Electric Medication. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
Electric Medication. One of the new features of electric medi cation is the introduction of drugs into the human body through the skin. The Indus trial World tells that this is done by piac ing solutions of any drug upon a sponge, which is made the positive poule and placed against the skin. When the curreat is turned on, the drug is actually drivenl through the skin into the tissues. The ap plication is not at all painful. Thus cocaine has been driven in over a painful nerve, and neuralgia has been relieved by it. Many other drugs have been used in this way. This property of electricity is known as cataphoresis. Operations have been per formed after anuesthetizing the skin and subjacent tissues cataphoretically.

GERMANY AS RUSSIA'S RIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
GERMANY AS RUSSIA'S RIVAL, The Vienna correspondent of tho "Times" writes: W\Vhile Russia has been scoring one political success after the other, the Germans, unobserved, have been de veloping into dangerous rivals. They, trouble themselves little with politics. directing all their efforts towards the commercial conquest of Turkey. They have built railways and factories, and have rendered better service to that naturally favored but badly governed country than the Russians with all their diplomacy. It was the Germans who were the first to open Asia Minor to the tratlic of the world. What has been done by the German Anatolian Rlailway; towards the extension of the cultivation of corn in the territory which it tra verses will ever remain one of the brightest chapters in the history of German labor abroad. Thanks to this incessant activity, Asia Minor will soon be one of the granaries of Europe. Is it astonishing that the Turk likes the Germans, who through their well di rected exertio...
THE FEDERAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
THE FEDERAL ELECTIONS. -------0 - - In connection with the federation referendum on 3:rd June, a complaint was made that there had been an in proper count of votes at liunyip, and the Democratic Federal Union asked the Chief Secretary to have an inquiry. '[r. W. .. Lormer, on behalf of the union, informed the department that only four electors had voted aigainst the Commonwealth kill, while MAr. Whitton, a resident, umade a declara tion that 10 persons besides himself had voted against it at that particular booth. The Under Secretary states that the returns received from the deputy returning officer showed that 28 persons voted against the bill at that booth, and as these figures are larger than those stated in the decla ration, the published report was in correct, and the complaint therefore falls to the ground.
SEED POTATOES. £13 10s PER TON. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
SEED POTATOES. £18 10s PER TON. Potato-growers are complaining of the very high prices now prevailing for seed potatoes. In average seasons seed potatoes bring frot .£1 10s to £2 10s, but the tubers now realise from £L 10s to £li 10s, according to quality. In consequence the ground placed under tillage will bea;r no con parison with that of previous periods. There is also an inferior quality of seed potatoes upon the 1market. The yield for the colinig season from these causes will be very greatly decreaged.
All Evils Follow in Its Train. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
All EVrli Follow in Its Train. The waste of labor, time and morcy involved in liquor is an argument which appeals to men who are not moved by arguments of the usual sort, and too much emphasis cannot be placed upon it. It is the logic of the pocketbook, aid that to most men is the strongest kind of logic. Let it be proved, as it can be, that liquor heaps a tax upon the people a hundredfold more in amount than it returns; that it swallows up more wages and more wage producing energies than all other vices and indulgences put to gether, and you have an argument which carries conviction with it to the minds of many who could not otherwise be con vinced. Aside from all moral consider ation it can easily be demonstrated th:d liquor is a deadly blight upon any corn munity. It is impossible to think of a happy, prosperous, orderly and thrifty conunu Dity where grog shops crowd the streets. We have in mind a village of 8,000 in habitants in the suburbs of New York, where there are upward of...

SEASONABLE POULTRY HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
SEASONABLE POULTRY HINTS" Wheat is now at a reasonable price, and as nothing else is nearly so good for egg-production, I would recommendl poultry keepers to feed on this grain, the best quality of which is always tlI cheapest in the end. - The breeding season is now close a3l hand, and if farmers have not purchn9S ed any good birds they require for breed ing purposes, they should do so at onctC. Two or three pounds well spent in ja breeding pen of good birds, would bo sufficient to keep the supply of birds ne-* cessary for a farmyard, up to the num. ber required. The farm-r could purchasO three or four good stock hens or pullets from one yard, and a cock or cockerel from another, any by breeding fro? those birds, he would very soon improVO the quality of his birds 20 per cent. This would amply recompense him for the additional outlay, and would be the cheapest method of improving the qual ity of his tock. Indian Game are a good cross witt our laying breeds in order to produce i gen...
STUFFY HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
STUFFY HOUSES. The "Hospital" has some significant remarks on the subject of stuffy houses. For lnstance:-"It is a striking and startling thing that the mere removal of a patient into the open air should lower his fever, should remove his night sweats, and take away his hectic, and it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that if these symptoms are removed by the purity of the air outside, they must have been largely caused by the im purity of the air within the house." It is not the consumptive only who suffers. Facts recently brought forward are sufficient to show that the stuffy life of warmth and comfort which civilised man now 'enjoys,' is bad for the health even of the healthiest." Our contemporary goes on to say: "We make our windows fit, we pad our doors, we shiver at a draught, we sur round ourselves with woollen curtains, dusty cafpets, and fluffy, luxurious up holstery; we breathe the same air over and over again, and then' we wonder that we are not strong and vigorous. Th...
THE KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
THE KITCHEN GARIDEN. The weather during the past week has enabled the work to be pushed on with in this department of the garden. Last season in manny gardens the potato scab proved very troublesome. One of the surest remedies is to grow potatoes only on ground not previously used for this crop, and to allow no diseased potatoes to be brought in the place, and to burn all potatoes not perfectly sound, instead of casting them in th* manure heap, as this has been a fruitful cause of spread ing the evil. As a precaution all seed potatoes should be disinfected. To do this, dissolve two and a quarter ounces of corrosive sublimate (poison) in 15 gal lons of water, and immerse all potatoes intended for s-ed in the solution for one hour and a half, then spread them out to dry. Disinfect the knife used for cut ting the potatoes, and do not handle any diseased potatoes whilst planting the seed. A loosely-woven sack may be used for dipping the potdtoes, and they may be washed previous to plant...
THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
THE ORCHARD. Large healthy old trees that fail to bear good crops, or produce fruit of some inferior or undesirable variety, may be induced to produce profitable crops of superior varieties by grafting. Old trees with thick stems should have the branches shortened to near the point of grafting some time previously. All that is necessary, then, when the period arrives for inserting the scions, Is to remove a small portion of the branch, when the bark will be clean and fresh for the operation. The most com mon method of grafting on branches of large diameter Is crown or rind grafting. Several scions can be placed on one stock. It is of the greaest importance to secure scions early in the season. when perfectly dormant. They are usually preserved in this condition by placing them in soil in a shady border, only removing them for preparation previous to immediate insertion. The scions should be wood of the previous year, clean, uninjured, and in a well ripened state, with good bold buds...
