PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 27 March 1914

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. It is notew rthy that two murderers have recently suffered capital punish ment in Prussia, because only some four to eight per cent, of capital sen tences are carried out in Germany, the proportion in Great Britain being over 5u per cent. iThe newspapers common ly speak of these German criminals as victims of the axe or Tilock, without much discrimination. By the German law all capital punishments must be carried out by beheading, ibut it is left to the separate States to choose their own method. In those districts which were annexed by Napoleon I, the guil lotine still prevails. Other regions may use the axe, the sword, or,a car ving knife if they please. JThe Prus sian method is that, the viotim sit ting in a chair, lie is beheaded 'by a horizontal sweep of a long sword.

FORTUNES REFUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 27 March 1914

FORtUNES REFUSED. ..It ..is said , that when it became known that the letters of the great Irish leader,.

The offer was refused. Robert Browning constantly refused to 'write for the magazines and re views. He only departed from his self-denying ordinance on one occa sion, and that was in aid of charity. In his later days, when. Browning so cieties were springing up all over Britain and America, fabulous prices were offered to him even ifor a short .poem. He put all these tempting oilers aside and "stuck to his text" to his dying day.

The Great Monfcamor Gage. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts,'* CHAPTER XX. Suspense, A veiled woman, finely developed, iu black, stood to the left of . the Vicar, who gazed at her in mild as tonishment. Netta stared at her, won dering rather than alarmed; ' Lady Montamor's great eyes flashed -acorn. She had at once recognised Gwendo len in the unseemly interrupter who had suddenly stepped out oftfie shadow cast by a stone pillar. And!, Robert drew himself up and looked' at the spot In the veil where the eyes of the interm'eddler should bo. He was pale, but an expression of contempt as well as of determination was expressed by every feature . of his comely face. He recognised Gwen , dolen-but also recognised that -Bhe ; had no right to interrupt his wedding; her so doing was.^dn his opinion,, on a par with the fact that she had hun; cd him down, probably by detectives in her pay. Indignant, his first instinct was .to protect Netta. "After that, ? the de luge," he t...

MARKING FOWLS [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 27 March 1914

MARKING F0WL9 .-..There are two ways in which the iarmer may mark his poultry so that he can tell absolutely the exact age of any fowl. First by leg banding ; second, by punching the web of the foot of newly hatched chicks. The former method consists of . banding the leg of the fowl with small numbered or lettered bands of aluminium, wire and composite metals. This method is eminently satisfactory for the man who makes a specialty of poultry raising and breeding, but for the average farmer, the latter method is. quicker, cheaper, and more practical. With the latter method one operation marks the bird for life, while in the former the bands have to be changed from time to time as the chick matures. , Light breeds are precocious and de v'elop rapidly; they may be caponized when two or three months old. The heavy breeds will be ready at from three to five months old. Don|t let it go beyond six months, as after that age the. organs are bigger, carry more blood, and so cause the operatio...

THE POULTRY RUN. BONE DEFORMITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 27 March 1914

THE POULTRY RUN. BONE DEFORMITIES. The most frequently met with de fortuity among: badly-managed chic kens is that known as crooked-breast It is a deformity resulting either from the use of perches at too early an age, or through feeding the chickens OD foods deficient in bone-forming ele ments. In nine cases out of every ten the' too early use of perches is not the cause of tlie trouble, but the latter is traceable to unsuitable ratios). If chickens are to escape breast curva ture, due regard to the development of strong frames must be paid when diet ing them. The use of a good propor tion of oat foods in the chickens' ra tions will do much towards the secur ence of strong frames. Oats in a ground, split and hulled form are all excellent for chickens, and where they arc used bone deformities are seldom met with. Another good bone former is milk, and. this the youngsters should be given to drink at least once a day during their pwiod of growth. The fibrous parts of meat, scalded bra...

| INDIGESTION. PAN IT BE BANISHED 1 Now, can it 1 Must a woman go on suffering from headaches, biliousness, flatulence, pains after eating, languor, or any of the other distressing symp toms that arise from faulty action of the stomach or the livor ? Must men be made less fit for work, less able to keep pace with their competitors, because indigestion is sapping their energies, and clogging their minds ? Have men and women to go on endur ing these things without liopo of rocovery ? Assuredly not! Most cases of acuto indigestion are the result of neglect or of indifference. People get into a foolish h i hit of thinking that they will be better on the morrow, or in a week or two, and so the complaint gets hold and the sufferer goes from bad to worse. Food ought to give up its life sustaining elements for every nerve and musclo in your body ; it ought to replenish the rich, red stream of blood flowing through your veins, and help you to think, to act, and to work with the vim of the he...

HOW TO BECOME HAPPY IN OLD AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 27 March 1914

HOW TO BECOME HA^PY IN OLD AOS. It has bean said that happiness in old ago is an art, but modern authori ties on this subject d«claro that it is nothing more nor less than common sense. Whether it is common Bense or an art, tho fact romains that it is pos sible for tho aterago man and woman of advanced years to bo far happior than tho young and early middlo-aged .would beliovo. In tho first place avoid treatment. That is, just because a person has reached old age it does not follow that he should bo constantly treated as though ho woro sick. Old ago is not sickness, nor is it really any form of eickness, it is perfectly natural. When an elderly person is bedridden or unable to moro than totter about, then ho is sick and unnatural, and needs treatment, but for tho avorago normal person of advanced yease, a continual treatment is tho wont thin? possible as it is a constant reminder that he is "about dona for."

SETTING THE THAME8 ON FIRE. ' Whenever we say to any one, "He will never set tho Thames on firo,"* we mean, of course, that he is not s very intelligent oc industrious person and that he will never do anything brilliant or worth remembering. This would lead some to think that becauso of this old saying some one some time actually did set a river- on fire, or else it would- lead us to belieVd that if originated, with a-pessimist who hojjevcd biff deeds, were impossible. - As a matter of fact this saying, when it originated in the agricultural and rural districts of Great Britain, had nothing whatever to do with a rivor.
