...District News... MEREDITH. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 10 April 1914

...District News... MEREDITH. I The first eagle of its kind to bo captured in this district for mnny vears fell to tlio Run of Mr W. Campion at Moranghurk a few days ago. Engaged jrt ferroting rabbits, Mr Campion .bad: his at tention withdrawn from. his wor.lt 'by the whir of a bird's witags. He looked up, and saw just about to settle in the trees—or' on him—a largo eagle. Ho grabbed his gun and fired, with effective aim.' Tlio lingo bird dropped to tho eartb woundod in the wing. When the marksman attacked it with a stiok the eagle showed fight, and return ed the attack with feroaity. It was too hampered by its disabled wing, however, to make any swift movement, whilst there was just a little too muoh danger in trying to kill it with a mere stiok. So the sportsman concluded the pro 1 ceedings with a cartridge. Before I being'; killed the strange ravnger | gave evidence of a blood lust by 1 its harsh and fierce challenged, its agitated sweeping of wings, and tlia convulsive movements...

With the froak fash ions and the eccentric pleasures of a certain section of society Her Majes ty lias no sympathy. On more than one occasion, Indeed, the Queen haB expressed her strong disapproval of the extremes to which people carry their pleasures nowadays, and she lias set her face very strongly against tho periodical crazes in which the ellto, In search of new and novel pas times, indulge. It has ibeen known for some time that Iier Majesty considered that tho latest danceB, particularly the tango, are quite unsuitable for tho ballroom, and neither at Buckingham Palace nor at houses which Her Majesty visits will they figure on tho programmes. Not that the Queon objects to dan cing; indeed, she Is very fond of the waltz, scliottische, polka and other graceful dances.

"POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punishment Fit the Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 10 April 1914

"POETIC JU8TICE." Making the Punishment Fit the Crime, Some time ago a well-known writer severely criticised our present system for sending«people to prison for crimeB as different in character as thieving and uttering a criminal libel. He as serted that the punishment should be made more to fit the crime, and tome judges, especially in America, are be ginning to follow out his ideas. For instance, the other day a man-named Brant was charged in Ohio with steal ing eggs. The judge ordered him to go to prison for Ave days, and to be fed during the whole of that time on a diet of eggs only. At the expiration of Ills sentence Brant declared that he had become so tired of eggs that he would never eat another one again, so that the judge's novel sentence has effected a radical cure in this particu lar caBe. In California, if a man should fail to support his wife and family, he is sent to priBon, where he Is made to work hard and pay a daily sum to his "better-half" out of the money that h...

What a Wife! [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 10 April 1914

What a Wife! "Pooli!" said a man in au omnibus, as he and other business men were 011 their way to the City, "my wife is the most methodical, careful, neat ■wo man you ever saw. It is all non sense for a woman to let a house run into disorderly ways. You ought to see how my wife does things." "Well, of course, that is all very well in theory," responded another; "but the best housekeeper gets be hind." "My wife never does. She is always the same. She lieeps everything in first-class order." "She must be a remarkable person," said another man. "How long have you been married?" "Ten years. And she has never dis appointed me. Why, gentlemen, she always puts everything in the same place, and you know just where to find what you want. For instance, I went to my handkerchief drawer this morning before daylight, and took out a handkerchief and put it in my poc ket before starting out, and I know just as well as I know my own name that that handkerchief is just such a size, and has my initi...

HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 10 April 1914

HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. The guiding principle in the aiipli nation of manures is to use them as supplementary to the natural soil re sources, and not as a main source of fertility. Most good agricultural soils contain vast stores of dormant plant food, and the aim should be to develop as much as possible of this plant food latent in the soil by thorough cultiva tion, supplementing any deficiencies with fertilisers; What those deflcisu cies are can best- be found out by nc* tual experiment, and, having deter mined them, the problem for e?.ch farmer and orchardist is to ascertain the most profitable', and economic way of supplying the soil's needs. In all districts, with a light rainfall, super phosphate is likely 'to continue the most profitable of ail phosphatlc man urea. In the wetter areas, however, especially on soils deficient in limo, basic slag, or Thomas' phospfiate is i valuable adjunct to the production of good- crops. "When a man and a girl whisper to gether they are almos...

PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 10 April 1914

PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. Manj' devices have come under no tice from time to time to cope with the mice pest in tho wheat or hay field. Building the stack upon a raised platform does not answer the purpose; the mice -will climb up the blocks up on which the platform is built, run along underneath the platform boards, and so enter the s.tack. Enclosing the stack, as some farmers do, with flue wire netting, will also 'be found un suitable, as the mice will climb up the wire netting. The only successful method to keep them out. is to enclose the stack with a fence of galvanised iron, either plain or corrugated, about two feet high. Let the iron into the ground to a depth of ofur inches, and place it in a slant ing position, pointing outwards, from the stack, all around it* taking care to leave no open space at the cor ners; it will 'be found impossible for mice to enter a stack thus protected.

FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 10 April 1914

FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. A matter which is very often tic ments. They are so often allowed to glected on farms is the care of imple lie a'bout the place In all weathers that their periods of usefulness are seriously curtailed. After an imple ment has done its first season's wori: the owner should, when stowing :t in its proper place, see that it is «n or der, and if there are any defects he should make a note of them, or, if convenient, it is better to have such defects repaired at once. Then he knows that his machine is ready for the next season's work. With suco implements as the stripper or har vester, where belts are used, the belts should be removed and have a little oil rubbed *on them, and he put away in a cool place. The seed• drill is an implement that requires a lot of care. A little extra attention will often save two or three days' delay. Suco im plements as ploughs, harrows, culti vators, etc., which are of iron, do not require a shed so much, but a...

MAKING FARMING PAY. Wo are all trying to make things pay* but we refuse to invest enough brains in the study of things so that we can make them pay. Farming everywhere, and in everything, is a deep question, one o fthe profound est. It requires a lot of thought, study and' good judgment to make it pay. Some must have an Immediate profit, and so they skin the land. Oth ers try to save expense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save ex pense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save expense in secur ing good breeding stock, and so pro duc cows theat do not giv the most profitable result. Others refuse to feed a good cow sufficiently to enable her to produce to her fullest capacity. All about us is this ever-present ques tion of making things pay, and saving useless, not useful, expense. Surely there is neded a lot of wit and wisdom on the farm.
