LOCATION OF THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 June 1914

LOCATION OF THE ORCHARD. While many who claim to speak with the voice of authority assert that an orchard should always he upon land which slopes in a given direction, we have seen many agooil orchard in which the slope was in other directions. A "belt of wood or other windbreak may be sufficient protection for It even if it does blos som early. What is of more import ance is that~it should be well drain ed. As an old orcliardist once tolil us, "trees will not stand it to have wet feet all the time any better than you and I would." We think he said apple trees should not be where the water was within four feet of the surface, while pear trees might be set within three feet of the water level if the water was not stagnant, and quinces within one foot. Pears will do well in a ciay soil, while apples and peaches will not unless it is thoroughly underdrained, and oven then peaches will not do as well as on light sandy or gravelly soil. In setting an orchard avoid spots that are known to...

THE MORTIFICATION OF MISS PHIPPS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 June 1914

THE MORTIFICATION OF MISS PHIPPS. By PERCY VERR Miss Phipps had an admirer. Won der as people might, it could not be gainsayed. He had appeared at Al ton Ilousea- gentleman of fine pre sence, elegant dress, and, moreover, young- and engaged board-"presum ably for the season." Now Miss Phipps was not young. Her brother-proprietor ol" tiie Alton brutally declared that she was fifty. Mis Phipps announced herself to he ' thirty-four, nearly thirty-five-no longer a young girl, of course." Whatever her attractions might be, it had certainly been a long time since anyone accused the lady-of extreme youth. But Mr, Lorraine Lewis was young twenty-five, possibly twenty-six-and it was evident that he came to the house because Miss Phipps was there. He was attentive-more, he was de voted to the lady. "Well, there's no accounting for tastes, as. the; woman said when she kissed the cow," declared her sister in-law. Mra.Phlpps was pretty and plunjp. i She had two pretty and plump chil dren.

JOHN LEE'S DREAM. Sentenced to death for the murder of Emma Keyse, lady-in-waiting to tlie late. Queen Victoria, at Babbicombe, near Torquay, John Lee was brought out for execution in Exeter Gaol on February 25, 1885. Overnight Lee had dreamt that three attempts would be made to carry out the sentence, but that all three would prove unsuccess ful, and Uis life be preserved. He re vealed this to Warder Bennett, who reported the circumstance to the go vernor of the prison. All possible pre caution was taken; but, nevertheless, Lee escaped the gallows. Everything having been made ready, Lee stood on the trap of the gallows, which had just recently been erected. The signal was 'given, and Kerry, the executioner, pulled the lever-but the trap refused to fall! The faces of all present expressed be wilderment. Berry gave the lever an other feverish pull, and the warders -311 tither side stamped upon the trap; but it would not move. Lee was then marched off, with the cap still over, his fac...

To the Gouty. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 June 1914

To the Gouty. For those who are liable to attacks of gout, it in an excellent rule to re duce the allowance o! butcher's meat, especially beef, taking it no of loner than onco a day, and preferably at midday instead of in the evening. Di gestion goes 011 very slowly, if nt all, during the hours of sleep, and the habit of eating meat at late dinner or supper is one of the chief causes tend ing to gout and rheumatism of the gouty type. Industry is essential to happiness and idleness is the friend of unliappi ness and ennui. Certain persons al ways will and always have existed who lind employm nt distasteful. Thev are endowed with an indolent disposition, and enjoy nothing more than complete immunity from work and responsibility. Their intense dis like of work of all descriptions en ables them to be ever ready with what they are pleased to consider an adequate excuse. They "did not know," they "thought it had been done," they "believed it was to he done tomorrow," it was "loo hot" or "...

CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 June 1914

CHAPTER XV. During the short remainder of the night of Sheila's ball, Peter Bellairs did not retire to rest. He was deadly weary, but his mind was so full of agitation that sleep was impossible. He had done fairly well in Paris, and had secured at the*>price of ten thou sand -pounds the greater number of the diamonds which had been in the bracelet, but by no means all, for Le Fevre had sold some at a price which he took care not to mention. Bel lairs, Holman, and young Mordecal felt that nothing more could be done, and the unhappy K.C. returned to his home stricken to the heart's core. He put the diamonds which he had secured at so vast'a sum into his safe, intending to take them in the morn ing toMordecai to verify. He found himself' tired and depressed in a scene of brilliant gaiety, and, what was worst of all, lie knew that, owi.ig to his wife's theft, he was again a comparatively poor man. But Bellairs thought very little dur ing the remnant- of that short night either of the...

The best flor ists, the best decorators bad been al* day at Hansell House, and, under the directions of the Duchess of TewkeB bury, had made such a maTked change in its appearance, that Sheila felt she would scarcely know it. By the Duchess's orders she wore her lovely presentation dress and the magnifi cent rope of well-known pearls. Mrs. Bellairs was garbed in a gown of 'pale grey velvet in the very latest ; 6tyle, and her husband's narrow chain of diamonds, with its glittering pen dant, hung from her neck. Beyond his message to Sheila, no word had 'been heard as to Bellairs, and the Duchess felt slightly annoyed at his absence on such an a...

The Ear. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 June 1914

The Ear. The human ear !s a delicate piece of mechanism. That which we ordin arily designate as the "ear,!' 1b, after all, only tho mere outer porch of a series of winding passages' which lead from the world without to the world within. Certain of these passages are filled with liquid, besides having mem branes stretched like parchment cur tains across the corridor at different points. When .1 sound-wavo strikes these they are turned into vibrations and made to tremble like" the head of a drum does when struck with a stick or with the fingers. Between two of these parchment-like curtains a chain of minute bones extends, which serves to tighten or relax the membranes and communicate vibrations to them. In the innermost place of all a row of w' ite threads, called nerves, stretch like the strings of a piano from the last point from which tho tremblings reach, passing thence inward to the brain.

MEDICAL MEMS. Coughs. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 June 1914

MEDICAL MEMS. Coughs. Experience has shown that there are two distinct kinds of coughs-one proceeding from an affection of the lungs and air tubes, as in a simple cold, the other nroceeding from effer vescence in tlie stomach. The Inns cough is a symptom which necessar lly requires attention, lest serious con sequences ensue. The stomach cough is a much more simple matter, and may easily bo got rid of. It is caunc-d by the effervescence of the food and drink which are put into the stomach. A knowledge of this fact ought to lead persons so affected to ponder a little on the nature of their ailment and the peculiarity of their digestive powers. Some stomachs agree best with alkalis, otherB with acids; one person likes a bitter substance, an other, a substance which is sour. The person who desires a satisfactory ex planation of these circumstances will consult his own physician. Many stomach coughs arise from an undue lovo* of sweets-sweet tea, sweet drinks,. sweet cake,- sweet custard...

CAUSE OF SOIL SICKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 June 1914

CAUSE OF SOIL SICKNESS. An interesting and instructive^ papel on the above subject by Dr. .7. K. lias sell, director of the Rothamsted Expert metal Station, and Mr. Walter Buddin was dclivored before the Society of Chemical Industry recently. The paper described 1io\y an accident had shown that with tho partial sterilisation of tho soil it was ablo to absorb oxygen very much moro rapidly than untreated soil. Owing to tho close connection known to exist between tho power of oxvgon absorption of n soil and its productivity, it was thought p-obablo that uuch partially sterilised soils would bo moro productive than untreated soils, and pot experiments proved that this was the case. At this stago in the re search it was found that tho conclusion was not novol, the discovery having be«n mado accidentally in Alsace and confirmed in a laboratory in Germany. An a result of a long series of investiga tions carried out at liolham.ited the followinj propositions had been deliu ItolV established...
