A NEWSPAPER WITHOUT TYPE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 30 May 1902

A. NEWSPAPER WITHOUT TYPE. The * Patit Bleu/ a prominent u««o gaper in BruBeels, has made a now -Je- parture in newspaper publishing. During a recent strike of compositors and press men, the 'Petit Bleu appeared without the help of a single coirpoEitor as a richly illustrated sixteen-page paper. The news had been 'set up' on a type writer. Ihe single typewritten sneBwi and pictures were pasted on a large caid board corresponding in proportion t° the size of the newspaper. Then the whole was reduced by photography to the actual size, and from the negative a print was made on a sensitised sheet of zinc. With the aid of nitric acid the typ® and illustrations were etched in, and tha result was a complete solid forme ready for the preSR. ., , The 'Petit Bleu' points wita pride to the success of the new production, and predicts a time when all men of the com posing room will have to look for other work, the papers being printed entirely by the aid ot photography.

POULTRY breeder remarks that ®MLa) he had great trouble with vermin j infesting the fowl houses (com mon to all breeders), so that it-, waB impossible to do any work in the vicinity of their roosts without carrying away some ot the insects. The great remedy keroBene was liberally used over the rousts, and well worked into every . crack and hole ; that killed all that it touched, but those that were not soaffeoted \ became as ereat a nuisance . as before. I Another improvement was niade by - sprinkling a little insect powder in the j nest boxes, and that served to check them . a good deal.

PLANTING BROOM CORN SEED. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 30 May 1902

PLANTING BROOM CORN SEED. A ny good soil capabl* of raiBing a good crop of maize will answer for broom corn. If tho ground designed for broom corn it ' not rich in plant food, then it should be supplied by liberal applications of farm yard manure ; as broom corn requires a good deal of work, it is not advisable to try to grow it on land that will not produce a large yield. The preparation of the ground for broom corn is similar to that for ordinary maize, except that the ground must be in excellent condition ,- all the clods must be broken up, the upper layers of soil must be pulverised and compacted, so that the ground is in the condition of a good garden. When this has been accomplished the seed can bs planted. Being a sub-tropical plant it is naturally somewhat delicate and easily injured by cold weather, A few days before the plant is expected to appear above the ground, the field should be gone over with a weeder or a light smoothing harrow; and. that operation may be re peated...

Uncommon Accident* One of tho most uncommon accidents of the present day happened | to Mr. J. Border one day last week. In j olden days it was rather a common oc currence for a man to be ' hugged ' or dours severely injured by kangaroo, but in Inter days it is seldom indeed such things come to light. It appears that ono day In st week, Mr. Border being out in one o{ tho paddocks his dogs took after a large grey kangaroo aud after an oxciting chase bailed it up. Mr. Border was soon on tho fccoue. and seeing that the ' boomer ' was keeping the dogs off without trouble, he deicded upon taking a hand. Grasping a stick family he rushed at his 'roosliip, but unfortunately the stick broke and tho 'roo had it all his own way. After hugging Mr. Border most affectionately and scratching him severely he loosened his hold when Ma ilorder realizing his dangerous position cli^Muirl flirAiiivll lllQ ni'lllS and lay ilut on ihe ground.

Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 30 May 1902

Varieties. A common house fly has 16,000 eyes. Over 30,000 inquests are held in Eng land and Wales every year. There are close upon 2 000,000 domestic servants iu Great Britain, and their earnings amount to .£70,000,000 sterling annually. In trim lihrnrir nf thi Rnltl.l, the books that are purchased are red in colour, those that are presented are yellow, and copyright works are bound in blue. The tinder box and flint are by no means to be accounted things of the past. Their manufacture iB still carried on in the village of Brandon, on the borders of Norfolk aud Kuffolk, a large demand for this primitive form of lighting being created by hot, damp climates, where matches cannot possibly be kept. A return recently published of the average time occupied by shipi in passing through the Suez Canal illustrates in a marked manner the value of the electric light aB, a saver of time and money. Without tbe light the journey is accom plished ia thirty-one and half hours. With it the time is re...

A HONEYMOON. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 30 May 1902

A HONEYMOON. A gentleman who was married in India a shoit time ago had a somewhat peculiar experience during his honeymoon. H® took his newly-acquired bride away to a houee situated oh t.he Nobudda river to spend the opening month of their married life, and the company ttiat met iiuam. au their first breakfast was not quite the kind a bride expects to welcome her. The meal iu question was laid on a verandah overlooking the river, and no sooner did the servants begin to place the crockery on the table than a large number of monkeys began to assemble from oil directions, and noiselessly took up their places on the verandati. Naturally, when the husband called to his wife, who was dressing, that breakfast was ready, and they were all awaiting for her, she was quite perturbed, more especially as she expected they were going to be alone. Imagine her surprise when she came down to fiod all the available space around the table occupied by monkeys, who sat as grave and silent as possible. D...

TOADS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 30 May 1902

TO AD 3. The electric-light is proving a godsend to the whole family of toada. They very easily learn where to fijd their food supply, and frequently Btation themselves near a light where inBects striking the class become momentarily stunned, and fall flattering to the ground. IV is related that in a certain locality eight large toads are in tho habit of col lecting under an arc light. The flies and other insects that strike against the glass globe furnish them a full and savoury meal, which they evidently enjoy. The food is captured by the extensive tongue, which is covered wHh a glutinous coat ins. The rapidity with which the tongne is protruded and d rawn back is such that unless thu litfht is (.ooa sna ^ . favourable, it is impossible to see the act of capture. Their sense of locabty is very Btrong, and although they move about and wander some distance from tneir homes, they are certain to return to them. Some yeatB ago a large stump with about six feet of tree trunk attached to...

POETRY A DOUBLE SYMBOL. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 30 May 1902

POETRY A DOUBLE SYMBOL. ' Sweat Lauralee,' I whispered low, And paused with beaded knee, ' This golden circlet I bestow, For true love's eake on thee. Pray cherish it, and wear it, sweet, TTtxin thv snowv hand. And thus in Cupid's fair retreat Imprison this fond band. Cast not thy starry eyes upon The jewels gleaming there, For those proud rabies blnsh, dear one, To find themselves less fair. Respeot the message it would bring, The symbol it doth lend, For, like my love is thu fair ring, In that it hath no end.' I marked the blood-red roses fling Their bLoom athwart her cheek. The while I held the dainty ring And knelt to hear her speak. Dream-shadows in a timid race Danced in her tender eyes, And smiles stole o'er her fairy face, SLethought, of sheer surprise. At last she spoke, nor longer mused, While breathlessly knelt I. By love's powerful thrall enthuaed, To list for her reply. ' My heart is frosty cold,' said she, ' And hardly worth the winning ; This ring is like my love for ...

No. 3 I flavour with raspberry and oolour with cochineal. Into No. 1 1 grate the rind ot a lemon and squeeze ia enough juice to make it into a stiff paste.
