DISTRICT NEWS. BRIAGOLONG. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 January 1914

DISTRICT NEWt. BRIAGOLONG. The weather is very dry here, and water supplies are running short. A fire broke out close to the town ship on New Year's Day, and spread rapidly. Mr. MI' Kinnon's homestead stood in danger for some time, as the wind was driving the fire towards it. Mrs. Clifford's farm was saved by real hard fighting. Mr. WV. Bennett was a heavy loser, having about 70 acres of grass burnt. A large body of men turned out (mostly from the sports ground, in holiday attire), and auc c,'eded in extinguishing it. The out break is supposed to be an act of in cendiarism. The New Year's sports were well patronised, the heat of the day being tempered by a soft breeze, which con tinued the whole afternoon. The day's festivities were wound up with an ex ceptionally good concert and dance in the evening.

AGRICULTURAL PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 January 1914

AGRICULTURAL PROSPEfCTB. The following summary of the condition of stock, crops, pastures, etc. for the month of December, 1918, is based upon reports received from the meteorological observers through out the State of Victoria: By the end of December the wheat harvest over the Wimmera, Mallee and Northern Plain country generally was In full swing, and in many in stances completed. High yields of ex cellent grain were being gathered al most everywhere, more especially in the western and southern parts of the Wimmera district and along the Avoca River. Instances of disappointing yields were, however, not infrequent, the principal cause for this being boisterous winds during harvest time. The Mallee and Northern Wimmnera appeared to have suffered most in this respect, losses of from one to two bags per acre being rather common. In some cases bailstorms caused addi tional destruction, an extreme case of this being reported from Mystic Lake, where a splendid crop of 800 acres was practi...

AN AUSTRALIAN ELISHA. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 January 1914

AN AUSTRALIAN ELISHA. Under the heading of "Some Elishas of Australia,:: Randolph Bed ford writes in the "Bulletin": Tyson's wealth obscured Tyson, as envy belittled him. To most people without money or fame it is enough for a man to have a great deal of money or fame to call their hatred in to action. Hils is a long story of cour age, enterprise, endurance and self denial: and he left Australia better than he found it. As a boy he drove cattle for wages; saved a little; bought a few bullocks in Riverina and sold them in Bendigo; and so played his part that he died worth seven. millions and didn't hurt anybody in the mak ing of it. His lie was admirably simple, and he achieved a reputation for meanness, because, as a million aire, he preferred camping in the open to sleeping in an hotel. They called hint a woman-hater because lie was too big a man to be indiscriminate, too good a tighter to be enslaved by sex passion. He had been too bash ful and too busy to get the mate lie wanted ...

THE AMATEUR'S NEED OF ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 16 January 1914

THE AMATEUR'S NEED OF ADVICE. Amateur poultry-keepers must not expect to succeed and find everything to go on smoothly at the first with out the aid of advice from some ex perienced person. This needs to be clearly understood. There is a great deal of knowledge to be acquired in the work of poultry-keeping, and there is no one who knows so much that cannot still learn more, even af ter having had years of practical ex perience. Fanciers of wide experience are generally glad of hints from oth ers as to their ways and methods, and are ready and willing still to learn. Beginners, however, are often too self reliant, and will neither ask for ad vice nor yet take it if it is offered freely. The result is they make many blunders often before they have well begun, and thus blight their prospects of success completely. "A good beginning is half the bat tle." But to be self-reliant and plunge hastily into the work without thought and care at the start is only to pave the way to failure. Let ...

ASHES FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 16 January 1914

ASHES FOR PIGS. It has been noted by pig-breeders that health and thrift are prolonged to a great degree by allowing coun stant access to ashes, and if salt be mixed with them, the effect is still lore marked, and the composition is piartaken of with greater relish. All feeders who have tried it pronounce tlie benefits unmistakable, and re sults most gratifying. Prof. Henry made some experiments in this line. and the following is what came of it: "Three pigs were taken at five mouths of age, and closely confined and fed maize-meal and hardwood ashes for six weeks. During this time they gained five and a-half pounds each per week, and consumed 281,_ poun:ds of maize-meal per week. For thirteen weeks thereafter they were fed no ashes whatever, and fell off in the consumption of corn meal to the average of 19% pounds'per week. Sev eral other experiments were tried, all showing the same approximate re sults." Feeding pigs is a sure paying crop. if good judgment in selection prevail, and...

Back to Nature. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 16 January 1914

Back to Nature. The waist-line which erst was so slender, And sometimes was high and then low, Is now disappearing completely, As pictures in fashion books show. I 1 ooked for the reason and found it, And so pass it on in all haste; We have cried, all these years, "Back to nature l" And in nature, you know, there's no waste. He was a young man-a candidate for an agricultural constituency-and he was sketching in glowing colors to the audience of rural roters the happy life the laborer would lead under an administration of the propagation of sweetness and light. "We have not yet three acres and a cow, but it will come. The piomised sanatorias are still for the future, but they will come." Similarly every item of his compre hensive programme was endorsed by. the same cry. Then he wpnt on to talk of prison reforms "I have not yet persoaally," he said, "been inside a oriminal luniatio asy lum." Then there came a voice from the back of the hall: "But it will come."

THE POULTRY YARD ADVANTAGES OF EARLY MOULTING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 16 January 1914

THE POULTRY YARQ ADVANTAGES OF EARLY, MOULTING. Those who have just commenced poultry keeping and have some last year's birds would do well to realise what those with experience have learnt, that a hen which moults be fore the winter is more valuable than a pullet, because she lays large eggs, and generally quite as many of them. It is wise to induce hens to moult be fore the winter wherever it can be arranged. When the hens shed their feathers in the warm weather it is a saving of over 30 per cent., as the feathers grow so much more quickly when the weather is warm; not only that, but the birds are ready for the winter work, and it is not as difficult to get them on to lay then as it is when they have moulted late and have conse quently felt the strain more. Those poultry keepers who keep their fowls especially for producing eggs for the table and markets should get their birds in order for laying. Some people have an idea that it is too stimulating and leaves the bird weak, but th...
