NO DEATH FOR EIGHT YEARS . - ?? ? — r-f ?

THE SILVER-LACED WYANDOTTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 3 January 1911

TffriHiTtifirpnwYiff' DOTTE. ' . .?.'.. ' ?????? The 'Wyandotte, as -its- name im plies, is distinctly American, the original .silver-.lace.d v^^iety , having; made its appearance ins that country as far back as 1871. Since then there have sprung from it no fewer than 12 distinct varieties. The characteristics of all these are simi lar. They are noted as being capital layers of tinted-eggs, and they are hardy and easy to rear. Although tHey are good sitters and mothers/' they are not unduly given to broodi: ness. . They are a nice, compact fowl of medium size with rather a short neck and legs, short and broad head, surmounted by a low flat rose comb, broad, in front and tapering nicely as it follows the curve of the neck/ The silver-laced variety, of which ain illustration of the male is given, is cretainly not the least hand some.; indeed^ by .many fancie^sfit is cbMjdered /the ^ost ;Jbeautifur of all our established breeds of fowls.

NOT QUITE UP-TO-DATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 3 January 1911

' NbT QUITE UP-TO-DATE. In some parts of Mexico shot is still made in the old primitive way. A tower, consisting of a sliced pole lashed together with rope, and hav ing a crosspiece at the top, is first erccted. Attached to the crosspiece is a pulley, used for hoisting a pot of molton lead up to the top. When the lead has been hoisted, the wbrkmen 'climbs the pole and ladles, the lead. out. of the pot. It falls into a tub of water set at the base. The shot thus , produced is very irregular in form, and resembles gravel more than shot. No effort is .fnade at screening or sizing the 'pellets.?- ^ ?

POWER OF THE WILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 3 January 1911

; POWER OF THE WILL. There is an Arab fable to the effect that a certain traveller met the Plague going to Cairo. Asked the ;object of the visit, the Plague re plied : 'To kill 3,000 people. ' Some time- afterwards the traveller, meet ing the Plague .on the return jour ney, complained that it had killed 30,000. 'I am not responsible, for. that,' said the Plague. 'I only killed-3,000. The other 27,000 died of, fright at my arriyal.'.' A more-i modern example is furnished by Goethe, who says that Napoleon paid visits to men stricken with the plague in order to prove-that he who was able to conquer fear could also conquer the plague. 'And he was right,' adds Goethe. 'Tis, incredr ible what force the will has in suph cases ; it penetrates the body and. puts it in a state of activity which repels all hurtful influences, whilst' fear invites them,.' A wide public' is prepared to accept the maxim of Professor Royce: 'The proper mould ing of the will is, indeed, in one. sense, the goal of a...

THE DRUG OF SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 3 January 1911

THE DRUG OF SLEEP. Opium, so well known, even in remote times, for its valuable seda tive properties, is the dried milky juice lor 'latex obtained ' from the walls of the unripe seed of capsules 1 of several1 varietie^'Tof ' the opium , poppy. It is' prepared chiefly ' in Turkey, India, Persia, and China. The industry is of great importance ;in India, where, except, in the native states,' it is under strict Government control. ' The method of collecting the latex is practically the same in : all countries.. While the capsules are still. unripe, incisions are made in i their wajls, and the latex immedia tely exudes and soon, begins to coa-, gulate. The high price of the drug 'naturally results in its frequent adul teration. Besides, seeds,, charcoal, adulterants as shot, sand, mud/ and pieces of metal are sometimes added to increase the weight. Practically all the Indian drug exported goes to China. 0
