Foul Breath [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 July 1915
Foul Breath The old saying that "distance lends enchantment" was never more aptly to the point than when applied to those people whose breath is laden with evil-smelling and offensive odours. Many persons appear most attractive at a dis tance, but produce a feeling of pity and disgust when close to, because of the condition of their breath. For instance it makes little difference how beautiful a woman may be, or how charming her manner, if her breath is foul; her charm is gone, and she is at a disadvantage whenever she comes in contact with other people. Foul breath in wo man arouses in man a feeling of re pugnance and a desire to get out of the company of such a woman as quickly as possible, and even women will avoid her. It is, therefore, im portant for every woman who val ues her personal attractions to take such care of herself that this un pleasant and unnecessary complaint is avoided or corrected. Men, wom en, and children who are troubled with this complaint will drive their ...
A TRIP TO MOUNT WELLINGTON. ITS SCENERY AND FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 July 1915
A TRIP TO MOUNT WELLINGTON. ITS SCENERY AND FUTURE. (By J. J. Caldwell, Department of Mine*) Mount Wellington district is situ ated in the northern part of the almost inaccessible portion of the diocese of Sale, in North Gippsland, and about 50 miles in a straight line north from Sale. The mountain itself, which is 5363 feet above sea level, occupies a position on a high range which projects south from the " main divide." This range separates the watershed of the Wellington River on the west from that of the Avon River on the east. The surrounding country, especially in the vicinity of the Wellington River, provides picturesque scenic grandeur which renders its description difficult. To the student of nature there is an unlimited field for observation, and to the geologist many intricate problems which await investigation and solution. The locality is approached by rail to Hey field, a place that, from a commer cial point of view, is regarded as being solid. The land surrounding Hey...

ARE THE ALLIES REALLY WINNING. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 29 July 1915
ARE THE ALLIES REALLY WINNING-. Once more, in "Life" for August, Dr Fitchett gives us a wonderful review of the lighting of the month in Europe and on the sea. In the course of one section of this review Dr Fitchett frankly admits that the month has been one of disappointments. In his usual vigorous and picturesque style Dr Fitchett then outlines the fighting of the month on both fronts and in Gallipoli. Having done so, he pro ceeds to point out the bright spots in the landscape snd to anajvse the dis appointments. The result is that he shows us very clearly that in reality the balance during the month has pipped in the Allies' favor." It is a practical and heartening pronounce ment that gives the reader a wonder fully clear idea of the war.

MEDICINAL PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 5 August 1915
MEDICINAL PLANTS. There is sure to bo a scarcity of me clieunl plants this year-especially tliose grown on the continent. Belladonna, henbane, and foxglove arc three of the principal plants required. Aconite root, although less used, has hitherto been almost exclusively imported from Germany at a price at which it does not pa yto grow the plant in Great Britain. Afc the present price, how ever, it would pay to cultivate it. In the damp peaty soil of Scotland, it would grow exceedingly well, as it r naturally a plant of damp peaty pro ei'.-ities. Camomile flowers, for our o\vn supply of which we have hitherto been largely dependent upon Belgium and France, grow well in any damp, grassy soil, though, curiously enoiy.h they form double flowers where there 16} good drainages. The flowers when open reqiRre to oe protected from tlie rain and gathered on a dry day; but if this can be done in Belgium, the care and foresight of these peopl* may nfc lea*t be copied in England.
EXPLOSIVE DARTS AGAINST ZEPPELINS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 5 August 1915
EXPLOSIVE DARTS AGAINST ZEPPELINS. Mr R. F.Robertson , of Dublin 1ms produed an invention designed for the destruction of Zeppelin balloons by aeroplanes. It consists of a steel dart fitted at its rear with fishhook like pro jections. The dart is hollow, and con tains an explosive which burns with a fierce sharp flame. When such a dart is dropped from an aeroplane upon a Zeppelin or other gas balloon. the hooks catch in the fabric aftel' the point of the dart has pierced it, and the ex plosive charge is ignited by pulling backward of a friction detonator. As tho explosion takes place inside the gasbag, its effects are expected to be disastrous.
COLONIES IN THE PACIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 5 August 1915
COLONIES IN THE PACIFIC. Tu tlie course- of a paper read before the Royal Agricultural Society ou March S, entitled '.'European influence in the Pacific/', 1513-19U," Sir "Everard im Thurn (formerly high commissioner of the Western Pacific) said that he was in Australia ivhen war was declared, and even no w he could hardly think calmaly of the outburst, which ho know was common to Now Zealand, of grim delight at the sudden coming of the day which gave Australians and New Zealanders iho opportunity to wipe out, as they so promptly and thoroughly did, every trace of that invader of the j pacific, whose comparatively recent intrusion they had eyed with deep distrust from the first. . In conclusion, Sir Everard said that, assuming the expulsion of tlie German from the I'acifio to be final, he hoped1 that the opportunity for readjustment would he utilised to come to a friendly arrange ment with our French allies for the as signment to one or other of the two Powers of the now jointly adm...
The He[?]field Herald, PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY MORNING DEPLETION OF DAIRY HERDS. WARNING TO DAIRYMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 5 August 1915
PUBLISHED BVKKY THURSDAY MORNING DEPLETION OF DAIRY HERDS. WARNING TO DAIRYMEN. Doubtless many readers are aware that at the present time there are many buyers from the North anil Western districts of Victoria in Gippsland with the object of obtaining dairy cattle. It is reported to us that substantial purchases have been made alieady, and it is quite likely big offers will be made to induce Gippslanders to dispose of their dairy cows during the next few weeks, for we understand that en quiries made outside of the S'ate are not promising. As a rule, men are&lt; tempted to dispose of their cattle pro viding good prices are offering, with out looking very far ahead, and if selling by Gippslanders is indulged in to any extent, it will mean a severe blow to thn dairying industry in Gipps land. That they would be very un wise is obvious, for prices promise to be very high during the coming season. Reports received from L'indou suggest this. A representative of one large selling c...
NOT RECOMMENDED. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 5 August 1915
NOT RECOMMENDED. There was a terrible commotion in a cosy homo a few days ago. The young husband, had como home with a raging headache, and his wife was nearly dis tracted with anxiety, it was the first time he had been ill since his wedding a few short weeks before, and the first time the bride had been given a chance to display the nursing" ability she had boasted so much about during their en gagement. Sho fussed around, rubbed his head, patted his pillow, and swathed his countenance in bandages, but still he groaned dismally. Then she started after hor doctor's book, and in a short time returned with a dark brown drink that looked any thing but appetising. The young hus-. band protested against drinking it, but the dear little woman insisted, and fin ally he gulped it down. He made a terrible face, he gasped, spluttered, and shivered over the nau- , Seous dose. At last he gasped out: J "What in the world are you trying to do. Poison me " "Why, no dear," said the young wife, and ...
SPORT AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 5 August 1915
SPORT AND THE WAR. (By Silas Snell). Tho decision of the Victorian Foot ball Association, and also a number of the country clubs, to abandon or cur tail their fixtures for the season is qui e i'n accordance with popular feel ing. A recruiting poster issued shows up in painful antithesis the spectacle of a madly exciting football match and tho needs of our boys in the Gallipoli Peninsular, who are culling to their comrades to help them. St. Paul, the upostle of the Gentiles, had a vision one night, in which lie saw a man standing on the European shore, beckoning to him, and saying, "Come over to Macedonia and help U3." He went, and that was how Christianity WHS spread throughout Europe. In like manner we see a vision of the Australian standing on the shore of Gallipoli and crying, "Come over and help 11s." And they are going, in tens of thousands, and that in lioff Islamism is going to be overthrown in Europe, and tho leign- ,of Turkish ciueity and oppression ' abolished. At the same...
THEY ALL SWIM. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 5 August 1915
THEY ALL SWIM. Addressing the audience, the lec turer said: "A frequent cause of drunkenness is. the desire to drown sorrow. No sor row can be drowned though, in any such way. "jOnee in Paris I found a promising young friend seated on a-cafe terrace swallowing glass after glass of ahsintlie hurriedly. ., : "My boy,! 1 I cried, "what are you doing?" . "My young friend made a gesture ol: despair, and looking up at me with . hlearedi and sorowful eyes, he said: "I am trying to dvowu a care that has learned to swim " HE WAS BAD. First Man: "Yes, I heard you wos in th' 'orspifcal. "Was yor very bad?" Second Man: "Bad? I should think I was bad. - Why a pal of 'mine brought me a bottle of .beer, and I couldn'-tr-as much as look at it." (Perhaps he shrank from a hair of the dog that bit him).

PLANT TISSUES THAT BEAT LIKE HEARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 5 August 1915
PLANT TISSUES THAT BEAT LIKE HEARTS. In certain plants (says a writer in tho! Scientfi'o American)' wo observe what arc known as spontaneous move ments Gyrams (or the telegraph plant) of India is a conspicuous example. Tho lateral leaflets execute pulsating move ments, which are nofc unlike the ryth mic movement of the heart-.
