NOTES ON THENAR. All the efforts exerted to avert a conflagration iu Uuropej involving the great powers, have failed suddenly and conclusively. At 7.30 p.m on Saturday the Ger man ambassador in St. Petersburg (Count de Pourtales) handed the For eign Minister a declaration of war. The German Embassy and staff left St. Petersburg for Berlin the same night, and the mobilisation of the whole Ger man, forces was ordered. - The fir|t shota between the >two nat ions mentioned "were fired t>y a Russian frontier patrol on a German patrol at Prostken, the Germans retaliating.

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 8 August 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. (By "Ambrosiue.") The reasons wo do not walk well are i.u.Dy. Hero are a few. AVe, those 'A us who live in towns, spend a far greater part of our days in trains jand trams than ou our own two legs. We do nof know how to sit or stand. We seldom realise wo cannot walk bccau.e nr>s of the people round us can . walk either. Most of our men folk seem to imagine it is our clothes that are wrong, not ourselves-, and we are quite ntdy to fail in with this belinj and go to all sorts of trouble to e form our clothes rather than ourselves Wo think walking* is so simple, we tier J noi take any, trouble with it. A doctor once said to me, " There are only three medicines in the world; air, water and exercisu." Funnily enough, most of us would rather spend much money ou patent medicines and' beauty doctors than,use the medicines we -ean get for nothing. Of course, air and cxorciso are first cousins and water is fast becoming known as their best accompaniment. To tralk well, y...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 8 August 1914

OF RURAL' INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") At present, when their position is aboutu aus acute'and distressing as it possibly can be, comments and advice on the growing of fodder for dairy rows is not likely to appeal- to the owners of stock in the- dry, northern areas.' No matter how'els vei- and resourceful they may be, they cannot produce with out the necessary moisture. That fact -is obvious to everybody. There are, many parts, of, tlio^^Statc^' however, where an* assured rainlan-"fs '"expefi'-' ence'd,'arid there dairymen should cer tainly make adequate provision each year for the maintenance of their-ani mals in the most eii'ective condition. Those who hitherto have not done all that they might and ought to have ac complished in that respect' should, with advautage, study and digest the ob servations recently made by Mr. A. P. Furniss at a meeting of the Longwood branch of the S.A. Agricultural Bureau. Speaking with reference, of course, particularly to the hills districts, he said f...

' THE pensfyutst 5vee press. Published Every Saturday Morning Saturday, August 8th, 1914. Records of the Pig Industry. WHY CO-OPERATIVE FACTOR IES ARE IMPERATIVE. Mr Bourbe, Chairman, Western and Murray Bacon Coy., has handed us the following article, from which he quoted at last week's local meeting :— Last week a sow and litter sold at Warrnambool for £10; Less than three years ago (writes the " Leader ") a sow and litter realised at the same market only one shilling. The owner rejoiced to have them taken away. It was in the midst of bad times for pig breeders. Their animals sold for nom inal figures. The loss involved in fattening them for market was consid erable. Good pigs were practically given away. In order to get rid of their stoek pig breeders adopted des perate measures. Some are reported' to have shot their sows ; in other cases they are said toliaxe turned them on to the fields that had been poisoned for rabbits, while it is known that 'owners returning from sales where...

THE GRADE COW. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 15 August 1914

1HL UhMUt COW. Some of the breeders of purebred dairy cuttle have strange notions about acknowledging the existence of thd grade cow. They seem to be afraid of something that will risj up to p.'agiu ihe purebred. This notion, in tha pinion of "Hoiird's Dairyman" lias n*. I*al foundation. On tho c ntraiy, tbe American authority just qiuttd uvurfj like to see every encourng'm nt giveu to tho production of first cmsi. grada cows ip-all the d"»iry. br.eeds. To piiK duce such cows the farmer must hftY® a purebred sire. Ho must have, alio, a right idea of the great important of securing a bull of the strongest aud best blood lines. AVe have only-to" r'fleet a moment -to see- that it really needs a more pre* potent bull in the production of grade ■4; as than in a purebred herd.

QUARRELS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 15 August 1914

QUARRELS. We can forgfre a man who hates » quarrel if lie- quarrels hardly or even unfairly; lie is so unused'to'the gam# that he cannot be expected to play it kindly when it is forced upon him; b® is embittered by his natural anger that ho should be forced to quarrel at all. But the quarrelsome man who quarrels with a purpose is as base as the oardsharper. He profits by the weaknesses 'of others on a pretence of sharing them. In fact, he is a ma ft that even the most quarrelsome would never quarrel with twice, any more than a gambler will knowingly play twice with a jrwrdshnrper; for in uarrellins, as m gambling, there M one law that should never be broken - just because both are rather lawless pursuits, and that is the law of fair play.—"The Tin**." .

Fortunately, the bones :ejo:n with equal tase, and p fracture of them rarely causes any permanent inconveni oner.. The. injury is first discovered . after a fall by a swelling above the bone which is broken, and if the swel ling is pressed pain is felt, and a ligiit grating noise may be heard, caused by the rubbing together of the ends of the broken bone.
