FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915

FOOTBALL. The football match beween Ramblers and Archie's Creek was a aquatic dis play, played in torrents of rain. Ram blers had an easy win, the scores being Ramblers, 9 goals 24 behinds ; Archie's Creek; 2 goals 4 behinds. Other clubs might copy the splendid system of Ramblers with advantage to football. If the Archie's Creek team could have more practice together they would make a big bid for premiership. At a meeting of members held on Saturday last, Mr. J. D. Daly was ap pointed vice-captain of the Wonthaggi Fire Brigade Football Club. Saturday last was anything but suitable for outdoor amusements. Boisterous weather prevailed, and only a small gathering of enthusiasts at tended to witness the football match between the Ramblers and Archie's Creek, which was played on the Won thaggi Sports Ground. The competition match between the Fire Brigade and St. Joseph's, which was to have been played on Satutday last, did not take place. Owing to the absence of tho umpire, who missed th...

BREEDING FOR MORE EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

BREEDING FOR MORE EGGS Pure bred fowls lay more eggs and of greater uniformity hi shape and color than mongrels or crossbreds. One should constantly try to build up his flock if ho would be uniformly success ! fnl in ' egg-production. I'rof. Henry Jf. | Lewis, of the Now .Jersey (U.S.A.) /Ex periment Station, says that this can be. done bv selecting only the best females from (bo entire stock, by mating them to good* vigorous males, and by using this special mating as a breeding pen from which all eggs.lor hatching should bo saved. In this way one' will get a coutinu* ous improvement :? that '"would not be assured if the entire flock wero used to proprogato the future layers. The prac tice of making special breeding pens is .bound to result in larger, more vigor ous birds, botter layers. and more pro fit. . ." .; /. , A word ot' warning is given to vise great care in selecting the breeding pen so as not to include any birds which are lacking in constitution or have shown any disease...

PETROLEUM JELLY FOR THE TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

PETROLEUM JELLY FOR THE TEATS. x An Australian dairyman who has earned a reputation lor producing milk that keeps sweet unusually well, gives his method of milking as fol lows:- ? . ? i "How do we do this?- you may en quire. Not by any red tape, white suit, covered pail, or dry-teat milking. Wo conduct too large an v establishment to waste time or money in gingerbread extras. ".When a dairyman tells me that ho practices dry teat milking, I know that he either does not milk cows himself, or does not stato facts, j It is physi cally impossible to milk any herd of l'ow.S ami keep their teats dry. There are a few cows in every herd that can be milked with dry teats, but they arc exceptions. "1 visited a dairy herd some time ago that advertised in a neat booklet that they milk with dry hands. The pro prietor of this herd is a stickler in his methods, but "all the same I saw his men wipe their hands on their overall legs repeatedly to keep them dry when milking ehort^-teated cows. .

WHAT WAR MEANS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

WHAT WAR MEANS. . The processes of war are exceedingly painful . experiences, not alone to the individual, but in the national life. There is sacrifice of a severe kin^l; the best men (physically), the best of equipment and food are necessary to win battles. All of this means a diver sion of resources from their natural to those of retrogression and malevo lence. The unusual strain, also, made channels of progression and beneficence under extreme pressure is responsible for a relapse into less than normal con ditions. Again, thero comes tho de struction of property, the neglect of the ordinary means of development, and a hundred other things that cause loss and distress. This iB, of course,' the worst side of the war, without any reference to the feelings of wounded men 'or of widows and orphans. It if, characteristic, however, of British peo ple to look on the bright side of things, and to find, if possible, the best means of recovery from adverse conditions. We in Australia are be...

THE £ s. d. OF DAIRY FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

THE £ s. d. OF DAIRY FARMING. How many farmers realise that where hired labour (hand milkers) are em ployed on a dairy farm it costs at least £10 per cow for labour and grazing every year, and the farmer receives no profit until the cow has produced £10 worth of butter-fat If a farm cost ing £30 per acre will carry one cow to every 2acres, tho value of land re quired for each cow is £75, and for 15 cows the value is £1,125. The average milker milks 15 cows, and in wages and food, etc., he costs £2 per week. The annual cost of keeping 15 cows is: Wages, £2 per week for 52 weektf, £104; 6 per cent, interest on £1,125, £67/10/-; total, £171/10/-. This is equal to nearly £11/10/- per cow. Let us call it £10 per cow. Of courso almost every farmer receives money for his calves and pigs, but this money is not suffeient to pay for the necessary manure, horse feed, fencing, cropping, rates, etc.; but if we say that one sets off the other it leaven the main item of wages and in terest on one ...

BACON CURING ON THE FARM. CUTTING UP THE CARCASS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

BACON CUBING ON THE FARM. CUTTING UP THE CARCASS. When thooughly stiff and cool, the head should first be removed and the carcass cut into two sidos by splitting down the back from the tail to the neck with a choppor. The methods of cutting up a pig vary according to loca lity. In the south of England it is usual to cut out the belly piece first; in Cumberland the spine is generally removed in one piece, accompanied by the breast-bono and the two small ribs nearest the shoulder. The old Ayr shire curers split the carcass down the middle and afterwards hung up the two sides by hooks thrust through the gammon hocks. In the ordinary way, when the head has been removed, tho backbone should be cut out, and re moved very carefully, so as not to take too great a proportion of lean meat; if thick chines aro taken, much of the lean meat of the back is removed at the same time, so that a fat rasher is produced as compared with that from a medium pig, where there is a fair proportion of fat an...

NEW INDUSTRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

NEW INDUSTRIES. There are several industries which, though not of exciting prospect have nevertheless an important bearing on the productive capacities of a new coun try. One of these is the extraction of Geranium oil which has been practically confined to the Kiviora and Algeria. The iYeneh people have their difficulties, due to frosts, and the necessity of continual planting. The common Geranium is cut two or three times a year, and yields an oil that is used an a high-class porfuine. Presumably the Riviera is almost desti tute of its annual product at this time because of the disruption of peaceable industries on the Continent. Algeria is for enough removed from the scenes of operation to be still growing the plant, but there is just reason why Australia might with some justification tako a hand in what would find profitable em ployment for "women and children. Tho trouble, of course, is to find a market; but surely in a land such as ours that is open to an experiment that offers...

Correspondence. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondence under this heading.—Ed.] TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

Correspondence. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondence under this heading.-Ed.] TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS. Sir,-I tvust you will allow ra » space in your widely circulated journal to bring under the notice of ratepayers the unjustifiable determination of our civic fathers in refusing to entertain a request from the sanitary employees for a small increase in their salary. The explanation given, to my way of thinking, was sufficient evidence to convince our councillors that such an increase was warranted. When it is taken into consideration the many ob jectionable responsibilites which have to be faced by these em ployees in the proper fulfillment of their duties, I venture to say that 10s per day is miserable recompense for their labour, about which it carv be said there is nothing fascinating, nor is there a semblance of honor and glory attached to the job. Such arduous work demands better wages and better conditions for tlie men, and a small increa...

NEW IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

NEW IMMIGRATION. Already wo have referred to the pro-! speet of an increased number of immi grants when matters European have settled down once more to sensible bnsi- ! u'ess. After the destructive element I has done its worst, ravaging the homes and towns of the working population, ] thoro will bo need of a rebuilding and 1 replenishing to such a costly extent that many who are able to get away for ever from the scones of desolation and disaster will undoubtedly do so. Already longing oyes are looking this way, for Australia presents an inviting aspect to tho willing worker. There is not the fear of a Zeppelin scourge or any of those periodical visitations of armed forccs that harass and destroy the workers and their work. The civi lising influence will work in one direc tion if not another, and it would seem as though one of these days the fight ing machines will be confincd to cer tain areas in which they will find little beyond similar madliines with which to grapple.

San Remo. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

San Remo. The rainfall registered in San Remo for the first three weeks of May was live inches. - The proposed withdrawal of police protection from San Reino is strongly resented locally. Though the record of local crime is practically nil, no one can say what will happen when it becomes known for miles around and even in Melbourne, that malefactors may find a haven of rest for three parts of the year in San llemo. A petition to the Chief Secretary against the removal of the police r-tation has been extensively signed by residents of the shire. It is pointed out that San llemo is the only placc in the shire on the mainland that has two hotels1; that the local constable haS always been'employed as clerk of courts, wharf manager and inspec tor of fisheries ; that there 'arg 2.0Q0 visitors in the tourist season and a large number of fishing boats constantly calling ; that San llemo has daily communication with Melbourne by steamer and railway by two separate routes ; that the township ...

Mrs. JoneB got all her lurnlsliings for her tent at the Melbourne Furnish ing Co., Graham St. Wonthaggi. i^ ABOON TO MOTHERS. Among all classes of people we find children suffering from weak kidneys. The intelligent mother knows that this is not a habit, and searches for a remedy. It is something very hard to relieve, and the family physician tells her that the child will grow out of it in time. Sometimes they do, and sometimes they do not. In the mean time, annoyance and embarrassment are the result. If anyone knows. a remedy is it not an act of charity, is It not a duty, to make it public? Should selfishness and pride keep it concealed? Mrs. Goss, . of Korum burra, has used Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills in her family, and makes the following statement for the benefit of anxious mothers, and the relief of interesting little children: Mrs. S.

The pain I t,?uffered prevented me from getting much or sleep. After trying various medi cines with little or only temporary relief, I was advised to give Warner's Safe Cure a trial. I did so, with the greatest pos sible benefit. The medicine entirely ro moved all pain, and freed my system from this most painful complaint." Warner's Safe Cur...

FIRE BRIGADE v. RAMBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 28 May 1915

FIRE BRIGADE v. RAMBLES. The above match, which took place on the recreation reserve on Saturday last, was looked forward to with much interest on account of the reputation held by the Ramblers and the possi bility of the Fire Brigade {a new team) proving themselves equal to the occasion of being victorious. Both teams were well supported, and the match was well contested throughout. The attendance was not as large as might have been expected, although the weather conditions were most suitable. .Each team were fully con fident of success, and although the Ramblers were a much lighter 'com bination than their opponents, no great amount of surprise would have been caused had the decision been in their favor. Had the "boolers".on the Ramblers side usc-d more judgment and accuracy in finding the big opening, probably a different tale would have been unfolded at the finish. gamblers won the toss and preferred kicking against the wind for the first quarter.
