FOR THE FARMER. CREAM GRADING. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 September 1915
I FOR THE FARMER." [ CREAM GRADiimG.. A dairy instructor in another State writes as follows upon this matter:— In quite a number of cases the farm er is not alone to blame for allowing his cream to become contaminated. His shed and dairy are so designed that, no matter how clean and careful he might be, he could not get a first class cream. Cream, when leaving the separator, is at just about the best temperature it could be for taking a taint, and, as there is such a small flow, if the atmosphere is' impure, it is really aeration to catch a taint, ra- ; ther than to get rid of one. The separator room should be a detached ] building, so designed as to have grass j on three sides, with a flower bed, if i so desired, on the fourth. It is sometimes very hard for a manager to convince a supplier that his cream is second grade, as he is perhaps doing ..all he can, and, very often, going to more trouble than is necessary to ensure first grade, but, if his conditions are against Mm, he cann...

THE VALUE OF MAGNESIA TO DYSPEPTICS. ITS ACTION EXPLAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
THE VALUE OF MAGNESIA 10 DYSPEPTICS. ITS ACTION EXPLAINED. " Of inestimable value in all forms of stomach trouble," recently remarked en eminent specialist when asked bis opin ion upon the ever-increasing use of mag nesia in cases of indigestion, dyspepsia, heartburn, flatulence, wind, etc., but, of course, it must be pure bisurated mag nesia ; this is the form invariably pre scribed by physicians who recognise that in many cases serious harm might result from the use of other forms, such as the acetates, citrates, or sulphates of mag nesia. Most chemists now stock pure bisurated magnesia in powder or tablet form, and I would advise sufferers from any form of stomach trouble to take half a-teaspoonful of the powder or two com _pre9sed tablets, in a little waiter immedi-. ately after each meal. This will instantly neutralise the excessive -acid in the stom ach and prevent fermentation of the food, thus ensuring normal digestion and freedom from discomfort and pain.

After a Year of War. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
The cover of " Life " for September, jast issued, shows as a picture of the world rent in twain by the sword of war, and across the globe runs the legend : " A year of war, August 4tb, 1914-15.'' This indicates that inside the magazine, and as its main feature, Dr. Fitchett re views the whole tremendous straggle that had, at the time of of writing, jast closed its first year. "War," says Dr. Fitchett, "has, both for nations and individuals, th^. office an aoid has for metals. It is the test of terrific searching power. It re-; veals character. And all the nations engaged in this war bare undergone a subtle, bat quite visible, change of value daring the year. If the place each holds in the moral judgment of the rest of the world on August 4th, 1915, could be assessed and registered; it would be quite different from that of August 4th, 1914." He proceeds, in masterly style, to trace the effect upon the character of each of the . nations involved, Vand!; . the •result, as far as the Br...
REDUCE FLESH WITH SALITHE LEAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
mm .RESH WITH SAUTH LEAVES. - • • .. -o Any man or woman who is troubled with & burden of excessive fat can easily reduce to any desired amount by follow ing the simple, harmless plan of eating sea leaves obtained from plants growing; in the sea off the coast of France. Natives of this part of the coast readily get the plant itself, but for the conveni ence of those not so fortunately situated,, most chemists keep them in compressed or tablet form under the chemical name of salith leaves, and if taken under the simple directions that accompany them, will invariably reduce flesh at the rate of two or three pounds a week, and at the same time greatly improve the general health. It is interesting to note that when salith leaves are used the skin re mains firm without any tendency to bs* come flabby or wrinkled. v s
WORK AS A MEDICINE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
WORK AS A MEDICINE. One of the most notable things among the unemployed is the rapid ity with which they age. The more delicatAly adjusted a piece of machin ery is, the quicker it rusts and goes to ruin when not running. When the mind is not healthfully employed and constantly exercised it ruins itself very quickly. There are many 'n stances in history where great men, when deprived of liberty, when their employment was taken away from them, very quickly went to pieces. They were unable to sustain the shock. Statistics show that great mind-workers are as a rule long lived. Activity is conducive to lon gevity. There is nothing like having plenty of work: something to look forward to constantly; something to plan for, to live for. There is noth ing more fatal to growth and normal living than the monotony which comes from mental inaction. There is nothing more fatal to growth tha>u stagnation.
PADDY REARDON'S MATE. FIGHT AT GABA TEPE. ENDING A COMRADE'S AGONY. Short Shrift for Bogus Officer. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
PADDY REARDON'S MATE. FIGHT AT GABA TEPE. ENDING A COMRADE'S AGONY. Short Shrift for Bogus Officer. Queer things happen in war strange and wonderful little incidents that you only hear about when the returned soldiers have filled their pipes and settled down to chat and "swop" experiences. They are not mentioned in official despatches, foi these have to describe a vast .pano rama of movement and space, and cannot deal with isolated incidents that are infinitesimal in their, ^ffect on the whole battle and are often only known to the few men concern ed. The author of the following article has been listening to the; talk of Australian soldiers back from the Dardanelles, and what he writes should be read in connection with. Sir Ian Hamilton's great despatch detail ing the achievements of the overseas soldiers at Gaba Tepe. I had been told that "school was in," and knew I had only to sit and listen. About a score of convalescent Australians back from Gaba Tepe were already sitting and li...
A NIGERIAN LEGEND. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
A NIGERIAN LEGEND. It is indisputable that Ibibios oc cupy a low rung on the ladder of-'cul ture, and are perhaps as brutal and bloodthirsty as any people through out the Dark Continent (writes Doro thy Amawry Talbot in an article in "Harper's Magazine" entitled "Among the Ibibios of Southern Nigeria"). The Ibibios have preserved many le gends, among which the following is by no means the least interesting:— There was once a man named Eka Ete, who had three sons and a daugh ter. One morning, very early, when ths Mimbo people were going towards their grove to collect palm-wine, they saw four pythons hurriedly crossing the road. The first man ran back to his house to fetch a weapon. On returning he found that the py thons had gone only a little way into the bush. He, therefore, followed the tracks and soon overtook them. At once he lifted his gun and was about to fire when the 'biggest snake raised his head from the ground and cried with a man's voice: "Do not kill us! We are the chil...

THE WORLD'S FAIR. SOME OF THE ATTRACTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
THE WORLD'S FAIR. SOME OF THE ATTRACTIONS. There are 250 shows in Joy Lane at the 'Frisco Fair. The biggest show man is E. W. MacConnell, a dollar merchant from Chicago, who has in vested £250,000 in Exhibition side shows alone. One of his speiialties is a representation of "The Creation," the story and parable of the beginning of things told not in cold type but in elaborate scenic sequence. Another is "The Evolution of the Dread nought," which winds up with a bet- j ter mock battle at sea thai Von Tir pitz and his great High Sea Fleet can offer. To Americans the slow would not be complete without 'The Battle of Gettysburg," told in picture form. Other MacConnell attractions are the Eden Musee, wax figures of his toric personages; the Jester's Palace, Captain, a horse with almost human brain, Pharoah's Daughter, a beautiful illusion, the Samoan Village and the Joy Wheel. Another big side-show is "The Sub marines." Here the passenger, com fortably seated in a submarine, is given a t...
THE HOME CIRCLE. SELECTED RECIPES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
I THE HOME CIRCLE. j SELECTED RECIPES. Baked Sausage. — Mix with the sausage a liberal amount of bread crumbs, a chopped, onion, and a very little ground cloves. Put in a deep baking-dish with strips of fresh pork about two inches long laid an inch apart, and bake for four hours in a moderate oven. To serve—Cut in crosswise slices when cold, arrange on a platter or large plate, and surround with baked sour apples from which the cores were removed with an apple corer before baking. Custard with Tripe.—Cut into strips one pound of well-cooked tripe, and put a layer in a buttered piedish. Now put a layer of breadcrumbs on the tripe, then more tripe—a slight sea soning of salt and pepper between each layer—and more crumbs. Pour over all a custard made with two beaten eggs and half a pint of milk, and put a few small dots of butter on the top. Bake in the oven till a golden brown. Wholemeal Sultana Pudding.—Into one pound of wholemeal rub a quarter of a pound of margarine, add half a pou...
WOMEN PEARL DIVERS. They Are Taught to Swim While Babies. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
WOMEN PEARL DIVERS. They Are Taught to Swim While Babies. In Japan, where pearl fishing is an important industry, nine-tenths of the pearl clivers are women. Tiny girls, mere babies, are taught by their moth ers to swim, and later to dive; the seashore is their playground, and at thirteen or fourteen, when they leave school, they are usually ready to be gin diving in earnest. A good mother superintends her daughter's exercises as faithfully as any good Englishwo man instructs her daughter in domes tic tasks. A girl does not reach her highest point of efficiency until she is about 25 years old. She works from eight to ten hours a day, with only two holi days a month, diving in from fifteen to forty-five feet of water. January -rid February are too cold for all-day work, but even then she often spends from one to five hours daily on and under the water. She wearB a special dress of white cotton bloomers and short skirt, her hair is twisted into a tight knot with a cloth wound through ...
SOLDIERS' OFFENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
SOLDIERS' OFFENCES. There are more than a dozen dif ferent offences for which a soldier may be sentenced to death while on active service. The first on the list of death offen ces applies to a commanding officer and reads, "Shamefully delivering up a garrison when in command of troops, without due necessity—pun ishment, death." A soldier can be shot for throwing away his rifle -or sword in the pres ence of the enemy, for cowardice, or for leaving his commanding officer in order to plunder. If he forces his way past a sentry on active service he may be sentenced to death, or for assaulting anyone bringing up provi sions for the troops. Soldiers are ex pressly forbidden while on active ser vice to commit any offence against a resident of the country in which he is fighting under pain of death, nor may he break into any house in search of plunder, or discharge his rifle intentionally to create a false alarm on the march. A soldier while acting as sentry who is found sleeping at his pos...

An Affair of State. Urbao: How are things out your way? Suburban: Very critical!. Our cook broke off all diplomatic relations this morning and demanded her pass ports ! The young couple had just moved into a new house, and they stood surveying the situation. "I wish," said she, "that this car pet -was velvet." "I don't," responded the husband unfeelingly. "I wish it was down."
Sensitive. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
Sensitive. "So the lady doctor jilted Bob?" "Yes. He called her a dear little duck, and she thought he meant to insinuate that she was a quack." "I understand the Frasers are hav- ' ing trouble," remarked the spinster. "Some people take her part, and ! others side with him." j "And, I suppose," growled the j bachelor, "there are a few eccentric people who mind their own busi ness?"

PUBLISHED EVERY BATHED AY. Printed and published by Lionel Sparrow, sots Proprietor, nt the office of the "Grenville Standard" newspaper, Clyde street, Linton, la the State of Vlotoria. Begiatered at the General Post Office, Melbourne, for transmission as a newspaper. SATURDAY, SEPT. 18, 1915. The formation of the proposed Univer sal Service League will doubtless do much to bring home to Australians the seriousness of the present crisis. Ia a manifesto issued by the pioneers of the League it is pointed out that the exis tence of the British Empire and all that it stands for, to its own citizens and the world at large, is in danger ; and that if the Empire should fall, the rights -and liberty which, to a British community, are as necessary and natural a3 the air they breathe, will fall with it. Such a statement is alone sufficient to make every true citizen drop all other business and concentrate upon one question only —••'How can I help to save the Em pire?" Australia has done compa...
