How I Saved My Hair. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 14 March 1914
How I Saved My Hair. " My hair was thin, short, dry, and brittle. Every time I combed or brushed it large quantities came out, and I had begun to fear that soon I should be entirely bald. A specialist whom I consulted said mine was a particularly bad oase of dandiuff-so bad that he knew of only one thing which he could hope would overcome the trouble and restore my scant tresses to their former luxuriance and beauty. He told mo to get my chemist, lo prepare a lotion composed of three ounces of bay rum, one ounce lavona de coinposee and quarter dram menthol prystals.and to rub this into tho scalp t.vicc a day with the finger tips. I was sceptical, but did as I was told. To my delighted astonishment I soon noticed that my hair had stopped falling out, and in a few weeks my head was covered with a new growth of downy hair. I continued the use of the lotion until 1 possessed a head of hair, all my own, that is the wonder of all my friends. My specialist says lie has known of many cases ...
Onion Growing. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 14 March 1914
Onion Growing. There is a romance, or at nny rate an interesting history, about every branch of farming, if yon look at il in the proper light, ant! even in growing such an unromantio root as the onion. lror years Bcllarine and Portarlington were looked upon as the natural home ot the onion, and any effort to grow this crop outside these areas was regarded as doomed to failure, as, even if lliey grew, they were said to have no keep ing qualities, especially i( grown away (rom tliu sea coast. Time has disproved these theories, and now Colac is the largest onion producing district in Australia, being largely helped to that position by the ravages caused by " cclwonn" in llie older districts. The pioneer in this industry was Mr. T. Baker, of Coragulac House, Cilac, who seized the opportunity, when Cororonke Kfctate was subdivided and sold in ISS5, to secure sonic of the rich black soil, which he had long believed would grow onions to perfection. The best blocks wore offered with the ho...

Netting in the Cutting. [Newspaper Article] — Koroit Sentinel and Tower Hill Advocate — 14 March 1914
Netting in the Cutting. Some residents of Warrnambool, in terested in the fishing at the Hopkins river, are desirous of being allowed to use drag nets in the Merri swamp, commonly known as the cutting. As a matter of fact they have been illegally netting there for some time. The local police, at the request of Koroit and Tower Hill people, endeavored to stop the practice, seizing a net nearly a chain in length, and taking .the names of offenders, as was previously reported in these columns. This hap pened about a month ago but' for some reason a prosecution was not sanctioned by the authorities, and the matter has apparently been allowed to drop. It is now reported that representations have been made to the Chief Secretary to have the netting restrictions removed. About twenty years ago the place was proclaimed with the object of preventing potting. Mr. Murray, the Chief Secretary, would no doubt like to oblige a section of his constituents, but if the facts ol the case are fairly p...

Dyspeptics Need Not Diet. A SIMPLE MEANS 01' PREVENTING FOOD FERMENTATION. Food fcrmcn(;ition is the cause of nil the cliseomfoit and pain dyspeptics suffer. Jt does not necessarily follow, however, that in order to obtain relief they must deny themselves the enjoyment they derive from eating so-called indigestible luxuries. The most satisfactory method of overcoming the difficulty would be to prevent the fer mentation Irotn occurring nt all, and this can bo done by a very simple means. It must first he explained that most of the foods we eat contain a certain quantity of acid forming elements and indigestible foods, of course, contain a larger propor tion. When these foods are taken, the acid collects, irritates the walls of the stomach, and causes the food to ferment while it is digest ing. This fermenting food also gives oft gas which distends the stomach, causing that full, uncomfortable feeling so often noiiccd after eating. The root of the trouble is the acid fermentation. To ...
