A Gentleman. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 17 July 1914

A Gentleman. It is almost a definition of a gentleman to stiy he is one who never inflicts pain. This descrlp-. tion is both refined and, as far as it goes, accurate. Ho is' mainly oc cupied in merely removing tho ob-| stacles which hinder tho' free and unembarrassed action of those about him ; and ho concurs with their movements rather than takes the Ini tiative himself. His benefits may be considered as parallel to what are called comforts or convmiciiccs in arrangements of a personal na ture, like an easy chair or a good fire, which do their part in dis pelling cold and fatigue, though na ture provides both means . of rest anc* animal heat without them. The true gentleman in like manner carefully avoids whatever may cause thoso vill, whom ho is cast-all clashing of opinion, or collision of feeling,- aH restraint, or suspicion, or gloom, or resentment; his groat concern being to nmko evcryoue at their ease and at home. Ho has' eyes on all . his company ; ho is' tender towards the ...

Rats' Tails at Fourpence Each. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 17 July 1914

Rats' Tails at Fourpence ? ? Each. I Jt is calculated that there is one rat ,to every acre in England arid Wales, and each rodent docs dam age to the extent of 0110 farthing per day, which , represents a total loss of £15,000,000 to the country. The'annual bill for tho upkeep of a 'small army of cats and rat-cat chers at the London Docks amounts to hundreds of pounds per year, and though a thousand rats are killed there every week, the offi cials cannot exterminate the pests. The whole of tho civilised world is now engaged in a war of ex termination against the plague* carrying, unnecessary, and destruc tive rat. Australia has spent £60, 000 upon a single structure intend ed as a hairier, and DenmarU in troduced a successful Anti-Rat Bill. This Bill provided for the payment of a premium of not less than a half-penny and not more than a penny, according to the districts, for each rat captured, tho money being supplied by a State grunt. Rat* hunting became almost a national pustirae w...

The Methodist Chuveti. The quarterly meeting of the Lancefield Methodist Home Mis ?sion station was held in the home of the circuit steward (Mr C. Sum mers) on Wednesday, July 8th. Owing to bad weather the atten dance of officers was not so good as it might otherwise have been. The superintendent (Rev. R. Stone) reported that during the .quarter the work had been carried on with vigor; r.ot one scrvice Jjeing allowed to lapse. The at tendance at each service had been up to ihe average, and the attention with which each con gregation had listened to the pro clamation of the message had been very encouraging. The .station was somewhat handi capped by the absence of laymen to fill the pulpits on occasion; and thus they were not able to extend their work as they would like. The finances were well above the average. The quarter just past had always been considered the worst of the year, but after pay [ ing their way. and meeting evexy expense, they .still had a small sum .to crediL On th...

The latter should be yellow pine, for the dcfects of this stuff will not be noticeable in the position it oc cupies.

£40 for a Tattooed Head. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 17 July 1914

£40 .for a Tattooed Head.' " -f ::| At one time tattooed heads'fetch-' ed as muclv as,- C30 to .£'10 for gootj' specimens, said Dr. S. U. IJarri eoii, the curator of the Hornimanj Museum' at Korrest .Hill, in a lec ture on the paint, powder, and per sonal adornments of savages. He was describing the ancient Maori custom of tattooing the head, and said that they always cut' off the head of anyone slain in war, and it was looked upon afterwards as a sacred object. In process of time collectors began to purchase theso heads, and this led to many murders being committed in order | to secure the head and offer it for sule. It then became a practice to j tattoo the heads of slaves, so thatj they might eventually be killed, and-: their heads sold; but this had long since been stopped. | The wearing of necklaces and ear-1 rings went back many hundreds of years amongst every class of savage and the present use of powder and paint by them was a continuation of the use of pipeclay and red.ochr...

THE DAIRY. THE MECHANICAL MILKER. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 17 July 1914

THE DAIRY. THE! MECHANICAL MILKER. InTonUra have beon working on the mechnhic&l miLker for years. Like every other invention of Importance there were necessarily many failures before success crowned the efforts of the man who was able to picture in bis mind a machine that would re lieve the dairy farmer of much of the so-called drudgery of his work. To-day tbo milking machine is a success. There are unquestionably many, who will tell you otherwise, but tbc truth of the situation is demonstrated by the machines that arc in practical successful operation overy day in the year. The mere fact that the use of the milking machino has been discontin ued on some farms may be mislead ing. ; An illustration will make this clear. A dairy farmer who milks about 100 cows producing a very high class product which tops the market in a western city installed a machine a fow years ago. The expense in this ;case was an item of considerable im portance. After using the milking j machine for a ...

A BONUS EARNED. People at sea bet on all sorts of* i contingencies. An emigrant ship from 'England was recently approaching the Australian coast, and an inter ' esting event was expected at any I moment in the married people's | quarters. Considerable speculation and excitement was developed over the question whether the happy event would take place within or without the three-mile limit. A great cheer went up when it was announced that the littlo stranger was legally an Australian, and had earned the ..£5 baby bonus of the Commonwealth. A minute or two earlier tho child. would have been a native of Stepney, London, to which parish childron bom at sea belong. "Daily Chronicle."
