FROM PAPUA. WHITE WOMAN ON PATROL. TANGO NOT THERE YET. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
FROM PAPUA. WHITE WOMAN ON PATROL. TANGO NOT THERE YET. Mrs. Greenland, who is at present in Sydney, has spent just eight months in Papua on the Mambare River, which division her husband was magi strate. It is away up near the Get man border, and the only other whi - woman lived 70 miles away! "But we knew each other quite well" Mrs. Greenland said, "although we actually met only three days ago, here in Sydney. They had plenty ot eegs at the other station, and a na tive boy would often arrive with a lit tle gift from my unseen friend. u seemed so strange meeting tor the first time across a hotel dinner table after having exchanged so many let ters through native carriers.' ."What did you do all day "Well, in the morning Id mss round, thinking I was very busy wit.i odds and ends, then I'd read, and on the station there is always something happening, so that time never hangs on our hands.

MOTOR CAR MONEY. EMPLOYER GIVES TO EMPLOYES [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
MOTOR OAR MONEY. EMPLOYER GIVES TO EMPLOYES An industrial experiment that is" causing much controversy in the world's press just now is that of [fenry Ford, an American motor car manufacturer, who is distributing I0,000,000dol. of profits among his em ployes. These profits are distributed [n weekly portions in the pay envel opes of the workers, and with the wages bring the ordinary worker over £1 per day. Detroit, where the Ford plant is situated, has been inundated since the announcement was made with seekers after employment where the high wages are handed out, ac cordingly the payment of double the ruling wage has had a most unsettling effect upon other employers' labor in the motor industry. Ford has highly specialised all operations in his fac tory, with the result that each man of the 15,000 employes has some small task allotted him, which practice en able him to perform at great speed; but the argument against this sys tem is that it tends to turn the man into a mere automati...
Items from Punch. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
Items from Punch. The Governor-General's alleged hyphen is creating confusion. Of ! course, like a true Scot, Sir Ronald Muuro Ferguson does not hyplieu ate his name. As announced soon after his appointment, he very much prefers that it should not be hyphenated. But the leading publicity dealers iu Australia began to hyphenate as soon as their cable editors got the name. Cables do not say whether a name is hypeu ated or not. They leave the hyphens to chance, or the temper of the cable editor, and apparently every cable editor in Australia thought that a Governor-General must possess a hyphen. Sir Ron ald's staff has tried to catch up the mistake, and various requests have been made that the dasli be dropped. But the dash seems to have come to stop; "Argus," animadverting on the verbosity of Pasliamentarians, says: —"There have been a few honor able exceptions in each Parliament, but the rule is that each member tries to say all he knows about | every subject he discusses." This is n...
Surgical Wonders. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
Surgical Wonders, Dr Alexis Carrel, of the Rocke feller Institute of Medical Research, whose achievements were rewarded with the Nobel prize in J912, ad dressed the American Surgical As sociation, and described a series of successful-experimental operations on the valves and orifices of the hearts of dogs. Dr Carrel declared that the object of the operations is that they will ultimately be applied in human surgery. He asserted that some day surgeons will be able to cauterise lesions of the valves in human subjects aud repair them as easily, or almost as easily, as he himself has been able to do in ex perimental operations on animals. The astonishing feature of the ope rations is their technique. The chest wall liaviug been opened the pedicle of the heart—that is, the mass of blood vessels aud ligaments by which it is suspended—is seized by a dozen forceps whose metal jaws are covered with soft rubber. This shuts off all circulation from the heart itself, so that (lie organ hangs as ...
Selling Fat Stock by Weight [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
Selling Fat Stock by Weight The Chicago method of selling fat stock by weight is .being agi tated for in Scotland. "The pro priety and utility," the "Scottish Farmer'.' writes, "of selling fat cattle in this way is 110 longer a debatable topic, and there is now a demand that store cattle and sheep should be sold in the same way. The Department of Agri culture for Scotland has called a conference of those interested, and it is earnestly hoped that all classes will be adequately represented at the meeting. What is wanted is that breeders, feeders and salesmen should come together, and indicate in what ways effect can most suc cessfully be given to the desire to have the weighing system iutro duced. Of the reasonableness of the procedure there can be no sort of doubt. Therefore let there be a full meeting, and let another step be taken in the application of sound commercial principles to agricul tural practice."

The Pjg a Grazing Animal.

Admitting tliat pigs must be fed differently from other slock when housed, yet grass is still to them a natural food, even as it is 10horses and cows. Pigs graze as dose to the ground as sheep. It is sometimes stated that pasture de teriorates under cows, but whether this be so or not, pigs benefit pas tuta^e, and rapidly improve poor quality soil.

No More Indigestion. WONDERS ACHIEVED BY NEW PRODUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
No More Indigestion. WONDICRS ACHIEVED BY NEW PRODUCT. It seems reasonable to suppose that in a .short time there will be 110 more indigestion or dyspepsia. The old style "digestives" such as bismuth, pepsin, charcoal, soda, etc , which after all are only tem porary in their effects, are rapidly becoming discarded in favor of a simple antacid, knowu to chemists as bisnrated magnesia, with the result that physicians are called upon to treat fewer cases of stomach trouble lhau ever before. This is not so very surprising when it is remembered that, according to available statistics, over ninety per cent of all stomach troubles are due to acidity. Bisnrated magnesia may readily be obtained from any chemist at a small cost, and half-a teaspoouful taken in a little water after meals will immediately neutra lise all harmful acids iu the stomach, preveut fermentation, and thus render the food easy of digestion.

Uncertificated Horses. A WARNING NO'fK. The chief veterinary officer (Mr W. A. Robertson) publishes bis seventh auuuai report on the cer ficatiou of stallions in this month's issue of the "Agricultural Journal." The article is well worth the keen est study of breeders and others in - terested in the draught horse_ in dustry.
