OSTRICH FARMING. How many men are there on the land who obey the Scriptural injunc tion to "try all things and hold fast to that which is good"? Not many. For the most part operations are re stricted to the things that haye been tried long; aa'o and found more or less eood, and to methods that haye ad vanced comparatively little since tho time of the Pliaroahs. That is not as it should be. New avenues should, be opened up. Some of them may prove cul-de-sacs, but there is always -the possibility of new developments that will add to the output from the land," which is the source of all our pros perity. ? * » * » The foregoing is su aces tod by an interesting1 account of ostrich farming which comes from the North.

ERADICATION OF BOXTHORN HEDGES. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 21 January 1915

ERADICATION OF BOXTHORN HEDGES. The eradication of box thorn hedges is likely to be a very vexed question in the MafFra shire council, and many ratepayers (and some of the councillors, too) are of the opinion that the inten tion of the council to compel land holders to eradicate same is unfair and will entail an expenditure, in some cases, of hundreds of pounds. Few landholders object to keeping the hedges trimmed and in order, but total eradication is a totally different matter. So strong id the feeling of opposition to the propoaul, that there is every likelihood of some of the councillors being opposed at the next election. At ihe last meeting of the council the fol lowing discussion took place, as repor ted in the "Spectator" : - Mr J. A. Mitchelmore asked in structions from the council with regard to box thorn hedges.

HOW GERMANY HATES. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 21 January 1915

HOW GERMANY HATES. When the average German editor ia not occupied in sprinkling vitrol on the head of Great Britain he busies himself in anointing the brow of Gernmuy with the oil of praise. The human race as a whole, it seems, is a moral shipwreck; only its German speaking section de serves to survive. German newspapers at the present moment are packed with illusions. Their pages offer a sort of witches' dance of things desired, and which, because they are desired, are believed to actually exist. Thus a Hamburg paper : "The disgust in which we are steeped reaches to the collar of our coat, but we will put up with the vile machin ations of the double-headed brood of British vipers for a little longer, and then we will bring the German h?el down upon their venomous heads. . . All that is loftiest and noblest in the true culture of the soul and luind, and in the development of the human race, has attained its purest expression in the German people. All that still re mains to Europe, i...
