THE POWER OF GRACEFULNESS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 March 1914
rEl POWER OF GRACEFULNESSB A woman may not be beautiful, but if she possesses a .graceful carriage she has a power of attraction that mere regularity of feature might well envy. 'All grace consists in motion. The great secret of it is to unite in the same movement apparent contradic tions-quickness and softness, vivacity and mildness, gentleness and spirit LEase is the essence of grave. When Milton describes the grace of an angel, it is "smooth, sliding with out step," and Guido's angels, grace ful as Taglioni or Duvernay, seem to have been painted after Milton's de scription. The seat of grace is in all parts of the body that have motion-the legs, hands, arms, head, lips, eyebrows, and ?articularly the neck. As the head is almost continually in motion, the muscles of the zloek, in order that the. head may move with Freedomn and ease, shorild be extreme' ly supple. Thlts suppleness may be acquired by practice. French women possess it in an extraordinary degree. A Frenchwoman, sittin...

CARRAJUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 March 1914
CARRAJUNG. The rainfall at Carrajung for the month of February was 14 points, which fell on the 7th of the month. This has been an ex ceptionally dry summer. Less than three inchesot ram has fallen dur Ing the past three months. 'The hills under dro.ughty conditions present rather a dismal appear ance to the eye. The fires of a couple of weeks ago, which caused a great deal of damage, are now fairly under contro!, and unless the present doughty conditions con tmue, there should be no further outbreaks. A. M'Lean and Co. (P. Dunbar, auctioneer) held a successful cat tle sale here on the 28th ult. It is the mtention of this old estabhls hed firm to do their utmost to build up successful periodical sales here, and if the residents can find the cattle the 'sa!es will be more successful than formerly.

GOOD BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 March 1914
GOOD BREEDING. The best bred women do not fus. Phey take their gowns and their furni ture and their jewels as a matter of :ourse. They are unconscious of their veils and their golves, and they expect 3veryone else to be equally so. If they iee an intimate wearing a handsome gown. they refer to it admiringly, but they also preface their comment with in apology. Their differences with their husbands are not aired, neither are the domestic upheavals. The repose of the well-bred woman is not the quiet of weakness. It is the calm of trained faculties, balanced so ,icely that an earthquake may cause a change of colour, but will not bring forth a loud cry. Well-bred women are a boon to the human race. They help the worli to maintain a high standard both of mor. las and behaviour.
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 March 1914
MISCELLANEOUS. There is probably in all the world only one town built of glass, and that is to be found near Yellowstone Park, in the United States. The glass is not artificial but natural, being formed by ages of volcanic action. It is dark green or black in hue, but in every other respect resembles the artificial product. Easily cut into slabs and quite impervious to the weather, it makes excellent building material. The world is a beautiful book, but ol little use to him who cannot read it. It is good to rub and polish our brain against that of others. A physician announces that distress ing or excessive palpitation of the heart ean always be arrested by bending dou 'ble-the head down and hands hanging_ -so as to produce a temporary conges tion of the upper portion of the body. In nearly every instance of nervous or anomic palpitation the heart imme diately resumes its normal function. II the movements of respiration are arrest. ed during this action the effect is still more rapi...

PENTLAND-GRUBB.

PRACTICAL IDEAS IN PIG, HANDLING. At the recent meeting- of the Inker nan (S.A.) Agricultural Society, an in. ;erchange of opinions by the farmers aresent was started by Mr. C. E. Dan :els delivering the opening remarks. He was confident, he said, that there was a substantial income to be made mrt of pigs if properly managed.

The ring fence ;hould be 3 .eet high, to keep out other itock; posts, 27 feet apart, with three ,ron droppers between. The fence should be of six wires, the first two aarb, the next plain and barb wire al :ernately. The lower wires should he ibout five inches apart, and the top wire ten inches from the one below it The division fences would be the same is the ring fence, except the top barb wire woula not be iequired.

"CHRISTIAN SCIENTIST" JEERALANG RESIDENT'S SAD DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 10 March 1914
"CHRISTIAN 'SCIENTLST'" JEERALANG RESIDENT'S SAD DEATH. A 6ad and sudden death oc cured at Jeera'ang on Tuesday'Iast ,hen Mrs. J. P. Jolly passed away after a short il!ness. The deceased lady, who, we un derstand, wva a Christian Scientist, had been suffering for a time from septic phlebitis in the left leg, but probably was not aware of ~the dan ger. Christian Scientists believe more mn faith hea!ing than doc tors, and consequently medical as sistance was not obtained, especi ally as she appeared to be improv ing. On Tuesday her husband gave her a drink of water, and whilst mn the act of drinking she collap sed and died. The matter was reported to the police, and the" coroner, Mr. VW.

THE RIVER IMPROVEMENT SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 10 March 1914
THE RIVER IMPROVEMENT SCHEME. -o-- In suggesting that a trust be formed for snagging and cutting the principal bends of the Latrobe river, the conference at Traralgon made the best possible proposal. It this idea is carried out the land owners concerned will practically have the 'matter in their own hands The Government will, it is expec ted, contribute some proportion of the cost. Very probably they wilt advance the money, and con sequently may insist on a'I plani being submitted for approval. The landowners wi'l have complete con trol: They will appoint the exe cutive committee, approve or re ject all plans, and have their hands on the purse. Thus the trust can spend just as much or just as hlt tle as they like, and the complete scheme can be carried out by in stalments. The Government may contribute one third or one-fourth of the cost, but the landowners must be prelpared to find the bulk of the money themselves. As some of the river flats wi'l be doubled in value, and every acre...

DYSPEPTICS NEED NOT DIET. A SIMPLE MEANS OF PREVENTING FOOD FERMENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 10 March 1914
' DYSPEPTICS NEED NOT DIET. A SIMPLE MEANS OF PRE VENTING FOOD FERMEIN TATION. Food fermentation is thecause dt all the discomfort and pain all the dyspeptics suffer. It does not necessarily fo!Iow, however, that in order to obtain re'let they must deny themselves the enjoyment of eating so-called indigestible luxu ries. The most satisfactory me thod of oercomln'g the difficulty would be to prevent the termen tation from occurmg at all, and this can be done by a very simple means. It must first be explained that most of the food we cat con tamns a certain quantity of acid forming elements, and indigestible foods, of course, contain a larger proportlon. When these foodsare eaten, the acid collects, irritates the walls of the stomach, and it causes the food to ferment while digesting. This fermenting food also gives off gas, which distends the stomach, causing that full, un comfortable fee'ing so often noti ced after eating. The root of the trouble is the acid fermentation. To success...
