The Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 20 February 1914

The Water Supply, For some time the town has been on half rations of water, one half the town getting it in the morning and the other half in the afternoon. Working horses are suffering because the troughs have been cut off to discourage the' free-grazing nuisance. On ,MQBday part o£ the town got v/ater. On Tuesday cn!y the lower-lying houses got any. On Wednesday there was none any where. With a confidence which long ago proved misplaced, resi dents went to the needless and unprofitable trouble of filling up wells on the advent of the water supply. Their plight, in com mon with those without tanks, is becoming serious. It is said that one good result of discontinuing the use of wells.was that typhoid became—or came—no more. The position is that the Garden Hut Creek, from which the supply is drawn, has ceased running. The little water in the reservoir is be low the outlet. The 4-inch main from the weir has been connected direct to the 5-inch main which comes into the town. The forme...

Right Way to Eat Pineapples. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 20 February 1914

Right Way to Eat Pine apples. 1'incnpplcs used to bo considered uuwholcsomo, hut in all probability this reputation was gained because they wore not eaten in tbo proper >vny or were not ripe enough. Most pcoplo eat pineapples the wrong way. They paro off the coarse, prickly outside skin and throw It away, not knowing that the ekin really contains the best part of the fruit. This outside Bkln contains it large proportion of tho alkaloid principle, " bromcUn," which Is the digestive ferment of the pineapple and which is somewhat similar in its medicinal effect to pepsin. The correct way to .eat a pine apple, to get the most good from it, is first .to pare off tho rough outsido : skin. Squeeze these par ings in a lemon squeezer nnd pour their, juice, sweetened or not, as preferred, . -over* the paved pineapple i when cut in slices.

It is frequently remarked that tho greatest development of tho twen tieth century iB to bo the reawaken ing of the great Asiatic peoples, and it is forecasted by pessimistic West erners that the millions of the East may, 100 years hence, be the domin-' ant influence in the world. But | those who tako this view are surely short-sighted. It is youth that wins and a little study must convince that' .100 years hence there should bo no ! more ambitious or more powerful j nations in tho world thnn those I which are now so rapidly building up' in the wide, new, fertile, and, as yet, almost empty regions of tho earth. Wo have seen in a single century what has been dono in tho United I States ; wo havje seen tho American pooplc increase in 100 years from1 some seven or eight million to near ly 100,000,000.

Two special trains con veyed residents direct to Port Melbourne, where they were joined by city friends and boarded tbe Hygeia for Queens cliff or Sorrento.

Di Gilio's band played selections, and there were itinerant mu sicians and various ganjes of "skill" wherewith to while away the time.
