OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS A large number of letters, have been . received by the "Express" in support of a plea for overworked > and under paid hospital nurses. The following is typical of many:— uAs a certificated nurse, with expert ence both of London and of provincial hospitals, Jet me thank you for taking up the hard case of the nurses gen erally. Few persons really realise what nurses' hours are. The night work is, ias a rule, twelve hours seven nights a week, and Bank Holidays bring no respite. The aproaching Christmas holidays mean to nurses only extra work and .• extra expense in the way of helping to pay for the decoration of their wards. It is really a horrible time, so far as they are concerned. At one hospital I . was' in at Christmas time a fancy dress ball was arranged for the staff after the "festivities" for the patients were over. But, alas! every one — doctors- and. nurses alike — was so "dead beat" that it was quietly allowed to fall through. I cannot unders...

USE FOR FALLOW LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

USE FOR FALLOW LANDS. It is questionable if one non-fallow ing wheat-grower could be found in any part of Victoria. Not only so, but also every part of the fallow and four course rotation system, combined with sheep-keeping, is being steadily adopt ed. The cleanness of the crops this year, and freedom from wild oats, sor rel, and other •yeeds (speaking gener ally, of course, because there qre still a few exceptions) are noticeable as a direct outcome of the improved agri culture. The importance of "work ing the fallow" is no longer doubted, and the instances are increasing in which fattening fodder for the sheep is being grown on the fallow, thus sav ing the one-time loss of a year under the bare fallow system, while keeping I the land in heart by an annual nitro genous re-fertilisation of the soil. \ I

THE FARMER'S POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

THE FARMER'S POSITION. How many of the well-groomed, well- : fed people in the . cities ever stop to . . think what would happen to them if. the farmer should leave the land, or to ask whence came their daily bread? The only occasion on, which they think of the farmer at all is when they scan their grocer's bill and conjure up vis ions of a rapacious robber out on the land, who in fiendish glee is boosting the cost of living. They do not know, or if they do very often they do not care, that the man on the farm, at the mercy of flood, drought, pestilence, and all tlie insect plagues of Egypt, is patiently and industriously t doing his duty, and that vei'y little of the ulti mate pr^ce of his product finds its way into his purse. It would be "well if our cousins in town could-see the man on the land from a new and more correct ; angle. The girls who tell you 'that dia monds are vulgar are those who have.! none. If a inan has no sense of humor lie is sure to "be funny at tlie wrong tim...

TO DESTROY SORREL. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

TO DESTROY SORREL. Sorrel is a considerable nuisance in many cultivation paddocks, and. farm ers will be interested in learning par ticulars as to the best means of destruc tion. South Australian wheat-growers have eradicated this weed by putting on sheep to eat the plants close to the ground, after which the land is well ploughed and the sorrel knocked ahout as much as possible with the harrows and cultivator during the hot weather. A Tasmanian farmer gives the fol lowing helpful information for ' its eradication:—"I can guarantee a prac tical clearance of the rubbish if the | land is treated with lime and some form of potash. Sorrel appears to come very strongly after using superphos phate £or several years, and the root formation thickens and strengthens. It is when it reaches such a stage that it is most difficult to get rid of. On the fallow I should use the spring-tooth cultivator freely during the hot wea ther, so as to kill the big roots by means of the sun's rays. If they c...

NITROGEN FIXING PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

NITROGEN FIXING PLANTS. The question often arises whether there are any other plants besides the great family of legumes that are capable of acting either alone or with bactaria and fixing nitrogen. Our knowledge in regard to this subject is as yet very incomplete. iSome ex perimentalists have insisted that the property of fixing atmospheric nitro gen is quite general among plants. It lias been claimed to exist in wheat, oats, mustards, and a variety of other plants, including algae. The claims have been advanced that the property is a general one, and that the, legumes only differ from other plants in that their power in this respect is greatly comes from the presence of tubercle bacteria in their roots. These conclu sions are certainly not demonstrated, and are quite generally discredited, There is practicsuly no evidence for a belief in such a general- nitrogen-fixa tion power, nor have we any reason for believing that the property of living^ in symbiosis with bacteria, and thus ...

Mr Gordon Hewart, K.C., M.P., out lined the facts of what he called a "repulsive arid cowardly crime." Mr Bardsley, a married m&n, fifty-four years of age, carried on the business of a bookseller and stationer in York shire street; ■ Oldham. He used to | sleep at the house of his brother in Egerton street, some distance away, and was found by the night watchman at three o'clock on the morning of Sunday, July 27, lying in a pool of blood on the floor of the back room of his premises. Near his head lay an Indian club and a dumb-bell. He was besmeared with blood, and blood was also found upon the shelves to the...

STREET BATTLE CATTLE-DEALERS FIGHT CADETS [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

STREET BATTLE CATTLE-DEALERS FIGHT CADETS One killed and five dangerously and others slightly wounded is the casualty list of an extraordinary fight in Lue beck streets late last night between a party of Rhenish cattle-dealers and young cadets of the Liuebeck Navigation School (reports the Berlin> correspon dent of the "Daily News" of November 15). The trouble began at the so-called Cavalier Ball in a restaurant. One of the cattle-dealers threatened to throw a glass of beer at one of the Naviga tion students. The insult was preven ted by the landlord, but the students and some Luebeck rowdies who joined them waylaid the cattle-dealers and their friends outside, and a regular fight began. Fists, decanters, sticks, beer-glasses, and finally long knives came into play. Suddenly one of the Navigation stu dents named Vokan screamed, and tell lifeless. The knife of one of his op ponents had pierced his heart. His scream and fall passed apparently un noticed, and the' parties continued ...

CLOVER A SOIL IMPROVER. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

CLOVER A SOIL IMPROVER. Clover is tKe best soil improver, be cause it better fills the soil with roots, which decay and fill the soil with hu mus. The clover belongs to the class of plant which are nitrogen gatherers. Clover feeds or mineral matter in the soil, and nitrogen in the air out of the reach of crops. The clover is a more valuable food than most grasses, be cause it contaim more protein; the manure is more valuable than from Tiniothy hay, and the roots left in the ground contain so much nitrogen that when we can grow clover successfully we are on the ivay to solve the most difficult problems of farming. Farm ers who stop growing clover are mak ing- a great mistake, and they should study the £lant and how to grow it. The main cause of clover not growing well is lack of lime in the soil. There is nothing of such importance as get ting back to clover-growing. Organic matter in the clover is the farmer's' bank account, and clover best furnish es it. Lime and good tillage will ...

The large crops on many varied soils',1 following wet seasons, ought to be an object-les son, the value of which should not be rejected. But there is the fear.that, in many cases, it will have the con trary effect—that Nature, having given an exceptional quantity of water on one occasion, the farmer will rest sat isfied that this will recur in the future. Instead of taking advantage of the fact that he could himself ensure a pro per water supply, it is thought prob able that lie will still continue to leave : the efficient -watering' of his land to chartce.

DOMESTIC REVOLUTION WIFE'S CLAIM TO RESIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

DOMESTIC REVOLUTION WIPE'S CLAIM TO RESIDENCE. A wife asked the Chancery Court (Mr Justice Warrington) to declare that the house was now hers in which she and her husband had lived for 27 years after their marriage which took place in 1883 (reports t'he "Daily Mail," November 18). The husband made a corresponding claim on his own behalf. Mr H. Terrell, K.'C. (with him Mr Davey), said that the plaintiff in the action was Mr Frederick Lucas, and the residence in question was 37, Park House street, Camberwell. Mr Lucas was the maker of gauge rules which were used by Custom House officers and publicans in gauging spirits, etc. It was a lucrative business, and Mrs Lucas managed the financial part. The house was purchased in 1907 with money mainly withdrawn from depo sits in the Post Office Savings Bank in the name of the wife. The conveyance was.taken in the wife's name, and the house had remained in her name. For some reason unknown to counsel the wife left her husband in 1910. She simp...

PARSONS AND HUNTING VIEW OF ARCHBISHOP OF YORK. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

PARSONS AND HUNTING VIEW OF ARCHBISHOP OF YORK. In dedicating on Sunday at Moor Monkton Church a memorial window to the late Rev. Charles Slingsby, who was killed while, hunting, the Arch bishop of York defendied the associa tion between hunting and the life of the professing- Christian (says the "Daily News" of November 18). He would be a very bold man, r.aid the Archbishop, who would argue that hunting was so cruel that it was abso lutely wrong. "It is very difficult to express an opinion," said Mr James Buckland, when seen on the subject by a " Daily News" representative. "The advocates of the sport argue that it brings a great deal of money into the country, and, again, the existence of the, fox depends largely upon it. It is a question whe ther it is better that the fox should be shot by the farmers on sight or bred for hunting purposes." If hunting were to cease, in a few years the fox would be exterminated. Mr Buckland said he was acquainted with a charming clergyman who hunt...

HOBBIES GIVE ME THE PIP [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 5 February 1914

HOBBIES GIVE ME THE PIP Hobbyitis is worse than appendi citis, neuritis,; or any other 'ltis. These can be cured, but hobbyitis is a malady beyond the surgeon's kmte or the doctor's medicine. It is ex cessive inflammation of the possessive faculty. It grips you, grows on you, over you and in you, until life is a burden to vourself and others. It creates sel fishness, wastes one's life, ruins one s pocket, and, after all, what has been achieved ? Simply this ; that some ob jects which before were scattered have been painfully collected in a heap. Yet parents are seductively urged by certain scribes to see that their chil dren have a hobby. Are the writers stamp dealers, fretwork tool makers, rabbit and guinea-pig dealers? You try hard to prevent your child catching hobbyitis, knowing not only that prevention is better than cure, but that there is no cure. Then he catches it through the "Lad's Weekly, or even, alas! your own favorite pen nyworth. His '.bachelor "uncle comes along and ...
