STRANGE COINCIDENCES Scientific and Literary Parallels. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
STRANGE .COINCIDENCES Scientific and Literary Parallels. In the lives of most of us coinncl dence has played a part. Probably, nine out of every ten people can re call events and dates which, co-incid ing with one another, are a source ol" wonderment. There are some coinci dences, however, which are of such a character as to call for more than, casual comment. In the November issue of the "Strand Magazine," for instance, there is a photograph illustrating- a phen omenon only visible in the tropics— that of sunshine at noon when no sha dow is thrown by objects exposed to the sun's rays, the explanation being, that the ship upon which the photo graph was taken was at the moment in the exact nadir of the sun's zenith. The penonienon was observed and re corded by Mr. W. B. Gibbs in latitude 15 deg. South, in February of last year, and it is a singular* coincidence that> precisely the same phenomenon was witnessed in 1881 or 1882 by Cap tain W. IvI. Gibbs, of Cardiff, at about the sam...

GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. No branch of dairy farming is more ] important than the feeding and treat ment of cows; yet none is more gen erally neglected. The direct influence of what the cow eats and driuks upon the milk she produces cannot be too strongly impressed upon the attention of the farmer.. Of equal importance are the conditions under which food and drink are taken. If cows are I chased by dogs or over-driven, or wor ried by boys on their way to pasture, their milk will surely show the effects in a deterioration of quality. If their shelter in winter or shade in summer is insufficient, or the food is not suf ficiently nutritive, the penalty will in variably be paid in a smaller milk yield. These restrictions are inevi table. One of the greatest mistakes far mers make is in supposing that they may with impunity keep their cows on "short commons" during the win ter and that they will fatten-up in the spring, and milk as well as ever. A cow reduced to meagreness by semi starva...

WARTS ON TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
WARTS ON TEATS. Many people fail to get rid of warts because they think it can only be done with great difficulty, or by tearing the wart bodily away, but this is not the case. When cows are milked twice a day it does not seem to afford much opportunity to get rid of warts. To use any substance of a poisonous nature for the wart is dangerous in many ways. When the teats are chapped only, some kind of soothing ointment should be applied, and for this pur pose carbolised vaseline, and other preparations may be procured from the chemist. This will heal the teat up in a short time, and allow the milk ing to be carried on without any dis comfiture to the cow. \ In the case of warts, when small they can generally be got rid of by touching them with caustic soda. An other simple remedy, and one which in many cases has been found to be successful; rub the wart with vinegar, then-while it is still wet dust it with dry carbonate of soda. If this is done after each milking, the warts will grad...

WORKING THE FALLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
WORKING THE FALLOW. Do you consider one harrowing and two cultivations with the spring tooth cultivator a sufficient number ot times to work a fallow? This question was asked the Inspector of Agriculture at a New South Wales bureau meeting, and the reply is quite worth quoting. No rule can be laid down for the number of times a fal low should be cultivated. It will de pend upon the weather. One season two or three cultivations may suffico, while another season half-a-dozen cultivation would not bo enough. It is not the number of times that should be considered, but the right time to cultivate. Cultivation is necessary after every heayy rain which com pacts the surface soil, for compacted surfaces denote that the soil has " sprung a leak," and in order to pre vent loss of moisture, the soil mulch must be renewed. Can harm be done by cultivating a fallow at any time at all ? was another question asked at the same meeting. There is no thing to be gained by cultivating a fallow, ran the...

A GOOD VICLIN STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
I A GOOD ViCLIN STORY. I A young man, poorly clothed, pre sented himself before a dealer in curiosities near the Palais Royal. "Sir," said lie, showing a violin thai he carried, "I am a musical artist; this is the season of balls and parties, 1 have just had a long illness which lias? exhausted my purse, my only blacit coat is in pawn; I shall be much oblig ed if you will "lend me ten francs to redeem it. I will leave as security one of the violins you see, for I have two; it is an excellent instrument. 1 shall return for it as soon as, thanks to my coat, I shall have earned enough money for the purpose." The young man had such an honest bearing that the dealer lent him ten francs, and kept the violin, which he hung.up in the shop. The next day ' a gentleman, well dressed, wearing at his button hole the riband of the Legion of Honor, was choosing from the dealer's stock of goods some shell work. Seeing the violin, he took it up, examining it nar rowly. "What is the price of that ins...
ONLY JOKING. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
ONLY JOKING, The following incident occurred re cently on the down mail train between Lahore and Aniballa. There were five European passengers in a fii-st-class reserved carriage. The guard of the train-was an Eurasian of pronouncedly dark complexion, but a smart and in telligent man at his work for all that. Oni of the first class passengers, who was a bounder, thought he would take a rise out of the guard, so, calling liim to the carriage, said: "I say, guard, I've got a hat here, a real silk bow ler, complete in case which I recently,, purchased from an outfitter's of Bom bay. It cost me 30 rupees, and the only fault about it is that it is a trifle too small for me. Judging by the size of your head, it will probably fit you. Would you mind accepting it":" The guard, gratified at the prospect of such a present, readily expressed acceptance. The passenger, holding the hat over the panel of the carriage, said, "Here you are, guard; here's the hat, case and all, but just as the guard...
