RETURN TO ROMANCE COOMBE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914

RETURN TO ROMANCE COOMBE. (By Eden PhlUpotts In "The Daily News and Leuacr.") Life comes laden still with good days that whisper of romance, when in some local sanctity, or haunt of old legend, our feet loiter for a little before we pass forward again. I indeed seek these places, and confess an incurable affection for romance in my thoughts and deeds, I would not banish hor from art or life, and though most in tellectuals of to-day will have none of her, spurn romantic and classic alike, and take only "realism' to their bosoms; yet who shall declare that rea lism Is the last word, or that reality belongs to her drab categories alone? "There is no 'reality' for us-nor for you either, yo sober ones, and we are far from being so alien to one another as yo suppose, and perhaps our good will to get beyond drunkenness is just as respectable as your belief that ye aro altogether incapable of drunken ness." A fragrant return to romance must surely awaits literature, when our ar tists have d...

WHAT IS NECESSARY IN iXH© SICK ROOM. Three necessities which &r~3 indiiF) pensable in a siokroom are suntMaflii fresh air, and cleanliness.

GAY WELCOME TO 1914 SHEPHERD AND THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914

GAY WELCOME TO 1914 SHEPHERD AND THE MOON. (By W. Beach Thomas in "The Dally . Mall.") In the country we enter the New Year gaily. The moon shows a thin and dainty sickle over the gi'ove, and throws just enough light to sparkle on snow and rime. The stars in the belt of Orion,in which French sailors find peculiar luck, shim mer electrically in the frosty air of a night as true to season as ever the year was in good old time-let us say in 1861 -when "Good King Wenceslas" was sung along the Ouse to the tune of the fenmcn's skates at the hour when the Old Year went and the New Year came. On one down that 1 know of the New Year will he seen in by the only men who can really act as carol. The shep herd's light twinkles on the hill, look ing from below about as big as Alde baran or Vega and out-winking the North Star. The hurdles are packed with straw, the ewes are collected, and tho cry of new-born lanibs and the troubled bleat of tho ewe following after the shepherd are likely to make t...

SPEAKING WITHOUT USING THE MOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914

SPEAKING WITHOUT USING THE | MOUTIT.

Cer tain consonants, such as "m" aVI "p" arc not clearly transmitted, but .' it is expected that misunderstanding J from this source will be avoided by J using a special' code of numbered words.

SIR,-Might I, through your valu able medium, draw the attention of the local authorities to the disgrace ful manner in which dogs are allowed to roam about the streets, and thus become a great source of danger to the travelling public generally, and especi ally to motor-cyclists, as they seem to be the "targets" at which they must run out to, and bark at.

SUN POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914

SUN POWER. It may Tie that very shortly it will be possible to utilise sun-power to commercial advantage. A plant of lOO-horse-power was last year in stalled at Cairo for pumping purposes. After running satisfactorily for three days the heat was too great for the zinc boilers used, which had been found satisfactory in the United States. Cast-iron boilers have now been ordered for temporary use, but it is intended'in future to use dished steel plates. In the experimental plant, starting up at noon on colt] water, steam can be obtained in three minutes. The exhaust steam is re turned to a condenser, a special type of low-pressure engine being used. If the present plant proves satisfac tory it will of course open up an im mense field in the Soudan for sim^ ilar institutions for irrigation puji* poses.

WHAT PEOPLE EAT. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914

WHAT PEOPLE EAT. Nearly every nation has its own particular forma of fooa. and things which some races would not touch are considered by others as tho greatest luxury. For instance, whilo the Arab oats lotus bread and dhourra with the relish of fresh dates, the Greenlander gorges himself on animal fat and whale oil as' the necessary moans of keeping warmth, in the body. Hindoos will not touch- any form of flesh, but live happily on rice and rancid butter. An Englishman ib sup posed to value beef and bacon above all other articles of food, while tho dwellers in the Apennines live on chest nuts. In ancient days the Roman em perors were accustomed to have a pea cook served at all great feasts as one of the principal dainties, while these bright birds' nests and rats form choice dislves in a Chinese menu,

COST OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914

COST OF "WAR. Colonel Benke, a well-known Ger man authority on war and economics, published recently a remarkable atudy of the cost of war. Ho shows conclu sively that a war would no more ruin « great State to-day than it did in the past, and that Germany would not be seriously hit by a year of warfare. Tho cost of a year's war to a power which has 3,000,000 men in the field, . would npt be mora than £550,000,000, or about ten shillings per day per man. This would include the first heavyf cost of mobilisation, extra fortification works, etc. On tho first weeks of war would go about an eighth of the sum mentioned, including about £62,000,000 to cover the increased demand for gold in civil life and business. The State would have to provide £180,000,000 during the first three weeks: of war. 'Colonel Hepke predicts that Germany would easily stand tho cost. The first year's war_ would _not cost more them 5 per cent, of the national wealth, and would bd easily wiped out by the sav ings of...

BLOOD CLOTS IN EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914

BLOOD CLOTS IN EGGS. Most poultry keepers occasionally find a clot of blood in the yolk, and sometimes in the white of an egg. The clot in the white is due to tlio rupture of a blood vessel in the ovi duct. and when it is in the. volk some rupture of a blood vessel in the ovar ies is the cause. The cure is to feed freely on green foods, provide litter for scratching (where tliere isn't any already), and don't overfeed. Tot) much meat feeding: will cause the blood-clots to appear in the eggs. It sets up a high state of excitement in the ovaries, which work at high pres sure in throwing off a yolk almost every day, and the almost daily pas* sage of the egg along the oviduct j gives that organ little ch.mce of rest, ' The constant strain of passing an egg along will find out the weak spot in any of the small blood vessels, andi if there is one, it will leak, and causo the clot in the white of the egg. -The cutting out of the stimulating foods, and the plentiful supply of green stuff us...
