CULTIVATION OF SUGAR BEET. PROBABLE RE-OPENING OF THE MAFFRA[?]ACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 19 July 1906
CULTIVATION OF SUGAR BEET. I PROBABLE RE-OPENING OF THE I MAFFRA -ACTORY. The proposal of the Government to re-open the Maffra sugar works on co operative lines ia attracting a good deal of attention in various parts of Gippaland. Several farmers in this locality (prominent among whom are Messrs Gibson aud Grant) were sup pliers to the factory when it was ia operation some time ago, and were "hit" rather severely. This has caused many others in the immediate neigh borhood to view the present proposal with a certain amount of suspicion. But one important point seems to be entirely overlooked, viz., the principles on which the factory were then conduc ted were quite different from the liberal terms now offered by the Government. It is proposed to run the works on strictly co-operative lines. The Gov ernment has no desire to swallow the oysters and leave the shells for the suppliers. Alter deducting working expenses, a small interest on the capital invested, and a nominal sum for depre...

TRAINING SHEPHERD DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 19 July 1906
TRAINING SHEPHERD D0G8. The natives of New Mexico train shepherd dogs as follows: — A pup Is taken from its mother as soon as possible. The breed of dog is immaterial. The young o£ a sheep or goat is taken away and the pup is substituted. After the first few days the pup is never fed except just before the Hock goes to pasture in the morn ing, and just after the s£eep are brought in at flight. As soon as he can walk he goes out with the flock and stays with it all day. Whenever he begins to anticipate supper by trying to drlve'the flock In before sun down he is punished. After he is about a year old he takes a flock out, guards it from other dogs and coyotes during .the day and brings it in at the proper time at night without su pervision or help. With a dog encoun tered In the hills with his flock all kinds of temptations are useless, for in spite of all allurements be will re main faithful to duty. Two contrasts of nature are the Island of Fire and the Lake of Snow. The Island of ...
AGRICULTURE. SEED POTATOES—VALUE OF SELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 19 July 1906
AGRICULTURE. SEED POTATOES—VALUE OF SELECTION. Considering the Importance of the ! pcftato crop, it is to be regretted that i in the past more systematic endeavors i have not been made by the agricul tural colleges in the different Stales lo establish a body of "facts" for the better guidance of the growers of this commodity. The practice of individu al growers themselves is in the main so variable and haphazard from year to year that it is impossible to ground on the aggregate experience any work ing conclusions of value. At present nearly every operation in the produc ' tion of a potato crop "is the subject of conflicting theories, and while this chaos of opinion exists it is vain to hope for any such all-round improve ment as we are beginning now to get in, say, wheatrgrowing. With most growers, the tendency is to seek the whole secret of success in the particular variety. But there is ample reason for insisting that, within certain limits—soil and tillage apart-—satisfactory mar...
USEFUL INFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 19 July 1906
USEFUL INFORMATION. Clean your lamp chimneys with dry ealt. It is found that a sprinkling of hops in the brine when bacon and hams are put in pickle adds greatly to the flavor of both, and enables them to be kept an indefinite period. Tomatoes may be preserved by boil ing together 1 pint vinegar, 3£ lbs. sugar, 1 oz. each of cloves, allspice, or cinuamon, for five minutes; add 7 lbs. tomatoes, and boil for half an hour. Keep in a stone jar. A raw egg, if swallowed in time, will effectually detach a fishbone fast ened in the throat, and the whites of two eggs will render the deadly corro sive sublimate as harmless as a dose of calomel. A careful housewife has discovered that common salt sprinkled over airp| object that is stained with lam^-hlac® will remove the dirt if rubbed in and then.: removed. Several applications spay be necessary. The soiling caused by persons lean ing their heads against a papered wall may be greatly lessened, if not obliter ated, by laying a .sheet of blotti...
THE WAY TO WIN A MAID. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 19 July 1906
•THE WAY TO WIN A MAID. Men -would have a good deal more chance* of success in their wooing if they understood better how girls like to he wooed. As it is, they have no idea on the subject that is at all use ful, and many a lover's suit is unsuc cessful just because he Is ignorant of a girl's tastes iu that direction Now, if girls had the matter in their own hands they would manage very differently. To begin with, they would never play the bashful lover. There is nothing loss calculated to make a girl say "yes" to the Important ques i lion than the wooing of a lover who'is j shy. She despises a man who can't i have courage enough to ask her bold ! lv, and when he stammers and hesi tales over it, instead of walking up boldly to the lion's mouth, he reduces his chances to a minimum. Above all things, woman delights in feeling the superior strength of man. When he comes and asks her I.to be his wife with a fine, bold front and manly bearing, the battle is half won. She respects and adm...
WOMAN'S WORLD. LOYALTY IN THE FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 19 July 1906
WOMAN'S WORLD. LOYALTY IN THE FAMILY. There is nothing more delightful in social lit© than, a family whose mem bers arc loyal one to another; and'few tilings are less peasant to behold than a family whose members have a knaclc of showing, on every occasion, the outlines of the skeleton said to exist in every man's closet. Oftentimes, it is true, we find those not of our own kin who fill a brother's or sister's place in our affcction, yet even from these true friends it is well to reserve a few confidences There are families where the members criticise each other's little faults and peculiar home ways freely, even to accidental callers, who can only feel disgust at such a lack of friendship down to those who have the best right to claim it, and the question immedi ately proposes itself: "How much bet ter shall I fare when I too am ab *In bright relief to these are families where honor, truth and loyalty are not mere words, where brother is defen ded against all comers, not only be ca...

HOW TO TALK TO MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 19 July 1906
HOW TO TALK TO MEN. Said a woman known for her popu larity: "I have a plan—possibly not original, but certainly successful—of ignoring the especially pleasant thing a man necessarily knows about him self. Each one has a particular ac complishment that this world invari ably 'tacks' to his name. He is pleased, of course, to possess this one accom plishment, but rest assured he secret ly wonders if it. can be the sum total of his'attractions. So I try to discover some other quality. I find he has the virtue of dressing well—then I also discover some immensely clever re marks of his. I make a point of men tioning it to him. i "If, on the other hand, he is clever, ; then I particularly admire a certain j suit of clothes or the fashion of his ! tie. If ho dances well, then I find he : has njade some good -business deals Be perfectly sure, my dear, he will think you vastly more appreciative than any other woman, and the unde fined gratitude he feels at the bright side of himself you have ...

FRESH AIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 26 July 1906
I am no "faddist," says Dr. Andrew Wilson. I do not believe in the man who elects to have fresh air. price. That kind of -HiSHTln my ex perience, at least, will subject you to draughts, but will be very careful to keep himself beyond their reach. Theoretically, he will risk anything for a fresh-air supply; in practice, he takes care that he avoids any untoward effects of an atmosphere which is re newed very rapidly. - But the fresh-air "faddist" has my sympathy, because he is on the right-track. His mistake is in trying to run on that track at the speed of an express train when he has at his command only a trolley. The most regret.table feature of this fresh air question, to my mind, is the want of any distinct boundary-line between the "faddists" and the sensible people. The first'set of persons want and de mand impossibilities; the second set all. I trust I have stated the case for fresh air impartially. ,AU animals tend to give forth to the air noxious things, and free ventilatio...
