AUSTRALIA TO-DAY. THE STORY OF PROGRESS. A RICH AND EMPTY LAND. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914
tt.r> is >' _ ^ AUSTRALIA TO-DAY. -j THE STORY OF PROGRESS, A RICH AND EMPTY LAND. BY HARRY 3. CULLETT. It is frequently remarked that, the greatest development of the twen tieth century id to be the reawaken ing of the great Asiatic peoples, and it js forecasted by pessimistic West erners that the millions of tho East may, 100 years hence, be the domin ant influence in the -world. But those who take this view are surely short-sighted. It is youth that wins and a little study must convince that 100 years henco there should be no more ambitious or more powerful nations in the world than those which are now so rapidly building up in the wide, new, fertile, and, as yet, almost 'empty regions of the earth. We have seen- in a single century what has been done in the United States ; we hav« seen the American people increase in 100 years from some seven or eight million to near ly100,000,000. And just as certain is it that in the next 100 years this wonderful performance will be equa...

"LUCKY" COINS SENT TO CRICKETERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914
"LUCKY" COINS SENT TO CRICKETERS. Fortuuate is the captain of a county cricket club, who has never received a " lucky " coin. For he is as "good at tossing" as was the man who owned-and used- a two headed halfpenny, or the Hon. F.S. Jackson when he captained many teams against the Australians. . On six successive occasions he won the toss against Mr. Darling. On the seventh, at Scarborough, he found the famous Australian in his tent, stripped to the waist, encircle I by the Union Jack, and with his arms folded. ".Now," said he, "we will have a proper tossing, and the one who gets on the top wins the toss." " All right," said Mr. Jackson. Here, Georgie "- hailing a burly member of his team-"you come and toss this time." "Very well, then," returned Mr. Darling, hastily; "we will toss in the old-fashioned way !" Mr. W. _G. Grace has had several spells of " bad luck " in. tossing, and has in consequence been presented with ''lucky" coins innumerable. Lord Hawke, when he _captured Yorksh...

TOO MUCH FAVOURITISM. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914
TOO MUCH FAVOURITISM: It is not always good to bo the pet o£ the ladies. This is the lesson that was learnt by little Archie, aged 9, and with a lace frill round his neck, at a children's picnic. Little Archie had long "golden curls, and a velvet suit, and the ladies just loved him. Tea-time came, and they all besieged him. Cakes they gave him, and ices, and wafers; and-choco lates, and buns, and lemonade. They were most pressing, and Archie "liked it. :V A little later, however, Archie went into a quiet corner to think, ami there, with one hand on his head, and one on his- sash,' a dainty lady found him. * "Win, Archie, pet," she exclaimed, "what's the matter ? Haven't you pot all you want ?" "Yes, I've srot. all I want,,-please," murmured Archie, ever polite, "but, please, I don't want all I've got." As I key Moses was walking across tlie jfolf links lie suddenly received a terrific bit uii the nose from a hard- j driven bull. | Sm-.5rtir,ir with rage and pain, be j hurried across...

INDIAN SNAKE-CHARP/IERS AT WORK. * Tliu main contention of the snake charmer, whether he be Indian or Ked Indian, in that he is absolutely im- j mune from tlu' bit es of the mott poiB-j on.ius siipJu'l;, and tho mariner in which he aliows himseli to be bitten by a cobra or adder never fails to in)j&lt;rrs-, not. only the native, but al so the white man unacquainted with the t,ric.Ks of these humoug's. . For humbugs they really are, although it must be confessed that they pro vide a very interesting arid fascina ting entertainment. . ' j As a matter of fact,--snake-charmers ' almost without excoptioh, play either j with snakes whose fangs and poison ous glands have been remov.ed, or use | non-poisonous reptiles which they I pass oil as dangerous varieties.

Ways of Creating Life. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914
Ways of Creating Life, j According to Dr. Charlton Bas tian, tlio creation of life from noil living matter is an assured fact. "?Living organisms can bo obtain ed almost at will," says Dr. Bas tian, in liis worki on "The Origin of Life," from solutions which have been heated in hermetically sealed vessels - to r temperature very much higher than that which is known to be their thermal death point. This leaves no further room for doubt upon' the much-disputed point whether or not non-living matter is still capable of coming' into exist j ence. i Remarkable as it may seem, it | does not require any large amount | of scientific knowledge, or any cost j'ly laboratory equipment to create [ life artificially'.' According to Dr. I Bastian the .miracle can be per i formed with a little patience in your own home. Here is how it is done : . . Add. to one fluid ounce of distilled water eight drops of liquor ferri p emit ratis and three drops of so dium^ silicate.' Bastian's Simple Apparatus Fp...
A Tomato Hint. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914
--- " When growing toruat,oe.s out of doors an ordinary farm hurdle is one of tho best means of supporting them. The plants should be plant ed 2 feet apart- r>y Vying the shoots from time to timo to the bars thoy ore spread out and not crowded, as when a single stake is used. Poring the summer tho whole hurdle will ho covered with foliage. When tying, use soft tu o-ply sti ing; bass or raflia is not, strong enough to carry tho weight of the fruit. Tio loosely, as the 3terns swell to a good thickness. All shoots below the fruits must bo diligently romoved as soon as they appear. .Do not cut away leaves unless it may bo hero mid there one that quite covers a bunch of fruit. Removing foliago from any plant only weakens it. Do not givo too much water un- ! less the ground is very dry. Put a j mulch round the roots after the fruit is set, and water in the morn ing' or evening when necossary.
A SHREWP SEXTON. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914
A -SHREWP SEXTON. Among tho tourists who travel through-Franco, a considerable num ber always visit tlie 'Cathedral at lilieims, a magnificent example of Gothic architect.ure. In the . tower there is an enormous clock, ami it is the sexton's business to wind it every day-a very tiring job, as the weights are naturally extremely heavy. The sexton, however, is a very shrewd fellow. Whenever lie shows the trippers this wonderful pieco of mechanism, he remarks : "Ladies and gentlemen, if you do not believe me regarding the heaviness of the clock weights, try for yourselves." Each of the trippers immediately gives a turn or two to the wheel, and as there are some two hun dred visitor* a day, the trippers un consciously and eagerly wind the clock fur him, and in addition (se.ys Maurice Dekobra in the "On looker") give him an extra lip for being allowed to do his work !

Raising himself slightly on his el bow, bi5 ad-dressed biro in clear firm tones : " Fut everyone out of the rooru, Thompson. I want, to speak with you alone." The nurse instantly quitted the a Partment. A heavy frown darkened the young man's face ; lie made no attempt to move. The lawyer cros sed over to where he stood b> the oriel window.

The Clergyman Began It. The following story is iold of a Yorkshire parish. A young clergy man was taking holiday duty in n moorland - district, where the church goers were largely made up of far mers and shepherds. The latter were in the habit of bringing their dogs with them to church, and, li -e their masters, they listened quiet ly during the sermon. The new cl rg'iuu!,. ;i&lt; his first service, started ii-.t":.ir,g, which the people considered Komtsh. and, unused to sticl; an innoce.t ier., one of the dogs commenced to gowl.

"Ta'-e that dog out com manded the clergyman. "I told you before to have it removed." One of tiie shepherds rose from his seat and dragged the animal out side. Presently shuttling feet wero heard coming up tho aisle, and the shepherd resumed his seat ; but, turning to the clergyman, he re marked, ...
Horses and Sparrows Work Us Mischief. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 20 February 1914
Horses and Sparrows Work Us Mischief. 4 Recent scientific discoveries are gradually making us a ware of the fact that the horse, long consider ed one of man's most useful friends, is. in many ways one jof Lho worst enemies. Lockjaw &lt; is only one of the deadly perils for which ; the horse is directly responsible. . It is now known that the germ of lockjaw, or "tetaniis," as science terms it,: is a 'Coniinon . inhabitant of the intestinal canal. of "the equine beast. When, as often lmp peus, gardens are fertilised with horse manure, their soil becomes rich in tetanus microbes. It is very dangerous for children to run about barefooted in the streets, he cause, if they happen to cut ??their feet, lockjaw germs are liable to in fect the wounds. It is estimated that 95 per- cent, of all the houseflies in cities are bred in stables where horses are kept-horse manure being preferred by the insects to all othor suiv stances as incubating material for their eggs.
