PAINFUL SUNBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 10 March 1914

PAINFUL SUN3URN. 1 Jiaro seen a child-(.1 boy of eleven) crying bitterly from tho pain cuuscd by tho sunburmug 01 his lugs, which had been exposed ail day long on the s.vbeach to tho full glaro of tho mid summer sun, writes Plurenco Stacpoolo lecturer to the National Health So ciety of Kngland. Many people forget that sunburn often onuses as muvU puin as frostbite, and sunburnt legs often cause u lot ot suffering from which it would bo quite easy to protect them by greasing tltem all over before tho child goes out in tho morning. Tho nicest thing for tho purpose is olive oil, lauoliuo, or vaseline, but this would como rather expeusivc if tho summer should be a long, hot one, and if there should bo a huge number of legs.to bo operated upon. it is,, therefore, well to remember that any kind of clean kitchen greaso wjJI answer a& well. The greaso should bo what cooks call "rendered" before it is used for an ointing the skin. # The process of "ren dering'.1 is quito simple. i'ut...

REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 10 March 1914

REASONS FOR ROTATIONS .U tho basis of all genuine rotations lies the fact that plants differ from one i'liothor in their demands upon the soil, both chemical and physical; they differ with regard to their root systems, depth of feeding, tlieir'nioisturo requirements, their time of feeding, their dates in reaching maturity, etc. Many plauts impoverish the soil; a feu* enrich it; somo spoil its physical condition, while others improve it in that regard. Many crops favor tho growth of weeds, while others cither are ablo to hold tho weeds in chcck, or ro ■ quire such cultivation and treatment as | will prevent their growth. All these differences fit plants for different places in rotation, and a well arranged rotation is one in which the strong points of ono orop follow ho as to fit into tho. weak points of another, or vice versa, and iu# this way reduoo deficiencies to a minimum. A crop that requires a large amount of ono de ment should be followed by ono that requires less of that ele...

NOTES ON NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 13 March 1914

NOTES ON NATURE. The economic value of our native birds is seldom appreciated. We can generally, see auy littio weakness they possess in stealing a morsel ol* fruit, or a few graius of seed; but the good they do, and which they do not adver tise, > is unconsidered. When wc dis cover that few of . our birds, compara tively, are syed-oatera, and, the major ity are almost wholly insectivorous, their value inayvappear more promi nent. sit is really only for a short time in the year thaVbiriTs arc at all troublesome in our orchards and even then^tho good they do is in a greater proportion than tho harm. ,This, of course, only applies to tho native avi fauna, and. ^ho natural inference is that they aro .worthy of moteetion. Apart from their distinctive beauty, their gentle habits, and, in many eitM-i-, their delightful singing, the question of utility should appeal to eveu prac tical folk. To arm a boy or even a girl (as somo of our farmers do) with a gun, iu order to shoot bird.-,, is...
