BEEF GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914
BEEF GROWING. "The farmer who increases the pro ductive value of his land, either by restoring soil fertility, or by growing better grains, makes a personal suc cess, and, to an extent, becomes a public benefactor," says the "Farm Bulletin." So said someone whose name we cannot for the moment re member. If this be true of the grain farmer, what can be said of the pro gressive Stock raiser? There never was a time wlleh there was BO great a lleed of growing two pounds of beef where only one grew before, as there is at present. Such a marked increase may be possible only in some instan ces, hut very great improvement is needed in the cattle of the majority of our grazing farms and stations. Not every cattle man is in a position to raise pure breds, but none, can afford to raise scrubs. And none can afford not to feed up to the animal's full-ca pacity. ?
BALDNESS CURED BY FREEZING [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914
BAt-DNESS CURED BY FREEZING Can baldness be cured by cold atmospheric treatment f This is a question that has been occupying the attention of scientists. Sir Ernest Shackleton, the explorer, laid stress upon the fact that many o! the men in his expedition before their sojourn in the Antarctic regions wera remarkable for the thinness of their locks. They had barely been a few weeks in the frozen South, however, than their hair began to grow, and when they returned from their expedl* tion all had hair remarkable for ita thickness and luxuriance. It has been remarked also that nearly all the men who work the greater part of the day in cold storage rooms have good heads of hair. The laws of Nature would seem M emphasize the fact that cold is favour able to the growth of hair. Take the case of the animals. In no countries of the world is their fur so thick and luxuriant as in the frozen Arctic re gions. By a special dispensation of Providence the animal dwellers there are given an extra ...

PREPARATION OF SHEEP SKINS FOR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914
PREPARATION OF SHEEP SKIN8 FOR MARKET. In the preparation of sheep skins for market we would like to emphasise the care that is necessary in the tak ing off of the skin and its drying. The utmost care should be taken to avoid cutting or damaging the pelt when Bkinning. All fat or meat must ? be cut off, the leg and face pieces remov ed, and care exercised to prevent any blood or dirt getting on "either the wool or flesh side. As regards drying, it is necessary first to spread out the skins in the shade and finish drying them either on wires or in sheds where the weath er cannot affect them. Particular care must be taken to dry the points of the .skin. The skin should, when properly dried, be folded in two, head to tail, wool outside, and pressed into bund les, weighing about 1 to 1% cwt. In tying the bundles, it is just as well to see that the rope (or wire, if rope is not obtainable) Is tied around each end, so that it is impossible for thieves to pull out skins during transit to m...

EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914
EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. Every man must study his own soil and crop conditions. Experiment sta tions may practise from now until tlie end of time, and still not .be able to answer the question for the individual farmer. Principles can be established, the needs of different crops can be learned, the composition of fertilisers can be determined, chemical and phy sical analyses may show wherein . soils differ; but when it comes to the : question o£ the profitable use of fertil 1 isers, each farm, each paddock must answer for itself. That is, careful, intelligent and accurate experiments ; must bo carried on by every farmer, ' gardener, and orchardist who wishes to settle this point. In all fertiliser experimental work it is important that the land UBed be as uniform in soil condition and previous manuring and cropping as can be procurfid, . The size of plots may vary according to the nature of the crop from two square rods to one-tenth to one-third of an acre, or larger if desired...

Barbaric School System* Dr Albert Wilson, the Pinim-nt criminologist, lectured at the In ternational Club tor Psychical Research last night (save "The, Daily News," March 11}, and i tbpre was some curiosity as to two exhibits on the table until I rhe lecturer explained that one ! was a half of a human brain pre ( served in formalin ; the other an ape's. Dr Wilson's subject was "The Physical Basis of Psychic Mani festations." He apologised for the length of the title.

Road to Success. APPLICATION TELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914
Road to Success. APPLICATION TELLS. Education looks for its justifica tion largely to the proposition that a boy or man trained to con-1 quest in one thing will be vio-1 toriouB over his next difficulty. . I " Faoulty," which is after all largely willingness to work and j to take pains to think closely about the task in hand, is ap-1 plicable almost everywhere. People often say that a man who : ia a genius in one direction is en tirely without faculty in some different work, and yet in many cases where people of great at tainment have turned themselves t > ;> nfff tank they have shown Uie samii. qualities, if in a different decree, which made, them successful elsewhere. It is true that a man trained to oni' kind of work is as likely to olun'W as a novice when turning his hand to something new, and ' 0 ? \ because people are used to seeing him successful they exaggerate his failure at a first attempt. They say that his abilities lie j elsewhere, that he should stick to his own ...

Farm as a Factory. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914

REAL BROKEN HEARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914
REAL BROKEN HEART8. The late Sir George Paget, in one of Ills Icctures which were published some years ago under the editorship of liis son, stated that in most cases where death is attributed to ".broken heart" no rupture of that organ lian actually taken place, although un doubtedly mental troubles do fre quently cause disease of the body. He mentioned an actual case of broken heart which was cited by Dr. J, K. Mitchell, of the Jefferson Col lege, Philadelphia. In an early period of his medical career, Dr. Mitchell acted as ship's doctor to a vessel sail ing from Liverpool to one of the American "ports. He became on very good terms with the captain, who was eagerly anticipating the return voy age because then he was to be mar ried to the lady of his choice. He had brought many coBtly jewels to pre sent to the lady as bridal gifts. So often did the captain discourse upon the lady and her charms that Dr. Mitchell 'became wearied, and avoid ed him whenever he could. When the ship lan...
What She Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914
What She Wanted. Slie walked into the public library and sweetly said: "I would like 'The Red Boat,' please." The librarian diligently searched the catalogue and came back with: "I don't think we have such a book." Flushing a bit, she said sweetly, ?'May the title be 'The Scarlet Yacht?" Again he looked, with the same re-' .eult. Then, with her pretty fingers she dived into her bag, consulted a 'slip of paper, and said: "Oh, I beg your pardon. I mean the 'Rubiyat.'"

SOUND WAVES TELL COURSE OF PASSING SHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914
SOUND WAVES TELL COURSE OF PASSING SHIP. A device for determining' the direc tion of movement of a passing ship in time of fog- or darkness gave satisfac tory results in recent tests at Liver pool, England. This apparatus sim ply registers the directions from which the sound waves come in successive blasts of a steam whistle or fog horn. The receiver, mounted in the rigging of the receiving ship, is shaped like a drum, and has cells, each of which is sensitive to sound waves coming from one direction only. These cells ttie electrically connected with small electric lamps on an indicator board, a lamp being lighted as the corre sponding cell receives a sound impres sion. By the consecutive lighting of ihese lamps the course of the passing Vessel is calculated. In case signals are heard from several ships simul taneously, groups of cells for certain 'directions can be switched out as Tfe quiied.
COFFEE FROM DRIED FIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914
.COFFEE FROM DRIED FIGS. Ii ts claimed that an excellent coffee can be made from dried and roasted .figs, which need not be of the first Quality.. Theynre dried in the sun, or ,ilLevaporating pans, according- to cli mato,~aua-tiion rousted in ovens _}iu_ brown, or almost black and quite brit tle. They are then ground up, and the resultant powder is pressed into tab lets. These must be kept dry. When made use of they are merely dissolved In hot water. One hundred kilos of the dry figs give seventy-five kilos of the --dry powder. The figs cost 15 francs, . knd the powder sells for 60 francs wholesale, and one hundred or more at retail, so that the trade ought to be profitable if a demand can be cre ated. The beverage is said to be agreeable in color and flavor with a somewhat sweeter taste than that made from chicory.

British troops, who had come to the timely assistance of the redcoats a" Inkermann, and had captured the great Maiakhoff -fortress, the key of.'.
