RAISE THE HEIFERS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 16 February 1915

RAISE THE HEIFERS. No farmer should fail to raiso the heifers from his good cows. Tho expense of raising a heifer is paid in instalments, and when a cow is bought, it goes in a bunch. A man may raise an extra fine cow, but a really good one is hard to buy; will cost three or four times as much as tho raising of a heifer. There is always a risk in buying that the cow may not do as well in her new location, and it takes timo for lier to get acquainted with your herd. Tho hoifer raised on the farm is familiar with her breed and location. Mr Beginner, always raiso the good calf from a pure bred siro. It pays. -W. E. Elliott.

DRYIING PEACHES AND APRICOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 16 February 1915

DRYIING PEACHES AND APRICOTS. Briofly, all that has to be done is to split the fruit in halves, remove the pit, spread the halves on trays, cut side uppermost, and, after exposing it to the fames of burning sulphur long enough to fix the colour put it out in the sun until driod to a leathery con sistency. The requisites aro a number of wooden trays-3 ft. by 2 ft. will be found the most convenient size-a gas tight box or cabinet in which to put the trays of fruit for sulphuring, and a sharp knife for cutting. There is nothing better for the latter purpose than a well-worn dinner-knife with a short, thin blade. Theoretically, the j riper the fruit the better tlio sample, but iu praetieo it should be firm enough to staud up on the trays and liold the juice which exudes into the cup during tho sulphuring process. An elaborate sulphuring-house is not at'all necessary. An inverted box large enough to cover a stack of from 12 to 20 trays is com j monly used. A great many of theso covers ar...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 16 February 1915

MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent.) The Greater Melbourne project is again in evidence. There have been so many threats of this unnecessary addition to the governing bodies of the metropolis that tears of its actu ally being brought into existence should be hard to arouse. The pre sent scheme, from what can be learn ed, has some features that commend it-such, for instance, as the con solidating of management of the street traffic facilities. But the good and necessary things which it is planned to do could be done without the creation of an unwieldy and un necessary body that in many other respects would be providing a fifth wheel to the Local Government coach and a costly fifth wheel at that. There is £500 worth of damage to the furniture and fixtures at the Police Depot where the German in terned were until recently kept in comfort that would make many loyal citizens who have been vainly seek-, ing work for some months , think they were in the lap of luxury should i...

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 16 February 1915

FOR WOMEN Dining the past few months (says the "Daily Chronicle") women in in creasing numbers have been practising rifle shooting. There have always been a few enthusiasts who have been among tho most faithful members at both tho outside ranges in' summer, and the inside ones in winter, but various causes have conspired to ren der tho sex in general apathetic in tho matter. One of these has undoubtedly been tho difficulty of learning. Most ot the covered ranges are in towns, and as they have beon got up by men for their own instruction and amusement, women mimbors aro not included. For instance, in Loudon, only two or threo clubs admit women, and then they are only allowed to shoot on special days. In consequence they have not been given many opportunities to compete in matches, as the opposing team in all probability could not provide competi tion of their own sex to shoot against them. Thus their prowess has not been encouraged by ambition, and tho desire to excel. Xow, however, ...

AS HORSE—SO BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 16 February 1915

AS HORSE-SO BOY. It was a slippery day, and the liorses drawing heavy loads over a littlo hill in a city street were bard pat to it to keep their footing. Their drivers, all of whom were merciful enough to halt them half-way up the ascent and let them catch their breath, differed widely in the means employed to start them again. "Get up! Get up!" shouted one, plying his whip, with every ex clamation. "G'lang there!" cried an other, confining the use of his whip to a menacing snap of the lash. The beasts responded with a brave struggle, sometimes successful, sometimes futile. But one teamster, leaving his whip in its socket, took his near horse by the bridle and tugged at it with a cheery: "Come on, now! Lot's see what we can do after our rest!" The effect on his team might have seemed magical to an observer out of reach of his voice. Signalling with their ears that they un derstood, both horses strained forward with real eagerness, clutching at the pavement with their pointed shoes,...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 16 February 1915

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Kusticus.") ' Tho wheat market nowadays is in a condition that provides plenty of men tal oxerciso for those who attempt to follow its vagaries. Owing to an al most completo absence of supplies, ope rations in wheat during last week re presented an insignificant total quan tity, and tho market was without ani mation throughout. Direct in tho coun try there were transactions covering several hundreds of bags, on tho basis of the rates quoted in tho city,, the lat ter receiving confirmation in the sales, which were effected at public auction. Tlia announcement that the Government had made arrangements for tho im portation of only 1,000,000 bushels of grain, welcomo as it was, especially to ilour millers, afforded no immediate re lief to the local situation, and the diffi culty of buyers was not diminished in tho least. So keen has been the de mand for lots suitable for seed that holders have been able to exact almost any terms, and oven for faulty samples there ...
