WOMEN IN POLITICS. THE FRANCHISE IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 15 June 1914
*WOMEN IN POLITICS. THE FRANCHISE IN AMERICA. The elections -in the State of Illinois last Apiril enabled more than 1,600,000 women to place themselves on the electoral register -and to vote. Though the figures for the rural .constituen' cies- are not yelt to. hand;. it is clear that the poll was heavy. In, Chicag> where over 460,00 men are registered as electors, no fewer than 217,000 wo men added themselves to the roll. It is reported officially that 73 per cent of the registered men and 72 per cent.: of the registered womren voted. The balloe paper was one of those. - huge "blankets," by which th American elector is bewildered, and involving not 6nly the choice- of candidates for doz ens of different offices, but also a re ferenidum decision- on no fewer than 12 separate issues. The candidates for office stood under seven different party labels, and the electors -were'appe ied. to, in addition, by half a dozen -social and philanthropic organisations.

FOOD FOR PIGS. GRAIN AND LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 15 June 1914
;FOOD FOR PIGS. GRAIN AND LUCERNE. American farmers have discarded the idea.. that it grain ration, princi pally maize, is essential in the fatten. ming.-of pigs. Besides being much more costly than a judicious mixture of lucerne; and .grain, an exclusive maize.food is less beneficial. MAn ex pert states that in the feeding of grain alone there is an' enormous loss in material. The. digestive organs of dif feient animals have the power of us. ing a certain proportion of carbohy.. drate material, combined with a certain amount of protein. If one*class of element is given in too great amount the digestive organs discard- a part of that surplus, and it goes off as waste. - This is the reason why scientists are always. talking and writ ing in favor of a balanced. ration, which means a ration that' will be the most completely used by an hnimltil. No man knows exactly what. a bal anced ration is for any animal; as ani mals differ slightly in this regard But by a long study of the matter, ...

WHEAT CULTURE. CONTROL OF PLANT BREEDING [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 15 June 1914
WIHEAT CULTURE. 0ONTROL1OF PLANT BREEDING Mr; A. E. V. Richardson (Agricul tural superintehdent) in. the course of a bulletin on wheat and its cultivation, issued by the departmhent of Agricul tinue, draws special attention to the- fabc that there are no. associations in this State for the control of plant breed ing. In other countries where agri cultural practice has become highly speciaised, such societies perform a very important service. Althouigh so cieties exist in Autralia for controlling the breeding and-registering the-' di grees of various breeds of - cattle, horses, sheep, and pigs, no societies exist for the exercise of a similar con trol in regard to plant life. llr. Richardson states that in a compara tively. ouing agricultural country like Austraia, the introduction of foreign wheat vaieties grown under conditions of climate not unlike our own is likely to lead to .-the acquisition of some use ful. varieties. In the-first year of their growth the yields of foreign var...

The appeal. I take it, is on the case already heard. and tunless a new trial were allowed, it. could noit be a test case. -I am, dc., COMMON SENSE.

NYAB d' DISTRICT ASSOCIATION Nyah v. Wood Wood. " The two leading clibs, Nyah and Wood Wood, metlat Nyah on :Satur day, bbthl clubs being represented by strong teams. The present strength of the ;-Wood Wood football team shows the wisdom of a club encouraging its yvoung players: For two years Wood Wood battled against adverse oircum stances, with the result .that this year the club can put into the field i really fine combination, which will 'ake a. lot of beating.

EGGS THAT CROAK. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 June 1914
EGGS THAT CROAK. That young unhatched crocodiles ut ter an audible croaking cry within the eggs in which they are laid is averred by "Knowledge," and it adds that the cry is so loud and distinct that it can be heard when the eggs are buried under one or two yards of sand. Dr. W. A. Lamborn tested the fact at Lagos, on the West African coast. He heard a croaking noise from be low a dry path, and, digging in the path to investigate the cause, he dis covered thirteen crocodile's eggs at a depth of about 18in. All the young crocodiles hatched out within half an hour of being dug up. So far back as 1899 Dr. Voeltzkow noticed that unhatched Madagascar crocodiles uttered a cry from the egg at a depth of two yards, and that any shock, as of a heavy tread, near the egg caused the baby crocodiles to produce this sound "with the mouth closed, as we produce hiccup sounds." In this way they inform the female crocodile when she visits the nest that they want her aid, .whereupon she scrapes the sa...

POINTED REPLIES.. It is .: ver amusing -sometimes to hear the ever-ready and:. witty replies made by some people to .the questionis they are :asked. " It is said by some to be an "extra .gift," for, no matter Swhere they are or how quick the quest tion:is given, they are able to give an .ariswer or offer an excuse. The-fol lowing are rather interesting: "Is your client pleading insanity?" "?I haven't decided," replied the law; yer: "He wants- to look -the ground over and see which is the eeasiest to escape from--the prison or the asy ,lum - ' - A clumsy carver= once sent a:goose into a -lady's -ap.-?-HIs- apology-: was 'better than his carving.

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 June 1914
LIVES LOST ;BY L`AUGHING; An accident,.said to be the most ex traordinary on record, occured at some oilfields in the Baku district of Russia, on the borders of the Caspian Sea. One of the big "gusher" oil wells became choked, and, with a view of blowing it clear, a number of iron drums full of nitro-glycerine were brought down by rail from Derbend, and deposited over-night in a large shed,, which was used by the men as a sort of canteen. The steward of this establishment, a Greek named Darios, opened one of the-drums for some reason best known to himself, and "decanted" a small quantity of the dangerous liquid into a long thin glass used for mixing vod ka. This he placed on a shelf behind the bar. Shortly afterwards there entered a workman named Borko vitch. who was famous for the bois terous hilarity of his manner, and es pecially for his loud, resonant laugh The, sight of nitro-glycerine in: a vodka tumblerso excited his risibility that he gave vent to a series of- sten torian -g...
