The Dreaded Cancer. INCREASE OF THE DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 28 May 1914
The Dreaded Cancer. Increase of the Disease. During recent years there has been an "alarming, increase in the number of cases of cancer in Vic toria. Dr Robertson, chairman of the Board of Health, stated the other day that as tuberculosis was diminishing in the State cancer was' increasing • steadily. In certain . cases it had been noted that persons who moved into a house where a former resident had' died of the dis ease had contracted the disease, j Naturally, in view of such experi i ences, -the assumption was that the disease is infectious and contagious.. The researches carried out in Eng land do not support the, theory, but there should be some independent endeavor to ascertain here whether . it is so. In 1912 the deaths from cancer in Victoria numbered 1225, as against 1000 for 1911, and the' death rate was nine per 10,000 of the popula tion, which is the highest rate in Australasia. The following is a tabulation of the death rates per 10,000 of the population :— Victoria ......
"Killjoys" and Religion. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 28 May 1914
" Killjoys'* and Religion. A stir has been caused in Ballarat Methodist circles by some remarks made by Rev. Henry Howard, of Adelaide, during a lecture delivered in Ballarat last week. Mr Howard, who is well-known as one of the most forcible preachers in his' de nomination, said that if any man's religion was of the kind that he could not have a laugh in a church, then the sooner it was knocked on the head and laid out for buiial the ' better. Mr Howard said, " God's house Should be the happiest place on earth, and men should be able to ' have as good a laugh there as any where when the occasion warran- * ted." There were some people/ he said, who would not have a picnic' without a pra3'er meeting tacked on to it. Personally he liked picnics and he liked prayer meetings, but he did not care for them mixed. 1
Caterpillars Attack Wheat Crops. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 28 May 1914
Caterpillars Attack Wheat Crops. Reports from Tooyal and other localities north of Wagga, state that very serious damage is • being done among the early wheat crops by caterpillars. In some parts they have appeared in countless millions, and have eaten everything green which they have been able to reach. One farmer had 400 acres of crop completely eaten, and was obliged to resow the whole of the area. When eaten off by the caterpillars, the wheat plant will not grow again, so that it is necessary, where they have obtained the niastery, to put in fresh seed. Usually caterpillars do not make their appearance in east ern Riverina till the spring. The eaterpillar is said to be iden tical with what is known as the Bo gong species. Some years ago one ' or two farmers in the Wagga dis trict saved their crops from invasion from the pest by digging trenches round the paddock ana covering the' bottom with tar. The insects went into the trenches in masses, and re main stuck in the tar. A good ...
No Real Change. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 28 May 1914
No Real Change. A well-known M.P. at a dinner-party , the other day said of a Bill that he . disliked: "I object to this bill because it would accomplish nothing. It would make no real change. It would be like the case: of the actor and the canal boat-captain. "There was once upon a time an actor who," after an enforced idleness 01 two months,, was lucky enough to - secure an engagement in- a town twen ty-five miles away. The case was a hurry-up one. The actor had to reach the distant town that night. If he failed to arrive, then his part would be assigned to some one else "Well, the man patched-his worn boots, put his few belongings in a par cel, and set out in the early morning on foot along the tow-path. He had only a few coppers, hence the train was an impossibility. But after the poor fellow had covered some six or seven miles, his boots gave out, blis ters rose on his feet, fatigue over came him, and in despair he threw himself on the grass beneath a tree. "As he lay there in ...
