Too often tlio high-priced win ter egg proves bnt a palo, flabby af fair with colorless yolk and watery white. This results from feeding without a sufllclcncy af green food and hard grain, especially maize* Fresh green feed and maize will pro duce the egg with ricli, golden yolk and firm wliito standing up around it -a thing of beauty on the breakfast table and a joy to the breakfaster.

FOR THE FARMER. STOCK-BREEDING IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 14 August 1914

FOR THE FARMER. STOCK-BREEDING IN VICTORIA. Dr. S. S. Cameron, Director of Agri culture in Victoria, in an Interesting cliat tlio oilier day with our represen tative, made some remarks on stock brccding, especially on small farms, that may be read with both pleasure and prollt. Dr. Cameron said:-"1 was recently struck by the high jump in values realised for beef breeds of cattle at the Sydney lto.val Agricul tural Show sales. Kor \ year or two back the prices obtained at these sales for Hereford, shorthorn, and other beef-breed cattle have been compara tively low, thus indicating that the Queensland and other back - country buyers have not been operating as they used to do. It lias always seemed strange to me that as Queensland is engaged in the business of beef export it does not emulate its great rival, the Argentine, whose stock-breeders an nually import, at very high cost, some of the best pedigree stock Hint eau he produced in Great Iintain.

GOLD AND GLITTER. A Story of How a Young Fool Was Saved from His Folly. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 14 August 1914

. GOLD AND GLITTER. A Story of How a Young Fool Was Saved from His Folly. My Introduction took placo to her when she was a red-faced, unprepos sessing infant of a few weeks, and 1 was a suflictcntly grown man to tma gino that the few hairs that adorned my upper lip constituted a moustache, and that my age and sex entitled me to the admission of a supreme con tempt for babies. I remember she screamed for the whole of tho five minutes during which sho was submited to my inspection, and rendered me more uncomfortable than any member of her sex had ever done before. But it was the last time-for from that day onwards we were the best of friends-and I only mention the occasion of our first meeting in order to prove that I assuredly had a good claim to thoroughly knowing and un derstanding her, considering that for twenty years of her life 1 saw her practically every day. I was her godfather-a high honor, I believe-but it carried its responsi bilities, though I never seemed to feel their w...
