The hall was crowded, and the stirring speeches delivered by the various speak ers roused the audience to the highest pitch of enthusiasm.

Pearson, who received every assistance from the chairman, Cr. J. Allardyce, and members of the com mittee. The proceedings opened with the National Anthem, 'followed by a. song, "Tommy Atkins," by Dr. Best. The first speaker was the Hon. Wm. Pearson, M.L.C., who was received with loud applause.

I tested the milk from a cow j after she was brought up by a stable dog. the dog'in turn, being in charge j of a small boy. She was considerably excited .and quite warm. Her milk tested 2.3.

The He[?]field Herald, PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY MORNING [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 15 July 1915
tin IjkW'i feaii PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY MORNING "You took a long time waking np," exclaimed an iuteijector at » recruiting jneeiing at Korumburra, when Sir Wm Irvine declared lie would be an alarm ist till Australia was thoroughly aroused. "And some of us," retorted Sir William, "are ' not awake yet, Happily, at die close of Victoria's re cruiting wetk the number of those who would fain slumber again is very small. A year or so ago we were all living in a fool's paradise, dreaming that the world had grown too wise for war. Some of us clun» to the dream as long as we could, reluctant to believe that our boasted advance meant ho little, but stem facts have proved too much for us, and to-day we know, the whole civilised vtorld knows, that with its horrors war brings us a nobler, stronger national life, revealing the depths of a courage we feared that luxury had sapped.

Ordinary business having belen dealt with, in the course of which LI la was voted to Lady Stanley's special appeal for Red Cross Funds, the business on the syllabus, consisting of a paper bv Rev E. W. Bradley, was entered upon. Dr Best, medical officer of the Branch, was cordially welcomed as a visitor.

The one "Live" Cream Separator. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 15 July 1915
one "Live" Cream Separator. It i.v. lmown and conceded by anyone who knows anything about Cream Sep arator:: that the "Alla-Laval" is tho pioneer, the one that blazed the way. the one that has always led the pro cession, the one that is, and always lias been recognised as the standard by agricultural colleges, butter factories, creameries, and dairymen the world over. and that each succeeding year shows a greater percentage oF separa tors tc bo "Alfa-Lavals." All of these people could not have been fooled all these years with an inferior article. The superiority of the "Alfa-Laval" and the estimation in which H> is held can b ? accounted for in 'various ways. To begin with, the '*Alfa-Laval" Separ ator Company has concentrated its ef forts to the building of a Cream Separa tor and nothing else. It is left to other concerns th« building of engines, reapers and binders, hay rakes, ploughs, harrows, etc., etc. It is the one sep arator concern that appreciates the importance of speci...

DISEASE SPREAD BY DUST. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 15 July 1915
DISEASE SPREAD BY DUST. ~ if We have lately been warned that s fcue deadly germs of tetanus of lock : jaw infest tiie dust of our streets. The . ? disease, in spite of all research, is sur rounded with a, considerable amount of mystery, and it has increased during the last ten years very appreciably. Earthy aiaterial and dust is now whirl ed about by the rapid travelling iilotor I'ehioies, whether they carry passeugtra cr goo'cls. to an extent never before known, and it is to this cause that the increase in the disease is attributable. Une .suggestion made is that houses should bo built a little back l'rom the roadway so that a belt of. garden may intervene, and allow the dust to settle in-jtuad of reaching the dwellers in the houses. But this will not do much to help the pedestrians who must use the roads. The only safeguard will be for the road authorities to keep tho streets damp and so to prevent tho spread of germ-carrying dust. Besides this the publio must realise that any ivu...

NEW MOTOR HEADLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 15 July 1915
NEW RIOTOR HEADLIGHT. A new headlight for motor-cars has just been put on the market in France, which represents a radical departure from present designs. The'lamp has the shape of a human eyebaltana turns in its socket in exactly the same man ner as the eye in its support. Ttv small olamps, controlled by thumb screws, from the interior of the car. hold the lamp in position in any desir ed diiection while the handle- itself is used in turning-the light rays to the spot-they are needed. Sign-posts at the side of the rnnd or the low-lying mite to near ate tiros brought within reach of the rays, while at their lowest position they even throw light into the hood, lighting the motor, magneto, and carburettor. By removing the two small clamps entirely the whole lamp can be- taken out of the socket and used as a "trouble lamp" inside^ or outside the machine.

ITALIAN TOMATOES. J I' liau enterprise s i1 .> 1 rated ctrik- j ingly in the manner in ivJiich it has ' developed an export trade in many , kinds of fruit. For example, accord- J ing to the reports of American com- j mercial agenis, the Italian canned to mato is ousting the American from the English market.

NEW LIGHT ON AN OLD PARABLE [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 July 1915
NEW LIGHT ON AN OLD PARABLE The following was born in a school in Duml'rieahire. - The Scripture examination was in progress, and the local parish minister was doing the quizzing. In the course of ihe test the go:>d man, alter hav ing boxed the compass of the Old Test ament, passed to the New with this encouraging observation-"Now, ray dear children, you all know the story of the good Samaritan:"' "l'es, sir," came the instant assur ance from the "innocents" in front of him. "Well, can you tell ine why the priest passed by on the other side?" Somewhere in the back bench-as usual-a grimp fist was shot up, and lire little lingers flicked in the air. "Please sir," said the ownor, "he kent the man was: robliit already.'' No record was kept of the reverend gentleman's surprise at ttie unortho dox answer. THE HAIR LINE. .

The He[?]field Herald, PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY MORNING [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 July 1915
PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY MORNING On Tuesday, July 27th, a euchre party and dance will be held in the Mechanics' Hall in aid of Red Cros8 funds. Speaking at meeting last week, Mr W. J. M'Lean said that each man should decide his own case, as he is the only one in possession of a full know ledge of all the circumstances. He deprecated the prevailing habit of criticising others fir not volunteering. For example-Smith saya :-"I won't go because Jones who is a property owner is not going." That statement only proves that if Jones is a shirker, so also is Smith, therefore the latter should not sit in judgment on the for mer. Moreover Jones has a property worth £5000. This war will cost Australia 40 millions a year. After the War Jones will probably be com pelled to contribute half his estate, or £2500, to the cost, which amount will pay for ten men at the front. There fore, Jones is a ten times more useful uian to the .Empire than critic Smith, who neither pays nor fights." For Children's...
PLANTING FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 July 1915
PLANTING FRUIT TREES. The presunt is an excellent time fur pluniiug any young fruit trees it is intended to put in tiie garden thin rea son. Drainage js one of the most im portant items to be seen to in the cul tivation of fruit; but in most Motion* occupied by amateurs in Canterbury, the drainage problem can be dismissed as non-existent, because the land has already been broken up by founda tions, drains, etc. Unless one has u very cold, wet .soil, it is advisable to plant early, bul" 11 by force of cir cumstances, the work cannot be -done now, any time up to the beginning ol August will do, and in cold, adhesive ground it is of ton better to plant some what late. In such positions it is a good plan to prepare a sufficient quan tity of line and good soil, and keep H under cover until planting time; this, used immediately around the roots, will, by reason of its fineness and wan=.th, assist the trees to form new ruits.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 July 1915
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rustious.'^ TWc is a big problem ahead oi' the man oh the laud. It is brought about by tlio turn in the tide that promises a prosperous season, and. the rally to the fighting line which is resulting from the recruiting campaign. It is the ques tion how the harvest is to be got in. Everything points to its being a bumper harvest. There are, of course, all the risks that attend niral industries, even at the best of times. But it doesn't do to neglecv to plan ahead because something unforeseen may come in to upset calculations. Therefore, the pro blem of how to handle the work de mands earnest attention now. Sugges tions have been made that city school boys and boy scouts should be pressed into ser .'ice. That sounds aill right; but those - who look into its practicability must be rather sceptical as to the re sults. The public school boys, of course, have hailed it with enthusiasm, and there are doubtless many of them who would do their very best to make good. I...
