LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 8 January 1914

LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER,. Mr. S. P. Keys, writing in "Hoard's Dairyman," says:—When we come to the question of the upkeep of the fer tility o£ our (army, we fiud that we face quite a serious problem. From what source are we to restore the humus, or vegetable matter, that is being rapidly exhausted by continu ous cropping? Manures and commercial fertilisers, while valuable, arc not always obtain able. Farmers waste the barnyard manure, and feel that they cannot af ford to buy commercial fertilisers. To fill the bill there must bo something within easy access of every farm. The answer to this is—green manures. The king of legumes used in green manuring is lucerne. Not ouly does it answer every requirement of a green manure, but is is also one of the most valuable of the standard crops.

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 8 January 1914

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why is it that a newly-engaged girl Is a thorn in the iiesli to all her dis engaged sister women? To begin with—observes a lady correspondent (who is not newly-en gaged)—she is odiously sorry for you because you don't happen to be a betrothed person also. You may have heaps oC chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who over seiz ed upon her first proposal will patron ise you until you feel almost ready to accept aDyone. AVhen she isn't Irritating you, the r.cwiy-engagod girl is rather funny— over the ring more especially. This sacred object for a few weeks appar ently occupies the place of. sun, moon, stars and all light. If it can bo said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. And then, in other ways, she is so hopelessly selfish. But perliapa tho personal vanity of the engaged girl enrages her femiu ine acquaintances more than any of her numerous failings.

AVERTISE IN THE UPPER MURRAY AND MITTA HERALD. HELP YOUR LOCAL PAPER. The greatest aid you can give your newspaper is your job printing. I£ you do not feel able to run an advertise ment, surely you can afford to give the | newspaper your cards, dodgers, bill heads, letter-heads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. The news paper man needs it, and it helps him ( to. pay his printers for setting up the thousand and one free notices he gives you and your town. But don't give it to the printer or job-printing office that can give you no such return, and is spending neither time, money, nor brains in helping you to build up your town. The time may come when a newspaper can live simply upon the re venue derived from advertising and subscriptions, but no ordinary news paper in any ordinary town can exist without the auxiliary support derived from job printing.

In addition to tho personal claim tho district Newspaper possesses, it gives very real advantages from a business standpoint.
