A person who hao suffered a sovoro electrical shock and io unconscious, needs prompt attention, just ca a per aon noods it who has boon taken uncon ? ecioua from tho water. In fact tho method of first aid to a victim of elec trical shock is a groat deal liko the work of resuncitatioa of a nearly drowned jjorson.

IRRIGATED AND NON-IRRIGATED APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 March 1914
IRRIGATED AND NON-IRRI GATED APPLES. The following extract is taken from the "Journal of the Board of Agriculture," London, and should prove of considerable in terest to readers: " It is generally believed that irrigated fruits are inferior to non-irrigated fruits as regards taste' and power to resist the various agencies which affect decay, and in support ot this belief it in frequently stated that the former contain abnormally high percentages of water, and consequently low percentages of dry matter, and are therefore deficient in those compounds which determine the taste and body of the fruit. Although the quality of fruits may not be capable ot determination from analysis alone, it would appear that, in so far as taste depends upon the presence of certain compounds, analytical data would be of material service in the settlement of questions relating to quality. In the experiments described in this paper, the irri gated samples of apples were ob tained from unrts where irrigation...
SALE OF A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 March 1914
SALE QF A WIFE, Judging by a recent occurrence in Port Pirie, whioh is well vouched for, Borne of the reoently arrived Bussian residenta hold peouliar views regarding the marital relationship, There is a good number of the Caar's subjects in Port Pirio, and ono of these brought his wite out with him a few weeks ago. Ho has sinoe be come tired of work, and desired to re turn to his home land. How to raise the neoossary money for the trip was a problem, but after consulting with BO'me of Ills oompatriots the difficulty was overcome by three of them agree ing to pay him £10 for his wife. The woman at first rinsed no objec tions, the money was handed over, and '' the husband departed, Troublo soon N arose in the polygamous household, however, for the woman realised that three husbands were more than she could really manage. She resolved to return to the monogamouB condi tion, and having left her purchasers, is now happy with another country
CORRESPONDENCE. THE OVAL QUESTION. (TO THE EDITOR). [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 March 1914
CORRESPONDENCE THE OVAL QUESTION.' (to THE EDITOR). * Sir,-It is very pleasing to know that the people of 01 unes realise that the oval has become "A White Elephant," and that it is time it was disposed of and a more suitable place obosen. And while some favor one place and some another, I consider the most satisfactory way to deal with it . .would be to take a vote of the rate . payers on the question. The Agricultural Society propose tbo Show Ground, and the A.N.A. also favor the same; but it must not he forgotten that there are many who favor the island; and if the rate payers are not consulted it is quite possible that the show ground may be chosen without giving other places due consideration. If the oval is too far out of the town, how much nearer to the main street, the people of Smeaton Road, Cieswick Road or North Clunes, is the show ground ? It is all very woll to argue as Cr "Weickhardt did in the Council, that the oval should be near the railway; but all the railway stat...
FROM COURT TO ALTAR. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 March 1914
PROM COURT TO ALTAR. The Salvation Army Home in Little Lonsdale street east was on Saturday afternoon the arena of an . interesting ceremony. A considerable number of people, including no small proportion of reporters and press photographers, assembled to see Reuben A. Walters, 18 years of age, married to Francis S. Rogers, 15 years of age. The two young people had some weeks ago caused a local sensa tion by leaving in company for Adelaide without apprising any o£ their friend* or relating, £ourfc prQ_ coedings against Walters ensued. A charge of abduction ag iinst him was dismissed. During the investigation in ttie Richmond Court the young (iouple again exchanged vows of undy ing affection and constancy. Walters asked his sweetheart, "Are your still willing to marry me 1" and Bhe un hesitatingly replied, "Most decidedly; pothing will alter me," The parents of Miss Rogers at first refused their oonBent to the marriage, but ultimately withdrew their refusal.

THE DANCER OF WORMS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 March 1914
THE DANCER OF WORMS, i Stomach and Intestinal "Worms are one of the oiost common complaints throughout Australasia. Indigestion is a primary cause, or they may be produced by Constipation, or through the eating of tainted food or food im properly cooked. There is also the possibility of their introduction into the system in the form of cysts or germs in fruit and meat, so that all classes of the community, irrespec tive of age, are liable to this com plaint. It is not alone the irritation and annoyance caused by these para sitical animals that infest the stomach and bowels, but the more serious consequences which follow that must be kept in view. Prom the highly organised and sensitive Darts which they occupy, Worms give rise to great constitutional derangements, and produce a variety of symptoms, more particularly affecting the stom ach and head. Many cases of Con vulsions, Epilepsy, Hysteria, St. Vitus' Dance, Melancholia, Nervous Diseases and even Insanity, have re sulted from th...
COURSING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 March 1914
COURSING, Agriculturists are not alone in dread of a continuance of the long sustained spoil of dry weather that is at present being experienced in all partH of tho State (writes '! Hotspur"), for coursers, too, are beginning to be gravely apprehensive about the same tiling. The time is almost at hand when greyhounds, especially puppies that will be called upon to fulfil engagements in the Derbies and Oaks in the earlier stages of the season, Rhould bo put into preparatory worlf for their training, but unless a speedy amelioration of the meteorological conditions takes plaoe, trainers will be compelled to defer the commencement 5f operations, for the ground every, wljera is in such an adamantine con. j Mtyou iv? to jwMs ityja let off their 'leads, and, until the much-needed and long wished for rain comes (and a copious downfall at tiiat), the longtails must be restricted to walking exercises only.

THE TURF. NEWMARKET HANDICAP. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 March 1914
THE TURF. NEWMARKET HANDICAP. This greatost of sprinting races was | run at Flemington on Saturday lost. I It will long bo remembered by those | thousands who backed the favorite, Brattle, and " fell in." Iownit, a 20 to 1 shot, upset all calculations by winning by half a length from Cider and Aleconner. The favorite not placed. What can one make of it ? Previous week she beats a team of " top notcliers" with 8.2 up, and a furlong further, and yet failed to scrape into a place. Truly, the ways of the turf are mysterious. Iownit's name was never mentioned by any of the sporting scribes as a probable winner, in fact, he was a back num ber. I only heard one sport in Clunes tip the winner. The books had a " skinner" in the Essendon Stakes, which was won by Wallalo, who had no call with the punters, although his price was 25 to 1. Heis a New Zealander, and was ridden by the craok New Zealand jockey Gray, who rode a good race. The week before this neddy was easily beaten in the Woodclifi ...
DYSPEPTICS NEED NOT DIET. A SIMPLE MEANS OF PREVENTING FOOD FERMENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 March 1914
DYSPEPTICS NEED NOT DIET. A SIMPLE MEANS OF PRE VENTING FOOD. FERMENTA , TION. Food fermentation is the cause of all the discomfort and pain dyspeptics suffer. It does not necessarily fol. low, however, that in order to obtain relief they muBt deny themselves the enjoyment they derive from eating so called indigestible luxuries. The most satisfactory raethod of overcoming the difficulty would be to prevent the fermentation from occurring at all, and this can be done by a very simple means. It must first be explained that most of the foods we eat contain a certain quantity pf acidrformjng elements, and indigestible foods, of course, contain a larger proportion,' When these fdfifla are eaten, the aold collects, irrigates the wqlls of tf>§ stomach, and causes thp food tp fep ment while it is digesting. This far? menting food also gives off gas whioh distends the atomaoh, causing that full, uncomfortable feeling so often noticed after-eating. Ther root of the troub'e is the acid ferm...
STRAY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 March 1914
STRAY NOTES. (BY THE "PROWLER.") During tho past stretch of hot ?weather there has been a lot of in ward (if not outward) swearing by those who -use the rath to tho lailway station. It is simply mvful, and the B.C. ciime m for anything but bless ings. The tar paving arrangement scfiins to bo as far off as tho electric light, which may come into vogue when tho moon ceases to give light. The now signal box at the railway, station was put up with all possible speed some time ago, and it was ex pected that the connections, eto., with points would be fixed and every 1 thing completed for tho summer. | season. The season has come and gone and nothing has been done. Truly it's an ornament to the station, part of the borough, but at present certainly raoro ornamental than useful. The promise of the Railway Commis sioners to put up a new fence at the station in place of the " waybaok" fence that now exists is to be car ried into effect. Evidence of- this fact-a truck load of posts has arrive...

He moved about his close quarters like a Polar bear in IiIB cage-alternately puzzled, angry, miserable, hopeless. Notta loved him, he told himself. She had loved him before the great shock of a contest for her, more un scrupulous, more terrible than the struggle of two men loving one girl is wont to be in civilised times. She had loved him Btill when ho had to make his confession-a confession not only of the evil accruing to his own passions, but to those of his rival. But had she over been again the same bright, lovely Netta of the first happy days at the farm? "Never," ho thought. She had seemed to recover from the first shock of his revelations.

SIMPLE CEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
SIMPLE CEMENTS. One of the simplest hard cements is the well-known mixture of litharge and glycerine made to a stiff paste. It sets hard as a rock and is oil-proof. A solution of water glass mixed with powdered calcium carbonate serves the same purpose. A mixture of boiled iinsee3 oil and fireclay resists acid oetter than most cements, though sul phur melted with glass-powder is also very resistant to chemicals in general. A good stone cement is made by mix ing two parts of magnesium oxide, one part of magnesium chloridc, powdered stone to suit as a filler, and water to make a stiff paste. Basic magnesium chloride is formed..

STORING PETROL IN WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
STORING PETROL IN WATER. G£ new hydraulic method of storn/g' potrol or gasoline is credited with im portant advantages. The unused space in the'storage tank is kept always fill ed with water, and a simple pumping mechanism causes the water to force the oil out as required. In rofilling* the tank the water is drained away. The two liquids do not mix, the light oil always floating on top; there is no loss from evaporation, as there is no gas to fesoapo on refilling, and the oil iB pre served unchanged for any length of time.

Not Worth While. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
Not Worth While. It la certainly not worth while for anyone to endure suffering which can be avoided. Pain is really a drain on i vitality. It is impossible for anyone who suffers from pain to be as ef- | fleient as if pain were absent. A large number of people, however, go through life afflicted with ailments which do not incapacitate them from performing their duties, but which decidedly pre vent them from doing their best. Rheumatism, gout, lumbago, sciatica, neuralgia, blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, biliousness, sick-headache, general debility, grave!, stone and bladder troubles are complaints which afflict many of us, and which are gene rally caused &lt;by retention of uric and biliary 'poisons in the system owing to defective action of the kidneys and liver, and which would disappear If the kidneys and liver -properly per formed their functions.
