Cattle Maiming. OUTRAGE AT NORTH HUON. BULL KILLED AND MUTILATED. OTHER CATTLE BRUTALLY INJURED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
Cattle Maiming. OUTRAGE .AT NORTH HUON. BULL KILLED AND MUTILATED. OTHER CATTLE BRUTALLY IN JURED. News of a series of shocking outrages upon cattle has been received from North. Huon. For about six weeks past cattle and horses belonging to settlers of that part of the district have been brutally injured, and in some cases killed and cut to pieces. The identity of the person or persons responsible for the dastardly work is yet unknown, though it is under stood strong suspicion rests upon a cer tain resident of the locality. The maiming has been of the most ruthless character, and. apparently is the handiwork of an audacious rascal, inso much as, in at least one instance, a calf was attacked and shockingly injured in a paddock close to the residence of the owner of the animal. But for the most part the bush has been selected as the field for his bloodthirsty work. In one instance only, it appears, he was sufficiently merciful to kill the object of his brutality. This was in the case ...
DIRECTOR OF AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910

The Director has expressed a wish that as many orcliardists as possible should meet him at each of the places to be visited, as he is very anxious to confer with them on fruitgrowing and other matters of im portance to them. It is very desirable that .orchardists should avail themselves of this opportunity of meeting Mr Benson more so, because he is generally recognised as a high authority on horti cultural matters.

Fruit Inspection. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
Fruit Inspection, IT appears that the Tasmanian Government is likely to take some definite action in the direc tion of endeavoring to get the matter of fruit inspection placed on a rational basis. -At the present time it is generally conceded by all who are affected by it that it is farcical in the extreme, and requires very radi cal alteration. It has on more than one occasion be®n pointed out that it amounts to protection, in that it subjects the shippers to charges that are a duty in all but name. Agitation against the iniquitous system of dual inspec tion has arisen from time to time, and in certain quarters it ?has been misconstrued into an attempt to abolish inspection altogether. This contention is so obviously absurd and inac curate that it hardly needs re futing. Few, if any, growers have the slightest objection to inspection, provided it is carried out on rational and just lines. Indeed, the great bulk of expor ters welcome it. But it is the ridiculous methods adopted that...

MEDICAL MEM. Anaemia. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
7 ' — j ? ^ ! — 1 ? ' MEDICAL MEM. Anaemia. It is hot an unusual thing to find | that persons who have been getting run down and debilitated put off seek ing medical advice on the plea that they are 'only anaemic,' , evidently thinking that such a condition is not of very great importance and will nat urally right itself. Now, considering that anaemia is poorness of blood, and that the whole system is entirely de pendent on the blood for' its nutrition, it should be evident that to be anaemic is to be in a really serious Estate of health- -not, of course, serious from the point of view of immediate danger to life, but because impoverishment of the blood means lowering of the vital ity and lowered powers of resistance to disease. . - Simple anaemia is, as a rule, one of the most satisfactory conditions of ill health the doctor has to deal with, as under proper treatment the blood quickly returns to its normal condition of strength. It is only when, after several weeks' medical treatm...
ANTIQUITY OF CANNED FRUITS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
AnTIQUITY OF CANNED FRUITS. There are many conveniences of the present day which were denied to the ancients. Still, they enjoyed some luxuries which the people of this age deem comparative novelties. For in stance, a vast number of people sup pose tnat tne canning oi rruits, an in dustry which of late years has attain ed so vast an importance, is of recent growth; but, as a matter of fact, we ar / indebted to Pompeii for it. ? Years ago, when the excavations were just beginning, a party of Americans found in what had been the pantry of a house many jars of preserved figs. One was opened, and they were found to be fresh and good. Investigation showed that the figs had been put into jars in a heated state, an aperture being left for the steam to escape, and then sealed with wax. The hint was taken, and the next year the preserving of fruit in tins was introduced into America, the process being identical with that in vogue in Pompeii nearly twenty cen turies ago, ? i
POLITICAL TRUTHS FROM MARK TWAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
POLITICAL TRUTHS FROM MARK TWAIN. It is said that Mark Twain has made only one public, appearance as a poli tical speaker, which was during a Presidential campaign some years ago. While visiting in Elmira, New York, he made a short speech, introducing General Hawley to a Republican meet ing. 'General Hawley,' he said, 'is a member of my church in Hartford, and the author of 'Beautiful Snow.' Maybe he will deny that; but I am here only to give him a character from his last place. As a pure citizen I re spect him; as a personal friend of years, I have the warmest regard for him; as a neighbor whose garden ad joins mine, why — why, I watch him. As the author of 'Beautiful Snow' he added a new pang to winter. He is a square,' true man in honest politics, and I must say that he occupies a mighty lonesome position. So broad, so bountiful is his character that he never turned a tramp empty-handed from the door, but always gave him a letter of introduction to me. Pure, honest, incorruptible...
DOES THE MAN LOVE FIRST? [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
DOES THE MAN LOVE-FIRST? This is undoubtedly a question of great importance. Does the girl fall in love sooner than the man? In the majority of cases we should answer, 'No.' A girl makes friends more readily than a man, and she dreams a number of romantic dreams much sooner , than the man; but the actual passing of the oorderland of love is usually accom plished by him. A man often declares his love long before the girl has felt more than a passing interest in him. . Sometimes we know that the mere fact of his de votion to her produces that affection which he is so desirous of obtaining. The fact that a girl loves a man does not often provoke a like feeling in lim, but it is quite otherwise with the gentler sex. ? A girl sees a man's affec tion for her, is flattered, pities him, and finally, gives him her love. Not the best kind of love, perhaps, but that is a rare treasure.
WHAT THE CHINESE SAY ABOUT WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
WHAT THE CHINESE SAY ABOUT WOMEN. The Chinese have many trite say ings about women, among which are the following: — ? Never trust a vain' woman, for siie is first in her own eyes. Listen to the voice of an old wo man, for sorrow hath given her wis dom. Many women, like leaderless sheep, come- together for talk. Pearls come from the mouth of her who thinketli long before opening her lips.
A WOMAN SAYS: [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
A WOMAN SAYS: If I were a man I would not always consider that my opinion was final, and that it admitted no argument. If I were a man I would not ad dress my wife in tones that I would not dare use in speaking to another woman. If I were a man I shouldn't think that just because a girl had married me she had -reached the pinnacle of bliss, and I need make no effort to keep her there. If I were a man I think I should realise that the mere fact of winning a woman does not imply that one can immediately cease to woo her. Love is like everything else in this world. , It does not stand still, but grows greater or less. If a 'man is content to have it grow less, he ceases to pay court to his wife; but if he values it, he never relaxes in his at tentions.
