THE GREATEST CRATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 24 March 1905
TnE GREATEST CRATER. Haleakala, or Ilouee of the Sun, in tho Island of Maul, one of the Sand wich Islands in the Pacific Ocean, has a wider crater than any other volcano ia the world.. The crater of Haloa kala is between six and a half and seven miles in width, nearly thirty miles in circumference, between 2000 and 3000 feet in depth, and is 10,032 feet above sea level. These islands are all of volcanic origin, and contain toniB of the largest volcanoes iu the world, among which may be men tioned, in addition^ to Halcakala, Mauna-Kca, Mauna-Loa and the far-j famed Kilauoa, the crater of which has an average width of two miles. One of the curious featnres of Kilauea, is that no dust is projeoted from its' eruptions, nothing but lava, and much of that in a filamentous condition, so delicate as to perfectly resemble' brown human hair, the natives call' this hair-like lava ' Pole's hair'— Vale being the name of tho goddess of the] mountain. According to Mr. Dana',/ these Volcanoes somet...
ALWAYS A SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 24 March 1905
ALWAYS A SECRET. Chartreuse, or La Grande Charbro use, as it u called in order to distin guish it from other establishments of the Carthusian monks, is situated in a cup-like valley £268 feet above tho sea-level, amid a group of chalky mountains, near Grepobje, in France. . It was founded in 1031, but most of the present edifice is li'.'.'.i over, two hundred years in age, In 1793 the domain of Chartreuse was de clared to be confiscated, to the State, and the monks were sent into exile. They were, however, allowed to re turn in 1810 to the monastery aud to have the use of their buildings and right of pasturage, on payment of a nominal rent, but their splendid estates were not restored, - .It is at their laboratorien', near which they also have a sawmill,. some forges, and a fine dairy farm, that the monks manufacture various pharma ceutical preparations that have a large sale in France, besides, of course, a vast quantity ofaths tamouB cordial which bears tiveir name.

URIARRA. Fish. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 24 March 1905
URIARRA. From our Correspondent. Fiih. The Goodradigbee fishing party mentioned last week returned with a real good bag, having caught 42 trout, ranging up to 2 'A pounds. Not a bad day's sport for four ama teurs, three of whom had never seen a trout caught before. One of the party had an exciting tussle with a big fellow, but lost him. OF course, you always lose the big ones. This time, the bait used was frogs and graashoppers. The funny man of the party says if you want to catch trout, you can bet your last cent on the democratic frog. But if you want sport, and have plenty of leisure to wait for it, th«n use the artificial fly. ;
THE CHAMOIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 24 March 1905
THE CHAMOIS. It is not -without reason that chamois dread tho ndvonl of eagles. So great is their terror of them that I have seen a herd of twenty or more huddling hclplcsely together when eagles are hovering about in -the neighbourhood. In the early spring the latter often killr.od carry off the young kids to their eyries, and (he femalo chamois has more thnn once been eeen doing desperate batilu with these fierce bints in (Wenro of Iht young. When li;ird pressed for food, I am assured by suver.il hunters of experience, they will cveu attack llio full-grown animulB. They \v;iit until they see a chamois irt a dillicnlt and dangerous plucc, and then hwonp dowu and clash it over tho cliff and devour it tit their leisure.

BT U$S ASfB SBA. THE JAP3 AS JOKEU3. The Japanese are a very polite people but they sometimes like to play a joke in a rouud-about oriental way unon the meu of tho west. In the days of the Second Empire, Baron Gros was sent to Japan to demand the opening of certain ports to French (omnnrce. Among the rest he named ti the Japanese ministers a certain city. The Japanese functionaries smilod to broadly when he preferred the raqnest that the French .ambasta-.. dor asked them to tell him what gave, t'icm. so much amusement; but in stead, of answering tile. Japanese ministers said : ' We will open the port in question, my lord, if France in her turn will' open a certain port to ns.' ' What port is tlmtP' asked th» Frenchman. - u The port of Liverpool.*.

ZOOLOGY. FRIENDLY RIVALRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 24 March 1905
2Q0&DGT. FRIENDLY RIVALRY. It has hitherto been looked upon as an established fact, which could not be called in question by tbe most scoptioal, that each community of. bees were distinguished by its ultra monarchical principles and its loyalty to one queen. The members of tbe hive would never hear of a pretender, still less bf a duumvirate or trium virate, and any attempt to bring about such a change in their political sys tem would have produced a revolution. TheTBoment a rival presented itself, the' lawful queen would, speaking figuratively, attack her tooth and nail, and the duel would end only in the death ot one or both. ' An Auetriam authority on agriculture, Dr. Dzierson, however, has a hive in which two queens get along together in perfect accord. They approach each other from time to time, he Bays, without the slightest antipathy, and on two or three occasions actually caressed each other mosttonderly, separatiDgquietly and peacefully, followed by their, de voted s...
