THE KITCHEN GARDEN. JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 January 1915
THE' KITCHEN GARDEN. JANUARY. This is the -month when frequent attention must be given to young crops of Cabbages, Cauliflowers, and others of the genus; also Cucumbers, Let tuCes an.d Celery, which' should never -be allowed to have their growth checked through deficiency of moisture. Sonie of the earlier crops will'have been exhausted before this time, when the ground should be cleared and prepared for a succession of digging, trenching, and manuring, as may be required. It is not advisable to dig the manure "deeply into the soil, the usual way being to spread it on the surface, and ferk in lightly. The digging fork should be used in place of the spade wherever the soil is of such a nature that it can be used effectively ; hoeing should also be freely practised during the dry weather, not only to destroy weeds, but also to maintain a loose stir. face, thus lessening the evaporation of -m0oisture. Herbs for drying'should be cut when in flower, hung i.n bunches, and dried in the shad...
A GOOD WORD FOR TOBACCO. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 January 1915
A GOOD WORD FOR TOBACCO. In the opinion of Cavallaro, who writes in an Italian paper, tobacco has a very stfbon. bdctericidsil powet depending to some xtenit on its con tent in nicotine, and partly to the resistance of bacteria present. In all cases tobacco sterilises the saliva, and does. no damage to the teeth, rwhich become and remain black if not properly looked after. A small quantity of nicotine stimulates sali vary excretion, but a large amount diminishes it. It is wrong to at tribute inflamations of the gums and buccal mucous membrane to the ifi fluence of tobacco. This Idst is only the determining factor in a pre-exis ting inflammatory r.,ocess, whether latent or manifest. It is, however, by no means proved that epithclioma of the tongue and lips is exclusively due to tobacco smoking. The author relying on this antiseptic action of tobacco, calls for an increase, not a diminution, in the ranks of smokers.

A FAD WITH A PURPOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 January 1915
A FAD WITH A PURPOSE.:-; Some people's fads are often annoy ing, but we occasionally come across~-. one that is amusing. Belonging to the latter category" is that of a wealthy old lady who has an account at a West End branch of one of the big London banks. When she pays in the cashier always finds a tract attached to her credit slip, and the clerk who opens her pass-book to make it up, finds another. When she writes to the manager she always encloses a tract for his special benefit. The old lady has been distributing religious literature in this manner for several years, and the bank officials always look on the fad with amuse ment. Their feelings,' however, took a different turn the other day,, when a friend, of the lady casually informed the manager that the tracts are given to no other persons .but the men who have charge of the old lady's money.! A pen-nib is a little thing, yet there is more steel used in the manu facture of nibs than in all the sword and gun factories in the w...
Snake Bite. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 January 1915
Snake Bite. Whilst shooting at Swan Island on Thursday, in- company with several others, Mr Eric Dewar was bitten by a snake. He had been travelling through the mangrove and had not detected the snake, until, feeling a peculiar sensation in one of his legs, investigated, and -found the mark of the reptile's fangs. He was hastened -to Queenscliff and treated by Dr Mary Mitchell, and yesterday was. pro gressing favorably and out of danger. In connection with the recent sale of. gifts and fete held by St. George's Church of England, the sum of £79 has been obtained as profit, which is very creditable.

Queenscliff and Pt., Lonsdale. Several additions have been. made to the Queenscliff list, which now numbers 48 subscribers.

The entr ance into the latter place is some what similar to Sydney, with this exception, the surrounding cliffs at Albany are absolutely bare, not a house to be seen, but nevertheless the accommodation in the harbour itself -for shipping is wonderful.

THE HUNGARIAN GENTLEMAN FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 January 1915
TI$L flUNfAeiI4ii b l lM 6 1f FARMER. -- --+ -' Most Contented Individual in the World. Writing on "The Hungarian Gen tleman Farmer," in the "' Windsor," Baroness Orczy says : "He is the most contented indivi dual in the world, in spite of the act, or because he knows absolutely nothing of what is going on around him. He does just read his news paper which arrives daily from Bu da-Pesth, and has vague ideas that all Austrians are thieves and scoun drels, and that therefore a union with Austria is necessarily fatal to Hungary ; but, as a matter of fact, the political situation of his country does not interest him in the least: it does not affect the richness of his wheat or the weight of his maize heads. "A keen. sportsman, he is unham pered by any game laws. In Hun gary no one is allowed to carry a g n unless he owns so much land, and the owner of land--and therefore. of game-naturally makes his own laws for its preservation. "His chief characteristic is hospi tality, almost barbari...
