PREPARING THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
PREPARING THE LAND. Much has been heard during the last year or two as to the value of explo sives for sub-soiling land intended to be planted with fruit trees and vines, and some authorities have made out, on paper, strong arguments in favor of their use. The lecturer in viticul ture and fruit culture at the Itose worthy College, South Australia, how over, is doubtful if the work by such means can be performed as effective ly and economically as with teams and the ordinary implements used for the purpose. He considers that by adopting the usual method of sub soiling a more uniform layer of soil will be obtained to a depth ranging from IS to 24 inches, and the cost of Buch work may be put down at be tween £4 and ,£G per acre. Ou the other hand, he reckons that to secure equally satisfactory results with ex plosives the cost will work out at £20 an acre. In a comprehensive article in "The Journal of Agriculture" Mr. Latter speaks highly of the English ditching plough, which is design...

WORK THE SOIL NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
WORK THE SOIL NOW. All orchard soils should lie kept well worked during the summer mouths. It is very essential that these should have an abundant supply of moisture during the whole of " the growing season. The transpiration from fruit and foliage is considerable at any time hut during the hot and windy weather the amount of mois ture which is required by a tree, and which is ultimately transpired from the tree, is very exceptional. Excessive transpiration is often the cause of loss of young trees an 1 ,.f new grafts. They are found to p.ut with a large amount of moisture, :m-l are not able to retajn of obtain suf ficient for their nourishment; thov then very soon wither and die The ioil r-round these should be kept well stirred, they should also be giver i good straw mulch.

Grown-Up Children. A railway guard related ail amusing liitlc incident tile other day. 1 "At an out-of-the-way little station I in the North," he said, "a party of | working men 'Wished to book to a 1 town in she Midlands.

Alfred IJarmsworth (now Lord Northcliffe), who first devised per sonal journalism ill tabloid form through the medium of "Answers," is, after 20 years, the most influential private public man in the three King doms. Some people are apt to bolt with the idea that success commands success, and that once a man has arrived lie can sit down serenely and lortune comes to liim cap in hand. I happen to know that there is 110 harder worked man in England than Lord Xorthclift'e.

CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. How much is expected of little chil dren in the way of politeness when none is ever shown them. Their lit tle legs carry them on many an er rand for you and never a "Thank you, dear," for encouragement, when the poor little heart longs to hear it, for it is so human in all of us to want approbation. Think of your little ones oftener, mothers. You are their all; they turn to you for their wants, and are often disappointed. Some children's souls and hearts are starv ed for want of kindness. Try what a little bribe will do instead of pun ishment; a slice of cake promised for more perseverance, or reward for ef forts to do better. A very small piece of money will make the heart of many a child joyful for a long time. Try to study their natures more. All chil dren cannot be managed alike any more than grown persons. And the present of a pet puppy or a bird— will make a good child often, when punishment fails. Love the little ones more, they have their rights, ...

COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. Come now to the actor's everyday life. If you ure a comedian you can't get any sympathy. Ever hear two men discussing the illness of a co mcdlan? Jones will say, "1 hear Jack Cannot lias appendicitis."' "You don't say," grins Brown. And then they both burst out laughing. If an actor happens to be a tragedian it is the other way about. Every happy little episode in his life is referred to Avith 'bated 'breath. "Did you hear about H. 13. Irving winning a thousand at the ponies?" Smith will say. "Dear me," Robinson will reply; and they will look as if they had heen asked to have a last look at the body before the lid is screwed down.—Fred Niblo on the disadvantages of being an ac tor, in "Theatre Magazine." "I owe my success chiefly to obser vation, imagination and coneentra tion.

"A'richt, sii'." was the lad's, reply, as he went dVer to a neighboring fountain and made his ablutions. Re turning, he held out his hand for the money. "Well, my lad." said the professor, "you have earned your sixpence. Here it is." "I dimia want it. auld chap," return ed the boy, with a lordly air. "Ye keep it and got yer hair cut."
HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. The man, or woman, who wants to be as good-looking as nature will per mit is given a few practical hints in the "Family Doctor":— Don't eat your meals quickly; this causes indigestion and a red nose. Don't worry; other people's troubles are quite as bad as yours. Don't forget that a penny spent on fruit does more good' than a shilling on buns or sweets. Don't walk five miles one day and stay at home all the next. Don't read till midnight; one hour's sleep before twelve is worth five afterwards. Don't shut your bedroom window; fresh air is necessary for health. Don't expect physics and tonics to keep you well if you neglect the laws of health and hygiene. I
BOWLED OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
HOWLED OUT. About once a month this paper re ceives picture postcards and other photos from Westralians abroad, par ticularly from Egypt, showing the tra i vellers on camel-back in tiie vicinity of the Pyramids and Sphinx. ! .More than often we have been in ■ clincd to doubt the ibona-fides of some ; of those photos, as the senders were known to have gone straight on through the Suez Canal to Europe, not ; stopping at Egypt, as shown in the ; pictures. Then we remembered that i in Port Said are studios where you can have the photo of your head put i 011 the bodies of tourists who have really been taken close to the mighty memorials of the ancient kings of Egypt. Last week, however, one arrived that completely gave itself away. In it a well-known Westralian and his wife were seen seated on donkeys standing close to the Pyramids and Sphinx. Close examination showed the back ground of desert, Pyramids, and Sphinx to 'be raked in toy the double photo process, tlii) picture of the tour i...
