ARE GEESE INTELLIGENT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 23 May 1902
1 ABE GEESE INTELLIGENT. Dr. B. H. Ward remarks a curious habit in animals, not famous for intel lectual brightness. 'When passing a village stream, he noticed at the water b edge, on the very muddy shore, a busy crowd of geese eagerly feeding on some scraps mostly so covered with mud, sand and adherent filth that even a goose knew too much to eat it, or else could not swallow it. So each bird that round a piece too dirty to eat picked it up and deliberately carried it down to the water, sometimes a yard or two distant, to wash it.
THE OLDEST LIVING CREATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 23 May 1902
THE OLDEST LIVING CBEATUBE. | This title is the prond distinction of a giant tortoise in the Zoological Garden. It weighs over a ton, and has certainly lived fer 150 years, perhapi a good longer. The structure of the tortoise contri- i butes a good deal to hie chances of longevity. His shell is really an outside skoleton, which grows and hardens with his growth, and a large tortoise is practi cally Bafe from injury by any other animal. He has no teeth to worry him by aching or decaying ; his limbs are so constructed as to be elmost unfracturable ; he cannot bo drowned : he is capable of fasting for long periods, and is provided with an internal repervoir of water.

Aad the sale will not only bring in a certain sum of money — which is useful en- u,b, Heaven knows — but it will end a heavy strain upon the income.

Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 23 May 1902
Varieties. Melbourne, which consisted of thirteen huts, and was known as Beargrass. at the time of Queen Victoria's acoeBsion, is now classed as the seventh city of the Brif-Uh Empire, coming in after London, Liver pool, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, and Calcutta. It is found that the X-ray shines through a fox terrier as if he were a Chinese paper lantern. The experiment was tried on an animal of this species which had swallowed a diamond ring, the trinket appearing twinkling in his midst — visible as a fly in amber or goldfish in a glass globe. One of the most beautiful sights in the world is the annual migration of the butterflies across the Isthmus of Panama. Where they come from or whither they go no one knows, and though many dis tinguished naturalists have attempted to solve the problem, it is still as strange a mystery ks it was to the first European traveller who observed it. Towards the end of June a few scattered specimens are discovered flitting ont to sea, and as the...
HOME-MADE TOOTH PASTE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 23 May 1902
HOME-MADE TOOTH PASTE. A nice tooth paste or a sweet-smelling tooth powder may be reckoned among the toilet articles which are the delight of every well-organised woman. i But the best tooth pastes are expensive, and many a woman has been compelled to buy something less dainty than she wanted, because she could not afford to buy the gilt-edged variety. The following is a tooth paste whioh may be highly recommended. It is sweet smelling, woe tasting, and cleansing, without having in its composition an in gredient which could possibly harm the teeth. Indeed, it is so mild that those who require a 'gritty' pasta must add pumice-stone to the compound. For this tooth paste get of powdered orris root a quarter of a pound, of pow dered myrrh two ounces, of powdered white soap three ounces, of powdered saffron one ounce, and of oil of lavender two drachms. Mix with one pound of precipitated chalk. This makes quite a larve quantity. But it keeps well. For the delicate teeth of children a goo...

Sketcher. FACTS ABOUT MODERN GUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 23 May 1902
Sketcher. FACTS ABOUT MODERN GUNS. SgsWrO rapidly has improvement followed improvement in armament of I recent years that really few civilians can talk 'guns' without putting their foot in it. Everyone knows, of course, that all modern gunB are rifled, but how comparatively few know what exactly rifling is! If they did, very probably they wonld be profoundly puzzled to aocount for its action on the projectile. The adoption of ruled ordnance un doubtedly marked an epoch in the history of warfare, so startling ia its superiority over the smooth bore. Just compare the two. The latter had of necessity a gaping bore to accommodate the clumsy round shell of its period, which shell un leaving j tbe muzzle had to cope with most deter mined air resistance, and rarely survived a . journey of a mile without going j seriously astray. Many on reaching i their destination had the life thumped out of their time fuses, while again, in other cases, the fuses burnt in such leisurely paid-by-timefaBhi...

She en gaged, for the occasion, the services of au old butler, who had retired and become a greengrocer, and of a boy who knew nothing of waiting.

Stand behind the Bishop's chair, and when hiB Lordship takes a glass of wine, wipe his mouth with your napkin !' Tho boy took tbe jocose reply for a serious command. He stationed himself behind the Bishop^ waited till that dignitary had drunk a glass of wine, and then, as deliberately as his nervousness would permit, wiped his lordship's mouth.
