Longer aid more Accurate Forecasting There is living at ltiverview College, Lane Cove River, at the present time one of the greatest and keenost scien tists in' Australia, $nd one who ranks high in' the lists of scientists of the world. That man is Dr. Father Pigot. He works untiringly on a number of most intricate and delicate instruments that it is possible to imagine. There are instruments that are so sensitive that they are affected by the heat of the human body, or even the breath. THE MACHINES. To the ordinary lay mind these re markable machines convey but very little, as thev are so far above what any but a trained mind can conceive. It is not possible to follow the work ings of an instrument that is affoctod by different rays of the sun or by the slightest variations in temperature. To get over this latter difficulty the machines are housed underground in a specially prepared room with a roof that is lined with a thick layer of tanned bark. Then inside this largo room are sm...

PENNED In Arabia. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924

PEMMEID) ' In Arabia. Prom 'W'inuierings in Arabia, ' by Charles M. Doughty: Wandering in all the waste Arabia, we often see rude trivet stones set by three together: such are of old nomad pot-fires ; and it is a comfortable human token, that some have found to cheer themselves, inM-uio ub, in iana wnere mans life seems nearly cast away, but at what time is uncertain; for stones as they were pitched in that forsaken drought, may so continue for ages. The harder and gravel wilderness Is seen cross-lined everywhere with old Sodden camel paths; these are also from the old generations, and there is not any plaice of the immense waste, which is not at some time viBited in the Arab's wanderings; and yet whilst we pass, no other life, it may be, is in the compass of a hundred miles about us. There is almost no parcel of soil where fuel may not be found, of old camel dung, jella, bleaching in the sun; it may lie three years and a little fiand blown upon it, sometime longer. - There is anoth...

Good Australians : 56 Mr. W. H . Morrison 'JV/T K. W. 11. MORRISON is famous throughout the West for his mail contracting- work (luring the last thirty or forty 3*ears. Everybody in the West has heard of him. His mail work was a marvel: droughts and floods and fires ?could never stop him. Whatever happened, and all sorts of things 'happen in the West, Morrison's mails went through. If the Dar ling came down in flood forty miles wide, Morrison's mails came :along just the same. If the drought lasted for three years Morri son's mails lasted longer. Nothing stopped them. Me symbolised the spirit of the West. At one time he had nearly a thousand horses employed in ?carrying mails. Gradually the horses were superseded by the motor car, and Morrison's motors were of incalculable benefit to the Far West. Not only did they accelerate the mail service, but they also made it easier for fat stock buyers to get about. Yes, Mr. W. If. Morrison has played a big part in the devel opment of the Far...

British Agriculture "PROSPECTS BRIGHTER." A LETTER FROM HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924

E»ritish Agriculture 'PROSPECTS BRIGHTER.' A LETTER FROM HOME. A British agricultural authority writing to the Editor of the 'Stock Journal' from London under date Feb ruary 11th, tells us: v 'As you know, the country decided against Protection; but whether this policy will be a plank in the Con servative programme at the text election is not yet decided. 'Agriculture here has passed through a most anxious time for several years ; but it is almost certain that the worst is passed, and prospects are certainly brighter than f6r some time past. The wheat market has shown a gradual improvement for several months, and now prices are much higher than we expected at the commencement of the cereal year. 'Mutton values are also satisfactory; but beef, except the very best, is sel ling at a figure which leaves little mar gin for profit. 'Perhaps of all branches of farm ing, pig feeding is giving greatest cause for anxiety. We are meeting with very strong competition from the Continent for fre...

ORNAMENTAL BUSH TREES. 'Would you please forward me in formation as to the correct method, time, etc., of transplanting half-grown ornamental bush trees such aao kurra jongj wilga, etc.' The writer of the foregoing was in formed that tho seed of such hard wooded native plants aa wilga, myall, etc., sSbouliJ be sown as soon as ripe in pots, tins or pieces of bamboo, and that they can , then be transplanted to the desired position at any time of the year immediately following a soaking rain, Transplanting bush or open ground nuriery plants at any titoie is not recommended, as one is likely to lose at least 90 per cent. Kurrajongs should be sown in nur sery rows and transplanted to where they are to be grown three years from the time of sowing. Transplanting! should take place immediately after rain, care being taken to lift and plant the whole of the tap root,— E. N. Ward, Superintendent Botanic Gardens, Syd ney. ? '

GRIT YOUNG BUSHMAN'S WAY. BATTERED ARM, BUT DRIVES CAR [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924

GRIT ? * ? YOUNG BUSHMAN'S WAY. BATTERED ARM, BUT DRIVES CAR A message from the country to the 'News' tells of the remarkable grit of a young bushman : Lionel Kermode, who with his brother is joint manager of two stations in the Clermont dis- - trict, was accompanied by Nurse South gate and two other young women, and the station book-keeper, on a duck shooting expedition on a lagoon about 20 miles from the homestead. Kermode was adjusting the safety c&tcli of his gun when it exploded, in flicting a dreadful wound in bis upper arm. When the rest of the party found him they bandaged him with strips torn from the women's white skirts. Then they were faced with the problem of getting the wounded man to tne homestead. Kermode, whose arm was hanging by a few threads, was the only one who could drive the car. He was lifted into the driver's seat; and, though terribly weakened through loss of blood, kept going for 12 miles, when the car stopped. | While the book-keeper set out to wa...

Motor Transport ? SjC ? IN THE SHEEP INDUSTRY. N.Z. AND AUSTRALIA. Experiments in the transport of lambs to the meat works are being carried out In New Zealand, as reported in the Stock Journal. Mr. Merriinun, of Yass, conveys his stud sheep in a motor lorry to the railways and to the Shows. Now conies the folowing from the Rock lianiptou Bulletin : — Muc-li has been said, and written, re garding the shifting of stock by motor lorries and many small lots of rams have been conveyed from the railhead to tjieir destination by this means. Speaking entirely from memory, and subject to correction, Mr. R. D. Barton, the manager of Albllbah, near Isisford, was among the first to demonstrate the practicability of removing stock by this means. It was somewhere about thirteen or fourteen years ago that Mr. Barton, faced with threatening weather, saw that it was useless to try to get his sheep exhibits to Lougreach by horse, team and to be in time for judging day. He engaged a motor lorry; had ...

The MOTOR IN THE COUNTRY "BUCKS" IN THE TRANSMISSION Looseness of Working Parts the Source of Trouble [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 28 March 1924

I me- MOTOR IN ?THE COUNTRY [?] 'BUCKS' IN THE TRANSMISSION' ? — ? ❖ ? ? ' Looseness of Working Parts the Source of Trouble ~%7 OUR wife (if you be so blessed) JL has probably asked, as your car slowed down below eight miles per hour and started a series of, uncom fortable, audible jerks, 'What makes it do that?' To which you have prob ablv renlied that the feminine mind is incapable of understanding the lan guage, technical or profane, of the ex perienced motorist. As a matter of fact, you may have been unaware yourself of exactly what caused the bucking, although, if put to it, you could have offered a plausible ex planation. The trouble Is that one or all parts of the driving train may cause this, annoying buclring, and may avoid suc cessful diagnosis by reason of the fact that they all give forth the same sound. To complicate matters further, a sound actually produced in the rear of the car may, with uncanny ven triloquial deceptiveness, seem to come from beneath the floorboards...
