BEWARE OF DAMP REFUSE. Many of the lesser ills of life, such as headaches, indigestion, loss of appe tite, and drowsiness, tan be traced to the inhaling of sewer ga.s. Children especially often suffer from diarrhoea, through their playing about the grat ings which lead -down to tho sewers. It must be remembered that not only is sower gas harmful in itself, but it is. usually the bearer of germs of various and serious diseases. Puro air is the strongest protection against these germs, aud lieuco cleanliness and good ventilation are the first;- requirements of any house. Tho contents of the ash pit are often a sourco of bad smells if ! they be allowed to get damp. This j often happens when people throw moist rubbish about it. The ashpit is in tended only for dry matter which can not be disposed of iu any other way. Vegetable aud fruit refuse, aud boues, ought to be burned at the back of tho kitchen fire.

LEMON CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 17 September 1915
LEMON CULTURE. There arc few plants that require more euro in tho preparation of the soil and in piauting than the citrus family, and, as these are being in ore extensively planted than hitherto (particularly the lemon), a few hints may prove useful to intending planters. Tho soil in which leuous are to be planted must have freo drainage, so that no stagnant water can aceumulato at tho roots. Tho sorl, too, must be deeply and well worked and .enriched with food on which the roots can thrive. All the citrus family luxuri ate in decayed vegetable matter, so that well-decomposed manure or other decayed matter should bo well incor porated with the soil beforo planting. The lemon succeeds best in deep, rich soil, in which sand or othr gritty mat ter is well mixed. Fow plants require more care in planting, and certainly few that succumb moro quickly from bad planting or neglect, In planting carc must bo taken in every instance not to cover the roots too deeply. When plant ing in soils of ...

Sir, -Woola.ua:', we learn Iro.m its mouthpiece, Cr Steenhoklt, .-upiroj to be the ke.ul centre of everything. The shire of Phillip Island and Woolamai, i: hopes, is no longer to bear that old established name, but is to b-j called Woolamai' only. A recent pron.-al to re-name San Remo emanated from the same restless settlement Wh;i."e will this vaulting ambition end ? When the late Sir Henry Parkes impudently pro posed that the Commonwealth be named New South Wales instead of Australia he was promptly jumped upon. Surely there are seven men in the Shire Council who can be relied upon to vote against a proposition which, if carried, simply means ex penditure without any possibility of accruing benefit. As a boy I was once taken to see Shakespeare's tragedy of "Othello," when I heard one of the charact...

A Mother's Duty. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 17 September 1915
A Mother's Duty. It .'.has often beeu said that a mothers work .is- never done. It is equally true that-a mother's anxiety about the welfare , of her children'is never relaxed. This is largely owing to conditions which are quite beyond her control. Her back need only be turned for a moment: when something happens. ITer child lias fallen down and received' a cut or bruise or some other injury, or may even have been burnt or scalded.

HOVELL v. SAN REMO. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 17 September 1915
HOVELL v. SAN REMO. THE EDITOR POYVJ.ETT EXPRESS.) Sir,-I am pleased to see that my suggestion to change the name of San Remo to Hovell is attracting the atten tion of historians. " Corineila " is averse to the memory of Hovell per petuated, and gives a very far-fetched reason in support of his contention. Although Hovell was one of a party that endeavoured to form a settlement at Westernport, he was probably no more responsible for convicts being in £hat party nor is " Corineila " for' the pre sent world wide war. Sar. Remo might have been a most respectable old gentle men, but why saddle his name on to an Australian town? Hovell, although he might have quarrelled with his comrade over a frying-pan was a sturdy character and a true Australian pioneer. Hovell is more appropriate name than San Remo. Let the residents of the shire of Phillip Island and Woolamai adopt it as soon as possible, and be truly Austral ian and British e'er it is too late. Yours etc., SETTLER. Woolamai, Sept. ...
