Random Readings. HOW MONARCHS AVOID EACH OTHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
Random Readings. HOW MONARCHS AVOID EACH OTHER. It is proverbial that Kings and Princes prefer to 'avoid' one an other when they are travelling in cognito, and M. Paoli tells of an amusing incident that took place in Paris, and of which he was a spec tator. The King of England had just ar rived in Paris, and had taken a box for the same evening at the Theatre des Capucines. I went with His Majesty. Leaving the box to take a glance at the house, I was sur prised to see, seated in the stalls, the King of the Belgians. I went back and told King Ed ward. N .1 am delighted to hear it,' he replied. And from that moment he carefully avoided looking in the dir ection where his brother-Sovereign was sitting. When the King had left the theatre, I waited for the King of the Belgians at the en trance. , . 'Do you know that the King of England was at the play, too?' I said. 'You 'don't mean to say so?' he said. 'I am sorry not to have seen him.' 'He knew all about it,' said the manager of the th...
HUMAN SALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
HUMAN SALES. Mexico is a country without poli tical freedom, without freedom of speech, without a free Press, with out a free ballot, without a jury system, without political parties, without any of our cherished guar antee of life, liberty, and the pur suit of happiness, says John Ken neth Turner in 'Fry's Magazine.' I found Mexico to be a land where the people are poor because they have no rights, where peonage is the rule for the great mass, and where actual chattel slavery obtains for hundreds of thousands- The masters of Yucatan do not call their system slavery ; they call it enforc ed service for debt. 'We do' not consider that we own our labourers; we consider that they are in debt to us. And we do not consider that we buy and sell them; we consider that we transfer the debt, and the man goes with the debt.' But the fact that it is not service for debt is proven by the fact that the slaves are transformed from one master to another, not on any basis of debt, but on the basis ...
A LONG-HIDDEN CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
A LONG-HIDDEN CRIME. Twenty-six years is a long period for a forgery to remain undiscover ed, yet in 1898 Mr. Nissen, a Lon don stamp dealer, was able to in form the then Postmaster-General that a very serious fraud had been j perpetrated in his department as far back as 1872.. The extent of the fraud will never be accurately known. There is no doubt that the Post Office was being systematically defrauded from June 3rd, 1872, un til June 13th, 1893. The scene of the operations was the telepranh. office at the Stock Exchange. The editor of the 'Postage Stamp,' who generally understands what he is writing about, suggests that £15, 000 might represent the sum lost to the State. A skilful forger fabricat- j ed at least two different plates of the old green shilling stamp, and al though there is abundant evidence that such stamps were used at the Stock Exchange telegraph-office there is nothing to show that the stamps were used elsewhere. It is unlikely that the 'participes crim inis?' w...
AN UNROMANTIC WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
AN UNROMANTIC WED DING. As an example of devotion to family tradition, the experience of a Californian with her singularly con scientious Chinese servant is worthy of record. Mrs. Harmon live's on a large estate out of Los Angeles. For some years she had been able to conduct her large establishment to her real satisfaction, largely be cause of the competence of a faith ful Chinese cook, v/iio, in' effect, managed the domestic side of her life. But after six or seven years of ideal service, Sam came to Mrs. Harmon wearing a look of deep sad ness. 'Sam givee up job,' he announc ed, solemnly. 'What!' explaimed his surpris ed employer. The loss of an orange crop might be endured, but the loss of Sam was ' irreparable. ' 'Got to go,' reiterated Sam. 'Is there anything wrong, Sam?' she asked, anxiously. 'No, missee. Got go back China.' 'To China? What for?' 'Getee marry,' replied Sam, la conically, but with no great delight. 'Married! You never told me you were engaged, Sam. I hope she is...

THE WONDER OF A BUBBLE [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 24 January 1911
THE WONDER OF A BUBBLE- 1 Buoyant as the air itself, where else shall you find the like in light ness! So unsubstantial, so resilient that if, in voyaging through space, it strike against some fixed object, so that, what, impact there is, comes only of ita own weight— that weight 13 often insufficient to break it, and our bubble sphere bounds back to sail away unharmed. Yefc let yon thread of drifting gossamer, yon windborne parachute of thistledown, I crash into the frail sides— and this tledown or gossamer will explode it and cause it to perish at a touch. Where else shall you find such fault less curves, such perfection of form, such transparency and incredible ' tenuity of texture ? That poppy petal is coarse as a kitchen cloth beside ifc, and though, at God'u bid ding, the bubble sprang into being in a moment— a finished work and world of Art — the most cunning craftsman this earth has known could not produce its like though he lived and toiled for a thousand years.'

SLANG OLD AND NEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
SLANG OLD AND NEW. One meaning of the word 'lobs- ter' is 'a gullible, awkward, bung ling, or undesirable fellow.' This meaning is supposed by most per sons to be a modern development of slang. But 'lobster' was a favourite term of abuse among Eng lishmen of Queen Elizabeth's day. Some students think it probably was applied first to men with ; red faces. As signifying a soldier the term 'lobster' is as old as Crom well's day. Lord Clarendon, his torian of the Civil War in England, explains that it was applied to the Roundhead cuirassiers 'because of the bright iron shells with which they were covered.' Afterwards British soldiers in their red uni forms were called 'lobsters.' Then came another development. The soldier in the red coat became a 'boiled lobster,' while the police man in blue was, of course, an 'un- boiled' or 'raw lobster.' Again, 'to boil a lobster,' was for a man to enlist in the Army and put on a red coat. ,
AN ACCESSORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
AN ACCESSORY. Newspaper readers are often a lit tle uncertain as to the meaning of the terms 'accessory before the fact' and 'accessory after the fact. ' Speaking generally, an accessory before the fact is one who, being ab sent at the time when the felony — murder — is committed, yet procures, couiisels, commands, or abets an other to commit it. An accessory after, the fact is one who, knowing a felony to have been coriimitted by another, receives, relieves, comforts, or assists the felon. An accessory before the fact can receive the same punishment as the actual principal ; an accessory after is lia ble to penal servitude for life in the case of a murder. If two per sons agree to commit suicide, and only one succeeded, the survivor could be charged with wilful mur der, for he would be an accessory before the fact.
FLOORING OF HOUSE AND SHED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
FLOORING OF HOUSE AND SHED. In the first number of Wright's Book on Poultry — published by Cassell's — will be found some sound advice on the flooring of the house and shed. Fowls will stand activity over wet runs, says this authority, on which they only walk at their choice ; but cannot be kept successfully in con finement for long, if the floor and walls of the House, and floor of the shed on which they depend for shel ter, be not dry. However damp the ground, this can almost be effected by digging and taking away till hard earth he reached, then putting on a layer of broken bricks, or stones, or clinkers, from one to two feet deep, in any case enough to raise the lever six inches above the ground, and on this a layer of concrete made of hot fresh-slaked brown lime, and gravel or pounded clinkers. Sometimes it is better to use a dry mixture of quicklime pounded, gravel, and tar, the smell of which repels rats and mice. If there is definite cause to dread rats, however, it is worth...
ABOUT PLYMOUTH ROCKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
ABOUT PLYMOUTH ROCKS. A writer in the 'Poultry World' has some good advice to give on the breeding and management of . the ever-popular Plymouth Rock. There is not the slightest doubt, he says, that, on the whole, the present-day specimens have to a certain extent lost that lovely rich clean hard blue barring we had some four or five years ago, and ,in my opinion, this has been caused by the craze for fine narrow barring. When too many bars occur on one feather, the ground colour loses its brightness, and gives the bird a dull ashy-coloured appearance. What we want is a brighter ground colour, to show up the barring. We certainly want fine barring, but everything can be over done. This is a point I want my readers to remember. The first principle in mating any kind of stock is the selection of sound healthy spe cimens of the correct type, and with plenty of size, these important points are often lost sight of in mating Barred Rocks, fine barring and col our being looked to first, no...

CLUCKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
CLUCKS. Do not keep more hens than you ^ , have roof for. The profitable hen has a dry, weli : ventilated, clean house. A lump of rock brimstone in 'Jie ? drinking water will keep the bi/ds . in good tone. Coal ashes thrown about the poul try-house are sure death to the blood sucking mites. Soft-shell eggs.mean too fat hens. Give less grain and more vegetable and green food. Do not stuff your hens, thinking that you can make them lay. Throw feed in the litter, and make them work for their meals. Don't winter over a lot of old hens. One-year-olds do the best laying, al though two-year-old hens often do very well. Keep fine grit and charcoal where the chicks can have access to it at all times. They must have the grit, and, while they can get along with - out the charcoal, they will do a great r deail better if. they have it. It aids digestion and promotes health. The best time to show a pullet is just before she is about to lay her first egg; her comb and face are cherry red, her eyes...

Tie Poultry Run. DUCKS AND FOWLS TOGETHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
Tie Poultry Rnn. w DUCKS AND FOWLS TOGETHER. One often sees ducks and fowls together, but I am convinced that this is not a wise proceeding. There are many reasons why it is better to keep them apart. In the first place, while ducks revel in slush, a dry place is the best for fowls. Ducks like a soft, muddv surface; the fowls like a hard one. A duck may seem ? as filthy as possible in appearance, but a few minutes in water will en : able it to become sound in plumage and perfectly clean. If a fowl gets ? its legs cased in mud, and the tips of wings and tail draggled, it is a long process for it to get dry. Fifty fowls will drink from a vessel with out spilling a drop ; two ducks will scatter the water all over the place. At feeding time one duck will eat at the rate of at least half-a-dozen fowls. Another reason why they . ; should be kept apart if at all prac ticable is because ducks, especially when breeding, are very quarrel - some, and have often been known to injure fowls. As I...
