INVENTION OF PRINTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
INVENTION OF PRINTING. The origin of printing jdates much further back than is usually sup posed, for we learn that investigat ors have discovered at Phacotos, in Cr ete, a disc in clay, of sixteen centi metres in diameter, about six inches and a quarter, which carries upon the two faces more than 120 repre sentations of men, animals, trees, etc., constituting one of the first ex amples of hieroglyphics used in Crete. These signs are not engrav ed, but 'are made with a punch. This is said to be the first example of typography dating from about the twentieth century before the Chris tian era. Some time ago it was as serted that electricity was known to th ' Pharoahs, and now we have it that printing was known at least 40 centuries ago. What invention, it may be asked, can belong to modern peoples!.
ALUMINIUM AS A TEXTILE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
ALUMINIUM AS A TEXTILE. Aluminium takes first rank among metals for lightness combined with toughness a id durability, and the articles now made from it include scarves, shoes, belts, neckties, shawls . and hats . ... Straps and lacihgs for boots are amoner the newest produc tions. Sieves or screens made of aluminium have proved especially valuable in sugar -refining, as it quickly becomes coated with acid resisting oxide ; and it can be woven alone into fabric for other purposes. The best results, however, are ob tained by employing the aluminium yarn — smooth or twisted — as warp, with coloured silk threads for weft. When this cloth is made into cloaks or theatrical costumes, the effect is very striking, and the body of a hu man being is said to look as though dipped in silver.
Facts & Fancies. A BOTANICAL CURIOSITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
Facts & Fancies. A BOTANICAL CURIOSITY. White in the shade,' red in the sun, puch is the twofold character that has given a name to the cham eleon rose. At night or when it is carried into a dark room it assumes a wax-like whiteness. This does not occur abruptly, but the petals first pass through a bluish tint, which rapidly changes into a very pale rose,' and finally ends by becoming | the purest white. Then if it be taken into bright sunlight with the greatest rapidity it resumes the scar let tint of the most brilliant peony. This horticultural phenomenen comes from Japan, that country of magic gardens and wizard horti culturists.
FEATHER EATING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
... FEATHER BATING. . A correspondent would like to know the cause and cure of feather eating. I will try to explain both. When fowls take to eating feathers or .plucking each other it is a sure sign that they are in either a pam pered or diseased state. Improper food-^-of too heating and stimula ting a character, such as a diet of oatmeal only, potatoes, rice too much meat, Indian corn, or -the ab sence. of green food — has a lot to do with it. Keeping the fowls too strictly confined will also bring it on, for in such .places they are of ten tempted with all sorts of food, and consequently become pampered. The first thing to consider when attempting . to remedy the tendency is to allow the fowls free range, where they will have to forage for a portion of their food. . Failing - this, put into their covered run, to the depth of a foot, some stable refuse, . chopped straw, chaff, or similar materia). Among this some . oats should - occasionally be mix ed, and upon it the birds daily ...
The Poultry Run. POULTRY KEEPING AS A HOBBY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
The Poultry Rod. POULTRY KEEPING AS A HOBBY, I There is an old, true saying that 'all work and no. play makes Jack a dull, boy.' Undoubtedly every man and woman should have a hob by of some kind to occasionaHy take his or her mind away from the busi ness or domestic cares of life, and there is no better hobby than poul try keeping. It does not require a great amount of study to acquire the simple art of managing a few fowls, and as useful pets I know of very few creatures to equal them. A few fowls kept in the backyard or garden will not only afford muchT pleasure to their attendant, but will, if properly cared for, yield a pro fitablereturn forthe attention bestow ed upon them. No one with a good sized yard or garden need be with out a few fowls, _so long as the lat ter are kept under sanitary condi tions, and such fowls, in return for - their- daily requirements in the way of- food, etc., would provide in the way of eggs tempting and nutritive food for home consumption.
THE SUNFLOWER [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
THE SUNFLOWER This gorgeous and prolific plant is atilised in many ways in Russia. The seeds are eaten in large quan : tities, raw or roasted, and the oil obtained by pressing them is an im . portant article of food, especially during the frequent religious feast days, when the use of meat is re stricted. The best seeds yield an oil that compares very favourably with olive oil. The stalks and dried leaves make fine fuel; in fact, in some parts of the Empire it is al most the only available substitute for wood. An acre of sunflowers will supply many cords of good fuel besides 50 bushels of seeds, repre senting about an equal number of gallons of oil, valued at from 4/ to 5/ Per gallon ; the profit therefore is large, in addition to the oil from the seeds, the green stalks and oil cake make (excellent fodder. The fibre being fine, silky, and strong, could, it is believed, by the use of proper machinery, be put to many useful purposes. In China it is woven in to beautiful fabrics.
REASONS WHY POULTRY DON'T PAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
REASONS WHY POULTRY ! DON'T PAY. Very often too much money is spent. The cost of upkeep is not care fully calculated before starting. Because they are fed on common food offered cheap, instead of the best. Very often the birds are overgor ged instead of haying a proper sys tem and time for feeding. Because many think fowls- never want a tonic to fortify and keep them in health, like our fathers of old used to give their fowls. The comfort of the birds is not thought of by providing scratching sheds, or shelters. There is an old- saying, 'When fowls get their feet wet,- they; cease laying.' . The 'roosting houses and sheds are erected anywhere instead of where they will be shielded. Many fail i to ' make poultry pay because ?they take no interest or care in their fowls but leave it to others instead of giving personal supervi sion...-.- ? .V . 7 ? Because to make fowl-keeping a profitable - and ' ? successful undertak ing, enthusiasm and energy are necessary all the year round. Of te...
LEGHORNS FOR SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
LEGHORNS FOR SHOW. Nothing looks better in the show pen ' than a perfect, well washed white leghorn with its beautiful white plumage, yellow leg, and red* comb. The color is the thing to breed for. The points about show leghorns are a strong beak yellow color, comb broad at base and deep at the back with four to seven even serrations. ' The heel of the comb should extend beyond the head fol lowing the line of the hackle, but not touching it. The eye should be bright 'red and the face of a fine texture and free from white' specks ; the wattle long, thin, and of fine texture; neck arched, prominent, and well rounded; the back should slope to the tail and be slightly rounded. The tail should be well furnished with secondry sickle, fea thers; legs long, but not very yel low. ~To prepare the birds for the show pen they must be used to a small coop. The fowls should be washed in fairly hot lather, and thoroughly sponged over, being careful not to rub up the quill, and rinsed afterwards in...

FOWLS AND GARDENING.

THE SIMPLICITY OF COMMENCNG. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
THE SIMPLICITY OF COM MENCNG. All in the way of fixtures required to start poultry keeping i' small way is a house sufficient' /large to accommodate half a do'yti birds, an attached scratching s'yd or covered run, a few good fowls secured from a reliable source, and a little sound judgment as to the requirements of the birds in the way of food, and at tention to details as regards cleanli ness. The fowl will cost little to keep, as most of the food will come from the kitchen in the form of table scraps, while attention to cleanliness will entail but little time, a thorough cleaning out of the roosting house and run once a week being all that is necessary to ensure sanitary con ditions.

DON'T WHINE! [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
DON'T WHINE! Take what comes to you and do your best with it. Make the bravest fight-you can; strain your self to see the cheerful side of things, even the funny side of the mishaps you cannot help. Strangle complaints with a laugh — a cheery laugh is good for heart and brain, and clears the mists from the eyes of faith. Endure what must needs be endured, go forward bravely. A day is not a day well spent unless you have tried to send a ray of sun shine into some clouded life. What will you do to-day? You may be busy here and there with your house hold cares or the vexatious details of your business, but you should take time to make someone happy. 'Tak- ing up one's cross' means simply that you are to go the road you see to be the straight one; carrying whatever you find is given you to carry, as well and stoutly as you can ; without complaining or calling people to come and look at you. Who watching our lives and following us as we go about our daily avocations would dream that we a...

He would get out of all the clamour of congratulation that now seemed' so distasteful. 'And when you come back, sir——' The old man paused nervously. 'Well, what is it? What do you think should happen when I come back?' asked Wrangham, with an indulgent smile. Of all the servants this was the only one in whom he had any personal in terest, and his affection for the venerable butler was almost filial. 'I was only thinking, sir, that you might pardon an old man who 'first served under your grandfa ther, and has never worked, man or boy, for anybody else but a Wrangham, if I might venture to hope that...

If the kitchen range gets red and will not blacken, try rubbing on lem on juice first, then blacken in the usual way and the result will be highly gratifying. To clean a pan in which milk has 6een boiled, pour out the milk and immediately pour into the pan some boiling water, whisk round once or twice, then wipe out with a clcan dry dishcloth, and you will have a clean pan in a minute. Have a special drawer or shelf for table linen where it will not wrinkle. Cloths and napkins that are not in general use should be wrapped in blue muslin to keep them from yel lowing.

THE EVER-BURNING LAMP IN KING EDWARD'S TOMB. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
THE EVER-BURNING .'.AMP IN KING EDWARD'S TOMB. Before the death of King Edward certain privileged persons were allow ed to take their friends into the royal vault beneath the Albert Memorial Chapel at Windsor. Since the King's funeral, however, stringent orders have been issued that no one except a member of the Royal family is on any account to descend into the vault which is now kept as completely pri vate as the Royal Mausoleum at Frog more, where Queen Victoria and the Piince Consort are buried. By the express wish of Queen Alexandra, a lamp is always kept burning in front of the altar that stands at the head of the stone slab on which rests the re mains of King Edward.
The Farmer. TILLING SOIL WITH DYNAMITE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 20 December 1910
The Firmer. ? ? : ? ? ? TILLING SOIL WITH DYNA MITE. Probably no stranger use for dy namite has ev'er been devised than its substitution in place of the plough for the tilling of clay -land. It is being put to such a' use on a con siderable experimental scale in Kan sas, U.S.A. The first experiment at Spartanburg consisted of the ex-1 ploding of a stick of dynamite -n each of a series of water-melon hills and the resultant crop showed the benefit of the treatment. The next experiment was the breaking up of on acre field by dynamite. The cartridges were planted 3 ft. apart in rows, and at a depth of 4 ft. The holes were made by driving crowbars to the desired depth. The dynamite was exploded by a line of men, provided with red-hot irons. The line went rapidly down the field, the explosions following the mert in a steady roar that was deafening. The explosions threw clouds of soil 30ft. into the air,- and covered the men from head to foot with dust and dirt. Clay land, when once distu...
