CAMT BROKEN UP. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 24 February 1914
CAMT BROKEN Owing to the continued heat and tho danger of fires it has been found necessary to bring- the camp of the Royal Australian Keld Artillery at Soyinour to a close much sooner than was expected. Tho mon arrived on February Its, and the weather has been intensely hot, but the men nave stood it woD, and have engaged in exercise ?work and manoeuvring-, Tho more serious part of the annual train ing-that ol field-firing practice with 181b. quick-firing guns, could not be undertaken. The grass in the vicinity of the camp is long and dry, awl it would be dangerous to use the cannon. In view of this an order has been issued for tho breaking-up of the camp which took place 011 Monday, when tho artillery men returned to Melbourne by roau. Tiiis is one of the worst admissioni. of weakness of which we have rend. Bush flr.:s do not get going so quickly in places whore there. are large bodies of men prepared to fight them av to justify the abandonment of ahy part of the practice." If our...

STRANGE DISEASE IN TOMATOES [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 24 February 1914
STOAXGE DISEASE IN TOMATOES A d's asc caus:n f consi'.erable an xiety anion? some of the tomato growers of die district has been re ceiving- particular attention by Mr \V. H. Spinks, the local fniit in spector (says the Young "AVitness," N.S.W.). A quantity of fruit in fected with the disease and also por tions of the bushes were sent to the bureau of microbiology for examina tion by the biologist to ascertain whether the disease" was a fungus or a bacterial one. The nature of the aisease is a wry hard core in the fruit, which renders it valueless. A good indication of its presence in a crop is the unhealthy upright and deformed appearance" of the bushes ?and-the-time the main crop is ripen ing. The result of the examination which has been conducted by ttie biologist revtals very little. Tiio disease so far has the scientific staff puzzled, but it is very likely the ? cause, of the disease will shortly be unravelled, as the inspector has "been instructed to obtain . further informa ...

A severe case of child's scab* pores, which caused the parents much anxiety, has been perfectly .cored by Zam-Bnk in the homo of Mr and Mrs M. Johns, of IS"! Palmerston Street, Carlton, Mel bonrne. Telling how Zam-Buk rescued her child from awful disfigure ment, Mrs John3 said :-" My little girl, Constance, was attacked by a nasty eruption which brok ; ont all over her head.

SCARCITY OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 27 February 1914
SCARCITY OF WATER. It was evident that another af fliction coincident with the drought should be a diminution of the water supply in various places in which the supply was inadequate or contam inated. Wo read of some people, oven in a Melbourne suburb, washing in soda water and boiling potatoes, in ringer beer, but this is surely a humorous exaggeration, reminding One o! the back-block bank manager who was said to have performed his morn ing ablutions with two 'bottles of aerated waters and shaved himself with the aid of another. This was an aristocratic resource. The common people would haVc had to utilise the more plebeian beer, that is if they did not, as i3 probable, prefer to ir rigate their throats with it. sfc A A *
THE FIRE FIEND. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 27 February 1914
THE FIRE FIEND. ?Hie prolonged dry -weather ha.? na turally been the prolific cause of ex tensive grass fires throughout this State and from all parts come dismal stories of homesteads destroyed, pas tures denuded, valuable forest timber consumed and stock sacrificed in the fiery tempest. Although BeeChworth is practically immune from attack, the surrounding district has Buffered considerably, but it is satisfactory to know that whenever an appeal for help reached the town it met with a roady response from a host of volunteers. Some delay has oc curred from the want of somo respon sible body to direct operations and it would be advisable to have this mat ter settled so that organised efforts can bo made promptly in the futul*. ilt i ili i

THE WEEK. 4T HOMB AND ABROAD. 3HE WEATHER That- mythical personage, the clerk of the weather, is apparently fond of .1 practical joke. On Wednesday masses ot cumuli gradually piled up and as the sun went down there Were hopes of a thunderstorm with a good soaking downpour. Presently there was a flash of lightning and a roll of thunder, followed by a few drops of rain-and that was all. Still we may hope that this is a kind of mild notification of an impending change. If so the sooner it eventuates thj> better for all concerned. Ther0 hav® I been heavy falls in Queensland and New South Wales, from two to six inches in places, ao our turn snay come 6con.
