THE ECONOMICS OF DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

MELBOURNE, SATURDAY, JAN. 3. THE ECONOMICS OF DEFENCE. . Finance is the keystone of any system of national, defence. Unless under the pros sure of extraordinary conditions and the iinmediate imminence of danger no country will endeavor to secure national safety at exorbitant cost. It is. an unwise policy which, will. ruin, the :possibilities of the future for th!e sake ofaian extravagant and unnecessary -precaution in the piesent. These ie'flections do not preclude the desir ability of making all reasonable require. ments for national -security,; even though' this may impose considerable burdens upon the people. But it is the duty of statesmen to see that the strain is not allowed to. pass beyond the bearing capa city, of the nation; and that the power of recuperation on which. iational progress depends is not seriously limited.: The criticism which has.been directed against the swollen expenditure on military and. naval, purposes, does not alpply to the principle of national defenc...

CENTRAL BOARD OF HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

CENTRAL BOARD OF HEALTH. The officials at the Health department have 'been busy. clearing out a room and ordering carpets and furniture for it, in order to accommodate the new Minister of Health, Mr. J. D. Brown, 1who is to take ciharge as soon as he receives tihe ap proval of his electorate. Mr. Brown ex pects to be returned unopposed, and if so he. will grapple immediately with many of the problems now facing the Health Board. Contrary to custom, the board has,pre pared no programme of work for the com ing year, it being realised that there is so mudh in its programmes of foi'mer years left undone that it would be futile to issue 'fresh programmes for many years to come. The new Minister and- Dr. 'Robertson, the chief health officer, ?~ill confer as soon as possilble after Mr. Brown's .return (rodbably next iweek). as to the general work of the department, and its sdhemens for, the future.

DUELS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

DUELS. Perhaps the nearest parallel to the reeant duel near Paris between a Bulgarian offi cer-as the ohampion of his ca'luminated army-and an expert French fencer repre senting Pierre Loti is to 'be found in the famous encounter of a corresponding kind between two royal princes-one of the House of Orleans and the other of Savoy. In 1897 the wihole Italian army had felt in sulted by some remarks of Prince Henry of Orleans, on whom challenges came straight way showering down, ini'cluding one signed "Victor Emmanuel," which Prince Henry hesitated not to accept on the assumption that he had to deal with King Humbert's heir-apparent-the present King 'of Italy. But on the arrival in France of the royal duellist he was found to be-not the Crown Prince, but his cousin, the Comte de Turin -who bore the same name-one of the most finished fencers in Italy, and he re turned to Rome with the stain of his an tagonist's blood on his blade. Probably the last duel brought about in Great Britain thr...

ANCIENT AND MODERN MIRACLES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

ANCIENT AND MODERN MIRACLES. The power of the legs is affected with quite remarkable frequency in persons who are the victims of a neurotic temperament. The arms frequently escape any loss of their' muscular power and purposeful direc tion of movement, but for some reason self suggestion is much more likely to cause a conception that a hidden trouble is lying in the organs of locomotion. This will happen where no local affection exists, where no organic affection underlies the loss of power, but the lost power in the lower limbs or in a part of them is a dis order existing only in the imagination. The affection, hysterical in its nature, varies in the degree of immobility produced and in its distribution in the limbs. That is to saiy, there may exist only weakness, or, on the other hand, there may be complete paralysis with a total absence of all move ment of a voluntary kind; the affection may be limited to the dragging of one foot, or involve the total area of both limbs. HYSTERIC...

LIVE STOCK. CORRIEDALE SHEEP. THEIR GROWING POPULARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

CORRIEDALE SHEEP, THEIR. GROWING POPULARITY. IBY " OUR AGRIOULTURAT REPOTER.] There can be no mistaking the fact.that Coiriedale sheep are rapidly gaining in popularity in Australia. Quite a number of flocks have already been formed, and the very excellent results obtained from them are encouraging other sheep men to pay close attention to the breed. At lead ing agricultural shows in both Victoria and New South WVales, Corriedale sheep have been on view, and the, interest, taken ia thi exhibits shows that the merits of the breed are steadily gaining recognition. At the wool sales recently held in Mel Ibourna, Corriedale fleeces met with more than a favorable reception. According to n. sound authority the Corriedale wool sent in by a well known pastoralist of the Donald district was exceptionally good. In his judgment, had there not been so much ,bunr in evidence the wool would' probably have made l5d., instead of ?13d. per lb. Of a Wagga consignment, which was dusty and heavy, while...

THE GRADE COW. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

THE CRADE COW. Some of the breeders of pure bred dairy cattle have strange notions about acknowv ledging the existence of the grade cow. They seem to be afraid of something that will rise up to plague the pure bred. This notion, in the opinion of "Hoard's Dairy man," has no real foundation. Oa the contrary, the Aficrican authority just quoted would like to see every encourage ment given to the production of first class grade cows in all the dairy breeds. To produce such acws the farmer must have a pure bred sire. He must have, also, a right idea of the great importance of se curing a bull of the strongest and best blood lines. We ihave only to reflect a nmoment to ."ce that it really needs a more prep ted;r b,'l in the production of grade cows than iu a pure bred 'herd. In the pure bred herd te blood of the sire is strdngly reinforced and aided by the agreeing blood of the feiman which is harmonious in blood lines with him. But when we place a pure .bred sire at the head of a herd o...

WESTERN DISTRICT FACTORIES. THE WINTER BALANCE SHEET. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

WESTERN DISTRICT FACTORIES. THE WINTER BALANCE SHEET. [FROM OUIR CORRESPONDENT.] The. last of the district factory balance sheets, covering for the most part the winter months, has just etraggled along. These ibalance sheets are issued at .all sorts of intervals, and come out at various periods after the books close. Usually on the farm tle winter months are reckoned as a partly dead period, but in the West ern district at any rate the dairyman is very much alive, as the balance sheets of the factories- show. There have been two rather remarkable events during the period under review. The first was the amalga mation of the Grasmere and Framlingham factories. The whole of the butter is now made at Grasmere, and the old Framliuig. ham factory has been dismantled and. turned into a cream station. While there is some local regret at the passing of the Framlingham factory, the. amalgamation is to be apptoved as a' sound business-like bit of policy, and should decidedly streng then both c...

AMBIDEXTER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

AMBIDEXTER. Charles Reade was a great apostle of ambidexterity. In the seventies he wrote a series of newspaper articles, in which he endeavored to prove that we all came into the world-even-handed, and that the pre. ference given to the right hand. was only a viciouss ctstom." He considered: it quite a national question, and went as far as to worry members of Pailiament to briig in a bill making the teaching of ambidextrous ness compulsory in elementary schools. But they one and all-even Sir Wilfrid Lawson -declined to put their names to his bill. But was Reade's contention correct. that we came into the 'world even-handed ?

COW TESTINC ASSOCIATION. SWEDISH .METHODS. Although no great difference of opinion may exist among intelligent dairymen as to the utility or seasonableness of the work of increasing the percentage of milk fat, yet it may interest them tq learn the attitude. of Swedish dairymen toward the economic aspect; of this important ques tion. Dairymen in general seem to have slighted the importance of one phase of. the milk fat question, but Swedish dairy men appear to have had their attention fixed upon it for a long time past. The phase referred to is the profit, which ac: companies the production of butter from milkl rich in fats as'compared with that which acompanis its production from milk poor in fat:. AMr. J. J. Dunne, of Denmark, in "loard's Dairyman," writes as follows:- .
