MODERN HORSES FASTER AND BETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

MODERN HORSES FASTER AND BETTER. It is quite a pleasure to read of a| veteran trainer who does not believe, that the horses of his youth were in-] finitely superior to those of the pre-j sent day, or contend that s ayersj were more numerous when the re-j cord for a Melbourne Cup was 3.27 £ | would not give any horse the: slightest chance of success. r'. Tilley, one of New Zealand's | successful trainers, who has been in: the game for over 50 years, has no I illusions on the score ot the old-time] racehorse. I While allowing that tracks have improved, he does nqt .think that many past champions would now win 'under the weight they success fully carried in their day. In private, as well as public, times are faster. In this connection Tilley mentioned that in his long experience of Riccarton (Christchuch) 2.39 was the best on the outside of the course proper for a mile arid a half until, Chide did 2.37. 1 Chide easily won the Cup in i-ecord time for the race. In his work Chide also ran...

Clean Water Tins. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

Clean Water Tins. ^ Many earnest backyarders areMior rified when they hear that driiJking tins are not actually cleaned out daily on poultry farms. But with clean water a good rub out of each tin once weekly, or twice at most is suf ficient; during the other days it is only necessary to see that the tins are full and have no extraneous mat ter in them. A piece of coarse sack ing is superior to a brush for cleans ing out drinking vessels. In many breeds the cock show* signs of ag-e before the hen.

FILMLAND. Did you know that Gloria Swan son left the old Essanay Company; in Chicago and came to Los Angeles, j not for continuing her career in i motion pictures, but for the purpose ! of studying under a noted vocal ill- 1 structor for a grand opera career? i That Edmund Goulding wrote 'The !

D'ANNUNZIO AT WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

D'ANNUNZIO AT WORK. | Certain Italian journals recently: tried to scatter about rumors on the subject of D'Annunzio's declining mental powers. Mr. Henry Bordeaux, member of the French Academy,1 went to Gardone at once to see the' poet, and found him ' full of 'zest and spirit, bubbling over with vital ity and new plans.' j When M. Bordeaux reached the. famous villa, D'Annunzio had just; finished a complete overhaul of the] interior. _ With a collection of new; carp'et, just arrived from .Persia the poet had done marvels of ar rangement. Personally he had stained 1 and colored the walls of his refee-i tory, library, and salons to match j the hue of the tapestry. His art1 treasures he had re-arranged, so that! M. Bordeaux thought himself 'inj one of those enchanted places ofj the Orient flowed into the West.' D'Annunzio's collection of sculp ture, paintings, wrought metal and gold and silver is one of the finest in a country where such things are not by any means lacking. Thou sands o...

MORE " HOWLERS" [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

MORE 'HOWLERS.' Some amusing 'howlers,' culled' from examination papers of boys at the school, are given in the current issue of the magazine of Ardingly College (Sussex), England. Asked to describe the character of Edward VII. one boy wrote, 'He was a fat| man. who changed his trousers every day and loved foreign travel.' Others taken from the collection are: — This story is aboriginal. 1 What is tepid water? — Water that comes from the tap. The judge asked the deceased if he had anything to say. The plural of mouse is mouses, and of grouse grice. A thermos flask is used for making carbon dioxide. I do not think that Elizabeth should have been called Good Queen Bess, because if she had been good she would not have drunk a pint of beer for breakfast every day. Hydrochloric acid is passed though a thistle funeral. - Of Cromwell one boy wrote : — 'Cromwell was a very sturdy man. In battle brave and daring.

IF THE DREAM WAS TRUE. A family, consisting of father, mother, son, and a cat, all dreamed^' one night that they had lost their knees. On awaking in the moonlight the illusion was so perfect that they thought they really had lost their knees, and began a discussion as to what they were going to do about it. The father said: 'I'll go to Africa where the negroes.' (knee grows.) Mother said: 'I'll, go to the mar ket and get some sheenies.' (she knees.)

THE PRINT ON THE PANE The Silent Shot-Revenge at Last-Proof Positive [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

THE PRINT ON THE PANE ? w BY FREDERICK C. DAVIS The Silent Shot— Revenge at Last Proof Positive Above Nichols a sheer -wall of brick, the rear side of the Grand Hotel, rose blackly toward a star sprinkled sky. An iron fire 'escape hung from the wall, ending in a low, hjnged ladder. Four stoyers above, directly behind a platform of the fire escape, a lighted window gleamed into the darkness. As the watcher saw it his eyes narrowed to slits. He lost no time. He gripped the ladder, swung himself up and crouch ed unseen on the lowest step of the fire escape. Stealthily ascending the ladder, he passed the first, se cond, third platforms. As he gripped the rungs leading to the fourth floor his heart thumped heavily. He touched a bulge at his hip and knew that his gun was still safely in place. Breathing quickly, with sup pi-esed emotion, he carefully ascend ed the last ladder. His objective win dow was open. As he slowly raised his head over the edge of the plat form a rumble of thunder s...

How to Hold a Fowl. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

How to Hold a Fowl. When a number of chicks or grown fowls have to be shifted by carrying, it is impracticable to carry them in an orthodox way; it is then a matter of how many may be carried in each hand. When there are several to I carry a coop or box on a barrow isl best. The right Way to hold a iowl I is with the breast resting on thej forearm, the legs being held between 1 the fingers of the same hand.

Note the Egg Cycles. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

Note the Egg Cycles. ) It is well known that fowls do not] lay an egg every day. Some record 1 hens may lay 30 or more eggs with the break of a day; but the ordinary layer averages any number in her cycles from, say, 1 to 20, with cor responding breaks of varying num bers of days between. The shorter the period of missing days, however, between the cycles of eggs in the) hen's and cock's dam, the better the flock average of their pullet progeny; will be. For instance, a hen 'only missing one day between each-four to seven eggs will breed much better stock than one laying 18 egg|, and missing 14 to 21 days before! she starts again.

NOISELESS MOTOR BIKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

NOISELESS MOTOR BIKES. 'Noisy, nasty, and a beastly nui sance' — that was the unkind criti cism of the average motor cycle made the other day; and made by a gentleman connected with the motor cycle industry. All this, however, is now to be changed. A new motor bicycle han just Deen launenea wnicn is saia 10 be as silent and as comfortable- at a motor car. This new model ha« been designed by a former winner of the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy Race, who has over 30 years motor cycle experience, and scientific testa have proved that it makes 60 per cent, less noise than any other motor cycle in use at present. The launching of this new model is specially interesting owing to, the anti-noise campaign whieh has-been in progress for some time. Specially noisy motor cycles may now set their towner into trouble at court, and if the new machine catches on, the standard of quietness will probably become still higher. This may be hard lines on owners of old models, but it will certainly make lif...

PILLS AS CROWN TREASURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 March 1930

PILLS AS CROWN TREASURES. French jewellery experts who re cently went to Persia on the invita tion of the S i -h -.o v?.iue the crown jewels and other royal treasures, found that certain stones and gems surpassed anything that has ever been known in the West. The havs at tempted to set a price on some of the diamonds would have amounted' to pure folly, they report 'id. In the course of their examanitien and studies of the treasure hoard they came upon stacks of boxes, lined against one of the wulls of a cellar, which contained fine crystal phials with colored water, as'' they thought filled with small white pel lets. Pearls, no doubt, they thought. The surprise of the experts can be imagined when, upon looking a little closer, they found the names arid ad dresses of Parisian pharmacists on the phials. The white pellets were nothing ipore than pills. It appeared that one of the Shahs, 50 or 60 years ago, made a journey to France. The Shah saw a de luxo showcase in a chemist's window'...
