The Silver Fox. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 October 1914
The Silver Fox 1 The craze for the rare has had results, as was to lie expected. We all of us know how impossible it has been proved to get rid of the rabbits which, in an evil mo ment, were introduced into Aus tralia, while many of us have rea son. to be aware of the hopelessness of ever exterminating rats and mice. Such creatures not merely increase with amazing rapidity, but are sel dom in danger of suffering from lack of food, and that, too, of an easily, obtainable kind. So long as there is any vegetation at all rabbits will obtain their share of it and a chahge of diet does not trouble them in the least. Save that they restrict themselves to vegetables they are almost as fatally accom modating as to the sort of food they eat as rats and mice are. With none of the so-called " fur bearing" animals is existence so easy or increase rapid, and, as a result, all have in varying degrees suffered heavily at the hand of the trapper, or, perhaps, I should say from the demands of fashion...
Ivory Nut Buttons. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 October 1914
Ivory Nut Buttons. » About fifty years ago some > rub ber gatherers in the forests of Northern Ecuador reported a pecu liar species of palm, which they, found in great numbers, whose fruit j was a nut resembling in form and. colour a miniature head of" a.no-,| gro. These nuts they nicknamed | "negroes." Upon investigation >j (says "Commercial Intelligence") it I was found that'the kernels of . the nuts, when thoroughly dried, ' had^ the appearance and texture of de finite ivory.' Sample lots of.these nuts were shipped to '- Europe for experimental purposes, and it was! soon found that they furnished an | ideal material from which to manu- j facture buttons and other small or- 1 namental objects, for which the more expensive ivory had hitherto been used. The kernel of the "ne-. groes," once thoroughly dried," can be sawed, carved, arid turned on lathes into all sizes and shapes of buttons, and it readily absorbs dyes and takes on a high and per manent polish. The ivory nut is ....

COPYRIGHT. PRINCE OF ROGUES « - - - i A ROMANCE OF ENGLAND AND AUSTRALIA. j "By W. Murray Graydon, Author ot r»'The Heir of tbe Loudans," "Mat , thcw Quin," etc., etc. PART 11. Lance turned himself over on his back-, and for some minutes he lay there without stirring. He felt stun ned and dizzy. His nose was bleed ing, one eye was partly shut, and his body was racked with severe pains from head to foot, owing to the kicking he had received. But his mind was active, and as he reflected on his situation, he groaned with mental anguish. "Heaven help me !" he said to him self. "I may be kept a-prisoner for years, or, what is more likiely, these devils will do me to death by ill treatment or drive me really mad. There is no hope that my friends will learn what has become of me. Char teris has planned too well for that. He has a free hand now, and can do as he likes, unless Andrew Forwood is .able to chefckmate him. And my poor Violet ! What will she think what will become of her ?" The t...
The Apple and the Rose. BEAUTIFUL COUSINS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 October 1914
The Apple and the Rose. .BEAUTIFUL COUSINS. If the ripple which played so im portant a part in the episode of the Garden of Eden was anything like the apples which at the pre sent tima help to make life worth iivingrTfor such a large part of : htimanUy,'&lt; then must it be ad mitted, reluctantly perhaps, but f ositi ely, that the temptation was ajg.e.it one. Far he it, however, -fri.m one in this age of moral de velopment to countenance stealing apples. Strange as it tuny seem, claims Mr. Charles Burton in a ? recent paper, the apple belongs to the great rose family. By what acci dent of process it developed into a sturdy tree and came to rock its young in such a delightful cradle of lusciousness can only be imagined. It is thought to have been indigenous to northern Russia in - remote times, and its cultiva tion spread rapidly throughout the temperate zone. America is the great- apple-producing country to day, ? but it is not alone in the ,culti- ation of this popular frui...

Richmond Park [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 October 1914
Richmond Park The dry season is having an influence on the finances cf the Richmond Park Trust, the scarcity of grass causing a reduction in grazing fees, which * form the principal source of revenue. It is about time the members of the Trust took into, serious consider ation the-desirableness of utilising the river water. A small pumping plant could be erected and a large portion of the park thus irrigated so as to secure a plentiful supply of grass even in the warmest' weather. The cost would not be large, and would prove a repro ductive investment by reason of the increase in grazing fees The place would also present a greatly improved appearance during the dry season. All public parks and gardens should be irrigated as far possible, if for no other, reason than to conserve the Yan Yean supply at a time of the year when there is such a strain on,its re sources for domestic purposes.'

Women Councillors [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 17 October 1914
Women &lt;"'oimcillor3 Mr E. J Cotter, M.L. A. has made a name for himself in securing the right for women to Bit as municipal councillors When considering the Local Government Bill on Thurs day the Assembly agreed to Mr Cotter's amendment, the effect of which is to remove the embargo against women as councillors. Mr i Jotter made &lt;i vigorous speech in support of his proposal aud with im pressive force drove home the point that in the principal Act women were bracketed with criminals and lunatics as being ineligible for municipal office Was ever .a re form of such far reaching effect carried with so little fuss ? It is a pity that Parliamentary business generally is not transacted in this businesslike way.
