Prahran-Malvern Tramway [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 5 June 1914
Prahran-Malvern Tramway In a letter to Caulfield Council, on Wednesday, (he Prahran - Mat' vcrn Tramway Trust suggested a> reduction in the number of cars rui» on Glenhuntly-road, from Haw thorn-road to Grange-road, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and after 7 p.m., during the winter months. Figures submitted by Mr. Dix (Trust manager) showed the revenue on the line between th'ti hours stated for the week ending1 May 21, which only averaged aboul .jd. per car mile. 'Die proposal; it was pointed out, would mean a sav ing to Caulfield Council of £112 pei' month. Councillors were disin clined to favor the proposal, and eventually agreed to defer considera tion pending an interview with Mr. Dix.
Lifting Power in Growing Plants. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 5 June 1914
Lifting Power in Growing Plants. 1 The rapidity with which drooping loaves revive under a shower shows the extraordinary quickncss with which plant roots tako up water and drive it through .the stem to the* uppermost twigs and leaves. A .simple way of discovering how rapid ly this takes place is by watering a white iria with a hluo solution. In a few hours its white flowers will bo streaked with blue. Tlio power exerted by the roots and stems of growing trees is almost incredible. The roots of a young oak aro known to have lifted a block of granite weighing G£ tons. The lifting began in the fifth year of the tree's growth, and withing the next seven years the stono was raised more than eight inches. This remarkable feut lias been exceeded by tho American swamp cypress, which throws out immense but tresses around its stem. A barge loaded with bricks was wrecked on one of these buttresses in tho Okla wnlia river, and six years Inter the growtli of the tree had lifted tho wreck above w...

A Plant-Food Percolator. Obtain two butter tubs and bore a large number 'of 4-in. holes in tho bottom of one, then cover the perforated part with a piece of fine brass gauze (Fig. 1), tacking the gauze well at the corners. Tho other tub should bo fitted with a faucet of some kind-a wood faucet, costing about 3d. will answer tho purpose. Put tho first tub oil lop of the other with two narrow strips between them (Fig. 2). Fill the tub, about three-fourths full, with well packed horse manure, and pour water on it until it is well souUed. "When the water lias per colated through into the lower tub, it is rendy to use on houso and garden plants nnd is better than plain water, as it adds both fer tilizer and moisturo.

Then the Judge Laughed. HUMOURS OF THE LAW COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 5 June 1914
Then the Judge Laughed. nuMOuus OF TITR LAW COURTS. Wonderful indeed is tho oratory of counsel at times*, but one would have somo difhculty, perhaps, in finding a more amusing example of highfalulin legal language thnn tho following, which is quoted from "Law and Laughter" " ' Slnnrler, gentlemen,' said tho learned counsel, in a libel action, ' like a boa-constrictor of gigantic size and immeasurable proportions, wraps tho coil of its unwieldy body about its unfortunate victim, and, heedless of the shrieks of agony that coma from tho utmost depths of its \ictim's soul, loud and reverbe rating as tho night thunder that rolls in tho heavens, it finally breaks its unlucky neck upon tho iron wheel of public opinion ; forcing him to desperation, then to madness, and finally crushing him in tho hideous jaws of mortal death.' " No less amusing was the address of tho American Judgo Rodgers to a prisoner who had been convicted in. his court in Louisiana. " Pri soner, stand up !" ho said. "Mr...

Incombustible Linoleum. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 5 June 1914
Incombustible Linoleum. The .manufacture of incombustible linoleum, or, to speak more accu rately, of linoleum that burns with difficulty, has been a goal long aimed at by linoleum factories. The at tempts previously mado have been based on tho plan of adding incom bustible matter, such as . asbestos or ammonium- suits, to tho mass during the process of fabrication. Far more promising is a now scheme, described in "Technischo Monatshefte," in ultlch magnesium carbonate is added to the mass. All the carbonates have the property of giving oft carbon dioxide when heated at" high temperatures. This, as is well known, is a veiy heavy gas, which does not rise, but creeps along the floor. For this reason in case of a fire it would tend to cut olT tho supply of air from the lino leum. Magnesium carbonate is cho sen because it breaks up ut lower temperatures than any other car bonate. The principal involved is, of course, one commonly used in the manufacture of chemical fire extin guishers. ...

A Huge Stadium. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 5 June 1914
A Huge Stadium. Like nothing else more than the Honmu Colosseum is the huge sta dium contemplated for the College of New York, This is the gift of AdolpH Lewisohn, a copper million aire, and is designed to he a cre dit not only to the college, but also to tho great city itself. Tho stadium will be 400ft. long and 350ft. broad, and the great tiers of scats will take up half an ellipse, like the Koman Colosseum. There will be seating'room for .6,500 per sons and standing room for 1,500 more. From any seat tho specta tor may see the baseball game or the football or tho track races, or witness a Greek piny. Tho land slopes to tho cast. Spec tators will enter at the top of tho tiers and walk down to their seats. A great gallery at the rear banked with columns will provide the stand ing room and complete tho picture. This is to be painted in Fompeinn red to add to the illusion that New York lias been transported to Tlonic. Tho games or tho plays will bo framed in a picture, as it were.

Your employer thiulcs a lot of it, so should you. .lovenly (Iresr is .1 libel upon him, in asmuch it indirectly accuses him of paying a small sarory. It is falao .cononty to dress below your pro position. The world, remember, is ready to take a man at his own esti mation. You have 110 right to look what la tailed "seedy." People aro apt to think that n sc-cly-looking individu al is oriilictrd to drink and late hours Seodiness speaks- of neglect and in difference.

THE DAIRY ONE OF THE EFFECTS OF THE COW-TESTING ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 5 June 1914
THE DAIRY ONE OP THE EFFECTS OF Tf-IK COW-TESTING ASSOCIATION. It takes time to see a thing on air its skies and especially to test itg results. It is GO with these cow-test ing associations. A Wisconsin sub scriber writing us recently said that one of tho most important efftefcs ol cow-testing was that it tests out tlu cow owner as well as the cow. "That is the reason," he said, "why yot see so many fanners unwilling to en gage in it. They arc afraid of them selves as well as their cows." That'j a pretty sharp criticism, but we an j confident it is a true one in man; cases. There is such a lot of farm ers keeping cows who have no prid&lt; j in their business, who arc willing tc j do business with a lot of inferior, money-losing cows, provided thej thought their neighbours -did vol know it, that it is hard to react them by any appeal to sound busi ness principles. Any other class of men would hav&lt; i a horror in keeping, for instance, £ [ stack of gODds or sot of m...
CHAPTER XLI. AT THE MIDNIGHT HOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 5 June 1914
CHAPTER XLI. AT THE MIDNIGHT HOUR. Almost instantly tbo door swung , gently open, but the Russian, in stead of striking, reccdcd a little in amazement. "And both he and Dick exclaimed sharply, for thej. saw be- : fore them the figure of a woman muf fled from head to foet in a black ; cloak. This she parted at tho top, revealing the lovely face of Lucille Montejo. f "Dick !" she whisperod, oagcrly. "Lucille, you here !" ho replied. "Merciful Heaven, what docs it all mean ?" "I have come to save you, Dick, if that bo possible. Follow m&lt;s-ah, you are not alone !" She shrank timidly from tho Rus sian. "This is Captain Volborth, my fel low-prisoner," Dick explained. "Ho is a friend-he is on my side. Save us both, Lucille !" "Come; every moment is precious, Dick," the Spanish girl answered. She led the two bewildered men across the corridor, and thence to the open, moonlit space before the prison. To tlje left of tho outer door, huddled against the wall as though asleep, was th...

A Tango in the Heavens.

The professor .and his youn# friends had just returned somewhat breath less and aw'ed, from un exciting trip amid tho whirling .atoms of the Milky Way, a ride on tho shaggy bock of Ursa Major, and a most cnchanting roundabout in tho cir cus of tho Zodiac. Oh tho way tho professor told his fellow travellers how .to measure tho passage of light from, say. Sirius to the - human eve, and how to do lots of other things that happen between our own rolling star and brother twinklers in tho firmament.
