THE NEW WHITE PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
THE NEW WHITE PIG. It is difficult" to believe that the now famous white pigs which, represented by the large variety, are found aid over the world, were the creation of a Yorkshire weaver but little more than sixty years ago. Still more difficu-it is it to recognise that before its appear ance at tne .Royal in 1851 there was practically no British breed of pigs at ali. It is true that (there are types Avhich were xound m different coun tries, like the eariy Berkshire's; but in the modern sense of the world there was no standard, and the pig popula tion was bu» emerging from a stave ol barbarity, their ancestors of fifty years before navmg been to a large extent kept m droves and allowed t&lt;o run wild. There were white pigs of great size in the North which were slow in growth, long m body, head and legs, liab in the s-ide, coarse m the hair, full oi' activity, prolific and hardy, but poor producers of meait, which was too lean, and when ready ^o kill wanting in mat tendern...

THE STRAW HAT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
THE STRAW HAT. &lt;>co1»lo never think of brushing their si raw hurts; the straw doesn't seem to j.t a lint insdo to be brushed, the dust o.-.-ii t show on it so much, and so -;.ey brush all their other hats ami iiji. their straw hats go. ic if they would brush their straw hats as thoy do the others tney would keep fresh and good-looking much lon ger; this is not so much on account of the brushing itsolf as because of the protection that brushing it, keep J.ig it clean, gives it from the effects of moisture. What inak s a straw hat look shabby s rain. If rain falls on a dusfy hat every drop spreads, fixes the dust, and makos tho chApeau dingy. The same Vain fulling on a clean hat would have far less effect" on its appearance. Brush your straw liat, and the ribbon toj, just as you would any other, and you will have the satisfaction of keep ing it in fair condition. Husband: "What did the doctor say, Mary?" Wife: ."Not much. He asked me to put out my tongue.1 "Yes." "And he...
The Rupanyup Motor and Coach-Building Works. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
Tfos Rupanyup Ms tar and ■Goach-Buiiding Wsrks. ■ ■■■«& That Rupanyup and district is for- j tunate in having such an up-to-date establishment as Messrs Smith and Moore's motor and coach buildin g ■works has been realised by many, especially in regard to the conscien tiousness and thorough workmanship manner that every article in any ; branch of this enterprising firm's woi k j is turned out. Yet there" are many again who still entertain those ultra principles that nothing good can be done locally, and send their business away from the town and district they . reside in, arguing that it is absurd to think that men with brains, talent and capability would remain in any country town. Is it any wonder then, with so many entertaining those views, that the State is cursed with centrali sation, and these vei'y people realize too late that they themselves are the sufferers, both in pocket and quality of the article required, as compared j with their broad-minded neighbors !

LEGUMES AS FARM CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
LEGUMES AS FARM CROPS. (By Cliaries F. Oasa, in "Kimball's Dairy Farmer.") Practical farmers generally notice that their cultivated orops, as maize, tobacco, or potatoes, do best when grown where a. good clover sod was ploughed under. Centuries ago, the Dest larmers m Europe recognised the value of the legumes. 'lne Greeks and llomans grew vetch and lucerne —or medica, as it was then called. This name, "Medtea,1' was given to lucerne becauso it seemed to improve the soil and was such a good feed tor the stock that 'they considered it as a medicine, Ciover was one of the main crops in the Norfolk rotation, which, proved so valuable in the agri cultural development of .England in the early part ot the eighteenth cen tury. Boy beans are natives of China and Japan, wiiere they have been grown tor centuries. There they are valued as food, as a soil ^ improver, and as teed for stock. Thus, the legumes are not a newly developed species of plants, but have been grown tor many years and cent...
Sheep Breeders' Show. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
Sheep Breeders' Show. The annual show held under the auspices of the heep Breeders' Asso ciation was opened on Monday morn ing at the woo] warehouse of Messrs Groldsbrough, Mort and Co Ltd, Mel bourne, Since the . day was devoted ' solely to judging, there was- only a limited attendance of the general public. Owing to' the unfavorable climatic conditions that have prevailed during the last few months the dis play of sheep falls short of the usual standard. ^ erinoes in particular are poorly represented, and some of the exhibits are in obviously poor con dition, Leading breeders of the Western Plains, famous- ;for the rare quality of their wool clip,, found their animals so-debilitated as the result of the severe season that they deemed it unwise to send them to the show- ; - The merino classes are seen at dis advantage, and of the first five cata logued four are entirely without exhibits, a fact that can only be taken as of ominous significance. The fine ■wool tu erinoes have suffer...

QUEENS WHO COULD EARN THEIR OWN LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
QUEENS WHO COULD EAHN THEIR OWN LIVING. Apropos of Queen Mary's essay in paiu.mg un china during her tour of the Potteries, a French contemporary remarks that most present-day qireens could earn their living at a pinch. The Queen of the Belgians has taken a medical degree at Leipzig, and assisted her father, Duke Cbarles Theodore of Bavaria, in his practice as an oculist. Carm-en Sylv^ could, of course, make a good income as an author, and might obtain ^ post as secre tary, for m addition to her know ledge of languages, she writes short hand and is an expert tspist. Another versatile Sovereign is the Queen of Norway, who paints admir ably, trims hats in a style that would ensure her a good salary from any high-class milliner, and is a book- " binder of more than average skill. The German Empress and Queen Wilhelmina of Holland might keep themselves going by painting minia tures. Those who wish to appear wise among fools, among the wise seem foolish. "Any girl," says a lady lecturer,...
ALONE I DID IT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
ALONE I DID IT. In Stivichal, near Coventry, stands a building unique among places of wor I ship. &lt;John Green, a stonemason, in 1810 laid tho first stone of the edifice, | and seven years later lie completed it. i In ;ill that time he derived assistance : from none, doing all the .work with his i own hands, until, the uhurcli was ready for its interior fittings. This is tho ;v stone structure in England—and probably in the world—of which every stone was laid by one man. The building accommodates quite a large congregation, and tho church derives a considerable revenuo from the contri butions of sightseers, who are drawn to tlie placo through curiosity.
A NEW KIND OF ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
A NEW KIND OF ANIMAL. The showman looked worried and thoughtful. His menagerie was dense ly crowded, it is true ; but how was he to get them out, so as to make room for those waiting to pay for admission outside ? At length a good idea occurred to him. Painting up in large letters on a piece of calico : "This way to the. egress," he hung it up at an angle of his show. The simple country people, think ing "egress" was some strange new animal just added to the collection, passed through the slit in the cur tain, and, to their amazement, found themselves outside the show. Seeing the crowd making its way to the corner where the "new animal" was on show, everybody followed, and the outgoing stream being so great, no one, when once caught in its eddy, could turn back. Then the showman smiled, and let in those waiting to pay for admis sion outside the main entrance.
ONCE WAS ENOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
ONCE WAS ENOUGH. This 'talo relates how a bishop, ac costed by a noat but liuugry stranger, derived profit i'roni the encounter. The bishop, so ruus the yarn, took iho needy one to a hotel, and shared a gorgeous dinner with him, yet, hav ing left his episcopal wallet in the pocket of a different episcopal • jacket, suddenly faced the omUarrassmeii't of not possessing the wherewithal to pay up. "Never mind," exclaimed his guest. "I have enjoyed dining with you, and 1 shall be charmed to shoulder the cost, a Permit me." Whereupon .the stranger paid for two. This worried tho prela.o, who insisted: "Just let me call a cab and we'll run up to my hotel, where 1 shall have tho pleasure ol' reimbursing you." But the stranger met the suggestion with; "See here, old man. You've stuck nio for a bully good dinner, but hanged if I'm going to let you stick me for cab faro as well!"
THE DAIRY. THE MECHANICAL MILKER. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
THE DAIRY. THE MECHANICAL MILKER. InTentora have been working on the mechanical milker for years. Like every other invention of importance thert were necessarily many failures befor® success crowned the efforts of the man who-was able to picture in his mind a machine that would re lieve the dairy farmer of much of the so-called drudgery of his work. To-daj the milking machine is a success. There are unquestionably many, who will tell you otherwise, but the truth of the situation is demonstrated by the machines that are in practical successful operation every day in the year. The mere fact that the use of the milking machine has been discontin ued on some farms may be mislead ing. An illustration will make this clear. A dairy farmer who milks about 100 cows producing a very high class product which tops the market in a western city installed a machine a few years ago. The expense in this case was an item of considerable im portance. After using the milking machine for a time it was d...
PART 5. CHAPTER VIII. THERESE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
PART 5. CHAPTER YIII. THERESE. "The Cottage" stood in a shady _ lane about half a mile from the vil lage of Old Wynthshay. It was a long, low white stone building, of a couple of storeys. At least, it had been white many years ago ; now it was of nondescript colour, but so covered with creepers and a luxuriant rose-tree that in the summer very little of the walls were to be seen. A good-sized flower garden surrounded it, and beyond it was a well-kept kitchen garden. In this house Mrs. Morris had lived from the time she took posses sion, a few weeks after Joshua had gone to reside at the Hall. She was an excellent tenant, and he had never had any reason to regret hav ing let it to her in such a hasty fashion ; he rather liked her, and considered her a most fascinating wo man, and he was surprised at her re maining in the quiet little village, where the country families ignored her, and the only, people who visited at the cottage were the vicar, his wife, and the doctor. Later, after ...
OF RURAL INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
OF: EUML "INTEREST, (By "Busticus.") Mr. Elwood Mead lias been taking a largo suction of the irrigation settlers severely to task for gambling with the seasons. The gamble has not come off this year, and some of them are conse quently in a bad way. But there are others. These have reserves of fodder and. are benefiting from their neigh bors ' sorry plight. With the melancholy fact that there is reason for Mr. Mead dropping his customary urbanitj' and waxing warm in denunciation of the hit-or-miss methods, it is pleasing to read accounts of some oi: the successes in the Nyah Settlement which have been published recently. It must also be borne in mind that the season there has not been kind. The excellent position the intelligent workers of the land there are now in is therefore all the more creditable. The writer describing Mr. James Thwaites's vineyard, says it contains GO acres, but at this time of year the gaunt trunks are devoid of leaves. Be tween the rows rape, tares, and peas ...

CHAPTER IX. A COMPACT. I "Laurie, -will you come with ma in to the conservatary ?" said Pat, in a low tone. I The gentleman had just come into the drawing room, and Laurie Hat ton had a once joined her, but her [ words told him she had something to | say to him—that she did not care to J risk being overheard. "Of course, I will," he said, as she rose ; and they crossed the room fol lowed by the gaze of several pairs of eyes. "Won't my father and your, uncle I be delighted ?" she said, as they en tered the conservatory. He looked rather bothered as h« answered : "Yes, I expect they, will b# pleas«d, Pat." Pat laughed merrily, then whan they had got to the end of th« con servatory she seated herself on a fancy bamboo chair and pushed an other towards him. "Sit down, Laurie, wo'r# going to have a confidential chap, and it'a ever bo much more comfortable to (have one's companion on a level." Laurie seated himself, and hia gravity gave place to a smila as h« said : "Pat, do you know what...

A BONUS EARNED. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914
A BONUS EARNED. People at sea bet on all sorts of contingencies. An emigrant ship from England was recently approaching ! the- Australian coast, and an inter esting event was expected at any motnent in the married people's quarters. Considerable speculation And excitement was developed over tine question whether the happy event would take place within or without the three-mile limit. A great cheer went up when it was announced that the little stranger was legally an Australian, and had earned the £5 baby bonus of the Commonwealth. A minute or two earlier the child would have been a native of Stepney, London, to which parish children born at sea belong.— "Daily Chronicle.
