AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 16 May 1914

AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. A few years ago the South. Austra lian Government offered a prize for the invention of a stone-gatheriuar machine to be used on sjme of the barren lands that it was desired to render available for cultivation. The first competition was abortive, for no machines were entered. Again the prize was offered, but the two or three machines that were entered failed to do the work. Now, however, we learn (says "The Hardwareman".! that two Australians have invented an im proved rake and stone gatherer for clearing stony land. The new Idea was given a public trial recently, and did its work very successfully. The rake, which is triangular in shape, and works in snake fashion, leaves the stones in a straight row. It is followed by the stone gatherer, which consists of a large wheel, which picks up all the stones, large and small, and deposits them in the dray which runs alongside. The land was too stony to use for agricultural purposes previous to the trial, and yet, after...

THE BREEDING PENS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

THE BREEDING PENS. For the man who goes in solely for eggs, a forcing system of feeding is all right, but it is bound to be detri-~ mental to oreeding stock, and this is why pullets Intended for breeding purposes should not be given big quantities of nourishing soft food. If they are, it is • almost certain that many of the eggs produced will he in fertile; at least nome of them will .he weakly fertilised, and the chances of strflng, robust chickens greatly re duced. It is not the quantity of eggs, but it Is the quality of them from a breeding standpoint that those on'the lookout for early chickens must study. It is ten times more important to them to get fifty eggs likely to hatch out strong chickens than one hundred eggs that are almost worthless from a hatching standpoint.

TONICS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

TONICS. Tonics—that is, harmless tonics—• are good at times when given to ra tionally fed fowls. The healthiest •birds are liable to become run down, especially during the breeding season, and a little good tonic given at the right time is a pick-me-up. But to make use of tonics and spices indis creetly, with the object of securing high egg yields &s equivalent to thrashing up a horse so that the pas senger may catch his train. The ob ject in view may be achieved, but the poor horse invariably suffers. While Doubt stands still, Confidence can make a fortune. Good manners include not merely pleasant things said and done, but un pleasant ones left undone.

The Education Problem. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

The Education Problem. The Australian Catholic Federa tion is issuing a leaflet dealing with the system of State education in Victoria, and is also arranging for public meetings being held throughout the important centres of the State, in order that the Catholic educational claims may be placed before the general public. The Federation claims that a just system of- State education should be acceptable to the whole of the citizens who have to contri bute towards its cost. During the 40 years that the present system has been in A'ogue, Catholic tax payers have received no return for over £-1,500,000 contributed by them towards educational expendi ture. They have also expended in tho erection and maintenance of their own schools over £2,000,000, and they ask that for the secular instruction imparted to children ir» Catholic schools, an allowance should be made out of the moneys, which Catholic taxpayers have contributed, in order to provide free education for their children. The Federa...

POULTRY. WHAT IS A PULLET? [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

POULTRY. WHAT IS A PULLET? There seems to be a hazy notion among some farmers as to the exact meaning of the terms used to describe young and old stock. A pullet, strictly speaking, is a female under one year old. But in Australia we call a fowl a pullet until she has completed her first year's laying. Similarly, we call a male bird cockerel until he lias .at least entered well upon his first year in the breeding pen. It is not ad visable to breed from birds younger than one year.

DEVELOPMENT OF PULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

DEVELOPMENT OF PULLETS. 1 Those who are raising pullets for laying should note the food that is best for making the cockerels fit for market, and that which is best for de velopment of the laying pullets. The growing pullets Bhould be fed entirely with a view to quick developments of the frame and egg-producing organs; therefore, it stands to reason that the food which is best for the laying hen is right for pullets. There is nothing better for growth than milk, bran, a little cooked meat given constantly, and for the evening meal sound oats and wheat. Food should never be given in excess, for not only is the food wasted, but the digestive organs of the birds become weakened. Maize should be sparingly fed, especially during the summer months, as it has the tendency to cause internal fat, which is one of tue greatest draw backs to egg-producing.

NEW GOVERNOR-GENERAL LARGE CROWDS GREET SIR RONALD MUNRO-FERGUSON [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

NEW G0VERII0R-6ENESAL LARGE CROWDS GREET SIR RONALD MUNRO-FERGUSON To the booming of guns on H.M.A.S. Melbourne, the cheers of thousands of citizens, and with the airships of the Australian flying corps circling overhead, Sir Ronald Craufurd Munro-Perguson, the sixth Governor-General of Aus tralia, and Lady Helen Munro Ferguson, landed at St. Kilda pier shortly after 1.30 p.m. on Monday, and were given a hearty welcome to the Commonwealth. Although it was not a holiday, and the weather was somewhat threatening, there were large crowds of people in the vicinity of the pier and in the streets along which the vice-regal party drove slowly to Parliament House. Accounts which have been received of the new Governor-General and his wife have led to the expectation that they will bccome very popu lar in Australia, and the crowds cheered them enthusiastically as they passed along. Several stops were made on the way in order that addresses of welcome could be presented to the Governor-General...

INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

INFLUENCE. Our daily behavior, our manners and morals, have a power over oth ers that never ceases, nor can cease, until the poor waves of time break into nothingness upon the eternal shore. Therefore it is well that wo should have a clear view of that great force of life which we call "in fluence." The word is not ill-chosen. Influence is something that flows into you, whether you wish it or not, as the air around you will enter your lungs without your thinking about it. And as it is not needful even that you should know anything about your lungs in order that the air may enter tliem, so all vilenesses or sweetnesses may enter into your character by the influence of others, and do you either i good or evil; and whether you know you are being affected or not, you are being affccted by a necessary law of your being. Therefore "influence" is that power which one man exercises over another, modifying and deter mining his thoughts and actions, and that influence may be exercised with ou...

A FARMER'S CREED. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

A FARMER'S CREED. For this day I will do my best to do everything just right; to "be good and kind to every living thing I have any thing to do with; to foe thankful that I live in such a good world; to make that world a little bit better; to think some new thought; to read a page or two from some good book; to look up from my work long enough to see what my neighbor is doing so well; to strike some blow for the right; to get a liLtle nearer to the heart of my wife and children; and to ask God to help me make to-morrow a better day, a much better day, than this has been. A tip is diagnosed by a Scottish writer as a small sum of money you give to somebody because you're afraid he will not like not being paid I for something you haven't asked him j to do.
