A Remarkable Case. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 2 February 1917
. A-Remarkable Case. The following letter contains an interesting story: From Mrs. F. Alexander, 488 Parra matta-road, Petersham, Sydney, N.S.W. "About fourteen years ago my son was suffering from Briglit's disease and was taken to t!je hospital where he remained for eight weeks, -when, as he became worse than when he went in, he asked me to take him home. I did so, and whilst at home, he found a pamphlet about Warner's Safe Cure, and decided to try it. I got him a bottle and he commenced to take it. He was passing blood in his urine and his urine was full of albumen and sugar. The doctors said that he had a stone in the kid neys and that that was the cause of the bleeding. However, he subse quently had X-ray treatment, and it was found that there was no stone there at all. I give Warner's Safe Cure the sole credit of effecting his cure. He has never suffered from the disease since and is now a thor oughly strong, healthy man. About a year ago I was suffering from a floating kidney,...

DAIRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 2 February 1917
CAIRY NOTES. The way to secure a good dairy nerd is to breed it and produce it on the farm rather than to depend upon purchases every season. Keep the milking-shed dry and clean, "fis a serious affair when old Bossy slips on a wet floor and strains her milk. In dirty milk there is often a lot of organisms known as digestive bac teria, which have the power of digest ing or dissolving the casein of milk. As the casein is the milk constituent .vhieh is coagulated by rennet to form ..tie curd in clieesemaking, these or ganisms lessen the cueese yield, as the dissolved casein passes on in the .vlicy. The casein in coagulating takes in the milk fat, and the less jasetn milk contains the more fat will be lost in the whey. The albu men of milk, which Is not affected by -cnnet, is always present in the whey. Dairy products are the farm's most ?perishable products, and the farmer .vho is going into dairying must And a ready and quick market for his 3ommodities before he can safely en ter upon...

Then as 1 was rushing up the stops at the sta tion a fellow trod on my umbrella and broke the bottom off, and I lost my train talking to him; and then " but here a watering-cart came quick ly round the eoi'ner and drenched the dismal stranger from knee down wards. He gazed with a sickly smile, and remarked: "There, what did 1 tell you?" "Better go home and dry yourself," remarked the sympathetic policeman. "So I had; but, mind you, I don't care a ha'p'orth what's occurred up to now. What makes me all on the shako is what the dickens is going to happen next!"

THEY HAVE GOT IT! Early Ambitions Attained.

But I was never able to go to one myself, and, though 1 went through Cambridge aiid did some teaching, various tilings into which I need not go further here, led nie to take up the Bar as a profession, and I was 'called' at the lilner Temple In November, 1890. I had then though as much yearning after my early desire as ever, in one way ?iven up all hopes or expectations of aver being at til' head of one of the great public schools of England, of course. Nothing could possibly have ?eemed more improbable at that tiiiie. Vet whilst I was still In chambers ttt j Lincoln's Inn, the governors of Mill Hill School offered me the vacant post of headmaster therei I had never sought the position, and Had . never for a moment even imSg...

A Hew Fodder. WILL IT CHECK ST. JOHN'S WORT? THERE is successfully established in the back yard of the Yackandandah ''Times'' office a grass new to Victoria, and one which promises to be successful on the poorer land of the district. It is called "Napier's Fodder or Elephant Grass." In Rhodesia it is being adopted as the mainstay of the grazier, and the South African Agricultural Department reports on- it as "a fodder of great value which resists both frost and drought." Once established it is a permanent pasture. Mr Harrison, of N.S.W., from whom the seed was obtained, states that he cut 27 tons of green fodder to the acre, and that the grass is more succulent and nourish ing than maize. If the grass yields any. thing like what ia claimed for it, w.e prophesy great things for it, as it is growing to perfection on common and somewhat poor clay land. Without irri gation it maintains a rich dark green color through the hot weather, and the stems of the Btools are over half an inch in ...
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME. How British Imperialism Concerns Us. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 2 February 1917
AUSTRAL?A PLAYS THE GAME. How British Imperialism Concerns Us. Imperialism ia a national sense of 1 necessity for room to expand. In indent times It led tile Romans to spread from the seven hills on the Tiber all over the known world. Eng lish imperialism is also, comparatively speaking, an old growth. England was always too small for the tremen dous spirit of enterprise and endeavor contained in it, the striving of the ohi Norse spirit to go forth and conquer. Hundreds of years ago the English fought in France to possess France. When they found France unconquer able they turned their energies to wards the incorporation of Scotland and Ireland. That accomplished, they fixed their eyes seawards. Only some of the far-off parts of the world were then in the possession of other na tions, most of them were unattached. J Subsequently tllero Was much discov ery oil the part of England and much fighting, and the Nineteenth Century I witnessed the grand triumph of her j Imperialism, a world-...

Nasty. Miss Richly,, who had been enter taining a few feminine friends (all more or less envious of their hostess), was exhibiting a fine collection of old coins. "This," she remarked, "is the gem of the collection. It is a very valu able gold coin, and was issued at the time of the Battle of Waterloo." "Indeed!" said one of the "friends" sweetly. "I wonder that you weren't tempted to spend it when it was nice and new."
