THORPDALE. J'rum Our Oini Ct>rrcs//i>ndail The dairying industry in this dis trict has been a profitable one during the paBt season, and there are many individual cases showing exception ally high returns. Thoss shown by Messrs Mills and Hirt will probably constitute a record here, anil will take a lot of eclipsing in even more favored parts of the State. The re turns from 12 cows for cream sup plied to the Trafalgar Butter Factory averaged L20/;'>/-lj per head. The returns we're examined and vouched for by TltK TIMES representative, and uro open tor the inspection of anyone who may have sceptical tenr dencies.

An Unexpected Order. Tlio most interesting oxperienco 1 ovor bad (luring a long timo on tlio road occurred somo years ago in Scot land, says a traveller. One day during tlio Highland Show, where wo woro exhibiting engines, a very unkempt-looking individual hung around the stand for somo time, and thinking ho appeared very interested in a largo traction engine, and might possibly be a driver, I approached him tor a chat. After a time, however, I found he was a man-who had an idea ho would like to liavo it for his own, but beforo deciding bo said ho would first liavo to ask his mother. A photographer is something like a husband-tlio only thing on earth lie asks of a woman is that sho keep perfectly still and look pleasant.
WHEN WALKING IS HARD WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 14 August 1914
WHEN WALKING IS HARD WORK. People often express surprise that soldiers on the march cover only ten or twelve miles of ground per day. Even then u good many men fall out through fatigue, some faint, and the whole are completely done up at the end of the day. But the soldier is, nevertheless, a lirst-rate walker. It is all a matter of foot-tons of energy expended. Take an ordinary lahoror, and his day's work will be equal to 300 tons lifted 0110 foot high. An eleven-stone man, walking seventeen miles on the level, does the same amount of muBclo work. But mark, i£ ho carries an overcoat weighing Gib., he does 311 foot-tons. Now, tho soldier is a regular pack horse, and tho kit that lie carries av erages about 801b. in weight. So that he, does exactly as much work in a twelve-mile march as an ordinary man in his seventeen-mile walk. Besides, the soldier has to "break camp" beforo starting, and at the finish of the march ho has to pitch camp, dnVw water, collect fuel, clean rifles, etc.,...
COUGH GENTLY. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 14 August 1914
COUGH GENTLY. Few people know how to cough pro perly. It never occurs to the ordin ary individual tlmt there Is a right way and a wrong way of doing it. Yet it Is a matter ot no small import ance. If every sigh means a drop of blood out of Hie heart, as people say, every cough means some greater or less proportion ot time knocked off one's life. Most people cough as loud ly and forcibly as they can. I3ut it Is rather costly noise, for the single reason that it tears and inflames the lungs. The lungs consist of an extra ordinary delicate sponge-like tissue, which sometimes gets inflamed and choked with phlegm. When we try to get rid of this substanco wo cough. But obviously, if we remove it vio lently, we must necessarily injure the delicate lung tissue. Therefore train yourself to cough as gently as pos sible.
WOMAN'S WORLD. WEAR BECOMING COLORS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 14 August 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. WEAR BECOMING COLORS. It Is not every woman who under stands tlio art and necessity of har monising colors. Sho Is apt to bo swayed too much by the decrees ol fashion when selecting shades for a new lint or dress, and the result, more often than not, is great contrasts, which accentuate Instead of hido de fects of the faco and figure. The woman who desires to look her best must select only thoso colors which will bo helpful to her. 'Women differ so much In form and coloring that eacli must bo a law unto her self. There is (ho fair and florid woman, the thin and sallow woman. Another type is neither stout nor thin, per haps, but colorless and faded, a strik ing contrast to the highly-colored dark woman, whoso pinla cheel'is liavo changed to a dull red. Taking the fair and florid, a typo generally inclined toward obesity, she may bo said to bo fairly safe if she will adopt dark colors or shades below the bust-line, and select those near her face with a view to bceomlngn...
