Camperdown chronicle printing works material workmanship and Price equal to that of City firms for bronchial coughs Cotef in Flint ? irrigated pastures interesting observations Longere Nong experiments Many interesting observations upon the problems of irrigated pasture management Are contained in a re port of the farm manager of the Longere Nong agricultural College or. I. M. Tullo which was presented to the Council of agricultural education at its meeting on wednes Day last. Of particular value a e or. Tulloh s references to various aspects of sheep grazing while figures showing that the carrying capacity of the entire pasture area at the farm for the last twelve months was 12.2 sheep per acre strikingly indicates the benefits following scientific irrigation. The report stated that while thei establishment and development of irrigated pastures presented Many prob a lems the research work conducted by the department of agriculture combined with local experience indicated fairly definitely along which hues Success might be expected. The development and maintenance of irrigated pasture of a reasonably High Standard was not a difficult. Matter. The growing of such pastures How Ever was expensive and their con version into profits was a scientific business. The carrying and fatten ing capacity of pastures appeared to be two totally different propositions. A Large number of sheep could be carried per acre and maintained in Good store condition. Sheep under that system at first ate the most Palat Able portions of the pasture and Dur ing the succeeding Days ate probably a lesser amount daily of the less at Tractive portions. While sheep might carry store condition under such treatment it was questionable whether the interests of the pastures were not being placed before those of the sheep. In contrast to that system was one under which the sheep were wholly considered and Ideal conditions were provided for the rapid putting on of weight. While admitting the Superior Ity of natural Spring feeding Over that of. Irrigated pasture an important feature of the latter was that some thing Akin to Spring conditions were artificially provided for six to eight months of the year. It therefore appeared that to give preference to the welfare of sheep Over the welfare of pasture some degree of selective Graz. Ing were necessary with resultant waste to some proportion of the Pas Ture a Point in the production of the pasture might be reached above which it was not economically sound to produce it. A satisfactory Solu Tion would probably be found in a system combining High carrying Capa City heavy stocking and scientific supplementary feeding. Obituary mrs.

The dark Ages of flying the history of Hying is As old As civilisation itself writes Elizabeth Hansen in the new children s Section of the August australian journal centuries ago Man watched the flight of Birds and wished that he too could Fly. Egypt. Assyria and Greece All have legends which Tell of attempted flights made by men trying to imitate Birds and paying for those attempts with their lives. People believed then that god did not mean human beings to Fly. And punished them when they tried to do so. Nevertheless time after time differ ent men fashioned huge wings which they fastened about their arms and bodies and flapped often jumping from a great height to test out their theories. Many died and Many other incurred grave injuries. History tells that for nearly Twenty centres the problem of flight puzzled men until 1903, when two americans the Wright Brothers solved it. An English Monk Oliver of males Bury is often mentioned among the first experimenters. The next Seri Ous attempt was made by Dan i an italian about the year 1500. He constructed some sort of gliding apparatus with which he flew a distance of 250 Yards before crashing on to a roof and injured himself severely. Later Guidotti constructed a gliding machine of whalebone covered with feathers which actually made a l flight of 400 Yards before giving Way. At this time Deranzio was experimenting with parachutes. In ig7s came a French Locksmith who designed an apparatus of rods and hinged flaps which were worked by the hands and feet. His apparatus was looked upon As an ingenious piece of work but of Little practical use. For a Long while after this interest in flying died until it was revived again in the eighteenth Century. In 1783, the first hot air balloon invent-1 de by the Brothers Montgolfier went up at Versailles and for a time the men who considered that flight could be accomplished Only by mechanical Means Felt beaten. They did not realize that ballooning is not True flight nor did men Stop to consider that there is a great difference be tween a Bas bag at the mercy of every wind that blows and a machine capable of conquering the wind and Able to shape its own course. Just at the time when the steam engine was invented sir George Cay Ley saw that both vertical and horizontal rudders were necessary to steer aircraft and foresaw that the Ideal supporting surface of a machine must be slightly curved. He set Many problems in Power driven flight although nearly one Hundred years were to pass before his suggestions could be carried out. Five years after Queen Victoria came to the throne w. S. Henson built an aeroplane which much resembled the modern monoplane and got our designs for a steam engine with which to drive his machine. He was on the right trick but Lack of funds prevented him from going fur ther. At of the nineteenth Cen Tury came the Ideal Power producing engine the internal combustion motor. Between is9s and 1907 motor cars developed enormously perfecting the engine in various ways and fitting in for aeroplane work although the motor of thirty years ago was a very crude and heavy thing compared with the modern aeroplane engine. Finally the Wright Brothers after years of Experiment actually hew successfully by Power. In 1906, Santos Dumont. Who had already achieved Fame with dirigible balloons made a flight in a biplane at Baga Telle France. Two years later Orville Wright was Able to maintain flying Speed for Over an hour. Up till the time of the War. Avia Tion made Progress by leaps and Bounds until the diesel engines Pas Senger planes air liners Etc., of the present Day were reached. Even now to quote a War Pilot who is now a commercial Pilot at Essen Don flying is still in its infancy. We have made tremendous Steps for Ward and will make still More until the Job is not ninety per cent Pilot but ninety per cent plane and flying is made absolutely Twenty people were injured when two trams collided in Sydney. Five were taken to Hospital. Five of the 10 Light tanks ordered for the australian military forces will be for Victoria and five for new South Wales. Extensions and improvements to repatriation buildings in Victoria Are being carried out by the repatriation commission at a Cost of �100,000. Chaotic traffic conditions resulting from sheep being driven on the main Road Between Albury and Wodonga have caused resentment in the District. Useful hints for the Home laundress. Here Are some simple rules for re moving such dirt and stains As resist the Ordinary washing processes. All stains should be taken out As soon As made and most certainly before Wash ing the fabric As when subjected to a combination of the Alkali of soap and hot water they Are Likely to become As fixed a dyes. C brass stains can be removed by rubbing them with a Little fat and then using soap. Ink stains will generally come out if put at once into milk and left in until the milk gets sour. Putting pow dered Chalk on the stains and moisten ing with milk is another Good Way of removing them. Tea Coffee and Cocoa stains Are Best sprinkled with Borax then soaked in cold water and rinsed thoroughly in boiling water. Paint varnish pitch or tar should first be softened with grease or Oil and then be treated with pure Turpen tip benzine or naphtha. Wine stains. Rub these with com Mon Salt at once. And then treat the with boiling water like fruit stains. Medicine stains generally yield to rectified spirits of wine. Lodine comes out by using Chloro form. Iron with Salt and Lemon juice will sometimes remove this. If very obstinate however oxalic acid is sometimes used but this is Apt to harm the material. Orange and Lemon stains. Use for these a weak solution of ammonia. Freaks of lightning. Cities Are much Freer from damage by lightning than country places be cause of the arresting and conducting Power of the High buildings and Quan Tity of metallic substances. A sky scraper building for instance is a comparatively Safe place when the Humble farm House is greatly in Dan Ger. Eiffel Tower in Paris is the greatest fender of lightning in the world. So powerful is it that a storm passing near it will almost subside to far As can be discerned to resum again when some distance beyond. Many of the Queerest pranks of Light Ning Are played in out of the Way places. At a farm a Bolt made a Long Furrow in a Tow of potatoes thus actually digging them for an owner. After a Long ride through a storm a woman placed her infant which she had carried with her in bed. Soon afterwards she discovered that it had been killed by lightning by a Bolt that she herself had not Felt. A Bolt of lightning was attracted by the steel Rod of an umbrella carried by a Man. And besides severely Burn ing him on the right Side it Tore off his shoes and Flung them Twenty feet or More away. To keep servants. Give your maid As Good wages As you can pay her regularly or give her reason Why she should wait. Do not expect her to be a mind Reader but Tell her just what you want done. Give her As pleasant a room As possible and let her have time to keep it in order. Do not talk As if your own were the Only right Way to do things. Never allow children to treat her with disrespect or make her unnecessary work. Never reprimand her before Chil Dren or strangers. A command Given in an abrupt disagreeable tone will often make her angry and unhappy. If you appreciate her work Tell her so sometimes. If she is Cross or irritable be patient with her. She May be suffer ing acutely mentally or physically. Our wonderful brain. The discovery of a special speech Region in the brain writes or. We. Hanna Thomson furnished a key for unlocking one chamber after another of this mysterious Organ of the mind. Even As regards the faculty of speech itself it was soon revealed that it had three separate anatomical seats in the brain one for hearing words another for seeing and a third for speaking them. How separate and distinct from this uttering Centre the brain for Reading is was illustrated by a lady patient of mine who was astonished one morning at finding she could not read a word in anything whether news paper or Book. She thought some thing must be wrong with her eyes but she saw everything about the room As Well As Ever and could sew and knit. I tested her speech care fully and found that she could hear every word addressed to her and could talk remarkably Well. Her Reading brain Centre however had been destroyed in the night without her waking by a plug in the Little artery which supplies that place and she forthwith became As illiterate As a papuan Savage nor did she learn to read again succumbing to apoplexy two years afterwards. Generally More than one speech Centre is injured by an apoplectic Haemorrhage in the brain As was the Case with a patient of mine a gentle Man who one morning lost not Only All Power of utterance but also All ability to read. He could however hear words perfectly and strange to Tell he proved that the place for Arith metical figures is in a different brain locality from that for words because he could read and write figures and calculate every kind of sum in Large business transactions which he successfully conducted for seven years afterwards without once being Able to speak a word or oven to Road his own signature. It is not the merely cold or the merely emotional woman who can in fluence a Man s life but the woman with self control which in its High by form. Is self abnegation Mere idleness though it May be necessary in sickness can never by a pleasure for Long to a healthy Matt. 1 eighteen terrorists said to be spies for Trotsky have been executed by the soviet in Caucasia. Millions and millionaires. A million of Money takes a Good Deal of counting and a Long while to spend. Few people have seen a million in Golden sovereigns and even Rocke Feller is probably not among the few. If that notorious metallurgist were compelled to count it into sacks and to carry the sacks he would be glad to pay handsome wages to somebody to help him before he got through. It will perhaps have been noticed that the Only real difference Between the average Man who has a million and the average Man who has to is simply a million while they both live and nothing at All when they Are both dead which suggests to the philosophic mind that everybody is his own millionaire if be has sufficient for his wants. Some men make a million out of four Pence a Penny and a Coster s wheelbarrow. Others make a million by accidentally falling up against Klon Dike. Others could not. Make a million if they started with �099,999 19s. Lid., for they would spend the interest be fore they go i. And As much As pos sible of the principal while it was earn ing interest. Most millionaires live and die in America where the trusts come from and or. Asquith is the Lucky Chancellor of the exchequer who has a Chance of reducing the in come tax out of the death duties be levies on the others. Great statesmen great authors great men of science great doctors and other useful people do not become millionaires no because they have any objection but because they cannot earn the Money. The truth is no Man Ever did earn a million or Ever can and the whole secret of being a millionaire is to know How to make other people earn it for you. It takes thou Sands of people years to make one millionaire and he is not always Worth the time and trouble. For with some the old indictment stands who Marketh haste to be Rich shall not be innocent. 1 an unfortunate Challenge. A Box of this Cement Given free to anybody who can break any of these apart was the Challenge displayed on the stall of a pavement merchant a the East end of Tokio. There were spools blocks of Wood and other articles that had been cemented together. Most of them bore Marks of having been struggled with by persons whose hands were Grimy in vain attempts to wrench the pieces apart. A Swarthy Little fellow who had stopped in front of the Faker s stand pointed to a round Peg that appeared to have been dipped in the Cement and driven into a Good sized chunk of Wood and asked him what would be the Reward for pulling it ont. If you can pull that out said the merchant ill give you a the Peg projected a Little More than a Quarter of an Inch above the Block. The Swarthy Little fellow placed his left hand on the Block to hold it Down took the Peg Between the thumb and forefinger of his right hand and pulled it out with apparent ease a portion of the Wood coming away with it. Bless me gasped the Man behind the table. What Are you me japanese replied the Little fellow pocketing the Silver and walking away with a Grin on his face. Japanese dentists use their fingers As for Epps and a part of their train ing consists in exercises and work which develop an amount of Power in their hands which would be incredible if it were not so Well authenticated. Wrongly convicted. Proved miscarriages of Justice such As Beck was the victim of to say Noth ing of problematical ones like the Rolls and the Edalji cases Are far More com Mon than most people suppose. In deed one High authority estimates that no fewer than 20,000 Orcas jul convictions take place every year in London alone. Why then do they not attract More notice than they do the answer is that most of the victims Are people in Humble circumstances who have neither the Means nor ledge necessary Iov fixing Public at Tention of their misfortunes. Consequently they go unrewarded. Who for instance knows anything of the Case of John Kay twice convicted and sentenced to seven years penal servitude for a crime he did not commit and for which he was after wards pardoned and yet his Case was in a sense in even harder one than Becks in that it proved absolutely ruinous to himself caused Bis wife to go hopelessly insane and drove his principal witness to commit Sui cide. Then again there was the Case of the Brothers Grimme sentenced in 1902 to penal servitude for stealing a Van Load of Tea from the Minorics. Their innocence was established solely through the efforts of a reporter on one of the London evening papers and they were released by order of the Home Secretary after serving a few weeks Only of their respective sentences. Another exceedingly hard Case and one which did not even attract the Small amount of Public attention be stowed upon the two preceding ones was that of a Man convicted in 1897 of assaulting a Young lady cyclist in Wales. Tho Man proved a perfect Alibi. Indeed or. Justice Grantham who tried the Case remarked sarcastically that it was altogether too perfect and sentenced him to five years penal servitude. Yet Only recently it was demonstrated beyond the possibility of a doubt that the Man was quite in Nocent and release and a Pardon Fol Lowed As a of course. An old Quaker went into a Book store and an impertinent Salesman wishing to have a joke at his expense said to him you arc from the coun try Aren t you yes quietly answered the Quaker. Then Here s just the thing for you Gaid the clerk holding up a Book. What is it asked the Quaker. It s an essay on the rearing of Friend said the Quaker thou Hadst better present that to Taj collapse of the Salesman.
