CHANGE OF FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
CHANGE OF FOOD. When the chickens have got nicely feathered-say, about five or six weeks old-they will need to be put upon a different food regime, accord. ing to the breed. Those that are short of leg and very feathery will need lplenty of rice, which,, although it does not produce bone,. does influ. ence feathero considerably, not alto. gethe'r becatise of its own nutritive quallies, so much as it does by its ac. tion in keeping the blood cool, and thus allowing the other foods given to be assimilated with ease and com fort without the skin become dry and Irritated, and thus acting as a deter. rent upon feather growth, If stlmu. lative and nourishing foods are given, the blood becuomes over-heated, and the lskin is apt to become dry and harth, and when this is the case the feathers do not break nicely.
LOCALISMS [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
LOCALISMS Owing to pressure of space we are compelled to hold over several news items, etc., till next issue, also B. E, Johnson's business notice. We have received a letter from the Pender's Grove Settlers' Association, coonveying the opinion of that body (as already reported) adverse to the expen diture of ratepayers' money on city proclamation celebrations. Ten applications'for what is known as the " baby bonus," were received at the Northcote office on Thursday. This is at the rate of £50 per day, but is higher than the usual average, which is between £25 and £830. In connection with Northcote, city celebrations arrangements are in pro gress to give the district children a special day's sport and entertainment on June 8. Now that Preston has the electric light the next step will be the t'reston telephone exchange. The civic fathers have moved, and are going to urge the powers that be, in order to bring the districtup-to-date. " Progressive Pres ton " has a very pleasant sound. A...
THE POULTRY YARD. FOOD FOR LAYING HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
THE POULTRY YARD. FOOD FOI LAYING HENS, A laying hen requires daily about three to four ounces of food, accord ing to size. A bird In a wild state feeds on all kinds of fbod, many var ieties often In a meal, and seldom two meals alike. Hence we seldom see a sickly wild bird. Poultry, If fed long on one kind of food, will soon contract some disease or other, either directly from organs -being thrown out of working or from an enfeebled constitution, whereby they catch any. thing that may ue going. Rations for laying hens should be made from bran, pollard, pea-meal, maize-meal, crushed oats, chopped cabbage, chaff ed lucerne, boiled potatoes, and other vegetables, fresh-cut green hone, lean meant, cut green grass, etc, Any four of these may be combined to gether for a meal, providing bran be in all, and one other meal with one of vegetable and one meat. About twelve ounces per weight in the morning for ten laying fowls with about one pound to fifteen ounces of grain In the even ing,' o...

WITH DEADLY EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
WITH DEADLY EFFECT. A malign passion may be the effect' of a disease; it not, it will tend dil rectly to produce that disease (says a physician). Avalfice, long Indulged, destroys the normal balance of the brain, and at length shrivels it up by concentrating nourislhment on the part which is concerned with getting and holding. Outbursts of anger strike at the heart. Many a man has dropped dead In 'the heat of rage. Moroseness is very effectual in pro. dueing disease. It acts specially up. on the liver and the digestive organs, The seat of the affections is In the orain. This suffers first; afterwards, in course of time, the organs which It controls. To the 'rain man one can only ex. tend pity or contempt. Writing of vain-glory, Bacon said: "Glorious (i.e,, boastful) men are the scorn of wise Imen, the abomination of fools, the idol of parasites, and the slaves of their own vaunts." BUt laecon did not col.. fuse nint.glory with pride in its bst sense, Mongy oa?'t buy thIu loyalty of ...

SCOTTISH SOCIETY CONCERT. I The concert and dance, under the tuspices of the Northcote and Preston S Scottish Society, on Wednesday evening '1T it the town hall, was, as usual, a de- ti ided success. The large building was v crowded with an appreciative audience, o the items being applauded to such effect s5 that the programme was doubled in V length, each performer being honoured S with insistent recalls. The entry of the Chief (Bro, John Angus) to the accom- v paniment of the society's pipers, gave C the requisite '"patriotic flavor" to the gathering, and the charming old Scotch I songs compelled attention and admira- a tion throughout the evening.

TO THE MAN WITH "INTENTIONS." [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
TO THE MAN WITH "INTENTIONS." The following appeared In an Amerl. can journal, presumably from the pen of an experienced writer: Select the girl. Agree with the girl's father In politics, and with her mother In religion, If you have a rival, keep your eye on him. If he is a widower, keep two eyes on him, Do not assure the girl that yon have no bad habits. It will be enough for you to say you never heard yostrse'f snore In your loeep, 4 Go home at a reasonable Ihoem In the evening, Do not wait till the girl has to throw her whole soul into a yawn that she cannot cover with both hands. A little thing like that may cause a coolness at the very beglin ning of the game.

WOODSTOCK NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
WOODSTOCK NEWS. Under very adverse weather con ditions the coursing club's second meet was commenced at I)onnybrook last Tuesday. There was a large crowd present and a warm interest was taken in the proceedings. Four late entries were received for this meeting, but un fortunately coull not be accepted. Hares were scarce and only 11 trials were idis posed of. When the meeting was re sumed on the following morning the con ditions were most ideal. The "furry denizens". were numerous, and the meeting terminated before lunch, when IIanuske and Smith, of Epping, the re spective owners of Eastern Fairy and I)rifting Cloud, agreed to a division. Ioth dogs ran consistently throughout, and more should be heard of the pair be fore the season terminates. The stake was 21 pups at 80s. Winner £16, runner up £8, third (log £.1.

MECHANICAL MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
MECHANICAL MANAGEMENT. So much has 'been said of late about scientifle management in manufactur ing establishments that it may be de sirable to look ahead a little and en deavor to see just what departments of productive activity are really in line to be managed according to the methods thus advocated. In general, It seems as if the lines of work capa ble of such organisation and conduct are those from which, in the course of a comparatively short time, the ,killed mechanic may be almost aholly eliminated. Repetitive processes, operations which may be described in instructuon cards or planned out wholly in ad vance by some one other than the in. dividual by whom they are to be exe cuted, are the very ones from which the element of individual judgment may be almost entirely removed, and therefore are next in line to be turned over to an inanimate and almost en tirely automatic machine. The things which the machine cannot do to ad vantage are those which are not per formed twice alike...
FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
FOOTBALL. Northcote played a much-improved game in their match against Essendon on Saturday last. In the first quarter the home team made a pretty fair fight of it with 2 goals 1 behind, as against Essendpn's 4 goals 2 behinds. The shooting on both sides was fairly good. At half time Essendon had scored 8 goals 4 behinds to Northcote's 4 goals 5 behinds. The Northcote men kept up the battle ably, but all through it was a case of fighting against superior odds, but they only allowed Essendon to in crease their lead by 4 points, and at three-quarter time Essendon had 10 goals 10 behinds to their credit to their opponents' 6 goals 7 behinds, while the final was-Essendon, 14,13; Northcote, 7:9. Amongst the Northcote forwards Billett was the most successful, 3 goals falling to his share. Their best players were Smith, Bassett, ICole, Chalmers, H. Thomas, Hall and E. Thomas. Northcote play Brighton at Brighton to-day. The committee of the N.F.C. unani mously decided to instruct their dele...

LEILA AND HER LOVER fly MAX PEMBERTON. "itblished by Arrangement with Ward, ck and Co. Ltd., Leond, and Melb. All Rights Reserved, .CHAPTER XVII. The Trance Passee, I. Father Dominic, the priest, came to dine at the little hotel and brought the Captain of the garrison with him. There had been no change in Heres ford's condition, he said, and the doce tor did not give them any hope of better tidings. No man could say when the sleeper would awake- there would hardly be a warning, and life would return capriciously. as it had left him, This was all that could be said, and the three men heard it with much real grief-while to Hugh it was the most pathetic dis appointment he had known in all his life, Of course, the priest had not been informed of the nature of their mis sion, and he regarded them simply as the sick man's friends who had come across the seas to visit him, Suppos. ing an interest which would be natur al, he spoke of Mademoisello Adele as they had been calling her-and aston...

PRESTON ELECTRIC LIGHT EXTENSION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 23 May 1914
PRESTON ELECTRIC LIGHT EXTENSION, To the Editor. Sir,-I read with some interest the article in your issue of the 16th inst, dealing with the subject of Preston's Electric Light Extension, and agree with the writer that it is a matter of congratulation that the Preston council has now decided to go into the question of a comprehensive scheme of electric light extension. The article further states that the ratepayers should appre ciate the!stout-heartedness of the coun cillors in refusing to enter upon piece meal extensions, and goes on to com mend the council's display of "back bone" &c, In the first place, may I point out, that the councillors have already agreed to extensions of the lighting area in certain favoured localities outside the limits of the original scheme, on individual appli cations, and it was only when my appli cation for an extension came before the council that the decision against exten sions was given, I do not desire for a moment to receive special trea...
