THE AGE THAT ANIMALS LIVE TO [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 16 May 1914
THE AGE THAT ANIMALS LIVE TO A bear rarely exceeds twenty years; a dog lives twenty years; a woll twenty; a fox fourteen or sixteen; lions are long lived-generally about seventy. ..The average age of cats is fifteen years; a squirrel and hare seven or eight years; rabbits, seven. Elephants have been known to live to the great age of 400 years. When Alexander the Great had conquered one Phorus, King of India, he took a great elephant which had fought very valiantly for the King, named him Ajax, and dedicated him to the sun, and let him go with this inscription: "Alexander, son of Jupiter, hath dedi cated Ajax to the sun." This ele phant was found with this inscription 350 years afterwards. ? Pigs have been known to live to the age of thirty years; the rhinoceros to twenty; while one horse lived to the age of sixty-two, but the average age is between twenty-five and thirty. Camels sometimes live to the age of 100. .Stags are long-lived; but sheep seldom exceed the age of ten. Cows liv...
THE IDEAL NATION. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 16 May 1914
.y * THE IDEAL NATION. National degeneration is shown by ; the diseased cult of poverty and the i glorification of ill-health. The true j ideal is that of a nation of strong ; brave, and intelligent men; beautiful and happy women, with children who know no care. The ideal nation is one without hospitals, infirmaries, j convalescent homes, dispensaries. I This ideal was apparently obtained j for at least four hundred years in the history of ancient Greece. For that , period, medical science languished be- j cause professional healers could not flourish in a community where the standard of health was so high that physical debility and bodily defects were regarded as shameful. There is no mystery about the healthiness of Greek life. In essentials, British hygiene, as taught by its best expon ents, is identical with the health cul ture of the Violet Crowned City. We count the old Greek as pagan; but he was clean, he lived frugally, exercised himself for fitness in national service, and ...

Bendigo Mining Disaster A public meeting will be held at Town Hall on Thursday evening next, 21 st inst to consider the best steps to be taken to help the sufferers in the Bendigo Mining Disaster. Cr Fear occupied the chair at the Council meeting on Monday even ing, the Mayor (Cr. Webber, M. L.A.) being away in Sydney. Councillors were more than usually talkative, and a deal of time was taken up with small matters, while more important business was at the finish postponed till next meeting. &nbsp; The chairman, however, showed tact and discretion throughout, and his pleasant demeanour even when ruling against councillors occasion ally kept down any angry alter cations that at times seemed imminent.

VEGETABLE MARVELS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 23 May 1914
VEGETABLE MARVELS. At Eythorne, in East Kent, four persons recently made a meal off one radish, which was so large that when they were satisfied a piece the size of an ordinary turnip remain ed, while another, grown at I,yinp ne, neur Hythe, measured lGin. in length and lOin. in circumference. On a seed farm near Kelvedon a radish measuring Sj8£in. from the top of the leaves, to the tip of the root, with a girth of I3jin., was grown. Vegetable marrows sometimes grow to big dimensions. One grown at Feltham from seed planted in March of last year weighed, when full grown, 401b. and measured over 2ft. in length, while another, grown at Wimbledon, while not quite so heavy, was as long, and perfectly shaped. In some districts the weo ther seems to have been particularly favourable to roses. At Ben well, in 'Northumberland, a Niphetos tea rose, which in the course of years has covered an area of 1,300ft., has yielded 18,000 perfect blooms ; two rose trees which grow near Oldham have borne...
The Romance of the Colours. SOME INCIDENTS OF DEVOTED HEROISM DISPLAYED IN THEIR DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 23 May 1914
The Romance of the Colours. SOME INCIDENTS OF DEVOTED HEROISM DISPLAYED IN THEIR DEFENCE. Custom dies hard, and to this rea son may be ascribed the retention, at the present day, of Colours by the British Army. Their sphere of usefulness, however, to inspire the soldier with (as Carlyle says) ''the divine idea of duty, of heroic dar ing-in some instances of freedom and right,'- has departed for ever. Nowadays, a regiment's . colours re main but a severed symbol of past militury glory, to appear in the midst of the troops only upon cere monial occasions. Modern warfare is responsible for this. Battles are now fought" upon . ihe principle that everything as far as possible must be invisible. This forbids even the wearing of a.-bright button by the participants-the Klint from which might make a .Mark- for the enemy's marksmen, or ivc away elaborate tactics, and mdo hours of strenuous men v:.l and physical labour. Under these, conditions it can be readily seen that it is quite im possib...
HOME HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 23 May 1914
HOME HINT8. - .To clean lamp-glasses hold them over a jug of boiling water until well steamed, ? then polish with a dry dus ter. It is far less trouble than wash ing, and the glasses very rarely break. When washing valuable china or cut glass it is a good plan to place a .heavy Turkish towel at the bottom of the basin. This prevents all danger of the china and glass getting chip ped'. - To preserve eggs, fill a wooden box with ordinary salt, smear each egg over with olive-oil, and place it in the salt with the pointed end downwards. Eggs treated in this manner will keep fresh for some time. i" In giving medicine in liquid form to a baby, place the point of the spoon containing the medicine against the roof of the mouth. Ad ministered in this way-it will be Im possible for the child to choke or ejgct the medicine. To remove cocoa stains from table sloths and serviettes, wash in cold water first, and then boiling water should be poured through until the last vestige of the stain is go...
AN HEROIC WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 23 May 1914
AN HEROIC WOMAN. % woman of comparatively humlile origin who has recently died at Toul on, proved herself a heroine iin a mo ment of peril. Her name was Mad ame Emerat, and in 185S she was liv ing with her father, M. Eveillard, who was French Consul at Jeddah. A band of fanatical Mussulmans atacked the English and French consulates. M. uid Madame Eveillard were killed in presence of their daughter. '. The latter, retaining her self-com mand, organised, with the assistance of dragomen, a powerful resistance, which was shared by twenty-five other Christians who had taken refuge in the consulate. The defenders held out against the Mussulmans for two days. The British gunboat, Cyclops landed a party of bluejackets, who, dispersing the assailants, found that nearly all the besieged were dead. Emerat seriously wounded, and Made moiselle Eveillard in danger of being captured. The curl returned to France, was received by Napoleon the Third, and .granted a reward by the nation. Af terwards s...
THE WISDOM OF THE RAT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 23 May 1914
THE WISDOM OK THE RAT. No single point better illustrates the sagacity of a rat than the way in which it-eats an egg. It bites through the shell and chips off small fragments as neatly as a squirrel opens a nut, consumes the entire contents, without spilling a drop, and then sits up and licks itself clean like a cat. Rats will steal the eggs from under » sitting. hen. _ . Their method of handling eggs is also characteristic. 'An egg is as big for a rat as a barrel is for a man, and much more fragile. Yet there is evi dence of the fact that they pass eggs along from "one to another, although uot, probably, as has often been re ported, by forming lines, like a buck et brigade. The operation is natural iy a difficult one to observe. Appar ently it takes two rats to each egg. One holds the egg in its paws, passes it on to the other, and then runs ahead to take it once more in its turn: The same device seems to be 'employed to carry an egg downstairs, the one that has the egg passing it ...
