NOT GRANTED. Jones, able-seaman on H.M.S. Ver non, gazed into the face of his com mander pleadingly. "You are always on leave!" ex claimed the officer.

OH, YOU WOMEN I Two women friends, who had not seen each other for some time, met at a tea-shop. Airs. Brown could not resist the opportunity of dragging in allusions to motoring.

BIDDY THE HEN. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914
BIDDY THE HEN. The lost egg-more plainly, the bad egg?-costs the family circle of the United States over £13,200,000 an nually. This loss is by no means the fault of Biddy, the hen, who does her thrifty part to solve the "high cost of living," laying yearly over £O0,000,000 worth of eggs. Not a bad one does she lay. Hlow then, do we, her benificiaries, manage to despoil ourselves of two in every twelve of her gifts? Biddy's product is kept by the far mer a week or two or more before, it gets to the country store, where it abides another several weecks before shipment to the city comnumission mer chant. ironi the retailer, in due or undue season, Biddy's .eggs reach the consumler's pantry or ice-box, and thence appear by relays on his table. Now, hero is a problem of d.lays which Biddy cannot solve, and it is up to us more mortals to do it. Everybody can help a little, and everybody who helps a little is doing a public service -helping to feed our big family. No less an agent thai th...
THE MANAGEMENT OF YOUNG PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914
THE MANAGEMENT OF YOUNG PIGS. Our views as to what weight a pig should reach vary enormously. A friend of my own, once a well-known Berk shire breeder, made his pigs into ba coners in about thirty weeks or into porkers ini sixteen weeks, but I do not think that in these later days he would be satisfied with the results, for 7 months is a long period to feed a youngster for prime meat, whereas if the meat were too heavy the reduced price would remove all the incentive. A. porker pig should pay very well in sixteen weeks and not be too fat, as just as in the case of the baeoner this lets down the price. Another once famous breeder friend fed his pigs until his hams scaled 201b each, but these were only seven imonths old, yet they afford an excellent idea as to the gross weight of the carease. The curer of bacon requires not only lean meat, but small meat, hence the weight of a. bacon pig should not ex ceed 140 to 160 lb., and it is precisely such meat which obtains the best price and ...

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914
POULTRY NOTES. Too many chicks spoil the brood. A chick' in the nest is -worth two in the mind, The less the help the stronger .the chicks. The proof of the hatching is the (chirp of the chicks. The chick will never grind with the grit it never gets. Grit is a virtue in man"n and fowl. The lazier the hen the smaller the profits. Eggs to the number of 21,500,000 were imported into Great Britain last year. This interesting fact is reported by lMr. E. Brown, F.L.S., in his an nual review of the poultry industry. "At no time," he states, "has the de mand been so great and prices so good as in the twelve months reoently end ed. In 1913 there was a considerable rise in the volume of eggs and poultry received from overseas, as compared with 1912, yet prices have been grea ter. So far as native supplies are con orned, there has been a rise all round, showing that consumption is advancing more rapidly than production, whether native or foreign. What is true in Britain is equally the ease in ...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST' (By "Rusticus.") A spirited offer by Mr. A. E. T. Payne as a member of the council of the Royal Agricultural Society should do more towards bringing about the adoption of bulk handling of grain than the half-hearted recommendaticas that resulted from the long-drawn out investigations of the Commission of iEnquiry, and the feeble action prom sed by the Government as the outcoine of those recoumein dations. Mr. Payne is donating £100 for prizes for ideas for appliances to handle wheat in bulk. As a result of a conference of members of the council of, the Royal Agricultu ~al Society representatives of the Wheat Commission, the Railways Dd partments and the. Chamber of Agri culture, it was deoided that prizes of -£50, £30 and £20 should be offered for the most effective and economical methods and appliances for handling wheat in bulk from the time of its.de livery from the stripper, harvester, or thresher until its arrival at the rail way station, including storage on...

PUZZLED THE POLICEMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914
PiUZZLED THE POLICEMAN. Before she went away for a week at the seaside Mrs. Jones made her little husband promise to take the children for a walk on Sunday afternoon. Now, the Jones famnily consisted of an equal mixture of boys and girls, and number a dozen; and Sunday after noon saw Jones marching down the High ;treet at the head of his pro geny.. P.c. Plumhead, new to the game, and therefore zealous, watched Jones and his party for a few brief 'seconds; then walked firmly ip to 'hint and ar rested the little man. "You come along to the station with me !" ordered he. "But what for?" queried the duti ful father. "I haven't done, any thing I" "Ho, hindeed ! answered. the zea lous one. "I refuse to come I" shouted Jones in a frenzy. "Anyway, tell me what I am supposed to have done?" "I don't know what you're supposed to have done," retorted Plumhead, with lofty sarcasm. "But if you ain't done nothing, then, I asks you, what is this 'ere crowd follerin' you for?"
MORE SCHOOL HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914
lMORE SCHtOOL HUMOUR. . There is no end to the howlers from the schoolroom. An authority on the subject has just been pointing out that in English literature papers young ped ple are sometimes asked to' give their criticisms on certain books or authors. They usually rely on criticisms which they have read in books, but if their memories fail the results are often disastrous. One youthful critic cast aspersion upon Milton when he wrote: "',Milton married a young girl who ran back to her parents, so he wrote a sonnet on divorce:" "Shakespeare," affirmed another young oritic, "found ed 'As You Like It,' on a book pre viously written by Sir Oliver Lodge." "After twice committing suicide, the poet Cowper lived till 1800, when lihe died a natural death." Another hope ful wrotoe: "Sir Walter Scott's firm of publishers liquified, and he had to pay off the national debt before he died." And the youthful historian sagely added: "This wore him out."
