'Tihe attendance is considered. not. quite as good.as former seasons,, but this is not by reason of" any depreciation in the popularity of Queenscliff as a seaside iresort, but principally, almost' solely, because accommoda tion has been somewhat lessened.

THE DAIRY. MILK PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 January 1914
THE DAIRY. MILK PRODUCTION. The production of milk is depen dent on the development of the mil' glands of the cow, and is a 'question:; of breed and suitability. Food can assist and improve it marvellously. - The modern dairy cow.is essential ly an artificial production of civili satio.-not a distinct natural type, as too many dairymen seem to think -with her splendid powers for pro ducing milk gradually built up from very small yields by good feeding and careful breeding from selected ani .mals, continued through numberless generations of ancestors. The origi nal breeds have been almost entirely changed in habits and appearance. She has been persistently bred, fed, and selected by man for so long a time that she has changed' from a beef cow, giving a little milk, into na special-purpose cow, giving milk al most solely in return for her food. In other words, the dairy cow con verts all her food, save that portion needed for existence,, into milk and butter-fat, while her sister, the...

WHERE FLIRTING IS FORBIDDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 January 1914
WHERE FLIRTING IS FORBIDDEN. Many eminent doctors regard kiss ing as a dangerous *and obnoxious habit; but there are places--happily abroad-where kissing and flirtinig is an offence against the laws of the countr.y. In Paris recently a couple were publicly reproved for kissing in a railwilay-train-an offence against the by-laws of the company. It is, however, in America that the laws against making love are most stringent. Seven young men in Vir ginia have just been prosecuted for flirting with college girls in that State. At a certain cemetery in a small town of Pennsylvania loving couples found. the place'so convenient that notices were put up: "Flirting is Prohibited." But America and Paris staid not alone in this respect. It is a crime in Russia for lovers to kiss in pub lic. To kiss in the street in this happy land will cost you fifteen shil lings; while should you meet the lips of your adored one in the tram car, you will be mulcted in precisely ten shillings more. The train h...

GRASS FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 10 January 1914
GRASS FARMING. The most striking characteristic:of Swiss farming is the imrertanceh-;of the grass crop. Over 70 per 'cent. of the farm land is in grass, and, aside from the. land cultivated for vege taible gardens, very little land is ploughed , in fact; the miiost recent statistics show that -there are over 20,000 mowing machines and only six or seven grain .binders owned in the whole, country., Of these binders two or three' of. them are owned by agri cultural college§ or experimenz sta tions. Yet with practically no grain grown and, with this systemi, of al most pure grass farming; their lands give far better:-returns. How can they. get,:- such returns ? Well, there is just one way--through the dairy cow. Switzerland is pre eminently a dairy coiintry, and at the present. time. the3 have over 1,500,000. cattle and less than 150,000 sheep'; and the number of sheep is constaiatly, decreasing. Sheep will not give enough returns to pay to keep them on such high-priced land, ankl they ...

LIFE ON A SUBMARINE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 10 January 1914
LIFE ON A SUBMARINE. The active service in submarines is limited to a period of three weeks- on end--during the summer, and one week during winter. The rest of th4 year the officers and men live in what is called a " parent "-or "mother" ship.-but they "exercise" the boat three or four times a week, generally from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., go ing through various evolutions, such as diving and "attacking," and also torpedo-firing. Let us go down through the hatch: way of the little conning tower. A few rungs of ladder and we reach then main deck, the only deck, in fact, of the submarine, inside the "fish," in the hull.

SHRIEKS FROM A RAILWAY CARRIAGE. - +---- A young lady who is often seen eon Birmingham concert platforms had a singular and amusing experience when returning with a friend from London. Just before reaching Ox ford the speed of the train began to slacken, and -the. engine to emit some particularly loud and piercing whistles. Our heroine pronounced the note to be C in fault, and wae challenged by her companion to reach it. There' being no one but the pair in the compartment sha responded with a great expanse of lung power, and to such effect that the sound of the engine' was as nearly as possi'ble reproduced. Whistle fol lowed whistle, and to each an echo came from the throat of the singer. This continued for some minutes un til all at once the train slowed. down and then stopped. Heads went t-o windows and it was evident some thing was wrong, for the guard was along peering into each carriage. As he came to that in which were the two ladies. he repeated the query he had evidently bee...

A GOOD WORD FOR TOBACCO. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 10 January 1914
A GOOD WORnD FOR TOBACCO. In the opinion of Cavallaro, who writes in an Italian paper, tobsacco has a very. strong batetricidal power depending to some extent on its con tent in nicotine,. and partly to the resi sance of bacteria present. In all cases tobacco sterilises the ,saliva, and does no damage to the teeth, which become and remain black it not properly looked after. A small quantity of nicotine stimulates sali i vary excretion, but a large amount diminishes it. It i wrong to at tribute inflamations of the gtums and buccal mucous membrane to the in fluence of tobacco. This last is only the determining factor in a pre-exis ting inflamr?atory .rrocess, wbether latent or manifest.' It is, however, by no means proved that epithelioma of the tongue and lis is exclusively due to tobacco" snic?king. The author relying on this antise ric astion e! tobacco, calls for an increase, not a d iminution, in the ranks of smokers:
