COMES THE Iwrses' A TESTIMONY TO I Bucltingh m Avenue, Coburp, Vic-, 3 4 12. CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. " I know Clements Tonic is used extensively by the profession, and nurses know its value and are seldom without it. Once a patient got very weak and low spirited, and 1 gave her Clements Tonic. A few doses made a change (or the better, she rapidly be came bright and cheerful, it gave her health and strength and soon put her on her feet again, which made her a firm believer in Clements Tonic. Since, I have given it to many patients with the same good results, 1 am at a loss to know how we, who look after the sick, could get on without that splendid medicine. (Signed) NURSE GARD."

HASTENING PLANT GROWTH. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 February 1914

HASTENING PLANT GROWTH. Tlio new methods of increasing plant growth by artificial means, which liavo recently given promising results, are de pendent, in the one case, on the light from mercury vapour lamps, and in the other 011 the use of radio-active matter incorporated with the soil. The Timed •states that interesting experiments re cently curried out with mercury vapour lamps by Mi.*s h\ (J. Dudgeon in -Dum fries showed that in certain cases seeds germinated several weeks earlier with the aid of the light than when grown in the natural way. The time for ger mination under the influence of the ul- i tra-violet rays l'rom the lamp was .11 I days iu the case of carrots us against 20 days when grown naturally, while maize germinated in eight days instead of lit'ty-seven with the aid of the mer cury vapour light. Wheat, barley, and various other see^s were tested ami iu all cases a hastening of germination resulted. Strawberries cultivated in the ultra-violet light gave an increased ...

A UNIQUE ENGINEERING FEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 February 1914

A UNIQUE ENGINEERING FEAT. A most interesting engineering feat is at prosont being attempted in Switz erland at Fully-eu Valais, whero a hy draulic electric installation is to bo driven by the pressure of water from Lako JFully, situated over 180U feet above tlio I?hone plain, where the power station vill bo situated. The peculiar feature of the eutorprise is the great height of the supply. The attempt has never before been made to utilise the fall of 1S00 feet, and in technical cir cles it has been hitherto regarded as impossible But a Lausanne engineer, M.^Bouclier has undertaken the work with every confidence of success. The pressure is so great that it is impossible to allow a direct ilow, according to La Techniquo Modernc, which gives par ticulars of the enterprise. The water will (low to the valley by way of a con duit nearly three miles in length.

NATURE'S GERM-PROOF TINS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 February 1914

NATURE'S GERM-PROOF TINS, j "Packed in germ-prool air-tight tins," runs the advertisement of a new j line of preserved food. One of the most | useful inventions of modern times, iu- ; deed, is that of being able to preserve i fresh foods indefinitely. Like most in ventions, lio\\vver, it is not original. Nature was the iirst to invent a germ proof package. Dozens ol' her preeious seeds she protects from microbes, one of the best examples of her care being the banana. The skin of the banana is, iu fact, not only proof against the attacks of microbes, but it protects tlie inner pulp from insects and from tho decay ing influences of the air. For that reason the banana is one of the best fruits to eat, for the chances are prac tically nil of it carrying disease germs. Many nuts, too, are air-proof and germ proof. If you crack a nut and it is bad inside look carefully al. the. shell and you will iind that a hole has been bored in it by an insect, causing it to rot. Nature, too, protects ...

DISTRICT NEWS. | i Port Franklin. (From our Own Correspondents). A well-nttended meeting of the Port Franklin and'District .Swimming e'ub was held on .Saturday night last, Sir. L. Neil in the chair. The correspondence showed that well-known Uippsland professional swimmers desired to join the amateur ranks. A letter from Mr Thos.

It is the intention of the club to ex cavate a shallow bath above the tide mark for learners and children. The secretary reported the completion of the new club and dressing rooms at a cost of £15. As the finances of the club arc £8 to the bad it was decided to make united effort to wipe this off. The club ball on Friday (the lirst of a series) was next attended to. A committee consisting of Messrs. A. Dark, W. Phil pot, E. Avery, T. John ston, L. Neil, (.}. W. .Johnston and 11. T'ruscott were appointed to carry out the necessary...

PIGS AS BAROMETRS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 February 1914

PIGS AS BAROMETRS. Probably the last tlimg that one would expeot to indicate changes in the weather is a pig's tail. However, according to the skipper of a Nor wegian sailing ship, who usually has a porker or two on board, ono could scarcely have a moro rcliablo barom eter When a weather disturbance is coming /on, the tails of the pigs, usually kinky, straighten out and their oars droop. With the barometer reading between 29.90 and 30 tho tails begin to forecast approach of a trough x>f low pressuro. Wlion tho readiog gets below 29.50 tho pigs sco'c cover, and the storm is pretty sure to burst within fivo hours. But a high baro meter puts a beautiful twist in the tails, lad the ears stand jauntily stiff "ud with a triflo of a cant forward. The successful man in any business is the ono who can and will make use jf the experience of others—who bus the conrago to discard his own errors ind adopt the truths discovered by 9 there.

ADVANTAGES OF CLIPPING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 13 February 1914

ADVANTAGES OF CLIPPING HORSES. First.—Tho natural process of moul ting or shedding the hair is a draft on the vitality of the animals. The ap petite is diminished, and with work or pleasure, horso exertion is irksome dur ing that period. Clipping or arti lieml removal of tho liair accomplishes in a very short .space of timo- what Naluro requires much more time tc do. In other words, Naturo is an ticipated in her work, and tho ani mal's system saved a call upon it. Second.—A clipped horse is less liable to take cold than a long-coated nurse, becatisQ tho evaporation of pers piration is moro rapid. A "hot" Horse will cool out much quicker with a short coat. Every groom is awuro of tliis fact. Third.—A clipped horso requires le.;s fuel (food) to maintain budily heat than tho long coated horse; therefore clip ping as a matter of economy should Ij generally practised. Fourth.—(A dipped horse lotoks moro cleanly, acts more sprightly, and keeps in • better health. Horses in tended for tho ...

IN A FRIENDLY SORT OF WAY. When a man ain't got a cent and It's fooling >ind o' blue, And tho clouds hang dark and heavy and won't lot tiio sunshine througli, It's a great thing, 0 my brethren, tor a fellow just to lay His hand upon your shoulder ia a friendly sort o' way. It makes a man feel, curious, it makes tho teardrops start, An' you sort o' feels a flutter in the region of tho heart; You can't look up and meet his eyes, von don't know what to say, When his hand is on your sliouldor in a friendly sort o' way. Oh, tho world's a curious compound ^ with its honey and its gall, With its cares and bitter crosses, but a good world after all; An' a good God must iiavo made— leastways that is what I say, When a hand is 011 your shoulder in a friendly sort of way.
