AN INVOLUNTARY VOYAGE. CURIOUS EXPERIENCE BY A GIRL [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
AN INVOLUNTARY VOYAGE. CURIOUS EXPERIENCE BY A GIRL A Honolulu message of October 11th in a San Franoisco paper, gives the following account of a young. woman's involuntary trip to Honolulu: With a smile in her pretty eye, that oven her tear-stained cheek could not suppress, handsome Miss Nettie Stone of Oakland arrived in Honolulu shortly after midnight last Thursday morning, having been brought on hoard the Can. adian Australasian Royal Mail hner, Marama from Victoria, when her in tention had been to sail from the Can adian port to San Francisco in the Umatilla. It was a dark night in Victoria when the boat sailed," said Miss Stone, "and I had just finished a visit with some friends on a ranchl near Viotoria. The friends took me to Victoria about an hour before the boat was due to sail, and I secured a ticket and boarded the ressel under the impression that it was the Umatilla and that I would soon be with my folks in Oakland. There were two steamers at the dock, I thought I was. ...
THE SUPER POSTCARD. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
THE SUPER POSTCARD. Almost; all Indian correspondence is carried on by means of postcards. It' is the only. country, perhaps, in which the postcard may be said to be a real success. In India it exactly supplied i want. The card is cheap (it costs only a id.), and it is cominplete in it self. Stamps and envelopes have to be wetted. The gum may have been . made of the hoofs or hones of the cow, anid theo thought of possible defilement of caste conio in. The postcard lhas no drawback. Its publicity, which mnakes E:g?lish peopleo dislike it, is not, con sidered a disadvantage by the -Iidian. Heo reads other people's letters as a tiatter of course, andl expe?'tl oilter pqoplo to read his. I have often seen a postman seated by the street side sorting out *his Ipostealrds; surrtttded by an interested little crowd. He and they are reading as amsny of the postcards as there is time for, and no appears conscious of irregularity in the procaedine :. "By gum t" thl girt numb calf I" "if .iver I...
CHEMICAL VALUE OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
CHEMICAL VALUE OF MAN. Dr Emil Hahn, writing in the Medo zinisohe Blaetter, mentions £1 11/6 as the value of a man weighing 1501bs The man's fat, according to the writer' is worth 10/5. Of iron, there . is barely enough to make a nail 1 inch long. There is, however, sufficient lime to wash a good-sized fowlhouse, Of phospherous, there is enough to put heads on 2200 matohes, and the magnesium in his body would provide a very pretty fireworks display. The man further holds withii his organism albumen in sufficient to make 100 eggs while of sugar he has.a teaspoonful, and of salt a more pinch.

A CHURCH WITH A CHEQUERED CAREER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
A CHURCH WITH A CHEQUERED CAREER. St. Mary's, Scho, is a church with a remarkabld rciigious history. It was originally ercoted through the in (luonco of Dr Compton, tthe tree planting Bishop of London, for the Greek Archbishop of Amos and his flock, who had been driven from their island by the Turks. Since then this little edifice has been successively a meeting house for Huguenots and Bap tists, and wai finially being turned into a music-hall when captured by the Established Church. It is now being used by the old Catholics for their Sunday Mass and other services. with the sanction of the Bishop of London. The first Anglican Bishop. of St Mary's was J. D. Chambers, a once famous Tractarian leader, ivho had among his congregation, Mr Glad stone.
NATIONAL APPLE DAY. ENCOURAGIN FRUIT CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
NATIONAL APPLE DAY. ENCOORAGIN FERUIT CONSUMP TION. One .of the happiest ideas that have, come to us.from Amierican fruitgrowers (siays the "Journal") is that bf a. National, Apple Day, the. object. being to bringbefore the. great commiunitiee. of city consumers, .in the. most attrac tive. manner- possible, the virtues. of the apple,. not -only as a choice item .of dessert, but .as: as valuable, everyday article:: of, diet. The. idea could be copied with: distinct advantage .in: this country. As the National..Apple. Day would be primarily. a? great advertising. campaign, on; behalf of the:. king; of. fruits, the asheme; would: require. to, be designed .on a .generous,scalee and in a manner.. which:, would appeal. to the greatest. number of .consumers.. It may. be. rather ambitious. to: adopt one American feature-the free distribu tion of apple pies. (special machinery at. the Spokane National Apple Show turn-. ed out:theseopies. at a rate; of 2250 per hour). However,. it would certa...
REJECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
REJECTED. In a carriage on a Scottish railway sat a number of gentlemen off for the holiday. Conspicuous in the company were two--one an old man with a very bald head, and the other a young fel low with a great crop of red hair, whose fiery hue would outrival the set ting sun. When they had passed Paisley most if the travellers put down -their news papers and began to yawn and look out lazily, awaiting the arrival of the train at their destination. Tiring of this prosaio silence, the young man with the red hair selected the old man as the butt of his.rit. "I say, old felelw," he: remarked rudely, "Nature surely had no hair in stock when you were made?" - "She had sir, she had," replied the old man; "but it was all red, anl- I. wvould not have any of it." Mistress: "Mary, I was almost sure, once last evening while the policeman was in the kitchen, that I -heard a soumid very much like two people- kiss ing." Mary: "Did you heat it only wsanst, mum?" Mistress: "Yes." Mary: "Thin it was...
TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. According to the statistics published (says- the Mark. Lane Express) there. were in England last year 244,831: acres classed- as. orchards. We are sorry. to say we cannotb say of "cultivated orchards,.. because the mistaken idea seems to have prevailed to a great ox thatl orchiaids and pastiures. can. get along alright;i without attention., or as sistance; thliat kind Nature. ,has, en dowed them with the. power of con tinuing to.. extiacdt nourishment. from a soil sucked dry by means of crop ping. The. result of-. such a paradox is visible. in. the. poverty stricken con dition of many orchards and pastures.. It is. pleasant to. record. that a change for .the better is gradually taking' place'. It is being- recognised that: when fruit trees, of. a good olass are grown, and- sprayed and pruned, orch ards become a source of profit. not to. be despised. It is essential. that the trees, if expected to, produce. abufd ant crops of good fruit, should: be sup ...
WELL WORTH KNOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
WELL WORTH KNOWING. He had only been married sia months, but already wore a wo_'ied look. An older friend of his, % many years of matrimonial experience behind him; asked him what troubled him. "Well, it's like this," he answered. "My wife is one of the best in the world, but I'm hanged if I can get her to mend .my shirts.' "I. suppose," answered the man eI - experience, "you go up to her and-ask her to mend a shirt for you when it needs repairing?" "Why, of course I do." "Alh, that's where you make a mis take. Now, what I do is this. .When I find that one of my shirts wants 'mending I wave it about a bit, and say. to my wife, 'This thing's no good,. where's the rag-bag?" " 'You're surely not.going to throw that shirt away, are you F" she will say. "Let me have a look at it.' " "She takes it, gives one look .t it, and says, 'What, throw it away because of that little hole?" And before I oan say Jack Robinson she give me the shirt back mended."

Terribly Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY ANNABEL GRAY. CHAPTER I. MR. AND MRS. BLACKADDER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
Terribly Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY ANNABEL GRAY. CHAPTER I. MR. AND M3RS. BLACKADDER. My nature is subdued To what it works in, like the dyer's hand. Pity me, then, and wish I were re newed.. * Never was there suoh an array or babies, and of all the depressing sights that can.greet the eyes of a political economist, a modern philosopher, or a pensive student of humanity, surely the vision of twenty helpless infants-the greater portion deserted by their par ents-is about the most distressing. They wered not only a puzzle and a problem to social reformers, good Chris tians, and politicians, but what was worse for their souls and bodies, were probably destined to become a perfect nuisance to sooiety. Who cared if they lived or died? Would they not ultimately constitute the rank and file of the army of mar tyrs-that great phalanx of victims who fill our gaols, unions, and asylums. Mrs.. Blackadder, under whose tender care these lost lambs were securely.plac ed, knew a great deal more a...
TALKS WITH PRACTICAL DAIRY FARMERS. DOES IT PAY TO DAIRY ON SURFACE-SOWN PASTURES? [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
TALES WITH PEACTIOAL DAIRY. FARMERS. DOES IT PAY TO DAIRY ON SUR FACE-SOWN PASTURES? (By Allan McNeill, in :N.Z. Dairy man.") We feel quite sure that the great majority of experienced and observant farmers will say 'no" to this question. And when we come to consider the en ormous area of surface-sown pastures in all the bush-dairying districts it is not diflioult to uynderstand why it is that such wretched returns are reaped by thohisands of hard-working farmers season after season. That these returns will go on getting poorer is a foregone conclusion unless farmers can be per suaded to study the law of "diminish ing returns," which applies more to iairying-and especially cheesemaking -than any other kind of farming, grain-growing excepted. If any man doubts the inoreased milk that there is in an acre of pasture properly laid down, he has only to try and see. . The difference is most mark ed, especially in low-lying country. It is not only that there is an increased production of he...
CHINA'S WONDERFUL RESOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
CHINA'S WONDERFUL RESOURCES. If the new Government of Chin? :akee a statesmanlike view of the situ ation, steps will be taken to reverse the old 1Manchu policy of the closec loor, and the great country will take its place amongst the foremost indus trial nations of the world. England 'and Germany have been abi, to, secure their position owing to the presence f reoal and irol in their respective borders, and China is, if anything, much more highly favoured in respect of the character and extent of her mineral supplies. In that interesting magazine, "The Republican Advocate," Mr C. C. Lue writes on "The Future Outlook of China," and indicates the extent of the mineral' deposits of the middle kingdom. He says: In practically every province in Chilia there are mountains of unlimit ed wealth in the ores, precious stones, and useful metals. It is certainly surprising to find that in Shansi the immense deposits of coal, iron, and limestone should be so closely laid down, so as to provide f...
An Emperor's Day. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
An Emperi os Day.. Nothing better attests what a he' man lldyuamo Emperor William is is the matter of work than his daily pro gramme He rises at 5 o'clock in the morning-and even earlier in the sum oer or when the press of business is especially heavy. By six o'clock he is in his workroom partaking of a cup of tea or bouillion and a sandwich ere hr seats himself on the uncuahioned chair before the great ebony, flat top desk that cdnstitutes the arena of his activi ties. At seven o'clock the Emperor- is ready to receive the reports of his ad jutants and ministers, a task to which he devotes the next three hours, and inasmuch as these reports are almost invariably presented by the officials in person, it happens that many digni taries, in Berlin find it necessary to take up the work of the day at an hour when the. chiefs of State at other capitals are' enjoying their "beauty sleep." Part of this morning inter val of three hours the Emperor de votes to auditing the bills for ithe house...

PICTURES THAT FAILED. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
l-i PICTURES THAT FAILED. •A traveller has written an amusing account of his efforts to get sometaing to eat when on a visit to Japan. In company with an artist friend, he made his way to a tea-house, where the two men were-ushered by a girl into a room simply furnished. "The girl went out and presently re tuirned with a lacquered tray holdin two very small and shallow cups of colourless, unsweetened Japan tea, which, kneeling, she presented to us. W'e tried to explain to her in English. French, German, Russian, and sign language that we were famished and wanted something to eat, but our ef forts to be inteligibe elicited nothing save a look of embarrassment and a shy Japanese giggle. '"Try her with pictures,' I suggest ed. 'You'll never put your artistic talent to better ua Draw a fish, an egg,ea loaf of breaa, and a bottle of beer, and I'll go through the motions of eating and drinking them. That ought.to fetch her.' "And it did, "A gleam of intelligence and pleased comprehension ...
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. ABOUT PATENT LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
QUESTIONS. AND ANSWERS. ABOUT PATENT LAW. "When patent specifications are lodg ed, are they aaoapted by the Govern nent in that forml?" The anoier by Mr. G. G. Turri to this question is that in some countries they are, and in those countries it is all thu more important for the appli cant to hare the specification properly worded, for if it is not, he may lose benefits otherwise obtainable--perhaps he may lose a fortune. In Australia, however, while a great many are ac cepted as filed, there are amendments made to suit the examiners, before an acceptance is issued, in a fair pro portion of tieoo applicants. We now give further details of Aus tralian Patent Law, in continuation of the matter on the subject in our pre vious issue, and as supplied by Messrs. Turri & Co. "Proceedings for the insertion in a specification of a disclaimer, oorrectioa or explanation proposed by applicant may be taken, and such alteration will be allowed if the specification as amend ed does not clai...
