OLD ENOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914

OLD ENOUGH. "Fine old inn, sir," commented the host. "Everything in this house has its story." "I don't doubt," remarked the grumpy tourist. "And is there any legend connected with this old piece of cheose P" The doors of a certain new house had shrunk horribly, as is the way of the modern door made of unseasoned wood. The builder would not send the joiner to replace them, so the (l householde'r tried the ironical method d ia wrotei- "Dear Sir,--Tho mice can run under most of outr doors, but our cat cannot follow them. ( Will yon please solend a manl at once to nmako room under the doors for the eat, nd nmuch oblige?" Naxt day the ]oinors name.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE. ~ An interesting article in M'Clure's is one by Mr U. N. Williamson on "Sys:tems and System-Players at Mon to I(:trlo." Tu:is privileged resort has been de scribe(, as a Garden of Eden and lik eneid unto a Hell upon Earth. The spirit of evil may be the only nexus, but whether for pleasure or excitement, Monte Carlo continues to attract an amazing assortment of men and women from the four corners of the earth. The most notable, if not the most pic turesque, amongst these are undoubt edly the system-players. Mr Williamson gives us an odd glimpse of these hope ful ones: A little after nine o'clock in the morning a stranger would be surprised to see a crowd, composed mostly of men, solemnly assembled-on the pave ment across the road opposite the Ca sino. They look more like business men waiting for a suburban train to take them to the city than gay Rivi era idlers. Their faces are intent, though not -visibly anxious. They talk little to tlheir neighbours, and laugh...

HOLSTEINS AS BIG MILK PRODUCERS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914

HOLSTEINS AS BIG MILK PRODUCERS. Th' Holstein-Friesian cows continue to pile up great records in the way of milk and butter fat production, says the 'Now York Farmer," of 9th May. Col dntha 4th's Johauna not long ago won the world's crows, by her yield of 27,423.5lbs. of milk and 998.261bs. of butter fat in a year. Her yield of milk has not yet been surpassed, but bher re lative, Pontiac Clothilde DeKol 2nd, won' the crown with 25,3181bs. of milk that yielded 1,017.281bs. of butter fat. Now another relative, Banostine Belle DeKolI takes the crown with her yield of 27,404.4 lbs. of milk which produced 1,058.341bs. of butter fat. These are records that will be surpassed, probably, in the future, but only Holsten-Friesian cows can sur pass them. Those breeders, both inside and outside of Holstein-Freisian circles, who decry the ."short tests," should be content to know that regular yearly tests are now numerous. Those outside of the Holstein-Friesian field may well be par doned if they...

KINGS WHO LIVE ON PENSIONS. In subjuga?ting the savage tribes in their African and Asiatic p.ysessions, a task which has kept theo French people busy for nmanny years, they have been not a little embarrassed at times by finding themselves burdened with a foew deposed monarchs whom it was found necessary to pension off in order to keep them out of further mischief. One of the lirst of these deposed kings was Belianzin, King of Dahomey, who wa.% deprived of his throne some twenty years ago, and' whose son is now living in Paris on a small pension. Mention might also be made of the lcephlew aind successor of Benhanzin, Prince King of Dahomey, who was dis possessed in 1900. What caused the most chagrin to this black king was not so much the loss of his realm, but that of a large diamond ring, the gift of the Government which confiscated it. Eighly thousand francs is the pen sion which is paid to the.former King of Annium, the Prince Ham Nglhi, mon arch of the territory along the east co...

The overture-was play ed by Miss King. and was well re cei'ed. The song, "My Ain Folk," was nicely...

HORSE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914

HORSE TALK. The shoeing of the farm horses should receive the same attention .that is given the road horse or the trotter. Under no conditions allow the sole to be pared or thinned. The horn on the solo proevnts in jury to the semsitive parts under. -seath. The feet should be perfectly level. led with a rasp, to an angle of 45 tleg. in front and about 50 deg. in the back.. Nevs, allow a shoe to he fitted hot. Use the smallest nails possible. The calks should be as short at possible and perfectly' evenl. Shoes should be reset every foul or six weeks, according to the ecr lition of the feet. Every' farm home ought to have at least one horse that is safe for the women folks to drive. It is only fair that they should not be obliged to wait till some of the men nan take them to town. A good safe driving horse helps to make farm life really desirable. When a horse is uneasy or acts un anturally,- do not forget that he may gave a sore under the harness, or rome other trouble of whioh he ca...

HOMELY SENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914

HOMELY SENSE. Better have one good cow than twc scrubs. Why not try to raise the best boy and girl farmers in the mnghbor hood, instead- of the most useless ones. It is better to be poor and well, than rich and ill. Yestorday is hopeless; to-day is better than to-morrow. SA. wise man never boasts of his wisdom. He wouldn't be wise if he did. Never sell an animal that loves you or the family, hbe it horse, colt or eow. Better give the money to the man and feed dealer than to the' cattle doctor. Teach the boys and girls to read aloud, and let them read something interesting aloud every night. To some men time and a sixpenny buckle or latch are of small value until after the catistrophel When you go away for.a day don't leave the hired men so many jobs to do that he will forget half.of them. It isn't what you haul to market that makes old age easy; it is the amount of pennies you carry to the bank.

THE WORLD'S BEEF. DEMAND OVERLAPPING SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914

THE WORLD'S BEEF. DEMAND OVERLAPPING SUPPLY Statistios regarding the world's beel supply show that, as is the case wiLi some other primary products, the pro duction is not keeping pace with the increaso of population, or with the in creasing purchasing power of the peo: ple. It must be borne in mind that working people are now receiving bet ter wages in many countries, and that the world's trade was never so prosper ous as at the present time, all of wisnch points to the ability of the people to purchase good, wholesome meat. An ollicial summlary of the position fur nishes some significant figures, which have a very direct interest to Aus tralia and New Zealand. A study of the available figures will prove two points, namely: (1) the cattle of the world are not increasing at the same rate as are the respective populations, and (2) that in several of the more im portant countries the dairy cattle re present greater percentages of the total herds. In the following countries the numbers...

MacDougail and his wife to Seymour. The function was arranged ostensibely by his own church people, but a hearty invitation was extended to everybody who desired to be pre sent, and as a consequence the at tendance was large and representa tive of all denominations The Rev.

In an address at Avenel re cently Mr MacDougall said they had lierally to dig him out of Wahgun yah, and as a member of the Pres bytery he (the speaker) could fully verify that statement, as they had difficulty in persuading Mr Mac Dougall to preach at Seymour. At that time he could not understand the reason of his reluctance to leave Wahgunyah, b...

CULTIVATION OF CARBROTS. It is often said- that this prolific and useful crop is not grown so extensively as might be with advantage. It re sembles in composition, the turnip and mangold, but is much more concentra ted than the former, as it contain from 14 to 20 per cent of try nutri tivo matter, against about. 9 in the turnip. It flourishes best in deep noamy soils lnot too wet, or the carrots are liabi to rot, and not very dry, or the growt of the root is oramped.

The anxious mother said; And with her large, soapsuddy hand She stroked his flaxen head.

LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

LUCERNE. (From the Journal of the Agricultural Department. Tasmania). The reason why this useful and no tritious fodder is not more generally grown hero is difficult to understand. Almost every work on fodder crops places lucerne at the head of -the list, and its area in various parts, of the Northern Hemisphore: as well as the Argentine and the mainland of Austra lia, would seem to indicate that some special reason was underlying the lack of attention which the Tasmanian farm r gives to a valuable fodder and a drought-resisting plant. Lucerne, or alfalfa, lhas been known and appre anted for centuries. ITo his "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire," Gib bonul writes,"The use of artifieial grasses became familiar to the farmers, both of Italy and the provinces, particularly the lucerne, which derived its name and origin from Mesa." [tle r anal instructions are that the soil cl. .cn for growing this fodder, and the variety selected, will be the dleciding factor whether success or fail...
