EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 30 April 1914
EXPERIMENTS WITH. FERTILISERS. E'ery man must study his own soil and crop conditions. Experiment sta tions may practise from now until the end of time, and still not be able to answer the question for the individual farmer. Principles can be established, the needs of different crops can be learned; the composition of fertilisers can be determined, chemical and phy sical analyses may show wherein soils differ; but,when it comes to the question of the profitable use of fertil isers, each farm, each paddock must answer for itself. That is, careful, intelligent and accurate experiments must be carried on by every farmer, gardener, and orchardist who wishes to settle this point. In all fertiliser experimental work it is important that the land used be as uniform in soil condition and previous manuring and cropping as can be procured. The size of plots may vary according to the nature of the crop from two square rods.to one-tenth to one-third of an acre, or larger if desired. The larger p...

GREATER THAN GOLD Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VI. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 30 April 1914
GREATER THAN GOULD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. :Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved: ? ,CHAPTER VI. When Mrs. Bellairs met her son he had contrived to smarten himself up' and looked much less wild and shabby than on the previous day. She made him join her in the tonneau of her motor-car, and there she slipped the money into his hand. His -face lit up with an amazing joy. S"Oh! mother, you are a brick!" he exclaimed. "Is it as much as I asked rf~h mother?" fyes, Ralph; there are fifteen hun dred pounds in notes in that bundle." "'~oth!" exclaimed the young man, "you really are a wonder! How Sver did you get it?" -Mrs. Bel:airs became very white. "Don't ask me, Ralph. I can never tell you-never. This is a secret ,be : tween you and me." "Does my stepfather know?" "'No, Ralph; and you must never breathe the subject to him. If you do. you will kill me. As it is, I have been almost killed. I nev...
FARMING ON BUSINESS LINES. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 30 April 1914
FARMING ON BUSINESS LINES. It is quite impossible in these days of keen competition, and with the high prices ruling for land, cattle, la bor, and all commercial commodities, to ignore the fact that if the dairy farmer is to make tlie most of his labors, he must be in the position of knowing, with some degree of cer fainty, just what branch of his bust iess is, from year to year, the most profitable. How can disaster be avert ed it he goes on year after year utter ly ignorant, not only of how much he has made, or is making, from his dairy or other branches of his busi ness, but what is far worse, often not possessing a knowledge as to whether he is making money, or losing it. That hundreds of farmers do not find them selves involved in serious financial difficulties is largely due to the pro ductiveness of the land and a tribute t,; their own hard-working industry. If the commercial man, faced on all sides with keen competition, carried on his business in the haphazard way the farme...

NEW WHEATS. BOMEN AND SUNSET. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 30 April 1914
.NEW WHEATS,. BOMEN AND SUNSET. The New :1South Wales department of .Agriculture is recommending two. new varieties of wheatewhich have been bred by local scientists; One of these (Bomen) in its young growth is medium spreading, of a dark-green color, glaucous, anld .with erect leaves of medium breadth. The straw is fair ly tall, hollow, white, rather strong and medium stout. Bomen is a medium stooler, even and level-headed in appearance, without much dead flag. The cars are rather large, smooth, medium, erect, awnless, medium open, slightly tapering, and pale yellow. The apikelets are regu lar and widly spreading, with rather blunt glumes which are not firmly at tached. The grain is of medium size and regular shape, light red or brown, slightly horny with a medium deep crease. Its chief defects are a tendency to shell and a susceptibility to frost, which sometimes induces tip-withering of the ear. The cross was made at Wagga in 1901, and until fixed it was grown in the bunt experim...

THE HOSPITAL FETE. Further Details. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 30 April 1914
THE HOSPITAL FETE. Further Details. As far as can be gathered from a rough estimate of the returns, this year's leto promises to eS~tblish a record financially. Of course it will be some little time yet before a balance sheet can be got out, but there is reason to believe that it will show a splendid result. The management is greatly pleased with the splendid sup port accorded by the public, and also de sires to sincerely thank all who tendered assistance in any capacity whatever. It speaks volumes for the officials and thcse who so ably helped them that the heavy programme was got through without a hitch of any kind, and thanks are due to those who came along, and willingly tendered their services. Mlr. 0. H. Manning (Kerang) was a tour of strength as one of the stewards in the Highland events, and mention must be miade of the valu able aid rendered by Mr. D. S.

REAL BROKEN HEARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 30 April 1914
REAL BROKEN HEARTS. The late Sir George Paget, in one of his lectures which were published some years ago under -the editorship of his son, stated that in most cases where. death is attributed to "broken heart" no rupture of that organ has actually taken place, although un doubtedly mental troubles do fre quent'v cause disease of the body. ItHe mentioned an actual case of brokefi heart which was cited by Dr. J. K. Mitchell, of the Jefferson Col lege, Philadelphia. In an early period of his medical career, Dr. Mitchell acted as ship's doctor to a vessel sail ing from Liverpool to one of the American ports. He became on very good terms with the captain, who was eagerly anticipating the return voy age because then he was to be 'mar ried to the lady of his choice. He had brought many costly jewels to pre sent to the lady as bridal gifts. So often did the captain discourse upon the lady and her charms that Dr. Mitchell became wearied, and avoid ed h im whenever he could. When the ship la...
What She Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 30 April 1914
What She Wanted. • She .walked into the public library and sweetly said: "I would like 'The Red Boat,' please." The librarian diligently searched the catalogue and came back with: "I don't think we have such a book." Flushing a bit, she said sweetly, 'May the title be 'The Scarlet Yacht?" Again he looked, with the game re sult. Then, with her pretty fingers she dived into her bag, consulted a slip of paper, and said: "Oh, I beg your pardon. I mean the 'Rubiyat.'"
BEEF GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 30 April 1914
BEEF' GROWING. '"The farmer who increases the pro ductive value of his land, either by restoring soil fertility, or by growing better grains, makes a personal suc cess, and, to an extent, becomes a public benefactor," says the "Farm Bulletin." So said someone whose name we cannot for the moment re member. If this be true of the grain farmer, what can be said of the pro gressive stock raiser? There never was a time when there was so great a need of growing two pounds of beef where only one grew before, as there is at present. Such a marked increase may be possible only in some instan ces, but very great improvement is needed in the cattle of the majority of our grazing farms and stations. Not every cattle man is in a position to raise pure breds, but none can afford to raise scrubs. And none can afford not to feed up to the animal's full ca pacity.

She Knew. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 30 April 1914
She Knew. It was young Mrs. Robinson's first dinner-party, and she was suffering ail the usual terrors of the inexperl. enced hostess. However, the cook rose to the occa r'.-' splendidlyand, so far- as the dinner itself was concerned, Mrs. Rob inson was delighted.. The only fly. in the ointment was Janie. Jane was the new parlor-maid; she 'was slow, clumsy, and her wait ing was bad. ..But, in addition to these faults, she insisted on keeping her mouth wide open. . This so 'got on Mrs. Robinson's nerves that at last she exclaimed: "Jane, your mouth is wide open!" Jane withdrew her gaze from the ceiling and said, looking down-with a cheery smile: "I know it is, ma'am; I opened it myself!"

Eccentric Judges. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 30 April 1914
Eccentric Judges. Mr. Ure has had some_ eccentric predecessors on the Scottish Bench. The more eccentric of all was Lord Eskgrove. Condemning a tailor .to death for murdering a soldier, Lord Eskgrove remarked: "Not only did you murder him, whereby he was. bereaved of life; but you. did thrust, or push, or pierce, or project, or propel the lethal wea pon through his regimental breeches, which were His Majesty's." -Sentencing two criminals for house. breaking with violence, after detail ing the way they attacked the per sons of the house, Eskgrove went on: "All this you did; God preserve us! just as they were sitting down to din ner!"
