TRUE ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 January 1914
TRUE ECONOMY. Economy and economise are two much-used words, but sometimes, we fear, they are falsely applied. Econo my as practised by some persons is ,othing but extravagance, although one might have much trouble in con vincing the person of the truth of this statement. If one wastes time doing work which might -be employed in doing something of more importance-even though the work be very necessary-it is not prac tising economy. He might better hire some other person to have the work done 'and employ his own time at the thing for which he is fit ted. A housekeeper who insists on wash ing, sewing, and doing other things for which she is not physically able may think she is very economical, but if she gets sick, one visit from the doc tor would more than pay for several washings or hire several dresses made by a dressmaker and save her. the suffering beside. What is the use of buying a cheap pair of shoes that cost possibly half as much as a good pair, and have the soles drop- off ...

Memories are like books-a few live In our hearts thirough life and thte rest we read and then forget.

TO AVOID NERVE TROUBLES. Never sleep a- stay in a close room. When indoors remain in the sun niest and best-ventilated room--one, if possible, which has no carpet.

Avoid draughts, dampness, dust and smoke. Keep your feet warm and dry. Don't wear a chest protector. If you have to work, take every chance to rest that you can. Avoid eating when mentally or bod ily tired, or-when in a state of ner vous excitement. Eat plenty of good and wholesome food.
FARM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 January 1914
FARM NOTES. Nature's remedies and methods for curing the ills of man, beast, or soil are always the best and mIost econo mical. Thorough preparation of seed bed, Intelligent selection of seed, and good cultivation are vitally essential and must be employed to ensure suc cess. Modern farming requires varied in. formation, as well as unflagging zeal and industry. It needs the applica tion of commercial ideas. Real suc cess in agriculture can only be at tained by keeping up with changing conditions and developing a well balanced business programme to go with the tilling of the soiL The value of straw as a fertiliser varies. No definite statement can be made regarding its value. In a soil lacking in organic matter is it of far more value than in one containing an abundance of organic matter. In round numbers a ton of straw will contain about ten pounds of nitrogen, six pounds of phosphorous, and 20 to 25 pounds of potash. The best form of lime to use for agricultural purposes is ground ...

A MAN'S FAVORITE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 January 1914
A MAN'S- FAVORITE. A man may not acknowledge it, but he secretly admires the girl who is her mother's right hand in house hold matters, and who is not above taking an interest in the most trivial things in connection with home du ties He likes to think that the girl he hopes to marry can, in an emer gency, turn her hand to anything, from cooking the family dinner to making her owvn clothes. He wants her also to be unselfish enough to give up her own pleasures to benefit an other, and not consider herself ill used at having to do so. This girl can sometimes talk of more import ant things than dress, and can listen intelligently when deeper subjects are introduced. Matrimony has its storms and trials, and to weather these storms something more than a merry heart and a nice complexion are need ful. "You tell me," said the judge, "that this is the person who knocked you down wit'h his motor car. Could 0dou swear to the. man?" "I did," returned the Complainant, eagerly, "but he didn't st...

A DESERTER. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 January 1914
A DESERTER. A private of an infantry regiment deserted one night when he was oh guard at the depot in England. For eight years afterwards he followed the sea as a fireman, and on his last voyage his ship put in at Bombay where he and his mates went ashore. They all imbibed, not wisely but too well, of fiery native spirits, which, combining with the heat overcame them as they were making for the city and their ship after an excursion into the surrounding country, and they all fell into a drunken stupor by the roadside. As they slumbered stertorously, a European infantry regiment marched by, the soldiers glancing curiously at the tipsy sleepers, and some of the Tommies shouted jokes at the oblivi ous firemen. -. One of the soldiers glancing at the seamen as he swung by, started, half halted, recovered himself, and march ed on, but looked back over his shoul der at one of the sleepers. "What's them atter?" asked a ser geant in the rank behind, seeing the look of half-doubting recogniti...
THE VALUE OF COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 January 1914
THE VALUE OF' COURAGE. SA great ?eal of talent is lost in the world for the want of a little courage. Every day sends to their graves a num ber of obscure men who have only re mained in obscurity because of their timidity, which has prevented them from making a first effort, and who, if they could have been induced to begin, would in all probability have gone great lengths in the career of fame. The fact is that, to do anything in this world worth doing, we must not stand shivering and thinking pf the cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can. It will not do to be perpetually calculating risks and adjusting nice chances; it did well before the Flood, when a man could consult his friends upon an in tended publication for 150 years, and then live to see his success afterwards, but at present a man waits, and doubts and consults his brother and his par ticular friends, till one fine day he finds that he is sixty years of age; that he has lost so much time in c...

TO SWEETEN THE BREATH. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 January 1914
TO SWEETEN THE BREATH. Children should be taught to use a tooth-lbrush and some good dentrifice after every mneal, and especially be fore 'going to bed at night. There are few things more offensive than an un pleasant breath, and few things easier to avoid, if proper care is given the teeth. One of the cheapest and most enective dentrifices is common table salt, and lif used with a good brush re gularly very little else will be needed. There are many dentrifices in the mar ket at reasonable prices, and many of them are very good, but some of them are harmful, and it is.well to make one's own dentrifice. If the gums are tender and inclined to bleed easily, select a brush adapted to their tender condition, and do not give them excessive friction. Your dentist will tell you a preparation ~for hardening the gums without harming them. There are some gums so tender that a hard brush injures them. The teeth should be brushed downward from both sides of the upper teeth, and up ward from bot...
HEALTH NOTES. THE NOSE AS A HEATING APPARATUS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 January 1914
. HEALTH NOTES. THE NOSE AS A HEATING APPARATUS. No stove or furnace that was ever made by man can equal in effeiency the human nose. For the nose, in the space of three inches and in two sec ualds o Ln:me, can raise the tempera ture of the air it draws in nearly fifty degrees, and at the same time satur ate it with moisture and thoroughly purify it. It is also a perfect biter, and thus the most important guardian of the body against disease. All air that is breathed into the lungs should be at a temperature ot nearly 30 deg. Fahrenheit. Cold, dry air is fine for the outslme of the Ibody, but has no place in its interior. In neating the air the nose works on the principle of a steam coil. It is not merely two tubes leading up into the neac, and so down to the throat, but from the bones on either side three twisted bones curl out into the pass age, one above the other, each coated with elastic cushions of blood-vessels and tiny glands. These form coils with a great, hot, damp surface...
A NEW ANAESTHETIC. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 January 1914
A NEW ANAESTHETIC. There has recently been discovered a new anaesthetic, which prevents pain after an operation. It consists of a solution of quinine and urea hy drochloride, and before the surgeon begins to operate it is injected .around the affected region. The discoverer says that after the patient has recov ered from the effects of the general anaesthetic the solution gives entire freedom from pain, and that it pro-. motes rapid healing. He believes that it will prove valuable in accident cases, since it will stop the pain in crushed and fractured limbs, and will frequently avert fatal shocks. Injec 'tion of I:te new compound is not fol lowed by intense pain, such as the ad ministration of cocaine often causes. If, after thorough tests, the new an aesthetic proves to be effective and safe, it will be of great benefit to mankind.
HEART PALPITATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 January 1914
HEART PALPITATION. it is rarely, if ever, that palpitation is due to any disease or weakness of the heart. It is almost invariably the result of nervous or.digestive trouble. The 'beat of the heart arises within itself. There are nerves in the mus cles of the heart, and they regulate its bating, although the speed or rate of the beating is not of their choosing. If they were not held in check they would set a rate about double that which is actually maintained. The heart is supplied from the brain with two pairs of regulating nerves. One pair, the cardio-motor uerves, actonly to spur up the heart to quicker action. They are usually inactive, waiting the occasion for applying the spur. The other pair, the cardio-inhibitory nerves, are alwvays in action. It has been said that the heart runs in a pair of tightly-held reins, and the simile is true, for these nerves check the speed. Fear; wairry, disorder of the stomach or nervous system cause these cardio-inhibitory nerves to re lax; th...
NEW YEAR'S DAY OUTINGS. LAKE MERAN SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 January 1914
NEW YEAR'S DAY OUTINGS. LAKE MERAN SPORTS. Lake Meran is an ideal spot for a holi- day and as usual the surrounding cenutres of Kerang, Boort and Quambatook fur- nished their quota of pleasure seekers to make up the record attendance at tlhe New Year's day gathering. A picnic unrder a shady tree on the banks of such a beautiful lake was the main attraction, but for those who were that way inclined a good sport programme was provided. A. J. Ruff of Benudigo won the double in the footracing events in line style. HI. Wood won the 100 yards swimming event after anu exciting contest. His brothers annexed the 75 and 50 yard events. The diving for a saucer was another keen compeition anrd was won hy J \Whitelaw. who also won the long distance dive. There were big entries for moest of the other athletic events and no less than five persons guessed the weight of the sheep. Considerable inter est was taken in the Scottish events which were won by the Misses Nanucar ro.v and Gillies. MIr T. Ho...
