DAIRY SUPERVISION. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
DAIRY SUPERVISION. The dairies registered under the Net South Wales Dairies Supervision Act arc in all cases under the direct local soper, vision either of the municipal or police local authority. The Health department has a staff of inspectors who travel round all dairying centres -in. order to ascertain to what extent and in what manner. the various local authorities are carrying out the duties imposed upon them by the act. At the same time they examine all the cattle from a veterinary point of view, so as to find out where any disease exists. This branch of the work is in charge of veterinary inspectors, assisted by others who have had pracfical experience with stock and dairying. A Sydney exchange reports' that during the year 11,138 dairies were visited, and 362,225 cattle were in spected Condemnations of cattle amount ed to 1126 In addition 550 slaughtering premises were also 'inspected; and 57,079 pigs were inspected at the city corpora tion's yards; while 6101 cattle were in...

PERSONAL Acco·ding to' Miss Olga Netiersole, it is undignified and unusual for leading Eang liseh actresses to esk for engagements. They just- sit around and wait entil a manager comes to them.. The diguity of the player is, indeed, a strange 'and wonderful thiing. There is no false diffidence about the modern literary man. He will praise him self and damn other people with a relish. No one has ever eulogised Mr. Hall Caine and Mr. Zangwill as Mr. Hall Caine and Mr. Zangwill have eulogised them.. Lord Marcus Beresford is a genuine iumor;st. A new member of the Turf Club who played very bad bridge once told Lord Beresford that after a rub his partner had offered him fifty pounds to resign his membership. "Say you won't take it." was the reply, "and he Will ofier you a hundred." lThere appears to be no age limit in mat ters of the heart for tihe Italian tempera ment. A few weeks ago a woman 72 years old, inflamed with jealousy at the atten tionu shown to a younger woman by her septuag...
TIME OF UNREST. VIEWS OF BISHOP INGRAM. LONDON, 26th December. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
TIME OF UNREST. VIEWS OF BISHOP INGRAM. T B IshLONDON, 26th December. The Bishop .of London (Dr. Winnington Ingram) delivered a special Christmas ser mon in, the Fulham 'Church yesterday. In, referring to the progress of arma ments abroad, the strikes in Great Britain, the "threatened civil war" in Ireland, and the violence of suffragetism,. Dr. Ingram rehiarlked that the church itself was face to face with a dispute which, unless pro perly, firmly and delicately handled, might split it in twain. They must, he said, face and not, exaggerate the facts. They must not pray for peace at any price. Better a Balkan war than a thousand years of oppression. Better industrial unrest than the chains of slavery. Better a hot dis cussion in the church if they only found in.the end upon what principles the church was founded. The worst unrest they had seen and deplored might be necessary to thlre path of righteous peace, .which was the only peace that the Christian was ,entitled to pray for.

UNION OF AFRICAN CHURGHES. PROPOSED FEDERATION. LONDON, 22nd December. An animated controversy is in progrbss in connection with a pioposed federation of the non-Roman Catholic churches in East Africa. The Uganda railway opened up a vast field, but the divisions among the non Roman churches gave Romansm and. Mahometanism a great advantage. ?;A coni ference of missionaries held at::Kilkua 'in June last proposed a scheme of federation on the basis of all parties accepting the Bible, the Apostles' and Nicene creeds, and baptism in the name of the Trinity; that unconfirmed persons should not be repelled from communion; and that a form of com mon. prayer should be adopted, based on the Anglican Prayer Book. The Bishop of Zanzibar (Right Rev. Frank Weston), who belongs to the Uni versities' Mission, is now seeking to wreck the federation by accusing the Bishops of Uganda (Dr. Johni. Willis) and Mom bassa (Dr. William Peel), who are mem bers of the Chuirch Missionary Society, of heresy. Th...

DISEASE IN AMBUSH. GERMS ROUTED FROM THE LAUNDRY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
DIMSEASE IN A M~BUSH. GERMS ROUTED FROM THE LAUN DRY. It is only diseases that are infectious that can lie in ambush, ready to launch death amongst the inmates of a home, and when we search the home for the readiest place of ambush we find it in the laundry. This is a statement of fact easily provable; the laundry claims and cleanses every week the clothes we wear, our he:l, table, kitchen and bath linen, handkerchiefs, towels and cur tains. Nothing absorbs and carries the germs or seeds of disease so readily as these; to ambush the ambushing disease germ therefr:es we must begin in the laundry. Next as to 'the method; mere cleansing is not enough, for some disease germs may laugh at boiling water, and may even breed in commoner sorts of soapsuds. The only way to deal with the disease germ is to kill it, L:ecause its life is its powers 'to infect,and only when dead is it harmless; so we must not only begin with the laundry, but must find a laundry soap which is also a strong disinfe...
