Yankee Doodle. A noted American, on the occasion of his seventy-fifth birthdny, talked of the marvellous speed of his coun try's trains. "Three men," lie said, "n French man, an Englishman, nnd n» Ameri can, were onco praising their re spective railroads—for nil American will prafse his railroads abroad, though at homo it's usually a dif ferent story. "Well, the Englishman said " "'Our express trains go so fust that the telegraph polos-, along tho lino look like a high board fence.'

Australia's Cats. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 26 March 1914

Australia's Cats. The Australians imported rabbits to give themselves the pleasure of hunting them, and also to furnish a new product for their estates. As is well known, this plan did not work out well ; the rabbits multi plied -rapidly owing to t tic well known fecundity of the species ; they hove consumed pasturage and crops in such a degree that they have be como a{. pest, destroying the food supplies intended for tho herds. Every possible menus has been em ployed to get rid of them ; prizes of immense value have been oflered to whoever would furnish a means of exterminating this prolific race. No thing has succeeded, and breeders aro obliged to live side :'by side with the enemies that they themselves in troduced into their lond.' ..-Xow it is cats that are giving trouble.'

Babu English. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 26 March 1914

Babu English. In India the Iiabu class of rail way. servant prides itself on its great hold on the idioms of the English language, and hence the following examples of their efforts in this direction, lit is a standing rule on railways in India that all, very unusual happenings arc tele graphed to headquarters. The inter pretation of the term "unusual " and the discretion as to the import ance of the event that takes place is so vague that generally every thing is wired. Stimulated by his night's rest, one spread himself thus in a telegram to his divisional superintendent :—"Coming on duty early in the morning, clad in my new and white uniform, I perceived a man seated on a box in a naked and aggressive manner. Taking''him to be an ordinary passenger, 1 pro ceeded to slap him ! whereupon ho hastily arose, unlocked the said box, clad himself in a policeman's Uni form thereout, and arrested rne.

BURIAL GROUND FOR THE WORLD'S GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 26 March 1914

BUIUAl, GROUND Rill TUB WOKLD'S COI.D. A royal commission hnB be?n ap pointed l>y Great Uritain to.discover what India does with all the sold it takes away from the rest of the world. In the last ten years India has drawn more than £13.000,000 of gold, which is almost onc-f utrth of the world's production in that time, from the western world, and the greater part of it has disappeared from the usual channels of trade and finance. To draw this itrmense amount from thn commercial world, and par for it in Roods, is, of course an economic drain on India. Yet. it does not seem to sulTer more by the procpss than docs the rst of the world when, thinking it has sold for general use, it discovers that the part of its imagined supp.y, which goes to India is lost as completely as if buried.

Earth Not Likely to be Dried Up. CHANGE IN RAINFALL DISTRIBUTION MERELY LOCAL. DROUGHT AND MIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 26 March 1914

Earth Not Likely to be Dried Up. CHANGE IK HAINFAT'T-i 1HSTIU BUTIOX MERELY LOGATj. DROUGHT AND 1IIGI? ATION. • Combating the frequently-advanced theory that the earth- is drying up, Professor Gregory, at a Geographi cal Society's meeting held at Bur lington House, said there was no real evidence of more* than local changes in rainfall distribution. /-* As an increased rainfall had been demonstrated for so many parts of the world, it was only natural to expect a compensating decrease in other districts. Prince. Kropotkin had attributed the overthrow of tthe Roman Empire to the dwindling rainfall in Central Asia, which- turned whole tribes in to nomads owing to the repeated failures of their crops. He further . contended that if this desiccation of the earth was to go on it must lead to further great political changes, forcing popula tions out of the centres into the continental margins.

A Locust Swarm. <♦ A novel experience for a ncw comer to South Africa is to en* counter & locust swurni. To dwellers on the High Vel'lt the sight is not unusual, but one's first ac quaintance with tho past is some* what startling. A party of "newly-outs" was tak ing the journey to the Victoria Fall*. When half-way across the Karoo, on a bright, sunny day, the sun suddenly became obscured, and the sky seemed to turn black. The ladies screamed in alarm ; they thought it meant an earthquake, or j at least a violent tropicol thunder 1 storm, but a voice nlong the cor : ridor of the train, shouting, " Lo custs swarming—close all doors and window*," explained tho peculiar darkness, and partly calmed tho feminine fears. The order wtv3 obeyed, and the passengers watchod dovelopmants. The gigantic mass swooped down On the train, covering coaches and rails, and beating themselves against the windows, blotting out all light. The train slowed down to half speed, for the crush...

MONEY-MAKING MOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 26 March 1914

MONEY-MAKING MOUSE. To nn ingenious Scotsman goes the credit of being the first person to harness a mouse and make him ;i money-earning factor. He was David Hutton, a native of Dunfermline, nnd his unexpected death alone prevented him from carrying out his experi ments on a much larger scale. Though Mr. Hutton proved tint nn ordinnry mouse would average a rim of ten and « half miles a day, he had one mouse which ran eighteen miles in that time. A halfpennyworth of oatmeal m ] sufficient for its food for thirty-five j days, during which time it ran 2*2 : miles. He kept two mice constantly ! engaged in the making of sewing thread for more than a year. ! This thread mill was so construct ed that the mouse was able to twist twine and -reel from 100 to 201 threads a day, Sundays not excepted. To perform this taBk it had to run ten and a half miles a day which it did with perfect ease every other day.
