THE DAIRY. WEALTH IN A GOOD HERD. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

THE DAIRY. 1 WEALTH IN A GOOD HERD. In securing a dairy herd too few people realise how easy it is :to ac cumulate wealth by building up a herd that represents the highest pos sible quality in the cows. A dairy herd may become merely, the means of affording a living, if indeed, not a hard, drudging life, or it may' be a veritable savings bank, accumula ting compound interest. Only ten years ago the University of Missouri purchased four registered Holstein cows and a bull for £94. At the present time the descendants from this purchase number 35 head, some of which could not be purchas ed for £200 and the entire lot is valued at over £2,000. In addition to this increased value, bulls have been sold for breeding purposes . that leaves a substantial margin to the credit of the sales account after al lowing for the occasional purchase of a new bull for use in the herd. One thousand dollars a year is what this original investment of £94 returned on increasing value alone, to say nothing o...

THE FARM HANDLING SOIL FOR PRODUCTION. EXTENT OF PLANT-ROOT SYSTEMS AND THEIR GROWTH. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

THE F A RJ HANDLING SOIL FOR PROBUC- ' TION. EXTENT OP PLANT-BOOT SYS TEMS AND THEIR GROWTH. If one pulls up a wheat plant as it is approaching maturity he finds at tached to the crown of the plant a number of roots of various sizes only a few inches in length. Unless he is a skilled botanist, he concludes that these are all the roots the plant has, and that through these the plant derives its soil nourishment. Accord ingly he comes to the conclusion that wheat' is a shallow-rooted plant. TRUNK LINES, NOT FEEDING ROOTLETS. These roots, however, furnish the plant no part of its nourishment ; they are merely the trunk lines which receive the plant nourishment from the feeding rootlets and take it to the growing tissues of the plants ; they are merely carriers, not grather ora. plant food. .'the reeding root lets, by means of which the plant gathers its soil nourishment, were broken off and left in the soil when the plant was lifted. Since the plant derives its nourishment from the soi...

IN THE FACE OF MISFORTUNE. TROUBLES ONLY MAKE SOME PEOPLE LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

Iff THE FACE OF MISFORTUNE. 1 TROUBLES ONLY MAKE SOME PEOPLE LAUGH. While some people are depressed by the smallest troubles, and almost hopelessly crushed by great ones, others see only the brightest side of everything:, are ready to believe un der the severest misfortune that, af ter nil, an even greater calamity might have happened to them, and are able to get actual enjoyment out of the contemplation of the little I troubles and catastrophes of daily life. It is all a matter of disposi tion. A costermonger was pushing his barrow of fruit along Cheapside when a motor-'bus caught the barrow and upset the whole of the fruit into the roadway. The coster took off his cap scratched his head, and, as he saw his property rolling in all directions beneath the wheels of the crowded vehicles, simply remarked, with a grin : "Well, there ain't no blessed word for it !" A man who was walking along the bank of a canal accidently stumbled and fell in. Some persons who saw the affair from a litt...

PATTER ARTISTS STILL AT CROSS PURPOSES. -♦ Where are you going to spend your holiday this summer ? No holiday for me. I'm saving all my money for a machine. Sewing or killing ? Neither. I'm going to buy a dicta graph. What is a dictagraph ? A dictagraph is a wonderful instru ment. With such an instrument, no matter where you are, you can hear what your wife says about you be hind your back. Oh, it's an instrument of torture ? It's a great invention. With a dic tagraph you can find out' just who your friends are. All you have to do is to go and visit the people you know,stick it under the carpet or be hind the piano, and when you go home you can sit in your parlour, and hear everything they say about you. But if YOU did that pretty soon you wouMn't have any friends. Not at.all. You don't need to let them know that you know what they think- of you. But what pleasure is there in be ing a dictagrapher ? I don't see any fun in going to a party and then coming home and listening to your s...

THE DINER'S RUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

THE DINER'S RUSE. The members of the club were tell ing yarns, when the quiet man in the corner was asked to contribute. "Well, said he, "I once entered a restaurant where they, weigh you be fore eating, and then after eating,, and then charge you by weight. I had a good feed, and was charged ten shillings. The next time I went I took in my pockets bricks, weights and such-like. I was weighed., and then went upstairs and had a ban quet three times as big as the last. I went down and was weighed again but they couldn't make it out." He paused. "Couldn't make what out ?" the club members asked. "Why," answered the quiet man, "they owed me four and tuppence." In explaining his reason for turn ing farmer, Sir Rider Haggard, the great novelist, says :—"There came a time when I was not satisfied with my output of fictional and imagina tive matter, wlien I thought I would like to do something practical in the world, something that would atTect those who followed." He therefore resolved to ...

LATEST. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

LATEST. The German retreat in France is contradicted. Bussians victorious everywhere. The enemy is bombarding, Antwerp with siege guns. A good military authority estimates that Germany has lost 500,000 men. There is heavy firing at Tsing Tsau. Our readers who intend visiting Ballarat during South Street Competi tions should make a point of visiting the studio of Richards and Co., the famous Ballarat photographers. The beautiful work for which this firm is tamed will appeal to everyone—even those who, as a rule, do not pay much attention to portraits, come under its spell. In the enlarging department can be seen some remarkable examples of enlarged work done from photographs so old and faded as to be almost worth less, yet with specially powerful appa ratus every line and feature is distinctly reproduced.

FURIOUS WARFARE WEARY ARMIES. GERMANS RETREATING. RUSSIA VICTORIOUS. THE EMDEN AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

FURIOUS WARFARE « WEARY ARMIES. GERMANS RETREATING. RUSSIA VICTORIOUS. THE EMDEtT AGAIN. Continuous progress is being made by the Allies' left. It is considered that the Germans will attempt another supreme effort before retreating from the Valley of the Aisne. Expert opinion is to the effect that the seizure of the heavily fortified town of Antwerp would involve such a heavy loss of life that the enemy, under present conditions, dare not attempt to subdue that city. Details of further exploits by the Belgians demonstrate that, far from ' being subdued, their clash and daring have enabled them to repulse larger bodies of German troops. It is held that, man for man, the Belgian is a better fighter than the German, i Russian statements are confirmed that the Austrians have lost 60,000 killed and 150,000 wounded. The Russian armies, advancing in parallel lines, are driving the retreating Austrians upon Cracow, and a further catastrophe to the Austrian arms seems imminent. It is reporte...

AUSTRALIA AND THE EMPIRE. FIXING OF PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

AUSTRALIA AND THE EMPIRE. FIXING OF PRICES. The Cook Ministry issued a procla mation prohibiting the export of gram to any country save Great Britain, un less the written consent of the Minister of Customs was first obtained. The Fisher Ministry issued a further pro clamation, forbidding the export of grain even to Gieat Britain without the consent of the Minister. In New South Wales Labor fixed the price of wheat at 4/2, in Victoria a Liberal Govern ment has fixed it at .1/9. Thus each party admits fully and frankly, that the well being of the Commonwealth and of the Empire must be preserved, even though the liberty usually allowed to the citizen to " do as he pleases with his own " is seriously curtailed. In lime of war any citizen may be called on to defend his country at the cost of his life, and assuredly, that being so, it would be absurd to allow other citizens to sacrifice the country and enhance their profits. Yet the patriotic producer may not unnaturally feel aggrieved an...

TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OLD. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 2 October 1914

TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OLD. The Eiffel Tower has just cele brated its twenty-filth birthday. TJio great structure, which is over 900ft. high, has now become quite a part of Paris, but when it was first erected there was a storm of protests, and such well-kaiown names in the world <J art as Gounod, Leconte de Lisle, Coppce, Bonnat, and Maepaussant signed a petition against it. The tower is extraordinary light for its size, and for many years tho belief w"as persistent that one fine morning it would be found levelled to the ground. The result is that the Champ de Mars district of Paris has only just been really laid out and. built on. People have forgotten their fears now, and are ready to live in the shadow of tho Eiffel Tower. A prominent motor-car manufac turer had the idea of naming his cars after flowers. Said he to a friend :— "I think of calling that now^ear over there," pointing to a huge rod limousine, "the Crimson Ramble." But his friend, who had been out in the indica...
