Relief from these distressing symptoms can be had by taking Mother Seigel's Syrup, which restores the stomach and liver to healthy activity.

THE VERANDAH [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
I think the.,good old rcstom of buying the family's Christmas goose some tire. in No%-ember, and fattening the bird by. hand under the interested eye of the family, is going out, if it has not already practically gone. It took. the. house father a long time to discover that the game- wasn't worth the scandalous nuisance, being usu -ally very tough game,. when all was said and done, and very lean and unappetising. But- I believe-the passing of the practice. is due mainly to tire curious, squeamish feeling civilised man experiences when called upon to eat. any bird, beast or thing with which he has associated on friendly terms for a given length. of time. In such circumstances few of us can quite escape from a vague self accusation of cannilbal ism.' We have fed the bird, guarded itt, won its confidence and esteem, and when confronted with its leg or a few slices of its breast at table our weak, civilised in stincts go back upon us, and all the joy passes out of " that .

THE DRAMA. MONSIEUR BEAUCAIRE . To see ?r. Lewis Waller in M.onsieur Bei~icaire is a siitisfactioiA which SMel' bourhe playgoers, have not .been slow to. appreciate. His name is identified with. tfhe 6iginal creation of the characterr and though "thete is no' reason 'to 'dpreciate :other impersonations, we can recognise ini his rendering of the' part some 'upreme qualifications. The refinement and.delicacy, which distinguish his acting find admire able scope in this interpretation. He dis-. plays all the. personal. charm. of manner and the unchallengeable evidences. of high' breeding which enabled the gallant and. chivalrous "Fren~chmanr to overcome thle prejudices of Bath snobbishness at a glance.' Even the domineering rule of Beau: Nash was powerles& to resist those. in fluences; arid iii the face of an intuitive 'knowledge the despotic autocrat of society exclusiveness forgot to exercise his ordi nary methods of precaution against the inbrtusioii of unqualified aspirants....

HUGE WATER CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
HUGE VWA'ER CONSUUMPTI.ON. The announcement that, the water con sumption in the metropolis oin 21st Deccm ber constituted a record, with 74,579,000 gallons, and that for a week previous the average consumption per day was over 50,000,000 gallons, has led to much specula tion as to whether Melbourne's water supply is adequate to meet continuous de mands of such magnitude. In view of this a statement made. by Mr. Carre-Riddell, chairman of the ?detropolitan Board of Works. on Tuesday, considerable point will be added to the query.. Mr. Rliddell coin menced by stating that December, 1013, constituted a record month for water con sumption in any year within memory. He added the interesting facT that as a rule December was not. a month for heavy calls on water storage reservoirs, the demands being generally most stringent in January and February. Then. came the an nouncement that in spite of the intake from Wallaby Creek the Yan .Yean during the last thirty days has reduced its level fro...

A~~, & ~ rd ANSWERS TO CQORRESPONDENCE. i J.1d.C., Toorangi.-The grass is a very well grown specimen of Timothy or Castail (Phleum pratense), one of the most valuable of all per rennial fodder grasses. It thrives well in cold clay ground. The most. effective way of eradicat ing dodder is by burning; make a good fire of straw, bushes, or any available rubbish, of suffi cient extent to cover the affected area. Export, Narre Warren.-1. The first shipment of Jonathans should be made at the end of Febru ary, only the largest fruit to be gathered, and the rest left to further develop. The same pre cautions must be taken in gathering Idunros and Five Crowns, which may be sent at intervals dur ing March and the first part of April. Sturmers are usually sent in April. 2.

AVAILABILITY OF FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
AVAILABILITY OF FERTILISERS, The value of a fertiliser for crops tdoes not de. pend on its total percentage of anmlonia, phoes phate of lime and potash, but upon the percentage of those constituents that the growing crop can utilise. This is the point that a farmer has rto look at when considering the efficacy of an a tiil cial manure. There are a good, many substalncesr that contain a high percentage of one or the- other fcrtilising constituenls, but the constituents are in such an inert form that they afford little or no nou;rishment to the crop. They "analyse well,." but are bad fertilisers. A glaring instance of this class of substance (the "Mark Lane Espress" poinl' out) is ground leather. It contains a. verS large .percentage of ammonia, but dcromposes it slowly that. it has no right to the title "fertili ser." The plant asks 'for food and' is, given net exactly a stone, but something nearly as hard. With thie present systemn of intensive cultivatioin. in which large quantitie...
THE WEATHER. METEOROLOGICAL DATA. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
THE: :WEATHER, METEOROLOGICAL DATA. As the result of" negotiatioins between the Prime Ministers of the Commonwealth and New Zealand the wireless station erected on' Macquarie Island by the Maw son Antarctic expedition is to be per manently retained. There had been some talk of its demolition on the retirn' of the 'expedition to Australia, but in view of the usetul work it has performed from a meteorological point of view, the sugges tion was made that the Federal Govern -ment should approach the iSew Zealand Government with a view to its retention. 'Mr. Cook' accordingly proposed .to the Prime Minister of New Zealand that the two countries should share the cost of maiintaining the station, and he has re ceived a favorable reply.., Advices from the station of the approach of an Antarcti, disturbance have on. several occasions en abled the Commonwealth Meteorologist to issue a timely warning to ship masters.

TME -CRAI- -SEASON 1912-i3. The. grain season 1912-13 has witn'e?sed a gradual reduction in values of nearly- al cereils, in conformity with the expansion in :production. Under the adverse condi tions that prevailed in 1911-12 prices. had advanced very materially, anil- when the causes responsible no longer existed it .was only natural that- a -readjustment should take .place. The greatest fall has. occurred in barIey, prime malting descriptions to-day being Worth 1/9 per bushel- less than. at the '.close- of the preceding season; - Oats have reacted to the extent of .Od. per bushel, owing. to the realisation by con stumers that the yield -would be ample -for all requirements. i Maize has moved only a few pence downwards on the year, but the range of fluctuations was 1/ per bushel. In this cereal importatiols -from -South Africa and Java. were disturbing factors on, the local: mnarket Wheat has shown few :price variations, and the market closes at only a trifle below the opening, ra...
