SUNDIALS. THEIR ANTIQUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 March 1914
THEIR ANTIQUITY. The antiquity of the sundial is not the least of its charms. Primitive man obtained some idea of the timea by placing a stick in the ground and noting how the shadow fell. The an clent Greeds had their sundials, and among the Elgin Marbles in the British Museum is to be found at four-faced dial unearthed at Athens. The Romans adopted sundials from the Greeks, and Cicero- has placed ol record the fact that he possessed one at his villa. The general adoption of sundials throughout the civilised world was due to clerical influence, for the e rly Popes ordered that surn diais should be placed on various churches, in order that the people could ascertain the hour of the day. The use of ,sundials in England mad be said to date from the introduc, tion of Christianity. The Venerable Bede' specially interested himself in the'matter, and every monastery hae its sundial. After a time every man of substance boasted one, and the old prints depicting Elizabethan gardens always sh...

:.Paraffn and Long Life. -- " L . ... ... WHAT MEDICAL EXPERTS THINK, Muich has appeared in the press of recent months on the virtues of puri fied paraffin for internal use, and chemists report that a strong de mand has set in, and the doctors are prescribing it successfully. ' Life ' -in which details first appeared as to Sir Arbulbnot Lane's experi ments with paraffiin oil-publishes further details in its April issue. The following is a summary of 'Life's' article: 'It is claimed for purified paraf fin that it is simply a pure lubricant that cannot be absorbed into the system, and so it relieves constipa tion and its allied ills without up setting the patient or weakening the natural digestive fluids. This means much to folk in the habit of using harmful purgatives.' Life' then quotes the views of leading medical men, and supplies the en dorsement of. paraffin by -the 'British Pharmaceutical Journal,' which states: 'Liquid paraffin has been used in toilet preparation and nasal med...

RUNNER BEANS AND DROUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 March 1914
SRUNER BEANS AND DROUGHT. "Vegetarian," writing to an Eng 'ish paper, ,gives the results of water ing runners during a dry spell. Ob serving that one of his neighbours had very poor results, althougi( the roots were well watered, he set to work in his own garden by watering a row at the roots only, never al lowing the water to touch the leaves, whilst a second row was treated by watering both leaves and roots, with the result that the latter produced pokls a foot long, whilst the former only gave .pods of three inenes. "Vegetarian" says that in a wet season very few pods fail to set, but that during a dry spell it is not so, and that artificial watering of leaves as well as roots is necessary to se cure amood setting of pods. Some people work into the poultry businesso, while others drop in, and, not understanding how to swim, flounhcr about and are drowned. Dislike of detail is a prominent cause of failure, with poultry,. which -demands close undivided attention to the. small. thin...

FRUIT CREATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 March 1914
FRUIT CREATIONS. --------+--- A few .years ago the rural world was very much agitated , about the reports concerning the wonderful re sults -.following the work of plant breeding, which had been carried out b1y Luther Burbank. Some of these reports were very much discounted, and, indeed,. one of. the American farm papers exposed what it claimed was a fraud upon the public so call-: ed the wonderberry. Still it was far as utility' was concerned of the plant afterwards shown that any mnisrepre-. sentation which might have cropped up was not the result -of anything: that Burbank might himself have said, but due to the zeal of the syn-: dicate which undertook to put his plants upon the market. The hostile criticism, therefore, waned so as to give: :time a chance to prove the, util `ity of the ;creations which the brain :I f tis .had designed. Some of these plants are being tried in Australia, anid .there are very warm advocates of at least, a few of them to be found amnongst:. the exper...

The night being warm, some members went to St. Kilda and others to the Opera House.

THE FARM. STOCKING AND OVERSTOCKING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 March 1914
THE FARM. -+-- STOCKING AND OVERSTOCKING. An experienced farmer will see that his grass paddocks are stocked with just the number of sheep or cattle that will entail neither shortage of feed or waste of grass. 'Judicious grazing can never be accomplished on large wide-ranged areas where English grasses are sown, and , the fence is a most necessary adjunct to successful and economic pasturing of stock. A large area appropriately divided with, fences and the. stock rotated from one paddock to another will carry quite fully half as many head again, if not more. The stock will, moreover, do better and be much healthier, adding very substantially to the settlers' income. Moving them from one paddock to another as the feed is eaten down and becomes foul ed with the droppings of the animals will give each paddock a chance to get thoroughly washed and cleaned with rains, making the flush of grass awaiting , grazing after the spell wholesome feeding. Such paddocks, too, can stand heavy stock...
