DWARF PEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
DWARF PEARS. An American authority says: Whe' dwarf pears are to be used, the Angerz Quinee is the best stock. The Poo.'u gese can be used, however, to good ad vantage where the climate is very mild. The quince should be worked to either Koonce or Angouleme, and these in turn are worked over to vha't varieties are desired. While 'he dwarf pears have not been tried cu' very extensively as y.t., ther are some people who believe they are a bet ter commercial proposition that the standards. T The distance for planting pears wal! vary from 22ft to 0Oft, according to soil and climate. fane of our varet ies of pears are sterile and do not set fruit well with their own pollen. The Cornice comes in this class, and the Anjou sets fruit poorly with its own pollen. In fact even with self-sterile varieties I would recommend planting so as to secure cross pollenation. I would suggest two lists, early bloomers and late bloomers. For Oregon, the early bloomers are Bartlett, Clairgeau, Anjou, Howell...
REUTER'S CABLES. BRITAIN'S DEFENCES, CAN THEY BE PIERCED ? COMPULSORY TRAINING URGED. LONDON, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
RhiUTER'S 0C BLES. BRITAIN'S DEFENCE8, CAN THEY BE PIERCED ? COMPULSORY TRAINING URGED. LONDON, FRIDAY. Field-Marshal Lord Roberts headed a deputation from the National Ser vice League which waited on the Prime Minister to-day to present a memorial urging the application of the compulsory principle'to the Ter ritorial forces. The deputation also included Admiral the Rt. Hon. Sir Edward Seymour, Admiral of the fleet from 1905 to 1910. Lord Roberts said that the regular force was many thousands of men short of its necessary establishment, and with the Territorial force was lamentably short of officers, with the consequence that the men were deficient in training, discipline, and mobility. He considered that the situation required prompt attention. Sir Edward Seymour declared that defence against invasion, the protection of trade against destruc tion by an enemy's fleet, and the support of colonial stations, if left entirely to the navy, were beyond its present capacity. Mr Asquith, in...
FAINTING. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
FAINTING. There are a great many causes of fainting, but the main Basis of it is a general feebleness of the blood. In some cases there is a constitutional tendency to it, and ouriously enough, this is frequently done away with by a familiarity with scenes that other times would produce the most violent faintness. Young medical students, just beginning their career, have been known to be overcome by the scenes of the dissecting-room, who in after life became very famous, and so to speak, callous surgeons. Many young sol diers, who in very; many cases, had hardly left their mother's apron strings when they enlisted, and who had faint ing fits at sight even of an animal being tortured, have early learned to view all the horrors of a disastrous battle-field without the ordinary compunotions of the faint-hearted. Other causes of the tendency to faint ness are indigestion, and an over-ween ing sympathy, and a case of fainting itself, when occuring among the very sympathetic, will often p...

PIGEON SHOOTING. DETECTIVES' REPORT. MELBOURNE, SATUaDAY.

Those killed or wounded were gathered immediately by five specially trained dogs which were used in turn so that each was always fresh. If . birds were wounded they were instantly killed. Reports are to be made concerning the sport in other places.
ABOUT BUYING COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
ABOUT BUYING COWS. A renresentative letter from an Eng lish dairy farmer in the "British Ag ricultural Press" says :-"Cow buying is a very uncertain business. There is much faking in the cow market, but home-bred heifers are at least honest. Horns may be rubbed down, and udders stocied and other purchases may turn out deceptive owing to udders being what is knonw as fleshy. Many cows nay milk well for the first two or three mont.hs, and then quickly dry off, and t:,se are just the animals which will be ru, round and offered for sale after theit next calving. Some cows which milked well in thier own homes do badly when transferred to a new place. Siome are sold because they are kickers, or hable io blow or suffer from some re*suI 'ng ailment. "No one doubts that heifers are sal-, buying than cows, but the fact remains ti-.t we arc losing ground as to the supply of n ji king cattle by the system of dealing to', exclusively with cows.

WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. SCOTTISH POETRY FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. SCOTTISH POETRY FOR CHILDREN. The study of poetry is becoming a vital force in Victorian schools, both elementary and secondary, due to the recogmnition by the powers that be of the great factor it is in promoting a sound knowledge of English and directing the young mind to new spheres of pleasure and profit. But it is not alone those in authority who recognise and appreciate the delight to be derived from a sympathetic applica. tion to good poetry. To no small ex tent the pupils, whenever led -by a teacher of understanding, take a whole souled interest in their English studies, both in and out of school. And as it is always girls who appreciate the wonder and beauty of a natural fact (while boys are mostly content with noting the fact itself) so it is-speaking generally-the girlish mind that always takes first to what is best in literature. Not so long ago there was an absorbing out-of-school discussion waged among some High School g...

CASTLES IN THE AIR. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
CASTLES IN THE AIR. The bonnie, bonnie bairn sits pokin' in the asso, Glowermin' in the fire wi' his weo round face; Laughin' at the fuffin' lowe-what sees he there ? Bal the young dreamer's biggin' castles in the air ! His wee chubby face, an' his towzy curly pow, Are laughin' an' noddin' to the dancin' lowe; He'll brown his rosy cheeks, and. singe his sunny hair, Glowerin' at the imps wi' their castles in the air. He sees muckle castles towerin' to the moon, He sees little sodgers puin' them a' doun; Warlds whomlin' up an' doun, blazin' wi' a flare, Losh I how he loups, as they glimmer in the air. For a' sae sage he looks, what can the laddie ken ? He's thinkin' upon naething, like monoy mighty men; A wee thing mak's us think, a sma' thing mak's us stare, There are mair folks than him biggin' castles in the air. Sic a night in winter may weel mak' him cauld; His chin upon his buffy hand will soon mak' him auld; His brow is bent sae braid, ob, pray tbpt Daddy Care Wad let the wean ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
A serious outbreak of a variety of ptomaine poisoning has occurred at Majorca. Those affected are:-Mr and Mrs R. Wright and their son Richard, Mrs Joseph Wright and child, Mrs John Wright, and a youth named John Holmes -seven in all. The source of the trouble has not been definitely located. When the symptoms were noted as those of ptomaine poisoning, meat was suspected, but it was found that some of those attacked had not partaken of animal food at all, and the belief is now enter tained that the cause of the outbreak was decomposition in the drinking water at the Wright household. In view of this, all water used for drinking is now first boiled. Under Dr. Garde's skilful treat ment all the patients are prigreasing satisfactorily. Yesterday they were all declared to be out of danger, though Mesdames Joseph and John Wright are still far from well. Mr A. J. Stephens, who for some years past has held the position of Town Clerk of the borough of Majorca, has been ap pointed secretary a...
GOOD NIGHT, AND JOY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 2 March 1914
GOOD NIGHT, AND JOY. The year is wearing to the wane, An' day is fading west awa', Loud raves the torrent an' the rain, An' dark the cloud comes down the shaw; But let the tempest tout an' blaw Upon his loudest winter horn, Good night, and joy be wi' yon a', We'll maybe meet again the morn! O, we ha'e wander'd far and wide O'er Scotia's hills, o'er firth an' fell, An' mony a simple flower we've cull'd, An' trimm'd them wi' the heather-bell! We've ranged the dingle an' the dell, The hamlet an' the baron's ha', Now let us take a kind farewell, Good night, an' joy be wi' you a'! Though I was wayward, you were kind, And sorrow'd when I went astray; For 0, my strains were often wild, As winds upon a winter day. If e'er I led you from the way, Forgi'e your Minstrel aince for a'; A tear fa's wi' his parting lay, Good night, an' joy be wi' you a'! -James Hogg ("The Ettrick Shepherd")
