The Supreme Test. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914

The Supreme Test. By A. G. Greenwood. "I'm no- Mr. Carnegie meself," con fessed Mrs. Knoyle, my landlady, ap6l ogetically. She, had asked huahbly if I could paye- doly a little on account. "An ere's a pipe; p'rap§ you might find a jodb in the adver-tise-ments," she suggested. "Good-night, Mr. Smith." "You're a brick," I. said-and she'd been tgo kind to me to lIet me feel shamed.-t my husky voice. "I'll pay somehow-or I'll. go. But I'll never forget, Mrs: Knoyle. The thirty shil lings. I owe you shall be a first charge n- what I earn." Thirty shillings! The sum meas ures things up. The gutter was very close. For six weeks 'I'd rehearsed in "The Ruby Girl" without payment walking on in the crowd. The play had "failed. In a week -the notices were. up. In a fortnight the company -all' but the lucky '"stars"-were stalking the Strand. I got nothing out of it. :Biut I met Eva-Eva Bradley.

WORK THE SOIL NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914

WORK THE SOIL NOW. All orchard soils should be kept well worked during the summer months. It is very essential that these should have an abundant supply of moisture during the whole of the growing season. The transpiration from fruit and foliage is considerable at any time but during the hot and windy weather the amount of mois ture which is required by a tree. and which is ultimately transpired from the tree, ,is very exceptional. - Excessive transpiration is often the cause of loss of young trees ant of now grafts. They are found to part with a large amount of moisture, and are not able to retain or obtain suf ficient for their nourishment; they I then very soon wither and die. The doil around these should be kept well stirred, they should also be given a good straw mulch.

PREPARING THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914

PREPARING THE LAND. Much has been heard during the last year or two as to' the value of explo sives for sub-soiling land intended to be planted with fruit trees and vines, and some authorities have made out, on paper, strong arguments in favor of their use. The lecturer in viticul ture and fruit culture at the Rose worthy College, South Australia, how ever, is doubtful if the work by such means can be performed as effective ly and economically as with teams and the ordinary implements . used for the purpose. . He considers that by adopting the usual method of sub soiling a more uniform layer of soil will be obtained to a depth ranging from 18 to 24 inches, and the cost of such work may be put down at be tween £4 and £6 per acre. On the other hand, he reckons that to secure equally satisfactory results with ex plosives-the cost will work out at £20 an acre. In a comprehensive article in "The Journal o8. Agriculture" Mr. Laffer· speaks highly of the English ditching plough, which is d...

SPORT AND RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914

SPORT AND RELIGION. "I do not bet," he said, "firstly, be cause if I did it would offend some members of-my congregation; second ;ly, because I do not think that it is I desirable; and, thirdly, because I think that it would be wrong for me, with my meagre stipend; to bet. I simply cannot afford It. I. appeal to* all 'sports' not to allow their sporty to drive them away from religion. If they can race and bet with a clean conscience, I do not think that God will be offended. There is nothing wrong with clean sport any more than with stock exchange speculations, and yet- many people get up and denounce the evils of gambling and never say a word about gambling on the Stock Exchange. I am glad to be able to say that horse-racing is improving, and I believe that it will continue to improve. I have much in common with sporting men, and'I am always pleased to see faces in my church which I have seen at the races. - It will be a sorry day for God and for the church when the feeling that re...

FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914

FLOWERS AS eMBLEMS. The recenit announcement in a con temporary that the Ulster men are trying to institute a demonstration, when every man, 'woman and child will wear a flower as a token of their aversion to Home Rule, reminds one how often flowers have been used as emblems. Since the leaders of the Yorkist and Lancastrian parties each plucked a rose in the Temple Gardens, the Lan castrian a red and the York a white, this flower has been a popular emblem. Apart from the fact that red roses are symbolical of love and white of purity, our national emblem is the rose;- the Legitimist Party of France formed the League of the Rose in imitation of -our Primrose League, while owing to Gladstone's fondness for white roses many Liberals once wished to make them-an emblem for their party, but the idea was not adopt ed. - The 'primriose; -it is said, was Bea= consfield's .favorite flower, and has been chosen by his followers, who formed the Primrose League, as an emblem, while in France the. ...

BOWLED OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914

BOWLED OUT. About once a month this paper re ceives picture postcards and other photos from Westralians abroad, -par ticularly from Egypt, showing the tra vellers on camel-back in the vicinity of the Pyramids and Sphinx. More than often we have been in-. dclined to doubt the bona-fides of some of those photos, as. the senders were known to have gone straight on through the Suez Canal to Europe, not. stopping at Egypt, as shown in. the pictures. Then we remembered that in Port Said are studios where you can have the photo of your head put on the bodies of tourists who have really been taken clqse to the mighty memorials of the ancient kings of Egypt. ILast week, however, one arrived that completely gave itself away. In it a 'well-known Westralian and his wife were seen seated on.donkeys standing close to the Pyramids and Sphinx. . - Close examination showed the bafik ground of desert, Pyramids, and Sphinx to be faked. in by the double photo plrocess, the picture of the tour ists and....

INSIST UPON BETTER ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 April 1914

INSIST UPON BETTER ROADS. Better roads are essential to -better living as well to the farmer's com fort and convenience. They are essen tial to the reasonable pleasure of his family. Good roads mark the stand ing of every community. The greatest objection to living in the country is the difficulty of getting about. You must get about if you properly market your crops, .if you are to keep your machinery in order, if you send your children to school, if,. you go..to church or attend meet ings. These are not little things. They are matters of vital importance. Bad roads impose the heaviest tax on a farmer that he pays, and he is cer tain to pay for it, whether he knows -it or not. He pays it in the'wear and tear of all his vehicles. He pays .it in the additional labor imposed upon his stock. He pays through the labor-or self-denial of his .family. Therefore, work for better roads as you 'would work to put out a fire in your barn. Study the best methods for building and maintaining bett...

THE NURSE ON NIGHT DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 10 April 1914

THE NURSE ON NIGHT DUTY. It is a truism that' one-half of the world does not know how the other half lives, and certainly few people comprehend the unceasing work in hospitals and infirmaries, where day nurses pass on their duties to night nurses, and night nurses report on the night to day nurses, with mono tonous exactness and regularity. -Yet it is this very regularity which makes night duty in institutions, hard as the work .often is, so much less try ing than the comparatively lighter task of similar work in private houses where, as a rule, a nurse goes from one acute case to another. In hospital, night duty is general ly undertaken under sutable 'condi tions, for a definite period. In pri vate houses, unless absolutely neces sary, it is natural that the relatives should desire to avoid the expense of a second nurse, in which case the one who is . single-handed is never free from anxiety, sleeps lightly, and, per haps, gets up more than once during the night. to attend to the p...

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.
