DRAINING THE ZUYDER ZEE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

DRAINING THE ZUYDER ZEE. The Zuyder Zee (Southern Sea) was formerly a lake surrounded by fens and Marshes, its present extent- being chiefly the result of floods which oc ourred in the thirteenth century. Its area is about 2000 square miles, and average depth from 10ft to 19ft. It has always been the work of the Hol landers to recover as much as possible of -the land lost to them in this man ner in past ages, and in the literal sense they can bo said, to have halt made their country, having reclaimed over 1,000,000 acres from'the sea, lake and river, since tho sixteenth oenturv. Schemes for the reclamation of the Zuyder Zee have been at various times discussed, and. a Bill was intro duced in 1900, but afterwards with drawn, to deal with, first, some 115,000 [ aores of the Southern part at a cost of about £7,917,000, and eventually 500,0004acres at a cost of £24,000,000.

INFLUENCE OF WATER ON VEGE TATION. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

INFLUENCE OF WATER ON VEGE TATION. To explain tiho influence of water on vegetation, it is necssary to inquire into its manner of acting upon tho various organs of plants. Ifc cer. tainly passes into ^heir substance through the roots. When the roots of a withered, dry, and shrivelled plant are placed in water, it recovers its freshness and vigor, and renews its vegetation. Colored, liquor peroep tioley penetrates and rises up through the vcbsejs of tho young and white radical fibres, to which it communicate color. Every tree or plant grows or carries out 'its vegetative functions with more or less vigor in proportion as its roots are less or more furnished with moisture. This water, absorbed by the roots, passes up through tho stems into all parts of the plant. It partly exudes from the leaves, whioh return to tho atmosphere; and the more abundant the production of this transudation, in consoquonce of the heat and solvent jiower of tho air, so much the greater is the absorption of w...

RADIUM ON DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

RADIUM ON DEATH. "Eveca in an age of wonderful dis coveries that announced to-day is well calculated to astonish the least imagi native. It cannot be said that the curative properties of radium are as yet definitely established, though there as exoellent ground for hope in the facts cited by Sir Frederick Treves," says tho Daily News. "But the mere details of the new discovery are so amazing that tho mind staggers at them. "The great barrier to tho adapta tion of inventions to the service of man has nearly always been tho absence of some oheap and effective way of dis seminating them What the Radium Institute has done is to make it pos sible for any country doctor to em ploy the most expensive known sub stance in tho treatment of jhis pa tients at a very moderato cost.

VILLAGE PHILOSOPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

VILLAGE PHILOSOPHY. Some fellows never show up very well at home, and always a good deal worse when abroad. A good rain in the nick of time makes a farmer feel like a newly ap pointed democratic postmaster. When the title of D.D. goes to A preacher's head it is a misfit. One can see a good many things .ren through a knot liole if lie keeps his eyes open The most of us could out down our living expenses considerably if our neighbors would do the same. The importance of a quarrel is never measured by the noise of it. With some men, no celebration is worth while which doesn't require sev eral days to get over the effects of it. Few may play with the devil and win. it Among the blind, the one-eyed is king. A horse's strength, roughly sneak ing. is equal to that of ibout five men. We have never too muoh time for gladdening the hearts of those who are travelling the journey of life with us.; If a man does not make new acquain tances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself l...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") "Our Vanishing Meat Supply" is thw heading under whioh a leading San Francisco paper discusses the prospect of a meat famine in the United States. That such a prospect actually exists, is admitted and deplored by the great rnoat slaughterers and paokers of the Middle West. It ia a matter of seri ous portent to the United States; but other stock-raising countries of the world stand to benefit immensely, es pecially in view of the tariff reduction that went into effect quite recently. If the fears of the wholesale meat dealers of America are as well-found ed, there is no limit to the quantity j of frozen mutton and beef from Aus tralia and New Zealand that the Unit ed State oan absorb. For seven or eight years past the price ot meat has been high with a constant tendency to hierease rather than depreciate. In the ensuing similar period there will bo a further advance, according to every sign.. The possibility of a moat famine has been brought promine...

Railway Wheat Sites. OFFICIAL BLUNDERING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

Railway Wheat Sites. ! OFFICIAL BLUNDERING. The action of those responsible for the selection of grain sites on the Berrybank station is being adversely criticised, the portion of the railway yard leased to firms to stack wheat thereon being absolutely unsuitable and unsafe. The matter of stacking 50,000 bags of wheat is apparently a mere detail to the indoor officials, who no doubt in their inexperience consider that the low-lying ground is the proper place to dump grain, and then to await its des truction by the water which must ac cumulate. One leading firm of wheat buyers complain that sites have been allotted at Berrybank in a swamp, and they refuse to put their wheat on the site unless the railway authorities fill up the depression at once. The accom modation given to the public at several other stations for the handling of produce is inadequate, and efforts are to be made to provide suitable sites for farmers and others who pay high rental for sites which have been "acquired"...

A CAT STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

A CAT STORY. Tom was the ninth son of our own marvellously prolific begetter of tab bies and Toms innumerable We had gifted him, when quite a wee tot, to our sister-in-law, out about 5 or 6 miles from Dundee. By-and.-by, when ho had beooine a fine, strapping young hunter, a brother of my wife's took a fancy to him and got him on loan for a voyage to the Arctic regions (oc cupying several months out and back). Tom's ocoupation during the voyage was to hunt mico and other lively raora bers of the crew on board the whaler who had never signed articles nor did any sort of work, and yet expected to and did participate in a share of the vittles. My brother-in-law himself cai-ried Mr Tom (seourel.v packed in a wicker basket with the lid strapped down) all the five or six miles of country roads and lanes, thinly peopled, and much winding in way through the busiest and most thronged streets of Dundee to tho docks, got aboard, and dump ed tho cat and basket on the top of his locker in his bun...

Concerning .some parts of,the district news comes but seldom. This is not entirely our J'ault; we have no miracu lous power of knowing what is happen ing at all the places within our area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease ? If no one else is doing it' for your district, will you try on these lines ? Send accounts of public and social events in your township and neighbour hood, such as weddings, deaths, acci dents, concerts, matters touching dis trict industries, etc. Write the names of persons very distinctly. Dont bother about grammar or spell ing ; it's the editor's work to look after those trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. Write only on one side of the paper. Write your name and address on some corner-not for publication, but to prove good faith. Give information ; but let criticism alone.

GARDEN WORK [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

GARDEN WORK Lilies are amongst the most beauti ful and ornamental of cultivated bul bous plants. Tbeir large showy and richly colored flowers, which are in many varieties highly perfumed are produced on erect sterna, giving the plants a stately appearance, and ren dering them altogether indispensable subjects for the embellishment of the garden. Many of the strong grow ing, hardy kinds are admirably ad apted for grouping and naturalising in shrubberies, and when once estab lished the bulbs may be allowed to remain for years without being taken up or disturbed. When planted here and there in olumpa along near the edges of partially shaded walks and drives they present a most pleasing ef fect when in full bloom. Lilies are best adapted for planting in the mix ed border, arranging them according to the height of the different varieties. The commoner and most plentiful spe cies that have been established here for many years give ample evidence of the suitability of our climate for lily ...

LEARN TO BE SILENT. The art of living eucceai^ullly with others, like most other arts, depends chiefly on the art of omission. By restricting our words and actions, or let us say words, for actions are of comparatively little* importance, the chief offences would bo avoided. The first thingj needful is to learn to be quiet, tt is the foundation for self-command of all kinds. The first step to speaking well is to know how to keep silent. In this way it°comes at last to the Ego itself, and not t'h© body or the temperament which con ducts our shard of the conversation. To say the ri^ht thing1 at the right moment, to the right person, is per fection, yCt on the lower and more io tesy of which popularity is the acknow ledgment.
