LADIES' FLOWER GUILD. OPENED BY MR J. MENZIES, M.P. MAGNIFICENT DISPLAY OF FLOWERS. ASSURED FINANCIAL SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

LADIES' FLOWER GUILD. opened by mr J. menzies, m.P. - si magnificent di8flay of Flowers. assured financial success. A few months ago a number of pro minent ladies met, and the outcome of their deliberations was to launch a new idea, as far as Nhill is concerned, viz., the holding of an autumn flower show. Those present unanimously elected as their president, Mrs T. Shanasy. and the enthusiasm that was infused into the forthcoming event by their leader and Meedames J. Young, G. Mcintosh, and A.E. Turner, had the prevailing influence of induc ing many other ladies to exert them selves in bringing to a successful issue the initial exhibition. The committee drew up a large prize schedule of a very liberal character which had the effect of exhibits coming from so far afield as Mel bourne, Ballarat, and Clunes. The Lowan Hall had been transformed into resembling a garden garbed in its full bloom, and if Milton, who in such beautiful thoughts expressed himself when referring to the rathe p...

BACK TO THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

BACK TO THE LAND. | There are too many "dreamers and thinkers," And not enough tillers o£ soil; There are too many eaters and drinkers Who use up the products of toil; There are too many boosters and boomers, With manners too easy and bland; We're cursed with too many consum ers. We ought to go back to the land. There are too many getters and tak ers, And not enough men who produce; There are too many broad rolling acres Untouched and unfilled — out of use; We stick where the grime and the grit is, And the streets with the poor are a-swarm; We're crowded too much in the cities, We ought to go back to the farm. We've got to be workers and plough ers, • Who sweat in the fields like true men; We've got to make use of our powers To make the land blossom again. What, me? On a farm? And to stay there? Well, not for a bundle of pelf! I was trying to show you the way there, But I'll stick to the city myself.

TO PREVENT COLLISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

TO PREVENT COLLISIONS. In consequence of the frequency of railway collisons in various parts of the world recently, the directors of the Western (State) -Railway, which forms part of the Newhaven-Dieppe route to London, are conducting a series of experiments with a new de vice which, it is hoped, will render it impossible for engine-drivers unwit tingly to run past signals. The new apparatus, which, from its shape, is known as the "crocodile," is placed between the rails near the dis tance signals, and is so arranged that when the train passes over it con nection is made with the engine in such a way that a powerful siren on the engine at once warns the driver that the signal, although, perhaps, in visible through fog, is against him.

TWO WOMEN. From Mrs. M. Darcy, 1C3 St. Leonard's-road, Ascot Vale, Vic toria. " Some years ago, I began to sufr fer from various liver and- kidney troubles, arising no doubt from a severe cold I contracted about that time, and which nearly prostrated me. From thence on I experienced acute pain in the back and sides, and under the shoulder blades. The slightest pressure on the liver would cause me intense pain. I suffered like this for 'a long while without any prospect of relief, I having tried so many re medies without avail. As a last re source I decided to try a course of YVarncr's Safe Cure, which had been highly recommended to me by friends who had derived great benefit from taking the medicine. After taking a few bottles of Warner's Safe Cure my health improved rapidly, and I was soon effectually cured and free from all the pain and discomfort which has assailed me for so many years." From Mrs. Eva Sharrer, 24 Hanover street, Windsor, Vic. " Some years ago I was taken with vio...

FIGHTING FOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

FIGHTING FOGS. That London's "particular" — the yellow, pea-soup atmosphere which sometimes settles over the Metropolis and materially adds to doctors' bank ing accounts—may be abolished is the hope, held out by a French scient ist, M. Onderio, the head of the Lyons Observatory, whose novel rem edy is to bo put to the test at LyonB. The French city suffers almost as much from fogs as London, and AI. Onderio has formed the theory that these fogs are due to the enormous evaporation from the Rivers Rhone and Saone, as they flow through that city. This theory is shared by other scientists, who attribute London fogb to the vapor arising from the Thames, as well as to the excessive stroke. Whereas other scientists, however, have usualty proposed to banish fogs by attacking them when they have once been formed in the air, M. On derio proposes to prevent their forma tion by a very simple plan. His idea is to suppress Cle rising of the water vapor by covering the surface of the rivers with a...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. To prevent window-blind cords breaking, dust the cords, and then rub them over with a well-greased rag. The snapping is caused by friction, which impoverishes the cords, and ley are further weakened by the sut: and weather. It is an excellent plan to keep in the kitchen a bottle filled with equal parts of linseed oil and lime-water, to alleviate -the pain of burns. Shalce the bottle well before using the io ticn, and keep the burned parts from che air by covering- with lint. The best way to test silK is to cut off a small piece and burn it. If it burns out quickly, leaving a clear, crisp, grey ash, the silk is pure; but if it smoulders" and leaves a heavy reddish-brown ash it has 'been treated with chemicals, and will not wear well. A very good way to prevent a pracic ed wash-hand basin from breaking Is to paint along the crack with white paint; then place along it a piece of wide tape, the length of the crack. Paint well'over this, and when dry it will be as firm ...

WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. Gas and Bread Made From It. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. Gas and Bread Made From It. American and Canadian sawmills have discovered that the sawdust which they have been perplexed how to rid themselves of as a worthless encumbrance Is worth at least £S per ton. In Baltimore a chemist has perfected a process of extracting gas from sawdust, adequate enough to supply a city like Ottawa with light and heat at 5d. per 1000ft. This is thought to portend that around the great sawmills, which have been emp tying their dust into the Ottawa River, a variety of new Industries subsisting on- it are likely to grow up. In Austria, where everything in the shape of fuel is being carefully search ed for, sawdust is impregnated with a mixture of tarry substances and heated to the proper temperature; it is then passed over a plate of iron heated by steam, from which a screw conveyor takes it to a press., where it ia compressed Into briquetUs of the required size. The press turns out about nineteen every minute, weigh ing two-fifths of a...
