JUST AS IT HAPPENED. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914
JUSTl J1 IT HAPPENED. (By BRUNO LESSING?;-it the, "Cosmopolitan.") You were told in the beginning that this would be a rambling, inconse quential' tale--merely a chronicle of the facts as they chanced to happen. Life itself,; you are informed, often progresses' in 'an incoheirent fashion, without rhyme or reason, and the philosopher who 'undertakes to grasp the phenomena of coincidence or the natural sequence of cause and effect usually has nothifg but a head ache for his pains. A man endeavour ing to avoid -a brick falling from- a building in course of construction, takes to the middle of the street. We call this caution. ' Then, unexpectedly, the middle of .the street caves in. What is the use of calling it anything? Lapidowitz, with a chequefor bne hundred and'twenty-five'dollars in his pocket, started- for the bank the mo: 'nent NatlianGomprecht took the dog away.. He' knew -the'cashier of Na than's bank;, and he wanted -to obtain money" for the cheque as quickly as possible. 'C...

By LEWIN FITZHAMON. Published by Arrangement with i Ward. Lock .. Co., Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XLVI. The Court had risen for luncheon, and every restaurant in the vicinity of the Law Courts was inconveniently packed; the busy clink of knife and fork, china and glass, offered a philo sophic contrast to the continuous mur- g mur of subdued argument. The gen eral topic of conversation was Idiss Burney's evidence. The honest way she had stood up to cross-examination was greatly com mented upon and admired; yet a curl. a ous and unreasonable opinion prevail ed that had John Cott bten able to put his last question himself, Angela would have answered differently; this was the hotly-debated topic: was there foundation for a suspicion that Angela took the necklace? There was one quiet corner in an h unpretentious restaurant where there r was no argument. The Earl and Countess of Pettigew sat there; Pett trying to choke down an indifferent sole, while Dainty sat scowling, rum ...

NERVES AND THE WOMAN. Living Too Hard. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914
NERVES AND THE WOMAN. Living Too Hard. This is the age or hard work: whew concentration on whratever. one hap pens to take up is essential to su: cess. The business woman who wants to get on has to work hard and live hard every hour of the day. The pro feaslonal woman who slacks will be passed by other competitors in the race for fame and success. Life is so full .of manifold Interests -that even' the domesticated woman, unless she leads the narrowest of lives, is occu pled all day long. V.'W have all to live and work to the best-of our ability in this .twentieth century, and it is a very good thing that we have, because it is the life that is full of work and interests that is best worth living. But there is another side to the question. Whilst many women can stand the strain and be all the better for it, a certain number break down. ' They develop "nerves," they show signs of wear and tear, of over-strain and con. stant tension. They begin to fuss over little' things, suffer from ...
REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914
REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. At the basis of all ge~uine rotations. lies the fact that plants differ from one another ;they differ from one an other in their demands upon the soil, both chemical and physical: they dif fer with regard to their root system, depth of feeding, their moisture re quirements, their time of feeding, their dates in reaching maturity, etc. Many plants impoverish the soil; a few enrich it; some spoil its physical condition, while others improve it in that regard. Many crops favor the growth of weeds, while others eithei, are able to hold the weeds in check or require such cultivation and treat. ment as. will prevent their growth. All these differences fit plants for different places in rotation, and a welL arranged rotation is one in which the strong points of one crop follow so as to fit into the weak points of another, or vice versa, and in this way reduce deflclencles to a minimum. A crop that requires a large amount ol one element should be followed by one that ...

HOW TO NEUTRALISE DANGEROUS STOMACH ACIDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914
HOW TO NEUTRALISE DANGER OUS STOMACH ACIDS. Few people besides physicians realise the importance of keeping the food con tents of the stomach free from acid fer mentation. Healthy normal digestion cannot take place while the delicate lining of the stomach is being inflamed and distended by. acid and wind-the results of fermenting food in the stom ach. To secure perfect digestion, fer mentation must be stopped or prevent ed, and the acid neutralised. For this purpose physicians usually recommend getting a little bisurated magnesia from the chemist and taking half a teaspoon ful in a little hot or cold water immedi ately after eating. They recommend bisurated magnesia because it is plea. sant to take, has no disagreeable after effects, and instantly stops fermenta tion, neutralises the acid and makes the sour acid food bland, sweet and easily digested, The regular use of- bisurated.mag nesia-be sure you get the bisnrated, as other -kinds -of magnesia are of little value-is an- absolut...

TATYOON. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 17 January 1914
TATYOON. Miss MI. Gould has been appointed postmistress at Tatyoon. Although in a few instances some good yields of wheat are being obtain ed, in the majority of cases the farm. ers are securing only very moderate re turns. Crops that looked good enough for eight or nine bags are turning out only about five, and others in like proportion. Some good hay crops were cut for-hay. consumption. The barley crops have turned out fairly well, but the low price-obtainable detracts con. siderably from the value of the crops; and oats are in much the same posi tion. Some of the farmers ,have boee ham pered in harvesting operations by the scarcity of- wheat bags, which have not been readily obtainable, even at the extortionate p4ces demsndei by SOWlr.
