A Preventive of Grimy Hands. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914

A Preventive of Grimy Hands. A thorough scrubbing will not remo\ve the dirt that seem to work right into the skin on the hands when handling some makes of electric wires or working about inachincs that are covered with oil - and dirt. A correspondent of Elec tric?al lte\ iew uses a coating thoroughly rublbed on the hands be fore starting to work which pre lents the grime from entering the pcres of the skin. The preventive t consists of 4oz. of grain alcohol, 3oz. of glycerine and 3oz. of water. The mixture quickly dries on the skin, and after work a washing with soap and water will quickly remove all dirt. Woen cleaning knivea damp them Ibefore rubbing on the boards; this will produce a better polish. and they will elela much qiiclker.

CYCLING. AUSTRALIAN RIDERS IN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914

CYCLING. *--- - - AUSTRALIAN RIDERS IN PARIS. As most people know, five riders from Australia, I. R. Munro, G. W. Bell, C. A. Piercey, Don. Kirkham, and C. Snell went to prove their worth in Paris in the road-racing season. The riders had a successful and enjoyable trip as far as Fremantle, Western Aus tralia, when Don Kirkham's ankle was sprained, but it soon mended, and when Port Said was reached he was in the best of health. The trip was both enjoyable and profitable, as they covered expenses by winning athletic competitions on board. On arriving at Toulon, the principal naval base of the French Navy in the Mediterranean, they journeyed by rail to Paris. They arrived in Paris amidst snow and ice, the worst winter ever experienced in Paris for six years. The Gladiator Co. had been informed of their presence, and nine hours after their arrival they were engaged to ride on the road for six months. This firm had practically given up racing in Paris, but had been advised by the Dunlop...

KINDNESS PAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 March 1914

KINDNESS PAYS. A writer says of the cow that "she is a mother once a year and, like all mothers, she requires especial care at the time cf parturition." It seems as if the writer had dis missed this question of motherhood in the cow too quickly, limiting it, as he did, to the time of parturition. The function of motherhood extends for months, as long as the cow is giving milk, and it is a wise, far seeing policy that discerns the scoge and bearing of this continuinz func tion, and so ministers to the cow as to conduce to the great st Irotfit of the owner. There are a great many stupid, hl'-bliri.t dotish men kepin; cows. A wise old fiarmer, spea'-ing co a certdin man in his cmloy, once said: "I don't know what it is about the man, but he certainly can coax more milk out of the cows he has in charge than any man I ever saw. He is very quiet and gentlo with the cows. He is all the time petting them. and looking after tieir comfort. I have seen him t '-e a brush and go o-ver his ten c ...

A WEED ERADICATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 March 1914

A WEED ERADICATOR. One of the greatest thorns in the side of farmers is the noxious weed curse. Chief among the pests is thei blackberry and Californian thistle. The Government recognising the boon it would be if a cheap specific was placed upon the market, have otffcred substantial bonuses to the inventor of any system that would successful ly eradicate these pests. Naturally the Agricultural Department have stressed the fact that a cure must be permanent. Various specifics and methods have been tried and found wanting. Under the direction of the Agricultural Department a prepara tion known as Long's Noxious Weed Destroy er has been put to a test at Parnell, near Auckland, and promises particularly well. A piece of land, which is completely overrun with blackberry has been treated under the direction of the Agricultural De partment. It is only a monthi or so since the weedkiller was applied, but judging by the several roots removed from the patch the destroyer has done its work wel...

THE FARM. FIXING UP RUN-OUT PASTURES. (E. L. Vincent, in the "Pacific Daily Review.") [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 March 1914

THE FARM. FIiXING UP RUN-OTJT PARTURES. (E. L. Vincent, in the "Paciitc Daily Review.") If the dairy farmers of this coun try were to be told that they might be making from one-third to one half more money out of their busi ness every year of their lives than they are now, they would jump to find out how it might be done. I am going to make that state ment and then prove it. The pastures of this country to-day if in good condition would support at least one-third more cows than they do at present, and in many in stances the difference might safely be placed at one half more. This is,'I am aware, a startling assertion. To think that we are going on year after year, keeping not more than half or two-thirds the stock we might and ought, is a most surprising thing. It does not speak very well for our ability as dairymen. The fact of it is, we have not paid much attention to our pastures any was. After we have decided what land we will give to this purpose we fence it off and there it st...

Old Brunswick and the New. To-the Leader; Sir,-As an old resident of Bruns wick, who has seen it rise from a farm ing district to a thriving city, and no ticing the old homes one by one being removed, I thought it might be to the interest of our young rising generation to know that the cottage that stands on the north side of Wesleyan Church property, Sydney road, and which is now being built on by shops, was the home of the late Mr. Thomas Wilkin son, M.L.A., who was identified with the earliest history of Brunswick, and during his life took the greatest inter est in all that was helpful to the place in which he resided. The cottage was built by him, at the end of 1852, andl he resided in it until his death in1881. Previous to this cottage being built he had erected a building on the same spot between 1840 and 1813, andl used it as a residence for himself and fam ily. In the year 1842 he left for Port land. and let the cottage and several acres of land on an improving lease by his ...

Your Eyes are Like a Japs. WHY THEY LOOK DIFFERENT. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 20 March 1914

Your Eyes are Like a Japs. - +-------- WHY THEY LOOK UIFF'ERENT. We call the Japan:ese "almond eyed" and the Chinese '"iit-eved,'t and most of us are apt to suppos?e that their eyes are of entirely dif ferent shape from our own. But such is not the case. The eyes of all the races are practically alike in shape. their difierence in appear ance being due solely to a difer ence in the opening of the lids. IlAmong the Catucasians \ihen the eyelids are drawn open the outer Sand inner ends of the lids form a straight, horizontal line. The lids open wide without any special ef fort, presenting the effect of the full eye. Among the (Chinese and other Mongolians the lids do not open so far, and on this account they are often spoken of as "sit-eyed." Al so the line fromn the inner to the outer corner of their eres is not perfectlly hori'onlal, the ouiter end being slightly higher than the in ner corner, thus giving the effect of what is termed the almond eye. In the Caucasian eye the end of t...
