SUBTLE CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 March 1914
SUBTLE CRITICISM. The small boy stood in front of the dazzling light of the cheap theatre with a yellow dog under his arm. Evidently he wanted to get in, and the sight of a well-dressed and apparently prosper ous man on the steps gave him an idea. "Are you the manager of the show?"' asked the boy. It turned out that he had guessed correctly, and the' lad continued: "I want to see the show, but I haven't got the money. I'll tell you what I'll do. '11 give you this dog if you'll let me in." The manager's heart melted. He remembered that he too had been a boy. "You may go in," he said, " but never mind about giving me the dog. Take the dog along with you. The lad went in with the yellow dog under his coat. After the perform ance the manager was still standing in front, and happened to see the urchin cume out. "Well, sonny," he remarked, "how did you like the show?" "Oh, pretty well." he said; "but I'm glad I didn't have to give you the dog."
AN EYE HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 March 1914
AN EYE HOLIDAY. Everybody should give his eyes a day's holiday at least once a month. This is the opinion of an experienced house surgeon. "In the present age," he says, "we experience far more eye strain, owing to increased reading bha bits and multitudes of glaring hghts, than our forefathers did, and we suffer more from headaches. Therefore, give your eyes a holiday as frequently as possible. Give them a day's absolute rest, and the relief the next day will be most refreshing. When taking an eye-holiday a room with green wall paper is a good place to rest in if one cannot get to the country and Na ture's green fields and bees. Green rests the eyes more than any other colour."

BABIES Babies are Australia's best immigrants, but in many homes baby does not appear, greatly to the disappointment of husband and wife. Ladies so disappointed are strongly advised to consult Mra D.

RAISING LAMBS FOR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 March 1914
RAISING LAMVBS FOR MARKET. Mr A. Woolford, of Beetaloo Valley, (S. A.) recently contributed a paper on this subjet at a bureau meeting. He advocated obtaining young merino ewes sr. four tooth, of good frame, and crossing .hem with a Shropshire ram. If thLe e-wes lambed early, say in April, with good feed the lanmbs should be rea'dl for the early markets. From this cross, big lambs with good wool hou!d be obtained which should do well and fatten quickly. He had found his dr(lricji verV oui+ablo fo,* 'cheep. 'Tihere was a good averagct rainfall, and a good supply; of grain, which kept green nerly all thoe year. The looality was alo uitabile for woolgrowing, the wool being heavy and greasy. He advised growing lucerne for topping off. Cattle were not so profitable as sheep. Mr. F. Bartrum considered the district unsuit able for lamb-raising, as the holdings were too small, and feed was always late.
GROWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 March 1914
(iROWLS. (BY "THE GRUMBLER.") The cry of stranded (so-called) "Australians" is again heard in the land. An appeal has been made to bring frosn South Africa a number of "Australians " who are stranded there by reason of the want of money to pay their passage to Australia. It is diffi cult to understand why the taxpayers of the Commonwealth, or the States, should be asked to "foot the bill" for any such purpose--no matter from what aspect the question is viewed. No doubt these individuals, when they shook the dust. of Australia from their boots, accompanied the operation with a great flourish of trumpets as to what they were going to do in the new land of promise, and revilings of the land they were leaving. Had these men succeeded in South Africa, Australia would have been of little or no concern to them. Failure, anywhere, is pro bably their great forte ; if so, we hsave not any use for them. In any case, it is manifestly unfair to those who think Australia is good enough for them o...
IRON IN FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 March 1914
IRON IN FERTILISERS. Iron is always found in the ash of plants. and, therefore, forms a part of their composition, but in such an in significant quantity that it is not neo essary to take it into consideration. A crop of wheat, grain, and straw is estimatcd to contain only about 21b to the acre, and hay from 31b to 51b. Mr Muntz. Professor of the Institute Ag ronomique at Paris, investigated this subjc~t, mid pointed out that the ac tion of sulphate of iron as regards producing increase of crop or improve mert of quality does not justify the favorable opinions sometimes expressed. Farmers should not be induced to pay for it as an ingredient in chemioal manures. On the other hand, al though of no commercial use as a fer tiliser., it possesses properties which aro most useful as an insectioide, and for iho removal of moss, dodder, and other noxious growths.
MARRYING IN HASTE. DOES IT MEAN REPENTING AT LEISURE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 March 1914
MARRYING IN HASTE. DOES IT MEAN REPENTING AT LEISURE. The proverb "marry in haste, repent at leisure," would be more satisfactory if someone would be kind enough to explain the exact meaning of the word "haste." No doubt the average sen sibl, snail, crossing a country road, imagines itself to be progressing at a breakneck pace and brilliantly dodg ing the motor traffic. It would be surprised and hurt if it were to learn that we regard it as a symbol of ex treme slowness. And there are human beings whose mental processes resemble the physical advance of the snail. They are think ing as fast as they can. In their own opinion they are making up their minds with admirable velocity. But to the onlookers their calm leisureliness is maddening. "How slow he is to propose1" ex claim all the friends of the girl ?vhose suitor has taken ~a year to oome to the point. Nevertheless, the good fellow may be rushing to his doom with what seems to him the speed and inevitable ness of an avalanche. The...
GREEN MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 March 1914
GREEN MANURING. The manuring of land with a green clover or other suitable crop tends ma terially to increase tho productivity and fertility of that. soil. Years ago, t·he practise of growing such a crop and ploughing it in as manure was very popular indeed, but it is less extensivelx practised nowadays, the usual method being to feed the green crop off the ground. There are, of course, re?' tiam leguminous plants which enrich 'he soil to a considerable extent; in fic , if. for example, thle clover rs ploughed in, it returns more to the land than it extiricated from it., that is, ?i it is ploughed in just a:t the thmo when it has come fully in flower. One of .ho great advantages of green man uring is that the deca.ying organio mat .er or humus helps to retain and con oert-o the moisture uand the valuable fertilisimng p.pcI?Ltr i of tho soil in this reopect it is especially useful in dry jindy soils, with perm a Ale st b soils, tht occasion a great waso of tio manurial properties of ...
FEDERAL ISSUES. REPORT ON IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 March 1914
FEDERAL ISSUES. REPORT ON IMMIGRATION. The Ro-yal Commission appointed to inquire into the industrial resources trade, and legislation of certain portions of the British dominions, has issued its second interim report. That report deals in some detail with immigration to Australia, and it is interesting be cause it is neither an Australian nor a party document. If great national problems are to be solved, the issues involved must be considered from every standpoint; to ignore the interests of either capitalist or worker is to build on the sand. Tue commissioners insist at the very outset on the imperative necessity of establishing central control. That is an implied censure on. tho Fisher Ministr-, which, weakly yielding to the phalanx of extremists who dominate the leagues, left the States to battle against each other for immigrants, much s. rival storekeepers compete with each other for customers. The agents who did the actual canvassing were paid as subordinate insurance agents, ...
THE GARDENER'S WOES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 March 1914
THE GARDENER'S WOES. Included in the correspondence was a letter from the gardener, Mr Jas. Hanning, who complained of "the domineering manner of the matron," which was, he said, " be coming intolerable." He asked to be allowed to make a statement to the committee. Mr Fiegehen moved that Hanning be heard. Mr Rickard seconded the motion, but desired -that Matron Thomas should also be invited in. This was agreed to. In his statement the gardener said his wife, who was a patient at the hospital, had been complaining of her treatment by one of the nurses, and he had told the nurae she was too rough; Later, this nurse stopped witness :from going in to see his wife, telling him that the matron had given instructions that he wans only to be allowed in during visiting hours. ;He was annoyed about this, and complained to the matron, with out getting any satisfaction. Ata later time the matron had told him to get away to bed, and he replied, "I'll go to bed whien I like. It hasn't come to you...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 11 March 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Very large hats are extremely diffi cult to hang up e?.urely. The ditli culty can be overcome by stitching a loop of tape to the head lining of the hat. The loop is easily slipped over any hat peg. When an invalid's room needs sweep ing, the besit way is to wipe up the carpet rapidly with coarse towels wrung out of cold water. This dis poses of the dirt without annoying the patient, either by dust, or noise, and is the method employed by trained nur ses._ P~oisons of many descriptions, which have been intentionally or accidentally u.nien, may almost instantly be rend ered harmless by simply drinking half a pint of sweet oil.. A person with a strong oonstitution might take more. Instead of buying penny packets of table salt, put two pennyworth of lump salt in a cool oven to dry thor oughly, then grate and sift it. With every four ounces of salt, mix a tea spoonful of cornflour, put into jars or bottles, and store for use. It will never get lumpy. A buttonhole worked ...

ADVICE BY A LADY DOCTOR. .. ^ --©- "One of the peculiarities of the pree .ent day," said Dr Mary iScharlieb, lecturing al the London Institute or y giene lately, "is that we have a perfe determination we will suffer no pain we can possibly avoid, and that we will be very impatient and dis agreeable when pain is inevitable. "Because we feel like that,' she ob served, ;we have a tendency to take drugs to relieve pain. This Is not the spiri which we have always hoped is icharaoteristic of the English. This is hot the spirit which enabl-d Captain Scott to write seven, eight, or nine really cheerful letters as he watched his companions die and fehl that e himself i hust go in an hour or little more.
