MEDICAL MEMS. Bone and Strength. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 April 1912

MEDICAL MEMS. Bone and Strength. The wonderful power of bone struct ure has been tested scientifically to show how a bone bears strain. A very small bone will hold thirty-three pounds in suspension without break ing, while a piece of the best oak of the same thickness will hold only twenty-two ? pounds. The' - bone is.: therefore half as strong again as the solid oak, thus showing that nature is economical in the weight given | to bones, making them hollow; and at the same time stronger than if they were solid and heavier. This principle has heen recognised in me chanics, engineers using hollow steel tubes instead of solid to meet great I strain. j

RAIN MAKING. Some Suggestive American Experiments. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 April 1912

RAIN MAKING. Some Suggestive American Experiments. The fact that great battles have al most invariably been accompanied, or followed, by heavy rains, has induced experiment in different parts of the world to discover first whether the discharge of explosives would cause rain; secondly, under what atmo 'spheric conditions, and, thirdly, at what cost, or how far economically possible. These experiments have ' been more or less successful in bring- 1 ing rain, but the great difficulty lay in the fact that the rain could not be ' depended upon to fall just where it j was wanted. Individual farmers do not willingly spend money in dyna mite to give their neighbors a shower; . and if a government or a municipality I were to undertake the business, it : would often be found that there were . landowners who did not happen to want rain at that precise juncture, or . who at least would not be willing to pay their share of the cost of bring- 1 ing Jupiter Pluvius to his knees. I It' would be po...

"THAT LETTER!" [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 April 1912

'THAT LETTER!' By Pauline Corri. I There are few people who do not ' like receiving letters, while those who care to write them are in a sad minor ity. We read a letter penned by a dear hand, and under its influence make a resolve to answer it speedily. . Sometimes the resolve never ma terialises, or at least it is postponed j until the sympathetic feeling induced ' by the receipt of the other has waned, with the result that the reply is cold and matter-of-fact, a woeful surprise 10 me one wiiu may ue waiuug iwr it with longing heart. But at least the letter is answered, and reproach cannot haunt the mem ory, as might be the case otherwise. In this age we are too careless of the feelings of those who care for us, and who, by reason of our thought lessness, may be stung beyond mea sure. We go on our way putting aside the reminder occasionally given by confidence, and after a while may receive word of the death of one whose missive we have neglected. Perhaps one who has been ailing fo...

The news editor, without taking his ? eyes from the manuscript before him, reached out a tobacco-stained1; fore finger and rang a staccato summons oil his beil. 'Send Mr. Gray in,' was liis curt command to tlie boy who answered, then he threw the article he had been reading into a basket and lit a cigarette. The door opened, and Stewart Gray entered.* He was one of the junior reporters, quite an ordinary young man, good looking in the sense that he was not ugly, with a clean-shaven and open face of the type which is generally termed interesting. ?'You asked for me, sir,' he said, coming to a halt before the. paper littered table. 'Yes, Gray,' replied the editor with a trace of irritation in his voice. 'I find I shall want Humphreys in Lon don to-day, so you will have to go to Liverpool in his place. If you leave here in half an hour's time you can catch the 10.30 from Euston, which . should give ample time the other end. ' ''Call ...

Thb determination of the Government to spend upwards of £1,000,000 in the improvement of main roads throngbout Victoria is hailed in this part of Gippsland with lively satis faction. Forty years ago, in the North riding of this Shire, costly works, absolutely necessary to keep open communication, were executed by the Government of the day. These consisted principally 'of sidling roads round the mountains between here and Grant, culverts, bridges, etc. At that time this mountainous district was unattatched, did not form a part of any municipality, and was subse quently offered for inclusion to differ ent adjoining shires, , but without avail, nntil accepted by the Avonshire on a three to one endowment, based on the rate revenue derived from it. Although this arrangement has not been literally carried out. Govern, ment has yearly made grants to assist in keeping roads open, and road works generally in a state of fairly good repair. To a certain extent the results have been of benefit ...

Make Your District Known. Concerning some parts of the dis trict news comes but seldom.

It iB the fault of residents in silent place^rV Will some man or woman take tne matter in hand and cause the silence to cease. If no one else is doing it for your district, will YOU try on the lines ? Send accounts of public and social events in your township or neighbor hood. Write your name in some corner, not for publication, but as a guarantee of good faith. Write the name of persona very distinctly. Do not bother aboHt grammar or spelling ; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifies. Give infoimation, but let criticism alone. The information will probably be right, and the public can make their own deductions therefrom.

KIDNEY TROUBLES MADE LIFE A BURDEN. 'For many years I was a great sufferer, my Kidneys were io a very un healthy state, and the secretions irregu lar in every way and highly discolored,' says Mra. Elizabeth Best, 31 Greek-street, Glebe, N.S.W. 'Also my legs became badly swollen, and although I had been under treatment from a medical man, I could not pet any relief. I had tried all sorts of Pills and Cures ; but nothing seemed to do me any good until I tried Dr. Sheldon's Gin Pills. In less than .two days I began to feel much better, and every day showed ah improvement, until now I consider that I am com-, pletelv cured of my Kidney Trouble, and my secretions are now clear and regular, and I can also get about my work without that heavy bearing-down feeling which before made life a burden to me.'

Reminiscences of the Past. No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 April 1912

Reminiscences of - the Past. No. 2. Any mention of tbe Avon river would be incomplete without reference to the admirable perch fishing that was eojoyed thirty years . since. Many a merry party, intent on an evening's sport, has crossed Stratford bridge — in those days a sightly struc ture, unaffected as now by the rava ges of time. It was completed under Government supervision, the late Mr W- Moore, of 'Avon Villa,' being the working inspector in, I think, 1873, — so it has had a lengthy existence, although now in a state of senile de cay. The Redbank fishiug ground was much nearer Stratford in thoBe days than it is at present Deep water existed to about a mile above the Show site, below Mr Jones house, before the river commenced to shoal, and it was here that the fish aboun ded (up to 51bs. in weight), the aver age catch being two-and-a-half lbs. A few bream, good-sized fish, up to 2 lbs, were occasionally taken ; but the perch rwas the fish, and right gallant fellows they were, th...

Sudden Death. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 April 1912

Sudden Death. Widespread and general regret was expressed when the sad information was given out that Mr J. J. Bowden, of Sale, was dead. The end came very suddenly on Sunday morning. It is reported that he sat up in bed and remarked that he did not feel very well. Five minutes after that he was dead. He was in the bale streets apparently n his usual health the previous day. The late Mr Bowden will be missed in liccal public affairs, in which he tcok an active interest. He was a native of Tasmania, but many years ago he acquired land interests in South Gippsland, in which pursuit he was very successful. About eight years ago he and his family came to reside in the suburbs of Sale, at ' Glenauburn,' on the Stratford road. While in South Gippsland he wa6 elected a member of the Alberton Shire council, of which he was presi dent on several occasions. He was a prominent member of the Freemason's and had attained the position of Grand Master of the Gipps Lodge. He took an active interest...
