PASTEUR AND ALCOHOLIC DRINKS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
PASTEUR AND ALCOHOLIC DRINKS. If it were p~Mslbit6 write the his tory of alcoholic drinks there would be Noah, and there would be Pasteur; the one planted a vineyard, the othr used a microscope: Noah happened by chance on the making of " national beve.rages," Pasteur tailsht 'the na tions to be scientific over the making of theni. He revolutionised this colossal industry; the genius of his work is active to-day in every brewery. His lectures to the vinegar-makers or Or leans are a classle, and his sreat book on wines and beers is the "Nonnm Or? ganon" of brewing. So it always is with him; all that he tniuhls torn-to gold-to other men's gold.-Dr Stephen Paget, in the "Comrhill." The Enelish sportswoma is a. nat tern to all foreieners.-W. R. Titter. tea..
Luxury in African Sport [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
Luxury m African -iport Mr S. E. White, in "Badminton,' describes the American in Africa and his difference from the Englishman. A Britisher provides for an American whi would go on caravan into the African back country as many as a hlundred and fifty men as his personal attend ants. The American explodes at the idea of requiring this army of men to look after him. The Englisht friend explains:-"You are under the Equa tor and you must do things different ly here. As lonfg as you keep fit you are safe, but if you get run down a bit you'll go. You're ggt to do your self well, down here, rather better than you have to in any other climate. You need all the comfort you can get; and you want to save yourself all you can." He finds that the style in which th? 'nglishman travels requires this large etnue. For example:--At evening our friend has a hot bath, a long cool fizzly drink of lime juice and soda; he Iuts on the clean clothes laid out for im, assumes soft mosquito boots, amid :s dow...
PENNY FOR EATING A SNAIL. BRAVEST BOY IN THE CLASS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
PENNY FOR EATING A SNAIL. BRAVEST BOY IN THE CLASS. The eating of a snail by a chiid at school at the suggestion of the girl teacher was reported t, Chatham (Eng land) Education Committee, when the chairman, Mr G. F.'Butts, gave an ac count of the incident. The teacher had been asked for an explanation. he said, owing to a com plaint by the boy's mother that the child was sick. The teacher wrote re gretting her thoughtlessness. Her ex planation was that durjlg a lesson on muails the scholars disbelieved her in formation that they were eaten in some foreign countries. She promised a penny to the boy who would eat a snail, and this boy volunteered. She did not coerce him in any way. The committee decided that the teacher should be severely reprimand ed, and the chairman undertook this task. MIr Way said it had been sug trested that the teacher should eat a snail herself. The, snail eaten by the boy was an ordinary one, the teacher confessed to a representative of the London '"Even ing...
SHOOTING EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
i00TIING EXTRAORDINARY. The colmparative gunnery trials be tween the "'rhunderer" and the "Or ion," the former fitted with Sir Peroy Scott's fire director, resulted in a iompleta triumph for the former, says Gerard Fiennes, naval expert in the "Pall Mall Gazette." All the t..formation obtainable leads to this conclusion. Both ships fired under absolutely equal conditions as to wea ther and light; there was a heavy sea running, and the "Thunderer" put just six times as many shots on the target as the opposin ship. An eye witness says that nothing like it could be conceived. The salvoes of five shots from the 13.5 inch guns - in some rounds there may have been ton shots-fell absolutely as one, ele vation and direction being identical for all. Think what this means. If the ten guns of the broadside are fired together, it means plumping five and a half tons of metal filled with high explosive on a few fedt of the eneulmy' hull. Could any ship in, the world survive it? The range was, roi...
THE CURE CORNER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
THE CURE CORNER. It is said that nettle rosh` can ht, cured by rubbing the parts well with parsley, and thalmt an onion poultice is the best thing for easing neuralgic Or rheumatic pains or sore throat. People of delicate digestion should remember that bread that has been toasted until it becomes brown has had the starch in it largely converted into dextrine, and .hence, so far- as tihe brown portion is concerned, one of the processes of digestion is gone through before 'the bread is taken into the sto mach. It will be found that the thinner the slices of bread. the more easy will digestion be, and when all portions of the bread have been thor oughly toasted-not burned, but chang ed to a deep brown oolour-it will be found still more easily digested. Whoc insect bites occur, the immedi ate application of a little ammonia of ten irevents swelling and inflamma tion. It is a good plan to keep a bot tle of oil of eucalyptus, because moc quitos have a deoded aversion to the smell, and wil...

PIGS AS BAROMETRS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
PIGS AS BARO?ETRS. Probably the last thing that one would expeot to indicato changes in tho 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, one cou?d scarcely hayo a more rsliable baron et]r When a weather disturbance is coining on, tho tails of the pigs, usually kinky, straightep. out an3 their ears droop. With the barometer reading b.twaen 29.90 and 30 the tails begin to forecast approach of a trough of low pressure. When the readin;g gets below 29.50 the pigs seek cover, and the storm is pretty sure to buret within five hours. But a high baro meter puts aL beautiful twist in tihe tails, and the cars stand jauntily stiff -ld with a, tallo of a cant forward
GOOD SPIRITS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
GOOD SPIRITS. In, these days one important in gredient of attractiveness is apt to bu overlooked; that is, good spirits. Everyone recognises how much can be dlone to improve the complexion, oi the hands, or hair or figure, by rea sonable care and culture; but it is not so iell understood how much may he done for the spirits. - Yet who woula oeny that good spirits, joie de vivre, brightness, a calm, sunny disposition, are eminently attractive? The first thing is to realise that. good spirits are largely a matter ot will-power, and have little to do' with circumstances. No doubt it is hard to be joyous with the brokers in the house; but we see every day thatu some people mainage to be cheerful, when cheerfulness would seem impos sible. And, as a matter of practical experience, we do not find that the women with- whom the world -oes well, who havy delightful husbands and chil dren, good health and plenty ofi money are the most serene. . Nearly all cheerful people like' their .,:lo?-cre...
CHATS WITH THE COOK. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
CHATS WITH ITHE COOK. To select a bham.-Piorco through the thick part with a meat knife. It the blade draws out clean, the nam is a good one, but if the fatty subs tance sticks to _it, another selection should be made. It should also have a sweet rich smell. After making a satisfactory selection,' wash and scrape the ham until clean, and then let it stanid in fresh water over night. In the "morning submerge it in a kettle of nearly boiling water. Let ;t cook gently for an hour, when' you may throw in a carrot, if there is no ab jection to the flavor, also a sprig oi parsley, or a few cloves and bay leaves. to suit the taste. When the meat is done, let it stand in the liquor until cool, thus leavingsit juicy and tender. Never boil any salt meat severely, but keep it at a gentle simmer until done. To give the ham .a fine appearance, cover it with breadcrumbs when cold, and brown lightly -in the oven. This not only improves the flavor, tr,t makes it possible -to serve the same as baked...

CRICKET STONY CREEK BEATS TRAWOOL [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
CRICKET STONY CREEK BEATS TRA WOOL Cricket is ever an uncertain game, but Trawool's defeat by Stony Creek on Saturday was beyond all expec tations. It'was a meritorious win, too. After putting up a very cre ditable score of 61, agaihst such re doubtable bowlers as C. McKenzie and Anderson, they took the field de termined to make the wickets fly. The first three wickets cost 48 runs, but included in these was Trawool's champion batsman (C. McKenzie) who was disposed of for a modest seven. Young E. Bassett was bowl ing with deadly accuracy and when the last wicket fell he had accounted for eight batsmen for 25 runs, Tra wool's score thei being tour behind that of the home team.

TENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
TENNIS. The district tennis competition was opened on Saturday last under inost favourable weather coftlitions. Never was interest in this splendid pastime so keen as it is a present" This was evidenced on the various courts where competition games were played, by the exceptionally large attendances of onlookers, while the number of recruits in the ranks of the Flayers is phenomenal. Especially is this so in Seymour, where the three local courts are in full swing every evening, the membership of the town clu'b num-\ bering over sixty, whilst the three other clubs have also a large follow ing. It is. however, difficult for each club to raise a team up to the competition standard, so it is im probable that the Alfred shield will remain in Seymour this season. The following are the results of the various niatches : AVENEL V. -STONY CREEK A SC Messrs M. and J. Ryan best Messrs D Fleming and Sanderson 12 10 And lost to Messrs W. Fleming & W.
