THE PEOPLE'S PARTY. The Cook and Watt Teams. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 January 1914

THE PEOPLE'S PARTY. EXTRACTS FROM THE PRESI DENT'S LETTER. The Cook and Watt Teams. The Cook Government assumed otllce with a majority of one only, and jority of one only, and has had arrayed against them a deter mined and powerful Opposition. When the Federal Parliament met, it was doubtful, after the elecuon of Speak er removed that singular majority, that the Government could carry on; but the Federal Liberals were a uni lied body, ably led by an experienced general, and they have helped the Go vernment to make good. Contrast this delicate yet well-sustained position with that of the Watt Government, who had better than a 2 to 1 majority, but who, through lack of the cohesion which made the Federal Liberals strong, are now relegated to tile cold sllaaes of Opposition-tor a short time only, no ooubt, yet they are there. Let us hope that the State Liberal Par liamentarians are now wiser if sadder men, as a direct result of the intru sion of discordant elements and of the disregard ...

Bad Health. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 9 January 1914

Bad Health. One of the most general causes of bad health is the inefficient action of the kidneys and the liver. It is the function of the kidneys and liver to deal ,with certain waste poisons which are being continuously manufactured in our bodies, and, when the kidneys, and liver are inactive or diseased, these waste poisons remain in the sys tem, and cause us to suffer from rheu matism, gout, neuralgia, lumbago, lbackache, sciatica, blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, biliousness, jaundice, sick-headache, general debil ity, gravel, stone and bladder troubles. The reason that Warner's Safe Cure has proved so effective in the above mentioned complaints is that the me dicine heals and restores the kidneys and liver to health and activity when the uric acid and other waste poisons are duly expelled from the body through the natural channels. Warner's Safe Cure is sold by chem ists and storekeepers, both in the orig inal (5/-) bottles and in the cheaper non-alcoholic (Concentrated)...

PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 9 January 1914

PIGS FOR BACON. Certain modifications in the meth ods of killing and preparing pigs for bacon have been necessary in recent years to meet the demands of the consumer and curer. Among these has been the movement in favor of less fat and more lean, what is pre ferred now being a tasty, mild-flavor ed, somewhat lean bacon, which is finely streaked with fat and of firm texture. It is occasionally found in dealing with carcases for either pork or ba con that there exists an abnormal condition in the texture of fibre of nie flesh. It is soft, yields to pres sure, is flabby, and possesses an un natural greasiness. This class of flesh invariably cures badly, and pro duces inferior bacon. Observation has taught that it is mainly due to the various classes of food being used in improper proportions. Further experience has shown that this influence is more pronounced dur ing winter. Low temperatures exert a change upon the nature of the body fat. Animals exposed to cold are prone to produce an...

SMOKING WHILE MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 9 January 1914

SMOKING WHILE MILKING. Do not allow dogs or loafers to be round at milking time. If any acci dent occurs by which a pail-full or partly full of milk becomes dirty, do not try to remedy this by straining, but reject all this milk, and rinse the pall. We remember one day, when on a visit, seeing a milking hand smoking a pipe. Suddenly, he spoke to the cow, and the pipe fell from the man's mouth into the bucket. He made one grab into the milk-bucket, put the wet pipe into his pocket, and went on milking! Then, what about the ash from a pipe or cigarette fall ing about everywhere? Sack the man or boy who smokes while milking.

BORDER AUCTIONEERS. --4--~---- The application of Archibald Mathie son, a member of the firm of Mathie son and Davis, auctioneers and stock and station agents, for an auctioneers' license at Albury, New South Wales, formed the subject of legal argument at the police court there on Monday.

As the honorary justice who sat with Mr. Jamieson, P.M., differed from the magistrate on the question, the case was adjourned. Subsequently the Bench decided to grant the appli cation, Mr. Jamieson, P.M., dissenting, as he held the view that the applicant, whose home was at Sale, -Victoria, was not a resident within the mean ing of the section of the 'Act.
