A FORCED PROPOSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
A FORCED PROPOSAL. I took her down my garden, to show her my successes as a first-year horti culturist. But she wouldn't be serious; and all the utterances of my pardonable pride were lost upon .the da-I mean the garden air. (Not the gardener I for she knew snothing about gardening. Not she. Or, at least, I had thought so). )i tried to pass my two old plum tre~s. But she wouldn't... "What are these, Mr. Gardener?" '"These are plumn rees, madam." "Dhl Andwhere are the plums '?" "Here they are; one on this tree, and one on that.", "What a-pity they're .asel. If they had both been grown tog they might have made a pearl" She .is having .plum-colored decora tions-to her wedding- outitl: It was necessary to teach--the-white man. that hb must treat the .native with full justice.-Earl of Selhorne,
AN EARTHQUAKE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
AN EARTHBUAKE STORY. The "Kolnische Zeitung" tells this story. A hundred Dutonmen.: under the- command of :a captain: were..em ployedin-'the Java forests. One Jan Piet, a useful soldier with- a taste for brandy was .employed by the captain as clerk. :On entering upon his new duties Jan Piet had to listen-to a long lecture on the folly of; indulging in stronhd-drink, and it.was enjoined upon imthat. he, must give uphis birth day ,elebrations . Jan Piet. was. for the moment impressed; and promised to reform. Then he was told- his duties. Besides writing he. had to brush out the study, wind up-the clock,-and tear off, the calendar. .The captain con cluded by bidding him notice a machine for, registering - earthquakes, which stood by -the wall opposite- the door, and. strictly forbade him to move this seismograph. :The apparatus was quite primitive; it consisted .of .a disc of wood moving in a. socket and covered with glass.. : In the middle of the dise lay .a large clot of quicksilver,...
FODDER RESERVES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
FODDER RESERVES. "I considerit a good praotice (states an-authority) -forfarmers to grow from -10 to 20 aores of barley each year and store the grain:for everyday use. The straw is -short and .the grain yield heavy. The-grain produced on a given area is more valuable as fodder than the amount - of - hat -that could have been -out from it.- By feeding grain with the chaff the :-hay made in the seasons of plenty is made -to last over a longer period -doing away with the necessity for cutting -when the crops are light and there is lees- work and time attached to gathering -the grain. Barley straw can be. cu ' and stacked, it being better for stock than wheaten straw. If grain is used a little of it can be chaffed and mixed with the feed. In Asia, Southern Europe, and Africa horses are fed on nothing -but barley and long straw. Grain can be easily conserved, and straw will remain good for years. In times of drought this should prove a valuable fodder. Dur ing 1912 the working horses of ...
SINGULAR EXPERIENCE AT A SHOW [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
SINGULAR EXPEBIENCE AT A SHOW The annual show of the Mid-Somtr set Agricultural Society maintained the high average of entries, notwitnstanti ing the drought that militated against the cheese and butter-makers. The milk test clas:es provided a re markable experienoe this year, and evidence to farmers that milk may be below the Government stand.lra coming straight from tue cow and nos being adulterated. The waole of tlff exhibits in one class .had to 'e dL qualified, as the milk ?as below Lerv ernment standard. The tests are car ried out under conditions most favor able to the production of the best qua lity of milk, and to ensure that the tests are fairly taken. The exceptiun ally dry weather is, of oourse, reepon sible for the deficiency of the milk; but the significant fact, which has such an important bearing on the milk adul teration question, is that this caref l1 test showed every exhibitor, if he sent this .milk for. sale would have been liable to prosecution. Yet the milk wa...
SOME USEFUL CATCH CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
'tIME USEFUL CATCH CROPS. It is generally a good plan after har vest to grow a catch crop of some kind or another in the stubbles if these are clean. There~ s no use, of course, in trying to grow anything on a foul solo, buh where a field is fairly clean there are four or five crops, each .one of which might be grown with success. The easiest to grow--or, at any rate, the easiest in the south country-is tri folium, as all that is necessary to be' done is simply to cast broadcast some 200 lbs of seed to the acre, by hand if there is no machine available, and har row it in, and after a fall of rain the seed will sprout and you will have a good crop of this particular kind of clover straight away. Another easy crop to sow is white mustard; some 14 Ibs. of seed to the acre is easily broadcasted on the surface in the same way as the trifolium. It will be up and make a good crop in eight weeks, and will be suitable Tor sheep folding, but it is very often sown for the pur pose of. ploughin...
THE HOME FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
THE HOME FABM. "Hoard's Dairyman": - We don't know what the cave man called his cave, but we are pretty sure that he didn't call it "Home.'"' To him it ',as merely a. place to sleep in; a place that kept'out most of the rain. 'Judging from the appearance of some farm houses, the cave mian idea is not aitogether extinct. We see'curiously naked-looking hou ses minus vines, shrubbery, flowers and with just a stretch of bare, sun-baked clay instead of a lawn.. And instead of that essential home feature a broad, cool porch, there is all too often an unfriendly, yard-wide affair that is good for nothing. In such a house dwells the cave man idea.. It is probably very true that the roof keeps out the rain and that it keeps the farmer and hi- family warm enough in the winter. But it is "house" ratner than "home." There is a big difference. , Even the cold, unsentimental page of the dic tionary admits that. It says that a house is "anything that affords shel ter from the elements, while home ...
OF NO AVAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
OF NO AVAIL. The ragged wayfarer trudged up the garden, path bathed in the sun ahine* and took off his hat to the lady at the door. She eyed :.him keenly, and a look of recognition passed over her oountenance. "Look here," she said, "you called at this house -in the middle of the winter." "I did ma'am," he -sorrowfully ad nitted. "And-I gave you a good meal, on condition that you swept the snow out of my back yard." . "That's right, ma'am." " "AZ- ' when au had the meal you wens off without doing it." -The man passed the back of his hand tre'ulbously over his eyes. "Yes, ma'am," he said, brokenly, "and my c-nscienoe smote me. That's why I've tramped all the way back, under the scorching sun to fnish the job!" . *But consciences of such a calibre were not in demand in that neighborhoood just then. and ·A went empty: away.
NOT ALWAYS THE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
NOT. ALWAYS THE CASE. An amusing story of King George when he was a young Prince; is related in "Everyone's Story' Magazsine." He always greatly liked- the old-fashioned London horse-bus. and as a young Prince knew. and patronised every route He himself has- recounted one of . his. adventures: Seated-immediately behind the- driver,- he heard th?'-latter, say.,to a troublesome horse: "Come up, yer Royal 'Ighness, come.upi" "Why do you. give him, that.namePT aked the unknown- Prince. "WVell, y'see, guv'nor," answered Jehu, "that 'oss is so- 'aughty- and lazy and good-for nothing, that--I-well, 1 just-calls 'im 'Is Royal 'Ighness-there ain't nothins' else for it."
RINGS AT WEDDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
RINGS AT'WEDDINGS,. There is a popular idea that a ring made of gold is the only one that can be legally used in a wedding. ceremony Tlhat. is however a falacy. - Any and every,. kind of ring may be used, and, though. gold ones are customary, there is no reason whatever why silver or any commoner metal should not be cal led into requisition.' Numerous ins= tances are on record of runaway-mar riages in which a brass ring has played the all important part, and the legality of the ceremony has never been ques tioned.. - In some cases, a piece of hurriedly tied string has answered the same purpose as have slso. circles cut out of card or paper. It is- only necessary that a ring be used, but of what nature, it is not stipulated.
The Band Sports. ESTIMATED PROFIT, £130 [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
The Band Sports. ESTIMATED PROFIT, £130 New-Year's Day sports and fete, -oranised for the purpose of raising funds for the local brass band, were held under ideal weather conditions, and in the presence of a fairly large gathering of people, thegate receipts for the afternoon being over X22. In addition to an interesting pro graiume of sports, comprising ath letic contests, swimming, chopping, and fire brigade events, the public were provided with a galaxy of amusement in the various side shows. The shooting gallery was a popular rendezvous for the men folk, while the Hoop-la stalls were always surrounded by patronisers, the many valuable articles displayed tempting them to try their skill or luck--with the elusive hoop. Aunt Sally also had a.fair share of attention, and succeeded in earning a few shillings-and many hard knocks-her benificent smile pre vailing in either case. The fire brigade events were well contested, the competitors going through the various duties with a precisi...
A FRENCH SALAD. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
A FRENCH SALAD. Take one, two, or three, of the little round French lettuces. Remove all the darker part of the green leaves that have become.heavy or sodden in appearanoe, either from being kept too long after being cut, or .taat they may have become, slightly gone from moisture. In fact; only keep that ,part- of the leaves "which may be said to be crisp as well as soft, if you can reconcile these two apparently contrary ideas; but you will understand what is meant the first time you take a French lettuce in your hands. Then pull the lettuce to pieces and throw it-into cold "water. When you have got sufficient lettuce leaves, put all the leaves into a olean dry napkin, bring the four corners of the napkin together, and. then shake the contents violently up and down in the air. So long as the napkin con tinues to get moist, the -leaves are not dry. If you persevere with one or two clean cloths, till as you shake the leaves, the cloth does not become damp at all, you will find that t...
AVENEL [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
AVENEL 1 Christmas Day was religiousrl observed and on Boxing Day the majority of the townspeople jour. neyed either to Nagambie to wit. ness the Regatta, or to Longwood for the races, whilst some consider. ed a more profitable day could he passed in engaging in harresting operations. The crops look healthy and a satisfactory yield is expected in the district. Some of the land has been: continually cropped for 40 years ; this could not be done if it were not for the nourishment the manures give to the soil. Though the grass is long and dry it pro. vides good food for live stock. The possibility of fire is causing anxiety and every precaution is being oh. served. The building of the new Church of England is being proceeded with; the walls are nearly completed, also the additional story on the Harvest Home Hotel. The latter will be considerably improv. ed, and when completed will give ample accommodation to travel lers. Mr W. Smilhers Gadd has beenin. vited and consented to give a lim...
THE EXPERT. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
THE EXPERT. The Sultan of Turk y, says the "Ar gonaut," once played a joke at the expense of some medioal.experts at Con stantinople.. When the plague broke out in: his capital, the Sultan asked if anything was known as to the cause. On being informed that it was to be found in the state of the.drinking water, he called at-once for six empty bottles, which he had filled in his presence, all from the same one -of the palace wells, plaoed his own seal upon them and then, with out divulging their community of ori gin handed all 'six to a prominent an alyst. To his amazement the report sent in was that four of the samples contained plague microbes. The fifth was merely putrid water, and the sixth was quite pure. Abdi Hamid calmly shrugged his shoulders, and kept his thoughts to himself. At the last meeting of - the Fitzroy branch of the. Australian Natives' As sociation, Mr. S. G. Marsden Maddock stated that, out of a membership of over 600 only five members were on he. sick-list-a fact...

Irritation of the Skin.I Ever had any irritation of the skinP There "are many forms of it, any of them bad enough to tax your pa tience. Piles, a plague of the night. No rest for the sufferer from that complaint. Hives uon't sound dan gerous, but they cause much misery to those unfortunate enough to be trou bled with them. Eczema, too, the most torturing and obstinate of all skin diseases. But Donan's Ointment is unequalled for every skin disease. No such ailment can resist its heal ing, soothing 'influence. Lots of peo ple know this now. Mrs. E. E. Young, Tristan Street, Seymour, says:--"'For three or four ,months if every year a rash used to come out in my back, between the shoulders, and the irritation was un bearable, it was a burning itch. I obtained a pot of Doan'a Ointment and a few week's treatment oured me of the rash, and I have been free of it ever since. I think there is No thing in the world to compare with Doan's Ointment, and I recommend it to all who suffer,with the ...
THE CARE OF THE STOMACH. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
THE CARE OF-THE STOMACH. When. one considers the amount of talk (writes Sir Robert Wilson) which circles round the stomach-talk in which words like appetite, dispepsia, and indigestion come with an air ot certainty and meaning-it seems strange that the behaviour of the speakers should be so 'haphazard. I have known a doctor spend a- whole half hour in explaining to a lady with gastric ulcers how serious was lier con dition, how doubtful he was whether he was justified in allowing food. to pass at :all into a wounded organ, and exhorting her to remain in bed for a week, and live oitirely upon small meals of B3enger's food; and yet, in less than a week we find her, eased of her pain, tackling a big meal of hot buttered toast and sausages and tea. Trivial incidents of life, things not fraught with serious consequences, re ceive infinitely more thought. That lady, had she been intending to. carry a present of plums to someone, would have been careful to choose a basket of box, or strong...
