WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. "My boy," said Uncle Hiram, "don't, for pity's sake, look glum, j An' don't set tight your lips as it they speechless were, an' dumb, When soinc hard task's before you, ior, though laboring like a Turk, Tho happiest fellow's he who sings or whistles at his work. A lesson from the buzz-saw learn, that rings with honest glee, While Into lumber it converts the trunk o£ stoutest tree, That hums a low-toned melody when easiest's its lot, An' always sings the loudest when it strikes tho hardest knot. "To make of every task a joy you'll find's an art worth while; The hardest problems of the world are solved by those who smile. Abe Lincoln, when affairs of state perplexed him, deigned to chaff, Well knowing fogs would lift before the sunshine of a laugh. He joked when those about him stood in woe and gloom profound, Yet 'twas his laughter-wrinkled brow that fame undying crowned. He smiled, or likely chuckled, through each problem's softest spot, But shook with hearty l...

AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914

v AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. The Australian eucalyptus, or, as It is commonly called, the gum tree, has a world-wide reputation. It has been grown successfully in many countries, and in New Zealand it has been found that its growth is, in favorable spots, faster than in Australia. In Brazil, in which country the eucalyp tus was first Introduced a quarter of a century ago, the authorities have came to recognise its intrinsic value for timber. Some ten years ago the systematic culture of the tree was be gun, and recently Senhor Andrade, Chief of the Forest Service in Brazil, came to Australia to secure further varieties, and to consult with Mr. Maiden, Director of the Sydney Bo tanic Gardens, who is regarded as the chief authority on eucalypti. The Gov ernment of Brazil desireB to cultivate the tree for the sake of the timber, which is eminently suitable for rail .way sleepers and also for fuel for railway locomotives.

A CURIOUS PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914

A CURIOUS PROCESSICHT. In the deep pine forestB of Norway the wood-cutters sometimes find a serpentine Object, fifty feet long, crawling slowly over the ground. If they did not know that it was made up of millions of little worms, they might bo frightened by its peculiar appearance. These worms, called the sciara, gather during July and August In large numbers, preparatory to migrat ing in search of food or for change of condition. When setting out on this journey, they stick themselves to gether and form a huge serpentine maSs, often reaching a length of be tween forty and fifty feet and several inches in thickness. As the sciara is only on an average about three thirty-seconds of an inch in length, and barely wider than a fine needle, the number required to compose a line ofHhe size above men tioned is enormous. Their pace Is very slow, and upon meeting an obstacle, such as a stick or stone, they will either writhe over or around it, sometimes breaking into bodies for this purpose...

NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914

NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN For many years Europeans strove in vain to master the art of a certain kind of painting executed by the Chinese. It was a comparatively easy matter to obtain the materials, viz., the brushes, -paints and the particular kind of paper used—but there the matter ended. They failed to get the paper to "take" the paints. Persuasion and bribes alike failed to extract from the wily Oriental the secret of applying the colors, and for years the art remained the knowledge of the Chinese. It fell to the lot of a young English bank-clerk to discover the secret. One day—unknown to the artists— he- was watching them at work. He was struck by the fact that each time before, dipping the brush into the paints, they rubbed it through their hair vigorously 'a few times. Ho procured the necessary mater ials and tried to put the colors on, in the ordinary way of course, without success. He then cleaned the brush, rubbed it through his hair a few times and again essayed the expe...

Quite Lively Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914

Quite Lively Enough. - Seated on an empty box in front of a log cabin in the Far West was a man cleaning a double-bnrrelled gun. A passing tourist Btopped to chat, and asked him how far it watt to the nearest neighbor's. "A trifle over two miles," he re plied. "As far as that? You must find it rather lonely here." "No, I can't aay as X do. You ;see, I mortgaged this claim for four hun dred dollars. And I couldn't pay, so they foreclosed." The stranger murmured an exclam ation of surprise. "That was two yearB ago, and the sheriff has been trying to get posses sion ever since. ' He comes twice a week, and we have a shot at each other; and at least twice a week some idiot comes along and wants to know if I ain't lonely; and then there are thieving trampB and rattlesnakes; so this life is about as exciting as I like. There comes the sheriff now. You had better lie down behind that log, and keep clear of his gun." The value of quiet; comfort ■ auu shelter to farm animals is son mani fest...

THE AERIAL GULF STREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 18 April 1914

THE AERIAL GULF STREAM. ' The Gulf Stream, when it leaves the Gulf of Mexico, enters the Atlantic with a speed of 8 kilometres an hour. It is GO kilometres wide and 400 metres deep, and dally transports about 40 millions of milliards of ca lories. This enormous quantity of heat, of which it is almost impossible to obtain an exact idea, plays a funda mental role in the general climatology of the earth. Strangely enough, it is this stream ot hot water, exercising its temperature action on the coasts it waters, which is the direct cause of the existence of deserts. And this is how. Water is one of the bodies in which heat is the most easily pre served, and consequently the Gulf Stream, even in high latitudes, still keeps an enormous quantity of heat. The masses of air that rest on these hot waters are kept at a temperature higher than the surrounding tempera ture, and form a veritable aerial gulf stream superposed over the marine current. But the aerial current is not like the marine o...

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. A Russian wedding is described by a traveller who was one of the invited guests. It was to take place at S p.m., but the bride, of course, was late. Instead of arriving at eight o'clock, it was nearly nine before she made her appearance. She was pre ceded by her nephew, a little boy five years old, holding an image of "Our Lord." The child gave this to the priest, and then the service began. Neither organ nor any musical in strument Is allowed in the Russian Churcli, so the choir, consisting of ffve men, chanted. The priest alter nately read and the choir "chanting went on for about half an hour. The priest then addressed several words to the bride and bridegroom. Two gentlemen, "garcons d'honneur," or groomsmen, stepped forward an'! were each given a crown, which they were to hold over the bride and bride groom's head until the end of the Borvice. The priest then put a wedding-ring on the third finger of the right hand of each, and the chanting went on as before....

Barbara had seen a good deal of Paris, but not nearly so much as j alie would have liked to. The count ess, who was a victim of moods, had a melancholy one soon after they ar rived in the Gay City, and went out very little ot an evening, and Bar bara had to remain with her in her rooms at the Elysee Paiaco Hotel. But after a few days they went on to Cambo, and in the charming little Chateau Barbara was supremely happy. The view over the country was su perb, and the air of the Pyrenees was in glorious that only to breathe it was to feel the joy of life. In Cambo she found the countess less exigent. Madame had visitors, end Barbara was not always invited to join them. She was told that she might make little excursions on her own account, and she did not fall to do so. The countess went out now more frequently than she had done in r'aris—and Blie went alone. The gossip of the servants at the Chateau speedily enlightened Bar bara as to the change ' in he count ess's habits. "Madame is i...

CHAPTER X. Upon the Road to England. I. It was not dark when she went down the great drive towards the sea road, and the Forth Bridge could still be discerned far away at the narrows of the estuary. Behind her lay the gloomy pile of Aberfeldy Castle; looking just the same as It had done at the hour of dawn just five days ago. Much had happened in those intervening hours. She had heard and answered the story of a man's love; had been offered a home and had refused it; had been In vited to become the mistress of all that splendid domain and had answered that she darejiot. Now she was just • fceila Shane again, going out friend less Into the world, and knowing not . what house would harbor her.

A CHINESE FUNERAL. A most curious sight 1b tho funeral of a Chinee, and In describing tho same It Is necessary briefly to relate the mode oE procedure just prior to and utter death. When a Chinese becomes danger ously ill, it tho relatives consider l.horo Ik no hope of Ills recovery, his face Is turned towards tho window, and once thus turned, he seldom re covers. In passing, 1 think it just as well to mention that In China It Is not necessary to have any medical train- ; ing or pass any qualifying examina tion to hecomc a doctor, but tho aver age Chlneso medico has usually pre-' pared" himself by careful perusal of books written for that purpose pre vious to establishing himself as a curer o£ Ills.

"You've enough to do to keen your self, lad, without buying another, so draw in your, head,- and mind your ears againBt the sides o' the win dow."
