OATMEAL FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 28 May 1883

OATMEAL FOR CHILDREN. -4--~ Those mothers havo been improperly advised who fancy that "Oatmeal as food for young children is bad, because it is too heating." If at any time it has been found to disagree, it is on the score of being improperly or, insu:i ciently cooked. Dr. Thomas King Chambers, speaking about' oatmeal observes :-The coarsely ground oat meal is the most suitable for porridge and cakes. If imperfectly boiled, as when prepared in a hurry, orintention ally unboiled as in broso, it is extremely indigestible, and produces the most obstinate cases of pyrasis in the parts of the country where itis habitually used. But when boiled and eaten, slowly, so as to become well mixed with the saliva, it is a most wholesome, as well as most nutrituous .food. An oaten diet has bred the. Scotch farmer and the.English horse. And where will their equals be found I" Dr. J. Milner Fothergill, also in writing of the choice of food for children remarks:... " It is painful to see children at ...

THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 28 May 1883

THE ABORIGINES. The "Bega Standard" (N.S.W.) writes :-The policy of our Govern ment in dealing with the aborigines clearly is that the miserable remnant, as a blot on the community, should he allowed to wipo theseolves out as soon as they.conveniently can; and there is not only absence of any effort to bettor the condition of these unfor tunate people, but every aid is fur nished them to make the too easy " descent to the shades" still more easy. The subject, it is true, had some notice in Sir Henry Parkes' time as Premier, and however excellent that gentleman's intentions may have been, no greater results came of them than a clause in one of the uhbernatorial speeches, that a measure would be introduced to better the condition of the aborigines. It is true also that the Parkes' Government went through the farce of appointing Mr Thornton as Protector, an office accepted by that gentleman without salary, and clearly without the remotest conception of the responsibilities attach ing t...
