EXPORT OF BUTTER soahcrry of sthamkhs. A deputation from the co-operative butter distributing companies waited oil Mr. Tudor, Minister for Customs, ami brought before hiai tho position of tlie companies in regard to tho shipment of butter.

LUCERNE AND THE BLOAT TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 19 November 1914

LUCERNE AND THE BLOAT TROUBLE. Among the few things that stand in tlio way of tho fullest success in the dairy business as regards feeding lucerne to cattle, duo of the most seri ous is the .liability of 'cattle to bloat and often die as a result of over-in-' diligence in the luscious "king of for age crops." So much discouragement has resulted from dairymen from bloat that iu the past it has boon considered little short of foolhardy to try grazing it, and soiling has been th*e common practice of feeding lucerne ill its green state. Aside from avoiding the bloat menace, the boiling system makes a larger yield of lucerne from a given acreage possible, but against this is the heavy, constant amount of labour re quired, and also the fact that cows, when allowed to graze, will produce a better (low of milk. .Tust why n cow will bloat on standing lucerne aud not after it has been cut is one of the things not yet understood, although the explanation probably exists iu the fact that the st...

PROFITABLE AND UNPROFITABLE COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 26 November 1914

i PROFITABLE AND UNPROFIT ABLE COWS. I Only a rich man can afford to keep unprofitable cows. Sometimes it is said that a man, i.n'ess lie is well-off, cannot afford to own good cows, but that is not true. If he can afford to own any, lie can afford to own the best. The man who refuses to take tlio necessary steps to secure a good cow. must work double time to get any profit ,and wait years before he can breed up to a higher standard. It has to be realised at the beginning that it is better to put nil the money in half a dozen good cows, than in a dozen inferior ones. The profits of dairying depend entirely upon the cows and the system of raising feed and gving it to the animals. It has been proved that good, not fancy bled, cows havo made £10 profit per year, net for their own ers. after tlie cost of feed had been de ducted, and all other charges. If one good cow will make that profit, a herd of 10 or 20 should net a fairly good income. This can be dono in almost any region where go...

PARIS STORY OF AN HOTEL MANAGER. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 26 November 1914

PARIS STORY OF AN HOTEL^ MANAGER. "He's been shot; ovar a hundred spiee have been shot at Vincennss and La Muette." This Frenchman was speaking of an hotel manager I used to know, a little writes the Paris correspondent of the London "Daily Mail." His hotel is off the Champs-Elysees, a place of soft carpet and inlaid wood, marblo and palms. Ho was one of thosa suave, self-possessed German or Austrian hotel managers who niake on you an uncanny impression of omniscience.-* They speak every European tongue without a trace of faltering; they know tho name of the best hotel, and are personally acquainted with ts manager in every city of Europe. Thtv can give you detailed directions for the most complicated journey without open ing a single time-table, and their in formation is right to the last particle. They know at what station the dining car is put on, and they impress you to remember that the train leaves Klein stadt-aro-Fluss twenty minutes earlier this month than the time mentioned...

CHATTER. I chatter, chatter, as I go. A CAMP SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 26 November 1914

CHATTER. I chatter, chatter, as I go. A OAMP SUNDAY. "Never^been in c«mp I" said the roice on the telephone. "Not been in camp—come down with me to-morrow." There being, as it seemed, no two ways about it—we went. Dust-colored tenta on a flat, bare plain. Not half the tents and not half the dust that wore there before, we are told, Not half the men either. That is in number. For the rest, as dear old Dogberry says "Comparisons aro odorous," but we heard what tho Colonel thought of his men, and what other .folk thought of the Becond con tingent, and perhaps it would not be wise to put in print lost the snid con tingent bo told an become unduly up lifted. That reminds .tie. . We saw somo of the work of tha Cheer Up Our Boys" Society. .Very j,ood it was. I have only one fault to find with that so ciety, and that is that its namo is a little mislead"ng. Firstly, they are not boys, but men, stalwart ones lit that, Secondly, so far as I could see, they did not show the slightest symptom o...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 26 November 1914

MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Ooo»spunduut.) Tho way seems to have been cleared at Inst to put into U60 tho German cteamers which lievo been idly accumu lating barnacles in our port since the outbreak of the war. It has taken a long time to ''omply with tho niceties which notions which play the war game according to the rules, have to ob serve. Iiut apparently they have now all been punctilously discharged, and tlie very useful -iJditions to the ship ping aro to be put to good use. A request litis been made to have them fitted with what in necessary to en able them to rulieve the oool storage places of Melbo irue of some of the produce with which they are crammed, and »nich cannot be despatched to the overseas markets that are awaiting it fir for lack of steamers with refriger ated accomodation. But the difficul ties in the way of providing the German boats with the equipment requisite for that important department of trans port trade seem, to be insuperable. Therefore, the pro...

AUSTRALIA AND THE INDIAN MUTINY. THE LAST IINK SEVERED. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 26 November 1914

AUSTRALIA AND THE INDIAN MUTINY. THE LAST I INK SEVERED. One of the last links connecting Aus tralia with the Indian mutiny of 1857 was snapped in Perth, Western Aus tralia, a few days ago, when Pte. Wil liam Henry Symons, formerly of the 1st Battalion of the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, answered to the roll call for the last time. Few who no ticed the tall figure of the old commis sionaire standing at the entrance to the Economic Stores, at the corner of Hay and William Streets, Perth, had any idea that as a young man he played his part with the "illustrious garrison" in that magnificent defence of Lucknow which lasted for five months, until the brave defenders were finally relieved by Sir Colin Campbell. Pte. Symons, who was 77 at the time of his death, joined the 32nd regiment at Plymouth in 1656, and shortly afterwards left for India. When the mutiny broke out the following year, the 32nd was sta tioned at Lucknow, and it was upon it that the whole defence of the city prac...

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 26 November 1914

FOR WOMEN (By "Ambrosine") Fifty of •v«iy one hundred persons who 8" to public libraries ask, accord iug to libriirians: "What is 8 good book for me to readr"' In ot?!°-r tho choice of reading is, in this lar£e percentage, lolt to the discretionary direction of tho uian or woman behind the public library desk. Very^ tew persons, it is mi id, ask for a dofimto book. Accoptmg this condition as a fact, tho responsibility of the librar ian is groat, but tho responsibility ot th» community 'n solecting a librarian is even greater. That librarians are selected ivith too little thought of tho in.portance of their position is general ly admitted. As a matter ot tact, the importance that 9ttaches itself to tho position ib little known. But with tho knowledge that it is in the power of tho librarian to direct tho reading 01 evory other person who comcs to tho library, tho matter assumos a sigmti cant gravity that communities should wcigli more carefully.

DAMPED OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 26 November 1914

DAMPED OUT. Here is an incident connected with the law in the Royal Navy, "No Sjnok iug during working hours." Old hands steal a smoke as often as possible. Their favorite hiding place aboard, the old battleship Slowspeed was an upper dec compartment on the port side. One day the commander noticed the volumes of smoke oaming out of the skylight of this place. He sniffed, then quietly gave orders for officials to stand by for fire quarters. Then he yelled dose to the said compartment. ,,Sound off for Fire Stations 1" The bogle rang out, the bells clang' ed, and the whistles piped. Every thing ready, the O.O. yelled: "Fire in the port ! Pass hose down skylight." After ten minutes of this the bugle sounded the "Own," and the eolprita ■wwrm released, like drewned rate. "Why is a clock like a pretty and vnin young lady?" "1 fail to soe ur resemblance. Wliyf" "Because it is all face and figure, has no head to speak of, is hard to etop when onoe it is wound »p, and has a striking way of ca...

THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTEB XXVII. '' GOOD-BYE, SWEETHEART, GOOD-BYE." The suii hud long ago sank to rest be hind the towers of Windsor, and even ing was slowly drawing her veil over die panting earth. Tlie day of work was over, and the labourers had left the fields uud gone home to tho quiet of their cottages. A soft mist hung over tho valley, where the roses were bathod in refreshing dews, and evory tassel of tho bluebell "was made into a fairy gob let. The river seemed to bo half asleep, ' waiting to be waked into shining silver by the fiist moonbeam; but the sound at its waters ivas pleasant to the ear, and those who were tired with the mill round of pleasure, or literary labour, were' glad to sit still and be quiet, with softer thoughts, for which they gener ally had 110 time, thronging through heart and brain. Suddenly the twilight lied betore the light of ninny lamps, and the stillness iv«\s broken b*' tho notes of ft wfilt7» emerging from a clump of evergreens, behind which ...
