THE OVAL MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 March 1914
THE OVAL MATCH. Winning the toss from E. S. Herring, the Havelock skipper (H. Morgan) decided to take first use of a wicket that was good though a trifle soft. The visitors made a poor start against the bowling of Haberle and Stevens, A. C. Chivers and T. Batty both being bowled with only two up; Morgan fell a victim to a smart bit of stumping by Youlden, but the veteran, W. Hawke, took a lot of shifting. He must have stayed half an hour without scoring before Stevens, clipped his bails off. In contrast Shebler hit hard, and soon knocked up 17. He went out through trying to "cart" Stevens and skying the ball above the wicket. The others went cheaply, F. Batty carrying his bat for 8 (including a four that went within inches of being a sixer), and the total was 46. M'Allister, who re- lieved Haberle, led the bowling with three wickets for 2 runs, and Stevens took five for 29. Haberle had chances missed off him. Youlden kept wickets well, his stumping of Morgan being really brilliant. ...
REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. At the basis of all genuine rotations lies the fact that plants differ from one another in their demands upon the soil, both chemioal and physical; they differ with regard to their root systems, depth of feeding, their moisture requirements, their time of feeding, their dates in reaching maturity, etc. Many plants impoverish the soil; a few enrich it; some spoil its physical condition, while others improve it in that regard. Many crops favor the growth of weeds, while others either are able to hold the weeds in oheok, or re quire such cultiration and treatment as will prevent their growth. All these differences fit plants for different places in rotation, and a well arranged rotation is one in which the strong points of one crop follow so as to fit into the weak points of another, or vice versa, and in this way reduce deficiencies to a minimum. A crop that requires a large amount of one ele ment should be followed by one that requires less of that element and ...

ST. PATRICK'S DAY. LOCAL OBSERVANCE. AN ENJOYABLE ENTERTAINMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
ST. PATRI? KS` DAY. LOCAL OBSERVANCE. UN ENJOYABLE ENTERTAINMENT.: As has been remarked in these columns on sundry occasions in the past, there seems no good reason why the Irish: of the district -Irish by birth, descent, or :sentimient should not efittingly. celebrate St. Patrick's Day.-': The 17th" has so. long been associlated with Ireland and things. Irish-just as .New Year's Day (more so than St. Andrew's Day),: is associated with the Scotcha-that there are few dis tricts in Austraita thiat do not make some observance thereof. And such does not- make :anyone a whit the less good Australian:; rather the ex pression of pride of :descant tends to at better 'appreciation. of this fair land-the "last seai-thing dredged by sailor Time from space." . It.: seemse now to: be generally agreed thit Marylorough shall have on each evening of Ireland's national dayi a national entertainment, and this will appeal to most as a wise re solve. It? would be little use hav ing,, as many. towns do,...
CIRCUMVENTING A FADDIST. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
CIRCUMVEN'TING A FADDIST. In "Fanoies, Fashions and Fads," Mr Ralph Nevill, son of the late Lady Doroth3 },evill, writes: - "This is the gold:.., is o of the fad. Never before in tn, word's ,iLtory na:, this particular form of egotism had suchb chances of flourishing." Ho tells an amusing story at the e':xPciI of the faddists. When at luncheon with a friend he observed '"that he touched no meat, but ate only strange vegetarian dishes, which had evidently been pre pared for his'special consumption. Later on I enquired of his wife if this new diet agreed with her husband." "It didn't at 'first,' she replied, 'but it does now.' " 'From his looks hlie certainly seems to thrive on it. He never looked more robust in his life.' " 'I take caro of that,' she went` on, 'though I hope he won't find it out. No man partakes of a more carnivorous diet than he. Everyone of those vege table courses you saw to-day was iull of the strongest meat-juice, which by my orders, is put into everything serv ...
GROWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
GROWLS. (BY "THE GRUMBLER.") Last week. I drew attention to some of the matters to be considered at the forthcoming conference of the Political Labor Council, and pro mised to advance good and suffi cient reasons why my services will not be at the disposal of the electors at the next election. Among the proposals to be submitted are to re strict those who will be eligible for public positions and for office in the central of the branches of the Political Labor: Council to wage earners. A " wageearner?' is de fined as a seller of labor ; one whose income is at least three-fourths de rived from manual or mental ser vice, or from self or co-operative em ployment; who has given no evi dence of intention to employ others, unless in harvesting or home help under uncertified (?) conditions, and is not disolassed by social circle, the central executive to be arbiter if called upon. If these conditions are given effect to, I know several Labor members who will become ineligible -they do not ...

NOTES ON NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
NOTES ON NATURE. The economic value of our native birds is seldom appreciated. We can generally wee any little weakness they possess in stealing a morsel of fruit, or a few grains of seed; but the good they do, and which they do not adver tise, is unconsidered. When we dis cover that few of our birds, compara tively, are seed-eaters, and the major ity are almost wholly insectivorous, their value may appear more promi nent. It is really only for a short time in the year that birds are at all troublesome in our orchards and even then, the good they do is in a greater proportion than the harm. This, of course, only applies to the native avi fauna, an4 the natural inference is that they are worthy of protection. Apart from their distinctive beauty. their gentle habits, and, in many cases, their delightful singing, the question of utility should appeal to even prac tical folk. To arm a boy or even a girl (as some of our farmers do) with a gun, in order to shoot birds, is.not only an unsa...
THE USE OF SPURS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
r-; THE USE OF SPURS. The efficiency of a rider may easily be determined by the manner and fre quency with which he uses his spurs. The."Live Stock Jouhnal" commenting on this foact, remarks:-At the begin. ning of the hunting season a contre cersy always arises as to the use ol spurs, especially in connection with shifty hunters that- are apt to refus* whoen they are. wanted to jump, thtu greatly annoying the rider; and, whiit not necessarily recognising the Contin ental oritics as profound judges of hunting, it is interesting to note what they have to say on this subject. The3 profess to dislike spurs as means oJ coercion or punishment-. In schoo riding they are used notably as a methoc of indication to supplement "hands." Sharp rowels are properly condemned and it is- pointed out that only skil ful horsemen should use spurs at all. The famouis steeplechase jockey, Ar thur Nightingall has won three grant Nationals, and his spurs were "dum mies," That example is assuredly tc be comm...
INCUBATORS IN EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
INCUBATORS IN EGYPT. The announcement is made by Mr. W I. Cadman that he has discovered how the ancient Egyptians incubated chick ens to the number of 120,000,000 a year. -Hie has found incubators which he states were used in Egypt 5,000 years ago. The secret has been well guard ed, but it is laid bare at last. They had no oil stoves or gas or electric heated incubators, but they had ovens which worked better even though they required more constant tending. Each oven was calculated -to. hold 7,000 eggs, and the fuel by which'",it was heated consisted of chopped straw and dung, but for the last ten days of the hatching the energy was supplied altogether by the chickens themselves. It isithe com monest error of those operating our modern incubators to use too much heat, especially towards the end of the periodc and now we may learn froum he old Egyptians how not to do things as well as how to do them. - The -use'of the straw and other light fuel sahcws that the -Egyptians were most -e...
MOTOR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 18 March 1914
MOTOR NOTES. (By Du:NLor.) This year's Grand Prix set down for running on July 4th promises to to be one of the most spectacular and most keenly-contested motor car road races yet held in the world. The splendid total of 39 entries has already been received, and there may yet be others at double fees. This year's race will be held on a 233 miles circuit near Lyons, France, which will be negotiated 20 times, making a total of about 470 miles. The contest will be a thoroughly international one, as the following countries will be represented i Fcrance with 12 cars, England with six, Germany with eight, Italy with nine, Belgium with two, and Switzer land with two. One of the most interesting features of the race will be the re-entry of the Mercedes car into the racing world, this being the first occasion upon which the great Canestaff firm have raced - a car since carrying off the Grand Prix in 1908. Some of the entries are decidedly interesting. The great rivals, the Peugeots, Delage, ...
