THE SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 26 February 1910

THE SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD. ' The following convenient rhyme will enable people to rememoer easily the Seven wonders of the World:— 'The Pyramids first, which in Egypt were laid; Next, Babylon's Garden) 'for Amytis made; Then Mausolus' Tomb of affection and guiit; . - Fouriu, the Temple of Diana, in Eph- ' -: esus built; The Colossus of Rhodes, cast in brass to the sun; Sixth, Jupiter's Statue by Phidias done; The Pharos of Egypt, last wonder of old, Or Palace of Cyrus, cemented with gold.'

IRRIGATION IN CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 26 February 1910

IRRIGATION IN CHINA. The Chinese secure a vast quantity of food 6f one sort or another through their canals. ? To appreciate the exact situation with respect to the water ways, it must be realised that the canals in China cover the plain coun try with a network of water. Lead ing from the Grand Canal in each direction are smaller canals, and from these lead still smaller canals, until there is hardly a single tract of forty acres which, is not reached by some sort of a ditch, generally capable of carrying good sized boats. The first reason for this great network is the needs of rice cultivation. During practically all the growing season for rice the fields are flooded. Wherever a natural waterway can be made to irrigate the rice fields it is used, but, of course, from these to the canals' or larger rivers there must be water ways. Where natural streams canuot thus bo adopted the Chinese lead . water in canals or ditches to the edges of their fields and raise it to the fields of rice...

THE THREE LESSONS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 26 February 1910

THE THREE LESSONS. There are three lessons I would write, Three words as with a burning pen, In tracings of eternal light, Upon the hearts of men: Have Hope. Though clouds environ now, And Gladness hides her face iu scorn, Put thou the shadow from thy brow:— No night but hath its morn. Have Faith. Where'er thy bark is ' driven — The calm's disport, the tempest's mirth Know this — God rules the host of Heaven, The inhabitants of earth. Have Love. Not love alone for one, But man as man thy brother call, And scatter, like the circling sun, Thy charities on all. Thus grave these lessons on thy soul Faith, Hope, and Love — and thou shalt find Strength with life's .surges rudest roll, Light when thou else were blind.

Caustic 'In His Cups.' A solicitor came into a county court the worse for liquor, and the judge felt that he must take public notice of his condition. 'Sir,' he said, 'I am very sorry to see you in a condition which is a disgrace to yourself and family and the profession to which you belong.' This reproof elicited the following colloquy: 'Did your honor speak to me?' I did, sir. I said, sir, that iu luy opinion you disgraced yourself, the court, and the profession by your course of conduct.' 'May , i-i-it please your honor, I have been practising in — in this c-court for fifteen years, and permit me to say, your honor, that this i& the first correct opinion I ever knew you to give.' ?

The Swiftest Yet. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 26 February 1910

The Swiftest Yet. ^ ^ A wealthy broke.!- has a big coun try place. He put a large searchlight on top of his stone water tower, and from time to time, at night, amuses himself by throwing the light around the country. One night last summer he wa-s on uie tower piaying wiin tne searcn light. A man, driving a skittish horse hitched to a trap in which there were ? ' two ladies, was coming along a road leading to the place, and was about four miles from the village. The broker threw the searchlight ? down the road. 'Hang it!' exclaimed the stranger, . 'here comes one of those pesky mo tor cans.'^ He jumped out and took the horse by the head. The light continued on the road for half a minute and then was switched away. The driver stood stupefied. Then he turned to the la dies and said, in an awed voice: ? ? ? 'Jeerusalem! That motor must be ^ going fast. It's gone by, and I didn't - even see it.'

PTOMAINE POISONING. A FAMILY AFFECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 26 February 1910

PTOMAINE POISONING. A FAMILY AFFECTED. The members of a family re- siding at 94 O'Shanassy-street,   North Melbourne, had an un- pleasant experience on Wed. last. After partaking of some potted meat they were seized with symp- toms of ptomaine poisoning, and have since been under treatment by Dr. Broyer, of Courtney-street. Those affected were Mr Richard Atkinson, driver, in the employ of Messrs Currie and Richards, Elizabeth-street; his five chil- dren — Frederick, aged 20; Bertie, 17 ; Ray, 15 ; Ida, 12 ; and Rose, 9 ; and his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Mr and Mrs S. Emery. When Dr. Broyer ar- rived he found them lying about in a state of prostration, and he   applied the usual remedies with good effect. Mr Atkinson and three of the children— Frederick, Ida, and Ray — were most affected, but they are now nearly well, again. Dr! Broyer thinks that the potted meat had just been taken off the ice before it   was eaten, and that decomposi-...
