German operators occupied the telegraph oltiee, and it seemed im possible to keep in touch with the French commander outside; but Ju liette had taken a telegraph appa ratus up to her bedroom, and con nected it to the vires outside her : window.

Suspected and watched, shc\ found herself obliged to remove her appa ratus to a neighbour's house, and finally to ceaso telegraphing alto gether-; the servant, who had a Prussian sweetheart, threatening to denounce her.

On October 1JJ, 1815, Napoleon Itonapurle (yesterday arbiter of Europe, now a enptivo "general," condemned to lifelong exile)-nrrlved nt the lonely island of St. Helena. ? The strange stories told of the "Corsicnn Ogro" had led some simple folk to imagine him as something more fiendish than hu man, and when ho rode up to Jlricrs Cottage, on his way into tho Interior of the island, two pretty girls who had been watching tho cavalcade beat a precipitate re treat. Their father checked their foolish fears, and fourteen-year-old Hetsy italcomho saw a pale, but still dignified, man descend from his horse and enter the garden. Finding the girl knew some French, Napoleon amused' himself by questioning her, and in ten minutes Hetsy and the "ogre" were the best of friends.

Maclcod set sail for tho island -homo- of tho Macdonalds with such :n number of followers that any re sistance by the inhabitants on the lonely Isle of Kgg would have been folly. and so thought Macdonald when ho saw* his hereditary foe ap proaching the shore. Calling his people together, ho gave orders lhat .they should conceal themselves in a cava near the seashore, which, al though largo enough to hold them all. had but a. narrow opening, con cealed by "a cascade of water fall ing from the cliff above. Suspecting a ruse, ns they could not see any inhabitants, the Mac-; loods searched the island thorough ly. but without success, and at last concluding that the Macdonalds had left their homes, t...

A VALUABLE FIND. A tower of gold was discovered by/ some workmen on October 19, 1701, in the midst of a thick copsc in the neighbourhood of a small village near Hamburg.

It was mndo of virgin gold, and wns valued at so large a sum that no person could purchase it. The owner of the land claimed it ; but (Government took possession of it without any payment, though eventually they granted the land lord 23,000 florins for it, and then melted it down and convert ed it into current coin. It had evidontly been erected oir a clear space of -ground, and com memorated the martyrdom . of a famous saint.

FIGHTING FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 February 1914
FIGHTING FISH. At Singapore it is the custom to | stock garden ponds with queer fishes -many of them of the fighting va riety so dear to the heart ot Orien tals. These fish are BO combntive that it is only necessarj to place two of j them near each other and irritate t them a little to bring on a lively ' combat. They charge each other, : with (Ins erect, at the satnc time changing colour in their excitement from the dullest ot grey greens to brilliant rods and blues. Indeed, con-| finement in close quarters , is not' needed to arouse their combative1 propensities. Place two glass jars close together, witlv one of these fighting fish in each, and they will at once swim round anrd endeavour to charge each other through the inter I*OBed glass. Even a single fish, see ing himself reflected in a mirror, will dart at his own image, and, irrita ted all the more by his failure to reach his supposed enemy, will as sume brilliant hues ; seeing his re flected antagonist do the same, he will r...

RENOVATING PASPALUM. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 February 1914
RENOVATING PASPALUM. As illustrating the wonderful rr.cu pcrativo powers of paspalum, a pad dock which had been in paspalum for thirteen or fourteen years was ploughed up. This was necessitated by constant cutting for seed and heavj grazing having weakened the sward. The experience in question was that of a settler in the Cornmbn district, New South Wales Somr time ago a paddock of twelve acres was ploughed up with the object of utilising it for the growing of fodder crops for the dairy herd. Being dry at the time the work was heavy, and the ploughing necessarily shallow. About the middle of December maize was sown. Dry conditions continuing produced indifferent germination. But with the storms of January the pas palum made a move, the young growth showing up between the sods as if it had been planted. The maize was about 4 to 5 feet high, but the paddock was one waving field of pas palum fonce high, and in full seed. The response was simply wonderful. An interesting feature of the ...
THE FARM. THE ABUSE OF ARTIFICIAL MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 February 1914
THE FARM ? THE ABUSE OP ARTIFICIAL MANURE. In a lccturo recently delivered be fore the Mayfiold Farmers' Clnbr Mr. G. A. Cowie, M.A., B.Sc., in describ ing certain abuses of artificial fertili sers, pointed out as one of tho most flagrant the far too common system of one-sided or incomplete manuring. Many farmers wero prone to use only ono sort of manure and neglect altogether the other fertilising in gredients which may be as important or even more important, for the-crop or soil in question. As practical instances of the above error, the lecturer quoted tho fre quent use alone of nitrate of soda, which at first might proluce a luxu riant growth, but will afterwards refuse to perform its proper function owing to the exhaustion of the natu ral phiosphates and potash in thn soil. The withholding of these essen tial constituents from tho manuring often explains the unsatisfactory re sults obtained from ' nitrate of soda, which, in consequence, is described as a "scourge" and "stimulan...
