SPORT AND RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
SPORT AND RELIGION. "I do not bet," he said, "firstly, be cause ir I did it would offend some members of my congregation; second ly, because 1 do not think tiiat it is desirable; and, thirdly, because I think that it would be wrong for me, with niy meagre stipend, to bet. I simply cannot afford it. I appeal to all 'sports' not to allow their sport to drive them away from religion. If I they can .race and bet with a clean conscience, I do not think that God will be offended. There is nothing ■ wrong with clean sport any more than • with stock exchange speculations, and yet many people get up and denounce the evils ot gambling and never say a word about gambling oil the Stock Exchange. I am glad to be able to say that horse-racing is improving, j and 1 believe that it will continue to improve. I have much In common with sporting men, and I am always pleased to see faces in my church which I have seen at the races. It will be a sorry day for God and for the church when the feeling that...
FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. iTlie recent announcement in n con temporary tlmt the Ulster men lire trying to institute a demonstration, when every man, 'woman and child will -wear a flower as a token of their aversion to Home llule, reminds one liow often (lowers have been used as emblems. Since the leaders of the Yorkist and Lancastrian parties each plucked a rose iu the Temple Gardens, the Lan castrian a red and the York a white, this (lower has been a popular emblem. Apart from the fact that red roses are symbolical o£ love and white of purity, our national emblem is tlie rose; the Legitimist Party of France formed the League of the ltose In imitation of our Primrose League, ivhile owing to Gladstone's fondness for ■white roses many Liberals once wished to make them an emblem for their party, but the idea >was not adopt-' ed. The primrose, It is said, was Bea conslleld's favorite (lower, aud lias ibeen chosen iby his followers, who formed the Primrose League, as an envbleni, while in F...
Naqua, the Bushman [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
Naqua, the Bushman By Perceval Gibbon in the Pittsburgh "Sunday Magazine." The old yellow-ranged dog baboon that was chained to a post in .the yard had a dangerous trick ot throw ing stones. He -would seize a piece of rock in two hands, stand erect, and whirl around on his heels, till momentum was obtained, and then let go. This missile would fly like a,bullet, and woe betiile anyone who Kto&lt;jd in its way. The performance! precluded any kind ol aim—the stone was hurled off at any chance tangent—and it was rather bad luck than by any kind or malice that guid ed one or the boulders through the window, across the kitchen, and into a portrait of Judas do Beer, which hung on the -wall not half a dozen feet Irom lite slumbering Vrouw Gro belaar. . She bounded from her chair and ballooned to the door with a silent, swift agility most surprising to see in a lady or her generous build, and not a sound did she utter. She was of good South African veldt-bred fight ing slock, which n...
GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. I The dairy cow is one ot tlie best solutions for the problem of tin1 high cost of living. She not only furnishes cheap, wholesome, and nourishing foods, in the products of the dairy, but the manure, if saved nnd properly used on the land, will accelerato larger crops and more pro fits per acre. But we must have good herds. Probably in no other industry con nected with the soil is there more ne nessity for a complete reorganisation of the methods of working than in dairying. Although we have an in comparable climate for dairying the business is unsound at its base through the use of any kind of ani mal in the shape of a cow. No sane man would think of sowing the same kind of seed for a gr?' crop year after year when he ' y practi seed was less the' .&lt;ilf what it cal test that 1 .tifl from that seed was less t'. one-half what it should be. Yet it.en will go 011 milk ing and rearing calves for future use from cows which do not actually pay for their ke...
THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. As an iutance of the numbers of bacteria the common fly can carry, the following figures given by Pro fessor Easton may be cited: — I To caught 100 flies in a kitchen, put them in a pint of sterilised water and rinsed them about, and then examined the water, and found that he had rais ed sucli n number of bacteria off that each fly averaged over 300,000. He next caught a similar number in the cow barn, and they averaged over SOO.OOO each, another 100 in the pir pen, and they averaged over 1,000,000 each. It may be said that when one goes into a factory or house and find? many flies, one is immediately justi- . fled in condemning the sanitary sur- | rcundlngs of such premises. One c?n appreciate the fact that in factories Avhere flies abound it is next to im possible to keep tliera out of the milk, and the seeding of the milk by the bacteria which they carry must be very appreciable. The evil deeds o£ the fly need emphasising, as too many of us seein to think th...
DREAMS AND DREAMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
DREAMS AND DREAMERS. There are st'.'l, even in '.his enlight ened age, a number of snyerstiuoiis individuals who attach a meaning to certain dreams, ?i i »no wil: eagerJy refer to books oil ;tie g'ibjact, ii: older that they may ascertain me purport of some nocturnal reverie that is prob ably the outconu oC a l>ai digestion. If the sleep be ;.otni'l, llie digestive aud other organs ..to in. action, and the sleeper will -nass a perfectly un disturbed night. If, hoivever, any of the bodily functions are at all out of order, and more especially the diges tion, the nervous system will bo af fected, and an imperfect conscious ness will be the result. A dream is nothing more or less than an imperfectly formed thought, caused mostly by the individual not being at the time alive to the sur roundings; and die imagination, not being under control, will wam'^r un checked by circumstances, and the dreamer is under the impression that the ideas that flit through the brain are things which are...
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. Used in water as a daily gargle, borax keeps the throat healthy. Used iu water tor cleansing thd teeth it "disinfects" them and prevents their decaying. In wet weather clean the windows with chamois leather iu the usual way, then sprinkle a little (lour on the pol ishing duster. The result will be an easy and a brilliant polish. Should the inkpot be accidentally ups»t on tablecloth or carpet, pour a little cold water over it at once. The ink 'Will float on the water, and when cloth or carpet is rubbed- dry no stain will show. To prevent inferior potatoes from appearing watery when cooked, scrub, then score the skin lightly, length ways and across, all the way round, Coil in salted water. They will then be dry and floury. Before using a new saucepan al ways fill it with water. If not an en amelled one, add a lump of soda and potato peelings and let it boil for some hours. Then wash out thor oughly, and all danger of poisoning from .the tinned lining will be pre vent...
SELECTING THE MILK COW. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
SELECTING THE MILK COW. Nearly every good milk cow pos sesses certain points of conformation which indicate her milking qualities. The first important point is that she shall show a lean or bony form, with a sharp prominent backbone, ribs wide apart, sharp withers and inclin ing thighs. This indicates "dairy temperament," or, in other words, that she will turn her feed into milk instead of beef. Next she will have a long, deep bar rel, well sprung ribs, broad muzzle, and a strong jaw, tnese points indica' ing capacity for consuming larger amounts of feed. Third, she will show a hardy con stitution. which is indicated by a large heart girth, a deep chest, large open nostrils, and a large wind pipe and lung capacity. Fourth, a good dairy cow should have an udder of good size running well forward and hung up well be hind. The region of the pelvis or the hips is wide, as is also the space be tween the thighs as viewed from be hind, giving ample room for a large udder. A large udder is n...
DAIRYING. COWS AND FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
DAIRYING. COWS AND FERTILITY. On all pastures where cows and young stock have been grazed for many years without special means being taken to restore the losr, of phosphates; on all pastures abound ing in coarse grass and weeds 011 damp, rushy grounds, and on clay land pastures, an application of" 5 cwt. per acra will be found to pro duce satisfactory result during the first and subsequent seasons. The remarkable appearance of clover which follows closely upon such ail application is only to be accounted for by the stimulus which phosphaMc and calcic manures give to this class of plants. White clover throws out suckers and is of a creepitr; natarc, from which it derives its botanical name of repens. That the plant ex isted in a weak and 4pn:e condition previously cannot bo doubted, but a d'.esr.lnfr ol phosphate of lime causer. an unwonted development and vigor ous growth of bo'.h \\h't2 r:li>* &lt;r and other leguminous plants.
The Hint That Didn't. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
The Hint That Didn't. For ten lout; but blissful yours they bad walked along the path of love; but as.yet the love-sick youth had never mentioned about their getting married. Courtship is very charm ing, but when there does not seem to be altar vails at the end of it girls naturally begin to lose interest in the game. Anyhow, Jane thought it time that the marriage day was fixed, so she threw out a gentle bint to her lover by way of encouraging him. Kncour a^emcnt, she thought, was all the dear follow wanted. "Nathaniel," she whispered, coyly, "they're saying we're going to be married soon." "Arc they, though?" answered the stolid swain. "What a joke it'll be 011 tliem when they find out we ain't." Customer: This is the first time I've had n real tender bit of steak in this place. Waiter: Good heavens! I've given you the boss's steak! Women can blight a man's life with a smile.

CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. The rvalue of the cabbage as a feed for dairy cows is fairly generally known. It is a succulent feed, is highly relished by cows, is an ex cellent milk producer, and is rich in protein. But whilst its value is rea lised, many dairy farmers have a rooted obection to it on account of its liability to impart an undesirable flavor to milk and butter. This ques tion is dealt with by a writer in r recent issue of "Hoard's Dairyman." After observing that the only objec tion to feeding cabbage to milch cows is the flavor imparted to the milk, he proceeds to point out that, when fed under certain conditions, this objectionable feature can be avoided. One of the first precautions to observe is to keep the cabbagr away from the shed at milking time. Milk absorbs odors very quickly indeed, and if the cabbage odors are near the milk it will be tainted. An other precaution to observe is not to feed the cows just before milking: any high-flavored feed, in fact—tur nips for ...
MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 April 1914
MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. Tho experience already gained in places where associations have been organised shows that with the weed ing out of the unprofitable cow* comes an interest in better cows and in the greater care ot the cows. There is a tendency to make greater discrimination in price between good and poor animals. The introduction of better cows per medium oE the testing proceri. creates a desire for more ot them. Thus a larger number of cows \> itli high yielding capacity rednct'3 Ihe cost of collecting milk and cie.im m a given territory. Tho increased interest in Jairyiag stimulates an interest in pure-bred stock.
