No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 8 August 1914
THIRED is nothing spoken of but war--the most detestible thing on earth. Almost the whole of the nations have been plunged sud. denly into that most heathenish position, and there has not been such unrest in the hist6iy of the world. Whatever may be the rea son,i it is not in human power to :discern. Theorists may attribute the upheaval as due to aggrandisement or covetousness, and we are assured such is the case; but behind all, there is the know ledge in the Christain heart that the Almighty Ruler of the Universe is working out His great plan, Hu manity has.but its own place and its own duties. When nations are at peace and there is brotherliness throughout Empires, humanity is apt to forget its obligations -to the Divine. War should alter all this -the very Inature of things, with its' uncertainty, give men cause to think, and they. cannot think with out. their minds being perturbed of the future. In this great war there is sure to be this inherent feeling; and who can say what i...

One expects to find this in football. where the feeling...
WHY LEAFY POTATO PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 15 August 1914
WHY LEAFY POTATO PLANTS. The most nutritive part of the po tato,. the part that gives to the po tato its excellent flavour, - is the part that contains the greatest number of starch' cells. -If anyone will cut a po tato through the middle he will no tice that the potato substance is not homogeneous. Around the outside of the potato, just beneath the skin, is a layer, separated from the inner laser by a vascular semi-fibrous par tition that is visible on close exami nation. This outer layer is called the corticel, and contains most of the starch of the potato. The best pota toes have this corticel layer thick instead of thin--that is, have more starch than the others. The principal chemical element of starch is carbon. The potato plant gets all of its carbon from the air through the leaves, none of it from the soil. The leaves have the power to dissociate the carbon from the carbon dioxide in the air, and store much of this carbon in the tuber; The larger the leaf capacity and vi gor...
THE DAIRY A GENUINE GET-RICH-QUICK PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 15 August 1914
THE DAIRY A GENUINE GET-RICH-QUICK PROPOSITION. Superintendent Malcolm H. Gard ner, of the Holstein-Friesian Advan ced Registry of America, has a fac ulty of saying things in a striking and unique way,. Here is what he has to say regarding the disposition of pure-bred sires and the value of cow-testing associations : Not one pure blood bull out of ten that is born is needed for use in purebred herds. Sale for the other nine must be found for grading up, or they must be either vealed or raised as beef steers. Breeders of Hol steins are vitali3 interested in arous ing the interest of farmer-dairymen in the betterment of their herds, and there is no present better way to ac complish this than by the organisa tion of testing associations. Under this plan an association is formed containing enough herds to give steady employment to a competent man who remains one day at each place, the cows owned by the mem bers of the association being asses sed pro.rata to pay the wages of the man empl...
RECIPE FOR SKIM-MILK CHEESE [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 15 August 1914
RECIPE FOR SKIM-MILK CHEESE The skim-milk must be left until it is quite thick, then well strained, which can be done by hanging it up in a clean linen bag. When drained dry add salt to taste, and rub the curds well to make them appear mealy. Stand in a warm place near a stove for a few days till they get gluey. Then put into a saucepan, and fry with fresh butter till all is well melted. Run into a basin, and leave to get cool. It is then ready for use. This recipe is used by many farmers' wives in Western Australia, and is well recommended. An important experimental trial was made on the L.N.W. Railway be tween Foleshill and Nuneaton with a petrol-driven rail car. The test was a complete success, and foreshadows a revolution in railway locomotion. The car is 60 feet in length and is of ful railway carriage gauge. It runs smoothly on two sets of begie Weels,- and can be pulled up very gPmr tr, _ .198: t
USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 15 August 1914
USEFUL HINTS. Burns and Scalds.-For a slight burn or scald apply equal parts of olive oil and lime water, and wrap the part at once in a sheet of cot ton wool, 'fxing it lightly with a bandage. At first the pain seems in creased, but this soon subsides. The wool may be left on for three or four days. If lime water is not available olive oil may be used alone, and flour or starch dusted over it. Aching Limbs.-Hot salt water is a sovereign remedy for aching limbs caused. b standing too much on the feet, or too prolonged walking, also for tired arms, hands and limbs after continued exertion or. strain. The water should be as hot as can well be borne without discomfort, and have plenty of salt in it: but too strong salt will make the flesh: itch and burn. For a sprained ankle, bathe in hot salt water for half an hour, renewing the heat as it cools, wrap in flannel, and repeat the hot bath in three or four hours until re lieved. To Clean Brass and Retain the Polish.-Put some finely powde...
A PECULIAR POST-OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 15 August 1914
A PE&JLIAR Z'OST-OFFICE. Sailing vessels still go round Caps Horn, just as they did in the six teenth century, navigators finding it very difficult to make the winding passage thrdugli the Straits of Ma gellan. Sometimes, however, on accqunt pf stormy weather, ships have to hover off the Horn for the greater part of a month. Cape Horn is a big mass of rock, which rises abruptly fr6m' the sea and forms a small island. Upon one of the ledges of this rock there stands a covered barrel. Ship captains who grq passing around the Cape send a boat ashore at this point, if possible, to take from the barrel whatever mail matter is going in their direction, and drop' in it whatever is desired shall go in the opposite direction. This mail box is the ,world's most southern post-office, .and it does-not need g postmaster.
THE FARM. MOIST FACTS for DRY FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 15 August 1914
THE FARM. MOIST FACTS for DRY FARMERS. Mr. Geo. L. Sutton, Agricultural Commissioner for the Wheat Bait, Western Australia, has issued the following : Moisture can be stored in the soil. To store moisture the soil must be able to absorb the rain that falls. Loose soil will absorb 40 per cent. of its weight in water. Compact soil will absorb only 20 per cent. Cultivation or tillage loosens the soil. Cultivation or tillage some time previous to the sowing season is known as fallowing. FALLOWING STORES MOISTURE. The longer the period between the initial operation of fallowing and that of planting, the greater will be the quantity of moisture stored. In dry districts fallowing should commence early. The moisture stored by fallowing is wasted by weeds. Weeds can be destroyed by surface cultivation. The moisture stored is easily lost by evaporation. Much of this can be prevented by mulching, or covering the moist soil with straw, litter, or loose dry soil. The only practical mulch for lar...
FLYING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 15 August 1914
FLYING MACHINafI Can you bear us from her / To a sunnier sphere, Where taxation they know not a word of Where they furnish free meals' Of roast pork or stewed eels, And dyspepsia's never been. heard of Where nobody ever gets jilted or shot ? Oh, can you fly thither ? Alas, you can not ! Could you soar right away With our troubles to-day, You'd delight every strephon and Chloe; But the Flying Age comes, And brings us no plums, And the pudding of life is still doughy. So why' should I fly?. I will stay where I am, And go for a twopenny ride on a tram. --Coulson:. THE NEW GRAMOB o ONE. dMrs. Waddle was in quite a state of excitement when the new gramo phone arrived and thinking to give the parrot a surprise, she started the instrument off with " Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep," as sung by Mr. Waddle in his most approved draw ing-room fashion. At the very first note Polly opened her eyes in surprise,-and then flew to her perch, where she rocked her self to and fro in deep and speechle...

A Warning. SENTRIES MUST BE OBSERVED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 15 August 1914
A Warning. SENTRIES MUST BE OBSERVED. It seems very advisable that a warning should be made in regard to the public neglecting to halt when called upon by sentries doing duty at various positions. It would be unfortunate if an accident happened, but the sentries must carry out their important duties in stopping by some means or another all persons unable to give a satisfactory explanation of their presence, or refusing to halt when called upon, Intending visitors to the Camps should take notice of this, so as to avert the extreme penality of the law being enforced. Sentries are under strict orders: and are compelled to carry them out. This warning comes from an official source land] should be ad hered to.

-ROUBLE IN CONVERTING THE ISLAND OF LAGILOLO. a'Yes," said the beachcomber, "we 've had a lot of trouble in convertin' our island. One misfortune and an other happened to the missionaries by unforseen circumstances. Of course, I'm only speakin' of events that took place since I've been king of the Island. It was in 1865 on the ship Gineral Jackson that I was put in an open boat on the Pacific Ocean, through the schemin' of the Rev. James McBeaser. I was a circus clown and a Baptis'. The ship had stormy weather, got delayed, and begun to run out of water and food. The Rev. James McBeaser was a board, goin' to the islands as a mis sionary-a Sandemanian missionary. He organised a revival, and they all came into it but me, which I couldn't do, as a Baptis'. We kept on havin' bad weather, and he told the crew that we couldn't expect good weather as long as there was anybody on the ship that wouldn't jine the revival. That turned the sailors against me, and when he advised 'em to turn me ...

GRAINS OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 15 August 1914
CRAINS OF COLDO. -'he more iit one has the more ori. ginality one finds among men. It is little troubles that wear the heart out. It is easie" to throw a bomb shell a mile than a feather-even with artillery. Honesf good humour is the oil and tine of a merry meeting, and there is tfo jovial companionship equal to that where the jokes are rather small and the laughter abundant. While many women abuse the love that is lavished upon them, the ave rage woman lives upon a kind look, a tender tone, and an occasional caress, and repays these with the devotion oJ a lifetime, , Enthusiasm is the glow of the soul; enthusiasm is the lever by which men are raised above the average level and enterprise, and become capable of goodness and benevolence which, b J for it, would be quite impossible. Aim at perfection in everything; though in most things it is unattain. able; for those who aim at it, and per feveie, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despon dency make them give i...
