SOME BULL'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914
SOME BULL'S EYES. How the weeds do like the warm days after rain. Hit 'em a clip the minute they stick up .their heads. A rickety fence is a standing invita tion for stock to break through. A staple or a post in time saves temper. It is just as good a thing for the farmer to hang up his barn broom as it is for his wife to do so with her broom. The farmer who makes drudges of his mother and sisters won't worry be cause his wife splits the kindling ami carries in the coal. The man who wins is the man who can turn everything, even to an old tin can with a hole in the bottom, to some account. The only certain way to find out what sort of cows we have is to test them. Sometimes the results are very disappointing and we may wish we had not done it, but in the end it is greatly to our advantage. The limitations in farming are few er than in any other occupation of which we have any knowledge. The soil is a complex substance, but it has almost unlimited possibilities, when managed by skille...

SNAIL'S REAL PACE. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914
SNAIL'S REAL PACE. "At a snail's pace" is a common expression, and usually signifies a very slow speed. But what do you suppose is the actual pace made by a snail in travelling? We can give it in accurate figures. One foot in four minutes, or at the rate of one mile in sixteen days, if travelling continuously. These are the figures given by Geo. Zalinizer, a civil engineer, taken from actual observation. A short time since Mr. Zahnizer was waiting for a train at a country sta tion. 1-Ie had nothing in particular to do, and "killed a little time" by tim ing a snail which was creeping along the ground. That snail travelled just exactly one foot in four minutes. Mr. Zah nizer has figured out that it would re quire sixteen days for that snail to move a mile. Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne, report that prices have been ruling high. During the first week of this month they obtained up' to 73/2d. per pound for porkers (prime small), and for prim...
THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914
THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. . According to Mr. Gilbert, author of "Fortunes for Farmers," spiritless Hodge is to be supplanted by an alert blue-smocked engineer, who will re ceive good wages and do the work of ten men, and be worth a hundred. If this be the type of man who is to do the tillage of the future, he will re quire a standard wage as will enable him to live in a good dwelling, and thus the rural housing problem will soon solve itself! Mr. Gilbert has evidently a warm heart for small holdings, but pertinently says, "they cannot be established anywhere—only on better soils can they succeed."

VIM OF THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914
VIM OF THE FARMER. The farmer's vim shows in getting at the %vork the minute it is ready. Shows, too, in the way he pushes that work. One day on and two days off point to failure in the near future. Vim shows, also, in the pride a man puts into his work. Some men show by their very faces that they love their work and are hound to do it just right. They are the ones that come out at the head of the heap. Vim keeps a man's heart bright and cheery. Takes a pretty good man to whistle just as nheerily when it rains as when it shines! The man with true vim in his heart can do it, and he will do it. Any men with vim down your way?
Lands Acquisition Act. Mr James Cameron, M.L.A., Criticised [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914
Lands Acquisition Act. Mr James Cameron, M.L.A., Criticised At the last meeting of the Tambo shire council, held on Friday, I2th inst., Mr Cameron wrote, in reply to council's re quest to bring in a Bill to abolish the I,and1; Acquisition Act, that he had ob tained the shorthand notes of the recent deputation arranged by the council on the subject, and had handed them totheOr bost shire council to print in pamphlet form and 'nave distributed, and that this was now being carried out. He was ar ranging to take whatever action he tho.igl t ne.essary when Parliament meets. Wiiattver action he had taken had been with the f ill consent of the party, and hav ing brought aboui the unloading of Crown lands ; rt;l the State making advances to settlers on closer settlement terms, he was not likely to stick at this. The President (Cr Price) could not un derstand M- Cameron's action, but anyone knowing M* Cameron as he did could not i be surpri;eJ. When the recent defuta-j lion waited on the Min...
HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914
HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? "We get from the land what we put into it. If we build permanently we will be sheltered in later days; i£ we plant wisely we will read the content ment in the shade of the next genera tion. If a farm is regarded as merely a cold, money making enterprise we miss the harvest of good living in later years; but if we regard the farm as a home and cultivate those essen tials of satisfying living, comforts, trees and flowers, and things of beauty we reap a perennial harvest in the ripe years of old age when such things como to have a value far be yond grains and fat beasts.

WEIGHT OF SILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914
WEIGHT OF SILAGE. Silage always loses some in weight, due to evaporation from the top, but the main part of the settling is due to the simple packing down of the silage in the silo. Ordinary silage weighs about 45 pounds to the cubic foot after it has settled in the silo. A silo 12 x 24 feet holds approximate ly 55 tons, or 110,000 pounds o£ corn silage.

FEDERAL ELECTIONS. The Gippsland Seat. Mr Wise Opens At BratSien. The president of the shire, Cr D. H. Price, presided over a large attendance of electors at the Mechanics'- hall lsst Monday evening, when Mr G. H. Wise, who is standing as an independ ent liberal candidate, addressed the meeting. After being'introduced by the chairman, Mr W^ise explained that the first action which the Cook government did after its re turn about 12 months ago was to elect its speaker, and this was done by the unanimous vote of the House. To the speaker's mind, the Government had a splendid opportunity of introducing various non party measures which had been waiting for some time to be dealt with.' The uniform insol vency law, weights and measures bill, insurance in all its forms, the development of the Northern Territory (except for the one ques tion as to whether freehold or leasehold),' a uniform marriage and divorce law, the government of Papua, and other measures were non party, and good solid wo...

His Turn Came. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914
His Turn Came. She stood there and glared at him. "And you mean to stand there and aak me to press your trousers," she demanded. "-Why, yes, my dear," responded Mr. Stubb; "is that asking too much?" "I should say it is, John Henry Stubb. I'd have you know that when you married me you did not marry a flatr-iron." That evening his turn came. "John, dear," said Mrs. Stubb, "just button up my blouse before you go. There's a good man." "Nay, nay, Maria. When you ac cepted me you did not say 'yes' to a buttonhook," and, picking up his gl ves, he departed, leaving Maria too amazed to answer.
Chill Proof. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914
Chill Proof. The Duke of Fotheringill had given a great feast at Fotheringill Castle to commemorate the coming-of-age o£ his son and heir, the dashing Lord Highcollar. To this function had been invited the journalistic representative of a leading "daily." On the scribe's return to Fleet-st. he was asked to relate his adventures at the ducal home, and, among the Questions, someone asked him "if the duchess's affability had not somewhat embarrassed him." "Not a bit of it," he replied, with that air of serene ease, calmness, and self-satisfaction which so eminently becomes him. "Before I took up newspaper work, my boy, I used to test refrigerators!"
