THE SKUNK [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 March 1914

THE SKUNK One natural result of the recent boom in furs (says "The Westminster Gazette") is an attempt to breed fur bearing animals in England. In this .connection a large consignment of North American skunks has lately ar rived, some of which will shortly be established by Mr Mervyn Chute in a large hillside enclosure on his estate in Northumberland. Despite a malodor ous reputation, the skunk seems a dainty feeder, subsisting ehie/ly on in sects, and it is considered doubtful whether sufficient food of the correct kind can be procured. Moreover, the value of the fur produced may be nf fected by our milder climate. ",p" from the fur, the terrible fetid fluid for which this animal is notorious is valu able medicinally, being prescribed f asthma; though an asthmatic clergy man, who took a bottle"of it into tb pulpit to inhale when his breath f-"" troublesome, found that he had reliev ed his malady, but dispersed the con gfUKation.

Prospector's Death. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 March 1914

Prospector's Death. The announcement of tlip sad death from thirst in the Western Australian bush last week of J. Kerguelen Robinson, mining pros pector, must have come as a shock to many Victorians. Robinson was an advepturous character, and had played an exciting part in many exploring expeditions before he started on his last trip in the "West. He was the son of Captain Robinson, master of a Tasmanian whaler, ' and was born on board ship close to the Kerguelen Islands-hence his second Christian name. He was a mining prospector nearly all iiis. life, the romance and uncertainty of the work appealing to his nature. Writing to a friend in Melbourne a few months age from Lawlers, hn said" I am leaving for the interior with camels, and will not be back until about the fiddle of January, and eyep then do not expect to oome hero. ... I shall either strike it or leave my bones on the mulga. If I- suoceed, it will be due to you. I am going to unex plored country, and the blaoks are bad. B...

Tbe following letter from Mrs. Tho mas Brown, of Healesville Vic., will prove interesting to many of our readers: "Some time ago I suffered from a severe attack of kidney complaint. The first symptoms were great weak ness ;<nd emaciation -with terrible pain till over my .body, especially across my back. My whole body was racked with pain and I ocruld get but little ease day or night. Medicines were prescribed for mo, but failed to do me any good. I cared very little what became of me, I was so weak and miserable. I had nearly given up all hope -when a frlemf advised me to try Warhnr'e Safe Cure.

HEALTH OF THE CHILD LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND (By Mrs. J. A. Hobaon In "Dally News and Leader.") There are many important things to bo 'done in England before sho can vindicate her claim to bo a pattern of civilisation. About three of these things public opinion has been aroused, and wo aro promised small holdings, bettor housing, and higher wages. But if wo aro to reap the full benefit of thoso reforms there la a fourth no less important question which is just beginning to attract attention. What is the character of the homes In which the majority of the nation's children aro bolng dragged up to-day? For both health and illness, like charity, begin at home. The difficul ties, although largely economic, are not entirely so. The medical officer of Islington says in a recent report: "There are far too many men who earn good wages living in homes that are most unsatisfactory In every way," and declares the ignorance of the jyorking man's wlfo to bo-"something appalling"; that she is "wit...

"FLAPPER" AT THE DANCE [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 March 1914

"FLAPPER" AT THE DANCE (By Duncan Swann In " The Dally MaiL") It was her long mauve legs and tho bow to match In her hair that first at tracted mo aa I leant against the ball room wall Idly watching the gyrations of tho dancers. Sho was waltzing with a youth from Eton at the time, of the Bamo immature ago as herself, and wore a loolc of profound boredom that I attributed partly to the unskilled movements ot her partner, partly to the fact that tho occasion was that anoma lous function, a Christmas party, at which all ages from 12 to 70 are repre sented and the young married women are in unfair request. Just as the band struck up the next Item I crossed to where she was wrin kling her pretty, forehead over tho hieroglyphics on her programme. "Are you engaged for this?" I asked, with tho unconscious patronage of the forties towards tho teens. "I don't think wo've been introduced," she replied with hauteur, tossing a mass of fair hair out of her eyes.

CORRESPONDENCE. j MOTOR CYCLES AND HORSE3. (TO TIIE EDITOR). Sir,-A complaint was recently made in your columns concerning the dog nuisance in this town. I quite agree with "Motor Cyclist"^ in this matter. It is a common thing to see dogs chasing cyclists even in the principal streets, and I think that if the inspector attended to his duties more thoroughly, there would not bo so many of these stray dogs about the streets. If the Borough Council wore to see that its bylaws were carried out, instead of spending its time with such dreams as "electric-lighting, etc," it would do more good. A correspondent answering " Motor Cyclist's " letter mentioned having seen two people riding about on a motor.cycle and frightening horses. In. larger towns it is quite common to see two people on a motor-cyclo, and if your correspondent would kindly ex plain how it is that two people on a motor cycle would frighten a horse more, than one cyclist would, he is possessed of more brains than I give him ...

THE OVAL QUESTION. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 March 1914

THE OVAL QUESTION. (TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-There are several important matters before our civic fathers at present, .which naturally the whole of the ratepayers of the Borough ot Clunes are deeply interested in, or at least should be. There is the electric lighting question, the asphalting of the footpath to the station, improve ment to the baths, and erection ot monuments to commemorate important j historic events, etc. As a ratepayer . and business man I would like to make a few remarks on the matter that apparently will be dealt with at an early date, viz., " The new sports arena for Clunes." The oval has proved futile in serving the require ments, chiefly, it would seem, on account of its out-of-the-way locality; therefore I take it the most central position should be obtained provided suitable conditions are secured at a moderate cost. Oarnival advocates and sport providers complain of the ' poor patronage accorded by the local public, and residents, it is said, object to po to th...
