THE MANAGEMENT OF YOUNG PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 11 June 1914
THE MANAGEMENT OF YOUNG PIGS. Our views as to what weight a pig should reach vary enormously. A frienu of my own, once a well-known Berk shire breeder, made his pigs' into ba coners- m about thirty weeks or into, porkers in. sixteen weeks, but I do not think that in these later days he would be satisfied with the results, for months is a long period to feed a youngster for prune meat, whereas il the meat were too heavy tho reduced price would remove all the incentive. A porker pig should pay veiy well in sixteen weeks and not be too fat, as just as in tho case of the baooner t-i -lets down the price. Another once famous breeder friend fed his pigs until his liams scaled 201b each, but these were only seven months old, yet they afford an excellent idea as to the gross ■weight of the carcase. The curer of bacon requires not only lean meat, but small meat, hence the ■weight of a -bacon pig should not ex ceed 1-10 to 160 lb., and it is; precisely •such meat which obtains the best, price...
WORTH A SECOND THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 11 June 1914
WORTH A SECOND THOUGHT. The chronic borrower is a neighbor-' hood nuisance. The best bosses are frequently the poorest workers. Prosperity has been the ruination of many a man. If you must carry a grievance around with yon, keep it to yourself. Ignorance is not bliss when you are in the hands of a sharper. If your wife is a good cook don't for get to tell her so. She deserves the praise. The man who keeps the corners of' his'.mouth turned up is,.a'public bener factor. - '■ • ; ' ' The clock never complains of being: overworked, and.it puts-in every • min ute, too 1 If tho reins ure drawn too tightly , the young folks are liable to run away from home. Because a couple are fine-looking is no sign they will get along fine once, they are married. Many a cow- kicks because tbat- is tho only way; she can tell you that: something is wrong. If it becomes necessary to destroy the little kittens, don't let the children seo you do it. It's queer how many men have busi ness in a neighboring tow...

POULTRY NOTES. Too many chicks spoil the brood. A chick in the nest is worth two in the' mind. • . The less the help the stronger the ohioks. '■ . .. The proof of the hatching is the chirp of the chicks. . .. The chick will never grind.'with; the grit it. never gets. . Grit is a virtue in man and fowl. Tho lazier the hen the -smaller the profits. ; Eggs to the number of ■ 21,'500,000 were imported ■ into Great/Britain last year. This interesting fact is reported by Mr. E. Brown, F.LiS.,;in.his an nual review of tile poultry industry. "At no time," he states, "has the de mand been so great and prices so good as in the twelve months recently elid ed. In 1913 thero was a considerable riso in the volume of: eggs and,poultry . | received from overseas, as compared with 1912, yet prices have, been grea tor.

MELBOURNE LETTE'K (Froh Our Special Correspondent.) If there be any ioundation for re cent revelations anent. the system un der which certificates are issued to as piring motorists, it is hardly a matter for wonder tliat accidents are many, and that the man at the wheel is an atnema to "the average pedestrian. The way has been easy ior'applicants for certificates. A correspondent-toils how. He says:—"There is a great 'outcry against' the reckless' driving of motor- s ears and the consequent Killing and maiming of people. Not once-have I heard mentioned what I think is the real root of the whole trouble — the reckless and oareless way in which the authorities hand out licences. I think inquiry avouid show the following to be about the method adopted:—Mr. Anyr body buys a motor and wants to drive it. Ho knows nothing about driving a mule, much less a motor-car. He takes two or three lessons from a gar age attendant, and>ihen. invites a mem ber of the police force, who knows as much...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 11 June 1914
WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosine.") There is a perfect crazo for tulle. Hats are made of if, or trimmed with it, and it makes the necessary vest to the simple little bodices which we ore wearing. The tendency nowadays is all ior transparency as regards the ad juncts of our dress. Bverything is ephemeral, and how light, how fly away, how transparent, is the goneral scneme! 'A frame of the softest shad ! o.vy tulle, chiffon, gauze, or lace sur rounds the face. It might be all blown away if it were not for a redeeming, utterly incongruous smart velvet , crown—and wo call it a hat. I saw ' j an in'staaoing model the other day, all [•clouds of shot grey, and violet tullo, crystallising into something which was 'half trimming, half crown; all one blur on ltw velvet, mauvo and grey. Almost tivery frock with pretensions to novelty is draped. The skeathliko underskirt, over which the tunic dis posed itself more or less gracefully is no-longer allowed, and the underskirt now receives as much ...

SLEEP AND SOME GREAT MEN. It was Cobden's boast that be eould sleep nt will. Said lio: "If I had not had the faculty of sleeping like a dead fish in five minutes after the most ex citing montnl effort, and with tho cer tainty of having oblivion for six con secutive hours, I should not have been alive now."

So. important w-as tdiis latter consideration* that he would, never compose anything after six o'clock nt night, as to do so would affect his sleop.

DEADLY WEAPONS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 11 June 1914
DEADLY WEAPONS. A French inrent-or has made a fright ful addition to tho efficacy of the re volver. A small but powerful electric light is aitached to the mechanism of a pistol of ordinary sir.e. Uy use of lenses and mirrors tho glare of tiio eircle of light which the lamp throws is bright enough to bo clearly seen in daylight against a 'light-coloured suit ot clothes. Now. the centre of the circle of light marked by a black spot, by arrange ment of the lenses, is exactly the spot where tho bullet will strike. Thus all one has to do is to place the black cen tre of tho blazing circlo of light over I the heart of an adversary and pull the I trigger. • At night the light is shockingly strong. Experiments with tho new wea pon show that perfect greenhorns, who have never used a revolver in their lives, can shoot far more accurately, than experts using an ordinary pistol. Up bo sixty yards ho cannot miss a small bul.'s-eye, day or night, wlii'c extremely accurate shooting is possible j u...
