PEDESTRIAN EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 3 April 1914
I PEDESTRIAN EVENTS. This is the second year that the committee have agreed upon running unregistered events, and their efforts to cater for the man " out of the union" have met with another «uc cess. Each event on the card filled well, and the oonte»t» throughout were keen and exciting. However, the rain, at the programme wat going along smoothly, began to fall, and the officers found it necessary to strike out the High Jump, Old Buffers' Race, Senior Cadets, Bicyole Musical (Jhairs race, which was very dis appointing to those who intended taking part. The weather, combined with the short delay that occurred in fixing the hurdles, made it impos sible to run the events up to time, but under the circumstances the various sports officers performed their duties in a manner worthy of kudos. It is regrettable that protests were of such frequent occurrence, the first of which was entered at the termination of the Sprint Handicap, by 0. DanielB against the winner, Burton, for in correct pe...

CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 3 April 1914
CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. Paper is at present used for all pos sible purposes in the industries and in all possible forms. It has even been possible by means of compression to give it a degree of hardness compar able with stone, so that it can be used as building material, The latest use for paper, however, is perhaps the most peculiar. A factory is said to exist in England which is manufactur ing circular saws from paper. These paper saws are used for the manufac turing ol fine furniture, veneer and other tliin plates of wood, which must be treated especially carefully. Some time ago circular sa\^s made from drawing pajSer were shown in an English exposition. The saws were driven by an electric motor and 'produced fine boards, which could not have been made better even by the finest steel saw. The veneers made in this way are so smooth that the cabinet makers can use them without further planing.

Good Advice. V There are thousands of people wlio suffer from common ailments, sucli as Rheumatism, Indigestion, Gout, 'Mliousht' Neuralgia, Jaundice, Lumbago, Sick Headache, Sciatica, Gravel, Backache, General Debility, Blood Disorders Stone, Anaemia, Bladder Troubles who have no idea that their suffering is due to a diseased or inactive con dition of the kidneys and liver. The reason that treatment by Warner's Safe Cure has been so successful in cases of the disorders named is that Warner's Safe Cure exercises a spe cific healing and stimulating influ ence upon the kidneys and liver. Once the kidneys and liver are re stored to health and activity, the uric and 'biliary poisons, -which cause the disorder, are removed from the" system by the natural channels, and pain, due to the retention of the poi sons, ceases. A descriptive pamphlet will be sent post free by H. H. Warner and Co. Ltd., Melbourne, Vic. Warner's Safe Cure is sold by chem ists and storekeepers everywhere, both in th...
CARE OF YOUNG TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 3 April 1914
CARE OF YOUNG TREES. The care of the young trees at this season of the year is one of the mcst important of orchard operations. Many trees have been planted out dur ing the past season. Whatever care and attention are given to the young trees will be amply repaid to the grower in after years, owing to the vigor, sturdiness, and other Qualities i thus imparted to them. It id a mis- | take to plant a young orchard, and, after cutting back the trees, to leave Ihem practically to their own devices, other than following the usual meth ods of soil cultivation. The trees, after the early summer cultivation and cleaning of the soil, should be mulched with straw, grass; or leafage of some description. This mulching should not be crowded round the stem, its object being main ly to create moist ana cool soil con ditions, and to encourage a free root system. The mulch material should be occasionally stirred, and no weed or grass growth should be permitted to accumulate amongst it. "Where mulchi...
ABOUT THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 3 April 1914
ABOUT THE HORSE. ' The .Arabian National Stud Book, .Vol.' 1, Jias been published in Amer ica, and Sir Walter Gilibey has writ ten the preface, in which he states that up to the present time more than 4000 distinctworks,' in various lan guages;'' have been devoted to the horse, and among these are nearly ninety in Arabic and Persian, which are specially devoted to the Arah breed. The history of the horse shows that there have been two distinct types in Britain since the time of Julius Caesar. This breed of horse was the anxious care of Parliament from a date prior to the time of King John; and it is noted that the weight a riding horse of this type had to bear, With its mail-clad rider and the plate armor .with wliich it was protected, might be upwards of 4cwt., or 32 stone.
JOHN MADDEN. BARONET. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 3 April 1914
JOHN MADDEN. BARONET. According to town gossip our popu lar Chief Justice and Lieutenant-Go vernor, who in leaving for London to day, is likely to have offered to him ancestral honors while he is in Eng land. No one will grudge the addi tional distiuotion to His Honor if it be a distinction, but, so far, purely Victorian baronets have proved rather a woolly lot. I do not in this re mark refer to two or three quiet citizens who have, while residents of Victoria, become heirs to undoubted titles, but rather to a few gentlemen who flaunt their alleged baroneticies in the face of the public, though none of thejBritish authorities give these claimants a place. Then again, it cannot be said that muoh distinction has been added to the order by holders of the only distinctive Vio torian baronetcy hitherto created. Like baronets elsewhere they have been fairly decent commonplace peo ple, and the most ardent admirer of Sir John will not for a moment argue that there are any signs that his pro...
