(All Rights Reserved.) -T H E II Story of a Strange Exciting Adventure, ? ' ~ ? k-! - By W. Murray Graydon, Author of "Matthew Qoin," "The Curse of the Cardews," etc., etc. PART 9. CHAPTER XXIII. THE TWO TOWNS. During the afternoon there was great excitement and noise in the town, and from a front window Dick watched the motley groups of people 'who passed up ar.d down the street. After dinner Jason. Core came in, aad held a private conversation with Dick. & "Although our laws forbid it," he began, "I am going to give you two more months of grace. At the end of that time you must take the oath of allegiance, or sutler the conse quences of refusal. Meanwhile you will . have plenty of freedom, and can ob serve for yourseh" the sort of life wo lead here." Dick was too prudent to reply to this ultimatum.

THE BURIED CITIES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 24 April 1914

THE BURIED CITIES. (By KEY. EL F. WADDY.) Ait Australian visiting Ceylon ran not but he impressed by the an tiijuiiv and historical romance of much that he conges across there. In his own country he can point to no monument dating back more than a century, whilst in Ceylon the age of everything is counted by th» thousand years "instead of the hundred. One explanation of the Kiant footprint on Adam's Teak takes him hack to the very beginning of the world's history, and if he is sceptical about accepting this/ he is on surer ground when he visits tialle, where for thousands of years (he merchants of the world have come to trade, and if to-day the harbour of Gallo is desert.od for that of Colombo, it is practically certain that (Jalle is the site of the ancient Tarshish. from which Soh'iuon drew many of his treasures.

Why There Ars No Pure Races. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 24 April 1914

Why There Ars No Pur© Races. The old idon was that a race joined in vigour by its purity of strain, savs Dr. Woods Ilut Chili an. This is a delusion, ami the purer, a race strain is the le.ss vigorous the members of the race will he. There is no such thine as a pure race.- livery race on the face 0f the earth has been mixing with others for thousands- of years. The mixing of races adds to vigour, pro vided, of course, the two strains have good blood. There is no such thing as aii "older race." We in Uritain are as old as any people in ? 't-lie world, only under a different environment. Mixing of races is uoing on as constantly all over the world, but more particularly in the newer countries. The regions Where there is the most mixing of races are the regions that produce the .greatest men. There is no known standard of race purity. One race merges s with an other and is related to it, recently or remotely. The mixing going on in America is being worked out under most favourable circ...

THE F A R Rfl . WESTERN WOLTHS GRASS. (Extracted from the Journal of pnrtment of Agriculture.) "A great wealth of forage, 15 tons to the acre, is at present being cut for stock-feed at the Ruakura Farm of Instruction. It is the Westert Wolths grass, a variety of rye-grass said to have originated from a plant plucked by the wayside by a Dutct peasant. At Ruakura it has undoubt edly given the heaviest yield of ai: rye-grasses, making a rapid dense growth and providing excellent spring feed, admirably adapted for cutting and carting put to stock. Sown nn the 1-1 th of May, it was ready for feeding about the beginning of Octo ber.

CORRECTING FAULTS IN YOUNG CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 24 April 1914

CORRECTING FAULTS IN YOUNG ' CALVES. . One of the most difficult habits to overcome; where a number of young calves are running in a loose bt>x is that of sucking one another, writes an English correspondent. There is a wide difference of opinion regarding the results which may occur. Many claim that small quantities of hair "arc taken into the stomach, and this is finally matted into a firm ball, which may clog in the stomach or bowels of the calf, resulting in death. The reason for this habit oi sucking jnay in some measure suggest a re medy. When we feed calves with milk from the pail, they drink so rapidly that they fail to relieve the mouth of the saliva which naturally mixes with the milk, while thej are muck ing. In order to relieve their mouths of the secretion which organs of di gestion demand, they will seek some thing to suck which will rid their mouths of the saliva, which has been retained to a large extent, and their favourite object is some portion of the e.ili nex...

At last he paused. Only-long enough, however, to thrust a card into the lady's hand. The bit of pasteboard was certainly a novelty. "My name is Sellum," it read, "of the firm of "Blang and Company,, sew ing-machine manufacturers, and I in tend to prove to you that it is mad ness to. defer purchasing one of our unequalled machines." After a Jong description of the machine came the following : "You may plead that you are unable to work a machinc. I will remove that.objection in fifteen min utes, or in three lessons. Will call next Wednesday." When the agent called again a six foot man opened the door and bland ly remarked : "You're the sewing-machine man, I suppose?" "Yes ; I called last week, aniV "Yes,.

Airship Travelling. -t I r - Captain C. M. Waterlow, of the Royal Flying Corps, states that a now material liaa recently been dis covered for manufacturing the gas envelope of airships.

The sccret of its in&nufactuio cannot be discoveivd by examination or analy sis, This material, says our author ity, will make tho .airship a feasible commercial proposition as a pas senger-carrying vehicle.
