St. Mary's Church, Trafalgar ANNUAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
St. Mary's Church, Trafalgar ANNUAL MEETING. The annual meeting of the above was held in the school hall on Wed- nesday, 14th, when a representative gathering of members of the con- gregation took place. The balance sheet and report showed encourag- ing progress. The evening congre- gations reached a higher average than in any previous year, except in 1910. The offertories totalled 15 per cent, more than in the previous year, though the previous year had been high-water mark, The morning congregations have also been larger than ever before, but this is due to the large number of children who have been attending. Additional interest was imparted to the meeting owing to the impend- ing departure of Mr J. P. Martin, who for some years has been Church Sec- retary. The Rev. C. L. Orossley spoke in the highest terms of the work done by Mr Martin, and on behalf of him- self and the congregation wished him God speed. Mr Martin, in a feeling response, said it came us a wrench to him to leave...

Tho hand toivojp are embroidered with more or less elaborateness. On guest towels two-inch letters are ombroidered to match tbe other embroidery.

AGRICULTURE AS A PROFITABLE PURSUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 30 January 1914
AGRICULTURE AS A PROFIT ABLE PURSUIT. Increased knowledge is necessary to tlio existence of agriculture as a profit able pursuit. Tor the competition of the world is becoming kt'cncr every year} and tin* primeval low of the* survival of the fittest never ceases to fx* ruth lessly eutormed. It is tlu* innin object of agricultural jo mialisin to point tin* way in this respect, am! to endeavor to inculcate more up-to-date and scien tific ways &lt;if getting the most out of tin* soil.

THE VIXEN! By LGWIN FITZHAMON. VubJJuhed by Arrangement with Wnnl, Lock Co., Molbourne. All Rlght-B Resftrved. CIIAPTliTi XLVI. Tito Court hnd risen for luncheon, and every restaurant in Die vicinity of the Law Courts wan inconveniently packed; the busy clink of knife and fork, china and glass, offered ^philo sophic contrast to the continuous inur rniir of subdued argument. The gen eral topic of conversation was Miss Purney's evidence.

CHAPTER Xr.VlI. John Pott, In company of his nephew, visited the shop of one Seena, a tobacconist. "I have conic," said Cott, "to claim the monies for a certain pipe, do you remember?" "I remember perfectly well," smiled the tobacconist, "but you cannot have the monies." "But, you pirate, I won my case." "But not the bet," answered Mr. Seena. "Do you deny that the plaintiff did not benefit?" "Not so," replied the tobacconist and philosopher. "But the plaintiff was innocent, so you pay for the oir \ I wished T had charged double f tv It!" "This is double dealing with a ven geance," grumbled John Cott. "I Insist upon the return of its very exorbitant price." "Why not let Miss Burncy decide," suggested his nephew, laughing. "A very proper suggestion," agreed tho King's Counsel. "I am going to her now. Pirate, give me a box of Seena clgarcttes." "With great pleasure, sir, and I ab solutely refuse to charge for them." Young Mr. Penistone Cott handed tho K.C. into a cab. "Good luclc, Uncl...

IRON FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 30 January 1914
IRON FOR FOWLS. Iron iB present In the Jowl's bo&lt;ly; part of this iron is In an organised form In the red corpuscles of the blood. Tho total amount of iron 1b small, but nevertheless, it is ot great importance, and a deficiency re sults in anaemia. Ono frequently finds that eggs laid by insufficiently fed fowls have pile yolks. Tho coloring of the yolk is duo to pigments, and, possibly, to the phospholiplne termed lecithin. Iron, in an organised form. Is fonnd in the ash of.tho egg. Vegetable foods, es pecially clover and luceme, are rich in minerals, and their uso results in richly-colored yolks. Anaemic fowls may be easily troated by administer ing to each five drops of perchloride of iron in a teaBpoon ot well-sweeten ed milk. This is a very choap tonic, and is bettor in many ways than the ordinary sulphate of iron (copperas).

SOME SALUTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 30 January 1914
SOME SALUTATIONS. 1 Tiie prostration and tbo Gftlnam, sal utations that many Orientals use, aro only more pronounced forms or tho bow. So there is a connection between the embraco, so common in civilised countries, and the greeting of a mem ber of the Koiari tribe of British New Guinea, who, in saluting a missionary, placed ono arm abou this neck and stroked him under the chin. ^ . Among: the Masai and the "Ukerewo it is a mark of respect to greet an ac quaintance or a stranger by spitting at him. Almost as strange is the cus tom ascribed to the Tibetans of putting out the tongue by way of salutation. Rubbing noses isr quito common; tho Burmese and many tribes of Kskimos, Laplanders, and Malays do so. Stranger than any of these customs is tho weeping salutation that has been observed among Central South Amer- \ ican Indians. This form of greeting occurs too in tbo Andaman Islands, New Zealand, and Polynesia. A Por tuguesc explorer thus describes tho cus tom as he saw it used among a...
