DYSPEPTICS NEED NOT DIET. SIMPLE MEANS OF PREVENTING FOOD FERMENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 March 1914
DYSPEPTIOS NEED NOT DIET. L SIMPLE MEANS OF PREVENTI LNG FOOD FERMENTATION. Food fermentation is the camue of idl the discomfort and pain dysp,'pties ,uffer. It does not necessarily follow, :wn'ever, that in order to obtain re ief they must deny themselves the env :cymcnt they derive from eating sn 'ailed indigestible luxuries. The most atisfactory method of overeeomin :th, lifiiculty would be to prevent tl' fer mentation from occurring at all. :11 htis can be done by a very simpll nean.'. It must first be explained -hat most of the: foods we cat contain a certain quantity of add.forming ele nonts, and indigestible foods, of course :ontAin- a larger proportion. W11n :hese foods are eaten, the acid cllecte, trriLates the walls of the stomach, and anuses the food to ferment while it is ligesting. This fermenting food also rves off gas which distends the sto Snach, causing that full, uncomfortable :celing so often noticed after cating. ihe root of the trouble is the acid crmentation. T...
PRINTERS' ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 March 1914
PRINTERS' ERRORS. The Interstate Commission, with its earching inquiry into Typothetae me hods and tyranny, is doing splendid york, and showing the public how seri lusly the Master Printers "erred" ehen they laid themselves out to sue. •essfully control the trade and fleece .he public. The silly replies by leading e.embers of tihe association and its se 'retary to the Commissioners' queries why no answprs to the charges nul;ll save been submitted, are among the oest notable "printers' errors'' ever hronicled. One of the more familiar rid amusing sort, however, appeared he other day in a daily journal, when eferencee was made to the "great ,um. >er of post humorous eulogies" passed .n the late Lord Stratheona.
ARBITRATION DELAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 March 1914
ARBITRATION DELAYS. To most of us it seems to read like a ;host of the past to read in the ldaily newspaper reports of proccedings in Sonnection with the Brisbane Tramway strike. Mr Justice Higgins gave 1 le. vision, which was hailed as victory for .he strikerE, but the fact was overlook. 'd that appeals were promptly lol?cld, and are now being heard. That is :hey would be if it were not that ::Ir Arthur, the counsel for the union, !as, in conjunction with the union's s:olicitor, raised the objection that the lecrees of the Arbitration Court are sot subject to revision by the high :ourt. Holding such beliefs as this, no wonder that Messrs Arthur and Bren • an are known as the Higgins twins. it is always, of course, possible that 'his view of the law tmay be right. and since to alter the Arbitration Act would :, impossiblo under - present political conditions, the only remedy wlil be to hange the autocrat.

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. EASTERN PORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 March 1914
OUB, MELBOURNE LETTER. EASTERN PORTS. According to newspaper paragraphs, the State Government, in its eagsr de. centralisation fervor, is about to tpend money in making a port for Rastein Gippsland at Gabo Island. Mallacoota Inlet, it has been wisely decided to leave alone, since as a shipping port it is impossible, though, as a fishing ground and picturesque beauty spot, it should be a valuable asset to VIctonra. The funny thing about this outer port scheme is that not only is there n) port at Gabo Island, but at present toe;e, is no necessity.for a port. Just rovn. tho corner, so to speak, there is one of tLe finest ports in Australia, Twofold Pay, and if Victoria and New South Wales could only, through their goveruluen.s, exercise a little common sense and agree to consider Towfold Bay a dis. triet port irrespective of what State it is in, the possibilities of the back coun. try might be exploited. The proposed Gabo Island port will not only be cost. ly, even if it is possible, b...
