ON CHICKENPOX. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
ON CHICKENPOX. .This is an ailment which is iuci-1 dental to hot climates, and is well known. Ill effects do not usually re sult to adult birds, but chickens are apt to acquire roup, or some other ailment, as an after effect. The first noticeable symptoms are small, pale eruptions, or warts, appearing about the eyes, head, and nostrils, gradual ly extending over the comb and eyes, some birds becoming blind; in severe cases it occasionally happens that both eyes are destroyed. It is a' blood disease, and its onset is usually in the autumn. It is highly infecti ous, and affected birds should be re moved from the yard directly the symptoms arc noticed. A good treat ment is:-Powdered oxide of zinc, Bogr.; glycerine, idr.; lanoline, i dr.; lard, 6dr. Melt the.lard and lanoline together, add the glycerine, and stir in the zinc until tlx; ointment sets. The most simple and effective way to apply the ointment Is with the finger, The giving of plenty of green food will purify the blood, and ...
LATE QUEEN OF SWEDEN [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
LATE QUEEN OP SWEDEN The late Queen Sophie of Sweden was a great reader, and was well ac quainted with many of the religious books that ha"e been published In the last thirty years (says "The West minster Gazette")-She read the books of Dr. F. B. Meyer with much appre ciation, and took the ilrst opportu nity of hearing him preach on an in cognito visit to London. Queen So phie attended several years ago the Keswick Convention, with which she was In full sympathy. Few in the great tent were aware that the sweet faced elderly lady in black was a Queen. In her many years of ill health the Queen was never idle, for she loved to work for the poor and needy. The Salvation Army and the late General Booth held a high place in her thoughts. Volumes dealing with foreign missions were perused by Queen Sophie with practical re sults, for she contributed to various special efforts.

DORKING FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
DORKING FOWLS. The Dorking- Fowl was brought to England at the time of the Conquest, the Romans being-responsible for its introduction. It is essentially a table breed, possessing abundance of meat of a fine, sweet and juicy quality. It has accounted for the production of some enormous birds by crossing with other breeds, such as Indian Game, Buff Orpingtons, Faverolles and Mal ines represent. The body of the Dorking as bred for the show Bench is of an oblong square shape, and size1 as well as colour counts for much. The older varieties of Dorkings, namely, the Red and the White, have failed to maintain their position against the less ancient Dark and Sil* ThO Dorking:. I ver Grey birds, but for what reason it is difficult to explain, as they pos sessed a striking appearance, and, in addition, a quality of flesh unsurpass ed by that of any other breed. It is generally supposed that the Dorking is extremely delicate during its chickenhood, and if reared on heavy, damp soil there is s...
THE POULTRY RUN. FEATHER-EATING FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
THE POULTRY RUN, FEATHER-EATING FOWLS. Tliis vicc is common with fowls kept in confinement, and it is very rare among those at liberty. It is due in the main, to want of occupa tion, and its avoidance is best brought about by providing- such work as scratching1 among: ' '.ox for grain.

Interstate Commission. TARIFF AND COMBINES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
Interstate Commis sion. TARIFF AND COMBINES. Mr A. B. Piddington and his col leagues, Messrs G. Swinburne and N. Lockyer, the Interstate Commis sioners, are rendering inestimable service in placing reliable information on matters of vital importance at the disposal of the electors. When the tariff was discussed in Parliament there was a flood of loose talkj some mem bers repeated the fairy tales of impor ter or manufacturer. The modern M.P. must be superflcally omniscient; he handles hundreds of questions, and necessarily, masters but two or three of them. In place of that vogue talk, men who have devoted their lives to com mercial and tariff issues are taking evidence, are asking witnesses ques tions which go right to the heart of the matter, and are checking the answers by personal examination of factories and careful study of figures supplied by statists, Federal, State and Foreign. Already^ the commissioners have brought to light facts which must cause all thoughtful Australians...

PRICES AND WAGES FOOD PRICES INDEPENDENT OF PAY [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
PRICES AND WAGES FOOD PRICES INDEPENDENT PAY (By L. G. Chiozza Money, in "Daily News and Leader.") 4 Staring out at me from the columns of a daily newspaper, published as the considered utterance of a member ol Parliament, I see a statement to the effect that If the wages of British work men were doubled to-morrow, the change would be of no value to them because tho prices of commodities would rise in the same proportion, and there fore they would be no better off than before. It is necessary to take serious note of this statement, because I find it Is the expression of an opinion which Is widely held up and down tho United Kingdom at the present time. This opinion has gained ground because of the reaction In pricos which has taken place during the last half generation. Because that rise in prices has can celled the value of tho rise in wages in tho same period, people have jumped to the conclusion that higher wages and higher pr!ce3 are necessary concomi tants of each othor. It is ...

CHAPTER XV. Lady Montamor. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
CHAPTER XV. I Lady Montamor. Lady Montamor was seated at the writing table in her boudoir. Of French extraction, she had, as the pretty bru nette Julie de Villeneuve, captured the hitherto unconquered affections of Lord Montamor. But, as southern born brunettes, unless they "vnt on flesh," as it is brutally termed, do not retain the smooth skin and rich beau ty of youth as long as their northern sisters, so it would have ueen hard for one knowing Julie de Villeneuve In -her first girlhood's bloom to recog nise her in this withered, faded, old lady with the crumpled brown skin, the prominent .bones of cheek and brow, the scant grey hair under a black lace head-dress. Lady Monta mor could not (be rofbbed by age of her magnificent eyes. But even they had lost their clearness and iiro and their focua uf things, she gazed down at the notepaper on which she was liter ally scribbling letters, through her pince-nez, and would have reminded any stranger of an old owl as she sat there in her ...

ST. PANCRAS [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
ST. PANCRAS Mrs H. B. Irving, famous as the crea tor of the part of "Trilby" on the stage, has played many popular roles, but none more popular than that of "pud dins lady" down St. Pancras way. The name la an Invention of the chil dren, and It has stuck. It should be explained to tnoso who don't know St. Pancras children that Mrs Irving Is one of the visitors who go unobstrusively among the poor and glvo valuable hints on household mar keting and cookery. She related some of her experiences to a "Dally News" representative: "I may find the mother 111 In bed when I visit a home," she said, "Or perhaps sho cannot leave tihe baby and ethers of the family. They must .lave their meals, of course, and It may not be wise to give the money to buy them. So I go out myself among the stalls In Somer3 Town and see what I can get. "Well, I can buy 3 lbs. of potatoes for a penny-quite good-a ha'penny worth of carrots. As for meat, It Is bought In 'pieces.' I buy them at 3d. or -id. a pound." "Yo...
RADIUM'S WAR ON CANCER INCURABLE CASES RELIEVED [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
RADIUM'S WAR ON CANCER INCURABLE CASES RELIEVED While there is as yet no doctor who will say that radium ia a "cure" for cancer (says "The Daily Express"), there is among those who have had ex perience of the treatment of cancer by radium a growing hope that its strange powers may one day be successfully harnessed. This hope lias received what to a non-medical mind seems like a very wonderful confirmation in results which have been obtained in the Cancer Cha rity Homo connected with the Middle sex Hospital. But it must be under stood that medical research men are extremely unwilling to create the im pression that they have found a "cure" unless they have much stronger evi dence than has been obtained in the home. Hitherto an inoperable case of cancer has been regarded as ultimately fatal, save in the rare and almost miracu lous circumstances of a recovery tak ing place "by Itself." The Cancer Charity was founded many years ago as a place in which incurable cancer patients might awai...
SCROOGE IS HEARD "BLACKMAIL AND CACOPHONY." [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 March 1914
SCROOGE IS HEARD "BLACKMAIL AND CACOPHONY." That Christmas Is no longer a. fes tival, but a nuisance, has long- been a heresy privately held by many. But with tlio dreadful example of Scrooge before them they have darod to noth ing more than dark mutterlngs. They aro of those who give, but without Joy, and who let the dogs loose on cnrollers If tho street Is so dark that the dogs cannot be recognised. But this year-it Is a fact so signifi cant that the sounds of tho ltnell should be mentioned to all those who claim they retain tho truo spirit of Christmas-the heretics aro publicly slating their heresy.
