GOOD MONEY EXCHANGED FOR BAD. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 24 April 1914

GO00 MONEY EXCHANGED FO1. BAD. It may not be generally known al though it is a woll-authentioated faot, that there is a recognised market for ('ILOuteI'lel coin, an tha that this undo sirable coatumodity coumuands'a stand Lar' Suill I c OxCIIanye Ior good money. Il way of example, counterfeit elorins of the best make are retailed at the round rate of 12/ a dozen. Shillings of a superior sort are sold at 7] a dozen. Strange though it may seem, the better class of counterfeit coins will bear the most minute inspeotion, and is readily received by all but ex ports. lhere are, of course, a more conmmon set of "smasherrs," who turn out an inferior kind of coin. These pass at a lower rate amongst the fraudulent fraternity. From such folk shillings may be had for 2/ a dozen, while florins of a baser sort demand 3/ a dozen. The craft of the counterfeiter, by reason of the admirable detective system now at work against it, is one that. requires the imost suitllo skill and secreoy to en srl' s...

AIR AND THE SKIN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 24 April 1914

AIR AND THE SKiN. Dr. I'aul \V. Goldsbury. in an ar ticle on 'Skii Tension and Air Bath ing." in'the "Lancet-Clinic." makes an i?r.cnt plea for air baths. IHe contends that we should give the skin air inst as we eive it water. and that t)ic pressure of clothes on cer tain parts of the body is very pre judicial to health. "Extensive stu dies," writes I)r. Goldsbury. "are now being carried on which tend to show the economic waste as to hu man etliciency in factories and wort rooms where excessive conditions of temperature and humidity pirevail.

Birds that Speak. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 24 April 1914

Birds that Speak. The parfot is generally supposed to have the monopoly of the power of talk inug among iirids, but as a matter of fact, the r.rrol is decidedly inferior to the myaynh. There ate always exnniples of these birds in the insect house at the Zoo and they repeat various phrases with great clearness of utterance. Curiously enough the hen has a gruff voice, while the cock speaks in a clear high tone, like that of a child. The my nahs can be easilyprovokcd into shoving off their power of speech, and will greet the visitor with "Good morning" in re spouse to his salutations. The mynah is a kind of starling, and this latter bird is well known for its initative powers. Some years ago an account was published of a " talking canary," which could ar ticulate quite plainly, and would repeat a series of phrases.-[Pall IMall Gazette. NhAn Columbus, Ohio, alot of hogs set upon a heifer and a young calf and de vour ed them. In an adjoining pasture a drove of cattle became infuriated at...

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

NATURE STUDY. In "Chambere's Journal" for Sep lumber, Harriet Finlay-Jolhnson has some inlteresting and informative re Imarks on education in aIn :i~ticle en titled "The , D)lramatic Method of Teaching." It describes how two chil dren educated themselves, and in doing so secured that wider education that does not come out of books: - The Heath (it was Hamlpstead Heath, to be exact), was indeed a veritable fairy land to Eva and Dit. They were the keenest of nature students in days long before nature study was mention ed and accepted in school codes as a "subject" for the time table. And think how many years elapsed before anyone dared to smuggle in "nature study" as a sort of eduoational luxury to be used sparingly in school hoursl The two little nature students map. ped out every inch of the Heath; they knew the names of all the flowers, and, what is more, they knew the ha bits, structure, and workings of those flowers and plants at all different seasons.

WILL JAPAN CAPTURE CHINA? [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 24 April 1914

WILL JAPAN CAPTURE GCIINA? An Amnerican writer, with some title to respect as an authority on Eastern affairs holds thlat in the long run Japan will absorb Ci:la, and them will emeorge a great Yellow Empiro, which will af foot the whole balance of civilised pow er. He says: China, with her wealth, natural re sources, aid millions of hard-working, industrious individuals, is too great a prize to be lost for lack of a master. The master will arrive, and China's sail. lions will be halunlered into shape. Ja.pa is a perfectly' organised ma dhino for war. She is young, virile, militant, Her people are few, and her natural resources and acres fewer. She needs people, land, anld wealtih-and what site needs and must have lies at her feet, practically hlolpless. It is merely a question of tinme when she will take possession.

UUAL PURPOSE SHEEP. The production' of a dual ipurpose sheep is becomiiiig of greaterl import, i.ace than the duel purpose cow. As ti.tliiiement has gone along at a rapid r.eio in all the States, to thu aecoim lIaniment. of mixed faninug, it has be cone a matter of great illportance to secure the type of sheep which will give the best generai'returns.

CARE OF FARM IMPLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 24 April 1914

CARE OF FARM IMPLEMENTS. Of course, a well constructed tool house is the best place ini which to store and care for farm imlplements, but the injority ot farms do not have them. On most farms the tool-shed is cirou lar; its roof is the firmament and the ,ircular wall is the horizon. This is not always because the farmer does not appreciate the boeunits derived from well-constructed shelter for his tools but more often because lie does not fee that his financial condition will warrant the building of such shelter. These words are written for the benefit of the man that does not have adequate shelter for his tools in the hope of help. ing him in giving his implements thu best care possible unider the circumnstan ces until such time as ho can afford ti build a tool shed. In the first place, where an iniple iment is constructed partly of wood remove the vwooden parts and give then either a coat of paint or qf crudo koro seino.

C KITCHEN HINTS. a'J FOR BUSY HOUSEWIVES. If tiny corks are tacked on the baos of the lower corners of pichure-frames, they will prevent the line of black dual forming on the wall-paper which so of, tenl prevents rehanging pictures. When baking cakes,, particularly where a gas-stove is used, the tin which conitains the cake should be put inside another tin which has a layer of sand. This will prevent it from burning. To prevent fire bars turning red, rub with a raw onion or weak treacle and water, then apply the blacklead with a rag or soft brush, and you will get a brilliant polish which will remain To hang pictures on a plastered wall try dipping the nail into cold water before driving it into the wall. It will bite into the plaster if this is done, and will hold a heavy weight without loosening. To boil milk without fear of burning, ,put two or three tablespoonfuls of wa ter in the saucepan; let It boil rapidly for two or three minutes; add the milk, and it will not burn, however...

THE MILKING PERIOD. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 1 May 1914

* THE MILKINC PERIOD, •he short way with the poor milker is to weed them out. A cow in poor condition may be allowed two months in which to recruit her strength. In the ease of the average cow the milk ing can be continued until within a mouth of calving. If-a cow is in low condition, it is better to resort to higher feeding than to dry off. Cows are known that have been treated thus for years, sometimes being milked to within a month of calving, that have carried as goodt an appearance and produced equally good calves as those which run dry nearly three times as long. Six weeks may be considered Ithu average period during which a cow should be diy unless the circumstances are exceptional. It is, however, the extraordinary milker that occasions the greatest difficulty. Tihere are some deep milkers that are the despair of their owners, who would often enough be willing to accord them a reasonable period of rest if there was a possibility of drying them off without having to take cons...
