THE FARM. THE INCOME-BEARING VALUE OF A SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 10 July 1914
THE THE BNCdMB-BHARING VALUE OF A SHEEP. To ascertain what a sheep will re turn annuallj to a farmer is not an easy matter, for there are so many considerations involved : The particu lar breed of cheep used according to th8 class of country and climate; the price of wool and of mutton ; proximity to market, etc. We have all kinds of climate here. Open and -well sheltered country with a mild climate will show a high lambing Percentage, bushfelled farms and rough runs with a severer climate will return a les sened and cheaper type of wool in the former case, and a smaller lambing percentage in both cases. In some provinces, again, quite a number of back-country graziers make a special ity of rearing, store animals for sale to the sheep fattening farmer of the richer land more adjacent to market. On the top of this there are good and | bad seasons, which may easily aSect the returns. There may be said to be five kinds of sheep farming carried on in New Zealand : I (1). The mixed farme...

Shipyard Secrets. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 10 July 1914
Shipyard Secrets. A Every shipyard that builds for the Navy must take great precautions that none of the secrets entrusted to its care shall leak out. Detectives watch all visitors and keep the workmen . under observation also. Plain-clothes officers guard every entrance, and nobody is allowed ,to bring, in even a small parcel un less it is first examined, for fear that it may conceal a camera. At one of the big- construction yards one. man in every two dozen is thoroughly searched from head to foot each night on leaving. All the draughtsmen engaged on the draw ings of a new warship are sworn to secrecy, and tho plans are in variably kept under^ lock and key when not in use. . - These precautions have brought many suspicious circumstances ' to light. One night when a nc^&lt; cruiser was about to undergo her trials, two men crept abQard as she lay at anchor. They wero captured' and handed over to the police. Shortly afterwards, on the day of the trial, the chief engineer thou...

Trade Terms that Tease. SOME QUEER TITLES THAT PUZZLE THE BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 10 July 1914
Trade Terms that Tease. * SOME QUEER TITLES THAT PUZZLE THE BENCH. "What do you mean by a yard of apology ?" recently asked a metro politan magistrate of a young dra iper's assistant, who had used the I phrase in giving evidence in a shop lifting case. | When it was explained to his wor ship that a yard of apology was a common term in the drapery trade for a yard of ribbon, there were broad smiles in court. The term arises from customers who have | given a good deal of trouble buy | ing a yard of ribbon as an -excuse for being in the shop at all. It is only one of many descriptions used in various trades. Cheap fur muffs, for example, are known as "bunny-hugs," through a suspicion that the "fur"- originally adorned the back of a rabbit. Col lars are "neck-armour," umbrellas are always "mushes," and veils are "fake-foils." Because it often "con ceals dilapidated furniture, chintz lis commonly known as "poverty." In the boot trade big, flat-soled, l shooting-boots are termed " roller ...

V By Hedley Richards, Author of "The Mine Master's Heir," "Time, t.Iie Avenger," etc., etc. SYNOPSIS OF PREVIOUS PARTS. 1 The story opens in Australia, where Joshua Wedmore, an unsuccessful miner, is tramping along in search of fresh fields. Entering a hut he dis covers a man on a rude bed, ill with the fever. 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. These he appropriates, 1 as he considers the fever-stricken one has only a few hours to live. Wed more goes on his way, finally reach ing- Melbourne, where he books a pas sage for England in the Fairy Queen. The vessel is wrecked, Wedmore and an elderly man named Rupert Heth eringto'n, of Wynthshay, Hall, being the only survivors.

THE PLOUGH AND THE HARROW [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 10 July 1914
THE PLOUGH AND THE HARROW Charles Lamb and a friend were once discussing the merits of the English public schools. The friend was very strongly in favour of them. "All our best men," he said, "were at public schools. Look at our poets. There's Byron, he was a H arrow boy '' "Yes," interrupted Lamb; " arid there's Burns-he was a plough boy." Young Brooks is relieved of one trouble, anyhow." "What's that ?" "lie won't have to lie about his salary, to the girl he's going to marry. He works for her father."
