and succeed in building iip great-wealth are the favourites of for tune. I ha"ve known many such men, and in almost every case the. founda tion of their riches was laid years ago, when nobody knew much about them arid cayed even less. What'they reap in kfter life is simply the reward of a lifetime of hard spadeworlt." i Lord Glanely owes little to luck, but a great deal to a tremendous capacity for hard work- and an iron will that brooks no obstacle. "Billy" Tatem, as he was known in his younger days, was the son of the owner of a small coastal cutter that plied between the Somerset coast and Cardiff Docks. His father realised that ther...

Agricultural and Pastoral Notes. FOR THE MAM ON THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 May 1920

FOR THE MAM ON THE LAND. The usual weekly circular, dated 1st inst., published by the N.S.W. De partment of Agriculture, and bearing the above as one of its headings, of ■\vhich we have received a copy, con tains the following articles among other matters: — LIVE STOCK. 'WARE ST. JOHN'S WORT. Stock Eating It Suffer Severely. An interesting account of experi ments in connection with the effects of St. John's Wort when fed to stock appears in the April "Agricultural Gazette." The investigations confirm the deductions arrived at in other countries that the plant contains a principle (most abundant in the flowers and flowering stems) which, when eaten, . becomes absorbed into the system and renders unpigmented or white skin peculiarly sensitive to sunlight, with the result that on ex posure to the sun such skin becomes sore and exceedingly irritated, and in jury is inflicted by the animal itself in the effort to relieve intolerable • itch ing.

BUD-WOOD FOR CITRUS TREES. Choose Productive Limbs as well as Trees. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 May 1920

I BUD-WOOD FOR CITRUS TREES. Choose Productive Limbs as well as Trees. ' In the propagation of citrus fruits, buds should be selected, not only from trees of known bearing proclivities, but even from , limbs whose bearing proclivities are known. S6 says the ,U.S. Department of Agriculture in connection .with its bud-selection work ,in California. According to its special ists the trees are , exceedingly common which in the main bear fruit of desir able, type, but have some--limbs on which fruit varying from the accepted standard is produced. Individual tree-performance records j of young trees which have been propa-! ' gated from older trees cOD.firm the pre vious conclusion that the characteris tics of ihe parent tree are propagated in the progeny with no important ex ception or variation. The progenies in experimental plantings are produc ing fruit comparable in every particu lar to that borne by the parent trees. If the parents were large yielders or had . other desirable charact...

In the monthly report, dated 22nd ult., issued by Messrs.

War Loan.—The two untaxable stocks, 4J per cent. 1925 and 1927, re main at about last month's rates, and must be considered cheap in view of the fact that they carry, four months' accrued interest that goes to the buyer; The 5 per cent. 1927, has im-. proved £1 to £95 2s 6d and 5 per cent. 1923 is about 10s higher at £95 10's.

1920 Dried Vine Fruit. PROGRESS TONNAGE. A Record Total, but not a Record "Per Acre." [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 May 1920

1920* Dried Vine Fruit. PROGRESS TONNAGE. / ' ' ' • ' A Record Total, but not a Record '(Per Acre." The Packing'Shed returns to Satur-. day, 17th. April, make it very evident that the previous best total ' (1916 year) for Mildura, Merbein and Curl waa is going to be exceeded.! . j In mi; the total of Currants, Sul i tanas and- Lexias l'or these districts I was 12,399 tons. This year, so far, the | fotals are:— 287G Currants 7G47 Sultanas 23S4 Lexias 12.907 And when Lexia deliveries are com pleted and Sultanas finalised, the total will not be far short of 13,500 tons— or as much as all the Sun-Raysed areas in 191!). Even these figures show a decline per acre of production as compared with 1916, for during that time the area "in bearing" has been consider ably increased. There is always "something" to hap pen to reduce the.crop that i« in pro spect. This year it was tire damage to the Currants, which affected the totals by nearly 1000 tons. # The year 191(5 was unique in that all thre...

Acquiring Wealth in Middle Age. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 May 1920

Acquiring Wealth in Middle; Hg®. "Too old at forty!" is an old slogan of the industrial world, although dur ing.the war its truth was strenuously disputed; a man is just as old as he feels, it was argued;- and in a national crisis no man has any right to feel old. Now that we are settling down once more to business affairs, this hoary old, half-truth is being revived; the forties, and onward, are meekly ac-. cepting it as an excuse for slacking. But is it an excuse? The answer is in the negative; at any-rate, "so" say the men who have "made good." , Recently, when the will of the late Dr. James Douglas was proved, it was found that he had accumulated a great fortune since Ms fortieth year. Up to that age he had done practically no thing; at forty he found himself with out prospects; he wias what is com monly known as "in the rut." Then he rooted himself up,-cast away the profession to which, he had been reared and educated, and started afresh. At the a^e of eighty-one he died a mult...

THE ORCHARD. THE PROFITABLE STRAWBERRY. Some of Its Prime Demands. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 10 May 1920

THE. OUCH Aft D. E PROFITABLE STRAWBERRY; Some of Its Prime Demands. The strawberry may be grown sue-' cessfully in any soil which will pror. (luce good crops of corn or potatoes. V To be most productive, however, the * soil must be well drained, deeply worked,. either by sub-soiling or *7 trenching, and well enriched with. ' manure. It is true (continues the Fruit Expert, in a pamphlet dealing with the cultivation of this succulent fruit) good crops may be obtained' ; without trenching, but not in such ex- *r cellence, profusion, or certainty in all ^ seasons. Taken as a whole, the very > best soil, and the one best adapted to ^ the largest number of varieties, is a V; deep sandy loam. Certainly a rich'^ clay loam, with a good under-draining,-^ will give as large a yield, bat the fruit, ^ will not ripen as--early as in the- sandyW^ loam. Avoid, if possible, a stiff, heavy -/.' clay. ' In respect to situation/ we cannot-?;, do better than-follow nature's teach- ^ ing, by choosing...
