LAZINESS, A GERM. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

LAZINESS, A GERM. Doctors are interested 111 the report that an offer has been made by a Lon don specialist to treat William Lock ley, a healthy-looking young inan de-. scribed by the Willesden police inspec tor as "the laziest man he had ever met." The specialist has a theory that laziness is due to a germ. The germ theory of laziness was re ceived with some sceptism by one of the specialists in the research labora tories at a London hospital. There are certain diseases, notably sleeping sickness, it was stated, in which lazi ness or physical inertia is a prominent symptom. "I do not think that the scientific world will be prepared to accept any theory that laziness in gen eral is caused by any one special germ," said the doctor. "The 'disease' of laziness," the doc tor said, "is a widespread one, and the medical profession and employers of labor will await with eagerness any announcement of the discovery of its cause and cure."

OLD BOOTS ON YOUR WALLS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

OLD BOOTS ON YOUR WALLS. Probably, when you throw your old boots in the dustbin, or give them to a passing tramp, you believe their life is over. The tramp may wear them for a bit, or it is conceivable that part of the leather is used again for the manufacture of cheap slippers or boots. But that is as far as your imagination carries you. Don't be startled, however, if you are told that your old boots are now doing duty as wall-paper! Extraordinary as it may seem, it is nevertheless a fact that manufacturers of wall-paper buy up quantities of old boots. These are thoroughly cleaned from every scrap of dirt and then taken apart, all the nails and threads are removed, and the leather that is left is ground into a fine pulp. Those stamped leather wall papers which have attracted your fancy are only ordinary thick papers which have been covered over with a layer of leather pulp—old boots, in fact. Embossed leather paper is very fashionable for papering libraries and dining-rooms. The be...

TRANSPORT LIFE DRILL. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

TRANSPORT LIFE DRILL. Life drill is one of the most import ant things the Tommy on a transport has to learn. At any moment the ship might be attacked by hostile craft from air or sea, or fire might break out. In order to be ready for any such event the sol diers are constantly put through re hearsals of their life drill. Suddenly the bugler sounds an alarm. Every man rushes on-deck to a place which has been previously pointed out to him, to await orders. With lightning-like rapidity life-belts are hauled up from below and served out. By the time the colonel comes around to inspect the life-belt parade, everybody on the ship, with the excep tion of the invalids, is expected to be attired in a cork jacket. Even the patients in the sick bay display the belts, though they do not put them on. Before going to their allotted boats the men fall in as though on parade. An escort takes charge of the regi mental colors. The pioneers go to the magazine to remove the powder if necessary. Water-t...

Sports at Carngham. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

Tbe weather ou New Year's Day wa9 gloriously fine, and the.various forms of outdoor pleasure could not be otherwise than successful and enjoyable. The 51st annual demonstration in connection with the Carngham Widows' and Orphans Fund was no exception ; and those who made the outing a picnic must have got the maximum of enjoyment out of it, whilst the " sports " bad a varied and interesting programme of events to oc cupy their attention. The attendance was large, though no doubt it was affected by such counter attractions as the Bur rumbeet races, Golac regatta, etc. The proceeds will be divided equally between the Widows' and Orphans', Fund and ^Patriotic Fund, as was done last year. ^The sports were very capably carried out by Mr G. A. Cbeeseman (secretary) and an experienced staff of officials. Mr L. Stevenson, as usual, made an excellent judge, and the duties of starter devolved upon Or A. C. Roddis, who has acted in that capacity for the past 29 years. Mr W. Martin was clerk of ...

THE WASTE OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

THE WASTE OF WAR. A striking example of the fearful waste of war was given in an address at the recent annual meeting of the Federation of Arts in Washington by Mr. Charles R. Ashbee, an English architect and director of works. He said that just before the war he had worked out a plan by which a labor er's cottage could be designed and built for a thousand dollars—just the amount that it costs to fire a 16-inch gun. Now no cottages are built and millions of money are shot away on the battlefields. Mr. Ashbee's. work shops are all closed; three of his workers are at the Front, a fourth is drilling cavalry, another is learning to drop bombs from an aeroplane, and another, "the best enameller in Eng land," is making cartridges. Think of that! The best enameller in Eng land making cartridges. Surely some mrre useful war work might be found for him, and there must be thousands of skilled men, whose speciality is making munitions of war, now in the trenches. I hear also (says "Vulcan" in ...

GREAT THOUGHTS IN FEW WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

GREAT THOUGHTS IN FEW WORDS. Our duty must not be measured by what others did, but what we could do. We cannot do enough if we can do more.—Mr. Ellis Griffiths, M.P. We are now at this moment engag ed in weaving all over the world the "winding-sheet," as we trust, of the , most infamous conspiracy that has ever been known against the liberties of mankind.—Lord Rosebery. The determination of the French to have done with Prussia, to cut Prussia out of Europe like a cancer, is, among the spiritual forces of this war, only to be compared with the in tensely national religious sentiment of the Slav.—Hilaire Belloc. It would be cold weather for the neutrals if the Germans won. A Ger manic victory would be fatal to Den mark and Holland and extremely un pleasant for Roumania and Greece. For any small nation to throw in its lot with the Huns would be sheer suicide.—Robert Blatchford. . There, are brave and gloriously un selfish tears being shed just now, tears that strengthen rather 'than we...

Baker, has been awarded the King's Police Medal, for signal bravery in assisting a comrade, who afterwards succumbed, against ths drunken- attacks of ^ mob at Lovett, Tasmania, on Janu ary 8th, 1915.

AGRICULTURE. WHEAT BREEDING. Advantages. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

AGRICULTURE. WHEAT BREEDING. Advantages. By sowing uniformly high-yielding seed we get even germination; a uni form level crop, which ripens evenly, presenting no difficulties in harvest ing; the'^fertiliser and soil moisture are employed to the best advantage; diseases are reduced to a minimum, and the farmer, by practising selec tion, becomes more observant and keenly interested in his work, espe cially when he finds it brings him larger profits. Aims in Selection. These will differ in various: dis tricts, though productiveness is al ways the first consideration. Easi ness of ripening is of great, import ance in dry, warm districts, also where rust is prevalent, as in coastal regions. One cannot expect ?. plant to be very productive, and at the same time very early. The differen ces of local needs cause multiplica tion of varieties adapted to special conditions. Common-sens? should in dicate the bounds of seh'-cl-ion. A plant bearing large heads, ior in stance, will not produce, u...

COAL AT £56 A TON.. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

COAL AT £56 A TON.. In London a "bundle of firewood that cost a halfpenny before the war now costs three-farthings. In Przemysl last March, just before it fell, a similar amount of kindling wood was worth tenpence, and coal fetched £56 per ton. Bread was not procurable at any price. A fowl cost 24/-, a cow was sold for £40, and a dog for £2 10/-. Figures such as these help us to realise what we might suffer if our Fleet were beaten, our country in vaded, and one of our great cities ringed in by a hostile force. For the privations that befell Przemysl were not exceptional privations, in the cir cumstances. Towards the end of the siege of Paris by the Germans in 1870-71 the ordinary sewer rats retailed at from 2s. to 3s. each. What were known as "salted rats," however—that is to say, rats kept in captivity for three or four days after being caught, and fed meanwhile on slightly salted oat meal porridge in order to rid them of their musky flavor—fetched 10s. each. A full-grown cat, not...

Pocket Money for Women in Hobbies. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

One of the interesting features of January " Everylady's Journal " is the first of a series of articles showing Aus tralian housewives how they may make money from their hobbies. It is proposed to show readers how to grow herbs and flowers, keep pigeons and poultry, and so on, with profit as well as pleasure. For example, in this number readers are told how to grow flax and spin thread. Minute details of cultivation, prepara tion, and manipulation are given ; and any sensible girl could encompass the whole business. Side by side with this is an article on Toy Making, which is a pleasant and profitable hobby if conducted aright. Diagrams and suggestions cover the making at home of toy-dogs, toy-kan garoos—in fact, a regular toy Zoo. There is no reason why Australia should not be independent to the German-made toy. Somewhat akin to these is M iss Card's Crochet-work department, in which that expert fancy-worker gives a number of new designs. There are one or two special New Year artic...
