Foul Breath. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 19 June 1914

Foul Breath The old saying that "distance lends enchantment" was never more aptly to the point than when applied to those people whose blreath is laden with evil-smelling and offensive odours. Many persons appear most attractive at a dis tance, but produce a feeling of pity and disgust when clbse to, because of the condition of their breath. For instance it makes little difference how beautiful a woman may be, or how charming her manner, if her breath is foul; her charm is gone, and she is at a disadvantage whenever she comes in contact with other people. Foul breath in wo man arouses in man a feeling of re pugnance and a desire to get out of the company of such a woman as quickly as possible, and even women will avoid her. It is, therefore, im portant for every woman who val ues her personal attractions to take such care of herself that this un pleasant and unnecessary complaint is avoided or corrected. Men, worn en, and clhilren who are troubled with this complaint will drive thei...

RAILWAY RATES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 19 June 1914

RAILWAY RATES THE State Cabinet has decided to introduce a bill next session to abolish local rates in new railway lines. Orbost people may benelit by this, but it does not touch the matter of the rate payable to the Railway Lands Acquisition Trust. Under the sections of the scare legislation passed in 1893 it pro vided (1) That in the event of a defi ciency being anticipated in the working of a new line a guarantee was required to cover the loss for a period of Io years. This wyas abolished in 1932, and in consequence the Tambo and Qr bost shires were refunded a sum of £fiooo they' bod iejosited. (2) That a "trust should be for med to purchase the land re quired for the railway and collect the amount by means of a rate levied on the pro perties beneficially affected by the railway. This is the railway construction rate that efforts are being made to have abolished by repeal of that part of the act. (j) That special local rates --shiuld be chargcable on" every new line-until such ti...

TREES AND RAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 19 June 1914

TREES AND RAIN. An impression prevails that trees exert a marked influence on the rainfall. Such, however, is not the case, according to Professor Ewart of the Melbourne University. He asserts that " A dense stretch of tall timber, by compelling rain clouds to pa~s'over a slightly higher elevation, may aid in squeezing" out a little more moisture than.if the trees were not there, but this is a purely physical action, strictly comparable with the action of a mountain range in cans ing rain to fall from the clouds as they ascend to pass over it, and hence lose heat. The action can never be very pronounced, since the densest belt of timber is not nearly so perfect a barrier as a mass of land of equal height, and an average difference of from 20 to 100 feet or so in elevation is, under ordinary eircitmstances, only a small factor in infliencing rainfall." The case against riogbarking of timber, because of the influence of th. method upon the rainfall, never had any scientific support, b...

THE DOG ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 19 June 1914

THE poG ACT. A CORRESPONDENT writes feeling ly in regard to injuries done by dogs to sheep, and complains, not unnaturally, that the Dog Act is not properly enforced, but the settler who does not keep sheep and wants a few dogs to destroy vermin and assist in driving stock does not see the matter in the same light. The administration of the act is a fruitful source of trouble in thl country districts and although municipalities can be compelled by law, to enforce it and enforce it effectively they general 1? adopt the method of pretending to carry it out or letting it severe ly alone. Councils, in short, have no option but to enforce payment of the fees, as far as legal liability goes, but nevertheless, the duty is more honored in the breach than in the observance. It is a well knowr' fact~that, although the dog inspectors round up some of the owners, that not one quarter of the animals are ever registered accord ing to law. The settler who would develop a dangerous amount of pugnac...

FOOT ROT IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 19 June 1914

<'Foot rot in sheep is infectious. How •infectious ? if decayed horn is strapped on to the sound font of another sheep, ii does not produce foot rot, but if suoud sheep are grazed on the lend where in fected sheep have been, they become in fected. This goes to prove that some sort if breeding or change takes place in the soil; and if no such proof could he given, I for one wouid say from toy own experience, that the land does become in fected, and that cleana sheep put upon it become infected from thle land, not direct from the sheep already diseased. Neglected foot rot, like neglected kib',, may_ lead to disetas' off the b.Jnee, and an incurable condition. Treatment.- Avoid infection. Be content to wait for th'? use of the land by employing it for other kinds of atock. Individual treatmient of cheep ia the most satisfactory but the most trouble so e.

GET RID OF BRONCHITIS, PEPS BRING OUICK AND LASTING RELIEF. Bronchitis means infiammation ot the bronchi or tubes that branch left and right from the windpipe to carry air to the lungs, and the acute torn of bronchi tis usually comes on very suddenly. The symptoms are tightness or soreness of the chest right behind the upper part of the breast-bone, a little hoarseness and ? tickling at the back of the throat, and with this is a very annoying, hacking mad dry cough. To stop that cough and relief the tight feeling about the chest, you must get to the root of the trouble by taking Peps, the new scientilic remedy of unique composition and icomparable effectiveness. In Pops we have a new principle in medicine for the treatment of chest trouble. As the Peps tablet dissolves on the tongtfe, pure, soothing and heal ing fumes are released and pass naturilly with, each iudrawn breath through the delicate air-p~ssages straight through the bronchial tubes to the lungs where the trouble lies.

THE WOOL INDUSTRY OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 19 June 1914

THE WOOL INDUSTRY OF AUSTRALIA. Australia has for many years contained more' sheep than any other country, and for over half a century has been the world's principal source of fine merino wools. The wool industry (states a con temporary) was inaugurated at an early 3saga of Australian settlement by tht introduction of a few Spanish merino sheep. It at once became apparent that the conditions of Australia were extreme ly favorable for the production of superi or wools. As settlement progreasPd in creased attention was paid to the breed ing of sheep and improvement of the fleece in weight and quality. The sheep of Austrilia in earlier days carried a fleace averaging abut 311b. To-day he avergeo weight of the Australian merino nfeece is nearly S'b., with, in some IlIoks, an even higher average weight. The annual exports of Aus tralian wool exceed £30,000,000 in valuo; while about 10.000,000 lb of wool is retained in the Commonwealth for manufacture locally into woollen goods, principal...
