THE THORPDALE DISTRICT [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914
THE THORPDALE DISTRICT In the last ten years some of the more pro gressive settlers near Thorpdale have realised the necessity of cultivating their areas and of preparing them for that work. Where such a policy has been faithfully carried out the re sults have been very encouraging. It has been discovered, for instance, that excellent crops of high-class potatoes can be grown— this year there are 1000 acres devoted to the crop—and that a periodic laying of cultivated ground down in pasture produces a 'vigorous and well sustained growth of valuable rye grass and clover. Algerian oats also yield well, and are especially valued, since if sown in March the green stuff can bo fed down till September. In this manner practically two crops are obtained from the one seeding. As a preliminary to cropping it'is essential that the land should be freed from the mass of standing dead trees, logs, ferns and impedi menta m which it is usually covered. As each ten acres or thereabouts is reclaimed, ...

Hill End. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914
Hill Khd. (From Our Correspondent). ' At a meeting of residents held here re cently, to consider the ma.iu roads question as it affects this, district, it was decided to Appoint Messrs'-Lamont, Geo.

It is believed that the Sandy "VCreek route is the very best obtainable, and will shorten the distance by not less than two m iles. A concert held here on Friday last, in aid •of the Sale Hospital, resulted in about £7 being collected.

SCALY LEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914
SCALY LEGS. Scaly legs are contagious (as are most diseases of poultry), and can be 1 cured by washing with carbolic soap and hot water, painting legs with kerosene or wood preserving oil oc casionally. This unsightly enlarge ment of the leg is caused by a para site (sarcoptes mutans), and is close ly associated with uncleanliness and over-crowded runs. Each high achievement is a sign and token of the whole nature's pos sibility. What a piece of the man was for that shining moment it is the duty of the whole man to foe always. A boy wouldn't be happy in heaven unless he could run the risk of break ing his neck.

Anonymous. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914
Anonymous. A well-known author, on leaving his house one morning, forgot a let ter that he had intended to post. Dur ing the afternoon something recalled it to his nsind, and as it was of con siderable importance he immediately huiTied home. The letter was no where to be found, and he summoned the maid.

"I know there wasn't, sir: but I tnought it must ue in answer to one of them anonymous letters you've been getting lately!"
IRON FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914
IRON FOR FOWLS. Iron is present in the fowl's body; part of this iron is invan organised form in the red corpuscles of the blood. The total amount of iron is small, but nevertheless, it is of great importance, and a deficiency re sults in anaemia. One frequently finds that eggs laid by insufficiently fed fowls have pale yolks. The coloring of the yolk is due to pigments, and, possibly, to the phospholipine termed lecithin. Iron, in an organised form, is found in the ash of the egg. Vegetable foods, es pecially clover and lucerne, are rich in minerals, and their use results in richly-colored yolks. Anaemic fowls may be easily treated by administer ing to each five drops of perchloride of iron in a teaspoon of well-sweeten ed milk. This is a very cheap tonic, and is better in many ways than the ordinary sulphate of iron (copperas).
The Only Sort. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 February 1914
The Only Sort. Bachelor: Don't you think :i talka tive woman is more popular with men than any other kind? Benedict: What other kind is there? A tourist travelling in the western part of Ireland was trying to have some fun at the expense of a native of the country. "You have a very fine view from here, my friend,' said the tourist. "Ay," replied the native, 'we can oometimes see a long way." "Ah, I suppose you can see Ameri ca v-'ben it's clear?" "Further than that," said the Irishman, without a smile. "What?" "Yes; if you will just wait a while you'll see the moon!" The teacher was addressing his pu pils on the subjects of laziness and idleness. He drew a terrible picture of the habitual loafer—the man who dis likes work and who begs for all he gets. "Now, John," said the teacher to a little boy who had been --ery inatten tive during the lesson. John was in stantly alert. "Tell me," continued the teacher, "who is the miserable in dividual who gets clothes, food and lodging, and yet...
A Tangled Tongue. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914
A Tangled Tongue. A man who was charged with cruelly neglecting his four children appeared before the bench in an unnaturally ex alted state of mind. "Two of 'em's orl n"' he said. "Which two?" asked the clerk. "Steak and Kidney," replied the de fendant. •'What!" exclaimed the astonished magistrate. At this point the defendant's wife provided the explanation that her hus band had been trying t.o say "Kate and Sidney"! '•Writing to Charlie?" "Yes." "I thought he was engaged?" "He writes me that his girl has thrown him overboard, so I'm dropping him a line." "Most people," remarked a thought ful man, "take life seriously." "Well, there's no reason why they should not," rejoined a matter-of-fact friend. "Taking life is a serious mat* tor!" "'What Is the difference between yalorand discretion?" "Well to en to a restaurant1 without tipping -tfould be valor." "I. see.' "And to go to a different one next day would be discretion." "I say, old man, what's good for my complaint?" asked a suff...
The Ignorant Man. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914
The Ignorant Man. A reporter ventured, on John I>. Rockefeller's seventieth birthday, to question him about a subject at that time of great importance. Mr. Rockefeller, however, "would not discuss the question. He shook his head, laughed, and said: "Young man, I am ignorant about this matter. I am as ignorant as the man in the fable. "There is a fable, you know, about a man in an Eastern city who followed a lady about the bazaars and shops a long time. Finally she turned to hint and said: " 'Why do you follow me?' " 'Because,' he answered, 'you ara very beautiful, and my soul goes out to you in love.' "The lady smiled, and said: "'But I am not half so beautiful a» my sister there.' She pointed to th® fountain in the square. 'Look at her, filling her water jar. She is a vision of loveliness. Go. then, and make love to her.' "The man took the lady at her word. He hastened to the fountain. But the maiden filling her jar there was very, very ugly, and he returned to the lady and said...
POROSITY AND WATER CAPACITY OF SOILS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914
POROSITY AND WATER CAPACITY OF SOILS. The amount of water necessary to saturate a soil depends on several factors, the most important of which is the "porosity" or amount of space between the soil particles. The por osity of the soil depends upon the size of the soil particles (or texture), and the way in which these particles are grouped together, and upon the space between the particles or groups of particles. If a soil he cemented together into a homogeneous mass, its porosity sinks to a minimum; if it he composed, howevar of numerous fine particles, e?.&lt;;t> preserving its own physical condition, the porosity of the soil will rise a maximum. The porosity of a soil may be judgeS 7ery closely by the percentage of fine particles it yields on mechanical analysis. A finelv-divided soil has r high capacity for absorbing moisture «nd holding it.
MISCELLANOUS ITEMS. THE ENVIOUS MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 February 1914
! MISCELLANOUS ITEMS. THE ENVIOUS MAN. "Do«s the race of mail love a lord?** This question—a very pertinent one at the present juncture in our politi cal affairs—is answered by Mark Twain in a forceful article which is less familiar than most of that bril liant humorist's writings. He con tends that the human race envies a lord's place because of its power and conspicuousness. When a man is conspicuous we always want to see him. Also if he pay us an attention we manage to remember it. Also, we mention it now and then, casually, sometimes friend, or if a friend is not handy, we report it to a stran ger. "Once," writes the inimitable Mark, "I was received in private audience by an Emperor. . . I was telling a jealous person about it, and I could see him wince under it, see it bite see him suffer. ... ' "He asked me what had impressed me most. I said: 'His Majesty's deli cacy. They told me to be sure and back out from his presence, and find the door-knob as best I could; it wa3 not all...
