STRANGE COINCIDENCES Scientific and Literary Parallels. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 30 April 1914
STRANGE COINCIDENCES Scientific and Literary Parallels. In the lives of most of us coinnci dence has played a part. Probably nine .out of every ten people can re call events and dates which, co-incid Jng with one another, are a source of wonderment. There are some coinci dences, however, which are- of such a character as to call for more than casual comment. In the November issue of the "Strand Magazine," for instance, there is a photograph illustrating a phen omenon only visible in the tropics— that of sunshine at noon when no sha dow is thrown by objects exposed to the sun's vrays, the explanation being that the ship upon which the photo graph was taken was at the moment in the exact nadir of the sun's zenith. The penomenon was observed and re corded by Mr. W. B. Gibbs in latitude 15 deg. South, in February of last year, and it is a singular coincidence that precisely the same phenomenon was witnessed in 1881 or 1882 by Cap tain W.' M. Gibbs, of Cardiff, at aboui the same time of ...

WINTER CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 30 April 1914
WINTER CARE. The season is at band; that Is the hardest on our ever faithful friend the horse. , . The raw,; damp, windy or extreme cold weather, together with a little neglect, may cause the loss of a valu able horse. When a horse comes in wet from work or drive, rub him well and cover with a warm woollen blanket. Always change to /a dry .' blanket when the horse has cooled. Rub the legs well with a wisp of straw or a towel. Every horse is more or less warm when he comes, in from a drive. Never strip off the harness or saddle and let the horse rush into a feed of oats or a trough of water. Never give water or oats to a liorse until-he has been in the stable some time, and has had some hay. ■ This is a sane and safe practice and much loss can be avoided by en forcing It. Change the bit of the horse with the sensitive mouth. Take off the check, or let It out. Try a large rub ber-covered bit. If the horse "drives on one line," look to his teeth at once; a sharp tooth is usually the ca...

How To Cure Indigestion The following letters will be of in tense interest to sufferers from Indi gestion:— Prom Mrs. D. H. Cole, 70 Keiglitley road, Subiaco, W.A. "For mauy years I suffered from Sequent attacks of indigestion, follow ed by pains in the chest, severe head aches, 'sleeplessness, 'biliousness, con stipation and pains under the shoulder blades. I could retain little on my sto mach, £nd vomited frequently. I tried y variety of medicines "With very little ?ood result. I happened to read one )f Warner's Safe Cure pamphlets, and seeing in it how others had taken War ner's Safe Cure "with beneficial re sults, I decided to try that medicine. I obtained great relief from the first bottle; in fact, from the first few.doses I took. After taking Warner's Safe •Cure for a few weeks I was quite re stored to health.

VETCHES OR TARES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 30 April 1914
VETCHES OR TARES. Vetches or tares are of two distinct kinds—those sown in the autumn for spring or early summer use, and those eown in the spring which come in after the winter sowing is used up. There are few crops which yield such a large amount of succulent green food, though perhaps for special' pur poses other crops are preferable, but! for general use and under all condi tions tares cannot be beatem The amount of seed required per acre is about three bushels of tares and one bushel of oats 01^ rye, the latter beim,' sown to keep the tares off the ground somewhat and so prevent rotting in wet weather. In order to gain the full benefits from growing this green crop the sow ings should be made at different inter vals, beginning as early as possible, when the land can be prepared, so that successive cuttings are obtained without allowing them to become ripe. Tares are more suitable for soiling purposes than grazing,as this latter plan is very, wasteful, much of the food being, tr...

HOW DYSPEPTICS CAN EAT WHAT THEY WANT WITHOUT PAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 30 April 1914
HOW DYSPEPTICS CAN EAT WHAT THEY WANT WITH OUT PAIN. In the vast majoity of cases, stales a leading specialist, in digestion, dyspepsia, and other so called stomach troubles are in 110 way due to the fault of the stomach itself, but almost en tirely to fermentation of the food contents, ami the resultant for mation of aeiil and gas which irritate and intlaine the delicate lining of the stomach, and un naturally distend the stomach, walls, causing displacement of the vital organs and dangerous pressure on the .heart and lungs. He estimates that 'JO per cent, of all stomach pains, either acute or chronic, are directly or indirectly due to acid fermenta tion; all of which he has proved can he avoided by neutralising the acid and stopping the fer mentation by means of a. simple antacid, known among and ob tainable from all chemists under the name of bisurated magnesia: • half a loaspoonl'ul in a little water immediately after eating, effectively preventing the sligh test indication of f...
THE BUSY BEE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 30 April 1914
THE BUSY BEE. Winter is close upon us. In the coolest of our districts bees have al ready retired, and before the mont.n is out the retirement -will be general. During the warmer portions of the days, especially It the sun is bright, the bees will still venture out, but they will not wander far from home ii last month's advice has been at tended to, i.e„ if they are 'supplied with. sufficient honey to carry them on till spring, or the coming breeding season. If bees are forced to go for aging on bright winter days, the sud den atmospheric changes prevent the return of many, and a good supply of food in the hive is the only remedy. I* also forms one of the best-methods to keep up the warmth of the hive. On every occasion when the weather is bright and drying,, remove the wraps, etc., from the hives, and spread them out to dry. External dampness produces internal dampness, which is one of the most prolific causcs of di sease. • Just before sundown return the protections to the hives. ...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 30 April 1914
IX. The letter staggered Hugh, and his perplexity increased the more he thought upon it. Well done or ill-done, he felt it his duty to let Leila know exactly what had happened, and to let her know immediately, If she charged him with a breach of trust, he knew he would 'not defend him self with succesB, for had he not pledged his word to her, and would a woman believe him? Upon the oth er side was the wisdom of Geraldine. How shrewd she had been; how quick to do the right thing! He began to see that all bis heroics in the prison were so much vain-glorious nonsense, and would never have stood the teat of reason. It would have been mad ness to have carried away the lad upon the yacht, and opinion would have condemned 'both man and wife. Geraldine had solved the riddle. --Hr had yet to learn what pri^e of Leila's affections he must pay'for her wit. Would Leila condemn him. He re membered her sweetness, her despair, the gentle sorrow she had made so brave an effort to hide from him. And...
CHAPTER XIII. The Price of Silence. I [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 30 April 1914
CHAPTER XIII-. The Price of Silence. I Hugh returned to the Carlton Ho tel at a quarter to five. He was a little surprised not to find Geraldine. there; but he Imagined that she might have taken Desdy to the Hippodrome' or to Maskelyne's—she who had such little taste for all theatrical shows herself. Had she done so, it would have been a new victory for this ama-. zing child, who Beemed able to bring anybody to his feet, and had already conquered naif the staff at the Carlton —while he waB an eternal source of wonder to the matchless Joseph. Hugh was well aware of Geraldine's real affection for him, but he began to think that never would he have her favor for Leila, but for the untoward circumstances of these later days. There are some women who can live a whole lifetime upon a volcano of profound emotions, and yet never let the world see so much as a wraith of smoke above the inscrutable mount. Geraldine was just such a woman. There were circumstances whereun der she would have giv...

Leila and Her Lover. By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement-with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., London and Melt). (All Rights Reserved.) IV. It was lialf-past three when he ar rived ai the prison—oddly enough the first time he had entered one in all his life. All the great traditions of the house of Donald had to do with the activities of manhood, war, the chase, the camps and courts of kings. He had known Aberfeldy Castle for a home since lie had been a little lad, had found his childish kingdom on the wild moorland or by the rugged sea shore. He knew little of cities, less" of the sordid phases of twentieth cen tury life. Loudon had been for him a vast theatre wherein he had seen the show from the boxes rather than from the stalls—while of the pit he had but [lie vaguest impressions. To siicli a man a prison stood at the nadir of life's purpose. He remember ed once seeing a poor woman in Aber feldv who had returned from Edin burgh gaol, and he recalled the fur tive" home-coming of t...

"I interviewed Andrew Carnegie" in Brussels," said a newspaper corre ; spondent; "the great little man talk ed, of course, about peace. : - "He told me that peace must be preached gently,, affectionately. You can never convert people by enraging tbem. You "can't fight for peace. "He said a peace advocate of the fiery, virulent bitter school made a speech one night at a banquet in >Pittsburgi and when he'd finished an old man-shook him by the hand and said:— " 'That waB a fine speech, sir.' " 'Thanks. Glad you like It." " 'Yes,' said the old man, 'I liked it first rate, but, excuse me, sir, what are you for—peace or war?'"
