Unknown Parts of the Earth.

St. Augustine's Choir. To the Editor of "The Brunswick and Coburg Leader." [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 30 January 1914

St. Augustine's Chor. ' .. " ^ ---^--- - To the Editor of "The Brunswick and Coburg Leader." Sir,- Pormit me to make known a few facts concerning this matter. 1. "An -Australian" would have it that Mr. Bailey is .a mere nobody, of no standing in church circles whatso ever. If this is so, how was it that when Mr. Bailey arrived in ihis state, the Archbishop- almost immediately granted him -an honorary reader's li cense?. I can safely leave the public to choose between "An Australian" and his "local churchmen's" opinion of Mr. Bailey, and His Grace the Archbishop's opinion of Mr. Bailey. - And again, if "An Australian's"! contention is true, why was Mr. Bailey: allowed to read the lessons, assist in the service, and last, but not least, preach in St. Augustine's? Surely the Vicar would not have permitted him to do all this if he was not satisfied with Mr. Bailey's credentials. If the Arch bishop anl the Vicar were both satis fied with Mr. Bailey's bona-fides, what. right have "An Aust...

The Returns from the Melbourne Tramway Co. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 30 January 1914

The Returns from the Mel bourne Tramway Co. From the balance sheets of the Mel bourne Tramway Company, the 'am ount paid in dividends in 1886 amoun ted to £29,250. The best year was in 1889, just about. the height of the boom period, when the amount paid away.in dividends was £180,000. This was equivalent to 72 per cent. on capital (being capital, less bonus after wards applied to capital, £250,000). From 1893 to 1898 the amount distri buted dropped to £24.000, and each of the years 1908, 1909. 1910, the am-' ounts increased to £96,000. From these returns it is very obvious that there is plenty of scope in the metro politan area for motor bus companies.

General News. The annual Sunday school picnic in connection with Holy Trinity Church, Coburg, was held at Williamustown on Monday (Foundation Day), and was a source of intense pleasure to a large number of youngsters of both sex, w'ho enjoyed the day by the sea thboroughly. Tlhough the weather was most unpro- pitious at the start, it cleared up, and a beautiful afternoon was experienced. Most of the officials of the church lent a willing hand in securing the happi ness of their young charges, amongst them being tlie new incumbent (Rev. F . W. Newton), Rev. W. McKie, Mr. C. Andrews, anid others. There was any amount of batting and other sports and refreshments, to keep the young spirits going, so that it was a happy though tired crowd of juveniIes, and many of their parents, that re turned to Coburg shortly after nine o'clock.

Increased Valuations. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 30 January 1914

t Trunswick I ant Gobur3 n Leater. n PUBLISHED. ON FRIDAY MORNING. q FRIDAY, JANUARY 30, 1914 t t Increased Valuations. It would seem that there was a larg I number of complaints in regard to marked increases in the valuation of properties, both in Bruniswick and t Coburg. Some of the ratepayers are raising their protests in the shape of C correspondence submitted to the Councils concerned. and doubtless the question will be very fully discussed at t the meetings of the two bodies. Of C course in the ordinary growth of a bor- ( ough, town. or city, the value of the s: ,,;perty naturally increases, but there i are. apparently, if statements by in- I dignant property owners are true, a cases in which there have been in- 1 creases which, to put it midly, are startling. One resident of Moonee Vale, for instance, contends that the valuation of his property has been in creased a hundred per cent. This, of course, seems to be out of nll reason, ,spccially when the locality and its want of ...

It was in a sordid, evil-smelling street in a Frankfort slum that.the lazzling fortunes of the great house At Rothschild were cradled in the lat :er half of the eighteenth century.

Within these narrow bounds hundreds of Jews led their narrow ives.

The results of the ob servations made established the fact that disconnected tones on string ed instruments created no effect upon horses beyond causing somei of the animals to manifest signs oi imipatience, but when a melody was ,laiyedm the horses turnedl towards the players, pricked up their ears. and showed plainly the pleasure they- experienced. An orchestral concert was given before the elephants in Le .1ardin des Plantes.

AIDS TO COLOUR IN FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 30 January 1914

AIDS TO COLOUR IN FRUIT. Mr. G. P. Berry considers that al though eminent authorities stnte there is always much more iron in the soil than is necessary for the colouring of fruits, there are certain districts and certain soils where col ouring is very marked. At the Carlisle Fruit Congress he instanced the great variation of col ouring found in the East of Scot land, from Berwick to Kincardine. He always added four stones per acre of sulphate of iron when- preparing for fruit planting, and in nine plan tations under his care, in different counties, he found that in the sec tions fertilised with potash there was earlier maturity and finer colour than in the case of the phosphate and nitrogen plots. He advocated the application of l-ewt. of sulphate of potash per acre as a good average dressing to secure good colour in fruits.--"Gardener's Magazine."

Stars do not Really Twinkle. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 30 January 1914

Stars do not Really Twinkle. Professor F. W. Eldridge-Green has made claimns that, if nothing. else, spoil our old favourite poem of childhood days which begins : "'Twin kle, twinkle, little star," for the professor says the stars do not twinkle uat all. In fact, he says the twinkle is all in our eyes, and he means it literally. Of course, he doesn't say it in quite this manner. In fact, he is rather technical about it, but he is a noted savant and has inmae (IC any replor!s to learned British societies, so it! is to bIe ex pected. Ills claims are interesting, nevertheless. Trhe "twinkling" of tihe stars is not due to something in interstellar space, -nor to the earth's atmnosphere, says the Iprofessor, and to prove his point he riggeld up artificial stars in at dark ]l 'oratory, anld also adduced as evidlence tlihc well-known phenoni ent(in of "si''eiirg stlars'" whi'n youl are struck a blow ron the hedI. lie placed a small liiht in a ,iark roor.

The Czar's Narrow Escape ---- +----- Many tales are told of the Czar's narrow escapes from death, and these should be assimilated with as many grains of salt as individual tastes require. One morning when the Czar and Czarina were at breakfast (runs one such story) one of the Imperial ser vants brought in a few confiden tial conmunications that had just arrived by post. Among them was a large, sqnuare, thick, important looking envelope. It purported to comlle frolll the (;ov\ernor-tGen eral of Moscow. It bore the name of the G;overnor's oflice printed upon the front, and was duly sealed on the back with the Governor's heavy green official seal.
