RUN DOWN BY A MOTOR. YOUNG MAN INJURED. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 January 1914

RUN DOWN BY A MOTOR.   YOUNG MAN INJURED. About 1 o'clock on New Year's morning a motor car belonging to Travis's motor garage, Sandringham, which was being driven by Samuel Davis along Beach road southwards, overtook a number of young men near Tennyson street, Black Rock, who were walking arm in arm in the road- way singing songs on their way home from the Sandringham carnival. One of them, Alexander Gibson, aged 21 years, of Glenferrie road, Glenferrie, was knocked down, and, disappearing under the car, was rolled over and over for some distance. Fortunately, the wheels did not pass over him. He was picked up insensible, and with most of his clothing torn off. When he regained consciousness he was under treatment by Dr Leary, who found that his shoulder was dislocated, and that his left hip and the calf of his left leg was badly bruised. Davis, in a statement to the police, admitted that he was driving 15 to 20 miles an hour. When he caught sight of the young men in t...

BOROUGH COUNCIL. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 30. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 January 1914

BOROUGH COUNCIL.   Tuesday, December 30. Present:—The Mayor (Cr. W. P. Northcott, J.P.), and Crs. Broom, Grose, Gray and Ellis, When the minute of last meeting was read regarding the expenditure of £1 10s for a writ of dedimus potesta- tem being disallowed by the Govern- ment auditor, and the council having decided that the amount be paid out of the £20 voted for the mayor's incidental expenses, the Mayor (who was not present at the previous meeting) said no intention of paying the money, the sum voted was for con- tingencies this year, but not for ex- penses incurred last year. Cr Broom said the amount would not come out of the mayor's allowance, but out of the vote for contingencies. The Mayor : For contingencies this year, and he was not going to pay it. Cr Grose said he did not think it the proper time to discuss the matter. He had moved that the amount be paid out of the contingency vote at last meet- ing, for he held that the contingency allowance was under the co...

COUNTRY COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 January 1914

COUNTRY COMMUNI- CATION. Questions have been raised from time to time as to whether the officers of the Postal department take reason- able and proper steps to construct country district telegraph and telephone lines as cheaply as practicable. Some light is thrown on this matter by a report which has been forwarded to the Post- master-General (Mr Wynne) by the chief electrical engineer (Mr J. Hes- keth). Mr Hesketh points out that the regulations at present provide for three main classes of public telegraph or telephone lines—first, those in which the revenue is sufficient and the de- partment will construct the lines without guarantee; second, those in which the revenue is not sufficient and the department will construct upon a suitable guarantee being entered into or assistance rendered by the persons interested, the guarantee or assistance required being based on the estimated cost of construction and the cost of operating; and third, those in which the department's terms do not ...

ON GOLDEN WINGS CHAPTER XVII. EVA LOSES A FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 January 1914

ON GOLDEN WINGS (By W. Howell Poole.) CHAPTER XVII. EVA LOSES A FRIEND. A moment, and there came a chill, A stagnant icy chill; as though The blood recoiled, afraid to fill A heart made weak with such a blow Eliza Cook, As Richard Hammond groped his way from the cottage, Eva was re- turning, and seeing her so close, he drew his hat down to conceal his face, then buttoning high his thread- bare coat, passed quickly from her. But Eva, wondering at a stranger leaving the cottage, paused for an in- stant at the threshold to look back upon his hurrying figure. She saw that he had removed his hat, and car- ried it at his side, and watched and wondered until the blinding snow had shut him from sight; but, when she entered the cottage, strange to na rate, the figure of this man was in- delibly associated in her mind with the shadow that had brought darkness for an instant in the room. "Who has been with you?'' she en- quired of old Hammond, as she shook the snow off her jacket, and, setting...

ONE COW TO THE ACRE. EXAMPLE OF INTENSIVE FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 January 1914

ONE COW TO THE ACRE. EXAMPLE OF INTENSIVE FARM ING. In the course of an editorial dealing with intensive farming the Taranaki "Herald" draws a comparison between the methods of Danish and Taranaki   farmers, and points out the wide mar- gin between the values of produce gained per acre in favour of Denmark, owing to the manner in which farming practice is conducted there. As an illustration of what may be accom- plished in New Zealand under intense cultivation methods, the " Herald " cites the experience of a small farmer who lives a few miles from New Ply- mouth . "A few years ago he had about eighty acres of land, naturally, no more fertile than the land surrounding him. Recognising the value of intensive far- ming he disposed of half his land, re- taining less than forty acres, upon which he now maintains a herd of 20 pure-bred Jersey cows, besides pigs, a horse or two, and a few young stock. From these cows he looks for a cash   return this year of abou...

GROUND LIMESTONE FOR ACID SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 January 1914

GROUND LIMESTONE FOR ACID SOIL.   An exhaustive comparison between limestone and quicklime has been is- sued by the head of one of the Ameri- can experiment stations. After ex- plaining that the function of lime in the soil is two-fold—viz, to correct the acidity of the soil and to decompose the soil itself—and showing the effect of these transformations, the writer dis- cussed the kind of lime to use. There follows a sweeping condemnation of quicklime, the use of which on soil which is already deficient in nitrogen and phosphates only serves to still fur- ther exhaust the soil of its meagre sup- ply of these elements. It is true, the immediate effect is somewhat increased crops, but the oontinued use of lime, unless on soils exceedingly rich in or- ganic matter, tends rapidly to exhaust the soil and ultimately to leave it practically ruined. We should use lime only to correct acidity of the soil, and this is necessary only where there is difficulty in obtaining a good ...

HOW TO MAKE BORDEAUX MIXTURE ADHESIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 January 1914

HOW TO MAKE BORDEAUX MIX- TURE ADHESIVE. At the last March meeting of the Academy of Sciences, Messrs. V. Ver- morel and F. Danthony indicated the results of investigations carried out by them at the Viticultural Station of Villefranche-sur-Saone on the processes adopted for the purpose of giving ad- hesive properties to spraying mixtures used for vines. The following are the principal con- clusions : the addition of gelatine per- mits of solutions being obtained hav- ing great superficial viscosity, and we have advised its addition to the copper mixtures to make them adhesive. Gela- tine in doses varying from 3 to 8 oz. per 100 gallons can be used for Paris green and for acid Bordeaux and Bur- gundy mixtures. On the contrary, we have found that in the alkaline mix- ture the soda present renders the gela- tine insoluble, thereby diminishing its superficial viscosity. We have consequently looked for a substance, costing little, which could take the place of gelatine. Among the substa...

STATESMEN. Mother: "I gave each of you boys an orange. Charles, you said you wouldn't eat yours till after dinner, and you, Jack, said the same. Have you deceived me?" Charlie: "No, mother we didn't eat our oranges. I ate Jack's an' he ate mine." The career of these boys seems assured.

ADMONITION AND RETORT. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 January 1914

ADMONITION AND RETORT. Some time ago a man was in the throes of house-cleaning. Everything was in a state of chaos, and the poor old father was down on his hands and knees trying to tack a carpet to the floor. Suddenly he made a misplay, and the hammer, seeming to studiously avoid the tack, came down on father's thumb with a force that was mentally dis- turbing. "John Henry! John Henry!" re-   monstrated his horrified wife. "You must not swear in that dreadful way!" "All right, madame! All right, wo- man!" responded the wild-eyed lord and master. "If you know of a better way, now is the time to put me on to it!" At the last meeting of the Fitzroy branch of the Australian Natives' As- sociation, Mr. S. G. Marsden Maddock stated that, out of a membership of over 600, only five members were on the sick-list—a fact which clearly de- monstrated that Fitzroy, despite its congested quarters, is as healthy as more-favourably situated cities.

THE CARE OF THE STOMACH. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 January 1914

THE CARE OF THE STOMACH. When one considers the amount of   talk (writes Sir Robert Wilson) which circles round the stomach—talk in   which words like appetite, dispepsia, and indigestion come with an air of certainty and meaning—it seems   strange that the behaviour of the speakers should be so haphazard. I have known a doctor spend a whole   half hour in explaining to a lady with gastric ulcers how serious was her con- dition, how doubtful he was whether he was justified in allowing food to pass at all into a wounded organ, and exhorting her to remain in bed for a week, and live entirely upon small meals of Benger's food; and yet, in less than a week we find her, eased of her pain, tackling a big meal of hot buttered toast and sausages and tea. Trivial incidents of life, things not fraught with serious consequence, re- ceive infinitely more thought. That lady, had she been intending to carry a present of plums to someone, would h...

THE SLUMS OF DUBLIN. TEN IN ONE ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 January 1914

THE SLUMS OF DUBLIN. TEN IN ONE ROOM. "A case was heard recently in the   Dublin Northern Police Court in which two men were charged with assaults on the police during a riot," says the "Irish Times" in a remarkable lead- ing article. "They made counter charges of a very serious kind against a sergeant and six constables. In the course of the hearing a bright and terrible light was thrown on the con- ditions of life in the tenement slums of Dublin. "The brothers, William and Patrick O'Leary, are laborers. They live to- gether in a front room on the third   floor of 2 Marlborough place. William   O'Leary was asked to state the num-   ber of occupants of this room on the night of August 31, He replied my wife, myself, six children of mine, my brother Pat, and one child of his, who is dying of consumption. There are ten of us in the room." O'Leary's wife confirmed this evi- dence. She said that the ages of her six children ranged from...

THE EXPERT. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 January 1914

THE EXPERT. The Sultan of Turkey, says the "Ar- gonaut," once played a joke at the expense of some medical experts at Con- stantinople. When the plague broke out in his capital, the Sultan asked if anything was known as to the cause. On being informed that it was to be found in the state of the drinking water, he called at once for six empty bottles, which he had filled in his presence, all from the same one of the palace wells, placed his own seal upon them and then, with- out divulging their community of ori- gin, handed all six to a prominent an- alyst. To his amazement the report sent in was that four of the samples contained plague microbes. The fifth was merely putrid water, and the sixth was quite pure. Abdu Hamid calmly shrugged his shoulders, and kept his   thoughts to himself.

THE FRUIT INDUSTRY [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 6 January 1914

THE FRUIT INDUSTRY, - - - - With one exception only, that of lambs, no Commonwealth export of a natural product has developed to such an extent in recent years as fruit. This industry has progressed without Gov- ernment supervision, the growers and   their different agents working the business on sound lines. New markets have been exploited, and everything possible has been done by the fruit growers to further their own interests. The position to-day is, that notwith- standing the enormous increase in pro- duction of the main staple, the apple, the outlook has never been brighter. The Victorian Department of Agri-   culture has been for some time making strenuous efforts to become identified in some way or other with the progress of the trade, but the latest move made by the director has been strongly resented by the growers. The cir- cumstances connected with the erection of shed accommodation at the new Port Melbourne pier, brought the attitude of the dep...

THE CRESWICK ADVERTISER ESTABLISHED 1858. TUESDAY, JANUARY 6, 1914 [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 6 January 1914

THE CRESWICK ADVERTISER ESTABLISHED 1858, Tuesday, January 6, 1914 Nominations close today (Tuesday), at 12 noon, for the Allandale seat in the Legislative Assembly, forfeited by Sir Alexander Peacock by his accept- ance of the portfolio of Minister of Education and Labor in the new Watt Ministry. No opposition to the return of Sir Alexander has been announced, and it is therefore probable that he will to-day be re-elected unopposed, his representation of the district electorate having met with general approval for about a quarter of a century. Sir Alexander Peacock's nomination has been lodged with the returning officer (Cr W. P. Northcott), and in the event of there being no further nomi- nations, Sir Alexander will be declared elected at 12 o'clock to-day. It is likely that four of the Ministers will be opposed. The Labor party has selected Cr F. Keane to oppose Mr Watt at Essendon, and Mr W. H. Webber to contest the Prahran seat against Mr Mackinnon. Mr F. McRae has announced th...
