WINTER EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 12 October 1911
-.. .. WINTER EGGS. The production of winter eggs is a comparatively. simple matter under proper conditions. Generally the de mand for assistance comes from those who want to produce winter'.eggsaun der impossible 'conditions.. TThere is no analogy between egg production and-other lines of prpduc tion-milk, for :example. - Milk is a secretion, and within certain limits there is a more or less distinct ieln tion between feed and product. tUp to a certain point the more- or*-the .better the cow is- fed. the more milk ahle will give. Egg production, how ever, is a generative function, and it depends directly -upon the: hen's ma tornal nature, and only.indirectly on the: feed. . Now, winter Itsniotbhe season when hens naturally want to lay eggs, and Sit follows -that- only, thbse in whom .the maternal instinct le 'srongest are likely to do.

OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 12 October 1911
OBITUARY. After an illness extending over three years Mr. James Rogers passed away on Saturday morning last. The deceased gentleman was born in Wooler, Northumber- land, in 1829. Shortly after his marrage he and his wife, who survives him, came to this State in 1855, landing in Geelong, and came to Werribee where he resided for the remainder of his life. During the stirring times on the goldfields he visited them also the principal New Zealand fields, but Werribee was his home and where after his travels he settled down as a builder. In the early days he took up land in Neerim, West Gippsland, and was one of the pioneers of that district. His holding there he afterwards sold to the late Francis Beamish. During his residence in Werribee, he was &nbsp; created a justice of the peace, about 20 years ago. He held several other public positions, among others the presidentship of the mechanics institute, an elder of the Presbyterian church and one of its trustees, secretary, to th...

BALL AT LITTLE RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 12 October 1911
BALL AT LITTLE RIVER. On the 20th ult., a ball was given by the benedicts of this district (in return to the bachelors' ball held a few weeks ago), in the Mechanics' Hall. It was a pronounced success in every detail, and outshone the bachelors' in every respect. The hall was charmingly de- corated with ever-greens and lilies. &nbsp; The attendance numbered close on 100 couples, which included visitors from Geelong, Melbourne, Werribee, Lara and other places, and was remarkable for the number of pretty girls present, and the fact that the men were slight- ly in the majority, so that there were no "wall-flowers." The music was all that could be desired, the committee having engaged Corridon's band. The floor was in perfect order and dancing was indulged in up to an early hour in the morning. An up-to-date supper, catered for by a Geelong firm, served at half time was much appreciated. Among those present was Mr. Ozanne, M.H.R., who responded on behalf of the benedicts in a nea...
