To Tell the Age of an Egg. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 19 June 1914

To Tell the Age of an Egg. Tho method, explained bolow, of easily ascertaining whether an ogg Is fresh or otherwise, comes from tho Agricultural Society of Saxony. All the apparatus required Is a ves sel filled with water. rinccd In tho water, tho egg, If fresh, will remain resting at tho bottom of tho vessol In a horizon tal position. If, however, tho egg Is not qulto fresh, It. will rest with tho big end raised higher than tho small end, and tho higher tho bis end Is raised tho older In th« egg. All egg throo wocks old rosts dingo* nally at tho bottom of tho water. A three months old ogg stands actually poised on its small ond. An egg that is more than three mouths old will float.

THE MOSQUITO EVIL TUHNINfl THE INSECTS TO, PROMT. Employing herds of bats to de stroy mosquitoes is tho newest pro* ceduro in tho campaign against ma laria.

Child's Sad Death. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 19 June 1914

Ohi d's Sad Death. | Tragedy lurks everywhere, and a big percentage of accidents and fatalities are domestic, and of such a nature that they cannot be guarded against. On Friday last little Eileen Madigan, the third child of Mr Madigan, died under such circumstances as could not be provided for. The; little one put her head through; an opening in a shed to loo"k for eggs, and her support slipping: away from her, was caught by the neck and died from suffoca tion. The mother was with her a few minutes before. At an en quiry presided over by Mr Mark Foy, jf.P-, a verdict which really means accidental death was re turned. The funeral took place on Sunday, when residents united ?to show their sympathy with the bereaved family. The Rev. Fr. McHugh conducted the last-said rites, and Mr G. I.
