FACTS ABOUT PIANOS. . v ♦ Have you ever thought, when play ing .some melodious" sonata upon your piano, that the instrument, as it is to-day, is the perfection- of centuries of invention ? In the beginning it was a harp shaped picce of wood,.having two or three strings.- From time to time more strings were added, until , the cithara was invented. This "Vas an instrument in the shape of a capital VI1,"- with ten • strings stretched across vthe-open space. • .Many cen turies-afterwards musicians conceived the idea of strctchiug strings across an open box. "About.the year 12«*i this wus dono ; tho dulcimer mad? its appearance, and the- strings were struck , with hammers. .For. another hundred years or ho these ->hninnicrs were held in the hands, and then some genius invent ed a keyboard, which...being _ stuucK by tho fingers, caused the hammers to strike the strings.

HORSE-DEVOUMNO ANACONDAS. SNAKES OF THE UPPER AMAZON. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 29 January 1914

HORSE-DEVOUMNO ANA CONDAS. 4: SNAKES OF THE UIU'EK AMAZON. j In an articlo on reptiles, publish ed in the "Xfltaioiml Geographical Magazine," Curator Ditinars, of the , Now York Zoological I'nrk, makes the following statement regarding the length and size of the bon con strictors, or anacondas, of South America. "Specie* of the genus boa in habiting tropical America attain a maximum length of twelve to four teen feet." Having recently explored a scction of the Javnry Hiver region, situated about 2200 miles from the mouth of this grent river, I may state that T have assisted in the killing and skinning of a sucuruju, or ana conda, having a total length of 51 feet 8 inches when dried. This measurement was taken very carefully, and was witnessed by several men. The .statement mario by 3Ir. Pitmars would therefore seem too conservative, nnd possibly is ; the result. of a too limited knowledge of the fauna of .South America, and the tipper Amazon in particular.

Original Correspondence. We do not idontify ourselves with the opinions expressed by our eorreupuwlenta. TO TIIB EDITOB OF THE COURIER. Sib,—I crare space in your columns to write u Few words rogarding the manner in which the local State school has been con ducted during tho past twelre months. It's certainly n reflection on tho inteiligeneo*of the parents to allow such a state of things to exist for such a long period. I contend tho School Committee is responsible to a great oxtent in not protesting to tho Department long ago. When one analyses the committee we find only two having children attending school, and they have been added lately. The president and the secretary linve no children attending, consequently what should be a lire body is sadly neglected I would suggest that the committee be asked to resign in a body, and a meeting of parents held to elect a now lot who will assist the toucher.— INTERESTED.
