Insect Destroyers [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

Insect Destroyers ^ "Interested" writes as follows:—"In Australia we have three kinds of ibis: one the sacred or wbite ibis which is practically identical with the sacred ibis of Egypt. The second is the even more valuable straw-necked ibis, which extends its labors to plains and pas tures, while the sacred ibis is rarely seen except on swampy lands. The Btraw-necked ibis is restricted to Aus tralia. It has an insatiable appetite for grasshoppers and other insects. This bird is a valuable asset to Australia, and yet people used to Bhoot thorn. Some gentlemen came upon a flock to contain 240,000 birds. They found that each ibis contained on the average 2000 young grasshoppers. Think of it ; 489,000,000 grasshoppers a day. Where are those birds now when needed to Btem a locust plague? Again let me say that the ibis is an insect destroyer, and-I as Egypt was subject to plaguna of grass hoppers it undoubtedly rendered a valuable service there as it does here. There is another reason tha...

The Outlet Creek Bridge. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE RAINBOW ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

The Outlet Creek Bridge. (to the editor of tiie ra1xbow argus) Sir,—It was not my intention to make any further reference to the above subject, but, as "Fair Play" states that a' bridge near Schilling's would serve three times as many ratepayers" as . the one at the "inlet" would, allow me to inform him that those ratepayers are already provided for by fords and the Pella bridge,, whilst the settlers up nortli have to come miles around to reach a crossing. I consider that "Fair Play" belies his noin de plume if he will not admit that the settlers near the "inlet" should have the advantage of the bridge, when the farmers in the "sunny south" have easy access to a crossing; besides the creek is now. dry at almost any point, whilst there is 15 to 20 f«et of water at and near the I •'inlet.

BARBAROUS MILLINERY PROTECT WILD NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

BARBAROUS MILLINERY PROTECT WILD NATURE. M. Edmond Perrier, Director of the Natural History Museum in Paris, who has just returned from the Berne International Conference for the Pro tection of Nature (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Daily News") states that a committee is to bo formed (with its seat at Basle) with the ob ject of framing severe Customs laws designed to prevent the destruction of certain animal species. In Africa, for instance, explained M. Perrier, there aro only 400,000 ele phants left, and they are being killed at the rate of 40,000 a year, whereas their rate of reproduction is slow. Whales are in a like case, and M. Perrier foresees very hard times for the Norwegian Trust, which combines 20 whale fishery companies, whose shareholders are small investors. Dealing with the osprey, which is found only in New Guinea, M. Perrier points out that the aigrette is obtained from the male bird, in whoso plumage occur annually at the laying season the 4 0 odd sprays wh...

COOL-HEADED WOMEN "BETTER DRIVERS THAN MEN." [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

CO(MEADED WOMEN "BETTER DRIVERS THAN MEN." The advent of the light motor-car has inspired hundreds of women to learn to drive, and almost every day on the Chelsea Embankment, which is free from heavy traffic, passers-by watch the beginning of the woman motorist's career. An instructor informed a represen tative of the "Daily Mail" on Novem ber 26 that the woman driver is either very good or hopeless. "I can tell at the first lesson," he said, "and it has been my experience that the good woman driver is superior to the male driver. Posesssing a delicate touch, she rarely bungles the gears, and when driving is coolness personified. It is, I think, a question of concentration, for a woman I taught recently told me, after driving through London with the skill and dash of a taxicab driver, that she suffered horribly from nerves all night. "The other day a young married woman, with absolutely no experience of motoring, drove on her second les son through Oxford street and Regent street, c...

The State and the Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

The State and the Farmer Most people realise in a general -way that to at least three States, Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia wheat growing is a vitally impartant matter. Com paratively few, however, have gone at all carefully into tho figures or know how much the cost of market ing affects, and must affect, the area under cultivation. According to the report of the Royal Commision which considered the question, the price of wheat' has during the laBt ten years varied from 2a 9d to 4§ 2d per bushel; when the latter price is paid the farmer can afford to pay for bags and for out of date methods of handling, but when the lower price rules the cost of. marketing under utterly out of date methods is ruinous. The report of the Royal Com mission says that the cost of bags is from sixpence to sevenponce, that the cost of handling them is a big item and that the usual method of weighing them is quite uhsalisfaetor}'. It"adds, -what all who.are interested in the subject '■know,...

HOME DEFENCE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 31 January 1914

HOME DEFENCE Lord Glenconner (Mr Asqulth's brother-in-law and former Liberal M.P. for Salisbury), addressing the Liverpool Liberal Federation yesterday (says the "Daily Mail" of December 2) said that despite attenuated numbers the Territorials cost £500,000 more than Lord Haldane assured us would be the maximum cost for the full establish ment of 312,000 men. That was not sound business, and the time had come for an end to be put to these wasteful leakages. What were we to do? There was an alternative measure between the Terri torial Force as now raised and conscrip tion, the latter of which was unneces sary and had never been advocated. The alternative was to compel the youth of all classes to take its turn in the Territoriai Force, but instead of the six months' training which Lord Hal dane proposed should be given after war broke out, there should be a pre liminary period of recruits' training. If the extension of the Territorials, both in numbers and training, could be satisfact...

Defendant, a man of medium height, apparently about 50,with grey hair and a sandy moustache, was well dressed. Mr Chapman, who appeared for him, said Pater was not his proper name.
