CURES FOR DRUNKENNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
CURES FOR DRUNKENNESS. ? ^ ? ' A novel method is that adopted in Norway for turning a drunkard from the error of his way. The pa tient is placed under lock and key, and is fed at frequent intervals on bread saturated with port wine. For the first day this is no doubt pala table fare ; on the second it begins to pall, and fails to tempt the ap petite ; on the third day the pri soner turns from it with obvious distaste. .But he must either eat or starve ; and before the eighth day sets him free he has acquired such loathing for intoxicants that he more often than not spends the rest of his days as a rabid teetotaller. At least, that is what is asserted, and the reader can believe what he likes about it.
MOVEABLE PERCHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
MOVEABLE PERCHES. Many poultry-keepers make the great mistake of fixing their perches to the sides of their poultry-house so that they cannot be moved for cleans ing purposes. The result is that insect vermin find their way into the crevices and any attempt to get at them to clean or disinfect is render ed abortive, livery perch in a poul try-house should be fitted as shown in the annexed illustration, so that they can be lifted out easily and be cleaned quite apart from the interior of the houses. A perch should not be higher than three feet from the floor, and it should be constructed of 2 in. x 2 in. material, with the sharp edges at the top slightly roun ded off. The use of wood with bark upon it is to be deprecated, as the bark only affords a hiding place for red mites and other insect pests. When there is more than one perch in a house, each one should be level with the other so that there is no risk of the fowls fighting for the top most place. They should also be so situated...
Science Notes & News. AID TO NAVIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
Science Notes & News, AID TO NAVIGATION. One of the latest inventions is that of a machine for recording and indicating any departure of a vessel from its true' T:OQfse. The instru ment shows when the steamer is deviating from its course, and when that deviation exceeds a certain limit of time, an alarm bell is rung. Thus there is a record of the ex tent of the deviation, and the atten tion of those who are responsible is drawn to the extent of the change. It is one of the electrical devices which are so numerous and so use ful.
LONG-LIVED BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
! LONG-LIVED BIRDS. Some birds live to a great age. The age of ninety is known to have been reached by a grey parrot, and there are many statements of birds of the parrot family haiving lived for over a century. The raven also is credited with having reached one hundred years. Th'e domestic goose is another long-lived bird. Many instances are known of geese at taining forty years, but it is not said whether they were fit for table purposes at that age. The ordinary domestic fowl is seldom allowed to die of old age, but in some country places old hens are to be seen that have been made pets of, and are al lowed to remain until they are ten or twelve years old, long previously having ceased to lay.
HOW AGE IS MADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
HOW AGE IS MADE. In Europe, especially in France and Germany, there exists a trade in cobwebs to be applied to bottles of wine thought to call for that ad ditional evidence of age. The deal er who furnishes cobwebs to the wine-sellers has likewise a liquor ; that softens and colours the cork \ to make it assume the stains of time. These cobwebs are not spread upon bottles without due1 preparation. They are previously steeped in gum, so that they may the more readily adhere to the bottle. When they have been laid upon a bottle a little soot is sprinkled upon them, which final touch completes the de sired appearance of great age.'
THE NUTRITIVE WALNUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
THE NUTRITIVE WALNUT. History reveals the interesting fact that the ancients held the walnut in such high esteem that they classified it as food only for the gods. Mor tals could, and did, exist on acorns, but walnuts were so delicious in taste and flavour, so palatable, and so nutritious, that they were rever ed as food only for the gods to dine upon'. Modern investigation and modern customs have popularised the uses of the walnut to such an extent that it is now regarded not only as a luxury fyut as a food of great nutritive value. A chemical analysis of the nut, made by a Chi cago physician, shows that it is six times as nutritious as meat. No vegetable or fruit, with the possible exception of the olive, can be com pared with the walnut as a strength giving and fat-producing food. ? All nuts are possessed of elements of j nutrition, but the highest in rank is the walnut.
HOW NATURE SOWS DEEPLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
HOW NATURE SOWS DEEPLY. The gardener sows many of his seeds and bulbs deeply. Nature, without hands, does this work in her own wonderful way. As a com mon and easily-observed instance of this power, the common Cuckoo Pint (Arum maculatum), may be watched. I he seeds are sown nat urally on the surface, where they receive a slight, covering of refuse from the decaying matter that falls on them. When they germinate the shoot does not turn directly up wards and the root downwards, as in most seeds, but a tube is sent out from the seed, which penetrates to some depth before it breaks out in to roots and leaf growth. The primary tuber is thus buried at a good depth for a start. When growth commences again after the resting season, the tuber sends out a number of thick fleshy roots, which penetrate to a great depth. When they attain a certain age the oldest parts begin to contract, and as the tips are firmly fixed into the soil the contraction of the upper parts of the roots drags the tube...
WHAT RELIGION COSTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
WHAT RELIGfON COSTS. The religion bill for America am ounts each year to £20, 000,000. This is the amount paid to the ministers of religion of ail denom'na tions. To this sum must be added about twice that amount expended on forming new missions and church iJailding. There are 164,830 recognised Christian ministers, and some 1,084 rabbis. Baptists and Methodists account for half the number of ministers. New York ministers hold the record for sti pends. The Presbyterian minister at the church in the Fifth-avenue draws ^'3,600 a year, and is pro vided with a manse. Several oth ers have stipends varying from £2,400 to £3,000.
