PUMPING OUT MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 June 1914
PUMPING OUT MINUS. Fifteen tons- of water must be pumped out of ttiineB for every ton of anthracite coal produced in Pennsyl vania (says "Popular Machanics"). As the more accessible coal seams have_beon exhausted, shafts have been sunk deeper, and the volume of water to be pumped out has increased rapidly. Statistics give the produc tion of anthracite coal from the Pennsylvania fields as a little less than ,70,00p,0QQ tons of-hord coal, per year, which, on a 15 to 1 basis, makes the water pumped amount to over a billion tons in a twelvemonth.

A VILLAGE MINISTER. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 June 1914
VILLAGE MINISTER. His full name was the Reverend John Pickleby Dabbs. Everybody called him little Dabbs, even the vil lagers, with the addition of Mr. Not that they meant to be disrespectful I never knew the man who could say a disrespectful word of Dabbs. But he was little, so little that peo ple felt they didn't do him justice un less they continually referred to it. Those were prosperous days in Sliertonstone when Dabbs began his ministry. Those were the days of village industries, when you might go down the street on a summer after noon and heqr the whirl of a wheel and catch sight of busy fingers and feet through many a wide-open door. Those were the days when half-a dozen Nonconformist farmers drove their gigs up to the chapel gate and marched into the pcwB with their wives and children in front of them. Those were the days when the Ast burys and the Caters and the Kent Walshes and other old Dissenting fam ilies were the pillars of many a neigh boring cause. But now, heavy rai...

HINTS FOR WASH DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 June 1914
HINTS FOR WASH DAY. Try. washing red table linen in water in which a little borax has been dissolved. Add a few drops of ammonia to the bkie water to whiten the clothes. Clothes turned right side out, care fully folded and sprinkled, are lia'.f ironed. Sprinkle salt on a wine stain and pour hot water through it until it is gone. Wet fruit stains with alcohol or pour boiling water through them. Kerosene in the boiling water whitens clothes safely, especially such as are yellow from lying. Put in a tablespoonful to each gallon of suds. For very yellow or grimy things, make an emulsion of kerosene, clear lime water and turpentine in equal parts. Shake them together until jreamy, then add a cupful to a boiler ful of clothes and boil for half an huor. The same emulsion is good for very dirty things, such as jumpers, over alls, working shirts, children's trous ers. Use it in conjunction with strong suds, as hot as the hand can bear, and rub a little directly upon dirty grease spots. Let t...

NOTES ON THE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 June 1914
NQTES ON' THE MEETING. It should be mentioned that Mr P. M.oHugb, who purchased the property formerly owned by Mrs Hudson, kindly allowed the club to beat the hares from his grass paddook into Mr Fraser's land adjoining, on the first day. This greatly added to the success of the meeting, as a large number of courses were obtained by this moans, to the great advantage of the specta tors, who standing on the hill side, could view the whole of the ooursmg on the lower country. Mr MoHugh, however, desires to keep the hares out of this paddock in the interests of a crop adjoining, and cannot see his way to permanently allow the game to shelter there. In order that the . hares might be pre served in the vicinity, Mr W. H. Birch, who is one of the oldest sup porters of the club, made a suggestion that a smaller paddock belonging vto Mr Frasor adjoining Mr McHugh's on the west should be wire netted. This* would mean that puss could find shelter when driven from other parts, and would be ava...

COURSING. OLUNES OLUB. BIRTHDAY MEETING-. SECOND DAY. The Birthday meeting of the Chines District Coursing Club wns continued and concluded on Tuesday. The weather conditions were again ideal as far as the spectators were concerned, but dog owners would have heartily .welcomed a shower or two of rain to soften tho ground, which was very hard.

Two or three courses were quickly obtained, and then there was a lull for a time, but as the beaters left the northern ond of the paddock and got nearer to tho homestead game were more plenti ful, and the trials came quickly. Then quite a number of hares were driven out of the horso paddock close to the homestead, and at lunch time only the final for the Birthday Stakes remained to be decided. The sport throughout was first-class, some ofthe runs being very close.' , A finul pj'oved to bo un necessary in the Puppy...

A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 June 1914
MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. A correspondent of'"To-Day" tells the following amusing story of a Brit ish midshipman's adventure In Japan: Last New Year's Day a midshipman from one of the big cruisers was "talcing in" the city of Tokio In a rickshaw. There was a keen 'breeze blowing, but it was prevented from howling merrily through the middy's whiskers by reason of the fact that he hadn't any. But If his face were de void of hirsute adornment, he, by way of compensation, held between his lips a number one Manila cheroot of imposing proportions, which he puff ed with ostentatious vigor. Now, these simple facts were noted by an equally simple but sternly conscientious Jap anese policeman, who prided himself upon his entire and precise know ledge of the laws of the land of the "rising sun." When the Oriental bobby saw that juvenile naval offi cer's glowing but beardless counten ance from afar ho thought of the Jap anese equivalent for the British "Ha! lia!" and ordered the coolie t...
