Ordered to the Front. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 9 April 1914
Ordered to the Front. Mr. John Hassali, whose good stor ied'are famous, tells of a retired Army officer who was in his back garden one day when a tramp came around the end of the house. "I've been at the front," he began, "and " The old officer beamed on him as he interrupted to ask: "Have you, my man? »And were you wounded?" "No," said the man, "no, sir, not exactly. But I couldn't make no one 'ear, so I come round to the back."
Patience is a Virtue. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 9 April 1914
Patience Is a Virtue. If patience is really a virtue there is a young man in the south-eastern suburbs who ought to wear a full-size halo. Last Thursday night he stood at a street corner and referred to his watch which registered seven o'clock. Just then , a girl with a small Covent Gar den on lier hat approached. "What a time you have kept me waitiag, Maud," said the youth. The girl tossed her head. "It's only just seven," she said, "and I didn't promise to be here till half-past six.V The young man smiled. "Yes," he said, "but you've mistaken thp day. I've been waiting since last night!"
The Unknown Quantity. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 9 April 1914
The Unknown Quantity. "I'll bet she will," began the rash youth. - "Don't!" interrupted his older and wiser companion. '"Don't bet that she will ever do anything. You-can never tell what a woman will do." "But," protested the young man, "I was going to bet that she would do the unexpected." "Don't," repeated the elder earnest ly "Even that is no safe bet."

HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 9 April 1914
HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. The guiding principle in the appli cation at manures is to use them as supplementary to the natural 6oil re sources, and not as a main source of fertility. Most good agricultural soils contain vast stores of dormant plant food, and the aim should toe to develop as much as possible of this -plant food latent In the soil toy thorough cultiva tion, supplementing any deficiencies with fertilisers. What those deficien cies are can best toe found out by ac tual experiment, and, having deter mined them,' the problem for each farmer and orchardist is to ascertain the most profitable and economic way of supplying the soil's needs. In all districts, with a light rainfall, super phosphate is likely to continue tho most profitable of all phosphatic man ures. In the wetter areas, however, especially on sojls deficient in lime, basic slag, or Thomas' phosphate Is i valuable adjunct to the production of good crops. ■' When a man and a girl whisper to gether they are almost ...
PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 9 April 1914
PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. Many devices have come under no tice from time to time to cope with the mice pest in the wheat or hay field. Building the stack upon a raised platform does not answer the purpose; the mice will climb up the blocks up on which the platform is built, run along underneath the platform boards, and so enter the stack. Enclosing the stack, as some farmers do, with fine wire netting, will also 'be found un suitable, as the mice will climb up the wire netting. The only successful method to keep them out is to enclose the stack with a fence of galvanised iron, either plain or corrugated, about two feet high. Let the iron into the ground to a depth of ofur inches, and place it in a slant ing position, pointing outwards from the stack, all around iti taking care to leave no open space at the cor ners; it will toe found impossible for mice to enter a stack thus protected.
FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 9 April 1914
FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. A matter which Is very often ne ments. They are so often allowed to glected on farms is the care of imple lie about the place in all weathers that their periods of usefulness are seriously curtailed. After an imple ment has done its first season's woric the owner should, when stowin? ;t in its proper place, see that it is in or der, and if there are any defects he should make a note of them, or, if convenient, it is better to have such defects repaired at once. Then he knows that his machine is ready for the next season's work. With sucii implements as the stripper or har vester, where belts are used, the belts should be removed and have a little oil rubbed on them, and foe put away in a cool place. The seed drill is an implement that requires a lot of care. A little extra attention will often save two or three days' delay. Suco im plements as ploughs, harrows, culti vators, etc., which are of iron, do not require a shed so much, but a l...

MAKING FARMING PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 9 April 1914
MAKING FARMING PAY. We are alt trying to make things pay, but we refuse to invest enough brains in the study of things so that we can make them •pay. Farming everywhere, and in everything, is a deep question, one o fthe profound est. It requires a lot of thought, study and good judgment to make it pay. Some must have an Immediate profit, and so they skin the land. Oth ers try to save expense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save ex pense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save expense in secur ing good breeding stock, and so pro duc cows theat do not giv the most profitable result. Others refuse to feed a good cow sufficiently to enable her to produce to her fullest capacity. All about us is this ever-present ques tion of making things pay, and saving useless, not useful, expense. Surely there is neded a lot of wit and wisdom on the farm. A young girl was going to make her first visit to a cousin in the country. At the station she was met by the cousin, and aft...

A JOURNALIST'S WORK AND HIS TRIALS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 9 April 1914
| A JOURNALIST'S WORK AND HI8 TRIALS. " By John Foster Fraser. Many aspirantB for journalistic fame want to be a special correspondent. It is an ideal life. You go everywhere, and see everything. You are the ac credited representative of a great newspaper, and your profession is the open sesame to witnessing all the his toric sights of your day. You may he sent to'record the Durbar in India; or to describe a Presidential election.in the United States; or to witness fight ing in the Balkans, and send thrilling despatches to your journal; or to have a good time at Cowes, writing about the regatta; or to. attend huge poli tical demonstrations and provide pen pictures of the proceedings. And everywhere things are made easy and pleasant, for the Press is a great fac tor in the land. It is a charming picture, and I re member the time, twenty-five years ago, when, as a very junior writer, I looked upon the special correspondent as a very god- in my profession, and I had dreams that maybe o...

XI. Geraldine naturally knew nothing of Bob Keating or his sins, and she made but scant reference to them at the luncheon table. Old Farmer Rath way was sure to rob the Insurance , Companies, slie said, and wh£t did it matter? The villagers had enjoyed a bonfire, and there was the end of it. Her manner toward Leila continued to be gracious; but while it may have deceived her brother, the object of her new civilities was not to be de ceived. Leila believed her to be a kindly woman at heart, but one who was obsessed by this idea of saving Hugh from what she believed, quite conventionally, to be the penalties of his folly. For that, Leila saw, Bbe i would sacrifice much, and the so-call ed canons of hospitality first of all. 1 No doubt some plan of action had oc curred to her and she was even then i occupied in carrying it out. Leila felt j ; herself surrounded by perils so sub- ' tie that her woman's intellect could j give no battle to them. She must j leave this house; there could be...
THE PRODUCER'S POINT OF VIEW. What Is 'Farm Management? [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 9 April 1914
THE PRODUCER'S POINT OF . " VIEW. : What Is 'Farm Management? What is farm management? How is It to foe applied to farm problems as a method of work in their solution? If it Is not a definite method of solving farm problems, it is not -worth while to pursue its study.- The term has a definite significance; it is a distinct method of attacking individual farm problems. It signifies a well-ordered business; a clearly-defined system of conducting farm operations under a particular set of conditions. There is no more important problem before the farmers in this State than that of mak ing his farming more profitable. This cannot be done without a more com plete and detailed knowledge of the business on individual farms. How does farm management help us to this knowledge? Farm manage ment in a word is the application of sound principles, good judgment and economic rules to the business of I .farming. In order to emphasize the importance of profit and to ensure the securing of a reasonable...

DOOKIE COLLEGE NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 9 April 1914
DOOKIE COLLEGE NOTES Seeding operations have now commenced. The lato rains-while not yet sufficient, have rendered sowing possible. 180 acres of Algerian oats will soon be put in. It has been decided to sow rather heavily at the rate of two bushels per acre for the purpose of smothering the saffron tb'.s tles which grow very luxuriantly on the new lands purchased not many years ago for the college. Superphosphate at the ratt> of 42 lbs. per aero is being drilled in with Hie oats, the comparatively low rale of measuring being ren dered necessary by the richness of (lies oil.

CHAPTER IX. Flight. I. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 9 April 1914
CHAPTER JX. * Flight. I. She excused herself at the break fast-table, fearing to hear the news of the night. The maid who wakened her had babbled some story of a tramp who had fired the ricks on Mr. Rathway's farm, and had succeeded in burning down the school-house as well. The police were looking for the man, she said, but he was not taken. "A good-for-nething body that should be in prison," the girl added. . Leila made no comment. It was ten before Desdy awoke, and she must dress him and give him breakfast. When he had gone off to his games with Robert, the groom (a silly man who knew nothing of motor 'buses and would learn less from so arrogant a master as Desdy), Leila herself went down to the gardens and was not surprised to find Hugh wait ing for her. Evasion was possible to neither, and they fell at once to speak ing of the story of the night. "The fellow appears to have gone from here on the Haddington-road," Hugh said. "He must have doubled upon his tracks and returned to A...

The Archdeacon had been over to North Berwick to watch all the world at work upon the links, and to tell droll stories of his failures. These were ad dressed chiefly to Hugh, who did not hear them, rarely to Geraldine, whose manner towards Leila had changed wholly since luncheon. She was al most gracious now, but with a gra ciciisness which a shrewd woman would have suspected with justice. She talked of Hugh's journey, o£ the' emptiness of Edinburgh at such a sea son, and the guests she herself ex petted ai the week-end. "All golfing people," as she said to the Archdea con, "and such enthusiasts! I don't thing there will be anything left of tiie Kilspindie links when they have gone." Hugh asked who was coming, and she gave him several names, none, however, which moved him to any ...
