SPLENDID COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 January 1909
SPLENDID COURAGE. The deepest test of a man's char acter often lies in the way in which lie meets some great crisis. The hero ism which laces painful, lingering: anu unromantic death, unaccompanied uy the beat of the drum, the note of the bugle, and the inspiration of the bat tlefield, is one of the highest that is given to mankind to display. Professor Schrotter, who died lately in Germany, has left an account of his personal relations to the Kaiser, Frederick III., both as a physician and as the bearer of- the fatal news which told him he was 'to yield his life to a stronger power than himself. The Crown Princess begged me to make the sad communication as quick ly as possible. It now became my pain ful duty to report to his Imperial High ness regarding our investigations and opinions. This took place in the pre sence of her Imperial Highness, Un crown Princess, and I must state it as one of the most touching and im pressive scenes in my life. The illustrious patient, on _ whose co...

DRY FARMING. Mrjohn Jones of Bcrrigan, whose views on the above subject are pub lished in the '.'Advocate''^ of .last ? issue? are reprinted for the informa tion .of those interested. He says As ciry farming is a much discussed topic, just now I am taking the op portunity of explaining the system from' my standpoint. ' In the first place; I take it to mean storing mois ture, in .the soil for a dry time, which in dry years can, only rbe: done by a! system;of early, fallowing, that is, starting to plough for same before the-winter sets in, as ifleft later it-is a very "great chance if you'will get the; required moisture ,to enable you . to get a mellow fallowr and having got fame "to be sure and keep it mellow, which can be done by.harrowing or Scarifying after every rain (light or beavy).

A POLITICAL MARVEL. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 January 1909
POLITICAL MARVEL. A political "boss" of the United States, such as Mark Hanna was, must be a very remarkable man. Imagine an army of 7,062,444 elec tors-that is the number of votes ob tained by Mr. McKinley in 1896- an army scattered over a territory as large as half of Europe, and composed of the most licteorgenous and diverse ele ments, from black.to white; an army embracing in its ranks Irishmen, Ger mans, Italians, Japanese, negroes, half-breeds, all races and all tongues; an army containing Catholics, Presby terians, Episcopalians, Israelites, Free Thinkers, followers of Confucius, and of Mormon, all beliefs and all sects. Imagine this hybrid disunited, chao tic army, this vertitable human mob blended and solidified to such,, a de gree that it actually forms but one soul and one body, disciplined as no army of soldiers has ever been, man oeuvring with a precision and a unity that are proofs of genius, growing or diminishing .according; to circum stances, sometimes beaten, but n...

QUEEN ALEXANDRA AS PHOTOGRAPHER. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 January 1909
QUEEN ALEXANDRA AS PHOTOGRAPHER. Wherever the Queen goes-"be it a cruise in the Royal yacht, to her home in Denmark, or a ride across country in tl) Highlands-she is never without her camera. That she uses it well is evident when it is stated that during one of her Mediterranean cruises she secured 1400 photographs in six weeks. Then it is very seldom, too, says a writer in "Tit-Bits," that the Queen throws out a picture or destroys a ne gative because the subject is not up to the mark. In her way of going to work she is most methodical. Her photographs fill many albums, and under each photo graph Her Majesty has written a des cription of the picture and the date when taken. They include a great va riety of subjects, from the King's stud horses, taken in the old days at the animal sale at Wolferton, to portraits of her grandchildren on the lawn at Sandringham and the ruins of the Parthenon. The. photographs of her grandchil dren fill three albums alone, and now amount to several tho...

AN ACCURATE CLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 January 1909
AN ACCURATE CLOCK. In the observatory of Columbia Uni versity is one of the most accurate clocks in-the world. *lt lias run for several months with a mean error of only fifteen-thousandths of a second and a miximum error of thirty-thous anths of a second per day. That means that it docs not vary more than hall a . sccond a month, or six seconds a year. Compare this with the first pocket timepiece, the "Animated Ey# of Nu remberg-,n which required wjnding twice a day and varied an hour and a half in the same time! Compare it with some highest. priced watches . .manufactured to-day, which often vary more than ten seconds a week, and you will have some idea of the refine ments in the science of measuring time. N Yet even this accuracy is surpassed .by some famous timepieces, if the trade magazines are to be believed There have been accounts in them oi clocks or watches that have varied Jess a second in periods as long as ten years. The clock in the University of Co lumbia is an astrono...

A CHILD'S CHARACTER. May be Judged from His Carriage. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 January 1909
Jl CHILD'S CHARACTER. May bo,,Judged from His Carriaga. It is said that a child 'betrays his character far more accurately by the way he stands than by his features, or even his expression. Without glanc ing at the shape of the head, the chin, or the mouth-which are an open book to the physiognomist-the poise-read er studies the child as he stands at case, choosing a moment when he is perfectly unconscious of attention. A- properly developed child, deter mined, well-balanced mentally, and healthy in mind and body, will be seen to stand squarely, his heels and toes planted firmly on the ground, his shoul ders even, his hands hanging straight against his side, ' and his fingers stretched out, while his chin, though lifted, is not raised ostentatiously, which is the case where conceit is a dominant trait. . A child with a vacillating, weak, na ture, with little will power, and, even at the age of five or six, incapable of holding his own with his nursery play fellows, will, on the cont...

THE DAIRY. ROPY MILK AND CREAM. PREVENTIVE MEASURES. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 January 1909
THE DAIRY. ROPY MILK AND CREAM. PREVENTIVE MEASURES. In warm weather what is knwn aa "ropy" or "stringy" milk and crcam ia frequently met with.- It is objectionablo on account of its unwholesome appear ance rather than^ecauso of any known harmful effect caused by its consump tion. The slimy, viscid condition of tho inlllc is exceedingly disgusting to tho cprisumer, anil Us occurrence constitutes a serious menace to the succcss of a. milk route. This fault in milk is one of finan cial rather .than hygienic importance. The subjcct of "ropy" milk and cream Is thoroughly dealt with In some bulle tins recently issued by . the Cornell Ex perimental Station of Ithaca, America. The author of the bulletins points out thitt "tho surface of thp vessel of milk, and* therefore, generally the cream, be comes viscid, and will string (out in long, fine threads." Skim milk is'just as lia ble to become ropy as the cream or whole milk. "Cold does not prevent tho occurrence of the slimy condition. Afte...
