DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. "Anyone who has not the nature of a cabbage is neurotic," said Dr. Leon ard Guthrie in a lecture on "The Ner vous Child" before the Child Study Society. He gave no definite advice as to what should be done with ner vous children, but he asked that they •should be treated with sympathy, and that their parents should not put down all the children's troubles to ' some form of organic disease. He de scribed the night-terrors of nervous children as occurring between the years of three and eight. If the child suffers from slight indigestion, he he said, it is seldom terrified by pain, 'fbut by horrible faces. A stuffy bed room will make it dream of being •strangled. Cold limbs often cause a child to get terrors of icebergs or ava anohes, and lying in an uncom fortable position brings dreams of tor ture chambers. All its mental re ; eponses to sensations are quadrupled in its dreams, and they bring on in tensified memories -of past troubles only faintly connected ...
"Critic's" Criticism. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
" Critic's " Critieism. To the Editor. Sit,—My remarks in your issue of 11th insfc. in reference to a '• recent dance " ap pear to have raised the ire of E. and Jocie Wood, though why 1 do not know, for there was nothing tbat I remember in my remarks in any way reflecting on them. I do not feel inclined to enter into a contro versy on the subject, especially in reply to such gracefully written remarks as those of your correspondents. What I particularly wished to draw attention to was the de sirability of not allowing mere children— some of them with no escort of any kind— to attend and take part in these dances. And I think every right-thinking person will agree that such a practice shculd be stopped. I would inform the writers that I am much married, an'd I am of the opinion that no children under the age of 14 should be allowed to take part in public dances, and then only when i charge of a ; parent or some guardian. 1 have no ob jection to dancing at social, evenings in the home...
A Huge Undertaking. CONSERVING MURRAY WATERS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
A Huge Undertaking. Conserving Murray Waters. The preliminary work (says an Albury exchange) is already in pro gress at Cumberoona in coiiuection with the construction of the proposed mammoth dam to conserve 'the Mur-. ray waters, in. pursuance of- the' '"agreement between the Comaauu- / wealth, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. For some','" time diamond drill boring tests have •been in progress for the purpose of ascertaining the quality and- the / depth of the footing on the mouii-/ tain side. The Mines Inspector had a trip last week to ascertain re sults. If Parliament gives author ity next session foi carrying out the scheme, work, it is expected, will be immediately entere'd upon. About a thousand'men will be em- . ployed. The dam site is IS miles above Albury. It is estimated that it will cost ,£1,500,000 for the ' . scheme, which will be the largest in - the world, conserving four times the amount ot water in Sydney Harbor.

Are You Enrolled. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
i Are Yoti Enrolled. The Federal law imposes upon electors the necessity of securing their enrolment as electors. Those who neglect the duty are liable to a considerable penalty. , But the iaw ! appears to have been made to con fuse people of avera e intelligence, and there is no certainty that a per son having once been enrolled will continue to be so. If he wishes to circumvent the,vagaries of re-com pilation and remain a qualified elector, he must keep a sharp eye on the lists, otherwise his name may be scored out, or have his oc cupation or designation altered. In the latter event, one may find, con siderable difficulty in identifying himself. Organisers are busy throughout the city and country electorates in an effort to secure the fullest pos sible enrolment5 of their respective supporters, but & Liberal organiser is not likely to go out of his way to make sure that a well-known Labor supporter has been left off the roll, and vice versa. It is not human nature, and' it...

Hints to Dairy Farmers [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
Hints to Dairy Farmers By R. T. Archer, Senior Dairy Inspector. Don't neglect to make frequent tests of skim milkl- -Because much money may be lost in this way. Frequently 1 per cent, of fat is lost in skim milk. If 100 gallons a day is separated this would mean a loss of lOlbs of fat. At 1/ a pound that would mean a loss of £?> 10/ per week. Don't neglect to cool the cream.— 'Because cooling the cream imme diately it is separated checks the development of bacteria, drives off animal odours, and enables the pro duction of better butter. It should be kept cool till sent to factory, if necessary, by wrapping a wet bag round or standing can in cold water. .Don't mix? warm fresh cream with cold cream of a previous separating. —Because it will develop objection able ferments and flavours in the butter. Mix only when cold. j Don't forget, to stir the cream i night and morning with a clean i stick.—-Because this helps to ripen it properly, and prevents a dry skin forming on top, Don't k...

SEED POTATOES. Necessity for Careful Selection. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
SEED POTATOES. Necessity for Careful Selection. Numbers of growers have, had rea son to complain of the quality of their seed potatoes. Perhaps they are them selves to 'blame to some extent for not taking greater care in selecting the seed, The seed potato which is j most favored is one weighing from two to four ounces, and the grower who makes a rule of excluding from •his lines all, that fail to come within I this standard will give satisfaction to the purchaser and to those who j "handle his consignments. Not only | will he be able to command a higher •price in a bare market, but in a full market his stock will bring him quick -and good returns,..while that of his less careful neighbor will hang • fire •and possibly at the last be sacrified.. Diseased and 's'catoby*'-potatoes' should on no account be allowed : to i>ass. Knobby and misshapen sets should -also be strictly' excluded. It needs tout* very few of these to completely -spoil a whole line. The result of growing from th...

An Awkward Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
An Awkward Mistake. A farmer had determined, in spite of the bad times, to pay his rent if it were his last shilling, and, saying to the factor who received it: ■ "It is my ast shilling," he threw down a roll of notes. The factor counted them and said: "Tihere is £50 too much." , "Odds, man," ;said the farmer, "I put my hand in. the wrong pouch." "A: little nonsense now and then Is relished by the best of men." So from these lines it would appear That those,:who. at all nonsense . sneer : And curl, the lip, no matter, when, Are plainly not the best , of men. "Opportunity may knock at every man's door," writes a disappointed wag, "but to :"me opportunity has al ways seemed .more like one.,of those small boys who ring the doorbell and; then run." Words are the coini of thought. -&lt;
