"The War of All the Centuries." [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

"The Wap of All the Centuries." - "EifS*s" Second War Number (Octo ber issue) contains many good and timely things. The chief attraction among many war features, is a masterly study of the war by- Dr. W. H. Fitchett the author of "Deeds That Won the Empire."

"The Story of the War," as re told each month by Dr. Fitchett in "Life's" Special War Numbers, should create a big demand for this popular Austral asian magazine. "Life" sells locally for sixpence.

Gravel and Bladder Troubles. Pram Mr. J. Armstrong, grocer, Car rington-road, Coogee, Sydney, N.S.W. "I had been Buffering from gravel, «sd after trying various remedies, irescribed by the doctor and getting no relief, my Bister induced me to rry Warner's Safe Cure. Before I had finished the first bottleful I was greatly relieved, and by the time I had used up the second bottleful I was completely cured.

HUMUS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

HUMUS. Always aim at keeping up your sup ply of humus (vegetable matter in the soil), as this is the first thing-a plai.t looks for (like the solids, such as chaff, to the horse). It must be In the soil to enable the three essentials to plant life—phosphoric acid, potash, and ni trogen—to thoroughly perform their functions. When the humus is0ab sent the three very necessary essen tials named would be absolutely of no value during a hot dry spell. Even in a favorable season, with moisture forthcoming, the relief would only be temporarily, and a dry pinch will pull it up at once. Not so when the humus is incorporated in the soil, for, apart from its functions as a moisture con server, it sets up certain bacterial ac tion. which makes more available any plant food that is in the soil, in an insoluble form; and the soil is much better able, when this vegetable mat-' ter is in abundance, to respond to any application of commercial fertilisers Always aim at keeping up the "body"; of your ...

THE INSTINCT OF BIRDS AND ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

THE INSTINCT OF BIRDS AND ANIMALS. Students of natural history have noted instances when birds, such as grouse, pheasants, and partridges, or even smaller. kinds, as thrushes and starlings, have dashed against or : have crashed clean through a win ; dow pane in full daylight, when cou i ditions were apparently most suitable for them to obse*ve their danger. Two independent circumstances very frequently accompany such an occur rence. In the first place, the birds are often in an abnormal state of ex citement—the game birds are being driven or have been startled in the field; the smaller birds may be un der pursuit by a bird of prey. In the second place, the window-pane . is usually situated in a house standing in the country, surrounded by a shrub bery or woodland; and this condition seems to be the primary cause of the accidents. The birds, in rapid move ment, see a semblance of woodlanl reflected in the windows, and, in cir cumstances altogether unfavorable for close or accurate in...

THINK SERIOUSLY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

THINK SERIOUSLY. Whenever we take the problem of better farming into our own hands satisfactory results are sure • to fol low. It is right and proper to take advice when it seems adaptable to present conditions, but after all Is said and done our decision must be made in accord with our judgmenc. Suggestions are good so far as they help one to form his own conclusions. The safest plan is to think seriously and logically before attempting any new line of work or before revising the system already in operation.

SHELLAC FOR WATERPROOFING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

SHELLAC FOR WATERPROOFING. The members of-the staff of Mount Rose Observatory, Nevada, have found shellac to be an impervious ' and pliable _ water-proofing for rub : bers, which otherwise during a day's ; use on snowfields absorb sufficient : moisture from the snow to dampen the feet. An application of the shel lac at infrequent intervals kept the rubbers in perfect condition. It was also found that a coating of shellac on the thongs of snow-shoes prevent ed them from becoming quickly water-soaked on wet snow, and so eliminated much of the sagging and heaviness that form a serious draw back to walking on webbed snow shoes over melting snow. Thongs coated with shellac also dried after becoming wet much more quickly than thongs uncoated. To dodge your work so that some body else has to do it is worse than unfair—It's a surrender.

STRANGE FINDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

STRANGE FINDS. In the course of our every-day life there is nothing more extraordinan than the way in which some valuable personal belonging—a ring, a watch or a poclcet-book—disappears sudden iy, and, as it seems, for ever, from our ken; there is nothing more ex traordinary than such disappearan ces, unless it be the unexpected and peculiar manner in which, occasion ally, the lost articles are recovered. Some few years ago there was in New York considerable excitement on account of a diamond ring, the disappearance of which, under excep tionally inexplicable circumstances, brought about a lawbuit as remark able as it was disgraceful. The sv was decided in favor of the person accused of the theft, but the matter remained a mystery until a ball-dress which had been worn upon that eventful evening became sufficiently old-fashioned to need remodelling, in removing the trimming from the skirt the dressmaker discovered, in the heading of a flounce, the missing diamond ring. ^ Not many of...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. The following method is excellent for cleaning and polishing irons: — Saturate a cloth with water, wring it partially dry, and rub some soap j well into it. Rub the. cloth well over the iron, and you will find that it will remove any roughness or marks that may have been-there, and leave the iron quite clean and smooth. To clean a white hearthrug, place a quart of dry bran in the oven till it is very hot, and then rub it well into the rug. Roll It up and leave for twenty-four hours, then shake well. If the rug is very dirty a sec ond application may be necessary! Here is a remedy for damp walls: 1 Take a pound of wax candles, or white wax, and dissolve it in su' cient paraffin oil, in an oven, to ren der it to the consistency of ordin ary paint. If the walls of a damp room are well brushed with this mix ture they can be papered or painted j without any risk of the damp pene trating. When making boiled starch, stir it around several times with a wax "can dle. This wi...

THE WISDOM OF THE SERPENT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

i.THE WISDOM OF THE SERPENT. There is in South Africa. snake which is termed the "egg-eater." Pro fessor Fitzsimmons, Director of the Port Elizabeth Museum, gives in his book, "The Snakes of South- Africa," an interesting instance of the wisdora of these serpents— "Being short of fresh pigeons' eggs once, I went to my cabinet and took the clean-blown shells of a few doves' eggs. Beating up the contents of a fowl's fresh egg, I syringed them int.n the empty shells, and carefully pasted tiny bits of tissue-paper over the holes. I put these in the egg-eaters' cage and watched, for I expected the snakes to swallow them as they did the other eggs. First one egg-eater advanced. He touched each egg gent ly in turn with the tip of his nose or the point of his forked tongue and crawled away in disgust. Another and yet another eagerly advanced, re peated the performance, and straight way retired. I began to get interested. Leaving the eggs, I returned in a few hours' time to find them still t...

The pretty young matron, having come unexpectedly into the nursery, i found her youngest—the blue eyed, golden haired Irene—in tears, and Smifkins, the nurse, vainly endeavor- j ing to comfort her. j "Why, what's the matter with mv wee pet?" asked the fond mother, tak-; ing the agitated child into her em- j brace. "What's mammie's darling crying for?" "She's cross, mum," explained the nurse, 'because I wouldn't let her go to the Browns' birthday party across the street." "Oh, I quite forgot that invitation," said the mistress. "But why is Miss Irene not to go?" "Because, mum, the Browns 'ave got charades, so Miss Bella says, and some things is so catchin'!"

THE PIGGERY. HOW TO RAISE PIGS. Suggestions for the Ambitious Boy. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 1 October 1914

THE PIGGERY. HO">V TO RAISE PIGS. Suggestions for the Ambitious Boy. 'By "The Old Man." Perhaps there is some farmer's boy, young or old, who is thinking of keeping pigs, or several of them, this season. If so, ] want to tell you what I have found out about raising pigs, and have you start right. Now if you were to buy an engine you would want one that could go. A pig is much like an engine, and you want to start right by getting one that is we'll made and that will grow and not stop growing. Then you must give it such attention as you would have to give an engine and see that all of its needs are supplied. Get one that does not look thin and weak, as if it had not been suckled long enough, or if its mother had been unable to properly feed it. Pick out a litter that has been with the mother for fuliy eight weeks, and that is plump and rollicking and round and full of play; a litter that has been fed a little outside, away frorn^ the sow, so that every pig is eating nearly enough ...
