No Title [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
ONE of the healthiest signs of the present day is the awakening of the man on the land, the farmer and prodncer, to the imminent dangers that begin to confront him owing to the vindictive recklessness of the Socialist extremists. Time was, not so long ago, when "poor old Hay " seed," contemptuously referred to by the city Labor men, was regarded as a mere negligible quantity in the professional agitator's and strike fomenter's plan. He was topp busy to cast a vote, and too apathetic to defend himself and his interests, against those who saddled him with the burden of taxation arising from their fanciful and costly schemes. He was usually regarded as a man of limited intelligence, ready to accept any plausible hustings' plea a person to whom promises might be made for vote-catching purposes, without the least intention of ever reducing them to performance. His class was unorganised; and, beyond the customary growl at the expan sion of taxation, he was never seriously regarded as a de...

THE USE OF SALT FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
THE USE OF SALT FOR FIGS. The old fdea was that to give salt to pigs was a very great mistake, and that it actually poisoned them by c:aus hng inflammation of the stomach, fol -owed by death. There is no doubt that this sometimes did actually hap pIen, but we have got to know a little more about matters nowadays, tand cases of so-called poisoning were simp ily those in which too much salt or sa Uine bodies had been given. It !s she custom, for instance, to give pigs ell the household swill, and on a large ncale to get the refuse from ihotels and various other institutions for pig-feed sng, All this stui has uiubtles il ready had. salt added, and if a. litdle more salt has been put in it can oe seen that this swill which is thus twice salted, becomes poisonous, and might therefore be set down by some people to be duo to the small quantity of salt last added. But in the ordin ary cases no such contingency arises, rind such foods as maize, middlings, and those which are usually fed to ...

TEMPERANCE NOTES. (Contributed by Temperance Council.) [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 5 January 1914
TEMPERANCE NOTES. eContributed by Temperance Council. The American athletes who did so remarkably well at the Olympic games, at Stockholm, are practically all total abstainers, and they were trained on a ,regimen that most rigidly ekxcluded both tobacco and all intoxicants. Professor Adam, of M'Gill E ni}er sity, when addressing the Canadian Medical Association, recently, warned the doctors not to hide from their patients and the public the scienti fically assured fact that drink and impurity would be visited on men's offspring to the third and fourth generation. At a temperance gathering held at Hobart recently, the State Treasurer, the Hon. H. J. Payne, said that if the Australian people prohibited the eale of liquor altogether, the Trea sury would still be much better off. Those who studied the question were convinced that from an economic standpoint the liquor trade was wasteful in the highest degree. Dr. Mary Scharlieb, of London, states that researches show that 55 per cent. o...
