[?] Clever ChequeForgers Work. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914
s'lOvv oiever Forgers Work. BY A LONDON BANK CASHIEH. Although an elaborate system ol checking' and counter-checking und the alertness of the modern cashier make T cheque-forging more diHicult and less profitable every day, there are si ill some ingenious rogues about capable of circumventing all safeguards. Indeed, the latest method of the expert forger . reveals a re markable degree of skill and clever ness. The most common form of fraud is for a stranger to get -hold of o cheque, forge . the customer's signa ture, and present .the cheque at th&lt; counter for payment in cash. Ther&lt; are obvious risks and uncertainties in this method. A cheque, for in stance, might, be drawn for mort than a customer's balance, and sus picions would thus be aroused ; 01 a cashier, might detect the forgery. If neither event occurs, or coursf the cheque is paid, the forgei pockets the money, and retires quick ly from ' the sceno of his exploit Against such forgery there is prac tica...

GIVE AND TAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914
GIVE AND TAKE. 4 An amusing story 5s related by a • Paris correspondent. When the Sultan of Turkey gave orders for the mobilization of his troops lie sent to the King of Bul garia a sack of millet, with the fol lowing letter:— . "Ferdinand Effendi, mobilize ii you like, but be assured that there \ . nro as many soldiers in- Turkey its V. -• ..there are grains of millet in this sack. Now, if you wish, declare war." The King of Bulgaria's reply was In kind. He sent a v cry ,'mu'ch ' • smaller sack, filled with the tiny grains' of a most virulent red pep per of the country. "Ischousvi" it is called, and it does not belie its name, for its effect • is that of a very vigorous snuff. With it went Ihe following dedication :— "Dear Mister Sultan,—The Bulgar ians are not numerous, it is true ; but be assured that to stick yom nose into their affairs is like stick ing it into our national condiment Try it and see. They'll sting you so sharply that the whole of Asia will not be able to save yo...

Weir, neighboring farmers, who, at her request, drove Mr. Disher back to Rainbow for medical examination.

Longerenong Agricultural College REPORT FOR MARCH, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914
Longereiiong Agricultural College « RKPbRT FOR MARCH, 1914. No rain of importance has been registered during the month, and dry conditions prevail. The pas tures are rather short, but with th« good supply of old hay and oaten straw there is no need for anxiety for the stock. The dams | are now being replenished from the channels, and at the end of the week will all be filled. The seed wheat is practically all sold and delivered. A large num ber" of orders could not be supplied, and in many cases cheques were returned. The chief demand was for Federation, Yandilla King, Warden and College Eclipse. The last variety gave highly satisfactory results in the test plots last season, but there is only enough seed for our own supply. A fair quantity of seed oats has been disposed of. It is intended to largely increase the area under wheat this season, and to pay special ' attention to the larger supplies of seed of popular .varieties for the fanners. The wheat will include Federation 196 acr...

The Senate Elections LIBERAL NOMINATIONS. MR. MAUGER RETIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914
The Senate Elections LIBERAL NOMINATIONS. MR. MAUGER RETIRES. Some dissatisfaction has arisen in connection with the conduct of the ballot of members of Liberal Leagues for' the selection of six Liberal candidates for the repre sentation of Victoria in the Senate, in the event of a double dissolu tion. On Saturday a crisis oc curred, when' Mr-. 8. Mauger an nounced his retirement from the ballot on grounds which must cause a good deal, of controversy. It is said that other retirements are probable. Mr. Mauger has been asked to reconsider his de cision, but it seems unlikely tbat he will do so. He says that he found that be waq sot being ac corded fair play by forces that : were set in opposition to him at the last election. In retiring he reserves to himeelf the right to offer hie services tt> the public in whatever position he pan beet serve . them. . '
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. I No branch of dairy farming is more important than the feeding and treat ment of cows; yet none is more gen erally neglected, The direct influence of what the cow eats and drinks upon the milk she produces cannot be too strongly impressed upon the attention of the farmer. 01' equal importance are the conditions under which food and drink are taken. If cows are chased by dogs or over-driven, or wor ried by boys on their way to pasture, their milk will surely show the effects in a deterioration of quality: If their shelter in winter or shade in summer is insufficient, or the food is not suf ficiently nutritive, the penalty will in variably be paid in a smaller milk yield. These restrictions are inevi table. One of the greatest mistakes far mers make is in supposing that they may with impunity keep their cows on "short commons" during the win ter and that they will fatten up in the spring, and milk as well as ever. A cow reduced to meagreness by semi starvati...

SCOURING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914
SCOURING CALVES. From experiments carried out in Germany it is claimed to have been discovered that sour milk given to calves from the first to the tifth day of their lives, forms an excellent pre ventive of scour. The constant losses —sometimes of valuable pedigree calves—are well known in most herds, and are attributed to the curdling of the milk in the stomach. The bacteria in sour milk are supposed to act bene ficially. In Germany it is called yog hurt, produced by adding Bacillus bul garicus to milk. This generates lac tic acid in the stomach of the calves, which acts as a disinfectant, and pre vents the development of the hurt ful bacteria, and at the same time sti mulates the activity of the intestine, probably by producing a ferment that destroys the bacilli which give rise to scour.

MINISTRY AKD ULSTER. .. -♦ . ■ FRIDAY'S "GRAVE OUTRAGE" London, April 28.

Dublin advices are that the 2nd Yorkshire and the 1st Royal West Kent regiments, which are stationed in that city, have been ordered to be in readiness to proceed to Ulster. It is denied that three regiments from Curragh camp in Kildare have been ordered to Ulster. At the same time there is much ac tivity at The Curragh. Five warshipB are manoeuvirng off Larne, Donaghadee, and Ban gor, where the guns from the Fanny were landed on Friday night, and are using searchlights.

AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. Within the past ton years the dairy cows of Australia have increased from one million to above two millions. The butter produced in a single year reach ed about 200,000,000 lbs. The annual export is valued at between £3,000,000 and £4,000,000. No rural industry in Australia is move progressive and none pays larger returns to the farmers. The mainstay of dairying is the e.cport market, and easily the largest con sumers of Australian butter abroad are the people of the United Kingdom. It might be thought that the expense of carrying butter from Australia to London would be a serious handicap upon butter-making in the Common wealth. As a matter of fact, however, the Australian dairy farmer, in point of cost, is as close to London as the dairy farmers of Ireland or Scotland. The actual contract price of shipping butter from either Melbourne or Syd ney to London is y2d. per lb.

DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914
DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. | An English dairying authority says: i The elimination of the worthless ani mals should be one of the chief ob jects of the cow keeper. Milk records kept carefully and sys tematically furnish reliable informa tion which enables a cow keeper to de tect these worthless animals; and it pays him to dispose of them at once. There .are some farmers, of course, who may be tempted to rely wholly on their own judgment as far as the milking capacities of any cow is con cerned; but guess-work of this kind j can teach nothing what it costs to feed cows, nor whether such food is being economically fed in relation to the average quantity of milk produced. Milk, producers need to study this question of cost of food in relation to milk yield very carefully indeed. The fact is clear that a cow giving, say, SOO gallons per annum costs practic ally no more to feed than one which only gives 600 gallons; yet, compara tively speaking, there is a loss of £6 on the latter,...

Not Her Sort. After he had fallen upon his knees and kissed her hand she said: j "Before I answer 'Yes* or *No,' there are some things I would like to ask: you. Do you ever-drink or gamble?" "No," he eagerly replied. "I do not know what the taste of liquor is; I have never defiled my lips with to bacco. I have never uttered a profane word in my life. I have never even played bridge where a prize was at stake." She looked at him thoughtfully for a moment, drew a long sigh, and then asked: "Have you ever broken a woman's heart?" "■ "Ah, how can you ask me that?" he almost reproachfully answered. "If I had ever spoken words of love to another I would not deem myself worthy to touch the hem of your gar ment. I have never cared for anyone but you. I have never kissed any wo man except my motliei\ I have never given any girl cause to utter one sor rowful sigh.

WINTER CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914
WINTER CARE. The season is at hand that is the hardest on our ever faithful friend the horse. The raw, damp, windy or extreme cold weather, together with a little neglect, may cause the loss of a valu able horse. When a horse comes in wet from work or drive, rub him well and cover with a warm woollen blanket. Always change to a dry blanket when the horse has cooled. Rub the legs' well with a wisp of straw or a towel. Every horse is more or less warm when he comes in from a drive. Never strip off the haraess or saddle and let the horse rush into a feed of oats or a trough of water. Never give water or oats to a horse until he has been in the stable some time, and has had some hay. This is a sane and safe practice and much loss can be avoided by en forcing it. Change the bit of the horse with the sensitive mouth. Take off the check, or let it out. Try a large rub ber-covered bit. If the liorse "drives on one line," look to his teeth at once; a sharp tooth is usually the cause.
