THE DOUBLE DISSOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
THE DOUBLE DISSOLUTION Now that the double dissolution is a foregone conclusion, both par ties have the opportunity of dis playing their strength at the ballot box. The appeal to the country, it is to be hoped, will result in re turning to Parliament a majority, and it must be a working majority in both Houses. If not the same state of affairs will be continued as have prevailed during the last 12 months. Every one will admit that the last year has simply been a waste of precious time so far as the Federal Parliament is con cerned. Many people think, and wisely so too, that it would have been a wise step on the part of ,the Prime Minister, when he first took office, if he had acted. as he did last week, and precipitated another election following on that of last May. If he had moved in this direction, and Mr Fisher had been sent for he could not have formed an Administration, and the conse quence would have been that the House would have been dissolved. As the power has now been con...
SLEEP AND SOME GREAT MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
SLEEP AND SOME GREAT MEN. It was Cobden's boast that he could sleep at will. Said he: "If I had not had the faculty of sleeping hle a dead fish in five minutes after the most ex oiting mental effort, and with the cor tainty of having oblivion for six con secutive hours, I should not have been alive now." Gladstone's sovereign rules were deliberate mastication of his food and "always eight hours' sleep." So importaut was this latter consideration that he would never compose anything after six o'clock at night, as to do so would affect his sleep. Bright oom posed his speeches in bed; that tre mendou.; oration with "the angel of death" and all complete was thought out under his nightcap. Doctor Dol linger, a suffer from insoninia, learnt by heart throoe books of the Odyssey when seventy years of age, in order to be ablo to say ?hem over to himself in the silent watches of the night. T]iiers was one of the men to whom nnmuch sleep meant life. He fell fast asleep when discussing with Lor...

ALWAYS PICKING SOMETHING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
ALWAYS PICKING SOMETHING. The Bishop of Worcester told a :apital story the other day in connec 'ion with the efforts of the church In hat part of the country to alleviate she lot of the hoppers who flock into Worcestershiro in Septemiber by the housand. ('ne of the workers who had gone "wnc to the hop fields to assist met a Jilop:dated individual in a country ane who, in response to a questiun, laid he was a picker. This did not :onvey much to the enquirer, and he tursued the subject. The hop-picker eadily responded. He said "In the summer I picks peas and sruit; then, when autumn comes round I picks hops; and in the winter, when she weather is dull. I picks pockets. rheat when I'm caught I pick oakum. 'm kept nice and warm during the, )oid months and then. when the nice lays come round again I start pes. sicking, and so on again."
THE DOT AND DASH GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
THE DOT AND DASH GIRL.. At a time when the cry of women in* rading the sphere of men's legitimate employment is loud in the land, it is :nu;reati1ng to recall (says the Sydney "Daily Telegraph") how much enoour agement they got in that campaign Irom men themselves. They have re cently carried another citadel in the Electric Telegraph Department in Syd ney. A visitor to that wonderful oen tre of activity, the operating-room, will find girls transcribing upon typewriters messages from the dot and dash tapes, that are known in technical terms the tape from the Gell transmitter. "And," prophesies a head of a de partment, "it is only a matter of time until the girls will be on the Gell ma. chines themselves. Of course it is a matter of individual intelligence and smartness but there is really no reason owhy they should not do the whole of the work iinsead of only reading." To the uninitiated the Morse oode presents somosthing infinitely more put .ling than litman's shorthand, but, lie ev...
USING SUPERPHOSPHATES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
USINC SUPERPHOSPHATES. When superphosphate is spread over the soil or applied by drill,the phosphoric acid in it, being in a6 wateo soluble con lition, is dissolved when sufficient rain falls, and prmeoates everywhere through thei surrounding soil, in which it is che mically precipitated in a state of fineness much nore minute than can be obtained by mechanical grinding. Of course, if the superphosphate remained in a sol uble conditions, it would be washed away by heavy rain and lost, but the lime and other salts present in most soils may be said to nurse and hold it in a precipitated form until the tender little fibres of ithe plant rootlets come along in search of nourishment in an available form, andhby the mild acidity of their feeding organ isms separate it again from the soil coin binations and absorb it into their sys tem. It is the intimate intermixture of the phosphate with the. soil particles and its minuto chemical fineness whfich render superphosphate- more efficacious a...
WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosino.") There is a perfect crazoe for tulle, Hlats are made of it, or trimmed with it, and it makes the necessary vest to the simple little bodices which we are wearing. The tendency nowadays is all for tralnsparency as regards the ad jucits of our dress. Everything is phllemeral, and how light, how fly away, how transparent, is the general senemel A frameo of the softest shad owy tulle, chiffon, gauze, or lace sur rounds the face It might be all blown away if it were not for a redeeming, utterly incongruous smart velvet crown-and we call it a hat. I saw an instaneong model the other day, all clouds of shot grey and violet tullo, crystallising into something which was half trimmiung, half crown; all one blur on mcror velvet, mauve and grey. Almost every frock with pretensi os to novelty is draped. The sheathhMe underskirt, over which the tunic dis posed itself more or less gracefully is no longer allowed, and the underskirt now receives as much attention ...
DEHORNING CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
UEHORNINC CATTLE. Dehorning should be done when cat tie are young. The best time is when they are from two days to a week old. At that age there is nothing else so good for the purpose as caustic pot ash. Clip off the hair closely about the horn buttons and rub the caustic potash on the skin, being careful to cover a spot about as large as a nickel coin. Rub well, but do not use enough to allow any to run down on the calf's face or into his eyes; as the chemical will burn ar cauterize any living tissue. Carefully wrap the end of the potash stick to be held with sev eral thicknesses of paper to prevent injury to the fingers. Wet the end to be used and after use wipe it dry with cloth or paper before replacingjn the bottle. A small piece of the caustio may be used and the stub thrown awyv, as it is cheap. Keep the calf in the dry for a day or two after treatment. One good application will kill the horn. A small bottle of caus tio potash sticks will cost but about a half a crown at the...
ESPECIALLY FOR SOME HUSBANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
ESPECIALLY FOR SOME HUSBANDS.. Mr. II. L. R.ann writes in " Kim ball's Dairy Farmer" :-We never could understand why some men will rig up the cow barn with every new-fangled device on the market, from an auto matio litter carrier to form-fitting stanchions, and still allow their wives to get along with a decrepio, broken backed rheumatic cook stove that first saw the light of day thirty years be fore the war with Mexico. What chance has a young bride, who learned every thing at college except how to hash ,brown potaoes, with a stove that has a. coughing spell every few minutes, and floods the ktichen with soft coal smoke. .But then, this world is full of bilious husbands who married some prize winner in the Latin course, and woke up later to find that while she could pin the shoulders of a Greek root to the mat three times.out of five she didn't know whether a cook stove could be started from the seat or had to be cranked with a half hitch.
THE MILKING PERIOD. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
THE MILKING PERIOD., the short way with the poor milker is to weed them out. A cow in poor condition may be allowed two months in which to recruit her strength. In the ease of the average cow the milk-" ing can be continued until within a month of calving. If a cow is in low condition, it is better to resort to higher feeding than to dry off. Cows are known that have been treated thus for years, sometimes being milked to within a month of calving, that have carried as good an appearance and produced equally good calves as those which run dry nearly three times as long. Six weeks may be considered the average period during which a cow should be dry unless the circumstances are exceptional. It is, however, the extraordinary milker that occasions the greatest dilliculty. There are some deep milkers that are the despair of their owners, who would often enough be willing to accord them a reasonable period of rest if there was a possibility of drying them off without having to take consid...
DESTRUCTION OF CHARLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
DESTRUCTION OF CHARLOCK. The seeds of charlock or wild mus tard can lie dormant for many years in the soil, -and then the plant sud denly appears, when theOland is brought under cultivation. In a root crop the weed can be kept down by hoeing or other mechanical means, but in a cereal crop this is practical ly impossible, with the result that the weeds produce a fresh supply of seed which is shed and returned to the soil. Some years ago a Frenchman discovered that charlock could be.de stroyed by spraying with solution of copper sulphate (blue-stone) without damage to the cereal crop growing along with it. Experiments were con ducted in different countries as to the best strength of spray to use, the best quantity, and the time to ap ply it. Practical advice is given to farmers in.Leaflet 63, issued by the Board of Agriculture, London. Good results will usually be got from 16 lbs., of copper sulphate, costing 4/6, 60 lbs. of iron sulphate, costing 2/6, may be used. The quantities indi...
LOSSES ON EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
*o LOSSES ON EGGS. It is officially stated tlh:tk'there - a loss of betwoeen fifty and sity thou. sand pounds annually between theo pIo. ducor and the customer, and. that the loss is duo partly to bad packing, but principally to faulty mtothlods inn collect ing and miarketing the eggs. MCr. J, S\V. G. Hanford, in Farm Poultry," says ."Tke bacteriologist tolls us that in an egg evaporation and the action of bacteria are evident by the third or fourth day, and there are some of us who believe that froml that time oi the egg is not perfectly fresh, nor 'new laid,' nor any other name that should mean the best. It is edible for some time after that if kpt properly, but it is not of iirst quality, and all tihe statements to-that effect canot make it so. If the farmer has to hiave a longer time thans three days to get his eggs to the consumer he should have to classify them other than the highl est, and hlie cannot expect to compete with the poultry-man who delivers his produce unrder 72 h...
ROMANCE OF A FAMOUS GOLD MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
ROMANCE OF A FAMOUS GOLD MINE. About. forty years ago a Scotsman, Donald Gordon by name, was endeavor ing to make a fortuno by cattlo graz ing on 640 acres in Queensland. The venture was net a success, and Gordon took little interost in the land, even when his brother Sandy got an idea that there was wealth in thb big me tallic looking boulders on the tract. But neither Sandy nor any of the pros pectors who visited' the district suspect ed gold in what they took to be a pure ironstone formation. Ultimately, however, two brothers named Morgazi, while on a prospecting tour in 1882. took specimens away, which panned ..ut so riholy that they at first doubted the evidence of their senses. Erventually the Morgan brothers formed a syndicate to mine the land, they themselves rotaining half the inter ests, other shares being sold to Mm . Thomas liall, then manager of t'c /Queensland National Bank, his' brot'i.vr Tlomas, and others. Donald G-i^l.,n was induced to sell the land at £1 an acre-o...
