FEED AND WARMTH. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914
rEED AND WARMTH. That exposure to cold renoeisf it necessary for stock to sustain them selves bi an increased consumption of food is evident enough from the effects of exposure to a low tempera ture on even our own appetites. The natural temperature, of a cow is about 100 deg.-Many degrees hicher than the ordinary temperature of our climate. Hence there must be some Irovision in the animal's body to sustain the heat which the colder air constantly withdraws from it. The fuel for the production of this heat consists of those incredients from which nitrocen is absent and carbon 'resent. It has been found by scien tists that the carbon (14 oz.) on an average daily consumed by man is much below that consumed by a cow (70 oz.). The lower the temperature to which we expose stock. the creater will be the demand for carbon. or (cod. to retain the natural tempera ture. The cnantity of food (or fuel) necessary to sustain the constant and natural temperature of the body must vary accodrine to ...

ALL CLOCKS TO KEEP TIME. Every day at noon Greenwich time is telegraphed to the post-offices of the chief towns in the kingdom, but in ac cordance with a reform that is now con templated by the Post Office, for the outlay of £2 a year, busincss houses public institutions, and other large or ganisations can have all their clocks set at Greenwich time every hour. Master clocks nwill be put up at all distributing centres, and these will transmit hourly impulses to the pro mises of persons requiring the service. The cost of synchronizing clocks in this way nwill depend, to a great ex tent, on the number of subscribers in each district. The rates chargeable within a radius of two miles of the district centre are £6 a year when there is only one subscriber on the circuit, £3 a year when there are two subscrib ers, and £2 a year where there are three or more subscribers. Already-the post-olffices are receiving numerous ap plications from the public for signals for the purpose of synchroniz...

WEDDED IN A WHITE SMQKING JACKET. Among-the host of New York's s. 'z brides thie palm for originality is unani mously accorded- to Miss Katherine Burritt, who was.recently married to Mr. Harold H. Deeming. The couple were married in the studio of the bride's parents, and tihe keynote of he ceremony was unconventionality. The bridegroom wore a smoking-jaokot of white vicuna, finished with white -a tin, and his trousers were adorned with broad stripes of white silk at the sides. The bride wore a long-trained, sleeve ess mediaeval gown of white satin char meuse, olaboratey trimmed with ropes of pearls, and a cap similarly ornam ented. She had no orange blossom or bouquet. Her robe concealed her figuro when she stood, but revealed it at every movement, and was declared by the 500 faslhionableo guests to be superbly beau tifiul. The studio was illuminated with thou sands of candles instead of electric lights, and the walls were draped with Oriental hangings. The conventional orchestra, p...
MEAT VERSUS VEGETABLES FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914
MEAT VERSUS VEGETABLES. FOR FOWLS. Six generations of liens were fed ex clusively on raw flesh by Mr. F. Houssay, by way of experiment, which lasted seven years. At first the ao tion of the meat seemed favorable, and at the end of two years, says "Cos mos," the increase in the size of the birds and improvement of. their laying and plumage would have led to the con clusion that this diet was benefloial. As time went on, however, there were signs of poisoning and organio fatigue; deforming arthritis appeared, only cured by a return to vegetables. All the organs were greatly modified, and heredity of thesa changes was beyond doubt, as they were found on chicks; before they were old enough to be af fected by growth. Mr. Houssay also noted that the flesh diet was particularly injurious to the germs and consequently to the breed. In fact, the percentage of fer tile eggs fell from 100 to 6.85 during the experiment. The vitality of the chickens likewise decreased continually, and the number...
HARNESSING THE TIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914
HARNESSING THE TIDES. According to Mr. C. A. Battiscomnbe, 1.S.E., in the next century steam pow er and electricity for driving trains will be altogether superseded. lie says that the day is not far off when cities will be lighted, meals cook ed, and locomotives driven by tidal power. This idea does not seemn in any waray unworkable, for few people realise to what extent tidal power is put every day of the yearain propelling ships, and, in the ense of tidal basins, in raising vessels of enornmous tonnage. There are a iumber of places on the West Coast of England between Pen zance and Hlolyheadl that are excel lently :adapted for central tidal sta tions, and sub-stations might easily be established at fifty-mile, inter\-vls. Mr. Battiscombe believes tlhat a tidal unit mtight be obtained at a cost.of only about one-eighth of a penny, inclutding everything, as compared with fromtt 1d to 2d. under the power systems now in use.
CORESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914
CORESPONDENTE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS. Sir.-At a meeting of the Sey mour Ladies' Swimming Club on Wednesday night it was decided, owing to the present position of the box being unsuitable for their requirements, to dispose of same. As a large number of boys in Sey mour East take a great interest in swimming, it was suggested that they be given the first opportunity of securing the shed for their own use, and a motion was carried cfer ing it to them on condition that they paid for its removal to some other part of the river. We, there fore, take this opportunity of ad vising the residents of that locality that this offet will remain open. until the 25th inst., and if not availed of, the shed will be sold. It is believed that the boys have sufficient. funds in hand for the purpose, and we trust they will carry out this proposal. Yours, etc., M. TAYLOR, Hon. Sec. L.S.C.

Avenel. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914
Avenel. From our own Correspondent. The trustees of the Recreation ground intend, at an early date, to further improve the reserve and make provision so that the pavilion and anti rooms are kept in a clean and wholesome condition. Although the school committee has done a lot of good work since their inauguration and are a more live body than were the old Board of Advice, still a lot remains yet to be done that can be accomplished by little effort. An observer can not but admire the fine lot of young ladies growing up that are attend ing the local school, who are no doubt receiving a good sound edu cation according to the programme of the school, yet these boys have not the opportunity of learning any trade, such as agriculture or car pentering, that wvill fit them to take their walks in after life. Of course it will be argued that there is no centre in Avenel for teaching these branches of trade, but in regard to learning the knowledge of carpen tering, which should be an accom plis...
