"THE TEETH OF THE HORSE AND ITS AGE." [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 16 October 1914

"THE TEETH OF THE HORSE AND ITS AGE." "Though it is quite common to meet men who profess to be able to tell accurately the ago of horses up to a late period of life, nevertheless it is safe for any person ordinarily not to claim to be able to read a horse's age with accuracy after the animal has passed eight years or so." Such is a portion of the introduc tory of a Farmers' Bulletin No. 87, which has just been issued under the compilation of Mr. S. T. D. Symons, M.1R.C.V.S: This booklet, which is profusely il lustrated, is intended to show the con dition and growth of the teeth of a horse from birth to twelve years old. The appearance of the teeth, in rela tion to the age, is briefly set out, a portion of which is as follows: "At birth, as a general rule, none of the teeth are through, but in about a week the four central milk incisors are cut, and the first, second and third temporary molars also appear. The upper incisors are generally cut a few hours before the lower. "At four to...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 16 October 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rustic is.") The Central Weather Bureau's sum mary of the condition of stock, crops, pastures, water supply, etc., at the end: of the month of September, based upon the reports received from the meteoro logical observers throughout the State of Victoria,. is, for the most part, not cheerful reading. It states that for the great inland wheat and sheep-pro ducing areas, known as the Winuuera, Mallce, and Northern country, embrac ing all the north-western and northern plain country from the Lower Ovens to the head of the Glenelg River and South Australian border, prospects at the end of September were gloomy in the extreme. As a rule, even in the worst of seasons, some districts in an area so large have something encourag lug to show, but on this occasion prac tically all seem to have had the same disastrous experience. The following report from Kaarimba pithily summar ises an all but universal opinion: "Failure in everything sums up the position here. No crops, ...

FLAX AS A PAYING CROP. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 16 October 1914

FLAX AS A PAYING CROP. (By O. P. Ogilvie.) -Flax, destined for fibre, has to be cultivated on different lines from.that of flax-seed-or linseed (as it is usually called). Should seed be requirea; flax is sown- thinly, about 1J bushels per acre--by planting thinly the stem has a chance to branch out and flower. If fibre is the chief object the seed is planted closer-about 2 or 2t bush els per imperial acre-the result being the drawing up of the stalks- with lit tle tendency to branch. The total of the last available fig ures- shows that the world's flax crop (including Russia for 1911) was grown on over 4t million acres, which pro duced over. 800,000 tons. In 1912 Russia: alone had 3,832,056 acres under cultivation which produc ed 817,871 tons, and out of this she exported - 345,215 tons, realising £11,432,954. - To the United King dom she sent 68,500 tons, valued at £3,474,187. In Ireland there are nearly 1,000,000 spindles at work, over £7,000,000 supk in mills, machinery, etc., an...

DUCKS IN AN ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 16 October 1914

DUCKS IN AN ORCHARD. A contributor to the Auckland "Herald" states:--I wish to impress the value of ducks on the orchardist. They are of far greater value to him than hens, as they do not fly into the trees or scratch.. An acre of orchards, with 50 to 100 ducks running therein, should do wonderfully well, and would require little -manuring or cultivation. The ducks in the spring and summer months would get away with a lot of the insect pests. Many a time I have watched the ducks chasing after ..the little brown insects just about dusk in -the spring. I have kept ducks in my oichard for- -several years, and know what-I am talking about. My trees are wonderfully clear of pests and show wonderful crops of fine fruit each sea son. I am at the present time shifting to a new orchard and poultry farm, and I only wish I could show the read ers of these lines what I consider the ideal way of keeping ducks penned up and on free range. The position I have chosen lies facing the north-east, and...

AUSTRALIAN NURSES ON FOREIGN SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 16 October 1914

AUSTRALIAN NURSES ON FOREIGN SERVICE. The Defence department has decided that four trained nurses are to sail on each transport. Six of these come from Victoria, and are all members of the Australian Army Nursing Service. They are Miss M. Finlay (acting matron), Miss Conyers, Miss Samsing, Mrs. White, Miss Lempriere and Miss Kit- chen. The members of the Army Aus- tralian Nursing Service may be called for home service only. So the six who upon at-any time, like our citizen forces are accompanying the troops are going as volunteers. Altogether over 300 trained nurses have offered their ser- vices to the Defence Department in Vic- toria; so the one class of professional women whose training enables them to be of use in warfare, have indicated by their readiness to offer service the spirit that animates women as a whole in this crisis. The Australian army nurses are paid a retaining fee of £1 a year, and have to provide their own uniforms. They may join at 21, but as a matter of fact a...

Lilydale Express. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 16 October 1914

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1914. The Lilydale Shire Secretary (Mr Hamilton Sinclair) and the rate collector (Mr G. Paul) ap peared at the Lilydale Police Court on Friday last, when seve ral ratepayers were proceeded against for the recovery of over due rates. The cases were pro ved, and in each instance orders made for the amounts claimed. In 1840 William .I., King of Prussia, consulted a celebrated soothsayer, who, in answer to his queries, told him he would as cend the throne in 1849; that the German empire would be estab lished in 1871, that he would die in 1888, and that the German em pire;would come to an end in 1913. The first three prophecies have been fulfilled to the very letter, and the final prophecy. will most probably not be much over twelve iionths out. .The inhabitants of Hoddle's Creek turned up in full force the other day at the reserve adjoin ing the School ground, with the object of clearing the ground by means of a 'working bee' for the formation of a tennis court.

To the Editor. Sir,--Hlaving read in the- colunuIs of your last issue the roeport of the annual inspection of roads i. the S.W. riding of. the Shire of Lilly dale by the members of the riding, I desire to draw attention to the latter portion of the report, viz., the visit to Wonga. Park, where it states the members inspected the place complained of by Mr Fitton in re gard to diverting .the water from his side of the road to the opposite side into Mr Read's dam, anit after interviewing Mr Fitton' on the mat ter decided that the permission gi voe to 3Mr Read by the council be not withdrawn. Recently a lettei appeared in your journal mentioning the injustice done to M1r Ficton in taking his rights from him when he protested against the permission given, and rightly so, and I have it from good authority our coun cil has no legal right to give per mission or even tncmselves divert flood water from its natural- course to satisfy - one particular person to the detriment of the one who want...

UNSINKABLE LIFEBOAT [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 23 October 1914

UNSINKABLE SLIFEBOAT -Novel life-saving apparatus is carried by the steamer Recto, which arrived at Dover- recently from -Norway. Slung from her davits-is to be seen 'a lifeboat, which bears a striking resemblance to a submarine, sylindrical hull and con ning tower complete. It is of sufficient size to accommodate the whole of the steamer's crew of fifteen hands, and is entered through the conning-tower, the hatch of which may be closed. The craft is self-righting and above the tower is a small mast on which a sail can be-rigged. - It is claimed for this lifeboat that it is unsinkable unless it should be stove in, and that-it can live in the roughest sea. The Recto also carries a motor life-boait of the open type, and has probably the finest life saving equipment of any mercantile vessel of her size.

A HUNDRED YEARS AGO [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 23 October 1914

A HUNDRED YEARS AGO The only matches sold in London 100 years ago were cedar splints tipped with a paste of chlorate of potash and sugar. On dipping one of these into a little bottle containing asbestos wetted with sulphuric acid, and withdrawing it, a flame burst forth. Fifty in a box, to-' .gether with "the bottle, were sold for a shilling. The matches invented by John Walker in 1827--the first to ig nite-on sandpaper-were sold at the same price. Owing to the damage caused by the heads flying off after ignition, the use of these matches was prohibited in France and Germany. Six years later came the -invention of lucifers, the first matches with phos phorus in their composition: These, too, -were- originally sold at a shilling a box, and when in course of time the price fell to a penny a motto fromn "'Paradise Lost" was suggested for the boxes, "0, Luciferl how. greatly art thou fallen!

NEW AERONAUTIC RECORDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 23 October 1914

NEW AERONAUTIC RECORDS. * The French military dirigible balloon Adjutant Vincenot, piloted by Georges Joux, and carrying eight passengers, has made a new world's record for con tinuous navigation by dirigibles. It re mained in the air for 35 hours and 20 minutes. The German dirigible Zep pelin L3 established the previous re cord of 34 hours and 59 minutes in May in a flight from Friedrichshaffen to Berlin. The L3 measures more than 25,000 cubic meters; the Adjutant Vin cenot 9000 cubic meters. The Germans still maintain the lead in aviation, par ticularly from the standpoint of dura tion. Recently Herr Landmann, with a 75 horse-power Albatross biplane, re mained aloft, circling the Johannisthal aerodrome, for 21 hours and 49 min utes, thus adding well over three hours to the best previous record. He finally descended because of fatigue, and not from lack of fuel. The Warrnambool town council has received intimation from Mr. Murray that the Public Works department is taking steps to ...
