Buying mixed lota of fowlB — they may be past the laying 6tage. Leaving eggs in the nest—gather twice daily. Keeping cockerels with laying pul lets—infertile eggs keep better. Kitchen scraps from hospitals. Late hatching—means lack of sta mina. Too much grain—causes liver di sease. Giving water, to birds suffering from diarrhoea—skim milk is better. Overcrowding the pens. Feeding grain to sick fowls. Setting hens with cut wings—eggs , get chilled. The leggy sitter (such as the LangsUan.) too clumsy, and often breaks eggs. The hen covered with vermin chicks will also have them. Using a broody hen twice in suc cession—her temperature is too low. Breeding from deformed stock like begets like. .

TOBACCO A DRUG. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 14 January 1915

TOBACCO A DRUG. An interesting case of splitting hairs lias arisen in Ireland in the ad ministration of the National Insur ance Act as to whether tobacco is a drug, a necessity, or a luxury, all three views being taken by different authorities. It uppears that the su perintending medical officer of the Dublin district recommended that a consumptive patient coming under the provisions of the Act be given tobac co for smoking to comfort him in his last days, offering to pay for the weed himself, but the Insurance Com mittee decided that the tobacco was necessary to the patient's treatment and sent in the bill to the Insurance Commissioners. Two weeks later the local .authorities received a lengthy communication demanding an explan ation of their action in charging the Government with a shilling's worth of tobacco. Their reply was that to bacco was recognised as a drug in the British Codex under the title Ni cotiana Tabacum, and that it had been prescribed by a registered prac titioner...

KILLING HERSELF FOR LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 14 January 1915

KILLING HERSELF FOR LOVE. "If you do not marry me, I shall kill myself." In play and story these melodramatic words are often met with, and sometimes may he spoken in real life, hut never, probably, in sucli deadly earnest as they are now and again in the Melanesian Islands, where it is the custom among some of the natives for tlio women to propose marriage. If the man refuses, the wo man must kill herself. Captain Sinker, R.N.R., who is back in England after spending some years among the Melanesia!). Islanders, says that the custom often leads to tragedy, although iu one case which came under his notice there was a happy, if somewhat irregular, ending. It appears that a young' native who had been converted to Christianity visited an island where the women al ways propose marriage, and a girl fell in love with him and proposed. But as he was already engaged he had to refuse. The girl quietly re signed herself to death, which so dis tressed the young Christian native that he consulte...

CHAPTER XVIII. Hand in Hand Once More. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 14 January 1915

CHAPTER XVIII. Hand in Hand Once More. It was not until many months after wards that Dick and Sydney met again. ,, It was October, and mid-autumn had come. It had been a wet summer and promised to he a wetter autumn. Everything was dripping, and there seemed to be a. veil as o£ tears over the world as Sydney saw It in London. She had fallen into the habit of strolling around the moro unfrequent ed parts of the park almost every afternoon before or after tea. Nearly all ' her intimate friends were away from London, and she was feeling more solitary and alone than usual. On more than one occasion she had met Robert as slie was mak ing her way to the almost deserted park, and he had suggested that she might find 'something a little more ' cheerful and a little less damp than the sodden walks and sadly dripping ! trees of the park. "It suits liie," she answered, with a ghost of a smile. "I don't mind the dampness". I love the trees and How- > ers, though it's true the flowers are j n...

CHAPTER XVII. A Little Child. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 14 January 1915

CHAPTER XVII. A Little Child. Sydney had made Robert send her news every day. Sin would not, could not, call to inquire herself. But Robert went each morning, and sent her a note or a wire with the latest bulletin. When the * news became gradually more serious, she could not refrain any longer. She must let Dick know how deeply she was feeling for him, and she wrote him a short note of sympathy. He answered it with a few grateful words, and said He knew she would understand what he was going through, but they still hoped, though now it was almost against hope. After that Sydney did not write again. But every day she bought a few fragrant roses and sent them by Robert, with strict injunctions that he was not to 6ay who sent them. But Dick seemed to know, and he always saw to it tliat they were in Mollie'B room, where her eyes could rest on them, until even the one rase ot sweet-scented roses was banished ■from the room. There must be noth ing in it to take nway one iota of the freshn...

Ten minutes later little Mollie woke up. "Daddy," she said, feebly, and looked around for him. He was not there, but she caught sight of her mother close beside her. "Mummy," she said. "Mummy " There was no answer. And Mollie 1 began to cry, feebly. "Mummy," she said, in her broken, weak voice;' "Mollie wants some water." Again there was no answer, ,and the' child, in her half-delirious weak ness, whimpered pitifully. She man aged to wriggle to the edge of the bed, put out one tiny, fragile hand, and tugged at her mother's dress. "Mummy," she whispered again, ber small strength almost exhausted, "Mollie's firsty. Mollie wants water." But the mother was deaf to the voice of the child. Mollie lay still and spent for a few minutes, and then she caught sight of the water-jug on a table a few feet away. ...
