COSSACKS' AMAZING HORSEMANSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 19 August 1915
COSSACKS' AMAZING HORSE MANSHIP. Cossacks claim to be pure Russian stock, and point proudly to the fact that they fought for Russia as far back as the tenth century. There arc really two main types of Cos sacks-one known as the Little Rus sians, and the other us the Don Cossacks, the latter being the better and more enlightened type. Both the Little Russians and the Don Cossacks, however, who together number about 1,600,000 men, are born soldiers and splendid fighters. They are capable of doing anything in the saddle, and amuse themselves by such feats as leaping from the caddie while the horses are going at full gallop, and then remounting, springing from one horse to another riding double, snatching a man from the ground supposed to be wounded, and picking up coins as they hang head downwards from the saddl' while the horse is travelling at full speed. The Cossacks by reason of their military prowess, have for centuries past lived on land. granted them by the Russian Government as...
TOMBSTONES FOR MONKEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 19 August 1915
TOMBSTONES FOR MONKEYS. I . I Tucked away in one. corner of Montevideo, Uruguay, is a small, carefully-kept cemetery for receiving the deceased pets of wealthy families who often pay somewhat lavish fees for a small plot of ground. While in some cases the graves are supplied merely with headstones, there are many ol theco which have substantial monuments. It is not infrequently the case that these plots are looked after almost aa carefully as if they held the bodies of human beings. There ore dogs and monkoys, parrots and cats, and various other animals, resting beneath tombstones, their names inscribed in granite or marble and their graves adorned with llow ers.
ORIGIN OF ROYAL SALUTES. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 19 August 1915
OltlGIN OF ROYAL SALHTHS. 13o you know why a Royal salute consists of 101 guns? I-oril Fisher recently explained that this salute was primarily given in error. It was originally decreed that the Sove reign should be saluted with 300 guns, but once when the Duke of York, afterwards William IV., was being thus greeted by the ileet, the officer in chargc lost count, and so ordered another round to be fired "to make sure."
RUBBER STAGE TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 19 August 1915
HUBBEU STAGE TRRES. Pneumatic sccncry and stage set tings are now being used in an en deavour to make them more realis tic and at the same time conserve the portableness and convenience oI the present type of flat and built-up paper and wood forms. This is' made of a rubberised fabric and so arrang ed that it may be inflated quickly and moved about with ease. The idea has been worked out in repro ducing trees upon the stage, with the result that they appear very real from a short distance. A very large oak tree may be collapsed and packed in a small space for ship ment.

A HORSE'S MEDAL. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 19 August 1915
A HORSE'S MEDAL. A Russian artillery horfe won a bronze medal at Plevna. Orders were given for some ammunition waggonB to be hurried to a spot that meant crossing the enemy's zone of fire. All the time shells were crushing among the horses, bringing them down in heaps and frightening such as escaped. Times without number did the llusBian drivers, sparing neither whip nor spur, attempt to urge the horses forward, but they stood cowed and shivering with fright. Some were blindfolded ; but the effect was the same, and only one" horse showed any willingness to go. Thereupon the driver jumped down and, cutting the traces of the other horses, drove the willing one at full gallop through the fire. The waggon passed through without exploding, and after the war the horse was decorated in the manner described and the driver promoted.

America Fallen. A REMARKABLE PROPHECY. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 19 August 1915
America Fallen. A REMARKABLE PRO PHECY. Every other clay brings us a new version of the Buttle of Dork ing (says the American " Book man ") with its very necessary warning to the American people regarding the inadequacy of their national defence- Theso books are being written, i.iotas the late Frank R. Stockton's "The Groat. War Syndicate" was written, in a spirit of rollicking nonsense. There is litile attempt at humor, for since the first of last August war is not. a topic to be eonsidred in iis li timorous aspect. A year ago wo should probably have scoffed at these books as (lea-ling with what most of us considered to be a remote possibility. But there is no thought of scoffing now. We must learn the lesson of those terrible months, and the writers of these books seem de termined that we shall learn it. Perhaps as significant as any of them is Mr. J. Bernard Walker's "America I'alien." Long before the beginning of the war a chance word heard in Berlin by Mr. Walker stirred him to...

Hustling the Hens. ELECTRIC LIGHT INCREASES EGG-PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 19 August 1915
Hustling the Hens. RLECTRIC LIGHT INCREASES KGG-IJKODUCTION. JJalse daylight in fowl-houser. to promote better laying among hens is by no means a new idea, an 1 it haa been proved on several o:ca sions that fowls kept in electrically lighted coops, thus deceiving inno cent hens, who imagine the days are growing longer, produce far more eggs than those housed under ordin ary conditions. It has remained, however, (or Mr. G. C. Newell, of Chicago, to conduct aome of the most successful experiments in this direction. He keeps .150 hens in an enclosure .10ft. '.square at the back of his resi dence on Congress Park, Chicago, and during 1914 he obtained 18,000 eggs, or an average of an egg. every third day for each fowl, and he ex pects to bring this average up to an egg every other day for each fowl. Mr. Newell attributes his succcss entirely to his electrically-lighted :oops. "I found," said Mr. Newell, "that my fowls were not laying much in winter. They would go to roost earlier in the ...
