OUR BREAKFASTS TOO HEAVY. PLEA FOR SIMPLE COFFEE AND ROLLS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
OUS REA FASTS TOO HE?AV, PLEA FOR SIMPLE COFFEE Ay>D ROLLS. An attack has been made on iha t great British institution, the break fast, The attack is made in the "Lanoet," which discusses the advis ability of going withouit breakfast, in view of the belief that after the niahtr's sleop the bo?iTy strength, fiervous and muscular is at its highest aiond work oen be curried on ;"ithout teood. There would appear .'states the "Lancet," "to be good foundat, n "for such belief, and yet in this countiry, at any rate we believe very few people act upon it. How many men are in the habit of doing any work before they have breakfasted ? Very few w, imagine.

TRADE COM BIN ATIONS. ThE GROUPING SY~"TEi. NEW YORK, F'm?,. Lately an agitation has been in progress throughout the United States against the system of inte looking " directora,, by which a single firm often controlled a dozen other huge organisations. lo-day it became known that Mesers J. P. Morgan and Company, the famous New York bankers, had voiuntarily withdrawn from the New Yori Central, and Hudson River Rail road, the New York, New Hav en, and Hartford, and other railway companies in which they had a con trolling interest.

CARE OF THE FARM IMPLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
CARE OF THE FARM IMPL IMENTS. On getting; a new ip plemnnt, l va s see that the bearings are working, .smoothly, and that they are kept feP oiled, as if once allowed to ru- ht, they will not work so well afterwards. ann will probably wear quicker. Al! reptl irs should be nut in hand as soon as possible after tThe season's woi k is fin:shed, so that the implement is ea yiv for use when next required. ri i s aside some littlo detail that requ-ir-s attention is probably forgotten, ani loss of time results. The best time to get the drill but in order, is immedi ately the grain-sowing is finished. It is then ready for rape-sowing. The same with the binder. Any repairs to the canvasses or reel-and these fr quently require attention-ashould be done the first available opportunity after tha machine is drawn into the shed. And this brings to mind a point that requires attention. Never allow a binder to remain from under cover a moment longer than can bet helped. Exposure to weather does more...

ESPIONAGE LAW. A COMPREHENSIVE ACT. ST. PETERSBURG, FRI.?. The new Russian espionage law is remarkably strict as regards the publication in the press of matters pertaining to defence.

They are also prohibited from an nouncing the results of ma'eo?vres and test mobilizrtions on the fon tiers, and many other details of de fence work and preparations.o _____- ___-- ___________
FOOD DANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
FOOD DANGERS. The worst feature of modern lifo i its substitution. The idea is abroad that inferior «rticles are desir-cd. The journalist, the playwright, the grocer, the poet. all are trying to catch the public with something "popular."' But they are not doing it. The people cannot be fooled so easily. We are getting tired of snippets, of sand ,n the sugar, of saltpetre in tobacco, of ohemical beer of cubism, and other trade devices of the degenerates. When shall we havo a new Store Cupboard Party, or a general election cry of "Clean food and better values" i' The case is serious. The British Government Chemist last year cund? - ned 75,000 lb of tea on the gou that it containcd "sand or other for eign matter." "I could name (,' rites '"'.P.") a certain well-known tobacco that contains "such quantities of ',ad as would make a walrus weep. 1i,: what are the feminists doin .o ai:uw the teapot to be threatened ?

FLOWER FAIRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
FLOWER FAIRIES. Flower Fairies have you found them, When the summer dusk is falling, With the glow-worme all around them, Have you heard them s6ftly calling? Calling through your garden spaces Notes like fairy bells set ringing, Heard from out enchanted places Whence the fairy bees come winging ? Silent stand they through the noonlight In their flower shapes fair and quiet, But they quit them in the moonlight, In its beams to sing and riot. I have heard them, I have seen them, From their petals light-like raying, And the trees would fain have been them, The great trees too old for playing. Hundreds of them altogether, Flashing flocks of flying fairies, Crowding through the summer weather, Seeking where the coolest air is. And they tell the trees that know them, As upon their boughs they hover, Of the things that chance below them, How the rose has a new lover. And the roses laugh, protesting That the lilies are as fickle; Then they look where birds are nesting, And their feathers so...

FLEEING TROOPS. WASHINGTON, Fa.I.D . When the Federal troops were routed by the rebels at Ojinaga Northern Mexico, earlier in the week, numbers of the defeated troops fled over the United States frontier, but were driven back into Me:xico by American soldiers.

THE CARE OF CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
THE CARE OF CREAM. For the factory manager to turn out a first grade butter he requires the help of the farmer. The cream must be delivered in the best order possible, and some useful reminders in handlidhng cream are supplied by the "New Zea land Journal of Agriculture." Clean liness in the dairy is an essential con. dition. Cream cans are returned washed, but it is very necessary that they should be thoroughly cleansed and scalded again at the farm before use. For separating, a special room should be provided, at least 30 yards of wind ward of the milking shed, have a con crete floor, be provided with good drain age, well ventilated, and have a good supply of water. The milk should be separated as soon as possible, and while the animal heat is in the milk. The cream should at once be cooled to the lowest possible temperature; and, as the water required is small, this should present no serious difiiculty. Under no circumstances should cream from one skimming be mixed with cream fro...
