LETTER FROM ABROAD, A GLIMPSE OF IRELAND. THE LAKES OF KILLARNEY. AN EMIGRANT'S FAREWELL. Great Southern Hotel, Kingdom of Kerry, Cork, June 30th, 10911. We went up to Liverpool by the Mid land Railway and crossed from there to Dublin by packet steamer, It is an eight hours trip across the Irish Sea and fortunately we had a smooth passage., We went straight away down to the LAKES OF KIILLARNEY, a distance of 185 miles. So much has been written about the famous Lakes of Killarney that I am not going to give a long and perhaps very inadequate des. criptlon. Like the Lochs of Scotland and the English Lakes they have a beauty of their own, and I am not going to make comparisons between the three world-famed beauty spots, But I will say, that to my mind we saw the most magnificent varied and lovely panorama of the whole trip from the lordly deme.tno of Lord Kenmare, KILLARNEY HOUSE, The site for this mansion, we were told, was chosen by Queen Victoria, and surely there can be nothing to ...
SOLID SPACE AND SPONGEWORLDS. DOES MAN LIVE INSIDE A SOLID? [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 15 August 1914
SOLID SPACE AND SPONGE WORLDS. DOES MAN LIVE INSIDE A SOLID? AmIDST the distractions of the war the arrival in Australia of members of the Science Association of Great Britain is likely to be overlooked to a certain extent by the man in the street, yet this learned delegation of exponents of the triumphs of peace should exercise more beneficial influence on the Aus tralian people than the pages of war news that are now being so eagerly scanned to the exclusion of all other considerations. The science delegates are being handsomely entertained at Adelaide, as will doubtless also be the case in Melbourne and Sydney. The ranks of the visitors include many of the world's'foremost leaders of thought in all departments, and their presence among us, and speeches, should exercise the Australian mind in the things that Count. The newspaper reports, for ir. stance, of Sir Oliver Lodge's address on the ether of space, or of Sir Edward Schaefer's ideas on the origin of life, or of Professor Rut...

Northcote Park Grand Stand Carnival. The fancy dress procession will be held to-day, starting from the corner of High and Hutton streets at 2.15 sharp, Spectators along the route should wit ness a splendid display, as the towns people are responding readily to the appeal made to them, and the success of last year should be outdone. Those taking part in the procession are again reminded that the orders of the marshal (Mr. T.
