Cetacea are Disappearing. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 February 1914
Cetacea are Disappearing. Like the elephant of the Bllacl Continent, which vill be totally ex terminatedt by ivory hunters in seven or eight years time, the whole of the large cetacea li\ving in the sea off the cat coast, 0f Africa will, if care is not taken, certainly disaplpear in a still shorter time, and that to the great dletri mnent of the public fortune. Such is the cry of alarm uttered by M. Perrier, Director of the Paris Na tural History Museum. Several years ago M. Gru\vel, dlur ing his explorations on the African coast, had remarked the prodigious abundance of largeo cetacea : Nar whals, doldhins, porpoises, and and spermaceti ithales. He,,had called the attention of the Government and of French industry to these enormous riches, but the matter was not taken up, and no attention was given to his reports on this interesting qulestion. And to-dlayi more than thirty companies are en gaged in the fishing of the large African rctc area.. To give on idea of the eunormous lqunan...

Guarding Royal Valuables. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 February 1914
Guarding Royal Valuables. Their Majesties have a great sense of their responsibility in regard to the valuables at the tvarious iRoyal 'alaces, and from time to time ha\e them recatalogued and re vaiiued. Those at uc'kingham iPa lace \were' recently assessed and ide dlared to be worth three and a half millions sterling. It is said that there is scarcely- an object of art in the whole colee-! lion with which I he Queen is not familiar. It ,ccurred to those ro sponisible for guarding the safety of the Palace to introduce extra pre caution, and it. would now be imn possihle for the cleverest hurglar in Europe to make an entrance without attracting attention. A new form of electric alarm has been added to doors and win dows and connected with a huge electric bell which sounds in one of the central halls when the necessary in 'ication is given. The police gl:ardl around the pdalace has also been increased,

CHAPTER XIX.--(Continued.) One thin-g was certain-Mildred Mloore would have nothing more toe do with him. He' was so excited and alarmed over his own condition that he did.not revert to the strangefact that, though Gerald had been sent away from New York to take him away from the pernicious influence of Mildred Moore, Mildred Moore claim' ed that she did not know Gerald Lovering. Had he thought of this in his excited state of mind, undoubted ly he would have scented danger, for he would have suspected that Gerald Lovering and Mildred Moore were still keeping up their intimacy, and, if such was the case, it would, of course, be to her interest to restore Gerald to his own, and unseat Barnes. But, had he reflected further, there was nothing to prevent Gerald Lovering came f6rward and claim ing his inher...
The Windsor Magazine. A NOTABLE NEW YEAR NUMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 February 1914
The Windsor Magazine. A NOTABLE NEWf YEAR NUMBER. A very brilliant new year number is provied in the February issue of the \Vizndsor Magazine,' which shows no railing off from the high achievement ,f the preceding Christmas number in .iLuer variety or importance. Among ,ho fiction by famous novelists, for in stance, is to be found a largo second instalment of Sir H. Rider Haggard's r:ascinating new romance from the car e.r of his famous hero, Allan Quarter main, 'The Holy Flower,' in which the iuterest of this strange adventure mounts steadily higher, and shows ith. this is to be one of the most im ,portant of its distinguished autchor's many works. Then there is the second complelte episode in Halliwell Sut cliffe's clharinng new series, 'The White Horses,' in which the author's cinaracteristic style gives charm to a period of English history somewhat earlier thain those wihich he has pre -iously tr: nted with such success, and that master of rustic comedy, Eden Phiillpots, contrii...
THE FARM. THE ABUSE OF ARTIFICIAL MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 February 1914
THE FARM. THE ABUSE OF ARTIFICIAL MANURE. In a lecture recently deliverd .be fore the Mayfield Farmers' Club, Mr. G. A. Cowie, M.A., B.Sc., in describ ing certain abuses of artificial fertili sers, pointed out as one of the most flagrant the far too comffion system of one-sided or incomplete manuring. Many farmers were prone to use only one 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 abovei error, the lecturer quoted the fre quent use alone of nitrate of soda,: which at first might produce a luxu riant growth, but will afterwards refuse to perform its proper function owing to the exhaustion of the natu rnal phosphiates and potash in the soil. The withholding of these essen tial constituents from the manuring oiten explains the unsatisfactory re sults obtained from nitrate of soda, i: which, in consequence, is described as] a "scourge" and "s...
Brunswick's Steam Roller. To the Editor of "The Brunswick and Coburg Leader." [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 February 1914
Brunswick's Steam Roller. ;..! To tho Editor of "The Brunswick and Coburg Leader." Sir.-Tho altruistic and logical ec,. nomits of the single-tainx followers of Henury Goorge, who espoused the prin ciples of their great, and true-lhearted champion by supporting the purchlase of an imported steam roller, as the Cost would be £2.39 less than one loca! ly made, have not swayed me. My limited comnprehlension, subdued as it is to the workings of a protectione? environment, cannot attain to, tihe height of their reasoning. But the most disturbing point to nmy. miid! at least, against- the locaily made r,!ler, was passed over by the speakiers hoth pro and con. As well as I can reItent bet, the Mayor gave thie price of £1030 for a locally made rol!er and seariier; the imported wounld he £2 lcss, some parts of which I am in formed would Ve of steel mnakel and duplicated. From thie MayorI's statemnent four or five steam rollers haven-c been made during tIe last six years by the stame local fir...
RENOVATING PASPALUM. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 February 1914
RENOVATING PASPALUM. As illustrating the wonderful recu perative 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 heavT grazing having weakened the sward. The experience in question nwas that of a settler in the Coramba district, New South Wales Some 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 .TJanuary the pas palum made a move, .the young growth showing up betwein the sods as if it had been plant.dl. The maize was about 4I to 5 feet high, but the paddock was one waving field of pas palum fence high, and in full seed. The response was simply wonderful. An interestino feature of...

SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 February 1914
SHIPWRECKED MIAZDA LAMtPS AND THE SEQUEL. The "Electrical Times, "reported, when the "Oceana" foundered some time back, that a number of cases of Mazda lamps,. consigned to Bombay Town Hail, went to the bottom. The report concluded by saying that, "dredging operations are proceeding, and we have not the slightest doubt, that in the event of one of the boxes coming up, its contents would be found in tact." The sequel to this (vide the "Elec trical Times" six months later) is in teresting: In a p.iragraph headed, "A prophecy justified," they state that of 100 Mazda lamps recovered, only 4 per cent. were in any way damaged-the remaining 95 per cent. being in perfect condition. This is yet another proof that Mazdas are mechanically strong, and will withstand rough usage.
