New Zealand Millionaire. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
;New Zealand Millionaire. A few days asro there died at his . residence, in the Dominion, William Graijfc, a very prominent New Zeal* ander, and a matt well-known in Ausw.o^ tralia' as a Rfoiklftve ter . 'He cam# : ? out from Scotland in 1 864, at. the age r-f 19, possessed of liirle hut a walkingstick, some sheepdogs, a fiue constitution, and a capacity for work. Not a very lar-;e equipment but, one that served him well. He bejran life in New Zealand as a shepherd at Orari i-iorge, and his capacity as » dealer in stock, was fostered by the permission he received from his em- ! ployer to run some cattle ot his own on the run. He soon took up stock dealing, doing a large business with the West coast in cattle, which he' drov.t over the mountains himself. Laier on he combined farming and dealing, and secured three larp-'e sta tions. He made several trips to the ; old. country for the purpose of bring- ' i igout stud stock. He made a great' , deal of money, and he will be remem bered b...

Random Readings. A MODERN SOLOMON [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
Random Readings. A MODERN SOLOMON Without detracting from Solo mon's reputation for wisdom, it may be said that the judge in the follow ing story displayed rio less shrewd ness and ingenuity in the dispensa tion of justice than the Hebrew King himself. The case occurred some forty years ago. A. workman claimed to have lost the .sight of his left eye in an explosion. There was no doubt about the explosion, and there was no doubt that the workman's eye had been injured ; but the physicians claimed that he could see out of it, while he stoutly declared that the sight was utterly destroyed. ..The Judge heard all the evi dence pro and con. Then, send ing, the workman from the court room, he said: 'Get a blackboard and write a sentence on it with green chalk. Al so get a pair of spectacles ' with ordinary clear glass for the left eye and with red glass for the right.' This, in the course of an hour or so was done. Then the workman was brought back, and he was or^:red to put the queer glas...
FIVE TONS OF RATTLE-SNAKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
FIVE TONS OF RATTLE SNAKES. The rattlesnake is the most dangerous reptile in the United States. Yet there is in America a man who sells five tons of them each season. 'I get them to sell to side-shows and variety entertainments,' he states. 'They are in great de mand, and the rattlesnake market is never glutted. They are very delicate, and usually live only a few weeks after their fangs are remov ed. To remove the fangs I force a broomstick down the snake's throat; then with a pair of pliers I just pull out the fangs. There are never enough rattlesnakes tip supply the demand, and they bring a good price.' A valley in the Rocky Moun tains is famous for the enormous quantity of rattlesnakes it har bours; the place is alive with them. To this spot the man goes for his supply. When attending to busi ness he is dressed m a suit of thick leather over a. suit of corduroy ^ He has felt boots over his leather boots, two pairs of thick gloves, a fur cap covering his head, neck, and shoulders,...
MOUNTING PRINTS WITHOUT COCKLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
MOUNTING PRINTS WITH OUT COCKLING. Many amateurs find it difficult to niount their prints, so that the mounts shall remain flat. 'My own method,' says C. Hartshorn, in 'Photography,' 'which certainly does not cockle the mounts and dov-s not interlere with tne gioss 01 the prints, is t the following: — The prints are squeezed before being trimmed, and when they are just about dry are brushed over the back with a thin coat of dextrine in wa ter. They are then allowed to get thoroughly dry, and are stripped and trimmed. When one of these prints is to be mounted, the mount is very slightly damped with a sponge, the print adjusted' in posi tion upon it, and the two placed between a couple of sheets of card board, and passed between the rol lers of an ordinary wringing mach ine. It will come out mounted se curely and perfectly flat. It is quite easy to apply the dextrine mountant to the prints without soiling the ferrotype, if a little care is used, and this should be done, as otherwise, ...
AT DANCING LESSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
AT DANCING LESSON. To most little girls and many lit tle boys the dancing-lesson is a de light. but not to all. The mother of one small boy, who usually accom panies him to the class, partly to en courage him, and partly to enjoy the orettv soeclacle, noticed one after noon lately that although he had bowed correctly before several little girls in turn, he had failed to secure a partner. Shfe beckoned him to her side. 'Why wouldn't any of those lit tle girls dance with you, Bobby?' she inquired. 'Did you ask them nicely?' 'Well, mamma,' admitted Bob by, reluctantly, 'I'm not sure whether it was nice, cxactly, but it was truthful; and you say I'm al ways to tell the truth. I said : 'May I have the pain of this dance with you?' and they wouldn't any of them dance with me. Bu|t you know perfectly well, mamma, it wouldn't have been true if I'd said 'pleasure.' '
The Camera. A HYPO TEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
The Camera. A HYPO TEST. It is useful to have a hypo test at hand For this we may take ten grains of potassium permanganate and twenty grains of soda carbon ate — crystals — and dissolve them in one ounce of water which has pre viously been well boiled, and allow ed to stand until cold. One drop of this solution will color half a tum blerful of water a pale pink tinge. If now we let the drippings from two or three negatives drop into this pink water and no change of color is observed, we may feel pret ty sure that the quantity of the hy po present is negligible ; but if the color is instantly discharged there is an unsafe quantity of hypo pre sent.
THE WOODPECKER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
THE WOODPECKER. It was. the peacock's birthday, and ^ large party had been invited to the poultry yard to celebrate it. Indeed, the invitations included -very kind of bird from the woods and fields round about, except tfie sparrow, whose manners were so perky that he was left out. Every one came except the swan, the night ingale, the lark, and the woodpeck er. No one was surprised at the swan's absence, as he had been liv ing in retirement for some time. The nightingale and the lark were readily excused, too, one being on a concert tour, and the other in deep mourning. But no one could think why the woodpecker stayed away. 'I call it putting on airs,' said the goose. ' What does he;do in the woods all day long, I should like to know?' asked the finch. 'Why, nothing but climb about and tap the trees,' replied the bull finch. 'And if that is music, I'm sure I don't want to hear it,' sneered the linnet. 'I can't see the good of all this tapping.' The peacock, who had been much offended...
EXTRAORDINARY GRINDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
EXTRAORDINARY GRINDING. In making diffraction gratings for examining the fine details of the spectrum of light, Professor A. A. Michelson contrived a wonderfully delicate method of grinding the screw, the turning of which controls the advance of the diamond point that scratches the parellel lines on the glass. By grinding with a nut, kept- wet with soap and- water, for several months, a first approxima tion to the desired accuracy was ob tained. Then a correcting nut, with an arrangement for rubbing harder on one side than on the other, was applied, and finally the errors were brought down to the 2.000.000th of an inch. To secure the rigidity re quired for a screw long enough to rule 250,000 lines on a grating fif teen inches long, the screw must weigh thirty or forty pounds. Nine tenths of this weight was supported on mercury. Great trouble was ex perienced in finding suitable dia mond, points. After the first year not a good one was found for six Crookes, a satisfactory diamond wa...
"GENTLEMAN." A Handful of Definitions. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
'GENTLEMAN.' A Handful ol Definitions. An 'esquire' is supposed to be 'a gentleman.' Some have suggested that a gentleman is anyone who maker, a thousand a year regular ly, while others assume that it is a man who wears a tall hat and is a member of a club. Carlyle defined a gentleman as one who Keeps a gig ' . I remember some time ago, in the course of a trial, a witness, be ing asked to define 'a gentleman,' emphatically excluded 'tradesmen and keepers of public-houses' from the category of 'Nature's noble men.' He was questioned as to 'a gentleman' keeping a public house, whereupon in contemptuous tones, he said that 'no gentleman keeps a public-house.' Among the definitions of 'a gen tleman' there was a famous one by an American actress — 'A man who can wear a clean collar without looking conspicuous' ; another, less famous, by a lowlier . sister — 'A man who wears spats' ; but the best was given in a London County Court case by a plaintiff, who, re ferring to the defendant, sai...
THEIR DAY AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
THEIR DAY AT HOME. When the first city family bought a place in Lanesboro and went up there to spend four months, the denizens, of the village looked at them askance, but before the season was over the new residents were on friendly terms with everyone; Mrs. Deacon Holland explained the mat ter to a visiting cousin that autumn. 'I gave them a little hint, that's all,' she said, cheerfully. 'Tlie neighbours had all been to see them and show their goodwill, and they'd returned the call^ — the Copes had — in their ruri*about, as they call it. 'They were running about them selves, Mrs. Cope and her daughter, the whole time, it seemed to us folks that have our own housework to do. They'd drop in mornings when we were busy as could be, and early af ternoons before we got the work done up, and then, they'd go riding off, scouring over the country. 'Well, one day they came in on me, right in the midst of straw berry jam, and Mrs. Cope said, 'We're thinking of having an af ternoon at home ev...
A NEW TOOL FOR ELECTRICIANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
A NEW TOOL FOR ELECTRI CIANS. A recent patent of particular in terest to electricians and plumbers covers a machine for boring holes through overhead beams, which does not require the operator to climb a ladder, but may be operated and directed from the floor. The machine is mounted ^»n a staff^pro vided with a foot which rests on the floor, and this staff may be adjusted -to bring the boring tool against the ated by means of a hand crank, and the feed is regulated by a chain, both within easy reach of the opera tor. The device is arranged to bore a double line of holes.
A GOOD IDEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
A GOOD IDEA. An ingenious idea has been put to practical use at Darlaston, in Staffordshire. While testing his cycle' wheel a man was impressed with its strength combined with lightness, and conceived the idea of inventing a huge wheel as a means of quickly removing the top earth from iron ore. A stoam shovel digs and removes the top soil on the rim of the wheel, which then re volves, the refuse being carried round to the place where it is desir 'ed to shoot it. ? The wheel rests on a movable platform, and large mas ses of earth are removed with great rapidity.
THE PORHYDROMETER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
THE PORHYDROMETER. An ingenious little instrument which weighs the whole cargo of a ship at one operation, and records the change in the vessel's weight when a passenger steps on or off, has been recently tested. Its name is the porhvdrometer. the in strument is based on the infallible' principje that a body floating in a liquid of whatever density displaces a quantity of that liquid exactly equal to its own weight, and bv its application a vessel is transformed into a gigantic weigh-bridge or weighing machine. The porhvdro- J meter will be of immense value in minimising the danger from leaks on vessels, for attached to the in strument is an electric bell which gives warning should a leak occur.
600,000 KINDS OF ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
600,000 KINDS OF ANIMALS. How recent a science is that which used to be called natural history, but which is now divided into so many branches, is shown by some figures presented to the British As sociation for the advancement of science. In 1830 the total number of species of animal life known was 73,588; this included 49,100 kinds of insects, 11,000 of molluscs, 3600 of birds, and 3500 of fishes. In 1881 the total number had increased to 311,653 ; the birds and fishes had grown to 11,000 each, molluscs to 33,000, and insects to the surprising number of 220,150. Of spiders alone there were then known 8070 sorts. In the years since 1881 the number of new species discovered each year has averaged 12,000, so that now there are catalogued and described in round numbers 600,000 kinds of animals.
ORIGIN OF SEX. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
ORIGIN OF SEX, The question of the origin of sex is one of the problems of the day which seems less hopeless than many others, doubtless because it can be dealt with in ah experimental way. The investigations of the Cambridge School of Biologists, which, under the . guidancejpf Professor. Bateson, has been studying the so-called Men delian phenomena, have yielded re sults that, if not as satisfactory as was hoped by the more enthusiastic workers, are at least tangible and valuable. . It is at present impos sible to . decide whether the sex is predetermined in the egg or whether external conditions effect a change. Modern biologists favour the view that sex is already predetermined, but this statement does not really remove the difficulties of the matter. If the sex is so predetermined, what then was the predetermining cause? It has been stated in a general way that after a war in a country con siderably more males are born than females, in order to fill up the losses caused by disea...
YOUNG TURTLES AND COLOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
YOUNG TURTLES AND COLOR. The eggs of the loggerhead turtle are laid in the sanu at some distance from the sea. As soon as the young are hatched, however, they move with unerring instinct to the water. Experiments carried out by Mr. Davenport Hooker, and recorded in the annual report of the Carnegie In stitution, suggest-that this may be due to a colour sense. It is found that newly-hatched loggerhead tur tles move away from red, orange, and green, but are attracted by blue. Under normal conditions, then, the blue gleam of the sea may be supposed to attract them, while fcliey. will turn away from the reds and greens of the land. Again, when placed in a large sandpit from which neither green bushes nor blue sea could be seen the young turtles showed no- tendency to move in a definite direction. When they reach the sea they swim out, apparently attracted by the dark blue of the deeper water.
ALASKA'S CLIMATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
ALASKA'S CLIMATES. The coast region of Alaska, says Professor A. S. Hitchcock, has much rain and snow, but an equable tem perature, and the winter at Sitka is no colder than at Washington. The snowfall at Valdez has reached 60ft., and the rainfall at Sitka lllin. in a season. The Yukon basin, on the contrary, has a continental climate, very cold in the winter, although the summer temperature may reach 90 deg. Fahrenheit in the shade. The rainfall is small. The soil is per manently frozen for several yards below the surface, .but a thin surface layer thaws out every summer. The tundra region about Ndtne has a still different climate,- more severe than that of the interior. There the marshy lands, interspersed with ponds and lakes, have few grasses, but on the hills and gravelly knolls, there is a greater variety of grasses than in the interior.
