HOME INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
H. OME INFLUENCE. - It is the home which moulds the -inds of our boys and girls-home in fluence, home example. Mothers and fathers should never forget that dur ing the first years of their boys' and girls' lives they look up to their par ents as gods-to be obeyed, to be imi tated in all things. Then comes the critical stage, when children have passed beyond the blind faith of ohild hood and learn to know their parents. Ilappy the mother and father who can fearlessly face this period knowing that their eltorts and their jives, though very faulty, yet bear the stamp of sin cerity. It argues ill for the home influence when "a long talk with mother" is not regarded as a privilege by the girls, for there are many subjects that only her handling is delicate enough to touch upon, and, on the other hand it is sad when "a chat with father1' is dreaded by the boys. The parents' treatment of each other does much to raise or lower them in the eyes of their children, and also inllu ence tile toy...
RIGHT TO DIE. "SELF-MURDER" OF A SUFFERING WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
RIGHT TO DIE. "SELF-MURDER" OF A SUFFER ING WIFE. A verdict of Folo-do-se, or self murder, was returned at the resumed inquest at Hampstead on Mrs. Sara Olga Jacoby, who took poison after having undergone four operations and been in ill-health for three years. Before this verdict was given the husband, a lace manufacturer, of Cre dition-road, West Hampstead, said that he distinctly wished the jury to return a verdict in accordance with the evi dence. His wife did only what she felt she had a perfect right to do. He did not desire them to return a verdict from sentiment, because if they did it would be an insult to his wife's mem ory. oJroseph Rand, a bath-chairman who .took Mrs. Jacoby out almost daily, said he used to buy endamol for her. Dr. Ludwig Freybergor said he had made an analysis and found veronal, which was the main constituent of endamol. Thirty grains was a fatal dose, but in the case of Mrs. Jacoby, with her disease, a smaller quantity would be fatal. She would have di...

He did not whip the horse, mind you. Like his ancieot namesake, Solomon was possessed of wisdom, having imbibed during his two-score and odd years a sullicient supply for every-day purposes. Hoe merely pushed Selim back a little out of the way of passers-by; then, show ing him a strap, and putting it under his very nose, he went to the off-silo and securely fastened one 'end of the strap to his foreleg close up to his body. Then throwing the other end across his shoulder, he fastened it to his near leg between the foot and pas torn joint, taking the strap up enough to raise the foot 'considerably off the ground. Then Solomon sat down t...
AN AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE TRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
AN AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE TRAIN. In California the mountain is car ?ied to lahomet, and the farmers are served by a travelling college. This is a tYaiu. The season 1911-12 was the fourth year of running, and close on 5,000 miles were covered in the last campaign. In the train individual ears were devoted to special subjects 2f agricultural and horticultural inter Dst, so that.persons interested in a spe cial line could visit that car in parti eilar, listen to the lecture of the spe cialist in charge of the car, and ask as many questions as they saw fit. The precise number of auditors at these lee tures during 1911-12 was 102,624, ac cording to a careful census taken at each stop of the train.

THE MANAGEMENT OF YOUNG PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
THE MANAGEMENT OF YOUNG PIGS. Our views as to what weight a pig should reach vary enormously. A friend of my ownu, once a well-known Berk shire breeder, made his prgs into ba coners in about thirty weeks or into porkers in. sixteen weeks, but I do not think that in these later days he wou!d be satisfied with the results, for 71 months is a long period to feed -a youngster for prime meat, whereans it the meat were too heavy the reduced price would remove all the incentive. A porker pig should pay very well in sixteen weeks and not be too fat, as just as in the case of the baconer th; lots down the price. Another once famous breeder friend fed his pigs until his hams, scaled 201b each but these were only seven months old, yet they afford an excellent idea as to the gross weight of the caroase. The curer of bacon requires not only lean meat, but small meat, hence the weight of a bacon pig should not ex ceed 140 to 160 lb., and it is precisely such meat' which obtains the best price and...

GAVE HIM SOME ADVICE. A Scotsman went to London for- a holiday. Walking along one of the streets, he noticed a bald-headed chemist stand ing at his shopdoor, and inquired if he had any hair restorer. "Yes, sir," said the- chemist, "step inside, please. There's an article I can recommend. Testimonials froni great men who have used it. It makes the hair grow in 24 hours." " Aweel," said the Scot, "ye can gie the top o' yer heid a bit rub wi't, and I'll look back in the morn to see ;I ye're telling the truth." The chemist returned the bottle to the shelf, and save the errand-boy the sack for laughing.

CAUSTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
CAUSTIO. Old John, as we will call him, has a very caustic tongue, and his son-a young fellow with a rooted objection tc work-is well aware of the fact. The other Sunday morning the young man was lying on his back in the plot of ground he calls his garden, when Old John strolled up. "Weel, feythur," began the son, rais ing himself on one elbow and lazily sur veying the weed-covered patch. " Wot's to think on'tP" "Woy," replied John, slowly, "i° ta's growing food for thysen an' thyson only, theer's nowt much to grumble at. It's a nice cropl" "Eh I" gasped the young man. "Nice crop! .Of whatP" " Thistles!" came the stinging retort. "It's a nice crop, aw sea, an' it ought to last one donkey all winter!"
WORTH A SECOND THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
WORTH A SECOND THOUGHT. The chronic borrower is a. neighbor hood nuisance. The best bosses are frequently the poorest workers. Prosperity has been the ruination of many a man. If you must carry a grievance around with you, keep it to yourself. Ignorance is not bliss when you are in the hands of a sharper. If your wife is a good cook don't for get to tell her so. She deserves the praise. The man who keeps the corners of his mouth turned up is a publio bene factor. The clock never complains of being overworked, and it puts in every min ute, too l If the reins are drawn too tightly the young folks are liable to run away from home. Because a couple are fine-looking is no sign they will get along fine once they are married. Many a cow kicks because that rs the only way she can tell you that something is wrong. If it becomes necessary to destroy the little kittens, don't let the children see you do it. It's queer how many men have busi ness in a neighboring town when a cir cus is billed f...

Not afraid, the lad faced 'the anary men with his upraised whip. "Hnw dnie you strike me when you know God sees you?" be cried; looking fearlessly into the angry man's face. The whip came down, but not on little Han? The man admired .the boy's cooraer and praised him for it, and sent him home with gifts rather than blows.

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
POULTRY NOTES. Too many chicks spoil the brood. A chick in the nest is worth two in the mind. The less the help the stronger the chicks. The proof of the hatching is the chirp of the chicks. The chick will never grind with the grit it never gets. Grit is a virtue in man and fowl. The lazier the hen the smaller the profits. Eggs to the number of 21,500,000 were inported into Great Britain last year. This interesting fact is reported by Mr. E. Brown F.L.S., in his an nual review of tihe poultry industry. "At no time," he states, "has the de mand been so great and prices so good as in the twelve months reoontly end ed. In 1913 there was a conslderable rise in the volume of eggs and poultry received from overseas, -as compared with 1912, yet prices. have beeoon grea ter. So far as native supplies are con crnecd, there has been a rise all round, showing that consumption is advancing more rapidly than production, whether native or foreign. What is true in Britain is equally the case in ot...
