CADETS ON "FRENCH LEAVE." THE MILITARY FORTRESS AT QUEENSCLIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
CADETS ON "FRENCH LEAVE.' THlE MILITARY FORTRESS AT QUEENBOLIFF. When Freeman Lowry steppcad for. ward to answer the charge of absenting himself from the compulsory parade on April 15th, Captain R H Weddell, area officer; said : "' A. company's attendance is the worst in the area; and overy effort has booe made to bring the attendance up to a standard of efficiency. It has now been decided to prosecute in every case when the oadet absents himself from compulsoly parades without per mission. This lad, Freeman Lowry, has bebn absent from eight parades without leave." Defendant stated that on April 15th he was in the country, and when five miles out his bioycle broke down. That prevented his coming into town in time. Sergeant.lMejor A J Hudson deposed that on April 15th, he saw the defend ant ride paet the parrde on his bicycle. When seoken to, he said he wee living .on Dr taez3's farm five miles out. If he had fallen in at the parade end then asked for leave, no action would have been...
FARMING ON BUSINESS LINES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 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 the most of his labors, he must be in the position of knowing, with some degree of cer tainty, just what branch of his busi ness 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.flnd them selves involved in serious financial difficulties is largely due to the pro ductiveness of tIle land and a tribute t. their own hard-working industry. If the commercial man, faced on all sides with keen competition, carried o,. his business in the haphazard way the farme...
EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. Every man must study his own soil ard 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 fairner. Principles can be established, the needs of different crops can be learned, the composition of fertilisers can be determined, chemical and phy. Bica!. 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 larg...
PREPARATION OF SHEEP SKINS FOR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
PREPARATION OF SHEEP SKINS FOR MARKET. In the preparation of sheep skins tor market we would like to emphasise the care that is necessary in the tak ing off of the skin and its drying. The utmost care should be taken to avoid cutting or damaging the pelt when skinning. All fat or meat must be cut off, the leg and face pieces remov ed, and care exercised to prevent any blood or dirt getting on either the wool or flesh side. As regards drying, it is necessary first to spread out the skins in the shade and finish drying them either on wires or in sheds where the weath er cannot affect them. Particular care must be taken to dry the points of the skin. The skin should, when properly dried,-be folded in two, head to tail, wool. outside, and pressed into bund les, weighing about 1 to 11, cwt. In tying the bundles, it is just as well to see that the rope (or wire, if rope is not obtainable) is tied around each end, so that it is impossible for thieves to pull out skins during transit to mar...
DICKENS' BEARD. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
DICKENS' BEARD. On December 29, 1855, the men of the French "Army of the Orient" the Crimean veterans who had storm eJ the Alma heights side by side with the British troops, who had come to the timely assistance of the redcoats a- Inkermann, and hadl captured the great Mailkhoff fortress, the key of Sebastopol-were passed in review by thIe French Emperor in thle Place V'en dome. Two interesting features mark ed this memorable parade-which, by the way, one may see faithfully repro duced in miniature at the Paris "Army Mluseum." One was the presence of the sur vivors of Napoleon I.'s Imperial Guard, tlIe heroes of Austerlitz and Wagram, of Jena and VWaterloo. Bent and shrunken in their quaint, old-fashion ec, uniforms, they were appropriately grouped around the base of the Ven dome Column, the lofty shaft of bronze -sculptured with scenes of battle, cast by the Emperor's decree from the cannon his soldiers had captured from their foes. Less conspicuous, but equally note worthy, was th...
ARGENTINA'S WHEAT INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
ARGENTINA'S WHEAT INDUSTRY. Argentina, inspite of poor market facilities and a backward farming po pulation, already ranks third among the three wheat-exporting countries of the world. Its area devoted to wheat cultivation has doubled during the past ten years, and is three times as large as it was only flteen years. ago. -There is every prospect, too, of a still greater advance in the near future. Owing to conditions of cli mate and soil, Argentina cannot, it would seem, enter into serious com petition with Canada in the produc tion of "strong" wheat. Blarleta wheat, originally brought from Italy, forms about 70 per cent. of the crop, and Russian wheat 20 per cent., while the remaining 10 per cent would in clude various classes of wheat, tome of which are grown specially for mak ing macaroni. In a general way, Ar gentine wheats are classed in the in ternational markets as intermediate in character between the soft white wheats of Australia and the Pacific Coast, and the herd red wh...
FLOCK MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
FLOCK MANAGEMENT. If strong, healthy . and vigorous lambs are wanted, extra care must be given to ,the ewe flock from time of mating to time of lambing. During this time the ewes should be steadily gaining in flesh. It is not desirable that the ewe flock after mating should ever have to become the scavengers of the farm; that business should be lett for store sheep. The ewe flock is too valuable for that work, for it is from this flock that the future feeding lamb is obtained. One often hears of heavy losses be ing experienced by sheep breeders through ewes being frightened by dogs and other causes, and this brings to mind reasons that ought to be up permost in the minds of all those who have charge of lambing ewes. Among them there is one precaution that should never be absent, and that is this: That the ewe flock should never be allowed to be rushed by the shep herd's dog, nor should it be hurried when being driven, nor under any cir cumstances should it be given an opportunity to...
Clearing Himself. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
Clearing Himself. Murphy was an assistant cook on board a "trooper" bound for India. The first morning he forgot to wash the boiler out after breakfast; con sequently, there were tea-leaves on the surface of the soup when dinner was served. To clear himself of blame, he went to the respective messes, and. said: "If yez foind any tay-leaves in the soup you'll know it's mint."
Others He had Heard Of. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
Others He had Heard Of. It was company field training. The captain saw a young soldier trying to cook his dinner with a badly made fire. Going to him, he showed him how to make a quick-cooking fire, say ing: "Look at the time you are wasting. When I was on the West Coast, I often had to hunt my breakfast. I used to go about two miles in the jungle, shoot my food, skin or pluck it, then cook and eat it, and return to the camp under the hall hour." Then he un wisely added: "Of course you have heard of the West Coast?" "Yes, sir," replied the young sol dier, "and also of Ananias, George Washington, and de Rougemont."
Civilisation or Naturalisation? [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
Civilisation or Naturalisation? An election canvasser was going his rounds. He clled at a house occupied by a Belgian and his family. The lady answered the door. "I should be pleased, madam," said the canvasser, "if you would tell me whether your husband is naturalised or not." "Naturalised!" exclaimed the wo man, indignantly. "Why, what do you mean? Do you think I married a savage?"
CROPS FOR FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
CROPS FOR FODDER. The time seems opportune to di rect the attention of farmers to the necessity of planting fodder crops, and for their subsequent conservation as a provision for stock and feed dur Jrg the winter. The weather this season has been very dry, and in al most every district absence of rain has been severely felt. The nlan who does not take this wise precaution of providing winter feed will have a grim realisation of his lack of forethought when he finds his dairy herd, and other stock, languishing for the food which Nature withholds during her unpropitious seasons. It is, however, quite within the pro vince of the farmer to conserve suffi cient fodder for his stock to tide over the winter. There are so many ex amples of the splendid results from silos that it is hard to conceive why the practice of making silage has not become more general throughout the State. When we have the managers of but ter and cheese factories reporting "thie satisfactory increase of milk supplie...
SIZE OF SHEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
SIZE OF SHEAF. There can be'no set size for a sheaf, -s the size must be regulated accord ing to conditions. For instance, in w:et districts, or where the crops are late in maturing, the small sheaf is the safer, as the sun and willd are better able to penetrate through the sheaf, and so minimise the risk of sprouting or moulding about the band. Again, by making the sheaves on the small size, stacking can be commenc ed a day or two sooner. On the oth er hand, however, the large-sized si-eaves have their advantages. First, it is more economical on twine; sec ondly, much time is saved in stook ing and stacking; thirdly, a fair-sized sheaf will stand up against winds in the stook better than the small size.
FOR THE FARMER. THE ROTARY DISC PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
FOR THE FARMER.. THE ROTARY DISC PLOUGH. SThe rotary disc plough possesses the following advantages over the mould-board implements: i. Owing to the construction. and movement of the discs the draught is greatly reduced, and the capacity of the implements considerably increas ed. 2. Their great power in breaking up hard land makes it possible to com mence the ploughing of stubble land much earlier than is the case when mould boards are used, thus increas ing the capacity of the soil to re ceive and retain litoisture at a season when, under ordinary conditions, sat isfactory mould board work is im practicable. 3. The work is more cheaply done. The discs are so placed that one disc forces the broken soil sideways against the next one, pulverising it and performing the operation of pack ing, thereby improving the seed bed and preventing the escaped moisture to a greater extent than is possible in the more open work of other ploughs. Preference should be given to implements that have th...

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 tonneat of her' motor-car, and there she slipped the money into hIis hand. His face lit up with an amazing joy. "Oh! mother, you are a brick!" he exclaimed. "Is it as much as I asked for, mother?" "Yes, Ralph; there are fifteen hun dred pounds in notes in that bundle" "Mioth!" exclaimed the young man. "you really are a wonder!
