HOW TO KEEP FIT. SOME COMMON SENSE HINTS BY AN EXPERT WHO NEVER KNOWS A MINUTE'S ILL-HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 23 November 1917

HOW TO KEEP FIT. SOME COMMON SENSE HINTB BY AN EXPERT WHO NEVER KNOWS ,A MINUTE'S ILL-HEALT.L No man can keep fit without care. Robust health depends not upon eat ing or drinking alone, but, to a greater extent in the moderate man, on observing rules of life which con tribute to his proper employment of food. He must have plenty of air, to begin with. If he goes without air for five minutes he loses his life, but he might fast for a week without seri ous harm. Yet the air must be pure. Pure air is impossible where men are crowded together without sufficient ventilation and the reason is this. The air ex pelled from the lungs contains a dan gerous gas which, inhaled for a few minutes, is destructive of life. When a third-class compartment in a railway carrinage is occupied by a number of people and the windows are closed, each person, breathing as he does, on an average, fifteen times a minute, consumes 480 cubic inches of air. The pure air is thus gradually' ex hausted, and its plac...

WHITTLESEA AGRICULTURAL SHOW. A GRATIFYING SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 23 November 1917

WHITTLESEA.AGRIOULTURAL SHOW. A GRATIFYING SUICOHBS. The weather on Saturday lest was almost perfect for out-door enjoyment; and this must have accounted for-the fact that there was a record crowd on the Whittlesea alsow grounds, when the gate money amounted to over £68. tho Saturday show was also a wise innovation on the part of this Show Committee, as it enabled visitors from all outlying districts to attend in large numobers, There was also a record number of entries-over 997 being received-and this goes to prove that the Whittloeoa Show is a most popular event. The number of entries in the the several classes were:-Draughts 44 1 Hacks, Hunters, eto, 120 ; Trot. tore, Ponies, etc., 61; Cattle, 87; Sheep and Pigs, 70; Poultry, 90 Shed exhibits, 525.

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 23 November 1917

CORRESPONDENCE. —— 0 —— TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Dear Sir, — If you will kindly grant me space in the "Advertiser," I would like to   place before your readers a few facts about the proposed Diamond Valley Fruitgrowers' Association, as I can only assume that some miscomprehension must exist as to its objects, benefits and necessity ; otherwise there would have been much better attend- ances at the meetings that have been held in connection with its formation. If my fellow fruitgrowers were only fully awake to the importance of the movement, it is abolutely certain that every grower in the district would give it the hearty support that it merits. I will not attempt to give more than a few of the many arguments that could be advanced in its favour:— 1. It will eliminate the ruinous and ridiculous competition between growers, which is of benefit only to the dealers. 2. By organising here, as is being done in other districts, competition between districts can be pra...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 23 November 1917

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir, — Will you grant me space in your columns to reply to the attack which "Hopeful" has made on some of my rela-   tions in your issue of the 2nd inst. It is well known that hereditary peculiarities are the most difficult to eradicate ; and as we are decendants of the famous R. V. Winkle it is only natural that we should have inherited some of his peculiar traits. But with all due deference to "Hopeful,"   I don't think we are as black as he paints us, and I think we have made some improvement of late years, as this is proved by the fact that we are not all of us asleep all the time. Why, I   have known some of us to have filled up a rut on the main road when it has become impassable, after waiting to see if any of our neighbours would do it, and this without any remuneration. Some of us have even attended a public meeting, called to discuss matters for our benefit. We have been also known to sign a petition t...
