RABBIT POISONING. THE ART OF FREE FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 10 June 1915

RABBIT POISONING. THE ART OF FREE FEEDING. (By F. E. Allan, Chief Inspector). All animals or bii'dn that collect in "any numbers have amonset them a proportion that rule or '"boBs" the others. This is specially HO as regards the rabbit. When the " free " ia fnind, the stronger ones will take possession and hunt or keep the others a way till they have eaten their fill, and none may then be left to educate the balance. Anyone who will tuke the trouble to lie in hiding1 and watch the freshly-laid furrows, will see the stronger take possession and hunt the weaker away, The next day when it ia found that all the feed ia gone moat pejple merely relay the same quantity. 'Cliia is again eaten by the same ones that had it before, an i so on till the poison baits are laid, when, of course, only those that have been educated are killed. The others have not had a chance to acquire the taste, and, as is most likely the case, i! there are poison ed baits left in the furrows, it is just the same t...

RANDOM READINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 10 June 1915

RANDOM READINGS. (By Silas Snell). I have previously in these columns endeavored to knock into the thinking apparatus of our business people the fact that the credit system is the curse ?of the town and district. At last it has been decided to start a campaign against this system and establish a Traders' Association. Perhaps I ui«} be permitted to give a brief account of mv own experience of the rotten credit system. Personal experience is the best thing to go by. I was once a slave to this system myself, and while in this state 1 envied every dog in the street. Every time I went out for a walk I would meet a storekeeper or soaisono I owed money to, and I would always fancy they looked hard at me and said internally, " That fellow owes me a bill." Whenever I went into a shop for a pound of butter or a bit of meat, I would say in as oS-hand a manner as I could assume, " I'll pay that little account of yours next week. I was on tho downward path altogether. My system was to wait until...

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 10 June 1915

i I FOK WOKEN (By :,Ambro«ia«.") j Woman, as a housewife, has a jjood deal to put up with. Sometimes her lot receives too much condolence, that annoys her, even though she has boen condoling over herself. Sometimes the is rasped by hearing that men con demned to do cleaning as in shops or i warehouses, anile at her old-fashioned ways, as when the other day a useful hint to clean windows quickly was qualified by a pen picture of the man window cleaner laughing hilariously over women's slower ways, while he dashes something magic against the panes. (Personally I have never seen the man window-cleaner laughing: hilariously-one wonders again if his way is so good why the windows he superintends aren't a little cleaner tban -they are). Perhaps the worst trouble the modern housewife has to contend with js the man who says1 that labor saving machinery now preserves her from all work. This is not quite so. It is true things have changed within the last decade or so. Before that, ono might s...

OF RURAL INTERFST [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 17 June 1915

J OF RURAL INTERFST (By "Rusticus.'') Tlio monthly rainfall report covering May niakoi ploasanter reading than lias boon furnished by lliu.se reports for many months, past. Its chief point i.i the 1 ill 13 general rainfall about the middle of the mouth, lrom May 12 to May 18, which it is hoped may be re garded as terminating a. drought of 18 months' duration, and of an intensity without parrallel in our motorologicul history. Over southern areas show ers continued to fall until May 28, but tlioio rarely extended much beyond the Divide. The rain totals for the month wore generally larger over the eastern half of the Stato, and particularly gonorouu over the north east, so that the Murray and its tributaries were made to flow freely again, but the "built of the north-west, and inland parts of the Western District still show deficiencies, as compared with-the average, and in parts of the Mallee, tho shortage is somewhat serious.

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 17 June 1915

TURF TOPICS. It was quito expected that, embold .sod by the English example,'^ the 41 spoil sports" would agitate with a view to inducing tlio. Government to do avrav with horse racing for the pre sent.: The people who take this stand arc, it should not be forgotten, against the Turf at all times, and under any cirouuistaiices. Tliey, perhaps, are hope ful that if they gain their point to-uay it will prove the thin end of the wedge which .may later be driven right home. That is to say if tho "kill joys" gain an inch they will attempt to go much farther, their pet dream being the de struction of racecourses in every shape and form. But, so far as this extreme is concerned, they can go on nursing their dream, for it will never be real ised. To say that racing should ceaae in ' Australia, because something of the kind has happened in England is sheer nonsense. It would not stimulate ro cvuitiug one iota, but would certainly increase the unemployed- difficulty, whieh is, goodness knows,...

BEES TO FIGHT TROOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 17 June 1915

BEES TO FIGHT TROOPS. In the bush fighting in E-tst Africa the Germans anil their Mack troops placed hives of bees, partially stupefied by smoke, under li s on each aide of narrow tracks along which our troops must advance. Wires or cords lifted the lids when touched by the advanc ing troops, and swarms of infuriated bees, recovered from their temporary stupor, were let loose on the attackers. The failure of the attack at certain points is said to have been due as much to this onslaught of the "little people" as to the German rifles and machine guns, many men being 80 horribly stung on the fa e and hands as to be temporarily blinded or ren dered incapable of holding their rifles. Over 100 stings are said to have been extracted from one of the men of the Loyal North Luucashires. "Doctor, mv wife runs to extremes." "How's that"She has a hot tem per and c.ild feet."
