Clunes Guardian & Gazette THE NOBLEST MOTIVE IS THE PUBLICGOOD FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914
THE NOBLEST MOTIVE IS THE PUULIC GOOD FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1914. The death occurred not unexpectedly on Wednesday morning of Mr James Troup, the well-known farmer and landowner of Coghill's Creek. Mr Troup, who was 80 years of age, had been in failing health for some little time, and some days ago the members of his family wERE told by his medical adviser to anticipate the worst. The deceased, who was born in Baliater, Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1833, came to Australia at the age of 19 years, and for ever 50 years he was a resident of the Ballarat district. - In the 'sixties he took up land at Dowling Forest, having acquired a block on the sub division of the estate owned by the late Sir William Clarke. Sub sequently Mr Troup went to Pine Grove, Coghill's Creek, and he lived there to the end. Mr Troup married the daughter of the late Mr McIntosh, of Mount Bloward, soon after he settled at Coghill's Creek, He was highly respected throughout the district, and for many years was a valued m...
INFLUENZA VARIETY OF NAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
INFLUENZA VARIETY. OF NAMES. Nobody Ilkcs influonza. It has not ft; friend in the world, and every country tries to, make out that the wretched thing is'a native of some other country. In Russia it is called Siberian fevor, and in Siberia Chinese fever. In France it has been called Spanish catarrh, and Spain throws it back as Russian fever. Dr. Arthur F. Hopkirk gives some interesting lists of the names It has been called in a book on "Influenza." The term influonza came to be gener ally applied In England to the disease which was successively known as' "the new acquayntance," "the gentle cor rection," "the new delight,", and "the knoclc-me-down fever"" by a mistake. Eighteenth century Italian wrltors, says Dr. Hopkirk, 'b'poke of "una in fluenza dl froddo" (influence of cold), and English physicians, mistaking tho word influenza for the name of tho disease Itself, used it. The same term is also used in Ger many,'where a-host of dialect names still prevail, such as lightning catarrh...
DEER FOREST PERIL TO COUNTRYSIDE [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
DEER FOREST PERIL TO COUNTRYSIDE One of tho loveliest stretches of English scenery within range of: Lon don Is being robbod of both its beauty and use with such speod and certainty that local feeling is coming to a pitch of high irritation and private^, pro tests are being made (writes the spe cial correspondent of "Tho : Daily Mail"). The question is much moro than local. By the deliberate choice of a new landlord (1) Somo land which produc'edfood, both corn and milk, is put out o£ cul tivation, is from a national pofnt of view made barren. (2) A famous beauty spot is de prived of Its native charm and with drawn from tho use of tho neighbors and a wider public who delighted to walk there. Something has been already heard of tho destruction of farms and farm buildings and of the making of a deer forest across the wild and rich stretch of country below Hindhead and/, be tween Haslemere and Witley, on the estate recently bought by Lord Flrrle, one of the ilrst Peers created by 'the pr...
CHAPTER XI. A Link With the Past. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
CHAPTER XI. A Link With the Past. Bracing herself with the reflection that she waB acting for justice, truth and duty, Gwendolen recovered her equanimity as she strolled along a Bel gravian street without meeting a po liceman or indeed anyone but the post man and a couple of boys, too much interested in comparing notes as to their illtreatment 'by their respective masters to notice her. As she turned the corner a poor-looking four-wheeler, driven by a melancholy-looking old man came along. She hailed him, and, saying a few words (more lies) as to masquerading at a garden party, promised him a double fare if he would take her to Waterloo Station in time for a certain train she had looked out during that long, detestable night. In the cab, she recovered her self possession to a certain extent, and when she saw a friendly-looking por ter and said to him, "I am going ta a garden party,, find me a compartment alone, if you can," her splendid Un secured tier loneliness for her jour ney. ....
The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER X. A New Mission. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
The Great Montamor V? Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "Tho Knavo of Hearte, CHAPTER X. A New Mission. Ronald Halldaro had seen Gwendo len strolling towards tlie river, across the illuminated lawns of Lady Emil ia's grounds, the man he believed to be Lord Montamor, ills suM>lantcr,"ttt her side. It was Impossible, although he honestly 'believed Charles Daunce to have been merely the Australia.! alias of his long-lost cousin Robert, not to ibe on tenterhooks as to Gwen dolen's opinion after she had had a private interview with the claimant. He hardlv knew himself whether, un derlying his, as he considered it, un alterable opinion, that the bearded stranger was the real man and no other, there was not a lurlcing hope to be convinced of the contrary by a' succession of undeniable facts, such as Gwendolen's tubBoluto repudiation of the supposed Robert. So when, as he was hovering about the tents, the pair must-pass to return to the en closed lawn where the dancers were disportin...
DIGESTION AND THE COMPLEXION. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
DIGESTION AND THE COM* PLEXION. The digestion has a very great deal( indeed, to do with beauty of com plexion, or the' reverse; But the com plexion and the eyes deteriorate from injud.cious' eating, even in cases where no dyspepsia may be complain ed of. If the bload be in the slightest degree overheated, or ever so little cfiarged with bile from inactivity ot the liver, the skin coracs to grief, and it is the skin of the face that suffers first. The best cosmetic ever invented could not'cure this state of matterH till the blood gets right again. Na ture will effect a cure, however, if the diet be lowered, and only cooling food be partaken of. When one, in sum mer, suffers from thirst to'a consider able degree, it is a sign that mora than the system requires has been eaten. If then large quantities oI fluid be swallowed, matters are ren dered far worse, perspiration is in« duced, and once again the complexion suffers. No better drink can be par taken of for health's sake than the ju...
REMARKABLE RECORD [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
REMARKABLE BECORD . The diamond Jubilee of tho Rov. Samuel Harding, of tho Portman street United Free Church Mission Halli Glas gow, has Just been celebrated (says "The Westminster Gazette.") Mr Harding, In acknowledging tho gift of a purse of sovereigns. Incidentally re marked that he had never been laid aside for a single day with illness, had never Jjad a doctor attend him, had never ' partaken of mediclno of any kind, and never even had tho toothache. It is melancholy to think that this, ?which ought to be tho normal state of things, is now becoming so rare that when it happens to exist, tho mere casual mention of It is regarded as worthy of note. So happy a condition is certainly enviable.
PEOPLING VICTORIA. CLOSER SETTLEMENT TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
PEOPLING VICTORIA. CLOSER SETTLEMENT TROUBLES. The question of closer settle ment has during the last fewdavs excited the profoundest interest not only in Parliament, but throughout Victoria. The damning report of the com mittee appointed to inquire into the policy of the Closer Settle ment Board has convinced all that there is drastic need for change. In any case the interests at stake are very large; the Closer Settlement Board has spent on the average .£500,000 per annum on the purohase of land, and also advances an average of .£200,000 a year to settlers. Thus the board oontrols a buBinaos which taxes the electors to the extent of £700,000 a year. The curious feature of the busi ness is that the present chairman of the board declared frankly that he was not master of the position, and added the startling remark, "an apple cart down the street could not be run on the lines on wbioh Victoria's closer settle ment scheme waB conducted." To this statement Mr Mckenzie, former Minister...
THE COLD BATH [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
THE COLD BATH/ If you do not feel warm after a cold bath you had better not take_ it, for it is doing you no good. We do not take cold baths for the sake of cleanli ness; cold water may wash oS the superficial dirt, but it does not ex tractrthe dirt from the pores. We plunge into cold water solely for its invigorating effect, anl unless we get that invigorating effect from it we had better- seek the invigoration in some other way. It is a mistake to get in to a bath by standing in the cold water and hesitating before taking the plunge, for this drives the blood up toward the head, and is likely to cause congestion of the blood vessels in the throat. The best way is to stand in an empty bath tub and turn on the shower, so that the cold water will strike the . head and shoulders first. If there, be no shower bath, souse the head and neck first with a sponge, or duck the head under wa ter, then get in and plunge the whole | body under a6 quickly as possible. Another mistake is to stay ...
WOMEN FOR LAND WORK OF CO-OPERATION [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
WOMEN FOR LAND WORK OP CO-OPERATION ViscountesB Falmouth presided at the annual meeting of the Women's Agricultural and Horticultural Inter national Union hold yesterday after noon (December 4, Bays "Tho Dally News") by permission of the Earl and Countess of Meath at 83, Lancaster gate. In the course of an address Lady Falmouth observed that educated wo men with a knowledge of scientific ag riculture and horticulture could do apart from their own work a great deal of work in the country-side in educating their poorer neighbors. She thought also that women were splendid pioneers in the work of agricultural co-operation, which was going to be a great- thing in the future. They would have to realise that without co operation the small holder could not make his small holding pay. Speaking on the report, the hon. secretary said they had recently re ceived a communication from an em ployer, who said he needed a help to look after his books when in tho gar den. "She must not bo very young,...

SOMETHING IN THE EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
SOMETHING IN THE EYE. Whilst takingr outdoor exercise it frequently happens that some foreign substance lodges in the eye, thus caus ing considerable pain. There are I simple measures that can be used to remove the irritating: lodgment. Above all, keep soiled fingers and soiled I handkerchiefs away from the eye, for to rub it with either may inflame it still further. A vigorous blowing of tne nose sometimes removes the sub stance. Then, closing the lid, and rolling the eyeball round two or three times will often dislodge the speck. The upper lid drawn over the under lid will sometimes give relief. If th* eye be kept closed for a short time! any foreign substance. is likely to work to the edge of the lid, and is then easily removed. Copious bathing is a simple remedy often effectual; of course, if these fail professional as sistance should be sought. Milk and water is a soothing lotion for the eyes,;
ENGLAND'S WINTER FLOWERS IN THE OPEN [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
| i ENGLAND'S WINTER FLOWERS IN THE OPEN Who said wintor? The flattest contradiction ever of fered to the December almanac, at any rate for 165 years, la given In the bas ket of rosea sent by a reader in Ryde, Isle of Wight (sayB "The Dally Mall." on December 21). Horace Walpole boasted of a bloasom on his nectarine tree on December 2G, 1748; but hiB re cords all go by the board. We can overwhelm him with bouquets, and give him also fruit for his flowers. A Hallsham (Sussex) garden carries to-day simultaneously roses, mistletoe and apple blossom, as strangely assor ted a trio of blossoms as ever gazed at one another out of doors across an English garden. Decorations for one Christmas table, it is already arranged, are to consist of one huge bowl of real roses and one of "Christmas roses," or hellebore, with a vase of sprays of ripe raspberries in the middle. The roses of the Islo of Wight lead th way. There are atili over sixty sorts of flowers out in a Ryde garden. Roses are out no...

KEEP BABY'S HEAD COOL! [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
KEEP BABY'S HEAD COOL! .From birtfi the head should be habitually uncovered night and day indoors, and merely protected by some light, pervious cap or hat in the open a.r; as, if perspiration of the scalp be. induced, cold in the head, sneez ing", cough, etc., are not unlikely to follow. Moreover, the hair may bo injured in its future growth and s.rength. All woollen, silk or other lining should be discarded, there being great tendency' in childhood to irrita tion or congestion of the brain, which m'smanagement, especially during and sometimes after teething, may fan into inflammation; and as in health children's heads are warmer than at a more advanced age while the bodily warmth is lower, it is wrong to increase the heat by unnecessary covering.
LODDON DEEP LEADS LTD. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
LODDON PEEP LEADS LTD. The Loddon Deep Leads Co. (Cnralulup), like the early Christians, has passed through much tribulation, but there is good hopo now of its developing into a profitable concern. It has an bxcellent board, with Mr Frank D. Orosthwnite at its head, and lie is well supported by his colleagues, and the general policy has their unanimous approval. This has not always been the caBO with Loddon Deep Leads, and, perhaps tlio company's past misfortunes aro in part traceable to this lack of unity, and also to a certain absence of informa tion, which the slnreholilers expected, and certainly did not always get. They now know everything, and, amongst other things, that from 118G square fathoms of wash raised, the yield was 1135 oz, which is just under l'oz per fathom. The gold is there, and, if the company gets into full swiug wit]) an up-to-date plant, the board have no doubt that profits will result. A large area of wash has been opened up, and will be ready for extraction...
HEALTH IN THE HOME. KEEP CLEAN NAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
HEALTH IN THE HOME. 9 KEEP CLEAN NAILS. Some time ago a bacteriological in stitute conducted some experiments on dirt taken from finger nails. The process was to put in "cultivating mixtures," such as are used for sup plying germs with food on which to develop. The crop that grew from the germs in the dirt was a varied one, including 36 kinds of microcci, 18 of bacilli, and many others. That a wound, or cut, or even a scratch should never be touched with dirty nails is an obvious inference. In some paits of the country a scratch from a nail is held to be poisonous. It is not the nail, but the dirt, that gives the ' poison."
STOMACH TROUBLES DUE TO ACIDITY. SO SAYS EMINENT SPECIALIST. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 February 1914
STOMACH TROUBLES DUE TO ACIDITY. SO BAYS EMINENT SPECIALIST. ] So-called stomach troubles, such as ! j indigestion, wind, stomach-achu and | inability to retain food, instead of j indicating that the stomach is out of j order, are in nine cases out of ten simply evidence that fermentation is j talcing place in the food contents of | the stomach, causing the formation of gas and acids. Wind distends the stomach, and causes that full, oppres I sivo feeling sometimes known as I heartburn, while the acid irritates and | inflames the J delicate lining of the ' I stomach. The stomach, however, is not at fault. The trouble lies entirely in the fermenting food. Such fermen tation is unnatural, and acid formation is not only unnatural, but may involve , the most serious consequences if not prevented. To prevent or stop, fer-' mentation of the food contents of tho stomach and to neutralise the acid, and render it blaud and harmless, half a teaspoonful of bisurated mag nesia, probably the best...
