SAVERNAKE. DEATH OF MR. JOSEPH BAKER. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 28 February 1906

SAVERNAKE. Death of Mr. Joseph Baker. General regret has expressed here on Thursday last, when news came to hand that Mr. Joseph Baker, of Bull Plain had breathed his last that morning at Mr. G. H. Laymond's private residence in Yarrawonga, at the early age of 46 years. Dr. Denis. of Yarrawonga, was called in on the Thursday week at Mr. Baker's residence at Bull Plain, and on the following Sunday, as Mr. Baker was not improving, his friends removed him to Yarrawonga to be near the doctor, but without avail. Deceased was only ill about 10 days. Pneu- monia, I helieve, following other complaints was the cause of death. Mr. Baker was the second eldest son of Mr. John Thomas Baker, of Gung Gung, in the Wimmera district (Vic- toria). Born in the Mount Gambier district, South Australia, both the late Mr. Baker's parents, although close on 80 years of age, are still alive and living at Gung Gung. Mr. Baker lived close on 30 years in the Wimmera district, and then migrated to this colony, w...

Wireless Control of Vessels. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906

Wireless Control of Vessels. An interesting application of the principles of wireless telegraphy has recently been made in Spain, where an engineer by the name of Don Bernardo Torres Quevedo has de vised apparatus by whicli lie is able to control distant electrical power through the agency of Hertz waves. In some recent experiments with a small vessel he has been so success* ful that bo has Tcceivod a grant of about £8,000 from the Spanish Government to carry on further investigations. A fevr weeks ago the invention, which has been named the ' Telekino ' by Seuor Tones Quevedo, was installed on an electric launch, and a trial was made in the harbor of Bilbao. Tlio launch had au ordinary equipment ot accumu lators for operating the motors of the propellers, and, besides, a motor for working the rudder and two ' servo-motors' for the control mechanism. The 'Telekiuo,' of course, receives the Hertz waves and transmits the signals to the '' servo-motors,' by which the sup ply aud direct...

The School of Arts. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906

The School of Arts. ? ? * ? The School of Arts building was started and finished about the same time as the Public School, although the committee had to really do the finishing themselves, owing to the contractors Having uecome insolvent. This placed a good deal of responsi bility on their shoulders, but it was shown by a meeting held Ia6t Satur day night that they have just about freed themselves of any further lia bility as fat' as the contractors are concerned. Practically the building is now in their own hands, and pro bably the committee will arrange for an official opening at an early date, when it is proposed to invite ill*. Ball, M.P. (our member) to secure the attendance of the Minister of Education, the Minister for Lands, and any others Mr. Ball may think desirable, to perform the double event of opening the Public School and the School of Arts.

No Room. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906

No Room. ^Recently we drew attention to the urgeut necessity foe a proper Court house and offices at Henty. The prevailing conditions on the occasion of the Police Magistrate's last visit were disgraceful and require im mediate alteration. A long list of cases were down for hearing and naturally there was considerable public interest and attendance. Heed less to say the accommodation was wholly inadequate, and a large num ber of people were unable to obtain admittance to the room. They im mediately made for the two small windows of the room with a conse quent blockage of any fresh air, and the court officials had to shift them away. Those inside the court-room had to transact their business under the most uncomfortable and irksome conditions. It is to be hoped some combined action will bo taken by those interested to bring about an alteration.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906

FROM VAftltfVS: SOURCES. -It has been remarked by the ancients that a bull in a china shop is liable to do mischief, hut it is easier got at than a couple of animals which got loose in a suburban crockery store the other day. A well-dressed and aristocratic* damsel was walking down the street' accompanied by a couple of canine peus. jusi as uiey arnvea wiwout we china shop they spied a stray pussy, and made a dash at her, barking the 'while. Tab retired into the shop for shelter, Carlo and Spot followed close at her heels, and kept at her, over cups, saucers and sundries, up and down the shop, which soon resembled a kitchen when the old man has land ed home late, and the wife of his bosom has heaved the furniture at him. Assistants and manager were soon in full hse and cry, while outside past that shop walked an unruffled demoiselle, who, of course, knew not the dogs — never remembered seeing them before, In fact! In a time of danger personal ap pearance is forgotten, and only with ...

VERY CONSIDERATE [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906

VERY CONSIDERATE. Harry and Charlie, aged five and three respectively, were seated at the nursery table for dinner. Harry sees there is but one orange on the table, and immediately sets up a wail that brings his mother to the scene. 'Why, Harry, what arc you crying {or!' she aeksd. ' Because there isn't any orange for Charlie.' A Chicago paper, having been asked by a subscriber whether it is consider ed proper for an engaged young wo mau lo dance with gentlemen at enter tainments which her affianced does not attend, says:' It. depends on where you live. In Boston or New York it might do; but in Carson City or Lead ville (where girls are scarce) an enp»-?- ed girl never, dances with anv gentle man except her affianced. Very few men nre willing to die for tbe sake of » \\tVb enjoyment.' Mamma: Now, look here, Tommy, didn't I give you a penny yesterday to be good?

How They Obtained a Good View. . At a football match played recently it began to rain heavily, and a full blown masher, who was seated in the grand-stand, wishing to protect him self from the rain, put up his umbrella. The umbrella was evidently the worse for wear, from the number of holes in il It had not been up long, however, when some people at the back began lo complain about not being able to sec the game. The masher, on over hearing their talk, turned round, and, looking through his eyeglass, exclaim ed: 'I — I beg your pardon, but can't you see over my umbrella?' The complalners made no reply, whereupon a wag shouted from the back seal: '1 say, Charlie, we can't see over it, but we can see' through it,' The umbrella went down amid roars ot laughter. A few minutes' rest lying down In a darkened room with closed eyes and thinking of nothing will brighten up a woman who has been hard at it dur ing the morning hours without a break. The muscles of the face relax, and the bard se...

POINTS OF A LADY'S HORSE AND HOW TO MANAGE HIM. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 3 March 1906

&-lifirS$F X LXt-Y'8 H0R8E ArJB HOW TO MANAGE HIM. ' '. A lady's horse must have a well-bred appearance. An underbred horse Is never trustworthy, and cultivates more bad than good habits; therefore, un suitable as a lady's horse. His paces should be perfect, especially the can cer, which is a lady's pace. In this he should be trained to excel. After a course of training he will be able to fall naturally into the canter and keep it up for a Ions period ol time.- Be sure that he~leads off with the right leg (the off), otherwise his rider will experience considerable discomfort. A young horse rarely makes a mistake, but an old worn horse changes legs to procure, rest, hence an uneven gait A bold, fearless horse is necessary, and should not show fright. A well bred, self-possessed horse will never seek his own safety regardless of yours. Ladies having (usually) less nerve than men, should of necessity ride a fearless horse, for therein lies their safety. Many lady riders (?) who...

She bore with patience his shortcomings, found excuses for him, ana look in wasmng to nelp nun earn the living. But one day 'Boozy' came home more intoxicated than usuaL He threw himself upon the bed without stopping to take off his shoes, and went to sleep. Then Mrs. Flinders's patience gave way, and she resolved to administer suitable punishment She procured at once a large sack, ripped it open, spread it on the bed by the side of her husband, rolled him over upon it and sewed him up in it with good strong twine, leaving only his head free. Six or eight hours later she rolled him over on his face, and with a stout serviceable rawhide, borrowed during the interval, she began operations. 'Wh-what's all this?' demanded Boozy, rousing himself. His wife was too busy lo answer him. Whack! whack! whack! fell the rawhide, wielded by an arm which ...
