HE CAUGHT IT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914

HE OUGIHT IT. I just caught the train with the young lady in it, - In spite of the crush and the crowd that was there, But was down on my luck the very next minute I just caught the train with the young lady in it; For a rip and a cry and a scream rent the air, And the dancers all stopped-'twas rent past repair.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914

Dante Gabriel Rossetti. In 1872 insomnia seized Dante Rossetti, and thenceforth till his death in April, 1882, his life, notwithstanding many splendid pictures (for which he obtained, for he was a rare hand at a bargain, high prices), and notwithstand ing his triumphant " Ballads and Son nets," becomes the painful record of a mind diseased. His friends fell away from him ; and the tale his brother tells -with much frankness is a-tale of mhs-ry and wretchedness. Better have been a ploughman whistling to his team, an.l sleeping his six hours out of every twenty-four, with the certainty of child 'hood, than the painter of "Dante's Dream" and " The Roman Widow" ; than the poet who sang of "The White Ship" and " The King's Tragedy."

INCUBATORS IN EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914

INCUBATORS IN EGYPT. The announcement is made by Mr. Vt. 1-H. Cadman that he has discovered how the ancient Egyptians incubated chick ens to the number of 120,000,000 a year. -ie has found incubators which he states were used in Egypt 5,000 yea rs ago. The secret has been well guard ed, but it is laid barI at last. They had no oil stones or gas or clectric heated incubators, but they had ovens which worked better even though they required more constant tending. Each oven was calculated to hold 7,000 eggs, and the fuel by which it was heated consisted of chopped straw and dung,. but for the last ten days of the hatching the energy was supplied altogether by the chickens themselves. It is the com monest error of those operating our modern incubators to use too much heat, especially towards the end of the period, and now we may learn from the old Egyptians how not to do things as well as how to do them. The use of the straw and other light fuel shows that the Egyptians Were most carefu...
