POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 18 October 1924
POULTRY NOTES. By "Tight Feather." The advice, "Don't buy a pig in a poke," cannot be carried out by the man who buys eggs. No one can tell (1) whether they will hatch, or (2) what they will hatch. Mary had a little hen That cackled loud and clear, But never laid an egg when, In winter, eggs were dear. With careful attention to every de-. tail in the poultry yard We may hope for much better results and better re turn§ for the labour expended than stated in the foregoing lines. There is always plenty to do when ci ickens are about, for no sooner do they get fed round than they need another meal almost at once. It is not enough to give youngsters a bi'g lot of food and then think they will not want any attention for some time. The best way with chickens is to see that they have little and often, and then see that they have a period of warmth and rest in between times. They need exercise to make muscle and constitution, but they also want rest if they are to grow fast. Pro viding young...
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 18 October 1924
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. When cooking turnips add a tea. spoonful of white sugar to the wateo,, This greatly improves their flavour. To cut butter in small squares for the table, use a coarse, wet thread, as this leaves no ragged edges Grated carrot is excellent for add ing to suet puddings in place of eggs. One medium-sized carrot will take the place of two eggs. When preparing a mustard plastr-r, use the white of an egg instead of water; the plaster will not blister thr skin. Silver sand. mixed with an euald quantity of common salt makes: a splendid scouring mlxtuie, and ;:ii save the soap generally se(l for scrubbing.

PALPITATION OF THE HEART. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 25 October 1924
PALPITATION OF THE HEART. A person in perfect health is no. conscious of the beating of his heart, and, therefore, an attack of so-called palpitation often causes great alarm. Of course, the heart palpitates inces santly; we should die if it did not perform that function, but "palpita tion" is the word that has been chos en to express an increase of the beat ing sufficient to bring it to our no tice. The first attack of the kind generally sends the sufferer in great alarm to the physician, and that is fortunate, for a proper examination is desirable, and often helpful, ' he trouble may prove to be serios, al though that is not likely, and when it is not the doctor can, by explain ing the condition, save the patient much unnecessary apprehension. Pal pitation of the heart is usually of ner vous origin. The people who suffer from it are of the nervous tempera ment, and the attacks generally ap pear at critical times in life's journey, or when the sufferer is weakened by illness, or de...
HONEY AS A HEALTH FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 25 October 1924
HONEY AS A HEALTH FOOD. Honey, writes a medical man, is a food and a medicament of the first rank. It does not irritate the stom ach and passes through rapidly, for It is not digested by that organ, but rather by the intoetines, as are all sugars. Thanks to tih properties in it, it Is easily assimilated by the in testines withoui overloadling them for any undue length of time, as is the case with certain ripe fruit. Besides, it is very nutrilious, and nearly every particle of its own weight is asslini lat ed. loney is a medicament which can be usled for varouls purposes. Dyspeptics whose real treatment con sliss in a strict food regimen should use it. as dessert In place of cakes, fruits, and nuts, such as almonds. Honey has still one more advantage, which is that it acts as a mild laxa tive, and that is a valuable property, for habiltual constipation give; rise to many disorders. Without doubt it Is to this double action that honey owes its reputation. As a narcotic it may be recom...
HEALTH IN THE HOME. A COMMON MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 25 October 1924
HEALTH IN TIlE HOME. A COMMON MISTAKXi1. A common mistake, and one tbat is quite excusablc, is that nso many people between the ages of forty and fifty feeling the need of reading glasses either refuse to wear them or continue putting it off. There is no greater mistake than the common saying that "so-and-so" has such strong eyes, lived to be eighty, and never used glasses to read. It is a physiological fact that at about the age of forty-five years the crystalline lens loses some of its elasticity; it loses more as age advances, so that even under accommodation it can not become convex as it did before, consequently this convexity (needed for reading) must be supplied arti ficially by means of spectacles.

EYES THAT TWINKLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 25 October 1924
EYES THLATT VWI.NKLLI. There is no surer give-away of age or indicator of ill-health than the eye. It has been called "the window of the soul"; it might more truly be called the barometer of the body and its habits. Many a woman who has a soul above reproach has eyes that show her body to be all wrong. If one is fatigued, is over-fond of eat ing, or is over-strained the eye will be dull, heavy, and lifeless. When the eye is not bright and clear, especially if it looks puffy, keep a sharp watch for your health. It may be only biliousness, but, what ever the cause, it is time to discover it. This Is a far wiser plan than to take anything to keep the eyes rlight. There are some women as foolish as to put drops in the eyes to give them lustre. Why tamper with our most precious possession? Never use anything in the eyes with out consulting an oculist; it is not safe to take risks with a delicate or gan. If nothing else deters, the fear of glasses should teach sense. Should the eyes feel ...

During the course of her introduc tory remarks the captain thanked one and all who had assisted to make the self-denial appeal the splendid success it was. She mentioned that the corps target was £112, but the appeal ha...
EXASPERATING LOVERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 25 October 1924
EXASPERATING LOVERS. Even the nicost of sweethearts can be exasperating at times. It is Just because he is a man, you see, and so perforce dense as regards some things that every girl understands by intuition. For instance, he slmply cannot realise that a girl dresses for others beside himself. "Come just as you are," he will say, and, if taken at his word, will show marked disap pointment. Yet if he is kept wait ing while she changes her frock, he will make foolish remarks on the "vanity of girls." Also, he usually assumes that his girl acquaintances are sure to prove the bosom friends of his sweetheart, whereas the reverse is generally the case--for obvious reasons. And a mere hint to this effect produces a superior reflection on feminine jeal ousyl As for his own desire to keep a sultan-like supervision over the mas culine acquaintanceships of his lady love---well, that, too, is an exasperat ing peculiarity which she finds try ng at times. Taken, altogether, however, he is her be...

MATTERS FEMININE. DO YOU WANT TO BE LIKED. Then-- Never be Inquisitive about the pri vate affairs of oven your dearest friends. Never repeat ill-natured gossip, os* pecially to the subject of it.

AN APPEAL [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 25 October 1924
AN APPEAL As a result of the miotor accident at the corner of Hinmpshire and I3allarat roads, a workman rdmed George Pitt Iad his ankle broken in two places, and it may be six months before he will have regained the full use of his injured limb. As Mr. Pitt's means of livelihood are denied him for the time being, an efforL is being made to ameliorate his serious finan cial position. Cr. W. Dempster, of Blraybrook, and lMr. N. Leckie, of Maidstone, have interested them selves in an effort to raise funds for the injured man, and any contribu tions forwarded to this office will be acknowledged through the press.

Although the blocks are very nicely situated the high price realised is considered an evidence of advancing values i.n Sun shine residential ...
