RHUBARB. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 1 May 1914

RHUBARB. A. Rhubarb comes in very opportune ly between the stored winter fruita and the fresh fruits of summer. But, just because it is bo useful, it is apt to be abusc-d ; one gets too much of it in some form or another, generally tarts or pudding for dinner and stew for other meals, it appears ou 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 Avhom it is ud wbolesome. 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 an5 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 ...

LIME AND CLOVER. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 1 May 1914

* LIME AND CLOVER. In this abundance of talk ony 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 liumus or vegetable matter in the soil, thus robbing it of its best nitrogen holder. 2. That our main object should be to use lime in order that we may in crease the capacity of our land to grow clover or alfalfa. On these two points "\ve must de pend for a proper rotation, for through thejji we increase the nitro 'gen in the soil. Once get our land to producing abundant and sure Trops J of clover or lucerne, then we have! the key, " with proper management, to ! -further enrichment of the land. Hence | we^should use ground limestone first i of all for the purpose of irrowinc i ^clover or lucerne. If we keen those ! principles and objccts in mind we; will be ;sure not to go wronj. It r...

THE FARM AND DAIRY. WHEY OR SKIM MILK. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 1 May 1914

THE FARM AND DAIRY. WHEY OR SKIM MILK. The relative value of whey and , sirim milk for the purpose of rearing calves or making pork is an ever green topic for dispute in dairying circles. Generally the varying deci sions are arbitrary, and the result of casual experience, and therefore a | test made at the Ontario Experimen i tal Station is. very interesting, j Five groups of pigs were taken for j the purpose of demonstration. 1 To group 1 was fed about 2JIb. of skim milk to every pound of barley and frozen wheat, to which pollard was added. That was called meal, and every group got the same meal. Group 2 was fed an equal quantity in pounds of butter milk and meal. Group 3 was fed common Gheese fac tory whey in placejuf skim milk, and the same ration of meal. Group 4 was fed whey that had been run 'through the separator to take out the butter-fat (three-tenths of 1 per cent per 1001b), and meal as the rest. Group 5 was fed the same quantity of meal and water for their drink. The ski...

Value of Uncooked Food. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 1 May 1914

Value of Uncooked Food. There can bo 110 doubt that freali fruits, nuts, and other fresh and uncooked vegetable food, contain something which is absent from food which has been dried, salted or otherwise preserved. Sailors whose bodies have been reduced to a most pitiable stato by . scurvy recover with most astonishing rapidity when fresh fruits and preen vegetables are added to their dietary. No in vestigator has yet shown just what this necessary element is," but that It exists has been clearly shown by illustrations. Careful experi ments have shown that fresh'juices possess the power of destroying germs, especially those which are - capable of growing in tho alimen tary canal. Cooked fresh juices possess this property also to some extent, but" by no means to so great an extent as do uncooked 'fruit? juices. Per sons suffering from biliousness aro wonderfully benefited by omitting, the evening meals, eating nothing later than four o'clock, and taking tho juice of two or three oran...

Trouble From Tins. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 1 May 1914

Trouble From Tins. i Many housewives arc suspicious oi tinned foods, useful though the hitter are. On opening a tin, at once plunge into the contents a bright .steel knitting-needle, and let it remain for a minute. A steel knifo would do, but it must be (iuite clean. If copper poison is present it is immediately deposited on the steel. This test never fails. "Other precautions are : Never ac cept a tin which is dented or bulg ing, or which even looks ancient. Nor if the tradesman takes if from his window. Tinned goods make a bra've display there, but it's the wrong place to keep them. AH tin ned goods, both in shops and in the house, should l>e kept in a cool, di\V place, away from (he direct sun, or the contents deteriorate. Po not. buy tinned goods which hear no maker's name.

CHAPTER XXIX. DICK'S NURSE, . . . There camc a day, after a. dimly remembered period of-chaos_ and de lirious dreams, when Dick- woke, up fully, conscious and in a strange place. The morning sun -streamed through a window and- brightened a room that was as tastefully furnish ed as his old chambers in the Al bany. He lay in a comfortable bed, sadly thin, and so "weak that he could scarcely move or talk. Three persons were looking down upon him1 -Mary Ferris, Lucille Montejo, and ; the doctor of the King of Troy. In i his dreams he had often seen the two j girls hovering over him, sometimes | Mary, but more frequently Lucille ; j and now ho knew that they had been ; there in reality, watching like guard- ? ing angels while he fought, with grim death.

CHAPTER XXVIII. THE FIGHT ON THE CLIFF. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 1 May 1914

CHAPTER XXVIII. THE FIGHT ON THE CLIFF. The Spaniard and his companions I were unprepared for what happened next, Dick had listened to the words ! of doom-words, that seemed to burn his brain like, fire-with feelings that ( defy description. It was a dreadful fate that lie was about to meet, and j he knew that the sharks would in deed hide all evidence of the crime. But evenmore torturing than the fear of death was jthe thought of his enemy's triumph-the knowledge that the ruffian would live to pursue his evil designs^ unmolested. As the vision of Mary's scornful face rose before Jjis eyes, goading him to mad ness,. the young Englishman put all his strength into one fierce effort to free his arms. And with savage de light he felt the strained cords loosen and slip. . It was just then that Montejo step ped aside, having finished speaking. And almost at the same instant, be fore the fatal sign could be given, Dick whipped his right arm free, shook the cords to the ground^ and tore the...

CHAPTER XXVIT. THE MESSAGE IN THE NIGHT. Prom a troubled dream of far-off England, in which things real and unreal were strangely jumbled to gether, Dick was suddenly wakened by a gentle shake and by the sound of his own name softly pronounced. He sat up in.bed, half persuaded that what he had felt and heard be longed" to his dreams. But he was_ ljuickly undeceived. By the moonlight that streamed through the window;, lie saw the figure of a man standing over him-a man whose features were, in too deep shadow for recognition. "Is it you, Yolborth ?" he asked, jumping to the conclusion that his visitor was the Russian. "What's wrong?" "It is not Yolborth," was thfc whispered reply; "but it is a friend* Hush ! Make no noise. Do I address Monsieur Valentine ?" , "Yes, that's right," "said Dick. He observed that the stranger was a mere lad, and that he spoke with a foreign accent. "Who are you ? What do you want ?" he added. "I'want you, monsieur.' You must; come-with me. It is for the sa...

A silence fell on the two, and thus they stood for a brief space in the moonlit, scented garden, their eyes downcast, their ears deaf to the mur mur of the sea and the echoes of dis tant revelry. Speech would not come to Dick. He was thinking of the poor girl's words, and to himself he ad mitted that they.were partly true. Ke had been carried away by en thusiasm and hope, but now he was face to face with sound reasoning. There might be no secret exit - no steam-launch. And even if he found them, and within five weeks, a thou sand things might happen to prevent, escape from the island. | " Mary, I will be frank with you," | he said. "You are right ; it is more than doubtful if I can discover this hidden passage out of the lagoon. But I can still bid you hope. If my quest fails there is another way to save you." "...
