WHY ACID STOMACHS ARE DANGEROUS. SCIENTIFIC REPORT, May. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 26 May 1914
WHY ACID STOMACHS ARE DANGEROUS. SCIENTIFIC REI'ORT, May. Acid in the stomach Is dangerous, and frequently fatal, because acid from its corrosive nature has a natural tendency to destroy the mucous lining of the stomach it self. No one intentionally swal lows hydrochloric acid, but it is often present in large quantities, as the result of food fermentation in the stomach, resulting from the chemical action, which so fre-b quently follows the eating of the daintiest and most tasty foods or the indulgence in any form of alcoholic stimulants, indulging beer, wine, hiquers, etc. This fer mentation causes pain, uneasiness, and discomfort, because of the acid, which burns like a red hot iron, and the formation of gas, which distends the stomach, caus ing shortness of breath ,and pal pation of the heart. The trouble being entirely due to the unnatu ral condition of the stomach con tents, and not in any way to the fault of the stomach itself, physi cians have adopted with marvel lous succes...
ELECTRICITY OR GAS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 26 May 1914
ELECTRICITY OR GAS. To-day the local shire council will meet to consider the present condition ot the town gas works, which have been allowpd to fall be Iund up-to-date gas making plants. It is admitted that something will. have -to be done to the works 'or the retort bench will collapse and townspeople be left m darkness.Yet the question whether gas or elec tricity should be the future illumi nant in Traralgon has not been settled. It is a coincidence that residents of Kyneton are some what warmly discussing the same qtuestion. Kyneton.has a popula tion of 3,500, and the municipal gas works are very much behind the tintres. The local council re cently arranged a public debate' on Gas-v. Electricity.' Mr. W. Swinburne, M. Inst., M.E., put forward the arguments for gas and Mr. J. K. M'Dougall, A.M.I.E.E., presented the case for electncity. Eacf- made out a good case from his- own point.of view, but it is somewhat significint that both the local papers say that gas came off the best. ...

TRARALGON NAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 26 May 1914
TRARALGON NAMES. The Historical Society of Aus tralia is at present engaged on an investigation of the meaning and history of place nanies-which .are useC throughout the States. . Such an inquiry is interesting, and will afterwards be of great .value to future *historians. But for our selves, it may be interiesting to do the same !thing in a 'small Avay, and to eriquire;as to the various names which bave grown up in connec tion. with our town, and endea pour to find-out how they came into being, and if there is any meaning which they are intended to. convey. When and by whom the name Traralgon was given to this local ity, i have been unable to :find out, but it was certainly given at a very early period in the history of the State. The earliest spelling of the name is reported to be "Tarral gon," a slight variation of the present form, and the word itself (by those- learned in these mat ters) is said to be a native. name signifying the "river of little fishes," while the neighboring...

As history is thus built up, is may be as well to enquire what :Qvidence there is for that beliet. A careful examinhtlon of all the par ticulars reveals the fact that of 'Iuou si aiqi. aouop!a3 arwsod and that the behlief is founded' n tirely upon tradition. W\hat then 'loes tradition relate? When I first saw the grave, which was over 30 years ago,'and enquired as to its history, I was then told .quite a different story. The tradition then current was to the effect that at an early date, when land settlement first began to take place, a prospective settler...
