NATURE RESERVES [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 March 1914

NATURE RESERVES If we could go back a hundred years we .should find many birds and plants which are now extinct, or iearly HO, comparatively common in this country (writes H.F.S., in "The "Westminster Gazette"). No ono wems to have thought of the creation <of nature reserves for their protection or for any application of the law to close seasons, except for game. And so birds iilce the hoopoe and the ori ole, the harrier and the crested grebe and the buzzard, are now unknown in many parts of the country where they were once common. This brings ms to the point of this article, which is to call attention to the new society for the promotion of nature reserves which has just been formed with the Itight Hon. J. W. LiOWther as its pre sident, and many distinguished scien tists and ornithologists and botanists on its council. The aim of the society is to add to the number of nature reserves which have already been formed by the Na tional Trust. Those are too few and far between...

POLICE AND LAMPS [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 March 1914

POLICE AND LAMPS The, L.ondon policeman's "bull's eye", is, according to report, shortly to pass away (says the "Daily Tele graph" of January 8). In its stead he is to have an electric torch, which will spread light before and around him, while he himself remains un seen. At his bidding there will be light, though doubtless there will be times when, pressing a button with twentieth century confidence in science, he will call for light and none will come. But that modern wizard, the electrician, may be trusted to see to it that these occasions are rare. "Heloved Peeler" has become so much an institution with us that we are apt to forget there was a time when, so far from being thus affec tionately hailed in song, he was the target for hearty abuse and ridicule. For in order that he might come an other had to go, and though the eighteenth century "Charley" was about as lit to preserve order as a ruined keep would be to repel a siege train, the English have a sentimental mercy for thei...

As the purchaser of the Duke of Bedford's Covent Garden estate, he becomes a person of extraordinary in terest. What Is he going- to do with his purchase? That was one of the questions put to him by a "Daily News" representative lust night. Would he sell the market to the London County Council? He replied that, if approached, he would, be prepared to treat with the London County Council "as a willing: seller and a willing purchaser." "I would rather sell it to a "public authority than to a private owners," he said, "it is a property, I think, which would be better held-on account of its size and importance-by a publii; authority.

£500,000 AN OUNCE LATEST FACTS ABOUT RADIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 March 1914

£500,000 AN OUNCE .?'.LATEST FACTS ABOUT RADIUM. s(By T. Tliorne Baker, in "The Daily Mail"). The rarest thing in the world. Mr Mallaby-Deeley, in his recent pur chase of the Bedford estates, could have paid for the whole transaction with a small teacupful of radium. At its present price, one ounce of ra .dium is worth about half ,i million pounds, and though new sources of .mineral and improved methods of ex traction may ultimately bring the price rmuch lower, its rarity will always ro zriain, because it occurs in nature in ?:uch infinitestimally small quantities. Since its discovery radium has been a thing of extreme fascination to the scientist, while the general public have regarded it with mild curiosity. But its recent effects in the treatment of can cer have made jt a thing of absorbing interest to the whole world. There are various sources for obtain ing radium, for it occurs always in a fixed proportion with the met.al uranium. Wherever we find uranium we are sure to find t...

TOURING PLANETS VOYAGE THROUGH SPACE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 18 March 1914

TOURING PLANETS VOYAGE THROUGH SPACE. "First stop Mars." It sounds adven turous, but then if your car is the tele scope and your conductor Professor IT. H. Turner (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 5) you soon discover that the journey of a few million miles to Mars is a mere ileabite to the distance covered and the sensations enjoyed be fore you are back again at the start ing point in the lecture room of the Royal Institution in Albemarle street. In a flash on Saturday afternoon we were at the end of the first stage of the journey. True, wc had not quite got the length of Mars, but the big telescope had used its seven league boots to some purpose, and before wondering eyes a big globe was floating on the screen, the planet Mars as near as human agency has so far brought it. We look ed for canals and possible signals from the Martians, but whether it was that the inhabitants had not heard of our tour or were disgusted with the liberties taken with their sphere they made no sign...
