LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 20 August 1915

LOCAL AND GENERAL. A TELEGRAM has been received by Cr W. T. McFee, of Rhyll, Phillip Island, stating that his son Fred, who joined the Light Horse Brigade had been wounded in the fighting in Turkey and had been taken to the Floriana Hospital at Malta where he was pro gressing favorably. ME J. SUTTON CROWE, organising secretary of the Music Examination Board of the Melbourne University visited Wonthaggi on Friday last for the purpose of appointing a local re presentative for the Board's examina tions. Mr Crow has been fortunate in securing the services of Mr R. Austin .O'Halloran, who has consented to act. It is interesting to know that Won thaggi, since the inception of the university examinations in this centre, has secured the advantage, each year, of the examination in both theoretical and practical being conducted in the town, which is far more satisfactory than for the candidate to have to journey to some other centre to be ' examined. The next examination takes place in Septem...

IJafolett (Btyxm. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY, TELEPHONE NO. 8. FRIDAY, AUGUST 20, 1915. NECESSARY PERSISTENCY. THE deputation, consisting of the Mayor, councillors' and resi dents of the Borough of Wonthaggi, councillors of the Shire of Phillip Island and Woolamai, which ap proached the Premier of Victoria on the question of sale of coal from | the State mine to the public, met with a measure of encouragement on the occasion of their visit; but j unless the Victorian State Govern ment be opportunely reminded of the justice and utility of acceding i to the deputation's requests past energy and agitation will prove futile There is, however, more than a ray of hope that the State i Government will soon yield to the irrefutable logic and common sense of selling its own coal to its own people. The Minister of Railways had been deservedly rebuked by "The Age" for expressing fear that the Legislative Council might reject a proposal to sell the State Mine's coal to Victoria's citizens. But sure...

Bass. A correspondent writes :-A very successful sale of gifts was held in the Bass hall in aid of the Bass Red Cross League on Friday, July 30. Mr W. O'Meara acted as auctioneer who impressed upon the audience the great cause they were gathered together for and opened the sale by offering an Australian fiag,- presented by Mrs Capt Henderson of Bass, which causcd spirited bidding and in a few -minutes reached the splendid sum of £19 7s 6d, and was finally bought by Mr Bass Emery and presented to the Bass State school. Numerous gifts of beautiful hand paintings, fancy work, farm produce, cattle, et'c , brought ex tremely high prices,. It is esti mated that over £100 will be raised, which considering so many other calls at the present time, proves the keen patriotism of the district, considering the committee got. the fair up in a fortnight. Much -credit is due to Mr Frank Natcott, of Bass, who untiringly canvassed the district for davs disposing of tickets in the various art unions a...

Sugar Beet in Great Britain COMPANY PAYS 4 PER CENT. IN TWO YEARS. A SOUND PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 20 August 1915

Sugar Beet in Great Britain COMPANY PAYS 4 PER CENT. IN TWO YEARS. A SOUND PROPOSITION. At a conference 011 the extension of British trade at. Cardiff, an address on the cultivation of sugar beet and the manufacture of beet sugar in the British Isles was given by Mr. E Rus sell Taylor, chairman of the Incorpor ated English Beet Sugar Pioneer Association. Basing hio calculation upon the experience of farmers who had grown it, he estimated that the cost of cultivating beet in Great'Brit ain (including rent, rates, labor, man ure, seed and carting to factory) was £10 4s lOd per acre. Another author ity had put it at £10 13s, while Mr. Thistleton Smith, of West Barsham had given to the "Farmer," as tho actual cost of beet cultivation per acre on an area of 28 acres, the figure of £9 4s 6d. The average farmer's profit per acre Mr. Taylor calculated as £7 15? 2d, and he therefore claimed that that if sugar beet was scientifically grown the benefits derived per acre would compare favorably...

A BOON TO MOTHERS. Among all classes of people we find children suffering from weak kidneys. The intelligent mother knows that this is not a habit, and searches for a remedy. It is something very hard to relieve, and the family physician tells her that the child will grow out of it in time. Sometimes they do, and sometimes they do not. In the mean time, annoyance and embarrassment are the result. If anyone knows a remedy is it not an act of charity, is it not a duty, to make it public? Should selfishness and pride keep it concealed? Mrs. Goss, of Korum burra, has used Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills in her family, and makes the following statement for the benefit of anxious mothers, and the relief of interesting little children; Mrs. S. Goss, Princess-street, ICorum burra, says:-"A member of my family suffered from a weakness of the kidneys, and slight backache. The weakness was very trying and annoy ing, but nothing seemed to do any good until I got Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills. The...

The Scent Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 20 August 1915

The Soent Industry. Among suitable rural industries in which women could achieve success would be the growing of scene and meriicnial plants, states Mr. Pye. principal of D iokio Agricultural Col lage. The Commonwealth is too dcp< ndoiit on other countries for es^'iiti il oik and medicinal plant, and a leavening of producers of thi-se minor industries, if started now a'ld protected sufficiently, would b i t!ie means of saving many a pounds ster ling to the Commonwealth, and would foster industries which stand for a healthy open air life to those engaged in them. Mr Pye states that a small plantation of true lavender planted 1 ut-t season on a dry hilltop has withstood the efifects of adrought to a remarkable degree. There is a good demand fit lavender oil, as it is the basis of seve ral perfumes. Owing to the possibility of obtaining a quick supply of labour it seems to be a plant suitable to grow near large centrics of population where there arc often small waste areas w...

AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 20 August 1915

AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. Lime on some soils is known io elim inate mosses, although those plants may bo abundant on limestone soils. The action of limo and superphosphate would seem to suggest that both ex cessive acidity and excessive alkalinity arc destructive to moss. Carrot juice is sometimes used for coloring butter, but this practice is not to be recommended, as it often causes the butter to decay, bosides ijn pair'ng the flavor of the finished art icle. If it is found necessary to color butter, aiinatto should a]trays be em employeii, as this has not a deleterious effect upon the butter. Colostrum must not on any account be mixed with milk to be made iuto dairy products, as- the high percent ago of albumen in colostrum will cause but ter and chcese to have a putrid flavor. During tile first fen- days the milk of a, newly calved cow should go to feed the calf, and any surplus be utilised for pig feeding. Winter barley is groivri for green food.

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 20 August 1915

"Ambrosine.") Time was when no little child went out without a veil. Jt seems a weird proceeding to-day, and has little to justify it from the standpoint of health, but as far as the skin itself is concerned, the protection thus, afforded had cer tain points in its favor. A golden rule is never to permit water to touch tho skin for some little time before going out and after coming in. This is most important, and there can be no doubt- that the com mon nursery habit of scrubbing tho little faces just before they go out is responsible for a vast amount of mis chief. Instead of this, when the wind is very cold, or if' the child is to go in a motor for instance, a really good cream should be rubbed in, just tho tiniest film of it, and afterwards, a tiny application of nursery powder made, this being removed ever so gently in its turn with cotton wool. Jn this way an effectual protection will bo given. . On coming in, if the little face look* dirty, as it very often does, let tho cleani...
