Miniature Miniatures. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 25 June 1914

Miniature Miniatures. Probably the smallest pictures in the world ure those painted by Mr. •Samuel T. Schultz, of Camden, in the United States. One of these, a Well-balanced snow scene, with a windmill on the one hand and a house on the other, was painted on a single grain of wheat, when Mr. Schultz was only a lad of nineteen ! It came about in this way : Young Schultz was a great admirer of James Buchnnan, President of the United Stutes. When the president died, Schultz, whilst returning from the funeral, pluckcd an ear of corn from a field on the Buchanan estates. His original idea was to paint a portrait of James Buchanan, in miniature, on a grain of the corn. This, however, he found to be im possible, so he decided to substi tute a landscape, with the result described above. It was sent over to England to bo exhibited, and got lost. The tiny picture remained parted from its owner for more than half a century when he instituted a sys tem of advertising to help him in his search. ...

Oil and Wool from Pine Needles. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 25 June 1914

Oil and Wool from Pine Needles. Pine-needle oil is a product do rived from tho leaves of our pines (saj's tho "Scientific American"). It has been oxtracted for a great many years and is u'ell known tho world over as a remedial ngent against rheumatism and allied com plaints. It is a volatile, colourless liquid obtained by distillation of fresh needles, young twigs, and ono year-old com* of our western and southern yellow pines, In order to produce oil of the best quality, fresh green needles must bo collect ed during tho spring of the j'ear, probably in tho beginning of .Tune. Fine-nccdle pickers go from tree to tree and select tho young, thrifty green leaves at tho ends of twigs, which yield about 0.55 per cent, of volatile oil. Those of old trees, which arc dry and tough, producc jnuch less and of much poorer qual ity. A number of years ago this oil was supplied by a number of small stills or ordinary pharmaceutical distil lories. The still itself is. a very simply constructed app...

FACT, BUT FALSE. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 25 June 1914

KACT, BUT FALSE. { A certain f»rm, not in thiB country, state that they sell more than 12 mil lion false teeth every year. Thi6 fig ure may seem incredible, but, since we cannot disprove it, we can only accept it. Most people probably regard false teeth as a modern invention. As a matter, of fact, these useful, nay, es sential commodities, have been in existence for more than a century. The first successful maker was a certain Italian dentist, who bore the fearsome name Giussepangelo Fonxi. He he^an practising in Paris in the year 1798, and thanks to his skilful treatment of Lucien lJonaparte, soon made his way. ultimately receiving a gold mwlal from the Fiench Academy of Science. Among the distinguished persons J whom Ponzi titted with false teeth was the Empress of Uussia. After the Battle of Waterloo he migrated to London. Thence he went to Mad rid, where he provided King Ferdi nand VII. with so excellent a Bet of falBe teeth that the grateful monarch rewarded him with a handsome...

"PATIT 2. "After them !" screamed the voice of Snell. /'They are Gentleman George nnd an escaped convict." The police troopers did not rein tap, but dashed pnst him and his companions, letting their bridles fall to unsling their carbines. They were Walter Clifford and Ser geant Coxall. "Stop, or we fire !"- shouted the latter after the fugitives. "Surren der in the Queen's name." But tho pair paid no heed to the menace or command. It was a raco for life and liberty now. On they flew at neck-or-no thing speed. "Fire at the gentlemanly rogue, Walter," cried Sergeant Coxall. "Shoot his horse if you can. I'll try and bring down that other scarecrow rascul." Ping, ping ! The two bullets whistled perilously close to tho fu gitives, but missod them. "Fire again I" shouted the ser geant. Still galloping forward, Walter and he again brought their car bines to their shoulders, took hasty aim, and fired.

"That was touch and go, if you like," laughed Gentleman George, nonchalantly. "I could have easily outstripped them on bonnie Black Dess here, but I don't think you could have done so, mate. They'd have dropped you, to a certainty, with a feu4 moro shots had I left you." "I am deeply indebted to you for tho way you've helped ine," said Pick, gratefully, brokenly. " You have saved mo from death, for I was determined I should never go back alive to that prison-hell in Brisbane. That would bo a fate1 worse than death." "Say no more about that.

It was a patchy, scr.imbly sort of game, with occasional flashes of nice football, but absolutely no system whatever by either side. Tho visitors, who lookod a big team in their new and attractive uniforms, were faster to the ball and better in the air than tho home men, but thoy handled the leather badly and made poor use of it generally when iu possession. The locals, on the other hand, were surer in picking out their comrades, aud also adopted tho prac tice of kicking off the ground instead of picking the ball up and running, and this method was a big factor in their victory. Eight minutes after starting neither side had gained a point, then the locals got first score by registering a single, aud after some give aud take play ...

WORLD-WIDE NOTES. ♦ — NEWS FROM EVERYWHBRB. A GREAT JOURNAL. | The history of the "Times," which I the man in the street may now pob sees himself of for the democratic penny, begins with the history of modern Europe. The first number was produced by the first John Walter, in 1785, and it was called the "Daily Universal Register. It was christen ed the "Times in 1788, just before the outbreak of the French Revolution. Its first proprietor, it is interest ing to remember, was sent to gaol for severely censuring the Duke of York ; but while Mr. Walter was in prison hia paper went on serenely ex pressing a fully democratic opinion on current topics. For a hundred, years a John Wal ter was the chief proprietor of the "Times" ; and no reference to the really important affairs of English history, since the paper was estab lished, would be complete unless the "Times," somehow, was introduced into the matter. It lias made some serious blunders, but, on the other hand, it has often been the f...
