FARM AND FIELD. Hungry Farms. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 10 July 1908
FARM ARB" FIELD. Hnncry Farms. The following article from an Amorl^ can paper is interesting" and informa tive: "Farmers of the right sort feel thoi hunger of their farms, as If It wore their own. Nothing on earth glv'fas them such a satisfied feeling as to see the pooy pleco made rich, and the barren, stony spot producing a paying crop, When Bome neglected source of fertility is dls» covered and saved and put upon tho land, the farmer feels as if he were en*. Joying a full meal. When crops are sold It worries him to thlnlc of the soli richness that is being carried away, and so ho feeds "out all he can upon tho £arm, "If he buys grain he knows, ho is feed-' lng the soli and is consoled for the out lay.

BRIDAL SUPERSTITIONS. Safeguards against Disaster. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 10 July 1908
BRIDAL SUPERSTITIONS. Safeguards against Dlsastor. Have you any bridal superstitions? Perhaps and perhaps not, but, anyhow, here arc some German theories about things that are considered "bad luck" for the bride tiiat may be of interest. According to the Germans, the bride must be especially careful on her wed ding day not to put the left foot out of bed first-for that would mean per petual strife. It is most necessary . to see that thirteen persons do not sit down to breakfast together that day. Many misfortunes will befall that bride who tries the wedding ring on the proper finger pefore the wedding; this is con sidered an anticipation of fate, and fate is not to be so caught. It is oven possible that in such cases the wed ding may fail at the last moment. In fact some brides think it a bad sign if the bridegroom even show them the ring before the wedding. When the bride puts on the wedding dress she must be very careful not to rip or tear it-not even a bit of lace, nor should she...
WHERE DR JOHNSON WAS BORN. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 10 July 1908
tVIIEItE DR JOHNSON WAS BOHN. Dr. Johnson's birthplace, for tho re pair of which on appeal, as we (the .'Westminster Gazette") have already . nct'.ecd, 's being made, Is a seventeenth century edifice, standing In tho market square al Lichfield, and was purchased by the lexicographer's father on his marriage In 1706. Except that the lower story in slightly altered, tho old "house has undergone very little chanje. X room Immediately over tho bookseller's shop and facing the market-square is the one in which "tho patron saint of Fleet street" was born. At that timo this was one of the few shops of the kind in tho provinces; and "learned Litch field" still , possesses more booksellers' shops than any' otlier town in proportion to population. If the herd is large and tho pasture short, and some stock must.bo taken off, see to it that the milch cow remains.
EXPLAINING THE VACUUM. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 10 July 1908
EXPLAINING THE VACUUM. Two commercial travellers whilo in a train, got into an argument over tho action of tho vacuum brake. "It's tho inflation of tho tubo that stops tho train," declared tho first traveller. "Wrong, wrong!" shouted tho sec ond. "It's tho output of tho exhaus tion." So thoy wrangled for an hour.. Then, when tho train arrivod at tho station, thoy agreed to submit tho matter for sottlomont to tho driver. That gentle man, loaning condescendingly from tho window of his cab, listoned with an attentive frown to tho two travellers' statement of thoir argument. Thon ho smiled, shook his hoad, and Baid: ? "Well, gents, yo'ro both wrong about tho workin' of tho vacuum brako. Yot it's vory simple and easy to undor- ' stand. "When wo want to stop tho train | wo just turn this 'oro tap, and thon wo fill tho pipo with vacuum,"
THOU SHALT NOT ENJOY THYSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 10 July 1908
THOU SHALT NOT EN.TOY THY SELF. Macaulay tells us that bull-baiting was suppressed in this country' not so much because of the cruelty it in-, volvcd, as because it afforded amuse meat /or tho populace. One is at times inclined to feel .that tho re formers of the present clay are im-'. buod by tho same spirit of intolcr-. ance. Even the most ardent sup porters of tho turf are prepared to admit that some .people who attach' themselves to it are foolish enough, to get out of their depths, and suffer; accordingly; but if that is sufficient) to warrant the suppression of racing and betting wo shall have to re-, model the whole scheme of civilisa-: tion, because precisely tho samo argument can be urged against very, many of our institutions. Racing is not only a great sport; it is tho, foundation of a great industt'y-that of horse breeding.-"Sentinel" in tho "Pall utfall Gazette."

THE ILLUSTRATIONS. Since Irish crochct has been in voguo the French have set themselves to work to produce the lace more cheaply. Tile result is that their crochet is undersell ing the patiently-made Irish lace. There is a cheaper kind of crochet 6ent from Turkey to Europe. The French dress makers snip out figures and scrolls from it. and work it In with more expensive ldnds.

THE FORCE OF HABIT. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 10 July 1908
THE FORCE OF HABIT.' A psychologist was rccontly remind ed of tno story of a jailor who, chang ing his occupation, found tho chief in torcst of his leisure moments in catch ing birds, putting thorn in cages, and selling thorn to the highest bdidor. _ The scientist having to attend ~a scries of lectures in a largo public hall, struck up an acquaintance with tlio janitor of tho building, and soon noted in him a suggestivo bont of mind. Tho man seemed fond of counting tho peoplo, and would occasionally roport tho exact numbor present. "Wo havo 115 hore to-night," ho would say, or "Just 201 all told," or, when tho hall was crowded, "I mako it 370." Theio was a problem in all this, but it took some timo for tho psychologist to solve it. A bit of friendly, familiar talk, con tinunlly renewed, did tho business, for it brought out tho fact that the janitor had spout many of the previous years of his life as a prison warder. With riflo on shoulder, from some en closing wall, tho man had coun...

ROUND THE WORLD. THE MOTOR RACE, A CAR SUNIC MIDNIGHT VIGIL. In-the "Dally Mall" of 21st March Senor Antonio ScarfogUo wired trom Rawlings (Wyoming) on the previous Tuesday: At Laramie begin the real Rockies, which wo shall have to conquer In a journey of 900 mllea. And they begin w'thout any pomp or majesty. It Is only at first a .grassy plain that rises very slowly. Then comes a gentle slope which leads to a higher plain. This stretches out towards the horizon with out a single break. Only in the far dis tance do purple summits' riso in the blue sky. The track rises but gently, and at 5 p.m. we are fifty miles from Laramie, and at an altitude of 7000ft. The wind has grown Icy. Snow again creaks under our wheels. Good-bye to easy driving. "We travel very slowly, for cur shovels have once more to come into play and we have to take a zigzag route to avoid, obstacles. Night falls. A guide precedes us o*i foot showing the way with a groat smoking torch. At 9 p.m. wo have covered anothe...
HEALTH WITHOUT DRUGS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 10 July 1908
HEALTH WITHOUT DRUGS. "Gossip" in tho,"Stock and Station Journal " thus vcviows Dr, Muskott's lipw book : The curious fact about health is tlint it ail depends on what people eat. It everybody ate right, mid lived right, there would be no -disease. All dis ease-dis-ease-is the result of sin, and sin is ignorance. Dr. Muskett deals with this fact, niid tells you what some people think about doctors and their ignorance of foods and their values. lie quotes Dr. Osier, the .Iteglus Professor at Oxford as saying: "There probably never 'has been a time in the history of the profession when the value of diet in the prevention and cure of dis ease was more fully recognised." Is that true? "I line ma doots." There is a fearful lot of drugging and (losing goes on oven yet, and- dietetics appear to play n very secondary part in the medical world. The advanced men of the Osier sciiool have recognised It, but the rank and tile is as yvt: afar off. The reason of that probably, is partly due to th...

IN SHE SAIAP. SOME PUNGENT INGREDIENTS. .The Chef who makes up the "'Salad Bowl" in "M.A.P.'' furnishes the fol lowing tit-hits: An artesian well Is being bored in Shorter's Court outside the Stock Ex change. We understand that this Is a precaution to prevent the bulls and bears suffering from drought In case the Licensing Bill becomes law. A numl>er of men and women are in custody In Glasgow for a warehouse burglary, where they not only blew up the safe, but ate the stock of sandwiches kept for the use oi the start. We un derstand the staff is overjoyed, as there now seems some prospect of having a fresh lot cut. The "Hospital" comments on the sur prising fact that no one has set himself to elucidate "the fatal diseases of great men, and suggests it would bo an inter esting study to discover what men llko Mozart, Addison, Cromwell, or Spinoza died of. We recommend this as a mild re creation for influenza convalescents. It has been stated that with regard to tho Tat-su Maru incid...
