MEAT BELOW COST PRICE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 23 June 1914
MEAT BELOW COST PRICE. The shortage of fat stock lias caused a serious rise in the wholesale price of beef and mutton in West Australia. Bullocks have been sold at £17, and wethers at up to 55s. The State Butchery department bought 37 lb. medium sheep at 27s, an average of 9d per lb., but is retailing mutton at 3d lb. A meeting of master, butchers discussed the action of the Govern ment in selling mutton 4d. lb. under cost price, and passed a resolution con demning the unbusinesslike manage ment of the State butcheries and censuring the Ministry. The Minister of Lands (Mr Bath), in reply, declared that the State butcheries are not dependent upon tho auction sales for supplies. Tho pres. ent high prices were merely a passing phase, and the Government's policy was to maintain a uniform price, balancing high rates in the dear season with the low ones o£ the cheap period, and retailing only for cash with counter delivery. .

The circular asserts that the police are taking names off the rolls, that in places seventy five per cont ot Labor voters have disfranchished and so on. In a much more guarded fashion, the " Worker," Labods,Sydn&lt;?y orKan, is working on the lines of the circular- Even the "Worker," thougli it does not make laugh able misstatements about 75 per cent- disfranchisements, ' gives the following in one of its leading notes It is becoming more evident every day that the Cook crowd are- determined to thimble rig the electoral machi nery as much as possible."

HOW DO WE KNOW A GOOD FARMER? [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
HOW DO WE KNOW A GOOD FARMER? 1-1 ow do we know that a man is a good farmer? He will not tell you he is; he is too modest for that. But let's lock arms with him and take a tramp across his farm this afternoon; for seeing is believing. He is doing to-day's work to-day. That is a pretty good sign of a thor ough farmer. Things are kept pick ed up around his buildings. That we like, too. He takes us around where the cattle run against the line fences, and every rail that is out of its place he puts ?back where it belongs. On the way through the pasture he stops to rub the nose of the little heifer. She likes it and shows that she is on speaking terms with her master. In Ills granary there is a bit of grain lett over from last year, and more coming in soon from this year's grow ing. Coming home from school the boys and girls call out .is soon as they are in sight: "Hello, daddy!" And with a smile on her face the good wife says: "I'm glad to' have you home again, husband!" The neighbor, p...
FOR THE FARMER. THE FARM MANAGER. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
FOR THE FARMER. THE FARM MANAGER. More than a special knack or abil ity is required to make a farm man ager. There must be even develop ment and mastery of many powers, thorough understanding of all the es sentials of the business, self-training and wise use of the abilities of others. Train yourself, therefore, to think of the manager's work as the post of the chief engineer. Recognise that 110 matter how many duties are pro perly done, failure is certain if fuel and steam fall, or if brakes and throt tle are not always under control. The manager's task is to make many per sonalities act as an unit-to harmon ise the interplay of many departments. In the beginning list, group and ana lyse, the work that fills the calendar of successful managers-that goes on at your farm. Reduce your detail to system and assign it to subordinates. Make sure that you are caring for to day's and to-morrow's work and men, funds and service-that your policy upon management is well-balanced and full-round...

CHILDREN'S BEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
CHILDREN'S BEDS. A child's bed should slope a little from the head to the toot, so that the head may be a little higher than the feet, but never bend the neck to get the head on to a pillow. This makes the child round-shouldered, cramps the veins and arteries, and interferes with the free circulation of the blood. Even when a child is several years old the pillow should be thin and made of hair, and not on any account of feath ers.

HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY AND HAPPY HOMES. The object o£ tliis article is to im press upon the minds of our young women readers tlmt the refinements of fashion, the duties of the toilet, and whatever else composes the harmless amusements of young women, should on no account, unless in very particu lar instances, impede their course of instruction in the more useful and lasting duties of domestic life. To preserve a house, however humble, or however costly, in the best possible order, to have a knowledge in the making up of female attire, and to be learned in the divers processes of cookery, are qualities absolutely es sential to all young women, if they have any ambition to be placed at the head of a domestic establishment. The house being the appropriate kingdom of the wife, it is necessary that she should be a thorough mistress of all its faults, and in no instance be left at the mercy of servants, who, even if anxious to please, are seldom competent to carry on a household in its diffe...

MARRIAGE PROPOSALS OF FAMOUS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
MARRIAGE PROPOSALS FAMOUS MEN. Timidity can scarcely be said to have marked the wooings and propo sals of some of the men whose names are household words, although the manner in which some of them "pop ped the question" provides a hint or two for those anxious bachelors who wish to propose in a pretty and ar tistic manner. Nothing could have been more charming than the way Daniel Webster proposed. One day, when kneeling before his lady-love, he suddenly dropped the skein of silk she was winding off his hands, and made with a piece of tape half a true lover's knot. The lady (a Miss Flet cher) "completed it, and a kiss sealed the bargain. "Do you know, people say we are going tp be married?" said Sir Alex ander Duff Gordon one day to the beautiful Lady Austin, and before she could reply he added, "Shall we make it true?" And they did. Tolstoi was 'bold as usual. He pro posed by letter, in which he wrote: "Tell me sincerely, do you wish to foe my wife? But only if you can say 'yes' fea...
