WHEN SMUGGLERS SUP. £60,000 Worth of Diamonds Were Found in a Train Electric Light Bulb. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 March 1930

'WHEN SMUGGLERS SLIP, r£66,0Q9 Worth of Diamonds Were Found in a Train Electric | Light Bulb. | The old-fashioned smuggler -was a figure of romance, landing tubs of liquor at dead of night, while at any moment the pre ventive officers might ride down - on his band over the crest of ' some adjoining sandhill. To-day smuggling is carried out at ;the ? Customs barrier when passen gers disembark from their Chan ' nel steamer.

"BIG BEN." [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 March 1930

'BIG BEN.' i Big Ben, the wonderful 'bell in the clock tower of the British Houses of Parliament, Westminster, Lon don, is becoming still more widely known .now that it broadcasts each day. Each face of the clock is 22i ft. across, each figure on the faces is! 2 ft, high; and the minute hands jeach 14 ft. m length, and weigh 2| i cwt. Eyerytime the minute hand | moves it has to jump a foot! [ The clock is checked twice daily I by wireless with Greenwich time,, [ and, although it is well over 50 years [old, it is hardly ever found to have [varied by a second from the correct i time. The clock runs eight and a half d^ys, requiring about 20 minutes for winding each week, while the strik ing apparatus is wound by two menj three times a week, taking five hours] to wind. It is strange, but noi better way than winding by! hard has yet been dis-j covered. Another curious thing; is that, although electricity has madej such advances, the clock face is still j lit by gas jets, which are placed...

Moisten the broken edge of the china with white of egg, quickly', dust the lime from the bag on it,1 and press the edge together. This cement will set quickly and is not affected by hot water.

LIVING ON WORMS.. But There Are Some Way of Earning Bread and Butter Stranger than This. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 March 1930

LIVING ON WORMS., - But There Are Some Ways of Earning Bread and Butter r Stranger than This. A photograph was published re cently showing a man suspended from telegraph wires by the shoulder-straps of a parachute. His name was Eddie Graf, a pro., fessional parachute-jumper,; he he had jumped from an aero plane at Hanover, New Jersey,, but. instead of landing him safe-, ly, his parachute drifted across the telegraph wires, where he . had to remain till rescued. This recalls another curious pro fessional appearance a few years ago by a mail who earned the title of The Human Rocket. Kis name was Rodman Law; and he accepted the offer of a New York moving-picture firm to be fired into the air from a rocket. Having packed himself into the metal tube of the rocket. Law was discharged through the air to a height of 3,500 feet, from whence he gracefully descended to earth in his parachute, to enjoy the fat fee he had earned by his remarkable 'turn.' Some years ago, at the West Lon don Count...

THE HAT AND THE COAT. STYLES NOT HAPPILY COMBINED. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 March 1930

THE HAT AND THE 5 COAT. - STYLES NOT HAPPILY : COMBINED. t ? - The extremely high roll fur col- ^ lar completing not only many ^ winter wraps, but the short or long coat included in the out door ensemble, does not too comfortably combine with mil- , .. Iinery.. brought down in flounce ?- or pleated form against the back neck. i I The inconvenience resulting from | fashions so conflicting is not appar ent from the study of illustrations of such modes. The coat with hug^ collar almost obscuring the back of the head, and the hat finished with I deep neck-band or frill quite fre quently extending towards the front I throat, appear to be very happily as sociated; but the woman who wears n both knows better. Enaiess friction^ results, and the free movement of - the head is impeded at every turn. You must choose ycur winter coajt^, only after consideration of the milli- - nery with which it is designed to'^ make appearance. It is useless. to_ attempt to blind ourselves to the f-act that ma...

He is then safe until medical aid can be pro cured. This may not be needed if the child seems all right. He should be kept in a warm I ronm, two or three days, and a simple cough - m-dici'e given.

Shifting the Chicks. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 March 1930

Shifting the Chicks. The chicks' bump of locality is well developed. Put them in a newj yard, and, instead of going into the' new house to roost, they will settle down alongside the wire fence, as! near the old house as possible. For! this reason it is necessary to shuti the chicks in the new house for at: least the ' remainder oV thi-'Hav are shifted and the following night,! until the chicks become reconciled, to the. change. On the Government! farms a temporary yard of wire net-; ting on batten frames is erected inj front of houses, where chicks are ] shifted, but if the house is roomy and comfortable — as it ought to be — the chicks may be safely shut in it.

HINTS FOR BREEDERS AND OTHERS. FACTS IN A NUTSHELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 28 March 1930

HINTS FOR BREEDERS AND OTHERS. FACTS IN A NUTSHELL. If the hen was like a parrot and could take leaves of greenstuff in her claws, there would be no need to chaff them. TVia fvflncmifscinn r»f rnnn mo- dium of the drinking water is a well recognised fact. Dry mash hoppers are not free from infection either, and in serious cases of roup it is sometimes best to close the hoppers down and revert to wet-mash feed ing, until the disease disappears. If you have not stopped the leak where the water came in last time it rained, get to it now while you! think about it. ! Fox-ced growth will sometimes [make pullets lay soft-slielled eggs. An occasional soft-shelled e.s^g is not a matter to worry about. Sunflower seeds are not worth growing as food for fowls. Although they contain a lot of flesh-forming and fatty matter and are credited with being valuable to feed in small quantities during the moult; they have hard outer husks which require a lot of digesting and are valueless! and occupy spa...
