No More Indigestion. Wonders Achieved by New Product [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

- No More Indigestion. Wonders Achieved by New Product It seems reasonable to. suppose that in a short time there will be no more indigestion or dyspepsia. The old style "digestfves" such as bismuth, pepsine, charcoal, soda, etc., which after all are 'nly tem porary in their effects, are rapidly becoming discarded in favor of simple antacid, known to chemists as bisurated magnesia, with the re sult that physicians are being called upon to treat fewer cases of stomach trouble than ever before. This is not so very surprising when it is re membered t~at according to avail able statistics, over 90,p.c, of all stomach troubles are due to acidity. Bisurated magneia may -eadily be obtained from any chemist at a small cost, and half-a-teaspoonful taken in a little water after meals will immediately neutralise all harmful acids in thg stomach, pre vent fermentation, and thus render the food easy of digestion.

A SIMIPLE RIEMEDY.

In responso to this advertisement a distracted tenant immnediately forward ed the money demanmded, stating thalmt his place was overrun with vermln.

A GREAT FAVOR. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

A GREAT FAVOR: The young man was leaning on the gard:n gate chatting with the object of his I fections when the latter said, un hesit:lting!y:-'"I am going to ask a greet faivour of you.'" "It is alre:idy granted," he ansncrcd, devotedly, "'A very great favour," sllhe repeated, as if doubtful of the propriety of stating it. "Ycou're sure that you won't think it presumptuous or forward of me ?" "Never, he answered. "I glory in this evidence of your tnrust and confi dence. Only tell me what I can do for you." "'Well," she replied, with revident reluctance, "would you mind not leasing on that gate? F:ither painted it this afternoon, and he will bo awfully provokedl-if he has to do it all over again."

AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE Reviewing the subject of agricultural scicnce in Great Britain, the outlook, says Professor Wood, is distinctly hope jul. New fertilisers were coming ,:to the market, as, for instance, the ?r - ousproduots made from ' atmosol ric nitrogen. New varieties of farm crops were being produced by the Piiat breeding Institiuto at Cambridge, nd elsewhere. Finally, the soil surveys on which the colleges had seriously cei barked would assist -in defining 1hle areas over which such results were ul plicable. It-only remained for itose who wero responsible for the conduct of field trials to increase the accuracy ot the results, and the steady accu:iula tion of a mass of systematic and scien tifio knowledgo was assured. It v auld be the business of the advisory staffs with which the colleges had recently been equipped by tho British Board ot Agriculture and tihe Development Conm mission to disseminate this know ,lge in practical form to the farmers f this oountr~y.

MANURES FOR POTATOES. WITH A BRIEF HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

MANURES FOR POTATOES. WITH A BRIEF H]ISTORY. (By B. Harrison, F.L.S., in "Th1 Land.") The potato (Solanum tubersum, L,. vis) is one of our most important food products, and its development had cul tivation hlave- made rapid strides since it was first imported into Europe by the Spaniards between SO1580 and 15S5, an l afterwards into Great Britain bS Sir Waltera Raleigh. In "The Origign of Cultivated Plants," A. de Candalle says: "The potato is wild in Chili (Southi America), in a form whliolh is sti'l seen in our cultivated plants, and its cultivation was diffused before the discvery of America, from Chili to Ns v Grlanada. It was introduced, probably in the latter half of the six teentllh century, into that part of the United States now known as \Vrginia and North Carolina, and it was thie \Virginian potato that Sir Walter brought back to Ireland about tihe Came time as the Spanliards procured it. Its name in its own country was ''"olenawk," which Ihas an Indian sount. Evidently da...

.BLOW TO RADIUM EXPERTS Belief ill radium as a cure for can oer has got a great set-back by thle death of MIr. RIt. G. Bremner, a New Jersey Congressman, at Baltimore. MIr. lBremuecr had suffered from can cer in a form which had caused his case to be regarded ais hopeless, but Dr. Kelly, thle radium expert, express ed himself confident of a cure by means of the "Gamma" rays. The cass, therefore, was looked upon as a su premo teit of the claims put forward on behalf of the radium treatment of cancer. Eleven tubes of radium weore employed at a cost of £20,000, but de spite the utmost skill the dis(nso had a fatal termination.

WITH THE COOK. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914

WITH THE-COOK. To preserve eggs fill a wooden bo with ordinary salt, smear each egg over with olive oil, and place it in the salt with the pointed ends 'downwards. 1lggs treated in this way will keep for some two. - EFggs often burst when boiling if not qa lt fresh.: To prevent this, before boding make a puncture with a needle in large en.l oi egg, passing through hel' and the skin inside. Through this iracture the expanding gas will sake good its escape. Cut oil the rinds and soak rashers. of bacon in cold milk for an hour. Take them out and dredge well with flour (both sides) and fry in fat. This is a delicious improvement on the ordinary method of frying bacon. When unwrapping butter, lard, etc., keep the grease-proof paper whole, putting it away in a drawer or box to keep clean. It will be found useful to cover puddings for steaming, wrap ping, a roly-poly pudding previous to putting in the cloth, lining cake-tins, Spreading on baking-sheets, covering Jam-pots, etc. No matter ho...

SHE LEFT HER FEET BEHIJND. A good old Scotch minister, calling unexpectedly on a widow who lives in a cottage on the outskirts of the vil lae,. surprised her in the midst of washing a lot of clothes.

The Price of Meat. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914

The Price of Meat. A Yew South Wales exchange writes:-The astounding advance in the price of meat. which is making so many persons vegetarians in spite of themselves, is by no means unaccountable. Still less does it need the invention, of the imagin ary machinations of any "Trust" to account for it. If Mr W. E. Ab bott, of Wingen, a gentleman of high repute as to veracity, is to be' believed, the. causes are not so nearly far fetched as some deeply interested politicians would have us believe. Mr Abbott, raises and fattens sheep, and sells them. There fore, he knows what they bring. Also he knows the value of the by products, such as skins, tallow, offal and tongues. He sent to Sydney recently six trucks of prime cross bred sheep, which averaged 41lbs each dressed weight. The net re turn to him, after deducting com mission, freight, and other charges was 13/5 per head. The skins, tal low and tongues would be worth 4s per head, so that what he got for 541bs of prime mutton was 9/5, a...

THERMi WAS PLENTY LEFT OVER. One Sunday morning a certain young pastor in his first charge announced nenrvosly : "I sill take for my text the words. 'And they fed five men with five thou sand loaves of bread and two thousand fishes.' " At this misquotation an old parish ioner fromn his seat in the amen corner said audibly: "That's no miraolo-I could do it myself." "Thle young preacher said nothing at the time, but the next Sunday he an- sounced hoe same text again. This timn he got it right: "And they fed fire thousand men on fire loaves of bread and two fishes." He waited a moment, and then, leaning over the pulpit and looking at the amen corner, he said: "And could you do that, too, Mr. Smith ?" "Of course I could,'.' Mr. Smith re plied. "And hlow would you do- itP" said the preacher. "With what was left over from last iunday," said Mr. Smith.

THE PROPERTIES OF HEAT. School Inspector '(to sharp boy): "What are the properties of heat?" Boy: "The chief pToperty is that it expands bodies, while cold contracts them."

"But if you aint done notihing, then, I asks rou. what is this 'ore orowd follerin' you for?" o

CHARACTER IN CHINS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914

CHARACTER IN CHINS. A pointed chin is said to be a sign of craftiness, wisdom, and discretion. A soft, fat, double chin shoes sen suousness and an Indolent tempera. ment. . A flat chin shows a cold, hard sa. ture; a small chin indicates weakness, wann of will power, and cowardice. A retreating chin is a sign of silh. ness, and, if the brow be shallow, to imbecility. Where the space between the nose and the red part of the lip is short and very- sharply cut,it indicates re-. finement and delicacy of perception, but not much power. There is no force of intellect where this space is usually short. A rather long but not flat upper lip denotes an eloquent person. A very long upper lip, which is flat, and which belongs to a straight, or formless, or too thick-lipped mouth, is a sign of a low and vicious tvpo of eharaoter. A square and massive chin shows strong and determined will
