OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 30 October 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rustic s.") Statements were made by a doputa lion representative of Northern shires who waited upon the Minister of Cus tonis the other day which are of a lnature calling for more investigation than was promised. The object of the deputation was to -have the duty on todder suspended during the currency of the drought. The aim of the sus pension was according to the speakers, to compel those who had cornered sup plies to sell at reasonable rates. Mr. Sampson, M .I.H.RI said that never bo fore in the history of the Commnon wealth had there been a parallel to the present condition of the country. The total production of hay and chalt in Victosin in normal times was about 1,000,000 tons, of which 900,000 tons was consumcdl locally, leaving about 100,000 tons available for export. The Victorian production was about one third of the total for the Conmlnon wealth. Iec estimated that this yoar tlhere would' only be 05,000. tonus, which, with 100,000 left over from,, l...

VALUE OF COMMON SALT. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 30 October 1914

VALUE OF CONNON SALT Ilesides being such an essential part of culinary art, salt has many other uses perhaps not generally known. Salt cleanse, the palate and furred tongue, and a gargle of salt and water is often eflicacious. A pinch of salt on the tongue, followed ten minutes after by a drinik of cold wrater, often cures a sick headache. Salt hardens the gums, makes tie teeth white, and sweetens the breath. Added to the wrater in which cut-flowers stand, it keeps them fresh. Salted wcater and alcohol in solution should bo used for rubbing weak anklas. Salt used dry in the same manner as snuff will do imiuch to relievo colds, hay fever, etc.. etc., and, if used for bathing tired eyes, it will be found very refreohing. Salt and water will stop hemoirrha go from the extraction of teeth.

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 30 October 1914

TURF TOPICS. (By "Flemington.") Now that we are in aight of "the day;" it can with assurance be said that the troublous times being at present experienced will not "knock the bottom out of the Melbourne Cup" to use the language of pessimists who aired the predliction when it was found that Bri tain would be involved in the war. True, we cannot in reason expect that the great racing carnival at Fleming. ton will be quite as big a thing as usual, but it is certainly not going to be a failure by any means. So far the Derby situation remains usnclhanged. In connection with the classic three-year-old event people are still thinking of Woorak and Mountain Knight to the exclusion of all other can didates. Naxbery, one of those likely to oppose the Sydney cracks, next Sat urday, did all that was asked of him at Sadnown last week in gooei style, but the fore, though indicating that the Positano colt is now himself again. was scarcely of the quality to entitle himn to mention in the same brea...
