MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 February 1915

MELBOURNE LETTER (From Our Special Correspondent) Since the departure nearly twelnty years ago of the late Lord HIopctoun -as he was known then and as he is held in most affectiolnate remem brance-there has been no Governor who has got so far into the hearts of the people of Victoria as the pre sent representative of the Crown Sii' Arthur Stanley. He is the typical gentleman in the true meaning of that much overworked term. lHis un affected, sunny, geniality is infecti ous, and, while lie is capable of main taining the dignity of his ofice, he is one of the best of illustrations of the fact that the Britishcr is not always the arrogant, self-satisfied individual that foreign peoples delight to depict him. But with all his sang froid, Sir Arthur Stanley has, since the out break of the war, proved time and again that he is the stuff of which statesmen are made. His broad sane outlook, and virile patriotism, have done much of what has been done to bring about a true perspective of the ...

DODDER IN LUCERNE. With regard to complaints about this troublesome parasite, prevention is a more practical remedy than cure. As to a cure, it is recommended that the lucerne should be taken in hand before flowering. One method said to be offee-c ti\-vo is to cut the lucerne close to the ground, clearing up the surface, and drawing everything from a yard bo yond the edge of the affected part to the centre, and there burn it. In no eircumstances should the cut stuff be carried away, as in so doing fragments are sure to fall, and so disseminate the disease. If in flower there is danger of ripe seed not being burnt. After a week the spots should be examined lest a fragment has escaped destruc tion, and is spreading again. Another system is to spray the patches after they have been cut with a 10 per cent. solution, 1 lb. to 1 gallon of water, of sulphate of copper (blue vitroil, blue stone), or of sulphate of iron (green vitriol, copperas). Arsenate of soda is also recoUlnmendel as a s...

Our careless reading of this passage had led sonme to assame that Ithe oowing knee anl the confessing tosgle mrill be a mere frtor niality; while our hearte are still in re bellion. :But a careful reading notes the FASTOK.

MILK AS A FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 February 1915

MIILK AS A FOOD. Milk is a great food, yet very few havo even an approximate idea of its value in the family dietary. Very few tables are ever provided with milk for drinking purposes. For city people who pay 4d a quart for milk, it would not seem so much out of place to think that milk is too expensive to form a regular part of the daily fare, but with milk producers, to whom the coat i- only about a penny a quart, it is clear that the actual food value of milk is far under-estimated. I thinlk I am hitting the truth pretty closely when I say not one in twenty farmers' tables is provided with milk for drink iug purposes. in regard to Ithke uheapaes of milk, lot it be said that one and one-half quarts of average milk has just about the same food value as a pound of beefateak. This means that on the farm as much nourishmeont can be had out of 1 worth of milk as out of 74d worth of beefatoak. Of course people will always want some meat, but since milk his highly relished by most people...

BUT DARWIN WAS "ON." [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 February 1915

BUT DARWIN WAS "ON." When Charles Darwin was visiting the country house of his friend. the two ,I boys of the family thought they would play a joke on the scientist. So they caught a butterfly, a grasshopper, a beetle and a centipede, and out oi these creatures they made a strange composite insect. They took the cen tipede's body, the butterfly's wings, the grasshopper's legs, :and the beetle's head ,and they glued them togethler carefully. l'Then, with their new bug in a box, they knocked at Darwin's door. "We caught this bug in a field,' they said. "Can you tell us what kind oh a bug it is, Mr Darwin?" Darwin looked at the bug, and then looked at the boys. He smiled slight Iy. "Did you notice whether It huinuedl lwhen you caught it. boys?" hle askeld. "YTns," the yanswered, nudging oni another. "Then,' said Darwin, "it is a hum bug."

TRADE OPINIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 February 1915

TRADE OPINIONS. Probably the principal advantage the British Empire will reap fromn the pre sent war is the trade now being divert ed from the enemies' sources to Bri tish, including the oversea possessions. The occasion is one that has brought out much information relative to the possibilities of production already in the hands of our own peodple. Enquiries have elicited some very satisfactory answers, and the result will be, in the immediate future, a rapid rise of com mercial and productive trade. It may not be generally known, but there has been established in England a trade a:ln industry committee, whose duty it is to discover the wants of the British and Colonial markets for almost every article of use. The needs being found out, the question is then set abroad: Whlat can you produce? The result is an immediate arrangement whereby material assistance is given to the en couragement of trade and commerce, iri dependent of outsiders. It might be naturally thought that statistics...

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "''Rusticus.'") in. the current issue of the "Journal of Agriculture," Mr. A. E. V.

Lucerne is nio exception to the rule, and enthu siastic growers of this loegume have variously dubbed it "The kIing of fod iders," 'The greatest mortgage-lifter yet discovered," "The besot soil reno vator luowni to agriculture."

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 19 February 1915

TURF TOPICS. (By "Plemington.") Intending backers of Woorak for the Newmarket Handicap, as well as those who have already accepted liability on his behalf were pleased to hear at the end of last week that the chestnut had arrived safe and sound at Flemington. Hle canme over by water. Th'le trip was not exactly a smooth one, but fortunately Woorak suffered no in jury, though at least one of his equine travelling companions was not so lucky. For some reason, Weorak's Newmar ket chance is not, at time of writing, so highly estimated as was thile case a while ago, but so far as can be learned there is no good reason for the weak cning in confidence on tihe part of his friends. It is generally understood that Woo rak will be given an outing in the Futurity Stakes on Saturday next, but it is perhaps too much to expect himl to quite win this race, though horses do sometimes accomplish what on paper looks almost impossible. With the weight3 so much against him, Woorak will only need to "run...
