A PERFECT WOMAN. What She Should Measure. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 30 July 1914

PERFECT WOMAN. What She Should Measure.* If any woman wishes to know if she is a perfect specimen of her sex slie has only to apply to the rules laid down for ascertaining the fact, and figure out results. First as to height; tastes differ, but the Medicean Venus is 6ft. 5in. in height, and this Is- held by many sculptors and artists to be the most admirable stature. For a woman of 5ft. Sin. 1381b. is the proper weight, and if she is well formed she can stand another 101b. without greatly showing It. When the arms are extended she should' measure from'tip .of middle finger to tip of middle finger, just 5ft. 5in., exactly her own height. The length of her hand should he just a tenth of that, of her foot just a seventh, and the diameter of her chest a fifth. From the thighs to the ground she should measure just what she measures from the thighs to the top of her head. The'kuee. should come exactly midway b'etween the thigh and the heel. The distance from the elbow to the middle finger...

WOMEN'S TIDINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 30 July 1914

WOMEN'S TIDINESS. Women are certainly more- accurate than men. Young girls are taught t-arly In life that neatness in folding clothes and carefulness in putting avay dolls and oilier toys ure most necessary. Boys, on the other hand, are raely brought up on these lines; they are allowed to !Uns; clothes and toys where t.iiey think fit, and their sisters aro trained to pick up these thinjrs and put them in their right places.

EVERY FARM HAS CLIMATIC ZONES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 6 August 1914

EVERY FARM HAS CLIMATIC ZONES. "There are climatic zones of every farm that need to be studied and taken advantage of, just, as slight peculiari tics in plants and animals are studied and talten advantage of in breeding," says Krlc R. Miller. United States wea ther fore-aster, at the University o[ Wisconsin, in an article in the "Jour nal of Geography." "Different soils have the power to produce local differences in tempera ture," continues Mr. Miller. "This Is largely due to the power to absorb heat, and to the power to glv« out by radiation A good absorber is % good radiator, and a poor absorber is a poor radiator. The temperature chan ges in the soli are very much modi lied by the state of the atmosphere above them. Clouds, dust, and foe, intercept both incoming and outgoing radiation so that the range of tem perature of the soil cannot be so great. Clouds and fog act as a blanket, for they reflect back, and radiate back the heat sent out from the ground, and thus prevent the tem...

A FALLACIOUS ARGUMENT. There are some farmers who seem to care but little liow rough and coarse the cattle they feed may b provided they t;et them at a low price, ami their argument is that cattie bought in at a low price are bound to yet away from it.

MEN WHO ELOPE WITH THEIR OWN WIVES. And Sometimes Don't Know It. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 6 August 1914

EN WHO ELOPE WITH THEIR OWN WIVES. And Sometimes Don't Know It. A short time back a distinguished French painter discovered that his wife was inserting in the columns of her favorite journal advertisements, sotting forth that she was desirous of coresponding with an eligible widower or bachelor. Keeping silence on the matter, the artist himself put an ad vertisement in the same paper, couch ed (is follows:-"Prefect, near Paris, tan, fair, with private fortune of ,C Ki.OOO, would like to meet a tall, dark lady, with .siniilar means. Entire discretion. No agencies." The bait took, and the lady answer ed with a letter, concluding with a pusteript, "I am very tall, dark, ;ind of (he Spanish type of beauty. To this the husband, through the medium of a friend, replied, asking for the lady's portrait, to receive next day a passionate letter, in which the writer said: "As a rule 1 never give my photograph to anyone, though many people ask for it.

AGRICULTURE. HOW TO USE MANURE MOST PROFITABLY. Some of the Natural Laws with which the User of Manure must Co-operate. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 6 August 1914

AGRICULTURE. HOW TO USE MANURE MOST PROFITABLY. Some of the Natural Laws with which the User of Manure must Co-operate. From time immemorial (the editor of the Twentieth Century Farmer writes) it litis been almost the univer sal custom to spread manure over tile, surface of the soil, and then plough it under. Generation after generation of farmers have followed the custom without seriously thinking whether this method was the best method to be employed. Humans are controlled more or less by custom and habit, which they accept, and adopt unthinkingly, on the assumption that whatever is, is right, and that what always has been done is support ed by some good reason, and there fore should be continued to be done. Study of Natural Conditions Necessary. Every farmer should know for him self precisely why lie does what he does. In this matter of manure, if the farmer regularly year after year ploughs manure under, he should not do so unthinkingly, but. should know why he does it, and then...

High Courage. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 6 August 1914

High Courage. In a town in Belguim was lately re corded an act of courageous self-con trol and presence ol' mind which may be compared to advantage with the honors won by deeds of daring on the field of battle. Two workmen were engaged fixing a lightning conductor on the summit of the steeple at Ville-sur-Outhe. To accomplish this somewhat difficult and delicate task. It was necessary that one of the workmen should stand on the shoulders of his companion. While in this position, a violent gust of wind made him spill some molten lead, which fell on the hand and fore arm of his friend. Notwithstanding the sudden intensity of the pain thus inflicted, the victim of the accident had the courage to remain motionless while the lead burnt its way into his flesh. He knew that the slightest movement might suffice to precipitate his companion from a height of seven ty feet into the street below, and lie bravely endured the pain rather than imperil the life of his fellow work er.

I FOR THE FARMER. STOCK-BREEDING IN VICTORIA. Dr. S. S. Cameron, Director oi Agri culture in Victoria, in an interesting chat the other day with our represen tative, made some remarks on stock breeding, especially on small farms, that may be reuil with both pleasure and protit. Dr. Cameron said: ---"I wa.s recently struck by the high jump in values realised for beef breeds ol' cattle at the Sydney Koval Agricul tural Show sales.

THE VALUE OF SILOS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 6 August 1914

THE VALUE OF SILOS. Every year, in all parts of Austra lia, there is a shortage of succulent fodder from late summer to early spring, but, by the aid of the silo, cattle can, with profit, be tided over this time of stress. The dairy returns can be kept up-prices for dairy pro duce me highest in the lean times. Silage, therefore, keeps up the dairy returns, keeps the stock healthy and thriving, enables the farmer to carry more stock, spurs him on to better efforts in all his farming pursuits by increasing the profits of the farm, and aids in keeping up the fertility of the soil. No one who has fed sil age to his stock would hesitate r. mo ment before stating that farm is not complete without a silo. Throughout the whole of the State every spring there is an abundance of growth which goes to waste. A few weeks later it would be of great bene fit and assistance to the animals on Hie farm in enabling them to digest the hard, dry, Innutritions fodder at their disposal, which is only eate...

GOLD AND GLITTER. A Story of How a- Young Fool-was Saved from His Folly. My introduction took place to her when she was a red-faced, unprepos sessing infant of a few weeks, and I was a sufficiently grown man to ima gine that 111 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. . .

But it was the last time-for from that day onwards we were the best of friends-and 1 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 hor, considering that for twenty years of her . life I saw her practically every day.
