HOSPITAL WOOD CHOP. ROBIN HOODS AT WORK. A PRAISEWORTHY AND SUCCESSFUL EFFORT. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 28 March 1914

HOSPITAL WOO© CHOP. :o: ROBIN HOODS AT WORK. A PRAISEWORTHY AND SUCCESS FUL EFFORT. On Thursday last the annual effort of followers of Robin Hood in aid of the Amherst District Hospital duly eventuated, and the result was well up to last year, which, all things considered, must be deemed very satisfactory. The weather was certainly rather on the trying side, although an im-, provement on that prevailing for some time past. Judging by Thursday's work, the " chop " does not appear to have lost any of its popularity, and the manner in which the men worltpd was really most praiseworthy. As in former years, those who viewed the animated scene for the first time were astonished at what they saw. In conversation with a lady visitor from Melbourne, she re marked to our representative :— " It is really splendid; I shall have something worth relating to my friends when I return to town. I had no idea it was anything like this." Our lady friend was very enthusiastic) in praise of the workers, ...

CARE OF YOUNG TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 4 April 1914

CARE OF YOUNG TREES. The care of the young trees at this • season of the year is one of the mcst important , ,of orchard operations. Many trees have 'been planter! out dur ing the past season. . Whatever care and attention are given to the young trees will. >be amply repaid to the grower an after years, owing to the vigorj sturdiness, and other qualities : thus imparted to them. It id a mis take to plant a young orchard, and, ; after cutting back the trees, to leave , them practically to their own .devices, ' other than following the usual meth ods of ,soil cultivation. The trees, after the early summer cultivation and cleaning of the soil, should ibe mulched with straw, grass, or leafage of some description, riiic mulching should not he crowded round the stem, its object being main ly to create moist ana cool soil con ditions, and to encourage a free root system. The mulch material should be occasionally stirred, and no weed 'or grass growth should .be permitted to accumulate am...

CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 4 April 1914

I I CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. t Paper is at present used for all pos I sible purposes in the industries and in all possible forms. It has even been | possible by means of compression to give it a degree of hardness compar j able with stone, so that it can be used as building material, The latest use for paper, however, is perhaps the most peculiar. A factory is said to exist in England which is manufactur ing circular saws from paper. These ! paper saws are used for the manufac turing ot fine furniture, veneer and other thin plates of wood, which must be treated especially carefully. Some time ago circular saws made from drawing paper were shown in an English exposition. The saws were driven by an electric motor and produced fine boards, which could not have been made better even by the finest steel saw. The veneers made in this way are so smooth that the cabinet makers can use them .without further planing.

An Interrogation Point. A new flagman, the first week of his job, was much exercised on account of the delay of the "Green Bullet" (the -mile-a-minute flyer). Finally, forty minutes late, the "Green Bullet" came tearing along at eighty miles an hour. The flagman rushed out with a red flag. The "Green Bullet" stopped with a grinding of 'brakes and a tearing up of ties and road 'bed. The engine driver leapt down excitedly, and the new flagman said: "Yer late. What kept ye?"

Good Advice. There are thousands of people who suffer from common ailments, such as who have no idea that their Buffering is due to a diseased or inactive con dition of the kidneys and liver.

WHERE SOUND CANNOT BE HEARD. A Mystery of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 4 April 1914

WHERE SOUND CANNOT BE HEARD. A Mystery of the Sea. It is a singular and somewhat dis turbing fact that "there frequently ex ists at sea, in the area covered by a fog, what might be described as a zone of silence; that is, a belt of space in which sound cannot be hear^' It is the o,nly thing of all others most dreaded by mariners. There may be danger ahead—say, a deadly rock lying right in the vessel's course. The light that marks it, whether from lighthouse or lightship, is blanketed by the fcg, but the crew at least expect to hear the warning blast of the fog horn. No such blast reaches them. The sound is com pletely lost in the silence zone, and' the first intimation tfcey have of the danger is when the vessel crashes on the rock. To this cause undoubtedly maj be attributed some of the great dioas ters at sea which have puzzled many shore people. There was trie case of the Stella, for instance, which ran full tilt on the Casquet Rocks, off Alderney. The. Stella -was a ra'.lway Bte...

NEIGHBORS' DIFFERENCES. ,;n; A case which His Honor Judge Winneke, who presided at the Clunes County Court on Friday, described as a "storm in a tea cup," occupied the court for over three hours. Alfred Close, of Fell's Gully, Dunach, claimed £5 damages from, James Wolfenden, who lives in the same locality, for damage to crop by cows.
