PERSONALITY IN MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 October 1914
PERSONALITY IN MILKING. We have taken opportunity at in tervals to direct attention to the in fluence of kindly treatment. .as I ap plied to milking cows, and to the fact that a better yield will °be ob tained from the same animal gently handled, than if knocked about and worried by dogs or ill-tempered per sons. Experiments recently communi cated to "Hoard's Dairyman" go even further. It would appear that apart alto gether from ill-treatment of any kind a cow will often respond more freely to one person than to another, the animals afiparently having likes and dislikes, such as occur so frequently in human beings. A heavy producing Holstein cow, in the dairy herd at the Kansas State Agricultural College, freshened early, in December, and was milked by man No. 1. This man had milked her for several weeks, when he left for a vacation. Man No. 2 took charge of the milking. The cow re sponded to his milking, and gave as nmuch as 81.4 pounds of milk per day. Her highest day previous to ...
CALF REARING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 31 October 1914
CALF REARING. The Royal Agricultural Society of England has been conducting some experiments on the rearing of calves, and has issued a report of the re sults. These experiments were carried out with several batches of animals, divided into five groups, and over a period of nine weeks. The different kinds of food were as follows : Cod-liver oil and separated milk ; whole crushed-oats with separated milk. The whole result of the experi ments may be summed up in one statement - that the crushed oats and separated milk gave the best re turns. This is very instructive in deed and is all in favour of the use of home-grown food, as both the oats and separated milk may, be pro duced on the farm. The present writer, has just been informed by one of his neighbours' that the best food he has discover ed for the growth of calves after the first month of milk feeding is over, is a mixture of oats and whole beans. The beans are only partly chewed and regurgitated and chewed over again in the ord...
A GOOD CATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
A GOOD CATCH. "--4-+- The latest stock exchange eatch is Suriously and strangely effective .nd because of the amusement it af fords is worth trying on a friend who has not yet read this. A bro ker, putting three half-crowns on the palm of his hand, says to a jobber, "Now, look here, how many coins do you see ?" "Three," replies the jobber, after careful consideration. "Without casting any aspersion on your veracity," rejoins the broker, "I say there are four. . . Well, look here," he continues, re-arrang lag the coins, "'how many are there now ?" "Three," stoutly declares the jobber, after assuring himself that there has been no palming. "I say there are four," maintains the broker. "Will you give a guinea to the unemployed fund if I'm wrong ?" "'No, I won't ; can't afford it." "All right," says the broker, pocketing the coins, "it's off, then." This is naturally too much for the cur-. iosity of the jobber. "Well, go on; what's the trick ?" he says. The three coins are again produce...
WHENCE THE WHISTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
W 3E CE THE WmBISTLE. ------- Seventy-five years ago the steam whistle, which is mdtaphorically shrietýing the ears off excursion ists on holiday bent. was unknown. In those days engine-drivers were l.rovided with a small tin horn, which they blew as occasion demand ed. Apparently, however, they did not always blow loud enough, for in 1S33, despite the warning blast, a train ran down a farmer's cart, and utterly destroyed one thousand eggs, a : hundred pounds of butter, two horses, the vehicle, and the dri ver. When the bill for damages was presented to the railway com-, pany the managing director sent for George Stephenson. Stephenson pondered. Then he visited a musical instrument maker, with the result that he constructed a horn which screeched most ter ribly when blown by steam. And successive generations have toned that horn down into the familiar whistle of to-day.
ADVENTURE OF A BABY BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
ADVENTURE OF A BABY BOY. --- ---- .A person who lived some years in South Africa tells the following story : The -infant son of one of the Dt-tch settlers had strayed away. After some time a search-party dis covered little footprints leading. in the direction of the bush. Following up these, they came upon a large o;:en apace, at the farther side of xhich they discovered the object of their search sitting- !lugging a little wooden doll and munehing a piece .of bread-and-butter. Before they could make their way through the thick, tangled under growth,-a large lion sprang into the clearing. The little boy, far from being frightened, ran to meet the lion, holding up the bread-and-but ter, and said; "Take a bite, dog gie." The father stood powerless to move or speak through fear, expect ing each instant to see the child crushed under the liofi's paw ; but instead of doing as he dreaded, the lion turned himself over and lay on his back at the child's feet, look ing up in his face as a ca...
TROUBLE IN CONVERTING THE ISLAND OF LAGILOLO. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
TROUBLE IN GONtVELRTING THE ISLAND OF LAGILOLO. "Yes," said the beachcomber, "we 've had a lot of trouble in convertin' our island. One misfortune and an other happened to the missionaries by unforseen circumstances. Of course, I'm only speakin' of events that took place since I've been king of the Island. It was in 1865 on the ship Gineral Jackson that I was put in an open boat on the Pacific Ocean, through the schemin' of the Rev. James McBeaser. I was a circus clown and a Baptis'. The ship had stormy weather, got delayed, and begun to run out of water and food. The Rev. James McBeaser was a board, goin' to the islands as a mis sionary-a Sandemanian missionary. He organised a revival, and they all came into it but me, which I couldn't do, as a Baptis',. We kept on havin' bad weather, and he told the crew that we couldn't expect good weather as long as there was anybody on the ship that wouldn't. jine the revival. That turned the sailors against me, and when he advised 'em to turn ...

SUNDIALS. THEIR ANTIQUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
SUNDIALS. -4--+--- THEIR ANTIQUITY. The, antiquity of the sundial is not the least of its charms. Primitive man obtained some idea of the time by placing a stick in the ground and noting how the shadow fell. The an cient Greeks had their sundials, and among the Elgin Marbles in the British Museum is to be found l four-faced dial unearthed at Athens. The Romans adopted sundials from the Greeks, and Cicero has placed on record the fact that he possessed one at his villa. The general adoption .o sundials throughout the civilise world was due to clerical infuence~ for the early Popes ordered that sun dials should be placed on various churches, in order that the people could ascertain the hour of the day. The use of sundials, in England mad be said to date from the introdu? tion of Christianity. The Venerablf Bede specially interested himself ii the lmatter, and every monastery hbi its sundial. After a time every maw of substance boasted one, and the old prints depicting Elizabethan gard...
PUBLICATIONS. Can Germany Win? Dr Fitchett's Views of the War. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
PUBLICATIONS . - -4--- ---- Can Gerfmany Win? .Dr Fitchett's Yiews of the War. Oine of the best contributions to the lit erature of the war is made by-Dr Fitchett in.'Life' for November. Treating the subject under three main sections, he shows very clearly, first, how the chal lenge was met; second, how the whole campaign is moving; and, third, the story of the battles. And his final judg ment seems to be that Germany, in spite of her magnificent fighting machine, and her Mwonderful organisation-to both of which tribute is paid-is foredoomed to failure for reasons which he sets out plainly and very cleverly. Dr Fitchett's review of the war's pro gress is illustrated with many pages of fine pictures and accompanied by several special articles bearing on the same sub ject. But, while 'Life' more than keeps abreast of the imported magazines on the -wvar, its general reading is not allowed to suffer; and such articles as 'Out of the Jaws of Death,' by Sir Douglas AMawson; 'How I Flew Ac...
A PECULIAR POST-OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
A PECULIAR POST-OFFN.CE. Sailing vessels still go round Cape Horn, just as they did in the six teenth century, navigators finding it very difficult to make the winding passage through the Straits of Ma gellan. Sometimes, however, on account of stormy weather, ships have to hover off the Horn for the greater part of a month. Cape Horn is a big mass of rock, which rises abruptly from the sea and forms a small island. Upon one of the ledges of this rock there stands a covered barrel. Ship esptains who arQ passing around the Cape send a boat ashore at this point, if possible, to take from the barrel whatever mail matter is going in their direction, and drop in it whatever is desired shall go in the opposite direction. This mail box is the world's most southern oost-offce, a ead it does not need a Sostmaster.

Sunday Corner. Empty Conversation. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
Sunday Corner. Empty Conversation. Christian conversation should not be mere jargon of empty, idle ~rords. There are many people who talk incessantlv and never say anything worth repeating or re membering. They never give any comfort to those who are in trouble. They never incite those who hear them to anything noble or good. Their words if gathered up would be millions of blossoms, and not one handful of fruit; tons of sand, and not one shining sparkle of gold. Surely such conversation is not worthy of immortal beings, children 1 of God and heirs of glory, on their way home to glory,

First Aid. aQUEENSCLIFF CLASSES. '-'Last week Mr E. J, Fairnie, of Geelong, visited Queenseliff and intterviewed 'some of. our young townsmen on the advisability of . forming a First-aid Class. The result showed that our young men evince a desire to participate in this grand movement, and we hope it will not be long before classes are established here. Mr Fairnie has promised to lay the matter before the superintendent of the Geelong branch of the St. John Ambulance Association (Mr A. M. Collins). We have no doubt that if any as sistance or information is required Mr Collins will readily supply it. In Geelong the idea has been taken up very enthusiastically, great in terest being shown by those attend ing the classes. Various bodies, such as lodges, unions, electric light employees, mill employees, Y.M.C.A., A.W.N.L., &c., have "formed classes for these interesting studies. Should any information be desired regarding First-aid it will be readily given by Mr A. M. .Collins, s...
Recipes. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
Recipes, Cold cream is often useful for rough. ness of the skin,. A very good recipe foe making it is the following :-Take a quar ter of an ounce of white wax and shre4 it into a basin, with one ounce of almond *il. 'Place the basin by the fire until the wax is dissolved; then ,add very slowly one ounce of rosewater, little by little, and meanwhile heat smartly with a fork, to make the water incorporate, and con tinue beating till it is accomplished; then pour into jars ready for use. Veal Broth is very nourishing, and in generally most acceptable to invalids. Take two pounds of kntackle of veal, cut the meat up small, and break the bone in pieces. Place it in a stewpan with half an onion, half a head of celery, three long pepper and a tiny piece of lemon peel. Pour over all three pints of cold water. Set the stewpan on. the firr and let it simmer, skimming it carefully all the time. After cooking five or six hours strain into a pan, and leave it till cold. Remove the fat, and when ...

SOME PLEASANT TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 November 1914
SOMDE PLEASANT TATTLE. "Some men," says a writer in a iiome journal, in disclosing 'tricks' of the furnishing trade, 'can take new furniture and make it look as if it was made a century ago.' But there is nothing remarkable in this. An intelligent child .can do the same. "I believe," says Mr. William Poel, "'that in 300 years Mr. Bernard Shaw's writings will still interest people." Mr. Shaw himself, however regards Mr. Poel's estimate as an absurdly moderate one. "All a woman asks is to be loved," says a poet. Then all those tales about her wanting new frocks, motor cars, and unlimited jewellery ;are a r~Me slander. "Take away woman," says an ar cent "votes-for-women" supporter iq one of the dailies, "and what would ollUow ?" Why, man, of course. An Irish M.P. is well remembered for his first and only oratorical ef lort in the House. On rising, he de !elared with due solemnity. "Mr. Speaker, I cannot sit still here and keep silent without rising and saying a few words." 'I know now,...
