Checkmated. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
Checkmated. As most people know, when travel- \ ling by train in America, the passen- i per at the depot of departure hands ' over his luggage to the officials, and j on payment of a fee receives a metal j check, which he returns in exchange j for his trunks on arrival at his des tination. The system has its advan tages, but also its drawbacks prob ably. the fatal one of loss of the checks, for the baggage master will only hand over the luggage on receipt of the vouchers. A leading light of English Comic Opera, Miss C.P., was going from New York to Philadelphia to join a com pany. Like a prudent young lady, she packed away her dollar bills in her swanbill corsets, but her baggage checks she had left in her pocket. Pre sently she fell asleep and did not ful ly awake till, in a "semi-dozy" state, she fancied she felt a slight pull at her dress. Opening her eyes she found that a very gentlemanly looking man was sitting next to her. She put her hand in her pocket. The checks were gone. ...
SCOURING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
SCOURING CALVES. _ From experiments carried out in j Germany it is claimed to have been discovered that sour milk given to calves from the first to the fifth day! o£ their lives, forms an excellent pre- | ventive of scour. The constant losses j —sometimes of valuable pedigree j calves—are well known in most herds, j and are attributed to the curdling of ! the milk in the stomach. The bacteria j in sour milk are supposed to act hene- ! ficially. In Germany it is called yog- j hurt, produced by adding Bacillus bul- i garicus to milk. This generates lac- I tic acid in the stomach of the calves, I which acts as a disinfectant, and pre vents the development of the hurt ful bacteria, and at the same time, sti mulates the activity of the intestine, probably by producing a ferment that destroys the bacilli which give rise to scour.
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. Within the past ten years the dairy cows of Australia have increased from,] one million to above two millions. The j butter produced in a single year reach ed about 200,000,000 lbs. The annual J export is valued at between £3,000,000 | and £4,000,000. No rural industry in j Australia more progressive and none | pays larger returns to the farmers. The | mainstay of dairying is the e;port market, and easily the largest con sumers of Australian butter abroad are the people of the United Kingdom. It might be thought that the expense of carrying butter from Australia to London would be a serious handicap upon butter-making in the Common wealth. As a matter of fact, however, the Australian dairy farmer, in point of cost, is as close to London as the dairy farmers of Ireland or Scotland. The actual contract price oV shipping butter from either Melbourne or Syd ney to London is d. per lb.
DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
•DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. 1 An English dairying authority says: The elimination of the worthless ani mals should be one of the chief ob jects of the cow keeper. Milk records kept carefully and sys tematically furnish reliable informa tion which- enables a cow keeper to de tect these worthless animals; and it pays him to dispose of them at once. There are some farmers, of course, who may be tempted to rely wholly on their own judgment as far as the milking capacities of any cow is con cerned; but guess-work of. this kind can teach nothing what it costs to feed cows, nor whether such food is being economically fed in relation to the average quantity of milk produced. Milk producers need to study this question of cost of food in relation to milk yield very carefully indeed. The fact is clear that a cow giving, say, 800 gallons per annum costs practic ally no more to feed than one which only gives 600 gallons; yet, compara tively speaking, there is a loss of £6 on the latter, if...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
II. me letter staggered Hugli, aud his perplexity increased the more he thought upon it. Well done or ill-done, he felt it his duty to let Leila know exactly what had happened, and to let her know immediately, If ahe charged him with a breach of trust, he knew he would not defend him self with success, for had he not pledged his. word to her, and would a woman believe him? Upon the oth er side was the wisdom of Geraldine. How shrewd she had been; how quick to do the right thing! He began to see that all h'lB heroics in the prison were so much vain-glorious nonsense, and would never have stood the test of reason. It would have been mad ness to have carried away the lad upon the yacht, and opinion would have condemned both man and wife. Geraldine had solved the riddle. Hr had yet to learn what pri-e of Leila's affections he must pay for her wit. Would Leila condemn him. He re membered her sweetness, her despair, the gentle sorrow she had made bo brave an effort to hide from him. And h...
CHAPTER XIII. The Price of Silence. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
CHAPTER XIII-. The Price of-Silence. I Hugh returned to the Carlton Ho tel at a quarter to Ave. He was a little surprised not to find Geraldine there; hut he imagined that she might have taken Desdy to the Hippodrome or to Maskelyne's—she who had such little taste for all theatrical shows herself. Had she done so, it would have been a new victory for this ama zing child, who seemed able to bring [ anybody to his feet, and had already conquered naif the staff at the Carlton —while he was an eternal source of wonder to the matchless Joseph. Hugh was well aware of Geraldine's real affection for him, but he began to think that never would he .have her favor for Leila, but for the untoward circumstances of these later days. There are some women who can live a whole lifetime upon a volcano of profound emotions, and yet never let the world tee so much as a wraith of smoke above the inscrutable mount. Geraldine was just such a woman. There were circumstances whereun der she would have given...

WINTER CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
WINTER CARE. The season is at hand that is the hardest on our ever faithful friend the horse. The raw, damp, windy or extreme cold weather, together with a little neglect, may cause the loss of a valu able horse. When a horse comes in wet from work or drive, rub htan well and cover with a warm woollen blanket. Always change to a dry blanket when the horse has cooled. Rub the legs well with a wisp of straw or a towel. Every horse is more or less warm when he comes in from a drive. Never strip off the harness or saddle and let the horse rush into a feed of oats or a trough of water. Never give water or oats to a horse until he has been in the stable some time, and has had some hay. This is a sane and safe practice and much loss can be avoided by en forcing it. Change the bit of the horse with the sensitive mouth. Take off the check, or let it out Try a large rub ber-covered bit. If the horse "drives on one line," look to his teeth at once; a sharp tooth is usually the cause..
VETCHES OR TARES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
VETCHES OR TARES. Vetches or tares are of two distinct kinds—those sown in the autumn for spring or early summer use, and those sown in the spring which come in after the winter sowing is used up. There are few crops which yield such a large amount of succulent green food, though perhaps for special pur poses other crops are preferable, but for general use and under all condi tions tares cannot be beaten. The amount of seed required per acre is about three bushels of tares and one bushel of oats or rye, the latter bein^ sown to keep the tares off the ground somewhat and so prevent rotting in wet weather. In order to gain the full benefits from growing this green crop the sow ings should be made at different inter vals, beginning as early as possible, when the land can be prepared, so that successive cuttings, are obtained v-Mthout allowing them to become ripe. Tares are more suitable fov soiling purposes than grazing,as this latter plan is very wasteful, much of the food being tramp...
THE BUSY BEE [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
THE BUSY BEE Winter is close upon us. In the coolest of our districts bees have al ready retired, and before the monl'i is out the retirement will be general. During the warmer portions of the days, especially i£ the sun is bright, the bees will still venture out, but they will not wander far from home ii last month's advice has been ac tended to, i.e., if they are supplied with sufficient honey to carry them on till spring, or the coming breeding season. If bees are forced to go for aging on bright winter days, the sud den atmospheric changes prevent the return of many, and a good supply of food in the hive is the only remedy. I* also forms one of the best methods to keep up the warmth of the hive. On every occasion when the weather is bright and drying, remove the wraps, etc., from the hives, and spread theni out to dry. External dampness produces internal dampness, which is one of the most prolific causes of di sease. Just before sundown return the protections to the hives. The e...

"My Mother's Eyes." A newspaper recently invited ■ its readers to state in a few words what they considered the most beautiful thing in the world. The first prize was awarded to the sender of the answer, "The eyes of my mother." "The dream of that which we J'now to be impossible," suggested an ima ginative person, and this brought him second prize. But the most amusing thing was that which read— "The most beautiful thing in the world is to see a man carrying his mother-in-law across a dangerous riv er without making any attempt to drop her in."
MODERN CHEESE-MAKING [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914
MODERN CHEESE-MAKING, "" la ordinary work wo liave long boon used to "pasteuring" milk for the pur pose either of preserving it or of en suring good butter being made. This idea is now being extended to the manufacture of cheese, and a "re search bulletin," issued by the Univer sity of Wisconsin, gives the result of two years' experiments on this line. The milk is first of all "pasieurised" by raising it to a temperature of from 160 deg. to 1G5 deg. JFahr. This, of course, is for the purpose of getting rid of all deleterious microbes and ' taints which may be now non-microbie. After this the milk is acidulated by a. very small quantity of hydrochloric aoid, and then ail allowance of pure bacteria cultuvo or "starter" is added —tho said culturo being the ordinary lactic acid bacillus. After this the rennet is added, and tho whole process now goes forward in a straight metho dical manner. Under the old methods it must be acknowledged that in spite of all the advances that have been, m...

Not Her Sort. After he had fallen upon his knees and kissed her hand she said: "Before I answer 'Yes' or 'No,' there are some things I would like to ask 'you. Do you ever drink or gamble?" "No," he eagerly replied. "I do not know what the taste of liquor is; I have never defiled my lips with to bacco. I have never uttered a profane word in my life. I have never even played bridge where a prize was at stake." She looked at liim thoughtfully .for a moment, drew a long sigh, and then asked: "Have you ever broken a woman's heart?" "Ah, how can you ask me that?" he almost reproachfully answered. "If I had ever spoken words of love to another I would not deem myself worthy to touch the hem of your gar ment. I have never cared for anyone but you. I have never kissed any wo man except my mother. I have never given any girl cause to utter one sor rowful sigh.
