THE DAIRY A GENUINE GET-RICH-QUICK PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
THE DAIRY A GENUINE GET-RICH-QUICK PROPOSITION. Superintendent Malcolm H. Gard ner, of the Holstein-Friesiau Advan ced Registry of America, lias a fac ulty of saying things in a striking and unique way. Here is what he has to say regarding the disposition of pure-bred sires and the value *6f cow-testing associations Not one pure blood ball out of ten that is born is needed for use in purebred herds. Sale for the other nine must be found for grading up, or they must be either vealed or raised as beef steers. Breeders of Hoi steins are vitalij interested in arous ing the interest of farmer-dairymen in the betterment of their herds, and there is no present better way to ac- / complish this than by the organisa tion of testing associations. Under this pl?n an association is formed containing enough herds to give steady employment to a competent mf,n who remains one, day at each place, the cows owned by the mem bers of the association being asses sed pro rata to pay the wages of the man ...

CHAPTER V. HOW THE BULL UPSET JOSH HETHERINGTON'S PLANS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
CHAPTER V. HOW THE BULL UPSET JOSH HETHERINGTON'S PLANS. It was a beautiful May morning i the first of the month, but every thing was unusually forward for the time of the year-the trees in Wynth shay Park were beginning to burst into leaf. Twenty - years had elapsed since Joshua Hetherington wooed Sabina Ossington. The trees that had been saplings then were now full grown ; "the old house had changed little, save, that the ivy which then covered it had grown thicker ; the garden look ed much the same as it had done when the stranger fronf over the i seas took possession. But there was ? a change in the master of the house | as he stood looking out of the win- j dow, as he had done so long ago, j over the gardens and the park. I Twenty years ago Josh had black hair ; now it was iron-grey. His fea tures had become more hawk-like ; his face, which had never worn a par ticularly pleasant expression, was now harsh and forbidding ; moreover, there was a crafty expression in his. eyes whi...
PART 3. CHAPTER IV.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
PART 3. - CHAPTER IV.-(Continued.) "I am sorry Aunt Mary is out," she said, saying the very thing she ought not to have said, as it gave him an opening to speak on the sub ject she wished to avoid. "I am glad Mrs. Jermain is out, - as I have something I wish to say to you," replied Josh, as he seated him self near her, looking at the refined but sad face, and from her his eyes wandered to the lovely old garden and beyond it to the well-wooded park. Then before his mind's eye there rose a vision of a rustic bench at one side of a field-path, and a girl shabbily dressed, who listened with blushing face, but the light of joy on it, to his words of love. That had been his first wooing, very different from this ; then he roused himself. It seemed to him there had been a long pause, but in reality it had not oc cupied more than a minute for that picture to stamp itself on his mind. "I daresay your father told you that I had asked his permission to make you an offer of marriage," he said, ...

Whilst administering to the sufferer Wedmore notices a small bag and a loaded revolver under the pil low. On examination the bag proves to contain blue diamonds of enor mous value.

A GOOD TWO MILES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
A G'OOD TWO MILES. After a hard day's work at the manoeuvres, a battalion of Terri I torials were marching wearily along a seemingly interminable country road, , when they met a man on horseback. "I say," said the officer in com mand, "how far is it to the next town ?" "About two miles," was the re ply For another hour the soldiers tramped, and they met another stranger. "How far is it to the next^to^rta?" ho was asked. "A good two miles, I should say," was the reply. Another hour passed, and then an other horseman was encountered. "How far ?" he repeated, in an swer to the same question ; "oh, not far, only about two miles." "Well," sighed the optimistic offi cer, "thank goodness, we are hold ing our own, anyhow."
NOTHING SERIOUS. A BURNING QUESTION SOLVED. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
NOTHING SERIOUS. $ A BURNING QUESTION SOLVED. A clergyman of a certain village was one Sunday questioning his scholars. He asked them quite a few questions which they answered very well. After he had finished he asked the scholars if anyone would care to ask him a question or two. There was silence for a time, then a little boy got up and asked the following question : "Why was Adam never abby ?" The clergyman was rather non plussed, and did not know what an swer to give the boy. All at once a little boy in the corner got up and said : "Please, sir, I'll tell him." "Go on, then," said the clergy man, encouringly ; "you tell him." "Please, sir, it was because there was no one to nuss him," came the triumphant answer.
Weather Made to Order. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
Weather SVlade to Order. Is it possible to make weather to order ? In the opinion of that emi nent scientist, Sir Oliver Lodge, it is by no means beyond the powers of man, and he advances the sug gestion that exploration of the up per regions would result in dis coveries which would enable us to control the weatner. The latter, he contends, is merely a matter of electrical conditions, and tho ingredients necessary for fine weather are an upper atmosphere charged with positive electricity and a negative charge upon tho earth's surface. Much, he says, could be done by placing a copper rod round the earth parallel to the Equator and discharging millions of amperes (units) from this rod. Sir Oliver Lodgo points out that we have spent millions on building rail ways, and why not invest capital in controlling the weather by this means ? Meantime, while we are thinking about the copper rod, much might be done by electricians. Sir Oliver Lodge suggrsts that they should as cend a high mountai...
WONDERFUL WOODCRAFT. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
WON PER FU.L WOODCRAFT. The discussion nil arose because a tree, in happy innocence, happened to be growing near to the camping ground of the 1st Mudshire Engi neers. Sapper Smith was convinced that the tree in question was an oak. Sapper Brown was equally sure that it was a birch. And at that the matter rested. There appeared to be no means of settling the dispute, when suddenly La nee-Corporal Iiobinson hove in sight, and was called upon to arbi trate. With martial gait, Robinson strode ; up to the tree, examined it criti I cally, tapped it with his cano, smelled it ; then, after a long and. thoughtful silence, delivered his j verdict. | "It's a wooden one, all right !" quoth he. Some women marry for money, some for love, and some for a home. It is not known why men marry. 1935.
A NOBLE FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
A NOBLE FIGHT. Two gentlemen, costers by profes sion, were passing a wet afternoon in the British Museum. In the course of their travels they happened 011 one of those dilapidat ed statues that certain people gapo at and pretend to find beautiful. It was, for some obscure reason, called "Victory," though a better title would have been "Chipped Oft the Old Block." "Crumbs !" said Bill. "Look-at this 'ere. 'Arry ! Ain't 'alf 'ad a time of it, 'e ain't !" 'Arry looked. At last an expres sion of regret spread over his fea tures. "Bill," he murmured, "I'd give sumfink to seo the bloke wot lost that fight. !"
CHEERING. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
CHEERING. The wealthy Englishman had bought an estate without having seen it. He believed that he could trust the man he bought " it from, and a month or two after he went over to have a look at the place. The drive from the nearest rail way station to the newly-acquired property was a matter oi twelve miles. The Englishman hired a Highlander to drive him.- As the cart jogged along, the stranger said : "I suppose you know the country hereabouts pretty well, friend ?" "Ay, every foot o't," the Scot an swered. "And do you know the Glen Ac cra ?" "Ay, weel," was the reply, "What sort of a place is it ?". The Scot smiled grimly. "Aweel," he said, "if ye saw the ae'il tethered on it,; ye'd juist say, 'Poor brute !' -*1
THE POWER OF HABIT. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
THE POWER OF HABIT. The young man took a piece of paper and a pencil from his poc ket, and laid the paper on his knee. "I will have something important" to say to you in a minute. Miss Jones," he said. Then he read over carefully what was written on the paper, and crossed out a word. "Superfluous," he said, half-., to himself. He went over it again, and crossed out another word. "It's just as strong without that," he muttered. "We are all too prone to use adjectives and adverbs, any way." He picked up the paper, and seem ed about to begin to read from it, but suddenly stopped. "That whole sentence might as well come out," he said. " The meaning is perfectly clear without it. Conciseness is really the cry ing need of the hour." Then, turn ing to the girl, he said, "Be mine !" Thus we see the power of habit. He was a sub-editor.
IN OTHER LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
A kite lifted a boy aloft at the military parade ground at Rouchin, near Lille, recently. lixperiir.ents were being made with the kite, when the anchor-rope broke, and the boy, who was standing near, seized the end of the cord as the kite rose in the air, in an attempt to hold it down. As the kite lifted him off his feet, he seemed powerless to re lease his hold, and was carried aloft while his mother, who was present, shrieked and implored the inventor to save her son. The kite rose quickly to a height of about fifty feet, with the boy dangling at the end of the cord and screaming for help. Then suddenly it dipped, and when it was at a height of about twenty feet the boy let go. He crashed heavily to the ground, and was picked up suffering from severe internal injuries. Experimental tests have been made this fall in Chicago of a semaphore signal for the control of street traffic at the crossings. The semaphore is broadly similar to those used in railroad service. It is ope rated by...
Trams on Holy Ground. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
Trams on Holy Ground. The statement that Jerusalein and its vicinity are to be modernised by the laying do\tfn of an electric lighting plant and the construction of a water supply _ from WadyForah, and a tramway between the city and Bethlehem, causes little dis quiet in quarters where any vandalism in Jerusalem would be resented most keenly. " Really, I think the tramway to Bethlehem will be quite a good thing," says a prominent member of the Palestine Exploration Fund Committee. "It will be well outside the city walls, and there is nothing of interest that needs to be jealously preserved on the four or five miles of country road between Jerusalem and Beth lehem. For the electric light, pro ject, too, there is much to be said, and the water supply is certainly ur gently needed." Up to the pre sent, Jerusalem, so far as the city within the old walls is concerned, ?lias suffered singularly little from its contact with ' twentieth-century civilisation. The railway terminus is well outs...
An Oft-Told Tale. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 3 July 1914
An Oft-Told Tale. K Y The tale of the loss of the Birken head has often been related, but can never be too often told. The troop transport left Simon's Bay on February 26, 1852, bound for Port Elizabeth. Seven hours after leaving Capetown she struck a rock, and twenty-five minutes later all that was visible was her masts, crowded with despairing survivors. Among the troops on board (drafts sent out to the Kaffir War, then raging), who gave a still unfor gotten example of calm discipline and unflinching courage under such terrible circumstances, were some of the Twelfth Lancers under Captain Bond-Sheldon, a veteran wlio still survives. Ordered to get the horses over board, the captain succeeded in do ing so, his own charger amorig the rest. Some swam landwards, some o\it to sea ; but most doubt less became the prey of the sharks, which, hovering around the doomed vessel, added a new terror to the situation. Then an effort was made to get out the boats, filled with women and children....
