DYE FOR CARDINAL ROBES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

DYE FOR CARDINAL ROBES. When the Pope nominates a new Cardinal, the new Prince's first task is to order his scarlet robes. The cloth may be obtained in Rome, but] there is only one manufacturer in the whole world. He lives in the an- 1 cient and beautiful city of Aix la Chapelle. The manufacturer's name is Burt scheid. The Cardinal scarlet which is used to dye the cloth for the stage robes is obtained by a special pro cess, of which the secret is jealously guarded by Butscheid, who received it from his father, in whose family it has been a monopoly for three centimes and a half. Attempts to imitate the dye were tried in several European cities in the course of the last three hundred years, but nonej proved successful. So the presentl Butrscheid is preparing a new lot of Cardinal cloth, as ten Princes of the Church have recently died, and the Pope intends soon to nominate their successors. The curious part about the Burt scheid family is that they ai'e intran sigent Lutherans, and th...

WARE SPARKS! Many Precautions are Necessary to Get Fireworks Made for Festivals Without Premature Explosions. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

'WARE SPARKS! Many Precautions are Necessary to Get Fireworks Made for Festivals Without Prer mature Explosions. Fireworks for any festivals are ticklish things to make. They consist largely of two chemicals, chlorate of potash and sulphur. The potash produces the color ed effects wjhich we admire so much, while the sulphur provides the 'bangs.' If these two parts of a firework were brought into contact during manufacture, the results would be disastrous. So the color producers must work in a place apart from the explosion makers, the final blending of the chemicals being carefully done in another department of the fire work factory. The construction of these facto ries has to be most carefully planned, and precautions taken which are. un necessary in an ordinary building. In everyday life you can strike a spark from flint or metal without any fear of the consequences. But ' 'ware sparks' is the motto-vof a fire work factory. No Pockets Allowed. Even so harmless an object .as the or...

BOOK REVIEW THE SEEING EYE. Cornered Poets, by Laurence Houseman. Cape. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

BOOK REVIEW THE SEEING EYE. Cornered Poets, by Laurence House man. Cape. What a brilliant pen is that of Laurence Houseman! That is one's first reaction to his new collection of conversations ('Cornered Poets,' Cape). But one's second is better; for as one thinks over those half hours one has spent, thanks to him, in some of the best company th,e world has ever known, one realises how much warmth of sympathy and real comprehension go to give these pages their living quality. It is easy to be clever at the ex pense of th^ great; we have, of late, had an avalanche of that kind of brilliance; to give not the cold out line of a caricature but the 'warmth of flesh and blood, with the actual tone of the, living voice, as he hex^g, does to Carlyle and Mrs. Carlyle, to dohn Stuart Mill and Mrs. Taylor, to Kea^s, Wordsworth and Charles Lamb, to William Blake, to Robert Burns, to .Ninon de l'Enclos: and to do all this in ' 250 ? ? odd pages—more than cleverness is required for such a feat.

SIRES' PRODUCE STAKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

SIRES' PRODUCE STAKES. The principal attraction was the! Sires' Produce Stakes. The appear ance of the Victorian Axinus was an attraction, and he was made favo rite. Axinus was only a moderate performer in Victoria, but he made a show of our two-year-olds. Some thing appeared to happen to Axinusj at the start, and when the field settled] down lie was at the tail of the 18 starters. Even at the half-mile post .lis prospects looked very poor, as there were about 10 horses in front □I him, but with a great burst of spaed he ran into second place soon after entering the straight, and easily Jei'eated Happy Dream in the run home. It was pleasing to see Adam Skirving win this race, as he was un successful last year with Toussaint. He has also had an unlucky run with Axinus in Victoria. Skirving has been a regular visitor to our State t-or a number of years, and is popu lar with sportsmen here. Axinus put up an ex'ronlienn'K' good performance in winning the Sires' Produce Stakes.

STEEPLECHASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

STEEPLECHASE. 1 Kanton followed up his success at Murray Bridge by taking the Steeple chase. He again gave a good exhi bition of jumping, and showed pace and determination by easily defeat ing a fast one in Bang Bang at the finish. This will bring Kanton into prominence for the Oakbank Steeple chase. After jumping the first , two fences in the Steeplechase, Kanton went to the front. At tne seven furlongs post Mount' Cooper took possession, but Kanton was always going comfortably, and when Bang Bang challenged them Kanton went| on and -easily held his own m the run home. Bang Bang was n**er far back and ; looked to have a chance when hei jumped the last fence 'with Kanton.] but the winner was too good for him and he had to take second place. Huia Park was well back in the field early, but made up his ground well and finished fast in third place.] Meum et Tuum ran fairly well.| He mixed it with the leaders along the back, but, failed to see the jour ney out and finished fourth.

WELTER HANDICAP. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

WELTER HANDICAP. The Cretan jumped away smartly in the Welter, but soon dropped back five or six horses. However, t half a mile from home he was run- 1 ning in behind the leaders, and in I the run down the straight easily held | his own and won with something inj hand. Reg Fuller, the cross-coun-j try jockey, handled the winner with good judgment. Suzumi was always one of the leaders and ran her race out wellj to take second place. Some Scot was a long way back in I the field for most of the way, butj put in a fast run over the last two , furlongs, and just got up in time to secure third money. | Seal Princess was with the leaders; all the way, but finished poorly and! just missed a piace. i Phoenix was always in the picture and finished c-iose up.

HOW THEY PERFORMED. HURDLES. More than usual interest was taken in the jumping events at the Port Club's meeting on Saturday on ac count of Oakbank being within sight. Our Hero, which has not been up long put up a good exhibition in the Hurdle race. Although the opposi tion was weak, the performance of Our Hero was a good one, as the Trafalgar gelding jumped well, and| came home full of running to win very easily. He injured himself dur ing the running, which will prevent^ him from starting at Oakbank. In the Hurdle Race Our Hero went' to the front passing the stand thej first time, and from then on led the opposition a merry dance. He won iii decisive style, pulling up, by eight | or ten lengths. ] Euphrasia was always well placed and chased the leader over the last! mile, but never at any time looked like reaching him. tJ ? ^ Monarch La«l was tailed off early, j but made up a lot of ground andl .finished fast in third place.
