SHEEP FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 26 September 1913
SHEEP FOR FARMERS. The farmers who combine other in dustries, such as .the growing of cereal crops with sheepbreedlng, should secure -a flock that will give I them the best net return annually per sheep. .Having ■ but limited areas, as a rule, the increase must be got rid of quickly, so that early maturity is an important feature, arid lamb'.rais-'; ing is chiefly aimed at. This Ja quite •in agreement with the meat, •export trade, which always prefers the early ;■ maturing carcase.. Wool is a second-' ary consideration, but must not be overlooked. I What the lamb and mutton trade' requires, as well as early maturing, : is quality o£ meat more than the: quantity. The weights required in '• lambs vary from 281b. to 401b.; not more; anything beyond this is too heavy, and would probably be termed teg or weaner mutton. Lambs should be wethere up to the time of being slaughtered, and should be tak^nfrom their mothers at about four months old, in order to give the latter time to properly r...

The Lost Parchment (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XXI. A Final Surprise. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 26 September 1913
The Lost Parchment By FERGUS HUME. (By Arrangement with Ward, and Co., Melbourne.) (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XXI. A Final SurDrlse. . i / At the inquest held on the body of the unfortunate Carrington, the whole story of the events connected with the will of John Hendle was related in • detail. This was done by the advice of Inspector Lawson, so as to avert further trouble. As the officer wisely pointed out, it was necessary that the characters of all those implicated in the affair should be cleared once and for all. This could only be done by the truth being made public. And this ■ course of procedure greatly re commended itself to Rupert, who was tired of underhand doings. He was ol a frank nature, and the idea of hid ing this and concealing that, annoyed him exceedingly. He therefore made a clean breast of the matter when call ed upon, to give evidence regarding ■Carrington's death, and insisted that every one else should do the same. 'Consequently, the whole amazing story Ap...

CARE OF THE SOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 26 September 1913
CARE OF THE SOW. After mating, the bow should be turned into a well-grassed paddock, with ample supply o£ good water, shade, and protection from harsh winds; rain or extremes of heat ,and cold. Food should not be too easily available, the aim being to keep the animal in sturdy and healthy condi tion. t>y forcing her to get enough ex ercise each day in searching for her food. Sows are fond of basking in the sun, and the habit is a healthful one. A warm, clean bed should be provided, and where there are a number of sows, money spent on a shelter-shed is money well spent. Sows should be kept in a quiet, con tented frame of mind, and they should therefore not be grazed with other animals, but should be given undis turbed possession of a paddock, if possible. . Over-feeding should be avoided, but in cold weather some starchy food, such as maize or grain, is necessary, and during the third month the food supply should be increased. "Well, Johnny, my dear, how are you getting on with yo...
HOW TO STUDY BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 26 September 1913
HOW TO STUDY BIRDS. Bird life is an attractive study and a fascinating amusement in the home circle, whether viewed in picture books or iii Nature's haunts, and most people would welcome an opportunity to become better acquainted with their feathered neighbors. I£ they- have I never Btudied birds before, however, they may be at a loss to know how to I begin. In that case the following sug gestions may be of use:— Carry on your strolls in the bush an opera glass of light weight, a fold ing stool, a notebook and pencil. If you can also take along some simple | book on bird-life with colored pictures, eo much the better. It should be easy to carry. If not, leave it at home and compare the notes in your own book with its descriptions when you come home. Places near a shrubbery, bushy swamps, running brooks, old fences, or hedges, are the best .places to haunt if one desires to see birds in any number. Nooks among pines and cedars are also frequented toy inter esting birds. As to the tim...

THE DECREE OF DESTINY. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 26 September 1913
THE DECREE OF DESTINY, j By Oswald Clifford. "A conv.ict, not long released from prison, I dare to let a woman's face . haunt my thoughts, dare to indulge in a, madman's dream." George Westwood uttered the words in low, grave tones. There was no one to overhear him 'in that dingy city office. He sat alone, for onee resting a moment from his work. The gloomy surroundings had 'been effaced from his mind. Only one sweet vision stood out clearly in his thoughts—a girl'B tender, winsome face. But what had he to do with love, he who was branded, and to whom was left but one stern purpose in life— the tracking-down of the man for whose guilt he himself had been^ pun ished? * Here, in this moneylender's office, where old Isaac.dale sat like a fat, ugly spider in the centre of its skil fully-woven web, Ihe- performed the work that was hateful to him. But he had been forced by circumstances' to accept whatever employment was offered him. Old Isaac had, perhaps, guessed something of the truth,...
