HOME GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 15 November 1924

HOME GARDENING. %:~--.------- By "Heather Jock." Seldom, if ever, d(a we experience such copious rains in late spring as has been our lot this year. The gar deneor must be o.n the outlook for an :trIly change to dry summer wea'.h:r. In lightish soils immediately we have i couple of days' dry weather t .- Nor:l Irc. s hoe should he freely usAl over the whole surface to a depth of about inc and a half inches, leaving a nice oose mulch on top. This is a thousand i-:;cs more valuable than. the hose. Hl'e Ircso covering acts as a moisture *onscrver, and at the same time pro viding free access for air, much to the .dvantage of the plant as well as the ll important bacterial life in the soil. En heavier soils it will take a few mora lry days before the hoe will operate :uccwss fully. Thcse desiring ;: good show of dalh lias should now have work wvell in 'and.

DEATH OF N. B. McKAY [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 15 November 1924

DEATH OF N. B. McKAY The late Mr. Nathaniel Breakey McKay, whose death occurred after a very short illness at his home in Sunshine on Sunday evening, 9th inst., will be mourned by a large circle of friends throughout the whole of Australia. He was a man of many attainments, and during his career followed divers pursuits. Shortly after he was born on the gold diggings at Stawell in 1859, his parents moved to Raywood, and afterwards to Drummartin, north of Bendigo, where land was selected, and the family engaged in farming pur- suits. Here were born all the younger members of the family, and it was here that the now world famous Sunshine Harvester was first invented and built by his younger brother, Mr. H. V. McKay. Being of a literary disposition, the late Mr. McKay left home at an early ago and joined the Victorian Educa- tion Department as a junior teacher, and was stationed for some years at schools in the Goulburn Valley dis- trict, being there during the time of the Kelly gang's...

JOE'S CHANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 November 1924

Football matches were young Joe's besetting weakness; he was rlways asking for time off to go and seo therm.. At last his employer got sick of It, and 'after his usual Friday re quest said sternly: "Now, undlersiand me, my lad. You've hadl live Saturday mornings off already this football season. If you take to-morrow morning you fiinºh altogether." Crestfallen, Joe beat a silent re treat. But a few minutes later he was back in the private .office again, his face wreathed' in smiles. The "boss" looked up inquiringly. "I've been thinking, sir," said the lad, "you'll be wanting another boy in my place, won't you?" "Of course we shall," agreed the boss. "Do you know of one?" Joe touched his forelock respect fully. "No, sir," lie stammered; "but I- I was going to ask you, sir, if-if I'n! here early on Monday morning, will -will you give me a chance?"

FOR YOUNG FOLK. AN INDOOR GAME [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 November 1924

FOR YOUNG FOLK. AN INDOOR GcAME' "What is my thought like?' is one of the old-fashioned parlour .games which require quick-witted players. One of the party thinks of a certain object and then demands of the rest "What is my thought like?" Each gives an answer: "Like a goose," "Like a table," and so on, When all have answered the first player tells what he thought of, and the others must prove the resemblance they supposed, or else pay a forfeit, 'I'hus if the secret thouight had been of a (log, the player who had guessel it to be "Like a goose," might escape paying a forfeit by saying it was "because they both ate grass grass sometimes." The one who said it was "Like a table," of course, could easily explain that "Both had four legs," and so each in turn would make their explanation or surrender their forfeit.

NEURITIS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 November 1924

NE ITTiS, Neuritis is the name given to definite inflammation of a nerve, and it may arise from any one of a num Ier of causes. Any form of blow or injury may cause it, and any inflam mation or disease of the bones or muscles may give rise to neuritis by direct pressure on the affected nerve. Exposure to cold seems to be a fre quent cause, and the poisons asso ciated with various acute fevers, such as rheumatic fever, enteric fever, and influenza, not infrequently give rise to this condition. The symptoms are apt to be of two kinds, either of which may be more or less pro nounced, or even absent. In some cases there is a varying degree of paralysis of the muscles to which the affected nerve conveys messages, and there is nearly always pain or numb ness, "pins and needles" sensations being very common. Accorumrk to its cause and nature and to the particular nerves affected the duration of neuritis varies enor mously. In some cases all symptoms may disappear in a few days, in others t...

VARYING HEARING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 November 1924

VARYING TIEARING. A peculiarity which many have doubtless noticed, is that those hard of hearing are not always subject to the same degree of deafness, that the amount varies from day to dlay, de pending upon conditions of the body. When tired from overwork, brain ex hau3tion, or lack of sleep, the hear ing is diminished. Some always hear less in the evening than in the morn ing, as by that time the bodily powers and nervous system have been drawn upon too heavily. Damp, moist weather has the same effect, the at mo3pheric humidity occasioning a swelling of the mucous lining of t.i nose and Eustachian tube, as well as of the middle ear, and preventing, by the partial closure of the tube and the swelling within the middle ear, the free motion of the chain of bones,

VALUE OF OPINIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 November 1924

VALUI OF OPINIONS. Many people imagine that. to ex press a liking for onions denotes a vulgar taste; but this much-despised vegetable has excellent qualities, It contains a large quantity of ni lrog lenous malettLer and ,uncr'ystallised sugar with a pungent oil. If chil dronl were encouraged to eat onions many an Illness might be prevented. If baby has a cold, or seems croupy, frequent doses of onion syrup give relief. The syrup is obtained by cutlting tlhe onion into slices, cover ing each with brown sugar, and put ling one on the top of anolter in a lish. For those who can take them, it raw onion eaten before retiring acts as a tonic to the nervous sys :em, purifles the blood, helps diges iion, and often prevents insomnia.

BRAYBROOK COUNCIL Notes of Interest to Ratepayers [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 November 1924

BRAYBROOK. COUNCIL" Notes of Interest to Rate payers Some discussion took place at the last Brayb:ook council meeting upon the question of attention to the drains of the township. Cr. Skewes spoke very warmly upon the subject of dirty drains, and mentioned that one of the men employed was not suitable for the position. Under pressure from the president he mentioned the man's name. Considc.;ing, I,, said, £600 was being spent upon the work yearly the ratepayers were ?es.tti.lg a very poor return. After n;,,e dis cussio.n as to the inspector's duties, a motion was passed instructint: lnspe-. tor Jasper to report to the shire sec retary all cases of neglected gutters. The general complaint of cu(,uncillors was that while the Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works supplics water free for flushing no flushing or sweeping of gutters is ever carried out by the workmen. 'The president (Cr. G. McKay) said if the foot bridges were done away with and open drains substituted the work could b...

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 November 1924

POULTRY NOTESI fly "Tight Feather." Oa the question of laying breeds it is douhftul whether utility poultry l:,;.dlers realise the fact that in the fancy birds we have many specimens: that can and do lay equally as many eggs as the majority of so-called utility strains. Further, it is very probable, when we c(,me to consider the matter, that the main reason why White Wyan dottes, White Leghorns and. Black Or pingtons usually come out on top in any egg-laying tests is mainly due to the fact that these breeds have for a longer period been specially selected for their laying powers, and if the san:e attention was paid we have in the fancy a .number of breeds that would not only equal, but, in some cases, excel the chief favourites of the present-day utility breeders. It may well be admitted in certain breeds exhibitors have so concentrated on pro(lucing certain items, such as comb, lobe or leg, that utility quali ties have suffered, but there are a number of exhibition standards that d...

HOME GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 22 November 1924

HOME GARDENING. l1y "ileather Jock." Continuing our discussion of the dahlia, the third method of piropa gating is by planting the whole tuber or part thereof. The thest system is to take a box about five inches deep, place the tubers in the box with the crowvns up, and cover just up to the ba;se of the old stem with sand, just as in the case of propagation by cut ti ig. Keep the sand moist, and the box in a good open, sunny position. ,hen the shoots emnie up to about two ;r three inches long raise the Lubers out of the sand and divide LIle tulirs up, leaving one good strong shoot on each portion. Rub off all w.ek shoots or buds except the one strong stem, and plant into their per m:anent position. A watch must he ket after planting to destroy all except the one selected shoot. ::ome growers simplly plant out the entire tuber, but if good blooms are desired in most varieties this is not a good practice unless one takes the pains to destroy all except one or two shoots.
