A COOL SHADE HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 February 1914
A COOL SiADE ,OUSE. There are few _pots in the garden that are more interesting or give great er pleasure to lovers of plante than a well constructed and nicely furnished shade or bush house. It is an inter esting place at all seasons, but partic ularly so during the hot surmmor months when growth is luxuria-nt, and tho house affords a pleasant shado from the heat of the sun. In our climate, numbers of plants that are difficult to grow in the greenhouse, can be grown to perfection in a bush or shade house. for, in addition to the plants grown in pots or planted in the soil for per manently furnishing the house, it also provides a place where pot plants can be grown and established that are re quired for indoor decoration; as well as a place for winltering varieties that have been used outside during the sum mer months. A shade house is easily construoted, and at little cost, unless, of course, ex. pensive material is used. All that is required is a reasonable amount of shade and she...

SECRET OF LONG LIFE. FAMiOUS DOCTOR'S EXPER[. MENTS. " Life" for March contains a special article of exceptional interest describ ing the wonderful operations per. formed by Sir Arbuthbot W. Lane-a famous London surgeon-in short.cir. cuiting the intestines as a cure for ex treme constipation and diseases due to it. A woman came to Guy's Hospital in a deplorable state of health, apparently dying. She was thin, could take no food, and was covered with open sores. She was, moreover, not a cheerful iu valid, but was terribly depressed. Several doctors had failed to diaguose her case, but Dr. Lane decided that the trouble lay in her intestinev. lie operated, and found that part of her colon (sometimes known as the ox-bow), was in a bad way, so he cut it clean away and jpined up the ends, Within 2% hours the patient ceased to be melanchoiche. In a short whi'e the natural processes began again, and she improved rapidly. Meanwhiie, her sores which had not been treated at all, healed up, her...

THE OLD SCHOOL. (TO THE EDITOR "M. & D. ADVERTISER.") [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 February 1914
THiE OLD SCHOOL. (To THEa~ EnDrron " Mi. & D. ADVERTISER.") SIr,-My thanks to "404" for his recent reminiscences of the early days of the old school. His remarks deal mainly with the head teachers who, whilst certainly in command, are not always so closely associated with the scholars as are the members of the teaching staff. My association with 404 was mainly during Mr W. Cox's regime; and, on the staff with him, were Mr Perrin and Mr Robert Burns. The two latter gentlemen had charge of the side issues, which tend so much to make school duties a pleasure instead of a task. I fancy that, to Mr Perrin, the credit belongs for the success of the drum and fife band at Geelong on so many occasions. It would be very interesting if the records of the band, and the members thereof, could be col lected and kept associated with the school history. I have very pleasant recollections of a couple of visits to Geelong in the latter years of the band's existence. The street parades, at the...

A WIFE'S CLAIM. THE BENCH INTERVENES. Mr and Mre James Wright, of East Maryborough, once more re appeared before Mr D. Berriman, P.Mi., at the Maryborough police court yesterday. This time Mrs Wright had a maintenance claim to make against her husband, who, she alleged, had left her without suffi cient means of support. Mr R. M. iManchester, of Melbourne, appeared for plaintiff, and Mr E. F. G. Jolley, Mi.A., LLM., of Maryborough, for the defence. Mr Manchester, in the course of his plaint, said that Wright was re ceiving £3 3s per week as an engine driver on the railways and should pay 25s par week to the support of his wile. This was only reasonable after having stopped her credit, left her, and threatened to take the furniture. Louisa Wright, in evidence, said that since 1912 her husband had persistently knocked her about, beat ing and bruising her. In conse quence of witness buying a blouse in place of one defendant had torn, he had stopped her credit. fSubse quently, defendant ...

"But look here, Pat said the latter, "you munst see that the world can't be anything else but round. Now. tell me, where does the sun rise," "Ia the east, of course," said Pat. "And where does it set?" "Why, in the west." "Well, then. how did it manage to Pat thought hard for a minute. T'hen an intelligent look dawned in his eye.

CHEAMICAL VALUE OF MAN. Dr Emil Hahn, writing in the Mtde zinisohe Blaetter, mentions LI 11;6 as the value cof a man weighing 1501bs The man's fat, according to the writer is worth 10,5. Of iron. there is barely enough to make a nail 1 inch long.

The man further holds within his organism albumen in suftficient to make 100 eggs while of sugar he has a teaspoonful, and of salt a mere pinch.
CANADIAN FISHERIES. EXTRAORDINARY ACCIDENT [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 February 1914
CANADIAN FISH R%!E, EXTRAORDINARY ACCIDENT An extraordinary condition, .gard ing the British Columbia Salmon fish eries, which may seriously affect ithe futuLr of the canning trade, has rcent lv been reported to the Fisheries De pnartment! at. Ottawa. In bu.idng their British Columbia line ·iong the precipitous banks of the Fraser Liver, the Canadian Northern railway, is re ported to have blasted enormuus quantities of rock into the famouas salmon river. These masses of rock have so deflected the current that when a big "run"': occurs, they are unable to pass the obstacle, and eie consequently prevented from reaoh ing their spawning grounds. This year there was a big "run" and it is stated that. nu.en the salmon reached these dams, they were uinal le to so on. and millions turned back and died without spawnifug. The results will probably be serious, as a big run occurs every four years, when there is an increase of three and four million dollars in the salmon canning trade. Thie suo...
