EDIBLE DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 5 November 1914

EDIBLE DOGS. Quite unlike the quadruped to which we are accustomed is the Chinese ed ible dog; which.is destined from the beginning for the table. Like the ed ible rat of the. same, country, he is fert mainly upon vegetable food, which is often delicately prepared, and specially devised in order to give the dog's flesh a peculiar flavor and aroma. The result is something quite differ ent from the flesh of the ordinary dog of the Western worldi which feeds gen erally in • a very miscellaneous way. and never with a view to the suitabil ity of his flesh for human consumption The genuine Chinese edible dog is known by his bluish-black tonguo, which is a peculiar mark of his vari ety. In his infancy and early youth the dog's tongue is red; and upon reaching maturity and the edible age it suddenly becomes black, sometimes within a single fortnight. Another peculiarity of this dog is his lack of the barking faculty. It is said that the dog can bark, and on rare occasions does so; but these...

THE ROMANCE OF RUBBER. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 5 November 1914

THE ROMANCE OF RUBBER. At the present time it is estimated that the vast rubber industries in Ceylon, Malaya, and other placeB in the East are responsible for the em ployment of £50,000,000 capital, and this vast industry owes its concep tion to the enterprise of one man— 1 e., Mr. H. A. Wickham, who, on be half of what ia known as the Middle Eastern rubber Industry, was present ed with a cheque for a thousand pounds and a certificate of annuity or- account of the great services . he has. rendered in this particular field' of commerce. - It was Mr. Wickham, who, in 1876, brought from Brazil to Kew Gardens the seeds from which have sprung .the vast rubber forests of the East. He was commissioned by the India Office to introduce rubber from Brazil into Ceylon; the difficulty was how to do it. He went to the Topagos Plateau on the Amazon, a remote locality, seized the opportunity of chartering a steam er which happened to be there, hastily collected, with the aid of the Indians, hiu ba...

The Thistles Act. DEPUTATION TO THE COUNCIL. As a diversity of opinion exists regarding the constant cutting of the shore thistle as a means of eradication) the matter was venti lated "at the monthly meeting of the Woorayl Shire Council on Friday last. The deputation was from Mount Eccles, and included Messrs W. and JR. Risely, B. S. Anderson, C, Harrison, P. Heintz, R. E. Rutherford, W. G. Brown, S. Chrisholm, 3. Denham, C. Marks and A. Griggs. In in troducing the settlers, Cr Hall re marked that if the shore thistle were let alone it would eradicate itself, so a request was to be made by the deputation that it be not made compulsory to cut the thistle, which would give more time to the, poisoning of rabbits. Mr W. Riseley said that he had had a lot of experience with shore thistles. During the past four years he had cut shore thistles on his property, and when they got the better of him with the lioe he took to the slasher.

SWITZERS MUST WORK. Switzerland is a country that lias a short and easy method of dealing with the lazy man who is work-shy. The Swiss act upon the theory that a man who is unemployed is, if left to him self, prone to become unemployable, and that for a community to allow any one of its members who is cap able of work to remain unemployed is a public waste. In industrial Swit zerland there is no place for the idle. It is considered the duty of the authorities to assist in every way pos sible persons honestly seeking em ployment, and it is also held to be their duty to punish (he work shirker and (o force him to earn his bread before he may eat it.
