GIPPSLAND TRAIN SERVICE. IMPROVEMENT REQUIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 5 May 1914

-GIPPlSLAND TRAIN SERVICE. IMPROVEMENT REQUIRED. There are loud and bitter com plaints of the inconvenience and loss of time caused by, the great irregularity of the running 'bt the Gippsland trains. The passenger trains are npw rarely on time. The Balrnsdale "Advertiser'" 'states that the train leaving Bairnsdale in the afternoon is frequently held up .at Lindenow because the train coming from Melbourne Is late. It is suggested that the train sbould leave Bairnsdale 40 minutes' ear lier, and that the two trains s.hcould pass at. Stratford, ihstead of Lin denow. If this change was made the passengers would reach tti city at 9.50, instead or 10.30. The paper says: "To be landed at Melbourne forty minutes earlier than at pre sent would be a-convenience that everyone 'would appreciate. This alteration would involve no addl tionai expense to the Government But if it should be thought that the 'present hour. of departure, Should be held to, t n to ovrer come the difficulty it would be'ne...

MARGARINE. A MENACE TO BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 5 May 1914

MARGARINE. --o A MENACE TO BUTTER., (By L. LOWSBY). The colored margarine question has received a good deal of atten tion by all interested in the butter business during the past few years. There have been immense im provements in the method ot manufactuie during late years. It was formerly made from oleo, stearine, refined beet tallow. To du" there are three distinct kinds -oleo margarine, in"d fioth ani mal fats; vegetable . margarine, made from nuts, mostly cocoanuts and a margarine from a mixiture of these twio varieties. .Doctors differ as to. the. ood value ot margarine. The medical superintendent told the Bermond sey guardians a few. months ago that he could not make a similar report as to margarine as he did when ttihe alteration in th1e dic tary.'ot butter. to margarine was made in 1908, as in his opinion the constituents' of margarine had changed since that time,, and its composition. was not of suh -nu tritive value as formerly.

ELECTRIC FIRELESS STOVES [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 5 May 1914

ELECTRICFIRELESS STOVES "Vesta" in the " 'Argus" writes --"A new electric stove is one type of the fireless electric cooker so popular in America. It is said -that when the current is turned on 'for only a few minutes this oven heats sufficjently to be able to cook as mall joint with the retained heat. The oven can be used for roasting stewing and' boiling, but there is also an elec .tric griddle plate, on which frying and toasting can be done. Some -stove of this kind will undoub tedly be the stove of the future. The gas-stove rescured us from the misery of an ever burning kit chen range. Electricity Is not yet cheap enough to supersede gas, but when it is we shall be able to have ideal kitchen conditions. The great economy of the fire less cookeir, and the saving ot la bor that is effected, will commend it to all housewives; so that I 'con fidently expect the combination of fireless and electric cookers to solve many of our present diffi culties. It will give us a clean, odourless...

FOOTBALL. MORWELL COMPETITION EXTRAORDINARY POSITION ARISES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 5 May 1914

FOOTBALL. MORWELL COMPETITION. EXTRAORDJNARY POSITION ARISES. SFollowing on the discussion that took place at the meeting of de legates to the Morwell Districtý Cdmpetition on Tuesday morning, we are not in the least surprised at having to record the withdra wal of the Yinnar and Hazelwood clubs. Their argument is that they do not think it advisableto continue the competition with hve teams, Traralgon having dropped out. This is a very lame excuse. The very fact of the matter is -and they made no secret of it that they wish to exclude the Mirboo North club, and so have adopted unscrupulous tactics in order to attain their end. We would be extremely sorry to see the Motwell club' support theni in the matter. Better by tar to have hio football at all than to endorse this course of ac tion. In 'consequence, no senior matches will be played to-morrow. At a meeting of the Morwell "Association on Tuesday, a letter was received from the Traralgon club, iotifying that at a general meeting p...
