DISTRICT NEWS. POREPUNKAH. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 March 1917

DISTRBGT NEWS. [PROM OUR COHHESPONDENTK.] PQREPUNKAH. THE anunal sports to be held ou Friday nest promise to be very successful. Al though the entries will show a falling off as compared with past years, nevertheless there will be sufficient to provide a day's good sport. At night a concert and ball will be held at the hall. A varied and interesting programme has been provided for this portion of the celebration. In addition to a number of district singers, the local dramatic club will stage an amusing farce. On past occasions this company has put up real first-class per formances, and from what can be gathered they expect to eclipse all previous efforts. As the whole of the proceeds go to pat riotic purposes, it is hoped the public will bear this in mind, and rally round the promoters on the day in question. Arrangements have been completed here for a visit of a party of Collingwood cricketers at Easter time. The party, wbich;will number about 30 members, intend playing a two days'...

RAIN WARMS THE AIR. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 March 1917

RAIN WARMS THE AIR. People who speak of rain cooling the air will be surprised to hear that it warms it, in some places to a de gree little short of the rays of the sun. Dr. Haughton calculated that in the West of Ireland, where it rains twenty-eight days in the month, the heat derived from the rainfall is equal to half that derived from the sun. The explanation is simple. When a solid body becomes liquid, or a liquid body becomos vaporous, it takes a quan tity of heat from the air, or any where it can get it, and stores it up. When it changes back to a liquid or solid it gives up all this heat again. The watery vapor in the clouds, when it condenses into liquid rain, gives out all its heat to the surrounding air. Everyone knows the power of rain to melt ice. One inch fall of rain is capable of melting a layer of ice 8in. thick.

KEEPING UP WITH SUCCESS. It Often Makes a Man Miserable. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 March 1917

KEEPING UP WITH SUCCESS. It Often Makes a Man Miserable. Success may not be always easy to attain, "but often, when it is ac quired, the strain of keeping up with it makes the successful man or wo man more miserable than happy. Before the war many of our work ing-class people had poverty as a con stant companion. Yet in their pov erty some of them were less miser able than they are to-day with the larger sums of money they earn on munition and other work. They are not deriving the amount of real hap piness from their improved condi tions which the circumstances war rant. . Several families who are earning sufficient to bring them in every com fort, and not a few luxuries, are be ginning to fret because their money will not take them into a higher so cial sphere. What is the good of wealth if they cannot soar? they ar gue. So Success-what they think is real Success-is still far in tho distance. Hundreds of middle-aged and even old men are more prosperous to-day tlian they have ever b...

Floral and Industrial Exhibition. A SUCCESSFUL FUNCTION. THE floral and industrial exhibition .promoted by adherents to the Methodist Church at Wandiligong was held under very favorable conditions on Saturday afternoon and evening last, at the H.U. Hall, end from all standpoints it proved on unqualified success. Although the schedule was limited in competition, and the exhibits not so numerous as in former years, the quality throughout was excellent, and in works of art there were many fine exhibits. Altogether there were nine classes, comprising literary and educational, cut flowers, pot plants, vegetables, preserves and jams, cookery, fruit, faucywork, and miscellaneous. While competition in some of these was limited, in others the reverse was ex perienced, and the eagerness with which the awards of the judges were scanned was reminiscent of the early -.days of horticultural shows in Wandiligong. In the literary and educational class some splendid school work was shown by the chil...

Called to the Bar. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 March 1917

Called to the Bar. One old lawyer was telling another old lawyer about how he stood his examination for the bar in the good days before lay/ schools got so pre valent. "I lived in a small country town in Kentucky," said he, "and enjoyed the distinction of being distantly related by marriage to the piesiding judge of one of the highest courts in the state. My widowed mother naturally expect ed that the judge would see that I got through the examination for the bar with little difficulty, and that I would jump at once into a paying practice. My father had been a lawyer, both of my uncles were lawyers, and then there was the judge, so how could I do otherwise than inherit great legal' ability? "Or.e hot summer's day I rode horseback to the next town, where the judge was holding court. I called on him in the evening. He received me cordially. For two hours we talk ed about various members of the fam ily, the judge doing some boasting about the pioneers from whom he was descended, and pa...

THE SUN AND THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 March 1917

THE SUN AUD'TrtE SOIL. A wot soil is a cold soil.1 It weak ens seeds and sickens plants. The way-to warm ci soil is to draift it. A drain three feet deep never made a soil too dry. The force of capillarity is always present to keep a- film 01' water around the soil grains. This force fixes (lie limit up to which drainage is necessary and beyond' which It is impossible. In a drained soil the heat of the sun is directed to the soil aiid not to'the unnecessary water it may contain. The sun is thus given a clianco to make its work count. Starting at thirty-two degrees the sun has to raise the soil temperature as nearly to the optimum as possible. The moment soils thaw out in spring earh cubic foot of saturated clay weighs about J 00 pounds seventy pounds of soil and thirty pounds of water at thirty-two degrees Fahrenheit. Fifteen pounds of water to a cubic foot is plenty. A cubic foot of wet peat weighs about seventy-five pounds, of which fifty poundr is water. Saturated peat is in wors...
