SELECTING THE MILK COW. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 2 April 1914

SELECTING THE MILK COW. Nearly every good milk cow pos sesses certain points of conformation which indicate her -milking qualities. The first important point is that she shall show a lean or bony form, with a sharp prominent backbone, ribs wide apart, sharp withers and incurv ing thighs; This indicates "dairy temperament," or, in other words, that she will turti her feed into milk instead of beef. Next she will have a long, deep bar rel, well sprung ribs, broad muzzle, and a strong jaw, theBe points indica1. ing capacity for consuming larger amounts of feed. Third, she will show a hardy con stitution. which is indicated by a large heart girth, a deep chest, large open nostrils, and a large wind pipe and lung capacity. I Fourth, a good dairy cow should j have an udder of good. size running well forward and hung up well be hind.

THE FOLLY OF FRETTING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 2 April 1914

THE FOLLY OF FRETTING. Don't worry yourself. It won't do any good, and you'll make yourself a nuisance to all-your friends. Worry wears more' than work,, and you begin to look miserable and can't eac more tlian one plateful at dinner, and you have pains in your head and can't sleep. Suppose you try and find the bright side, or try to make or do any thing but stare and talk about the blackness. Nobody ever did any good yet by what country folka call "sniff ing and stewing," which msans keep- J ing one's mind in worrinwnt and agi tation, and wondering whether this thing will come right or that thing fail. Go straight ahead in the even tenor of your way, and probably you will get along better than any amount of fretting would alio* j-ou. 'lake things quietly. Don't be too much up set or agitated about anything. Do you know that five minutes of high excitement takes as much out of a port-on as five hours' hard work, and ten minutes' deep, grief w:ll often make one downright ill. Strive ...

DAIRYING. COWS AND FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 2 April 1914

'DAIRYING. COVVS AND- FERTILITY. , On all pastures where cows and young stock - have been grazed for many years* without special- means being taken to- restore the -losn of phosphates; on all pastures abound ing in coarse grass and weeds on damp, rushy grounds, and on clay land pastures, an application /of 5 cwt. per acr3 will be found to pro duce satisfactory result during the first and subsequent seasons. The remarkable appearance of clover which follows closely upon , such an application is only to be accounted for by the stimulus which phospluitic and calcic manures give to this class of plants. White clover throws out suckers and is of a creeping nature, from which it derives it» botanical name' of repens. That the plant ex isted in a weak and spiwe condition previously cannot bo doubted, but a o* phosphate of lime causcs an unwonted development and. vigor ous growth of bocii wivt.2 clover owl other leguminous plants.

CHAPTER VIII. Discovery. I. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 2 April 1914

CHAPTER- VIII. Discovery. I. • There was a close bondfoetween the lovers now, and its golden shackles Were the music of their day. Hugh knew that she would speak presently, and tell him the whole truth of the tragic circumstance which had made of her an outcast He waited confi dently for her to speak, proud that she should he his guest, grateful for every glance which fell from her eloquent eyes. To be sure, there were difficulties for them 'both—and not the leaBt for midable was Geraldine. This shrewd Scotchwoman could make little of the simple Irish girl who gave so poor a clue to her tro,uble. Leila had made up her mind from the first to tell Geraldine nothing, and she did not tell her less. Her ingenuity took re fuge in vague hints and odd phrases which foiled her antagonist and left her powerless. Geraldine turned to the Archdeacon and found in him a wor thy ark. "Something must, be done at once," she said. The man agreed— though what the nature of that some thing should he, he...

LEILA AND HER LOVER By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement with Ward, ck and Co. Ltd., Land, and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER Vn. Two Women. Leila awoke at Desdy's touch in a spacious 'bedroom with .wide embat tled windows looking out upon the FirtU of Forth. '•Lally," he cried, "why do you not get up—the clock had struck a lot of times. Aren't you going to get up to-day, Lally?" She stirred from a heavy, sleep and sat up to look about her. The win dows were curtained, and out faint rays of the undimmed sunshine fell upon the gloomy tapestries of the high walls or the ancient gloomy tap estries o£ the high walls or the an cient hangings of the four-poster bed in which they had slept. Desdy was quite wide-awake and impatient of the night. She listened, and heard no other sound hut that" of the waves heating upon the distant shore. "Oh, Desdy," she exclaimed, "how you frightened me!" And then, '•Have you been awake long? Did any one call us?" He said that he had only just "w...

DOOKIE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 2 April 1914

DOOKIE. Mr T. G. Anderson, of Dookie, sus- tained some nasty abrasions about the head and body on Saturday, through being kicked by a horse. Mr Anderson was engaged in cutting the hind hoofs of a young horse, when a foal interfered. This made the horse step on Mr Ander- son's toe and pinned his foot. On falling backwards Mr Anderson caught the hock of the horse (which is a quiet one) but this gave the animal cause for lashing out. Several blows were struck, one catching the victim over the eye , another on the hip, tearing the trousers, and the most painful kick was at the back of the shoulder, causing a stiffness of the muscles. The wounds were bathed, and by the application of ointment a good recovery has been effected. At a meeting of the Dookie branch of the A.N.A., it was decided to write to the Railway Commissioners to see if any action is to be taken in connection with the opening of the new railway station. At the fortnightly meeting of the branch (held on Monday last) a let...
