THE PEOPLE'S CHERRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 December 1915

THE PEOPLE'S CHERRIES. In various parts of Austria cherry trees are planted by the roadside, and are chiefly intended for the benefit of pedestrians. The road from Brunn to Olmutz, forty miles in length, is bordered with cherry-trees. This useful kind of hedgerow has many parallels throughout Austria. Any passenger may eat of the fruit of these trees except those few about which the owner has bound a wisp of straw in token of reservation. This sign is generally respected. A South London resident, whose garden runs down to the railway line, has hit upon a novel recruiting advertisement. He has hung out two old petticoats with a .poster reading: "If you -won't help your King and country now you had better wear these." - ' The story is told of a gentleman who, when he takes a glass of wine, always shuts his eyes as he lifts his glass to his lips. One day someone asked the veteran why he always shuts his eyes in the way mentioned. "Well," he said, "I am afraid if I looked at it my mouth...

THE HOUSEHOLD. SELECTED RECIPES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 December 1915

THE HOUSEHOLD. SELECTED RECIPES. Beef, Mutton, or Lamb Scalloped.— Mash eight or nine potatoes while hot, beating them till light with a quarter of a pound of butter and a little cream, adding two beaten eggs.

A TRYING ATMOSPHERE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 December 1915

A TRYING ATMOSPHERE. The difficulty of maintaining life in the high altitudes of the Andes is described by Professor Alsworth Ross in an article headed "Peru, the Roof of the Continent": — Life at Cerro de Pasco, nearly a league up, is s trying as life under a diving bell at the bottom of the ocean. The newcomer gasps for air like a stranded fish, and wakes up at night gulping mouthfuls out of the thin atmosphere. Three quick steps put you out of breath, and after climbing a flight of stairs you must sit down for a rest. No employe is sent up by the com pany unless he has passed a physi cian's examination, but occasionally one gets blue in the face and has to be sent down forthwith. Thus the Inca "Chronicle" often has such items as "Jack L., who returned here last April, has been sent home with his heart machinery in bad shape." The young fellows play tennis and ball, and even indulge in track ath letics; but the pace must be very slow. Singing is not popular, for you cannot get the...

AGRICULTURE. MANURIAL REQUIREMENTS OF FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 December 1915

AGRICULTURE. MANURIAL REQUIREMENTS OF FRUIT TREES. it must be remembered that fruit trees have to find their nutriment in the subsoil, and not in the surface soil, and it is therefore necessary to have this soil in a thoroughly fit con dition to promote root growth, on which the top growth of our trees and their fruit production depend. It is imperative that the soil be thorough ly sweetened, so as to permit nitrify ing bacteria to work, by ploughing the surface and breaking up the sub soil, and by draining and liming. It must be remembered that the whole secret of successful fruit-growing de pends on inducing the roots to find their nutriment deep down in the soil. Not only have they a larger feeding area (therefore' requiring less feeding), but they are a'ble to withstand droughts better. The deeper you can aerate the soil by ploughing, subsoiling, and draining, and the sweeter you can make it by liming (which neutralises acids and permits them to be carried out of the soil by the...

Even on the Mountain Top. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 December 1915

Even on the Mountain Top. Smith Jived in a neighborhood where there were many pianos, phonographs, barky dogs and sweet children, and finding that sleep was impossible he began to look around for a quiet retreat. Finally he found it on the top of a mountain, and great was his happiness. One day, however, he appeared in town looking extremely sad, and his friends quickly questioned him as to the cause. "It's no use, boys," he responded, in a dejected voice. "It is simply a waste of time to fight the inevitable." "Sounds all right so far," said one of the party, "but you will have to come again." "Yesterday a young man came up on the mountain," explained Smith, "and pitched a tent near my bunga low. This morning he told me he was going to spend the summer there learning to play the violin."

INDIGESTION, DYSPEPSIA, GASTRITIS, THEN ULCERATION. «-— WHY MAGNESIA SHOULD BE TAKEN AFTER EVERY MEAL. A flushed face may be the first notice able symptom of indigestion, bat disre gard this warning and soon there is un mistakable pain, for indigestion is a pro gressive ailment. At first the symptoms may be allayed by pepsin, bismuth, or soda, but these things do not overcome the acid in the stomach, which is usually ; the underlying cause of the trouble, and consequently the acid accumulates and the occasional attack oE indigestion be comes chronic dyspepsia. The dyspep tic is always particularly liable to gas tritis, and gastric ulcers in the stomach are only too often the forerunners of peritonitis and death. That is why phy sicians lay such stress upon the import ance of keeping the stomach free from harmful acid, and are continually advis ing chronic dyspeptics as well as those who only experience occasional attacks of indigestion, to kjeep a little pare biaurated magnesia hand...

Ltd., London & Melbourne. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER V. After-Events. Violet was scarcely surprised when she heard how her cousin had be haved, and told Hilda as much. "Colin was always frivolous and shallow," she said, sorry for the girl's wan looks and sad eyes. "He thinks only of hi nself. That is what sur piises me." "That he thinks only of himself?" asked Hilda listlessly. "Not exactly. What I mean is that. I truly believed • he loved you, aiul for his own gratification would marry you." "He never loved me. I don't be lieve he loves Mabel. He thinks only of himself, as you say, Miss Trevor. The way in which he has treated me proves that he is little influenced by the doctor." Violet looked doubtful.

How is the War Going to Affect Charistmas? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 December 1915

How is me far Going to BflBC! GMas? This seems to be the note struck in the Christmas issue of " Everylady's Journal," just to hand. Firstly, it ap pears that this is going to be a more serious-minded Christmas than usual; we are going to think more of giving others happiness than of having a good time ourselves. Then it is going to be a less dressy Christmas, and the note of the fashions will be quality and practica bility rather than smartness and show in ess. We are apparently not to forget that it is, after all, the season of good cheer, but the recipes offered, the home-made Christmas gifts described, and the enter tainments suggested in "Everylady's Journal" smack again of the practical and economic. By way of special articles, (Mrs) Nettie Palmer, neice of Judge Higgins of the Arbitration Court, who has just come back, writes of Christmases spent in England ; Miss Ellen Davis describes the packing of 50,000 billies for the Australian soldiers in the trenches; whilst Professor...

The New Cure. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 December 1915

The New Cure. In a city boarding-house some time ago the guests were working away at the evening meals when Mr. Jones broke through the din of clattering knives and forks. "I was reading of a new cure this morning," he remarked, glancing around the table. "It seems that you take off your shoes and stockings and walk barefooted " "What do you think of that cure, -Mr. Jones?" eagerly interrupted the landlady, who had also read the story. "Do you really think that walking barefooted through grass \\ill make one strong and healthy?" "Well," smiled Mr. Jones, strenu ously trying t cut a piece of meat, "it seems to have made this beet pretty tough." "I do not believe that I have a true friend in the world." "So you have been trying to borrow money, too, have you?" Tramp. Please, mum, I haven't a friend or a relative in the world. Housekeeper: Well, I'm glau there's no one to worry over you in case you are hurt. Here Tiger! Go fbr him!

The Truth About Belgium Under the Huns. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 December 1915

Mr Carlyle Smythe, the well-known writer, traveller and entrepreneur, is just returning to Astralia from a trip through the war countries, during which he has written a number of excellent articles for " Life." The latest of these appears in the January issue of that magazine, just to hand, and it deals with a subject that is of the greatest interest, and yet is little known—i.e., Belgium under the German heel. Mr Smythe himself has lived in Belgium and knows the country and its people intimately, and during his stay in London he had the good fortune to meet a Belgian who as a " naturalised Dutchman" is able to come and go quite frequently between London and Bruges. The combination of this in formation and Mr Smythe's knowledge results in one of the best articles " Life " has published this year. This issue of " Life " also includes a set of Eour masterly articles by Dr. W. H. Fitchett, m which, as usual, he deals with the fighting of the past month and the trend of the situation as...

CONSERVE THE NATURAL PASTURE. Stack Silage. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 December 1915

CONSERVE THE NATURAL PASTURE. ^ Stack Silage. By G. H. F. Baker, Dairy. Supervisor, in th.e "Victorian Journal of Agriculture." - In such a bountiful season as this, every means that can be employed of saving the surplus growth of na tural herbage and fodder on old cul tivation paddocks to tide stock over leaner years should be adopted. One cheap and easy system of doing this is stack silage. By this expeditious method a great amount of green fod der can. be conserved almost indefi nitely without sacrifice of any of its succulence. If wild oats, trefoil, clo vers, crowfoot, barley grass, kanga roo and other varieties of grasses, be treated in this way, a reserve of fod-, der is established which will un doubtedly be found welcome when the seasons again fail. This, in addi tion to value procured, is the most ra tional system of eradicating wild oats and other objectionable weeds, as it catches them before they shed their seed. A stack of silage is built in the same way as a stack of ...
