UPPER DERWENT THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 22 February 1934
UPPER DERWENT THE WEATHER. The weather this week has been unsettled, changeable and cloudy at times, but still no rain. Everything is dcry, and many people have been carting water for household purposes for months. The Derwent River and tributaries are low. , Mr H. W. Shoobridge states that the rainfall for this district since April 1, 1933, has been 11 inches, whereas it is usually double that amount. BUSH FIRE RELIEF. 1 The residents of Upper Derwent have every reason, to feel proud pf Trooper Cornish and the local men who helped to fight the fires at Ux bridge and Moogara. Trooper Cor nish also did splendid work at Fitz gerald, when the previous fires were at' their worst. The land owners here are rallying to help the settlers, most of them having offered to look after the stock. The arrangements are in the hands of Mr Angus Shoo bridge. Mr Thos. Terry and Mr R. O. Shoobridge have helped the set tlers generously. The Rev. S. M. Mortyn has visited the fire-stricken areas continuou...
Aerial Transport REDUCTIONS IN COST [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 22 February 1934
Aerial Transport REDUCTIONS IN COST A summary ,of the British aerial transport, issued in London reports remarkable reductions in the cost of commercial flying. When the first commercial aeroplanes inaugurated a daily service between London and Paris, the fare was twenty guineas; to-day it is five1 guineas. In 1919, it cost 2s 6d to send a letter by ah* mail from London to Paris, the cost is now 4d. From the small begin nings of a cross-Channel service, Imperial Airways fly over 2,000*000 miles a year, carrying 60,'000 passen gers. The extension of the airways has- been made possible by facilities for fuelling and servicing which have been arranged throughout the world by the Shell Company. A .future possibility is a British air mail service across the Atlantic, connecting with the airways system of Canada, and' furnishing new trunk 'routes; to other British domin ions. Monoplanes of the Atalanta type, similar to the Astraea which recently visited Australia, are likely to be extensi...
Some Old Legends APPLES AND ORANGES [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 22 February 1934
Some Old Legends APPLES AND ORANGES In spite of its beauty, its golden skin, its perfumed blossoms, the orange has never worked its way into the mysterious human heart, -nor! has it been used symbolically. .Orange blossom, . the emblem of- purity, is, certainly, worn. by the bride, but this. Saracen . custom has only become popular with us in modern ' times. Cardinal Wolsey usually carried' .'an orange as a poman'der and protection against plague. In the reign of Queen Anne, orangeries were, the rage, and most large houses had their special orange nurseries. But ever since the god of strife threw the famous Apple of Discord for 'the most beautiful' to claim, the apple has been the supreme fruit in legend. It symbolises the abstract things of life — -all the' things we long for, many of them* without a name. It is both earthly and spiritual. The Apple of Discord was claimed by Juno, Minerva and Venus — fertility, wisdom and love. But - the gods could not agree which of these was the ...

Mounting slowly, as if- reluctant to break the^spell, they followed the little stream up the slope to where it nar rowed and at last lost itself among the firs. ? Adela stopped. She' frowned at ner watcn. . 'We're going' to be later than I thought, unless ? ' She swerv'ed her» horse, seized with a sudden thought.

WHY TWO EARS? [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 22 February 1934
WHY TWO EARS? It was a saying of a wise man that we have one mouth and two ears, in order, that we may listen twice as much as we speak. A teacher once quoted this remark to her pupils, and later to see how well her instruc tion was remembered. She asked: Why is it that we havestwo ears and. only one mouth?' ' : ,: . One bright pupil, forgetting the philosopher'^, explanation, and not thinking the question a very, hard one, said: 'Because we. should- not have room on our face for two mouths, and we should look too crooked if we only had one ear.' The teacher asked another pupil if she knew. . . .. 'Yes, ma'am,' answered No. 2. 'So that what we hear may go in at one ear and out at the other.'
