DISTRICT NEWS. PINE LODGE SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 8 January 1914

. DISTRICT NEWS. PINE LODGE SOUTH. (From our correspondent.) Tho ingathering of the grain for the harvest of 1913 is nearly; com pleted and generally' speaking, thf returns were up to expectations, judging' by the reports one hears at -the ■ railway stations when the teamsters are in with their loads, and the information gleaned is very near the mark. The great bulk of the land undor wheat this year was fallow and well worked under the dry farming system wth the one-Way disc and other cultivators with the result that tho seed was sown in good order, and put in early. During the' winter months .where practicable, most of it was grazeu down with sheep with the very best results. The writer noted some fields in particular, and one of thera his own that were eaten down un til they were as bare as the pro verbial road and then yielded nine bags to the aero. It yyjis also notice able that tho crops not eaten down were not so good—plenty of straw but not so much grain—and it is i thought w...

LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 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 o£ 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 pf 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 crops. You 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 upo...

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 8 January 1914

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why is it that a newly-engaged girl Is a thorn in the flesh 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 j because you don't happen to be a betrothed person also. You may have heaps of chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who ever seiz ed upon her first proposal will patron ise you until you feel almost ready to accept anyone. "When she isn't irritating you, the newly-engaged girl is rather funny— over thq ring more especially. This sacred object for a few weeks appar ently occupies the piace o'£ sun, moon, stars and all light. If it can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. And then, in other ways, she is so hopelessly selfish. But perhaps the personal vanity of the engaged girl enrages her femin I ine acquaintances more than any of j ber numerous failings. To have to ! stand by and behold an insignif...

A WEIRD PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 8 January 1914

A WEIRD PROCESSION. Five hundred snake-charmers, sounding weird notes on their pipes, formed the unusual yet- picturesque procession that followed to his grave Katch Sarak, a man ol big renown in bis business, who died in terrible agony as the result of a cobra bite received while practising his profes sion in the neighborhood of Garden Reach, India." ' "Guru," or god, he had become dub bed by the people amongat whom he lived, such was his influence over poisonous reptiles. His services were sought recently by a neighbor who had missed many fowlB from his com pound. Going at dusk one day, the snake-chacmer discovered a cobra of unusual size amongBt the birds, so formidable, in fact, that he postponed his attempt to capture it until day light, when he was successful in se curing it. Instead of dispatching the snake at once, he took it to the local bazaar for the edification of the natives. On attempting to extract its fangs, the cobra wriggled free and darted,at its captor, who was b...

AN EXTRAORDINARY WILL. At an Inquest held recently at Mas terton (New Zealand) on the body of Mr. Robert J. Ewington, one of the most remarkable wills on record was produced.

The writing on the field-glass case, which t had been scratched with a piece of! wire or a nail, was as follows:— i "Look after Maudie and the child ren. Look after things, Will. H. ap point R.

It was a blazing hot day, witli the temperature att something over the century, so that the absence of shelter made' itself rather con spicuous." However, with umbrellas and hooded vehicles, including motor cars, together with iced liquid re freshments the inconvenionces of the weather were fairly ■w'clt over come. The club had speedily re paired the damage dono by the storm of the previous week, and the horse stalls were found to be ready for use.
