SOME LETTER BOXES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
SOME LETTER BOXES. The modern French letter-box is fashioned after a plant, and the top resembles a bud. The body is sur rounded by floral wreaths or fes toons, and the base is formed by larce leaves.— The boxes are placed against buildings and have a very pretty effect. In Brussels the Gov ernment keeps pace- with the needs of the. people, and has attached postal-boxes, to the rear ends of cars in the city. This aids and hast ens the delivery, of letters and tele grams, as most of these cars pass the post-offices, where the boxes are emptied; This street-car letter box, in fact, practically' takes the ' place of the 'pneumatic tube' pos Ltal system for which ^ London and [?Berlin have become famous. The 'Russian post-box is an oldfashion ed, awkward-looking box. It looks something .like' a peasant hut.. The roof is lilted up,- and letters taken out from the top. The postman handles the -letters as freely as the sorters themselves; it really does not matter much, for the Govern ment...
HOW A V.C. WAS WON. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
HOW A V.C. WAS WON. ? 1 Every boy and girl admires cour age. In England when a soldier or sailor performs a very brave deed in . time of war the King of England gives him a beautiful medal in token of his bravery. This, you may re member, is called the Victoria Cross, and is only given to a man who has risked his life in some par ticularly courageous way. Here is a story of a brave deed committed by a sailor, for which he gained the coveted medal. A British warship one day attacked a large fort in Egypt which had many large guns. While the battle was going on a sailor on board the ship cried out in terror, for a large shell from the fort had fallen on the deck right am ong the sailors. Quickly a fellow sailor snatched a pail of water stand ing near and threw it upon the dead ly shell. If he had not done so ev ery man near .it would have been killed, and England would have lost many brave sons. Don't you think he well deserved the cross which was conferred on him? ? ' I
ARTHUR'S DISOBEDIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
ARTHUR'S DISOBEDIENCE. 'Now you may go out in the , yard,' said Arthur's mamma, as she . finished dressing him. 'But re member, if you don't keep clean I shall leave you at home.' Arthur went out and sat on the front doorstep. He decided he - would stay right there till mamma , came out, because he didn't want to run the risk of getting dirty and losing his trip to the park.' The. three-year-old Blake twins, who lived next door, were playing down at the brook, which ran be tween the two places. Arthur would have liked to go down and play wjlth them, but playing in the * brook Slid keeping clean he: knew was impossible. A ^few minutes : more, passed by, which seemed to him such very, very long, minutes, ' before Something very- serious hap pened at the brook. Arthur heard a scream, and looking up, saw that one of the twins had fallen in. He ran down, v waded in the brook, and pulled the child out. Then he sent the twins home and started for the house. His mother .was just coming out....
AN ISLE OF MAN TALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
AN ISLE OF MAN TALE. Long ago, before anybody went there for a holiday, some men once began to quarrel about the Isle of Man. Some of them said it be longed to England, and ethers said it belonged to Ireland. Ai last one - of the men said, 'Let us bring some snakes to the isle, and then we shall know. For if they live, the isle must belong to England. If they die, the isle must belong to Ire land.' You will remember, of course, that St. Patrick killed all the snakes ifi Ireland, so if the Isle of Man 'really belonged to Ireland, the snakes that the men were going to take there would soon die, for good St. Patrick said that there would never be any more snakes in Ire land. Well, the men got some snakes, and they carried them to the Isle of Man, and there they, kept them to see what would happen. And af ter they had watched them for ever so long they saw that, instead of the snakes a 11 dying, they got bigger and bigger, and fatter and fatter! Indeed, it seemed as if the air of the Is...
WET AND DRY SEASONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
WET AND DRY SEASONS. At the Equator in Africa there are only two seasons — the wet and the dry. The former is the sum mer season, and' lasts eight months. The thermometer averages from nodeg. to i25deg. Fahr. The other' four months are the cold or dry season, and the thermometer rarely goes below 7odeg. Fahr. During the rains the natives live in houses made principally of bamboo and roofed with leaves, but as soon as the rains stop, which is some time around June rst, they desert their towns and set out for the for ests and jungles. The few house hold furnishings are transported on the heads of the women and chil: dren.
IRON IN ANTIQUITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
IRON IN ANTIQUITY. Interesting 'in the light of recent metallurgical practice is a part of an iron tool found in the Great Py ramid, because it contains not only nickel, but also combined carbon, showing that it is not of meteoric origin. Under a sphinx at Karnak an iron sickle was found. At Delhi there still exists an iron pillar, 50ft. high and 16in. in diameter, made of fifty-pound blooms welded together. This pillar, it is suggested, may be regarded as the doyen among pro ducts of the heavy iron industry. The use of iron and steel in China has been traced to the year 2357 B.C.
THE OIL SPOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
THE OIL SPOT. There is remarkable place in the Gulf of Mexico known as the 'oil- spot.' It extends about two miles along the shore, and perhaps three quarters of a mile seaward. In a storm its appearance is very won derful. All round are angry, boil ing waters, tossing tL^ ':k -...i high in the air, while r/ithin ..is enclosure is a perfect calm. In fine weather there is nothing to distinguish the place, but in a gale the waves be come thick and of a reddish hue. Mud taken from the spot has all the cleansing qualities of soap, and is used to scrub the decks of vessels. Scientists are puzzled to know what makes the 'oil-spot.'
Facts and Fancies. FOREIGN LOTTERIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
Facts and Fancies. FOREIGN LOTTERIES. Lottery tickets in Spain are ped dled everywhere. In the street the small boys selling newspapers offer lottery tickets if one does not care to read. In the Spanish, clubs and cafes there is great excitement after the report of the winning numbers is issued. Small boys run about the streets selling these reports in the same -way they would se!! news papers'. With the German lottery things are conducted more quietly. The tickets for the Government lotteries are sold in regular licensed stores, which do no other business.
THE NECESSITY OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
THE NECESSITY OF WATER. Pure water is as essential to the well-being of fowls and other live stock as it is to man, and the fact must never be overlooked. In a pure state it is as necessary as air ; while if impure it poisons the entire sys tem, and may occasion many dis eases easily prevented by adequate care. It should never be allowed to stand near or to accumulate decayed vegetable or animal matter, since water in contact with decomposing matter soon becomes turbid and un dergoes putrefaction. The vitality and productive powers of fowls are rapidly affected by the water they drink, and the egg particularly, which contains in the yolk 79 and in the white 53 per cent, of water, is greatly dependent in quality upon the nature of its largest constituent. Vessels used in watering stock should be cleaned every time they are filled, and rain-water should not be acces sible for drinking purposes, since it contains all the impurities of the at mosphere. On the other' hand, a sufficient s...

THE CHICK IN THE EGG. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
THE CHICK IN THE EGG. In order to test eggs to ascertain whether they contain live chickens or not, they must be taken into a dark room, when by holding the egg. be tween the eye and the bright light of a lamp or candle, it is easy enough to discover whether it is fer tile or not. If the egg looks perfect ly clear it is unfertile, and had bet ter be put aside as food for the chickens when they hatch. The live chick shows through the shell as a dark object, something like a spider with' iegs extended, and floats con tinually to the top as the egg is turned in the hand. If the egg con tains only a small dark spot it shows that the germ is dead, and should be thrown out immediately. Duck eggs and white-shelled hens' eggs may be successfully tested after four or live days' incubation, but dark-shelled and speckled eggs cannot be tested until they have been hatching for seven or eight days. The principal advantage derived from testing eggs is that the air is kept pure by the removal of a...
FOR THE AMBITIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
FOR THE AMBITIOUS. It is often found that people who keep nr. more than twenty or thirty fowls do better with them than the large proprietors, owing to the rea son that poultry is always more pro ductive iu smali than in large flocks. The reason for this is that even where a large flock of fowls is pro vided wiLh a house ample for all re quirements, they are more likely to crowd each other on the best perches than a smaller number would be. Moreover, hens never roam 'beyond a certain distance iu search of insect food, and a large flock soon exhausts it. Consequently, if a couple of hundred fowls are desired to yield proportionate profits, they should be kept in small colonies at a consider able distance apart, especially in summer, when they can be provided with portable wooden houses in the open lields. More or less crowding is unavoidable in winter, when great er care and shelter are necessary, but iu warm weather the more space and freedom fowls have the better, and only iu this ...
GOOD WHITEWASH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
GOOD WHITEWASH. A good and. easily applied white wash for the walls of poultry-houses can be made as follows : — Take half a bushel of unslacked lime, one peck of salt well dissolved in warm water, 3lb. of ground nee boiled to a thin paste, stirred into the mixture when boiling hot, \\h. of powdered Span ish whiting, lib. glue previously dis solved over a slow fire. Five gallons of bob water complete the mixture. Stir well and let it stand for a few days before using. It should be put on while hot. The salt and the lime both possess disinfecting qualities, and the glue gives a lasting finish and prevents the whitewash from rubbing off.

THE CHOICE OF SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
THE CHOICE OF SOIL. Dry, warm soils are found to be beat suited for the production of table poultry, and as a general rule yellow-legged fowls thrive better on heavy soils than do the white-legged varieties, which prefer the lighter and chalky soils. Table birds, in deed, sometimes take a fortnight or longer, to mature upon a cold, heavy soil, than they would otherwise, which iSfA^serious consideration to the farmer. It is, however, gener ally, necessary for him to take things as he finds them, and supposing j there is only one piece of ground at his; disposal, and that not a large one, the grass run will be found a mistake, though it undoubtedly has its advantages. The supply of in sect life soon becomes exhausted, .and the- grass is eaten in a soiled state by the birds, while cleansing ! ig. almost impossible. A ran of beaten earth, or of ashes or crushed sheila, is preferable. It can eaiily. be drained and cleansed, and the surface renewed at intervals. The operation should be pe...

ABOUT BONE MEAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 13 December 1910
ABOUT BONE MEAL. - ~ Great care must be taken over bonemeal for poultry, as few foods are more impure, and as such bone has been chemically treated and lost its nutriment, it is worse than use less. Pure bonemeal should contain 50 per cent, of phosphates, and the .inclusion of gristle and dried flesh adds greatly to its efficacy as food. It is best to buy bones fresh from ► the butcher, taking care to obtain ?' marrow bones, and, in spite of the tediousness of the process, to grind them at home.
