SEX DETERMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 30 October 1915
SEX DETERMINATION. For many years a scientific breeder of stock in England has been inves tigating the question of the determin ation of sex. He now considers that in most stock he can prophesy with considerable certainty the sex of the •'pring; and his views are to be ''ished in a small pamphlet called 1 Production of Sex at Will in ials." His secret appears to lie close and particular study of the ure immediate ancestors of the par ents. He thus finds what is called a male or a female "preponderancy," and by judging the degree of this preponderancy in the father and mother the probability of the off spring's sex can be accurately f6re told.

Gorong pad dock, created considerable interest throughout the whole district, and much speculation was rife as to the probability of it finding .a new owner and what the final "nod" to the auc tioneer would -cost tlhe purchaser. The land was supposed to be the best on thile estate, and being in a nice situation, it was felt that com- - petition would be very anlimated. The block, which contains 642 acres, was subdivided in 10 lots, and the piece nearest Ballan township, con taining 18 acres, was submitted first. This was passed in at £14/10/ per acre. Lot· 5, containing 64 acres,: was also passed in at~ £12/10/. The eighth block, containing 513 acres, was then offered; and passed in at £13/2/6. Subsequently, Mr. Thomas Lidgett, of Greendale, was announced as the purchaser, but the 'price was not made public.
