"Jim" Semmens. Id Melbourne " Punch " of September 10;h, appears the following concerning Colonel J. M. Semmens, at one time a resident of JRushworth :—"Nearly everybody knows Colonel Semmens as Jim Semmens, and everybody likes him. He is the sort of man who just had to be called ' Jim.' No other name would have fitted him. He has all the frank, friendly bluff, honest qualities which associate themselves round the name of 'Jim.' He is tall and thin. He has no particular form, no comeliaess. Yet everybody who knows him adores him. He is not a physical culture expert, and yet many a physioai culture expert would be glad to have the strength of Jim Semmens. He is one bf those men who are built of catgut and steel wire—just built anyhow, but stroDg and enduring as fsrro concrete. Jim Semmens possesses wonderful stamina and a marvellous capaoify for work of any kind, physical or mental. He can delve infc0 anything, and stick at it without letting up till the thing is finished.

The season's prospects daily become worse owing to the want of rain and the position may now be regarded as extreme The crops have hung out wonderfully well and it does indeed seem a great pity that we are not blesEed with a good fall.of rain, which would even now work wonders. The season is a remarkable one, inasmuch as we have gone right through the winter (xractically without rain. Miss E. M. Taylor, who has been acting as assistant teacher in the Rushworth State school for the past two years, has been transferred to a position in the metropolitan district. The pupils of her class, previous to the holidays, presented ' Miss Taylor with a silver serviette ring as a token of the esteem and affection in wh'ch she is held by them.

MONEY IN PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

MONEY IN PIGS. The rearing of pigs was the subject of an interesting paper read by Mr. F. Gamlin recently before the members of the Otakeho branch of the N.Z. Far mers' Union. Pigs have the reputa tion of being dirty animals, said Mr. Gamlin, but if properly housed and looked after are one of the most pro fitable, as well as the most interesting products of the farm, and it is sur prising how few farms have a really well-equipped piggery. It seems where the pig is concerned "any old thing will do." The extra profit will soon repay the small expenditure ou a good comfortable house. For gener al requirements I consider that a build ing 30ft. by 7ft., with wood floor, di vided into four compartments, three for breeding sows, each Oft. by 7ft., a rail placed about 10 inches out from wall and the same distance above the floor is necessary to prevent the sow from overlaying her young. The re maining space, 12ft. by 7ft., I use for a fattening pen, each compartment having a pen in front, f...

The Four Brass Plates. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

The Four Brass Plates. By Percival P. Ingram. While rummaging in ah old chest at Highlawn, a house in the Midlands which I have just inherited, together with an acceptable fortune and a .vast quantity of lumber, I came across the following strange document, wrapped around a curious brass plate, with some words engraved upon it. The document was evidently penned, at infinite trouble, by my grandfather. It would be a pity to let so dramatic a story as it tells remain unpublished, and therefore I give it to the world. The things I am about to set forth here (the paper opened) are some that may, in time to come, benefit me in great measure. Therefore, lest I for get that part which is remembered simply from words of my father, and later, those facts that I have myself discovered, I write this paper. And, if Fate decrees that I shall pass away before I carry the investigation to the end, I leave the tiling in such shape that those who come after me may take it up and regain that which sh...

THE TURMOIL Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. and Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

THE TURMOIL By PAUL URQUHART. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. and Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VII. The situation was not an altogether pleasant one as far as I was con cerned. • I did not care a snap of the fingers for Madame Hanoteaux, but I felt it was hardly playing the game to impose upon the woman in the way I was doing in order to get from her her husband's secret. But while I was in this fr^ame of mind I recalled the face of Joan, looking th'rough the bars of the turret window, and I hardened my heart. " Madame Hanoteaux," I whis pered, gently raising her tear-stained face, "what is the matter? Let mc comfort you." Her only answer was a renewed outburst of sobbing. . " Tell me your troubles," I went on consolingly. " Perhaps I can help you." "Ah, monsieur, no one can help me! I am doomed to bear my burden by myself. I must carry my broken heart to the grave. And I am so young—so young." The recollection of her youth seemed to chee...

About Paints. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

About Paints. Unquestionably, paint is used to a great extent in Australia, owing to the .number of wooden dwellings; but it is a regrettable fact that a very small percentage of the paint used is "made in Australia." Thoughtful peo ple should recognise the value to themselves and Australia generally of encouraging and using paints, etc., made by our own people; work per formed in this country must be for the good of all. Work draws a population needing to be housed, clothed and fed. Workers are consumers of farm and station products; they create a home market, which is always the best. Believing in the truth of these facts, Messrs. Charles Atkins and Sons Pty. Ltd., of South Melbourne, have laid down the latest and best paint-making plant procurable, and are employing only the finest raw ma terials in the production of their "Aeon" brand of house and implement paints. To ensure reliability and uni , fortuity in the "Aeon" paints, they employ two qualified manufacturing chemists. Su...

OLD SHOES FOR LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

OLD SHOES FOR LUCK. Few people are aware of the origin of the old custom of throwing shoes after a newly married couple. Many people are under the impression that it is done 'for .luck," whereas it is - merely a corruption of a very old pro ceeding, when the bride's father used to hand over a shoe to the bridegroom as a sign that he gave him full posses sion of his daughter. • From all time shoes have denoted possession—as the old expression of "stepping into his shoes" shows. When a Bedouin chief is dying, one of his last acts is to hand over to his eldest son, or whoever his heir may be, his shoes as a token of his 'taking his place. . In many Eastern cities a pair of shoes placed outside a shut door mean that no one dare enter, and in Benares if a woman wishes to turn her atten tion from her market bag for a mo ment, she makes sure that it will be untouched by leaving her shoes by it. Even in the Bible the shoe is used as a symbol of possession, for Ruth's relative handed over a ...

POT-BELLIED CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

POT-BELLIED CALVES. The tendency to be pot-bellied i« rarely found in cattle over one year old. The condition is caused by a weakness of the young animal, and particularly of calves that are being reared on a good deal of liquid food. Pot-bellies rarely occur with cattle of any age on the grass or with Nature's treatment. Its presence is due to ar tiflcial feeding, and is often associated with indigestion. A calf with a pot belly is never pleasant to look upon, for its irregular form is not pleasing to the eye. The fore and hind-quarters are usually of normal size, but the belly is distended to abnormal propor tions. No one looks on these animals as addicted to a serious disease that will mar their usefulness or terminate fatally; but where there are calves of equal age, some correctly proportion ed and others extremely "podgy," the former will invariably make more ra pid progress, give greater satisfaction and finally pay the best. One never sees a pot-bellied beast in the best con...

On Reflection. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914

On Reflection. "Wife: You looked very foolish when you proposed to me! Husband: Well, my dear, maybe I was! - -.The . guests at the table were dis cussing, diets. "I lived on eggs and milk for two months," remarked one lady, "and gained ten pounds." "And I," said a gentleman, "lived for over a year on nothing hut milk, and gained in weight every day." "Mercy!" said the chorus. "How did you manage to do it?" The gentleman ' smiled. "I cannot say that I remember," he replied; "but I presume my method was similar to that of other babies."
