CHILD DOES THINGS BACKWARDS MISPLACED HRAFiT AND T-H1ATX. After recent dlsolnsuros of start linglv unusual children who write and see things upside do\i*n (savs the •'Dally News") now conics the story of a twelve-year-old Birmingham girl who has had an uncontrollable impulse to "do things backwards." Her education has mado little pro gress owing to this strange perverse ness. which has sometimes Impelled her to write from right to left. The doctors conjectured that there was some physiological abnormality, nnd the X rays have now disclosed the secret of the child's eccentricities. When the rays were applied it way found that the heart was on the right side of the body, and that other or gans. including the brain, were mis placed.

District News. BOLWARRAH. BOLWARRAH, February 20 [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 February 1914

District News. BOIjVV AlUt AH. Bolwarrah, February 20 Tlie Melbourne ai:d Ballarat press for the last three weeks liave repeat edly announced the opening of work at the new reservoir, finally that it was to be commenced on Monday last, and about a hundred would be put ou. Well, on Monday, six men I were put to work, and scores turned away. Every day scores more have applied with the same result. Who is to blame for the disappointment of seekers after work ? I think that the said press should be a little more particular in their notices, and not lead so many hard-working tueii on fruitless errands.

APPLE EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 February 1914

APPLE EXPORTS. Fruitgrowers, who export apples to Europe, will be inteiested in some sta tistics compiled by Mr Thos. "Walker, regarding the aotual results of shipments mado last season from-Tas mania, under tho private marks of individual orohardiuts. Tho opera tions of 20 small growers, ranging in quantity from 111 to 803 cases, and aggregating 6400 cases for tho season, gave a net return on Hobart wharf of 0/10 to 9/9 per caso. Sixty seven other growers exported between them 82,(165 and their individual average net re turn for the season on Hobart wharf ranged from 3/9 to 5/9 per case. It must bo remembered that Tasnianian apples as a rulo do not sell in Europe at such high prices as tboso Jrouj tho main land of Australia. This evidence tends to show that small lines of weU Boleoted and oarefully-packed apples realiso more money than tho same class of. fruit in large quantities. Buyers apparently are prepared to pay a con siderable premium to secure, the whole of any choice lots ...

NOISELESS CITY STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 February 1914

NOISELESS CITY STREETS. There is coming iuto use in Germany a cheap and ready method c/ asphalting a stone-paved street which u yi owing good results. The space bjiu-.-cu pav ing blocks are cleaned out to the depth of about an inch, and then a layer of melted asphalt is flowed over the street surface, tho depth of the layer being about one inch. Before it is cooled, sand is sprinkled on and the surface is smoothed. At Frankfort a section of this kind is now laid, and it appears to stand tho wear remarkably well. Should the method prove a success m general practice it will afford an exool lont means of deadening the noise of city traffic at a small expense. It is quicklv carried onfc, and it need not stop the circulation on narrow streets for any. length of time. Moreover, reoairu are easily made.

SHORT SENTENCES BILL TO DIMINISH THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 February 1914

SHORT SENTENCES BILL TO DIMINISH THEM. Speaking last night at the annual dinner of the County of London Ma gistrates' Club (says "Hie Dally News" of December 5), Mr M'Kcnna said that in the coming Session of Par liament he hoped to carry through a measure which would have nothing controversial about it. Ho expected that the Administration of Justice Bill would meet not merely with the approval of both recognised par ties, but even with the approval of the recognised cranks. (Laughter). They hoped by an amendment of the admin istration of justice to deduce tho num ber of prisoners. "We hope," he continued, "to get rid of many of the short sentences. Short sentences should bo avoided. They do nobody any good. They are very ex pensive to the State, they are per fectly useless to tho victim of them, and they don't jirotect society." A hardened and determined criminal must get a long sentence, and the dis cipline and the conditions of work which he would learn—useful work would enable hi...

PAMPERED ANIMALS PI«S MANICUHito.

The remarkable maimer in which candidates for Smithfleld honors pre pare for their ordeal is disclosed in the following Interesting article;— MAKING A CHAMPION. Townsmen who go to Stnithfield to see their prime beef or bacon in the ori ginal seldom Rive much thought to the care with which the beasts on show are selected and fed.
