TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 29 January 1915
TURF TOPICS. (By " tlemiugton.") Recent sales of horses at what miglht be called full value should be cheering to breeders sending yearlings into tlhe autumn sales. As previously remarked there would still seem to be money for a good article in horseflesh. Possibly, in times like the present, with some uncertainty about the future, owners may think twice before bidding high for yearlings which cannot, it best, show any return for the outlay for at least six months. The young emes are sold in March and cannot race in Victoria until October. In ordinary circumstances, buyers do not mind waiting that long in the hope of being rewarded in the end, but in these days money is money, aind there fore investments whlich are s;low to mature, or may not mature at all, are scarcely in favor. Still the outlook for the breedm' might bie a great deal worse He cannot of course, expect the prices of prospel;ous years to ibe maintained this autumn, but there alre indications, that the yearling market...
CLEARING BRACKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 29 January 1915
CLEARING BRACKEN. How to get rid of biracken tlrn is a question that a correspondent in an Australian lpaperi replies to Iby satinlu: "Cutting the bracken is of little use. Cutting seems to be pruning them to promote their lgrowtlh. The same with burning. T'ho more they are burnt, the quicker and thicker they grow. We find that bruising is the offective systiem with a hard roller nmade by tihe local blacksmith. encircledtl spirally" with angle iron. Th'le process is simply to keep passing this roller. loaded to sufficient weight, over tile bralckens, as often as they ."show new 'rowth and cventually this kills them r'ight out.'' iNot cttting tlhemI in the height of spring, and only once in the year,' another correspondent writes "may be usless; but cut theni 20 times a year' if they need cutting that often; i tact cut them as o.ften as you caii get I hit at thel, with the fern hook, so that the sun can shine fair on the grass to sweeten it, and the cattle will help to, keep thel dtl...
HUMANE GERMANS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 29 January 1915
HUMANE GERMANS. A private of the Black Watch, now in hospital in Newcastle, says: On the Aisne I was lying for hours wounded. A German cameo along and bound up my wound under heavy fire. When hIe had nmade ime shipshape- he was going to clear off, but a stray Ibul let caught him, and he fell dead beside me. After Sossons (says Corporal Hous ton, of the Seaforths), I was lying on the field badly wounded. Near by was a young fellow of the Northampton shirc Regiment. Standing over him was a German infantryman holding a water bottle to his lips and trying to soothe himn. The wounded man was delirious, and kept calling, "'Mother, are you there?" all the time. Thie German soeemed to understand, for he passed his hand gently over the feverish brow and caressed the poor lad as tenderly as any woman might lhave done. Death c:ame at last, and as the soul of the wounided man, passed to its last acocuntt I saw the German trying to hide his tears.

SUBMARINE'S MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 29 January 1915
SUBMARINE'S MISTAKE. A foreign submarine which hadl reachedl unobserved a point ill non-ter ritorial water., between Nakkehaved, Oil the norllrn c:oeast of the provilnle of Zealand aln~dl Kullen, in Sweden, dis charged two torpedoes at the Danish submarine Havnmandn, which was run ning 'on the surface at a speed of five knots. Neither torpedo struck her. The Ilavmanden was lyiing Danish colours at the time. A submarine, nationality unlknown, probably the same vessel, was seen tlhe sanle afternoon froml the lighthouse at Nakkehaved. Next morning a torpedo was washed ashore near the lighthouse, and blew up. These facts have been brought to the notice of the belligerent Powers, with a request that greater care should be taken in hJe evolutions of their sub marine craft in the future.
FEEDING COWS ACCORDING TO THEIR YIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 29 January 1915
FEEDING COWS ACCORDING TO THEIR YIELD. The recently introduced system of feeding dairy cows on a graduated scale according to the measure of their milk-yielding capabilities, originally ldevi~cd ill )einanrk, has boon receiv ing increasing attention on the part of progressive dairy farmers in this country. This method, which marks. the latest development in the practice of cow feeding, has much to recoiu nmeond it, for it is rational in piruciple, while easily carricd out in practice. Its special merit consists in the fact that it promotes economy in feeding by bringing the cost of the food ration into proper.proportion with the retourn obtainrd. It is based upon the prin cip!o that tile extent to whichll dairy cows are able to respond to a milk forcing diet by giving an enhanced yield, is dependent upon the degree of developmont attained b, their milk producing powers; that is to say, the nmore fully a cow's inherent milking capacity is developed, the molre cai her milk secretion b...

BELGIUM'S WAR DOGS. VALUE OF THEIR WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 29 January 1915
BELGIUM'S WAR DOGS. VALUE OF THEIR WORK. Convincing testimony to the useful ness of the dog has been supplied by the campaign in Belgium, our brave Allies, employing large numbers for pulling machbine guns and accompany ing sentries on nocturnal duties. Curi ously enough, this form of traction has only been adopted within the last year or two, and only fifteen months ago a Belgian Service paper wrote approv ingly of the experiment, pointing out that, in addition to being docile and competent, the animals had bccome great favourites among the soldiers. Among their advantages it was men tioned that they move silently, with out apparent effort, over the roughest country, and that they are practically invisible a few hundred yards away. With striking prescience, time writer ob ervedl that the military Great Danes would be called upon to play a particu larly efTeetive. and glorious part, little realising probably how soon his words woull bcconme true. According to cor respondents, the do...
ATROCITY STORIES NOT EXAGGERATED. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 29 January 1915
ATROCITY STORIES NOT EXAGGERATED. Mrs. Henry Clews, the wife of the well-known American banker, returned lately to Now York. She told the ship-news reporters that the stories of German atrocities in Belgium had not been exaggerated, andl she herself had personally investigated a number, with the result that she found that half had not been told. It was a war, she said, ruthless beyond description, and the Germans, so far from trying to conceal their malpractices, openly defended them on the ground that the life of a P'russian soldier in the present crisis was worth more than that of any civ-ilian, no matter whant age or sex. Mrs. Clews said there is a chance of people misunderstanding the alleged friendliness to Americans shown by the Germans. She said that she and others were openly insulted in the streets of Munich many a time. "It is not because the Germans love us so that they foregather at the railway stations and cry 'Hochi IIoch!' when a trainload of American refugees passes ...
WHAT THE ENGLISH CENSOR PASSED. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 29 January 1915
WHAT THE ENGLISH CENSOR PASSED. The "'Vorwarts," quotes a pri-ato letter received from a fireman of the Mhainz, who was .wounded in the naval battle near Heligoland, and is now a prisoner of war at Chatham. The letter is brief and bears the stamp of censor ship of the Assistant Provost lMarshal of Thaumes and Medway Defences: It says, among other things: "The reception and the treatment here is very good. The most vivid im agination is child's play in comparison with what we experienced on August 28th. My address: Prisoner of War (follow details). Rail and victory to the German armsl! Yours - The "Vorwnarts"' observes:- "The letter happily shows that the prisoners of war in English hands suffer no want. S. . The most remarkable thing, how ever, is that the English censor has passed the words. 'Hail and victory to the German arms.' The broadminded iess reflects all honour on the British authorities, and is calculated to streng then our confidence that, on the whole, the.prisoners in ...

- THE - MASTER PASSION. (By Lillion Ellerton). CHAPTER XXXVI. UNDER A MASK. Duval did not return home till the small hours, so went to bed without having seen his wife the whole day long. The next morning, as she did not appear, he sent for her, after waiting till after twelve to see if she would come without. Louis came back to say that mnadamle had gone out, and at the same timne laidi a letter on the table. "W\hat is that?"' eyeing it with a frown. "A note from M. Ic MIarquis; it ar rived just now." "Tell madame that 1 want to see her directly she comes in." Dural went on painting, but his heart was not in his work, and he could not get the lace on HIilda's dress to go to his satisfaction. After making several abortive efforts he light ed his chibouque, and throw himself full length on the sofa. He was an noyed at having had to part with the Iphigenia; but four thousand pounds was not a sum to be repccted, and Salo mons was a harmless little man, in whose possession it would soon...
