LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 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 of our farms, we find 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, are 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 be 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 only does it answer every requirement of a green manure, but is is also one of the most valuable of the standard crons. Y'ou may be cropping a given piece of land to lucerne, obtaining each year from five to seven cuttings, and at the same time you have at hand the means of restoring the fertility of the soil upon w...
COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. There are certain people in the world whom the more you think of the less you think of them. Surely it Isn't extraordinary to get pearls out of a matchbox. Lots of girls have got diamonds out of mugs before now. According to a Paris paper, "Seventy per cent. of the French people live in one room." But it must be a jolly big room. A Russian dwarf of 4ft. has, we learn, fallen in lore with a St. Peters burg lady of 6ft. 21n. That's not fall ing in love-that's climbing up to it, "It is rare Indeed," says a contem porary, "that a householder can get a shock from his electrical installa tion." He generally gets that when the bill comes along.
THE KHEDIVE AND THE AMERICAN SALESMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
THE KHEDIVE AND THE AMERICAN SALESMAN. An amusing reminiscence of the 1- present Khedive of Egypt is told by y Mr. E. Alexander Po'ell, late consular II representative of the United States at h Alexandria, in his book, "The Last I Frontier." Mr. Powell says he re 1 ceived a call from the chairman of a an American firm whose special line Sof business was the manufacture of I agricultural and well-drilling machin ery. Mr. Powell's visitor explained that as he was passing through Egypt t he thought it might be possible to ob t tain an audience with the Khedive: Agriculture and its attendant prob i lems of irrigation and fertllisatlon constitute tie sole hobby and amuse iset of the present Khedive, Abbas Hlilml. He is consequently a ready and liberal purchaser of all improved types of agricultural machinery, whiich he puts to practical use on his great estates. The request of my compatriot was duly transmitted to the grand master of ceremonies, and shortly thereafter a reply reached me ...
A BERESFORD IN WAR-TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
A BERESFORD IN WAR-TIME. Tile Beresfords have all been fa mous for the courage that iborders on recklessneness. Lord \Villliam Beres fordl served in the Zulu War in 1879, winning thle V.C., and in his book, "Campaigns of a War Correspondent," Mr. Melton Prior relates some striking stories of him: In the retreat Lord William Beres fordt, turning around, saw the four legs of a vwhite horse kicking in the air, RIealising at once that it belonged to one of our men, he rode straight for it, and found that the horse had been shotit and that the rider had fallen half stunned. "Get up!" Lord William said to the man, but he seemed to dazed to an swer; whereupon Lord William said, "If you don't get up at once I will lump down andl punch your head!" -at which the man did rise slowly. Lord William succeeded in helping hiim oni to the horse behindl him; once mounted, the man clutched Beresford around the waist, and so they gallop ed off. All the time this was taking place the Zulus were firing f...
Avolding Eye-Strain. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
Avoiding Eye-Strain. Eye-strain is said to be largely a defect of civillsation. To counteract it, children should be encouraged to use their eyes at long range. A teacher who has a surprisingly small amount of eye-strain among her pupils attri butes it to her practice of making the scholars drop their work at the end of each hour and look out of the win dow. There is a contest as to who can see the farthest. This rests and trains the eyes and teaches observa tion. A woman who does fine sewing for her living found her eyes strained and weak. She was advised to drop her sewing every half-hour and look for t minute into space. Relief was qluick, and the eye-strain disappeared. Short-sighted people who holdt their book or work close will ease eye strain and lengthen their vision if they frequently. remove tlheir glasses end look at some object on the behort zon. The long-distance training will not, however, relieve eye-strain that comes front astigmatism, reckless dis regard of the eyes...

Too Much for the Ghost. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
Too Much for the Ghost. Archbishop Tijomson once 'laild" a ghost in a very simple way. Staying at a country house with traditions of a family ghost, he was put up for the night in the "haunted chamber." In the morning his hosts were anx ious to know if he had seen anything. "Oh, yes," he replied; "about twelve o'clock I heard a knock at the door. I said, 'Conme in, come in.' " "And did he come?" "Yes; an old sallow-looking man." "Yes, that Is our ghost! What did you do?" "I got out of bed and asked if he belonged to the house. He nodded as sent. I asked him if hlie were a par ishloner. He nodded again. Then I said, :I am anxious to build some new schools; ,will you give me a subscrIlp tion?' He disappeared and I saw him no more!"
THE ANTIQUITY OF HAIRPINS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
THE ANTIQUITY OF HAIRPINS. lHairlins have been elaborated as a means of ldecoration since the earliest times. Particularly beautiful is the (ellcacy of their workmanship, two of ithe llltesl specimens being the gold pins which were found at Salamis in Cyprus, and are now in the British Musclumll. Even more handsome were the Saxon pins of a later date, with tlhcir shank of brass, head of gold, and embellishlment of garnets and pearls. There were, too, the larger sort of pins so conspicuously and fre quently mentioned in the Bible. The insilrument driven by Jael through the tetmlle of Sisera was probably a tent pin, while Delilah fastened the web on Samsonl's hair with a pin or batten. Iln the Middle Ages pins were a great fashion-i-ndeed a necessity~ in Flrance, and we have it on record that in 1347 tiwelve thousand pins were removed from the royal wardrobe for one of the lFrench princesses. The convenielnce was probably a little later in reaching England, but in 1510 we hear of Quee...
Too True. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
Too True. There is a happy mean in every thing. It is said that a shrewd old la?dy heat3d..her marrle4 ilaughter say: "If Inty htlsband doesn t do"esucu AU such a thing, he'll find himself In hot water." "My child," said the old lady, "a Iman is like an egg. Kept in hot water a little while he may boil soft, but keep him there long and he hardens!" Each high achievement is a sign and token of tlhe whole nature's pos sibllity. What a piece of thile man was for that shining moment it is the duty of the whole man to be always. The discovery of happiness may well be thile great aim of wisdom; and we needs must be happy our selves before we can know that wis dom itself contains all.

Impure Air and Scrofula. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
Impure Air and Scrofula. The atmosphere of all rooms should be frequently renewed by proper ven tilation. The best method of accom ,lishing this has been for many years a subject closely studied by sanitar ians. In rooms, and especially in bed rooms, the fireplace should always bo left unclosed. The windows should be pulled down from the top, and up from the bottom. All rooms, and es pclally sleeping apartments, should be well aired during the day. Impure air in bedrooms is considord by emin ent medical authorities to be one of the most potent causes of consumption J.P.? scrofula.

HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Supperl. Late or heavy suppers are a .com mon cause of insomnia, especially that form of it in which people fall into a heavy sleep, only to awake with a start an hour or two later and find themselves unable to sleep again until early morning perhaps. Digestion comes almost to a dead stop during sleep, so that sullicient time should be allowed for the last meal to be dis -posed of before the hour for retiring. This interval should be two hours at least, which means that half-past eight is as a rule late enough for tilhe *evening meal. In any case, the food which is taken then ought to be of a light nature, and not include pork, cold meat, or any other article of diet which is slow of digestion. Coffee and strong tea are unsuitable at this hour, as they tend to cause sleep lessness. Cocoa, made with water, is a much better beverage for use with ti e evening meal or after dit.
DAIRYING. WHY WASH THE UDDER? [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
DAIRYING. WHY WASH THE UDDER? There are many points in clean dairying which, if observed closely would obviate milk contamination, and consequent complaints about, in ferior cream and butter. Here are some points of advice: Washing the cow's udder is fre quently necessary. Should the pad dock in which the cows have been accustomed to lie down during the night be not clean-very few are clean enough-then the udders should be washed before milking. Cows for aging in unclean places, especially during drought, render washing their udders imperative. The cow-yard is usually muddy in some degree during wet weather. As the cow walks to and from the ball she generally makes a beaten paci, and when wet this track becomes a continuous manure track. The cow kicks up on to the udder pieces of this contaminated soil, and tile udder Is thus unclean when milking time begins. Tho milker's hands are often a fruitful source of milk contamlnation cduring the ,)peration of milking. Tile damp, dirty han6...
EXPERIENCE IMPERATIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
EXPERIENCE IMPERATIVE. It requires the same treatment of good judgment and perseverance to succeed in the poultry business as it does in other lines of business. Tllcre are not any more adverse conditions to encounter than there are in other lines. But about the first time a poultry-raiser encounters a really dis couraging thing, his enthusiasm suf fers such a shock as to make recovery doubtful. There is not another busl ness. that .can. be mentioned the pro duct of which Is in greater demand. Then, why should large numbers of people who enter it continue to fail? The greatest reason is because a great majority of those who take up poultry-raising do so without any pre vious knowledge of the business. Theo next great reason is because of the continued problems which come up daily to be solved, and which, if not solved with good judgment, lead to positive disappointment and loss. Thirdly, because profits do not roll in as fast as they had been led to be lieve they would by the extrav...
