AIDS FOR THE CRIMINAL. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 January 1914

AIDS FOR THE CRIMINAL. "Many a criminal would be a me chanical genius, if he ran straight," said a police-officer to a pressman recently. And he proved his words by showing the journalist some aids to crime. "Look at this. It is a pair of specially thin tongs, like gigantic tweezers. Its use is to- purloin money from money-boxes. It is quite simple, and in expert hands most successful. "The dog-bite machine is like a hard vice, with` jaws made like teeth. Screwed into place on the human leg for a short time, it leaves an exact impression of a dog's bite. Then fol lows a claim for damages. "A simple device is this, used by shoplifters. Wax is pressed into the hollow of the boot, between the heel and the, sole. The 'kleptomaniac' quickly drops a piece of jewellery, or any small article on the floor. Then it is easy to place the foot over it, embedding the booty in the wax." A tenant of a Paris flats has been killed, and five others injured by the caretaker with a lighted candle en ter...

The Dyspeptic's Handicap. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 January 1914

The Dyspeptic's Htandicap.. The dyspeptic is sorely handicapped in. this life. If he is a ian- he can't keep with his fellows because of the weakness, the depression, and the suffering that indigestion inevitably brings in its train. If a woman, she often finds it impossible to.car.ry out the daily household tasks, or meet the demands of a business occupation because headaches, distressing bilious at tacks, palpitation, and: sleeplessness . are spoiling her life. This strenuous age wants men and women of strong fibre, boundless energy, and great cheerfulness, but the dyspeptic is not amongst the number. How can lie expect to be? HIow can he hope to get thwough the day's work speedily and effi ciently if his mind is clouded and his system clogged with the poisonous pro ducts of indigestion? How.can any man, or woman either, work well and cheer fully when the well-springs of good health and" strength-the stomach, liver and bowels-are disorganised and weak ened.? It can't be done.

WHAT IS CASEIN? [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 January 1914

JWHAT IS CASEIN ? Prof. H. H. Dean, in answer to the question, "What is casein ?" says in. the "Farm and Dairy": "It is the -chief nitrogenous com pound found in milk, and consists, chemically, of the elements carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen. It is distinguished from milk. fat in that it contains the element nitrogen, the most valuable of all elements for plant, animal and human food. It is the most expensive fertiliser which the farmer needs to purchase. It is the most expensive ingredient Tvhic'a the housekeeper buys in food. The. white of an egg, the lean portion of meat, the curd of cheese, are com mon examples of foods containing the element nitrogen. It alone builds muscle in the, animal or human body. Plants deprived of nitrogen wither and die. Cascin is secreted in milk by the cow by means of special cell activity. Its primary source is the nitrogen ous material in the food fed to a cow, which is transformed into blood and from the blood it passes into the milk:'.throu...

THIEVES IN BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 January 1914

THIEVES IN BUSINESS. The Diamond-merchants of. Hatton Garden are among the wealthiest traders in London, and one would as soon expect to find pickpockets in the peerage as a gang of robbers of the worst type trading as diamond-mer chants in a dignified suite of rooms in Hatton Garden. Nevertheless, some time ago a gang of experienced criminals were in business in Hatton Garden as dia mond - merchants on a considerable scale, and their reason for setting up in that particular line was that they had £70,000 worth of rough diamonds to dispose of, their entire collection having been stolen from a post-office. eafe in South Africa.. It isn't often that criminals are so. bold as the men of this gang must' have been, for Hatton Garden is per haps one of the best-policed locali ties of all London, and considerable: courage must have been necessary for them to have established them selves there, with no more lawful reason than, that they had £70,000; worth of stolen diamonds which they, wish...

WONDER-GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 January 1914

WONDER-GRASS. The African wonder-grass (Panicum spectabile) has proved one of' the best grasses introduced into Western Australia. It has succeeded in almost every .place w.h~re it has been tried, both in the dry and moist situations, and the introduction of this grass for stock owners is worth several times over all the money that has been spent for grass seeds and ex perimenting with grasses during the last few Jears. At the Bathurst Experimental Farm this grass has proved a vigor ous grower, is unaffected by frosts, and- sheep like it well. At several of the West Australian experiment.l farms it has given the most promis ing results ; in fact, it seems to stand the dry weather better than any grass that we have yet had growing. It appears to do equally well in sandy and clayey land and also in dry places. This grass grows most luxuria.ntly, and, as well as the up right growth, it sends out long late ral stems which form ffesh roots at the nodules and cause the. grass to spread qu...

THE CAREFUL DRIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 January 1914

THE CAREFUL DRIVER. How many acres of tillable farm land will one horse work? This, of course, depends on the kind of farm ing done, on' the kind of machinery used and on the efficiency of the man who works the horses. It would not he difficult to find 100 acres of tillable land worked in one case with two good horses and from this on up to six work horses. Pro bably more depends on the ability of the driver to handle his horses than any other one thing. Some drivers will take more out of their horses at one round with the plough than another will in two rounds. In one case the ploughing is done in a haphazard sort of way, the horses are tangled at the ends, are backed and turned unnecessarily, are jerked viciously when out of line, and possibly the harnesses do not fit properly. In the other case the horses are given a steady, true gait which is kept up, the turns are smooth and without yelling, and jerking, and the driver watches the workings of his \plough and fit of his harnesse...

THE DAIRY. WHAT DAIRY FARMING DOES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 January 1914

THE DAIRY. WHAT DAIRY FARMING DOES. What does dairy farming do for the man and the farm? It places in the hands of the man who follows dairying for his occupa tion the means of keeping up the fertility of his land as no other form of farm occupation does. Men have tried substitute farming, selling off the cows and depending on commer cial fertilisers for their soil mainten ance and been compelled to see the steady deterioration of their land values. Dairy farming gives us a steady source of supply for cows. In this country we never witnessed such a dearth of really good cows as there is to-day. What will be the outcome if there is not a steady returning to the old, way of raising the best calves ? We can any of us answer that question. The people df our great cities, young and old will go hungry for milk and butter. Dairy farming is a mighty help in the keeping of poultry. As a feed for hens, milk-skimmed or butter-milk-. stands well up towards the head in food value. Eggs and milk ...

What dairyman is buying more land or putting up better buildings or making himself a richer man and a better farmer with scrub cattle ? What has made productive cows, prosperous dairymen and progressive communities ? Dairy blood.-"' 'National Stockman and Farmer." 1905. Cramp in the Leg.-Persons subject to cramp in the leg should always be provided with a good strong cord, and when the cramp comes on, take the cord, wind -it round the leg over the place that is cramped, take an end in each hand, and give it a sharp pull, one that will hurt a lit tle, and the cramp will cease in stantly. 1905.

SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. ITS TERRORS : ITS DELIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 February 1914

SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. ------+---- ITS TERRORS : ITS DELIGHTS. Except for journeys round the fringe of South America, travelling there it a desperate business. No where else surely in the world are fevers so malignant, forests and rivers so vast and uninhabited, and insects and snakes so murderous. More than one person has started up the Amazon, meaning to reach Peru and travel to Lima via one of the Amazon tributaries, and then by an unfinished railway which he strikes some few hundred miles out side Lima ; but has been turned back at Para, at the very mouth of the river, by a murderous onslaught of mosquitoes, wasps, and bees of in credible size, and chigoes which per sisted in laying eggs in the skin of his toes. A French traveller, who started from Guayaquil, crossed the Andes of Ecuador to the Amazon, and then descended the river, eould not make up his mind which scenery was gran der and which horrors were worse, those of the mountains or the river. The well-known ships of the ...
