Thinks He's a Baby. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 20 January 1914
Thinks He's a Baby. Apparently there is no end to the vagaries of monomaniacs. In the Blockley alms house, Philadelphia, is a man once prom!-. nent in the city council and weighing 250 pounds, who imagines that he is a baby and enjoys himself sprawling on the floor, play ing with a pillow and the like. Some visit. orn were recently passing throu* the wards, when the "big baby" began to cry bitterly. "What's the matterP" one of them asked in alarm. "Boo-hool" cried the 950-pound baby; "you ought to be ashamed of yourselves. All you big men standing there and letting a little baby like me lie on the floor. Boo-hool"

Nevertheless ii is a plant of such great beauty that it ii worth many triaJs to finally succee6 with it. It may be raised in a pot in the house altogether. In planting out it should be placed in a deep, €eil drained soil, setting it eight or ten inches dees, and covering it well with leaves in Pn, tumn-for winter protection. Asits part ly shaded, or shaded during the warmest part of the day, is desirable. Donot dig fresh manure into the soil vhere i? i, planted.

The scholars attending St. James' Sun- day school were driven out in Mr. B. Dunbar's drag, at 10 o'clock. The parents and sober minded folk found their way to the rendesvous in the early afternoon. The young &nbsp; folk thus had an early start and made the most of their time, a games, paddling, or bathing in the river and racing about the ground. Dinner was served about 12 o'clock, by thle older folk, and the youngsters did not need any pressing to partake of the good things provided. It was much the same when tea was served later in the afternoon. The Rev. W. J. T. Pay and Mr Chaundy superin- tended the arrangements. They were assisted by the teachers. It is needless to say that the picnic- ers had a real happy time and returned home about 8 p.m. The following are the results of the racing events: Girls. Over 12: Ada ...

The farm consits of 210 acres, and is worked on the share system by Mr. W. Whittle and famiy. Sixty cows are milked, and the season &nbsp; lasts from about September till May, and where, as a few years ago, produce could be taken away in front ot a man on horseback, (the cream produced from the Lully Brae farm is the largest in the district, and among the top suppliers &nbsp; to the Gormandale butter factory. The returns are good. They compare favorably with land worth &nbsp; £20 to £30 an acre on the flat country.

With a fine family to help him, that curse of hills undergrowth has no chance on Lully Brae farm, where there is a rich spread of pasture, consisting principally of cocksfoot and cl...
