FOOTBALL. Queenscliff (17-23) Beat Engineers (4-12). Another Runaway Victory. An Uninteresting Game. Werry and Mills Score Well. The above match, which took - place on the local ground,proved to be an uninteresting game. The winners had no trouble in scoring another runaway victory at the ex pense of a weak team, which fol lowed the true policy of 'sports' and faced the foe for playing sake, if for nothing else. A deal of un certainty prevailed as to whether the match would be played or not, owing to a number of the Engineers being absent from the Island on duty, :but having a desire to do their best; the team faced the bud ding premiers of another season, and a large number of spectators were able to witness the usual Saturday afternoon's tussel, which everyone looks forward to, and are disappointed if it is not to be found. The Engineers were without the services of several of their best players, while Queenscliff were were without the services of Shapter and A. Johnson. It was ex...

Efforts are being made to defini tely fix on grounds for golf links. For some time the game has been played on ground leading 'past 'Mount Edgecombe,' but it has been unsatisfactory, inasmuch as the course has been interfered with by drivers of vehicles. The mratter was referred to the council, and on Thursday the Mayor, Crs Klug, Arkins, Thwaites and Brinsmead, accompanied by Col. Sandford, Major Taylor and Capt,- Joynt, visited the spot and inspected the ground for the purpose of ascertain ing what could be done by way of permanency. It is hoped that the efforts to properly form the links will, meet with success, as golf would. mean a deal for the advance ment of the district.

AN AWFUL NIGHT IN AN ALPINE PASS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 1 August 1914
AN AWFUL NIGHT IN AN ALPINE PASS. ---T---+----- How a mountaineering party lost its way in an Alpine snow storm, after a guide had first collapsed and then become delirious, and how it spent a night without food in a hole hewn out of the frozen snow is vividly described by Mr. Elliot Stock in the August number of "Travel and Exploration." "What's to be done, Hans ?" asked Mr. Stock when they knew they were lost ; '" we can't stop here. We shall be frozen solid in a few hours." "We have to, -Herr," replied the guide, soberly. "We must wait, al ways wait. We cannot move if we cannot see." They roughly hewed a small cave out of the snow on the mountain side and crept in. How the night passed is described as follows : "We must all have dozed, to be awakened roughly by one another at intervals ; for it would have been fatal to have slept outright in that intense cold. We were kept awake, too, by our patient's delirious state. At odd moments he would spring into a sitting position, shout ...

ACROSS DEATH VALLEY. A Forbidding Desert. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 1 August 1914
ACROSS DEATH VALLEY. A Forbidding Desert. '"It was as the sun was rising that we began our descent from Para mint Range to take our way across Death Valley, in Southern California. The mountain surface is in rolls and drifts until it reaches the edge of the valley, where we arrive at the forbidding grey flat, level as a bil liard-table, save where here and there an encrustation of soda in shome form permitted the foot of man or beast to break through this slim crust. Our route lay directly across the sterile desert, and before us ran waggon tracks that were made by miners and adventurers who came to the silver-mines of Paramint. Old Tex, our guide, said that one could see on that desert waste the tracks of the waggons owned by the early emigrants, of whom a number per ished for want of water in the years 1819-50. When about seven miles out on the desert we came across the bones of three oxen, cracked, worn, and weather-beaten, and three spokes near them. A little further away lay- t...
WAR. Servia and Austria. IS GREAT BRITAIN PREPARED ? AUSTRIA OCCUPIES BELGRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 1 August 1914
Servia and Austria. IS GREAT BRITAIN PREPARED? A:::USRIA OCCUPIES -BELGRADE. The civilised world has been shocked with the outbreak of hostilities between Austria and Servia. It is not improbable that the conflict will not be confined to these Powers. Most of the other nations have prepared, and the First Division of British warships have left under sealed orders. Russia, it is stated, has 700,000 men under arms. Conferences have been held by German Ministers in Berlin, but results are unknown. The position is regarded as in tensely serious. Unde~ the terms of the Triple Alliance Germany is bound to go to Austria's help immediately Austria is threatened by Russian mobilisation while she is fighting a third power. The French view is that Austria is endeavoring to repeat the coup of 1908, when she seized Bosnia Herzegovina. The fortress of Belgrade has been destroyed and Austrians occupy the city. Five hundred thousand Russian troops massed on the Austrian border. Germany threatens to...
THE GARDEN. COLOUR IN APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 1 August 1914
THE GARDEN. COLOUR IN APPLES. Evirdence in support of the old opiaion .that sunlight is the chief agent in developing colour in apples is afforded in a bulletin from the Pennsylvanian experiment station on "The Fertilising of Apple Orchards." Various dressings were applied to the trees in order to ascertain their re spective effects upon growth of wood and yield and colour of fruit. Farm yard manure and nitrogenous artifi cial manure alone or in combination notably increased growth and yield, but reduced colour. The latter is at tributed to "delayed maturity and a ,diminished light supply to the fruit, due to an increase in the density of the foliage.". It is added that ex periments proved that exposure to sunlight after picking increased red ness by over 35 per cent., while some of the same lot of fruit stored in darkness showed practically no deep ening of colour. The conclusion is that "maturity in sunlight on the trees is undoubtedly the greatest in fluence affecting redness in ...

SOR, THE CURSE OF THE BLUE DIAMONDS. +---t--- By Hedley Richards, Author of "The Mine Master's Heir," "Time,- the Avenger," etc., etc. CHAPTER I. -A THIEF WHO DIDN'T CALL HIM SELF A THIEF. "Thank Heaven !" The words were spoken by a tall, gaunt man of about thirty, who carried a pi'ckaxe, spade, and a bundle, as he paused in front of a rough wooden shed. He had walked many, miles, and the sun was blazing as only an Austra lian sun can blaze, -and the wayfarer who had, worked many weary months at a' claim and at last given it up in disgust, then set off hoping to find a spot that would give him some re turn for his toil. But the place to which he, was bound was still many miles distant, and he was weary and footsore, therefore the sight of this unexpected shelter caused him to ex claim with thankfulness.. It was not often he thought, or spoke of the Almighty, not being a .God-fearing man or a. swearer, and *the words were almost a surprise ...

THE DAIRY IMAGINARY CONVERSATION. Between. James Walton, manager of the Innamincka Co-operative Butter Factory, and one of his suppliers in this instance, Bill Thompson. Walton : I was out your way yes terday, Bill. You Ieem to be milking a lot of cows. How many ? Bill : Oh, between 50 and 60. I don't know for certain. Walton: But you should know,. It is the height of folly, not to know. Supposing I came to our annual meeting and you asked me how many lbs. of cream it took to make the butter we had produced; supposing I said that I wasn't sure-what sort of a man would you think I was ? Bill : Yes, but that's different. Walton : No, it's not different. The men are different, that's all. You and I are different. Now, don't go away, Bill. I want to ask you some ques tions. I want to know what kind of bull - what breed of bull - you're using. Bill : A Jersey. Walton : Then how came all those Ayrshire markings and Ayrshire heads ? Bill : I had an A3rslire before I bought the Jersey, and ...
THE ECONOMICAL PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 8 August 1914
THE ECONOMICAL PIG. The pig is the most economical of all animals. It has been found in America that of what a horse eats 52 per cent. goes to waste, 44 per cent. of the food consumed by cattle is similarly lost and 32 per cent of all that sheep take into their stom achs. But only 12 per cent. of what a pig eats is wasted. Of the food eaten by a pig 52 per cent. goes to make growth, while a sheep utilises only 25 per cent of its sustenance: for growing, which, of course, means the production of meat. These figures are obtained from recent experiments made by • Government experts, ivho find, as a result of their study, that the pig has what they call "economic superioritS" even over poultry. This: means that it produces more meat in proportion to its weight, and the animal weighs more in proportion to the aniount of food it consumes. It was found that 84 per cent of the carcase of a pig is used as meat, 75 per cent. of a bullock, and - 54 per cent of a sheep. The pig seems to have th...
THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE JERSEY-SHORTHORN CROSS [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 8 August 1914
THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE JERSEY-SHORTHORN CROSS A writer in the "Mark Lane Ex press Agricultural Journal" strongly advocates the crossing of the Short horn with the Jersey, as he considers it one-of the most generally useful class of cattle for the dairyman, es pecially occupiers of small farms where the dairy, in one phase or an other, is a retail business of prim ary importance. The presumption is that he had in view what is called a dual purpose breed. History, how ever, has shown that this cross has not been such a success as would warrant to give it a further trial. Reading through the pleas, the writer puts in favour of his conten tion, it is evident that he has not studied the history of the two breeds sufficiently. The milking Shorthorn, as we know this breed in Australia, is still an undefinable proposition in England, and it is only within the last few years that efforts have been made to bring out the best qualities of that animal from a dairying proposition. In the articl...
THE POULTRY FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 8 August 1914
THE POULTRY FARM. Feed early in winter. Crushed maize can be fed in winter. Cleanliness must be observed in the fowlhouse. Straw from. the stable makes good scratching material for fowls. Look out for roup. The first symp tom is a watery appearance in the eyes. In the scratching shed bury the 'grain in the litter, so as to make the birds work for it. To encourage egg production in winter, it is best to keep your fowls in dry, warm scratching sheds. To kill worms in fowls, give fowls pills of thymol, consisting of one grain of thymol mixed in a soft bread pellet.. For cramp in fowls' daegs, it is best to gently rub the limbs with eucal yptus oil, and keep the birds in a .dry, warm shed. The egg is the most nutritious of foods. It contains 10 per cent. of car bohydrates, 12 per cent. of albumi noids, 3 per cent. of salts, and 75 per cent. of water. Five turkey hens are equal to a hundred-egg incubator in the hatch ing season. They can be set for nine weeks. and the chicks removed to a...
THE DAIRY HINTS ON BUTTER AND CHEESE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 8 August 1914
THE DAIRY ----+ -- HINTS ON BUTTER AND CHEESE MAKING. Unless the churn is kept well venti lated, especially during the early part of the churning period, the cream will become, frothy through being charged with gas liberated from the cream. Unless the churning is carried out satisfactorily the qua lity of the butter is bound to suffer. It should take from 20 to 35 minutes for the cream to turn to butter in the churn. Acidity in milk assists the action of rennet, resulting in a rather firm curd. In making soft and other kinds of cheese where a soft, tender curd is required, acid milk cannot be em ployed. In some varieties of cheese the presence of acid, so long as the milk is not too sour, does not have a serious effect upon the resulting cheese. In the prodtction of cream cheese, it is important to use only *pure fresh cream, and to make the cheese in as short a time as possible. In many, cases the flavour of cream cheese is at fault through the cream being kept too long while the c...

HOW WiVES ARE WON. QUEER WAYS OF COURTING. '"The way of a man with a maid" is always a thing ,worth noting ; also the various methods of courtship which prevail in different parts of the world. According to the nationality of your best girl your courtship system should be organised. In Roumania once every year, a fair of marriageable girls is held.
