Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 September 1914

Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth. ,Has any reader ever got bitten by a serpent ? Present deponent is childishly ignorant in regard to ser pents and their teeth, outside Shakos peare's popular but unconvincing re marks on the subject. Also ho has never anywhere met a man or woman who had been bitten by a serpent. ITe had heard of one, at least—Evo, to wit, his and your rove fed great great-ete.-grandmother. An Ipswich lady of our acquaintance takes iio stock in serpent's teeth, but she has an abidingly womanly interest in table cntlcry. What was hor joy, then, when she found, in reply to a letter, enclosing one shilling to the Secretary, Might Hour Art Union, Sydney, that she had gained a prize ! Perhaps—women are women, you know—she would have preferred a diamond necklet or two, but never theless she rejoiced in her dividend for one shilling—a canteen of cutlery in solid nak cabinet, with drawers, worth fifteen guineas. And the knives wore sharper than any ser pent's teeth over invent...

Correspondence. RATING REFORM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 September 1914

Correspondence. [Wearonot responsible for. opinions expressed by our Correspondents] I EATING REFORM. To tiie Editor. Sir,—Under our present antiquated system, if a man clears his land or builds a house, it is not long before the rate collector calls on him for more taxes. He is treated as a crim inal, and fined for having improved the distinct in which he lives. In stead of increasing his taxes, we should rather encourage him to de velop the latent utilities of the land in his possession. Only when ho is so doing is he any good to tho com munity. He is employing labor, pro ducing wealth, giving more business to tho railways, and generally actiug as a good citizen should. On the other hand, the man who holds his land idle is the reverse of all these. He is like the dog in the manger. He cannot eat tho hay himself, and won't let any other creature have it. Tho holding of tho land idle should be discouraged, not encouraged, as at present. Why should our farmers and others, who improve...

THE WAY TO TALK TO THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 September 1914

i THE WAY TO TALK TO THEM. A dirty farmer, writing to "Hoard's Dairyman," wants to bo told what to put into milk to make it stay sweot for three or four days—and ho<v to mix it. And this is how "Hoard's" answers him:— ! "Xo, we will not, and for this rea sou: It is agaiust the laws of the Fed eral Government and practically every State and eity government to put any thing into milk to make it stay sweet. It is a criminal act to dope milk with [preservatives. So much has been said and written on this subject that we are at a loss to understand why anyone should not know about it. There is a way to keep milk sweet. Keep it clean and cold. Keep the dirt out. Take the heat out at once after milking. A clean, healthy cow milked by a clean, healthy milker i>i a clean, sanitary barn and handled in clean utensils will produce an article thai will not need to be doped. Jf it T'll not keep when immediately cooled it i not lit for human food."
