Cobram Fire Brigade Sports. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 8 January 1914

CobramJFire .Brigade Sports. The sixth annual sports under the auspices of the local fire brigade were held on Boxing Day under perfect weather conditions, with the result that there was a very good attend ance, although the support accorded to the special train from Mooroupna was not up to expectations. Great interest was taken in the fire brigade events, as it was the first time that the contests were carried out under true demonstration conditions. The recently-laid lix-inch main worked very satisfactorily under a pressure of 451bs to the square inch, and the visiting firemen were loud in their praise of the completeness of the facili ties afforded, which they state are considerably ahead of any other Goul burn Valley fixture. The prizes for the brigade events were well distri buted, every one of the visiting teams securing trophies. The Nathalia team essayed the trip to Cobram per motor waggon, bat when only eight miles on their journey the waggon broke down, and the men had per...

Mary's Lamb Up-to-date. ♦ "Miss Mary was the possessor of a diminutive and immature specimen of the Ovis Aries, a wool-hearing and runiiimnt quadruped, whose flesh is highly esteemed by persons to whose gustatory organs its flavour is agreeable. The shaggy and agglomerated fila ments constituting in their collec tive capacity its natural outer covering, integument, or garment presented to the vision a surface absolutely etiolated and albified, and rivalling in immaculateness the lustrous mantle of crystallized va pour that commonly characterises the-winter landscape. And to whatsoever locality, con tiguous or remote, whither Mary's vagrant fancy, the call of duty, or perchance the parental mandate im pelled her, when not otherwise en gaged, to betake herself, this juve nescent representative of the genus Ovis Aries, with a fidelity remark able in one so immature and inex perienced, could be counted upim with absolute and entire certainty to accompany her.

A number o£ growers have even com pleted their carting, but the bulk of this work is only just commencing and it maybe well towards the end o£ the month before the end is in sight. Thousands of bags are arriving daily. eX the various railway stations in this district, and the deliveries up to date constitute a record. The Railway Department is so far coping splendidly with the traffic, and several special trains have been run to take tho grain away as soon as it is loaded, so that stacking, except on platforms, has been avoided. Everything has gone merrily up to the present, and there is further cause for satisfaction in the cabled announcement on Tuesday that the London wheat market is hardening and has an upward tendency...

A series of motion pictures wero reeled ofT in a darkened room before an audience of prize dogs. First some pictures of a dog chow were run through.

They wok«t up, however, when an elophant eaine splashing into a pool of water and appeared to be walking into the room. A massivo bulldog made a dash for the screen.

LUCERNE. (Medicago Sativs.) (From the Journal of the Agricultural Department of Tasmania). [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 8 January 1914

LUCERNE. (Medicago Sativs.) « (From tho Journal of the Agricul tural Department o( Tasmania). The reuson why this useful and milritiouH fodder is not more genc rally grown here is difficult to understand. Although every work on fodder crops places lucernc at the head of the list, and its area in various parts of ihc Northern Hemisphere, as well as the Argen tine and the mainland of Australia, would seem to indicate that some special reason was underlying tho lack of attention which tho Tas mania!) farmer gives to a valuable fodder and a drought-resisting plant. JiUcerne, or alfalfa, has been known and appreciated for cen turies. In *his "Peclino and Tall of the Konian Kmpire," (Jibbon writes, "The use of artificial grasses became familiar* to tho farmers, both of Italy and the provinces, particu larly the lucerne, which derived its name and origin from Melia."

Doctoring Precious Stones. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 8 January 1914

Doctoring Precious Stones. Under tho cnrcful treatment of a skilful "doctor" u precious stono mny very likely become worth ten times more than its original value. Dia monds, perhaps, have received more attention than any other gems. These are treated generally in order to rid them of a yellow tinge which greatly reduces their value. Pearls lose their vitality and re quire very expert treatment. The outer skin turns black as old age creeps upon them, nn'd this has to be most skilfulty removed by the "doctor." Turquoises often change in co lour from their beautiful blue to a kind of sea-green, and they then have to be skinnud and repolished. Jinnies which get "run down" are improved ill colour and appearance by the application of a certain vege table dye. The "patient" is sub mitted to a course of massage un til the normal glow of good health is maintained. Sapphires generally have , to be reduced in vitality. Their colour ing has frequently to.be softened down by a series • of baths ...
