PIGS ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 5 January 1915
PIGS ON THE FARM. The number of pigs that inay be grown on any farm, or rather, we might, say, be grown to n profit, will depend 'vjry iimcli ,0:1 tho liking tho farmor has for this ^branch oflivcLstock. If ho is interested in their management they will thrive,- and large numbers canrbe, kept,;}bnt if lio has 110 liking for pigs, and'whal he expects to got out of them is; the only feature which attracts him,V.tlioro will hardly be large i.imibers; gro\vii "and fatted on tlto form,-amljhin reputation as a pis breeder and grower will not be made. When -a farmer starts keeping pigs with the idea of making them the most important of the animals he keeps 011 the farm, he should arrange his farm with that object in" view, and stick to the arrangement.-' .A pig farm cannot bo put into shape for business at once, ort&lt;l it can only be made to produce the most profit by keeping regularly at it. Do not keep too large a number of breeding sows, although this is a very common error. T...
DISTRICT NEWS. Tamleugh North. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 5 January 1915
DISTRICT NEWS.' (From our Correspondent.) Tamleugh North. A very severe thunderstorm accom panied by wind, rain and hail passed over this district on Xrnas day. Tho wind which blow with hurricana force caused 'considerable damage, many houses and outbuildings being partially unroofed. The Catholic school at Oatii ambo West, wliicli lms been used as a hall only for many years, was com pletely wrecked. The local State school had a narrow escape as several limbs were carried to within a few feet of the building. Fencing sufJoied severely with the fulling timber,and in some instances great expense will be incurred in repair ing the damage done. The hail-stones broke tho windows at Mr E. P. Ke&ley's residence, and are described as larger than pigeon eggs. The rain, which fell in torrents, has had the effect of replenishing the water supply in dams and tanks, it has also caused a nico spring in the grass, which it is to be hoped will continue.

STRATHBOGIE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 5 January 1915
STRATHBOGIE. Those who arc using. harvesters tins season sneak favorably of the work done, ana it is likely that they .will bo more generally used in the future, as the tabor problem has become ,so difficult. The margin ot profit under the old system was too small ta en courage cultivation to any extent. , The rainfall has been particularly, welcome to dairymen, as it cams in good time to help on green fodder crops, which look very, well at pre sent, especially where properly culs" . tivated. V This is noticeable on the farm o£ Mr. Cronyn, where a beautiful crop of maize is lo be seen, planted in drills and cultivated with the horse hoe. Vegetables of all kinds, and potatoes, are a pleasing sight on the samo farm. Mainly through the eltorta o£ our re spected member, Mr. M. K.

THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXXI. "WE WERE CHUMS." [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 5 January 1915
; THE MASTER PASSION. CI1 AT'TKH xxxr. ''WJ! AVIOUK CHUMS." When ('is Devon.'! parted from Ida Duval, his manner might have been like ice, but, his heart was on lire. He was disgusted to think that a woman whom he though unworthy of his love should have such power over him. It seemed a sign of weakness, iiot to be able to trample on an afl'ection which he had tried to drag up by the roots. Tho touch of her little hand upon his arm made the blood tingle in his veins, though he walked by her side in stern .silence. Perhaps he might have relaxed a little more, if he had been more sure of himself; but his heart had nearly burst with indignation, when he caught Belgrave by tho collar, and he was afraid of speaking one word lest he should say too much. Better to go away and leave her to think liim cold and "cruel, than stay anil risk the dan ger of a tete-a-tete," ami the after-peace of three lives. Ho had the unselfish courage to go, whilst a weaker man would have hail the cowardice to s...
