REASONS WHY WE UNDERDRAIN [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

REASONS WHY WE UNDERDRAIN It is, explains the "Drainage Jour nal" : To get the excess of water out of the soil. To prevent the surface washing of the soil. To save the humus of the soil. To save the fine particles of the soil. To save the fertility brought up by tbd capillary action of the soil. To save the fertility brought down out of the air by rainfall to the soil. A drained soil Is ready for the plough several days in advance of the soil not drained.. A drained soil is eight or ten degre?-s warmer, and is more easily made readj for the seed. Is deeper, allow-ing the feeding rootn to penetrate as deep as the t!les are laid for food and moisture. A drained s3il is ready to cultivate sooner after a ralnfall. A drained soil is less injuriously af fected by wet or dry weather. Crops on a drained soil have a longer season for maturity. A well under-drained soil will increao : the ciop productions from 10 to 15 per cent.-sometimes more. A drained soil is in the best possible condition...

ASTOUNDING DISCOVERY REPORTED ARTIFICIAL ALBUMEN. AN AMUSING PROGNOSTICATION. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

ASTOUNDING DISGOVERY REPORTED ARTIFICIAL ALLUSIEN. AN A MUSING PROGNOSTICATION. Dr. I-Iarowitz, the Vienna correspon:7 ent of the "'Chronicle," has a hawk-like eye for sensational scientific discoveries. He it was, we believe, whose telegrams first published the news of t'ie discovery of the X-rays, and of Prc: -sor Schenk's startling theories of the genesis of sex. Now he sends at some length news of the astounding experiment with which Dr. Lilienfeld closed the Chemists' Congress in Vienna yesterday. The last day brought th- greatest sen sation, says the telegram, "namely, the discovery of a method of producing arti-. tclal albumen with absolutely the same nourishing qualities as found in that which is obtained from organic beings." This is a discovery of enormous conse quences to the life of nations. The pro blem, which was one of the most diffi cult in organic chemistry, has been solv ed, after years of study, by Dr. Leo Lilienfeld, of Vienna, in the most simple synthetic way. B...

PREMONITIONS. cL n ire the raze salutes the shore, Te calr may catch the billow's roar, A rmessage from the sea; t\iid thus to languish through the strife, With bitter disappointments rife, .re premonitions of the life That surely is to be! LTet angry surges dash and break, Till crags and beetling headlands shake . Fronm top to rocky bed; I:ut when the tidal wave recedes. There lie the brilliant ocean meads, The coral flower that far exceeds The beautics art can spread. 0, never fear when troubles rise, Ur mortal shadows pain the eyes, And every hope decays. Above the clouds the sun Is bright; Look up!-a rift will cheer the sight- A premonition of the light That sets, all heaven ablaze! Loss is the measure true of gain; All sorrow comes to sweeten pain; it is God's stay to give; The shadow fades, the clouds will go. The tears will cease their painful flow Ah, these blest truths we soon will know' When we begin to live! The heavenly land doe's not appear, l:ut trials bring its shores...

OUR BLOOD FILTERS.-HOW TO CLEANSE' THIEM. Your lungs supply air to your blood. Your heart pumps it all over your body. Your kidneys- filter it. You would die if any of these three great organs stopped their work. But if any one is more important than the others, it is the kidneys. If your heart is the cause of one disease, your kidneys are the cause of twenty. Treating the kidneys is a great help to some lung and heart diseases. But treating your lungs or your heart will never benefit your kidneys. When you feel dull, ambitionless, dizzy, tired, nervous, have pains in your back, headache, chilly sensations, evil forebodings, puftiness of the eye lids, swelling of the feet and ankles, when you are losing flesh and sleep, you may be sure you have kidney trouble.

Angle-Sa::on superiority and seeks to s:et forth the causes. The author Is M. Denoelins, edi tar of ."La Sociale;" and a prom:inent Parislan firm published his biook. 31. C. de Mann's instructive review of 2M. Demolins's work appeared in the "'Lite rary Digest," October f. 159I7, emphasis being placed on the author's ther's that French decadence Is primarily due to de pendence upon the community in con *trast to Anglo-Saxon dependence upon individual enterprise. The author mnakes a mistake, according to M. de Man,, in ignoring completely the moral fo,rces and trusting entirely to political andT practical measures to bring about tite needed reorganisation of French so ciety. M. Demolins's views are given additional prominence by the indorse ment they have just received fromn an other, prominent Frenchman. the late M. Jules Steeg, who for years w...
