Duty on Superphosate. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
Duty on Superphosate. The representatives of many agricultural societies throughout Victoria attended the inter State Commission on Thursday to hear and oppose an application for a 10s duty on the. importation of superphosphate manure. Wit nesses in support of the applica tion stated emphatically that large quantises of fertiliser were being dumped into Australia aud sold at less than manufacturing cost. The commission asked for facts and figures, aud the farmers present, anxious to find so cheap a market, leant forward in their seats and pricked their ears.' Witnesses stated frankly that they did not want to divulge their evidence in public. They considered that it would injure their trade to let farmers know where the cheapest superphos pliale could be bought. After a tnild protest from Mr I^ockyer the commission decided to respect the consideration, aud all ■ evi dence on dumping was heard in private. When the court was again opened to the public agri culturists ■ were conspicuou...

At ike Wy.una State farm on Saturday, night Mr M'Kenzie, M.L.A., ex-Minister of Lauds, ad dressed a-largely attended meeting of settlers on his attitude, in regard to clause 69 'of the Closer' Settle ment Act. The. address , was de livered at the request of the Wyuna Progress Association, and the pre president (Mr J. P. L,awler) oc cupied the chair. Mr M'Kenzie pointed out that piior to 1904 over 80,000 acres of land in Wyuna, Cornelia Creek and Restdown es tates was practically in the hands oi three owners, who worked the whole place with half a dozen meu," except at shearing times. Private buyers could not buy portion of the estates, as the owners would sell all or none at all. Once there was an aggregation of laud no small man could get it. It might be said that this could not occur again, as the value of laud was too high; there were water charges, and the one man one block clause put an eud to it. A man c...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
Two days after Barbara had been in London she obtained permission of her employer, the Countess Martinez, to spend the evening with the Glyns. The meeting was a little painful to Barbara at first. It almost brought the tears to her eyes to see Mrs. Glyn, who had been accustomed to everything that wealth could com mand, seated in the small, low-ceiling fed, shabbily furnished sitting room of the little suburban house—one of a long, monotonous row. Gilbert was at home when Barbara arrived, and his face was a little -flushed as he opened the door to her and greeted her in the narrow hall. Gnbert was only human, and he felt just a passing pang of humiliation as he welcomed the girl lie loved, the girl who had known him in such dif ferent circumstances to these sur roundings. But Barbara had not been with Gil bert and his mother and the two girls long before she had quite cheered them up. "It is very hard on Gilbert," said Mrs. Glyn during the temporary ab sence of her son. "I can do not...
Health Management of Pigs, [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
Health Management of Pigs, The notes herewith are by a Gippslaud pig breeder aud fattener, whose success as a man who makes his business pay gives value to his remarks. "To begiu with," he says, "it is easier to make pigs healthy than it is to restore them to health after they have been at tacked by disease. To be profit able, pigs should be kept iu a growing condition, and this is pre vented if not healthy. Health of the herd is a first essential to make the business of pig raising success ful and money making. The healthy pig has a good appetite, his food is properly digested and assimilated, giving growth and gain. "Pneumonia and a number of other diseases carry pigs of! as quickly as cholera, though they may not be as contagious or in fectious. Pigs recovering from cholera or other diseases, when in weakened condition, catch cold very easily, which develops rapidly into pneumonia, and a quick re lapse follows in their weakened con dition. Pigs receive less care usually, either i...

II. Hawes Park—like Death—has many gates, and that Mr. Stoggs should ar rive without his host's knowledge was not in any way remarkable. Jock hint ed to Mr. Mulgrave, in a hurried aside before dinner, that the man of mil lions had lost his luggage at the junc tion, but that he had heen able to fit him out secretly with clothes for the evening. Mr. Mulgrave approved of this as a friendly act. The dining-room at Hawes Park was a very splendid apartment, but Ga briel Green—to give the pseudo-Stoggs his real name—was accustomed to the splendors of the mansions of the great, and viewed the display of sil ver on sideboard and table, and even the pictures on the walls, with a quiet ly appraising eye rather than with the gaping wonder of the humble. It had been intended that he should take Syl via in to dinner, but Sylvia, after learning the result of Jock's interview with her father, had determined never to touch food again, and was in point of fact crying her eyes out in her rose pink bou...

. III. The Cabinet Minister and his secre tary had gone to their apartments. A despatch box had come from town, and public affairs claimed them. Other guests made their adieus, and by eleven o'clock only a small and inti mate group remained grouped by the drawing-room fire—host and hostess, vicar and vicar's wife, and Jock Bal lina. Mr. Mulgrave stood with his •back to the fire, gently see-sawing from heel to toe in front of the carved emblazoned mantel. "I am agreeably surprised in Mr. Stoggs," he observed complacently. "His outlook is very refreshing. It is not always that the very rich ap preciate the trials and temptations of the poor. Quite a privilege to know liim." "Oh, a young man of excellent prin ciples," chanted Mr. Trott, the vicar, in his clear, gently .mournful mono tone; "one can see at once that wealth has not spoiled him." "I think he has a very kind face," put in the vicar's wife timidly, and no one dissented. " 'Kind hearts,' " quoted Mr. Mul grave, see-sawing, " ...

A HORSELESS TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
A HORSELESS TOWN. At the doors of Indianapolis there is to be the first truly horseless city in America, and—save, perhaps, for those places where oxen,, goats, cam els, or what not else furnish native and locomotive power—the first horse less city of the world. The actual construction work is well under way, and in two or three years there will be a complete town. The horse that tries to enter, says the "Motor," will be turned back as sternly as motorists used to be from the strip on the Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn. The man with the motor car may enter free as air. It is planned to make this city, which is named Speedway, an indus trial city devoted to the interests of the motor-car trade.

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914
WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some thing. It usually costs a man something to listen to flattery. Life is not all night and conflict; morning breaks at last. Know your man before you let his opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the same thing as strength of character. To be conscious that you are ijr i>orant is a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier than practising, but not half so ef fectual. Everything that thou reprovest in another, thou must most carefully avoid in thyself.—Cicero. A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in au hour. Many of the things which worry us most are trifles when we come to examine them closely. To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.—Sterne. Nine-tenths of the people who fail in life do so because they have never appreciated the value of thorough ness. Only for the cheerful does the tree ol li...
