THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914
THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. According to Mr. Gilbert, author of "Fortunes tor Farmers," spiritless Hodge is to be supplanted by an alert blue-smocked engineer, who will re ceive good wages and do the work of ten men, and be worth a hundred. If this be the type of man who is to do the tillage of the future, he will re quire a standard wage as will enable him to live in a good dwelling, and thus the rural housing problem will soon solve itself! Mr. Gilbert has evidently a warm hea'rt for small holdings, but pertinently says, "they cannot be established anywhere-only on better soils can they succeed."
HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914

If a farm is regarded as merely a cold, money. making enterprise we miss the harvest of good living in later years; but if we regard the farm as a home and cultivate those essen tials of satisfying living, comforts, trees and flowers, and things of beauty we reap a perennial harvest in the ripe years of old age when such things come to have a value far be yond grains and fat beasts.
