BANANAS AND TOMATOES DIET IN WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 March 1914
BANANAS AND TOMATOES DIET IN WINTER. Neal street, Long-acre (says "The DailyTelegraph" of January 9),is not an attractive thoroughfare. Narrow, dark and cheerless, frequently crowded and noisy. such is this passage connectiig K;ovent-gardere with the aristocratic neighborhood of Bloomsbury. Yet at times the place is interesting to those who like to study many places of Lon don life. In the little street may be seen, at times, hundreds of costermon gers, intent on securing supplies of fruit. It is an anxious, busy throng; each member of the fraternity waiting impatiently to be served. As a rule it is in the summer that this rialto is most thickly populated, that being the season when the demand for fruit is greatest. Seldom throughout thle winter months are scenes of extraordinary activity witnes~-ed in that obscure corner, ,ut the beginning of the present week Droved to be a notable exception. Early oi Moriday morning Neal street was crowded with men whose facial expres sions betoke...
IN VOLCANO'S CRATER PHOTOGRAPHER'S ADVENTURE [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 March 1914
IN VOLCANO'S CRATER T PHOTOGRAPHER'S ADVENTURE h With two thousand feet of photo- 0 graphs of the very bowels of Vesuvius in his travelling bag. -Mr Frederick Burlingham arrived in London yes- n terday (says "The Daily News and Leader" of January 2). I Four days before . Christmas he I climbed down into the heart of the , burning mountain, and at a depth of , 1200ft. (or nearly a quarter of a mile) a stayed for twenty minutes to take a g series of moving pictures. At a'ny moment lie and his two Italian comn panions might have been burnt to f, cinders or blown to atoms. n CONTRAST IN TWO DESCENTS c Only once before has the crater been explored to such a depth. Last year a Prof. Malladra. of the Vesuvius Ob- r servatory, made the pioneer descent, but he made it under carefully-chosen t conditions, and with ideal equipment, i and nearly all his photographic plates ^ were ruined by chemical action. Mr Burlingham had Hobson's choice In the matter of conditions, could not procure even one...
WAFER OFFENDS WITNESS DAMAGES AWARDED [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 March 1914
WAFER OFFENDS WITNESS DAMAGES AWARDED Mr John Charles Gurr, a pensioned police sergealit of Sunbury, was awarded £25 damages in the Law Courts yesterday (says "The Daily Ex press," December 6) in his libel action against Mr John Henry Scott and Mr Daniel Collins, also of Sunbury. The statements complained of were con tained in circulars charging Mr Gurr with having held up to ridicule the Eucharist wafer. The jury also returned a verdict for Mr Gurr on Mr Scott's counter-claim for damages, but as the judge had left the court judgment was not entered Mr Albert John Bovay, a retired Civil servant, of Teddington, who was the first witness yesterday, said he was a member of the Church of England, and attended St. Alban's Church, Ted dington. "In August, 19.09," he added, "Mr Gurr attended a meeting at Tedding ton and alluded to the fact that Father Stanton was going to preach at St. Alban's, producing a large and a small wafer. The large wafer fell to the ground, and Mr Gurr said, 'Mind...
Goulburn Levees Abandoned. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 March 1914
SGoulburn Levees Abandoned. The State has now finally abandoned its scheme for the erection of levee banks along the course of the Goul burn River alleged to be for the pro tection of the property of landholders in'the locality from damage by perio dic floods. About £120,000 has been spent on the project, and opinion is divided as to whether the whole, or only a part of it, has been so much money thrown away. Hloping that a more satisfactory scheme could be car. ried out, which would prevent all the past expenditure from being wasted, the Ministry recently asked the State SWater Commission to grapple with the problem. The commission pre pared a scheme, which was to cost a further sum of £75,000, making a total of over £170,000 from first to last. It was originally thought that this had the support of the land holders, who were believed to be will ing to be rated to the extent of 8d per acre annually, for 31 years, apart from ld per acre for maintenance- The landholders, or a great m...
CRICKET. SECONDRATE ASSOCIATION. McCARTHY—HELLER TROPHY. East Kerang v Kerang. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 March 1914
CRICK E T. SECOIDRATE ASSOCIATION. IMcC?IIT--HELLER TuOPHy. East Kerang v Keraug. On Wednesday last these teams met on the East Kerang ground which is in very bad order, the ball shooting and bumping considerably throughout the match, which made it very diflicult for the batsman. Once again the Kerang captain lost the toss and the East team decided to take the field. Kerang sent Dean and S. Palmer to the wickets against the bowl ing of Farrant and J. Thorne. The score went to 18 before Palmer was stumped by Phillips off Thorne. The next two wickets added 5 runs, Slatter coming in at the fall of the third wicket made things lively for a few minutes, hitting up 23 runs, when Boyd found the hole in his bot. Only one run was added for the 5th, 6th, and 7th wicket, but the next three batsmen hit up 26, and the innings closed for 89 runs. Dean 28, Slatter 23, Edwards 10, Turner 11 not out had the best figures. Thorne with 5 for 38 proved to be the best bowler. East, Kerang sent Mundy and ...

How I Saved My Hair. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 March 1914
How I Saved My Hair. "My hair was thin, short, dry and brittle. Every time I combed or brushed it large quantities came out, and I had begun to fear that soon I should be entirely bald. A specialist whom I consulted said mine was a particularly bad case of dandruff-so bad that he knew of only one thing he could hope would .overcome the trouble and restore my scant tresses to their former luxuriance and beauty. He told me to get my chemist to pre pare a lotioncomposed of three ounces of bay rum, one ounce lavona de composes and quarter dram menthol crystals, and to rub this into the scalp twice a day with the finger tips, I was sceptical, but did as I was told. To my delighted astonishment I soon noticed that my hair had stopped fall ing out, and in a few weeks my head was covered with a new growth of downy hair. I continued the use of the lotion until I possessed a head of hair, all my own, that is the wonder of all my friends. My specialist says he has known of many cases similar t...
BUSY BIEBRICH [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 March 1914
BUSY BIEBRICH Biebrich, where the late Dowager Queen of Sweden was born in 1836, and where she was married in 1857, is (says *The Westminster Gazette"), a busy little town on the bank of the Rhine, ,lose to Wiesbaden, and not far from 'layence. Its population of oltout 20,000 finds employment in the fac ories and foundries whoso chimneys ure such a conspicuous feature of the 'andscape. The late Queen was born in the palace of the Duke.s .

THE MAKER OF SABOTS AN IDYLL OF THE FOREST. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 March 1914
THE MAKER OF SABOTS ANi IDYLL OF THE FOREST. (By M. P. Willcocks, in "Daily News and Leader.") Seen from afar, this Breton beech wood is just a blue mist on the horizon. But within it the stillness is so deep that no twig can fall or undergrowth rustle without being noted. With these sounds comes the sense of an abiding presence, as of one who moves about his own house. In summer the ponds re flect the green world that surrounds them, and across the long white roads, where the branches almost meet over head, blows the woodland smell, damp and fresh with the breath of air and moss. "Lord of the Seven Forests" was all ancient title of the noblesse when almost all the Breton land was forest, the temple of strange worships, each spring therein a haunt of goat footed dwarfs. Now, through the tunnel of the trees, there shines this winter day the open sky and beyond it, more mist of wood land. A silver biroh waves its few pale leaves in air. There is the scent of cleft wood from the heaps ...
Dyspeptics Need Not Diet. A SIMPLE MEANS OF PREVENTING FOOD FERMENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 13 March 1914
Dyspeptics Need. Not Diet. A SIMPLE MEANS OF PREVEN TING FOOD FERMENTATION. Food fermentation ii the-cause of all the discomfort and pain dyspep tics suffer. It does not necessarily follow, however, that in order to ob tain relief they must deny themselves the enjoyment they derive from eat ing so called indigestible luxuries. The most satisfactory method of over coming the difficulty would be to pre vent tha fermentation from occurring at all, and this can be done by a very simple means. It must first be ex plained that most of. the foods we eat contain a certain quantity of acid forming elements, and indigestible foods of course, contain a larger pro portion. When these foods are eaten the acid collects, irritates the walls of the stomach, and causes the food to ferment whi'e it is digesting. This fermenting food also gives cff gas which distends the stomach, causing that full, uncomfortable feeling so often noticed after eating. The root of the trouble is the acid fermenitation. ...
