Meeting the Difficulty. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

Meeting ths Difficulty. A good story is told of a 'worthy Quaker who lived in a country town. The friend was rich and (benevolent, and Ills means were put In frequent requisition for purposes of local char ity or usefulness. The townspople wanted to rebuild their parish church and a committee was appointed to raise funds. It was agreed that the Quaker could not he aslced to sub scribe towards an object so contrary to his principles; Ibut then, on the other hand, so true a friend to the town might take it amiss if he were not at least consulted on a matter oi such general Interest. So one of their number went and explained to him their project the old church was to be removed, and such and such steps taken towards the construction cf a new one. "Thee wast right," said the Quak er, "in supposing that my principles would not allow me to assist in build ing a church. But didst thee not say something about pulling down a church? Thee mayst put my name down for a hundred pounds to pull it...

CORRESPONDENCE. HOME RULE QUESTION. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

CORRESPONDENCE. HOME RULE,. QUESTION. (TO THE EDITOR.) SIB,-la your last issue a short letter appears over the nom-de-plume of ( "An TJlsterixmn." I am quite prepared to admit the identity of the above, as there are many in Ulster who would shoot from behind a hedge or stab in the dark. You can find some of the above class,- even in Derry. 1 am never afraid to put my name to any thing I write, or to stand to every thing 1 may Bay. In my "sermon I made it clear that I would' not touch the political aspect of Home "Rule. If I were disposed to look at it from that point of view, the reasons against a kingdom being established in the heart of Great Britain would be most convincing. I spoke from tho religious side of the question; for, deny it who may, tho whole question of Home Rule is a religious one. Your correspon dent rightly states, providing a certain section was to get its own way which is an utter impossibility " Ireland will be a nation," not Home Rule as we have it, but a nati...

"BLACK" CHAFF. RAILWAY MEN STKlKli. The trouble regarding the handling of " black" chuff assumed n grave aspect on "Wednesday at Wagga, wlien the locomotive staff employed on the new railway from Wagga to Tum barumba refused to handle chaff from A. Bruuskill's Allonby Farm. They were in consequence suspended by the resident engineer, Mr G-. 0. Bernerd. Immediately following upon Mr Ber nard's action the whole of the men employed over the entire length of tlje now railway " downed" tools and went on strike. It was thought, local unionists would leave it tp Sydney unionists to make a-^ig strike when i tlie produce reached Sydney. When 'the driver [left the footplate his place wns taken by Mr Bernard.

! THE DEFENGE ACT. | At the recsnt conference of the Political Labor Leagues of Victoria, a committee was ap pointed to draw up a report relat ing to the Commonwealth Defence Act. A number of important amendments to the Act were drawn up and recommended far ! consideration at the Interstate Conference of Political Labor Leagues, which is to be held at : Adelaide towards the end of the i year- The report is as follows :-j J (1) We are of opinion that a, safeguard should be inserted in the Defence Act against the Con- I tinental practice of "calling to the colors" men out on strike, thereby compelling them to re turn to work under military penalties. (2) That the Defence Act should be so amended us to clearly set forth that the object) of creating a citizen defence force based upon universal compulsory training and service, is for the purpose of defending the Com monwealth against possible foreign aggression ; and therefore utuW no circumstances should any person so enrolled be com pe...

GRASS FIRE AT LEARMONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

GRASS FIRE JVT LEAR . 'MONTH.. A 'fire which caused considerable damage to grass and fences between Langi Kal Kal Station and Waulirn, occurred on Good Friday, something like 3000 acres, principally through tho Ercildouno Estate, being burnt. A strong wind was blowing straight from tho south and the fire burnt with terrific force. Nothing was known of the outbreak at the Ercildouno homestead until] the flumes wore in ! tho immediate vicinity, and then, al though tho employes turned out in strong torce, littlo could be done to stop the progress of the fire. The residents of "VVaubra having been ap prised of the coming danger, turned out in large numbers, and only for their efforts the damage would have been considerably augmented. Tho flames got within 15 feet of the out buildings of Mr Thomas Miller, who I had all of his year's produce in grain in a barn, and a fine house owned by Messrs M'Queen Bros, wns also saved by as many feet. The flames wero prevented from crossing the Adding...

A GENEROUS OFFER. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

A GENEROUS OFFER, A young man of serious mien and robust appearance walked into the oasualty -ward at Melbourne Hospital on Tuesday night and said he wished to see a doctor. The attendant asked the usual question as to the nature of' the "patient's" ailment or injuries, The young man declared that there was nothing -whatever the matter with him, but, nevertheless, he insisted upon seeing a dootor. He was taken to Dr.* Southey, to whom he said, in all apparent seriousness, " Do you happen to want any blood-human blood ?" The doctor replied that he was ot peaceful disposition-wonted no man's blood. But, at; the same time, he was constrained to inquire what the stranger meant by the question. The young man said there was no particu lar significance attached to his ques tion. Ho whs actuated by a purely philanthropic motive. He felt so full otr blood that lie thought that the loss ot' a few pints would not do him any harm, and that perhaps his blood might bo used to the advantage of hos...

How Manures Act. SUPER AND POTASH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

How Manures Act. SUPER AND POTASH. It iB now found that the appli cation of a mixed manure con sisting; of phosphates and potash saltB yields better results than when the two ingredients are applied separately, and this, has been especially remarked of mixtures of Thomas phosphate or other potash salts. The action of the salt has the effect of ren dering the phosphoric acid more quickly available; thus the per centage of citrate-soluble phos phate in the Thomas phosphate rose Irom 6 to 10 per cent, in the mixture. Common salt, muriate of potash, and sulphate of potash, all acted in the same way. Similarly the fertilising effect of bone meal was increased by ad mixture with salt, so that it may be,regarded,- as a fact to be acted . upon that Thomas phosphate and bona meal . are ^rendered more; quiokly available as plant food by .being mixed with potash salts, or even common salt. It is further proved that lime has sometimes an unfavorable ef feot on the action of bone meal. By mixing...

TAKE A HOT FOOT-BATH BEFORE GOING TO BED. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

TAKE A HOT FOOT-BATH BEFORE GOING TO BED. There is a riiode of using hot wa ter, which is an exceedingly valuable one, according to the late Sir Hen ry Thompson in "Diet in Relation to Age and Activity." It is the habit of taking a hot foot-bath every night before going to bed, for about ten or twelve minutes as iiot as it can be borne. The effect of this on the feet, which should be immersed over the ankle, is to fill their vessels with blood rendered apparent by their deep red color-and this affords relief, by withdrawing it from the brain. Es pecially after intellectual activity re sulting from public life, etc., as above referred to, also after prolong ed study or literary labor at night, the tranquillising effect on the ner vous system is very remarkable, and uiet sleep is promoted. Let the high est temperature which can be borne be maintained for at least ten minutes by repeated small additions from the hot-water can close at hand. According to Paris statistics, out of 2,525 w...

A LAKE OF SOAP. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

A LAKE OF SOAP. ' One of Nature's marvels is to be seen in the north-east corner of the State of Washington. It is a lake which bears the name of Soap Lake, and is three miles in length by one mile in breadth. The water in the lake tastes like a mixture o£ soap and salt, and its peculiar properties are such that when the water is heat ed no soap is required for a bath, for as soon as the water comes In contact with the natural oil of the skin, and is gentlyirubbed, it forms a ljeautiful lather. The only drawback is that when applied to the head, one's hair 16 apt to turn from \its natural color to a dusty red, if not washed with fresh water. In other words, it bleaches, the soda in the water no doubt be ing the, cause of this. The Soap Lake is well known throughout America on account of its wonderful healing properties. In deed, it is asserted that its waters provide a cure for all the ills the fleBh is heir to. Rheumatism, skin diseases, stomach and blood disor ders-all seem to giv...

STRANGE HONEYMOONS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

STRANGE HONEYMOONS. Surely one of the Btrangest was that o£ an American' couple who, in June of last year, set out from New York harbor on a honeymoon trip to the Bermuda Islands in a tiny "cockle shell" boat some 12ft. long by 3ft. broad. No less thrilling a honeymoon ex perience was that of a Mr. and Mrs. Edgar, who were married in Peking in the Legation chapel, on the day preceding that on which the Boxer riots broke out, and who, perforce, had to spend the first few weeks of their married life prisoners in the in vested city, witnessing many of the horrors of the rebellion, and going in daily fear of assassination. Another couple on the Continent, immediately after the marriage knot was tied, started off toy balloon for England. Leaving Paris at four o'clock in the afternoon, they man aged to land across the Chan nel the following morning, after a somewhat exciting time among the clouds. Then an adventurous pair of Swiss lovers, both keen mountaineers, chose the summit of Mont B...

BADLY-DRESSED QUEENS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

BADLY-DRESSED QUEENS. [ It has been often asserted by those who know that scarcely one royal lady In Europe is really well dressed. Some of the younger royalties wear dresses too old for their years, and some of the older garb themselves in a fnshlon that is too young. The Empress of Germany is the best-dressed woman on a European llirone. fane does not <buy her dresses in Paris, 'but in Berlin, London and Vienna. Counting every item, the Kaiserin spends about £2000 a year on dress. The Queen of Holland is said to be the worst-dressed sove reign. In spite of this, she manages to spend about twice as much on her clothes as does Queen Mary. The former spends about £4000 a year, whilst the latter spends, on an aver age, about £2000. Queen Wilhelmina is" accused of showing very bad taste in the choice of her frocks and hats. However, she has some excuse, for in loyalty to her own country she only employs Dutch dressmakers, and who ever heard of a noted Dutch moiliste? The coK...

STOCK RATSING. FUTURE OUTLOOK. Dr Cameron, .Director of Agricul- . fcuro, states that tlif. high prices' re. cently obtained in Great Britain and tho improved demand for high-class beef cattle indicated tho necessity for mooting the increased requirements of tho world's meat supply. The other day a cable was published intimating that the meat-eating habit had largely increased throughout the world during recent years. Millions of people in countries previously non-meat-eating now used meat food. It was apparent that meat distributors would : have to look to oversea dominions to maintain the supply. Along with the meat-eating increase in the world I there appeared to bp a shortage of I meat supplies. The improved prices J obtainable were reflected in the I Victorian markets. At Echuca, 32a 6d per head bad been paid tor cross bred wefchers; while bullocks had realised £16 per head at Newmarket, These prices approximated to the prices ruling in England, They in choated the time "was co...
