Why You Hide Your Head in Bed. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 10 April 1914
Why You Htde Your Head in Bed. &lt;Av Win. "LEE HOWAllD, M.D.) Children and often adults will, upon getting into bed, duck tlieir heads under the coverings and re main quiet for some time. This is not a form of play nor a sign of fear. U is instinctive In man-a trait left us from tho timo our ancestors lived In their treo beds. The ourang-outang of Bor neo and the gorilla of Africa to day do the same tiling' when thev curl up to sleep. They have a pile upon which they ["lace their heads, regardless of tho other parts of their bodies. Sometimes they reach up and pull down the thick-leaved branches, 'it is not done for warmth, but probably with tho ostrich-like idea that the head oncc covered so they cannot see they believe their enemies are also kept from seeing tho sleeping forms.

Monuments to Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 10 April 1914
Monuments to Potatoes. ?,, There are monuments to human be ings, to animals; and, in one case known to the writer, to a lifeboat, but it 1ms been reserved to .-Ger many to rear monuments to the potato. At Offonberg, in Germany.'- a;pri vate donor has erected a really beautiful monument in honoor of tho potato. Tho ? upper part is a statue of Sir Francis Brake, who is alleged to have introduced the plant into IDurope. This, and the pedestal also, is draped with gar lands o&lt;" the potato plant, with full grovvii tubers. - On one side of the j edeolal is Drake's nameon an other the name of the donor is given. Nor is this the only German'town having a monument to the glorifica tion of the potato. The town of Murz has a similar statue to Drake and the , potato, and in severaL of the small towns of the . Empire there are similar monuments. The funny, thing about these sta tues to Drake in association - witli the introductionof the potato/is that Drake had.no more to do wifcji th...
To Disinfect a Cowshed. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 17 April 1914
To Disinfect a Cowshed. It is always good practice where n contagious disease of any kind has (faineil acw*«s to tho herd to dis infect the entire stable. In fact, this is often imperative if it iS de sired to stamp out the disease. Disinfection is absolutely neces»«ry j where tul.Ksrculosis has gained ac-1 cess to the herd. Bulletin 12." of j the Pennsylvania State College of Agriculture recently published gives « plan for disinfecting the stable which is valuable for this as well as for some other diseases : 1- Hemovc all manure, litt«*, loose dirt, loose, rotten boards and scrape the floor cImui. 2. Sweep the ceilings and walls free from cobwebs, dust and dirt. Wash the feed boxes, inangets, hails and partitions With hot water containing enough- lye or washing powder tcTcut the dirt. Scrub all these objects vigorously with a stiff brush. Spray thp "walls, ceilings and floors with bichloride of mercury solution (1,100) or a 5 per cent, carbolic acid solution (not crude"). ;,.Vlush...
THE FARM. Burrless Trefoil. A FLANT OF GREAT VALUE TO GRAZIERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 17 April 1914
Burrless Trefoil. A FLA NT OK GREAT VALUE TO GRAZIERS. Two species of plants known jn common English ns Nfedicks, or more scientifically, as belonging to the gem's Mcdicago, should appeal to Australian graziers (snys an ar ticle in "Dalgety's Review"). The name of the plant is said to be de rived from the word "Modike," the name cpven by the Grecian scientist, Pioerides to a grass obtained by hini from Media. The term, how ever, convoys but. little to the average Australian ; but when he is informed that lucerne is one of its species-that plant being known bo tanically as Med ic a go saliva-that trifolinm, or clover, is another, and that there are about forty other useful fodder plants bearing- the same generic title, he will at once grant that the world of agriculture owes "a very large debt indeed to the jtonus Medicago. None of these forty odd species.' are Australian na tives, but a number of them have been introduced-either purposely or fortuitously-into the .continent, where t...

UNIMPROVED VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 17 April 1914
DN1HPR0YED VALEE, Sir In looking over your repor' of last Kowree Council meeting I noticed a memo from the Rating Re form League dealing with that much needed reform, rating on the unim proved value In dealing with that correspondence the statements made by the President (Cr ' Phillip) and Or Hoare cannot be lightly passed over. The subject is an all important ono and the attention of all rateoayors should be focussed upon it. . The report reads : - " The President said he was not in favor of rating on the unimproved value They had a good guide to the value in the market value but uo one on earth could fix the unimproved value" I can quite understand the President, as an individual being opposed to the unimproved system, but in his posi tion as a ratepayers' representative he has not a leg to stand.upon. As the price of land is subject to booms and depressions the market yalue is j anything but a good basis for rating purposes. Valuers, as a rule, pav little heed to the market,, bas...
