When Lovely Woman [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 27 August 1914

When Lovely Woman Wants anything1, she gets it. A caso in point is supplied by an inci dent in the life of a lady resident in Toowoouiba. Sho wauted a grand piano badly—not for herself or even for tho benefit of her neighbors, who, it mast be confessed, had a prejudice against pianos. Airs Blanc wantod it for her daughcr, Gladys, who had got very tired of the rattle-trap of a cottage piano ou which a generation of Blancs had been taught. Possibly the long life of this piano had some thing to do with the coldness of the neighbors' attitude. Well, Jlr Blanc —one of those uncouth persons who don't know a note of music from a bar of soap—wouldn't do anything to further his daughter's ambition. Mrs Blanc did. She wrote down to tho secretary, Eight Hour Art Union, Sydney, enclosing a shilling, and a few months later she had tho ploaB ure of presenting Gladys with a "Code Melotone" worth £102. It only oost her one shilling, but she was as prond of her gift as if she had paid the full amoun...

Correspondence. [We are not responsible for opinions expressed by our Correspondents] THE CLIMBING MARROW. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 27 August 1914

Correspondence. [We are not rosponsiblo for opinions expressed by our Correspondents] THE CLIMBING MARROW. I To THE EDITOK. Sir,—Ever on the qnivive for plants that will prove useful and profitable for our people, and the country gene rally, I have succeeded in procuring the above novel and prolific vegetable and it can be more easily cultivated over a wider range of country than the famous "Guada Bean," which, although a tropical plant, has now been grown successfully throughout most of the Commonwealth, and in several districts has attained the al most incredible length of 5ft Gin. The climbing vogetabla marrow is a rapid grower, the vines reaching the length of 10ft to 13ft, and they should be trained on a fencs or trel lis. Within a few months from the time of planting the vegetables hang down to the enormous length of 4ft and 5ft, and prcsont a pleasant and surprising spectacle. When young they -provide an excellent dish, and may be cooked in various ways. The Savor if excellen...

Practical Prescription Against Stomach Acidity. By a Specialist. "Nine-tenths of all oases of stom ach trouble nowadays,"'says a leading specialist, "are caused by too much acid. Id the beginning the stomach itself is not diseased, but if this acid condition is allowed to continue the acid is very likely to eat into the stomach walls and produce stomaoh ulcor or cancer, either of which may vendor a radical surgical operation necessary, even to prolong life. Therefore, an acid stomach is really a dangerous condition, and should bo treated seriously. It is utterly use leas taking pepsin and other and or dinary stomaoh tablets. The excess acid must be neutralised by the ad ministration of an efficient antacid. For this purpose physicians nearly always recommend taking half a tea spoonful of bisurated magnesia in a little water after each meal. Larger quantities may be nsed if necessary, ai it is absolutely harmless. But be sure to get the bisurated magnesia, as other forms of magnesia ...

AMERICAN FARM LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 27 August 1914

AMERICAN FARM LAND. According to a rccent census, the laud area in crops in the United States where aoreage was given was 311,000,000 acres. This is about 16 per cent of the total land area, or about 27 per cent, of the estimated po tential tillable area of the United States, excluding foreign possessions. In other words, for every 100 acres that are now tilled, about 375 acres may be tilled when the country is fully, developed. In the development of tho agriculture of the country, tho land which was most easily brought into a state of cultivation, as the great Mis sissippi Valley, was the first to bo brought into such use. Extension of tilled area will bo at greater espenso for clearing, drainage, irrigation, etc. The increased production of tho fu ture will be the result of increased j-ields per acre as well as extension of area.

Road-Making Plant. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 27 August 1914

Road-Making Plant. In order that councillors may have an idea as to what some shires are doing in this direction, we publish   below two letters that Mr Piers Kelly (shire secretary) has receivsd. In   the first place it may be pointed out that the revenue of the Ballan shire is £4500, that of Ripon shire being £7300, and Corio shire £6000. There are many factors that must be considered in dealing with a proposal to purchase a road-making plant. Given sufficient work, any expendi- ture in this direction will show a handsome profit, and the proposal is worthy of serious consideration. So much so that we think it would be wise if councillors agreed to have a special meeting, for a big proposal like this is likely to be scamped at an ordinary meeting.   SHIRE OF CORIO. Mr Piers Kelly has» received the following letter from the engineer of Corio shire (Mr A. G. Oliver):— In reply to yours of the 4th inst., I am pleased to give you the following inf...
