By \ Eudden.inspiration he seized an irrtc roller and'daubed some ink on his (ace, quite covering the discoloura uion. Presently the governor came In, and, with the foreman, went, through the room, commenting on every detail, and looking very sharp ly at evory workman.

He very proud of them, but in a week or so the chickens began to die. He called in a neigh bour, to look at the chickens, and offer advice. They were certainly a pretty scaly lot of chickens that the neighbour viewed. They were skin ny-looking, and apparently without ambition. " What did ycr feed them on ??

SUNFLOWER SEED. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 9 January 1914

SUNFLOWER S.EED. There tire very fow districts in whicl tiio sunflower cannot bo oasily grown. The. yield of seed is vory heavy, and it is a splendid food (or poultry. The seed may bo sown in drills, 3ft. apart, and the .strongest plants only be al lowed to stand for growth (soy) about ISin, in the rows. No spotiol culture is roquirod, ex cept that tho crop bo kept clean—that it be not oxhausted by weeds. If a little "hilling" or oarthing up be given when the crop is 3 or 3ft. high, so much 'the better. The variety yielding the largest quantity of oil per bushel is the larga black ; but as the smaller striped Russian is a much uioro prolific orop per, it is considered tho more profit able on> to grow. The r*Unu» from crops of this variety, cultivated as above, were on an averayo £15 per acre, the seod of grata being .sold for poultry food, and not. for oil attrac tion, in which, respect- tlwra ia »o wl« at present.

CHARLES ROCK 42 Gladen Street, East Brunswick, for 33 years in ihc Melbourne Tramway Company, writes tins letter (2 4/12), which is of spccial interest to all Rail way and Tramway men, to CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. "In December, 1911,1 caught cold and serious pleurisy. For three days my temperature was 104 degrees. My life was des paired of, but through taking the doctor's advice I live to-day, he advised my wife to get Clements n_ Tonic, as 'THERE WAS LIFE IN THAT MEDICINE.' They ■ were the truest words he ever uttered, and I would have been dead only for that grand medi cine. My wife paid 2/3 for the small bottles, had she paid £40 she would have had good value. I have seen a lot of letters about CLEMENTS TONIC in books j and papers, but what I find fault v/ith is that every writer has utterly failed to give the proper value of that medicine.

SPORT AND PASTIME. CRICKET. On New Year's Day a team representing Leongatha jour neyed to Inverloch for the pur pose of meeting a team from Tarwin Lower. The match proved to be very interesting, and a close finished was witnessed, Leon gatha being victorious by a small margin of 24 runs. The visiti.ig cricketers were out for more than cricket, for on the arrival of the drag from Leongatha the first thought was for the water, and all had a dip in the briny with the exception of one, who remarked that seeing he._was not gifted with scales he was quite satisfied to sta^ on the shore. Dinner was then indulged in, and aft^r the 18 mile drive and a dip in the salty this part of the performance proved to be very necessary. The match commenced at 3 p.m., which was rather late, but some of the Tarwin players were acci dently hindered through mis arrangements. Mesley 55, Bond 20, Mogg 14, and Richards 8 did best for Leongatha; whilst for Tarwin Lower the chief scorers were Secomb 24, Thomas 1...
