MENACE TO CHILD LIFE. If neglected the ordinary light cold will become severe, and a well established, ripe cold is to the germ of diphtheria what honey is to the bee. The greatest menace to child life is a neglected cold. Whether the cold be slight or severe the very best treatment that can be adopted is to give Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. A cold never results in diphtheria when Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is given. Sold by W. Grant Morton, Bac chus Marsh, and A. Comben & Co. Werribee. Don't stop spraying your fruit trees. It is easier to keep up than catch up. It takes two years for trees to bear after the foliage is de stroyed. Remember, too, that dor mant spraying is important. Sprayed fruit is good fruit, and good fruit always brings a good price in any season.

RED CROSS NEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 22 May 1915

RED CROSS NEEDS. SThe following .is an extract of an appeal by Lady Helen Munro Fer guson:-T-he nuinber and urgency of the many appeals now before the country tend to obscure the growing needs of the Red Cross Society. I, therefore, venture again to remind the public that, ii view of the heavy casualties, both in the Dardanelles and in'the North of France, contin uous assistance will be required for the hospitals and other agencies which relieve and succour the woun ded. The .ability of the Red Cro~s So ciety to meet all.these calls will de pend on the amount of support it receives from the public. We, all sympathise deeply with the suffering nations who have been so cruelly victimised by the war, but we have to remember that the greatest service we can render them is to rid them of the enemy, and the way to do this is by concentrating all our efforts on our own armies, and seek ing to make them as strong and efficient as possible.

FEED FOR HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 22 May 1915

FEED FOR HORSES. Experimnis have been conducted recently by the Director of Agricul ture (Dr. Cameron) with respect' to the feeding of horses, and the: re sults made available. Dr. Cameron desired to ascertain the value of feeding with a mixed diet of lu cerne and oaten chaff, and wheaten chaff alone. Forty horses were selec ted at the Werribee Research Farm for the test. Dr. Cameron stated that it was found that the animals gave the same results in condition and work on 6½lb. less of the mixed food than the wheaten chaff diet. He expressed the opinion that the result demonstrated beyond doubt the value of the mixed lucerne and oaten chaff food, as compared with the ordinary wheaten chaff. The prejudice of farmers against the mixed diet was disposed of once and for all. Dr. Cameron expects that in future the mixed food, which is from £1 to £2 a toil cheaper than wheaten chaff, would be greatly used in the country districts.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 22 May 1915

T?HE war Will profoundly affect all. theologies. Attempts will be made to bluff the fact. Positivism or Rationalism, plus British institu tions, will rule mankind. That will be a greater change than mere territorialism. It has long been needed. And Lloyd George wilk be its chief apostle. It is an aston ishing fact that Australians and New Zealanders should have had their first battle on Turkish terri tory in furtherance of this stupend ous change. Great is the power of evolution. ( WEATHER prospects are improving, because there has been enough rain for surface requirements, but the rivers are still low or extinct. They are only storm water channels at the best of times. We have had splendid rain sinc~ Thursday of last week. All the farmuers are now smiling. In our. last issue we reported 56 points, since then we Jlave had 74 points more, making a total of 130 points. The ground does not show that we have had that amount as Sunday and Monday were windy, which had a drying effect. The...

FOOTBALL. (By Eye Witness.) [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 22 May 1915

FOOTBALL. (By Eye Witness.) The season opened last Saturday, in real football weather. The rain of the morning made the ground very heavy_ and slippery. Bacchus Marsh elected; A. N. McEachern their Captain, and J. C. Densley as Vice-Captain, before starting [their match against Mad dingley in the Park. The game was without the usual amount of interest, owing to Bac chus' Marsh being without several of their best players-Harry Densley and Jno. Wittick now playing for Essendon Association, and Alf. Fair bank has an injured knee, but may play later on. Maddingley played a lot of jun iors, who showed out well, and will make good players if kept at the game Maddingley won the toss, .and kicked towards the grandstand end, taking advantage of the strong wind, but were unable to break through their opponents' back lines, and only scored 1 goal 1 behind, while the Marsh scored 3 goals 4 behinds. The second quarter opened with some up and down play. Bacchus Marsh failed to take full advantage...
