THE DARKEST HOUR. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
THE DAR1KEST HOURB By 31. I. Douglas. I. In a third-floor back room of a dis mal Pimlico lodging house u, grey hair ed, haggard looking man was seated In an uncomfortable chair, placed .near the window, from which he was watching for some expected arrival who was long in coning. The grate was guiltless of fire, and the only light came from the street -lamp outside. The door of the small cupboard in tie wall was wide open -and empty, as was also the coal scuttle, while the man's purse did not contain a single farthing. Even a casual observer would have seen at a glance that things had reached a desperate stage, and that only a miracle could avert one of those awful tragedies of poverty which although of frequent occurrence, rare ly find their way Into the daily pap ers to harrow the feelings of affluent readers. The clocks in the neighborhood struck seven. Presently there was the sound of a light footstep coming upstairs; a second later the door open ed and a girl came in. "Dad," she...

CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. Proper cultivation of the soil in creases the nitrifying bacteria, and this, in turn, increases productive ness-a most important consideration to the farmer. The knowledge of bac teria and their work is recent and limited; there are many in kind, and in spite of the amount of work done, scientists are only in the midst of their discovery. The practical far mer does well to let bacteriologists monopolise interest in the whole subject, except in so far as he can provide some conditions that have been demonstrated to be profitable. The work of bacteria, hoever, must come more and more into considera tion by the farmer, because Nature uses them to produce a vast amount of the change that is going on around us. In the consideration of the na ture of legumes, we must take into account the bacteria which they have associated with them, and through which they obtain the atmospheric nitrogen. It is true that bacteria must have favorable conditions that our plants re...
THE WRONG PLACE FOR FICTION [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
THE WRONG PLACE FOR FICTION Mr. Irvin S. Cobb, the American writer of short stories, returning from a trip in the Western States, found that a close friend of his had fallen into the hands of the law. Hie hur ried down to the friend's lawyers. "Why, Jack is the-dearest, kindest, most honest man in the world!" he said. "You must call me as a wit ness to his character." "Not while I'm his lawyer!" was the reply. "I know just what would happen. The other man's lawyer would ask your occu pation. And you'd say, 'I'm a writer of fiction.' And the lawyer would get up and stand over you and look into the dark recesses of your heart for a time. And by-and-by, despairing of finding one sweet, aspiring thought in you, he would turn to the jury. And he would exchange an intelli gent, liberrous smile with the twelve. And then he would sit down, and, without even troubling to look -in your direction, he would say, 'That is quite enough, Mr. Cobb! You may stand down!"'

DAIRYING. WHY WASH THE UDDER? [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
DAIRYING. WHY'WASH THE UDDER? There are many points in clean dairying which, if observed closely, would obviate milk contamination, and consequent complaints about in-. ferior cream and butter. Here are some points of advice: / Washing the cow's udder is fre quently necessary. Should the pad dock in which the cows have been accustomed to lie down during the night be, not clean-very few are clean enough-then the udders should he washed before milking. Cows for aging in unclean places, especially during drought, render washing their udders imperative. . The, cow-yard is usually muddy in some degree during wet weather. As the cow walks' to and from the bail she generally makes a beaten pach, and Avhen wet this track becomes a continuous manure track. The cow ticks up on to the udder pieces of this contaminated soil, and the-udder Is thus unclean when milking time begins. The milker' l'hands are often a fruitful source of milk contamination during the )peration of miking. The damp, dirt...
DAIRYING SUGGESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
DAIRYING SUGGESTIONS. The following suggestions are the experience of Mi. W. Al. Rider, of the Winona Agricultural College, U.S.A.: Test your herd for economic produc tion. Weigh milk from each cow night and morning, one day each month. Take samples of each milking and test it for butter fat. Knowing the milk and fat-given in one day, use these figures as an aver age day's production for the current month, and, by. multiplying the milk and fat, produced -by the number of days in the month, you obtain the total amount of milk and butter fat (in pounds) produced for one month. Weigh feed fed on day of test, -and fromlthe cost of each feed figure the cost of feed fed each cow on day of test. a From Ihe daily cost of feed per cow, compute the cost of lier feed for one month. If the milk is sold as milk, compute the value of each cow's milk for the month at the market price received. Knowing the money value of each cow's milk for the month, and the cost of her feed, one can find the net ...

The Evil that Men Do BY M. P. 'HIEL, Author of "The Eajah'a Sapphi,'. "Prince Zaleaki," etc. -= P~blished by special arrangemant i with Ward, Lock and Co, AAll Rights Beserved.] CHAPTER II.-(Continued). Drayton is a man of action, and the instant that white object appears through the murk, he makes a catch at it. His hand meets Letty Barnes' wrist and seizes it. But he has not to do with a weakling; Letty is strong, and they proceed to fight like two men, though there is no reason why they should, really: for if this letter be got from Letty, she can surely write another; but they are speedily in that state of mind in which men no longer reason. Passion possesses them, pants in their breath, stares in their eyes. "Let it-go you-shall " pants Dray ton, stooped to her hand* but Letty's fingers are a vice, though, if it were less dark, one would see her failing, as, with bitten lip and many a jerk and stumble she endures that rough usage to which Drayton is subjecting her. - And every ...

THE VIXEN. By LEWIN FITZHAMON. (ly Arrangement -with Ward, Lock and Co., Melbourne.) (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER -XLIV. Lady Pettigew stood in the witness. box. All trace of tears had gone; one might almost say. all trace of woman, too. It was the little vixen, Polly Hemmings who stood there, witll iouged cheels and blackened lashes. That mrake-up had a significance; it was a challenge to the world. Lady ',ettigew had fallen from her high es tate. As Sisbtone had stripped all tite airs and ilrevences from off the Countess, tainty sank lower and low er in misery and humiliation until she touched the bottom. Then came re action There was no longer any need of pretence, of airs, of graces. so Folly Remmings cast them grimly aside, and asrl-med the fighting spirit of old Joe Hemmings in their place. Therefore, was she made up to bide the ravages of the night's strug gle, but she was ostentatiotsly made up as a challenge to all her fine friends who crowded back.to Court reel day. With...

Too Much for the Ghost. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
Too Much for the Ghost. , Archbishop Thomson once "laid" a ghost in a very simple way. Staying at a country house With traditions of a family ghost, he was put up for the night in the "haunted chamber." In the morning his hoste were anx ious to know if he had seen anything. "Oh, yes," he replied; "about twelve o'clock" I heard a knock at the door. I said, 'Come in, come in.'" "'And did he come?" "Yes; an old sallow-looking man." "Yes, that is our ghost! What did you do?'" "I got out of bed and asked if he belonged to the house: He nodded as sent. I asked him if he were a par ishloner. He nodded again., Then I said, :I am anxious to build some-new schools; will you give me a subscrip tion?' He disappeared and I saw him no more!" The teacher was addressing his pu pils on the subjects of :aziness and idleness. He drew a terrible picturo of the habitual loafer-the mnan who dis likes work and who begs for all he gets. "Now, John," said the teacher to a little boy who had been very Inatte...
IN FANNY BURNEY'S GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
IN FANNY-BURNEY'S GARDEN. An amusing account of the horti cultural pursuits-and ineptitude-of General d'Arblay, the French emigre who. beceme Fanny Burney's hus band, is given in an article in the "Cornhill" by Sir Henry Lucy: The young couple began their mar ried life in apartments in a farm house on the summit of Bagden Hill. Thence they moved to a somewhat larger cottage at Bookham. Finally, when "Camilla" proved a financial success, they built themselves a house on the outskirts of Norbury Park, known during their residence as "'Camilla Cottage." From the first, M. d'Arblay, con scious of inadequacy to bear his fair share in the wherewithal for meeting the cost of the little household, de veloped a fearsome frenzy for gar dening. Pursuit of the vocation in volved him in delightfully ludicrous dilemmas. Writing under date April, 1794, from the cottage at Bookham, the young wife says: "Think of our horticultural shock last 'week when Mrs. Bailey, our land lady, entreated him not t...
