THE FUN SIDE OF FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 25 December 1914
THE FUN SIDE OF FARMING. There's a fun s:de in. every business. A. fid if you once get to looking upon that, you'll find zest and inspiration,. and the stuff that smiles are made of in the most commonplace task., Everybody vcould work-including "father," and they'd work with all the vim- and earnestness of their be ings-if they only knew the pleasure dividends that come from doing each day one's daily best, and looking on the happy aide. It's all in the viewpoint. If we make up our minds in ad vance that the day's work is a grind, a grind it straightaway becomes. The moment we call ourselves slaves we are slaves. Why not forget all about "stern ne cessity? yof labor.-.. - ". : r eNo man is driven who' will'les ::?, - It may be natural 'at times to rebel ' against the "have to" that hangs over: our heads It may be human on occasions, to almost envy the care free cat that gets fed three times a day and. seems to have no further obligations except to ourl up by the fire and keep warm. ...

HE LAUGHS BEST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 25 December 1914
HE LAUGHIS BEST 'Paddy has a great power of enjoy. mIest after all. One day as he was walking he saw a bull attack a man, and he had to hold his sides with both hanlids, the scene was so.funny. After a time the animal turned his attention to him, and poor Pat, after exploring the upper regions, came down with a bump on the other side of the fence. Hie rubbed his wounds, as he said to himself: "Faith, I'm glad I had my laugh when I did, or 1 wouldn't have had it at all."

HIS RIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 25 December 1914
HIS RIGHT. .The magistrate looked severely at the small, red-faced man who had been sum. moned before him, and who returned his gaze without flinching. "So vyou kiclke your landlord down stairs',' queried th' magistrate. "Did you imagine that was within. the rights of a tenant ' I'll bring my lease in and show it to you," said.the little man, growing still redder, "and I'll wager you'll agree with me that anything they've forgot ten to prohibit in that lease I had a right to do the very first good chance 1 got."

ROYAL BLACKMAIL. KAISER'S SON TAKES WAR LEVY. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 25 December 1914
ROYAL BLACKMAIL. KAISER'S SON TAKES WAR LEVY. 'What a German occupation' means. is vividly described by Mr. G. "Ward Price 'in the' "Daily- Mail." '" '"At. Epernay," he writes, "the mayor is M. Pol-Roger, the champagne merchant., Directly the Germans entered'the town: on the 4th September, after bombard ing it to the extent of about 50 skelle, which caused some damage and set several parts of the town alight, they, went straight to the town hall and arested him, together with Maitre Per. suit, his deputy, and two municipal councillors.-" They were all confined in the town hall, under the close guard of armed" sentries, for 36 hours, as host ages, while the. Germans were billet= ing their troops in the town. It was the Prussian Guard that occupied Eper 'nay, under General 'Baron von Pleren ::berg. There; were infantry, cavalry,' artillery, and pioneers, but since a num-' her of the troops 'were spread about in. the villages all rounfl Epernay it .is difficult to come by any estimate ...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 25 December 1914
OF RURAL INTERESTý' (Bjr :'Rustiou.") . : If the rain has come. too late to lie' 'of, much benefit 'this -season, it. puts, heart into us by reason of the indica-; tion it gives that droughts are not ptr petual; and the breaks in the weather coming in, December may be taken as a good augury for next.season. There is thus an inducement to put our best 'foot forward in. the way. of prepara. tions. Appropriately enough comes an article in . the 'current issue of the ''Journal of Victoria;" in which ,tr. A. E. V. Richardson, M.A., B.Sc., agri cultural: superintendent, under the heading, "Wheat and.the War," deals with. Australia's opportunity in satis fying the demands in Europe for food stuffs and particularly for wheat. After setting out at length the effects of. the war upon production and, prices, he says:- f'An era of high prices for wheat is likely to be ushered in-prices which must prove highly remunerative to the wheat grower. .What, then, "should Australia do to make the most o...
WOULD HE EXCHANGE PLACES? [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 25 December 1914
WOULD HE EXCHANGE PLACES? Farming, like many other ocupatious looks like the best job on earth to the man worrying over some other busi ness. We recently overheard a well dressed man, evidently a city business man, remark that farming was one of the best paying occupations at the present day, .and that farmers 'wore making money faster than ever before, and faster than wen engaged in other forms of work. He looked only at the prices which he lad'to pay for farm products, forgetting entirely that the cost of production, and the cost of marketing, the two main considerations in the business of farming, have in creased by leaps u nd bounds during the past few years. Just let our city friend: stop, and :compiare the differS once between ruling farm wages at present, and those obtaining .a few years ago, and eot him also calculate, as ha does in Lis own business, the amount of capital required to equip a farm. They all say that the highest returns come from a well-equipped farm, and so t...

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 25 December 1914
* (By "Flemington.") F'or many years Caulfield has pro vided the programme for Melbourne racegoers on Boxing Day. The meet ing has never aspired to be of more than local interest, though the prize money for competition has from time to itime been so increased that it now reaohes a very substantial sum. In the present circumstances, 'tis scarcely likely that any further addi tion will be made to tie stakes. The club will do very well if the manage ment can contrive to keep up the present standard for the present. The chief event now in the Boxing Day programme is the Hopetoun Cup, so named out of compliment to one of our first and perhaps most popular governor generals. Class is but poorly represented in the field, but none the less we may expect a good contest. The handicap per did not find it necessary to go very high with the weights, and thus owners, as far as can be seen, have little cause for complaint. Sir Solo ran a fair race in the Melbourne, and here the company canndt be c...
HEIFERS NEED CAREFUL MILKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 25 December 1914
HEIFERS NEED CAREFUL MILKERS. Many young heifers are absolutely ruined by carc!ess or rough milker, during the first week" of thie milking period. Through bad treatmeht, they get a bad reputation as poor milkers, while the fault lies entirely with those who handle tlhem. A good ntilker is probably.a]y greater rarity than a good cow. Tshe cow is a sensitive creatllre and-requires to be handled. in a gentle mannor. No 'Iortion of her body is more sensitive thafn her udder. It is a great relief to the cow to have her distended udder relieved of the milk there is in it, lunt she expects it to be drawn quickly and gently, not un necessary tugging at the teats, but by a gentle rapid pressuro, and with a downward movement of the fingers.. As a rule, with her first cna? the cow's udder is swollen and tender, the skin. distended and very sensitive. It is advisable to wash the bag and teats with warm water and wipe dry and ap ply i'aseline after milking. With clean. cows and clean cowslheds, ...
