COLOR OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 July 1914
COLOR OF MILK. .The color of milk. will. vary with the breed. of cow' yielding; the milk, and ;th'e feeding the cow receives. Some foods have' the' effect of giving th milk a' good '.flavor, and other kinds of food just the reverse. - The natural color of :milk is due to the coloring. matter, "lactochrome," pre sent in -the 'butterfat. '.Milk is paler in color. during winter or when the animals are given:dry feed. Rich col oring milk yields ' butter of a deep yellow color a when it is well made.

THE STATE PARLIAMENT. A WORD OF WARNING. CONTRIBUTED. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 July 1914
THE STATE PARLIAMENT. -4--C--- - A- WORD POF WARNING. CONTRIBUED.. There is miore thaii possibility that the majority of the electors will ignore the doings :of the ,State :Parliament, wlich entered on its last session on Wednesday. For this there are several rea'ons. A Federal: fighti is comiiig, has actually begun,, and the. issues' about w'-ich it is to be waged are vital. More than that, in the Federal arena forces are equally ,matched, that victory will fivor whiclh :ever side displays the finer enthusiasm :nd the greater tactical skill :during. the next two months. The- State elections are more remote; the exact ground on which they are to be fought has not been defined, and. -is regards party, their result is a foregone conclusionat It is not very easy for Liberals to wax warm about' a struggle in which victory is assured.

DON'T WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 July 1914
DON'T WORRY. Live in the present, deal with the present, master the present, make the most and 'best of the passing hour, and don't waste it by distressful re grets about the past, or paralysing fears about the future. Grip the ever present now. By this thorough-going concentration on to-day you are most completely redeeming your yester days, and doing your best for your possible hut uncertain to-morrows. It is of no use crying over spilt milk; It is of no use to grieve concern ing what is absolutely inevitable or irretrievable, and because the events and relationships of your life will not run smoothly. If you have done your best, an angel could do no more. If you have an evil day approach ing, an unpleasant hour in front of you,'or any kind of disagreeable duty or engagement whatever, meet it without delay. It is better, as a rule, to voluntarily face it sooner, than be compelled to do so later. Be like the man in the moon-he sees a lot but never says a word.
WHY YOU SHOULD MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 July 1914
S,,WHYv YOU SHOULD, MARRY. Wee deplore the fact that, because of the fearful extravagances . of modern society,.many of our best people con. elude that they cannot possibly afford to get married. We are getting a fearful crop of old bachelors. They swarm around us: They go through life lop-sided. Half-dressed, they sit around sewing on buttons, and darning socks, and then go down to a long boarding house table which is bounded on the north and south and east and west by the Great Sahara Desert. We do not pity them at all. May all their buttons be off to-morrow evening! Why do they not set up a plain home of their own and come into the Ark two by two? The supporting of a wife is looked upon as a great horror. Why, dear friends, with right and healthy no tions of time and eternity, it is very easy to support a wife if she be of the kind wortb supporting. If she be educated into false notions of refine ment, and have "young ladies' Col lege" piled on her head till she be an imbecile, y...

.Gravel and Bladder Troubles. From Mr. J. Armstrong, grocer, Car rington-road, Coogee, Sydney, N.S.W. "'I had been suffering- from gravel, and after trying various remedies prescribed by the doctor and getting no relief, my sister induced me to try Warner's Safe Cure. Before I had finished the first bottleful I was greatly relieved, and by the time I had used up the second bottleful I was completely cured. I have told many of my friends of' the wonder ful benefit I have derived from tak ing Warner's Safe Cure, and feel confident that anyone suffering from the same complaint will derive great benefit from taking It as prescribed." From Mr George Rose, South Mor ang, Victoria. "I suffered from inflammation of the bladder, 'accompanied by pain ful urination, which made life very miserable for me.

A CHINESE WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 July 1914
A- CHINESE: WEDDING ; In China children-are betrothed by I their pardnts .at an early age. A child1 may be. betrothed as soon as it Is born,, but. the usual age js about ten or twelve. Several years, therefore, must -elapse, between the betrothal and the marriage. It sometimes hap pens.that a fourteen-year-old boy is married to a twelve-year-oldid girl, but this is not the rule.' The average age of Chinese brides is sixteen, and that of the grooms; seventeen years. When an engaged, couple becomes old enough ,to be married their par ents first decide: upon the month in which the marriage ceremony shall be held. This depends upon the caba listic animals which. governed the re spective.birthdays of bride and groom. If -the groom were born under the sign of the' rooster and the- bride un der that of ithe hare their marriage must take place in the seventh moon. If -the tiger.-and the ape, respectively, presided, at their births they must ibe married in the-second or eighth moon; Pople bo...

FOR THE FARMER. BETTER FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 July 1914
FOR THE FARMER. BETTER FARMING. More and more cayeful. systematic methods of farming are rapidly gain ing ground in this country., The in-. creased price of land makes such es sential to success, and no known sys tem will put farming on a better basis than following Nature's method of keeping up the fertility of the land, and in a great measure this is what green manuring is. Dame Nature had no plough to turn under the fall ing leaves of the bush hills,' but she -left time to do the work, and it is the accumilated humus so formed from .which our bush farmers are reaping their returns to-day. On much of our land fertilisers will be required to produce :a good crop for ploughing in,' for It is poor econ omy to blough in a .pbor one.. Money so spent will be. returned a hundred fold, and 'the permanent ,fertillty of the land built up. 'On heavy land the. ploughing in of suich: crops as peas, vetches, clover, etc.,. is particularly valuable, for. doing so 'often converts an unkindly diff...

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and' Co.,. London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XIX. Sheila might not have allowed Mrs. Murphy to leave her so quickly had she not observed Shamus coming to her. "Shamus," she exclaimed, "such a queer old woman has been here. I have just parted from her because she would not stay. She was dressed in the style of a hundred years ago, but I think she was really very nice, and she seemed deeply interested in me, Shamus. I found the poor thing with her eyes full of tears and her face scarlet as though she had been crying, and I am sure that O'Donnell was rude to her. Do you know, Sha mus, dear, that she mad such a very funny request? She begged and im plored of me not to go outside of the grounds unless I had someone with me. Of course, if you were at home I should be quite all right, but that darling The O'Doyle does not, care to walk much and madam...
IS CLIPPING SAFE? [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 July 1914
IS CLIPPING SAFE? 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 in 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 condtions may not oc cur, 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.

MANURING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 July 1914
MANURING. POTATOES._ Potatoes, like Sall other 'crops, 're quire a complete manure, viz., a ma nure': containing nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash, lime also if the soil Is deficient in this nedessary. consti tuent. Nitrogen, may be used in var ious ..forms blood and bone, sulphate of ammonia, or nitrate of soda. If the first is used, it is better to apply it at the. time of planting, as it is much slower in its action than either of the others; *the sulphate of am monia is sometimes applied, at plant ing time also, but it is better applied afterwards as a top dressing when. the plants are two or three -inches high. With regard to nitrate of soda, this is so extremely soluble that .it should only be applied when the crop is near ly ready for earthing up. Phosphates may be used in various forms, super, bonedust, or slag, according to the nature of the soil .or' the particular. fancy. of the user. ' In any case, a lib eral dressing is necessary.
