AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914

AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. The Australian 'eucalyptus, or, as it is commonly called, the gum tree, has a world-wide reputation. It has been grown successfully.in many countries, and in New Zealand it :has been found that its growth is, in favorable spots, faster than in Australia. In Brazil, in which country the eucalyp tus was first introduced a quarter of a century ago, the authorities have came to recognise its intrinsic value for timber. Some ten years ago the' systematic culture of the tiee was be- gun, and recently Senhor Andrade, Chief of.the Forest Service in Brazil, came to Australia to secure further varieties, and to consult with Mr. Maiden, Director 'of the- Sydney Bo tanic Gardens, who is regarded as the chief authority on eucalypti. The Gov ernment of Brazil desires; to cultivate the tree for .the sake of' the timber, which is eminently suitable for rail -way sleepers and also' for" fuel for railway locomotives.~ Eveh in Austra lia it has been found necessary to re 'sort t...

NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914

NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN ''For many years Europeans .strove in vain to master the art of ,a certain kind of painting executed by the Chinese. 'It' was a comparatively easy I-atter to obtin., the "materials,.= viz.;: the brushes, paints- and-.the" particillar kind of paper used-but there the matter. ended. They failed to get the 'paper .to "take" the paints.:: Persuasion and bribes alike: failed 'to extract from the wily Oriental: the *secret.of applying the colors; 'nd.:for years the art remained thel kn.wledge *of the Chinese. It fell to the lot of a younig English bank-clerk to discover the .secret. One day-unknown to the. artists he was watching them at work. He was struck by the fact that each time before dipping the brush into the paints, they rubbe.d it through their hair vigorously a few times. He procured the necessary mater ials and tried to put the colors on, in the ordinary way of course, without success. He then cleaned the brush, rubbed it through his hair a few times...

Original Poetry. "WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN." [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914

Original Poetry. " WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN." "Of all sad words by tongue or pen the .-saddest is "What might have been." Stand aside, tread not on that grave, for buried there lies life's fond dream, And round about on every side are many graves of "might have been; And unto God I cry: In Thy. great might, in Thy great power, Why, Lord, hast Thou slain so fair a flower? I might have hailed the glorious moon that brightly rose oer land and sea, Welcome bid the shades of even, wel come if they hide not you from me; Glorious youth, that poets chant, happy youth to some .I wean, To me has left but memory sad, of happy dreams that might have been. Guileless were the dreams we dreamt, happy as the angels' dream, Clouds, our lives could never enter, so to us it once did seem; Now life's sun is at its midday, and the blast of time is blowing keen, And all that's left of happy youth is to think what might have been. When life's shadows reach their longest, When my life is all a past, When they ...

WORLD'S BEEF MARKET. ADVICE TO VICTORIANB FARMERS. Attention was directed last week by Dr Cameron (the director of Agri culture) to the necessity for increasing ithe number of cattle on farms, in view of the shortage of beef in Europe and America. The director said be was pleased to see' the decided improve ment in the deinand for high class stud stock, of beef varieties, as evi denced by the greatly increased prices at the stud stock sales in connection with the Sydney Show. Some of the prices showed an advance of from 200 to 300 per cent on those obtaining up till now, indicating that the stock breeders of the Commonwealth had realised the necessity for taking steps to provide for increased requirements for the world's meat supply.

Can The Public Win? [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914

Can The Public Win ? In proportion to its population, Australia devotes more time and money to horse-racing than any coun try in the world. It is the gambling element, of course, that sustains the racing to such an extent, and in "Life" for May, just published, the question is discussed, "Has the gene. ral public that .supports the racing a fair chance of coming out on the right side in its transactions. with the bookmakers " " G. M. Dash, who. has had a very long and varied- acquaintance with racing, argues the question very, closely, and produces a list of argu ments and examples to illustrate the felicitous logic of the racecourse gam-' bler. He analyses many of the sys tems and superstitions upon whichi the man-in-the-street .speculates his money, and shows how futile these are. Withobu in any way adopting the pulpit attitude, but. merely as a hard headed business man, he reiter ates " Punch's" advice to those about to gamble,' "Don't," This is one of a series of special, illust...

LIBERAL WORKERS. A NEW FIGHTING ARM. PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL INSTITUTE. The more efficient organisation of Liberals in politics is a problem that' merits over increasing attention The formation of a Liberal Workers'-Insti tute in Melbourne has therefore aroused the keenest interest throukhout - the whole of Austrfalia. It has long been recognised that unless something were done to stem the pluesent lamentable drift of. workers to the Labor Party, nothing could prevent Liberalism being degraded into a class organisation. With" its proud boast of standing for all the people, it must not only legis late for all classes, but represent all. Behind the Liberal Party in Australia has ever . been: a large vote ot the mosie intelligent workers but hitherto it lias been to a large extent a silent one By the formation of an institute for workers -only, the Liberal working man has' now a certitude of receiving that recognition his past services have merited, that recognition which is need ful if th...

Dookie Agricultural College. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914

Dookie Agricultural College. The monthly report of the above col- lege for March is to hand and shows that satisfactory work is being done. In the report it is stated that the farm manager, Mr. Gamble, took a motor trip during the vacation to visit former students who are located on the land in different parts of the State. Mr Gamble states-" It was and agreeable surprise to find students who had left the college only three or four years ago making remarkable headway. In most cases they had bought land for- merly sheep runs and in its virgin state, so that they had to start right at the beginning by planning the homestead, going out and subdividing paddocks, making provision for water, and erecting fences, sheds, etc., and are now in a xxxable way. They are good citizens taking a live interest in the xxx of the district, and in every way xxxding their training at the college. For all beginners there were times when they had to battle hard to overcome xxxalties in the way, but by per...

OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 28 April 1914

OBITUARY. The death of Mrs Albert Borneman, which occurred in Cohuna last Tuesday, came as a great shock to her large circle of friends. The cause of death was ap pendicitis, for which an operation was performed on Monday by Drs Nankivell and Merrillees, the latter having been hastily summoned from Pyramid Hill. This, however, was of no avail, and not withstanding all efforts to sustain her, she sank and died a few hours later. The deceased lady was the wife of Mr Albert Borneman of Mincha East, and only daughter of Mr William Goulding, of Cohuna. She was only 20 years of age, and leaves an infant son of eight months. The funeral, which took place on Thurs day, was one of the largest ever seen in Cohuna, both families being widely known and highly respected. Much sym pathy is felt for the bereaved relatives. The burial service was conducted by Rev E. Baker. __________________

CORRESPONDENCE. I----+- SEVENTH DAY ADVENTISM. REV JOSEPH NICHOLSON IN REPLY. (To the Editor "Kerang New Times.") Sir,-Pastor Steed has ventured to call my exposition of " Seventh Day Adventism"-induced by re peated attempts by Seventh Day people to proselytise my flock when I was a Pastor--an "at tack." My paper is more worthy of the title "defence" than " at tack." As Pastor Steed has " re viewed" it in your columns, the natural thing is for me to ask you to print the article, that the pub lic may: see both sides. I hope you will do this as my time is too valuable to expend in hair-split ing quibbles about matters that do not contribute to direct moral advancement. Yours, etc. JOSEPH NICHOLSON. 315 Little Collins St, Melbourne. April 24th. [The rev gentleman's article is too lengthy to be published in full, but the more important para graphs, especially those bearing directly on the questions at issue, will be found on page 4.-Ed K.N.T.]
