One of the society's inspectors said he found burns three inches in diame ter inside the horse's mouth. Manning admitted that he had burnt the animal, and said, "I have fired thousands, and I hope to fire many more." A veterinary surgeon named Davis, who w...

ENGLAND AND GERMANY CEASELESS HUMAN TIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 February 1914
ENGLAND AND GERMANY CEASELESS HUMAN TIDE. Here is. a clever article by Mr F. W. Wile, the Berlin correspondent of "Tho Daily Mail." which shows the remark able cignificance of the Night Train to Berlin. It shows how great world movements may be happening under our very noses without anybody realising what they mean—not even the scaremongers. , "if X had a mandate to lay the foun dations of a treaty of peace and good will between Great Britain and Ger many I should not choose for a back ground Mr Carnegie's mirrored temple of brotherly love at the Hague, or stately Westminster Hall, or the his toric Congress Room of the Imperial Chancellor's palace, says Mr "Wile.

MOTH BEATS MAN [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 25 February 1914
MOTH BEATS MAN Ingenuity in insects has never been more-remarkably illustrated than in a discovery just made by an entomologi cal expert at Histon, in Cambridge shire (says "The Daily Express"). One of the greatest pests which fruit growers in this country have to con tend with is the winter moth. It be gins to appear in October, and the fe male, whose wings are very short and quite unadopted to fight, climbs the trunks of the fruit trees and deposits her eggs. These hatch out in the spring-, and the caterpillars soon devour tfie young: leaves. Hitherto fruitgrowers have in Sep tember placed round each fruit tree a band covered with a sticky substance, and when the female moth, climbing up the trunk, comes to the band, she is held fast by the sticky substance. Recently, however, the female moth has been found from time to time above the band, and 'the mystery has been how she could have got there. The en tomological expert of Messrs Chivers and Sons, the well-known fruit growers of ...

NAME OF RECEIVING-OFFICE. PROBABLE CHANGE. The following letter (addressed to Mr Jas. Bennett, M.H.R.) has been for- warded to us for publication :— Postmaster-General's Department. Melbourne, 5th February, 1914. Sir,—I beg to inform you that a communication has been received at this office from Mr Wm. H. Thomas, hon. secretary to the District Progress Association, Upper Moondarra, urging that the name of the local receiving office be changed to Erica, It was previously represented by the Progress Association that the name should be changed to Harris, which is the name of the local railway station, but this was not considered suitable by the Department as there is a post office in Western Australia similarly designa- ted, and it was thought that confusion would probably arise in the transmission of correspondence, apart from the un- desirableness of duplicating names of offices in the Commonwealth. The name Erica is regarded as a suitable one, but before it is decided to take furthe...

The Penalty for Non=Assurance. Who Pays It? [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 March 1914
V.", 'sJ: The Penalty for Non=Assurance. — Wlio Pays It; ? i One of the greatest sins of modern life is the insatiable desire to secure ^everything possible at the expense of someone else. It arises from a two-fold source: One is to study and lay snares for the un wary; the other^ to refuse to consider the moral aspects and bearings of living. The police look after the law-breakers in the former class, and protect those who would suffer from such depredations. But there is no social order to take ijp the case of the man who belongs to the latter class, and whose victims are generally most innocent and in pJTejisive. The Rev, R. K. Ryan, a Presbyterian minister of Chicago, recently gave some sound advice, te> "-those who are. so indifferent I to the moral aspects of their dtities. that they make no provision for the calamities which they know must occur in the case of an early death of the bread-winner. Among the many philosophical observations which Dr. Ryan set forth we find him...
