Dangerous Sport, This week the Western Dis trict was invaded by a number of motor cyclists, more than a score of whom competed in a hundred-mile road race over the 24-mile stretch between Camper down and Lismore. Many of these riders attained on the straight runs a speed of over GO miles an hour, and there were numerous accidents along' the route to prove the dangerous nature of this sporting event. . In order to obtain the exact > mileage, the organisers of the race marked out a circuit at the i Lismore end of the course con-; taining four acute angles that j brought several riders to grief ; ; and the marvel is that som...

Sundry Pars. CROPS AND FLOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914
Sundry Pars. CROPS AND FLOCKS. The recent rains-2J inches for the month at Lismore-have been ample for present agricultural requirements, and farmers are inclined to be rather jubilant at the improved prospects. The rain fell in ample time to enabie them to get in their wheat, and the fine soft rain did not in any way injure the seed-beds that had been prepared. In most cases the ground had been well worked, and farmers were waiting for rain before sowing. Although the rain met farmers' needs, pastoralists state that it came too late to ensure even a decent merino lambing. It most cases serious losses occurred amongst the lambs. On burnt country particularly, owners were obliged to destroy the lambs in order to save the ewes. The rain had the effect of giving the grass a good start, and the older of the dry sheep will quickly recover from the effects of the dry spell. There may, however, be some tender wool on the hoggetts. SCHOOL IMPROVEMENTS. The Struan school committee met on Tne...

Make Your District Known [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914
Make Your District Known Concerning some parts of the district news comes but seldom. This is not entirely our fault; we have no miracu lous power of knowing what is happen ing at all the places within our area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease ? If no one else is doing it for your district, will you try on these lines '! Send accounts of public and social events in your township and neighbour hood, such as weddings, deaths, acci dents, concerts, matters touching dis trict industries, etc. ?Write the names of persons very distinctly. Dont bother about grammar or spell ing ; it's the editor's work to look after those trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. Write only on one side of the paper. Write your name and address on some corner-not for publication, but to prove good faith. Give information; but let criticism alone.

The Engineer said that in nearly all these cases the rabbits had been dug out again ...

WHY SILAGE IS ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914
WHY SILAGE IS ESSENTIAL. There are several reasons for the popularity of silage. More feed can be stored in a given space in the form of silage than in the form of fodder or hay. There is a smaller loss of food ma terial when a crop is made into silage than when cured as fodder or hay. Corn silage is a more efficient feed than corn fodder. An acre of corn can be placed in the silo at less cost than the same area can be husked and shredded. Crops can be put in the silo dur ing weather that could not be util ised in making hay or curing fodder. More stock can be kept on a given area of land when silage is the basis of the ration. There is less waste in feeding silage than in feeding fodder. Good silage properly fed is all consumed. Silage is very palatable. Silage, like other succulent feeds, has a beneficial effect upon the diges tive organs. Silage is the best and cheapest form in which a succulent feed can be pro vided for winter use. Silage can be used for supplement ing pastures,...

The story is told of a belated traveller who, one dark, stormy night, painfully climbed a sign post at the junction of two roads, and struck his last match, only to decipher the words, "Wet paint." The story belongs to the apocrypha, and is probably an exaggeration. No sane muni cipality would go to the trouble of playing such a senseless joke upon wayfarers. What the man who climbed the post no doubt did find was a totally illegible sign through lack of wet paint since the day it was first erected. This neglect of road signs is to be noticed in many Victorian municipalities. Some have fallen down and...

When the wo men had left the table cigars were accepted by all the men except the physician. Seeing his. friend refuse the cigar, the host in astonishment ex claimed:: "What! not smoking? My dear fel low, you lose half your dinner!" "Yes, I know I do," meekly replied the1 doctor, "but if I smoked one I should lose the whole of it!"

FARM JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914
FARM JOTTINGS. The "discipline of the farm" is the asset of the farm boy that markB him. through later life. The endless round of planting and harvesting, the daily care of animals, the regular toil of which there is no cessation, to him 80 - often a dull routine, form altogether au inestimable training in systematic hab its and thoughts that accounts for his superior achievement in the industries, commerce, and Btatemanship In later life. The real opportunity for satisfac tory living In farming comes not so much from the nature of the work as from the fact that the farm is a busi ness and a home, intricately interwo ven. Life and work united, which is the natural thing. It is much easier to maintain soil in a satisfactory condition of efficiency by crop rotation and the application of artificial manures than to restore it after it has once been impoverished, by the loss of fertilising constituents. In pasturing lucerne it must not be over-stocked, and the animals will in jure the c...
Not Clear. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914
Not Clear. At a trial in an Australian court* when the witness in the box was "be ing subjected to a merciless cross-ex amination, in answering one question the witness nodded. Whereupon the court stenographer, who was working at high speed to get it all and could not see the witness, at once demand ed: Answer that question," to which' the witness replied: "1 did answer it; I nodded my head." The stenographer, without a mo ment's hesitation,. retaliated with, "Well, I heard it rattle, but could not tell whether it was up and down or from side to side." A woman always calls it "feminine intuition" when she succeeds,in mak ing a fairly good guess.
HOW TO AVOID NEURALGIA. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914
HOW TO AVOID NEURALGIA. Two of the commonest causes of neuralgia are neglected decaying teeth and eye-strain, it may be that no one partcular tooth is badly decayed, there may be no actual toothache that the sufferer can point to as the" rea son . for those shooting pains about the cheek or jaw, which he endures* almost nightly. Nevertheless, in. about. 50 per cent, of the cases the teeth are at the root of the trouble. Clearly the dentist in such cases" is the right doctor, and as a rule a me dical man will.send his patient to the dentist. Many people whose neural gia is due to eye-strain are not con scious of anything the matter with their sight, it may be only when they seek medical advice that the sugges tion of eye trouble is made to them; they go to the oculist, glasses are pre scribed, and the neuralgia disappears. We may be in a certain physical; condition which renders us particular ly ready for neuralgia, the scale being turned by comparatively such small' things as a drau...
