Sunday Corner. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
Sunday Corner. ' Whatsoever.Thinigs are Lovely.' We become triuly beautiful just in the measure that we become like God. Human holiness is not always beautiful. There are men who are good but not lovely. They have qualities that repel others. But true holiness is attractive. We ought to make our religion so beau tiful that all who look upon us shall be drawn to our Master. We do dishonor to - Christ when we profess jtp be his people, and yet show in our character, disposition, and life things that are unlike Christ. .How will men of the world know what true religion is if you and I do not show them its beauty .in our liyes?: We should seek not onlyvwhatsoever things are just and trud and honest, but also whatsoever things ara lovely;

HOW DESERTS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
HOW DLEERTS ARE FORM]ED. There is a popular idea that deserts like the Sahara are the bottoms pf ancient seas which have .been lifted above their original elevation by geological forces. This notion is an erroneolus one. It is absolutely cer tain, high authorities contend, that the sands of all the great deserts have been formed on the spot by the disintegration.. of the solid rocks on which they rest. Desert sands cor resp;ond in all? respects, so far as their mode of origin is concerned, to the dust and sand t~at accumulates on our high roads in summer. All deserts are situated where the winds romc the eceean, before reaching themn are exhausted- c' -their moisture by pnssimg over merntains o. across ex tensiv~e ·Ftrae at- land.

SOME PLEASANT TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
SOW?E PLEASANT TAfTTLEW "Some men'," says & writer in- a &ome journal,, in disclosing 'tricks' of bhe! furnishing trade,. 'can' take new furniture and' make it look as if it was made a century age.' But there Is nothing remarkable in this. An' intelligent rchild . can- do: the same. "I believe,." says Mr. Willinm Poel, "that in. 300 years Mr. Bernard Shaw's writings will still interest people." Mr. Shaw himself, however regards Mr.- Poel's estimate as an absurdly moderate one. "All a woman asks is to be loved'," says a poet. Then all those tales about her wanting new frocks,, motor ears, and unlimited jewellery.\are a vile slander. "Take away woman," says an ar ient "votes-for-women" supporter in one of the dailies, "and what would follow 7" Why, man, of course. An Irish M.P. is well remembered .

RHUBARB. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
RH UB.ARB.... Rhubarb comes in very opportune ly between the stored winter fruits and the fresh fruits of summer. But, just because it is so useful, it is apt to be abused ; one gets too much of it in some form or another, generally tarts or pudding for dinner and stew for other meals, it appears on the table every day; while, from a mistaken idea of its exceeding wholesomeness, it is almost forced on children and others who do not care for it, and to whom it is un wholesome. As a matter of fact, rhubarb is not good for everybody on account of the acid it contains, which is generally oxalic, very differ ent to the mild malic acid of the ap ple or gooseberry. It should never be touched by gouty persons,, and those who are delicate in anS way should partake of it in moderation. 'On the other hand, however, strong and healthy people may eat as much of it as they care for, and it will be very benefi cial to them, acting as a blood puri fier in the same way as other vege tables and fresh...

LIME AND CLOVER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
LIME AND CLOVER. In this abundance of talk on the use of lime on land, it is well for us to establish certain well known prin ciples in our mind-to start with. 1. That we should not. use burned or quick lime, unless thoroughly air .slacked, because of its caustic pro perty whereby it eats up the humus ·or vegetable matter in the soil, thus robbing it of its best nitrogen holder. 2. That our main oobject should be to use lime in order that we may in crease the capacity of our land to grow clover or .alalfalfa. On these two points we must de pend for a proper rotation, for through them we increase the nitro gen in the soil. Once get our land to producing abundant and sure crops of clover or lucerne, then we have the key, with proper management, to further enrichment of the larnd. Hence we should use ground limestone first of all for the purpose of growing clover or lucerne. If we keep these principles and objects in mini we will be sure not to go wrong. It used to be said: "Everything...

VALUE OF RIPE APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
VALIUE OF RIPE APPLES. The old idea that apples wvere the favourite fruit of the gods is a plau-' sible theory. The freshness of youth was ever possessed by those who made apples their principal diet. Cer tain it is that there is no food so valuable. Apples nourish the hbrain and spinal cord. They cont.in phos phorus, albumen, sugar, gum, chloro phyll, malic acid, gallic acid, vege table fibre and water. They enre gout and rheumatic disorder, and ex ercise a beneficent infuence on thd liver and stomach. Ripe apples, and bread as a diet will do more to re store health than drugs.-"Family Doctor."

Geelong Infectious Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
Geelong Infectious HospitaJl "The .pkeep of the Infectious Hospital at Geelong is likely to p;rove far more expensive to the neighboring councils than at first premised. This. was. commented upon at last week's meeting of the Queenscliff council, when a re quest was received from the secre tary of the institution" for a sum of £5 as the council's proportion for repairs and painting the building. Cr Klug regarded the conditions of claim upon the borough as octopus-like--that there .. would, apparently, be no limit to the hos pital claims, especially if an .epi demic brok`e out. The counicil. had paid its ratio as at first arranged, which should be suficieet. Another communication, from the Geelong City Council, stated. that an emergencytent had been .erected at the infectious ward for £115, .and-requested the Q'ueenseliff council to forward its proportion of the cost, which is £3 12s 6d.
