LIFEBOATS IN SUIT-CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
LIFEBOATS IN SUIT-CASES. "Carry your own lifeboat" is the motto of an Italian inventor, Mr. G. Pipenjo, who has what is probably the most ambitious marine life-saving ap pliance on record. When not in use the apparatus is packed into what looks like a man's suit-case, measuring 24in. by 16in. by Sin., and weighing 201b. Whe-i disas ter is imminent, the passenger bungs the suit-case on deck, breaks the seal, and the apparatus opens out and be comes a small boat. If it is necessary to abanJoa the ship the passenger steps into his pri vate boat, closes the outer cover, and launches his craft by hurling himself overboard. Then, according to Mr. Piperno, the apparatus rights itself in the water, the top cover is thrown open, and .the occupant finds himself sitting in an absolutely unsinkable ship.

Concerning the New Model "VEGA" Wo arc- continually being asked how we can sell such a HIGH-CLASS SWEDISH SEPARATOR—an excellent skimmer, beautifully finish ed and mechanically per fect—at such an EX TREMELY LOW PRICE. The reason is obvious. Our organisation "carries no passengers"—every man on our staff is a worker and earns his money—and we can therefore afford to sell the "Vega" at a reasonable margin of profit. Besides which, up-to-date farmers and dairymen KNOW the "Vega," and we are selling them by hundreds.

Four Breath [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
Foui Breath &lt; Tiicr - old . saying that "distanco ■ locus'-•.cricbantment" . was nc\ er more aptly to ilie point than when applied to those people whose breath is . laden with evil-smelling and offensive odours. Many persona appearv most attractive at a- dis tance, But' produce a feeling of pity 'and disgust when close to, because of the condition of their breath. For instance it makes little difference liow beautiful a woman may be, or how charming her manner, if iier breath is foul; her charm is | gone, and she is at a disadvantage j whenever she comes in contact with ; other people. Foul breath in wo man arouses in man a feeling of re pugnance and a desire to get out of the company of such a woman as quickly as possible, and even women will avoid her. It is, therefore, im portant for every woman who val ues her personal attractions to take tsuch care of herself that this un pleasant and unnecessary complaint •'is avoided or corrected. Men, wom en, and children who are ...
COLD IRON BITS FOR HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
COLD IRON BITS FOR HORSES. "An Experienced Horseman" in the "Kentucky Live Stock Record," re minds those who have the handling of horses of the cruelty of which they may be carelessly guilty:— "Let anyone who has the care of a horse these cold, frosty mornings, deliberately grasp in his hand a piece of iron; indeed, let him touch it to the tip of his tongue, and then let him thrust the bit into the mouth of the horse if he has the heart to do it. The horse is an animal of nervous organ isation. His mouth is formed of deli cate glands and -tissues. The temper ature of the blood is the same as in the human being, and, as in man, the mouth is the warmest part of the body. Imagine, we repeat, the irri tation that would be to the human, and, if not the same degree, still the suffering to the animal is very great. And it is not a momentary pain. Food is eaten with difficulty, and the irri tation repeated day oy day, causes loss of appetite and strength. Many j a horse has become worthless...

Dumbalk Association. TARWIN v. DUMBALK [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 25 June 1914
Dumbalk Association. TARWIN v. DUMBALK The above match was played at Dumbalk on Saturday last. The weather was fine, and as a consequence there was a good attendance of specta tors. Owing to the late rains, the ground was in a very slippery condi tion. Each club had its best team 111 the field. B. Greaves captained the Tarwinites, whilst M'Neill did like duty for Dumbalk. On the bounce of the ball the Dumbalk men forced matters somewhat; and quickly registered firsiv goal. . There was then some even play; the ball being forced from side to side of the ground. The Tarwin men were not playing at their best, and. seemed to be only acting, on the defensive. The Dumbalk lads were going strong, and it was generally believed 'by their bar rackers that they would -'score a win. .This was easy.-to understand as they •were in the first half of the game no less than 2 goals in the lead. The "third quarter opened up in a veiy lively, fashion, as the Tarvvin men were only beginning.to show their...
