Naval Base Works A START AT WESTERNPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 1 June 1912
Naval Base Works. A START AT WESTERNPORT. ~.General work on naval bases will t be a feature. of naval developement during Ihe financial year to commence on July 1st next. ' So much compara tively inexpensive preliminary work ' in surveying, sounding and planning, has to be done that this will probably not involve the placing of a startlingly large amount on the estimates. The Government will be glad enough to postpone heavy expenditure on naval bases till 1913 14, for it will have to find at least £1,600,000 during next year to complete the building of the warships and to equip them with stores and reserves of stores. This must come from revenue. Borrowing for the navy is tabooed by Ministers and their caucus. Only at We~ternport has'work pro ceeded beyond the preliminary stages. There surveying and sounding are. almost completed, and on Tuesday the first: batch of workmen were de spatched: to Han's Inlet. They numbered 25, and will be the advance party of probably 200 men to be sta...
TYABB. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 1 June 1912
TYABB.. What was to have been a "special' night at the H.H.C. last week, was postponed on account of the rain, very few members putting in an appearance. It was deemed advisable to hold over the event until some future data. The c"-tract for doing the fencing on the recreation ground has been let. Mr Laity's tender of 31 Sd per chain was accepted, and the work will be gone on with immediately. Since this contract will cost a good bit less than was estimated by the committee, it would be a good idea to put the rest of the money into sinking a dam at the lower end of the proparty. About two feet of soil hbs already been re moved from a good area, and a'further depth of about five feet would provide a dam, which is very necessary. Some time ago members and patrons of the H.H.C. expressed a dresire to have more than the usual hour's dance. To this end they approdchled the Hall committee -for ? permission, and the lattri" bdy" is w'illihig,-undeur certain conditions. To-night; an extraor...

KEEPING MOSQUITOES AT BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 1 June 1912
KEEPING MOSQUITOES A' BAY. The cleianest and'most cftectual re pellant-i.e., material which will keep oft sosquitoes-is oil of citronella, which is an'extract from a grass, Anu dropogon nardus, primarily used in the manufacture of cheap grades of perfumery. The odour is not unples. sant to most persons, is quite lasting, and absolutely keeps of all kinds of mosquitoes. Protected by this mate rial, I have slept comfortably for an hour on a seashore piazza? on an even ing when everyone else was driven in doors. I have used it since 1897 on all my collecting trips, and no mat Ler how: large the swarm of mosqui toes surrounding me in the marihes or in the woods, none ever alighted on any part of mny body rubbed with the oil of citronella. Many others have used this material on my re commnendation, .and in all cases- it I has proved absolutely effective. It may be liberally applied on the nandls and face, or other exposed parts of the body, but shduld be kept out of the eyes. On very hot...

FOR A SORE CHEST. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 1 June 1912
FOR?A SOE CH ??T. An excellent remedy for a sore chest, a persistent cough, or any condition that needs a gentle, steady iritation is a mustard plaster,- made.' to be worn not for a few minutes, but for days at a time if needful. It is made with mustard and lard, in the propor tion of one of mustard and two of lard, being careful of that measure of lard. Rub these thoroughly to gether, and spread on a piece of mnus lin cut out in the neck, like a child's bib, and large enough to cover the whole region of the lungs. Cover this with another piece cut in the same manner and run a thread round the edge to keep the mustard from falling out after oil has been absorbed intc the skin. Tie it around the neck by means of tapes at the upper corners, and wear it twenty-four hours, and so on as long as it may be needed. This plaster never blisters if properly made, and is an excellent application for a sensitive skin that will not bear much irritation. It should he covered on the outside with a ...
