FARM AMD DAIRY NOTES. At a meeting of the Wholesale Milk Producers' Association held in Mel bourne last week, it was unanimously decided to raise the price of milk (start ing from Inst Monday;, owing to "the high price oi dairy cattle and the dry ness of the season." A contributor to one of the English reviews writes exhaustively on the economic renaissance which, is taking place among the peasant fanners of Italy, which with the "small holding in isolation" is becoming "the small holding in association." as it is in France, Germany, Denmark and Ire land. By co-operation tEey are rapid ly transforming their condition, and throughout whole provinces the peas ant has never been more prosperous than now. They buy what they want in quantities at wholesale prices, cul tivate their land with improved imple ments, according to scientific methods, and sell their produce in the best markets. Co-operative dairies are now numbered by hundreds, and in some places these have increased the income...

TANJIL SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 14 April 1904
X tanjil south. A correspondent at Taajil South •writes us as follows:—" I was present at a social lwld at Willowgrove a few evenings since, and.I was really dis gusted at the manner in which some of the male dancers turned thftce part ners in the set dances, nearly swinging the ladies off their feet. It is evident to dancers who have been " taught" the art of terpsichore that the above individuals' have more knowledge of going through a " cor robboree than the etiquette of up-to date-dancing. These individuals take hold of their lady partners as if they were a side oi beef, instead of the delicate frame of a young girl, Again they neither dance to music or time, anu go through the dances as if , they were taking part in a >- r Kangaroo dance. The masters of ceremonies, as a rule have, voices like a fog-horn, and make the ball-room hideous by the manner in which they bellow out the names of the respective diwicea and the instruction to dancers. 1 maintain it is no part of the dut...

FRUIT AS MEDICINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 14 April 1904
FRtJIT AS MEDICINE. In past ages instinct has taught men 1 to eat apple sauce with roast ducks. But to-day science tells them why they did it—simply be cause the acids and peptones in the fruit assisted in digesting the fats so abundant in this kind of food. For the same reason at the end of a heavy meal we eat our cooked fruits-, -and when we want their digestive action - more developed we take them after dinner in their natural uncooked state for' dessert. Science also tells us that fruit should be eaten as an aid to di gestion of other foods much more than Cultivated fruits, such as apples, gears, plums, peaches, grapes, Btraw erries, and cherries, contain on an analysis very similar proportions of the same ingredients, wnicn are about i per cent, of flesh-forming albumin oids, with,over eighty per cent, of wa ter. Digestion depends upon the action of pepsin in the stomach. Fats are digested by these acids and the bile from the liver.

THE EMPTY CRADLE. ' I was called oil once to sell by auc tion a lot of household furniture be longing to a man and his wife Who had been married four or five years. All I knew about it was that a death', somewhere necessitated their removal from my town, and as they had no money, they were compelled to sell their effects to get enough to move otL Well, I was having some fun in my young and foolish way, guying, ana» bantering, and making brilliant and witty side remarks on the articles aa they came under the hammer," said an auctioneer.

Fire if You Dare. GOOD USE OF A FLAG. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 14 April 1904
Fire if You Dare. GOOD USE OF A FLAG. In Havana there was one evening a great row in the streets, and a man was killed. Everyone ran away except an Englishman, who did not see why ; he should run off, but stopped to see ; what he could do for the wounded man. The city was then, as it often was, under martial law, and in a few minutes a party of soldiers came up I and walked the Englishman off. He | was tried then and there by a sort of drum-head court martial, and con demned to be shot the next morning at eight o'clock. j He managed to get the news convey ! ed to the English consul, and at 7.45 o'clock the next morning the consul appeared in his coach ana four, cocked hat and sword, all his orders, etc. The shooting party were drawn out, 1 and the prisoner was there too.
