NOTES ON HEALTH Gleanings and Excerpts. A Word to Industrial Workers. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 March 1924
iNOTES ON HEALTH, Gleanings and Excerpts.. By Geo. Shanahan,, Dental Surgeon. A Word to Industrial Workers. One of the factors whrch interferes most with production, on which the best interests of.all concerned n'. the. works in which you are employed de pend, is lost time due to .illness. Sometimes this incapacity for work is only slight, and may not even ne cessitate absence from duty, but no man or woman can produce the best work if below par. At other times the worker' may become so ill as to necessitate long absence from work, which involves him or her in' con siderable loss of wages and expense for medical attendance. Further, -if such.cases are numerous, the p'rodu,' tion capacity of the factory concerned may be considerably inconvenienced through the necessity of engaging, perhaps, less skilled workers to fill the .empty' places. The time lost in this way last.'year .in England amonr those covered by .the. National ' Health - Insirance Scheme, from cases of illness :which ha...
HOME GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 March 1924
HOME GARDENING. By "Heather Jook,' In. reading works on gardening' one is generally -advised to trench deeply to get results; While this advice is applicable in wet coun tries or .in waterlogged soils in dry countries, it is entirely wrong in most soils in countries with a limited rainfall, The reason why deep cultivation is beneficial in wet countries is because the 'soil be cmes soured, and _the continual ex, cess of moisture has a detrimeptal effect on the soil 6rganisms, whose function it is to convert the available plant foods in, the soil into a form in which the- plahte can assimilate them, Deep tillage in such cases provides drainage and aeration of the soil, which en courages the development,; of those beneficial organisms; whereas a sour, water-logged soil tends towards their extinction. Without the aid of these organisms .it is ? rimposible to get the best results from a garden, :,In conditions which, are the gon eal rule in -Atistralasia; however- incliriatioh to a spars...
SUNSHINE TRAIN SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 March 1924
SUNSHIENE TRAIN SERVICE, TravcIlers during the last week or two have had to put up with much inconvenience. The 7.31 up train one day last week left Sunshine nine jninutcs late, and on other days if it arrives at S:pecer-:r-teet cn time re ceives a rousing cheer.

Agricultural Development in the Wimmera [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 March 1924
Agricultural Development in the Wimmera By J. Leith Gillespie, B.Ag.Sc. To any person interested in agricul ture, especially wheat culture, a trip through the Wimmera during the last few weeks would be full of interest. The Wimmera is recognised as the finest -strip of wheat country in the Commonwealth. Especially during the last few years it has forged rapidly ahead, owing primarily to the wonder. ful richness of the land and adaptabi. lity of the climate, but in no small measure to the progressive attitude oz the farmers of, the district. During the last decade wheat culture has made great strides. Yields of grain haive steadily risen, owing to a bet tel' understanding of the cultural and 'manurial requirements of the wheat plant. Fallowin'g has been al most universally adopted, and with -'the use of graded seed and liberal manuiing, success is almost certain, independent of the season. The farmer as a class has bden called many hard names, one of the. most polite being "conservat...
Should St. Albans Be a Brick Area for Shops? [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 March 1924
Should St. Albans Be a Brick Area for Shops ? A sage once wrote, "The greatest bar against progress was unreasoning prejudice prior to in vestigation. It is not contended that the Keilor Shire Council is prejudiced against the progress of St, Albans, but a little investiga tion may have prevented the fram ing fi a by-law proclaiming that town, along with other parts of .the shire, a brick area in regard to the erection of shops. While it may be a desirable condition in thickly-populated areas and per haps rapidly rising districts, it. is stretching the point a 'litle too far * when .the samee is made applicable to. a-town like St. Albans. There '.is. n ?.wanting for. rtoo'm;'and ii rnumtber of btisinesses are needed to supply the. inhabitants their various needs. It is proposed bv ,a. numberi of enterprising gentle 'men to erect-a couple of shops of wooden structure, ;but' a 'by-la 'w passed :last July allows-:only f&o? buildings of brick.

Did You Know This? [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 March 1924
Did.-You Know This?' All men may be divided into two classes--optimnits and p?asimists. The optimist swells out his chest when itW' rainig, and says, "I live in Sunshine." The pessimist complains of having io frieiidi, yet he never thanks the Sunshine mud for sticking to him, A friend said the other day, "We have no gas in Sunshine?" I *replied'' with a smile, '"I thought there were. councillors and four parsons." A person who rocolves the morning mail in the afternoon ought to be thankful there isn't an evening mail. Lodal parsonis are having a harvest in weddings. I don't wonder, because every time I use the 'phone I get the reply "engaged." People ought to use all their senses.

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 March 1924
POULTRY NOTES. By Tight' Feather, It is our intention each week to give useful information to poultry keepers. Some people may have only a 'dozen hens, and others may have hundredst but proper treatment is ne cessary in all cases to obtain good results. There is plenty of work to be done at this time of the year, as this month the red mites do their deadly worst. It is necessary to clean all the per che~ and pens, and to provide dust baLths by i lling boxes with earth slightly damp, so as to invite the hens to free themselves of the small in sects that live upon their body. The moulting season has now com menced, and to assist the hens to ob taining new feathers, put a little in sectibane in the dust bath. Sweep up all loose feathers in the pens and yards, as the insects cling to the cast off feathers, and if they are not picked up, the insects return to the bodies of the fowls. By making the perches moveable, it is much easier to clean them. The best method is to saturate them with...

CRICKET. SUNSHINE v. Y.M.C.A. The above teams met in the seco'id last routld of the competition on the Amateur Sports Ground on February 9 and 16, and the game resulted in a win for Sunshine by an innings and 29 runs.

The innings was -continued on the second day, and the' total taken to 118 before the *re maining wickets had fallen. J.. El lingsen batted well for 37 not out, and others to show form were Taylor 22 and Carrick '9. Y.M.C.A. at their second attempt could do nothing against the howlin, of McGrath (6 for 2) and W...
AGRICULTURAL WORKING FALLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 March 1924
AGRICULTURAL WORKING FALLOW. By "Heather Jock." This subject has come to be one of the most important studies of the cereal grower of Australia. Iie has his own particular class of soil to deal with, and he has climatic condi tions which vary from season to season, and these matters compel him to study and grapple with his own individual case. It has been clearly demonstrated throughout the hay and grain growing parts of Aus. tralia to-day that a clearly-defined principle exists or has been discovered, which must be the aim of every grower who desires the maximum results from his labours. Just how that condition is to be achieved in each case rests entirely with the judgment, industry and ability of the individual grower. We have in this country of ours up till now been too prone to follow the principles in ag riculture which apply to Great Britain and Europe. The conditions in the greater part of Eiurope are vastly different to those obtaining in Australia. People there are general...
