EVOLUTION OF POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 11 May 1914
EVOLUTION OF POLITICS. AMossST all the changes that have taken place in human affaire dur ing modern times there are few more marked than that associated with what is called " the science of government." It ie buta truism to say that change and progress aro identical; there can be change without progress, but not progress without change. The science of government, theref6re, must of necessity make new departures if it is to keep pace with the other sciences; and as the end is not yet, it is diflicult to forecast how this country or any country will be governed in the next century, or even in the next generation. One thing, however, stands out: the public mind has many things to engage its attention, and their num ber and variety are constantly on the increase. Meanwhile politics contirine to make larger and larger eLemanUs npon ir, wuite trio rime available for them grows lees. We had not so very long since gone through a strenuously.contested Federal election, and now, before the d...

FIV.E WEIGHBRIDGES. ---- - ,TUNGAMAH SHIRE COUNCIL'S INTERESTING DEBATE REFERENCES TO SHEPPARTON. LOAN OF £1500 AGREED TO, At the meting of the Tungamah Shire Couecil, Or W H Ford, pursuant to notice, moved : ' That the resolution on the books probibitiog the borrowing of money for the erection of weigh bridges be rescinded." In doing so, Cc Ford said the finances in his Riding were very limited, and it would not be at all convenient to erect woighbridges out of revenue. He was therefore of opinion that money should be borrowed for the purpose, especially as ratepayers were asking for them. It was generally agrocd that weighlbridges would prove a more canvenient and correct sys:em of weighing grain and 'obther produce. Cr Cummins, in seconding the motion, said that when the question wae dis cussed by thel Council on a previous occasion, it was decided that if bridges were erected it would have to be done out of revenue. This was hardly fair to the Pouth-West Riding, which was at pre...

DOG AND BIRD CIRCUS. QUITE A NOVELTY ENTER. TAINMENT. On Friday, Saturday afternoon and evening the company essociated with Abdy's Dog and Bird Circus delighted audiences with its versatili'y at the Star Theatre. There was a lot of novelty in the enteortainments; much to admire and applaud; and there was no mistaking that rhe company is deserving of good patronago wherever it goes. It combines vaudeville with performing birds and animals possessed of an astonishing quantity of intelligence; and demonstrates to what remarkable extent the lower creation can be sub ordinated to the will and trainiog of man. if only thle eccentric vocalist of elongated yet attenua'ed corporeal proportions-in which he seemed to rejoiceo-will refrain in future from indelicate allusions in his songs and patter, the performances of the com pany would be beyond reproach. And he must bear in mind that his audiences are a mix d one, with people ranging from the tender juvenile in point of age. The rvtwentyfive...

Mrs Nseb, wife of Mr W C Nash, formerly licensee of the Victoria Hotel, Byrneside, died at her residence, St. Kilda, last week.

Miss G L Burns has been appointed to fill the vacancy.

Courage. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 14 May 1914
Courage. Admiral Lord Howe, when Captain, was hastily awakened in the, middle. of the night by the lieutenant of the watch, who informed him with great agitation that the ship was on fire near the magazine. "If that be the case," said he, rising leisurely to put on his clothes, "we shall soon know it." The lieutenant flew back to the scene of danger, and, almost instantly returning, exclaimed, "You need not, sir, be afraid, the fire is extinguish ed." "Afraid!" exclaimed Howe. "What do you mean by that, sir? I never was afraid in my life." Then, he adde 1, looking the lieutenant full in the face, "Pray, how does a man feel when he is afraid? I need not ask how soe looks." People who live double lives are apt to discover in the end that neither'of them was profitable. When a man has failed at every thing else he can still become a critic. Many a man gets a reputation for wisdom by leaving things unsaid.

"At first we were; but a new broom sweeps clean, you know, and we found that William got lazy. He was fine at washing the windows, doing the garden, mowing the lawn, tending the fires, running errands, pressing clothes, sweeping the walks, polish ing the floors, oiling the furniture, preparing the vegetables, waiting at table, and washing the dishes. But he was lazy. He used to go to sleep at midnight regularly, no matter where he was. Many a time Mr.-De Payste has left the club for home at two o'clock in the morning and found William-snoring in the car outside.

SILO FILLING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 14 May 1914
SILO FILLING. Too rapid filling of the silo is a mistake, as the fermentation or curing of the lower layers is apt to be checked. The first day the silo should not be more than one third iiilled. It should then be allowed to settle for 36 to 48 hours, and another layer added. For a fair-sized silo about four fillings are required. In a lofty overground silo very little if any weighting is necessary, especially if the material has been well tramped down, but a covering of wet chaff or similar material is advisable. With stack ensilage, covering with some material and weighting to exclude the air is necessary. While the overgronnd silo is very much more satisfactory than the stack system, still good ensilage can be made in the stack. There is more waste with the stack, and great care is necessary to build each layer up evenly and to firm it well. When the stack is finished it requires to be roofed well to throw off the rain, Except where there is a good deal of natural herbage that ca...

The Great Tragedy. "And 'this." paid the alleged old sol dier, pestering a long-suffering editor :who was all old soldier, "is where ths Arabs were massed in front of us. Here"-pointing to another place on a dirty pocket map-"is where 'ur di vision was drawn up in zareba. We deployed in this direction, and our left wing was attacked by the enemy on this knoll. Just at ths pcint I was wounded on the left_ shouldr, and a hundred yards farther on I got my right arm shattered by a pie a of one of our own shells, and- " "But," interrupted the bored edi:o.', "where did you get your brains blown, out?"

WHEAT STORAGE. NEW SCHEME PROPOSED. HEAVY CHARGES PAID BY FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 14 May 1914
WHEAT STORAGE. NEW SCHEME PROPOSED. HEAVY OHARGES PAID BY FARMERS. The N.S.W. Minister of Rail ways ('Mr Hoyle) has mapped out an extensive country tour, on which he hopes to be able to start at once. Mr Hoyle will consult primary producers on the question of the supply of trucks for live stock and produce, and the-storage of wheat at railway station yards. He proposes to send an invitation on ahead to each district in his itinerary, asking the farmers and graziers to confer with him. Civic and other town authorities will not be ignored, says the Minister, but a special effort is to be made to get the grievances and views of the produces, whose interests are so seriously menaced whereever there is a lack of trucks. With regard to wheat storage, Mr Hoyle has an idea for a scheme which he admits will cost a lot of money; but, he argues, the pro ducer will be quite willing to re coup the Government for whatever outlay it will be committed to in the event of his scheme being car. ried o...

A GOOD WHEAT FOR HAY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 14 May 1914
A GOOD WHEAT FOR HAY. As one of the main standards in dairy cattle feeding is good hay, and as dairying in the warmer districts of the north necessitates a hay variety capable of producing a fair yield under such climatic conditions, attention may be pro fitably directed to the results obtained from the variety called La Huguenot, which is reported from South Australia as giving excellent returns, not only from the district called " The Hills," near Adelaide, and along the west coast and the Murray respectively, but also throughout the lower and upper north. Daring the past hay season in South Australia there have been reports of numerous crops from 5} feet to 7 feet high, averaging from 3 to 4 tons to the acre. In the Mount Barker district, sown and manured with 1 cwt of bone super to the acre, this wheat is described as having returned 3 tons 70 lbs of hay to the acre. The credit of originating L9 Huguenot belongs to Mr J Currell, formerly of South Australia, but now on Arthur Riv...

The candidate calmly retorted: "Is they servant a dog that thou shouldst do tills thing?" And nothing more was heard of the butcher. :·. .
