LIMIT OF UNAIDED VISION. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 5 February 1914
LIMIT OF UNAIDED VISION. The ability to discern the star Alcol at the tail of the Great Bear, has been held to be the test of the limit of human vision unaided by any glass. Very rarely is the eye of such power as to see the satellites of Jupiter, though there are on record two or three instances, the third satellite being the most distinct of those seen. It is said that Peruvianls are the longest sighted" race of all. There is recorded by Hfumboldt the case of Indians in that country who perceived a hoblui figure 18 miles away, being able to recognise it as a hluman being ulnd clad in white. -(.gin-n-n

THE HOME CURRIES AND CHUTNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 5 February 1914
-THE HOME -4 -- CURRIES AND CHUTNEY. If any have been in India we feel sure s Sthey will retain pleasant recollections of the excellent curries which they have ell joyed tlhere, for no lunch or dinner would be considered complete unless it contained ( Sthis popular dish in some form or other. The success of a curry made in India is partly" due to the fact that most of the ingredients composing it can be obtained fresh, but nowadays excellent curry pow ders can be bought cheaply which will im part a flavour almost equal to that given by the freshly-ground ingredients. One fact which is all-important is the slow, steady cooking, and also the use of commion-sense in the blending of the spices. So many people imagine that tile addition of a little curry powder to an ordinary mince makes an excellent curry, while others add so much pepper and spice as to malke it almost unbearably hot. Chutneys are the natural accompaniments of curries, and there are milany ways in whiich they can be mad...
