MAKES BODY TRANSPARENT. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914
MAKES BODY TRANSPARENT. A new method of giving medical students instructions which, it is said, will1 largely obviate the necessity of dissection, will shortly be put into practice at the Hahnemann Medical College, Philadelphia. Physicians and surgeons connected with the depart ment of anatomy are now perfecting the process, which originates through the recent discovery by a German scientist of a fluid by the use of which the human body can be rendered transparent. The fluid, which is composed of sev eral oils, turns the flesh into a sort of transparent jelly when injected, en abling the student to study the veins, muscles and bones far better, it iB as serted, than if they resorted to the dissecting knife, it is said to be one of the most valuable discoveries til medical science of late years. Aim at the highest and at least yon soar. The sweetest grapes hang hjgbest

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. To relieve toothache, rub baking soda round the tooth and rinse the mouth with hot water. To polish black marble clock rub over with olive oil and finish with a clean chamois leather. Varnished paper on walls should be cleaned with a flannel dipped in weak tea and polished with a dry cloth. When baking small cakes or buns, flour the tins instead of greasing them. The cakes will not stick to the tins* and will bake quit© as* well. A simple, effective glue that is harmless, colorless, and odorless can be made by adding ordinary tapioca to water and boiling. When plates and dishes have to be warmed in the oven, if a newspaper is placed underneath, it will break the heat and prevent the plates from cracking. - Frost-bitten vegetables should be soaked in cold water for one hour be fore boiling. A piece of saltpetre should be added to the water in which they are cooked. Where screws are driven into soft wood and subjected to considerable strain, they are very likely to w...
The Dredging Question. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914
The Dredging Question. In; the legislative Assembly on Thursday ^ast, Mr A. A. Billson criticised the recent action of the Minister for Mines with respect to the gold dredges, in the light of what had been done by Mr Drysdale Brown's two predecessors in office' He expressed the fear, that the steps . taken by Mr Brown would result in the stoppage of the dredging indus try. In explaining the fact that he had taken a seat on a cross bench instead of behind the Ministry in the House, Mr Billson ■ said he had not done so as an indication that he was leaving the . Ministerial party, but added that he did wish to protest against Mr Brown's' action. The Premier assured him that the differ-: ent aspects of the dredging question would be considered by the Cabinet.

Ovens Vale. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914
Ovens V^a.io« From Our Correspondent. Mr Alex. Muller recently lost an aged mare somewhat suddenly. Af ter partaking of her morning feed as usual she left the stable with the other horses, and later in the day was observed to be lying stretched out in the paddock in an apparently Injured condition. Eventually she was shot, and the ignition of a pile of wood committed to ashes what had at one time been undoubtedly one of the finest animals in the Ovens Valley. Preparations for the concert on 8th inst., at Mr John O'Sullivan's, in aid of Wangaratta Hospital are well in hand, and it promises to be a great success. The paltry action of Bright in trying to injure the Hospital will no doubt have the effect of arousing even keener inte rest in this concert. The growth of grass, although not as plentiful as hoped for, is fairly good and fresh, though not nearly so good as this time last year, no doubt owing to the dry weather ex perienced during April. - . The dairying industry is slacken i...

BufHFaJo River. From1 a Correspondent. Messrs Smith Bros, have just completed threshing their last year's maize crop. It is stated that the return was between 1600 and 1700 bags. Picking of this season's maize was commenced on Monday. T,he long-looked for hall will soon be an accomplished fact. Messrs Bower Bros., of Myrtleford, have secured the contract, and building operations will be commenced shortly. On Saturday last a work ing bee was held, and ft fine lot of red gum blocks were obtained and deposited on the ground in Moore Bros.' paddock where the hall is to be built The building is not to be as large as first intended. It will be 40ft by 24ft, which will be quite large enough for present require ments. The decision of the Fisheries and Game Department re kangaroos has been received- with disgust in these parts. It does seem ridiculous that we should have, to go to the expense and trouble . of killing these pests, and then the Government to get the skins. People in other .par...

School Prizes for the Show. . At a meeting of the Schools Asso ciation on Friday, Mr. Thos. Wal*., lacer. chairman of the Gapsted Schools Committee, said they were of opinion tHat the various com mittees should give a dozen prizes or so to the Myrtleford Annual Show, and thus do a little towards helping their handiest town.

They shoula do all in their power to assist their own little town, in stead of going away to others.

WITH VILJjA. IN MEXICO. "The army," explains - John &lt; Reid, writing from Juarez, Mexico, "about 200 horsemen and 500 infantry, were drawn up in a great hollow square two ranks deep, completely surround ing that immense plaza in front of the race track. . They were in all stages of attire, of course, but much more uniform than the federals at Ojouaga. About two-thirds of them had 'blue denim suits (overall stuff), and the rest more or less khaki. But every soldier had a different bright colored handkerchief around his neck, and a different colored serape strap ped on his saddle^—all colors, vivid and faded, and mottled like leopard skins. Their faces were STRONGLY INDIAN. for the most part, very dark—there were small boys not 14 years old, I should guess, too— but their riding boots were magnificently varied, some reaching to the hip, and ornameaited down the sides with buckles like sil ver dollars. They rollicked around like kids, stealing rides on street cars, making foo...
