Then I saw tiirough the whole game at once.

LACK OF SYSTEM ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
LACK OF SYSTEM ON THE FARM. When we stop and look around, wo are not surprised that there are so many farmers who are discontented, who have spent, so many unprofitable years. There are so many of them robbers of the soil's fertility, and rob bers mostly come to grief, sooner or later. A man can't go on cropping his land year after year, and hauling the crop to market, without selling his land, too. And when both his land and Ills crop have gone, then—why, then he is discontented. "Farming don't pay."

VETCHES OR TARES. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
VETCHES OR TARES. Vetches or tarea are of two distinct kinds—those sown In the autumn for spring or early summer use, and those sown in the spring which come in after tho winter sowing is UBed up. There are few crops which yield such a largo amount of succulent green food, though perhaps for special pur poses other crops are preferable, but for general use and under all condi tions tares cannot be beaten. The amount of seed required per acre is about three bushels of tares and one bushel of oats or rye, the latter beinm sown to keep the tares off the ground somewhat and so prevent rotting in wet weather. In order to gain the full benefits from growing this green crop the sow ings should bo made at different inter vals, beginning as early as possible, when the land can be prepared, so that successive cuttings are obtained without allowing them to become ripT*. Tares are more suitable for soiling purposes than grazing,as this lnttor plan is very wasteful, much of the food' being tramp...

THE BUSY BEE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
THE BU£Y BEE. Winter is close upon us. In the coolest of our districts bees have al ready retired, and before the mont.n is out the retirement will be general. During the warmer portions of the days, especially It the sun is bright, the bees will still venture out, but they will not wander far from home ii last month's advice has been at tended to, i.e., if they are supplied with sufficient honey to carry them on till spring, or the coming breeding season. If bees are forced to go for aging on bright winter days, the sud den atmospheric changes prevent the return of many, and a good supply of food in the hive is the only remedy. It also forms one of the best methods to keep up the warmth of the hive. On every occasion when the weather is bright and drying, remove the wraps, etc., from the hives, and spread them out to dry. External dampness produces internal dampness, which is one of the most prolific causes of di sease. Just before 1 sundown return the protections to the hives. The...

WINTER CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914
WINTER CARE. The season is at hand that is the hardest on our over faithful friend the horse. The raw, damp, windy or extreme cold weather, together with a little neglect, may cause the loss of a. valu able horse. When a horse conies in wet from work or drive, rub him well and cover with a warm woollen blanket. Always change to a dry blanlcet when the horse has cooled. Rub the legs well with a wisp of straw or a towel. Every horse ia more or less warm when he comeB in from a drive. Never strip off the harness or saddle and let the horse rush into a feed of oats or a trough of water. Never give water or oats to a horse until he has been in the stable some time, and has had some hay. This is a sane and safe practice and much loss can bo avoided by en forcing it. Change the bit of the horse with the sensitive mouth. Take off the check, or let it out. Try a large rub* ber-covered bit. j If the horse "drives on one line," look to his teeth at once; a sharp] tooth is usually the cause. I<...

Leila and Her Lover. By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd,, London and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) IV. It was half-past three when lie ar rived ai tho prison—oddly enough the first tlmo ho had entered one in all his life. All the great traditions of the houBc of Donald had to do with the activities of manhood, war, tho chase, tho camps and courts of kings. He had known Aborfeldy Castle for a home since he had been a little lad, had found his childish kingdom on tho wild moorland or by the rugged sea shore. He knew littlo of cities, less of the sordid phases of twentieth cen tury life. London had been for him a vast theatro wherein he had seen the show from the boxes rather than from (he stalls—while of the pit ho had but the vaguest impressions. To such a man a prison stood at the nadir of life's purpose.
