PRIVILEGES OF MANXMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 March 1915
■ PRIVILEGES OF MANXMEN. The (Incision of tlic Manx House of Keys not to raise the duties on beer and tea serves to remind her neigh bors that the Isle of .Man has a code of laws entirely its own. The island lias never been ruled by the laws of England, and although Parliament re serves the right, to make any Imperial enactment applicable to the Isle of Man, the privilege is seldom or never exorcised without consultation with the Manx people. These happy is landers have no armed forces to main tain, no income-tax, death, estate, or stamp duties to pay, and their Cus toms dues arc in most cases on a low er scale than in the United Kingdom. Manxwomen, too, have special pri vileges. Every female adult, widow, or spinster in the Isle of Man, wheth er she bo owner, occupier, or lodger, has r. vote for the House of Keys elec tions. Every widow enjoys half of her husband's personal estate and has a life interest in his real estate, and she cannot be deprived of this by will: whilst her wri...

THE UNCROWNED KAISER. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 April 1915
I " "" ! THE UNCROWNED KAISER. It is interesting to recall that the Kaiser has never been crowned. When tho timo approached for that great ceremony he made tremendous preparations. Everything was to be dazzllngly beautiful—masses of uni forms and gorgeous carpets. Unfor tunately, however, this cultured ruler overstepped the mark. Ho do cided that he should not be termed the Gorman Emperor, but Emperor of Germany. It therefore behoved him to be crowned in the latter capa city. The rulers of the German States refused to let tho gentleman •with tho moustacho assume so haughty a title. "Very well," said William, "I won't have any corona tion at all, then!" No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it for any one OlSe. ••
REMINDERS FOR THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 April 1915
REMINDERS FOR THE MONTH. Deal direct, with the consumer if possible, it pays best. Add Douglas' mixture to drinking water twice a week. Market all hens past their second season and give more attention to pullets and first year birds. Provide abundance of shell grit to forward pullets; it's easier to pre vent soft eggs than to stop the trou ble. j Isolate all birds showing a watery discharge from the nostrils or eye3. i Bathe eyes and wash mouths with bor ! acic acid of about 4 per cent. 1 strength. Always grade your eggs—size counts and so does color. Many prefer brown shelled eggs to white, but the (luality of the egg depends upon qual ity of food consumed in its produc tion. Poultry farmers will be well advis ed to overhaul houses, especially when made of material that during the sum mer shrinks and leaves cracks. All repairs to pens and shelter sheds should be done now, ere the autumn rains set in. Keep ground clean; turn up land required for sowing grasses, such as clovers, Engl...
WHY HENS REQUIRE A NITROGENOUS RATION. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 April 1915
WHY HENS REQUIRE A NITRO GENOUS RATION. One of the worst mistakes made by many poultry breeders is in trying to cut down feeding. Only last week a gentleman vinited my office and hand ed me three samples of "cheap" food On examination I found that practic ally all the nutriment had been re moved. I questioned him regarding the results obtained, since feeding the so-called egg food, which was nothing more than refuse from some mill, and ho replied, "That's my reason for call ing upon you." Since the birds have been fed on the rubbish the egg yield fell off 62 per cent, within a week. When we consider that the hen pro duces such valuable elements in a fresh egg, how, I ask, is It possible for her to keep faith with her owner? For unless we give her the raw ma terial. how can she convert fibre into proteids, etc.? There are tons of eggs produced which, when analysed, are found to contain nn excess of water, and a much diminished quantity of protein and fat, the result is the consuming ...
THE POULTRY YARD. NOVICES' MISTAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 April 1915
THE POULTRY YARD. NOVICES' MISTAKES. By H. V. Hawkins in the "Victorian Poultry Journal." People who buy eggs of varieties of fowls with which they are not familiar, or which they have seen only in adult form, aro very often surprised at the chick's appearance, and not infre quently Jump at the conclusion that they have been swindled. A chick that is all black when hatched is a rarity. The chicks of black varieties are nearly always can ary-colored on the underparts. It is in these black and white chicks that the novice very often finds results not in accord with his expectations; but irregularities sometimes occur in all varieties, even in carefully bred stock. As a rule the color comes right in the adult feathers. I have known a novice to purchase a setting of Black Orpingtons, have good hatching results, but, as the chicks were black and canary white, he destroyed the lot, and returned them to the breeder with a note stating that he had bought Black Orpingtons, not mongrels. Anot...
MOSES' ROCK DISCOVERED. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 April 1915
MOSES' ROCK DISCOVERED. The rock that Moses smote In the "'iMerncsp has been found, and the camp of the Israelites definitely loca ted. Such Is the substance of a long statement made by Dr. C. M. Coburn, Archaeologist to the World's Bible Conference, at Baltimore. Dr. Coburn told the story of tho passage by a party, of which he ivas a member, through Kadesh Barnea, the oasis near which the Israelites en camped for thirty-seven years, and where Moses gave his celebrated laws. After describing the historic rock from which water flowed, Dr. Co burn said he had also found conclu sively the assertion of sceptics that Moses gave no agricultural legisla tion. Dr. Coburn told of the inaccessibfl ity of the valuable relics of primitive Israelite civilisation, now carefully guarded in the Mosnne of Omnr, and nf the mummy of Joseph, of which no Christian is allowed to obtain a glimpse,
UHLANS AND THEIR LANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 April 1915
UHLANS AND THEIR LANCES. The Uhlan—tho cavalry arm of the Gorman army—has had his full share of fighting at Liego and at other places oil the long line of battle now raging. Splendid efficiency is the re putation which the Uhlan enjoys both at homo and in the camps of the en emy. This high standing was won mainly during tho Franco-Prussian War, when they did wonderful scout service and were no mean factor in beating dovyu the opposition of the French in the field. i The Uhlan hussar was borrowed from the Polish military system. Uhlan meant simply lancer. Hussar | is a word that comes from the lan guages of the Hungarians, meaning twenty. It commemorates tho time when every group of twenty men in the kingdom was required to furnish one cavalryman. So it means the re presentative of twenty men. The word dates from the time of Mathias Corvinus, when, in national Hungar ian levies, every twenty men had to furnish one fully-equipped horseman, who, in accordance with tho fact, was called ...
