Disappearance of Diesel. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 13 February 1914

Disappearance of Diesel. Dr. Diesel, the inventor of the oil-engine hearing his name, is like ly to remain an unfathomable mys tery. The doctor was on his way to London from Ghent to attend i the annual general meeting of the shareholders or the Consolidated Diesel Engine Manufacturers, and was accompanied by Mr. George Carels, a director of the company. Thoy were on board the Great East ern Railway's steamer "Dresden," and at about ten o'clock at night they separated and retired —as was supposed—to their respective cabins. In the morning, when the steamer was near Harwich, it was discover ed that J)r. Diesel's bed had not been slept in, although his cloth ing was found to be arranged in a manner that suggested that he had prepared to go to bed. A bunch of keys hung from his handbag, and his watch was placed in an elevated position, so that he might be able to see the time as he lay in bed. A thorough search of the ship was mude, but without result. At the meeting of shareholders, '...

THE FARM. THE ABUSE OF ARTIFICLAL MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 13 February 1914

T HE FA R M. I THI5 ABU8K OF ARTIKICLAIi MANURK. In a lecture recently delivered be fore the Mayfield Farmers' Ctub, iMr. G. A. Cowie, M.A":, B.8c., in describ ing certain abuses of artificial fertili sers, pointed out as one of tbo most, flagrant the far too common system of one-sided or incomplete immuring. Many farmers were prone to use only one sort of manure and neglect altogether the other fertilising in gredients which may be ns important, or even riiore important, for the crop or soil in question. Ab practical instances* of the above error, the lecturer quoted the fre quent use alone of nitrate of sodu, which at first might proiucc a luxu riant growth, but will afterwards 'refuse to perform its proper function owing to the exhaustion of the natu ral p>h!osphates and potash in tip soil. The withholding of these poten tial constituents from the manuring often explains the unsatisfactory re sults obtained from nitrate of s->dn which, in consequence, is described hs a "sco...

FIGHTING FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 13 February 1914

FIGHTING FISH. At Singapore it- is the custom to>] stock garden ponds with queer lisbcs , —many of them of-the lighting va-1 riety so dear to the heart of Orien-1 tals. These fish are so combative that it is only necessarj to place two of them near each other and irritate, them a little to bring on a lively j combat. They chargc eaoh other, with (ins erect, at the same time changing colour in their excitement from the dullest, of grey greens to brilliant reds and blues. Indc-cd, con-1 finemcnt in close quarters , is not neodod to arouBc their, combative propensities. Place two glass jnrs close together, with one of these! fighting fish in each, ami they will at once swim round anrd endeavour to chargc each other through the inter posed glass. TCvcn a single f.sh, see ing himself refloated in a mirror, will dart at his own image, and, irrita ted all the more by his failure to rcach his supposed enemy, will as sume brilliant hues ; seeing his re fleeted antagonist do the same, he w...

CHAPTER XX. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 13 February 1914

CHArTEIt XX. Barnes spent a clay or two in the calm of Ohiflern, growing more and more in the favour of the old duke, mid studying, with a mind alert and eager, all the beauties and grandeur of the great estate some day to be his. He had skilfully sounded the duke, ami had learned his opinions on many subjects, and invariably ap peared to coincide with these opin ions. This, of course, gave the dnke the impression that his grandson was a young; man' of superior wisdom. He felt friendly towards his heir, and ready to humour him in any way consistent with the ducal dignity he ; had upheld so long. j One morning Barnce, felt inclined to look about him farther . than his rambles round the casf.le had yet taken him, and ordered a horse to bo saddled. He started of! on a canter towards Framtic, and we will take leave of him at the start, while we pay some attention to others of our characters, intending to meet Barnes on his return. When Sir Peter had got rid of Barnes, and Mildred had go...
