A STAR OF THE STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914

A STAR O F THE STAGE. By H. J. BICKLE. The man halted on the threshold of ; the studio, his eyes wandering from ' the living model to the picture that ; T.'as growing beneath the inspired | touches of the famous artist, then back again his gaze returned to the child who was posing for the single figure that looked out from the can vas—the "Glow-worn Queen"—the fairy figure of a little girl amidst : some flowers, on which, through the evening mists, glow-worms were faint ly shining. Philip Slade drew a deep, silent breath, and the color ebbed away from beneath the sun blackened features. He could feel it rush to his heart, with a swift, bewildering emotion that shook his whole being. What face was this, so like the face of a woman belonging to the past—this lovely, childish face that, even as he v.atched, himself unseen, seemed slowly t.o whiten, and surely that slight, frail form swayed unsteadily? Slade strode across the room, just in time to catch the little girl as she collapsed ...

Items from Punch. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 12 May 1914

Items from Punch, j Messrs Deakin and Hagelthorn have ruled out athletes as Austra | Han exhibits at the Panama Exhi bition. They have shelved all sug gestions that footballers, runners and oarsmen be taken toJ3au Fran cisco. It is to be hoped the Com missioners will not go so far as to exclude a display of Australian belles. . W. H.

Mr Hughes tore him to tatters, and half-a-dozen others worried the remains, aud, like the Jackdaw of Rheiros, Mr Irvine did not seem a pen'orth the worse for all their cursing. If the Labor parties judge the amount of execu tion they do by the cries of the wounded, they got little satisfac tion out of Mr Cook's heuchmau.

Breeding Draught Stock on the Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 12 May 1914

Breeding Draught Stock on the Farm. From a letter by a practical horse breeder emphasising the necessity of using good mares, the following is an abstract:—' 'It will pay farmeis better to breed good draughts than any other class. When startiug to breed remount or carriage horses it will be found a more difficult task than is bargained for, though such horses will prove very profitable to successful breeders. I have seen some good horses of this type from a blood mare mated to a good draught entire. I do not believe in breeding from roadster stallions, one cross being quite enough. The quality of the hair is a good guide in the choice of a brood mare. If she is a mongrel it will show first in the hair. They should be as fiue in the "hair as possible, the head kindly, and wide between the eyes, broad in the chest, hind quarters good, and short in the legs and caunon bone. As we cannot ex pect the progeny of the best mares to be much good if- the sire is a mongrel, neither can we expe...

Feeding the Lambing Ewes. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 12 May 1914

Feeding the Lambing Ewes. Notes of this practical experience on this subject are thus contributed by a successful keeper of sheep along with his wheat growing:— "Our mixture is chaffed straw, molasses aud wheat. Get a hollow box or gum log about 2 feet in dia meter aud nail a piece of board and tarred felt at each end to make fairly water tight. Into this put chaffed straw not less than 4 inches long (animals that chew the cud do best on long food), fill up to the top but do not press down. "Have an old malt tank handy to use as a boiler, and iuto this put water, molasses and a little wheat, and boil well for about three-quar ters of au hour, keeping, well stirred all the time; enough molasses [ just to make the water about the same consistency as priming paint is used, or, say, linseed oil. When boiling hot, bucket it quickly iuto the trough of chaff. It is better; spread over the chaff by being poured on through a water cau with large holes in the sprinkler. While the molasses wat...

Maize Growing. AT ROCHESTER IRRIGATION SETTLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 12 May 1914

Maize Growing. AT ROCHESTER IRRIGA TION SETTLEMENTS. ' An agricultural reporter who lately visited our settlements states that the progress made at Bamawm and Nauneella, especially the for mer, is astonishing, particularly when it is realised that water was made available, only In October, 1911. Already there is an atmos phere of prosperity surrounding Ro chester district that was not present under "the dry farming regime. The settlement can now be best likeued to a well-ordered hive from which the drones have been expelled and only the workers permitted to re main. The department is particu larly fortunate in the possession of such an assiduous officer as Mr -J. Roy, the district secretary, whose enthusiasm and optimism iu all" matters appertaining to irrigation, no less than his practical knowledge of the subject, stamps him as the right man in the right place. He brings both tact and judgment to bear on his advisory duties, and in all dealings with settlers he has earned a well m...

Our Rochester Settlements. VIEWS OF A MILDURA SETTLER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 12 May 1914

Our Rochester Settlements. VIEWS OF A MIL-DURA SETTLER. . Mr Leu Jacob, sou of the well known Merbeiii (Mildura) irriga tionist, has beeu making a tour of inspection of the chief irrigated areas of the State, the last week of which has been spent on the Ro chester settlements, with which he Ins beeu very favorably impressed. He states' emphatically, his convic-. tiou that, from, the progress made here in two or three years, iu - ten years time our productivity will be in excess of that of Mildura, over which we possess many advantages. Iu the first place the Murray settle. ment is an oasis iu the wilderness, and about 360 miles from Mel bourne, while the Rochester settle ments are but HO miles from Mel bourne and mucKnearer the centres of civilisation aud commerce. The' character of the land is fairly simi lar iu both cases, but in' the matter of water supply, the all-important factor, the Rochester system is far superior to that at Mildura. At Rochester the supply is by gravita tio...

Live Stock. THE ART OF FATTENING. COST OF PRODUCING BACONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 12 May 1914

Live Stock. THE ART OF FATTENING. COST OF PRODUCING BA CONERS. Conspicuous success has attended the pig fattening operations con * ducted by Mr F. C. Grace, farm manager, of Warrnambool Agricul tural High School. The animals weri converted into prime baconers in a minimum period, and on being slaughtered at the Co-operative Ba con Factory at Bray brook, were pronounced to be some of the finest •pigs that had been received there. From a variety of feeding experi ments, Mr Grace has demonstrated that there is nothing better than the well-known combination of skim milk and pollard. The inclusion of a small proportion of bran equal to about one-seventh the quantity of the pollard was found beneficial by reason of its medicinal properties. In fact, its value in this direction has been so marked that Mr Grace advises its incorporation in any mixture that may be fed to the pigs. The ration favored consists of 6% lb of pollard, 22 lb of skim milk aud 1 lb of bran. ADVANTAGE OF BREEDING. The...

The English Follies Co. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 12 May 1914

The English Follies Co. This company of vaudeville artists gave all excellent performance to a good house at the Shire Hail on Saturday evening, and that their efforts were appreciated was tes'i fied by the fact that recalls were demanded after nearly every item, and even then the audience were not always satisfied. There was a great variety of songs, duets aud chorus, ably executed, interspersed with dancing aud amusing monolo gues. The programme included some choice items and many of the most popular airs of the day. The lady artists were Misses Loriug, Bond and Kirk, aud the principal gentlemen performers Messrs H. Ives and 0. Synuot. The much-, talked-of Tango was danced by Miss Bond and Mr C. Syunot, and it was a graceful performance devoid of any characteristics that would offend the susceptibilities of the fastidious. The whole entertainment went with a swing and without a tedious moment. That it was enjoyed by those present the sustained applause bore evidence, and at no tim...

(Established 1873.) PUBLISHED TUESDAY AND FRIDAY MORNINGS. The Largest Country Penny Newspaper in Northern Victoria, Tuesday - - » 5 Pages Friday ... 9 Pages TUESDAY, MAY 12, 1914. A COUNTRY LIFE. During the last few decades the steady gravitation of the rural population of many countries of the world towards the towns and cities has been noted and deplored by political economists. In no country of the world, perhaps, has the movement been more con spicuous than in our State of Vic toria, more thau half of whose population are crowded Into the congested centres. The one city of Melbourne alone holds about 46 per cent., or nearly one-half of our people, an unenviable distinction not enjoyed in any other country of the world. Our State promises in time to resemble a huge tad pole with more head than body, and it is valuable testimony to the capabilities and resources of the country that such a position can be maintained. It is hard to ac count for this response to the lure of the town...
