AGRICULTURE. ON PLOUGHING. Some Practical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914

agriculture. ON PLOUGHING. Some Practical Hints. j A recent number of the "Lincoln Col 1 lege Magazine" contains some excel lent hints on ploughing, given in the course of a lecture by Mr. W. Street, the farm overseer. j More depends upon the quality of ' the ploughing than most farmers are . aware of, for, as a rule, they think i that good after-cultivation will cover . up the defects of bad ploughing. But ; it is well known that uneven plough- \ | ing shows up clearly in the succeed ing crops, for there is a marked dlf ! t'eraice in the crop obtained off half a paddock ploughed at 6%in. compared with that off the other half ploughed at 4',2in. Straight ploughing is far better than crooked, for in taking a bend the plough is pulled away from its work and cannot pack the furrows as it should, the- horses pulling one way, and (lie plough tending to go the other. This leaves a badly-packed furrow bot tom, which no amount of cultivation can properly remedy. It is therefore important th...

"Weil, a doctor seems to be the only man that keeps on getting paid •vhetht-i- iiis work is satisfactory or not." Father anil son went for a stroll on© sweltering day recently.

COURAGEOUS WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914

COURAGEOUS WIFE. Many inventors have been helped by their wives, 'but it is not -every wife who would take such a step as Mme. Cayat de Castella did at Nevers recently. Her husband has invented a new parachute to be used in conjunction with an aeroplane, and the first test of the apparatus was made at the local aerodrome. Mme. de Castelia, who is quite young, went up with the aviator, M. Pelletier, on a biplane, to which is attached her husband's para chute. At the height of 2500ft. the aviator released the apparatus, to which the girl had been fastened, and she immediately dropped to the ground. Everything went off well. The parachute travelled with i gentle downward motion, and on landing in the aerodrome the plucky young wife was saluted with deafening cheers by the huge audience which had watched her feat with lively emo tion's. "How was your speech received?" asked one Labor member of another. "When I sat down they said it was the best thing I' ever did," was the reply.

WHAT KILLED THEM? [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914

WHAT KILLED THEM? Hundreds of years ago in a loft in the old Ta'bard Inn, in Southwark, a cat was' killed mysteriously just as she caught and was slaying two rats. One she had in her jaws, the other she was pinning down with her foot. How death came is not known, but it came in such a form that cat and rats alike "were mummified. For cen turies the group stood in the same position under the rafters, hidden from sight. The passage of time made no difference to their state, and when the old inn was pulled down they were at last discovered. This cat and her victims are now in a glass case in the offices of Mr. W. Le May, the hop factor, in Southwark. The cat is still holding the rats, and the skins were still intact. The rat which is held in the cat's jaws has its mouth open just as it had when it started to squeal before death over took them all.

THE RIGHT TO DIE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914

THE RIGHT TO DIE. j Mrs. William Squier, of Ateo, New Jersey, who was doomed to die by her doctors just one year ago, is now cured, and has left her bed, where for many months she had- lain a help less cripple, suffering continuously from an intestinal tumor. Her case has excited world-wide interest, be cause Mrs. Squier, regarding Her case as hopeless, appealed to the Legisla : ture for a law permitting euthanasia for herself and other victims, equally unfortunate, who had been "pro nounced incurable." The controversy raised by Mrs. Squier's plea for the right to die con tinued throughout the summer months, the two sides apparently be ing about equally divided. "When an animal suffers hopelessly we put it out of its misery," wrote Mrs. Squier, "but we allow human beings to re main in agony when there is no hope for them." One of the leading surgeons in New York heard of the woman's suffering and lier unusual appeal, and took in terest in her case. He disputed the verdict of her med...

THE LADi>ER OF FAME. i. "Then it's true—you are really go ing to be married?'' The anguish that underlay the low spokeu words—the stricken look of the woman who uttered them—escap ed the notice of the man, who stood with his face to the fireplace, study- ; ing a picture on the opposite wall. But he was not thinking of the picture at all, for in his eyes was a dreamy look of happiness that told the watch er all too surely of the self-absorption that enveloped him. "Yes," he said, slowly and lingering iy, as though lie were feeding on the happiness that had come to him. "Yes, I am really going to be married; and" ^turning to his companion—"I had to come and tell you first, Althea, for we've been such pals, you and I, haven't we?" She drew a short, sharp breath, and turned to the window. "When is it to lie—your wedding, I mean?" she asked, in a stifled voice. "In June." He laughed joyously. "Beautiful, leafy June. What better month could one have?" The words fell like ice on the lie...

CHAPTER XVII. A Great Invention. It was indeed liard for Geoffrey Herepath to realise the full measure of his misfortune. But a little time before lie had seen his way clear to the goal of his ambition. He had all the sanguine outlook of the inventor, but he had never been a mere dream er of dreams, had never wasted his time and intelligence on Utopian spec ulation. His was a strongly practical nature, and it was always the working value of the machine that appealed to him. Machinery! New and ingenious de vices for the saving of labor, contri vances that turned waste material In to articles of commerce! In these things he saw the way to fortune, to the employment of thousands of hands, to power in the country, to ari honored name amongst men. All these prizes of life Herepath would, he felt, be able to lay at Enid Har ley's feet! So, at least it had seemed to him but a little time before. A week or two longer and he would be able to show the world how to make new rubber from old. He...
