A Seat Round a Tree. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 1 May 1914
A Seat Round a Ire®. b~-« There 'is certainly no more desir able position for & seat in tho open air than under the spreading foliage of a large tree, and the purpose c«' this article and tho ac companying drawings is j-o show a simple method of fitting up a. suitable bench with the minimum of labour. The sizes must depend en tirely on the tree it is intonded to encirclo ; but tho principle in volved will remain exactly the same. A SEAT ROUND A THEE. First of all the surface immedia- ! tely round tho base of the trunk should' bo made up approximately level, and a number of uprights bedded firmly: in the ground .by j means of long tarred ends. - They need to stand about 14 in. or 15 in. high, and may be or any reason- j able size from 2in.,_by Sin. up- j wards, or ' unwrought sections of ? stout branches might be employed.

They are fitted with 1G-1 cylinder horizontal" petrol engines, of 'the Vickers. pattern, which dc-.j velop 75.0. horse-power.

Which End of a Post Should be Up? [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 1 May 1914
^hich End of a Post Should be Up ? -r It is a very common belief among farmers that' a post .yill last longer if set in the ground the reverse of the way it grew in the tree, in other words, with the butt-end up. Accordingly, one sees many posts, especially end and gate posts, with tho small end down. The supposi tion Is that sap in a true is al ways ascending, or at least that it is easier for the sap to go up than down. Consequently, it is argued, turning' a post upsido down tends to prevent the rise of water, helps to keep tho wood dry, and, there fore, renders It less liable to decay. As a matter of fact, sap or water can flow iu either direction with equal facility and tho popular no tion to the contrary is incoxTect. Careful experiments on the r.elativo durability of post timbers have been made by the Ohio ^Agricultural Ex periment " Station (says the "Scien tific American!') and the above ques tion- was'considered. One fence in particular contained . 156 black / lo cust. post...

Countess Russell Warns 'Black Magic' Dabblers. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 8 May 1914
Countess Russell Warns 'Black Magic' Dabblers. ?» COUNTESS RUSSELL-.) I have long been aware of the con sequences that may affect the ??'thoughtless and cureless sitter at seances, who, longing for a new experience, recklessly joins a number of people bent on receiving some messages from the other side. I do not profess to explain the phenomena that occurs, neither do I affirm that the dead manifest them selves ; but I "know that some power is developed at such a meeting, and demonstrates itself often in a mar YcllOUS . it is impossible in a .short article to cive examples of what occurs, and"! would desire rather than to emphasise the. danger of meddling in occult matters until more know k-dge is giiined as tq rules and precautions by which tho people taking part in a seance may be I rotected. The very fact that sitters are asked to be quite passive, requested not to exert their wilh power, but just quietly wait and see what happens, ought to be suliicient warn- i jng in itseif of ...

MOUNT ARAPILES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 8 May 1914
MOUNT ARAP1LES. | The Natimuk (listriot possesses one of the most, pietare?que beauty spotw in the whole of the vast Wimmera-, but the local people do not seem to attach much value to if. It remains for visitors from outside to express their rapturous delight at the noble grander!1 of Mt Arapiles, and at the game tim; their surprise that nothing has been done in the way of making' it a nomilar resort for excursionists The 'district surrounding the rugged Mount has been populated for 40 years, and the only . evidences of civilisation are a ring fence and the destruction of native trees- Bui, to say that the destrnotion of native trees in the reservo is an evidence of civilization is beggaring the question. It is-more in the raalm of ruthless destruction and an indictment against the true public*spiritedness of the community The eastern slope runs niug from t ie base of the Blulf to the eutianco gate is known to contain water at a shallow depth, yet picnic parties have to either take ...
PHOTOGRAPHY [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 8 May 1914
PHOTOGRAPHY High art photographs in every sense of the term aptly describes the new Easter exhibit offered to the public at the famous studio of Rich1 ards and Co. The whole scheme of the*r spacious window lias been re modelled, and the general verdict, we feel assured, will be that. a de cided improvement in the effective display of each subject has been ob tained. The pictures themselves are quite up to the high degree of artistic excellence, for which the firm of Richards and Co has gained vrorld fame- The large central stadies are again a triumph, and collaboration of the artist, photo grapher and colorist The most prominent is a life size head study of a lorely little boy. The beatifnl curls and chubby face of the little chan needed only the warm flesh tones fo make the picture live. Very fine is the companion picture a young girl gathering wood violets. This is again a fine achievemeafc, the ex pression on the faca being realistic, and the beautifully worked in back ground giv...

Clear hout wiv ye, or I'll-" The farmer retired pre cipitately. The cottager sat in the road, shaking his head in sorrow aud embarrasment. The other bent over him, and laid his hand in a kindly fashion on his arm. " Never mind, Henry," said he consolingly, ''ray chimney smokes sometimes too." This story ...
