BROKEN COLLAR-BONE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 22 May 1914
BROKEN COLLAR-BONE. A very comnmon accident, particularly amolllnllg prsons wIo go in largely lo' ath!ctcis is - broken oollar-hone; the injury being easily caused by a tall or bludden jerk, such as occur frequeniitly when c 1,ing, running, or tenns-pJay ing. The cJilar-boncs are the two boucs wh]lich go Irotn tlhe breastbone or sternum to the shoulders, antd are very liable to injury, a ball on lthu elbow or shoulder being enough to f'racture themu. Fortunately, the bones rejoin with eqlal ease, asld a fractulo of tlloln rarely causes any perllanleilt inconvelll nce.

FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 22 May 1914
FOOTBALL Tile football season was opened under favorable conditions on Saturday. The weather was good, although rain threatened at one time, and the ground was in perfect order. The Municipal Band played in Main street and on the ground during the afternoon and helped to attract as well as to enliven the very respectable crowd that assemb!ed to see conclusions tried between the Orbost and Newmerella teams. Both clubs were fitted out in their new uniforms and made a very good display. R. McHenry officiated as central umpire and gave general satisfaction. Orbost missed a good man in Nixon, who was unable to attend, but managed to secure a win, after a very evenly-contested game, by 45 points (5.15) to 44 (6.8). Blaikie, a new Orbost player, was the best man on the ground. Only one thing interfered with the afternoon's enjyment, and that was due to one or two barrackers, who, followed by a horde of boys, encroached on the oval and prevented the spectators from see ing a great part of t...

AIR GAS. THE FUTURE LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 22 May 1914
AIR: GAS. THE FUTURE LIGHT. Air Gas lighting has beooie so generally known and recognised as the tuturo method of lighting that it is scarcely necessary To .tat.e tlla.t a well miado and scienticliaily constructed system provides a better qualit. oi light, at considerably less .expOnse, tlhan it fan be had from anyl othe, medium. The low cost of nlailltnance over kerosone and acetylene is, of course, owing to tli fact that with air gas anl incandescent nlantlo is brought into use, whereby 96 per celt. of air is ut. lised, and only 4 per cent. of gas. With keroseno and acetylene . ever' unit of light produced consuiiais the pure keroseno or gas, and practically no air. Acetylene was certainly an improve mlent on kerosene in the way of con velliencl, and at the salme tilla a11 trille lower in c&lt;os' of maintenance.

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 22 May 1914
MELBOURNE LETT/E . (From Our Special Correspondont). cWsth lheu fa'nuro of efforts to irease by immigration the population ,f Australia to something hlke what Is oeeded, it should be natural to expect that more attention be given to con serve the home-grown product. In - spite ch periodical disclosures in con nection with infant mortality, calculat ed to awaken the indignation and com passion of the most callously indifferent citizen, there is still a waste of valu able child lifo that is worso than cri-ni nal. The ignorance and neglect which loses for the State the lives of many infants born under the conventional conditions, is deplorable. There is no reason at all why mothers, young or otherwise, should not be acquaint-en with what is required to raise healthy children. Eduoation upon the rigct lines is readily enough obtainable. Le t such is the indifference, or laziness, or general lack of initiative, that hun dreds of infants which have the right to live and which are needed l...
