THE POULTRY FARM. THE IMPROVEMENT OF STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 October 1914
THE POULTRY FARM. THE IMPROVEMENT OF STOCK. As an instance of what may, 1. done in the way of improving stock. I may quote the case of a. smnal holder who took up poultry-keepin three years ago with a stock : white Wyandottes procured from r leading utility breeder. Becoming con vinced of the possibility of main taining a high standard of egg-pro duction by carefully selecting bird; for breeding, he took up this wor with enthusiasm, gained 'a high plac in a laying competition, and fount that by advertising in the poultr journals he could sell eggs for hatch ing during the spring at 3s. 6d. to 5s. per dozen, whereas by sending them to market he could only aver age is. per dozen at the same sea son Though having no more than half an acre of ground he has found it possible to keep a stock of about thirty laying hens, and breed sixty or seventy chickens every year. Without any extra expentiture, be yond the occasional purchase of . a well-bred cockerel for mating, he has realised consid...

THE FARM. POTATOES. PROMISING NEW VARIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 October 1914
- THE FARM. POTATOES. ?):PRQMISING- NEW VARIETY. All growers are on the look-out for a blight-resistant potato, and though we are somewhat diffident in advan cing the claims of any particular va riety out of the hundreds that make their appearance each season, it is well to note the reports to hand in recent English 'agricultural papers in regard to a new variety known as Vitality. This potate has been introduced by?. Mr. James Richardson, Old Leake, near Boston, .and some of the, Lin- colnshire growers-in which county over 80,000 acres were planted in po tatoes last season-have shown great faith in it. The "Mark Lane Express," reports as follows : It is said that this tuber has done remarkably well, and thoffgh not sprayed, has emerged through this season's wretched atmo spheric, conditions absolutely free from blight. It was in 1896 that Mr. Richardson, from an apple off one of Kerr's varieties, managed to rear the Vitality -tuber. It is a very big crop per, of good flavour, nice ...
EGGS FOR HATCHING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 October 1914
EGGS FOR HATCHING. In sending away eggs for hatching several methods may be .adopted. Special boxes made of wood, or good strong cardboard, ? fitted" .'With- com partments, -are sold for the purpose, and in such cases the trouble is ..e- : duced to a mimimum. A cheaper method, however, -is ,to obtain: a chocolate .or sopp box: large enough to hold a dozein eggs, and -to wrap each egg carefully:'in newspaper, finally wedging the eggs?, tightly in the box with more paper or hay, in such a way that they can not move. All boxes of eggs for hatching should be sent by passen ger train at parcels rates, fully labelled to denote the contents. If consignments of eggs are sent by train to distant markets they should be packed in wooden compartment boxes, such as can be obtained from any appliance manufacturer. These, boxes are returned to the sender, anid the percentage of breakages is small. It very often happens that new kid gloves are split the very first time they are tried on. This can b...

FLORAL SOCIETY. ANNUAL SHOW. Well Supported. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 October 1914
FLORAL SOCIE TY. ANNUAL SHOW. Well Supported.. The annual show in connection with the ,Queenscliff Floral Society took place on Wednesday, and. the committee rejoice that, from the. several points of view,s it was. suc cessful.. Thiis is gratifying, as at one time, principally because of the dry season and unsettled state of things, it. .was contemplated to abandon for this year. Then the idea occurred that, although there would probably be a. dearth of flowers, compared with previous years, the annual effort 'of the society may be helped by inviting residents to display other items of interest, and if possible to aid the Patriotic Fund through increased and additional interest. To that end the committee labored; with the result, as stated, the entire show can be pronounced a decided suc cess. Certainly, as. anticipated, there were fewer exhibits of flowers, but there was general response to the committee's invitation, and everything passed off splen didly. At the invitation of the ...
THIEVES IN BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 October 1914
THIEVES IN BUSINESS. The Diamond-merchants of Hatton Garden are among the wealthiest traders in London, and one would as soon expect to find pickpockets in the peerage as a gang of robbers of the worst type trading as diamond-mer chants in a dignified suite of rooms in Hatton Garden. Nevertheless, some time ago a rang of experienced criminals were in business in Hatton Garden as dia mond merchants on a considerable scale, and their reason for setting up in that particular line was that they had £70,000 worth of rough diamonds to dispose of, their entire collection having been stolen from a post-office safe in South Africa. It isn't often that criminals are so hold as the men of this gang must have been, for Hlatton Garden is per hlips one of the best-policed locali ties of all London, and considerable .ourage must have been necessary for them to have established them sc ives the:re, .with no more lawful reason than that they had £70,000 worth of stolen diamonds which they wished to ...
THE SPOONERISMS OF Dr. SPOONER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 October 1914
Tha' ~&OOIERISMS OF Dr. SPOONER. ------+----- There is probably no more famous man at Oxford than Dr. Spooner, the Warden of Now College, and his fame though peculiar, is likely to be last ing, for he has added to the gaiet.y of our nation by inventing a new form of humour, the picturesque transportation of initial syllables. It is said that he owed the inspiration to his first nurse; but it was not till he became an Oxford. don, and blandly announced at divine service that the hymn would be "Kinquering congs their tatles tike" that his peculiar genius found full recognition, and "Spoonerisms" gave a new facet to humour. A little later he con vulsed the congregation at morning chape.l by reading in the lesson of the day that, "it' is easier for a camel to ,o through the knee of an idol," and astonished an audience 6f working men by asking them it- they never felt "some vague yearning, some half-warmed fish, for a higher life." The undergraduates of "New" were' not slow to re...

In answer to his query, the maid :said that Miss Wedmore was at home, and she showed him into the drawing room, then proceeded to the dining room, where Meg. was busy mending table linen. "If you please Miss Meg, Mr. Hat ton wants to "see you," said the girl. Meg looked up and her face flush ed quickly. "He's in the drawing room, miss," said the girl, who scented a love af fair. "Very well, Jane, I'll see him." But Meg put the needle again into the damask, then drew it slowly out and folding the cloth neatly up, she left the room. For a moment she paused with her hand on the handle of the drawing room door, then she entered, and in another moment Lau rie had grasped her hand. "I'v...
