Not Meant for Either. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 21 April 1914

Not Meant for Either. Many years ago, at a dinner party in Glasgow, there was present a law yer of very sharp practice fond of giving toasts or sentiments. After the cloth was removed and the bottle had gone around once or twice, the ladies withdrew to 'the drawing-room-all but one very plain old maid. She remained behind, and as the conversation began to get a little mas culine our friend of the "long robe" was anxious to get rid of the "old maid," and for this purpose rather prematurely asked the privilege of giving a toast. This being granted, he rose and gave the old toast of "Hon est men and bonnie lasses." (The toast was drunk w?ith honor, when the dame, who was sitting next the lawyer, rose from her seat, gave end of her Ibony finger, and, having said, "That toast neither applies to. you nor me," left the room. Telegrams were invented by the father of lies, undoubtedly. After all, anything will do for truth--writ ten on pink paper in somebody else's pencil scribble. That is o...

The Precise Man. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 21 April 1914

The Precise Man. "It looks like rain." "I beg your pardon." "I say it looks like rain." "What does?" "The weather." "The weather, my dear sir, is a condition. Rain is water in the act of falling from the clouds. It is im possilble that they should look alike." "What I meant was that the sky looked like rain." "Equally impossible. The sky is the blue vault above us-the seeming arch or dome that we call the hea vens. It does not resemble falling water in the least." "Well, then, if you are so thunder ingly particular, it looks as if it would rain.'" "As if what would rain?" "The weather, of course." "The weather, as before stated, be ing a condition, cannot rain." "The clouds then, confound you! I may not know as much about it as you do, but I've got enough sense to get in out of it, and you haven't," said the mnan, as he raised his um brella and walked away in a huff.

WASTE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 21 April 1914

WASTE.' By Wm. North. A great manufacturer of table mus tard once said that he would not mind making the -public a present of all the mustard they could eat so long as he was paid double for all they wasted. Sellers of garden seeds say much the same, and one could go on multiplying examples of the same sort of thing. Too good an example might be found in many a bird room, while the owner of a solitary cage bird is almost invariably wasteful. Some waste is inevitable, so far as the birds are concerned, though ac toual and total waste may be saved by giving all the sweepings- from the cage or aviary to the poultry, assum ing any are kept. Apart from that, however, a great deal may be done to keep down the seed bill, and the surprising thing is that so few fan ciers give the matter a thought. Seed mixtures are the most fruit ful cause of waste and, save in a large aviary, their use is not to be re commended. Every bird has its likes and dislikes, and given a dish of seed, it will fing ...

THE WHOLE TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 21 April 1914

THE WHOLE TRUTH. By Vernon Ralston.'- William Arnott came out of the offi ces of Sollenberg, Steinthal and Com pany in despair. He had had recom mendations from half-a-dozen- people when he came from Canada to London. He had expected that the keen London business men would have jumped at the chance he put .before them. Three of the six firms had declined to see him at all. The, great Jacob Roth stein, the famous .promoter, had heard him for five minutes and then had re marked: 'Irhis is wild-cattery, mein youag friend. That sort of b siness we do not touch." Arnott had told him wrathfully that he was so used to floating shady com panies that he did not know a sound business proposition when he saw it. And now Sollenberg, Steinthal and Company had frankly laughed. at him. Sollenberg himself had got up in the midst of his explanations to telephone to*a friend to meet him to supper at the Ritz the next evening, and then had turned to Mr. Arnott. "Nothing doing. We've twenty mines offer...

WHEN IS A COW OLD? [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 21 April 1914

WHEN IS A COW OLD? Provided that a cow has been an exceptional milker in. her prime, she may be worth keeping long after her best days on the chance that she may breed heifers like herself. Although there is no guarantee that a good cow will yield good milk ing heifers, it is certain that a bad cow will not, so the good ones should be kept as long as possible. The ulti mate loss of an old animal is nothing to the possible milk gain from a "train of good heifer calves. In an .ordinary way a cow should' be sold at her ninth or tenth year. She is then passing her top yield in milk, and is still worth a payable price for beef if in good condition; but there are many exceptions to this rule, and ill health may knock off an animal at any age. There is no reason to be lieve that the calves produced late in life will bie inferior, and there is no conclusive evidence that the milk of -an old cow is any poorer than that of a younger one; while if a young bull is used the balance will be kept....

A BRAW COUNTRY. Boy's Alleged Essay on Scotlarid. The following, stated to bey a-. Bunbury schoolboy, is- reprinted; from the "Southern Times," Bunbimryi ,'es ? Australia:- ? - "Scotland is a braw wee laid on the north of England. It has water nearly all round it, and whisky. over a large part of it. "The population is about four and a-half millions, including Mr. Andrew Carnegie. It has a peculiar language of its own, and if one can pronounce it coherently it is an infallible test of sobriety. It possesses consider able mineral wealLu, but very little of it finds its way out of the country. "Gold has at times 'been discovered in certain districts, as well as in the pockets of certain natives, .but in both cases it has been found difficult to work. The best-known exports of Scotland are riarry Lauder and Scotch whisky, though sufficient of the latter is retained in the country to satisfy the needs of home consumption.

WHEN WOMEN "POP THE QUESTION." How the Fair Sex Helps Backward Wooers. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 21 April 1914

WHEN WOMEN "POP THE QUESTION." How the Fair Sex Helps Backward Wooers. Mere man is \often a peculiarly "blate" mortal when it comes to such a crucial test of courage as "popping the question." So much; indeed, is this the case that numbers of the fair sex have had to propose to back ward suitors, and they didn't wait for Leap Year either. Few of them popped the question in so many words for that would have been unmaidenly, but they managed subtly and surely to lead the bashful swain into the toils almost before he was aware of it. Thus one diffident wooer who hesi tated to ask the fateful query was assisted. "Frank," said his loved one, "auntie says if she. likes my lover she will give us a house." There was-a short pause, and then she went on, slyly, "I think my aunt likes you, Frank." Then,, happily, Frank saw the drift of the remark, and, seizing the opportunity, won a wife and a house. Similarly situated was another dam sel who, having been assiduously wooed for some years'by on...

OSTRICH FARMING. INTERESTING DETAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 April 1914

OSTRICH FARMING. -4.4-~--- INTERESTING DETAILS. Although it, is 30 years since ostrich farting was introduced into Victoria by the Officer Brothers, who had a small run at Swan Hill, and latterly at Fairley, the industry has not developed. The farm near Echuca, stocked by birds from New South Wales last Friday, is a more ambiti ous effort, and may well be copied by landholders in other parts of the Northern district. hince their arrival at Wharparilla the flock has settled down quietly, and are already quite at home in their new surroundings. It is interesting to know that the Messrs Sanderson went into the ostrich business over the border two years ago with only six birds, and they now count their flock by the hundred. In Australia it is estimated that each full grown bird will give 3j1b of feathers at a plucking every eight.months, at an average of £3. The average return from a sheep for wool . is barely 10s. The birds are ready for plucking at eight months old, the first cutting ...

THE SEEDING SEASON. TREATMENT OF THE GRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 April 1914

THE SEEDING SEASON. TREATMENT OE THE GRAIN. _ iWriting in the "Australasian," the contributor "Hickory:' days:- Cereal growers in most districts have rc..c?ed, and others will how be look ing for the soaking rains to germinate the weeds, which, wile srtubned under, will improve the condition of the soil, as well as prlovide a clean seed-bed. While wheat growers are in no hurry to sow, those who always grow oats for feeding down with sheep, and for hay or grain, will be preparing to putthem in. . Not many sow oats on fallow land, but in the writer's experience, year in and year out, it pays to do so. That is to say, as long as the areas under wheat and- oats maintain their present proportions. Yields of over 50 bushels to the acre can be de pended upon, and with the price any way near 2s per bushel, it is a pay able proposition. With the prospec tive prices for all stock, there may' be shortly sullicient inducement to grow equal quantities of wheat and of oats, and use a great part o...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 April 1914

The battle which is raging in the Federal Parliament between the Liberal and Labor Parties is largely a conflict ef tactics. The Liberals have set their minds on what is known as a double dis solution-that is a dissolution of both Houses, the Senate and House of Representatives. The reason for this is that if the House of Representatives were dissolved alone and a good work ing Liberal majority were re turned, the Senate remaining as it is with an overwhelming pre ponderance of Labor, members, would prevent any measure of Liberal. legislation passed by the House of Representatives from becoming law, by rejecting all such measures. The Liberals are therefore striving to bring about a double dissolution with a view of trying to get a Liberal ma jority in the Senate as well as in the House of Representatives Certainly useful legislation can not be carried on. as matters stand at present. Any change would be better than the condi tion of things as they now exist. A bare majority of Libe...

Why Hair Falls Out. THE CAUSE—AND ITS PREVENTION. DR. N. DUCLAUD. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 April 1914

Why Hair Falls Out. THE CAUSE-AND ITS PREVENTION. DR. N. DUCLAUD. You.r hair falls out either because the roots shrivel up and die, or because the -scalp relaxes and loosens its hoTl upon the hair roots. This is almost invariably due to dfndruff germs, which rob the hair of its- nutrition, actually starving it to death.- To stop falling hair and. prevent total or partial bald ness, the dandruff germ must be de. stroyed. For this purpose, physicians and hair specialists now invariably pre scribe a lotion composed of - dram menthol crystals, 3 ounces of bay rum, and one ounce of lavona de composee. Rub well into the scalp with the fingen tips, and every dandruff germ will be destroyed within two or -three days. The hair will stop falling out and begin to grow at an amazing rate, and bristle to grow at an amazing rate, and brittle and scanty hair will quickly become soft, glossy and luxuriant. The results follownig the use of this formula are so truly remarkable that - I strongly advis...
