Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 19 May 1914

Miscellaneous. Light blue eyes are usually the most powerful, and grey come next. Over 375,001,000 herrings have beeu landed iu the harbor at Great Yarmouth in a single season. Cats hate water, probably because their fur has nothing oily about it, and consequently takes a long time to dry. The greatest number of deaths take place not just after midnight, as popularity supposed, but between five and six o'clock in the morning. Strikes are by no means modern institutions. Considerable over 300 years ago workmen at Dover struck for a minimum wage of Gd a day. Selsey was formerly a cathedral city. 22 bishops reigning there After the see was removed to Chichester the waves washed away all traces of Selsey Cathedral. During 1901 the average weekly wage of employees on the 27 prin cipal railways in the United King dom was 25s 0d; by 1911 it had increased to '26s S^d.

Items from "Punch." [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 19 May 1914

Items from "Punch." Commissioner Brokensliire, of the Board of Health, says some brews of Ballarat beer drive men absolutely mad. He wants some thing taken out of the beer. Better try preventing something being put in—the noses of the men, for instance. Mr E. D. Milieu threatens to checkmate the opponents of national regiments. His back has been put up by criticism, or his bloods boils, or some other physical phenomenon has occurred to make him deter mined to go on. It can't be the working of his brain, or he would end the whole idea. Although the Senate threatens to disallow the new regulation, Milieu is proceed* ing to form three special regiments in Sydney, and the old Victorian Scottish is once again "estab lished." Already the regiments are technically in existence, and even if the Senate wipes out^ the regiments they will remain, ibis is due to a clever move on the De fence Minister's part. The Gover nor-General is empowered to form and establish any regiments he likes, and on...

Towel and Slate Germs. STATE SCHOOL DANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 19 May 1914

Towel and Slate Germs. STATK SCHOOL DANGERS. Mr Annilage, district inspector, in an address at Tallangatta spoke very strongly against the practice, still prevalent in some schools, of allowing children to drink lrotu ves sels common to all; "roller-towel," on which all aud sundry dried bauds and faces after washing; of the school slates, on which too uiany children worked;,aud, iiually, of the absence from rnauy schools of a simply-constructed incinerator, iu which litter and lunch-papers might be safely aud speedily destroyed. The common drlukiug vessel was, he said, undeniably as prolific a source of disease as the "roller towel" was a menace to the health of the children. Mr Tate's oft quoted phrase, "The flora and fauna of the school slate" should at least have ridiculed that gerrn ladeu danger out of existence years ago.

POULTRY. WHAT IS A PULLET? [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 22 May 1914

p o u l t Kir." WHAT IS A PULLET? There seems to be a hazy, notion among some farmers as to the exact meaning of the terms used to describe young and old stock. A pullet, strictly speaking, is a female under one year old. But in Australia we call a fowl a pullet until she has completed her first year's laying. Similarly, we call a male bird cockerel until he has at least entered well upon his first year in the breeding pen. It is not ad visable to breed from birds younger than one year.

DEVELOPMENT OF PULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 22 May 1914

DEVELOPMENT OF PULLETS, Those who are raising pullets for laying should note the food that is best for making the cockerels fit for market, and that which is best for de velopment of the laying pullets. The growing pullets should be fed entirely with a view to quick developments of the frame and egg-producing organs; therefore, it stands to reason that the food which is best for the laying hen is right for pullets. There is nothing better for growth than milk, bran, a little cooked meat given constantly, and for the evening meal sound oats and wheat. Food should never bo given in excess, for not only is the food wasted, but the digestive organs of the birds become weakened. Maiza should be sparingly fed, especially during the summer months, as it has che tendency to cause internal fat, which is one of tne greatest draw backs to egg-producing.

INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 22 May 1914

INFLUENCE. Our daily behavior, ; our manners and morals, have a power over oth ers that never ceases, nor can cease, until the poor waves of time break into nothingness upon the eternal shore. Therefore it is well that wo should have a clear view of that great force of life which we call "in •lluence."' The word is not ill-chosen. Influence is something that flows into you, whether you wish it or not, as the air around you will enter your lungs without your thinking about it. And as it is not needful even that you should know anything about your lungs in order that the air may enter them, so all vilenesses or sweetnesses may enter into your character by the influence of others, and do you either good or evil; and whether you know you are being affected or not, you are being affected by a necessary law of your being. Therefore "influence" is that power which one man exercises over another, modifying and deter mining his thoughts and actions, and that influence may be exercised with o...

A FARMER'S CREED. ■ For this day I will do my 'best to do everything just right; to be good and kind to every living thing I have any thing to do with; to ibe thankful that I live in sucli a good world; to make that world a little bit better; to think some new thought; to read a page or two from some good book; to look up from my work long enough to see what my neighbor is doing so well; to strike some blow for the right; to get a little nearer to the heart of my wife and children; and to ask God to help me make to-morrow a better day, a much better day, than this has been.

WITH DEADLY EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 22 May 1914

WITH DEADLY EFFECT. A malign passion may be the effect - of a disease; if not, it will tend di rectly to produce that disease (says a physician). Avarice, long indulged, destroys the normal balance of the brain, and at length shrivels it up hy concentrating nourishment on the part which is concerned with getting and holding. Outbursts of anger strike at the heart. Many a man has dropped dead in the heat of rage. Moroseness is very effectual in pro ducing disease. It acts specially upr on the liver and the digestive organs. The seat of the affections is in the brain. This suffers first; afterwards, in course of time, the organs which it controls. To the vain man one can only ex tend pity or contempt. Writing of vain-glory, Bacon said: "Glorious (i.e., boastful)' men are the scorn of wise men, the abomination of-fools, the idol of parasites, and the slaves of their own vaunts." But Bacon did not coi. fuse vain-glory with pride in its best sense. Money can't buy the loyalty of a dog or...
