DANGERS OF A SCRATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 27 May 1914

DANGERS OF A SCRATCH. Scarcely a day passes over that many persons do not, in some way or other, get a scratch, a small cut, or a braise that may break the skin. In most instances not the slightest at tention is paid to this beyond the tem porary annoyance of the pain and the possible irrit'Uion when the hand3 art put into water, or some subsequent blow in the same spot brings an ex clamation on account of the hurt. Of floating disease-germs, especially Sie air of cities and towns, and an injury oi this sort, be it ever so slirht, might furnish excellent breeding ground for some deadly bacteria. It *s a good pliin always to keep a bottle of prepared carbolic acid and glycerine, arid frequently touch all bruises or sore spots with it. This is one of the most convenient and effective germicides imaginable. It is believed that many cases of fever and other serious ailments can be con tracted by floating germs coming in contact with abraded skin. Once snugly lodged in this most congenia...

ADVENTURE WITH A MOUNTAIN LION. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 27 May 1914

iDVENTUBE WITH A MOUNTA» LION. L-here ib one animal (says a v.'ritei rt» the 'Lob Angeles fimes') I prefer lo hunt above all others, and that ta *ne mountain lion. I wish my readers could see the marvellous leaps made by this hugt cat when hard pressed by a pack of hounds. Nothing short of a good pack can run him; 30 and sO feet he makes at a bouncL.iising like a winged creature high above the grease-wood and chapparal; ground scent for the dogs is barely left, so daintily does he alight; the hounds must use the slightly tainted air foi their guide. 0 It is a w-ell known fact that the mountain lion stands in the greatest terror of dogs. When chased by them he will first try lo outrun them; fail ing in this, he will take to the nearest tree. But when there is no tree of r& fuge, and the lion comes to bay, then look -out. One stroke of the powerful Eaw means a dead dog,- and unless the unter comes to the rescue with rifle or revolver, the savage brute will slaughter the whole ...

WESTERN CIPPSLAND PIG FEEDING AND FATTENING. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 27 May 1914

WESTEftN CIPPSLAND PIG FEEDING AND FATTENING. (By J. L. DOW.) The correspondence received by "The Leader" informs us t'hat there is a de- ' sire for information on this subject in the way of practical everyday details of , the kind obtainable from such acknow- '■ lodged authorities as have proven the correctness of their practice by the re- j munerative character of tlieir results. ! The little farm which forms the subject I of these notes is situated 011 the railway | line between Warragul and Port Albert, 1 and on it there are constantly kept from 145 to 150 pigs, from which an average of about. 45 are drafted off fat every two months. To maintain this average 22 brood sows are kept, whose ordinary litters are from seven ;to eight each. While the pig farming operations are admitted to pay well, still the owner asserts that a much larger margin ot profit could be obtained by purchasing stores for fattening instead of breeding, • but it has been found in stores purchas ing that the ...

CAMPERDOWN RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 27 May 1914

CAMPERDOWN RACES. The winter meeting of. the Camper down Turf Club was held, on Saturday last, when a good average crowd was present. The threatening weather and the over-racing in the district during the past few months doubtless had something to do with a slight falling off in the receipts as compared with last year. Racing opened with the Hurdle Race, for which Minneboro, Gellert, Countess and Kirk Brae started equal favorites at 4 to 1. Minneboro won, but was protested against by the rider of Coun tess for interference at the second last hurdle, and after a lengthy sitting the stewards decided to award the race to Countess. The well-bred Alfius was made a hot favorite for the Trial Han dicap, with Glenkirk next in demand. The winner, however, turned up in Mr. R. N. Crawford's much improved Por tico, who ran home an easy winner from Sports Girl, with Glenkirk third. Only a trio saddled up for the Steeplechase, and Coradgil won easily from Cuach, the other starter, Storm, coming t...

GOLFING MATCH. MORTLAKE PROVE VICTORIOUS OVER TERANG BY 8 ACES. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 27 May 1914

GOLFING MATCH. • ♦ — . MORTLAKE PROVE VICTORIOUS OVER TERANG BY 8 ACES. Eight players of the MortlaVe Gojf-Club journeyed to the Mt. Noorat links on Saturday afternoon when a match was played against a similar number of players of the .Terang club. The result of the match was a splendid win for Mortlake by eight aces. Terang's strength apparently lay with three players, viz., Cochrane, Osburne, and Baxter, who secured 14 aces lead for their side. The last five players, however, did not score an ace, the remaining players of the visitors being too strong. The match was immensely enjoy aule, and hopes of another similar contest are expressed.

EMPIRE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 27 May 1914

EMPIRE DAY. ; i J The spirit and pride of-Empire are being implanted deep in the hearts and minds of the school children of Australia by the cele brations on Empire Day, and the Earl of Mealh, who can claim the credit of originating them, will rank in history as one of the far seeing statesmen who have helped to make the Empire great. His ideas have developed on lines and to an extent that probably few anticipated. The first celebration was characterised chiefly by a eulogy of the life of the great Queen Victoria, under whose reign the Empire made such wonderful strides. She will never be forgotten, but as each year comes round it brings with it changes that, uncon sciously perhaps, but certainly shape the celebrations to some ex tent. The sentiment of Empire as expressed in the celebrations deepens each year, and the appeal it makes to the loyalty of the in dividual becomes stronger. No one visiting almost any school in the State on Friday, and seeing and hearing the children, coul...
