The Standard.. PUBLISHED BI-WEEKLY. Beneath tho rule of men entirely just the pon is mightier than the sword. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1314. Alburton shire councillors who yes terday paid a visit of inspection to " Ciroonmount," ostensibly to settle the dilliculty that has arisen in regard to « rotid, found themselves up against a knotty problem. " Wo, are no wiser than when wo went out," romarked a councillor yesterday. If landholders insist on a road, against which ono holds out in opposition, it may be a matter for the Public Works depart ment to dccide. The councillors pres ent were Crs. Faliey, Barlow, Barry, McUailiard, Christensen and Nightin gale, and tliey were accompanied by the shire engineer, Mr lUirston. At the close of the business portion of Wednesday night's meeting of the Yarram riile club, Mr Anderson, who has been captain for several years, was made the recipient of a handsome hot water kettle. The vice-captain, M r W. l)yer, made the presentation on behalf of tin; me...

IVSelbourne Letter. (KltOSI OUlt OWN CUKUKM'ON'DKNT.) TUAN'SC'UNTINKNTAI. KAIMVA Y TKOUIU.KS. It is being gossiped in jiolitic:il cir cles that members of tin! Federal Cab inet are liy 110 1110:1ns of one mind re garding the notion taken in connection with llio Port Augusta to Kalgoorlie railway. When it was known that till' John Forrest had come over hur riedly from West Australia increased force was given to that gossip. Said tho would-be knowing ones, "A Min ister does not journey two thousand miles in such iv hurry unless there is something serious on the board." It has, of course, not, boon possible to get the l'riino Minister or any of his col leagues to make any admission con cerning the matter. All the same there is reason to believe that the wholo matter has been debuted very warmly in Cabinet. KSTAHI.ISII ADIlOl'l.AXKS.

Sale District. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 February 1914
Sale District. (ritOM OUR OWN" rOHHKSI'OXDKXT). Bartlett's motor garage is still adding to its resources, and the latest addition is a bus capable of seating 20 passen gers, and its first run was to the llose dale races with a full complement of passengers. One who was there says the bus mounted the big cutting com paratively easy, and the trip was very enjoyable. I understand trips are to be made to Prospect lieach during the summer mouths, return faro ;js. If such is the case the venture should be highly successful, as it would bo well patronised, giving people a long day on ihe shore of the briny, which resort is getting more popular every year. A large shark, says the " Mercury," caused terror to a couple of batlieis recently at Prospect. Tho writer knows of sharks being plentiful at times ou that beach, and bathers cannot be too care ful. A groat exodus of peeple from Halo takes place to that resort on a Saturday evening and Sunday morning during the warm weather of summer. The...

CHIEF CAUSE OF SCOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 February 1914
CHIEF CAUSE OF SCOURS. Dirt is the chief cause ot call scours, as filthy, poorly lighted and badly-ventilated quarters harbor the disease germs in great numbers. Sometimes calf scours occurs in con tagious form, and then only prompt measures will prevent serious losses. At the College of Agriculture of tho University of Wisconsin, special pre cautions are taken against scours. Not only nre the calves kept in well lighted and otherwise sanitary quar ters, but they are fed regularly until four weeks old on two to six pounds of their mother's milk three times daily. Care is taken to have the tmperature of the milk as near that of freshly-drawn milk as possible, and to keep the feeding paii clean. In spite of precautions (states Pro fessor G. C. Humphrey) we now and then have cases of scours among our calves. For the past two years we have successfully treated such cases as follows:—As soon as symptoms appear, two to four tablespuonfuls of castor oil are mixed with one-lialf pint of mil...
VIRTUE OF RIPE APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 February 1914
VIRTUE OF RIPE APPLES. 1 he old idea, that apples were the favorite fruit of the gods is a plaus ible theory. The freahness of youth was over possessed by those who made apples their principal diet. Cer tain it is that there is no food so val uable. Apples nourish the brain and spinal cord. They contain phosphor us, sugar. albumen. »;um, malic acid. Kalic acid, vegetable fibre, and water. 1 hey cure kouI and rheumatic disor ders, and exercise a benelicial influ ence on the liver and stomach Uipe apples and 'bread as a diet will do more to restore health than drugs.

The Heart of a Girl. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XIV.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 27 February 1914
The Heart of a Giri. By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Mouey-Lender," "12a QulKry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) OH A PTER XIV.—Continued. Thome drove liis tcetli Intio his ne ther lip. This woman who shrank from his touch was his wife. Her hor ror at this moment was ot the pro phetic, anticipatory kind. The obliga tions ot marriage, what marriage meant, had thrust themselves upon her. She was tempted suddenly to fling open Ihe door, throw herself out, nnd let the traffic crush out her life. But the wild impulse was caught up an instant later by a realisation of its selfishness; the misery and grief, and possibly death, such an act would in liict on others. She must go through with it somehow. "It's a bit early to begin showing otT, isn't it?" The words had been stung out, of Thome. " 'Don't touch me!' I've done all 1 have done for you and yours, and I suppose you take it for granted 1 shall go on in the same way in the future—but I mustn't touch you! What do you thin...
