SEED POTATOES. Necessity for Careful Selection. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 June 1914
:* , SEE D POTATOES. :Necessity for Careful Selection. Numbers of growers have had rea son to complain of the quality of their seed potatoes. Perhaps they are them selves to blame to Some extent for not taking greater care in selecting the seed. The seed potato which- is' most favored is one weighing from two to four ounces, and the grower who makes a rule of excluding-from his lines all that fail to come within. this standard will give satisfaction "to the. purchaser: andj to those. who handle his; consignments. Not only will he be. able to command a higher price, in- a bare market, but in a. full market his stock w11i 'bring him quick. and good returns,. while that of, his less. careful .n:eighbor will hang A:fre. and -possibly at: the last be :sacrified Diseased: and: scabby potatoes should 'on :no accouiit, be allowed: to . pass.s Knobby. and misshapen.sets:: should also be, strictly excluded.: ' It needs but very few'of: these to' completely spoil :.a whole line.

His Turn Came. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 June 1914
His Turn Came. She stood there and glared at him. "And you mean to stand there and ask me to press your trousers," she demanded. '"Why, yes, my, dear," responded Mar. 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 mitrry a flat-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.
SNAIL'S REAL PACE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 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. Zahnizer, a civil engineer, taken from actual observation. A short time since Mr. Zahnizer was waiting for a train at a country sta tion. He had nothing in pai-ticular 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. MMessrs. 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 73rd. per pound for porkers (prime small), and for pri...
SOME BULL'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 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 and 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 s...
THE OLD DOCTOR'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 June 1914
THE OLD DOCTOR'S STORY. "I have a little story to tell you, boys," the old doctor. said to the young people the other- evening. "One day-a lobig hot day it-had -been, too --I met my father on the. road to town. 'I wish' you -would take this-'package to the -village for me, Jim,' he said, hesitating. Now I was a boy 'of twelve, not? fond of work, and was just out of the hayfield, where I had been at work since daybreak. I -was tired, dusty and hungry.. It was two miles into town. I wanted to get my supper and to wash and' dress for singing school. My first impulse was to refuse, and to do it harshly; for I was vexed that he should ask me af ter my long day's work: If I did re fuse he would go himself-he was a gentle, patient old man-but some thing stopped me-one of God's good angels; I think. 'Of course, fatlier, I'll take it,' I said, heartily giving my scythe to one of the men. He gave me the package. 'Thank you, Jim,' *he said, 'I was going myself,. but somehow I don't feel very s...
HOW THE MONTHS WERE NAMED. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 June 1914
HOW THE MONTHS WERE NAMED. January. is of Latin origin, from the word Januarius, named by the ancient Romans in honor of their so called "god," Janus, to whom the sea son of the year was sacred. February comes from the Latin word Februarius, derived from feb rum, which, in the Sabine language, .meant a. "purgative"; hence comes the Roman festival of lustration and expiation. March is named in honor of. Mars, the Roman god of war. April derived its name from the La ,am iKr ?'- D -ll H lnd i[ D tin, Aprilis, and that from Aperire, which means to open. May is a name, the origin of which comes from the Romans, in honor of Maia, the mother of Mercury and daughter of Atlas. June is a name that all will readily think of when they read the history of the goddess Juno. In this month, she. seemed, from all accounts, to be greatly worshipped. July'is in honor of the great Roman, Caius Julius Caesar, who was born at this season of the year. August was named in honor of the great' Roman emperor,...

Whit wad ye say to Union-street?" Willie has taken the hint. and the invitations are out.
HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 June 1914
SHOW 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; if 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 Lhe ripe years of old age: when such things°'come to have a value far be yonddgrains and fat beasts.
VIM OF THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 June 1914
VIM OF THE FARMER. The farmer's vim shows in getting at the.-work, the minute it is ready. Shows, too, in the way he pushes that wor'k. 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 bound 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 cheerily 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?

Others can't, and so they try it a good while and waste a lot of strength. Just -take -those ladders now,- balance them, and put a stripe of different colored paint right around the side pieces at the right-place.: Or, paint the-.routid at the piv~otal point some color other than that of the rest of the ladder.

WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 June 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. When we have a special work to do we first "clear the decks for action." If there is an absorbing piece of literary work to be accomplished, the usual desk detail is cleared away, the ink bottle filled, the old pens re placed with new ones; when a busi ness man has a large undertaking on hand, he first rids his calendar of small appointments and annoying cir cumstances; the clerk in the store, to show a new line of goods, clears his counter of everything else; every good business manager, in order to have his men work to advantage, re lieves them first of petty inconveni ences which would hinder their pro gress. This is good business manage ment. Time and money are gained thereby. .ne nouseiKeeper, in order to forge ahead in her work, and make time count, needs to be relieved of clutter and inconvenient arrangements which are on all sides a bar to progress. It is her habit to clear away her dishes and clean ...

THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 18 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!. MIr. Gilbert has evidently a warm heart for small. holdings, but pertinently says, "they cannot be established anywhere-only on better soils can they succeed."
