CORK PAVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 26 June 1914
CORK PAVEMENTS. A new cork pavement is favorably re garded by the municipal authorities in various cities, it is noiseless to the tread, but at the same time durable. It is a variety of asphalt paving, in which cork is substituted for the sand of the ordinary kind, preventing slip periness, and deadening to an even greater gegree the vibrations from pass ing vehicles. Snow does not freeze to it, and as it is non-absorbent its qualities seem much superior to those of wood pavements. Tt is said to "stand" on heavy grades on which the ordinary asphalt cannot be used at all, and still afford a perfectly safe footing. For schools and hospitals it would seem to be the ideal pavement, especially for courtyards, playgrounds, and streets around the building. For these pur poses, the noiselessness and. cleanliness of the new pavement give it a marked advantage.
SPIES ON THE FRONTIER. PLOT TO BLOW UP RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 26 June 1914
SPIES ON THE FRONTIER. PLOT TO BLOW UP RAILWAY. ;Rheims, which is in the middle of the champagne country, as well as one of the most important military centres of France, has been thrown into a state of great excitement by revelations which were made to the police regarding the invasion of the eastern frontier by Oer man spies, and the organisation of an amazing plan to stop, in case of the sudden declaration of wart the mobili sation and movements of the French army around Rheiins. A dispute be tween a French dragoon and a couple of Germans led to a free fight, which re sulted in the whole party being taken to the police station. There the dra goon explained to the commissary that he became very angry because the Ger mans wanted him to desert, and offered to provide him with means to leave his regiment or to act as a spy. It appears that.the two Germans ar rived at Rheims a few months ago, and were employed by a local German cut lery firm, andi it has been ascertained that the comp...
"MANNERS MAKYTH WOMAN." ("Sydney Morning Herald.") [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 26 June 1914
"MANNERS MAKYTH WOMAN." ("Sydney Morning Herald.'"') To the modern woman, the extreme mniodern woman, huinility is no longer a virtue. Unselfishness may be crimi nal, because it may tempt others to be sellish. Self-effacement is silly. She must, as a duty, develop her individu ality, must assert her rights,-sometimes spell them with a very large B, and enforce respect for the claims of her sex. Does she always benefit herself, her associates, and society generally by so ordering her life'? May it. noe be pos sible that in some cases she does her own character a permanent injury by the process, and at the same time makes , her neighbors uncomfortable. The question is involved. Pondering the problem, I went to towni, and there met. some illustrations which will be useful when we resume discussion. The first was in a tram ear. The car was not full, but the compartment I sat in was crowded. Nevertheless, a loud-voiced woman pre ferred it, and pushed in. Without any apology, she sat down...
A DOLL-LIKE MENU. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 26 June 1914
A DOLL-LIKE MENU. Miss Winifred Harper Cooley, natio nal president of the Associated ClubSs of Domestic Science (America) recent ly tried the experiment of feeding for a week on concentrated preparations. She breakfasted on essences, lunched on powders and tabloids, while she found her dinner in cubes and tubes. Having decided to consider meats, vbgetables, and sweets out of reach for the time being, she set about stocking her larder, as if she were thinking of a drug store instead of a pantry. She found all kinds of chem ically prepared foods, beginning with pulverised soup and ending with des soeft in capsules. Describing her mar keting foir the experimental week, Miss Cooley said it was like shopping for a doll's house. The week's provisions turned the scales at 2 lb. When inter viewed after the experiment, Miss Cooley said: "1 have proved that taking one's meals in about the way a physician's prescription is taken, regular doses of a given size at given times, sustains life, kee...
TEACHING OF EUGENICS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 26 June 1914
TEACHING OF EUGENICS. Speaking of the "Progress of Euge nics" at the Royal Institution, Dr. Saleeby said that America had made the most thorough-going investigations, but the results, valuable though they were for the time, were based on in sufficiently scientific foundations, and would have to be done over this side loose thinkers, ready to trace every thing to hereditary, had laid down the most stringelit laws for the eugenic con duct of society, so much so that one might almost say that no one whose ancestors had died from any cause should be allowed to marry; but the scientist knew that the day was still distant when he could speak with au thority. The investigator of eugenics must wait upon the teachings of the anthropologist and sociologist,

SHEEP AND DOGS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 26 June 1914
SHEEP AND DOGS Our correspondent, whose letter on the above subject appeared in last issue, sends the following further remarks on the subject: P mr re.mrkad to his neighbor t',e , :hes dy "Y.u have only lost two Ssheep, you are lucky," he being one of those who got rid of the last of his sheep that tl'e dogs had left. If people knew the penalties of the IDog Act and that it would be enforced, Sthy. would be more careful and not keep m 're than they could feed, and so do a- y with , g. that feed themselves by hunrting on their own.

SHEEP TICK. LIFE HISTORY AND EFFECTS. ENORMOUS ANNUAL LOSS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 26 June 1914
SHEEP TICK. - LIFE HISTORY AND EFFECTS. ENORMOUS ANNUAL LOSS. South Australian farmers arc credited with being about the most progressive in the Commonwealth, and in some respec's they undoubtedly merit the compliment. In one or two directions, however, a large percentago of them reveal a lack of en terprise and common sense which sadly belies their excellent reputation. Again and again attention has been called to the tremendous loss sustained through the ravages of tick in sheep, yet the efforts made to eradicate the pest are, comparatively speaking, only isolated. and spasmodic. A VALUABLE TREaTISE. In the circumstances, therefore, the fullest publicity should be given to at, extremely valuable and comprehensive treatise on " The Sheep Tick," which bas been contributed to the latest number of The Agricultural Journal by the Government.Veterinary Lecturer (Mr E. Place), the School of Mines Wool In structor (Mr Henshaw Jackson), and the Chief Inspector of Stock (Mr T. H. Williams)....
ADVICE TO PIG BREEDERS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 26 June 1914
ADVICE TO PIG BREEDERS The Dairyr Expert of South Australia (Mr P. H. Suter), recently lectured at Millicent on the subject of " Pig Breed ing," and his remarks should give food for thought to all persons interested in theo rearing-and fattening of the pig. To illustrate the difference in profits from well and badly bred sows the lecturer said ithat, assuming that each produced two litters in one year, a good sow pro duced 20 bacon pigs, valued at £3 103 per head, or £70, and feeding expenses, including £5 for keep of sow, and £805, for the feeding of the progeny, -left a profit of £30. The inferior sow pro duced 12 young pigs, worth £3 7s id per head, or £40 O10s; and with £5 for maintenance of the dami, and £21 for the feeding of the young ones, the net profit was £11 10s. The instability of markets is frequent ly blamed for the erratic interest taken in the subject. This might result from over-production, but more often was due in this State to the fact that heavy supplies were o...
WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 26 June 1914
WOMEN'S INTERESTS. (By "Ambrosine. ") All the new coats and costumes are 'fashioned to show open-fronted collars and low-cut vests, which prove so be coming to the majority of wearers. The only drawback to this delightful fashion is that it tends to roughen and redden the part of the skin so exposed, leaving an ugly mark when evening dress' is worn. To remedy this a new preparation, introduced in the first place to whiten and soften the hands, will be found invulnerable. This is made in the form of scent, and a few drops rubbed into the skin night and morning does wonders in removing redness or roughness and preserving the natural whiteness of the skin. Indeed, the little dressmaker of to day finds her hands full of work of this description just now, as a great many women are taking advantage of Fash ion's latitude in this direction, and iu stead of buying expensive frocks are having their old ones unpicked and dyed, or cleaned and covered with dra peries of lace or ninon to meet th...
