"Chauffeurs think," he said, "that they need only blow their horns and the pedestrians will leap out of the way.

A GREAT BOON TO HUMANITY. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 12 June 1914

A GREAT BOON TO HUMANITY. Bloxide of sodium seems to be one of tlie greatest boons to humanity which the century lias given—that is, If the reports as to the recent demon stration of its qualities before the French academy of science prove to be substantiated. it is said that this, product pos sesses the property of renewing oxy gen, the Jife-sustaining principle iu air, as well as of absorbing carbonic acid as it is given olf. Two men with .a new apparatus containing bloxido of sodium are alleged to have put on diving dresses from which all air was excluded, and remained for the space of two hours under these conditions. Subsequently they remained under water for half an hour under similar conditions. The availability of this new means of revitalising air in the case of sub marine craft seems obvious. But its use is likely to be very extended, en abling firemen to penetrate the dens est smoke without danger of suffoca tion, and miners to pursue their call ing safely, by depriving "...

LIGHT LOAMS FOR DAIRY FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 12 June 1914

LIGHT LOAMS FOR DAIRY FARMS. i Tlie ideal soil for a dairy farm is a loam of medium to light texture. A. loam is the name usually applied to soil which contains fair proportions of the principal plant food ingredients, |and;is rich in that important constitu ent' humus which is known to play {sov large a part in plant growth. Loamy; soils are usually low lying, and while sufficiently open texture to al low the winter rains to pass through .without lodgment or stagnation, they are at the same time so pervious that even in dry summer weather the water underneath comes up with such freedom they very seldom suffer from drought. For this reason loamy soils usually carry a good growth of grass during the greater part of the year— from early spring to late iu the au tumn. In addition to this the herb age produced on them is usually of good quality, and when properly treat ed and kept clear of objectionable weeds, such herbage will be found to consist very largely of the better descriptions...

THE VILLAGE CURE IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 12 June 1914

THE VILLAGE CURE IN FRANCE. The French cure lias neither wite nor family, nor even income or par sonage such as we should recognise. His house is a tiny affair of four rooms, and his Income £30 a year. No more? Well, the offerings of the people may come to £5 more, anil tills is all. -- course, J speak of the average rural cure. Men of mark and men of towns will always get a hear ing and an income. What can life on such an income consist of? Noth ing but the plainest fare, and lift without pleasure—at least, without an artificial one. No annual holiday; even his visits to Paris—very rare, ■be it noted—are the treat of some generous parishioner. The Kevolu :tion ■ destroyed the country seats of France, so he rarely has a squire to ask :him to dinner. He lives, there fore, with and in the ways of the peasants. He is as much a member of; a- caste as any Hindoo, aud rarely do }-ou see him walking with a lay man. Usually he is with a brother cure, or else he walks along reading his ; boo...

At .supper that night lie suddenly pulled a cartridge out of his pocket, that he "thought he had put thom all away." Someone, of course, pick ed it up and cut it open. "Great Scott! What a lot of shot!" said the green horn, in amazement. "How many are there?" No one knew, so the young ster suggested a pool on the subject.

CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 12 June 1914

CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS. Until your have named to control your thoughts, you will never bo able to live a godly and righteous life. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he; and it is because the thoughts that we entertain in the hostelry of the soul are such worthless and vain ones that our words and acts often bring so heavy a disgrace 011 the name we love. Well might the wise man say, "Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life."
