Scheme Interested Him. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

Scheme Interested Him. The "Black Hand" Society wrote a man a letter demanding that he put £1000 in a box at the corner of X and Z streets at nine o'clock on Fri day night, or they would blow up the beautiful home of his wife's mother. Instead of the money the man put a note in the box, "Nothing doing in the money line, but the scheme you suggest interests me." Never allow a farrier to rasp off the' outside natural varnish of the foot. This practice will ruin the beat and strongest foot. Pads made frofli pieces of old blankets, saturated with water and buckled around the hoofs, are excellent things to overcome the drying of the feet. Once a visitor was narrating a case he had just heard in court. This was his way of expressing hiB meaning: "At this point," said the narrator, "she broke down and wept scalding tears." "My goodness!" exclaimed a listen er. "She muBt have been boiling over with rage."

HISTORIC STAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

HISTORIC STAINS. , "Visitors to the famous castle of .Wartburg, lit Germany, are always very carefully shown a big black patch upon the wall. . The room "where this stain upon the .wall is shown -was occupied 'by Martin Luther when he was a prisoner in this castle, and here he commenced his famous trans lation of the Bible. The tradition is that Satan appeared to him in this room in order to make certain plaus ible suggestions to the great Reform er. His reply was to take up his ink stand and throw it at his visitor's head; It crashed against the wall, leaving a stain which has been rever ently preserved ever since. . Undoubtedly the most interesting room in Scotland is the sleeping chamber of Mary Queen of Scots, in the Palace of Iidlyrood, which still stands as it was when she occupied it. The walls are hung with tapestry, and half-covered by it is a small door leading to Queen Mary's secret stair. It was by this secret stair in the year 1566 that the assassins of the Queen's Ital...

BLACKIE'S SYMPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

BLACKIE'S SYMPATHY. A delightful story is told, of the grand old professor of whom Edin burgh is so proud. Professor Blackie was lecturing to a new class with whose personnel he was very imperfectly acquainted. In answer to some direction given by the lecturer, a student rose to read a paragraph, his book In his left hand. "Sir!" thundered Blackie, "hold your book in your right hand." And as the student would have spoken, "No words, sir! Your right hand, 1 eay!" The etudent lield up his right arm, ending piteously at the stump of Its wrist. "Sir, I hae nae richt hand," he said, and his voice was unsteady. Before Blackie could open h'.s lips, there arose from the class such a ter rific storm of hisses as one perhaps must go to Edinburgh to hear, and by it his voice was overborne as by a wild eea. . ,Then the professor left his place and went down to the student he had unwittingly so hurt. He put his arm about the lad'B shoulders and drew him close, and the lad leaned up against his b...

A Pill Story. A farmer's wife laid down the mag azine that she had been reading and soulfully sighed. Her husband glanced up from his newspaper. "What's the matter, Maria?" asked the old man. "Have ye finished that story?" "Yes, Henry," answered Maria; "just this very minute." "I- s'pose," said Henry, resuming his paper, "that it ended happy?" "Yfes," answered Maria. "The beau tiful heroine got over a long spell of jllness an', what's more, the story g'ves the name an' the price of the medicine what cured lier."

Circumstances Alter Cases Mrs. O'Mulligan lay very ill in bed and was not expected to live. All the members of the family were call ed to her bedside. They stood around, looking mournful, and taking a sly in ventory of the furniture. "Mike," said the old mother, "you'll remember to give that dresser to .Bridget?" "I will that. I'll remember, sure. Faith, what a memory she has!" "How ginerous she is, the dear creature," xhurmured Bridget, weep ing, and wondering what else she was going to get. "She is, indade," said the rest of the family. "And, Mike, there's the horse for Tim." "No, mother; aye, isn't it wonderful, now? Conscious and raysonable to the last!" "And mind you give my goold watch to Pat, Mike; I've wound it up for him and it's kaping good time. And there is the pig for you, Mike, an'd the cow for Kathleen, and the chest of draw ers for Larry " "Aye, it's marvellous, indade. Her memory is perfect to the end.

EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. Every man muBt study his own soil and crop conditions. Experiment sta tions may practise* from now until the end "of time, and still not be able to answer the question for the individual farmer. Principles can be established, the needs of different crops can be learned, the composition of fertilisers can be determined, chemical and phy sical analyses may show wherein soils differ; but when it comes to the question of the profitable use of fertil isers, each farm, each paddock must answer for itself. That is, careful, intelligent and accurate experiments must be carried on by every farmer, gardener, and orchardist who wishes to settle this point. In all fertiliser experimental work it is important that the land used be as uniform in soil condition and previous manuring and cropping as can be procured. The size of plots may vary according to the nature of the crop from two square rods to one-tenth to one-third of an acre, or larger if desired. The larger ...

FARMING ON BUSINESS LINES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

FARMING ON BUSINESS LINE8. It is quite impossible in these days of' keen competition, and with the high prices ruling for land, cattle, la bor, and all* commercial commodities, to ignore the fact that if the dairy farmer is to make the most of his labors, he must be in the position of knowing, with some degree of cer tainty, just what branch of his busi ness is, from your to year, the most profitable. How can disaster be avert ed if he goes on year after year utter ly, ignorant, not ohly of how much he has made, or is making, from his dairy or other, branches of his busi ness, but what is far- worse, often not possessing a knowledge as to-whether he is making money or losing it. That hundreds of farmers do not find them selves involved in serious financial difficulties is largely due to the pro ductiveness of the land and a tribute ttj their own hard-working industry. If the commercial man, faced on all sides with keen competition, carried 011 his business in the haphazard way the f...

What She Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

What She Wanted. She walked into the public library and sweetly said: "I would like 'The Red Boat,' please." The librarian diligently searched the catalogue and came back with: "i don't think we have such a tiook." Flushing a bit, she said sweetly, "May the title be 'The Scarlet .Yacht?" Again he looked, with the same re sult. Then, with her pretty fingers she dived into her bag, consulted a slip of paper, and said: "Oh, I beg your pardon.. I mean the 'Rubiyat.'" Wished He Hadn't Spoken. The bored youth turned to his din ner-partner with a yawn. . "Who is that strange looking man over there who stares at me so?" he drawled. "Oh, that's Professor Jenkins," she replied airily, "the famous expert on insanity." "According to this paper," observed Mr. Goodwin, "a man has lived a year on beer alone." "Well, that's as it should be," ob served Mrs. Goodwin. "Any man who lives on beer ought to /be compelled to live alone." In San Francisco, a few days ago, a telephone courtship of only an ho...

Thrft. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

Thrft. Sir Archibald Geikie, who has re ceived the coveted Order of. Merit, is a great collector of Scottish anec dotes. One of his best is about a funeral in Glasgow, where a stranger took a J3eat in one of the mourning coaches. The other three occupants of the car riage were rather curious to know who he was, and at last one of them began to question him. The dialogue went like this: "Ye'll be a brither o' the corp?" "Na,. I'm na brither o' the corp." "Weel, ye'll be his cousin?" "Na, I'm no' a cousin." "At ony rate, ye'll be a frien' o' the corp?" "Na, I'm no' that either. Ye see, I've no' been very weel masel'," the vstranger explained complacently, "an' my doctor has ordered me carriage exercise, so I thocht this wad be the cheapest way to fcak'it!"

WHAT QUEEN MARY DISLIKES. The Tango Banned. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

WHAT QUEEN MARY DISLIKES. The Tango Banned. The ultra-smart set has no friend in Queen Mary. With the freak fash ions and the eccentric pleasures of a certain section of society Her Majes ty has no ..sympathy. On more than - . one occasion, indeed, the Queen has expressed her sfrong disapproval of the extremes to which people carry : their1 pleasures nowadays, and she has Bet her face very Btrongly against the periodical crazes in which the elite, in search of new and novel pas times, indulge. - It has 'been known for some time that Her Majesty considered/that the latest dances, particularly the tango, are quite unsuitable for the ballroom, ; and neither at Buckingham Palace nor at houses which Her Majesty visits will they figure on the programmes. . ' Not that the Queen objects to dan cing; indeed, she is very fond of the waltz, schottische, polka and other graceful dances. In her attitude to wards the tango she is supported <by^ King George, who, like the Kaiser, consid...

BEEF GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

BEEF GROWING. "The farmer who increases the pro ductive value of his land, either by restoring soil fertility, or by growing better grains, makes a personal suc cess, and, to an extent, becomes a public benefactor," says the "Farm Bulletin." So said someone whose name we cannot for the moment re member. If this be true of the grain farmer, what can be said of the pro gressive stock raiser? There never was a time when there was so great a need of growing two pounds of beef where only one grew before, as there is at present. Such a marked increase may be possible only in some instan ces, but very great improvement is needed in the cattle of the majority of our grazing farms and stations. Not every -cattle man is in a position to raise pure breds, but none can afford to raise scrubs. And none can afford not to feed up to the animal's full ca pacity. .

PREPARATION OF SHEEP SKINS FOR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

PREPARATION OF SHEEP SKINS FOR MARKET. / In the preparation of sheep skins for market we would like to emphasise the care that is necessary in the tak ing off of the skin and its drying. The utmost care should be taken to avoid cutting or damaging the pelt when skinning. All fat or meat must be cut off, the leg and face pieces remov ed, and care exercised to prevent, any blood or dirt getting, on either the wool or flesh side. As regards drying, it is necessary first to spread out the skins in the shade and finish drying'them either on wires or in sheds where the weath er cannot affect them. Particular care must be taken to dry the points of the skin. The skin should, when properly dried, be folded in two, head to tail, wool outside, and pressed into bund les, weighing about 1 to .1%- cwt. In tying the bundles, it is just as well to see that the rope (or wire, if rope is not obtainable) is tied around each end, so that it is impossible for. thieves to pull out skins during transit t...

REAL BROKEN HEARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

REAL BROKEN HEARTS. The late Sir George Paget, in one of his lectures which were published some years ago under the editorship of his son, stated that in most capes where death is attributed to( "broken heart" no rupture of that organ has actually taken place, . although un doubtedly mental troubles do fre quently cause disease of the body. He mentioned an actual case of broken heart which was cited by Dr. J. K. Mitchell, of the. Jefferson Col lege, Philadelphia. In an early period of his medical caVeer, Dr. Mitchell acted as ship's doctor to a vessel sail ing, from Liverpool to one of the American ports. He became on very good terms with the captain, who was eagerly anticipating the return voy age because then he was to be mar ried to the lady of his choice. He had brought many costly jewels to pre sent to the lady as bridal gifts. So oftenvdid the captain discourse upon the lady, land her charms, that Dr. Mitchell became wearied, and avoids ed him-whenever he could. When the ship ...

Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

Obituary. The death occurred on Tuesday night at 11 o'clock, of Lismore's oldest resi dent in the person of Mr T. E. Sey mour, at the age of 81 years. He had been ailing for the past'three months, and the end was therefore not unex pected. Mr Seymour was a native of Broxbourne, England, and came to the colonies in 1852. He landed in South Australia, and for a short time was on escort duty in the Police department. When the rush set in for the diggings j he came to Victoria, and took part in i the Ararat, Bendigo, Dunolly and other rushes. In 1862 he went to Geelong to get married, and made his home at Lis more, where he continued to reside with his wife and family until his death.
