  • 30 Jan 1909, OUR LETTER BOX. A TALK WITH NATURE.
    "Manuka," Berwick. — Dear Uncle Ben,—Of course, you will understand that by the above title I do not mean that we should go into the bush and literally talk to Nature in our own (or any other people's) language. Far from it. When I mean is that you and I and your other nephews and nieces should, in fancy, take a little stroll into the bush and converse with Nature by observing and learning some of her almost impenetrable wonders. We shall first wend our way (all being agreeable) into some ti-tree scrub, the naturalist's delight. On going up to one of the trees we find that it is spotted here and there with different colored substances, which protrude from the tree, about an inch or more. One of the party tries to break one off, but finds, to his surprise, that it is very tough and wiry; also that it will not come off without a good deal of pulling—at length tearing with such force that a quantity of bark comes with it.
    We now have a lengthy discussion as to what the curio is, and, coming to the right conclusions (a) that it is a species of fungus, (b) that it is a parasite on the ti-tree, we move on. We have not gone far when one of the nephews startles us by exclaiming, "Hullo, what's that?" One of the nervous nieces gets behind you, Uncle Ben, in case of accidents, but it is needless, for "that" on examination proves to be nothing more than a harmless 'possum. This wee animal is timid, and does not live long in captivity, although it makes a good pet. Its tail has a peculiar roughness which enables it "to such dexterous deeds perform. Now we come upon a small creek which twists and turns in all directions like a huge serpent until you get quite muddied, unless you have the "bump of locality." Here is the aquatic naturalist's paradise, for in teh creek abound myriads of interesting insects from the tiny mosquito "wrigglers" to the full-grown dragon-fly. Here is one of he latter settling on a reed. We have a fine chance of examining him closely, and, by so doing open another door for our store of knowledge.
    How beautifully he is marked, and how lightly he glides here and there over the water. This individual fly is divided into a certain number of parts or joints, and every second one is of a deep blue, while the rest are black. There are many different colored dragon flies, some red, some golden, some long, some short, but all are magnificent, as are all things of Nature. So we ramble on, here, and there, and everywhere, until it is dusk, and until we can walk no more, except towards home. We are tired and dirty, some of us dishevelled, but happy in that we have discovered something new in Nature's book—the book of God.—I am, Uncle Ben, your loving nephew, N. ROMAINE WALKER, aged 13 years 9 months.5
  • 13 May 1911, Dear Cinderella,—In the following paragraphs, I shall attempt to describe the way we are spending our holidays, i.e., the various modes we employ in catching different species of sea-fish. Floundering, that is, spearing flounders is a very popular, exciting, and sometimes rather dangerous sport. There are five things needed for floundering—(1) favourable weather; (2) a "spear"; (3) a very bright lamp; (4) a pair of waders; and (5) a game bag. A calm, night is a necessity as, with waves, it is very hard to see the bottom where the flounder lie.
    The "spear" is merely a fairly long stick with a sharp bit of stout wire fixed to the end. As floundering is done at night a very bright and dazzling light is necessary and the best for the purpose is an acetylene gas lamp. Waders are merely water-proof pantaloons which cover the entire feet and legs, and which come up past the waist. The bag in which to keep the fish can be made from anything —from sacking to canvas. And now, having these five advantages, just mentioned, let us wade quietly into the water and commence operations. Keeping the lamp turned on the water with one hand, we hold the "spear" with the other, and, as we move slowly along, watch the bottom for a flat, oval body with two black, staring eyes; directly this is discerned, we drive our spear straight as a die through the body and haul up a kicking, protesting flounder which we deposit hurriedly into our bag. Many a time while floundering, have I almost trodden upon a dazzled little octopus, too frightened to move much less attack; now and again, too, one comes across a young shark or "gummy," and this why I have said that floundering has a spice of danger in it which, however, makes it all the more attractive. Another interesting, though common place fishery is that of the flathead. For this style of fishing only three things are absolutely necessary—a boat, the proper bait, and the knowledge of the locality where flathead abound. As to the boat, if you do not own one, a craft can be hired fairly cheaply by the hour from any fisherman. The bait relished by flathead is flathead, though they are also very fond of squid, a relation to our friend the octopus. Let us suppose we have reached the flathead "grounds"; the bait having been sliced into small lumps, fix one of the latter to the hook so that it completely covers the end. Now let put twenty yards or so of line into the boat, and, grasping the line a few feet from tlie sinker, give it a few whirls round then let it go, and whiz! out it flies far into the sea. Hold on till you feel the sinker touch bottom then pull up a little so that you can feel the jerk when Mr. Flathead takes a passing snatch. Often, when flatlieading, if I may coin a word, a "gummy" is booked, and after a hard pull is generally landed. He is killed by lifting him up on the hook and banging him hard down on the side of the boat. It sounds brutal no doubt, but in reality, it is extremely merciful, as one blow will finish the young maneater. Well, Cinderella, I hope I have made my self sufficiently interesting for a place in your list of friends as well as in the competition. I shall, now close, remaining your new friend, N. ROMAINE WALKER, "Auburn House," Goodall Street, Auburn. Age: 15 yrs. 9 months.
    [A good letter. Write again. — Cinderella.]6

  • 26 Aug 1911, MEAT PRESERVATION.
    LAUNCESTON. Friday— Mr George P. Brydon arrived in Launceston to day from South Africa, representing the Hens patent method for preserving meat. The inventor, who is a South African, seems to have discovered the secret of preventing decomposition setting in, which it does so early under ordinary conditions in the hot weather. Mr. Brydon is provided with credentials of exceptionally high merit from many of the leading medical men, and health inspectors of the South African colonies. One test is especially interesting. Over 1,000 head of oxen were killed at Zoutpansbursr, and treated with this method. The carcases were sent on a journey by mule carts and trains lasting over five days, no special provision being made for their storage, and they arrived at Johannesburg in excellent condition, and were subsequently distributed for human consumption. In another instance a carcase retained its quality when treated with the
    Hens method, after being exposed to the glaring rays of the sun for 14 days. Mr. Brydon is a Tasmanian native, and well-known on the North West Coast. He was for some years prior to going to South Africa in the Tasmanian Education Department. He leaves for Burnie on Tuesday.10
  • 27 Jun 1918, There have been many changes in Berwick recently. Mr Brydon, who has purchased Mr Cottell's property on the Manuka road, is now in residence there. Mr Cottell has purchased Mrs Maxwell's property in Harkaway.11
