WOOLAMAI. In the presence ot a large number of parents and juniors who assisted plant ing trees the first Arbor Day Was suc cessfully carried out at the Woolamai State school on Friday. The school committee with wise forethought had prepared and fenced off the ground some time previously, and everything was in readiness for planting. Many of the children supplied fancy trees, which added to those forwarded by the department, gave an abundance to choose from. As well as planting along the fence, the committee are having a large piece of ground ploughed for planting with special shrubs, and in the near future will transform the Bchool ground area into a very pictur esque place. After the tree planting, refreshments prepared by the parents, were served in the school and proved most acceptible. A concert programme was thoroughly enjoyed, addresses were given by Cr Cr. Steenholdt, J.P., and Messrs McGrath and Harley. Very creditable pssays on Arbor Day by the children ^vere reafl by the ...

State Parliamentary Recruiting Campaign. MEN ARE URGENTLY NEEDED. ARTICLE NO. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 July 1915
State Parliamentary Recruiting Campaign. MEN ARE URGENTLY NEEDED. (By R. J. M.). ARTICLE NO. 2. " Let there not be a man or woman among: us who would not be able to say ' I was not idle ; I took such part as I could in the gifatest task which, in all the stoiied annuls of our country, has ever fallen to the lot of Great Britain to achieve.' " Thus Mr Asquith, Prime Minister of Great Briiain, recently appealed to the British people " to take an active part in the defence of their country and in the fortunes of the arms abroad." Such a stirring appeal should not go unheard in Australia. We have ar rived at the time when the total strength of our great country should be utilised to the full. There are thous ands of versatile young men in Aus tralia, and particularly in Victoria, who have so far not offered their services even in the most nominal way to help their country. We are living in a dangerous time. Ouv nation is threat ened by the greatest organised military country the world h...
The one "Live" Cream Separator. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 July 1915
one "Live" Cream Separator. It is: known and conceded by anyone who knows anything about Cream Sep arators that the "Alfa-Laval" is the pioneer, the one that blazed the way, the one that has always led the pro cession, the one that is, and always has been recognised as the standard by agricultura] colleges, butter factories, creameries, and dairymen the world over, and that each succeeding year BIIOV.-s a greater percentage oF separa tors tt bo "Alfa-Lavals." . All of these people could not have been fooled all these years with an inferior article. The superiority of the "Alfa-Lavn!" and the estimation in which it is held can b accounted for in various ways. To begin with, the "Alfa-Liival" Separ ator Company has concentrated its ef forts to the building of n Cream Separa tor and nothing eke. It is left to other concerns the building of engines, reapers and binders, hay rakes, ploughs, harrows, etc., etc. It is the one sep arator concern 'that appreciates the importance of specialis...

JET HUNTER'S FOSTER SON. (BY IRWIN OLAKKE.) OHAPTJflK \ 11. (Coiltinned.) Perhaps one reason for Obadiah's re markable personal influence over othors iv,.'a that often weightily as he spoke, lie was a reticent man, who would brook neither jest nor questioning. That he had once been a teacher in a .school, and (subsequently an engineer in a great silver mine in South Amer ica was known. He was therefore, su perior in education and experience to thee whom he led. but not so superior as t&lt;? be cut oil' by a gulf of taste rath er than knowledge Iroin the untutored be'-n^s around him.

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 July 1915
MELBOURNE LETTER (From Our Correspondent). The recruiting week campaign has brought out the best effort that has yot been shown in the National cause. Immediately the lend was given, and the^e was some indication of what was wanted, scores of able energetic men jumped into the work of organisation. Many of them left their private busi ness affairs to go along as best they migtr.; and devoted driving force and ability to the task of making a suc cess of the concerted action, asked for by the .State Parliamentary Recruiting Co/umittee, Some suburbs have inado a hotter response than others. It de pended upon the public men and chiefly the municipal councillors. It was tc the latter that the work was primarily delegated and by the mea sure oi results from recruiting week they .should'be judged. The readiness of the average citi zen to respond to the call of the May ors and councillors for assistance in carying out the recruiting week cam paign is an indication of tho anxiety of practica...
FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 July 1915
(By "Ainbiosine.") ! AY inter over, wo have to look forward to the season (if thinner materials, and already there is talk of a shortage in coti jn goods, but at present the chief limitation .so iar a* London is concern ed i-s not in fabrics so much as in colors. But whatever shortage there may bo ive are promised a choice of many beau tiftil silk^. The English manufactur ers have risen to the occasion, and have provided many charming novel ties in shot taffetas, as well as in the bold, vivid stripes that have commended themselves so widely. Crepe de chine will come out in any quantity, as this has long since been a home product. Many choice brocades too are also un questionably English. Limited quan tities of fancy silks are still coming through from Lyons. Silk ought to be \ery plentiful next season. ? but whether it will be within the reach of moderate purses it is impossible to saj'. In lace, we will not see one inch ot the Plauen lace which formerly met tJie demands of those of...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 July 1915
(fcy "Rusticuo.") The Annual Farmers' Convention is a gooi thing, even if no particular re sults accrue,, As has been observed in this column in former years, it is 0110 tinny to adopt resolutions affirm ing me desirability of having certain Uiiu.j,n done, but it is another matter altogether to get them done. Still the focussing of opinion iias its effect, it only in a psychological way.. And above all tilings any movement or organisa tion tnat tends to bring those engaged in rural pursuits into combination b.ist ije bailed with acclamation. Tho lack oi cohesion among the men on the land leads to their being exploited un iiK-rcihilly. and suffering disadvantages as compared with those in other call, ings. which lend themselves more readily to close organisation. Among the resolutions affirmed at the convention at Wangaratta last weelc, which it would be well to f ee passed be yond the mere affirmation stage, were those referring to the bulk handling o wheat. These were: 'That this c...

CONSERVATION OF FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 July 1915
GQfcSERVATUm 01- FODDER. Neatly every Mariner ndw is thinking or talking along the lines of focldor con servation. And a good - thing- too. At a rcccnt meeting of the Kopp:o brancu of the Agricultural Bureau, Mr G-^13. Gardner gave some uselul advice on the subject. Ho pointed out that as jnuch of the rain fell ivhen it was of no direct benefit to the cereal crops, summer cnops ccukl olten bo cultiva ted successfully. Although lucerne was geuei ally understood to. require ir rigation, it' could be grown on selected spots 'where artificial watering was i.m pcssible. One sere or such lucerne alter a summer rain was equal to 20 acres of dry grass for feeding purposes, and in the early autumn it would give a lot of feed befpro the ordinary grasses were available. He had fed down a pLt of kale consistently . for three years, and although it had been overstocked and eaten to the ground, it still provided valuable feed. The dry seasons taugiifc them to - conserve cocky chaff and straw. . H...
IMPORTED FODDER AND ANIMAL DISEASES. DANGER OF INTRODUCTION [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 July 1915
IMPORTED FODDER AND AhiftlAL DISEASES. DANGER OF INTRODUGlIOiS' I The wholesale imp-nation of gram and l'uddor from other parts oi the world this year has thrown open tnc door ;o the introduction into Austra lia of all sorts or field pests and ani mal diseases, and it will be surprising u as the result of the action, which un fortunately has been rendered neces sary tj meet, the exigencies of the situ ation caused by drought, some of the North and South America are not ;n iroduced into the fields of Australia. Thw. e is a similar risk of terrible dis eases being brought here through the ;iiedii:m of the - iodder, which is being imported because it is a-widely recog nised" iV.et that the virus of such a scourge as loot and mouth disease, ior example may contaminate fodder ami by this means be spread from one coun try to another. . Large quantities oi fodder are being brought to Australia, and the Federal quarantine authorities cannot be expected to examine every ounce ..f it to see t...
KEEPING COWS WARM. INCREASES MILK PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 July 1915
KEEPING COWS WARM. INCREASES MJLK PRODUCTION. ! keeping cows warm not only saves fCK.der; but also' the fodder -consumed goes further in the wnjy.of increasing milk production., t is uqw thoroughly demonstrated that-, while improving the pastures and inci easing the fodder pro ducing capacity "of the soil'are among the ?ending.objects to be aimed at, yet the saving of grass and fodder, with, at the same time, an increase of remunera tive results by means of promoting and conserving warmth, is unquestionably of cai-al importance. Science teaches that warmth in the animal economy is produced and maintained at the . ex pensa of J'ood consumption. Yet, all the same, it requires the demonstra tion" of practical experience to ascer I tain how large is the..waste in propor tion to the-food consumed that takes place 111 this' direction. in providing this warmili, various pieans are resort ed to, including tree plantations; the housing and feeding of stock under cover, ai d the rugging of co...
THE FOOTSTEPS OF A DOG [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 July 1915
FOOTSTEPS OF A DOG . l&lt;'or the information of those yho are in (lie habit- of sending a dog for their cows, I wish to report a little ex perience which-1 have had along -this line. I tested the milk from a cow alter she was brought up by u stable dog. the dog in turn, being in charge of a .'.mall boy. She was considerably excited and quite warm. Her miik tested 2.3. The next morning her test was -1.1, and a week later, when she was brought in l\v a man, and per fectly cool, her milk tested 6.2 Now you can figure out whether or not it pays to use a dog around the dairy herd. I should state that the pas ture and teed were exactly the.same in each instance."
