FAINTING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 February 1914

FAINTING. There are a great many causes of fainting, but the main basis of it is a general. feebleness of tlio blood. In some cases there is a constitutional tendency to it, and curiously enough, this is frequently dono away with by a familiarity with .scenes that other times would produce the most violent faintness. Young medical students, just beginning their career, have been known to be overcome by the scenes of the dissecting-room, who in aftor life became very famous, and so to speak, callous surgeons. Many young sol diers, who in very many eases, had hardly left their mother's apron strings when they enlisted, and who had faint ing lits at sight even of an animal being tortured, have early learned to view all the horrors of a disastrous battle-field without the ordinary compunotions of the faint-hearted. Other causes of the tendency to faint ness are indigestion, and an over-ween ing sympathy, and a case, of fainting itself, when ocouring among the very sympathetic, will ofte...

AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 February 1914

AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. An American export says of Agri culture in the United States:-"There is good authority for the assertion that the farmer could take from the aamo area of ground in four years grain crops as much as seven years now give him. leaving the products of the other threo yearn when the land rewted from grain, as a clear profit duo to hotter methods. Ho can do Jar more than that by joining livo-fltock raising with grain raising. Nature has provided cattle to go with the land. . . What our people have to do is to cover less ground, cultivate smaller farms so a& to make the most of them, instead of getting a scant and uncertain yield from several hundred ocres."

LATE SUPPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 February 1914

LATE SUPPERS. Late suppers oro a common caufltuof insomnia, especially that form of it in which people fall into a heavy sloop, only to wake with n sf.art an hour or so later. Digestion comes almost to a dead stop during sleep, so that suf ficient time should bo allowed for tho last meal to be disposed of beforo tho hour of retiring. This interval should be, two hours at least, which often means that half past eight is, as a rufe, late enough for tho evening meal. In any ease, tho food which is taken then ought to be'of light nature, and not include pork, cold meat, or any other article, of diet which is. slow of digestion..

HARDIER INSECT PESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 25 February 1914

HARDIER INSECT PESTS. , Something of a sensation has been produced among Galifornian fruitgrow ers by the suggestion of tho Principal of. Entomology of tlio Washington State College, that possibly under continued spraying with insecticides, hardier strains of insect pests aro being pro duced, which are better able to with stand the effects of the? poisons. "In other words," said Professor Molandor, in his address, "it is possible, from a biological standpoint, that we are breeding the resistant insects. If there is suoli a thing as this, it is a big, big thing in the fruit world. A few years ago, wo were cocksure that sulphur-limo would kill red spider eggs, would kill eggs of the green aphis, and yet I have examined I don't know how many millions of red-spider eggs this year, and failed to find them dead after being sprayed with sulphur lime. The Siuno can bo said of the green aphis, in u good many localities. Whether it is a biological fact that soalo and other insects are becomng...

THE PIG A GRAZING ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 4 March 1914

THE PIG A GRAZING ANIMAL. The too closely penning of pigs (ex cept while topping up) is a mistake. In a state of nature tho pig is a grazing animal. For breeding ami growing pigs, a grass outrun is profitable. Admitting that pigs must be fed differently, from other stook. when housed, yet grass is still a natural food to them, even as it is to horses/ and cows. Pigs graze as close to the grtind as sheep. It is sometimes stated) that pasture deterior ates under cows, but whether this be so or not, pigs benefit pasturage, and rapidly improve poor quality grass. Even the very youngest pigs running with tho mother will graze a little, but should be given some other food a.s well. Shade and' shelter are neces sary. Sunburn is- to be guarded against. Even with larger pigs, a. sudden change from dull to sunny ! weather during the hotter portion of (he year means sunburn. When grass is plentiful, store pigs of all ages oan he run on it cheaply, and need but very little trough food. With reg...

Sundry Pars. INDISCRIMINATE SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 4 March 1914

Sundry Pars. INDISCRIMINATE SHOOTING. At the Hampdenshire Council meet ing on Monday, Cr Oman drew atten tion to the fact that the Plains were being visited by sportsmen (?) who made a practice of firing at random at anything and everything. People tra velled through the district in motor cars, he said, firing at milestones, tele graph poles and anything else in the nature of a target, killed domestic and protected birds, and endangered human life with their indiscriminate use of firearms. One party in a motor car recently fired a charge into the Council's tanks on the Derrinallum j road. Unfortunately no one was ! near enough to get the car's number. There was a general feeling of alarm owing to the reckless use of pea rifles i and long-range firearms. Some even j seemed to be trying to shoot quail with rifles, and fired through plantations, not knowing who might be on the other side. One of his own children was riding along a main road when four shots were fired through a plantati...
