Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 19 March 1914

Have you suspected your kidneys as the cause of your trouble? Does the back, head or limbs ache ? Is there rheumatism, weak heart, or dropsy? Is there too great or too little flow of the rine, with gravel or sediment? Do you feel always tired, done up, ner vous? It is the kidneys' fault—they should filter the blood—take out its impurities. If then, you would " get well" you must make the kidneys well. Dean's Backache Kidney Pills are for the kidneys and bladders only. "Can I stay well !" The best answer to this question is given here. Urs. A. March, McQuavie Street, Glen Innes, says:—"A member of my family suffered with kidney trouble. The symptoms were backache headaches, a tired-out feeling, and disordered secretions. Wo were al way using one remedy or another, but nothing did the slightes t good. I saw Doan's Backache Kidney Pills ad vertised, and procured some.

An Important Discovery. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 19 March 1914

An Important Discovery. During the last twenty years or so our-ideas about manuring land have become revolutionised, and we seem to be on the edge of discoveries which may be of vast importance and may very much influence our treatment of the land for growing crops. More than thirty years ago it was found out that certain or ganisms in the soil produced nitric acid from decaying matter ; less than thirty years ago the bacter oids _^which live in .the nodules on the roof? . f i.~ and clover and serve .aese plants with nitrogenous compounds wore discovered ; later on the existence of countless 'mil lions of all sorts of microbes in tlie Soil whoso function it was to de compose mineral and vegetable ma terial for the use of the crops was found out, and now the latest dis covery conies . from Rothamsted, where all our knowledge of manures originated, that there are certain other organisms in the soil of the nature of algae which live on these n.-eful microbes and so check tlicir work ; ...

FOR TREE PLANTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 19 March 1914

FOR' TIlI'.K PLANTING. The use of explosives for prepar ing the ground for tree planting was demonstrated. A hole about 3ft. deep was made, and a charge of 8oz. of cheddite inserted, ignition be ing effected by an ordinary fUBe. The explosion loosened the strong soil lying on chalk to a depth of 3ft. Gin., and to about the same extent in diameter. It is claimed •for the system that, besides a bettor rooting area for young trees. It has been proved thai, fruit trees planted in this -way have taken root more, quickly and made more rapid .growth than those pluntcd in the usual manner. The cost of the operation is from 4Jd. to Gd. a tree, and one man can prepare for sixteen trees an hour. Kxperiments carried out on these lines for loosening the soil have proved- very i-liective. Kour-ounca charges of gelignite were inserted in holes made with the crowbar 3ft. Gin. deep at intervals of loft. The explosion left little impression upon the surface, but the momentary ef fect .was to raise th...

Silt,—At the Police Court on Wed nesday last, in u case for being illeg ally on the premises on Sunday, the name of a third party (who had paid the penalty' of his indiscretion by being arrested and fined, and paying the lino) was freely used. J.t is the rule of our Courts to be satisfied when justice is expatiated, and to virtually drag up the name of a man who has complied with these conditions is like trying him over again, in fact it is worse, as it is emphasising the offence that has, already been condoned. Surely all the ends of evidence could he satisfied by alluding to the man as the third person. In all justice I think this should ho done. —Yours etc., JUSTICE.

How to Feed the Crops. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 19 March 1914

How to Feed the Crops. Plants require food just the same as you and I. They must have that food in the right proportions and a sufficient amount, and they are more exacting than human be ings. They require eight consti tuents, all furnished in abundance by nature, oxcept three, and wo must watch and see that our land is fertile in those three special ele ments. They are to the plants what meat, potatoes and bread are to us. They aro nitrogen, phos phorous and potash. Those things we must have, and we must have a sufficient amount of each one. Nitrogen fed at a profit.—Nitro gen is the first one. It takes 111-., lbs. to make 75 bushels of corn. Nature has givon us legumes such as lucerne, clover, cow pens, and soy beans. These "plants are equipped with bacteria upon the roots. They carry it down into the soil and deposit it there, and it makes the ground ricjier. Hence, if tho far mor will occasionally turn under a crop of pea hay or place clover in tho rotation, cutting tho first an...

Snake Experience, At1 the Dubbo .cemetery the other day, the grave-digger was sinking . grave, and when nearly finished he ' had an experience which he does not wish to have repeated. "While en gaged in excavating the hole, his little dog, which was frisking about on the surface, kept sending down small pieces o? earth which he took no notice of. S iddenly something a little heavier struck him in the hack, and straightening up, he was almost para liserl to observe a black snake about three feet long roll of his hack to his feet. The snake showed light, hut the gravcdigger was not having any, and,-, like Josh Billings, concluded that "tliair air hole belongs to that snaik," and he made an aerial exit quieker'n greased lightning. He dis, patched the snake from the top of the grave. While proceeding to Braidwood from Qoulburn on Friday, 0. Wilson's motor-car burst into llames, and in a few minutes was completely destroyed.

Fowl Breath MiSFORTUNfe FOR MAN OR WOMAN. The old saying that "Distance lends enchantment" was never moro aptly to the point than when applied to those people whose breath is laden with evil-smelling and offen sive odours. Many persons appear most attractive at a distance, hut produce a feeling of pity and disgust when ciose to, because of the condi tion of their breath. . For instance, it mnkes little difference how beauti ful a woman may he, or how charm ing her manner, if her breath is foul; her charm is gone, and she is at a disadvantage whenever she comes in contact with other people. Foul breath in woman arouses in man a feeling of repugnance and a desire to got out of the company of such a woman as quickly as possible; and oven, women will avoid her. It is, therefore, important for every wo man who -values her personal attrac tion to take such care of herself that this unpleasant and unnecessary com plaint is avoided or corrected.

KILLAKNEY. (From our Correspondent.) Fine weather has again returned and is much appreciated by all classes. There are some hundreds of acres of lucerne ready to he cut, and the corn crops require a deal of hardening. As to the roads, they were impassable during the wet weather, and " Old King Sol" is the only road maker this district will sec. A sad shooting accident occurred here on Wednesday. Three young boys named Driver, Dcneh, and Mugarry aged 7, 6, and 8 years re1 spectively, got hold of a pea riile and engaged in some target practice, and as Driver had hold of the rifle young Deneh got into the line of f'.re and received the charge in the region of the liver and shortly expired. The Farmers' Union here has de ' eided to support a straight out Country Farmers party candidate at the next State election; Mr. AY. J.
