It was but little more than u yt'iir from the time wo have alluded to tlmt Julia—not the bright, animated Julia ,wt before have known, but tlie sallow, languid Mrs, Merton—slowly entered hor cousin's apartment. "Reading, as usual!" was hor salu tation. "What have you there, Grace? —a stupid-looking book enough. 'Aids lo Ilellectlon.' Then you are in the vory mood for a visit from me, for I want your aid to soiuo very sovious reflections I have just been indulging In upon the world in general aud your own beautiful solf in particular." So saying, Mrs. Merton laid aside hor rich walking-cloak, and disposed herself vory comfortably for a morn ing's chat. "Do you know, Grace," she contin ued, "that X liavo serious thoughts of writing a novel called 'Orace: A Mys tery'? I think It might take," "What do you moan, Julia?" "I moan that you, Innocont as you look, have for tho Inst year boon aa great an enigma to mo as—as—I am to myself"—anil Mrs. Morton's coun tenance, which tor a moment lia...
WHY SILAGE IS ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
WHY SILAGE IS ESSENTIAL. There are several reasons lor the popularity ol' silage. More i'oeil can. be stored in a given space jn the form of silage than in the form of fodder or hay. Thero is a smaller loos of food ma terial when a crop lu made into silage than when cured as fodder or hay. Corn Bllago Is a more efficient feed than corn fodder. An acre of corn can be placed in the silo at less coBt than the r;aine area can ho husked and shredded. Crops can bo put in the silo dur ing weather that could not bo util Ised In making hay or curing fodder. More stock can be kept on a given area of laud when Bilage is the baslB of tlic ration. There is less waste in feeding silage than in feeding fodder. Good silage properly fed is all consumed. Silage is very palatable. Silage, liko other succulent feeds, has a beneficial effect upon the diges tive organs. Silage is the best and cheapest form in which a succulent feed can be pro vided Cor winter use. Silage can bo used for supplement ing pa...
WASTED YEARS OR JULIA'S DISCOVERY. I. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
WASTED YEARS OR JULIA'S DI8COVERY. "Contusion worfle confounded" had reigned nil day In the lmndaomo estab lishment of Mr. Clnvoring. Upholster ers bad boon busy removing furniture and arranging ornaments; gardeners were bearing in exotic plants and toworing pyramids of flowers; confec tioners, French coolcs, baiters, vint ners had, fn their turn, haunted the precincts; and now, at eight in the evening, there was a general lull, broken only by tho oxclaniations of the troop ol' worthies who were tumbl ing over each, other In their zeal to give the last finish to tho arrange ments for a splendid entertainment.

STRANGE COINCIDENCES Scientific and Literary Parallels. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
STRANGE COINCIDENCES Scientific and Literary Parallels. In llie Ilvos of most of us colnnci dence lma played a part. Probably nine out of every ton people can re call ovcntB and dates which, co-lncld Ing with one another, are a source of wonderment. There are some coinci dences, however, which are of such a character as to call for more tlian casual comment. In the November iBsue of the "Strand Magazine," for instance, there ii u photograph illustrating a phen omenon only visible in the tropics— that of sunshine at noon when no sha dow Is thrown by objects exposed to the sun's rays, tho explanation being that tho ship upon which the photo graph was taken was at the moment in the exact nadir of the sun's zenith. The ponomenon was observed ami re corded-by Mr. W.

II. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
II. True to his intention, Mr. Morton the next day made his formal pro posal, flrBl to Mr. Clavering, who re ceived it with pleasure, secondly to his daughter, who recoiled from it \v»th mingled aurpriHe and disgust. Mr. Morton could scarcely credit his senses—he refused! he, the owner of hundreds of thousands!—it was in credible. Filled with indignation, smarting with ail the agonies of a wounded self-esteem, he hastened to his cou ndante, Julia, who smoothed his ruf fled plumes with infinite adroitness. Her flatteries fell like balm upon his lacerated vanity; her gentle glance beaming through her half-closed eyes, the gentle pressure of her dimpled hand—all told with, wonderful effect, until at last, to Mr. Merton*sHnfinite surprise, one bright morning he is sued forth l'rom Mr. Annesley's quiet dwelling the»plighted husband of his. daughter! How it had come about, Mr. Mer ton vainly ransacked his memory to tell—he certainly had never dreamed of such a thing. But Julia had, and fr...
TO GET GOOD POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
TO GET GOOD POTATOES. A piece of old pasture is lino soil for potatoes. -The better the turf, the better the crop. A clover sod is about the best. Put a good team on the plough and set the share deep down. Potatoes need a loose, deep-set bed. It is a leg-weary business to trump back and forth across ploughed ground all day; and yet this is the price of good potatoes. Take your time to it, aud bo thorough. You will save-time in the long run. The more burrowing the less cultivating. Get the seed well down. It may not come up so soon, but when it does come it will shoot ahead fast. A four, inch covering is about right.
FARM IMPLEMENTS. How to Run a Reaper. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
FARM IMPLEMENTS. How to'"Run a Reaper. With the modern binder, and in a moderately even crop, there should be practically no waste. Much un necessary waste is occasioned by not giving the machine the right amount of tilt. Many binder experts argue that the machinc should be run quite level—that is to say, the Unifo bar should not be tilted in any way, but the whole machine should be horizon tal, their argument being that the bear ings will run more easily owing chicily to their parts getting more perfectly lubricated. Now, while it must be admitted that there is a certain amount of reason in this, it neverthe less cannot be followed to the letter. The practical driver knows from ex perience that to run the binder abso lutely .level means a bad-shaped sheaf with an enormous amount of waste, which is greatly increased if there is a slight head breeze, or if the horses should get on a little extra pace.
FARM JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
FARM JOTTINGS. The "discipline of the farm" is the asset of the farm boy that marks him . through later life. The endless round i of planting and harvesting, the daily .cave of animals, the regular toil of which there is no cessation, to him so often a dull routine, form altogether au inestimable training in systematic hab its and thoughts that accounts for his superior achievement in the industries, commerce, and statemanship in later life. The. veal opportunity for satisfac tory living in farming comes not so much from the nature of the work as from the fact that the farm is a busi ness and a home, intricately interwo ven. Life and work united, which is the natural thing. It is much easier to maintain soil in a satisfactory condition of efliciency by crop rotation and the application of artificial manures than to restore it. after it lias once been impoverished by the loss of fertilising constituents. In pasturing lucerne it must not be over-stocked, and the animals will in jure t...
SCOURING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
SCOURING CALVES. From experiments carried out in Germany it is claimed to have been discovered that sour milk given to calves from the Jlrst to the fifth day of their lives, forms an excellent pre ventive of scour. The constant losses —sometimes of valuable pedigree calves—are well known in most herds, and are attributed to the curdling of the milk in the stomach. The bacteria in sour milk are supposed to act bene ficially. In Germany ft fs called yog hurt, produced by adding Bacillus bul garicus to milk. This generates lac tic acid in the stomach of the calves, which acts as a disinfectant, and pre vents the development of the hurt ful bacteria, and at the same time sti mulates the activity of the intestine, probably by producing a ferment that1 destroys the bacilli which give rise ! to scour.
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. . Within the past ten years the dairy cows of Australia have increased from one million to above two millions^ The butter produced in a single year reach ed about 200,000,000 lbs. The annual export is valued at between £3,000,000 and £4,000,000. No rural industry in Australia is more progressive and none pays larger returns to the fanners. The mainstay of dairying is the export market, ami easily the largest con sumers of Australian butter' abroad are the people of the United Kingdom. It might be thought that the expense of carrying butter from Australia to London would be a serious handicap upon butter-making in the Common wealth. As a matter of fact, however, the Australian dairy farmer, in point of cost, is as close to London as the dairy farmers of Ireland or Scotland. The actual contract price of shipping butter from either Melbourne or Syd ney to London is %d. per lb.
DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. I An English dairying authority cays: I The elimination of the worthless ani* mala should be one of the chief ob jects of the cow koeper. j Milk record# kept carefully, and sya | tematlcally furnish reliable informa tion which enables a cow keeper to do* tect these worthless animals; and it ' pays him to dispose of them at once. ] There are some farmers, of course, j who may be tempted to rely wholly j on their own judgment as far as the j milking capacities of any cow is con icerned; but guess-work of this kind j can teach nothing what it costs to I feed cows, nor whether such food is j being economically fed in relation to I the average quantity of milk produced. | Milk producers need to study this | question of cost of food in relation to ' milk yield very carefully indeed. The fact is clear that a cow giving, say, 800 gallons per annum costs practic ally no more to feed than one which only gives 600 gallons; yet, compara tively speaking, there is...
It Reminds 'Em. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
It Reminds 'Em. A groat man once said to a friend: "I think I'll write my recollections." "Very good," said the friend, "but let me caution you not to recollect anything about celebritlos that are living." "Why, what's the danger, anyway?" "The danger/1 replied the other, "1b that is soon as you begin to recollect things about living celebrities thoy will begin to recollect things about you."
WARTS ON TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
WARTS ON TEATS. Many people fail to get rid of warts because they think it can only be done , with great difficulty, or by tearing the wart bodily away, but'this is not the case. When cows are milked twice a day it does not seem to afford much opportunity to get rid of warts. To use any substance of a poisonous nature for the wart is dangerous in many ways. When the teats are chapped only, some kind of soothing ointment should be applied, and for this pur pose carbolised vaseline, and other preparations may be procured from the chemist. This will heal the teat up in a short time, and allow the milk ing to be carried on without any dis comfiture to the cow. In the case of warts, when small they can generally be got rid of by touching tbem with caustic soda. An* other simple remedy, and one which in many cases has been found to be successful; rub the wart with vinegar, then while it is still wet dust ft with dry carbonate of soda. If this is done after each milking, the warts will : g...
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. No branch of dairy farming is more important than the feeding and treat ment of cows; yet none is more gen erally neglected. The direct influence of what the cow eats and drinks upon the inilk she produces cannot be too ; strongly impressed upon the attention j of tho farmer. Of equal importance ! are the conditions under which food and drfnk are taken. If cows are chased by dogs or over-driven, or wor ried by boys on their way to pasture, their milk will surely show the effects in a deterioration of quality. If their shelter in winter or shade in summer i is insufficient, or the food is not suf 1 flciently nutritive, the penalty will in variably be paid in a smaller milk yield. These restrictions are incvi ; table. One of the greatest mistakes far mers make is in supposing that they may with impunity keep their cows on "short commons" during the win ter and that they will fatten up in the spring, and milk as well as ever. A cow reduced to meagreness by sem...
LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
LADIES' LETTER^ (By "Irene.") The more we see of the new fash ions the more it becomes apparent thnt the stiff corset must go and the new figure and pose be adopted, to a certain extent, if they are to be worn with any good effect. There must be a svelte pliability that any much- bon- j ed and braced corset will not allow, J and there must be a certain sugges-! tion of limpness. How different is the 1 new. figure-line from that of last year. So much so that many thoughtful wo men long have hesitated before adopt ing the new style. The question is: will complicated draperies enjoy as short a reign as did panniers last .sea son? Pariaionues were almost taken i aback themselves by the unheard of j eccentricities paraded for their edi ! flcatlon at fashionable racecourses. J The leading houses, seeing they had i overstepped the mark, capitulated, I and immediately made tracks in an I other direction. Hence modes which j threatened to /be more thau eccentric ! have become subdued and are...
