THE FATIGUE POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
THE FATIGUL POINT. Nothing is so beneficial to a. man or a woman as to relax every muscle of the body, to lie, or at least sit still with closed eyes for a short time every day. Many people cannot sleep, many can only spare a quarter of an hour for this rest, but if these would make a point of taking just what they can, they would soon find a marked difference in their health. A human being can work every day up to the point of fatigue, without feelinh any the worse, in fact, it may be sa:d tha, hundreds would feel iifinitely better if they had to work to the fatigue point every day of their lives. They would not then complain of loss of appetite, or in ability to sleep. But thte ill effects if they arise from want of work, also attack those who habitually pass the fatigue point. To rest just before get ting really tired is one of the very best methods to prevent a breakdown. If mental or physical strain is contin ued,, even a little too far for any con siderable length of time, dis...

THE LATEST BEAUTY BATH. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
THE LATEST BEAUTY BATH. The very latest beauty bah is that nomposoed of hot sea-sand. Some fa mous Parisian beauties have the sand brought direct from Trouvile in bar rels. Others place unhmited conik deice in the strong sea salt of Bun ., These baths are fairly expensive; but. then; it is clahncd that theyv oo intinite good to a certain quality of skin-that "mat"' whit.et skin which so often accompanies red-gold hair and a peach complexion The hot:sea-sand bath is prepare? in rather a peculiar way. A large sheet is placed on the ground and eovered thickly with smoking hot sand. Inen the "patient" is wrapped up in the sheet and quietly massaged. After five minutes the patient is rolled over and over a dozen times and then again massaged.

After the sea-sand-bath is over a strong hot-sea-water bath is taken, and this is followed by" a delicious douc...

HOW TO OBTAIN GOOD CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
HOW TO OBTAIN GOOD CROPS. An average crop of hay extracts from the soil about 50lb, of nitrogen, an equal quantity of potash, and 131b. of phosphoric acid. A question often asked is: Should a dressing of nitrogen be applied to the land? As a. rule, probably not, or to quite a limited ex tent. The clover which grows in the field and the bacteria which are active in meadow hnd may be trusted to col lect suffoient nitrogen out of the air to nourish not only the olover but the grasses. This is assuming that the meadow contains a fair proportion ofr clover; when such is not the ease and there in little clover, then a dressing of nitrogen is advisable and very advan t'ageous,. fi?e t.oro other plant foods, potash and phosphoric acid, should be liberally applied to meadows, especially if the field is poor in plant food. Kainit is a good form of potash, except in very heavy lands. and then sulphate of pot ash should be used. To obtain the best crops tho land should be well fed with potash u...

ULSTER CONCESSIONS. SPEECH BY MR ASQUITH. DISCOURAGING RECEPTION OF SCHEME. LONDON, Ma.oNDA. The Prime Minister made a further speech in the House of Com mons to.day on the subject of the Government's concessions to Ulster. He said that if the proposals were going to be rejected, it would be a mere waste of time to formulate I their details for discussion. He was not prepared to put a cut and dried scheme on paper a~s he wished to keep the disoussion to the main issue. If the proposals were ac cepted, the Home Rule Bill would require both administrative and financial adjustments. The Lord Lieutenant of Ireland would have no jurisdiction in the area excluded from the scope of the Bill.

.EEDERAL .DEFENCE. COST AND -EFFICIENCY. SSenator Millen, as Minister of De fence,,has spoken a-word of warning: When the people of the Common wealth turned ' their attention seriously to the matter of defence. they-called Lord Kitchener to their aid f-nd adopted his scheme, though it involved a very large outlay. -Lord:Kitchener's estimate has -been exceeded, and it is more than doubt ful whether the ends at which his scheme aimed have -been attained. Clearly Australia.cannot defend the Northern Territory till, there is' a Trans-continental line running from the populated South to the prac tically unpeopled North; the Com minsioners appointed to inquire into the construction of the proposed railway, put the cost of a broad sause line 'at £7.000.000. of a 3ft. 6in.,line-at £5;000,000. -Senator Millen is naturally alarmed by the financial outlook, but he is not an alarmist and, whilst appeal ing to military experts to keep out lay within reasonable bounds, has not the slighest doubt ...
LOCAL INDUSTRIES. WHITE-WORK DISCARDED. JAM FACTORY FAVORED. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
LOCAL INDUSTRIES. t WHITE-WORK DISCARDED. JAM FACTORY FAVORED. It is nearly two years ago now that -the cry, " Industries for Mary borough" was first raised. Its birth was in the Borough Council Chamber, some of the municipal representa tives considering that, as district mining did not promise brightly for the future, an industry or industries of some kind should be established to keep things moving. Accordingly, then, meetings were convened, and a handful of business men assembled and talked the matter over. This was the beginning of the movement. Afterwards it had a varied existence. Several schemes were considered and dropped in turn, then the whole project rested for some time, and finally a white-work factory was de cided on, applications for employ ment called, and a committee de puted to obtain detailed information. That committee never met a public meeting again, the whole matter resting until it was revived by Cr. G. Frost at a recent council meeting. The outcome was the c...
FLOODS IN EUROPE. RHINE VALLEY INUNDATED. PARIS ALARMED. LONDON, MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
FLOODS IN EUROPE. RHINE VALLEY INUNDATED. PARIS ALARMED. LONDON, MoDAm Y. It would seem as though winter bad marshalled its forces for a final grand assault prior to retreating before the advance of spring. From east to west, Eurone has experienced extremely tempestuous weather within the past week, and the very heavy falls of rain have created an alarming position in many places. Violent gales continue to rage round the coasts of Britain, and the wildest weather prevails in the Channel. The Newhaven to Dieppe boat service has had to be sus pended. The Belgian steamer Bucarest is in distress off Pentre Head. Lifeboats have been launched to go to her assistance, and life-sav ing rockets are in readiness. Some excitement was caused at Ryde by the obsolete battleship Revenge breaking from her moorings and threatening the craft in her vicinity. She was, however, secured by tugs before any damage had been done. Heavy rains have caused floods in the Thames Valley, while many dis tricts el...
REUTER'S CABLES. STORM IN RUSSIA. APPALLING LOSS OF LIFE. TOWNSHIP'S POPULATION WIPED-OUT. VILLAGES DESTROYED. ST. PETERSBURG, MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
REUTEW'S 0ABLESo STORM IN RUSSIA. APPALLING LOSS OF LIFE. TOWNSHIP'S POPULATION WIPED-OUT. VILLAGES DESTROYED. ST. PETERSBURG, MoNDAY. Additional particulars have reached St. Petersburg in respect to the devastating storm in the Kuban dis trict (Northern Caucasus) on Friday night. It appears that an extremely fierce gale sprang up and raged for ten hours, A terrific downpour of rain accompanied the wind. Water spouts caused devastation in sixz villages between Eisr and the Kertsh Straight (which separates Eastern Crimea from the mainland). Many lives were lost at the seaport of Temyruk. Two especially grim tragedies marked the storm. A township largely, consisting of workmen's dwellings was overwhelmed by the descent of a wall of flood-water, and out of the 1000 inhabitants it is feared that only eight escaped alive. One hundred and seventy-six navvies employed on the Kuban railway were sleeping in their huts beside the line when they were wakened by the roar of the on-rushing flood...
THE SUFFRAGETTES. DOCTOR HORSEWHIPPED. RAILWAY CARRIAGES BURNT. LONDON, MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
THE SUFFRAGETTES. DOCTOR HORSEWHIPPED. RAILWAY CARRIAGES BURNT. LONDON, MONDAY. Fresh outrages by the Suffra gettes were reported to-day from many centres. As Dr. Devon, a Scottish Prison Commissioner, w a entering the Glasgow prison he was assailed by suffragettes armed with horsewhips. In the melee one of the women was knocked down, but no arrests were made. The assault was apparently in revenge for the treatment of Mrs Pankhurst at Glasgow. A number of railway carriages belonging to the Midland Company were set on fire by suffragettes at King's Norton (six miles from Bir mingham) early this morning. Six of the carriages were totally de stroyed, while three others were badly damaged. There has been a large increase in the cases of suffragettes interrupting church services by chanting their owrn prayers.
