Rain on Tap. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

Rain on Tap. In scientific circles the claim of Mr J. Graeme Balsillie, the Com monwealth Radio-Telegraphy en gineer, that he can produce rain, is being discused, and the opinion is p.xpressed that if liis discovery is as successful as it is asserted it is, a colossal change in land values will be the outcome. There is also a de fence aspect to the matter which may revolutionise warfare, but the details are withheld for the present. Mr G, II. Knibbs, the Common wealth Statistician, who is a Fellow "Of the Royal Astronomicial Society, and was before his transfer to the Commonwealth, Actiug Professor of Physics at the Sydney University, has been given an outline of the ex periments by Mr Balsillie. He said to-day that he was not in posses sion of the exact details, but the process had been explained to him, and was substantially the artificial production of condensation.

AEROPLANE ON ROOF [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

AEROPLANE ON ROOF Paris has got over being surprised at the sight of - flying machines (says "Lloyd's Weekly News" of January 18), but the population of Javel, a working quarter between the Eiffel Tower and the aerodrome of Issy-les-Moulineuax, got excited last week when they saw an aeroplane plunge downwards over the streets and finally crash on to the roof of a factory in the Rue Saint Charles. There was a rush to the fac tory, for it was feared that the accident was serious, bujt the crowd , were met by the aviator, M. Gilbert, who, quite eaim, and without a scratch, -was de scending the stairs, which he had reached through the hole made in the roof by the falling aeroplane. :M. Gilbert said his engine had failed, lie looked about for a landing-place, but could see nothing but houses, factories, and market garden plots.

St. Patrick's Day. THE COMING SPORTS AND CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

St. Patrick's Day. COMING "SPORTS - AND CONCERT. At Rochester on Wednesday next will ^ ba celebrated the feast of St. Patrick, the patrou saint of Ireland and the apostle of Christianity in the island, and, incidentally, in some other parts of Europe. In the golden age of St. Patrick's time Ireland was the great seat of learn ing and theology, and from it mis sionaries were sent to preach the gos pel, to the benighted ones who were theu pagans in parts which now claim to be the most enlightened on earth. Most other Christian coun tries have their patron saints, such as St. George of England, St. An drew of Scotland, St. David of Wales, St. Denis of France, St. James of Spain, and so on; but the claims of most of them are mythical and owe their origin to the halo of romance. The legend of St. George and the dragon, for instance, is as much a ligment of the imagination as the exploits of King Arthur, Sir Lauucelot and other Knights of the Round Table. In fact in the days of chivalry t...

The following letter from Mrs. Tho mas Brown, of Healesville Vic., will ; prove interesting to many of our readers:— "Some time ago I suffered from a severe attack of kidney complaint. The first symptoms were great weak ness and emaciation -with terrible pain all over my body, especially icross my back. My 'whole- body was racked with pain and I could get but little ease day or night. Medicines were prescribed for me, but failed to do me any good. I cared very little vhat became of me, I was so weak and miserable. I had nearly given up air hope when a friend advised me to try Warner's Safe Cure. I commenced to take it and derived great benefit from taking the contents of the first 'bottle. I continued to take the medicine, getting stronger and 'better every day. I soon regain ed my former strength and energy, the pains all left me, and I seemed to have a new lease of life. I am now quite strong and happy."

NEW YEAR'S DAY CUSTOMS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 March 1914

NEW YEAR'S DAY CUSTOMS It is surprising: how many quaint customs and beliefs concerning New New Year's Day still survive in out jf-the-way places (says "The Westmin ster Gazette"), One of the oldest cus toms, which originated in ancient Rome, is the giving: of presents. This custom flourished at the English Court until the seventeenth century, and still exists in Scotland. A strange belief In some parts of the country is that no washing must be done on New Tear's Day for fear of washing some member of the family out of existence during the ensuing year. From Cornwall come? a superstitition which tells how to ensure a plentiful supply of. money. On New Year's Eve a coin is placed outside upon the window-sill and must not be taken in until the New Year; money will then continue to como in all the year. (It is not advisable to put your coin on the sill of a ground-floor win dow, or money may go out instead of ' coming in!)

I iiave , a very great respect for Mr Bun bury, and hope I can meet the gentle man some day and have him explain the subject to me. I still belirve that those people who want Clause 69 repealed would like everybody to think as they do, as one man. I believe in agitation to gain a point. If the politicians of this country are run in the same kind of mould as tlia Yankee politicians are, they want the people to believe 111 them. Oh, yes, we will do the right thing. Just believe iu us. But do they do it? Not oil your tin type. The common people are prone to forget things, and that is just what the politicians want. ...
