ME ATI AN v ULTIMA. AN INTERESTING GAME. A fair number of football enthusiasts assembled on iho Meatian ground to witness the first competition match of the season, payed between teams re presenting Meatian and Ultima. The ground, which is situated about a quarter of a mile from the township, was not in the best of condition for fast football, owing to the harrows having being ap- plied the same morning. With a shower of rain in the meantime, the ground should prove an ideal one for future matches. The visitors' arrived on the ground at 3 o'clock, but unfortunately the match did not commence until 3.40. Meatian players, regailed in their colors of red, white and blue, presented a uni- form appearance, and were in marked contrast to their opponents in physique, for more than half of their number avera- ged six feet. In the air they beat the Ultimaites almost at every stage, but the visitors' held their own on ground play. N. Booth, of Cannie, was elected captain, and his brother Dick...
ANIMAL TRAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 18 June 1914
ANIMAL TRAINING. Most people have heard of the eeit- j bratcd calculating horses of Elberfeld, who can do anything up to calculating square roots, in addition to being pro iioient at spelling. It would now ap pear, according to tho Paris press, that although theso feats aro actually per formed, they aro duo to a very clover device. An animal trainer has in- | formed tho 'Matin' that ho has utilised a syptom of wireless telegraphy for training animals to do all sorts of tricks. Tho receiver is placed in tho horse's bridle, while tho trainer or an assistant manipulates the transmitter, and by a codo of signals, which aro not difficult to teach, tho animals can be mado to givo any desired "answer." It is suggested that this system is used in tho case of tho celebrated Elherfield horses. Prior to tho utilisation of wire less telegraphy, tho trainer mentioned employed a method of signals by means of a tooth-piclr. i

TINKERING. Jim Blinkouslioofc is always busy, he never knows an idle hour; but all ho does is weird and dizzy, and brings him neither wealth nor power. Ho starts a job with fiery ardor, and tires when it's tin'eo-quarters done; and so'there's little in his larder, and ho is always short of mon. He always has a scheme so splendid it makes all other projects wilt; "you'll see mo classed, when all is ended," he tells his friends, "with Astorbilt." Ho has no lazv bones within him, with energy he's all athrob, but it' iiupossiblo to pin him down to a sane and steady job.

MEAT VERSUS VEGETABLES FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 18 June 1914
MEAT VERSUS VEGETABLES FOR FOWLS. .Six generations of hens were fed. ex clusively on raw flesh by Mr. IT. Houssay, by way of experiment, which, lasted seven years. At first the . no tion of the meat seemed favorable, and at it he end of two years, says "Cos mos," the increase in the size of the birds and improvement of their laying and plumage would have led to the con clusion that this diet was benefioial. As time went on, however, there were signs of poisoning and organic fatigue; deforming arthritis appeared, only cured-by a return to vegetables. All the organs were greatly modified, and heredity of these changes was beyond doubt, as they were found on chicks before they were old enough to be af- ! foctod by growth.,. • Mr. Houssay also noted .that the flesh diet was particularly injurious to the germs and consequently to the breed. In fact, the percentage of fer tile eggs fell from 100 to 6.85 during the experiment. The-vitality of the-chickens likewise decreased continually, an...

ALL CLOCKS TO KEEP TIME. Every day at noon Greenwich time is telegraphed to the post-offices of the chief towns in the kingdom, but in ac cordance with a reform that is now con templated by the Post Office, for the outlay of' £2 a year, business houses public institutions, and other large or ganisations can have all their clocks 66t at Greenwich time every hour. ' Master clocks will be put up at all distributing centres, and these' will transmit hourly impulses to the pre mises of persons requiring the 'service.

HYPNOTIC CATS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 18 June 1914
HYPNOTIC CATS. Treading on a cobra sitting up ready to strike, a resident in India, whose ex periences are related in the "Field," > wondered why the deadly fangs were delayed. Looking' round, he noticed his eat crouching andv gazing at the reptile 1 steadily with mesmeric effect, for the snake seemed unable to move, and while in this condition he killed it. Another time, when sleeping in an open cot in tho verandah, he woke to find on one side of the bed a huge cobra with head erect ready to.strike, on the other the glistening green eyes of. his cat. The snake remained quite still, so he ran into tho room to fetch a gun, and; coining -back, poked tho reptile's head with the barrels; but it did not take the slightest notice, and seemed like a stuffed and lifeless crea ture. He then placed his hand in front of the cat's eyes .by .way of experiment, when immediately the spell was remov ed, the cobra raised itself, hissed, and assumed an offensive attitude.

How to Neutralise Dangerous Stomach Acids. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 18 June 1914
How to Neutralise Dangerous Stomach Acids. Few people beside physicians realise the importance of keeping ilie food contents of the stomach free from acid fermentation. Healthy normal digestion cannot take place while the delicate lining of the stomach is being inflamed and distended by acid and wind— the results ot fermenting food in the stomach. To secure perfect digestion, fermentation must be stopped or prevented, and the acid neutralised. For this purpose physicians usually recommend getting a little bisnrated magnesia from the chemist and taking half a teaspoonful in a little hot or cold water immed ately after eating. They recommend bisurated mag nesia because it is pleasant to take, has no disagreeable alter effects, and instantly stops fermentation, neutralises the acid and makes the sour and acid food bland, sweec and easily digested. The regular use of bisurated magnesia—be sure you get the bisurated, as other kinds of mag nesia are of little value—is an ab solute guarant...
