JOPKINS' DREADFUL MISTAKE. A Little Joke Which Failed. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

JOPKINS' .DREADFUL MISTAKE. A Little Joke Which Failed. ' Jopkins had read somewhere that if a woman got hold of a newspaper with a clipping cut out of it she would never rest until she had pro cured a complete paper and read the missing item. This struck Jopkins as a very shrewd and Machiavellian plan of exposing this well-known weakness of lovely woman and he resolved to put it into practice. So that night when he went home from the office there ostentatiously protruded from his coat pocket the day's paper, from which* he had neat ly cut a paragraph referring to the rin^s of Jupiter or some such matter. He threw the paper to .''one side in a careless way, and after supper not ed with an unholy glee that Mrs. Jop kins had secured it and was running her eye over the bargain ads., and working her way, after the manner of her sex, through the personals, marriage notices, and locals, back to the telegraphic dispatches. Presently Jopkins observed a sud den and suspicious frown overcast ...

"My Mother's Eyes." [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

"My Mother's Eyes." A newspaper recently invited its readers to state in a few words what they considered the most beautiful thing in the world. The first prize was awarded to the sender of the answer, "The eyes of my mother." "The dream of that which we Irnow to be impossible," suggested an ima ginative person, and this brought him second prize. But the most amusing thing was that which read "The most beautiful thing tin the world is to see a man carrying his mother-in-l^w across a dangerous riv er without making any attempt to drop her in." Doctor (with ear to patient's chest): There's a curious swelling over the region of the heart, sir, which must be reduced at once. Patient (anxiously): That swelling is my pocket-book, doctor. Please don't reduce it too much.

MR. FRUITGROWER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

MR. FRUITGROWER. Rain, bail, sunshine, blow or snow, the middleman never worries. He will "make It up" whichever way it goes. One of the main essentials to sue* cess is loyalty to your co-operative society. Do not split up your conBlgn< ments and give agentB an opportunity of operating against you with your own ammunition. You must be a mighty Btrong man, Mr. Fruitgrower, to carry your own and other people's burdens the way you do. Don't you feel sometimes that yon would Uke to drop some of It; that you would like to play a little and work less? If the old apple tree, could apeak It Avould surely protest against giving half its Income to some fellow in Mel* bcurne who never produced anything but a fat bank pass book.

A Fine Speech. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

A Fine Speech. "I interviewed Andrew Carnegie in Brussels," said a newspaper corre spondent; "the great little man talk ed, of course, about peace. "He told me that peace must be preached gently, affectionately. You can never convert people by enraging them. You can't fight for peace. "He said a peace advocate of the (ler^, virulent bitter school made a speech one night at a banquet in Pittsburg, and when he'd finished an old man shook him by the hand and said: " 'That was a fine . speech, sir.' " 'Thanks. Glad you' like it,' "'Yes,' said the old man, 'I liked it first rate, but, excuse me, sir, what are you for-peace or war?' "

LACK OF SYSTEM ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

LACK OF SYSTEM ON THE FARM. When we stop and look around, we are not surprised that there are so many farmers who are discontented, who have spent bo many unprofitable years. There are so many of them robbers of the soil's fertility, and rob bers mostly come to grief, sooner or later. A man can't go op cropping hiB land year after year, and hauling the crop to market, without selling his land, too. And when both his land and his crop have gone, then-why, then he is discontented. "Farming dcn't pay."

TO GET GOOD POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

TO GET GOOD POTATOES. A piece of old pasture is fine soil for potatoes. The better the turf, the better the crop. A clover sod is about the best. Put a good team on the plough and set the share deep down. Potatoes need a loose, deep-set bed. It is a leg-weary business to tramp back and forth across ploughed ground all day; and yet this is the price of good potatoes. Take your time to it, and be thorough. You will save time in the long run. The more harrowing the less cultivating. Get the seed well down. It may not come up so soon, but when it does come it will shoot ahead fast. A four inch covering is about right.

DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

DAXftYmO. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. ! An English dairying authority gays:; The elimination of the worthless anl* mala should be one of the chief ob« jects of the cow keeper. Milk records kept carefully and ays* tematically furnish reliable informa* tion which enables a cow keeper to de tect these worthless animals; and it pays him to dispose of them at once. There are some farmers, of course, who may be tempted to rely wholly on their own judgment as far as the milking capacities of any cow is con* cerned; but guess-work of this kind can teach nothing what it costs to feed cows, nor whether such food is being economically fed in relation to the average quantity of milk produced. Milk producers need to study this question of cost of food in relation to milk yield very carefully indeed. The fact is clear that a cow giving, say, 800 gallons per annum costs practic ally no more to feed than one which only gives 600 gallons; yet, compara tively speaking, there is a loss of £C on the latter,...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

LADIES' LETTER. (By "Irene.") The more we see of the new (ash* ions the more it becomes apparent that the stiff corset must go and the new figure and pose be adopted, to a certain extent, if they are to be worn with apy good effect. There must be a svelte pliability that any much- bon* ed and braced corset will not allow, and there must be a certain sugges tion of limpness. How different is the new figure-line from that of last year. So much so that many thoughtful Wo men long have hesitated before adopt ing the new style. The question is: will complicated draperies enjoy as short a reign as did panniers last sea son? Parisiennes were almost taken aback themselves by the unheard of eccentricities paraded for their edi fication at fashionable racecourses. The leading houses, seeing they had overstepped the mark, . capitulated, and immediately made tracks in an other direction. Hence modes which threatened to be more than eccentric have become subdued and are simple and elegant. The d...

WARTS ON TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

WARTS ON TEATS. Many people fail to get rid of warts. v because they think it can only be done with great difficulty, or by tearing the wart bodily away, but this is not the case. When cows are milked twice a day it does not seem to afford much: opportunity to get rid of warts. To use any substance of a poisonous nature for the wart is dangerous in many ways. When the teats are chapped only, some kind of soothing ointment should be applied, and for this pur pose carbolised vaseline, and other preparations may bo procured from the chemist. This will heal the teat up in a short time, and allow the milk ing to be carried on without any dis comfiture to the cow. In the case of warts, when small they can generally be got rid of by touching them with caustic soda. An other simple remedy, and one which In many cases has been found to be successful; rub the wart with vinegar, then while it is still wet dust it with.' dry carbonate of soda. If this is done after each milking, the warts wilt ...

AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. Within the past ten years the dairy cows of Australia have increased from one million to above two millions. Tho butter produced in a single year reach ed about 200,000,000 lbs. The annual export is valued at between £3,000,000 and £4,000,000. No rural industry in Australia is more progressive and none pays larger returns to the farmers. The mainstay of dairying is the export market, and easily the largest con* Burners of Australian butter abroad are the people of the United Kingdom. It might; be thought that the expense of carrying butter from Australia to London would be a serious handicap upon butter-making in the Common* wealth. As a matter of fact, however, the Australian dairy farmer, in point of cost, is as close to London as the dairy farmers of Ireland or Scotland. The actual contract price of shipping butter from either Melbourne or Syd* ney to London is yzd. per lb.

Newspaper Law. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 6 May 1914

Newspaper Law. -? If subscribers order discon tinuance of their papers the pub lisher may continue to send them until all arrears are paid. If subscribers refuse or neg lect to take papers from the office to which they are directed they will be held responsible un til they have settled their acv counts. If subscribers move to another place without informing publish ers and papers are sent to their former directions, the subscri bers are held responsible. The courts have decided that "refusing to take a paper from any post office, or removing, or leaving them uncalled for" is prima facie evidence of inten tional fraud. If persons pay in advance for a newspaper or quarterly adver tisement, they arc bound to give notice to the publisher at the end of that time if they do not wish to continue it, otherwise the pub lisher is authorished to send it on, and the subscriber is respon sible until an express notice and payment of arrears are sent to the publisher.
