Why Fat Kings Were So Popular. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 20 March 1914

Why Fat Kings Were So Popular. 4 There was for j;cncrntioiis a cus tom in India of weighing the king, or ruler, in gold, ami giving that gold to the poor. The custom pro vails to-day in some parts of In dia, and Kins George. V. of Kng land would have hceil weighed dur ing his visit there, in keeping with the custom, had he l>eon an ordi nary Eastern monarch. Perhaps this weighing in gold was because must Indian rulers were extremely fat gentlemen. At iii.'.v rate, it was tin; fat iimn;mhs who were the most popular in the olrlnn days, for on the "weighing flays" every additional pound of king meant bo many more rupees for the poor. A Maharajah who w,v. rpcmtly ; crowned seated himself in one of tho gold pann of the balance, while into tho other was thrown gold coin until royalty rose in the scales. Tho Mahrorajah, by an unwritten luw, did not become lognll.v chief until he had been weighed in this manner. Jn olden times the custom prevailed of throwing the money into the nir and b...

Tho weather continues very dry and all the paddocks are parched.

Bird Migration. TWO GREAT PUZZLES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 20 March 1914

Bird Migration. » TWO GREAT PUZZLKS. In connect ion with the phenom enon of the migration of birds, the two great pii/./.l»*s iiro-Why docs It exist V and How is it performed ? The first question is not answered by fwying it is a habit, into which some birds have fallen f-jr the sake of .«ieeuring to themselves those means or conditions of lifo that are im plied by "fitting tcinperurnru and sufficiency of food." Tlere are birds that migrate whm, to all human appearance, there is no need for doing it.. The fieldfare to take a familiar example-might, as well live and breed in Scotland during the summer, so far tem perature and food supply go, as does its congener the thrush. Thn answer to the question must show the reason for (lie formation of the habit-must snv why migration first bepan, and why it continued till the habit became an inherited in stinct. it must, show why curtain air routes aro followed that do not seem to be the best available; and why tho initiation is limited by ba...
