III. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 15 May 1914
They1 watched their guest ashore, and then fell to the discussion of a plan. Hugh had already dispatched a telegram to Heresford, and ho paced the deck impatiently as though a re ply must reach him before he slept. George Hedges, a little frightened by the night air, and quite without an eye for tbe beauties of Lisbon as the darkness revealed them, said that ho did not believe a word of what he had heard, and that tho morning would justify him. . "If tho man has any conscience at all, ho will see you," said he. "Let us all go to bed and sleep upon it— quite assured that we shall'laugh at our credulity. My dear Hugh, is it either possible or probable that the man who proved himself so good a friend to Lady St. Denys in the hour of her necessity, will now try to con vince us that he is a scoundrel? I say that it is preposterous—absolutely pre posterous. There, is no other word in ,th language." ."Except the Portuguese for whisky and .soda," said Mat, as a sudden freshet ot hope came t...
LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 15 May 1914
LADIES' LETTER. (By "Irono.") A Melbourne girl writing from Lyons speaks of her visits to the shops, which are very beautiful and in which wares are attractively dis played, but she says one cannot help contrasting the life of the French shopgirl with that of the Melbourne girl, the wuges and the hours being so different. In Lyons the shops open at seven in the morning and remain open until eight in the evening. Only a few of the beat shops close on Satur day afternoon, and most of them are open on Sunday. The highest wage ; a girl receives is 15/ a week, which Is vastly different to that obtainable here. My correspondent has also been shown through several largo silk warehouses, and says that crepe de chine has been quite ousted by taf fetas, afid that to be quite chic every thing must show a touch of tartan. An interesting piece of fashion news 1ms come from Paris. Burglars car ried away from an emporium 500 cor sets in motor-cars. Articles are known to have been carried away from...
PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 15 May 1914
PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT.. One of tho greatest prejudices with which electric lighting lias had to contend is the assertion that it is in jurious to the" eyesight, and the latest scare is that the ultra-violet rays of the tungsten lamp are harmful. The mere sound of the word "ultra-violet" seems to convey a terrifying impres sion to some people, who, perhaps, conjure up visions of mysterious mal adies analogo s to those which at tacked the early experimenters with the X-rays. All this alarm is, fortun ately, unfounded, for the emission of ultra-violet rays by some of the latest types of metal filament lamps merely increases their resemblance to the sun as a source of illumination. The pow erful new lamps, however, can be in jurious to the eyesight, in the same way as any other ilhiminant, by caus ing strain owing to glare. More than over nowadays the science and art of illumination require to bo carefully observed. In the days of tho candlo and the early gas burners the strain on the...
UNPLEASANT FOR THE ENGINEER. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 15 May 1914
UNPLEASANT FOR THE ENGINEER. A marine engineer tells of an un pleasant piece of work he once had to do during the trial trip of a magnifi cent boaL that a large firm of contrac tors had turned out for one of the big ocean-going steamship companies. The engines were to run at bo many knots an hour, and the big steamer loft her moorings and put out to sea for her trial cruise that was to de cide whether she would be accepted by the steamship company. He writes:—After we had been out to sea but a little time, the chief engin eer discovered that one of the piston rods had a slight defect in it—a thing not infrequent in a large mass of ma chinery—and that in passing to and fro the unwonted friction cauaed by this defect would in the course of a. vory little time make the piston and all - around it red hot. The conse quence of this would 'be very serious, and would mean a breakdown in the machinery. To allow it to occur would be madness; to stop the machinery to remedy the defect would ru...

DEVELOPMENT OF PULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
DEVELOPMENT OF PULLETS. Those who are raisins pullets for laying should note the food that is best for making tlio cockerels fit for market, and that which is best for de velopment of the laying pullets. The growlug pullets ehould be fed eutirely with n view to quick developments of the frame and ogg-producing organs; therefore, it stands to reason that the food which is best for the laying hen is right for pullets. There is nothing better for growth than milk, bran, a little cooked meat given constantly, and for the evening meal sound oats and wheat. Food should never be given in excess, for not only is the food wasted, but the digestivo organs of the birds become weakened. Maize should' be sparingly fed, especially during the- summer months, as it has the tendency to cause internal fat, which is one of ti.e greatest draw backs to c-gg-producing.
POULTRY. WHAT IS A PULLET? [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
POULTRY. WHAT IS A PULLET? There seems to bo a hazy notion among some farmers as to the exact meaning of the terms used to describe young and old stock. A pullet, strictly speaking, ie a female under one year old. But in Australia we call a fowl a pullet until she has completed lior first year's laying. Similarly, we call a male bird cockerel until he has at least entered well upon his ilrst year in the breeding pen. It is not ad visable to breed from birds younger than one year.

A FARMER'S CREED. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
A FARMER'S CREED. ! For this day I will do my best to do : everything just right; to be good and i kind to every ljvin£#thing I have any ' thing to do with; to"'be thankful that I live in such a good world; to make that world a little bit better; to think some new thought; to read a page or two from some good book; to look up from my work long enough to see what my neighbor is doing so well; to strike some blow for the right; to get a little nearer to the heart of my wife and children; and to ask God to help me make to-morrow a better day, a much better day, than this has been. A tip is diagnosed bv a Scottish writer as a small sum of money you give to somebody because you're afraid he will not like not 'being paid for something you haven't asked him to do.
INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
INFLUENCE. Our daily behavior, our manners and morals, have a power over oth ers tluit never ceases, nor can cease, until the poor waves of time break into nothingness upon the eternal shore. Therefore it is well that wo should have a clear view of that great force of life which we call "in fluence." The word is not ill-chosen. Inlluetice is something that flows into von, whether you- wish it or not, as the air around you will enter your lungs without your thinking about it. And as it is not needful even that you should know anything about your lungs in order that the air may enter them, so all vilenesses or sweetnesses may enter into your character by the influence of others, and do you either good or evil; and whether you know you are being affected or not, you are being affected by a necessary law of your being. Therefore "influence" is that power which one man exercises over another, modifying and deter mining his thoughts and actions, and that influence may be exercised with ou...

COMPROMISE A NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
COMPROMISE A NECESSITY. One plane of intelligence may not meet a lower plane 111 an atmosphere of pure reason. The thins cannot be clone. And that is why politics are an eternal compromise and a game and a make-believe and a 'business of wiles. No one need be ashamed. Of course, human nature ought to be ashamed of itself. But so ought the weather. Aim at perfection in everything, though in most things it is unattain able. They who aim at it, and perse vere, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and de spondency make theiu give it up as unattainable. He who respects his work so liisU !y and does it so reverently that "he cares little what the world thinks of it, is the man about whom the world comes at last to think a great deal. Nothing is more expensive than pcnuriousness, nothing more anxious than carelessness, and every duty which is bidden to wait returns with seven fresh duties at its back. ,
