How to Avoid Appendicitis. SOME USEFUL HINTS BY A HOSPITAL MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 April 1914

How to Avoid Appendicitis. SOME USEFUL HINTS BY A HOSPITAL MAN. Appendicitis is such au increas ingly 'common ailment that no apo logy is needed for giving a few practical remarks concerning the avoidance of it. It is only a few years 'since the very word "appendicitis" was totally unknown to the man in the man in the street, and it is wholly due to the rapid advance of the science of strgery that we are now enabled to offer such advice as may be of invaluable service to those who are predisposed to this danger ous malady. Appendicitis is, in strictly lay 1annuas>e, inflammation of the ap pendix, which is a small arm, or "finger" Df the intestines. When the appendix has been re moved from the body of a patient by the surgeon's knife, it resembles nothing more closely than a quill tooth-pick, such as one sees in any big restaurant. The appendix is is not so straight as a tooth-pick, and it has a blind end. It is like three inches of- white worm. Ordinarily an attack of appendi cit...

A Farmer Prince. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 April 1914

A Farmer Prince. Few people who see the hands at work on a certain farm at Fairfold Gloucestershire, realise that one of them is a Prince and a nephew of Queen Alexandra Prince Eric of Denmark is a son of Prince Walde mar, Queen Alexandra's youngest brother, and is destined for a sphere in agreement with the tastes and pursuits of his country.

Duck Shooting at the Basin. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 April 1914

Duck Shooting at the Basin. The second opening duck shoot organised for Saturday morning last on Lake Waranga proved none too successful— in fact; it was only a few fortunate sports who managed to get any birds at all. The failure of the venture was no doubt attii butable to the lack of guns, as not nearly enough people took part to keep the birds on tlie win2. Duck were plentiful enough, but on such a wide expanse of water it requiies a number of shooters to ktep them moving with a chance of seeming good bags. The largest bag ob tained that we (Rushworth "Chro nicle") have heard of 'was nine, while there were several of five and sis, but the majority got none.

ARRIVAL OF THE OSTRICHES AN IMPOSING SPECTACLE. Another Important Industry in Our District. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 April 1914

ARRIVAL OF THE OSTRICHES • AN IMPOSING SPECTACLE. Another Important Industry in Our District. GROUP OF BIRDS. The biggest consignment of ostriches ever handled in the State, if not in the Commonwealth, arrived by special train from Wodonga, at 10 am. on Friday morning at Strathallaii, midway be tween Rochester and Echuca. The birds were consigned from Coonamble, in New South \\ ales, and are intended "fur Mr H. T. Sanderson's farm at Ba rnawm, where ostrich raiding and the cultivation of feathers is to be carried out on a large scale. Fifteen trucks were required to carry the birds to Strathallau, where they ar rived in good condition after their long journey. The arrival of the big birds was kept a secret owing to the antici pated timidity of the ostriches in their new surroundings. The fact that an angry ostrich is no mean foe where the average man is concerned also weighed with the consignee in having the unique happening at Strathallaa kept quet. When the average horse sees an o...

Pig Raising. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 April 1914

Pig Raising. The following letter, written by W. H. Naucarrow, of Bendigo, ap peared in Tuesday's "Advertiser": "Sir,—Knowing your willingness to give ventilation to any subject ject affecting our irrigation districts, and our mutual interests, to see that they become, as they should, great centres of production, the writer craves a little space to give his opinion ou a subject which seems to be causing our Rochester friends some concern, viz., pig raising. Some months ago you had a very able article in your paper dealing with the whole subject, and one of the problems mentioned was the rise and fall in the market value of pigs. You pointed out that the trouble lay in the fact that sufficient judgment was not exercised in re gard to breeding. When pigs ap pear chf-ap, many farmers cease to breed, with the consequence that store pigs become scarce. Farmers tumble over one another iu their anxiety to get some of ihe big p> ices which rule at these times, but, alas, with the same co...

PEN-POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 April 1914

PEN-POINTS. None are so blind ns those who can not see. It takes a good deal of philosophy to take things as they come, but it requires more to part with things as they go. All women are two-faced—"before preparing their toilettes and after. Truths which have to be whispered are usually false. Heights, whether physical or men tal, usually induce dizziness. The Austin Hospital for Incurables, the one institution in the State which undertakes the careful tending and the tender relieving of the most piti able cases of physical human suffer ing which can possibly toe conceived. What that endurance must ,be is not possibly known to the outsider. There are bald facts that cover a world of hidden meaning. Sooner or later the strain becomes too much for those who work in the hospital, and a 'breakdown comes. The nerves go; no nvoman can stand for very long the sight of the ghastly torture of the cancer wards, and the utter hopeless ness of the fight where pain and death must inevitably be v...

Pity the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 April 1914

Pity the Editor. "What's the matter?" inquired the foreman as he entered the sanctum for copy, and noted the editor's swol len forehead, puffed red eye and tat tered, dusty coat. "Did you fall down stairs ?" "No—only that," replied the editor, pointing with his finger to a para graph in the paper before him. "It's in. our account of the Crapley-Smith •wedding. It ought to read: 'Miss Smith's dimpled, shining face formed a pleasing contrast to Mr. Crapley's strong, hold physiognomy.' But see how it was printed." And the foreman- read: "Miss Smith's pimpled, skinny face formed a pleasing contrast to Mr. Crapley's strange, bald physiognomy." i "Crapley was in here just now," [ concluded the editor sadly. Mr. Lloyd George has been telling some stories bearing on his own un popularity with his political oppon ents.

WHEN IS A COW OLD? [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 April 1914

WHEN IS A COW OLD Provided that a cow lias been an exceptional milker in her prime, slie may be worth keeping long after her best days on the chance that she may breed heifers like herself. Although there .is no guarantee that a good cow will yield good milk ing heifers, it is certain that a bad cow will not, so the good ones should be kept as long as possible. The ulti mate loss of an old animal is nothing to the possible milk gain from a strain of good heifer calves. In an ordinary way a cow should be sold at her ninth or tenth year. She is then passing her top yield in milk, and is still worth a payable price for beef i£ in good condition; but there are many exceptions to this rule, and ill health may knock off an animal at any age. There is no reason to be lieve that the calves produced late in life will be inferior, and there is no conclusive evidence that the milk of an old cow is any poorer than that of a younger one; while if a young bull is used the balance will be kept.

WASTE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 April 1914

WASTE. By Wm. North. A great manufacturer of table mus tard once said that lie would not mind making the public a present of all the mustard they could eat so long as he was paid double for all they wasted. Sellers of garden seeds say much the same, and one could go on multiplying examples of the same sort of thing. Too good an example might be found in many a bird room, while the owner of a solitary cage bird is almost invariably wasteful. Some waste is inevitable, so far as the birds are concerned, though ac loual and total waste may be saved by Living all the sweepings from the cage or aviary to the poultry, assum ing any are kept. Apart from that, however, a great deal may be done to keep down the seed bill, and the surprising thing is that so few fan ciers give the matter a thought. Seed mixtures are the most fruit ful cause of waste and, save' in a large aviary, their use is not to be re commended. Every bird has its likes and dislikes, and given a dish of seed, it will fing e...
