DISTRICT NEWS. - (From Oar Own Correspondent*). EURELIA. We are glad to be able to report that the neck straining &lt;as your Car rieton correspondent is pleased to call it) is at an end for a few days, as the weather took a favourable turn on Saturday night last, and a private gauge in the vicinity of this town measured over a quarter of an inch of rain. This fall was accompanied by thunder and lightning. The rain should liven things up a bit, as farm-, ers were feeling rather "seedy." Some few, taking time by the fore lock, and going on an exploring ex pedition in their wheat paddocks, found some malted grain and speed ily set the drill going once more. Mr. J. J.

TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 27 June 1919
TATTLE. By "The Man on the Wire." "Snowy" Smart played a good game ior Saints, and has adopted tlie good practice of playing on until the hell rings, instead of appealing to the umpire. S. Conlin. in goal, played well, and lie repeatedly saved the situation at most critical times. Fogarty, Brennan. and Mills were most conspicuous of the other Saints. Billy Wall appeared to be a little on the rough side on Saturday, and it is a wonder he was not reported by the um pire. "Bill" Adams shone out well for the Ramblers, but had the misfortune to be kicked during the progress of the second quarter. Dickson was a great man for his team, and at times seemed invincible. Taylor. Shields. BroWn. and Meadows also played well for their side. We have reported about Cummings' goal 111 the second quarter, after the bell had rung'. The timekeepers stated that the bell had rung just as the ball had left the other man's boot. Allowing that the umpire had heard the bell, we say the Cummings had no right...

ST. ANACLETUS V. RAMBLERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 27 June 1919
ST. ANACLETUS v. RAMBLERS. The St. Anacletus and Ramblers met on Saturday last for the first time this year, and naturally attracted a great crowd. The. game was fast right through, and at times players were in clined to be a little on the rough side. Tlie Ramblers were handicapped by the absence of Dodd from their chosen 18, whilst the. Saints* elect 18 donned the colours." Mr. Whittaker had charge of ?the game (or. at least, was appointed by the Association to have charge), but his exhibition was very' poor. His great fault was in allowing the players to tell him what to do. The teams were as fol lows : St. Anacletus: Erennan (captain). Mills (vice). Dickson, Roberts. Jenkins, Cain. Smart (2), Clancy, Conlin (2), Fogarty. Mesnil, Cummings, Graves, Wall, King, Hawkins. Ramblers: Adams (capt.), Taylor, Meadows, McNamara, Rimes, Shields, Flatten. Blight, Brown, Brim age.

SEAWEED FOR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 27 June 1919
SEAWEED FOR FOOD. 1 A man of science lias predicted that sooner or later, "store-tided seaweeds" * predigeeted sargas sum," "cream ol Ee* ujoss," and other nautical foods will be popular articles of diet. That certain kinds of seaweed are edibU h,-.6 long been knov.n, but, fortu nately, the human race has not yet been forced to depend on this source for its regular meals. In the " Technical World Magazine" a writer discusses the possibilities of sea weed. Seaweeds have been eaten and en joyed for centuries, and in parts oi the Orient are a staple article o1 diet-the literal '"staff of life." Many varieties are composed lar gely of gelatin. These have been e.t n for ages by the Chinese, Ja panese, and the inhabitants of man; islands in the Pacific Ocean. A cleaner and more wholesome ar ticle of Ciet cannot be imagined, and travellers who have tried it pro nounce it to be both palatable and digestible. There is no reason why it should not take the place of seme of the common foods in ...

OWLS FOR ORCHARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 4 July 1919
OWLS FOR ORCHARDS. The fruit growers of New Zealand., after long endeavouring in vain to circumvent the small bird pest, re cently hit upon the experiment of trying owls. A hundred small Ger man owls were ordered, and a part of the birds were delivered and they were liberated in .'the fruit-growing districts and immediately, proved a wonderful success. They killed wax eyes, finches, green linnets, thrushes, blackbirds, and sparrows ; also mice rats, and young rabbits. They fed their young on caterpillars, grubs, and beetles, and their only fault seemed to be an occasional fondness? ,for a chicken from the farmyard. "Absolutely nothing in the news papers ! Nothing but politics."
POLAR PINE FORESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 4 July 1919
POLAR PINE FORESTS. Professor David, who holds the Chait of Geology in the University oi Sydney, and who accompanied Sir Ernest Shackleton in his recent expedition to the Antarctic, has been making some interesting observations On his discoveries there. The fossil woods he had found showed that pine forests had flourished in the vicinity of the South Pole at a remote geo graphical epoch. The coal seams he had discovered suggested the same conclusion. At that time there was more or less continuous land from Australia to the South Pole. The climate all over the world was at that period much milder than at present. A remarkable flower grows on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec whifch chan ges its colour three times a day. In the morning it is white, at noon it is red, and at night it is blue. At noon it gives out a strong perfume, while at any other time it is per tectly odourless.
VANISHING LAKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 4 July 1919
VANISHING LAKES. Whether the globe on which we dwell is gradually drying up or not is a question that has been much de bated. Recent discoveries in Central Asia have been regarded by some as favouring an affirmative answer, but others have replied that the observ ed phenomena are simply periodic changes. Dr. Walser, of Zurich, champions the affirmative view on the ground that a great number of European lakes have certainly disap peared within the last 250 years. The canton of. Zurich, for example, had 149 lakes a quarter of a century ago, and only has 76 to-day. He believes that a similar tendency to disappearance has affected the lakes qf Germany and Russia.

EARTH WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 4 July 1919
EARTH WAVES. The perfected earthquake recorders now in use detect many curious move ments of the crust of the globe, which, while they escape our unaided senses, may nevertheless play an un expected part in the economy of the planet. Two kinds of microseismic oscillations have been discovered, one having a period of from four to nine seconds, and the other a period of about half a minute. The former is often observed simultaneously over large portions of the earth. Dr. Klotz, in Canada, has observed that whenever a centre of low barometric pressure, after traversing the con tinent, reaches the ocean, these strange oscillations appear. Profes sor Wiechert suggests that they may be due to the impact of ocean waves,, the force of which varies with the etate of the air. A special observa tory is to be set up on the west coast of Ireland to study them. The microseismic oscillations of a period of half a- minute appear to be due to local winds, which set up a wave motion on the land simil...
