THE VALUE OF THE PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
THE VALUE OF THE PIG. [ "I do not know of a more powerful i agent in transforming poor land into 'rich," states a writer in the "Agricul tural Gazette," "than the domestic pig. Give a man a few acres of poor land (not bad, but poor) and plenty of pigs,- and I venture to say that there will be a more or leBS sudden conversion. The pig is in itself pro fitable, but the manure It leaves ba1 uuiu iB 01 even greater value to tne feeder than its' increase in weight. Pigs are the best kind of stock for a man who has a small tract of poor land, and there , seems to be no limit to the improvement which may be effected by and through their pres ence."

TREATMENT OF CRAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
TREATMENT OF CRAMP. une or tne common complaints in pig-raising is cramp. The pig is ex ceptionally subject to these muscular affections, which are sudden and pain ful. Cramp is of varying intensity. There is the prickly feeling due to bad circulation, the cramp from re maining too long in one attitude and the cramp which consists of muscular spasms. Castor oil, Epsom salts, and nitrate of potash are useful medicines.
REAL EQUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
REAL EQUALITY. The wooing had progressed splen didly. It had even progressed to a point where she had been won—that is, ostensibly won. If she proved to be a truthful girl, she would in time be his wife. If she were not truthful —well, no man wants a wife who is not truthful. That's the way some as he drew'TjerUoIoser"fo~iffi&QBe~\t^Wi3-" pered: "And when we are married, dearest, we will have the happiest home in all the wide, wide world!" "Yes, George," she replied. "There can never be a harsh word in our home." "No, George." "And when I come home tired and worn out with work at the office and the worries of business, you'll be kind to me?" "Y-e-s, George." "I knew you would. You'll soothe tne and put me in better humor?" "V-e-s; but,-1 say, George!" "Yes, dearest." "Why shouldn't you do a little of this yourself?" "Why, darling " "Yes, that's all right. But to come right down to business, as papa says, why shouldn't you also be kind to me when things go wrong? I don't want...
WATCH FOR DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
WATCH FOR DISEASE. when stores, or even stud pigs, are brought to the farm they should he dipped or sprayed, as a matter of or dinary precaution against the intro duction of vermin or disease. As an additional precaution, a quarantine pen should be used, especially if epi demics are prevalent. Strange pigs should not be mixed with the herd until their new owner is himself satis fied that they are not bringing trou ble with them.
THINGS SCIENCE CAN'T EXPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
THINGS SCIENCE CAN'T EXPLAIN. How sunlight turns grapes into sugar. Why the sap of trees is not frozen in winter. " Why is it that many microbes can he boiled and still live. How a bat can see to catch mos quitoes on a pitch dark night. By what sense a pig eon finds Us way home from a great distance. How the pain of a cut is carried by the nerves from the finger-tip to the brain. How seeds sown in the autumn re sist the frosts of winter and germin ate as soon as spring comes. How a chicken ten seconds after coming out of its egg knows how to balance itself on its feet, run about, and peck food. How is it that, if the earth is as old as we have every reason to believe, the radium in it has.not yet given off all its energy, but seems to be dis charging just as much as it ever gave.
TELEGRAPH [?] BAROMETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
BAROMETERS. A phenomenon with which most peo ple are familiar is the curious noise made by telegraph wires. It is ac cepted as ordinary, and yet there has been hitherto no final explanation. Many and varied are the reasons giv en, but generally it is ascribed to the action of the wind, which is suppos ed to play upon the wires as upon the strings of a harp. Thin RYnlnnatlon. however, cannot ■be accepted, because the noise is of ten heard, and In many instances at its plainest, on perfectly calm days J Another explanation frequently pro posed is that the "tunes" tre caused by the effect of alternating cold and heat, which, by contracting or expand ing the -wires, causes them to give out a sound that is accordingly flat or sharp. This second theory, however, is also inadmissable, because, in ordor to pro duce such differences of tone, a varia tion of temperature such a9 is never experienced would be necessary. What, then, 3s the real reason? A third theory, which seemB to be about the...
LIME FOR THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
LIME FOR THE SOIL. : The nature of the lime used de pends upon the purpose for whioh it is required. Lime is applied to the soil for the following objects:—(a) To lighten heavy clays; (b) to sweet en sour soils; (c) to supply plant j.ood. In the first ease, either unslacked lime, (powdered quicklime), or quite freshly slacked lime is the most ef fective, the action on the clay being both of a mechanical and chemical nature, breaking up the colloidal clay particles when the lime is slacked in contact with the clay. Slacked lime is much less effective, as the action is only a mechanical one, as there is i no combination of the lime with the I silicates of the clay.

John Obeyed. Just prior, to the balloon ascent, which formed one of the chief events at a big gala and flower show, a deter mined little woman elbowed her way through the crowd towards the car, and began to make a scene.

"My dear good lady," said the aero naut, soothingly, "your husband ia quite safe in my hands., I'm no nov ice, you know. I own quite a number of balloons!" "I'm not talking about balloons!" snapped the lady decidedly, "I'm talk ing about husbands. He's the only one 1 have, and he's not going up in that thing! Come out, John!" And John came out.

The Proper Thing. Mistress—"I hope I didn't disturb you and your lover when I went into the kitchen last night! Cook—Not at all,mum! I told him you was my chappyrone! "Does the baby talk yet?" asked a friend of the family of the little bro ther. "No," replied the little brother, dis gustedly. "He don't need to talk. All he has to do is yell, and he gets everything in the house worth hav ing." What's the good of a woman If you can't fall In love with her?

Sweetly Innocent. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
Sweetly Innocent. Mr. Sydney Buxton has some amus ing things to say in his recently pub lished "Book of Fishing Stories." "Why," he asks, "is it that day af ter day a single salmon, and one only, is caught? Is it that among so many fish covered by the fly there is in one pool one llsh more active, more enterprising, more alert, and more intelligent than the rest? Or is this particular fish, so to speak, the village idiot?" Mr. Buxton tells a story of a fisher man who, after a successful four hours' tussle with a large salmon, came back in triumph and related the story to his aunt. Like all anglers he laid wearisome emphasis on the time occupied and the muscular ex penditure. "But, my dear Tom," the aunt re marked at last, "why did you hot cut the string and get rid of the brute?"
LADIES' COLUMN. FOR-MARRIED-FOLK. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
LADIES' COLUMN. FORrMARFttED-.rDLK,; Society requires that, whatever their private ^relations,.- husband and . wife face the world as a unit, harmonious, and with interests identical. One thing good form imperatively demands—that by no mischance, 110 loss of self-c ntrol, shall family dis cords be revealed to strangers, chil dren or servants. An uncontrolled voice is always unmannerly and undig nified. A readiness to give up in little things is the most tactical appeal pos sible for a return of courtesy at other times when the matter may be of im portance to us.
THICK OR THIN SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
THICK OR THIN SOWING. The quality of seed which should be sown depends on a., number of cir cumstances, such as character of the soil, its moisture, freedom from weeds,, size, germinating power, age of.the- seed, and again on the time of sowing, the nature of the plant, method of sowing, depth, etc. All these factors have to be considered; but in general we think it may be said that seed is sown more often too thickly than the reverse, especially when the operation 1b performed b& hand._ It . is a waste of seed, and, moreover, detrimental in so far as it tends to produce weakly plants, sub ject to. disease, and also to produce cereals that "lodge," a great source of loss to cereal growers. The age of the seed is an important factor. Old. seed_ has lost some of its germinating power, so new seed , should be used. Grouchy Parent: Nb; sir, my daugh ter shall not-marry-ytiu! Suitor: But- your daughter, wishes to, sir, and she told me just now- that you would' deny • her--nothing...

SMALLPOX IMPROVES THE MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
SMALLPOX IMPROVES THE MEMORY. One of the most recent scientific discoveries is that memory is largely, a matter of the state of the blood. A Pdris specialist has published some results based on several years' study of his patients, his conclusion being that those with the worst memories are people who suffer from, anaemia or chronic dyspepsia. Most people suffer to some extent from one or other of these complaints, and it is declared that the people who can never remember what they were doing last Tuesday evening always im prove under a course of iron or pep 1 some cases an L^inred smallpox patiee-'engthening .the f ~ jwutstrrag pi ivories" greatly Drugs, too, were foijid to have* dis tinct effects on tlie.-wffmory, .Doctors have known for som&^years that bro mide, which is often prescribed for nervous restlessness and insomnia, Is apt to enfeeble the memory if kept on too long.

BILL BONG'S BENEFIT. AN AMUSING STORY OF A STRANGE DISAPPEARANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
BILL BONG'S BENEFIT, j AN AMUSING STORY OF A STRANGE DISAPPEARANCE. By Scudamore Jarvis. It seems quite the fashion nowa days—said Private Coles as he look ed up from the newspaper he was usins as a table-cloth, lor blokes to suddenly disappear and leave no traces behind 'ein. Traces are about the only things they don't leave behind though—he went on—for if you read between the lines in these disappearance cases you'll find that when the feller did the silent get-away act he left at home a wife and six kids chargeable to the parish, a large crop of tailors' bills, or 'arf a dozen young ladies, all of whom he'd promised to marry, When you think over these things you come to the conclusion as a rule that the disappearance ain't so marvellous as you fancied and you can understand why the feller takes such a lot o' find ing. Talking o' disappearances remind3 me ' Bill Bong what enlisted in '01, and did three hectic years in the regi ment afore what I'm going to tell ydu about happened. ...
Youth. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
An old man said to a youth: "My boy, ivhen I was your age, I thought, like you, that I knew it all; ■but now X have reached the conclu sion that I know nothing." The youth, lighting a cigarette, an swered carelessly: "H'm! I reached that conclusion about you years ago.". Wife (reading letter): Mother says she'll pay us a viBit soon, George, as si e's dying to see us again. Hubbie (magnanimously): It seems a pity she should have to drag all this way. Tell her we will get some photos taken. Dancing m st have been invented by some ingenious person who want ed to take someone else in his arms and hadn't the right.
PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 21 May 1914
PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT. One o£ the greatest prejudices with which electric lighting' has had to contend is the assertion that it is in jurious to the* eyesight, and the latest scare is that the ultra-violet rays of the tungsten lamp are harmful. The mere sound of the word "ultra-violet" seems to convey a terrifying impres sion to some people, who, perhaps, conjure up visions of mysterious mal adies analogo s to those which at tacked the early experimenters with the X-rays. All this alarm Is, fortun ately, unfounded, for the emission of ultra-violet rays by some of the latest types of metal filament lamps merely increases their resemblance to the sun as a source of illumination. The pow erful new lamps, however, can be in jurious to the eyesight, in the same way as any other illuminant, by caus ing strain owing to glare. More than ever nowadays the science and art of illumination require to be carefully observed. In the days of the candle and the early gas burners the strain on the ...
