MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 16 March 1915

MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent:)'' The' views which the cable tells us have been oxpressed by the Earl of Sclbourne as to the sort of war news supplied are very much to the point. According to the:' message, the Earl said that the Government and thep ress were to blame for giving too favorable a color to the war news. If those who were responsible understood the charac teristics of the raiio they would mini mise tlio good news, and feature the bad. The need for something that will bring the people of this country to a more adequate realisation of just what we are tip.-against has. been vory much in evidenco during the past week. Tho chief autumn racing fixture has beon on aiuNthc festivities connected therewith have held sway. Probably the attend ances were not so good as former years. The drought would account for that, but there was each day a large crowd of apparently care-free pleasure seekers frivoling away their time and providing the wherewithal for the purp...

SHOULD BACHELORS BE TAXE[?]? [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 16 March 1915

SHOULD BACHELORS BE TAXEO ? In ordinary times the Bachelor Tax is a joke to bo fired off at Bmoko-night8 and sowing-meetings; hut it appears to be a very serious problem just now, for Mr J. B. Sharpe, Federal Member for Oiley, tells " Everylady's Journal" for March (just issued) that he in tends bringirg a bill before Parliament for the purpose of imposing a tax on Australia's half-million bachelors. Following up the receipt of this in formation, "Everylady'a Journal" in vited a number of prominent men to offer opinions upon the right or ?wrong of such a tax. Lord Mayor Sir David Henneasy says that bachelors ought to be taxed and that ho has always advocated a bachelor tax in season and out. Mr Carmicbael,Minister of Public Inatuct ion New South Wales, says that there are better ways both of raising re venue and of getting our young men married off. " The girls, " says Mr. Carmichael,have the remedy in their own hands. They have the vote-let them make the proposals!" Altogether it i...

lOF RURAL INTEREST (By "Busticus.") Already' the problem of wliat is to be done to furnish suitable employment for soldiers at the termination of the war is exorcising the minds of people in; England. It is interesting to note the direction in which its consideration is leading. There would appear to bo possibilities of an awakening to tho great field for employment that lios in the development of rural Australia. There is also the realisation that it is tho vast ecpty spaces in the outlying portions of the Empire, and particular ly- Australia, that will be the chief ele ment of clanger in fnturo.

TURKEY AND THE WAR [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 16 March 1915

TURKEY AND THE WAR i I Mr. J. M. Fawaz, B.A., 1040 Drum mond-st., North Carlton, contributes the following: The cables now inform us that the Turks have retired from the Suez Canal. To anyone who is acquainted with the composition of the army and the internal affairs of the country, it should not require much ingenuity or strain of imagination to. anticipate such an event. A NEW CRISIS. As the outeomc of this failure a new crisis will now face the people of Syria. A disappointed army, or the Turkish and fanatical section of it, will wreak its vengeance on the weak and unarmed civilians, who, certainly, are not sym pathetic. Tf we cannot fight, they will say in effect, we can kill; we are out to give vent to our barbarous nature in deeils of erueltv, and the aspiring Arabs and the Kaffir Christians aro as much our enemies as the hated British. The l'ears of fresh massacres indicated in the latest cables are certainly justi fied by anyone who knows Turkey or thoroughly understands the...

A PROFITABLE EXAMPLE OF MANURING FOR GREEN FEED. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 16 March 1915

A PROFITABLE EXAMPLE OF MANURING FOR GREEN FEED. .lu dairying and even iu general farming districts the oultivatioa of some crops for green feed iB considered advisable. In many cases cereal crops sown chioflj- for grain (or hay) are made use of towards the end of winter or iu the early spring by boing fed off I by stock. Such practice is ofton of great importance to the farmer for it gives him a supply of good feed when grass may be very scarce. Tho value of this feed should not be overlooked, aad naturally the moro feed available tho more stock can bene fit by it. , . "Whether the crop is grown only for green feed or whether it is subse quently to bo allowed to grow to oar and bo cut for hay or harvested for grain, tho use of suitable manures will invariably prove highly satisfactory and most profitable. In order to try the effect of a top drossing of nitrate of soda, an experi ment was carried out by Mr. George Langley, manager of Sir William Mc Millan's farm, at Albion Park, N.S...

WITH THE EXPEDITIONARY FORCE. Mena Camp, Cairo, 1/2/15. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 16 March 1915

WITH THE EXPEDITIONARY FORCE. Mena Camp, Cairo, 1/2/15. I took a turn out to Heliopolis on Sunday afternoon, but my time was rather limited. This is just a sort of   suburb of Cairo, and it is more like Toorak compared to Melbourne. All "the heads" live there, and the English ''heads" also make this a wintering place. There are certainly some magni ficent buildings here. An electric rail way runs from Cairo and it takes about 20 minutes to make the eight-mile journey. I never had the time to go through the great mosque there, and am afraid I won't have, but they say it is   magnificent. The tombs of Sikahra are about ten mile out and are also re garded as wonderful. There is a big underground city there and one can walk for hours underground. You might not believe it but there are a great number of unexplored places about Egypt. Why, even on the hill at the rear of our camp an American party is conducting an extensive search for relics and treasures at the ...

VALUE OF CHEESE AS A FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 23 March 1915

VALUE OF CHEESE AS A FOOD. Tho fact tbiii when it comes to the furnishing of genuine, muscle building, waste repairing food, cheese is in a class almost by itself, ami has butter beaten over ami over agaiu, is not as widely kiiowu as it should be. The truth is that cheese is one of the great est known protein foods that it is prac ticable to manufacture or produce in immense quantities, being much richer, pound for pound, in muscle-forming< material, than meat. On the other hand, butter, being almost all fat., is a good heat and energy ' producer, but lacks almost (\utirely the muscle-form* ing elements of food. From :\ general dietetic standpoint, it may be said that butter falls largely into tho luxury class, being an expensive but very eas ily digested fat, but cheese* is a strong, economical' food, suited to those who have hard work. While we are not .'id vising farmers to change butter fac tories into cheese factories, we havo no hesitancy in saying tha' cheese-makin...
