DYING IN THE SHELL. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

DYING IN THE SHELL. "What a large number of chickens die in their shells every hatching sea son," says a writer in an exchange. "They die in all stages of incubation, whether the eggs are set In the incu bator or under the lien. If all the trouble were due to one cause, it would easily be remedied, but it is, alas! often due to several causes. First we should look at the condition of the stock birds which produce the eggs, some of which are in poor con dition or in many cases are over-fat. These will seldom yield eggs which strongly fertilised and vigorous chickens. We hear little about chic kens dying in their shells when the eggs are set under hens, for the loss is very small in these cases, but we put tho trouble down to shells too soft, bad setters, etc. The egg is the starting point of the chicken, there fore it must be fertilised and contain all the elements necessary to produce a chicken. Overheating at tlie com mencement is often a cause of weakly chickens, which seldom brea...

CHAPTER XII. Revelation. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

CHAPTER XII. Revelation. The summer was reaching its hcight and full plenitude, and with the ' middle of July the season was drawing to a close. The weather vas hot and sultry, and even early in the morning the air Celt used up and tired. "Should you mind very much if we were to go to Wissenden before very long?" said Lady Owen to Sydney one morning, as the latter entered the breakfast-room after the early ride she seldom missed. For a second a blank feeling took possession of Sydney. Wissenden! That meant leaving London, and the park, and—and many tilings. "If you wish it, of course not," she answered. Lady. Owen looked at "her child" without turning her head. She had caught the dull tone, and her heart ached. She knew nothiug. Some .how lately Sydney did not seem to have very much to talk to her about; there were long silences when they were together which never used to be. But she could read without let terpress. and she had. been reading fairly clearly for some time, though she ...

MASTER OF ALL BY ALMAZ 8T0UT Author of "Copper Under the Gold," etc., etc. Published by Arrangement with . Cassell's Colonial Press, Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XI. Drifting. Sydney went home with her thoughts in a whirl. One moment she could have laughed aloud In a sort of joyous intoxication, the next she felt weighed down with a vague and inexplicable depression. But she would not face herself. She felt dim ly she would not like what she saw. She was afraid her own moral sense would have something to say that she would not want to hear, and so she would not look. When she reached home she let herself in with her latchkey and ran quickly up to the drawing-room. As she opened the door she heard voices. She did not feel in the mood to talk j to strangers, and would have retreat , ed, but it -was too late. "Is that you, Sydney?" called out Lady Owen. "You will never guess who ds here." "Oh, I am so glad!" said Sydney, as Robert Enderby came forward and took her hand, and ...

THE SHADE OF BISMARCK [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

THE SHADE OF BISMARCK The second report of the Belgian Commission of Inquiry into the re ports of German atrocities in Belgium has been issued. It is a collection of appalling facts, which, taken with the first reports, makes a terrible indict ment against the German Army. Hor rors that can hardly be written down, horrors for which we should put even a nominally savage race outside the pale of humanity, have been found along the whole track of that army in Belgium. We do not even have to de pend on the Belgian official report alone. Nurses and hospital workers of our own have seen those things with their own eyes. Women brutally maltreated, children mutilated, civili ans bayoneted, and then burned be fore they were dead, even wounded soldiers flung Into the flames of burn ing houses—these are the results, not of sudden violence or passion, but of disgraceful principles of war deliber ately inculcated by German military authorities. "You must inflict on the inhabitants of towns the m...

THE HUMAN VOICE THE WORLD OVER. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

THE HUMAN VOICE THE WORLD OVER. I The voices of the people of Eng i land vary much in different sections, i There are three prominent types of i voice among cultivated people. The I exceedingly courteous, but cold, quiet I one; the kindly but egotistical voice, usually found among the better class i of merchants and business men; and i thy cold, affected, self-assertivo tone. I There are national as well as sec j tional voice characteristics. The Scottish voice is whining, sad, and at the same time, stern. The predo minating qualities in ihe Irish tones are warmth, great emotional inten sity, and great strength of purpose, coupled with a warm kindliness, and a musical tone of refinement not to bo observed in any other national ity. The voices of the French people im press one first with their strength and loudness. This is particularly | true of the women, whose toaes seem to lack in softness, beauty, and wo manly tenderness more than any of the nations around them. The voice of a c...

HORNS AND CLAWS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

HORNS AND CLAWS. I Nature has made the tiger unequal led in the combination ot speed, I strength, cunning, daring and physi cal beauty. A tiger's first bounds are so rapid as to bring it alongside an antelope, and a blow of its paw will stun a charging bull. It has been known to spring over a wall five feet high into a cattle-pun and to jump back with a full-grown animal In Its ■ Jaws. Sportsmen say they have known I it to carsy away the bait whilo they were putting up the shelters from which to shoot it. it is a fact, however, that the tiger makes no pretence to invincible cour age, as may be seen in the instance or one kept in the Calcutta Zoological Gardens, which was butted to death by a ram, A soldier owned a fighting ' ram, which became so troublesome it ' had to be sent to the zoo. Thero It | caused so much annoyance it was de cided to give it to the great tiger. I The tiger was so ferocious its food | .was lot down through a sliding grating I in the roof of its cage.

LATEST: STEEL BALLOONS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

LATEST: STEEL BALLOONS. One of the drawbacks, If not the chief drawback to the average bal loon or dirigible has been the fact that, however well-made, the gas bags leak. Mr. Melvin Vaniman, who was connected with an attempt to cross the Atlantic in an airship some timo ago, has Invented a cloth which lie claims to be fifty times stronger than any now in use. It is made of steel wire drawn "as fine as linen thread, and woven so closely as to be able to hold hydro gen. The new cloth Is coated on the inside with a mixture of gum which never dries, something like that used In the inside of motor tyres to keep them from leaking when punctured. Thorough tests have been made and It has been found that there is ab solutely no leakage. This new cloth will be an inestim able boon to those who fancy the dirigible balloon. A balloon made of this fabric can stay In the clouds for a year, if necessary. No wind that ever blew can destroy the steel cloth, according to .Mr. Vaniman. It Is pos sible...
