WOOL PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 17 February 1914
WOOL PRO8PECTS. With the genieral trade of the woild actve, and every prospect of remain ing so, there should be a stroug con sumptive demand for wool-during the ooming year. Labor in the Old World is well employed at better wages the world's wool requirements continue to increase, while there will be a great shortage of wool in- manufacturing centres before the end of the present calendar year,' and only moderate sup plies for 1914. .,Wool will be admitted into the United States of America duty free, and it wil not be very long be fore that great wool-using nation will require a great proportion of Austra lia's clip. Owing to great financial stringency in the U.S.A., it is, quite possible that they will not take a great amount of wool during the com-, ing season; but they are so short of stocks that they muist purchase some, and later on they. will require d large quantity.

RANCID BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 17 February 1914
RANCID BUTTER. Bacteria oil certain kinds are uin doubtedly the most offensive agents in making butter rancid, but it may also. be caused by oxidation, due to the ac tion of light and air. Any kind of un cleanliness in the dairy will at onoe tend to produce rancidity in the pro duce. The use of impure water for washing up the dairy utensils, failure to. wash the butter, in the grain suffi ciently, the use of milk from dirty, cows, or milk which contains colostrum as yielded by freshly-calved cows, all these causes help to make butter rancid. 41o doubt the commonest cause of rancidity is failure to wash sufficiently the butter in the grain. The casemnous matter, oi buttermilk, if left in the butter iu excessive, quantities, will quickly set up decomposition and impart a very strong flavour to the produce. It ca. eisilywbe discovered, whether the wash ing of butter lias been properly per formed or not; all that is necessary is to press gently, but firmly, on a piec~ of the butter with...

LATE SUPPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 17 February 1914
LATE SUPPERS. Late suppers are a common caUQ.9f insomnia, especially that form of it im which people fall into a heavy.. sleep, only to wake with a start an hour or so, later. -Digestion comes almost to a dead stop during sleep, so that suf ficient time should he allowed for the last meal to be dispbsed of before the hour of retiring. This interval should be two hours at least, which often mehtns that half past eight, is,, as a'rure; late enough for the evening meal. In any case, the foo, which-is taken then ought to-be of light nature, and 'hot inleude pork, cold meat, or any other article of diet which is slow of digestion..
OVER DEVELOPMENT OF MUSCLES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 17 February 1914
GVEW UEVELOPMIENT f1 i MUSCLES. I 'lia1 systems of physical training th only naim and object is to maintain health. I cannot agree] with the methods whose aim is to pile up lumps of muscles on every part of the body, a do tor explains. An advertisement showving a man with a biceps like a lug of mutton on his arm is enough to de termine me to have nothing to do wi ii that system. Those muscles are ab solutely nseless unless you wane to g on the music hall stage as a strong man, or Wish to convert yourself int a human carthorse. The strain put on the.heart in the process of acquur ing those disfiguring hunks about .h body counteracts all the good that te exercise might have done. The im portalit organs of the body-the heart:. the lungs, the liver, and the kidneys derive no benefit from abnormal musou lar development. Many trainers h:ave 'a good working knowledge of mu:cu lar development and how to acquire it, bhut theyk Intow nothing about the eart. They cannot use t stetho scope aid ...
AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 17 February 1914
AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. An American expert says of 'Agri culture in the United States:-'"There is good authority for the assertion that the farmer could take from the same area of ground in 'four years grain ;crops as muich as seven yeanrs now give him. leaving the products of the other three years when the land rested from grain, as a clear profit due to better metlhods. He can do far more than that by joining live-stock i-aising with grain raising. Nature has provided c attle to go with the land. . . What our people have to do is to cover less ground, cultivate smaller farms so as to make the most of them, instead of getting a scant and uncertain yield from several hundr,,d acres."

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 17 February 1914
(From o0 Special Correspondent). We all know 'that there is a steady icrese in the population over grown met) polv§rergrown bause of he' dispropoition between its inhabitadits, and the number of the people in the rural dis tricts, 'where - they are wanted. But it is only when the fact is brought into prominence in some striking way that we realise how great and bow rapid the orrwth is. One of these eye-openers is the fact' that despite the vast expan sion, at a huge expenditure, o, the pro visions for water -supply, the demands are right up to the limit of tho supply. On 4th February, 1912, a record con sumption of water was established, with 66,1S4,000 gallons for the day. That record stood until January last, when it was exceeded with 66,230,900 gal lons for, one day. A few days later the enormous quantity of 74,579,000 gallons wds consumed in the day, bring ing the average consumption of water in the metropolis for 22 consecutive days to 56,000,000 gallons per day.

STUFFED ROOMS. Too many tables, too many chairs, too many pictures, curtains, cushions, and ornaments. Too many of every. thing in fact, . Now tlere are three-_ there may be a great-many more-very good reasons for inaking a very loud protest against this unnecessary orowd ing. A crowded room, whether a living or sleeping apartment, is not healthy, is seldom clean, and is never beautiful. Every: axtra piece of fur niture, every curtain or rug, or corner fitted up with shelves and hangings, takes up so' nuch of the, given space in a room, and makes the apartment com paratively airless.;
