ECHELON MILKING STALLS. AT HAWKESBURY AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 16 June 1914

ECHELON MILKING STALLS. at hawkesbury agiuculxubal COLLEGE. Compared with our old bails, tho echelon milking stalls show to consider able) advantage, especially in the fact that a comparatively small building (31 feot x 10 feet), ia all that is requir ed to milk sixteen oowa at a time. Since this building can bo built and fitted up for lrom £100 to £130, according to locality, it is well worthy; of considera tion as an effectvie and comparatively olieap building for milking purposos. Oi'ig.ually tho "stalls"-were made oi wood, the uprights entering the con crete floor, but they aro now construct ed of iron piping, which is bolted to tho walls,- and tho floor ia thus left free from obstruction, a decided advan tage when cleaning. . The construction of tho floor is rather different from tho usual method, as tho eipeuso has been cut down as low as possiblo by filling up with packed .sand, aud putting Zinches of roinforcod con crete on the top . .

Now we know that tnero is something else required, and that the soil has more complicated ma terials iji it.

We now know that no plant taken its food in a raw state, but musty have it prepared, as it wero, or metamorphosed in some way or an other by the aotion of bacterial life. Indeed, it appears in some casca that barronnoss or sterility of 6oils is not due to tho want of manurial ingredi- i ent, but to the want of bacterial' in- | giedionts.

FRUIT BUDS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 16 June 1914

FRUIT BUDS. Fruit buds may be distinguished from leaf buds by their greater plump ness. Leaf buds are small, thin and pointed at the end, we are told in "The Country Gentlemen." Pears bear the fruit buds on spurs similar to the apple. On the peach tree the buds are borne on the new wood which grew the previous summer. They appear in'groups of three, two large fruit buds, one on each side of a thin leaf bud. On cherry trees buds are borne on spurs; the central bud of eaoh cluster is generally a leaf bud. The buds <jf the plum grow in much the same manner.

The Federal Crisis. GROUND OF BATTLE. (Contributed.) [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 16 June 1914

The Federal Crisis. GROUND OP BATTLE. (Contributed.) It is a pity that the Federal Par liament should devote some of its last hours to discussion o£ a sort cal culated to cloud the real issues on which the electors are to pronounce in two or three months. Let it be ad mitted that there is possibility of honest difference of opinion as to the interpretation of clause 57. More than that, let if bo granted that Messrs Irviuo and Hughes do honestly differ as to tho meaning of its words, still the Governor-General has studied the Constitution and has decided in accordance with his reading of the clause. Every Australian who gives a thought to Federal matters knows that the two Test Bills were sub mitted with a definite purpose, that party leaders wrangled as to how His Excellency would act, that, let him do what ho would, he was bound to net aside tho reasoning of the present Attorney-General or his predecessor in office.

EGGS THAT CROAK. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914

EGGS THAT CROAK. That young unhatclied 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 bo heard when the eggs are buried under one or two yards of «»nd. Dr. w. A. mmborn 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. Voeltzlcow noticed that unhatched Madagascar crocodiles uttered a cry from the egg at a depth of two yardB, 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 vlsltB the nest that they want her aid, whereupon she scrapes...

POINTED REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914

POINTED REPLIES. It is very amusing sometimes to hoar the ever-ready and witty replies made by some people to the questions they are asked. It is said by some to be an "extra eift," I6r, no matter where thoy are or how quick the ques tion is given, they are able to give an answer or oiler 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 easiest to escape from-the prison or the asy lum." A clumsy carver once sent a goose into a lady's lap. His apology was better than his carving. "Ah, madam, how potent your charms are! They 1 attract not only the living, hut also the dead." On an examination paper on "How we are Governed" was the question: "If the Prime Minister, the Chancel lor of the Exchequer, the Home Secre tary, and all the other members of the Cabinet should die, who would officiate?" A boy of twelve thought for a moment; then the happy inspir at...

But I require no thing. Besides, I do with B. and Co., and they serve me well." "Perhaps you will look at my sam ples, sir?" "I tell you, man, I'm quite full; you annoy me."

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. 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 tho 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 Deiuuria. o.nd deposited over-night in a large shed, which was used by the men an a sort of canteen. The nfownrfl 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 vltch. who was famous for the bois terous hilarity of his manner, and es pecially for his loud, resonant laugh ter The sight of nitro-glycerine in a vodka tumbler so excited his risibility that he gave vent to a series of sten torian ...
