FAILURE OF EXPERIMENTAL FARMS. At the time when the Queensland Minister for Agriculture is seriously revising the position and prospects of some of his experimental farms, it is iuteresting to note that in New South Wales similar misgivings are finding expression in the annual re port of the Department. The Under Secretary writes: "After the experi nae of a pleriod ranging from 10 to 10 years on a number of our farms. there seems hardly .any round for belieying that a Government institu tion under existing conditions can demonstrate to ordinary farmers pro litable and successful farming from the monetary point of view. The balance sheets of the demonstration :reas at Wa lla and Bathurst show rood net results; but in view of the bIare debit bialances on the whole of the operations, they do not give far ,uers the entire satisfaction I would like." It is now recognised that on lthe school armls it will be nlecessary -till to cultivate an area suffllicient to -ire all studcuts opportuni...

Others, egain, are positively amazing-in the variety and nature of the oustoms by wsllieli they were to be held. ,'or: instance, thle Ldidship of Bures, in lN~ex, was held by the sergeantry of o.:,liing- the King's hogs; Carleton, in Nottingham, by hle service of one catapullt in the year for all services; two farmls at Carlcoats, Yorkshire. by tile service of finding, one a right liand glove, and the other a left hand glove, tile whole of the Manor of Caldeoote was hIeld by Humphrey de Blhm by virtue of being Lord High Constable of Einglanil--a post now abolishled on ac colunt of the degree of power and spleu dour ...

Should Dyspeptics Diet. A Specialist's Valuable Advice. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 1 May 1914
Should Dyspeptics Diet. A Specialist's Valuable Advice. 'Dyspepsia, indigestion, flutu lence and practically all forms of stomach trouble," writes a leading specialist, "are in neiarly every in stance the direct result of food fer mentation'and the consequent pro duction in the stomach of acid and gas which irritate and distend the stomach and make normal diges ion impossible. The gas by dis tending the stomach and pressing upon the surrounding vital organs seriously interferes with their work, and frequently causes palpitation of the heart; but the acid is much mere dangerous, because it irritates, then inflames and even ulcerates the delicate lining ,f the stomach, producing dabngerous stomach ulcers and even cancer. Food fermenta tion being primarily responsible for all the trouble, it was long tue cus tom of physicians to permit thd use only ot such foods as could not ferment, but unfortunately unfer mentable foods were soon loundl to be so lacking in nutrition as to re sult in ...
