Of Interest to Women. Germ Destroyers. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 28 February 1919
By Mother o' Pearl Germ Destroyers. The scare of plague, of sudden deatli from germs, is not without its good effects, and nianjr a home is receiving much needed attention in various ways that has been carelessly overlooked for some time. Many people are careless about airing the beds and bed-linen also indifferent to the danger from germ-laden dish-cloths, lloor-cloths, damp towels, etc. Nature's groat beneficial germ de stroyers are sun, light and fresh air. These are the most effective- known, and rank before chemical disinfectants. Germs have a hard battle for existence where sun, light and fresh air hold sway. Kverv room in the house should be flooded with sunshine mid air as much as possible—winter as well as summer. It is not cold air, but impure air, that must be guarded against. Bed coverings, mattresses, •pillow-, clothing should bo given frequent sua and air baths for hours at a time. When they are shaken or beaten, it should be out-| ol'-doors. Dryness and heat are othe....

COUNTRY KILLING IS PRODUCERS OWN JOB. Government Help Unlikely. Stock Raisers Should Follow Example of Dairymen and Handle Product Until Consumer is Reached. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 28 February 1919
COUNTRY KILLING IS PRODUCERS OWN JOB. Government Help Unlikely. Stock Raisers Should Follow Ex ample of Dairymen and Handle Product Until Consumer is Reached. A tew weeks ago the "Voice of the Non.h" contained a leading article com menting in strong terms regarding the present: system of the meat trade. Several of the more progressive country papers have endorsed the opinions ex pressed ill these columns, and it can be v,:jj)ected, with a little more publicity, tha1; aome workable scheme will soon be presented. On this question the Uralla "Times' has this to say:—Several country dis tricts are strongly advocating the kill ing of beef in the country. It is argued by men who have given a lot of thought to the question that it offers lots of ad vantages to the producer; but apparent ly these same men, or some of them, are not prepared to rely solely on the pro ducers for its success, wanting some as surance that the Government will take a fatherly interest in it. The Govern-: ment is n...

I didn't hear what he said. Julie tells me that Mr. Matin is re suming housekeeping again. She didn'l know whether he purposed getting mar ried again. Of course, he'd have to get a divorce first. You'll rem ember that the domestic differences were aired in the court some months ago. Jack Stout seemed very interested when l saw him last night about an early morning surf love affair. He thought it was a serious matter, but I don't. 1 know the "he" in the affair, and he is...

Coal in Ashford District. RICH LIME DEPOSITS ALSO FOUND. Railway Extension from Inverell will Enrich State Wealth by Thousands of Pounds. Mention was made in the "Voice of the North" last week of the occurrence of coal in the Ash ford district, a few miles to the north of Inverell. As far back as 1896 a mineral lease was ac- quired at Ashford, with a view to de- veloping the coal seam there. Experts have proved by examination that the seam is a continuation of the Greta coal, and that it possesses qualities equal to the best in the State. The Silverspur Mine, Texas, Queens- land, which is just across the border from Ashford, carried out some develop- ment work during recent years, and ex- pended about £4000 towards proving whether the outcrop was of any per- manency. Their investigations were en- tirely satisfactory, and they secured about 1500 tons of excellent coal in addition to seme 700 tons of coke. The latter was carted to the mine furnaces, and used there, giving entirely sat...
