PEACH LEAF CURL. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916

PEACH LEAF CURL. This pest is the greatest, of all the enemies of the peacli tree, says "Po mona," in the "Tasmanian Courier." It is most insidious in its action, and hurts so deeply that the grower is well justified in taking stringent mea sures to cope with it. The fungus that gives rise to the trouble passes its . winter stage in the crevices and un der the bud scales on the trees, and for this reason much care should be exercised in pruning, all unnecessary wood and shoots being carefully re moved and burnt, dead growths espe cially. The trees should be so pruned as to allow the maximum of sunlight to reach all parts of the tree freeing the concealed spores. These now be gin the new season's operations, and are ready at the time of the appear ance of the young, tender leaves to scatter broadcast, by the bursting ot' their spore cases, by the reason of their settling on the leaves and in serting deeply 111 the tissues mycelial threads that destroy the organisa tions that supply l...

About Our Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916

About Our Soldiers. On the occasion of tlie initial perform ance of the "Magpies" at Bright in August last, Mrs H. P. Richards, who was present, took home with her a oon C'Tt programme as a memento of the occasion. A day or t wo afterwards when writing to her brother Lieutenant Alex. Walluce, in France, Mrs Richards en closed the programme with an explana tion who the various performers were. Last wec-k she was agreeably surprised to receive it back again, and in explaining why it was returned Lieutenant Wallace said he had taken the programme with him to within 50 yards of the German trenches, and he thought, tor that reason it would be prized, which it undoubtedly is. Private F. P. Cowley, "in a very in teresting letter to his sister, Miss Cowley, of Wandiligong, inter alia says :-" In our trip across we were warned of sub marines, so our company was put on permanent guard day and night. We used to stand out on deck and watch for submarines. My shift was from two to four in the mo...

WHO INVENTED PRINTING? [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916

WHO INVENTED PRINTING Those who believe printing to have been invented in Europe during the fifteenth century may have been sur prised to read of Cambridge Univer sity having acquired "the works of the Chinese philosopher, Liu Tsnng Yuan, printed in 1167." CInna has been credited with anticipating not a few modern inventions, but her claim to have discovered the art of printing before its first adoption in Europe is beyond dispute. An edition of most of the Chinese classics was printed by means of wood blocks in 922 A.D., and movable type is said to have been devised by a blacksmith, Pi Shing, in the eleventh century. "That's a fine dog you have. Do you want to sell him?" "I'll sell him for £2." "Is he intelligent?" "Intelligent! Why, that dog knows as much as 1 do." ? "You don't say so?. Well,;.I'll give you half-a-crow-n for him." | A great many : people who" have wheels are not cyclists. - Some of them push bassinettes.

PIANO TYPEWRITER NOW. By Playing a Piece Through Many Copies Can Be Made. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916

PIANO TYPEWRITER NOW. By Playing a Piece Through Many Copies Can Be Made. The London "Daily Express'' says that Herman Darewski will shortly introduce to England the "most won derful invention in the world of musi cal mechanics since the coming of the automatic piano player." It is a piano typewriter, reproducing in ordinary musical notation whatever the per former plays. A pianist can make a copy of any piece of music by merely playing it through. By the insertion of carbon papers half a dozen copies may be made in one operation, as with an ordinary typewriter. The inventor is an Italian. The speed of a carrier pigeon, in calm weather, is 1200 yards a minute. With a brisk wind prevailing, and blowing in the direction of its flight, a pigeon has been known to make 1900 yards a minute. Sharks grow a new row of teeth for every year of their age until (Jiey reach maturity. The jaws of a full grown specimen can be extended about 1G ins.

BOY-HERO OF THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916

BOY-HERO OF THE WAR. ' When, on August 28, 1914, Admiral Beatty led his fleet against the Ger man battle-cruisers off Heligoland, there was one lad-1st class boy, .T. F. Rogers-aged 16%, on the "Tiger," who performed a humble task, yet a duty calling. for the highest courage, for which he was mentioned in dis patches and received the Distinguish ed Service medal. In a modern sea fight every man is kept under armor all the time. One of the glasses in the big gun turret had become fouled ?with smoke and our gunners were hampered by it, so someone had to be found who would see that the handi cap was removed. Rogers volunteer ed to sit out in an exposed position on the top of a turret, which, since it formed part of the main battery of the ship, must be ti certain mark for the enemy's gunners. He clambered on to the turret with the ship going at her fastest, and the enemy's fire con centrated upon her, and cleaned the glasses. The gun's crew, delighted at rediscovering the enemy and in ...

Barmaids to go. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916

Barmaids to go. By 30 votes to 12 the Legislative As sembly decided on Thursday of last week to add to the Licensing Bill a new clause proposed by Mr D. Smith, pro Tiding that, after the passing of the Act Bo barmaids other than those now en gaged in the trade shall be employed. Barmaids now employed are to be regis tered. It is fitting that the reform should come from middle-aged gentlemen, who ate willing to abandon all their pleasures jU6t at the time when their pleasures are abandoning them. The next generation unless, as is probable, it cultivates a few Weaknesses of its own-will wonder tow the early twentieth-century society ex isted, Burrounded as it was by so many evils. Looking back in after years People may say of 1916 :-"They had a large deficit, but they abolished barmaids that year.'' The last barmaid will no doubt write her reminiscences, and leave posterity a picture of the dreadful past. It has been said that barmaids have been 'he cause of domestic dissension. The l...

Y.M.C.A. Works a Change. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916

Y.M.C.A. Works a Change. "I want to say one brief word about the Y.M.C.A.," remarked Viscount French recently in London, while per forming the opening ceremony at a new association lounge. "I think it is J something like 35 years ago that the Y.M.C.A. commenced its splendid work, and I think the change that has come over the tone of the personnel of the army in that time has been something little short of miraculous. It was on the blood-stained fields of battle that the troops showed what different men they were. This war has needed more in the way of nerve and courage from our men than any war that has ever happened in the history of the world. One cannot help thinking that, although the old soldiers did splendidly, they were never so highly tried. It is certain that they never surpassed the splen did courage which has been shown by our present army, and one cannot help thinking that it is due to the work of such institutions ns the Y.M.C.A." ~ Private T. II. Parker, writing from a...
