A Friend Indeed! [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 30 July 1914

A Friend Indeed! l.irown rind Green wore bosom friends, always ready to give each oili er a helping hand. The other day the Greens called at the home of the Browns. Brown, not expecting the call, was absent from the domestic camp. "Oh, Mr. Green," remarked Mrs. Brown, during the conversation, "I want, to ask you something. I was looking through my husband's desk this afLernoon, and found some of the queerest tickets you ever saw. One was marked 'Mudhorse, S to 1,' an other was marked 'Getaway, 10 to 1,' and so on like that. Whatever do you suppose they refer to?" "That's an easy one, Mrs. Brown," was the smooth rejoinder of Green. "Your husband is probably making a study of archaeology." "Archaeology!" was the wondering rejoinder of Mrs. Brown. "Do you really think so? How very interest ing!" "Yes," responded Brother Green, "those queer-looking tickets you found are undoubtedly relics of a lost race." Newspapers are chiefly occupicd in describing the pleasures of the rich or the cri...

THE JAPANESE SOLDIER. The vast influence which a victori ous array has upon the decision of fu ture battles is referred to by Mr. Stan ley Washburn in his book, "Nogi," which is a well-writen appreciation of the great Japanese soldier "To the privates of the Siberian steppes and the peasants drafted from the valleys of the Volga and the far off Neva this man Nogi was the in carnation of fury, the demon of war. His men were pictured by cam]) fires at night as fiends of blood and fury, who would stoj) at nothing, who eag erly sought death in their efforts to reach a hand-to-hand encounter with their foes. Again and again the story of Two Hundred and Three Meter Hill, where the Japanese sacrificed fifteen thousand men in order to gain an ob servation station, was told in the Rus sian ranks. The soldiers told one an other also how the Japanese infantry in one assault, exhausted and ammuni tion spent, refused to retreat, and remained and threw stones at their enemies until the last man w...

FOWL CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 30 July 1914

FOWL CHOLERA. This is one of the most dreaded diseases In the poultry world. It is caused by a germ and is highly con tagious. Once it lias established it self in a poultry yard, nothing but the most thorough treatment will pre vent the annihilation of the entire llock. Medical treatment is of litle or no avail. The best thing to do Is to kill all the sick birds at once, and to kill them in such a way as not to spread the infection with their blood, and to burn their bodies. The remain ing fowls should then be divided into Email lots of from three to five each, bo that when a bird is attacked by the disease the entire flock will not be exposed to it. Watch each one of ihe small lots closely and remove every sick bird. Clean and disinfect everything thor oughly, including small pens contain in;,' non-infected fowls, with a carbolic acid solution made by mixing one pint of crude carbolic acid and ten quarts of water.

HIS EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 30 July 1914

HIS EXPLANATION. A retired army officer tells a good story of a jobbing gardener, who, : whatever his faults, apparently lacks nothing in the way of aptitude for making excuses. "I'd had considerable trouble with my rough hands iij the garden," says the army man, "but when this honest c-yad specimen applied for the job of we ll-digging about ten rods of ground, 1 was taken by his appearance, and told him to come-in the morning. " 'Now I want you to take your time and dig it thoroughly, not merely scratch the surface,' I said. 'Never mind how long it takes, dig deeply.' And whilst I was standing by he car ried out my instructions admirably. "I left him at it quite certain that I would know if my orders were car ried out, for about six inches deep in tho middle of the plot I had buried half a dozen clinkers each the size of a brick. ?'When I returned he was past, the spot, but there, was no sign of the clinkers lying about. ."'Lend me your spade a minute,VI said, and straightway unear...

THE RAILWAY SLEEPER. The extraordinary peregrinations of an extraordinary sleepy man are re lated by. the 'Petit Journal.' He lives at Corbeil, about twenty miles from Paris; and visits Paris several times a week. He took the train back from Paris, fell asleep, and only awoke on being shaken .by the guard at Montereau (about seventy miles from Paris). Still dazed with sleep, he got into the wrong train-a non-stop express for Paris-promptly settled down to slum ber again, and only awoke when he reached Paris. He , was just in time | to catch the last *tr_.n back to Cor beil. He fell asleep again, and the train reached Corbeil and was shunt ed to a siding for the night. Still the man slept on. At 5.25 the following morning the train started- for Paris with the sleeper still plunged in sleep. He would have slumbered on until he got back to Paris had he not been recognised by a friend at an interme diate. station and pulled out on the platform.

LINCOLN'S EREVITY. President Lincoln's first political speech was made iu is;ii, at the age of 23, when ho was a candidate for the Illinois legislature.

FOR THE FARMER. BRANDING CATTLE. The great, waste of mono" entailed l.y our present methods of L-ram!ins cattle is a subject which ii'>rioi;ic:r;I)y crops up in the newspapers ami it I her trade journals. It never appars, however, to i;ei pus* this staj:e. for the same injurious method of apj;iy iiiK hoi irons to the best, part o: an animal's hide still continues. In this connection it is pointed out by the KiiKlish Fanners' Federation tlia' the difference in price of leather, were it not branded, is probably I'd. te 'el. per pound. Then, ai;aiu, raw hides, if not branded, would fetch id. per pound more, and, as these hides (>:-th from GO lb. to SO lb. the difi'eivii.-e in value is very appreciable.

MAIZE FOR COLOR. There are so-called i;^ix foods ua lore, but lie real tiling is a prop.-: j>n> porlion of maize green food ami lean laeat. Too often the high-prim! win tor egg proves but a pale, Ilabby af fair with colorless yolk and " atery white. This results from feeding without a sufficiency of given food and hard grain, espeeiall;, maize. Fresh green feud and maize will pro duce the egg with rich, golden yolk and firm white standing up around it -a thing of beauty on the breakfast table and a joy to the brenkfas'or. An alnmilai.ee of egg-making food fed ta the pullets in an appetising and di gestible form-so that largo quantities may bo eaten and assimilated is ne cessary to prolific egg production at any season, but. particularly in win ter. Succulent green food is especi ally essential for this purpose, being in fact one of the things that belong to the springtime with its flush of egg' production.

Yet lie was strange ly fascinated by it, it aroused all his artistic sense and love of the beauti ful. Nor was he blind to the value of those beautiful old rings that decked it with their glittering brilliants. It seemed to him that he hnd seeii one of them before in a famous collection of jewels. Surely the one with tho panel of stones had been part of the D'Alen cus treasures. Gilray could liavo sworn that he had once had it in his hand for in spection; that it . was something lie at one time had been, halt disposed to buy. "Sweating and trembling as he was from head to foot, lie could not keep these thoughts out of his mind.
