SPECIAL SALE AT BAIRNSDALE Messrs A. Macarthur and Co. report: --We held our usual monthly special cattle sale at our Bairnsdale yards on 22nd May, when we submitted a big yarding of cattle to one of the largest attendances of buyers we have ever habed, coming from all parts of the State. South Gippsland, where the season is exceptionally good, was represented by most of the leading fatteners, who oper ated freely, and bought the majority of the yarding. The cattle right through were good, the bullocks and cows being particularly so; they showed quality, size, age and condition, that would be hard to equal for their number. This reflects great credit on the breeders, who appreciated the manner in which the buyers admired and competed for their stock. The sale wa's brisk from start to finish, evey lot being eo!d at a good rise in values from low rates. Follow ing were the sales :-97 bullocks, Ham ilton Reed, Goongerah station, 4 and 5 years old, well grown, nice q-tality, and in good...

The Danger of Worms [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
The anger o orm1s Stomach and Intestinal Worms are one of the most common complaiuts throughout Australasia. Indigestion is a primary cause, or they may be produced by Constipation, or through the eating of tainted food or food improperly cooked. There is also the possibility of their introduction into the system in the form of cysts or germs in fruit and meat so that all classes of the community, ir'iespect. ive of age, are liable to this conm plaint. It is not alone the irritation and atnoyance caused by these para sitical animals that infest the stoum ach and bowels, but thb" more seri ous consequences whic, ?ollo .v that must be kept in view. From the highly organised and sensitive parts which they occupy, Worms give rise to great constitutional derangements, and produce a variety of symptoms, more particularly affecting the stom ach and head. Many cases of Con vulsions, Epilepsy, Hysteria; St. Vi tus' Dance, Melancholia, Nervous Diseases, and even Insanity, have ?stilted front ...
FRICTION AVOIDED [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
FRICTIO( 0 AVOIDED A very ingenious method of over comning the friction of intermeshing gears has recently been devised. The gear teeth are elrotronmagnetically hold in engagement, without actually con tacting. The teeth of the driving gear are magndtised by means of suitable coils, while the teeth of the driven gear serve in pairs as armatures for the magnetised toeeth. Of course such an arrangement would hardly be suit able for slow, heavy work, because the cost of current would be greater tbha 1that of lubricating oil and the loss due to friction, but for light, high-speed work the electro-magnetic engagement would undoubtedly prove very advan tageousa.
AMERICAN SHEEP BREEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
AMERICAN SHEEP BREEDS. The "American Sheep Breeder and Wool Grower," the organ of the sheep breeders in the United States, gives an interesting account of the sheep shown at the recent International Live Stock Exposition at Chicago. The exhibits of each breed are arranged in breeding and fat classes, and the arrangement is very different from that in our own show clicalogues. The breeding classes were for ramn two years and over, and one year and under two; ram lamb under one year; ewe one year and under two; ewe lamb under one year; flock of rams, one year and over, twc yearling ewes and two ewe lambs; and mour lambs of either sex by one sire. The fa.t classes were for each breed: WVetlher one year and under two, we tlhbr lamb, and pen of five wether lambs. Championships were awarded for both rams and ewes, and in some breeds for wethers. zIn several of the breeds sheep imported from England or their progeny scoredl the chief wins. The general "get up" of the sheep shown indicates ...
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. HOW TO PRESERVE BONES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTSJ HOW TO PIRESERVE BONES. Ribls of beef and other joints are frequently boned by the butcher and the bones sent with thle meat. They should at one' be examined, and any bits the least tainted lchoppd off and thrown away.. The bones should then bo.put into the oven and baked slowly till dry. ,Theey will then keep good for several days, and, when wanted for soup, should be. soaked for half an hour in cold watei- before beginning to cook them. TO KEEP RAW MEAT SWEET. iRun a little vinegar over' a large dish, then place two pieoas of stick across, lay the joint on the'sticlks, and the meat will keep quite fresh during the hottest weathei'.": 'It will also prevent flies attacking it,:since . they dislike the smell? of vinegar. - Store in a cool pantry. : TO PREVENT MILK EFROM BURN ING':. .:: When iimilk has to' be .boiled and there is a fear of`itsi buritinig a good plan is to boil ,apidly - little wat er just enough to coveri.the bottom, of the pan-'before' puttinigin thl...
MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
'MELBOURNE LETTER (From Our Special Correspondent). Canon Hughes should be in demand as the conductor-not of a stadium for prize fights, but of special missions. He has gained the right kind of fame (it would hardly be nice to call it notor iety) that goes to draw the crowds, and that is what is needed nowadays. \Vhon the rows upon rows of empty pews in metropolitan churches are seen one can understand why church author ities in other countri-s are driven by the same lack of congregations, to re sort to all sorts of methods to attract the people. It would scorn that if some curches here are to ba kept open at all, some similar move in the way of investing the services with elements - conducive to "popularity" must be re sorted to. It is not a pleasant fact. but is none the less true With this in view-the devising of means to draw the corwds who, once brought within the sacred precincts to be am used may remain to pray-there are infinite possibilities in the punch of Canon ]Hughes, w...

It iss' good :practice:. to pile. all coarse manures, sods, weeds, or any rubbish available for the pur pose, ni big, ifiat heaps to ferment and rot before being applied to the garden soil. If desired, chemical - manures, such as superphosphate, bone-dust, kai nit, or muriate otpotash, may be add ed to make the compost the .richer'.

MALLACOOTA DIFFICULTIES DELEGATE ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
MALLACOOTA DIFFICUL TIES I DELEGATAE ARGUS. Great inconvenience appears to be experienced by the residents of Malla coota and surroundings judging by the comments one-hears about town almost daily since the hitherto shipping service to that port was stopped some weeks ago owing to the owner of the vessel trading there not being a certificated master. For want of bridges over the Genoa and Kiah Rivers it is almost impossible at times for the two or three hundred residents living there to get a proper supply of foodstuffs by land. As there is not enough trading to warrant the employment of a master mariner taking charge of the boat engaged in conveying goods to Mallacoota, the people there have become practically iso lated by the innovation, and, therefore, are living in a state of despondency in consequence of their inability to even get supplies by carriers, for the road is not a regular one for teamsters either from Gippeland or Eden. Residents are of the opinion that they are hars...

OUR DEBT TO THE MOSLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
OUR DEBT TO THE MOSLEMS. Startling as it may seem, the intel lectual salvation of Modern Europe from the b?enumbing inilluence of the Middle Ages was in a large measure due to the Arabs. As early as the days of Harun-al-Raschid, who was a contemporary of Charlemagne, efforts ,ore made by that Caliph to make science and literature the permanent denizens .of his empire. These efforts were still fufuher carried under the brilliant rule of his son and successor, Al Mamun, Whose caliphate has justly been called thy Augustan Age of islam. Learned mesn were invited from many different countries and iremunerated for their labours' with princely munifi cence; and the works of the best Greek, Syriani Persian,. and Indian writers werd *t ¶anslated into Arabic and spread over the entire Mahomnedan world. In Si amin, the University of Cordova rivall d the literary fame of Baghdad, and Iahomedan writers ap peared everywltero as the preservers and distributors of knowledge. In the long, nightiof M...
