A STROKE FOR A THRONE. Eizabeth Petrowna, daughter of Peter the Great, was tlio natural suc cessor to her brother, Peter Tl„ on the Russian throne By the latter's will, however, the empire passed to a cojus In, Anne of Courland, who handed Ii on at her death to a nephew, Ivan, two years of age. Ivan was proclaimed Czar, and his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Brunswick, appointed themselves lie. sents during his minority: but. their administration was extremely unpopu lar in Russia and distasteful to the other European Powers. The Princess Elizabeth continued to reside at Court, apparently uninter ested in affairs of State until the dan gers of her position were made clear to her. As the dynastic heir to the throne and the idol of the people, she was the object of the Regents' jeal ousy and suspicion. Secret informa tion compelled her to choose between a desperate stroke for the crown that rightfully belonged to her, or the cer tainty of death on the scaffold. Stirred to action by ...

Slow Trains, A speeding up of the trains on the Chillingollah and Sea Lake lines is promised with the com pletion of the scheme o'f improve ments at the Korong Vale station Railway officials Claim that the lack of facilities at the station is the chief cause of the unsatisfac tory average speed of 'trains on the Chillingollah and Sea Lake lines. They stated last Thursday that when the station and yards were remodelled it would be pos sible to accommodate three trains at one time. At present only one train could be drawn into the station, and as the Chillingollah, Sea Lake and Bendigo trains were due to arrive at about the same time interruption was caused to the traffic. The Sea Lake train had to be delayed 44 minutes, and the Chillingollah 84 minutes. At Wycheproof passengers for Sea Lake had to experience a further delay, because i\t that station the train from Korong Vale was practically remade.

PASSING OF THE LEECH. -t — DECREASE IN SALES—THE METHODS OK CAPTURE. v Another o( our cherished ideas will soon be no more. The leech lias been > deposed from its sovereignty, and its "passing" forms the sulijcct of an nrticle in the "Alois Littcraire ct 1'ittorcsqnc.," by M. Jacques lioyer, who tells us that prior to 1870 a — dozen wholesal: houses in Paris were engaged in the traflic of this "gibier pharmaceutique," and tliat they sold between 300,000 and •(00,000 a month at the rate of 230 francs, or £10 per 1000. One house alone survives, and the number sent out is 130,000, nnl the price has fallen to about 70 francs per 3000. What we may term the lcech far mer for want of n better name,-we are told is l'hiridiculteur, who for merly exercised his calling in the neighbourhood of Bordeaux in an artificial marsh. He had several in firm horses, and these poor creatures were induced by trickery to take a hath in the marsli, with the result that the. growing leaches got n feed at t...

SEIZING AN OPPORTUNITY. A Student's Predicament. Out of the poverty of his chlldhouu, an energetic young lellow had fought *" his way through the University. After graduation he felt he must see Europe, and with tho little accumulation he jiad he "crossed the Pond," trusting to good luck to get him home again. But his trip of sightseeing over, he found himself in Liverpool without monej and with no means of getting any.

SPRAYING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 24 January 1914

SPRAYING POTATOES. I The attention of potato growers_ is drawn to the importanco of spraying thoir crops with Bordeaux mixture as a protection against potato disease. In wet seasons spraying is of groat value, while oven in dry seasons, although no diseaso may bo apparent, tho treatment is found to bo beneficial; producing a longer period of growth and. an increas ed yield. The crop should be sprayed twice, and tho first spraying should talto place as soon as there is good" de velopment of haulm. About three weeks later the treatment should ;be repeated.;' The ordinary Bordeaux mix- ■ ture, which has proved to be very ef fective, is made as follows:—Sulphate of copper or "Milestone," 121b.; quick lime, Gib.; water, 1001b. In purchasing tlio sulphate of copper, it is necessary to |*ct tho material with 98 ,per cent, purity, and to have a gnaranteo to. that effect. Substances offered morely as "agricultural sulphate of copper" should bo aifoided. " ."Oh, I'm iii such trouble I My litt...
