The Bishop's Retort. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
The Bishop's Retort. A certain worthy bishop was fond of a quiet smoke, and he did not think that the habit was out of keep ing with his high oflicS. The arch deacon of the diocese, however, thought differently, and did not hesi tate to proclaim his opinion. On one occasion the archdeacon was the guest of the bishop, and preached at the cathedral evening service. Hav ing returned to the episcopal palace, he was gazing from ^the library win dow, when ho detected the bishop walking in the garden below, and smoking a cigar, as he thought, in safe privacy. "Ah, Bisliop," said the archdeacon, as he opened the window, "so I have caught you burning incense to the devil." "Perhaps you have," retorted the bishop; "but I didn't know he was so near." The man who is in love with him self is in danger of making a mesal liance.

Dlsnlct iietiis. uniKiiii> Local crops have taken a new lease of life, and look marvellously fit and well. Taking the adverse weather conditions into considera tion they form a fine advertisement for the wheat-growing propensities of the plains. A new rain gauge has been pre sented to the local school by Mr George Perry. Mr Perry hopes that it will receive at least an inch of cristening from above in the near future. The local people are at present actively engaged in working up a. variety concert. A. working com mittee has been formed, with Mr K. Young as chairman and Mr Perry as secretary. The ladies are taking a very lively interest in the move ment. Money raised will be heldL for patriotic purposes. (Other items from our correspon dent will appear next week.)
CHAPTER XXIV. Volunteer or Pressed Man? [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
CHAPTER XXIV. Volunteer or Pressed Man? I A stream or men and twomen in evening dress -was pouring into the great pink and gold dining-room. It was "the" place to dine at in London ' just then, the last word in luxury— until some new capitalist should come along with something still more sin ■ fully extravagant. j Ilerepatil's lips curled scornfully as | lie saw the flashing jewels, the expen I give dresses, and the fleet of gleaming j cars that came purring gently up to ! the pavement. What these people wasted in a year would keep a hun dred families in comfort and happi ness. There was not one of them who would have lent him a sovereign to protect him from starvation, and yet he had something hidden in the back of his mind that would have meant a fortune to half of them. Yet perhaps the show of gaiety was not all as easy and devoid of care as it appeared. For instance, he did not look like poverty himself with his Bond-street cut dress clothes, his im maculate linen and polished s...

Silence Reigned Supreme. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
Silence Reigned Supreme. It was at the theatre, and the young man had seen the play before. He let everybody for Ave seats around know that. He had a pretty girl with hiiu, and he was trying to amuse her. At length he said: "Did you ever try listening to a play with your eyes shut? You've no idea how funny it seems!" A middle-aged man with a red face sat just in front. He twisted himself about in his seat and glared at the young man. "Young man," said he, "did you ever try listening to a play with your mouth shut?" Money by another name would ba as hard to get. Clever people think that money is everything; people who are cleverer still know th-t it is not Many a damsel who is a kitten with men is a cat with women. If we grew bald in proportion as we grow wise some of us would still be upholstered a foot thick on top. .

Waiting for the Message. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
Waiting for the Message. A schoolmaster was giving a lesson on physiology, antl he told his pupils that whenever they moved an arm or a leg, it was in response to a message from the brain. "The brain always sends a mes sage down your arm or leg whenever you wish to move it," he said. Later in the lesson a pupil misbe haved himself, and was told to come to the front of the class. "Hold out your hand," ordered the teacher. The boy did not move. "Did you not hear me tell you to hold out your hand?" asked the schoolmaster, with asperity. " Yr;s, sir," replied the youth, "but I'm •' •uting for the message from my brain."
EARTHWORMS AND THEIR WORK Good Friends to the Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
EARTHWORMS AND THEIR WORK I 1 Good Friends to the Farmer. Most persons have noticed the tracks'of earthworms on damp paths, after a night's rain, and the little heaps of earth cast up among the grass; but few, probably have thought of the great number of earthworms in the ground, and of the immense amount of work they do, and of the benefit they confer on land, plants and animals. A visit at night, with a lantern, to a grassy spot would > show many worms, some crawling about, others with tails in their bur rows, feeling around for food, etc. Darwin, the famous naturalist, who observed them for nearly forty years, gives their number as about 53,000 to the acre for garden land; while, for field land, there would probably be about half that number. Poor land in a dry district has few worms, while rich land in a well-watered country lias very many, a New Zealand record giving 800,000 to the acre. The Making of the Burrow. Worms are very timid, and seldom come out in the daylight. The...
GIPPSLAND AND ITS PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
! GIPPSLAND AND ITS ! PROSPECTS. It would be idle to assert that at the moment o£ writing the prospects' of tnis favored province of Victoria are particularly bright; indeed, that could be scarcely said of any portion oL' Victoria. Oil the other hand, there | is not the slightest cause Tor assum ing that there is about to ensue a sea son of stress, for the resources of the district are undeniably great, and matters, even taking recent events which may affect the markets into consideration, are very much better than they were during tile first few months of the year. The copious rains of July have had a most beneficial ef fect upon both agricultural and pas toral matters, the crops arfi.-frirv.'tjjrr; . and supply oC'gfSss for our own re quirements is assured. One of the most pleasing signs of , prosperity is to be found in noting the vast increase in the sheep-growing in dustry. Time- was when sheep were almost anathema throughout the length and breadth of Gippsland; but now the she...
THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT, Published by arrangement with Ward Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb CHAPTER XXIII. A Glimpse of the Gems. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. i By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. CHAPTER XXIII. A Glimpse of the Gems. The thing was done, the boats were burnt, the Rubicon .was crossed. There had been a conspiracy to deprive Herepath o£ the fruits o£ his toil, and if he were to get nothing he would see to it that the plotters were in no better case. He no longer doubted the existence of the conspiracy. It had been amply proved when lie found Daniel Harley in his workshop. In bitterness of, spirit and the heat , of the moment ho had defied the father of the girl whom he had hoped to make his wife. Evidently tlie man was a criminal; indeed his mysterious life in the strange riverside hfiuso pointed to that. Some day the police -would lay bauds on him and a great scandal would result. What was to become o£ Euid then? llerepath groaned as he thought of it. In or dinary circumstances it would not have much mattered. Ilis love for Enid was a pu...
EARNING CAPACITY OF DAIRY HERDS. Two Eloquent Examples. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
EARNING CAPACITY OF DAIRY HERDS. Two Eloquent Examples. To show how the earning capacity of different herds works out iu actual practice, without taking extreme fuses, au experienced dairy farmer refers to the records of two herds 01 ■10 cows. Tile lirst herd produced an average of 2071b. of butter-fat, and tin. lower herd gave only 1541b. of butter fat. The lirst herd returned a prolit of £5 17/- per cow, and the second herd showed a prolit of only 4/- per cow. The second herd would have to b milked for nearly 30 years to pro duce as much prolit as the better herd produced in one year; or 1200 cows of their capacity would produce only as much as the 40 good cows in one year. It may also be mentioned that 40 good cows cost £300 for feed and labor for one year. The other herd would require to have £9000 expend ed upon them to produce the same am ount of prolit. And yet there are some people who say there is nothing gained by testing their cows. Others make the excuse that they have n...
PRODUCTION OF COWS. The Most Important Question. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
PRODUCTION OF COWS. The Most Important Question. Every individual cow has a maxi mum point of production at which das can bo kept by proper feed and pro per conditions, and unless a cow is at, or nearly at, this point, she an-.i her owner are not working together for their mutual advantage as they should work together. If the cow's natural maximum o£ production is high, it is the owner's fault if she is not supplied with proper foods and conditions to keep her working in the immediate neighborhood of that high production of which she is capable; and if her maximum of production is low, then no feed and no conditions will make her a paying proposition, and the quicker the owner is rid of her the better. There are few farms 011 which there are not from 10 to 75 per cent, of cows that are absolutely making no profit whatever, and many that are a distinct loss to their own ers. The only prolitable course to take where the herd does not yield a fair prolit is to lind out whether the cows...
ANTIQUITY OF AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
I ANTIQUITY OF AGRICULTURE. When our ancestors were untutored' savages agriculture in China was at an advanced stage. The knowledge, of agriculture possessed by the ancient Chinese seems at this distance of time almost incredible. The popular bal lads of China, three thousand years old, selected from the writings of Con fucias, contain many stories and poems on the agriculture of that time. Some of these have been translated from Chinese into English by the Rev. W. Jennings, M.A. Here IB a Chinese song' of "harvest home" three thousand years old: Clear the witch-grass, clear the scrub; Ploughs the soddened soil shall grub; Thousand'couples weed the ground, Crossing swampy field and bound; There the master, there the son, Younger sons—aye, every one. Strong men here, assistants there,1 ' Hear them o'er their (midday) fare. Husbands eye their wives with pride, Wives cling to thair husbands' side. Now the sharpened shears are in— On south acres they begin. Sown is grain of every kind. ...
DEMONSTRATION AT ELLABAROOK. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
DEMONSTRATION AT ELLABAROOK. The lllabarook State School Commit ter at its last meeting decided to hold a patriotic demonstration on Sunday in support of the Patriotic Fund. Tlioro was a large gathering within the Me chanics' grounds enclosure, many of whom anticipated hearing addresses de livered by the Parliamentary representa tives of the district. The Herrings. Hoys' Brass Hand contributed several selections (■ending the arrival of the Ballarat visi tors, but none turned up, and the local committee decided to do the next best thing—to invite local residents to address the gatherings. This was carried ont most effectively by thoso taking part, tlio band at intervals rendering patriotic, ec lections under the baton of Mr Elatfield. Mr J. L.

CLIPPING UDDERS AN AID TO CLEANLINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
CLIPPING UDDERS AN AID TO CLEANLINESS. Advising that the udders of dairy cows should be clipped, Mr. H. E. Dvorachek, of the Colorado Agricul tural College, writes as follows:— "It is not uncommon among dairy cows to find the udder covered with a dense growth of long hairs, which, although they may be of some protec tion to the udder, nevertheless, from the standpoint of sanitation and com fort to the cow during milking are a detriment. Under ordinary farm con ditions they are generally covered with filth, and even iu the best-kept dairies, unless clipped, collect some dust and filth. Furthermore, because of their location, it is highly probable that some of them will find their way into the milk-pail during milking. In order that such conditions may not occur, these hairs should be clipped close once or twice each year, there ;'by preventing collection of filth and permitting greater ease in -washing the udder. "It has been my experience that j 'kickers' are also developed when bre...
The European War. SCARSDALE EFFORT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
Be European War. + SGARSDALE EFFORT. A meeting of the Scaradale Pa triotic Fund Committee was held at the Town HaJl on Saturday evening. In the absence of the mayor, who was unavoidably absent, Cr R. Lou den presided. He mated that the \meeting had been called to decide as to the disposal of the money in hand. The secretary stated the net result of the concert and ball was £10 7s 3d. All the lists had been returned, the total result of their efforts to date being £51 15s 3d. It was decided that the sum of £10 be donated to the Ballarat Fund for the supply of comforts for the troops. Mr Louden stated that 84 articles of underwear had been for warded, and 'that there was still some to be made up. It was re Bolved that the sum of £30 be do nated to the Ballarat Patriotic Fund, leaving the balance in hand to be dealt with as needs required. The best thanks of the meeting were tendered the ladies, who had work ed so assiduously in making com forte for th^ troops, also to the gen tlemen w...
CROSSING JERSEYS AND HOLSTEINS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
CROSSING JERSEYS AND HOLSTEINS. When a cross is made between two different breeds, there is the bring ing together of forces which in many cases are more or less antagonistic; that is, the animals have been bred in different ways although perform ing the same function. The Jersey is quite a different animal from the Hol stein. It is smaller in size, raised in a country entirely different, and has certain characteristics quite different from the Holstein. The Jersey pro duced milk that tests in the neigh borhood of 5 per cent., while the Hol stein produces milk testing about 3% per cent. The Jersey gives less milk than the Holstein, but it is richer in total solids. It has been a fanciful dream of some that the 'breeding of the Hol stein and Jersey together would pro duce an animal that would give a large flow of milk containing the high percentage of fat of the Jersey. In crossing these breeds this happy im agination has never materialised. Some good animals have been pro duced by c...
SUGAR OF MILK. A New Industry In New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
SUGAR OF MILK. I — I A New Industry in New Zealand. Many years ago the first cheese fac tory in New Zealand was opened at Edendale, and quite recently there has been erec^sd at Edendale another large factory, where at the opening of next season's dairying, the manufac ture of sugar of milk will be com menced. It is fitting that the new factory should be beside the juildiig where the first public cheese factory was established that demonstrated so handsomely that there was "sugar in milk," and there is every reason to thinlc that the promoters of the latest industry in connection with dallying will reap the same golden return. It is not quite a year since the idea of establishing the sugar of milk fuctory took definite shape, but when the pro ject was fully explained, those who understood a good proposition were not slow to recognise in the new ven ture an. industry that gave every in dication of success. It was mainly due to the efforts of two Dunedin gentlemen, Messrs. Neill and Fi...
