THE DAIRY INDUSTRY IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 8 January 1915
THE DAIRY INDUSTRY IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Speaking at the twenty-sixth annual congress of the Agricultural Bureau of South Australia early in September, the Minister of Agriculture (the Hion. T. Pascoe, M.L.U.) said: "This sea son has given the dairy industry a serious set-back, from which it will take oeveral years to recover. 'The Dairy Elxpert and( his assistant (MAr. Apps) have had a trying tume diuulg the past tew months in connection with the removal of starrnng stock from tih North, and wish to recora my approciation of their work in tlus connection. Next season we hope to be able to make a start (under the supervision of Mr. Suter) on a schem6 for the systematfc testing of the milk ing quallties of our dairy herds. On New Year's Day an elderly man. named Patrick Carroll, who resides with his wife and family in Dandonong, was arrested on a charge of unlaw fully wounding. It is alleged that the father and son quarrelled on Friday, and that the former attacked the son with a knife...
SAVED BY A BET. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 8 January 1915
ofSAVED BY A BET. When Colonel Hay, notorious for his love of gambling and betting, was severely wounded in the Peninsular War, two brother officers came across his apparently lifeless body. "Poor Hay! He's gone at last," said one named Winsor. A faint voice came from the ground: "I'll lay you a cool hundred'-he's not" His death seemed only a question of minutes, but he continued, "Enter the bet, and you, lMarston"-addressing the other oflicer-"be -witness." He then fainted. When he was taken to hospital the surgeon told him the bullet could only be removed by saw ing through two ribs and introducing a child's hand to extract it, as forceps could not touch it. "The chances are,'' he added, "that you will die under the operation." "If Winsor will make his bet double or-quits 1'11 consent," said the colonel. Winsor agreed. "Now, saw away," said Hay. "1. 'on't die," And he did not. "But for. that bet," he said after wards, "I should be a dead man; it was my deterniination to win it tha...

gats um **=- *=* WHEAT AND THE WAR AUSTRALIA'S OPPORTUNITY. By A. E. V. Richardson, A:A., B.S( Agricultural Superintendent, in ''Journal of Agriculture." The largest, most violent, and'de tructive war in history hasbeen ragir ,,ithout intermission for over f6i months. It was at the outset gene ally admitted that, in the event of clash between the vast armies of Eu ope, the conflict must necessarily 1 of short duration, in view of the u: paralleled magnitude of the opposii forces. Competent military opinio however, has now declared that tl struggle will be fairly prolonged, ar it is possible that years may elapse b fore a final and lasting peace is d clared. In any case, the probab effects of the conflict on the demat for foodstuffs and on agricultural pr duction should be of more than passin interest. In this article it is intended to sul init data to show that the war, if pr longed, must inevitable lead to a mat rial and unsatisfied demand in Eurol for all kinds of foodstuffs, and ...

THE BEST WAY OUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 8 January 1915
THE BEST WAY OUT. An old negro parson in a Southern church was denouncing theft to his congregation, when he said: "If there is any member of this congregation who is guilty of theft, he had better repent at once and be saved." On his, way home.he was stopped by old Rastus, who had listened to the sermon intently. "Dohn' you think parson, that nex' Sunday will do jes as well as to-night to repent?" asked Rastus. "But, Rastus, why not repent to night and be saved, man?" "Well, pahson, it's dis way," explain ed Rastus. .' Iwant jes one mo' chic ken fo' to-morrow's dinner, an' I know wha I ken git dat chicken widout bein' caught to-night." "Well," said the parson, hesitating, "I don't know what to say, so I think I- will take dinner with you to-morrow and then talk the matter over with you.,

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 8 January 1915
TURF TOPICS. (By "Flemington.") A holiday crowd who looked anything but a people faced by a serious crisis, patronised Flemington on the first' of the New Year. All told, it must have been an average attendance for this particular time of the year, and besides there did not appear to be any great scarcity of money for betting purposes. With the holiday Extures at an end, attendances at sporting events will per haps diminish for a while, but there is not perhaps, any great reason to fear a serious slump. Ne?berr~'s name must now be a:lded to the list of iorses who have won both the Hopetouu Cup and Bagot Han dicap. Going to the front soon after the barrier rose, Newberry was never afterwards headed in the Bagot. It was the Caulfield victory repeated, though the "pla ings" underwent a change. The B'irnsdale colt is in great form just no'w, though it must of course be remmbered that as is always the handicap horses are at present of the ha ndicap horses are at present of moderate class...

HODDLE'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 8 January 1915
HODDLE'S CREEK. (From Our Own.i Correspondent.) Neither the Nar, the weather,'nor any other cause has been allowed to datilp our spirits on the Creek during the Ch'ristmas and New Year season. On Boxing night a very enjoyable evening was spent at the local hall. Song and dance made the evening pnss..n-eragioly andcL-oL toy qiiflic y. Among those cont;rib 'uting to the evening's . eatertai ment were Miss Stevens, Messrs Ewart and Holly, songs; M2r E. Kiddle, recitation. Dance music was provided by Messrs J. Burrows (vio lin) and S. Worly (accordeon), and Mr -I. Ewart ably discharged the duties of M.C. Nor were the chil dren forgotten, as during some of the iptervals such. games as Puss in the Corner, Oranges and Lmn ons, etc., were started for their benefit. This seemed to -make the adults grow young again, if one might judge by the wauy in which they joined in Oranges and .Lem ons. If this game is to become l, feature of our socials, we shrll have to enlargo our hall to make room fo...

FIVE RULES FOR FORTUNE [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 8 January 1915
FIViE RULES FOR FORTUNE 1.- Cultivate and perfect your ideas. Experiment. The world is eager for something new, which, however simple it may be, will save labor, or expense, or do things better. Let it be more convenient. or promote pleasure-reduce waste. People who handle things in every day use are the natural inventors of better things, and the natural capitalists of to-morrow. Read the splenlid advice that Edison gives. Learn the procedure as to pa tenting in the chief countries,-then secure your own legal monopoly for your rights by becoming a patentee. 2. If that workman or foreman, or your ingenious friend has produced a clever invention ;put him on the track of famous and wealthy inventors. Mr. F. Townsend, an editor, says of the "Inventors' Guide," "I am re commending it strongly-to friends. Best of the kind I .ave seen. It should do a lot of good. It is an incentive telling him where he can obtain the "in ventors' Guide." 3. For yourself obtain this book, which tells what ...

RAPE FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 8 January 1915
R APE FOR PIGS.. The Wisconsin Station has fed rape to pigs with uniformly satisfactory re sults. It was sometimes found neces sary to limlit the amount of other foods until the pigs became accustomed to the rape. As an average of two trials recently reported, it was found that 1 acre of rape was equivalent to 2,767 lbs. of mixed grain (2 parts maize and 1 part shorts). It is.believed that rapD will prove as valuable for pigs as for sheep. It may be fed to pigs with less risk, since they do' not bloat on it or scour if.fed properly. It will doubtless prove valuable as pasturage for brood sows -and young pigs, and seems espe. cially valuable for swine feeding dur ing. the hot summer months, because of its succulence and the relish with which it is eaten.
CROSS v. PURE BREEDS IN CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 8 January 1915
CROSS v. PURE BREEDS IN CATTLE. AS a general rule, most of us think that in the production of pure bred annuals, six crosses, as it .is termed, with pedigree animals give us this re- suit; in other words, if we start with an ordinary animal, and for six suc cessive generations use pure-bred sires, then the results will be essentially pure breeds in the end. That thi3' is mathematically so is easily worked out. I'or instance, in the first crosses, it a pure bred sire is used with an ordinary dam, we get' a half breed, that is to say, one half pedigree ,and one-hall non pedigree. ;At the second cross with a pedigree sire, again we get three-fourths pure, and one-fourth non pedigree. If we go on in this way, we will find that by the time we reach the sixth cross we have got purebred, and only one sixty-fourth reverts an animal that is sixty-three sixty-fourths to the non-pedigree an cestry. T'lhis, therefore, is practically pure, and registration societies wil' very often take fewer cr...
RESULTS OF BAD HANDLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 8 January 1915
RESULTS OF BAD AiNDLING. Mechanical injury to eggs, due to rough handling, causes a great loss to the egg industry each year, as well as a food loss to the consumers. Eggs that are completely wrecked (termed ''"mash ed" in commerce) are not only worth less themselves but they soil a num ber of eggs, otherwise good. \Vhen the shell is so broken that the conteunts are escaping the egg is termed a '"lea k er." Another class of eggs which have a technical term applied to them be cause of mechanical injury are the "checks." "Checks" are eggs the .membranes of which are intact but with cracked shells. The egg industry has to .contend with an enormous number of these. If the crack or defect is vis ible only when the egg is held before 9 candle or' when it is gently tapped against another sound egg it is called a" "blind check." This tapping of one egg against another is called ''click ing" by the egg men.-. '"Leakers" are thrown out at every stage of handling. The country mer chant usually...
