A FARMER'S CREED. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
A FARMER'S CREED. For this day I will do my 'best to do everything just right; to be good and kind to every living thing I have any thing to do with; to 'be thankful that I live in such a good world; to make I that world a little bit better; to think i some new thought; to read a page or | two from some good book; to look up from my work long enough to see what my neighbor is doing so well; to j strike some blow for the right; to get a little nearer to the heart of my wife 'and children; and to ask God to help me make to-morrow a better day, a much better day, than this has been.
LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
LADIES' LETTER. By "Irene," in Melbourne. It is really astonishing how quickly yrQ have the new season's fashious here, and, in a way, it must be confess ed, it is rather a pity, for it means we are adopting modes designed for Burn er fabrics while we are still in win der and wearing cloth and heavy ivtrelght materials. But as soon as in dications of the advance styles arrive, people will nave them, so, in conse quence, they are shown by our leading establishments. For instance, already the llat Watteau and Dolly Varden *lnd of hats, which have been intro duced in Paris for spring, are being Shown here. They are very pictur esque and distinctly'becoming, but not nearly so cosy and comfortable as the close-fitting ones we have been wear ing for a long time. However, per haps it is for the best, as the majority of women have bcon complaining bit terly of trouble with their hair and of its falling out excessively, and they blame it in a great measure to the close, tight-fitting hats wh...
POULTRY. WHAT IS A PULLET? [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
PO ULTR Y. WHAT IS A PULLET? There seems to be a liazy notion, among some farmers as to the exact meaning ol' the terms used to describe young and old stock. A pullet, strictly speaking, is a female under one year old. But in Australia we call a fowl a pullet until she has completed tier lirst year's laying. Similarly, wo call a male bird cockerel until he has at least entered well upon his lirst year in the breeding pen. It is not ad visable to breed from birds younger than one year.
THE SHAPING OF OUR LIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
THE SHAPING OF OUR LIVES. There is nothing more certain than that we grow like what we constantly live with, look upon and copy. Lives are raised or lowered by the great ness or littleness of ideals. Actions show the selfishness or unselfishness of the heart." Words tell the trend of the mind-and the atmosphere of a life reveals with unfailing accuracy the nature and aspirations of the soul Every day and every hour leaves its mark on the character, and sees an angle rubbed smoother-a virtue pol ished into greater beauty-or dis closes the soul trying to hide its de formity under the mists of selfish ness, carelessness or ignorance. A great privilege is that which wje possess of "shaping our lives," anil one upon which to spend earnest thought.
THE BREEDING PENS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
THE BREEDING PENS. For tiie man who goeB in solely for eggs, a forcing system of feeding ia all right, but it is bound to be detri mental to oreeding stock, and this iB why pullets intended for breeding purposes should not be given big quantities of nourishing soft food. I£ they are, it is almost certain that many of the eggs produced will be in fertile; at least some of them will be weakly fertilised, and the chances of strong, robust chickens greatly re duced. It is not the quantity of egga, but it is the quality of them from a breeding standpoint that those on. the lookout for early chickens must study. It is ten times more important to them to get fifty eggs likely to hatch out strong chickens than one hundred eggs that are almost worthless from a hatching standpoint.
DEVELOPMENT OF PULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
DEVELOPMENT OF PULLETS.. Those who are raising pullets for laying should note the food that Is best lor making the cockerels fit for market, and chat which is best for de velopment of the laying pullets. The growing pullets should be fed entirely with a view to quick developments of the frame and egg-producing organs;: therefore, it stands to reason that the food which is best for the laying hen is right for pullets. There is nothing better for growth than milk, bran, a little cooked meat given constantly, and for the evening meal sound oats and wheat. Food should never be given in excess, for not only ia the food wasted, but the digestive organs of the birds become weakened. Maize should be sparingly fed, especially during the summer months, as it has the tendency to cause internal fat, which is one of tue greatest draw backs (o egg-producing.

GUARDING STATE SECRETS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
GUARDING STATE SECRETS. Every Foreign Office in Europe acts on the theory that an army of spies is constantly on the alert to steal ite secrets, and infinity precautions are taken to baffle their efforts. Very shortly after the first use of hlottlng-paper it was discovered that it was quite possible to cause blotting-pads to give up jealously* guarded secrets by simply holding It in front of a mirror. Long after all the commercial world had forgotten the existence of such a thing, the British Foreign Office u&ed a sand* shaker to dry its important written documents. Then specially manufactured ink iblotting-paper was .used,-bat this was not found to be absolutely ipy-proof, and a return to the Baud-shaker -was contemplated, when someone pugges.t* ed the simple expedient of a email ah* sorbent roller. These rollers have since been used for drying diplomatic documents. When such a roller has been run up and down a document once or twice, the cleverest epy in the -world ,1s at ...
LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
LORD 3TRATHC0NA AND THE "WHITE WA8H." -3 From the time he emigrated to Can ado, at the age of eighteen, until he was forty-eight, the late Lord Strath? cona spent all his time at various posts of the Hudson Bay Company, newly located on the Labrador. In all those thirty years among the northern Indians and the. Eskimos, Donald Smith, as he then -was, held h'mself strictly to the niceties of life; so that when, as a man of middle age, he returned to civilised life and the highest offlce in the gift of the Hud son Bay Company, there were no rough edges of either speech or man ner to »be overcome. Nothing shows this better than a story told on the Labrador while, he was governor of the company. It is a rule of the Hudson Bay Company that no woman shall &lt;be allowed pass age on its boats. One day, as a steam er of the company neared one of the northernmost ports, a Btring of white garments was seen stretched across deck. The watchers were amazed; for to them the waBh-line sugg...
A Witty Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
A Witty Woman. Some stories told about Mrs. Wel don, the celebrated "Modern Portia," who recently passed' away, Indicate what a clever woman she was. She once set the court laughing ow ing to her replies to counsel. "You are Mrs. Georglana Weldon?" she was asked. "No, I am not!" came the prompt reply. "But surely you are the wife of Mr. Weldon?" "Yes, I am." Finally she enlightened the barris ter, who had come near to losing his temper, that her name was Georgina, not Georglana. . "Why couldn't you have said that at first?" he thundered. "Because, she answered, in her sweetest accents, "you never asked me!" On another occasion, in the Court of Appeal, she urged' as one of the grounds of her complaint that the judge who had given the decision against her was too o'd to understand the case. The chief Judge reminded her that the last time she was there she complained that her case had been tried by a "hit of a hoy" who could not do her justice. - ''What age do you want a judge to be?" ...
DOWNRIGHT HONESTY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
DOWNRIGHT HONESTY. "Downright honesty Is hard to find " exclaimed a pessimistic gentleman. A well-known literary lady replied, I hope not. When you find it where you expected to, it attracts no notice. It is a matter of course; and some times you find it when you are not looking for it. , "Several years ago my husband and 1 were hunting for colonial landmarks in one of the oldest quarters of New York City, when we were attracted by a"?re*ty dl8play °* ^nBerie and small silk goods in the window of a little ,haberdashery shop. We stopped to admire, and finally went in. The shop keepers were foreigners, a man and nis wife.

ART CRITICISM. Complimentary and Otherwise. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
I i mi «?» ART CRITICISM; Complimentary and Otherwise. Rossetti, who was much given to procrastination, was constantly tell ing Whistler of an idea he had for a picture; tout each time Whistler in quired as to the progress of the idea Rossetti would evade the issue, not having done a stroke of work in the direction indicated, and would instead begin to talk of his literary ventures. Finally, one day when Whistler mis chievously put the usual question: "And how iB the picture coming on?" Rossetti, ignoring, the question, said: "Jimmy, I've a neat little sonnet here I'd like to read you." Jimmy sighed and submitted. At the next meeting between the friends Rossetti told Whistler that he had not yet finished the picture, but that he had a frame for it. Whistler inspected the frame, a fine piece of Florentine work, but said nothing. Eventually the procras tinating Rossetti actually did com plete the picture of which he had talk ed so much, and it was in due course triumphantly exhibited ...
Meteorological Humor. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
Meteorological Humor. An Irish Jarvey was driving an Eng lish visitor on a ibltterly cold day through the wilds of ?onnemara. They became very sociable on the /way, and the native. In a burst of confidence, pointed out a shebeen .where the "foest potheen In the country" might be obtained. The Englishman, only too glad of an opportunity of warm ing himself, offered refreshment, and the offer was readily accepted. ~'TIs a very cold day for these parts, Pat," remarked the tourist. . "'TIs, yer honor!" replied Pat. He raised his glass, and the contents speedily vanished. "And there's truth in the old sayin'," he added, smacking his lips suggestively, " 'Wan swallow niver made a summer'!" Visitor: I suppose you are snaxn* ma's darling? Little. Girl: No; I am my mamma's moving picture. Visitor: Tour mamma's moving pic ture? Little Girl: Tee; ehe Is always tell ing me that I should be seen and not heardl
CHINESE INGENUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
CHINESE INGENUITY. An Interesting instance of harness ing Nature to assist in the work of man and machinery in building a bridge is given by the Rev. J. McGow an in his book "Side Lights on, Chi nese Life." The structure to which he refers was built two hundred years ago, and the engineers had many ser ious difficulties to overcome: "This old stone bridge consists of twenty-five spans, the widest of which measures sixty-five feet. The river is very rapid, and by placing the piers so far apart less surface is offered to the force of the waters. "The river is liable to very sudden and powerful rises.- This feature ne cessitated that the roadway of the bridge be built of enormously heavy stones, to resist the impetus of the flood without being lifted from their places. The great slabs are seventy feet long, six thick, and four wide. How did the engineers of two centur ies ago manage such a tremendous task? "The stone was quarried from the hills which rise directly from the river-banks....

Perkins, drawing attention i to the unsatisfactory condition of the fence between Mr Oman's property and : the pound paddock at J,ignore. Five Lincoln rams were impounded a few weeks ago, and as the fence would not keep them in, he had to remove them to a small enclosure at the pound yards, ] where they had to be hand-fed. Cr Oman said the fence was a menace to him, as the rams got among his sheep. He was prepared to pay half the cost of netting. The engineer was instructed to carry out the work under this con dition.

Make Your District Known [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
Me Your District Known! I Concerning some parts of the district news comes but seldom. This is not entirely our fault ; we have no miracu lous power of knowing what is happen ing at all the places within our area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease ? If no one else is doing it for your district, will you try on these lines ? Send accounts of public and social events in your township and neighbour hood, such as weddings, deaths, acci dents, concerts, matters touching dis trict industries, etc. Write the names of persons very distinctly. Dont bother about grammar or spell ing ; it's the editor's work to look after those trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. Write only on one side of the paper. Write your name and address on some corner-not for publication, but to prove good faith. Give information; but let criticism alone.
Lismore Horticultural Society. ANNUAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914
Lismore Horticultural Society. ANNUAL MEETING. There was a very fair attendance at the above society's annual meeting held at the Mechanics' Hall on Monday night, ladies to their credit being in the maiority. The report was prepared by the presi dent (Dr Paton), and stated that from the first meeting, held on July 4, 1913, great interest was taken in the society, which was fortunate in having a strong committee and an enthusiastic public behind it. The schedule contained 139 classes, for which there were 334 en tries. The membership was 32, which, at the low subscription of 2/6, should be considerably augmented this year. The sum of £13/15/6 was received in cash, as well as donations in kind, and £18/17/6 was allotted in prize money. The so ciety owes a lot to the judges who came to its help and gave much useful infor mation regarding staging and general management. Especially was this the case in regard to the floral section, in which Mr Errey gave the benefit of his experience, ga...
