A MEXICAN ROYAL TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 18 September 1914

A MEXICAN ROYAL TRAGEDY. . ~ On May 10, 1864, Maximilian, the handsome, blue-eyed, fair-boarded '.brother of the Austrian Emperor, made his proud entry Into the capi . tal of Mexico, the land over which ho had been chosen by Napoleon to rple. There was no portent on that glorious, day to hint at the- tragedy which was to close his reign and his lifo within three short years. It had been from no lack of warn ing that he had accepted the crown of Mcxico as ..the puppet of the designing Napoleon. His brother, the Austrian Emperor, anO every member of the Royal House hail warned him of tho perils he- would encountor; but his wife, a Belgian Princess, had scolTod nt his fenrs. It was not long. howovor, before Mexico was seething with rebellion, and Maximilian's throne was totter ing to its fall. Then, thoroughly alarmed, tho Empress Charlotte bado her husband hold bis throne while she started for Europe to supplicate Napoleon's help. He re* fused to raise a hand to help her, and tho resu...

THE FARM. HARVESTING LUCERNE FOR HAY, [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 18 September 1914

THE FARM. HARVESTING LUCERNE FOR HAY, "Forage crops suffer both in yield and quality if harvested too early or too late. Much damago is done; also, when too much or too little time is given for curing. Lucerne is especially susceptible to mistreat ment becauso the leaves may be lost, the colour spoiled and soluble nutri ents lost by a little neglect, and it payB good returns for care owing to the high price ot a first-class pro duct. First class lucerne hay has fine stems, many leaves, and a bright, pea-green colour/' Bays R. L. Stew art, of tho New Mexico College of Agriculture. "If lucerne has made a ran^ growth it will be found necessary to harvest at an earlier period than if it has grown slowly. Rank growth means coarse hay. This is why the second cutting of hay is usually coarser and not so good in quality aB the first cutting. If the lucerne is allow ed to stand too long before cutting," tho lower leaves will turn yellow and fall, and the part that the hay buy er most desires...

CHEESE EXPERIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 18 September 1914

CHEESE EXPERIMENTS. I should like to call attention to some cheese experiments which have recently been carried out at the Kil marnock Dairy School on the mak ing of cheese from different qualities of milk (writes Mr. Primrose Mc Connell in the "Dairy" London). | The experiments were for the purpose 1 of testing what proportion of cheese could be got from milk containing varying quantities of cream, and it was found, as one would naturally j expect it to be found, that the whole ? milk fairly rich in fat gave- very i much more cheese than that from: which some fat had been extracted, varjing down until the lowest,was obtained from s!eim-milk. I It was found, apart from this, ' however, that the cheese of the high-1 est proportion of fat also held a I fairly large proportion of water, and that in the case of the skim-milk cheese "less water was held, or it dried up very quic'aly. Thus it sim ply exemplified the old saying about 1 "requiring an &*e to cut a skim-milk cheese wi...

Is it Pleasant to Die. STRANGE SENSATIONS ON THRESHOLD OF DEATH. / > ' FIRSTHAND STORIES.

Dowries for Gifts. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 18 September 1914

Dowries for Gifts. At different times thoughtful peo ple have stipulated in their wills that a certain sum - of money shall bo set aside to provide dowries for girls. The best-known example is the Bute Marriage Dowry, established by a Marquess of Bute, who left £1000 for the purpose. The annual inter est upon this money, about £30, is presented each year to a claimant for it, the fortunate girl being cho sen by the Mayor of Cardiff. When handing the money over to the lucky young lady and her sweetheart, it is customary for the mayor to read the young couple a portion of the second chapter of St. Johu, which refers to thp marriage in Cana of Galilee. Dowries for girls are also pre sented at Guildford, the practice of throwing dice for what is called the "maid's money" taking place an nually. The money is derived from capital sot apart in the will of a certain John How, who requested that dowries should be paid to poor servant girls who had worked faith , fully in the borough for some...

WHITEWASHING. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 18 September 1914

WHITEWASHING. Since, the law in some parts of-the country demands it, and as sanitary scicnce says it is a pood thing in th? interest of the health of the herd, and the wholesomeness of the pro duct, whitewashing of tow stables and other premises about the dairy has become an annual duty among our good dairymen. We admit that it is a disagreeable job, - this handling of lime, wielding the old-fashioned whitewash "brushy which must be poked into innumerable corners and over rough surfaces in order to make a good job, and dodging ths splash ing fluid, and especially so when those engaged in milking must do the work, as their-lrands are invari ably tender and therefore af tacked by lime. The handling of whitewash with a brush is not only disagreeable but it is somewhat expensive, and this accounts very often for the tar diness of some dairymen to do their whitewashing. There is one easy way to get around this difficulty,'and that is by means of a spray pump. It does the work well and q...

Teaches Surgery by Films [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914

Teaches Surgery by Films After many vicissitudes, the new use of the cinematograph. has been .begun by Dr. Doyen by teaching surgery to students by films. His films also preserve tho records of operations. A few years ago a gold medal at Berlin was awarded him for surgical films; * He is the only owner of a collection of such films and now has more than fifty, show ing nearly all tho great surgical operations. He advocates this method for students before admitting them to. a view of the actual operation, which then becomes much moro valuable. ' Hp also makes ' it a point that such rr record of his ac« tual work permits a doctor to cri ticise it and his assistants' posi tions in a way that they*"could not possibly do otherwise. It is also an infallible record of tho correct ness'and adequacy* of the methods employed. Dr. Doyen advocates the establishment .by this means of a] great museum of surglcpl art, which . would assemble films of tho great-1 est operators engaged in unique or d...

Swans Crown Property. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914

Swans Crown Property. England is at present the only country in tho world which prac tises with success, and on ft largo scale, tho raising of Bwans. This privilege is largely due to tho fact that tho British Isles form an im j portant halting stage in tho route taken by the numerous' flights of wild swans when they leave the northern shores of » Scandinavia for Central Africa. Qufto the most important of the swan farms or swanneries in the British Islands is that at Abbots bury, near Weymouth, in Dorset shire, . which dates its foundation from the 18fh century. The birds are distributed over an 'immense do main, formerly occupied by an ab bey, comprising marshy . meadows and copses. A river, rendered brack ish by tho close proximity of the soa, meanders through the grounds. The work of the farm is performed by ten men, whose duty it is to cap ture the swans intended for sale, otherwise the birds are left cony plotely alone to wander about ar.d to disport thomselves in the water, Wh...

Does the Air Carry Disease. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914

Does the Air Carry Disease. "It's in the nir" is n phrase that will ho longer be considered appli cable to disease. "Dr. (J. U. Clm pin /louts the idea that the air can convey infection, and other medical authorities support him. Up till recently it was considered that at ' least malaria and yellow fover came by the air route to their victims, us did typhoid fever, cholera, dysentery and diarr hoea, not to mention typhus fever and plague. The excretions, as well as the breath, were assumed to give off the germs. Whet? tlie Prince o»' Wales in 1871 contracted typhoid fever at Snndringham, the escape of sewer gas into his apartment was considered by everyone a sufficient explanation. Now, says the*'Lan cet,' conveyance by infected water or food is universally held, and the "carrier" has supplied /the missing link in previously inexplicable'cnses. The discovery and study of the cas ual. microbes has shown that it is I by water, food, contact, flies, and carriers that . these diseases a...

The Internal Bath. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 25 September 1914

The Internal Bath. Pr. (Jarey, .the French specialist in 1 appendicitis, has asserted that al ! most, nil of his appondicitis pa | tients were \yater drinkers, from ' which he deduces the theory that wine ,1s a safer beverage than water. Commenting on this, another spe cialist, Dr. W. F. Varcoc, says that on * the contrary, free water dr'n'cors seldom if ever have ap pendicitis. Most cV those afflicted I with that disease have not drunk ' enough water, but too much wine, ' beer and whisky. | The doctor assures us that pure ! water or diltilled water well aerat ' ed, is certainly better than wine, I' especially the cheap wines of artifi cial manufacture, which are -very in jurious to the system. Constipation is the most »'requent cause of ap pendicitis, and one or two glasses of water before, retiring- and one half hour before breakfast will curc ntany cases of that torpid condi tion. Water gives an internal bath ; it dilutes the fluids in which the colls of the body are bathed; it i...
