A MATTER OF PRECAUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 24 April 1914

A MATTER OF PRECAUTION. One day a very nervous, timid-looking woman, accompanied by a robust far mer man, came on the platform of a little railway station at a remote coun try spot. For a short time she seem ed to devote her attention to the time table, -but not finding her the satis faction she sought, she stepped up to the station-master as he came out of the olice. "Will you please tell me if the 3.15 has gone yet?" she asked, in apparent content. "Yes, about 20 minutes ago," he replicd. "And when will the 4.30 come along, do you think?" "Why, not for some time yet, of course." "Are-there any ex presses before then? P "No," "Not one?" "Any luggage trains?" "No." ."Nothing at all?" "Nothing what ever." "Are you quitesure? "Cer tainly, I am, or IIwouldt't have said so." "Then," said the timid woman, turning to her husband, "I think we'll cross the tracks, William."

AGRICULTURE IN GERMANY. Edited at the English Foreign Of fice and Board of Trade, the report of the Consul-General for the important distriot of Dusseldorf has just been is sued. This report contains some highly instructive information ebout the posi tion of agriculture to Germany, and affords a glannd at its enormous deove loiment. Thlo wheat and sugar beetroot crops of 1912 were very much larger than those of 1911. Unfortunately, tile quality of the crops was somewhat marred by the unpropitious weathei; the latter rather- spoiled the spring sown barley and oat crops, and all the wheat orops suffered from the wet sum mer. The rye crops, which ripen ear lier, were good, both in quantity and quality. The statistics for the last three years show an increase of 300,000 tons ins the wheat crop and an increase of 732,000 toens in the rye crop. The rye crop of 1912 was a record one. The oat and barley crops were larger in 1912 than 1911, and tihe potato crop of 1912 surpassed that of 1911...

- PIG-RAISINCi, ... If you intend to raise pigs the farst sling to consider is a good run. ii you have not got this, do not think ut raising pigs in a. sty.

THE DRUG IN THE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 24 April 1914

THE DRUG IN THE MARKET. The fare. that opium to the value ot £12,000,000 is denied access to the Chi. nese marker gives rise t( some mixed reflections. Great Britain is the chant. pion of Christianity in the Far East. and is the natural protector of those. trading under her flag, and it oc!:sion. ally happens to he impossible-to 2rain. tain two roles. The editor of the 'I.e publican Advocate,;' (Shanghai), has t few straight things to say: "Muitch though one may sympathise vith the financial loss which the pro. sent stringent regulations against opi. um in the provinces must involve. there is a vital moral principle, far outweighing every financial considera tion which the British Governaent has to lace in the present solution of the problem. It is a question which not only involves the sacred rights of hii mianity, but, also, of whether the Gov enrment is prepared to face the re sponsibility of millions ,of Chinese whose welfare for bad or for worse depends upon the issue of the pr...

"WONDERS OF THE SOUTH SEAS." [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 24 April 1914

"WONDERS OF THE SOUTH SEAS." Mr. Jack London, the novelist, spent four years on a cruise of exploratioa among the primitive races of the is lands of the Southern Pacific. One of his companions took a series of views,' partly slide, but mainly moving pictures, illustrative of the habits and customs of various peoples; and of the physical features, the plants and animals of the islands. Among the islands visited were Fiji, the Solomon, New Guinea, Borneo, Sumatra, and Java. It is remarkable how willingly the people allowed themselves to ,',! '/photographed. Even in places which are said to have been hitherto unex plored by white men, the natives, natu rally wild and shy, obviously showed much delight in posing for the cin, matograph. Some strainge lmethod, , : personal adornment were illustrated.

WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD BE UP? [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 24 April 1914

fWHICH END OF A POST:SHOULD . BE UP? . . It us a very common belief among farmers, remarks the "Scientific Am erieoiii,' that a post will last longer if set in the ground the reverse of the. way it grew in the tree; in other words, with the butt end up. Accordingly, one sees many posts, especially end and gate-posts, with the small end down. :1?be supposition is, that sap in?a tree is always ascending; or, at least, that it is easier for the sap to go up than cdown. Consequently, it is argued. .turning a post upside down tends to prevent the rise of water, helps to keep the wood-dry, and therefore renders it less liable to decay. As a matter of fact, sap or water can flow in either dircotion with equal facility, and the popular notion to the contrary is in correct. Careful experiments on the relative durability of post timbers have been made by the Ohio Agricultural Experi mont Station, and the above question was considered. One fence in particu lar oontaincd 156 black locust posts,...

AFRICAN LAME SICKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 24 April 1914

AFRICAN LAME SICKNESS. An investigation of the South Afri can-disease known as lamnziokle, or lame siokness; suggests that it is due to a special plant poison that is generated under abnormal conditiozis. in grasses or other plants that are nominally harm less. Its development seems to be as sociated with unusual weather and soil experiences, of which summer drought is important. Through such conditions wilting would favour the formation of the poison, and this gives explanation for the common belief that the disease results from eating wilted plants. Chicago recently passed a .bye-lanw re quiring all windows in tall: 6flice build to be' so constructed as to be wash able from the inside.

House-Breaking. Owing to the smartness of a little boy named Donald Downs and hMr Alfred Neville, two house-breakers were brought to justice at the Sey mour court on Saturday last. It appeared that on Good Friday morning the boy Downs saw a mal go into Blum's house and another man enter Lake's dwelling in Vic toria street. At the time both places were unoccupied. -He saw the man who came out of Lakes drop a parcel. The boy immediate ly ran to Mr A. Neville, who lived near by, and informed him of the circumstance. lie went to the place and saw a man go round the back of Lake's house, and he also went round and sang out if there was anyone at home, but got no reply. He heard a noise resembling the moving of drawers and people mov ing about. On going round the other side he saw a swag lying under the window, which was broken. He then went and tele, phoned for the police. Constable Henderson was soon upon the scene, and had the good fortune to drop across his prey, as they were fast mak...

PREVENTION OF MILK FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 24 April 1914

PREVENTION OF .MILK FEVER. Frequent milking, but only a little at a time, is found one of the best pre ventires, and for this reason leaving the calf with the cow (some say for 24 hours; but for a week is better) is generally successful. As gross feed ers, good doers, and heavy milkers are more liable, it is a good plan to take these off green feed, and put on a spare diet of dry fodder a week before calving. About three or four days be fore calving a purgative. is advisable. For this, Soy. glauber salts, loe. gin ger, and a little treacle, .in a quart of water, will be found effective. Ab the accepted oure by means of pure air pumped into the udder seems to point to the fact that an anaerobic (without air) bacteria is the cause, it is advis able on this and other grounds to vig arously disinfect floor and walls of byres, rugs, utensils, etc., and flnsh out the oow. A milk-fever outfit should always be kept, so that pure air can be pumped in, and the udder and sur rouidinigs disinfe...

ELECTRICITY ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 24 April 1914

ELECTRICITY ON THE FARM. -Electricity is a coming power in New Zealand, where there is an ample sup ply of rapidly-running water to afford menus for its generation. When the Lake Coleridge scheme, now being car ried out in Canterbury, is completed in a few years' time, a decided lift should be given to this modern source tf power and light. A number of Ian :rrs and station-holders have al ready installed their own plants in various parts of the country. A Dan neivirko (North island) farmer put in an electric plant soano years ago. By its means he lights his house his shear ing sheds, and all out-buildings, saws his wood, turns his churn, runs his clhiiffutter, and does a hundred and one other things required on the farm. From : sowit ch in his own bedroom he con ti;rls the whole of the lighting.
