Gas for Wellington. REPORT BY MR. ALEXANDER. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 7 September 1899

-Gas for Wellington. REPORT BY MR. ALEXANDER. To His Worship tho Mayor, and Aldermen of Wellington. Gentlemen : — After a caroful investigation of the whole of tho circumstances and conditions of the town of Wellington, I have much pleasure in hand ing you my report on the question of oreoting Municipal Gas Works. I hand you herewith an estimate of the amount of gas required. also estimate of income and expendi ture, and would ask you to note the following re marks. The estimate of consumption is undoubtedly very low, and the estimate of income is correspond ingly low, while the expenditure to produce the amount of gas required is ample. I have carefully gone into the question of the cost of works, plant, and mains, and' find that the sum of £4,500 will be ample to meet all requirements, inoluding land (£200), engineer's commission and all oharges for floating loan and every other charge in connection with tho establishment of gas in your town.

The Curse of Slander. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 7 September 1899

The Carse of Slander. The most cowardly thing a person can do is ' to attempt to injure another by hints -and insinuations. There are those who cannot see a good deed done without attributing to it a bad motive. Wrapping themselves up in a mantle of self righteousness, they jit in judgment on their fellowrmortals, no matter how unfit they may be to judge another's actions. Slander is envy's favourite child. It knows no honour. 'Twas but one whisper. One - That uttered low, for very shame, The thing the slanderer dare not name, And yet its work was done. 'Twas hut a venom'd word That struck its coward, poisoned blow, , : -In qraven- whispers, hushed and low, i - And .jet the wide world heard. A hint I So slight, so low, And yet so potent in its power, - A human soul in one short hour Was crushed beneath its blow.

Value of the Egg in Sickness. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 7 September 1899

. Yalue ' of the Egg in Sickness. The value of egg albumen in food in certain diseased conditions is pointed out by an eminent authority. When fever is present, the appetite completely vanishes, he says. What one wants is an aseptic article of diet ; the white of an egg, raw, serves both as food and medicine. One way to give lt.is tb drain off the albumen from an' opening about half an inch in diameter at the small end of an egg, the yolk remaining inside the shell ; add a little salt to this, and direct the patient to swallow it. 'In typhoid fever the mode of feeding materially helps us in carrying out an antiseptic plan of treatment.. Further more, the albumen, tb a certain extent, may antidote the toxine of the disease, . Patients may at first rebel at- the idea of eating a raw egg ; but the quickness with, which it goes down witnbut the. ?yolk proves it to be less disagreeable than they suppose, and they are then ready to take a second dose.

GUIDE TO GROWERS. RESTORING WORN-OUT FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 7 September 1899

GUIDE TO GROWERS. RESTORING flORH-ODT FARMS. From the Agricultural Gazette of N.S. W. I A. long-abandoned farm is not so difficult to restore to good fertility as one that has been worn out by excessive cropping by a man who does not under stand his business, or who in hiring the place from another does not care how much the land is robbed. Many farms that have been left idle for several years have to a certain extent restored some fertility to the soil by the natural pro cesses. That is, leaves, vines, stalks, and even weeds will add a certain amount of humus and nitro genous matter to the soil each year. If such land is ploughed twice a year, so that the soil can digest and assimilate the plant-life that has accumulated there, it will be found tb be in a fair way to recuperate. It is not Buch a difficult matter to restore a run-down or worn-out farm as some people imagine.' It simply re quires a little practical and scientific knowledge put into: operation by a man who is not easi...

Do Creeping Plants Cause Damp ? [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 7 September 1899

Do Creeping Plants Cause Damp? How current; opinions have to be revised I Until, lately it has been believed that Japanese ivy, and similar vines that clung to walls by rootlets, made them damp. Now, we are taught that they keep them dry, for ' tons of water are evaporated daily in the growing season an amount which stems not larger than one's finger could not possibly draw from the earth. r.iThei rootlets absorb the moisture of the walls, while the foliage gives coolness during . the summer. It is said that the mortar on ruins covered with English ivy is so hard that it is difficult to tear down the walls. Only where the branches choke the gutters will heavy rains cause dampness ; it never comes from the clinging Of the plant to„the walls.
