THE           Penshurst Free Press. Published Every Saturday Morning SATURDAY, April 18TH 1914.   Notes and Comments. - Saturday afternoon's meeting of the Hamilton Terrier Coursing Club attracted good entries from Ballarat, Penshurst and other places. The gate receipts were very satisfactory, and the coursing was good throughout the day. One of the features of the afternoon was the consistent running of Mr Jack Page's two dogs, Popinjay and Vera, both of which were success-   ful in carrying off a stake — the Trial stakes fell to the former, and the Easter Gift to Vera, after a series of interesting runs.     We beg to draw attention to the Commonwealth of Australia's notice which appears in this issue re enrol-   ment on the Electoral Rolls of the State of Victoria. The ball held on Race night, under the auspices of the local Mechanics' committee was a decided succe...

The engineer, whose clock t is, bestirs himself, and 1 follow him across the stretch, of ground that sep arates the bachelors' quarters from the factory.

Along the length of the room are ranged gas engine, steam engine, aiid two refriger ators. The adjoining room houses the gas-producer plant and the steam boiler.

The world is eager for something new, which, however sim ple it may be, will save labor, or ex tpense, or do things better. Let it be more convenient, or promote pleasure or safety, or "do away with faults, or reducc waste. The person who gets public opinion of such an invention is on the" road to wealth. He will cease to be a servant; he bccoirtes a proprietor: ' People who handle things in every day use are the natural inventors of better things, and the natural capital ists of to-morrqw. 2. Study the subject of patenting. Head' the splendid advice that Edisou •gives.

HOW TO TAKE THE TEMPERATURE OF ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 25 April 1914

HOW TO TAKE THE TEMPERA TURE OF ANIMALS. Oft/011 a rise of, temperature is "aa indication of soma '.serious disease wliioh may not show itself for some days, thus giving the owner warning o£_ something wrong, and he can then promptly iso late, and if a horse, he can give the animal a rest and. careful treatment and dieting, and so probably save a long and serious illness. It "is always considered that mechan ism for keeping the temperature normal a.nd balancing the production of heat and the loss of heat equal is situated somewhere at the base of the brain. The loss of heat is due to radiation and evaporation from the'skin, vaporisation of water discharged by the lungs, warm ing the air breathed, elevation of tem perature. of food and drink. It has been estimated that a healthy adult ■man evolves- enough heat in twenty four hours to raise 441b (about .4J gal Ions) of water from freezing point to tha boiling point.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 25 April 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") There is. every reason to commend Llitt dosire of the Minister of Agncul . turo to increase the average yield of wheat in Victoria. . It has already been shown that the adoption of pro per methods in the way of cultivation would add immensely to the annual' yield of wheat, and, incidentally, to th«. wealth of tho State as a whole. The Government Statist's returns show that, the maximum yield' was ,obtained in, the County of Borung, where an average of 18-1G bushels was harvested. The Minister. of Agricul ture (Mr. Hutchinson) attributes this to the fact that the farmers in that district have always been to the front in adopting up-to-date methods of cul tivation, and in following the teach ings of the Agricultural department as regards manuring, fallowing, and thor ough cultivation. as a preparation of the land for wheat. Gladstone County was seoond on the list with 17.38'! bushels, closely followed by Kara Kara with 17.23, and Lowan 1(5.21 bushels...
