Mathilde Mar ch'esi, the doyenne of teachers of sing ing in Europe and the foremost prima donna of her generation, occurrcd at the residence of her daughter, Mme.

SICK COW OR SICK BABY. [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 10 March 1914

SICK COW OR SICK BABY. At the A.YV.A. Conference now sitting in Melbourne Mrs. McPhcrson, a Footscray , delegate, said that in some country places women paid much attention to their cows, but lit tle to their babies. She knew of- a case where a woman sent her child to a Melbourne hospital for an operation which was to be performed a few hours later, and, the.mother stayed at, home. When slie^ asked the mother why she was not at: the hospital, her reply was, "Oh. the baby isat the hos pital, but I have to stay at home be couse I have a sick cow and must give it bran mashes.'- Some of the dele gates laughed; others were (writes the "Argus'"); too indignant to see any. hu mor in the storj\ There may have been pathos and maternal sacrifice in that story-sacrifice that perhaps the women ^who condemned would not have reached to. The mother may be stayed to attend to the sick cow, which was of high value to the family, knowing that no one else could do that for her. \vhile in the hospital ...

(To the Editor of the "Kyneton Guardian "1 Sir,-In Friday's issue of your con temporary I sec you are taken to task for - mentioning-, to put it briefly, "a young ladv's 21st wedding day." there by assuming that the young lady in question had been "much married." viz., 21 times. I would, however, like to point out to your contemporary that it might be as well for him not to be so hasty in judging others until he is certain that he is perfect himself, and would ask him to kindly peruse the account of a fire at* Daylesford in his issue of February 10. which report reads." But unfortunately a north-west wind was blowing almost a gale, and ?this assisted in saving the main build ing."

DEPREDATIONS OF STARLINGS [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 10 March 1914

DEPREDATIONS OF STARLINGS Donald McDonald writes in the "Argus": "I have several complaints as to the mischief caused, by starlings this j*ear. They seem to -do more damage to' fruit during" the dry season such as that recently ^ 'experienced, when drinking water is . scarce. 'W.H.S.' says tlial the question' will have to be very seriously considered by cultivators. 'Recently I saw a.fine crop of Jonathan apples: ravaged dun ing the absence of the family for a single day. Yet there was an elabor ate string contrivance from tree to trde, with a bell attached to the end. that could be rung from the,house at intervals. To'have to do this is in it self an abominable nuisance and a constant tie. In many cases apples not yet ripe had been "half eaten, and as they were wholly free from grubs it was evidently the apple itself that- at tracted the bird. Cherries and other soft fruits are ; hopeless, unlessMhe trees are netted. "Starlings appear to increase very rapidly, each bird, I should s...

THE CAMPASPE WEIR. [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 10 March 1914

THE CAMPASPE WEIR. - The Engineer reported to Satur day's meeting- of the Ivyneton Shire Council that in excavating for foun dations for the weir and footbridge across the Campaspe it was found ne cessary to'go to a much greater depth t^ian that shown on the plan, and than was anticipated from the trial shafts. This extra excavation and concrete was estimated at present at a little over 200 cubic yards, which would mean an extra cost of from £475 to £500. In consultation with Mr. Ew ing. it had been decided to do away with the sluice gate and have a 10-inch pipe and valve. As the Water Trust had a second-hand valve and had no use for same, he recommended that application be made to the Trust for purchase of same. With regard to widening the river and sloping the north bank east of the weir, the cost would be £30 to £35. It would also be advisable at the same time to re move the projecting mounds of stone near the weir and the lower branches of the willow trees. In reply to Cr. Spain...
