INDIGESTION IN PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914
v INDIGESTION IN p,GS Many, of the ailments among; pig?, especially those tliat arre being foxtccd in their feeding, are. brought about in the' first place by indigestion, often .tli'e result of teo much grain or-corn. meal in the diet, rendering: it too heating and lfeavy. When off their food, pjgs oome to/a standstill as regards the process of fattening^ because, what little they cab does them 110 good. The food that fulfills the end desired is that, which is properly and thoroughly assimilated, and nothing else counts. "When a falling off in the- appetite is noticed steps' should be taken at once to set matters: right. Of course, the best plan" is to try and "prevent . this, siokness of -the system tfccurring, but this cannot always bemanaged..

SALT AND SULPHATE OF AMMONIA. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914
SALT AND SULPHATE OF ' 'AMMONIA, It is well, known that the application of common salt to the soil has a benefi cial effect on the growth of many crops. Its use dates hack to the very1 earliest times—in the clays of the Romans is was a -well-known manure' in Italy.'; According to a, note in Mr. Aikman's book on manures, the "Persians and the Ghinese_ seem also to have used it from J#inie immemorial." When there was a heavy duty on salt in England farmers near the-coast used sometimes to apply sea water to their land in order to- get the benefit from it. Salt—chlo ride of sodium—is a ohemicai combixta tion of chlorine and soda; it is probab ly the! latter substance which chiefly ex ercises a beneficial .effect. v.Mr. Hall, director of the Rothamsted Experimental Station, has directed at tention to the value of the soda in the nitrate' of soda.' He has found that when nitrate of soda is used it is not so necessary to apply potash salts, be cause "the soda oan be made to do some of the...
MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914
MELBOURNE , (SVom oui -Special Correspondent.) The good opinioa Australians have • pf theriiseives—oiie ox the characterist ics that teem to strike every visitor—is liot iikeJy to be enhanced by the show ing made by the Defence h'orces when under th? critical eyes ofg "^hat distin guished soldier, Sir Ian Hamilton. The awful muddle of the ceremonial parade ;afc. Royal Park is mortifying not only to those directly .oozicerned, but to Jthe ' whole community. Most people who try to avoid . hasty .judgements, have been slow to condemn some phases J-of the Defence scheme which are, to say the. least, disquieting.

ROUNDED ARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914
ROUNDED ARMS. Should the arms be thin and scraggy, a very simple exeroise will do wonders to produce the curves that are bo at tractive. • Bend the elbow, bringing the forearm up and forward, clench the fist very tightly, tense the arm musoles, then turn the clenched fist round vig orously several times, describing a3 large a circle as possible, but not allow ing the arm to move itself from the position directed. It is also an ex cellent plan to massage the arms about two or three times a week. Warm some pure olive oil and massage it gently into the arms for several min utes. Sponge off with warm water, to which has been added the juice of half a lemon. Dry with a soft towel, and dust with powdered oatmeal. For chapped lips: Many people suffer from this unsightly blemish in winter time, and will be glad to know that if a little pure glycerine is rubbed into the lips before going out they will keep soft and smooth.
SIX CURES FOR SHYNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914
SSX CURES FOR SHYNESS 1. Remember that other people are pretty nearly sure to be just as shy of you as you are of them, even if ■ they don't show it at all. Try to put them at their ease, and by the time you have done so you will be quite at ease your self. 2. Get firmly into your mind the fact that there is no disgrace at all in being shy, and that you needn't be a bit shy of admitting that you are shy. Many of the greatest men and women the world has ever known have been troubled in the same way all through their lives. 3. Don't plan beforehand what you [ are going to say or do, for this will only help you to be nervous and wor ried. Fill your mind w:th something else till the greater moment oomes, and then speak or act quite naturally. 4. Remember that no one is think ing half as much about you as you are about yourself. Therefore dozens of little trifles—an unfortunate word or ^n awkward movement or anything of that kind—wil] slip past other people &lt;[iLte unnoticed th...

THOSE WHO STAY AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914
THOSE WHO STAY AT HOME. There are some in ibis world who are compelled to tarry at home. The great i-aoe of life goes 011, and they are left behind ; they are too weak to run. . . They have nothing to do with the toil of the brain ; their work is all with the heart. But what a work that is! Tim toils of the hand and brain are nothing to it; these yield a solace to their en ergy, but the sad heart has only to bear. It is harder to bear than to do. I may be rudely jostled in the race, hut the race itself gives an exoitoment that makes me forget my pain. I am there, at least, in the company of my fellow men. But to tarry, at home, to wait passive under the shadow of God, to fiavo nothing to do but the burden of one great cross; this is the trial of life I —this is (ho trial of love. t ? i J "Won't, you bo very,, vedy happy ulion your sentence is over?" cheer ' fully asked, a woman of a convict In j prison.

AN EYE HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914
AN EYE HOLIDAY Everybody should give his eyes a day's holiday at least once a month. This is "the opinion of an experienced house surgeon. "In fcbo present age." he says, "we experiejaeo far more eye strain, owing to increased reading ha bits and multitudes of glaring lights, than our forefathers did, and we suilor more from headaches. Therefore, give your eyes a holiday as frequently as possible, Give them a day's absolute rest, and the relief the next day will be most refreshing. When taking an eye-holiday a room with green wall paper is a good nlace to rest in if one cannot get to the country and Na ture's green fields and bees. Green rests the eyes more than any other colour." Kisses are fcho hors d'oeuvres of the menu of love; jealousy is the savoury. •Why is an inclined plane like n lazy young dog? Because it's a slope up (slow pup). }
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 5 March 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. ! Very large liats are extremely diffi cult to hang up securely. The diffi culty can bo overcome by stitching a loop of tape to the head lining of the hat. The loop is easily slipped over any hat peg. When an invalid's room needs sweep ing, the best way is to wipe up the carpet rapidly with coarse towels wrung out of cold water. This dis : poses of the dirt without annoying the patient, either by dust or noise, and is the method employed by trained nur ses. Poisons of many descriptions, which have been intentionally or accidentally Ken, may almost instantly be rend ered harmless by simply drinking half a pint of sweet oil. A person with a strong constitution might take more. Instead of buying penny packets of tab!© salt, pufc two pennyworth of lump salt in a cool oven to dry thor oughly,, then grate and sift it. " With every four ounces of salt, mix a tea spoonful of cornflour, put into jars or bottles, and store for use. It will never got lumpy. A buttonhole worked...

OBITtlAflY. 0 MR. J. T. SUTHERLAND; It is oar sad duty to have to chro nicle the death o£ Mi1 John T. Suther land, which took place at the residence of his mother-in-law, Mrs James Hut ehings, '• Whitehall" Greens Creek, about, six o'clock on Thursday evening (says the &lt;s S taw ell News"). The de ceased who was 47 years of age, had for. the past two years been a sufferer, from Brignt's disease*, and from which : lie eventually succumbed.. The late . r; Sutherland was a native of Stawell • He spent his boyhood at. " Wimmera Park*' subsequently, going to reside for some years at " Rosewell," near Ru panyup. He afterwards came to Stawell and represented the firm of ■Messrs Young Bros., subsequently going to Horsham on the b o° Messrs Haglethorn and Bolton, re linquishing this owing to the unsatis factory state of his health. He was very keenly interested in the - Stawell A. and P. Society, rendering valuable assistance at all the shows of the society. He also took great inte...
SMOKE AMD ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 March 1914
SMOKE AMD ELECTRICITY. Electricity appeared as a solution for the smoke problem in a recent demon stration. The smoke-abating ap2>liance removed the soot from 900 cubic feet of smoke in a minute at a total cost of about a penny a day for operation. The action of the apparatus consists in pre cipitating the solid particles in the smoke by means of a powerful electric current, and its invention is based on the fact that one-third tjo one-half of the solid matter in smoke from smelt ing furnaces consists of particles of iron oxide. Electrical current is applied to the smoke by means of a "wire woven through a number of small pipes placed at the top of the chimuey so that the siuuke must pass through tliein. As soon as the electricity is turned on the small particles floating in the suioke are changed to largo particles which fall back into a bin by their own weight. Its application is not confined, however, to smelting furnaces, for it has been found that the dcvice works as success...
TO CURE "SALT CELLARS". [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 March 1914
TO CURE "SALT'CELLARS" No one need have a scraggy neck and obvious saWwjellars, even if they are thin, writes a correspondent to a London paper. I used to be terribJy afflicted in that way, and could never wear a collarless blouse or decoietie frock with any de gree of beoomingness. Now all my friends envy my full, lirm throat; I've no loose .skin under my chili, and not a sign of a salt cellar . And the remedies 1 used wore so simple. A friend who has studied physical culture in Sweden taught me three head and neck exercises, which havo had such a good result, that I feel I would be -quite selfish to keep them to myself. When doing these exercises, the neck should be bare, The best plan is to do them in a dressing jacket, but as it is advisable to do them at in tervals during the day, as well as night and morning, and at such times it is not convenient to lake off one's blouse, the neck-band and the top hooks should be unfastened. Now for' the exercises: la. Stand erect, look strai...
POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 March 1914
POULTRY NOTES. A Leghorn hen likes hei nest dark ened in some way so she will feel se cluded while on the nest. With dark ened nests hens are not so apt to form the egg-eating habit. When soft-shelled eggs are very nu merous it is a sign the hens are not get-. ting enough egg-shell material. Oys ter-shell should be kept where they can get it at will. It is seldom that feather plucking is practised when hens run at large or are kept busy while oonfined. It takes wit and grit to succeed with poultry—the wit to know how to do the right thing in the right way in our daily round of caretalcing, and the grit to tackle tasks that are sometimes very hard and disagreeable. Every farm should have its flock of turkeys. Breeding stock should be pro vided with grit and charcoal. There is no better medicine for the turkey family than charcoal. Allowing that the rooster is half the (look, then the hens are the other half. Don't pick out the best ones and sell them just because hens are a good pric...
ELEPHANT STICKING. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 12 March 1914
ELEPHANT STICKING. " After the favorite sport of the Nuba Arabs in the Soudan, the roughest football or the riskiest polo seems de plorably tame and mild. In that far away corner of Africa, the most popu lar lorm of amusement in sporting circles is to hunt elephants as British people hunt pigs—on horseback and armed only with a spear. A writer in the "Morning Post" gives a graphic 'account of a morning's sport with these bold barbarians. Elephant hunting, under any circumstances is a strenuous and venturesome pursuit,, and the white sportsman, with the best of beaters and the heaviest armaments, often carries his life in his hands. But the game as played by the Arabs of the iNuba Mountains is far more thril ling, and calls for an iron nerve, a superb horsemanship, and a reckless daring. The elephants graze on the in herds. The Arabs, lean, wiry ath plams and river lends,grouped together ictes, most of them, with keen eyes, leave their villages in the mountains in August, the beginni...
