AUSTRALIA—A SEA-NATION. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 7 February 1914
AUSTRALIA-A SEA-NATION. Australians' are inclined to look up on themselves as a nation of land lubbers, and to regard the infant navy rather in the light of an experlb ment on the embryo sea-prowess of the inhabitants, As usual, it is tha onlooker who sees most of the game, and the incoming visitor is invariably impressed by the number, size and variety of. craft which Australian harbours are called, upon to accom modate, . . I , . , . . The wharfs are filled with large ocean-going liners, and the visitor is impressed with the many vessels pro sumably, in communication with the Old World. The Englishman's idea of a coastal steamer is a small ves sel of 500 to 1500 tons, in which he despairs of finding even comparative comfort or space, and so resigns him, self to a period of forced inactivity and misery combined, His first .wakening comes when he learns ' that the pala tial steamers which he credited with a round-the world run are in reality Australia's coastal fleet. These 10,000, ...
TROPICAL DISEASES RESEARCH WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 7 February 1914
TROPICAL DISEASES RE. S:ARCH WORK. The extreme isolation and the hot climate of Northern and Central Aus tralia tend to make that portion of" the Commonwealth peculiarly liable to attack by tropical and sub-tropl cal diseases, Until quite 'lately medi cal research .in these districts has been unknown. Many old and some new diseases have lifted their ominotsi heads and flourished, with very,' little challenge from science or humanity. That dread scourge,, enteric fever, has clainied riore than its: fair share of the young. bloodof the country; while malarial. fever, ague, and many more ills of the flesh pursued their way unmolested, In addition to these home enemies, the daily increasing communication with many Eastern ports, opens yet another door of at tnck ;and ,when iunknown and: subtle perms in~inuate' their entrance into -Australia:ýthe" 'medical fraternity will have yet aiiother problem to tackle. This.danger has been realised by' Australia'ns, and, the necessity for ac curate...

ANTIDOTE TO SNAKEBITE. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 7 February 1914
ANTIDOTE TO SNAKEBITE. ------+--- All through Australia, countrymen when doing their work, are daily risking death by snakebite, Although the effect of many indigenous specl mens are not deadly, the majority are at least extremely dangerous-as a glance, at the year's fatalities will show. Snake charmers, also, who have become nmmerous, and who claim to possess a sure cure, the use of which will completely counteract the poleson occasionally are discovered to be false prophets. Only lately, both in Sydney .-and Melbourne, a member of this profes sion paid the penalty of over-confi drnce in his discovery, It is alleged that a certain herb growing in the Iliverina district is a specific, and no less an authority than Morrissey claims to have discovered it, The plant is well-known to the blacks, and the story runs that the iguana when bitten during combat with a snake,, retires from the bat tlefield, .eats a little of the-herb, and returns unharmed to the charge. Mor rissey heard this l...

FOOD and WATER CONSERVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 7 February 1914
FOOD and WATER CONSER. VATION. Taken as a whole Australia is very backward in adopting moans to re sist the effects of the dry season, which is a. foregone conclusion in the cycle of the years. The abundant "rains which fall in tropical Australia during the wet season simplifies matters immensely, and a little enterprise and foresight would place settlers beyond the reach of danger, As so often happens, the rain has fallen only just in time to save the situation; and' the heavy downpour over so large a portion of Queensland :at Christmas time, wrought an almost fabulous' change in the pastoral and agricultural pros pects, Although, through .its inter-' vention, the farmers' season seemhed secure, the enormous evaporation has counteracted the benefit bestowed, and now grave anxiety is felt as to the probability of another dry, spell induly taxingr their resources, lEvery.sason brings this doubt, and yet our agriculturists delay taking the obvious and very simple means of attaining se...
