HOTEL FOR "DOWN-AND-OUTS." [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914

HOTEL FOR "DOWN-AND-OUTS." An hotel for "down-and-outs," which has just been opened in Chicago by Mr. Charles Dawes, a millionaire bank president, is filled every night, while many arc turned away for lack of accommodation. Mr. Dawes. erecte i the house at a cost of £20,000; in memory of his son Rufus, who was drowned. The hotel, the "Chronicle" says, provides a bath and a night's lodging for 2'/jd., while private rooms can be secured for 5d. The rules of the house are framed so as not to hurt the pride of any of the guests. Soup can be obtained for a penny, coffee at the same price, and other food in pro portion. The place is a godsend to Chicago's poor workers, many of whom are out of employment at pre sent. E,'ery night the place is storm ed by those who wish to get in out of the cold, a line of nearly 500 men awaiting entrance. The house ac commodates only 300, and the strug gles for priority of place in the line are pitiful to behold.

WHICH END OF A POST [?]LD BE UP. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914

>r WHICH END OF A POST 4^Bl:D «E UP- 'jM M It is a common belief among form ers that a-post will "last longer If ;8Ht in the ground the reverse of the way 11 grew in the tree,' in other words, with the butt end up. Accordingly, one sees many posts, especially end and gate posts, with the small end down. The supposition is that sap in a tree is always ascending, or at least that it is easier for the sap to go up than down. Conseuuej^b'i, is argued, turning a post upside down tends to prevent the rise of- water, !)elps to keep the wood dry, and, therefore, renders it less liable to de cay. As a matter of fact, sap . or water can flow in either direction with equal facility and the popular notion to the contrary is incorrect. , Careful experiments on the relative durability of post timbers have been made by the Ohio Agricultural Experi ment Station (says the "Scientific American") and the above questio:. r,'as considered. One fence in par ticular contained 1G6 black locust posts, 'o...

TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914

TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. Hundreds of calves die every yea; from one cause or another, and very oiten the farmer is at a loss to kuov> the cause of death. - Practical experi ence counts all the time. Mr. J. A. Bird, of Duranbox, Tweed River, N.S.W., Is a dairy fanner who, wheu a calf dies, wants to know the reason why. He had some calves die. He opened the stomach of one and founa a hard mass of hair like a. piece 01 felt and about the size of a tennit ball, which had collected through the calves sucking the ears of each oth er at feeding time, which is a com mon practice among young calves. Mr. Bird tried many means 01 prevention, and finds that a small quantity ot fresh cow manure mixed with separ ated milk, and allowed to stand in the BUI all day before being rubbed on the ears and bellies of the calves at feeding time completely breaks the bad habit.

VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914

VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." Large crops are not' always profit able crops, and the finest looking ani mal does not always give tlie largesu net return. For generations we have been taught and urged to grow biggev crops, unmindful of the relation ot in creased coBt to increased production. The value of increased production al ways depends upon whether or not It is economically secured, i.e., upon whether the margin of profit an acre Is increased or not. Another important factor always to be kept in mind is the relation which any part of the farm enterprise bears to the whole. A crop judged by it self might be profitable and yet the system might be unprofitable. For example, timothy hay might prove a .good crop In any one year, or even two or three years, but eventually the yield must decline, because a syBtem of farming with this crop alone .would not be likely to maintain fer tility, so that the system could not be called profitable. On the other hand, clover might not prove to be a ...

Ever • learning something more about nature's powers, and keep ing, .in view, the definite aim for re sults., Sucecssful farm-managers, like managers of great corporations, are men of. ability to think logically and reason correctly; they are men of self control, endowed with self-confidence, but willing to learn from others. No man can succeed in a great enterprise without making use of information given by others. One may arrive at conclusions, and achieve results in a different manner from anyone else of which he has knowledge, but at the same time he haB used information given by someone. Farming informa tion of use. now is of recent origin; new facts being ascertained every year, hence the successful farmers are those .who not only work diligent ly on their own farms, but make use of all the information they can ge...

GREEN MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914

GREEN MANURING. The object of green manuring 1b to furnish a supply of organic matter, and to collect nitrogen from the air. To get the best reBults from green manuring, it is necessary in the first place to supplement it by the appli cation of fertilisers. The necessity for the addition of nitrogen is depend ent upon the success of the green crop and on .the requirements of the following crops. For instance, if the green crop has grown well, potatoes and cereals on good or medium soil Bhould not require the help of any additional artificial nitrogen, follow ing a .poor green crop, it may be ad visable to give either potatoes or cer eals, especially oatB, the benefit of a top-dressing of lewt. nitrate of soda. Mangels following a green crop should have a light dressing of nitrate of soda. A small dressing of superphos phate Is advisable to increase the effect of the green manuring. For rootB and potatoes the soil should re ceive l%cwt. to 2cwt. per acre; cer eals a little less, say,...

The thought of the miserable condition of her 'boy, and the contrast between him and Sheila gave her untold agony, ith the exception of the ser vants, she was now practically alone in the house. Her husband would not come home for several hours, and she had plenty of time to write to her unfortunate boy. She had no money to send him. All her things were paid for by her hus band, and the few jewels that were left in the shape of rings and a dia mond pendant she dared not part with, knowing that Peter would ie mark their absence.

CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914

CHAPTER XII. Mrs. Bellairs very naturally spent ! a most uncomfortable evening. It is true that she was able to write'a re gistered letter to Ralph and to Bend off the eight hundred pounds, consist ing of Isaac Mordecai's dirty notes. She took it herself to the post-offlce, and was glad to find that she was in time to catch the Australian mail. For the present she could do no more for her darling. Could ahs erer do anything more for him again? She felt not. Her head ached, her cheeks were flushed and, going into her bed room, she desired her maid on no ac count t^ disturb her. Then. she.turn ed the key in the lock, hoping very earnestly that she might ■ get Bome sleep. But, alas! it v. s far from her. She was almost wild with worry and shame, and the longer she lay on her 'Ded the more terrified she grew. Mrs..

No Real Change. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914

No Real Change, A well-known M.P, at a dinner-party the other day said of a Bill that he disliked: "I object to this bill because it would accomplish nothing. It would make no real change. It would be like the case of the- actor and the canal boat-captain. "There was once upon ■. time an actor who, after an enforced idleness 01 two months, was lucky enough to secure an engagement in & town twea ty-five miles away. The case was a hurry-up one. The actor had to reach the distant town that night. If he failed to arrive, then his part would be assigned to some one else "Well, the man patched his worn boots, put his few belongings in a par cel, and set out in the early morning on foot along the tow-path. He had only a few coppers, hence the train was an impossibility. But after the poor fellow had.covered some six or seven miles, his boots gave out, blis ters rose on his feet, fatigue' over came him, and in despair he threw himself on the grass beneath a tree.
