Workmen's Compensation. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 March 1914
Workmen's Compensa tion. Owing to' the fact that certain insurance companies have been liter ally deluging the general public with circulars, drawing attention to the liability oE imployers to insure their servants under the Workmen's Com pensation Act, and offering to accept premiums, an uncomfortable feeling is abroad that the State Insurance Office which is to be will be fore stalled in its operations (says the " Ago"). Some persons, in fact, are not quite sure whether there is to be, a State Insurance Office, and are con templating the necessity of paying their premiums into private com panies. Under the act, it is as well to remind them, they are to have the option of insuring with the State or such private companies as are ap proved by the Governor in Council, and as the Governor in Council has not yet approved of any private insurance companies for the purposes of the act, it seems somewhat early for circularising methods to be adopted. The ' Governor in Colincil has as yet g...

REUNION OF CHURCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 March 1914
REUNION OF CHURCHES. Archbishop Olarke, when inter viewed on Saturday with regard to the international developments whioh hare followed the reoent successful Melbourne congress on the reunion of churches, made an interesting state ment. Dr Olarke said the question of reunion was of such urgent and pressing necessity that throughout .ohristendom in recent years the desire vras to see it brought about. "The difficulties in the way of such a re union as is contemplated," he con tinued, "are many and great, because of the position of the Christian church, due to its unherited traditions of or ganisation. Our forefathers fought . with a keenness and bitterness almost tin known In our own generation for forms of organisation and artioles of faith. A gentler spirit is spreading throughout the world, and it is out of tbiB new atmosphere that we must expect any effective| reunion to arise. Absolute unity is only a dream, and the most that can be aimed at is a unity whioh admits of diversity ...

Exodus of Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 March 1914
Exodus of Farmers. ! It is not only from parts o£ the Goulburn Valley that young farmers are emigrating' to the other States, uor is it only from Victoria that they are going. Five large blocks of land in Queensland that were balloted tor last week at Goondiwindi attracted altogether 830, applications, of which a great numbe\ oame from Viotoria, Now South Wales and South Aus tralia. Apparently distance enhanced the desirability of tbis land, for the terms were not comparable with those op which land can be secured in Victoria. A deposit of £175 had to be lodged by each applicant, and if he happened to be anions five winners and not one of' the 825 losers he secured, not freehold, but a lease for 28 years, with the right of renewal, and was obliged to pay substantial survey fees as well as his annual rent. The Minister of Lands, Mr Lawson, remarked when informed of this ballot that-it-was well to-know that the Queensland Minister of . Lands was just now touring Viotoria with a party ...
CEREAL GROWING; CHANGE OF SEED. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 March 1914
CEREAL GROWING; CHANGE OF SEED. A Oeiiet commonly held among cereal growers is that change of seed is more or less necessary every two or three years. It would appear, how ever, that belief is founded on opinion rather than on well-ascertained fact. in Canada decided results have been obtained at tho Ontario Agricultural College. A number of varieties of i oat3, barley, wheat arid potatoes have ? been grown in the experimental (grounds from 18 to 24 years without | a ohange of seed from outside sources. In practically all cases the yields per I aore in recent years have been greater ' than those during the earlier part of the experiment, Taking an average, it is found that the yields have ' in creased to a marked degree. The soil on which these varieties have been grown has changed but littlri in fertility during the period under re view, It therefore seems possible to gftrtr the same varieties for a considerable length of time without ohange of seed, providing care is taken in the ...
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. PHOSPHATES IN AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 March 1914
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. PHOSPHATES IN AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURE. (From "Journal of Agriculture.") Practical experience and numerous experiments have' clearly demon strated the benefit resulting from the use of phosphates on Australian, noils. Among the many advantages accruing from their use may be mentioned 1. They supply an essential mineral plant food which is most likely to be lacking in ordinary soils. Any soil deficiency in this ingredient leads to starved crops and starved grass, -and the stock grazing on phosphate starved grass cannot remain profitable to their owners. 2. The soluble phosphates have a most stimulating influence on the development of the young root system. 'This is apparent from the remarkable start given to young wheat crops when superliosphate is drilled in'with the seed. This early start does lhuch to secure the wheat plant against drought. ' 3. The feeding value of- pastures manured with phosphates is greatly increased. A striking illustration of this may now bo...
THE OVAL QUESTION. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 March 1914
THE OVAL QUESTION. (TO THE EDITOR.) Sir,-In regard to the oval question, which has come before the ratepayers chiefly through the medium o£ your valuable columns, I feel very partial to the suggestion of your contributor, ''Riverside," namely, that a vote of the ratepayers be taken ; and prior to this, that the mayor call a public meeting so that ratepayers may hear the claims of the various sites recom mended for the new sports ground as put forward by the councillors or any of the ratepayers ~who may care to voice their views. , At the same time, I may remark, as a "Native," your contributor "Riverside" (according to the report of the last meeting) seems somewhat out in his calculations, when the states the' A.N.A. favors the "Show Grounds". The society has long foreseen that the "Island" and ajacent surroundings will eventually become the pride of Clunes, whether it is availed of now as a sports ground or not. The impression I gather from tho members privately give me the opinion...

CORRESPONDENCE BOROUGH COMMON! (to TIIB JJDITOIt). Sir,-In looking1 ovor the balance ! sheet of the Common Managers one I would, at fir.it glance, consider the I common well,.managed ; but when wo j consider the state of the common and j the way the manager's are running it, j eyeryone who. liris stoi'k on it must j admit that it is disgracefully carried out, that is from a commoner's point of view.

FEDERAL ISSUES. COST OF COMMONWEALTH DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 March 1914
FEDERAL HSUtS. COST OF COMMONWEALTH DEFENCE. " When a nation takes time by the forelock and begins to get itself ready for war, the chiefs of the general staffs in other parts of the world turn that page in their diaries down, and that par i ticular nation is not troubled much." So said Genpral Sir Ian Hamilton, when addressins; th« officers of the Victorian Military District and their guests on Mon day evening. No doubt, the General was right; the wolf is always nioro ready to face the. lamb than, the lion. More than ' chat, the pxperienoes of Great Britain in South Africa, and j Russia in its struggle with Japan,' km the ooroparan j tively few can do in b»tt!«. when j they are soldiers to tti« b;ick-j bone. There is, however, another side to the question, one which was stressed by Senator Millen on : Monday, and by Mr Cook 01 Tuesday.

This should give anyone with " brains" to understand that "scorohing" was injplied. The speed, together with the " Pip, Pip," is enough to frighten any horEe. In reply to " Pip, Pip," 1 have neither time nor. inclination to look up " Punch's"" idetl' of horses' being a nuisance to motorists.

TREATMENT OF MEASLES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 March 1914
TREATMENT OF MEASLES. Have the little patient placed in a large-sized room where there' will be no exposure to draught. In summer, during the warm portion of the day, the windows inr.y be left open, while in winter the temperature of the room s'io;:'d be k-pt even and the room lie well Ventilated. Do not allow the patient to become uncovered. Keep children in bed ten to fifteen days after the appearance of the erup tion, allowing them first to go out i twenty to twenty-five days after its appearance. The child's mouth should be washed with an antiseptic solution. Porridges, milk, and occa ( sionally an egg will be sufficient as a diet. As soon as desquamation sets in rub the child with borated vaseline and give one or two baths containing j' borax. Medical treatment is purely symptomatic.
FAINTING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 March 1914
FAINTING. Fainting proceeds from different causes, the most common being: a dis turbance of the circulation of the blood in the brain. For an ordinary fainting fit lay the' patient flat. Great harm has often resulted from the trcatmenl by ignorant people in trying- to make the patient sit up, or propping up the head on pillows. To send the blood back from the heart to the brain, the flat .posture is absolutely necessary. Let the patient lie so that the feet are higher than - the; head, throw th? clothes about the chest and throat open, sponge the face with cold water, and fi-ive some cold water to drink.

HEALTH IN THE HOME. BYE-STRAIN. Eye-strain is one of the most fruit ful sources of nervous headache, ner vous prostration, neuralgia, and othei nervous derangements. Three-fourths of the cases of headache which are so common are readily relieved by the oculist, being caused by eye-strain. Eye-strain may be caused by near sightedness, far-sightedness, or some other defect in the refraction, accom modation, or convergence of the eyes an purely mjcnanical difficulties These may ail be relieved by suitable glasses m-.iQc after the prescription ol a skilled oculist.
A BRAVE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 20 March 1914
A BRAVE MAN. The history of the Du Ponts of Delaware, founders of the powder busi ness in America, lives and breathes in the very air of high, firm courage. Alexis I. du Pont was killed in the big explosion in 1837 at the Brandy wine works, and La Motte du Pont was blown to death at the Rcpauno works in 1884. Foilowing a compara tively recent explosion at the Hagley Mills on the Brandywine, Victor du Pont 3rd is credited with carrying a flaming gunny-sack out of the danger zone. This is the most recent instance of the Du Pont family characteristic. Fifty years ago Alexis I. du Pont, son of Eleuthere Irenee du Pont de Nemours, whose natural inclinations for scientific pursuits were responsible for the foundation of the parent plant' on the Brandywine, was in one of the mixing-houses, trying to shift a heavy wooden box. In sliding across the , floor the box generated a spark, and j in an instant the room was ablaze. | As it .was Saturday, only a few: pounds of . powder^ remained in th...
