THE BANANA, A MOST NOURISHINC FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 7 March 1914

THE BANANA, A MOST NOURISH' INC FRUIT. A groat deal !mb been said about tho indigostibility of tho banana. For many yours it has boon admitted that tho banana contains much nutriment, but many physician# lmvo added tho only trouble with thorn is that thoy do not digost rondily. This has provod to bo a fallacy. Ex periments of luto years, ami only rocontly comploted, show that tho ban ana ia not only a most nourishing fruit, but is probably tho most oasily digest ed of any fruit. This always means tho banana thai is porfeetly ripe. Tho Imnnmt with tbo brilliant, unspockod yollow skin will not digest quito so oasily, althougli it is not dangerous to oat. Tho ripo banana has a darkor, muddior yollow, with black spots upon tho skin. Dried bananas do not digost quito as readily as tho ripe, fresh fruit, although thoy form a valuablo food product, oithor driod whole and soaked in water before oating or in flour cookod in various forms.

FOOTWEAR AND THE FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 7 March 1914

FOOTWEAR AND THE FEET. The wearing of improper footwear is due as much to ignorance as to vanity. If tho laity understood that many serious and crippling affections followed its use, it would perhaps load to a much-needed reform. Tho feet of adults are much less injured by com pression than tho more plastic ones of children, and it is during childhood that tho foundation is laid for future disabl ing deformity. It is usually difficult to induce adults to dross in any way contrary to prevailing fashion; but most parents are quite susceptible to instruction leading to tho welfare of fchoir children. It is especially in this direction that the physician can ac complish much good by judicious coun sel.

OUR FRUIT INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 10 March 1914

OUR FRUIT INDUSTRY One of the most important factors in the preparation of fruit for export (says Mr J. O. Turner, Chief Horti cultural Officer), is that of reliable and corrcct parking, It is generally conceded that the man who puts up his fiuit in the most up-lo-dato man ner may til'Miys rely on good returns for his prodnco Not only this, the carcful attention devoted to propel' packing will be found to pay host in the expedition of transit from tho orchard to the ship's sida. It is, to the uninitiated grower, an eaay raa' er to unwittingly place himself in the positfon of having to expliin aulty marking or deficient packing. The inspectois appointed under the Acts governing the fruit industry usually find that the amateur ship per makes occasional errors that require attention. This means trouble and delay to all concerned. It is therefore necessary to bring be fore those growets who may be un aware of the law on tho matter the piineipal points to bu observed in putting up their ...
