Thistle Question. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 May 1914
Thistle [Question. At a meeting of the Lexton Shire Council, on Monday, 11th inst., a letter was received from the Talbot Shire, stating that in view of the probability of legislation being shortly proposed to render the enforcement of the Thistle Act compulsory on ail shires, the council considered that many thistles were not noxious weeds, but good fodder for stock and a pro tection to the grass from frosts, winds, etc. An expression of opinion of the Lexton shire, was asked as to the ad visability of leaving the enforcement of the Act to the option of the coun cils, whose experience renders them more likely to be the best judges. After discussion, Cr Coutts moved that they suppoit the proposal, and ask Talbot shire to convene a confer ence on the question, with a view of sending a strong deputation to the Minister. Cr Yates seconded tiie motion, and suggested that the Talbot council con vene the conference for the same week as the farmers' coniorence at-Mary borough, in July. The...

Why Acid Stomachs are Dangerous. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 May 1914
Why Acid Stomachs are Dangerous. SCIENTIFIC REPORTS, May: Acid in the stomach is dangerous and frequently fatal, because acid from its corrosive nature has a natural ten. dency to destroy the mucous lining of the stomach itself. No one inten tionally swallows hydrochloric acid, but it is often present in large quantities as ths result of food fermentation iu the stomach resulting from the chemi cal action, which so frequently follows the eating of the daintiest and most tasty foods or the indulgence in any form of alcoholic stimulants, including beer, wine, liqueurs, etc. This fer mentation causes pain, uneasiness and discomfort because ot the acid which burns like a red-hot iron, and the for mation of gas which distends the stomach, causing shortness of breath and palpitation of the heart. The trouble being entirely duo to the un natural condition of storpach contents, und not in any way to the fault of the stomach Iteelf, physicians-have adop ted with marvellous success the plan o...

The Taxi Habit. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 May 1914
, The Taxi .Habit. Man is the creature of habit, especially when it comes to riding in; taxis. Life is nowadays so full" of hurry and jostle, says "..The. Medical Press and, Cireu lar," that rapid locomotion aloho enables the average townsman to keep pace with its myriad activi ties. To tbe busy citizen, whether on pleasure or on business bent, the taxi comes as a boon and a bless ing, by the help, of which he may fulfil an ever-increasing crowd of engagements. What matters it to him that he is thereby hasten ing on the process of evolution that is developing the brainy side of man at the expense of his body? For every increased facility of meohanioal locomotion means a corresponding deorease of musou Jar exertion. In a word, man is more or leas within sight of the time when he will to a great extent abandon the use of bis lower limbs, which, later, will atrophy and dwindle into mere relics of the handsome members they now are. This pic ture is not altogether fanciful, for some of t...
Keeping Poor Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 May 1914
Keeping Poor Cows. Only a rich man can afford to .eep poor cows- Sometimes it is . aid that a man, unless be is well ff( cannot afford to own good OWB. This is wrong- If he can ufford to own any he can afford .0 own the best. The man who . efuses to spend the money neces nary to purchase a good cow, and finds enough to get hold of a -eoond rate one, must work double lime to get any profit, and wait years before he oan breed up to a higher standard. 1 he fact should be realised at the beginning that it is better to put all the money in half a dozen good cows than in a dozen interior ones. The profits ot dairying depend first upon the quality of the cows, and second upou the system of raising -feed and giving, it . to the animals, - It has -been -proved that good, not fancy bred, cows have made £14 profit per year net for their owners, after the cost of feed had been deducted and all other charges. If one good cow will make that profit, a herd of 20 or 30 should net a fairly goed inco...

Mr William O'Brien, vice-president o£ the Dublin Trades Council, stated at the Dublin housing inquiry that a great number of workers could not pay economic rents. Where rent was ; paid under present conditions the | money given to the landlords should j go for food and clothing. Instead of | building on the outskirts of the city , and securing cheap fares, the corpora-! tion preferred to buy slum property at. £10,000 an acre, in order to enrich slum owners.

LIME FOR THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914
. LIME FOR THE SOIL. The nature of the lime used de pends upon the purpose for which it is required. Lime Jb applied to the soil ? for the following objects:-(a) To lighten heavy clays; (b) to sweet en -sour soils; . (c) to Bupply plant i.ood. . In the first... case, either unslackad lime (powdered quicklime), or quite freshly slacked lime is the most ef fective, the action on-'the clay being "both of a mechanical ' End chemical nature, breaking up the colloidal clay particles when the lime is stacked in contact with the clay. Slacked lime is much less effective, as the action is only a mechanical one, as there is no combination of the lime with the siiicateB of the clay.
VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914
VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." Large crops are not always profit able crops, and the finest looking ani mal dgea not always give the largest net return. For generations we have been taught ami urged to grow bigger crops, unmindful of the relation of in creased cost to Increased production. The value of increased production al ways depends upon, whether or not It is .economically secured, i.e., upon whether the margin of profit an acre is increased or not. Another important factor always to be kept in mind is the relation which any part of the farm enterprise bears to the whole. A crop judged by It self might be profitable and yet the system might be unprofitable. For example, timothy hny might prove a. -.good crop in aijy. one year, or even two or three years, but" eventually the yield must decline, because a system of farming with this crop alone would not be likely to maintain fer tility, so-that the syBtem could not be called profitable. On the other hand, Clover niight not prove to ...
TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914
TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. Hundreds of calves dte every year from one cause or another, and ver.v oiten the farmer is at a loss to know the cause of death. Practical experi ence counts all the time. Mr. J. A. Isird, of Duranbox, Tweed River, iN.S.W., is a dairy farmer who, when a calf dies, wants to know the reason why. He had some calves die. He opened the stomach of one and found a hard masB' of hair like a piece of feft and about the size of a tennis ball, which had collected through the calves suokin'g the ears o£ each oth er at feeding time, which is a com mon practice among young calves. Mr. Bird tried many means ol prevention, and finds that a small quantity of fresh cow manure mixed with separ ated milk, and allowed to stand in the sun all day before being rubbed on the ears and bellies of the calves at feeding time completely breaks the bad habit.
GREEN MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914
GREEN MANURING. The object of green manuring is to furnish a supply of organic matter, and to collect nitrogen from the air. To get the best results from green manuring, it is necessary in the first place to supplement it by the appli cation of fertilisers. The necessity for the addition of nitrogen is depend ent upon the success of the green crop and on the requirements of the following crops. For instance, if the green crop has grown well, potatoes and cereals on good or medium soil should not require the help of any additional artificial nitrogen. Follow ing a poor green crop, it may be ad visable to give either potatoes or cer eals, especially oats, the benefit of a top-dressing of lcwt. nitrate of soda. Mangels following a green crop should have a light dressing of nitrate of soda. A Bmall dressing of superphos phate is advisable to increase the effect of the green manuring. For roots and potatoes the soil should re ceive l%cwt. to 2cwt. per acre; cer eals a little leBS, say, l...

THE EDUCATION PROBLEM. The Australian Catholic Federation is issuing a lentlet dealing with tlio system of State Education in Victoria, and is also arranging for public meet ings being hold throughout tlio im portant contres of the State, in order lhat the Catholic educational claims may be placed before tlio general public.

CHAPTER XII. Mrs. Beilairs very naturally Bpent tv most uncomfortable evening. It is true that she was able to write a re gistered letter to Ralph and to send ->f£ the eight hundred pounds, consist ing of Isaac Mordecai's dirty notes. She took it herself to the post-oflice, and was glad to find that she was in 1 ime to catch the Australian mail. For the present she could do no more for her darling. Could. she ever do anything more for him again? She felt not. Her head ached, her cheeks were flushed and, going into her bed room, she desired her maid on no ac count to disturb lier. Then she turn ed the key in the lock, hoping very earnestly that she might get some sleep. But, alas! it w.s far from her. She was almost wild with worry aud shame, and the longer she lay on her 'oed the more terrified she grew. Mrs. Beilairs was not a bad woman, out undoubtedly she was a weak one. As she lay on her beautiful pillow, tears filled her eyes and rolled down iir-r thin cheeks. What was she t...

(Continued). .Mrs. Bellairs continued her gloomy and hopeless meditation. By-and-bye she heard Sheila fly downstairs and tlio sound of the motor-cur drivin0, away. She felt nearly mad. - Her heart thumped within her. The thought of the miserable condition of her .boy, and the contrast between him and Sheila gave her untold itgony. 1th the exception of the ser vants, she was now practically alone in the house. Her husband would not come home for several hours, and she'had plenty of time to write to her unfortunate boy. She had no money to send him. All her things were paid for by her hus band, and the few jewels that were left in the shape of rings and a dia mond pendant she dared not part w.lli, knowing that Peter would le mark their absence.

BUDDHA'S FINGERMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914
BUDDHA'S FINGERMARK8. By Wm. North. .There have been many awful floods. In India, but none quite so appalling as the one which devastated the land before the squirrel obtained his pres ent livery. It Bounds odd to date a great occurrence by so apparently tri fling a matter, yet curiously enough the flood in question is Bolely remem bered by the squirrel's change of dress. He was asleep, and so were Ills wife and family-the babies were the tini est little creatures, but he was very proud of them-when the relentless volumes of water came crashing down the valley. It uprooted the tree in which ho was living at that time, and the. tree in which he was living at that time, and the tree with Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel and their precious in fants went floating down the tide. The position was critical. If the poor, startled little squirrel had given himself up for lost and had spent the time in recalling his past sins, and in taking a fond farewell "f his dear ones, none could have blamed him. A...
