TOWN-PLANNING FOR LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 9 January 1914
TOWN-PLANNING FOR LIGHT. Far-reaching refornm in town-plan ning as a primary factor in the battle against tuberculosis was demanded by the architect, Augustin Rey, in an ad dress made beforo the French Society of Civil Engineers According to M. Rey, cities of the future must be so constructed that the direction of all the streets shall correspond to the sun's daily course in the heavens, in Qrder that.the inhabitants may receive the maximumn of light, which is the greatest microbe-killer in existence. The task of architects, he says, will be to plan towns in such a way that every nook and corner shall receive its share of the sun's rays for the greatest possible number of hours daily. On this account he insists that the present system of small apartments will have to go, and their places be taken by smaller and more airy dwellings. He concludes by saying that the present nickname of Paris, "The City of Light," should be that of all towns which care for the health of their in habitan...

THE MENACE OF MARGARINE [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 9 January 1914
THE MENACE OF MARGAR INE Within the last fortnight there was telegraphed from London to the Aus tralian press an ominous item of news for Australian dairymen. The an nouncement was to the effect that the Bermondsey Board of Guardians had resolved to revert to the use of mar girine in the infirmary work house. In this way it was expected to effect a saving of £1500 a year. The step had been taken because the Lical Govern nent Board had issued a mem randum stating that there is no appreciable liff:rence in the nutritive. values of tutter and margarioe. The Lical Go vernment Board is one of the most im portant administrative departments of Great Britain.. It is presided over by a .linister of Cabinet rank, and has in is employ a large staff of skilled offi cials and experts. The prompt action )n the parr of the Bormondsey authori ties may be taken as a sign of the tjmes, and there will be no cause for furprise if other institutions follow its example. If substantial savings can be made...
FIGHT BETWEEN SHOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 9 January 1914
FIGHT BETWEEN SHOWERS. Although- willing to meet death by a sword thrust, the hero of 100 duels has shown that he objects very strongly to having wet feet. He is AM. Rousier Dorcieres, a man who has at his finger ends all the rules and formalities of the duel. One of his chief pleasures is to be master of ceremonies at such meet ings. His courage is undoubted, but -et feet or dirty boots he cannot stand. He had had some small difference about a medical question, and it was decided to settle the quarrel by an appeal to the sword. A meeting was arranged, and at eleven o'clock punctually the ene mies faced one another "on guard." Rapier points threatened-that matter ed nothing; but the sky was grey and promised rain--and that was serious. They set to fiercely, so fiercely that the swords were bent, and new ones had to be substituted. The sun shone dully, and at last the rain came, after 45 minutes of fierce combat. Duellists and seconds were struck with panic, and there was a wild rush...

ARTIFICIAL MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 9 January 1914
ARTIFICIAL MANURING. The whole object of artificial -manur ing being to supplement the deficien oies of the soil, it is highly desirable that a farmer should ascertain by trails in.-the field what is the actual amount of increase which he obtains from the application of the manures he purchases A few carefully-made ex periments will teaoh him- what his land and crops are really in need of. Should lie use superphosphate as well as nitrate of soda for his wheat? What dressing of the nitrate' is most econo mical? . Is superphosphate alone suffi cient for his turnip crop, or should ammonia or nitrate -be. employed as well? What is the smallest quantity of superphosphate sufficient tor the crop ?

FACTS ABOUT THE SILO. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 9 January 1914
FACTS ABOUT THE SILO. Twenty years' experionce in the use of the silo has brought about some faots about which one and all are ag reed: 1.-That a large amount of health ful cattle food can be preserved in the silo in better condition with less ex pense of labor and land, than by any other method known.. 2. That silage comes nearer being a perfect substitute for the suoculent food of the pasture than any other food that can be had in the winter. 3. Thirty pounds a day is enough silage for an average sized Jersey cow. Larger cattle will eat more. 4. A cubic foot of silage from the middle of a medium sized silo will av erage about 451b weight. u.
