POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 16 January 1914

POULTRY NOTES. Hens which liavo been specially bred and selected for egg production will lay, in individual cases, 200 eggs in a year; | but instances of small Hocks making so { lugii an awrago record do not exist. J lie egg yield, of course, depends largely . on tue breed and strain, but even with ilie best laying breeds in th0 world, whilst tho professional egg fanner may succeed in producing 200 eggs, the aver age poultry keeper need not expect any thing like this return, for ho may keep , his poultry in tho very best way, anil 1 yet deem himself fortunato if his liens lay 1H0 eggs in a year. Having thus looked into this aspect of the cas-';, let us now considor why liens do not lay .so many eggs as they ought to lay: why they speilil long periods at a stretch without yielding any eggs, and why they are most es pecially disinclined to lay in winter. The primary object of the utility poul try keeper, who has a certain number <u* customers to supply, is to seeuro a fairl...

THE ART OF THE CONJUROR. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 16 January 1914

THE ART OF THE CONJUROR. Science has enabled modern conjur ors to do tricks that would fill the old (school of magicians -with wonder. Whorever applicable to the stage, the modern magician has adopted tile no vel features of inventions, and, com bining then with his sloight of-liand, has brought forth an entirely new style of mngic. A trick performed long ago consist ed of pouring from a sjnglo bottle sev eral different liquids into glasses set upon a table in full view of the audi ence. In the first glass was water, in tho next wine, in the next milk. The secret lay in tho construction of the bottle, which was composed of vari ous chambers. In each of tlicso was placcd a certain liquid, tho flow being controlled by valves in tho bottle's neck immediately under the finger of the ma gician. The great weakness of the trick lay in this—that tho magician did not permit tho bottle to go out of his hand to bo examined by the audience; but tho re cent discoveries of chemists enablo the mag...

VEST POCKET ESSAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 16 January 1914

VEST POSKET ES8AYS. By Georgo Fitch. The Atlantic Ocean is tlie second largest collection of wetness on th» globe. It is 20,000 miles long, 500>J miles 'wide, and so deep in spots that tho tallest man who ever lived would have five miles to go before reaching bottom, after getting in over bis head. Tho Atlantic Ocean reaches from tho elfeto ruins of antiquity on the cast to tho electric-lighted prospectuses of to-morrow on the west. It is cooled by the mountainous icebergs of the polar regions, and heated at tho equator by the everlasting sun, being thus plenti fully supplied with hot and cold water. It splashes restlessly upon the fever laden Jungles of Africa, caresses Eng land with its fogs, and is perfumed by tho orchid jungles of Brazil. The wiI&amp;lt;J African plunges into it off Liberia, tho Eskimo chases the polar bear through its su?f off Greenland, and at Narra gansetfc tho millionairess dives in front of a thousand cameras.

BUSH FIRE BRIGADE. HOW THE WATER CARTS ARE PROTECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 16 January 1914

LiOW THE WATER CARTS AltE PROTECTED. At the Mortlako Shiro Council meet ing ou Friday ,an unsatisfactory condi t.on of affairs was revealed in connec tion with the maintenance and protec tion of water carts of the Bush Fire Brigade. which are distributed over various parts of the Shire. In almost every case the carts are useless in case of fire, being sadly out of working or der. The onus of responsibility of keeping the earls in action in caso of fire appears to lie at the door of tl.o citizens of the respective" districts whoro the carts are located. J3ut, unfortu nately, tlio promises that, were nado when the carts were sent out by the Council, that they would be carefully attended to, havo not been fulfilled. And to day they require the expendi ture of several pounds to put them in a proper state of repair. It is a*pity tlio residents have been so unmindful of such as important duty, as the water carls ar© a very important asset in times of grass fires, and if used to advantage ...
