JOTTINGS FROM DOOKIE. RECORD PRICES FOR STOCK RECREATION RESERVE, A.N.A, AND BRANCH LINE. (From Our Own Correspondent). Mr Edward Tacey. local butcher, made a big hit. at thbo Tatura stock sale last Thursday, when amongst the competi tion of thirteen leading butchers from surrounding towns, he bought all the primest and highest priced stockc at the market, paying as high as £14 10j for cows, £13 5s for bullocks, £11 2s 6d for heifers, £1 9s 6d to £1 43 9d for ewes and fat lambs. A pen of 25 fat lambs averaged £1 9 6ti per head. The work ef grading the newly pur ohased recreation reserve has been com menced, the work I aving been let by contract. A road machine loaned by the Sbeppartou Shire Ocuncil is being used, and is doing splendid work. The ground has been surveyed and a football boundary pegged out; and it should not be long before the leather starts flying through the air. The fence on the north side is being moved back, and probably all the work will be completed in a short E...
NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 14 May 1914
NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE. We think of Napoleon as the great Lord of.War, the butcher of human lives, the builder of a great empire, built only to fall even before the death of its founder. It is well to remember that his gen ius was great also in other most last ingly fruitful fields. He was not only a great warrior, but also a great states-' man-and as such he did not fail to re alise the importance to the community of arts and sciences. Writing to the astronomer Oriani, from Milan, which he had entered in triumph, Napoleon said: "The sciences which do honor to the human mind and the arts which em bellish life and perpetuate great achievements for posterity, should be especially honored under free govern ments. " . I invite the scholars to meet and to give me their opinions as to the means that should be taken, and the. needs to be fulfilled, in order to bring new life and activity into the sciences and the fine arts. Those who wish to go to France will be received with dis tinction by...
The Grateful Father. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 14 May 1914
The Grateful Father. A young man, at the risk of his life, saved a beautiful girl from drowning. Her grateful father seized the rescuer of his daughter by the hand, and, in a voice trembling with emotion, said: - "Noble youth, to you I am indebted for everything that makes life dear. to me. Which reward will you take -fifty thousand pounds or the hand of my daughter?" "I'll take the daughter," replied the heroic rescuer, thinking thereby to get both the girl and the money. "You have well chosen," replied the grateful father. "I could not have given you the fifty thousand pounds just yet, anyhow, as I have not laid up that amount, being only a contri butor to the magazines; but my daughter is yours for life. Bless you, my children."
What It Meant. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 14 May 1914
What It Meant. " A good story is being told of a Parliamentary candidate who is "nur sing" a Sussex constituency. in view of the next election. He was earnest ly expounding the emancipation of the laborer to -an agricultural audience, and was approaching the heart- of the subject, when lie noticed that the. countrymen. looked uneasily at one another. Could it be that he had not made the.necessity of the great deliv-. erance clear-to their minds. He re traced the steps, and enforced some of the prelim'nary points over again. The uneasiness of the audience visi bly increased. At last one stalwart cottager rose and made for the door. It was a sig nal for a general movement. The elec tors bore the candidate no ill-will they simply filed out. He wiped his brown, and turned in despair to the chairman. "What does it mean?" he asked. "I called them -to liberty, and they turn their backs on me!" S""It means," said the chairman, "that they fully appreciate your prin ciples, but it is nearly t...

Something to Help. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 14 May 1914
Something to Help. When -the Kaiser announced to Prince von Buelow that he had deci ded to appoint him Chancellor of the Empire,, he was surprised to see a shadow of disappointment cross the statesman's face. ' What's the matter?" he demanded. "Are you not satisfied?" "Pardon -me, sire," replied the Prince, "I did not wish to appear un grateful, but I was thinking of my wife. I know that she detests the im mense Chancellor's palace, where we shall have to live, and she will want the whole of the interior thoroughly cleaned and redecorated. I am afraid, therefore, that we shall have to pass the nest two or threen months in the midstof ;cleaning operations." "Doi't worry about that, my dear von Bueloj," -replied the Kaiser.

WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD BE UP. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 14 May 1914
WI-iCH END OF A" POST^SHOULD BE UP. It is a common belief among farm ers that a post will last longer if set in the ground the reyerse of the way I grew in the tree, in other words, with the butt end up. Accordingly one sees many posts, especially end and gate posts, with the small end down. The supposition is that sap in a tree is always ascending, or at least that it is easier for the sap to go up' than down. Consequently, it is argued, turning a post upside down tends to prevent the rise of water, helps to keep the wood dry, and, therefore, renders it less liable to de cay. As a matter of fact, sap or water can flow in either direction with equal facility and the popular notion to the contrsry is incorrect. Careful experiments on the relative -durability of post timbers have been made by the Ohio Agricultural Experi ment Station (says the "Scientific American") and the above questiot. was considered. One fence in par ticular contained 156 black locust posts, of which 86 were set ...

IFor Children's Hacking Cough at Night, 1 Woods' Great PeppcamintCure,ls6d. THE RECENT EPIDEMICS OF" SMIALLPOX AND DIPHTHERIA Would certainly not have attained such proportions if the hygienic fact were more generally known that the disinfection of the mouth by a reliable and harmless antiseptic is a great pro tecting factor agairsts all ailments where the infection is through the throat or respiratory tract. By putting 3 drops of SANDER'S EUCALPT EXTRACT, on a piece of loaf-sugar and allowing it to dissolve in the mouth that cavity is thoroughly dis infected. The volatile nature of SANDER'S EXTRACT makes it penetrate every crevice. SANDER'S EXTRACT is not n.aseous nor de pressing like the common eucalyptus and possesses great antiseptic power. By using SANDER'S EXTRACT, you avoid the uncertain composition of the lozenge you have the benefit of the strongest antiseptic that can be used with safety, and the result is protection - "om all infection.

The Neighborly Spirit. The neighborly spirit is an excel lent thing to cultivate, although not, perhaps, as it is cultivated in the fol lowing story: "How do you like your new home?" a friend asked a man who had re cently moved into the village. "Pretty well." "Have you called on your neigh bors yet?" "I haven't yet," the newcomer ad mitted. "But I'm going to if any more of my wood and coal is miss-. ing."

A Persuasive Tongue. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 14 May 1914
A. Persuasive Tongue. At school in Cornwall, Mr. Rudyard Kipling,- never a brilliant scholar, was known as "Gigs": (i.e., "gig-lamps," meaning spectacles), and was esteem. ed because he won the confidence of an austere spinster who kept the lo cal tuckshop, with the help of three cats.. She hated the college youths, grndgingly took their cash, and stern ly denied them credit. But "Gigs" went round one day, and, while his companions were bursting v-it, sub dued laughter,..he blandly "talked cat" to the old lady, and .succeeded in win ning. ler confidence to such an extent that his name-the only one-was placed on her books.
