Correspondence. A FALSE RUMOR. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 1 September 1914
Correspondence. ■ A FALSE RUMOR. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—A statement is gaining local currency to the efLct that all State Government officials had been directed to contribute 2}4 per cent, of the salaries to the war fund. As this false rumor may have originated In a remark made by me at the recent patriotic meeting, I would be grateful if you would allow me space to say that uo such direction emanated from headquarters. The sta"tement" fl made was' that at a meeting of Civil Servants held in Melbourne it was suggested by the members themselves that they should contribute voluntarily to that extent. There has been no thought of coercion, and certainly no necessity for it. Thanking you in anticipation. -Yours, &c., JOHINT SEBIRE.

Football. The semi-final fixtures in con nection with the Yarrawouga As sociation were arranged on Satur day evening. Benalla play Yarra wonga at Mulwala on Saturday next, and St. James v. Mulwala at Yarrawonga on the 12th inst, The gate is fixed at Is. A one-sided match was played at Mulwala on Saturday between the Benalla and local teams, A strong breeze blew into the eastern goal all the afternoon, and having won the toss the visitors naturally took the advantage offered. It was sim ply impossible to play agaiust such odds. Benalla scored 10 goals 2 b to nil in the first term. The home team could not respond when it came their turn for the breeze, only securing 1 goal out of nine shots. Thus at half-time the scores gave Benalla a lead of 48 points. In the third term the visitors only added two goals 3 behinds, while Mul wala forced a sixer in the very teeth of the gale. Mulwala tried desperately to wipe out the grea score against them, but their shoot ing was erratic, and the gam...

£5,000 A WEEK FROM A CAMERA. AMAZING CINEMA PROFITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
£5,000 A WEEK FROM A CAMERA. amazing cinema profits. Had' it not been for tho ingen ious brain of Mr. Edison, tho pro duction of moving j>ictures would have been delayed for years, if not for all time. Other men—Mr. East man, of Kodak fame and fortune, and an Englishman named Blair, who in 1S89 amalgamated with Mr. Eastman—invented the celluloid film, but they had no suitable camera. Then Mr. Edison leapt into tho cinematograph arena and produced the pioneer moving-picture camera. Edison's solution of thu problem, according to his biographer, "invited the production of a Kodak in which from twenty to forty pictures should be taken in cach second, and with, such fineness of adjustment that each should exactly coincide with its predecessors, even when subjected' to tho test of enlargement by pro jection. . This, however, was finally accomplished, and in the summer of1 1889 the first modern moving-picturo camera was made." From that day to this the Edison camera has been the accepte...

Sir George I'aish, editor of the "Statist," ami one of the greatest living authoritiss on economic pro blems, made a remarkable prophecy on Tuesday in the course of an address following the annual dinner of the Political and Economic Cir cle of tho National Liberal Club. The economic condition of the British people at the present time, he said, is one of great strength, and the course of events shows con clusively that as the years pass by it will become even stronger. Wo may now look forward with confi dence to a timo in tho not fur dis tort future when the incomes ol everyone will be over tho poverty line,' and when even the poorest will bo . able to participate in the great wealth wo are accumulating from yeaf to year and from generation to generation. Sir George's prophecy had*a strong bearing upon the introduction of Mr. -Lloyd George's great Budget. Can the country, he asked, afford to spend the 210 millions a yoar which i...

BETTING ON A SUKE THING. " Woman," remarked Mr. Goc^cling, is Heaven's best gift to man, but whe ther it means a married woman or not, I am not so certain. Now, there's my wifeI'vo knowu a good many womon in my time, and I don't think I'd lie; willing to change her for an.v_ woman K ever met, saw or heard of. I'm willing to make her many concessions^ as mo=t men, hut I really think there is u liinit that any reasonable woman ought *o .ibscive.

Away With the Warts. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
Away With the Warts. Warts arc not necessarily malign, but they arc disfiguring, and should bo banished from tho body by pro per treatment, although tho ugcd aro recommended not to apply this without medical supervision. Dr. Felix Szontagh recommends quite a novel treatment. It con sists in covering the wnrt arid the surrounding skin, to tho width of 1 centhncter, with ordinary caout chouc . plaster for weeks—even, if necessary, for two or three months.. When tho plaster bocomcs loose it must be removo.l anil ro;>Ia:ed i;y a new piece. Tho oliwtyr is to be changed once in threo or four days. Any adherent residua is to bo re moved with ether or potr il, cr.r&lt;> being taken that neither the part nc-r tho skin is rubbed energetically, Itcctiuse irritation "f tho skin raw delay the disappearances. Pr. Szon tngli cannot explain the aition of his simplo method >r its excellent results, but it is certainly pilii ient. CORNS ALSO CONSIDERED. • Commenting on '.he new treat...
THE WOMAN WHO TRIES BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
THE WOMAN WHO TRIES BUSI NESS. . If a woman is ever to retain hoi' pre sent position in the business world, Kile must look to it that she makes her value felt. She lias many advantages. She is punctual, painstaking, paUvnt of monotony, amenable to discipline, ready and willing; .indeed, she errs, as a rule, rather from excess of zeal than from its defect. But she 1ms two things to learn; First, that her health- is iter greatest capital; and, secondly, that to rise above mediocrity it. is necossarj to think for yourself. For this lasv shortcoming her educators, must have much to answer for; but it cannot be too clearly understood tint in Iht; struggle for existence there is no room for tho typist who has not at any r.itc the intelligence of the average criu posilor, nor for the secretary who for gets to post important letters, or in closes tho loiter to '"Dear Jlr. A." :n tho envelope addresed to ''Mrs. B." It is lapses of this sort which "jir.r at present so much of woman's work, a»...
THE DAIRY. 27 COWS NET OWNER £160 IN ONE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
THE DAIRY, t — 27 COWS NET OWNER £160 IN ONE MONTH. It was recently my pleasure, as re- j presentative of the Oklahoma Agri->j cultural College, to supervise the testing of five cows in the American Jersey, Cattle Club's .Register of Mer it, Nowata County, Oklahoma. This 1 Jersey herd which consists of some thirty head of cows and an equal number of calves and yearlings, is recognised as one of the best in Okla- ■ homa, and with its strain of good producing show animals will no doubt very shortly rank with the best Jersey farms in America. At the head of this herd is Finan cial' Countess's Lad, who was grand champion bull at the 1912 Iowa Dairy Cattle Congress. This was the largest and most strongly contested dairy cattle show ever held in Amer ica. In selecting Financial Countess's Lad, Mr. Jones obtained a bull that is not onlj a great show animal, but one that is also a prepotent breeder. His dam, Financial Countess, one of the greatest- Jersey cows ever impor ted, made 9351b....

THE FARM SEPARATOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
THE FARM SEPARATOR. I The farm separator . has come to stay, consequently the conditions un dcr which the machine does its clean est work should be understood. Even temperature. and even speed, are Imperative if we'would do the best work. Separators should be checkcd occasionally in their work so ■as to guard against a loss of fat. Formerly tin average Joss of .12 to .15 fat left in skim-milk was consid ered fairly good.-At the present timi a loss of over .5 is thought bad. It pays to watch closely, the separator. It must be borne ' in • minxl tint a slight loss in s'-imming reaches a prodigious amount in the course of a year. | There is no machine used on the form ns much as the hand separator; hence, the importance of securing a good one and keeping it in the beBt of order. Separate the cream from the milk at a consistency producing approxi mately about ton gallons of creirn from every hundred gallons of milk. Cool the cream immediately after the separation.
