EXPERIMENTS IN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
EXPERIMENTS IN WHEAT. 'The Realisation of the Aims of William J. Farrer, Wheat Breeder,' was the title of a paper read before the agriculture section of the Con gress of Science by Mr George L. Sutton, wheat experimentalist at the New South Wales Government Farm i n ? n -n _i. i ! . .i . i ar oo-vra. 'jrrooaoiy ine most j striking evidence of Farrer's success,' | said Mr Sutton, ?? is the national popularity of the wheat Fedpration. It is unquestionably one of the most prolific grain: varieties in cultivation, and certainly the most popular wheat tn Australia to-day. It pur posely produced to suit the Austra lian method of 'nai vesting with the stripper. No other variety has up to the present been found to give i such uniformly good results iu ull parts of Australia. As the result of Farrer's forethought, Australia could now produce a strong -is well as a white wheat, and she need uot fear the disastrous ctt'ect of the ravages of a rusty season, as she did before Fdire.'s aims were ...

LOCATING SPOTS ON NEGATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
LOCATING SPOTS ON NEGA TIVES. Dark spots on negatives can of ten be remedied more or less effectu ally by the local application of eith er a reducer or of the retoucher's knife or needle, but the success of such measures depends to a large ex tent upon the markings being on the upper side of the film. If they are at the lower side next the glass, it is obvious that they cannot be reached without affecting such im age as may Hie over them. If there is no detail in this image, but simply an even tone, the inequality of dens ity may be remedied ; but, if detail lies above the mark, the case is nearly hopeless, unless we try the somewhat risky method of bleach ing followed by partial redevelop ment and a final fixation. Marks at ine oacK 01 ine mm are or course in all cases due to light reaching the film through the glass. This may be caused by a leak in the dark slide, or by simple reflection from a bright spot on the slide partition or on the partition spring. Mark ings on the face ma...

A WELSH SAINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
A WELSH SAINT. A very, very long time ago there lived a good man %vho was called Saint Kenneth, and this is the story that is told about him. When he was a little baby his father, who cannot have liked him, put him into a little boiat made: like a basket, and then set it off from the seashore to *4 f 4- ah ftiA nrn«tnf- I am sure that the little baby would soon have been drowned in the sea, but a very strange thing happened. A lot of seagulls, which are birds you can see at the sea side, came flying down to the little basket boat, and they took hold of the, baby in their claws, not hurting him in the least, and carried him right away to a ledge of rock where they had their nests. Every day a deer came down to the ledge of rock, and it brought milk for baby! Well, baby was as happy as anybody on that ledge of. rock, when one day a man who tended sheep saw him. So he took him home and put him into a cradle. But the seagulls followed and they carried baby baclTlo the ledge of rock. So ...
HOW HE KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
HOW HE KNEW. 'Speaking of eggs,' said Mark Twain once, 'I am reminded of the town of Squash. In my early lectur ing days I went to Squash to lecture in the Temperance Hall, arriving in the afternoon. The town seemed very poorly billed. I thought I'd find out if the- people knew anything at all about what was going to happen, so I turned in at the general store. 'Good afternoon, friend,' I said to the storekeeper. 'Any entertain ment here to-night to help a stranger to while away an evening?' 'Yes,' he replied, 'Shouldn't be sur prised if there's a lecture on. I've been sellin' the cheapest eggs all day!'
TOO SMART. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
TOO SMART. Joey had been brought up to be punctual — as punctual, that is, as ten-year-old human nature can be. One day him mother permitted him to go blackberrying with some other children. 'But,' she said, 'you must be at home by half-past twelve, in time to get cool and clean before dinner. Now, remember, twelve-thirty, .without fail.' Just as Joey entered the hall on ; . . his return, the clock struck two, and in a foolish fit of rage at being late, Joey flourished the stick he had been using in climbing in the face of the clock. He was iAot quite so far away as he h:/d supposed- He struck the face of the clock, break ing the glass, and scattering it about noisily. In the course of the ensuing ex planations, his mother sternly ask ed : 'Joey, how came you to strike the clock?' 'The clock struck first!' Joey muttered. But the repartee did not save him — his mother told his father that she would not have him growing up so ready of tongue — and Joey took his bread and milk in bed.<...
American Humour. QUIET BUT AFFECTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
American Humour. QUIET BUT AFFECTING. Here is an account of 'A Quiet Wedding' which reads like a story in the ?''Billville Banner' : The father of the bride, who never before had shed a tear, found several of them rolling down his sunburnt cheeks as he came forward to kiss the bride, remarking that she was his 'last babv.' Immed iately several of the ladies began to shed tears, everybody was somewhat excited, and in the slight confusion the writer hereof found himself em bracing a ladv who stood conveniently near, and who proved not to be his wife. He immediately apologised to the lady, and was forgiven. He ap ologised again later to his wife, with no very definite returns up to this date. ' — ' 'Atlanta Constitution. '
LEARNING THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
LEARNING THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. A Frenchman who had been learn ing English was standing near the . picture of a number of ships when he exclaimed: 'See what a flock of ships!' He was told that a flock of ships was called a fleet, ~'and a fleet of sheep called a nock. And tor his further information that a flock of wolves is called a pack, and a pack of thieves is called a gang, and a gang of angels is called a host, and a host of porpoises is called a shoal, and a shoal of buffaloes -is called a troop, and a troop of partridges is called a galaxy, and a galaxy of. ruf- fians is called a horde, and a horde of oxen is called a drove, and a drover of blackguards is called a . mob, and a mob of worshippers is called a congregation, and a con gregation of engineers is called a. corps, and a corps of robbers is* called a band, and a band of locusts is called a swarm, and a swarm of people is called a crowd, and a crowd of gentlemen is called the elite, and a miscellaneous crowd of city fol...

But you should never forget that there is mnre thnn one wnv nf doinc a thin?. ' and that someone else may be able to do it in a way far more clever than you can. Now, I will tell you a story, just to show you what I mean.' One day a gentleman went into a tea-room to have 'a cup of tea. He used to go into the tea-room every day during the afternoon, so that'he ? could; refresh himself by drinking a cap of tea. Every time the waiter man brought to him a ciro of tea, hmrever, the gentiescan saw that he , bad spilt some inlp th? saucer. At last when he was ordering the cup of tea one day, the gentleman said to the waiter man, 'Now, look here my friend. If you can bring me a cup of tea without spilling a single drop into the saucer, I will give you a shilling!' 'Yes, sir,' said the waiter man. So he went to get...
THE ADJECTIVE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
THE ADJECTIVE GAME. Did you ever play the adjective game It is a' very amusing one, and all boys and girls who want a quiet evening game for small parties or to play when a few friends are gathered at the house of one mem ber of a little circle on a rainy after noon will find it well worth trviner. ,_First you ' will provide yourself With a number of small pasteboard cards, on which-to paste adjectives cut at random from i lagazines or newspapers. Old visiting-cards will do for these if you can get enough of «them, and one card may be cut into strips of uniform size, for it is not necessary to have the cards yearly as large as visiting-cards. If you cannot obtain the old visiting-cards, any sort of thin cardboard will do for the mounts, or if you have not ?the cardboard and do not want to buy it, then use heavy paper, the heaviest you. can get, on which to mount the adjectives. Cut the pap er into strips that are larger than the adjectives, about one-third as large as a visiting-car...
FLO'S ANGEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
FLO'S ANGEL. . Flo's mamma has been telling stories ofangels in heaven. Thus it was with visions of white-winged angels that Flo was tucked in her dainty bed. Mamma left the light burning low and went downstairs fo talk with papa. Flo looked out at the window at the stars laughing down at her, and thien something white and tiny fluttered past. Flo was excited. Perhaps it was an angel ! Yes, there it was again, its white wings floating by the window. 'But it is so tiny,' reasoned Flo. 'Maybe it's a baby angel.' In deed, there were two now, and may be whole hosts of baby angels going straight up to the skies, and mam ma must see. In answer to Flo's 'call mamma ran upstairs thinking her baby had been dreaming of angels. But there, sure enough, outside the win dow, hovered two — not angels — but pretty white moths. After her mamma explained to her that moths were the butterflies of the night, little Flo was content to go to sleep. 'Only maybe,' she murmured, drowsily, 'they are really b...
CIGARS IN A HAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
CIGARS IN A HAT. A very unique device for holding cigars' has recently been patented. It consists of a plate of sheet metal formed with bent up cars at inter vals between which cigars may be secured. The plate is flexible, and is adapted to be fitted within the crown of a hat. In order to pro vide for different sizes and shapes of hats, extension pieces are used which make the plate adjustable. This method of carrying cigars about oneTs person is an improve ment on the common method of plac ing the cigars in a case, which is usually too bulky to be carried 'about in the pocket' conveniently.
HOW HEART DISEASE IS STUDIED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 17 January 1911
HOW HEART DISEASE IS STUDIED. In Berlin heart disease is now studied by means of small flames, which are very sensitive to slight vibrations, and show minute pecul arities of the pulse. A wide paper tape is. made to travel over two smoking gas-flames in such a way that two lines of soot are traced on the paper. The gas feeding one flame passes through a special chamber connected with a tube ter minating in a kind of telephone transmitter with very sensative dia phagm, and when this transmitter is placed over the patient's heart the vibrations o? that organ are passed through the gas to the flame. The slight flarings are recorded by the paper-tape. The' characteristics of the heart-beats are shown, and the second flame, vibrated by a tuning fork, gives a time record.
