SUNNING STROKE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 8 January 1915

SUNNING STROKE. Jones detests work as he would the I plague, and takes a day off upon the slightest pretext. This, of course, does not go down well with his employers, and the forei man informed him that he could toler ate such spasmodic service no longer. The next time he was ill he. would be required to produce a doctor's certifi cate. Otherwise he would be dis missed. Now Jones dearly loves a football match, and when two league teams met recently this was too great a treat to be missed. Realising the consequences of his ab sence without a medical certificate, he hurried away to his doctor and put his caso honestly before him. The medical man, a bit of a wag, saw the humorous possibilities pf the situa tion and wrote: "This is to certify that Tom Jones is suffering' from , and is unable to follow his employment." ('What was the nature of the com plaint '' he was ' asked dubiously. "Can't ta read?" queried Jones in dignantly. "Don't ta see Ah'm suf ferin'from a stroke?"

SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR FINGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 8 January 1915

SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR FINGERS The cuting of the finger nails is one of those, little tasks by which we are relieved only by the grave. It is computed that their average growth in sickness aiid in health is l-32nd of an inch a week, a little, more than an inch and a, half a- year. The rate of growth, however, is not the same for all the fingers, the thumb and, the little linger being the ones whose nails grow more slowly than the others, while the middle finger is the fastest of the lot. In su^nmer it has been observed that they grow quicker than in winter, and some authorities hold that the nails on the right hand lengthen more rapicHy than those on the left. In either case they grow four times as fast as the nails no our toes.

"T.N.T." [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 8 January 1915

T.N.T." Web guucotton in submarine mines is, of course, a very potent explosive, but in many respects it is quite out classed by the compound used in Ger man mines, and known as Trinitroto luene, but abbreviated to "T.N.T.'' in this country, and "Trotyl" in Ger many. A shell torpedo, or mine loaded with "T.N.T" (which requires to be deton ated by means of mercury fulminate), bursts with great violence into large fragments, whereas, if loaded with picric acid, the splinters are very small and cannot, therefore, do as much damage. Although wet guncotton is more powerful, if exploded in close proxi mity to the target, the effect of the "T.N.T.-" is much greater when the explosion takes place some distance away.

SARAH ALICE KRAFT. Miv Dunn appeared for the applicant, whose site was next to Mr. Edney's in Station-street. Koo-Wee-Rup was not a holiday resort; people went there on business, which was mostly transacted in Station-street. He sub mitted that it was not so much the building that should be considered, it might be a big imposing house where no one would feel at home, but they should take into consideration com fort and convenience, and the ex perience of the applicant to make people at home.

THE MANUFACTURE OF CAMPHOR. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 8 January 1915

I THE MANUFACTURE OF CAM j PHOR. . Wherever camphor trees grow you will find camphor distilleries. They are low buildings of mud brick, and their odor is so aromatic that it can be detected two miles off. In' each, build ing there are. a dozen fires. On each fire is a kettle of boiling water, with a perforated'lid. Pitted to .the top of this kettle is an iron cylinder, filled with camphor wood chips of the size of your little finger. Fitted to the top of the cylinder is an empty inverted jar. The steam of the boiling water passing through the cylinder extracts from the camphor wood its oil. This oil, mounting still upward with the steam, settles like brine on the sides 1 of the inverted jar at the top. ' And this brine, when the fire goes out, dries into a substance like frost or snow. White and aromatic, the frost-like sub stance is crude camphor. It is scraped off the sides of the jar,, and refined and pressed into attractive shapes.

"Do you feel pain anywhere?" "No; it's not that exactly," ad mitted the caller. "Just general dis order. You know a mail can't go over a reasonable mileage on his tyres-er, that is, my feet are troubling me;" "What else?" asked'the physician. "My clutches are weak," complained the visitor. "'I drop my knife or my fork, or whatever I happen to be hold ing. Don't seem to be right action in the joints. Must be my bearings need oiling or something." "Rheumatism," diagnosed the phy sician.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 8 January 1915

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. To trap slugs, place a teacup, or any small pot or tin, three parts full of milk, in the soil, so that the slugs can get into it. They are as fond of milb as leeches are of blood, and they will drink until they fall in and get drowned. Keep a disli of oatmeal 011 the toilet stand and rub it freely. on the hands after each washing. This dries, and softens the skin, preventing them from becoming red and rough when exposed to the air. A duster made of cheese-cloth, and slightly moistened with kerosene, is ex cellent for dusting picture frames and paint-work. .If you" will paiut your dark cup boards white.they will be more attrac tive, and you can moro readily tell whether or not they aro clean. To sufferers from cramp, and there are many, here is a remedy. Press the cramped foot against some hard sub stance. Chronic sufferers would be well advised to always have a stone hot water bottle in bed during the cold weather; then when attacked with the cramp the foot can be p...

GERMANY'S INTERNAL DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 8 January 1915

GERMANY'S INTERNAL DANGER. That the internal danger of Germany arising from the exclusion of raw mate rial for her factories is recognised in Berlin to be a terribly serious one is evident from what the German Social ist organ Vorwaerth says:-"It is not wise," declares the A'orwaerts, "to underrate the danger of the war last ing a long time. With regard to food, one or two years do not matter, but the supply of raw materials for our industries is not a thing to be regarded lightly. Germany needs an enormous import of wool, cotton, silk, ilax, tim ber, oil, copper, lead, zinc, leather, and rubber if a great part of the country's factories are not to stand still. The Knglisli have not dared to blockade our harbors for fear of our mines, torpedo boats, and submarines. But the inter national law of maritime warfare gives them other means of cutting oil' our imports. Unemployment is already affecting hundreds of thousands-nay, millions. The Kreuz Zeitung has al ready coined the expressio...
