THE FARM. SULPHATE OF IRON AS A MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 30 January 1914
:THE FARM. SULPHATE OF IRON AS A MANURE. In view of the fact, as so far proved, that t0p-dressings of sul phate of irpn were found useful in checking the "Bush disease" to which cattle and sheep, running in certain districts are subject, it is interest ing to examine the opinions of well known agricultural authorities and note the wide diversity of opinions expressed ,on the use of this iron salt in practical farming. That iron sul phate vastly improves the colour of grass is well known to those who have used it for getting rid of weeds on lawns. When the sulphate is first applied to the lawn, it is inclined to turn the leaves of the grass black, but after a shower or two of rain the grass rapidly recovers, and the leaves take on a rich dark-green colour. All authorities admit that the chloro phyll or green colouring matter in plants cannot be formed without the presence of iron. For instance, A. D. Hall, Director of the Rothamstead Experiment Station, who is opposed to the use of s...
ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. A BAFFLED IMPOSTOR, OR, THE HEIR TO A DUKEDOM: A HUGE PERSONATION FRAUD. PART II. CHAPTER XVI. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 30 January 1914
ALL RIGHTS RESERYRD. A BAFFLED IMVPOSTOR! -- OR,-------- THFE HEIR TO A DUKEDOM: A HIUGE PERSONATION FRAUD. By S. W. Hopkins, Author of "On Four Brass Plates," etc., ete. PART 11. CHAPTER XVI. Marion Brooke lived no idle life. It must not be supposed that her mornings were always at her dispo sal, even for so worthy a cause as that in which we have seen her work ing side by side with good Dr. Tat ton. In the first place, Mrs. Brooke was far from well, and upon Mar ion's shoulders devolved most of the responsibility of the household. Most of the servants had remained when MLr. Brooke purchased the place from the tradesman, who had grown weary of residing in a neighbourhood where he was looked upon as an interloper. This was due to the animosity felt towards him by the d(luke, who visit ed upon his head all the wrath he felt towards his son for selling Marchmere to a stranger. And here it may be well to explain the rela tions existing between the Brookes and the haughty neighbour. Mar...
AFLOAT ! [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 30 January 1914
AFLOAT ! Hear the gentle, soothing cadence; hear the dipping of the oars; H-lear the lapping of the water on the side. See the moon lpetp out above you, and the brilliance that it pours Is reflected in the swiftly-running tide. There's a silishing as you row, And a rocking to and fro; ,lust a soothing, sweet suggested ot of a roll. And the ripples all impart 'Peace and quiet to the heart, And a feeling of conttmement to the soul. There's an eloquence unfathomed in the stillness of the night, You are fearful lest the silence one nmay break. F'or the mniurinur of the water speaks of rapture and delight, And you feel that you are sleep ing as you wake, There's a roll and a dip Of the tiny little ship; And the many who have tasted of its bliss Will proclaim with one accord That, of all the gods afford, There was never such a lullaby as .this. In stripping the walls of a house in Cowes, workmen found under eleven layers of paper the will of

MEN AND HORSES. (ly ELBEILT HUIBDARD.) An E]mbassy attache in Berliu sends Ine a circular that is be ing distrilbuted through the Ger man army. A free translation of this circular is as follows: "Men and Hlorses: In the army of the Fatherland horses have always played an important part. We owe a great tldebt to our horses, for rer vice both in times of war and peace. "And it is hoped that all good sol diers will see to it that the rights of our dumb brothers are respected. "Our horses are entitled to food. water, beddling, and shelter, just exactly as a trooper is. ''"But beyond this it must he re mnembered that a horse should not be insulted or distressed, either by cruel treatment or vehement lan guage. "To curse a horse is just as bad as to curse a man.

BASUTOLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 30 January 1914
BASUTOLAND. -----+- The greatest authority on the Ba sutos and Uasutouland -is in l.ondon. This is ?d. ,Edouard Jacottet, of the I'Paris Evangelical Missionary Society, who has spent the past 30 years in Basutoland, and is now on furlough. T.'he work of this society dates back to 1S38:, when Moshesh, the greatest of the Inasuito chiefs, in' ited missionaries of Paris to settle in his country, and from that day until his deathi provedl their firm friend. In conversation with a representative of The Daily Chronicle" M. Jacottet said that to-day obetween one-tifth anld one sixthl of the polpulation was Chris tian, the total population being about 403, Itt natives and 1,839 whites. It was Moshesh \hcl weld ed the various lRechuana tribes in to a nation. The progress of the LBasutos is extraordinary, not the least striking illustration of this being the genlinle n native literature which is developing. .M. Jacottet mentioned one young Basuto who has written a little book in the 1leiusto ...

Australian Aborigines. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 30 January 1914
Australian Aborigines.. The Australian Aborigines (says Bishop Frodsham in "The Cornhill Magazine) have considerable dra- matic instinct, and their dances are extremely interesting and var- ied. One favourite dance, probab- ly connected with a basic princi- ple of life, is wearisome beyond measure to the white eye, but this is not the case with corroborees il- lustrative of life in the bush. One such dance, I have seen, por- trayed a turtle hunt--in which the turtle lifting its head above the water seemed possessed with the &nbsp; spirit of elusive humour. In an- other favourite dance, the young men of the tribe mimicked a tribe dingoes quarrelling over the imagi- nary carcase of a kangaroo. This dance, I remember once ended in peals of laughter, as two of the naked players, fighting, like angry dogs over a real bone, rolled to- gether into the burning wood ashes of the camp fire. &nbsp; &nbsp; The last dramatic corioboree:i. saw was descriptive of- tlhree" C...

ihe Hoffman Picnic. ~.ND ANNUAL SP)RTS Th?e was a record company svail ing~hemnselves of the Hofman Brick Company's employee' annual picnic on board? the Bay steamer Hygeim on Sa turdsy. The weather, thouigh warm ashore and in and around Melbourne, was all that eould bewisihed for :8oat. and at Qusenselif, Wihib h was the des. tination, a cool sea-breeos msade.thinp -as pleasant as possible.. There was, as has been said a re. -ord number on board, and amongt. the distinguished visitors may be me-n: tioned Mr..Flrank Aste, M.P., and Mr. J. P. Jewell, M.L.A. An apology was received from the Mayor (Cr Mill ward), owing to his being away from Brunswick. Ogilvy's Band furnished the musical programme on the voyage, at Queenseliff, and also at the sports on MdAiday-tt-Brlnsw-ick Park. There was a most commendable absence of speech-making, which was much ap preciated, as' the vast majority on these occasions come to enjoy them selves and not to listen to oratory,. however eloquent and convi...
Navigating Space. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 6 February 1914
.Navigating Spa,ce. (By GARRETT P. SERVISS.) The statement has recently aplpeir ed in print that, owing to the dis covery by Sir Williani Ramnsay of a gas sixteen times lighter than hy drogen, it may become possible to sendl a balloon from the earth to the moon on to other planets. If this could bIe done it would he the most wonderful thing ever accomplished by.man. A voyage to the moon would be an experience of indescribablle novelt.l and infinitely imore marvellous than ('olumbus's first crossing of the Atlantic. lBut t-he reasoning on which the statement is based is entirely erro neous, and the fact that it is cre dited to a "scientist" only shows how igno.,rant the majority even of edullcated people are of the real dhill culties to be overcome before a voyage in open space can be un dertaken. This seems a good occasion for showing how at trip to the moon could actually be made-proxvided that we had the means. Suppose that this strange gas of unexampled lightness were pro lduced ...
