KJERGAARD HALL. OPENING FESTIVITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914
KJERGAARD HALL OPKNINOS VEST I ViTIES. Tlio nomenclature of many Gipps land places is puzzling to residents who liiivc acttled within the last eight to tun years. To ;m outsider " Kjer gaard " is another nut to crack. Old residents, however, have pleasant re collections of iiu elderly bachelor who was one of the first to take up land at Klackwarry, and to perpetuate the memory of the now deceased gentle man it was decided to so name the hall. Mr lvjergaard held S20 acres of forest land, which he partly cleared, and desiring to vol urn to Denmark, lie sold out at a profit. The land is now held Iiy the Messrs Cummin;?, on which grow luxuriantly a number of trees in digenous to the Old Country, including nuts. The new hall is pleasantly situated 011 the summit of the dividing ranges • midway between Yarrain and Kosedale, on land formerly held by the old pioneer. It is situated on a plateau, from which a lovely bird's-eye view can be had of the ocean and all the llat country to the sout...
THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914
THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY One of the cheapest, simplest, yet most effective of remedies is that known as Epsom salts, or magnesium sulphate. In the poultry-yard it is in valuable, aijd no poultry-keeper can afford to be without it, for its use as a first aid in many instances will ward off serious troubles, and save the lives of many Yowls. Liver disease, or diarrhoea, when the comb is purple in color and a hen loses her appetite, is often remedied by a dose of Epsom salts, given about two hours before or after meals, the correct dose being half a teaspoonful iper bird, dissolved in warm waier, and poured down the throat. When Epsom salts are being given, it is advisable to reduce the food supply, in order that the medi cine may have the full effect upon the bird's organs. Closely allied to the above is Glauber's salts, or sodium sulphate. This saline treatment is wonderful in improving the digestion and appetite of ailing fowls, and by its action on the intestin...
FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914
FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. One of the findings of science on the subject of poultry-keeping is that a hen raquires one-fiftieth of her weight in food every day to maintain her 'bodily vigor. So, if a hen weighs Bib. 4oz. tliu daily allowance of food ought to be 2oz. But that allows noth ing for the manufacture of the egg. A hen in full lay is asumed to lay lOoz. in a wek. As 60 per cent, of an egg is water, that means that at least 4oz. more food must he allowed. A safe rule is to allow laying hens about 3oz. of food per day. In con fined runs, much more care has to foe taken to give a well-balanced ration than when the fowls run free. In the latter case the birds seldom become too fat, and they keep themselves in health^iby eating a variety of green food, which acts as a corrective to all sorts of complaints to which other fowls are subject

FLAW IN RULES CONTESTS WHICH NEED TIGHTER HAND [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914
FLAW IN RULES CONTESTS WHICH NEED TIGHTER HAND On several occasions "The Daily Ex press" has called attention to the in congruities connected with the cham pionship titles that go with the Lons dale boxing belis. There is nothing wrong with the belts themselves, it says, nor with the methods imposed for i acquiring them. Although belts do not mako champions, the introduction of these trophies into boxing has brought about a most desirable improvement in the sport. To eliminate the belt interest from boxing now would bo wiping out one of the greatest inducements for aspirants to fame and fortune to keep on the path ; to success. To drop belt interest would be to curtail, if not almost entirely era dicate, public interest in the more im portant boxing matches. Conditions have arisen, however, for which the framers of bolt rules made no allowance. Tho rules, excellent in their way, fail to provide for one con tingency, and the fact has lately been brought home with increasing em phasis...

NEW SURGERY ASTONISHING RESULTS CLAIMED [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914
NEW SURGERY ASTONISHING RESULTS CLAIMED The excitement created among doctors by the radium treatment of cancer (says the "Central News") will probab ly be overshadowed at an early date by the announcement to tho medical profession of an astonishing operation now being performed at Guy's Hospital, which in the near future is bound to re volutionise the whole practice of opera tive surgery. The operation so far has been ap plied to cases of certain forms of tu berculosis, and so successful lias it proved that it has now been accepted at Guy's as the correct treatment for this disease. The principle of the treatment, the "Central News" was informed by an eminent surgeon, is tho removal of tho cause of the disease. For long it has been recognised that the excessive mul tiplication of noxious bacteria In tho larger intestine and the inability of the body to eliminate them was the pre disposing cause of many diseases. The Metchnikoff sour milk treatment, which purported to purify this org...

Three years ago, forty-seven years after her last meeting with him, she was overjoyed to receive a letter from Mr. Wolf, -who informed her that he had now retired from business with a fortune. A correspondence ensued in which the spinster alleges the vet eran wooed her with all the ardor which characterised him before the war. and finally he proposed mar riage. She made all the preparations for the ceremony at great expense. When everything was ready Mr. Wolf wrote saying that the marriage could never take place. Miss Malmney bases hnr claim on...
ODD THINGS ON TRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914
ODD THINGS ON TRAINS. On a mountain railway near Salz burg a railway carriage is actually fit ted with a balloon. At the mountain top a tank below the car is filled -with water, sufficient to counteract the up ward pull of the gas bag, which the vehicle thus drags down with it upon the return journey. Trains are frequently being put to odd uses. The window ot a railway saloon in Denmark forms a royal auto graph album. Royal visitors scratch their names on one of the panes, which now show, among other Royal autographs, those of King Edward and Queen Alexandra. The vestibule to the train belonging to the German Emperor holds several fine statues, the car ibuilt for Presi dent Diaz of Mexico contains a com plete verandah, and that belonging to the Viceroy of India is roofed with water-tanks, which contribute towards coolness, and furnish water for do mestic purposes on the train. Russia's important trains carry a car, above which rises a little belfry containing a chime of bells.
MAGNET DRAWS NAIL FROM GIRL'S LUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914
MAGNET DRAWS NAIL FROM GIRL'S LUNG. Odessa May, a four-year-old girl ot Aldridge, Texas, is fast recovering from a remarkable surgical operation performed on her by Dr. R. C. Lynch, of New Orleans. La. A wire nail was removed from the child's right lung after it had been embedded there for six weeks. The child was rushed by her parents to Beaumont, eighty-five miles south of Aldridge. After two unsuccessful operations, surgeons de clared nothing could save the child. Frantic in his efforts to save her, Odessa's father rushed her to a hospi tal at New Orleans, where two opera tions were performed and the nail re moved within a week. Dr. Lynch in serted a rubber tube into the child's throat. The end was worked around while the physician watched through the X-ray, and when the tubing was fixed directly over the head of the wire nail a powerful magnet was placed over the other end of the tubing and the nail was drawn out.
He Was Quite Slow. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 March 1914
He Was Quite Slow. A shy young man had been calling on the sweetest girl in the world for many moons, but, being bashful, his suit progressed slowly. Finally she decided it was up to her to start some thing, so the next time he called .she pointed to the rose in his buttonhole and said, 'Til give you a kiss for that rose." A crimson flush overspread his countenance, but the exchange was made after some hesitation on his ■part. Then he grabbed Ills hat and started to leave the room. "Why, where are you going?'! .she asked, in surprise. • "To the—er—florist for more roses," he called from the front door.

A young woman, accus tomed to wander ill the mountain gorges, disappeared, and after a time some articles of clothing belonging to Her, surrounded with footprints of l'oxes, were discovered at a point nearly a mile above sea-level. As there were no other tracks, it was concluded that,, while stupefied with cold or fatigue, the woman must have been attacked and eaten by these an imals.
