STAMINA IN BREEDING STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 28 February 1914

STAMINA IN BREEDING STOCK. For any purpose of production, whether it be for breeding or for the laying of table-eggs, the first essen tial is stamina in the Btock. It is supposed by some that the system of strain-making for egg production must of necessity result in degeneracy, but as a matter of fact it is not so. Stamina or loss of stamina depends upon how the breeding is managed, and although the methods employed have in some instances prevented the peipetuation of a strain of layers that had approached a high level of pro duction, it is a matter of experience— on the other hand—that the best layers are the birds that are also character ised by a healthy activity and a sound constitution. It is, of course, even more obvious that the mainten ance of vitality is a primary necessity in chicken breeding, so that for either purpose stamina is a chief requisite —but, naturally, all weakly and degen erate stock will have been cleared out long before the time of the final se lection. It ...

MOLES. Tho name of molo is applied to s small spot or tumour of tiio skin, it is usually supplied wtih color, perhaps red, in excess; it generally risos above i the surface, sometimes very sli^htlv at others in a littlo mound or lump, and very often it is rendered still more unsightly by an oxcossive development of hair, which may ho cither very stiff or soft almost like a small furry prick.

THE CARE OF THE FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 28 February 1914

THE CARE OF THE FEET. We have abundant information her alded broadcast on the hygiene of al most every organ and cavity of tlie body except our pedal extremities. As a matter of fact, the feet cause a great deal of suffering:, especially during- the hot months of summer. In this respect women are greater suf ferers than men. It is a notorious fact that women's shoes are, not pro perly built. The last is too narrow, the heels are too high, and tliey are made to look well rather than to pro duce comfort to the wearer. Many men also endeavour to wear shoes that are ill-fitting and uncomfortable. The remedy for summer foot u ear ailments is in shoes that fit tin- feet properly, neither too large nor too small. Painful feet are relieved by letting them go unshod at convenient hours during the day. Corns anil bunions improve as the sufferer goes barefoot. If the feet sting and bum. they should be bathed in cold water which contains a tcaspoonfu! of pmv-i dired alum to each quart. After th...

a Cheap reputation. Jerhones had gone through a cor respondence course in "How to Make a Fortune in Six Months," and was doing his best to put the theoretical knowledge thus acquired into prac tice. . He had started a small sKop, in the cheap clock and jewellery line, in his native town, and, tTiough he was uot exactly crowded out by customers, he hoped for the best. One day old Mr. Bumpus puffed into the shop and asked the price of alarm-clocks. "One shilling, sir, to you," answer ed Jerhones. "A shilling? Then, wtiy did you charge my son two-and-eleven for one last week ?V "Aha, that's, a trick of the trade 1" said Jerhones, with a knowing look. "Hut you and I arc old friends, so I don't mind telling you. You see, the great thing in this kind of business is to get a reputation for cheapness, and that is what I am aiming at.

OLD WATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 28 February 1914

OLD WATCHES. Until the ond of the tenth cen tury there wore no way of measuring time except by the aid of a sundial or an hourglass. To whom the invention i of watches and clocks can bo put down it is impossible to say with entire con fidence, but wo first hear of a "grad uated mechanism" akin to a watch or clock being invented by the monk Ger bert who was raised to the tiara in 399 with the title of. Sylvester II. But. these clocks wdre extremely heavy and cumbersome, and it is not until the fourteenth century that there is any mention of portable clock®, while noth ing really worthy of the name of watch can bo said to have been invented prior to tho middle of tho fifteenth century, when the discovery of tho spiral spring in the place of the weight and line gave the first necessary impetus to wards improvement. Tho firsfc watches of which there is any definite record- were those known as "Nuremburg Eggs," a name given to. them, both owing to the city where they were made and to the...

HOW YOU CAN AVOID RHEUMA TISM. You may stand i.ll day j„ colcl streams or upon rocks washed by the ocean tides, and not {ret rheumatism You may eat red flesh and spiced fo„d, yet be free from trout or rheumatir! Cffcctions. Tramping: in the rain or sleeping on damp ground will not give you inflamed joints or cripple your muscles. All these statements arc true of the man or woman who is in perfect health. What I mean by perfect health is that state of body and organs . where all food taken is properly dis tributed and the proper amounts of by-products are daily eliminated. J his means that the skin must be in good working order so that free per spiration, conscious and unconscious, will pass the body poisons off through the pores; that the liver must be in such a healthy state that every cell does its work in separating the good from tile bad in the blood; that the kidneys must be in the same condi tion, and that the lungs are daily emptied and filled up with fresh air.
