The Harder Job. A writer sought local color while in Glasgow by haunting the docks. There he fell into conversation with a bargeman who consumed great dif ficulties of liquor. "You drink a good bit of whisky, don't you?" asked the author. "Naething tae speak o'," said the other. "About how much a day?" "Oh, nae mair nor a quart." "Why," protested the author, "I couldn't drink that much water in a day." "An' I wadna dare try it," said the bargeman. He: Do you think it possible for a man to love two women?

SOME PUZZLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 July 1914
SOME PUZZLERS. Where oan a man buy a cap for his knees? Ci' a key for a lock of his hair? Can his eyes bo called an academy, Because there are pupils there? In the crown of his head what gems are set? Who travels the bridge of his nose? Can he use when slating the roof of his mouth The nails on the ends of his tpes? What does he raise from the slip of his tongue? Who plays on the drums of his ears? And who can tell the cut and style Of the coat his stomach wears? Can the crook of his elbow be sent to gaol? And if so what did it do? How does he sharpen his shoulder blades? I'm hanged if I know-do you? A Waste of Powder. It was at a holiday house party, and a man who had never been duck hunt ing shot at a duck in the air. The duck fell dead to the ground. "Well, you got him!" exclaimed the amateur's friend. "Yes," replied the amateur, "but I might as well have saved my am munition-the fall would have killed him." Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bou...

Mysterious Stomach Troubles. PRINCIPAL CAUSE REVEALED. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 July 1914
Mysterious Stomach Troubles. PRINCIPAL CAUSE RE VEALED. A great deal of mystery is made about stomach troubles, and many people go in constant dread of life-long incapacity or the horrors of the operating table just because they ex perience pain in tho region of the stomach for which they can not account, Instead of look ing for the cause of the trouble, they seem only too ready to describe themselves as "martyrs to in digestion" or "ohronic dyspeptics.". Excessive acidity is said to be the direct cause of more than,90 per cent, of all stomach troubles, and, accord ing to many eminent physicians, the occasional use of a reliable antacid, such as half-a-teaspoonful of pure DisuiiATED magnesia in a little water after meals, will do more towards righting stomach derangements than all the patent foods and medicines ever invented, because this gets at the root of the trouble--stops fermentation of the food contents, and neutralises tho acids which otherwise would irritate'and inflame the...

FOWL CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 July 1914
FOWL CHOLERA. This is one of the most dreaded diseases in the poultry world. It is caused by a germ and is highly con tagious. Once it has established it self in a poultry yard, nothing but the most thorough treatment will pre vent the annihilation of the entire flock. Medical treatment is of litle or no avail. The best thing to do is to kill all the sick birds at once, and to kill them in such a way as not to spread the infection with their blood, and to burn their bodies. The remain ing fowls should then be divided into small lots of from three to five each, so that when a bird is attacked by the disease the entire flock will not be exposed to it. Watch each one of the small lots closely and remove every sick bird. Clean and disinfect everything thor oughly, including small pens contain ing non-infected fowls, with a carbolic acid solution made by mixing one pint of crude carbolic acid and ten quarts of water. All birds not killed should be given three teaspoonfuls of a half per c...

TANNING SKINS AND HIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 July 1914
TANNING SKINS AND HIDES. ? The following is an approved meth od: Soak the skin or hide two or three days in water, then put in lime; take out and remove the hair by rubbing, and soak it in clear water until the lime is entirely out. Put lib. of alum to 31b. of salt; dissolve in a vessel sufficiently large to hold the hide; soak the hide in it for three or four days, then take it out, let it get half dry, and then.beat or rub it until it becomes pliable. Leather prepared in this way will not do well for shoes, but answers for hame straps, back bands, and various other purposes on the farm. The following is an ac count of the "lightning" method of tanning skins: Pour five or six quarts of boiling water over two quarts of bran, and then strain the infusion. Make an equal quantity of salt water by adding to blood-water as much as will dissolve. Mix the bran and salt water, and to each gallon of the mix-: ture (when no more than luke-warm) add an ounce of sulphuric acid. Im merse 'the sk...

In consequence the latter did not deliver his usual lecture, but instead had a chat, lasting some time, -with the few dairymen present, who asked a number of questions, and gained a deal of information. Throughout his remarks, Mr Barr laid strong em phasis on the desirability of those who went in for dairying, specialising in a j suitable dairy breed, continuously testing the animals, and culling those which were unprofitable. Mr W. Tumbull, president of the Agricul tural Society, tendered the hearty thanks of those present to Mr Barr at the close. Mr H. L.

HIS EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 July 1914
HIS EXPLANATION. A retired army officer tells a good story of a jobbing gardener, who, whatever his faults, apparently lacks nothing in the way of aptitude for. making excuses. "I'd had considerable trouble with my rough hands in the garden," says the army man, "but when this honest eyed specimen applied for the job of well-digging about ten rods of ground, I was taken by hiB appearance, and told him to come in the morning. " 'Now I want you to take your time and dig it thoroughly, not merely scratch the surface,' I said. 'Never mind how long it takes, dig deeply.' And whilst I was standing by he car ried out my instructions admirably. . "I left him at it quite certain that I would know if my orders were car ried out, for ahout six inches deep In the middle of the plot I had buried half a dozen clinkers each the size of a brick. "When I returned he was past the spot, but there was no sign of the clinkers lying about. "'Lend mo your spade a minute,' I said, and straightway unearthed ...
The Chemist's Diagnosis. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 July 1914
The Chemiat'G Diagnosis. People who go to chemists to have their diseases prescribed for occa sionally get very strange diagnoses. One day a farmer, wearing a long countenance, entered a chemist's es tablishment and remarked: "I seem to have something queer in my stomach, and I want you to give me something for it." "What are your symptoms?" the chemist asked. "Every now and then something seems to rise up and then settle back again, and by and by it rises up again." The chemist put his chin in the palm of hiB hand and meditated. "Look here," he said gravely, "you haven't gone and swallowed a lift, have you?"

Jaundice often arises from a chill on the liver or bile ducts, es pecially on top of an attack of biliousness. If you take care of your liver by giving yourself an occasional course of Cockle's -Antihilious Pills you won't have any reason to fear jaundice. Your liver will perform its functions in a better way and will therefore be less susceptible to chills. It is safe to take Cockle's Pills, because they are the prescription of a fully qualified medical man. They contain no harmful drugs, being purely vegetable in com position, and are painless and gentle in action. Of all Chemists, Pricca England, lllfc and 2/9.

Land Tax Valuations. COPIES FOR MUNICIPALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 31 July 1914
Land Tax Valuations, COPIES FOR MUNICIPALITIES.. Wlion tho Land Tax Valuation Bill was under review in Parliament, the view was taken that tho valuations which would be made should be made available for municipal and general purposes throughout tho State. Tho matter was again discussed when tho Unimproved Kates Bill, which is op tional for municipalities to adopt, was before tho Legislature. Since then many municipalities have made appli cation for copies of tho valuations. Early this month the State Treasurer and the Minister for Public Works conferred witli tho Under-Treasurer and tho Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner of Luul Tax, and dis cussed the whole matter with them. The view of the Minister was that tho State Land Tux Commissioner should not charge more than tho actual cost of preparing copies for the municipali ties. Sir Alexander Peacock had several interviews subsequently with tho officers, as municipalities generally .were anxious to get the information. He brought t...
