GROOMING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 24 June 1914
GROOMING HORSES. The skin of the horse, like that of other animals, is an active excretory organ. Supplied with almost an inde finite number of pores, through these, if kept open, a continual discharge of watery fluid, and such other waste matter as is carried there by the blood, occurs. It also contains myriads of minute glands, secreting an oily fluid that is essential for rendering' the skin Eoft and 'flexible, as well as furnishing the nourishment needed by the hair and keeping it soft and glossy. It will not do, therefore, for these pores to get clogged, for in that case the skin would soon become dry, rough, hard, and diseased; nor is there much dan ger of it except when the horse is hard at work. Then the secretion of watery fluid is heavier than when the animal Is idle, and if the sweat is allowed to dry on the skin, dust will accumu late, mixing: with it, and if not cleaned off, All and clog the pores. As a re sult, the skin will not only become diseased, but the whole syst...

MOTOR CAS MONEY. EMPLOYER GIVES TO EMPLOYES [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 24 June 1914
MOTOR CAS MONEY. EMPLOYER GIVES TO EMPLOYES I An industrial experiment that is causing much controversy in the world's press just now is that of Henry Ford, an American motor car manufacturer, who is distributing 10,000,Q00dol. of profits among his em ployes. These profits are distributed fri weekly portions in the pay envel opes of the workers/ and with the wages bring the ordinary worker over £1 per day. Detroit, where the Ford plant is situated, has been inundated since the announcement was made with seekers after employment where the high wages are handed out, ac cordingly the payment of double the ruling wage has had a most unsettling effect upon other employers' labor in the motor industry. Ford has highly specialised, all operations in his fac tory, with the result that each man of the 15,000 employes has some small task allotted him, which practice en able him to perform at great speed; but the! argument against this sys tem is that it tends to turn the man into a mere autom...

SNAGGING LATROBE RIVER. When discussing the appointment of delegates to the second conference at Traralgon oa the subject of snagg ing the Latrobe river, at the Rosedala council meeting on Monday, Cr Henderson said it wias the duty of the government to keep all the waterways clear. On this point he differed from the rest of the delegates at the last conference, and for that reason he would not accept appointment again. Cr Davis said that the landowners; who would benefit very materially, should bear part of the cost. Cr Widdis'declared that he believed all the landowners were prepared to pay whole or part of the cost of the scheme. Cr Futcher said the owners of land affected were prepared to pay a fair share. Tlje scheme should be pro ceeded with without delay, so that the owners would reap the benefit. In his opinion, the scrub along the banks should be removed, otherwise trees would be continually falling into the stream, and checking the flow. He estimated that between RoBedale a...

YOO SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sate of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled!

I WOMEN TO SHOW TOES. I Mile. Jeanne Prevost, the dainty ac tress, has aet all Paris talking of a new fashion—the mode of hare toes.

BIOGRAPH AND THE PRESS. Movies to Train Reporters. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 24 June 1914
; "bTograph and the press. Movies to Train Reporters. iThe Columbia School of Journal ism lias introduced a new method of training their embryo journalists. Mo tion pictures will be shown to the stu dents in the future, and they will be required to write them up as. if they had actually seen the events in real life represented 09 the screen. The first pictures to be used were three reels of the Balkan War films. In this way the faculty hopes to be able to train the scholars in accurate observation in reporting the events as they happen. In explaining the reason for adopt ing motion pictures to train students I in journalism, Dr. Talcott Williams, s director of the School of Journalism, , said:— j "In adopting the new experiment in I education the School of Journalism 1 hopes to overcome its greatest ob ! stacle, that of giving the students j practice in reporting actual events, j and at the same time making it pos . sible for the instructors to know how ' accurately and thoroughly t...

FOOTBALL. MOE Y. WILLOW GROVE. MOE SCOEES ANOTHER VICTORY. (By Free Kick). The Moe team added to their laurels on Saturday last—by defeating Willow Grove by a big margin. The field of battle was the Moe Recreation Reserve, and the prospects of seeing the Moe boys in action attracted a good crowd of spectators, amongst whom 1 was pleased to note a fair sprinkling of ladies. The ground had been much improved by a furrow, which, having been ploughed around the boundary, made it an easy matter to tell when the ball was in, or out of, play. Another great boon was the new goal and behind posts. The Willow Grove representatives did not put in an appearance until nearly 4 o'clock, and even at that late hour they only numbered between seven and nine—a very small handful to encounter such formidable opponents, who counted a full team. A large number of foot ball enthusiasts were on the ground, and when it was found that (he "Grove" had only a few men, a general rush occurred to see what could...
