THE USE OF CONDIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914

THE USE OF CONDIMENTS. "It would appear that condiments are chosen to accompany those foods which are less digestible or which are richer than others. Mutton, for ex ample, is more digestible than beef, pork, or duck, and it is to these-three that mustard is generally added. Vine gar again is known to soften thle hard fibre of both - meat and vegetables; hence it probably renders such foods as crab, lobster, salmon, salads, red cab bage, and walnuts less tough and more digestible. Vinegar in dressing and sauces probably Ihas a similar action. As a rule, says the "Lancet," "the increased amount of soluble or extrac tive matters in a Tood is in a direct relation to its digestibilty and nour ishing value, not that the extractive principles -are in themselves nourish ing, but because they are appetising and promote thie flow of digestive juices. Bread and cheese and beer form a most enjoyable meal after brisk exercsie in the open country air, buit during sedentary occupation very little...

A BULLA FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914

A BIULLA- FARM. - By J. 8.~McFadzean (Seaier Dairy. Supervisor), in "Journal of Agriculture." The. growing .of lucerne is usually considered as concomitant with naitur ally rich..soil; so much so that, in the absence of suitable alluvial land, most people will not attempt to grow this fodder. The fact, however, is that ucerne will grow on. almos any laind except such,.as is badly drained; and,. once established, it will live through. very dry periods; but if repeated cut=: tings are expected, firom it during the warmer mnionths, a regular, supply of water is then necessary in its cultiva tion; with this provision, it is in the. warmer and drier districts that it flour ishes most luxuriantly. That compara tively poor land is capable of being made to grow prolific crops of lucerne has, in the Bulals district, been demon strated in a very thorough manner by ,Mr. G. D. Dickinson, of'Moonee Ponds. His farm, "Sherwood," is a 320-acre block situated on the north side of the Green Vale road...

FROM THE NEW BOOKS. I - HER INCONSISTENCIES. "A woman is never so disappointed as when she orders a man to behave, and-he obeys!" "(Sadie would not dream of 'phoning even her husband without first powd ering her nose." "She is a strange being, the Girl of To-day; she may have read, theorised, and discussed all the secrets of Heaven and Hell, .yet at .the first touch of real lips, the first- approach of real olve, she is once more the shy, virgi nal, wondering piece of innocence that has been satirised under the name, 'Early Victorian.'

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. t13y "Atbrosine.''") One of the latest fads among fashion able women is to have their backs-not hbacks made shapely and picturesque by eans of silks and laces and guinea Corsets-but the natural back, from the waist to the shoulders, photographed. Two or three years ago the ladies of Paris got tired of having their faces photograplhed. They took their shoes a.'d stockings off, and had their feet and ankles snapped by the mant with the camera. A few ladies, more daring than the rest, had their limbs repro duced on sensitised paper, and mount ed on fancy cards. Coloured hair is one of the fads which certain sections of society af feet. hiles laid down by experts de clare that green hair is suitable for brunettes, mauve is just the thing for blondes, rose-coloured hair may be safe lv wort by brunettes, as also magenta Coloured, but pink, purple and yellow ibould never be drettmed of except by fair women. It nuty be added that the hair in these instances is not dyed, w...

CLEANSING OF HULLS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914

CLEANSING OF HULLS. A new method of cleansing a ship's hull from growths likely to impede its progress was demonstrated in the West India Docks, London, on the cable-laying ship Faraday. Naval attaches from several countries Were present to watch the progress of the work. At present ships' hulls are cleaned by hand labour. The vessel has to be dry-docked for the pur pose, and valuable time is lost. By the new process a hull can be scrub bed whilst the ship lies at anchor for coaling or the shipment of cargo. It is claimed that a vessel 400 to 500 feet long, with an average draft, can be cleaned in a working day. The apparatus consists of an electrically operated roller brush, suspended by cables from a specially constructed barge, and made to press against the side of a vessel by the force of a screw propellor. The barge carries a very compact petrol electrio genera: ing set, and the power thus produced is made to operate the winches and the scouring brushes. Indicators are provided...

THE BRITISH SUBJECT. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914

THE BRITISH SUBJECT. It is dangerous to talk politics in Russia-very dangerous indeddan gerous for high and low alike.' Ginger Jim, of course, must be classed among the low-his name suggests as much and his appearance connrmed the suggestion. Nowadays he keeps a very respectable public house, in the cosy bar parlour of winch he sometimes rels this story; and tue telling of at brings him a good deal of custom. in those days no was a httle Cockney prize-hgher-only a fea thor-weight, but very formidable whom an impresario had picked up in Wonderland and taken to St. Peters burg, to give public exhibitions of his noble art. Hl? was an excellent little fellow of his kind, though he talked the Cock ney dialect, and had other Cockney characteristics. It was no part of his philosophy that, when at Rome, one should do as the Romans do. On the contrary, he remained as good a Cockney iii St. Petersburg as in Whitechapel-a friend of freedom, in dependent in his outlook, speaking his mind vigoro...

WEATHER AND CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914

WEATHER AND CRIME. The weather-that ever-fruitiful to pic of conversation-has now, in addi tion to its other shortcomings, to bear the stigma 'of being the indirect cause of much of the crime that is commit ted. A French scientist declares that at certain seasons of the year the ba rometer might be taken as a criminal register, just as well as a guide to atmospheric changes, because under certain conditions of the atmosphere murders and suicides are bound to be more plentiful than under other con ditions. "During the passage of a storm where the temperature is ex c-ssive," he says, '"the atmosphere being thoroughly saturated with mois ture, a person perspiring very-readily finds no relief from- evaporation In consequence he naturally 'feels very much depressed, and if his mind is not a strong one, is likely to suffer a complete mental breakdown, often fol lowed by the awful results recorded from time to time in the newspapers." The theory is not unreasonable, and a prominent member ...

THE BUSINESS OF SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914

THE BUSINESS OF SLEEP. Sunshine is good for everything but feathers. .. The best' number of persons to each bed is-one. Away with heavy hangings, either above or below the bed. Beware of a dusty, musty carpet; ,better sweetness and a bare floor. Do not fail to provide some means for ventilation during the niglht. SKeep the head cool while sleeping, but not by a drauglht of cold air fall ing upon it. If a folding bed must be used, con trive some way to keep it aired and wholesome. Let the pillow he high enough to bring the head in a natural position, lno lore nor less. Thoroughly air the sleeping room every dclay; air the beds and bedding as often as possible. - A dark, out-of-the-way, unwhole some corner is no more fitted for a sleoping-room than for a parlour. A feather bed which has done ser vice for a generation or two is hardly a desirable tihing upon which to sleep. When you go to bed make a business of sleep. Whenbver the nervous woman feels that she is losing her sleep, she w...

WARSHIP BLOWN UP. NEW ENGINE OF DESTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914

W?ARSHIP BLOWN UP. NEW ENGINE Oh DESTRUCTION. A warship was blown up by wireless off Portsmoutlh during an experiment with a mysterious invention which tilc Admiralty arc testing (a?id the "Daily Express'.' of October 27. The ship on which the experimelfnt was made was tie second-class cruiser Terpsichore, a ves sel of 3100 tons, and she now lies in dock with her IottoIn lown to pieces. The details of the invention are jea lously guarded, but it is known that for some weeks before the experiment was made the vessel was in dockyard hands, and that a mysterious metal 'box was fixed to the bottom of the ship. On Wednesday moinin'g last the Terpsichore iras towed to Stokes Bay, and from a battleship believed to ble eight miles away the material coln tained in the box was exploded by a wireless ray, or spark. There was a vast upheaval of water, and the cruiser was afterwards seen to have a heavy list to port. Five dockyard tugs. n hich. were waiting in tlhe distance clcs'd in on the crui...

A BETTER DANCER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914

A BETTER DANCER. Two "wild Hielandimen." recruits of .a famous kilted corps, were visiting au English clhurch for the first time. They had not long been seated when toe organist began to play a lively voluntary. This was something quite novel in their church experience, and they listened in open-mouthed aston ishment. One of them was shortly roused from his blissful reverie by a gentle tap uponu the shouldor. 'iur'ning round, hlie saw a handsome lady, the owner of the pow, who smiled graci ouslhy upon him and wished, of course, to be allowed to pass to her seat. He did not, however, take. in the situa tion. "Na, oa, moem, tak ma mate hero," ho whispered to her audibly; - "he will be a betteri daneer than me I"

COST OF FLYING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914

COST OF FLYING. It is estimated that the fuel and oil costs of in aeroplane of high power run into about £1 per hour of flight. The British Army has from 120 to 150 aeroplanes, .and as each machlne is expected to do about 200 hours' flying annually, the significance of high fuel costs will begin to be appreci ated. It will be measured by a fuel and oil bill of about £30,000 a year at retail prices. Those who read the signs expect the rate of inoreaso of air-craft to continue to 1000 nero palnes, and many dozens of airships within the next two years, meaning probably a fuel and oil bill of a quar ter of a mililon sterling. It has been further estimated that on the above supposition of development aer onautics may be expected within two years to take one-sixth part ,of the fuel consumption of all- the motor vehicles in Britain. Of the total con sumnption, estimated at about 100,000,000 gallons a year, it seems that 20,000,000 gallons are used by the omnibuses and taxicabs of Lon don, ...

M'Nally died at his parents' aeridence, " Mount Plea sajit," Seymour. He was only 41 years of age, and in his time had been a good footballer and a good sport. He was genial and kind hearted, and was much admired by all who knew him. Much sym pathy is felt for his bereaved parents and family. His remains were interred in the Seymour Cemetery yesterday afternoon, and were followed to their last resting place by one of the largest funeral corteges that has ever passed thrbugh the streets of Seymour.
