WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 7 August 1914
WOMEN'S INTERESTS. (By "Ambrosine.") The reasons we do not walk well are S ny. Here are a few. We, those .I us who live in towns, spend a far greater part of our days in trainsland trams than on our own two legs. We do not know how to sit or stand. We seloom realise we cannot walk becau.' I,,s of the people round us can . walk either. Most of our men folk seem to imagine it is our clothes that are wrong, not ourselves, -and we are quite ri dy to fall in with this beliht and go to all. sorts of trouble to e form our clothes rather than ourselves We think walking is so simple, we ne.J not take any trouble with it. A doctor once said to me, " There are only three medicines in the world; air, water and exercise." Funnily enough, most of us would rather spend much money on patent medicines and beauty doctors than use the medicines we can get for nothing. Of course, air and exercise are first cousins and water is fast becoming known as their best accompani Wnnt. -To .Avalk well you must f...

FEARf OF DEATH STILL HAUNTS ABUL HAMID. "SOUVENIRS" SHOW RED SUL TAN REMARKABLY INTELLI GENT BUT ALWAYS FANATICAL. (Paris Correspondent New York 'Sun') In the mysterious recesses of his palace prison at Constatinople Abdul Hamid, the IRed Sultan, once the most feared man in the Turkish Empire, is as one dead. Not a word, not a sound from him has come to .the out side world, and quaint old Stamboul so busy nowadays in modernising It self, hardly knows of his existence. Europe heard a report some months ago of Abdul's death, but ,it turned out to be only unfounded rumor Abdul Haqmhas;,bcenr-in--Coinstii tinople since the outbreak of the Bal kan war, when he was .transferred there from Salonica. In Salonica he had lived as a prisoner since the day in 1909, when he was dethroned ia the result of the Young Turk revolu tion.

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 7 August 1914
POULTRY NOTES. There are very just reasons for tak ing seriously the tollowing remarks on up-to-date poultry literature and pre sent day methods. You must set youy mind at ease on the very potent fact that the knowyledge gained by experi ence in the past decade, and which is now so easily obtained, is the one .h.ng more than all else that has set poultry pursuits on a correct basis. This knowledge is detailed month after month in good poultry papprs. And be it known to you I can assure you our Australian poultry papers are to be congratulated on the abundance of superfine and exceedingly practical ar ticles which now aNypear in their pages. I am a constant, student of all that is new in poultry literature. ' I pick and choose from England's best pap ors, and from those from the United States. But when, it comes to the Australian made poultry paper, I do not hesitate to say we hold our own, and do something more, when the question is, "Where can I get the most suitable hints oni hous...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 7 August 1914
.OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") At brecsnt, . wuen their position is aboutu aus acute. and listressing as it possibly can be, conmments and advice on the growing of fodder for dairy cows is not likely to appeal to the owners of stock in the dry. northern areas. No matter how clover and resourceful they may be, they cannot produce with out the necessary moisture. ' That fact is obvious to everybody. There are many parts of the State, however, where an assured rainfall is experi enced, and there dafrylpen should cer tainly make adequate provision each year for the maintenance of their ani mals in the most effective condition. Those who hitherto have not done all that they might and ought to have ae coimplished in that respect should, with advantage, study and digest the ob servations recently miade by Mr. A. F. Furniss at a meeting of the Longwood branch of the S.A. Agricultural Bureau. Speaking with rrfer'nce, of course, particularly to the hills districts, he said from the begin...
