FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 19 November 1914

FOR WOMEN (By "Ambroeine") Thoro is one person in Germany that odb must feel very sorry for, and she is tbo wife of the Crown Prince. The Crown Princess Cecilo is of Russian de scent, and with no great love for the Germans. She is the daughter of the Grand Duchess Anastasia of Russia. Buch a pretty, smart, woman, too, who upset the pink-flannelette-wearing Gor man fraus by insisting on getting alt her trosseau (of the c-obwebbiest and most lovely description) in Paris. Her mother, the Duchess Anastasia, who married tho Grand Duke Frederic of Mecklenburg, in a lady of bo lively and spirited a disposition, that the shocked the stodgy traditions of the Prussian Conrt to such a degree the Kaiser gave her to understand that her presence at th# Court was not desired. From that moment relations between tho Crown Prince and his domineering father grew strained, and he and his daring Prin cess openly flouted tho authority of their august papa to such an extent that the world-wide known banis...

TURF TOPICS [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 19 November 1914

TURF TOPICS (By "FHmington.") „r ,<i0ple 0 "ot J'et ceased to talk ot De Gama, who distinguished himself ny winning three races at the Mel bourne Cup meeting. It is generally agreed that Do Gania was extremely fortunate in not having to carry more than 8st. 131b. to finish up with. Han dicap), ers do not always take such a lenient view of winning form. Most horses have to pay far more dearly for success. It is plain that the weight •djuater quite failed to properlv esti mate Do Gama with the result that the New Zealander Won his last race a good deal easier than his first. De Gama must have improved as the meeting went on, as he won tho Final Handicap >Mth a good deal in band. Apart from his series of successes, Do Gama has also recently been in the Jimclight in another way. The V.A.T.C. has decided that the horse is not to'race nt Guulficld again. No reason is given for the rejection of De Gama's entry, nor is the club bound to give a reason: but there is an impressio...

In this direction interesting details of some of the uses to which cars ore being put in France and Belgium *aro supplied to the Autocar by N. Pollow, of Antwerp, the leading designer of the Minerva, the premier Belgian car. From the motorists' point of, view undoubtedly the most striking thing in connection with tho war is the groat use that has been mads of ) the ordinary five-seated touring car and limousine. Here in Belgium at I the commencement of the war, cars | were requisitioned wholesale through out the country.

CAUGHT IN AN ELEPHANT TRAP. Everyone knows the story of th® mnn ill India, who, one dark night, (ell into a trap set for elephants, but managed to save himself by catching hold of the top of the pit Willi the tips of his fingers and Clinging on to the earth like grim death. Ho was unable lo climb up And for an hour or so lie hung on to the top, crying out at Intervals (or the help that never cuiiio. .At length, just as daylight was dawn ing, he could hold on no longer and Willi a cry, closed his eyes us ho re leased his grip and dropped down— down—down—about two inches ! He had been hanging all the time with his feet almost touching the door of the pit. A somewhat similar experience be fell a. skater on the moat at Kinch ley the other day.

Several bystanders ran off to get ropes and ladders ; othe...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 19 November 1914

I MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Corr«»pon4«nt.) The raids of tho military authorities under the Trading with the Enemy Act, do not seem to havo been taken without warrant. It is quite plain from the little that has been revealed that there is a danger of Australia being made a source of supply, through round-about avenues, of course, of somo of the things the enemy needs. Another fact demonstrated by the raids is that ito arc awakening, if slowly, to the neces sity for taking the war more seriously and realising more" fully the menace that lies in leaving all sorts of facili ties open' for the many agents of the enemy who are in our midst and who find material for amusement as well as profit in our childlike trust. The action of the authorities natur ally gives stimulus to tho fabricators of tho rumors that are always rife. The morbid-minded who derive some re markable sort of pleasure from promul gating scare stories are always ready to avail themselves of any incident cal cul...

Manure for Summer Fodders. [From the "Journal of Agriculture."] [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 19 November 1914

Manure for Summer Fodders. [From the "Journal of Agriculture."] Much depends upon the soil and climate under which the crap* iu'0 grown as to the kinds- and qualities of manures required, but thero can be no doubt that it is a mistaken, business policy not to manure for fodders even on fairly rich soils, and it is absolutely imperative on poor soils. The greater the growth of. fodder, the greater the amount of stock that can be turned off per aoro, and the bettor the land will be for succeeding crops. For millet and maize crops, in the colder and heavier rainfall districts, from 1 to 2cwt of superphosphate per acre, according to the quality of the land used, is advisable. For coastal country a mixture of two-thirds sup erphosphate with one-third Thomas' phosphate has proved good. Half and half mixtures of super, and bone dust suit sandy soils. Nitrogenous manures are of use in Gippsland and j other cool climates, and blood man ure—from'^ewt to lowt applications are good, applied eit...
