COUNCIL JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 June 1914

COUNCIL JOTTINCS. At the last meeting of the Narracan Shire Council, Cr Mahony objected to some work (forming') being done at Yarragon. The work in question—in front of the State School—would cost over £7, and he held that, if the matter had come before the council in the ordi nary way, it would not have been under taken. He (Cr Mahony) also objected to a pipe culvert—leading to private property — being taken up and other (larger) pipes inserted at the expense of the council. They had; only a meeting or two since, refused to do similar work. He would be glad to know who had authorised the work ; the council had certainly not.—The Engi neer (Mr Thompson) explained that the grader was working in the vicinity of the spot where the forming was done, and that Cr Campbell thought it advisable to have the work complained of carried out ; therefore, he (the Engi neer) had given instructions for it to be undertaken. This spot had frequently been complained about, and the council had had seve...

¥00 SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived ! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not- depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts. What you want is quality and reliabilit}' in small dose, and this you find only in— SANDER'S EXTRACT.

COAL-MINING AT COALVILLE [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 June 1914

GOAL-MINING AT COALVILLE An attempt to revive the coal mining industry in the Coalville district is now about to be made. A co-operative com pany (consisting of 20 persons, who have subscribed ^5 apiece) has been formed, and a working manager (Mr Gidney, of Ivorumburra—one of the 20 persons re ferred to) appointed to work the lease formerly held by the Dudley Collieries' Company. The company has been suc cessful in purchasing the plant used by the Dudley Coy. for the extremely low sum of £95, and, judging by present indications, there is every prospect of the new venture proving a success. A short time since the Government was ap proached and a drill secured to teat the country in the vicinity of the present (Dudley) mine, in order that the management may be guided as to what steps it should take in carrying out future operations. The drill was expec ted to arrive on Friday last. The pro moters of the new company are very sanguine as to its success, and we trust that their expectati...

1 RAILWAY AND TRAMWAY MEN SHOULD USE CLEMENTS TONIC MR. CHARLES ROCK, of 42 Gladen Street, East Brunswick, 33 years in the Melbourne Tramway and O.B. Company, writes, on 2/4/12 :— CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. " In December, 1911, I was laid up with pleurisy, so serious the doctor consulted another. For three days MY TEMPERA TURE WAS 104 DEGREES. MY LIFE WAS DESPAIRED OF, bat through taking the doctor's advice I live to-day. He advised my wife to get CLEMENTS TONIC for me, as 'there was life in that medi cine.' When he said, 'life in Clements Tonic,' they were the TRUEST WORDS HE EVER UTTERED. I would have been in my last resting place only for that grand medicine. Had my wife paid £40 for the bottle she would have had good value. I have seen a lot of testimonials about CLEMENTS TONIC in books and papers, but what I find fault with is that every writer has utterly failed to give a proper value of that medicine.

WHY JAPANESE WOMEN LOOK PLEASANT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 June 1914

WHY JAPANESE WOMEN LOOK PLEASANT. Perhaps the secret of the sweet ex pression and habitual serenity of the Japanese women can be found in their freedom from small worries. The fash ion of dress never varying saves the wear of mind on that subject, and thf> bareness of the houses and simplicity of diet makes housekeeping a mere bagatelle. Everything is exquisitely clean, and easily kept so. There is no paint, no drapery, no crowd of little ornaments, no coming into the houses with the footwear worn in the dusty streets. And then the feeling of living In rooms that can be turned into bal conies and verandahs at a moment's notice, of having walls that slide away as freely as do the scenes on the stage, and let in all out-of-doors or chance the suites of rooms to the shar>e ami size that the whim of the day or fK-> hour requires.

STOCK BREEDING. THE COLOR OF SHORTHORNS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 June 1914

STOCK BREEDING. THE OOtOR OF SHORTHORN#. Although ahorthorns may without [ disparagement be more diversified in color markings than almost any other bovine breed, all the recognised pat terns of coat do not find equal favor with breeders. A good Shorthorn of select lineage may be red, white, or roan, without suggesting anything of the nature of departure from the true characteristics of the breed, or with out material injury to its selling value Yet while red, white and roan coats are all equally permissible as far as breed peculiarities are concerned, there are few farmers who would not prefer a deep red or a rich roan to a white animal the last being distinct!} the least fashionable of the three stan daid colors, a ••hough, of course, since It ianks as one of the recognised '"col ors,' it stands in a different and su perior level to red and white or yel lowish red, both of which markings are looked upon as distinctly objec tionable.

[?] THE FARMER. WASTED ENERGY ON THE FARM [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 10 June 1914

.. ...C. FARMEh. WA"™C 1 ENERGY ON THE FARM Thi-re is too much wasted force and energy on the farm. Of all the wastes of the farm this is the most exhaus tive, most destructive of its resources. The most vital values of the farm's re sources are essentially in the active, menial and physical forces of its oper atives. Deplete these and the produ cing capacity of the farm has been di minished in relative proportion. • The farmer himself is the one directly re sponsible for the unnecessary expendi ture of forces that could be utilised to better advantage, and so sacrifices incalculable energies, by waste and mis direction that tend to Incapacitate both himself and his farm. Notable among other wastes is the unnecessary power expended in doing by hand, by "main strength and awkwardness;" after the manner of medieval ways, the things that can;be so much more expeditious ly and cheaply done by machinery and improved tools and implements. Only, in instances that are exceptions can it be c...
