SMOKING WHILE MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
SMOKING WHILE MILKING. Do not allow dogs or loafers to be round at milking time. If any acci dent occurs by which a pail-full or partly full of milk becomes Jlirty, do not try to remedy thiB by straining, but reject all this milk, and rinse the pail. We remember one day, when on a visit, seeing a milking hand smoking a pipe. Suddenly, he spoke to the cow, and the pipe fell from / the man's mouth into the bucket. He made one grab into the milk-bucket, put the wet pipe into his pocket, and went on milking! Then, what about the ash from a pipe or cigarette fall ing about everywhere? Sack the man or boy who smokes while milking.

HOW TO NEUTRALISE DANGEROUS STOMACH ACIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
HOW TO NEUTRALISE DANGEROUS STOMACH ACIDS. Few people besides physicians real ise the importance of keeping the food contents of the stomach free from acid fermentation. Healthy normal diges tion cannot take place while the deli cite lining of the stomach is being in flamed and distended by acid and wind-the results of fermenting food in the stomach. To securo perfect digestion, fermentation must be stopped or prevented, and the acid /neutralised. For this purpose physi cians usually recommend getting a little'bisurated magnesia from the chemist and.taking half a-teaspoonful in a little hot' or cold water im mediately after eating. They recom mend bisurated magnesia because it is pleasant to take, has no disagreeable after effects, and instantly stops fer mentation, neutralises the acid and makes the sour acid food bland, sweet and easily digested. The regular use of bisurated mag nesia-be sure you get tho bisurated, as other kinds of magnesia are of little value-is an absolute guar...
CORRESPONDENCE. EMPIRE DAY CONCERT. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. EMPIRE DAY CONCERT. (TO THE EDITOR.) Sir,-I was much amusoii on re ceiving last Friday's issue from a friend to I'ead "One of tlio Public's" latest. 1 It was nn exainplo of "When you'have nocaso. to put forward, abuse the other side," and was simply an outburst of personal abuse from beginning to end. The writer is apparently trying to drag a "herring across the trail," and-toojc good caro to touch neither of tho two main points that I have raised, viz., "The treatment of. the school for the work done, and "the non-production of a balance-sheet." I didn't write to start a newspaper controversy, but simply to place these matters before the public, and this I was advised to do by some members of the committee and men of standing in the town. I made many friends during my stay, in Glunes, and apparently ? at least one foe, and I don't c;ir&lt;5 a jot who "One of the Public" is, Uut I am quite willing if he would only stop into the light of day, to lot the public...
IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
IMMIGRATION. In accounting for the increase in capital introduced into the Stato by the 229 immig.ant land seekers of 1913, es coiujiiu'ti l witlj that of the 383 land seekurs of 1912 (tlio re spective amounts being d£l 13,200 and tlC3,G53), the authorities at the Immigration 13uram claim that a wiser poljoy of selection has been in troduced in Great Britain than, in former years. "We have been more insistent of late," said one of them, "that land seekers arriving shall have ?! wim«)VTO eauU of #3Q0, fecjievieivw lias proved that to bo successful a new land 'settlor requires' that amount. During the past year settlers lavo had a much higher avorago atiioi nt than previously, and the result is (reflected ill the increased taking up of holdings latterly." Tlio indications for 1914, according to reports to hand, showed a probability of new arrivals increasing. Some of the mills in Lmotshiro were closing down, and many people would bo out of employment. But there was one big factor whic...
TROUBLE WITH RURAL WORKERS. AN UNEXPECTED DIFFICULTY [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
TROUBLE WITH RURAL WORKERS. AN UNEXPECTED DIFFICULTY The trouble between tlio Rural Workers' Union and the Wagga Farmers and Settlers' Association is entering on a serious phase. Origin ally, the trouble was apparently con fined to the rural workers and farmers. The farmers believed that because they were able to secure sufficient labor to take off the crops the trouble was ended. The organisers of the Rural "Workers' Union, however, have been quietly preparing for organised assistance from the other unions. It is rumored arrangements had been completed, by which all unions would refuse to handle wheat arid produce harvested by or carried to the railways by non-union labor. The farmers are driving their own teams to the railways, where, at a number of yards, the farmers are combining to Stack the wheat or load it on to trucks. The rural workors'' representatives have now notified buying agents that wheat stacked under these conditions will be declared "black," and even if the wheat ...
IRON FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
IRON FOR FOWLS. Iron is present In the fowl's body; part of this iron is in an organised form in the red corpuscles of the blood. The total amount of iron js small, but nevertheless, It Is of great importance, and a deficiency re sults in anaemia. One frequently finds that eggs laid by insufficiently fed fowls have pale yolks. The coloring of the yolk is due to pigments, and, possibly, to the phospholipine termed lecithin. Iron, in an organised form, is found in the ash of the egg. Vegetable foods, es pecially clover and lucerne, are rich in minerals, and their use results in richly-colored yolks. Anaemic fowls may be easily treated by administer ing to each five drops of perchloride of iron in a teaspoon of well-sweeten ed milk. This is a very cheap tonic, and is better in many ways than the ordinary Bulphate of iron (copperas).
FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
RATTENING POULTRY. The best and, at the same time, moat economical method of fattening ail kinds of poultry is to keep them' in confinement for a short time before they are required for table. A good deal o£ judgment, however, has to bo exercised in deciding the length of time tills confinement is to last, for if overdone, even in the slightest de gree, the birds rapidly lose flesh and. go back in condition. Strange as it may seem, once this begins, no amount of feeding will restore either their weight or condition till after they have regained their liberty again. For this reason the poultry must be confined for too long a period before they are required.
FOR THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
FOR THE PARMER.. HOUSING POULTRY. If all poultry houses o£ the closed In type had an end or one side o£ them knocked out, disease would dim inish by one-halt, and the profits from the birds compelled to roost in them would, probably, be doubled. It is impossiblo to conceive anything more insanitary and conducive to disease than the ordinary type of fowlhouse one Bees in the country. It is cramp ed, dark and without any ventilation, except the many draughty cracks. It is little wonder that going from the foetid atmosphere into often an un sheltered yard the birds contract colds, and soon become a prey to dis ease. It were far better to let the hens roost in trees. The sleeping Quarters of fowl3 should be merely draught-proof shelters from extremes of weather and, if winter eggs' be de sired, they should have dry scratch ing quarters for bad weather. Always have your poultry houses open to the north.
THE KHEDIVE AND THE AMERICAN SALESMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
THE KHEDIVE AND THE AMERICAN SALESMAN. An amusing reminiscence of tUo present Khedive ol Egypt Is told by Mr. E. Alexander Powell, late consular representative of the United States at Alexandria, in hlB book, "The Last frontier." Mr. Powell says he re ceived a call from the "chairman o£ an American firm whose special line of business waB the manufacture of agricultural and well-drilling machin ery. Mr. Powell's visitor explained that as he was passing through Egypt he thought it might be possible to ob tain an audience with the Khedive: Agriculture and ltB attendant prob lems of irrigation and fertilisation constitute tne sole hobby and amuse ment of the present Khedive, Abbas Hilml. He is consequently a ready and liberal purchaser of all improved types of agricultural machinery, which he puts to practical use on his great estates. The request of my compatriot was duly transmitted to the grand master of ceremonies, and shortly thereafter a reply reached mo that named the day and hou...
A BERESFORD IN WAR-TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
A BERESFORD IN WAR-TIME. The Beresfords have alt been fa mous for the courage that'borders on recklessness. Lord William Beres ford served in the Zulu War in 1879, winning the V.C., and in his book, "Campaigns of a War Correspondent," Mr. Melton Prior relates some striking stories of him: In the retreat Lord William Beres ford, turning around, saw the four legs of a ?white horse kicking in the air, Realising at once that it belonged to one of our men, lie rode Btraight for it, and found that the horse had been shot and that the rider had fallen half Btunned. "Get up!" Lord William said to the man, but he seemed to dazed to an swer; whereupon Lord William said, "If you don't get up at once I will jump down and punch your head!" -at which the man did rise slowly. Lord William ? succeeded in helping him on to the horse behind him; once mounted, the man. clutched Beresford around the'waist, and so they gallop ed off. All the time this waB taking place the Zulus were firing from a donga ...
Avoiding Eye-Strain. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
Avoiding Eye-Strain. Bye-strain is said to be largely a delect o£ civilisation. To counteract it, children should be encouraged to use their eyes at long range. A teacher who has a surprisingly small amount ol' eye-strain among her pupils attri butes it to her practice of making the scholars drop their worlc at the end of each hour and look out of the win dow. There iB a contest as to. who can see the farthest. This rests and trains the eyes and teaches observa tion. A woman who does line sewing for her living found her eyes strained and weak. She was advised to drop her sewing every half-hour and look for v. minute into space. Relief was quick, and the eye-strain disappeared. Short-sighted people who hold their book or work close will ease eye strain and lengthen their vision if they frequently remove their glasses ?nd look at some object on the hori zon. The long-distance training will not, however, relieve eye-strain that conies from astigmatism, reckless dis regard of the eyes, ...
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
NEWLY-ENGAGED' GIRU8. Why Is it that a newly-engaged girl I is a thorn in the flesh to all her dis engaged sister women? ' . To begin with-obBerveB "a lady correspondent (who is not newly-en gaged)-she is odiously sorry for you because you don't happen to be a betrothed person also. You may have heaps of chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who ever seiz ed upon her first proposal will patron ise you until you feel almost ready to accept anyone. ?' ? When she isn't irritating you, the newly-engaged girl is rather funny o^r the ring more especially. This sacred object for a few weeks appar ently occupies the place of sun, moon, stars and all light. If it can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. And then, in other ways, she is so hopelessly selfish. But perhapB the personal vanity of . the engaged girl enrages her femin ine acquaintances more than any of her numerous failings.- To have to stand by and behold an insi...
LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
LUCERNE A3 A 80IL RESTORER.' Mr. S. P. Keys, writing in "Hoard's Dairyman," says:-When, we come to the question of the upkeep of the fer tility of our farms, we And that we face quite a serious problem. From what source are we to restore the humus, or vegetable matter, that is being rapidly exhausted by continu ous cropping? Manures and commercial fertilisers, while valuable, aro not always obtain able. Farmers waste the barnyard manure, and feel that they cannot af ford to buy commercial fertilisers. To fill the bill there must bo something within easy access of every farm. The answer to this is-green manures. The king of legumes used in green manuring is lucerne. Not only does It answer every requirement of a green manure, but is is also one of the most valuable of the standard crops. You may bo cropping a given piece of laud to lucerne, obtaining each year from five to seven cuttings, and at the same time you have at hand the means of restoring the fertility of the soil upon whic...

Too True. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
Too True. There is a happy mean in every thing., It is said that a shrewd old lady heard her married daughter say: "If my husband doesn't do such and such a thing, he'll find himself In hot water." "My child." said the old lady, "a man is like an egg. Kept in hot water a little while he may boil soft, but keep him there long and he hardens!" Each high achievement is a sign and token of the whole nature's pos sibility. What a piece of the man was for that shining moment it is the duty of the whole "man to toe always. The discovery of happiness may well be the fireat aim of wisdom; and 'we needs must be happy our selves before we can know that wis dom itself contains all.
A DOUBTFUL BARGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 January 1914
A DOUBTFUL BARGAIN. The marriage ceremony as seen in -America is often very quaint, accord ing to our staider ideas and traditions. In his "Wonder Book" the "Reverend L. B. Bates, long associated with the Bast Boston Bethel, U.S.A.," tells of an amusing marriage ceremony perform ed &lt;by his father: - About nine o'clock one night the old parsonage on Cape Cod was approach ed by a man and a woman in a "one horse shay." Hearing the wheels, Father Bates went to the door, to see coming up the walk a buxom lass of two hundred pounds or so, followed 'by a very little man. With a giggle she announced: "We've come to be married, par son, haven't we, Bill?" An energetic nudge succeeded in eliciting the desired affirmation from "Bill." The parson examir^d the li cense and proceeded to bus. ^ss. "Please join your right lian he said. "Dearly beloved, you are gath ered here for the purpose of holy ma trimony.
