Sees all Things Reversed [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 January 1914

Sees all Things Reversed A boy who sees everything u.pside down. writes from right to left, i'n Ver.d s all his letters and figures, and draw;: and copies any objects the. wrong way up,. has been discovered at Chester le Street, Durham. He is 5. years old, and his case presents many simdlarities-to that of an American boy reported recently. In'an interview with the boy's teanoh er, a pressman obtained an idea of the peculiar working of the bay's mind. Not only does he write upside dowp, the teacher said, but he also sees uip side down. For instance, if he has to write a small "h" the result is a"y" written backwards; that is to say, he commences to form the letter at the tail ;end and work backwards. . The same ;peration. takes place when he forms the letter "u'" or "m," the ef fect being that the letters are written "n" ;and "w" respectively. His mind acts in a similar topsy turvey manner whenr he is set to copy any figure or outline drawing. His reading, however, is not tiffected ...

THE FATIGUE POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 January 1914

THE FATIGUE POINT. Nothing is so beneficial to a'man or a woman as to relax every muscle of the body, to lie or at least to sit with closed eyes for a. short time every clay. Many people cannot sleep, many can only spare a quarter of an hour for this rest, but if these would make a point of .taking just what they can" they would soon find a marked difference in their health. A human being can work evei'y day up to the point of 'fa tigue without feeling any the worse, in fact it may be said that hundreds would feel infinitely better if they had to work to the fatigue point every day of their lives. They would 'not thlin complain of loss of appetite or inability to sleep. But these ill ef fects, if they arise from want of work, also attack those who habituially pass the fatigue point. To rest before just getting tired is one of the very best means to prevent a breakdown. If mental or physical strain is continued,. even a little too far for any consider able length of time, disastrous ...

RESCUED FROM THE CURSE OF GOD. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 January 1914

SESCUED FROM THE CURSE OF GOD. BY PASTOR RUSSI LL. Text: "There shall 'be no more curse,~'.. Rev. zzii., 3. We are emerging from a horrible night. mare of delusion. The shackles of super stition are breaking from our minds. -Our forefathers, under the threat that to doubt the creeds was to be damned, feared to think for themselves. Satan helped not only to make our creeds, but to manacle us to them by direful threats. Well may we praise God for the dawning light of the new day, which is bringing us spiritual blessings, even as it is showering upon us temporal advantages such as the world never before knew. Freedom to think transcends all physical liberties. Truly, "the liberty wherewith Christ makes free" is the great boon of God to man. In proportion as it has been received, there is joy; otherwise, there is discontent, groaning, pain. God's curse, as set forth by the creeds, consigns the whole world to eternal tor ture, except as any should be so fortunate as to hear of the Saviou...

GREEN MANURING AND FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 January 1914

GREEN MANURING AND FER TILISER. -. .',The system: of green _maniuring to furiish a supply of organic, matter, and to collect nitrogeh irom the air in the case of the green manuring crop being leguminous-can bh employed with decided. advantage on sandy soil, and also one medium soils; for fields to which it may not be convenient to ap ply farmyard manure. To get the best results from green manuring, it is necessary to supplement it by the application of fertilisers. On this subject a distinguished German pro fessor of Agriculture has, the following observations:-The necessity for the addition of nitrogen is dependent on d&eds; . not able to face the winter without a set of furs valued at £60 or £70 being added to half a dozen other sets. I have known a woman, whose husband was on the brink of bank ruptcy, paying .out a last available £10 note for a velvet coat.

Potato Spraying LIME-SULPHUR EXPERIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 January 1914

Potato: Spraying LIME-SULPHUR. EXPERIMENTS.. In a report giving the results of. te cent tests, the demonstration farm in New York State says it seems evident that lime-sulphur is not destined to take.the place of Bordeaux mixture as a spray for potatoes, in 'spite of the fact -that it is cheaper and no doubt very convenient to use. Under more favorable conditions, in which late blight occurred earlier in the season and to a greater extent, the treatment with lime-sulphur might have produced different results, blit at present is not promising. Tlie lime-sulphur proved harmless to the: potato foliage .as far as burning is concerned, but it proved to- have a distinct dwarfing effect quite similar to that noted in the previous season's ex periment. The lime-sulphur also lack ed the beneficial or stimulative effect derived from .the Bordeaux mixture, which preserved the foliage, prolonged the life of the plants, and thereby in creased' the yield even. in the partial absence of fungus dis...

Land Valuations. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 January 1914

Land Valuations. In the Assembly last Thursday, Mr Angus asked the Premier-1. " If he considered it necessary to have so many valuations of land, viz., the municipal valuation, the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission's valuation, and the land tax valuation ?" 2.-"'Why owners, after paying the land tax for three years, are subject to a- re vision of the charges by the land tax valuers?" Mr Watt (Premier) --" In reply to the first question, I may say that the Land Tax Act makes provision for the use of the land tax valuations by municipali ties and the public Departments, including the State Rivers and Wa ter Supply Commissioners. The Water Commission has, with the concurrence of the late Minister of Water Supply, prepared an amend ment of the Water Act, giving, " Interalia, " the Commission power to adopt the unimproved capital value of rateable properties as the basis for its water rates, and this value is to be obtained from the Land Tax Commissioner's valua tions.

The Cat and Disease Under normal. conditions the germs. of nearly all. epidemic anid local dis= eases thiive upon-the family, cat. Even where the oat is 'itself not subjeob to -the diseases, it easily spreads the con t.agion, and occasionally is guilty on both accounts. Thus, in thQ case of diptheria, the cat not only has the disease itself, but also carries it on the mucous membranes of fur. Influenza is spread broadcast by fur and feet, and Haowlett has-recently shown that as a distributor of plague, the cat vies in virulence with the rat. Ringworm nd tapeworm, says."Good Health" are spread in the same way, and pus germs find easy lodgment in the thick hair. from which the stroking hand quickly nveys them to the human body. The germs of typhoid and tuberculosis are similarly distributed, as well as the ,re subtle and less understood' germs .;f whooping-cough, measles, scarlet fever, 'and small-pox. This is more rapidly appreciated when we considcr how quiokly the cat is given as a...

Brown, of Durham-street, Auckland, N.Z., was* crippled with --flesh-eating ulcers for. eight months. Telling. how the limb. was made quite strong and sound by Zam-Buk's healing, Mr Brown says : " Through knocking my leg against the edge of a box, I one day burst. a varicose vein. A stream of blood gushed out, and it was some time before I could stop the outflow. Soon afterwards the wound became angry-looking and ulcerous, and mcaused great pain. " I laid up and rested the limb, but it was no use, for the bad place got worse and worse, and terribly inflamed. Then the treatment of a medical man was tried, but it failed to bring any improvement. For eight months I was in fearful torment, The inflammation spread, the ulcers got deeper and bigger, and the leg was swollen enormously. " I had often heard of Zam-Buk so at last I decided t...

New Use for Tomatoes [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 January 1914

New Use for Tomatoes It is now possible (says a Naples correspondent) to buy a pound of to matoes in a paper bag made from to mato skini and eat them by the light of a lamp burning tomato oil. Hitherto there has been much waste in the conversion of tomatoes into cat sup, paste and soup. The seeds and skins have been thrown away, but now, after much research in faotories at Naples and Parma,. the by-products are almost as valuable as the fruit -it self. " In this "new process, the. resid;ue 6'of seeds and _skins is dried in the sun. Then the seeds ar .crushed in a hy draulic press, when they yield a lim pid orange-yellow oil, which, despite ts strong odor of tomatoes, gives an dlorless, bright flame when burned in a lamp. By another prooess, the skins of to iatoes can be so treated as to make a ;ough quality of wrapping paper.
