FEED MOULTING HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 April 1915
FEED MOULTING HENS. When hens begin to cast their lea tilers and droop around in lazy fashion, or shuffle in some shady nook, then is the time that the egg basket returns with, bottom hardly covered, for it is the season of rest and transition, com monly called "the moult," But despite the1 falling away, liberal feeding must not be discontinued. This is the hen's rightful vacation. Sim will repay her owner later on for the feed given her now. A generous supply of food is neces sary throughout the moulting period, Of course a variety of food is prefer able, where possible to obtain. If the grass is dry and woodsy, a "little green lucerne or other green for age plant as a supplement to the usual fresh "pickings" is recommended, in addition to liberal grain rations. Cab bage- and fresh chopped vegetables and table scraps are also valuable.

TBS MASTER PASSION (By Lillian Ellerton). CHAPTER XLVII. HUStfAND AND WIFE. Ida's arm was not broken, but only badly sprained, but for several days she Buffered from the sliock to her nerves, and was glad to lie on the sola and rest from all exertion. Dr Smith came to see her two or three times, as he considered that the consequences to her nervous system might be serious. Struck by. her oxceeding beauty, he wondered if she were the Ida whoso name his late patient, Captain Beres ford ,Uad called1 on so constantly with his fevered UP* She was a woman about whom any man might rave, but her husband did not 6eem to regard her as his one pre cious treasure on earth, though he was tolerably affectionate in his ways. Still there was a happy smile on Ida's lips, a calm look of content in her eyes, which puzzled the doctor much. He did not know the oojutort that it was to her aching heart to feel that Cis Deveral no longer thought her worth less. They would never meet again to that she must ...
ARSENICAL SPRAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 April 1915
ARSENICAL SPRAYS. Do arsenical sprays iujurc tho soil, uud thereby constitute a danger to the trees'? Not as long as grass and other herbage continues to grow under the sprayed trees. L. H. Bailey, in "Prin ciples of Fruit Growing," says: "With tho action of the rains, and the falling f of the leaves, most of the arsenic which is applied to trees finally reaehes the soil. "What then becomes of it? If lime has been used with the spray, tho arsenic will be insoluble when it falls upon the soil. It is pos sible that, the organic acids in tlio soil, aud also carbonic acid, will dissolvo some of the arsenic, but it would be al most surely mado immediately insoluble again by combination with lime or other soil constituents. If soluble arsenic is placed on the soil it probably almost immediately goes into insoluble combinations, and remains whore it was placod, unless slightly washed down by mere mechanical means. Jfow, some plants appear to have the power to take up very minute quantities...

RANDOM READINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 April 1915
RANDOM READINGS. (By Silas Sneli). I have the word of both the business people and their customers that the credit system is the curse of the dis trict. It is a devil's device to lure people on to procure on tick what they can't pay for this week, but expect to be able to pay for next week. When people have unlimited credit they order what they want, not what they can pay for. No habit is so commou as that of procrastination ; so long as we can postpone the day of reckoning our minds are easy. Then when the bill comes it's about twice as big as we thought it would be. But we get used to the system, and when we get into debt we come to the conclusion that credit, though amazingly convenient, is the parent of extravagance and happy 1' go-lucky thriftlessne88, and we find we have to pay for our credit, and some body else's, too All over the world the system of credit is what keeps the poor man poor-not for what he is charged, though he has to pay for the generally increased rink that t...

WITH THE TROOPS IN EGYPT. - Mr E. Roberts has received the fol lowing letter from his son, Harry, a member of the Veterinary Corps, 2nd Contingent, now in Egypt: We left Melbourne on December 22, the transport consisting of 14 troop ships and one submarine. The sea was fairly rough till we got to Albany on 28th, arid most of us were "gloriouoly" sea sick. We were towed into the harbor to take in coal and water, but were not allowed asho:e, as some of First Contingent who got leave painted the place red. Three more troop ships were picked up, making 17 in all, aud we departed on 31st for Colombo. The 6ea was very calm and we had a good trip until we got into the tropics. We crossed the equator on the 8th, and never saw a ship all the way. The tropical rains come up, apparently from nowhere, very quickly. The weather, was so hofc that a lot of us used to sleep out in hammocks, and many a night we have turned in under a cloud less sky and been wet through before we could get under deck...

''Having for years used Clements Tonic, I bear testimony to its value as a Household Friend. A friend induced me to try Clem ents Tonic, and although sceptical as to its merit, I was so gratified with the result of its use that I have never since been without it. I found it a splendid medicine to regulate the system also a tonic bracing the nerves.

By reason of the large fields I trav elled over for * years in my work of church organisation, I had unusual op portunities for recommending to squat ters, settlerR, agriculturists, miners an...
