ECZEMA. Mrs. ELIZABETH ROBINS, of 256 Gouger Street, Adelaide, S.A., writes the story of her terrible suffer ings, 24/12/12. Eight years she was a martyr to the agony of Eczema, until she received relief from the almost ceaseless pain of this awful affliction through the use of The voluntary offering of this remark able letter by Mrs. Robins is evidence itself of her gratitude, and it is also proof that in cases where the blood is impure and skin disease is in tensified by this condition, the blood purifying powers of Clements Tonic are rapidly asserted. CLEMENTS TONIC LTD.,. 6 "Your medicine has been a great blessing to me. I suffered with Eczema for eight years ; my legs were swollen to an awful size and covered with watery blisters that would keep on breaking. All that time I was con fined to my home, never being out except when taken to the hospital. They declined to take me in and pro nounced me incurable. Your medicine was recommended to me by Nurse_ Grace, who said it was a s...
FOOTBALL. SEASON COMMENCES TO-DAY. PLAYERS READY FOR HARD BATTLES. LOCAL GROUND REQUIRES ATTENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 2 May 1914
FOOTBAL L. SEASON COMMENCES TO-DAY. -PLAYERS READY FOR HARD - BATTLES. LOCAL GROUND REQUIRES ATTENTION. The season of football commences :to-day. -Our Saturday afternoons will once again be astir.' The cheering and excitement will again .pierce the air. Competing clubs have been working quietly and are in battle array for the district pre miership. One very important matter has been overlooked-the erection of proper goal and behind posts. ff local teams are confident of award ing right decisions with the ' sticks' at-present at each end of the oval it will be a wonderful achievement. Season after season and nothing is done in this respect. This is not -a matter for the delegates, but for those who use the ground. :For a very small cost, cannot something be done to improve matters. Al though it might be as fair for one team as the other, I am inclined to think our footballers are worthy .of proper goal posts, if nothing else. '" he present state of affairs is what one might expect to...

Sunday Corner. The Life That Wins. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 2 May 1914
:Sunday - ConerP. : :' The Life That Wins. , :: e he We.can win others to Christ by -.being Christ to them, by showing them Christ in ourselves, by living so that they may be attracted to Christ, and may learn to admire and to love Him by what they see of Him in us. One of the most effec tive ways of winning souls is through beautiful, gentle, Christ like living. Eloquence of persua sion in a preacher is powerful with sinners only in so far as the -preacher's life is consistent. Preach ing without love in the' life is only empty clatter. But where deep, true love, the love of Christ, is, the plainest- humblest words be come eloquent and mighty. -
SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. ITS TERRORS : ITS DELIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 2 May 1914
SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. - +--~ ----- ITS TERRORS : ITS DELIGHTS. Except for journeys round the fringe of South America, travelling there it a desperate business. No where else surely in the world are fevers so malignant, forests and rivers so vast and uninhabited, and insects and snakes so murderous. More than one person has started up the Amazon, meaning to reach Peru and travel to Lima via one of the Amazon tributaries, and then by an unfinished railway which he strikes some few hundred miles out side Lima; but has been turned back at Para, at -the very mouth of the river, by a murderous onslaught of mosquitoes, wasps, and bees of in credible size, and chigoes which per sisted in laying eggs in the skin of his toes. A French traveller, who started from Guayaquil, crossed the Andes of Eouador to the Amazon,. and then descended the river, could not make up his mind which scenery was gran der and which horrors were worse, those of the mountains or the river. The well-known ships of th...

ONIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 2 May 1914
ONIONS. Winter onion crops are best sown during the last week in April or early in May. Tripoli onions is most gen erally sown, superior varieties of which are Golden and Giant Rocca, whilst Ailsa Craig is excellent and produces very large bulbs. All Tri poli onions are, however, soft, mild, and keep indifferently when harvest ed, hence of recent years many grow ers have sown in lieu good forms of Spanish onions, and proven that they also stand the winter and come in for transplanting for early bulb ing, being usually transplanted dur ing mild weather in the month of October. The seed is best sown in very shallow drills eight inches apart, trodden into the drill when sown, and slightly covered with fine soil; should the ground be very dry, it will be desirable to give the seed when sown a good watering, because prompt germination is of importance. Present sowings should be thicker t4an is desirable in connection with spring sowings, having in view the contingencies of very severe we...
THE DAIRY. FEEDING GOOD and BAD MILKERS [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 2 May 1914
THE DAIRY. ---+ - FEEDING GOOD and BAD MILKERS A cow requires food whether she is milking or not. The amount of food necessary to maintain a dry cow in fair condition, so that she will nei ther lose nor gain in weight, repre sents what is called her "mainten ance requirement." The maintenance requirement of healthy cows of simi lar weight does not vary much. If a cow is milking, however, she must consume and digest food in excess of her maintenance requirenment. Other wise she will lose in weight. The food consumed by a cow yielding milk is thus utilised for two different pur poses. One part is required for main tenance, aod this may be set down I as working expenses. The other part is utilised to fill the milk pail-it is the raw material from which milk is produced. What is a good cow ? It is one which can digest and assimilate for milk production an amount of food which largely exceeds her mainten ance requirement. But cows vary widely in this respect. From the Uni veristy of Miss...
ELECTRICITY. Public Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 2 May 1914
ELECTRICITY. Public Meeting. A public meeting was held on Wednesday in reference to this important question. The meeting was fairly well attended. Mr S. Joy presided. The chairman referred to the length, of time the question of electricity had been before the council and the different futile efforts. The meeting, he explained, was to endorse the action of the council and to imbue a more gene ral interest in the matter the coun cil had taken in hand on behalf of ratepayers. He had no hesitation in stating that it was:most desirable the borough should have its own lighting' works, and there could be no question as to choice of light, as electricity had in every way proved its superiority over all other systems. Mr T. Jenner moved the first resolution as follows, which was seconded by Mr G. Edward: 'That this meeting of ratepayers of Queenscliff endorse the action of the Borough Council in taking necessary steps for the 'installa tion of electricity for the borough, and that the expres...
KINDNESS PAYS. THE ADVANTAGE OF TREATING COWS HUMANELY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 2 May 1914
KINDNESS PAYS. THE ADVANTAGE' OF TREATING COWS HUMANELY. A writer says of the cow that "she is a mother once a year and, like all mothers, she requires especial care at the time of parturition." It seems as if the writer had dis missed this question of motherhood in the cow too quickly, limiting it, as 'he did, totthe time of parturitioun. The function of motherhood extends for months, as long as the cow is giving milk, and it is a wise, far seeing policy that discerns the scope and bearing of this continuing finc tion, and so ministers to the cow as to conduce to the greatest profit of the owner. There are a great many stupid, half-blind dotish men keepin: cows. A wise old farmer, speaking of a certain man in his employ, once said : "I don't know what it is about the inan, but he certainly can coax more milk out of the cows he has in charge than any man I ever saw. He is very quiet and gentle with the cows. He is all the time petting them, and looking:after their comfort. I 'have s...
THE FARM AND DAIRY. CHEDDAR CHEESE FROM PASTEURISED MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 2 May 1914
THE FARM AND DAIRY. - +----- CHEDDAR CHEESE FROM PAS TEURISED MIIK. The presence of inferior cheddar cheese on the nmrket, and the lack i. of uniformity which characterises the product of the present average cheese factory, is due primarily to the vari able quality of the milk supply from different farms. In an attrmpt to produce cheese of uniform 'quality from mills of variable acidity which is often contaminated with undesirable bacteria, cheesemakers use methods which vary from day to day, ca.re fully watching each vat at every stage of its manufacture and modify ing the process to meet the condi tions. Even then the quality and also the yield of cheese varies from day to day. In an endeavour to devise a pro cess for treating milk daily at. the factory to bring it into practically a uniform condition for cheesemaking purposes, Professor Samminis, of the Dairy Department, h~s developed a process whereby the milk is- pasteuri sed, and then brought. to uniform acidity by the additio...

THE FARM. FIXING UP RUN-OUT PASTURES. (E. L. Vincent, in the "Pacific Daily Review.") [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 May 1914
THE FARM. - ----4- FIXING UP RUN-OUT PASTURES. (E. L. Vincent, in the "Pacific Daily Review.") If the dairy farmers of this coun try were to be told that they might be making from one-third to one-. half more money out of their busi-: ness every year of their lives than they are now, they would jump to find out how it might be- done. I am going to make that state ment and then prove it. The pastures of this country to-day if in good condition would support at least one-third more cows than they do at present, and in mnany in stances the difference might safely be placed at one half more. This is, I am aware, a startling assertion. To think that we are going on year after year, keeping not more than half or two-thirds the stock we might and ought, is a most surprising thing. It does not speak very well for our ability as dairymen. The fact of it is, we have not paid much attention to our pastures any way. After we have decided what land we will give to' this purpose we fence. it off:...

"'The way of a -man with a maid" is always a thing,worth noting; also the various methods of courtship which prevail in different parts of the world.
