ROUND THE WORLD FOR A WIFE [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
ROUND THE WORLD FOR A WIFE Garbed in the picturesque dress of his native country, Demetre Dann, a .Roumanian, twenty-three years of age, is walking around the world In order to win a bride. Incidentally, lie also seeks to win a wager of £4000 by covering 6300 miles on foot within six years. He styles himself the "globe-trot ting Roumanian artist-dancer." He fought in the Balkan War, and is proud of the fact. . After he has com pleted the arduous task he has set himself, he wishes to claim a brrle among the hills of Roumania and set tle down in London—with his wife and the £4000. His life at present is not quite so pleasant as his dreams of the future. Although he claims to be expert in the use of five languages, he is com pelled to sell post-cards as a means of livelihood. Often he is treated with scant courtesy—a fact which may be due to his inability to speak English. He confesses he is homesick, but he means to "keep on keeping on," for the sake of the £4000 and the bride to-be.<...
SHOCKS CAUSE DUMB TO SPEAK [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
T SHOCKS CAUSE DUMB TO SPEAK The recent case of a- young woman in England who, after being deaf and dumb for twenty-one years, is slowly recovering both hearing and speech— the shock of the tragic end of her brother, who drowned himself in the Stour, being regarded as responsible for the miraculous example of shock succeeding where doctors have failed —recalls similar instances. Some time ago the narrow escape of a boy from drowning off North Shields fish quay had a remarkable sequel. While efforts were being made to restore the apparently drowned boy to consciousness by means of artificial respiration, a man who had been deprived of speech two years earlier as the result of an acci dent pushed through the crowd mere ly out of curiosity. As soon as he saw the prostrate boy, although not in any way related to him, the sight gave him. such a shock that hi3 speech suddenly returned and he fell to the ground in a state of co'lapse. Upon recovering he continued to speak freely, and has s...
BELGIAN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
BELGIAN H0R8E8. The plucky fight put up by the Bel gians in defence of their native land, which is only in accord with the an cient reputation of the race, the citi zens of Liege in particular having the reputation of being "turbulent," which usually only meant independent—not bowing the neck to an arrogant nobil ity—has directed the eyes of the world once more to this kingdom. The soil and climate are both favorable to the development of large-framed horses. From very early times, the people have given much attention to breeding them, and it is said" that the Roman cavalry was mainly mounted on Bel gian horses. The draught breeds -of Great Britain and France certainly owe a great deal to the horses of this country, as the heavy Flemish horse was largely used in their formation. Horse breeding is carried on now on small farms, and, therefore, on a limit ed scale and individually; but "the total number of horses exported was, in 1913, 31,000 head, mainly to Germany, and the value ran...

SPECIAL NOTES FOR SEPTEMBER [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
SPECIAL NOTES FOR SEPTEMBER September is one of the best months for Incubation, and incubators should be kept going until the middle of October, not later. Hatch out all t* e heavy meat birds first, lighter breeds may be raised during the lat ter part of the season. August and September chicks make winter lay ers. Spray houses, and so guard against lice. Add a little crude car bolic to lime when lime-washing houses. Sprinkle lime when you find a damp corner. Don't feed chicks too soon. They should be quite 24 hours from the shell before starting to feed—fine oat meal, stale breadcrumbs, and a little hard-boiled egg, slightly moistened with skim milk, but not pasty. Chick en feed should always be on the dry side, and never sour. When your chickens are about four days old, add very finely chopped raw onion to meal, a little calcined bone and char coal, all of which are structural ele ments. Avoid salt entirely. Remember, chickens require feed ing a little at a time, but often. Slightl...
WHY NOT PLAN AND RE-ARRANGE? [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
WHY NOT PLAN AND RE-ARRANGE? A walk of twenty feet and back, across living room or kitchen, twenty two times repeated, makes a mile, and country kitchens are not small as a rule. Repeated thus often every day in the year—as happens with hundreds of farmers' wives—it equals a journey of 365 miles in length and in the strain it puts on the woman's strength and energies. Furthermore, it is sel dom that the woman traverses the dis tance empty-handed; she carries pails of water or milk, loads of dishes, bas kets of supplies, often the baby. Sup posing her average load on these short tripB to be only ten poundB, it amounts in a year to over forty tons. When to these indoor journeys is added the frequent trip to the distant well—stiil too often demanded, even in the pre sence of cheap methods of supplying running water in kitchen and bath— the wonder is that the wife and moth er "lasts" as long as she does. Why not, where such avoidable journeys are endured, try a little planning and re-ar...
A QUICK MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
A QUICK MARRIAGE. Housewives who find the servant problem a source of endless worry may find some consolation in the fact that in no country is the matter a perfectly Bimple one. Miss Evelyn Adam, in "Behind the Screens" in Japan, describes' some of the difficul ties of keeping servants in that coun try. The maidservants are untrust worthy, but they are gentle and cheap —while they stay: Unfortunately they are fond of playing the vanishing trick upon their mistresses. A lady in Tokio had a valuable ser- . vant of somewhat mature years, who rejoiced in the poetic name of "Oharu San"—the Honorable Miss Spring. One day at tea-time Miss Spring did not appear. The kitchen was deserted, the kettle was cold; half the luncheon-plates lay immersed in a bowl of soapy water, the other half stood on the sink, ready to be put away. The next morning Oharu San reap peared, and demanded the fragment of wages due to her since the begin ning of the month. The lady asked why she was leaving so suddenl...
NITRIFICATION. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
NITRIFICATION. Farmers read, so much in the agri cultural press and. in scientific papers about nitrification as being a vital process in fertile soils that they may feel inclined to ask—What is thiswi tal process? It is the transformation in the soil of organic substances of a nitrogenous nature into • , Lrates, or, in other words, it is Nature's process of converting into a condition assim ilative as a plant food substances which are not primarily in that con dition. ' It is by means of this wonder ful process that farmyard manure, an imal and vegetable refuse, gradually change their character, or, as is com monly said, "decompose," and become so valuable to plants. But in order that this beneficial change may take place in the soil, certain conditions are indispensable. The air must be able to come into contact with the substances. The soil must be aera ted. This is done by good cultiva tion. "Good cultivation is equal to a manuring," according to an old say ing, and the more com...
Force of Habit. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
Force of Habit. A humorist was looking over a mill, and while, in an unguarded moment, he was perpetrating one of his jokes upon an innocent operative, he was drawn into some ponderous gearing and badly crushed. They extricated him from the ma chinery and laid him on the floor. "Who is it? Who is it?" was the anxious inquiry, as a crowd collect ed. Nobody knew. Then the funny man suddenly open ed his eyes and strove to speak. A sympathetic bystander bent down to catch his words. "There's good reason why nobody recognises me," he whispered, pain fully. "What is it?" asked the sympa thetic one. "Because,"' the humorist explained, as he sa#a chance to get one home, "it's because I've been travelling in cog." That was his final effort, for he never spoke again.
THE REAL ENTERTAINMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
THE REAL ENTERTAINMENT. Mr. Weedon Grossmith once told us a story of one of his early attempts to entertain. A friend of his, Mr. Walter Webb., who had a house in the country, had fitted up a large barn as a sort of theatre, and every now and then -lis gave entertainments there to which the neighboring rustics were invited. On one occasion Mr. Grossmith went down to give an entertainment. The laughter was so great when I was on the stage (Mr. Gross mith told us) that I became greatly embarrass ed, as I could scarcely account for it. The laughter became so great that at last Mr. Webb rose and addressed the audience. "I know," he said, "how difficult it is to restrain our mirth when Mr. Grossmith is on the stage, but if we don't check our laughter the perform ance won't be over till midn'ght.." A burly farmer replied: "Excuse me, Muster Webb, it bain't Mr. Gros smith we be laughin' at, but someone have left the barn-door open an' all the pigs have got in an' they be nigh pushin' of us...

Rushworth-Colbinabbin Railway Trust. SATURDAY, 19TH SEPT., 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 25 September 1914
Rushworth-Oolbinabbin Rail way Trust. Saturday, 19th Sept., 1914. Present—Crs J. M'Kee (chairman), Jno. Brown, I. Furphy, J. M'Orae, W. Gunn, and Mr W. H. Geyle (secretary). From State Treasurer, approving of the rate struck by the trust.—Received. Or M'Orae drew attention to the fact that persons having land near the Mcora station paid a 6d rate, whereas persons having land much further out on the Heathcote road paid 8d. He considered this, very unfair. Four or five persons were concerned in the 8d rate. The chairman thought it best for the persons affected to pay the rate and then to put in an app'ication for a refund, when the trust would consider it. From Railway Department, re request for proper drainage of Mr Toohey's pro perty at Colbinabbin, and stating that two culverts had already been provided in the vicinity of Mr Toohey's property, and it was considered these provided ample drainage provision.—Received.
