It presented itself on Christmas morning -witli shiny elbows, unoreased trorisers, and a cardboard box. 'For nme?" she cried. He nodded bashfully .

HOW THE WORLD IS FILLING UP. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 1 May 1914
HOW THE WORLD IS FILLING UP. Most people do not realise how the world is filling up now, and although we hear of millions of acre of land still unoccupied, yet the population is press ing already on the food supply. Pro bably the population now is ten timesc greoteir than it was, say, at the time of the Norman conquest, but it is increasing in geometrioal ratio, and the production of food is not increas lig accordingly. We are, as a matter oat fact, approaching the limit of food production. Twenty years ago, when ''the depression" was at the worst, a groat deal of wheat was sold at under 20/ per quarter. It has been rising over since, and although it is not much over 30/ still it toucnod 40/ last aut umn. We have the example of the United States, which is actually now importing food, and where the popula lation has .amdo up on the food pro duction. Thirty or forty years ago the reverse was the case, and we were drowned out in this country by Am erican produce. As the result of all t...

CARICATURE AND LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 1 May 1914
CARICATURE AND LIFE. The change in Paris fashions, where by absurdity is to give -way to com Inonsense, is, we are told, due rather to the ridicule of the caricaturist than to the thunder of the pulpit. The cable meiss ge serves to draw attention to the influence of caricature in social and ploltical life. Caricature, using the ord in its widest sense, is as olu as civil sation, though the 'forms of it w:th I which we are most familiar are ci :, iaric ely modern. Through the :it., it is been a rival, of the logician and the preacher as an agent of -re feorim or change. Oftein, too, it has been the enemy of logio. Aristophanes was a caricaturist, and somewhat simi lar methods.were used over two thou .ciud years later by Gilbert. But as civ lisation advances caricature become'cs muore varied. in form, andl its influence seems to incrdaso. : Certainly there never were so mainy:fokie's and so great a volume ofoaricature ?s there. are to day. While sin the narrow sense-in the sense, that...
PERFUMES NO LONGER CONDEMNED. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 1 May 1914
PERFUMES NO LONGER ,' CONDEMNED. A Hosme authority states that ucei fumes are no longll r onsidered tco,. demned as effeminate. Bath crystals are among the mlore popular forims of perfume, as they are refreshing an?] also soften the water. ) Public taste now shows a stroig l- te deney towards the mysterious scent, s that the old simple sccnuts like violet rose, and lily of the valley are giving way to perfumes ecomposedl of perlhaps as many as fifty different ingredienis -perfumes, for instance, like Shen-i:! Nessim. There is as much harmony and discord in porfumlner as in music, Harmony in the toilet can only be achieved by the use of the same per-. fume throughout, while, in the imak ing of composite perfumies, the smalle.,t graini too much or too littl, of :Iuy ingredient will cause as imluch disco d as when a pianist plays a wrong note.

S JUNIOR .MIGRATION TO VICTORIA.' (By Thos. ]. Sedgmwick, i ill Journal of Agricultur..") ... The rapid inorease of the mvoinent for tile migrationi of lads from Home to farms in Victoria and other parts 01 the Empiro has been ias rapid :during thel last few years as the growth of 1m migration to Australia generally. Although this miay at. first sight ap pear surprising, it-appears on exami nation to be only natural, as.junior mi gration within the Empire has the folb lowing advantages over adult migra tion: (1). 't' gives a lonmger life for the sanie fare. (2) Lads are more adaptable, learn more quickly, and. are more usetul, both in the houss and on the. farm, than men are. (3) Having no family dependent on them, the lads .can afford to at ti:act their relations out to them at m inominated rates of passioe. ' "(4) :.-They can learn and. save money 'at the same- time, and thus in ..a few years' tinie take up land themn ;: .. selves. -:(o) !Being .single; they can go up into thie ba...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 1 May 1914
O-F RURAL INTEREF"' (By "Rusticus.") There is every reason to commend ,the desire of the Minister of Agricul ture to increase the average yield of wheat in Victoria. It has already been shown that the adoption of pro per methods in the way of oultivation would add immensely to the annual yield of wheat, and, incidentally to the wealth of the State as a whole. The Government Statist's returns show that the maxinmum yield was obtained in the County of Borung, where an average of 18-16 bushels was harvested. The Minister of Agricul ture (Mr. Hutchinson) attributes this to. the fact that the farmers in that ,district- have always been to the front in adopting up-to-date methods of cul tivation, and in following the teach. ings of the-Agricultural department as regards minanuring, fallowing, and thor ough cultivation as a preparation of 'the land for wheat. Gladstone County was second on the list with 17.08 bushels, closely followed by Kara Kara with 17.23, and Lowan 16.24 bushels per ac...
