POPULAR ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 April 1914
POPULAR ERRORS. It is a popular sanitary error, says i contemporary, to think that the nore a. mau eats the fatter and ,tronger he will become. To beiieve that. the more. hours :hildrdn study the faster they learn. To conclude that, if exercise is good, *he more violent the more good is lone. To imagine that every hour taken from sleep is an hour gained. To act on the presumption that the ;nallest room in the house is large :nough to sleep in. To imagine that whatever remedy :auses one to feel immediately better s ood for the system, without re aird to the ulterior effects. To eat without an appetite, or to •,ntfinue after it has been satisfied, n!:rely to gratify tile taste. ., eat a hearty supper at the ex ens:e of a whole nighbt of disturbed ;ihep and weary waking in the morn ng.
LIME AND ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 April 1914
LIMt AND ELECTRICITY. --0- As stated int he last issue of the ' Journal" the syndicate formed. with the object of developing the almost inexhautible resources of lime in the Tyers hills, is making preliminary investigations and surveys on -the spot. The sur veyors' camp is on the little penin sula below the off-take of the Tra ralgon water scheme. The party is at present surveying the pro posed pipe line from the welr, along the hill side, and thence through the hill. Probably t:he pipe line will not go through the tunnel made by the Waterworks; Trust, but another tunnel may be driven through the hill to the power house, some little distance lower down the river than the mouth of the present tunnel. The present mnestigation will be on. an extensive scale, and may take a couple of months, possibly more. It will' of course also in clude the lime proposition, as well as the electric proposition. When it is completed, the company will have every detail ot the scheme before them. It is i...

COWS IN THE ALPS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 April 1914
COWS IN THE ALPS. The cows in the ,\IAlps are generally very larce and nie, oif a dark mn1.I. .',:or, growing wh:te at the muzzie, writes a correspondent. Each one has - name, and a bell around her neck, •nd as the herder must be with them Il! day. they are so aecu.:oned to be 1. s - .. , , , ,n= with humankind, that they really .ecm to have humn: intl.liigence.

THE TELEPHONE. Aline for the telephone is mar ked between Tyers and Traralgon, and the people are natthrally elated at the prospect of being so soon connected to Traralgon by 'phone. It seems such a short time since Mr. E. J. Christian initiated the movement, and government me thods are so noted for their slow ness, that it 'came as a 'siuirprisde to find that the line had been marked out.
NOTES ON THE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 April 1914
NOTES ON THE RACES. The committee and officers of the Traralgon Racing Club have reason to feel gratified at the suc cess of their meeting on Thursday. The attendance was real good, and there is not the slishghtest doubt htad the weather not been so threa:en ing it would have been larger. As it was the takings were only £7 less than the previous meeting. This is particu'arly gratifying, see-. ing that something like 150 mem hber's tickets were printed forthe opening meeting, and these also entitled members to admission on Thursday. * * * * There is not the slightest doubt that the purchasing of the new course, close to the town4 has been the turning point in the club's career. Previbus to this not a great deal of interest was taken mn the Traralgon races. The course was too far out of the town, and even when one got there he was unable to obtain a clear view of the racing, owing to the trees and scirub that obscured the horses at the back of the course. It one wished to see what was...

TRARALGON SOUTH FARM. MR. D. M'DONALD'S. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 April 1914
TRARALGON SOUTH FARM. -----o-- MR. D. M'DONALD'S. The farm now owned by Mr. D. M'Donald, of Traralgon, South, has always had the reputation of being one of the best ot the many fine properties on the Traralgon creek flats . It was originally .se lected by Mr. Richard Pentland, who had a lot of the poorer bush country with it. Mr. Pentland sold out well some years ago to Mr. H. S. Hammett. The latter worked it personally for some time, and then leased it to the late Mr. R. Mortimer. . Subseuently, .. Mr. Hammett sold the property to Mr. IF. Faulkner, who, m turn, sold the two creek farms comprismg 160 acres, to Mr. M'Donald. The latter at once leased the south halt, which is a .complete farm in itself, to Mr. Fraser, and retained the front portion. On this 80 acres there is a large and comfortable modern dwelling. Every acre of the 'soil is good, and the flats towards th ecreek are as rich as anyone need hope for. So much is beyond cavil, and there are "just a few" farmers who would ...

KING ISLAND LAND! [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 April 1914
KING ISLAND LAND! Recently, much attention has been drawn to King Island, a smahll island some sixty miles long, by thirty miles wide, situated min Bass Straits, mid-way between Port, Philhp Bay and Tasmamna. The daily papers have also been pub lishing information mn connection with the Island. It is an Island tew people seem to know anything about. Boasting of only one real town, the balance of the country is devoted to agriculture and pas toral pursuits, the soil being appar ently of exceptlonal tertility. Grass either natlve or English) grows luxuriantly, and it is said that the fattening qualities of the landare such that one bullock to the acre can be fattened thtee times mn the year. The land has been alienated for some.years, but it is said there is plenty of land to be secured by anyone looking for a block. Curric, a neat and picturesque hlittle town on the West Coast, is at present the sea port, but a new one is being established on the east coast where plenty of deep water...

CAN WE ACQUIRE BEAUTY? [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 April 1914
CAN WE ACQUIRE BEAUTY ? This is a question that will touch the heart of every lady reader, and though it may not be answered to every lady's entire satisfaction, there is certainly a good deal of interest in knowing how other women have done it--or imagine they have. Therefore, "Every: lady's Journal" hits upon a ive topic when it gives the views of a nutimber of leadming women, and portralts, on "How to be Beauti ful." It seems that beauty of fig tire is the great consideration ra ther than the beauty that is skini-' deep, and we learn from the ladies who have given their views to " Everylady's Journal" that beauty of both body and face will follow perfect health. This, therefore, is the object to be aimed at, and the means suggested are many and various. Miss. De Vere, the spin ted comedienne of the " Dandles," for example, advocates dancing, and says the oft-condemned Tango has its advantages as a health ex erciser. Miss. Murray, a Scot tish champion, votes for swimming. Miss. Me...

RABBIT DESTRUCTION. Digging out [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 April 1914
RABBIT DESTRUCTION. -o (By FRANK ALLEN). Digginig out ,While this appears to be a sim ple matter requirmg no points, yet there are several that may be em phasised. There iS no doubt that it is the thing in rabbit destruction where it can be done. Yet the ex perience is that it is one of the easiest things to slum by careless workmen. It is easy to miss little runs or side burrows. If the land owner goes over the filled-in bur rows the next day and finds :any clean cut holes with the soil scrat ched backwards, he will reahse that rabbits are being missed. No bur row or warren should be left partry finished over mnight. If so, nearly 'all the rabbits-barring, perhaps, the little ones-will clear out bc fore next day. Any one who has haa a perfectly secure wire-netted paddock dug out, knows that the biggest catches are made in the last day or two. Now, when a pad dock is not so netted, a very good plan to adopt is to do a day,s dlg gmng on, say, the north-east corner the next day the so...

Christensen &nbsp; was re-elected president, and Mr. A. E. Paulet secretary. As most of the meetings were held in the day time, Mr. Jolly, the previous secretary was often unable to be present. &nbsp; It was decided to have a &nbsp; general poisoning on April 9, when baits will be supplied to all members of the league free of cost. &nbsp;
FARMERS' CO-OPERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 10 April 1914
FARMERS' CO-OPERATIONS -0--o- The Gippsland and Northern Co operative Selhng Co .Ltd. is tak ing steps to enlarge its capital, and extend the scope of .its business, by entering upoii fire, hlve stock and workinan's compensation insur ance.
