Chamber of Agriculture. RURAL DISTRICTS' INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
Chamber of Agriculture. RURAL- DISTRICTS' INTERESTS The- quarterly meeting of the Cham ber of Agriculture was held on Friday last, Mr Duncan M'Lennan presiding. The secretary reported that efforts had been made to arrange an inter-State conference on the bulk handling of wheat, but in the opinion of the othes States the time was not opportune. A committee was. considering the proposal on behalf of Victoa1a, and a report would be tfurnished shortly. A protest had 'been sent to the InterState Commission against a duty on superphosphates on the ground that it would raise the price and give a monopoly to local manufac tuners. Similar steps would be taken if it wei(e proposed to impose an ex port duty on sheepskins. The result of a conference between the chamber and the Co-operative Butter and Cheese Factories, Association was the affirma tion of the principle of effective dairy supervision either by the Government or the 'municipality, and the extension of the Milk and Dairy.

CORRESPONDENCE. LIBERAL SENATE CANDIDATES. (To the Editor "Kerang New Times.") [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. LIBERAL. SENATE CANDIDATES, (To the Editor "Kerang New Times,") Sir,-There is a consensus of opinion in the metropolis that the executive of the Liberal Leagues made a serious: mistake in the proposals submitted for selecting candidates for nomination at the next elections for Senate represen, tatives. "As one largely interested for the best welfare of the Liberal cause in the Gunbower and Wimmera dis tricts, I beg a, small space in your columns to set forth my viewsand gleanings relative to the important-ques Lion now agitating the minds of the great body of electors in the State. Surely a more reliable and satisfactory mode of procedure should have been adopted than sending out ballot papers broadcast to supposed members of leagues, when it is well known that a large majority of them have little or no knowledge of. those offering them. selves for selection, whilg it is embar. rassing to Liberal voters in general. Then, again, it is acknowledged on all sides that th...

ABOUT MOULTING. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
ABOUT MOULTING. Those who witness the moulting of the hens do not, perhaps, consider how important the operation is to the feathered tribe in general. It is the casting away of the old covering, the putting on of new clothes, so to s.peak; but the process is a gradual one, requiring three months for its cotnpletlon. The majority of persons have no patience with a moulting hen. They think she ought to lay when she is moulting; but, if they will reflect a little, they will conclude that nature is economical in her workings, and does not devolve upon her creatures the fulfilment of more than one task at a time. It is as much as she can do to pass through the period of moulting safely; for, should she batch cold or become sick from any cause, her system will be too much out of order to arrive at good health again Although the hen occasionally be. comes fat while moulting, this is due to the fact that, when her food is as similated. the. feathers require for manufacture nearly all of the...
DOLLY MADISON'S TALKS The Girl With One Idea. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
DOLLY MADISON'S TAALKS The Girl With One Idea. Last summer Marcia went to Eut. ope. Since then she has bored her friends'to extinction. She Walks of only one thing. No matter what sub ject is brought up, she leads the con versation back to her trip abroad. One of ier girl friends expresses the situation frankly. 'Marcia was a nice little thing," she said, "re. sponsive and interesting, until she travelled, but now she forces upon us her half-baked opinions and experl. ences and we want to fly from her." It is always a bad thing to be a girl with one idea; to over-estimate the vjtlue of your day's work, your popularity, your political influence, your religious convictions, your so cial experiences, your studies, your accomplishments, It is not wise to dwell too much upon them. People tire easily of egotistical talk. Marcia does not seem to realise that others have travelled, that in most instances they have seen more than her few months' holiday allow ed her. In the eyes of these sea...

FEMININE TRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
FEMININE TRAITS. A woman walking on a city foot way will generally choose the inside. She does so partly in order to look at the shop windows, but chiefly-on ac count of the slope of the pavement, which is less on the inside. In trams and omnibuses women mostly sit neai- the door. At the far end you will, as a rule, see a majority of men. When men read while travelling they nearly always read newspapers, but in the hands of the reading girl, you will, with rare exceptions, see a book. When-a woman is crossing a street with much traffic, she runs, in nine .cases out of ten, and the older she is, the more inclined she is to run. But the, man walks very deliberately. A woman holds a closed umbrella by the middle, .and usually clasps it to her body. No one ever saw a man carry it in this way. . A woman usually raises a. cup or a glass or a fork to her lips .correctly-that is with her. el bowvs close to her body. Most men stick their elbows out, against all rules of- etiquette.. In light...
THE HONORED GUEST [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
THE HONORED GUEST By: Derwent Miall. - I. The room was- in darkness, and the d mood of the occupant- was black. He lolled back in a well-stuffed armchair, his eyes fixed abstractedly upon a dis tant constellation that showed through a the' open window, his inward vision entirely occupied in imaginary con templation of an archly provocative feminine .face. - Jock Ballina was esteemed ,by his intimates for a young man of rer source-an adroit and amiably, wilful person.. But for the moment he saw no arts by which ,he might counter the weighty opposition of Joshua Mul grave, M.P., to his marriage with Syl via, sole daughter and only hope of his mushroom house of Mulgrave. The room in which he sat was the dressing-room apportioned to his use during his btay at Hawes Park, the Mulgraves' magnificent, restored, re habilitated, re-decorated country house. Mr. Mulgrave had been a coun try: neighbor of Jock's father for twen ty years, prospering progressively all the: while, whereas the Balli...
Wasted Energy. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
Wasted Energy. The excited individual entered the crowded room whilst the meeting was In progress, and, having cldared his throat, he took out a bundle of notes, and commenced to address the meet ing. The. chairman made repeated.' ef fort$ to interrupt the speaker; .but he refused to -be called to order. The oration lasted close upon an hour, and when he had resumed his seat the chairman . managed to :.gain a hearing. . "Have you quite done, sir?" he asked. "Yes-quite; but I.defy you to den,' the truth of my statements,"' he re torted. "I have no wish to, sir," said the chairman. "The gas. company, the management of which you complain, is holding its annual. meeting in the next room. This .is the Vegetarian Society!"
Head of the House. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
Head of the House. A man, accompanied by his wife, visited a tailor's to order a suit of clothes. .The couple differed as to the choice of material, and the man ner of making until the wife lost her temper. "Oh! well, please yourself," she said, turning away, "I suppose you are the one who will wear the clothes." "Well," observed the husband meek ly, "'I didn't suppose you'd want to wear the coat and waistcoat." The New Woman's. Quandary. "Yes," the new woman remarked, "I am greatly:troubled." "By what?" "Well, I want to get married just to prove that I can, and I don't want to get married just to prove that I don't need to. If I don't, they'll say. I can't; if I do, they'll say I have no more independence than any other woman." "Nothing but dynamite will remove me from my benefice," says an aged rector. We hope his bishop won't "blow him up."
The Same Line. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
The Same Line. Several "commercials" were seated in a railway carriage, when the door opened and an elderly" woman enter ed, whose appearance denoted that she was a native of the Emerald Isle. One of the party, who posed as a wag, at once began to extract amuse ment from her by asking a number of ridiculous questions, to which she replied good humoredly, and at last exclaimed: "Now, sorr, I've given you a good dale ov me history, may I take the liberty av axin what ye are yersilf? What ye do for a livin' loike?" "Certainly, ma'am, certainly," was the ready reply, "I'm a traveller in the hard and soft goods line." "Indade, now," said Biddy, "that's quare, my ould man's a traveller, too." "Indeed, ma'am," was the surprised rejoinder. "What line is he in, pray?" "Just the.same as yersilf, sorr, the hard and soft goods loine-he thravels up a ladder wid bricks an' mortar." The inquisitive bagman did not press for further information.
The Limit. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
The. Limit. Mary Jane's master is a slightly ec centric bachelor. He has one most irritating habit. Instead of telling her what. he wants done by. word of mouth he leaves on his desk, or on the kitchen table, or anywhere else where she is likely to see it, a note curtly directing her to "Dust the din ing-room," or "Turn out . my cup board," and so on. The other day he bought some note paper, with the usual die-sunk ad dress imprinted upon it, from the sta tioner, and ordered .it to be sent home. Mary Jane took it in, and the first thing that.caught her eye was a note attached to the package. She read 'it open-eyed. "Well," she said, "he's asked me to do a few things in his blessed notes, but this is the limit. -I won't stand it no longer!" For the note read: "Die Inside This Package."
Already Equipped. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
Already Equipped. "Don't know whether it's new or not. .I hedard: it at G--," said the man wrio. had: recently returned from that town. "There's a rich widow living just outside the place," he continued, "and after several elderly gentlemen had vainly endeavored to lure her into matrimony, a report gained circula tion that she was a regular man-hater. Finally a wealthy widower, carrying with him the evidence of good living and the heartiness that seeks con genial companship, visited the town, anid wias soon', a caller upon the. in ,tractablc .widow. "After: he thought sufficient ad vancement .had been made to justify :a proposal he proceeded to feel his way.. "'Beautiful home you have here.' S"Yes, I enjoy it.' "'Fine outlook, fine trees, very fine all round. But there is one thing lacking.' "'Yes.' `"'It is an Adamless Eden, don't you know. You are so good ih everything 'else that I should think-you would be glad to share these blessings with a husband.' "'Are you proposing, sir?' ...
THE AERIAL GULF STREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
THE AERIAL' GULF STREAM. The Gulf Stream, when it leaves the, Gulf of Mexico, enters the Atlantic with a speed of 8 kiloinetres an' hour. It is 60 kilometres wide and 400 metres deep, and daily transports about 40 millions of milliards of ca lories. This enormous quantity of heat, of which it is almost impossible to obtain an exact idea, plays a funda mental role in the general climatology of the earth. Strangely enough, it is this stream of hot water, exercising its temperature action on--the coasts it waters, which is the direct cause of the existence of deserts. And this is how. Water is one of the bodies iin which, heat is the most easily pre served, and consequently the Gulf Stream, even in high latitudes, still keeps an enormous quantity of heat. The masses of 'air that rest on these hot waters are kept at a temperature higher than the surrounding tempera ture, and form a veritable, aerial gulf stream superposed over the marine current. But the aerial current is-not like the m...
HOOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914
HOOPS. With the arrival of the hoop season, Jessie Pope sends me the following: When you're walking good. as gold Down the new suburban street, Where the villas to be sold Are inordinately neat; When you're musing with.dpjection On the latest by-election, Or brooding over business' which is wearing rather -thin, If there comes a savage clanking And a swtit metallic spanking And a bounfing loop of iron barks a segment of your shin Pray accept the situation With submimisive resignation Hoops are in! When you're driving in your car With the luggage up behind, And a week-end free. and far In the fpr.efront of your mind If'a maiden small and sporting Sends, a -wooden sphere cavorting In the middle of the roadway with an oscillating spin, And all blue-eyed and seraphic Marks the panic of the traffic And the progress of her plaything with appreciative grin Prithee check your malediction: 'Tis a time-honored affliction: Hoopg are in!
