Houses Without Nails. In Alberta, Canada, there is a vil lage of houses \vhich have lx;en con structed without nails. As a mat terof .fac-t, little or no hardware of ar.y character has entered into their construction. These houses have beon built by Ruthenian immi grants, and ,their architecture is quite novel. .Their first attempts at house-building- are usually of the kind they had been accustomed to over in .Europe, and their lmild ings are of, the typical Ruthenian style-log, pitch-roofed, thatched, and wide in the eaves. In many cases these buildings are put up without a dollarTs worth-of hard ware. Even the door, an affair of slender twigs woven and laced to gether, swings on home-made hin ges Rnd is latched with a wooden hasp. The llooi* is of hewn logs, un nailed. The roof, as the favourite! Russian roof always is, is a won derful fabric of poles and cross poles, through and over which has been woven wheat. straw, ten in ches thick, packed tight and solid, and laid with such...
Fishing Tales. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 17 April 1914
Fishing Tales. A Among the most interesting con tributors to Mr. F. G. Aflalo's book of fishing stories is Lord Des borough, who relates sonic, remarkable facts regarding tarpon fishing. The tarpon, a fish which sometimes reaches ti length of over 7ft., and may weigh as ranch . as -2101b., has peculiar jumping propensities, and if one happens to jump on to a fisherman, or even unto the boat, the conscqucnces may be disagree able. Lord Pesborough says that the most exciting and exhausing fights ha ever had with tarpon were with three fish ho hooked exact ly in the middle of the back. How they managed to get hooked in that spot is not easy to determine, though the experience is fairly com mon, it appears. Lord Desborough's last fish in Florida was a gigantic shark, which seized a 1001b. tarpon that he was playing, and, having swallowed it, got hooked itself. As an illustra tion oC tlio great strength of a har pooned devil-fish,; his lordship relates that it makes light of dragging a s...
