INDIA AND CEYLON ADAM'S BRIDGE [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

OIA AND CEYLON ADAM'S BRIDGE (By a Correspondent in "The Daily Toleyruph.") Of all tli o bridges of the world Adam's Bridge. between India and Cey lon, which is not a bridge at all-and never has boon-is the most famous; and now the strait is really going to be spanned-not yet, but some day soon. And meanwhile the ends of the steel rails will dip down within sight of each other, and ferry boats will plough backwards and forwards, and the misery and sea-sickness of the long sea journey between Colombo and Tuti corin will be a thing of the past. On February 21 the two ends will lie for mally opened by the Governors of Madras and Ceylon. Kxcept in the very centre of the strait, where the larger coasting ships can-but very rarely do-go, there arc no great engineering difficulties. The piers move on from stepping-stone to stepping-stone, small seaweed-grown throws of dark rocks for the most part, clear-but only just clear-of the high est tide. But it. would make little dif ference to mode...

THE CURSE OF RESPECTABILITY [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

THE CURSE OF RESPECTABILITY Respectability to-day is the chief concern of the human race, and mar riage is the matrix of respectability. Respectability is an attempt to rod ace all life to a simple conventional for mula. It merges the contracts of life. It is an antidote to romance, for it limits one's activities in nearly every line of human endea vor. It requires us to read certain books, to see certain plays, to dress after the prevailing fashion, to avoid certain topics of conversation. It forces upon us engraved cards and frock coats, the novels of William Dean 1-lowells and the portraits of Sargent. It turns our minds from the important things of life to the creases in our trousers and the wings of our collars. It focuses the brains of the nation on unimportant details of philology. It limits a man to one wife, and raises his barber to a dizzy pinnacle of importance. Should the barbers go on strike to-morrow, ifi a week's time we should lose much of our respectability our hair...

COLONIAL DEVELOPMENT [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

COLONIAL DEVELOPMENT Professor II. Bonn, of Munich Uni versity, read an interesting' paper to the Royal Colonial Institute last night on "German Colonial Policy." Viscount Milner presided (.says "Tho Daily Tele graph" of January 14). and in the course of a short speech compared the relative positions of Germany and Eng land in relation to Colonial policy, and pointed out how their common interests might be advanced. Professor Bonn said that Germany ruled a Colonial Empire five times as big as the Fatherland, with about 14 million natives. Shi: ruled them nut always very wisely and not yet very effectively everywhere; but sho ruled them without very great efforts. She had, of course, wasted money occasion ally. She had had an extremely costly war in South-West Africa on which about ,£20,000,000 was spent. There had ha fit native risings and extremely silJy European settlement schemes, but everything taken together (war costs, loans, etc.) the total expenditure for the last 12 years h...

GREASY HEELS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

QREA8Y HEELS IN HORSES. By G. Heslop, H.V.Sc., in the "Journal of Agriculture." Grease is a term used to denote a dlseasce condition of the skin and eirbcutaneous tissues situated at the back of the fetlock joint. It 19 char acterised iby the production of vesi cles and pustules, which exude a par ticularly evil-smelling greasy dis charge, and which, as the disease pro gresses, brings about the formation of numerous wart-like excrescences, commonly referred to as "grapes." This condition of "grapes" is similar to that produced in a wound where there is an excess of granulation tis sue (proud flesh). The tissue has a plentiful blood supply, and if injured bleeds freely. It thus acts as an irri tant, retarding healing, and assists in the continuance of the disease by forming ridges and furrows over the affected surface, in which greasy dis charges accumulate. Grease can be divided into two stages: - (1) Where there is a formation of vesicles followed by pustules, which finally rupture...

WORKER FOR LABOR ADVOCATE OF ARBITIRATION [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

WORKER FOR LABOR ADVOCATE OF ARBITlRATION It. is unusual to find a man within a little of hi.s eigtitict.h birthday whose life has been one of labor intent upon new plans by which he may be bur dened with duties to take the place of larger affairs that he is now hardly .strong enough to carry (says "The Daily News and Leader" of January M). That was the task a "Daily News" visitor found Mr Robert Applegarth, the veteran reformer, trade unionist, and educationist engaged upon yesterday. "Bob" Apple-garth will never retire from the trade union movement* Dur ing the last dock strike- this little, frail man was looking after the wounded. He was asked by a famous leader to speak on Tower Hill on one occasion, and went there to do so. But the memory of the stricken back streets overwhelmed him, and he could not speak. Such is his sympathy. IN THB FOREFRONT ! Robert Applegarth is one of the greatest figures in the history of trade unionism and of the working class movement. He has been in ...

NAVVY MISSION "The breaking-strain comes in a month. They then go into the town 1 and blow their stake, hitting the high I spots and getting tanked up. . . ." | The interviewer - a "Daily News" representative - flew signals of distress and a paraphrase -was conceded.

THE FIRST PEN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

THE FIRST PEN. In any largo city, in tlio same block, possibly in tin; sumo building, can be found in use to-day the first type of pen and the latest. A lino hair-brush was (lie lirst instrument used by man for writing purposes. The Chinese laundryman of to-day marks his tickets and keeps his ac counts with a camel's hair pen dipped in i(jk. Next door probably is a white merchant who uses the latest make of steel pen. Between the two, in the long his tory of the pen, came the reed, then the tjuill. Steel pens are almost in universal use now, and are made by the ton and in increasing volume every year. Confucius used a hair brush for a pen, and his ancestors for thousands of years before his time. The reed came .into use for writing In ithe marshy countries of the Orient. It was hollow and, cut in short lengths, with sharpened ends, it was some im provement on the hair pen. The value of the quill was discov ered at an early date in the history of civilisation, and its use spread from...

ANIMALS' SPEED. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

ANIMALS' SPEED. No animal is known to have exceed ed the speed attained - by the horse. Instantaneous photographs of one fa mous specimen showed the full length of one complete stride of about 26ft. In the stride of the fastest racerB the hindquarters and limbs are raised con siderably higher than the shoulders, and from this relatively great height brought downward and forward, wide ly separated from each other, to avoid striking, the forelegs. The hare has not in reality the speed of the dog. The dog, on the other hand, does not attain the speed of the horse. The giraffe is said to run at the rate of fif teen yards per second under t}ie most favoraJble conditions.

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. According lo Macdonald, a Scotch naturalist of wide repute, the turtle is (he strangest of all living tilings and the most unfathomable. He can live in the water as well as out of it, and can seemingly go for indefinite lengths of time without air or food or light. He is neither iisii nor ilesli nor fowl, artil yet lie has the characteristics of ail three. As for his eating, it seems rjuite superfiouous, for he can remain shut up in a barrel for a. number of v/ceks and emerge at the end of the time apparently none the worse for the Jack of food and light and air. The baby turtle seems aJso just as indifferent to its surroundings as its parents are. As soon as it comes forth from its egg it scuttles oil.' to the sea. Jt has no ono lo teach or guide it. Jn its b.rain seems implanted the idea that until its armor becomes hard it Jias no defei.ee against hungry fish, and so it seeks shelter in gulf weed and feeds unmolested until its armor gets hard. By the t...

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness, [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness, ?Tilore arc few people responsible for more harm in the world than tile : thoughtless person; and his pica, when the damage is done, "I didn't mean to," or "I didn't think," is poor consolation to those who have suffered from his tlumghtless act. When, forty years and more ago, an old woman of Chicago left a lighted lamp in dangerous proximity to the heels of a cow, she little dreamt, we may he sure, what appalling results would come from such a simple act of thoughtlessness. Tiie fire which was started 'by that over-turned lamp in the Chicago cow-shed swvpt in tor rents of devastating flame over the city, and before the last ember was quenched it had reduced to charred ruins three and a-half square miles of streets. More than 17,000 build ings were destroyed, two hundred lives were sacrificed in the inferno of fire, !)8,500 persons were rendered homeless, and damage was done to the extent of £38,000,000. In Kansas there a...

THE FISHERMAN AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

THE FISHERMAN AT HOME. Dear father took a fishing trfp. He has rheumatic pains And various symptoms of the grip, lie never once complains. Far life at present seems to hold All joy that he could wish. He nearly caught a fish. He.doesn't mind a little cold. Me tells about it while we stand And stare with wondering eyes. It nearly chewed off father's hand, So fearful was its size. It winked at him and tried to sing, And -waved a fin in play. It did a .hornpipe and a fling And then it swam away. In museums I have stood around And viewed the monsters o'er, Which in the ages past were found Disporting near the shore. These curious creatures arc for me With scant importance fraught; But, oh, the fish I long to see That father nearly caught!

THE LIZARD-BIRD "A NEW CHAPTER OF EVOLUTION." [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 1 April 1914

THE LIZARMiRD NEW CHAPTER OF EVOLU TION." Some hope of finding a missing link between two animal kingdoms, the bird and the wingless quadruped, is entertained by those now beginning a microscopic investigation of a part of the booty of the Scott Antarctic ex pedition. A wonderful scries of pen guins' eggs, in every state of incuba tion, was secured, and was sent to Cambridge University. The work of Inspection has just begun, and is at tended with no little excitement of the scientific sort (according to "The Daily Mail"). As appears on the very page of Captain Scott's diary now opened at the British Museum, the five weeks' expedition in search of the penguins was heroic in the fullest sense of the word. The three men, Dr. Wilson, Lieutenant Bowers, and Mr Cherry Garrard, set out in the continuous darkness of the winter. They were caught by a blizzard, lost their tent for several days, and only discovered it, along with their own safety, by a . happy chance. No naturalists' ex pediti...

Mr Green (who is also a member of the County Coun cil) said he did not care who was re sponsible, the charge is iniquitous. Nindly per cent, of those summoned for fates were poor people. In Chelsea, Kensington, and a number of other places the cost was only 1/. The Court refused to order the defendant to pay the cost.
