THE SENATE PRE-ELEC TION. ISSUES AT STAKE. The ballot for the candidates who ave to contest the "Victorian Senate seats in the interest of the Liberal party closes this week. Many Libcr:.]s may be tempted to underrate the im portance oi the issues at stake. TJiov note that in 1910 the vote fcr the Senate was ticket pure and simple, that in 1913 it was solid ticket in five of the six States. Thoy noto further that a man of mark like Sir Josiah Symon failed ignotniniously .when he ran as independent, and that a number of very obscure, and some what feeble candidates were returned by Labor, simply and solely, because they were "officially endorsed." " Names have lost their weight," they reflect, " men like Symon, and the lato Sir "William Lyne fell whon with out solid party backing ; a new comer defeated Sir John Quick on his own ground, when the swing of the party pendulum favored the tyro. IVe are Liberals, and when the time comes will support the chosen six be they whom they may." T...

THE. OSTRICH INDUSTRY. I South Africa produces annually (ostrich feathers to the value of £3,000,000, There is keen de I maud for them in the markets of I the world, with no prospect of overproduction" According to travelled pxprrts, the State of Vic-! toria should be able "to produce : quite as many ostrich feathers as South Africa- Our climate Con di Dions are ideal, while in the matter of food production the irrigation districts of the State stand unexcelled- There is no finer fodder known for the raisins and maintenance of ostriches than: lucerne, which, under the influence of irrigation, grows so abundantly in our northern dis tricts. It is stated on reliable authority that an acre ot lucerne as it can be grown in the north will comfortably support, at the rate of six matured birds to tho acre. Thfi average annual yield of feathers is worth at least £7 per annum, so on this basis, an acre of irrigated lucerne conver ted into feathers should be worth £i0 a year. Because of this ...

AGAINST WAR. DEMOCRATS PROTEST. The democracies of five nations were represented at a. recent in ternational Labor and Socialist demonstration at Kingsway Hall. London, and-the keynote nf tho meeting; was the need for Socialist unity and the determination to have " no more war." Anvone who expected to-.^ee fiarce^eyed foreigners^ wearing blazing red ties and uttering wild words against the capitalist and aristocrat, must have been disap pointed. The red tie (even in the case of Mr Keir Hardie, who pre sided) was conspicuously absent, the only touch of that color being the scarlet sashes worn by the stewardesses. On the platform.sat some of the, mildest-looking men, including M- Emile Va'nderveide, Chairman of the International Socialist Bureau, and a member of the Belgian House of ' Commons ; Herr Hclkenbuhr, a particularly benevolent-looking German, sin gularly like Mr Dan Irving,of the British Socialist Party, who sat by his side ; Mrs Kate Richard O'Hare, representing American So...

FEEDING FARM HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 28 April 1914
DEEDING FARM HORSES. The Department of Agriculture of New South Wales deals with the feeds employed for working horses on the various State farms. A. feature is the general' use of maize-grain, and the employment of such hays as sorghum, millet and planter's friend. The Hawkesbury ration is'181b. chaff, 91b. crushed maize, 31b- bran, or 41b or Sib. lucerne mav be substi tuted for the br'in, fed three times a day. During the winter months an average of 101b- chaff per .horse is put into troughs in the paddocks at night. No grain al lowance is given on Sundays. The allowance of maize in com parison with oats is, as a rule, 5 lb- maize to 4lbv oats ; and, where the feed can be varied, oats are fed in the summer, maize in the winter. The increased use of lucerne hay is 'noticeable, nearly every ration mentioned containing it as part of the mixture. Ex perience has taught that ensilage, even when mixed with sound dry chaff, is of no use for working horses. For working horses the grain is...
Others He had Heard Of. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914
Others He had Heard Of. It was company field training. The captain saw a young soldier trying to cook hiB 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 breakfaBt. I used to go about two nliies in the jungle, shoot my food, skin or pluck it, then cook and eat it, and return to the camp under the haU 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, GcorRO Washington, and de Rougemont."

FEATHERED WITH BOTTLES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914
FEATHERED WITH BOTTLES. Baron Kenyon, at one tyme Lord Chief Justice of England, loved to hear himself talk, and his summings up were at times' extraordinary exam ples of flamboyant speech. Here is a specimen taken from "Law and Laughter": Addressing a butler convicted of stealing his master's wine, Lord Kne yon once said:-"Prisoner at the bar, you stand convicted on the most con clusive evidence of a crime of inex pressible atrocity-a crime that de files the sacred springs of domestic confidence, and is calculated to Btrike alarm into the breast of every Eng lishman who invests largely in the choice vintages of Southern Europe. Like the serpent of old, you have stung the hand of your protector. For tunate-in having a generous employer, you might without discovery have continued to supply your wretched wife and children with the comforts of sufficient prosperity, and even with some of the luxuries of affluence; but, dead to every claim of natural affection, and blind to your own rea...
HOW TO MAKE A WILL. A Thing that Everybody Should Know [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 1 May 1914
HOW TO MAKE A WILL. j A Thing that Everybody Should Know Too.much Btress cannot be laid upon the fact that it is the bounden duty of every person who is either the present or prospective owner of any property whatever-and especially when tills property be In the form of real eBtute -to make a will. The making of a will is a much neglected duty, especi ally with women, and yet it should be the desire of every person to leave his or her business matterB in such condi tion that, in the event of death, the survivors may, with the smallest ex penditure of time, energy and money, nettle the deceased affairs in the man ner which they know to have been the testator's wish. There is a very general impression that to dabble in legal matters of any kind whatever means considerable ex pense; but it may be as well to point nut. that a lawyer, as a rule, regulates his charges not only by the amount of work done, but by the ability of the client to pay. Go to any reliable solicitor, and tell him t...

That very night he saw Ro bert Holman, one of the leading pri vate uetectlvea In London, and placed in his hands the inquiry Into the af fair of Goldstein and Sheila's pearls, assuring him that he, Bellairs, would pay the £2000 on the day the pearis were brought back to him uninjured; but he was careful to caution 'Mr. Holman that an expert In precious stones must examine them -In order to see that no exchanges had l)een made. Holman undertook the job, and ex ecuted it with great dexterity, and Bellairs had the satisfaction of re covering Sheila's pearls at the loss of £2000, which he had been saving to wards his wife's future needB. He put them back carefully Into his safe, and then set Holman to discover where Ralph was hiding. The miser able youth was found witrfout much difficulty and brought hack to Sunny side by Holman, who, however, by the K.C.'s request, refused even to leave the room In which Ralph was seated until Bell...
