£10,000 for a Book. WORTH £50 A PAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
EI0,000 for a Book. WORTH £50 A PAGE. The late Mr. Pierpont Morgan has left among his vast collection of unique articles the only perfect copy in existence of Caxton's " Morte (('Arthur." It is one of the rarest books in the world, and fell to the late millionaire at the Hoe sale for the tremendous price of £8,560. That is to say, each page is worth about U50. Koine years ago, when the Ant werp Collection was sold at Sothe by's. a great American collector coveted the first folio Shakespeare which was included in the sale. His agent travelled 0,000 miles to secure the treasure, and returned to the States with the great book. But he had left behind him the record price, Ad,000. In 1812 this book fetched £121 10s. There is a story of the unearthing of a Caxton at Thoruock Hull, l.in eolnshirc. The butler wus entrusted with the work of weeding out super fluous books.

FIRST MANUSCRIPT. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
First Manuscript. Oh, unromantic age ! I must Hurl down to you a poet's curse, I view with loathing and disgust Your worship vile of mode and purse. Oh, that the days might come once more When all men simple tunics wore, And wealth and fashion could ignore t If some kind god to me shall grant (As Bacchus did to Midas once) A wish to gratify, I shan't Choose gold like that poor simple dunce.

Science Applied to Breamaking. PROF. WOOD EXPLAINS CAUSE OF HOLES IN LOAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
Science Applied to fSreadmaking. PKOF. WOOD EXPLAINS CAUSE OF HOLES IN LOAVES. Strength in wheat, which is its power to produce large and shapely loaves, affects its price. The Canadian "Fife," for instance, produces a tall loaf of 2,500 cubic centimetres, while the English "Ri vet" yielded a flat loaf of only 1,100 cubic centimetres. Scientific explanation of the differ ence had hitherto failed, said l'ro fessor T. D. Wood,, in n lecture at the Royal Institution, because size and shape needed to be considered separately. The shape depended on the constituent known as gluten, which, as extracted from "Fife" flour, was tough, stringy, and elas tic, like indiarubber, and would hold gas in bulbs, while "Rivet" gluten was sticky, with no power of co herence, and the bubbles broke, mak ing big holes in the bread, and, in stead of rising, pushing sideways. Yet there was often more gluten in the English than in the Cana dian flour, and it was a problem j why gluten should be elastic in' on...

Diet in Acute Rheumatism [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
Diet in Acute Rheumatism In acute rheumatism, a doctor re commends us to promote free eli mination by the kidneys, . skin, and intestines Therefore, give water very freely. During the stage of fever a strict milk diet, or bread and milk diet, is best. If patient cannot take milk, give broths, free from fat, flavoured- with vegetable extracts, and the various cereal gruels. Animal broths and meat extracts are to be avoided. For the thirst, which is one of the promi nent symptoms, bland or acid drinks may be given freely. Lemon ade, either plain or with the addi tion of a little bicarbonate of so dium, is especially to be re commended. Until convalescence is freely established, milk and farina ceous food should be gradual, and the patient should abstain from eating meats and sweets. In all cases of- rheumatism ulcoholic bever ages should be forbidden. Feeding should be somewhat more frequent than during health.

Secrets of Aerial Warfare. WHAT GERMANY IS DOING. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
Secrets of Aerial Warfare. WHAT GERMANY IS DOING. Dreadnoughts of the air will play as great a part ia deciding the issue of the next war as the Dreadnoughts of the sen ; and it is because they wish to impress .this fact on the mind of the man in the street that certain people have been so loud in their denunciation of the War Office for paying £18,000 for an airship three years ago, and after wards making no practical use of it. We may have a fleet of aero planes, they say, hut we must also compete with France and Germany in the matter of airships,- and, judging from the extraordinary ef forts which Germany is making at tiie present time to perfect her lieet of airships, it is obvious that she considers they are as essential as war-vessels .for the maintenance of her power. In the matter of airships, Germany at the present time easily stands first in the world. They possess twenty-five dirigibles of the rigid type, and by the end of the pre sent year will have thirty-two. And it is...

Seeing the Invisible. WEIRD SENSE OF SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
Seeing the invisible. WEIRD SENSE, OF SCIENCE. It will come as news to most peo ple that science has invented in struments that go two degiccs be yond the most powerful microscope In detecting small objects. The first of these is known as the ultra violet microscope. This takes ad vantage of the fact that a photo graphic plate can often see things that the human eye cannot, ami for the following reason : Things cannot reflect light, and consequently cannot be seen, that are smaller than the smallest wave length of light that falls on them. Violet light is the smallest that can be possibly seen with the human qye. I3ut there exists a much smaller wave length in the part of the spectrum not visible to the eye, called the ultra-violet light. This has the peculiar property of affect ing a photographic plate just as any other light would, so that wo got I a true picture of the. minute object j that is under examination. I Thus the deficiency of the eye is | made up fdr by n mechanical in...

The Fatherless Frog's Fate. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
The Fatherless Frog's Fate. This is a sad story—probably the j . saddest that ever echoed down the hull of a biological laboratory—and .this is saying a great deal, for every kind of scientific experiment is deeply set with just tragedies. Tt relates the death, premature and most lamented, of the only father less frog, probably, this ancient world has ever known. Tf there ever was another it was an accident, and 110 human being ever knew.about it. This was not an accident, but literally the fruit of long years of scientific research ; and that is why its death was so great a loss. Of all the deep problems of life, there has never been any which has' more deeply interested the human mind then the miracle of birth and the mystery of sex. 'But it is only within the last thirty or forty years that we have come to know anything very definite about them. First the microscope hud to reveal, then establish, that practically every ' living thing save the very lowest : is made up of tw'o elem...

Death From Snakeblto. ; Tho death under somewhat distressing circumstances, of a little five-year-old boy, the son of Mr Lever, of North Arm, Tweed Rivor, occurred last week end. It ■appears the little chap was bitten by a snake, but con siderable doubt was expressed by. those who saw tho punctures that ho had• been bitten at all. The father took the child to a neighbor—who had previously boon bitten by a snako and who kept a snake bite antidote in the house—who confirmed the belief that tho c hiId had not been bit ten, but as a supposed precau tion some of the antidote was applied. This was at 7 olclock p.m., and at 2.30 a.m. such alarming symptoms set in that Dr. Crosso was summoned. Tin medico immediately left and met the child and his father at Crys tal Creek, but the little fellow was oven then beyond aid, and although he was rendered every possible service in such a case he collapsed and died on reach ing the hospital. The parents are most painfully dislressosd at the sad occc...

TENTERFIELD SHOW. FAVORED WITH FAIR WEATHER. AND RESULTING SUCCESSFULLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
I WEATHER. RESULTING SUCCESSFULLY, If the function of a yearly show is faithfully to represent the assets of a. district—or such of then) as are out side the Savings and other Hanks—it would be scarcely logical to object to the display amongst them of a fair sample of that valuable and most li quid of assets—the district rainfall. - At any rate there has been 'such a dis play. .Moreover, a fairly prominent exhibit-it was, and one that at least made for encouragement if not for en tertainment. 'Die showers of .Satur day and .Sunday left Showground, streets, and atmosphere in excellent order for Tuesday, the first Show day, on which idea! weather prevailed, and the judges, if not a great many spectators, were able to testify to the excellence of thY&lt; district products, animak and vegetable.
