THE VALUE OF IODINE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914
THE VALUE OF IODINE, Among the drugs of particular value to the stockmnu we wish to mention iodino, in combination with alcohol, as a tincture, and with lard or vaseline as an ointment. The totanus, or lock-jaw, bacilli on teo~ with the parasito or infects the wound mado by scratching, It acts in the absence of oxygen, being what is known as an anaerobic germ. Air and oxygen kill it, and so it is best to open up a wound of any sort to which airl otherwiso will not gain entrance; then swab freely with iodine. Tetanus often kills horses that ?Mn ply have collar or saddle sores. The ownier daubs the part with axle grease or some snmear, salvo or oilt nment, thereby exrlihding air. Better saturate the wound with tincture of iodine, or with a1-500 solution of cor rosihe sublimate, which is deadly to all germs and the spores of some of the worst diseases, notably anthrax. Iodieio tincture is also.of great value in the treatment of all glandular swell ings and in lumipy jaw. Goitre on the ...
People Will Talk. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914
Peoplo Will Talk, You may get through the world, but 'twill be very slow If you listen to all that is said as you go; You'll be worried and fretted and kept in a stew, For mneddlceome tongues must have something to do And people will talk. If quiet and modest, you'll have it pro sumed That your humble position is only as snmed, You're a wolf in sheep's clothing, or else you're a fool; But don't get excited, keep perfectly cool For people will talk, Aind then ify ou show the least boldness of heait, Or a slight inclination to take your ow,, They will call you an upstart, conceit ,A, and vain; But keep straight ahead-don't stop to explain For people will talk. If threadbare your dress and old-fash ioned your hat Someone will surely take notice of . that, And hint rather strong thIat you can't pay your way; But don t get excited, whktever.they say For people will talk. If your dress is in fashion, don't think to escape, For they criticise then in a different shape You're ahoad of your ...
ACTION OF LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914
ACTION OF bLIME, The action of lime in the first placo is a mechanical one in altering the tex turo of the soil and those properties which depend upon its texture, ?uch as its absorptive power for Water, its tillago, etc. On a clay soil its action nity be il lustrated by the following experinent: If a small quantity of a heavy clay be mixed with water in ajly suitable ves sel, it will form a muddy liquid.. If a little limeo be added to this, anl the mixture well shitken, it will be noticed that the solid matters sing to the bot tom in a loose powder, and in a short space of time, is the water is poured off and the soil dried, it can be readily broken up by the lingers. If no limo had beon prcuviously added, the clay on drying, would form' a hard mass, ditlk'ult to break up. 'This action, which is due to the power that the lime has of coagulating the fine particles of the clay, is identical with what takes placeo on the larger scnlo when lime is added to the lield. 'The presence of l...

TO DESTROY SORREL. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 31 January 1914
TO DESTROY SORREL, Sorrel is a considerable nuisance in many cultivation paddocks, and farm. ers will he interested in learning par ticulars as to th6 best means of destruc tion, South Australian wheat-growers have eradicated this weed by putting on sheep to eat the plants close to the ground, after which the land is well ploughed and the sorrel knocked about as much as possible with the harrows and cultivator during the hot weather. A Tasmanian farmer gives the fol lowing helpful information for its eradication :-"I can guarantee a prac tical clearance, of the rubbishi if the land is treated with lime and some form of potash, Sorrel appears to come very strongly after using superphos. phato for several years, and the root formation thickens and strengthens, It is when it reaches such a stage that it is most difficult to got rid of, On the fallow I should use the spring-tooth cultivator freely during the hot wea ther, so as to kill the big roots by means of the sun's rays.

SECOND ELEVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 31 January 1914
SECOND ELEVEN. This eleven was weakened through the absence of seven of its players, whose p)laces were filled from the club eleven. The only interest in the game therefore was whether any of the younger players were capable of filling places in the higher elevens. Melbourne, batting the whole of Saturday afternoon and part of Monday, amassed the huge total of 4 for 416, chiefly through a lenient field, as each of the batsmen who scored gave chances early in their innings. Taylor 155, Onyam 102, and Slintott 133 were the run-getters. Burley 2 for 4 and Yeomans 2 for 9.4 secured the wickets, Unfortunately on the Monday the young players had very little opportunity of displaying their powers, as the wicket was in an almost unplayable condition. The only batsmen to reach double figures being Heron 21, Dunn 11, Yeomans 10, and Hamilton 10.
USE FOR FALLOW LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 31 January 1914
USE FOR FALLOW LANDS. It is questionable if one non-fallow ing wheat-grower could be found in any part of Victoria. Not only so, but also overy part of the fallow and four course rotation system, combined with sheep-keeping, is being steadily adopt. ed. The cleanness of the crops this year, and freedom from wild oats, sor rel,and other weeds (speaking goner. ally, of course, because there yre still a few exceptions) are noticeable as a direct outcome of the improved agri culture, The importance of "work ing the fallow" is no longer doubted, and the instanbes are increasing in which fattoning fodder for the sheep is being grown on the fallow, thus say ing the one-time loss,of a year under the bare fallow system, while keeping the land in heart by an annual nitro. genous re-fertilisation of the soil,

NELSON'S CHAPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 31 January 1914
NELSON'S CHAPLAIN. The "Death of Nelson is a scone well known to all-the dimly-lighlted cock pit, the dying hero, and Captain Har. dy listening to his Admiral's last or ders. On the other side is at stooping figure in black, less familiar, yet equally cherished by the great sailor Dr. Scott, his secretary and chaplain. A few years ago, some of the oldest inhabitants of Southmlinster (Fsex) could still renemenhm the "owd Iparson," and whose "Nelson relics" may still be seen in the church vestry, Dr. Scott was a tman of the world, intelligent, tactful, and a wonderful linguist, who had spenmt half his life afloat, and was highly estooeemed by the Admiral. One of Nelson's theories was that every scrap of paper was worthy of study, that no nau put pen to paper without betraying something of his real knowledge or real intentions. He would thus keep Scott in the cabin of the Vic tory reading foreign gazettes, neispap ors, letters, and despatches in every lan guage till exhausted nature co...
HIBERNIANS' CRICKET MATCH. COLAC V. METROPOLITAN. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 31 January 1914
HIBERNIANS' CRICKET MATCH. COLAC V. METROPOLITAN. A very pleasant re-union took place on Monday 26th at the Preston Park in the form of a cricket match between teams representing Colac District Hibernians and the Metropolitan Hiber nian Cricket Association. The latter, when visiting Colac last year, received a very cordial welcome, and were taken in drags to view the numerous sights of Colae, and were then treated to a sound drubbing on the cricket field. But not to be outdone the Metropolitans met the Colae boys at Spencer street station on Saturday, and after showing them the city escorted them to their hotel, arrang ing to meet again at 2 p.m. next day (Sunday) at the G.P.O., where they mounted drags that were in waiting to take them firstto visit the St. Vincent de Paul's Boys' Qrphanage, South Mel bourne. Bro. Caffrey received the visi tors most heartily and showed them through and explained the workings of one of the most marvellous homes of. Christian charity, where some 250 ...
HOBBIES GIVE ME THE PIP [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 31 January 1914
HOBBIES GIVE ME THE PIP Hobbyitis is worse than appendi citis, neuritis, or any other "itis." These can be cured, but hobbyitis is a malady beyond the surgeon's knife or the doctor's medicine. It is ex. cessive inflammation of thb possessive faculty. It' grips you, grows on you, over you and min you, until life is a burdon to yourself and others. It creates sol. fishness, wastqs one's life, ruins one's pocket, and, after all, what has been achieved ? Simply this; that some ob jects which before were scattered have been painfully collected in a heap, Yet parents are seductiveuly urged by certain scribes to see that their chil dren have a hobby. Are the writers stamp dealers, fretwork tool makers, rabbit and guinea-pig dealers? You try hard to prevent your child catching hobbyitis, knowing not onily that provention is better than cure, but that there is no cure. Then he catches it through the "Lad's Weekly,' or even, alas! your own favorite pen nyworth. lHis' bachelor uncle comes alon...
CRICKET. NORTHCOTE V. MELBOURNE. FIRST ELEVENS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 31 January 1914
CRICKEfr. NORTHCOTE V. MELBOURNE. FIRST ELEVENS. Very little interest is taken in this match owing to it not counting for the pennant. Northeote's team was weakened through the absence of Lug ton and Brown, and the opportunity was taken of playing Hiscon, a very promis ing left-hand bowler with youth on his side. Vernon, who has been batting consistently and well for the second eleven, was promoted and made 45 faultlessly. Northeote, batting first, were only equal to the modest score of 151. This came chiefly from the bats of two men, as Chesswas and Vernon, in a useful partnership, added 99 runs. Chesswas played another of his fine innings for 61 not out. Vernon 45 was the only other batsman to make double figures, the remainder putting up a very feeble resistance against the bowling of O'Donoghue and Iremonger, who got 6 for 59 and 4 for 45 respectfully. Mel bourne lost 1 wicket for 81, Johnson, who made 33, was clean bowled by His con, Vaughan 44 not out. No play was possible on ...

Mistaken Idenity. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 31 January 1914
Mistaken Idenity. The death of Sir John IBatty Tuke, the great mental specialist, recalls a story lie was fond of tolling against himself. Seome repairs were in progress at the privato asylum run by Sir John, and tho laborers engaged on the work had boon warned that on no account were they to talk to any of the patients. One morning, Sir John himself went to see how the workmen wore getting on, and he made one or two sugges tions to the foreman. All he got was a stony staro Sir John repeated his remarks, and again the man treated them with silent contompt, Sir John, naturally enough, lost his temper, and asked the man what lie mean by such conduct, "Awa' wi' ye, do delirious ould deov ill" lie retorted. "I canna be bothered wi' yo. Bult Im sorry for ye a' the same." SSir John found lie had beon mistaken for one of his own patients I

"How long has your poor husband been dead, my good womanP What number of children have you? Are any of themn working? If so, what amount of money are they earning al together?" were the questions lhe fir ed, like a shot, at the slatternly wo man who answered his summons.
