COURSING. DOPING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 May 1914

G0URSIN3. DOPING. " Hotspur'' writes as follows iu the " Leader" : One of the most frequently dis cussed ' subjeots in coursing circles is the doping problem. For a long time it has been a common practice to give greyhound stimulants, in order to invigorate them and get the most speed out of them for a course. The practice has become ft fiiio art at meet ings held in enclosures, -where so much depends on the race to the hare for the first turn, but followers of the leash who course in the open fields do not. dope thair greyhounds save in a few instances, and then only in the final when a dog may have been gruelled in former rounds. There are some sportsmen who are bitter op. ponents of using stimulants, and who disdain the practice for the reason that the dope acts ns a poison in the system, and adversely ftffeot the animal for future breeding purposes. More over they characterise doping as an unsportsmanlike proceeding. During the past few years I have closely watched the doings of...

Why Your Stomach Hurts A DOCTOR'S COMMON-SENSE ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 May 1914

Why Your Stomach Hurts 1 A DOCTOR'S COMMON-SENSE -ADVICE. > Pain in the stomach, variously | called indigestion, dyspepsia, ; flatu lence, heartburn, stomach-ache, etc., is usually attributed to some unnatural, . abnormal or diseased condition of the j stomaoh itself. Nothing, however, I could be further from the truth. Nineteen times out of twenty the stomach is absolutely healthy and normal, the pain and discomfort being entirely due to the acidity " and fermentation of food which irritates and distends the stomach ; although if this condition is allowed to run on, in time the constant irritation of the acid is likely to eat into the stomach walls and produce ulcers and sometimes cancer of the stomach, Medicine is useless in such a case.; The acid and fermenting food must be removed by a stomach pump or an emetic, or you must neutralise the acid and stop the fermentation by taking, lwlf-a.- tea spoonful of bisurated: magnesia in a little water. This latter is by far the simpler...

The society created a line impression in its ~iirst"con cert last spring, when it was known as the " Male choir," and since that time the leading lady singers o£ the town have joined its ranks, and this is certain to greatly enhance the enjoy able nature ot the performances. The society has been assiduously practising for a considerable time past, under its capable and enthusiastic conductor (Mr Cutler), and will render several part songs. The male choir will also appear in part songs, and in addition the programme contains quartets, duets, songs, and instrumental selec tions by the best, of local talent. Apart from the splendid programme which will be presented, the society as a musical combination deserves liberal support, and no doubt the town hall will be again crowded.

Thistle Act. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 May 1914

Thistle Act. At a meeting of the Oreswiok Shire Council on Thursday, a letter was re ceived from Talbot shire, stating that in view of the probability of legisla tion being shortly proposed to render the enforcement of the Thistle Act compulsory on all shires, the counoil | considered that many thistles were not noxious weeds, but good fodder for stock and ft protection to the grass from frosts, winds, etc. An expres sion of opinion of the Oreswiok shire was asked as to the advisability of leaving the enforcement of the Act to the option of the councils, whose ex perience ronders them more likely to Vie the Vjeafc judge?, The President (Or Fawcett) said the proposal of tho Talbot shire seemed {easfi)l& 1! they loft the adwinJatra* |to& e( ThUtUi ^ to % Qoveriw meat it would bo scvero on many ratepayers.

COST OF LIVING. TRUSTS AND MONOPOLIES. (CONTRIBUTED.) [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 May 1914

COST OF LIVING TRUSTS AND MONOPOLIES. (CONTRIBUTED.) Whilst- members of the Houso of Representatives have been talking, long and loosely, of many things, householders have been concentrating their attention on one-the increased' cost of living. Mr ICnibbs, the Com monwealth Statist,. tells us that the first three months of 1914- saw yet another rise in the weekly bill which the wage earner and his wifo must face, unless they are prepared to forego aomo of the comforts that thoy have been accustomed to regard as necessaries. Since that, tho grocers have come to some sort of understand-, ng which further swells tho week's Accounts; the butcher's charges are higher, and tho cold comfort offered to fathers with their quiveis full of healthy, hungry children is, that to day's prices aro low compared to those tho future will bring. As regards meat, Labor asserts that the riso is duo to the machinations of a trust. On Wednesday, Mr Groom, Minister of Customs, speaking to tho censure motion...

PITTING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 May 1914

PITTING POTATOES I In storing potatoes, so as to keep safply, a practical correspon dent explains first of all that " Pitting" is a misnomer, as the pit is actually a pyramidal heap on the surface of the ground, some 6 or 7 feet wide at the base, and sloping to the top like the < roof a house. The potatoes must not be covered directly with their i straws. The best covering is earth, but as it is convenient to know exactly where they start when taking them from the mound so as not to injure them with the spade, a thin layer of hand thrashed straw should be put on the potatoes in the form of a roof, so that the water formed by the evaporation inside, and ( any rain entering from the out- ( side, is led off along the straw without entering the mound- On top of the straw a layer of earth about 1 foot thick is put and ' beaten even and firm, so that water runs easily off to the sides In cold districts a layer of potato haulms is put on, as the under lying earth and straw is a ...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE OVAL QUESTION. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 May 1914

CORRESPONDS! THE OVAL QUESTION. (TO TIIE EDITOR.) SIR,-No doubt your -recent contri butor, "Boxing Day Sport," was quite right in his application of the proverb --"Large bodies move slowly"-to our Borough Council, or rather the Mayor, with whom the matter was left to call a public meeting. Several of our sports would like to know why His Worship is so reticent about calling the ratepayers together to get an ex pression of opinion iu regard to the site for the new sports ground. Your contributor was also nearly right again when he stated he supposed the Mayor was waiting for the Agricultural So ciety or its president to propose some ofcUor oohoroo for. amalgamation,-ao ip evident by your last report of the council meeting. Cr Richards, backed up by other fearless civic fathers, saw something of the nature of a secret caucus on the occasion1 of the official visit of the councillors to the Weir, when the Mayor and two or three others interviewed Sir Alex., ap parently with the object o...

WHEN WOMEN BEGAN SPEAK. Professor U- Elliot Smith has ' made the interpsting discovery that the 200,000 year-old woman whose skull wasfound at Piltdown was possessed of the power of speech " Although from the examina tion of this skuli it is clear that we are dealing with -the most primitive tvpe of the human family," said Professor Elliot Smith in an address at the Royal Society, " we must infer that the creature possessed the power of speech.

So Did the Dog. The defendant, wlio wa-3 charged with keeping a dog without a license, repeatedly tried to interrupt tile evi dence, but was hushed each time by .the court. Finally the clerk turned to linn: "Do you wish the court to under stand that you refuse to renew your dog license?" . "Yes, but " "We want no 'buts.' You must re new your license or be fined. You know it expired on 1st January." "Yes; and so did the dog!" An amusing story is told of a De vonshire man who invited a Socialist to visit his estate and see w-iat he had done for the villagers. As they drove about the men touch ed their hats and the boys ami girls "bobbed" and curtsied. Soon they passed a man smoking his pipe, who took no notice of the squire. "All!" said the SociiU'i'. "That's the sort of man for we. No bowing and scraping." "No," replied the squire; "that's the village idiot." And so he was.

The candidate bore the thing good liumoredly for a time, but at last he gave his questioner a hint that he was taking up valuable time by ask ing silly questions. This so enraged' the butcher that he shouted out: v "If I had the candidate in my sau sage machine I'd make mincemeat .of him." The candidate calmly retorted: "Is thy servant a dog that thou shouldst do this thing?" And nothing more was heard ol' the butcher.
