MIy uncle ran agin a skunk once, and---" But before the sentence was finish ed the enraged dandy sped from the crowd to escape the shouts of laUgh ter, while the innocent farmer, who only meant to do him a kindness, was iWondering what caused his sudden de parture. "'According td this paper," observed Mr. Goodwin, "a man has lived a year on beer alone."' "Well, that's as it should be," obh served Mrs. Goodwin. "Any man who lives on beer ought togbe compelled to live alone."

FLEAS AND FLIES HAVE THEIR PARASITES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 8 May 1914
FLEAS AND FLIES HAVE THEIR PARASITES. The latest discovery announced in the Paris Academy of Sciences is that of the parasite of the flea, which, it is claimed, is the chief agent in the spread of the plague and other dis eases'transmitted by this insect. Pulex irritans, as the flea is called in scientific writing, is the victim of . the leishmanioses, which live in the flea's diggstive tubing, and it is this parasite of our parasite which really transmits the plague and other infec tions, and not the much-abused flea aimself, who is only indirectly re sponsible, being compelled to carry this parasite once it finds lodgment in his anatomy. The flea'looks small enough to our eye, and he 'is so lively that no one ever thought that any other parasite - could catch him, hbut it seems that not only do the leishmarnioses catch him, but they also catch the plague, or yel low fever, and are the mnst important carriers of the germs. This discovery has much to suggest to our investigators, fo...

MIan drinks whisky, and that clogs." the valves; he drinks beer, anad that clogs the wheels; he swallows lem onade, ginger-ale, butermilk, tea, cof fee and cocoa, and then wonders why the boilers do not burn. If you should take an ox and put him through a like performance he would be dead ill a month. The sim plest and plainest laws o] health are outraged every day by the average man. Did Adam smoke? Did Eve wear a0 corset? Did Solomon chew tfobac co? Did Ruth chew chocolates! Did the children of Israel make for a beer garden" after crossing the Red Sea?. Did Rebecca chew bonbons and ice cream and call for soda-water? Adam was the first man, and was made perfect from head to heel. tHow long could he remain so after eating plum-pudding before going to bed? Suppose he had slept in a bedroom five by seven, with the windows closed down, the door,s shut, and two dogs under the bed! Suppose Eve had been laced up in a corset, worn tight sho...

CORRESPONDENCE. . THE FOX PEST. (To the Editor "Kerang New Times.") Sir,-Foxes are very plentiful in this district, probably on account of the young lambs. Mr : F. Sanders, with his well known dog Tim,- has caught several with much difficulty one day having to run two miles after one, which he finally caught in the Calival Creek. Mr Fred Peel, another resident of this district, has also got some scalps to his belt, so it would be a day well spent if the farmers were to take one off in the destruction of foxes. R. A. WISHART.

RURAL PRODUCERS. An effort is being made to have a meeting in lendi go of delegates from the various branches of the disbanded ural . Producers 'Association, with a view to the formation of an organisa tion on different lines. "\V.F.K.," writing in the "Advertiser," says:-"The disbandment of the Rurel Producers: Association, brought about by the executive's fear that it would be cited before the Arbitration Court by the Rural Workers' Union, has had the effect of depriving. the farmer and rural producer of a multitude of bene fits, which he could enljoy only by means of membership of such. a body. While the facts, in themselves, which led the executive to the decision are no doubt sufficient to call for seri ous considenation, there is a deep rooted feeling amongst the rank and file that the members anid district coun cils should have been consulted before such a drastic move was made.
