SPORT AND PASTIME. THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 12 November 1914

SPORT AND PASTIME. THE TURF. There is not the least doubt that the wet -weather on Darby Pay affected Mountain Knight in the classic event, and that the form shown by him in that race was all wrong. He has won twice since, and the manner in which he cut down the opposition in the C. B. Fisher Plate on Saturday will be remembered by those who witnessed the way he finished for some time to come. The time put up for the race (2min 33Hsec), equalled the record put up by Radnor last year. There is no doubt that Mountain Knight is a great colt, and if he keeps well ho will cap ture another rich stake or two as a four-year-old. Swedish Lad and his rider were accorded a great reception at Flemington on Saturday whenj returning to weigh in. His vic tory was his seventh in suc cession, and the manner in which he carried 12.7 to victory stamps him as the' champion 'chaser of Australia, and he finished as if another stone on his back would not have stopped him. It must be admitted that the fiel...

Kaiou Chiau. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 12 November 1914

Kaiou Chiau. Shortly after Germans took over fn.m China tbe Kaiau Chiau newly appointed Governor, the Admiral ou the station and a Single Taxer were dinning together, the chief subject, of interest being the new territory recently taken over. The Governor, Herr Schrameyer, was particularly anxious to prevent the development of land speculation, which he had known to strangle other German colonies soon after being taken over. That was the oppSrtunlty of the land reformer. Carefully avoiding overy appearance of being a doctrinaire, he pur forward land values taxation as a remedy for the evils associated with .laifd monopoly. The proposi tion was adopted as being practic able and effective. On the Governor assuming office he arranged to raise his revenue by the taxation of Land Values, and the colony has steadily prospered under the Single Tax sys tem. AU laud values in the Posses sion are taxed 6 per cent., and if any land be withheld from use an addi tional 3 per cent. Is added every...

Turpinite and Its Terrors. THE .NEW FRENCH EXPLOSIVE. DEATH WITHIN 100 YAKDS. What truth Is there in the reports by cable that the French are tiring a new explosive or such a deadly character that whole battalions of German infantry are found dead in their trenclie3 "standing bolt up right, and still holding their rifles in Gring attitude, as though suddenly petrified?" A gentleman ■who has been known for many years to the editor of the "Daily Epress" (London), and who is generally well informed, has sup plied that paper with some interest ing information on the subject. He writes as follows:— The new explosive invented two years ago by M. Turpin, the parent inventor of melinite and of lyddite —which is merely so named from the fact that the first 'experiments were made at Lydd, in Kent, in pre sence of the French inventor—is un doubtedly the moot terrific and the most widely death-dealing high power explosive ever known. So lethal in its effect is the now shell on explosion that sh...

ANIMALS THAT NEVER DRINK. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 19 November 1914

ANIMALS THAT NEVER DRINK. It would seem that water is so in dispensable to life that no animals could exist without drinking. Never theless, Dr. lilanford asserts that the antelope.-; which live in the sand desert between the salt lake Chilka and the sea never drink. This has been doubted by physiologists, who deny thai existence is possible in such conditions, but confirmatory evi dence is now adduced by Dr. Drake Uroekman. It appears that since 1010 a troupe of gazelles have lived in the small island Saad-ud-Din on the side of Somalilaml, where there is 110 source of water and where the annual rainfall is less than three inches, so that these gazelles cannot obtain water except after very rare showers. The vegetation is very poor and they cannot supplement the lack of water during the dry season by consuming roots and bulbous plants rich in liquid.
