Dogs Distribute Disease. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
Dogs Distribute Disease. -4---e---. Two of the most learned French professors of the Pasteur Institute have issued the following warning: "Beware of your pet dlog." Street dlogs of Marseilles have been found suffering from the dread ful Indian "black pest.': In India this disease usually attacks dogs, and as many as ninety-eight per cent. die from its ravages. The southern parts of Italy and Algeria know the disease under the name of the "Mediterranean pest." This disease does not confine it self to the dogs themselves, but is carried by parasites to human be ings, and, singularly enough, nearly always attacks children from the ages of six months to three years. The child becomes feverish aud nier vous, goes into a decline, and gra dually wastes away. Out of three hundred cases under special study only two per cent. have recovered. At the present. time Great Britain is immune from any danger in this direction, and sufliciently protected against any such likelihood by the complete pr...

RAILWAY ijOMPLAINTS. A letter was published in the "Argus" this week, under the signature of " Indignant," which related to the negli. gence of railway officials on the Heidel. berg line.

Arriving at the first-0am4 e station in ample time for the train, she was unable to get a ticket, owing to their being 4o 94p 1( the booking ofloe, The porter skipped across the line just as the train was steaming into the station. but there was then no time to purchase a ticket, and the lady was taken by the arm and led to a carriage by the porter. " Get it at the other end," was the injunction of the porter, who referred to the ticket with which he was unable to supply her.

The Indomitable Scot. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
The Indomitable Scot. ---+---- A West Country Scot, who had engaged in the manufacture of a certain description of goods then recently introduced into that part of the country, found it necessary,,.. or conjectured .it might be profit- . able, to establish a permanent con nection with some respectable hIouse in London. With this design he packed up a quantity of goods,. equipped himnself for the journey, and departed. Upon his arrival he made diligent inquiry as to those who were likely to prove his best. customers, and accordingly proceed- '. ed to call upon one of the most. -;:i opulent drapers, with whom he re solved to establish a regular cor- ; . respondence. When Saunders enter- ed the shop in question he found it crowded with customers, and the' -": slesma all bustling about, mak- :: ing sales, and displaying their wares to prospective purchasers. Saunders waited wlat he &lt;co??isderi-??--? ed a reasonable time; then in a lull of business laid down his pack, his bonn...
Storage of Tar. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
Storage of Tar. It was suggested by Cr. Rank that it would be as well if the council had first preference on the supply of tar at the gas works. Cr. Coate: If we have storage room, this is a good idea. The President: The Country Roads Board is getting a cart.for the pur pose of carrying tar, and, no doubt, they will let us have a loan of it. Cr. Stonie: The council should pro vide a tar storage, and moved that a storage be found by the council, for use in the future. Cr. Rank: There is ample storage in the gas works; I understand 20,000 gallons can be kept there. Cr. Stone: Last year we were told that the tar was sold, because the gas works had not sufficient storage for it, and we sent our tar to Port Fairv to hbe stored. The motion of Cr. Stone, that the council find a storage place for fu ture use, was carried. Desire tb Retain a Magistrate. The President commented on the 4)kcessful vay in whiich Cr. R~ifik, the past president, had acted on the bench. He thought it would be an ac...
Absence of Lights on Vehicles. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
Absence of Lights on Vehicles. Cr. Price, after substantiating the assertions of the two previous coun cillors, added: Another matter in con nection with vehicular traffic, which needs looking into, is that of efficiefit lights.. It is a rare thing to see a cart after nightfall with a light on it. Any night that you like, you can go on,the Heidelberg Road and find about 50 vehicles without lights; and this number not only includes carts, but nmotor cars as, well. Cr. Rolla'son bore out the fore going statements, and it was decided that immediate action will be- taken, with a view to curbing the anh5yance. Mr, C '* . :k, the assistant'engii neer, dbserved that if all the offenders in respect to furious motoring were fined, as they ought to be, the amount of the' fines would be suffcient-to maintain the road.
Councillor Cites Act. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
Councillor Cites Act. Cr. White's knowledge of Acts and regulations, particularly such as re late to municipal affairs, is profound. On more than one ocasion, ~sce he has been connected with the Hei delberg Council, he has been able to throw light on subjects relating to Acts, which have appeared abstruse, and indeed, councillors have . now learned to be circumspect in treaty with such matters, where Cr. White is concerned. When Cr. Rollason stated at Tues day's meeting that he intended to move at the next ordinary meeting of the council that in the future the re pairs and renewals o the sliire b1ou darybridges shall be at thejoint co1s of all the ridings, Cr. White pointed out that, acording to the Act,, four days' clear notice should have been given of such an gccgupt; he aBd44. that four days' notice he did not get, but he wished not to push his dbjJe: btioi to i?£ fuiirthbt" limits. -- -:

Pithsan at the corner of Heidelberg road and Waverly street, from where a great volume of smoke was seen to be issuing. The firemen were quickly on the scene, and found their work by no means easy, as already the flames had made a strong hold on the premises. Their work was retarded somewhat by the assembly of curious spectators, consisting for the greater part of children, who had set out for. Sunday school. The garage and four rooms connected with it were anmaged, and t-o of the rooms were severely burbned beiore the fire :w~s quelled.

Oil and Wool from Pine Needles. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
Oil.and Wool from Pine Needles. Pine-needle oil is . a product de rived from the leaves of our pines (says the "Scientific American"). It has been extracted for a great many years and is Vell known the world over as a remedial agent against rheumatism and allied corn plaints. It is a volatile, colourless liquid obtained by distillation of fresh needles, young twigs, and one year-old cones of our western and soputhern yellow pines. In order to produce oil of the best quality, fresh green needles must be collect ed during the spring of the year, probably in the beginning of June. Pine-needle pickers go from tree to tree and select the young, thrifty green leaves at the ends of twigs, which yield about 0.55 per cent. of volatile oil, 'Those of old trees, which are1 dry and tough, produce much less and of much poorer qual ity. A number of years ago this.oil was supplied by a number of small stills or ordinary pharmaceutical distil leries. The still itself is a very simply constructed ap...
COUNCIL JOTTINGS. Excessive Speed of Motors. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
COUNCIL JOTTINGS. Excessive Speed Qf M~otors. Soine strong assertions were made at last Tuesday's meeting of Heidel berg Council against the .high rate of spped at which motor cars are accus tomed t running on the Heidelberg Road. All present were agreed,that it was an abuse that needed putting down, and it was mentioned that the police- authorities had been ap- ] proachled beforeon the matter, and though they had given attention to* the subject, their methods were un availing, and, indeed, in some re spects, risible. For instance, a con stable had been placed with a time piece near the Tower Hotel, in a position so prominent that motorists approabing in either direction, could se6 him from halft a mile away, ahd as a result, they merely slowed down until they passed the place. Cr. Stone. in introducing the mat ter, said that not so long ago he saw a motor car travelling on the Heidelberg Road, near Fairfield, at a rate of between 50 and 60 miles an hour. At that particular spot the...

A Temporary Funnel. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
A Temporary.Funnel. The amateur photographer often has some solution which he desires to put into a bottle which his glass funnel will not lit, says the "Photographic Times." The funnel made by rolling up a piece of paper usually allows half of the solution to run down the outside of the bottle, thereby causing the ama teur to be dulibbed a "nmusser." A better- way is to takle. an ordinary envelope andl cut it off as shown.by the dotted lines. Then clip a little off the point,. open out, and you have a finnel that will not give hny trouble.. It is.cheap and you can afford to throw it away when dirty, thereby saving time and wnashing.
Did Ancient Greeks Dance The Cakewalk? [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
Did AncientGreeks Dance The Cakewalk ? Can we, 'in these modern days, claim origi!ality for anything? It seems not, for- even our "cake walk," which most people think was invented in recent years, is now proved to have bean familiar to the ancients. In the ]3ritish Museum can be seen a Greelk statuette of a i lady who, lived 2400.years ago in an i attitude which seems strangely familiar. S"I enjoyed your sermon this morn ing very much," said MIark Twain to a clergyman of his acquaintance. "I welcomed-it like an old friend. I have; you know, a book at home containing every word of it."' "You ;have * not," said the prea cher. - "I -have; indeed," returned the humourist. "Well, send that liook to me. I'd like to see it." 'You shall," Ma'rk T'wain replied. And he sent thc li next -morning an unabridged dictionary to .to he mniris ter
Method of Joining Boards. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
Method of Joining Boards. The amateur wood-worker often has trouble in joining two boards together so that they will fit square and tight. The accompanying sketch shows a simple and effective method of doing this. Secure a board, A, about 12in. wide that is perfectly flat. Fasten another board, B, about 6in. wide, to the first one with screws or glue. Now,placo the board to be joined, C, on the board B, letting it extend over the inside edge about lin. and fasten ing it to the others with clamps at each end. Layb the plane. on its side and plane the edge straight. Place the second board in the clamps in the same manner as the first, only have the opposite side up. If the cutting edge of the blade is not vertical, the boards planed in this manner will fit as shown in the upper sketch. In us ing this method first-class joints can be made without much trouble.
A Monster of the Deep. [Newspaper Article] — Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle — 20 June 1914
A Monster of the Deep. The most formidable and repulsiove creature of the submarine world is the giant octopus, commonly known as the spider-crab. It is master of the scaled and finned things that live in the ocean's depths. It is alike hideous in appearance and habits, and more than one daring coral hunter and pearl-diver has found death in its terrible arms. Thelio spider-crab flourishes and at tains its greatest size in the warm waters of the Japan seas. An adequate idea of the hideousness of the creature's appearance can only be formed by those who have come across the monster in its lair. Its shapd bears a strong resemblance to the familiar spinning insect. The long legs, whicli often exceed forty feet in length, are thickly covered with coarse black hair. The body, often fifteen feet in cir cumference, is also covered with hair, in which barnacles and tiny shellfish make their home. When attacked, the spider-crab exudes an overpowering odour, which permea tes the water -,round...
