FATAL AMBITION NOBLE AMBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 February 1914
z jemzA 'ATAUi ~AMIBITION--NOBUL SAMBITION. BY'PASTOR RUSSELL. Text: "Who, being in the form of God, lid not mediate a usurpation to be on an iquality with God, but [contrariwise] made himself-'of no reputation, and took upon aim the form of a servant." Whoever has no ambition has not pro )erly begun to live. Ambition implies ap preciation of the value of life-a fixed de lermipation of will in favor of the goal de tided upon. Parents arid teachers should tim to lift noble ideals before the mental rision of the young, and to assist them in letermining which goal they will bend 'ife's energies to reach. To such parents ind teachers many of those successful in life refer in terms of endearment, declar ;ng how much they owe to those who thus assisted them to a noble ambition. As we learn to observe other people, wi. perceive that many are wholly without am bition; or that their ambitions are so trival-as not to be of real benefit. In a crowd of a -thousand people less than a hundred sho...

FRUIT GROWING IN CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914
FRUIT GROWING IN CANADA. The Canadian Minister of Agriculture is causing a special inquiry to be made into the fruit-growing industry of Can ada. The investigation will be con ducted-with a view to seouring the best and most reliable information, respect ing the area and extent of land adapt ed .to fruit growing in the province, and the varieties of fruit, which have been found to be most profitoable and most successful in each locality; the tendency towards concentrating on the production of standard varieties on a large scale, and the facilities for dis tributibn and marketing.

FERMENTATION IN PAPER-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914
FERMENTATION IN PAPER MAKING. Among the recent improvements in handling paper-making materials is a process for extraoting the starch from cotton rags that are used in making linen papers. Practicallt all cotton oloth has some kind of a filler, and much of this is starch. In clippings from new cloth there is .a. considerable :amount of starch filler. It was the practice formerly to soak the -rags in warm water, and then to boil them in an alkali solution. But the effect of the alkali on starch is very slow, as it causes the starch to swell up, so that the solution reaches the inner part of the starch grains only nwith dilficulty. Malt is added in the proper amount to convert the starch into a soluble sugar which readily dissolves out of the fibre of the cloth and leaves it free of the filler. The active principle of the malt is the "enzymes" that attack the staroh just as they do in the brewing process, and convert it into a form of sugar that is easily disposed of.
NOISELESS CITY STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 10 February 1914
NOISELESS CITY STREETS. There is coming into use in Germany a cheap and ready method of asphalting a stone-paved street which is showing good results., The space between 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, the 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 the wear remarkably well. should the method prove a success in general practice it will afford an excel lent means of deadening the noise of city traffic at a small expense. It is quickly carried out, and it need not stop the circulation on narrow streets for any length of time. Moreover, repairs are easily made.
