M'liay, :hire engineer, told me that blue gum was wanted; Mr Martin, the secretary, wrote to me on the 6;h, to that Effect; and when the converation on the tele. phone took-place, I asked Mr Martin if anything had been decided with egard to the long lengths, and he spoke of specifications, I asked, "Did you eupply specifications to other firms? "'He said Yes." " Then why didn't you supply me with one ?" His answer vas " I didn't know such a firm existed." I told him that the delay was caused through no reply being received from the Rubicon Co, to my letter of June 2nd, I again wrote to the com aony, and got a definite reply on June 11th. On the 10th, Mr Martin tele. phoned " What about signing the con tract? The Council is very anxious about the work being gone on with." I told him I was waiting, for a reply from the Rubicon Co, when he said if I did not commence with it the Counc...

YOU SHOULD BE DETER. MINED n rej ctiue the worthless and fre quently injuriously counterfeits which are sometimes published for the sake of greater pain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER & SONS' PUR VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EX, TRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing, and antiseptic powers.

YOU NEVER CAN TELL. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
YOU. NEVER CAN TELL. Spindrift and bilge and the world turns over! What is the dross and what the gold? The snake and the lark ha' nests in the clover, And which is best when the tale Is told? Thrice I sinned-oh, the heavens' joy ance! Breasts angelic shook wi' the joke; Once did good-oh, earth's annoy ance! Hell to pay and the bank gone broke! James drank poison at love's deris ion; John swigged ale, and swank in the sun, Throve, and came to a dark decision, And, "Christ-that I were the other one!" Seth in the swamp and Dan on the mountain Either dreamt that he chose his times: Dan bent young to a fevered foun tain; Seth grew old by the older slimes. The stolen dollar in Larry's pocket Turned a bullet to Harry's. side It missed by a hair his mother's loc ket: The thief lives yet and the good man died. Justice! Justice! Where is thy pal ace, Hope o' the planet's dark romance? Whose is the blood in thy broken chalice, Slave o' chance? But. there is no chance! -George Sterling.

SOME BULL'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
SOME BULL'S EYES. How the weeds do like the warm days after rain. Hit 'em a clip the minute they stick up their heads. A rickety fence is a standing invita tion for stock to break through. A staple or a post in time saves temper. It is just as good a thing for the farmer to hang up his barn broom as it is for his wife to do so with her broom. The farmer who makes drudges of his mother and sisters won't worry be cause his wife splits the kindling and carries in the coal. The man who wins is the man who can turn everything, even to an old tin can with a hole in the bottom, to some account. The only certain way to find out what sort of cows we have is to test them. Sometimes the results are very disappointing and we may wish we had not done it, but in the end it is greatly to our advantage. The limitations in farming are few er than in any other occupation of which we have any knowledge. The soil is a complex substance, but it has almost unlimited possibilities, when managed by skilled...
CAN YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
CAN YOU? Some men seem to have such a good idea of balance that they can pick a long ladder up in the middle, the first pop. Others can't, and so they try it a good while and waste a lot of strength. Just 'take those ladders now; balance them, and put a stripe of different colored paint right around the side pieces at the right place. Or, paint the round at the pivotal point some color other than that of the rest of the ladder. A
AGRICULTURE. TEST YOUR SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
iRICULTURE. . TEST YOUR SEEDS. Testing clover, grass seed, etc.: Take two common plates and get two pieces of cotton cloth about the size of the plates. Dip the cloths into warm water and spread one of them on a plate. Take a handful from the seed that is to be tested and place it on the table. Count out 100 seeds. Scatter these upon the wet cloth on the plate. Spread the other cloth over the seed and press it down. Then turn the other plate upside down on the plate with the seeds, leaving the cor ners of the cloths sticking out between the plates. Place where it is reason ably warm, and keep the cloths moist by sprinkling with water two-or three times ,o day. Keep a record of the number 2f seeds that have sprouted each day, until no more seeds show signs of life. A week is as long as this should take. If ninety to ninety five seeds grow, the germination is pretty good, but below ninety the value of the seed begins to be doubt ful.

"I call it, my lord," said the com plainant, "wearing a lie on his back." '"We need not use so strong a term," replied the Bishop.. "We- will call it a false hood."

WEIGHT OF SILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
WEIGHT OF SILAGE. Silage always loses some in weight, due to evaporation from the top, but the main part of the settling is due to the simple packing down of the silage in the silo. Ordinary silage weighs about 45 pounds to the cubic foot after it has settled in the silo. A silo 12 x 24 feet holds approximate ly 55 tons, or 110,000 pounds of corn silage..
HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? We get from the land what we put into it. If we build permanently we will be sheltered in later days; if we plant wisely we will read the content ment in the shade of the next genera tion. If a farm is regarded as merely a cold, money making enterprise we miss the harvest of good living in later years; but if we regard the farm as a home and cultivate those essen tials of satisfying living, comforts, trees and flowers, and things of beauty we reap a perennial harvest in the ripe years of old age when such things come to have a value far be yond grains and fat beasts.
VIM OF THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
VIM OF THE FARMER. The farmer's vim shows in getting at the work the minute it is ready. Shows, too, in the way he pushes that work. One day on and two days off point to failure in the near future. Vim shows, also, in the pride a man puts into his work. Some men show by their very faces that they love their work and are bound to do it just right. They are the ones that come out at the head of the heap. Vim keeps a man's heart bright and cheery. Takes a pretty good man to whistle just as cheerily when it rains as when it shines! The man with true vim in his heart can do it, and he will do it. Any men with vim down your way?
THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. According to DMr. Gilbert, author of "Fortunes for Farmers," spiritless Hodge is to be supplanted by an alert blue-smocked engineer, who will re ceive good wages and do the work of ten men, and be worth a hundred. If this be the type of man who is to do the tillage of the future, he will re quire a standard wage as will enable him to live in a good dwelling, and thus the rural housing problem will soon solve itself! Mr. Gilbert has evidently a warm heart for small holdings, but pertinently says, "they cannot be established anywhere-only on better soils can they succeed."
Safe. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
Safe. Burglar Bill (in hotel bedroom): Go quiet, Jim. There's a woman asleep in that room. Jim: It don't matter if she wakes up. Burglar Bill: It don't? One scream would- bring half the folks in the house to this room. Jim: She won't scream. If she wakes, up she'll throw the sheet over her head and keep still. Burglar Bill: Why will she? Jim:, Her hair is done up in curl papers-. . . - .
EGGS THAT CROAK. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
EGGS THAT CROAK. That young unhatched crocodiles-ut ter an audible croaking cry within the eggs in which they are laid is.averred by "Knowledge," and it adds that the cry is so loud and distinct that it can be heard when the eggs are burled, under one or two yards of sand. Dr. W. A. Lamborn tested the fact at Lagos, on the West African coast. He heard a croaking noise from be low a dry path, and, digging in the path to investigate the cause, he dis covered thirteen crocodile's eggs at a depth of about 18in. All the young crocodiles hatched out within half an hour of being dug up. So far back as 1899 Dr. Voeltzkow noticed that unhatched Madagascar crocodiles uttered a cry from the egg at a depth of two yards, and that any shock, as of a heavy tread, near the egg caused the baby crocodiles to produce this sound "with the mouth closed, as we produce hiccup sounds." In this way they inform the female crocodile when she visits the nest that they want her aid, whereupon she scrapes the sa...
DID YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
DID YOU? Did-you gile himma litt. He's a brother of man, And bearing about all the burden he can. Did you give him a smile? He was downcast and blue, And the smile would have helped him to battle it through. Did you give him your hand? He was slipping down hill, And the world; so I fancied, was using him ill. Did you give him a word? Did you show him the road, Or did you just let him go on with his load? Do you know what it means to be losing the fight, When a lift just in time might set everything right? Do you know what it means-just the clasp of a hand, When a man's borne about all a man ought to stand-? Did you ask what it was-way thue quivering lip? Why the half-suppressed sob, and the scalding tears drip? Were you brother of his when the time came of need? Did you.offer to help him, or didn't you heed?
