III. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
III. "My own darling Nance, I " "Stop a bit," interrupted Ferrers, shrewdly, "I'm not so sure that her name is Nance and, anyway, that's a sight too familiar an' hopeful to please a girl of her spi/'t. "What's the name she were chris--eu.?d in? You can't he too partic'lar when you're a-dealing with magic, and what's a charm 'cept a bit of black art?" "There's something in that," re plied Brace, slowly nibbling at I lie end of the penholder. "But I'm ■blessed if I Know what she was sprin kled under." "Here'B Tom Wood; he's pretty cute about gals," said Ferrers. "We'll ask him." And 'before Brace could enter a protest, Wood was hailed and seat ed at the table, making the (unwel come) third. Brace, who was the soul of selfish ness, had no further use for Wood, since he was taken up so much with Ferrers, so he had dropped him like a hot potato, not feeling inclined to stand drinks for two thirsty, penni less friends at the same time. His friendship for Ferrers was fev erishly hot, and s...
MELBOURNE LETTER. THE TIRED FEELING. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
"MELBOURNE LETTER. [iJY OUIl Hl'CGIAL GOBUESPOtfDENT.l The Tired Feeli.vo. •" The strain of ehnui " debate" and the mnke-believo of Parliamentary " work" • is felt by Federal legislature; and they have developed the "tired feeling." They would reduco the days of sitting from four to throe; and the hours from night time to day-time. Upou that, both sides are in strictest accord : upon a'li other questions, national and political, they manifest the bittorust antagonism. It might be possible to accommodate theso very tired gontlemen, and to free Mr. Bruce Smith's " men of substance" from their sessional duties for^privato business and Caucus meetings — but only upon conditions that would serve tbo end of public fairness. The condition is that the salaries bo adjusted: instead of a fixed £600 a year, wo would suggest pay ment of so much per sitting. The sug gestion will doubtless bo received with a howl of indignation by ono soction; while another 6ectiou will just as likely bo prepared...
A Boomerang Rebuke. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
A Boomerang Rebuke. A certain careless student in a small college Buffered from obesity, and it appears that even college professors do not love a fat man. One day, after a particularly unsuccessful recitation in mathematics, the instructor said scornfully: "Well, Mr. Blank, you are better fed than taught." "That's right, Professor," said the youth, subsiding heavily into his chair, "you teach me—I feed myself." Woman is an angel who seldom ap preciates a Wan who has not a bit ol ,tlie devil in hto.
II. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
"Why, Brace, don't you know an old messmate o' yourn what 'as sailed the wintry sea with you many a time an' oft?" cried a man of a very nautical cut, whom both Brace and Wood had, apparently, purposely avoided recog nising. "Well, now you speak, I do seem . to 'ave seen you before, Jim Ferrers," replied Brace, in a surly tone. "I sup I pose you stopped me on purpose to give me back them two pounds you borrowed last voyage we 'ad together, or, maybe, the thirty shillings you owed afore then?" "Maybe I did, an' maybe I didn't," replied Ferrers, in a non-committal tone; "anyways, you're sure of your money one of these days." "I'd feel a sight surer if I 'ad it in my pocket now." Ferrers glanced o-.rr Ms sfcoi'.der and jerked his thumb, mysteriously, in the direction of Jack and Nancy, who had passed just, at the very -mo-, 'n-.ent he hailed the other two. "See tliern two young hearts that beat as one," said Ferrers. "Well, on the day they are married I come Into i little fortune—ten g...
MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
MINING INTELLIGgNQE.. During the halt year ended 31at March,, the Argo Dredging Go.,. Saudy Creek, treated six acres of ground, equal to. 170.300 cubio yards, for 455jpz., value. £167,5—an average return of 5.3614. per cubio yard. The total cost was 2.662d. per cubio yard. The percentages earned for the half-year under the Brisais Co.'s, * tribute agreement amount to £210.

Taking Him Down. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
Yaking HIm Down. To a certain Southern town, on le gal business, came.a most pompous young lawyer, who, notwithstanding his name was 'McNaught, had an ex cellent opinion of himself. He found it necessary to talk with Squire Gafi ner, an unpolished justice, who had no good opinion o£ anything, a^Le'sv pecially of anyone wlio had s^boo'q opinion of himself. The squire had never heard of his visitor till he call ed, and he was a poor hand at re membering names, but he was an ex pert in human measurements. The young lawyer proceeded promptly to say what he had to say, the squire listening, tout 'watching. Presently he thought it was time for him to say something. "Hold on, Mr. McCipher," he began. "My name is McNaught," the lawyer stiffly corrected him. "Excuse me, excuse me," apologised the squire, and finished his remarks. It was not long before the squire again felt called upon to speak. "Well, now, Mr. McZero ," he started in. "I said my name was McNaught," the lawyer interrupted sh...

THE CHARM. I. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
THE CHARM. By Maud Douglas. "Can't think what the women is a coming to nowadays," said Jim Brace, with an air of moody disgust; "time was when they knew a good chance when it come in their way, an' was, what a young captain as I once sailed under, who 'ad a strong turn of the poet in 'im, used to say, 'grate ful for a good man's love,' but now— lor! They're that saucy, an' that flighty, that they'd flirt with any think!" "Meaning Nancy O'Brien," put in Tom Wood, meaningly; "well, they're all alike, are the lasses, an' she's a partic'ler neat little pai'ty, is Nancy; it's hardly to bo 'wondered at that she thinks a lot of herself, an' doesn't jump into a man's arms." "Well, in course, If she wasn't something a bit out of the common I shouldn't be wanting to tthrow my self away upon her, should I?" said Brace, in a tone denoting more than a touch of indignation. "What could she be wanting more than she'd get in me? Here I am, in the very prime 0 'life, never been out of a ship, 'cept ...
A Modern Solomon. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
A Modern Solomon. Another good story ia told of Mene 11k, by which it would appear he had studied the judicial methods of King Solomon. Two Abyssinians were gathering fruit, one up a tree shaking the branch es, and the other below collecting the fruit as it fell. A branch snapped sud denly, and the man up the tree slipped and fell. He lanaed on his companion on the ground, breaking the unfortun ate man's neck, but himself escaping .without fatal inuries. The family of the dead man demand ed blood-money, and when the acciden tal murderer replied that he had no money they demanded his life. This the man declined to part with, and the case went before the judges, finally working its way up to the supreme tri bunal of Menelik himself. The olaimants by this time refused to accept blood money even if offered, and demanded their ful right of a life for a life. "Very well," said Menelik in deliver ing judgment, "you have undoubtedly the right to claim this man's life, but > the law says ...
SIZE OF SHEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
SIZE OF SHEAF. There can be no set size for a sheaf, js the size must be regulated accord ing to conditions. For instance, in wet districts, or where the crops are late in^ maturing, the small sheaf is the safer, as the sun and wind are better able to penetrate through the sheaf, and so minimise the risk of sprouting or moulding about the band. Again, by making the sheaves on the small size, stacking can be commenc ed a day or two sooner. On the oth er hand, however, the large-sized sheaves have their advantages. First, it is more economical on twine; sec ondly, much time is saved in stock ing and stacking; thirdly, a lair-sized sheaf will stand up against winds in the stook better than the small size.

FOB THE FARMER. THE. ROTARY DISC PLOUGH. The rotary disc- plough possesses the following advantages over the mould-board implements: — 1. Owing to the construction and movement o£ the discs the draught is greatly reduced, and the capacity of the implements considerably increas ed. 2. Their great power in breaking up hard land makes it possible to com mence the ploughing o£ stubble hum much earlier than is the case when mould hoards are used, thus increas ing the capacity of the soil to re ceive and retain' moisture at a season when, under ordinary conditions, sat isfactory mould board work is im practicable. 3. The work is more cheaply done. The discs are so placed that one disc forces the broken soil, sideways againBt the next one, pulverising it and performing the operation of pack ing, thereby improving the seed bed and preventing the escaped moisture to a greater extent than is possible in the more open work of other ploughs. Preference should be given to implements that have th...
FARMING ON BUSINESS LINES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
FARMING ON BUSINESS LINES. [ It is quite impossible in these days of keen competition, and with the high prices ruling for land, cattle, la bor, and all commercial commodities, to ignore the fact that if the dairy farmer is to make the most "of his labors, he must be in the position of knowing, with some degree of cer tainty, just wl>at branch of his busi ness is, from year to year, the most profitable. IIow can disaster be avert ed it he goes on year after year utter ly ignorant, not only of how much lie has. made, or is making, from his dairy or other branches of his busi ness, but what is far worse, often not possessing a knowledge as to whether he is making money or losing it. That hundreds of farmers do not find them selves involved in serious financial, difficulties is largely due to the pro ductiveness of the land and a tribute tu their own hard-working industry. If the commercial man, faced on all sides with keen competition, carried on his business in the haphazard way t...
SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
SPORTING NOTES>. Th& Bright paper reports:—There ia an old phrase used in sporting circles, that it is not wise.to back anything that can talk. This was exemplified at the. Bright sports on Easter Monday, when, live contestants faced the starter in. one. eyout. EjU'ly in the race it wus plainly seen that two of the number were hope lessly out of it, and that the finish, would be fought out by the remaining throe. The " struggle" up the. straight was dos perate iu the extreme, the leader now and' again glancing roui'd at his opponents to. see how they were progressing. At the, tape he threw up his hands and. then, roiled over from. " exhaustion," to the. accompaniment of ironical cheers from, the spectators. The stewards, who had viewed the race, immediately met, and, after a little discussion declared the event " off." The posting of the verdict was. louilly applauded by the spectators.

EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 30 April 1914
EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. Every mail must study his own soil | and crop conditions. Experiment sta tions may practise from now until the end of time, and still not be able to answer the question for the individual . farmer. Principles can be established, the needs of different crops can be learned, the composition of fertilisers can be determined, chemical and phy sical analyses may show wherein soils differ; but when it comes to the question of the profitable use of fertil isers, each farm, each paddock must answer for itself. That is, careful, intelligent and accurate experiments must be carried on by every farmer, gardener, and orchaitfist who wishes to settle this point. In^all fertiliser experimental work it is important that tlie land used be as uniform in soil | condition and previous manuring and cropping as can be procured. The size of plots may vary according to the nature of the crop from two square rods to one-tenth to one-third of an acre, or larger if desired. The ...
