TURF TOPIC[?] ("[?] [?] [?].") [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 1 April 1915
TURF TOPiC After CarHfca had won the Champion Race from end to end, her admirers as against Mountain Knight were heard again in tho land. They tben claimed that Carlita could not havo been herself when she put up such a poor showing in the St. Leger, and truth to tell there is, it must bo ad mitted', something in tlii* argument. Carlita Has a much better iillj ,ti the end of the Victorian Autumn camp p;iign, than at the start of it. Her racing had brought hpr on. Bjt while giving f'lll consideration for all ex cuses tliat might be advanced in favor of Oarlita, one must still cling to the belief thai, with both thoroughly fit, Mountain Knight will always beat her under "classic" condition. The point will again be put to the test at Rand wick on Saturday, when the pair will again meet in the A.J.C. St. Leger. As both are reported to be working satisfactorily the race is likely to be well worth the money. It is thought probable iliat Carlita will attempt to win all t'ie way. If these t...
FIVE RULES FOR FORTUNE [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 1 April 1915
FIVE RULES FOR FORTUNE 1. Cultivate and perfect your ideas. Experiment. The world is eager for something new, which, however simple it may be, will save labor, or expense, ' or do things better. Let it be more convenient, or promote pleasure-reduce waste. People who handle things in every day use are the natural inventors of better things, and the natural capitalists of to-morrow. Bead the splendid advice that Edison gives. Learn the procedure as to pa tenting in. the chief countries,-then seoure your own legal monopoly for your rights by becoming a patentee. 2. If that workman or foreman, or your ingenious' friend has produced a clever invention put him on the track of famous and wealthy inventors. Mr. F. Town send, an editor, says of the "Inventors' Guide*" "I am re commending it strongly to friends. Best of the kind I i-are seen. It Bhould do a lot of good. It is an incentive telling him where he can obtain the "In ventors' Guide." 3. For yourself obtain thrs book, which tells wh...
THE BEET CROP. TO BE DELIVERED TO THE FACTORY. IS THE DECISION OF THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 1 April 1915
THE BEET CHOP. TO BE DELIVERED TO THE FACTORY. IS THE DECISION OF THE CABINET. Great satisfaction was felt in Maffra yesterday 011 receipt of a telegram stating that the decision of the Cabinet was against selling sugar beets to agents for stock feed instead of manu facturing sugar at the factory. This is a most agreeable piece of news, as con siderable anxiety lias been felt of late concerning the future of tire beetBugar industry. The growers entered into an agreement to deliver their crops to the factory, and when the drought con ditions became so extreme, some few growers desired to obtain permisdon to bhII their beets outside the factory, and thereby get a digger return for their commodity. The Cabinet evidently considered that the beets were the property of the State, and incidentally the people, and could not see why a handful of growers should benefit at the expense of the State, to say nothing of interferring with the establishment of the beet sugar industry.
THE OUTLOOK FOR SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 1 April 1915
THE OUTLOOK FOR SOLDIERS. What is to b camo of our brave de fenders when the war iu over? ia a qnention which properly comes into consideration at this peiiod of hoscili ties. At the end of the Boer war there were high hopes in the breast of "The Ab ent minded Beggar" as he thought of the enthusiasm of his Bend-off to South Africa. He reckoned that as he had done hia best for his country his uervicf-s would be recognised and remembered on his return, and that, the I opening which had been promised him by his forum* employer, or the job he had been led to'expect, would be his a3 certaiu as the day. But in how many instances did he find his hopes blasted. The number of men of hin class who went down through the neglect of those who sang his praises and treated him royally when he ivas a recruit is im possible to say. Will that kind of thing be repeated when that greater war is over 1 Most certainly it will un less the powers that be set themselves I to deal with the question in advanc...

LOAD EVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 1 April 1915
LOAD EVEN. Ju loading a, waggon place the load evenly over the front and liiiul wheels. If any difference is niado it should be on the hind "wheels. They are larger and hence do not sink in as deep as the smaller front wheels. The fact that the load is farther from tho team does not increase the draft on the wag gon. When the team is hitched to something dragging on the ground then the nearer the team is to the load the lighter tho pull. This is due to the fact that the nearer the team is the more the pull will be upward, thus helpiDg to reduce the friction between the load and the ground.

"THE OTHER SIDE." [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 1 April 1915
"THE OTHER SIDE." The Pittsburg " Sentinel" (Queens land) has not been giving entire satis faction with its war reports, as the following editor's note shows :--"We have received the following letter, and judging by one previously received from the same source, can only conclude that our war items are unpalatable to ; the subscriber in question. We pub lish it to show that the lot of an editor is not altogether the 'bed of roses' con sidered by tnany of our readers : Turraliii, Jan. 18 | 15. Editor Pittsworth 'Sentinel.'

THE SEA TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 1 April 1915
THE SEA TRADE. How far it is possible for Germany ' to affect our oversea trade is to many a debatable point.. There is, however, little causo to fear that any sorious damago will bo done. It. is very notice able that where a ship happens to be protected or armed with a few guns it is generally left severely alouo by the enemy's submarines. The East Coast of England is peculiarly liable to attack by reason of its open shores, and here, for tho most part, the damage is being done. It is only necessary for the British Fleet to blockade the Straits of Dover, and screen the North of Scotland, and there would bo no ohanco; but an occasional one for any enemy-craft to get out. Up to this, this has not been done, and the open route is being utilised by the German boats .of destruction. The pinch of hunger is being severely felt in Germany, and thore will be more hunger within the next few month's. The desperate at tempts boing made to deprive England of the advantage of oversea trade are o...
MOON AND THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 1 April 1915
MOON AND THE WEATHER. "Curious" in the "Argus" asks if there is anything in the belief that the nel? moon seen on its bick is a sign of rain. The answer given is :-The in fluence of the moon upon the weather is altogether exaggerated, and the changes have not the influence, as sumed, because the moon is always changing. The facts as to the moon are pretty well expressed in an old verse : The Moon and the Weather May change together ; But change of the Moon Does not change the Weather. If we'd no moon at all And that may seem strange We still should have weather That's subject to change.

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 1 April 1915
MELBOURNE LETTER ifrom our Special Correspondent.) Some suburban branches of tlic Aus tralian Women's National League are arranging public meetings to stimulate recruiting, but it would seem to be wasted effort. They arc very much in earnest about it. They get good speakers to deliver rousing addresses; they arrango nitre programmes of patriotic music, and they get togcthei attendances that fill tho halls- But the people who compose .these attendances are not tho right sort. They are cmin cntlv respectable ladies and gentlemen, but in the first- place they do not uccd impassioned eloquence to "convinco them of tho need for more men for the front, and in the second they are abso lutely ineligible for _ active service. Some of the ladies bring their knitting and arc stirred to dropping a few ,'stitches, perhaps, by the thrilling ap jjeals to patriotism. Everybody waxes enthusiastic, applauds to tho echo and sings the National Anthem with fer vor. . But at the end of it all, to use a h...

DIED OF HIS RICHES. FATAL GOLD BULLET. THE PAGE THAT KILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 8 April 1915
DIED OF HIS RICHES. FATAL GOLD BULLET. THE PAGE THAT KILLS, That tha Germans cannot keep going very much longer is the opinion of a French officer who has taken part in all the fighting since tha war opened. To a "Standard" correspondent, he said:-'-'The 'position' is nowadays a trench, in nine cases out of ten, and must generally be taken at night. This does not always mean in the dark. At - three villages got alight, and all the thatches and hayricks ablazo cast a red and smoky light. Add to this sev eral searchlights, showers of illuminat ing bombs, and the Germans with 'flares' fixed to thoir bayonets-which were more usoful to us than to them. You cannot form an idea of what an extraordinary scono it all made-a re gular inferno of Dante spread over two or three miles. Tho lighting went on all night in this theatrical stage set ting.
