BIOGRAPH AND THE PRESS. Movies to Train Reporters. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914
b7ograph and the press. Movies to Train Reporters. The Columbia School of Journal ism has introduced a new method of training tlieir embryo journalists. Mo tion pictures will be shown to the stu dents in the future, and they will be required to write. them up as jf they had actually seen tne events 1p. real life represented on the screen. The first pictures to be used were three reels of the Balkan War films. In this way the faculty hopes to be able to train the scholars in accuratc observation in reporting the events as' they happen. In explaining the reason for adopt ing motion pictures to train students in journalism, Dr. Talcott Williams, director of the School of Journalism, said:— "In adopting the new experiment in education the School of Journalism hopes to overcome its greatest ob stacle, that of giving the students practice in reporting actual events, and at the same time making it pos sible for the instructors to know how accurately and thoroughly the work I has been done....

R°B»R Its great fun for me to watch some of my competitors. When they commence in business they seJ) everything the public want, but when they get on their feet a bit "they begin to put on side" "hoighty toighty"—"they don't keep this" and won't stock that—just as if their customers were all brainless idiots, with no opinion of their own and lucky to' be supplied by them at all. 1 once had a shop close to one of those fellows and one of the lines he would'nt keep was Robur tea—and my word the number of customers of his who used to come to my shop to get it would surprise you, and they used to buy other things from me at the same time. I'm an old stager at the game and I take jolly good care to keep whatever Vm asked for—talking about Robur—it's not my place to boost it up—there isn't enough to be made out of it, for that— but it's really astonishing how people grow to like it and how hard it is to get them off it once they get started. 1 sell about as much of the No. 2 Grade as I do...

A FRIEND ADVISED HER. Tho following letter from Mrs. Thomas Brown, of Healesville, Vic., will prove interesting to many of our readers:— "Some time ago I suffered from a severe attack of kidney complaint. The flrst symptoms were groat weak ness and emaciation with terrible pain all over my body, especially across my back. My whole body was racked with pain, and I could get but little ease day or night. Medicines were prescribed for me, but failed to do me any good. I cared very little what became of me, I was so weak I and miserable. I had nearly given up all hope when a friend advised me to ] try Warner's Safe Cure. I commenced to take it, and derived great 'benefit from taking the contents of the first' bottle. I continued to take the medi cine, getting stronger and better every dry. I soon regained my former strength and energy, the pains left me, and I seemed to have a new lease of life. I am now quite strong and happy." Warner's Safe Cure is a wonderful r edy 1n cases of kidney...

YOU NEVER CAN TELL. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914
YOU NEVER CAN TELL. Spindrift and „bilge and the world turns over! What is the dross and what the gold? The snake and the lark ha' nests in tlie clover, And which is best when the tale is toldl Thrice I sinned—oh, the heavens' joy ance! Breasts angelic shook wi' the joke; Once did good—oil, earth's annoy ance! Hell to pay and the bank gone broke! James drank poison at love's deris ion; John swigged ale, and swank in the sun, Throve, and came to a dark decision, And, "Christ—that I were the other one!" Setli in the swamp and Dan on the mountain— Either dreamt that he chose his times: Dan bent young to a fevered foun tain; Seth grew old by the older slimes. The stolen dollar in Larry's pocket Turned a bullet to Harry's side—, It missed by a hair his mother's loc ket: The thief lives yet and the good man died. Justice! Justice! Where is thy pal ace, Hope o' the planet's dark romance? Whose is the blood in thy broken > chalice, ■Slave o' clianco? But there is no chance! —George Sterl...
SEED POTATOES. Necessity for Careful Selection. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914
SEED POTATOES. ji Necessity for Careful Selection. Numbers of growers have had l'ea son to complain of the quality of their seed potatoes. Perhaps they are them selves to blame to some extent for not taking greater care in selecting the seed. The seed potato which is most favored is one weighing from two to four ounces, and the grower who makes a rule of excluding from his lines all that fail to come within this standard will give satisfaction to the purchaser and to those who handle his consignments. Not only will he be able to command n higher price 111 a bare market, but in a full market his stock will bring him quick and good returns, while that of liis less careful neighbor will hang fire and possibly at the last be sacrified. Diseased and scabby potatoes should on no account be allowed to pass. Knobby and misshapen sets should also bo strictly excluded. It needs but very few of these to completely spoil a whole line. The result of growing from tlie same stock year after year w...

LIGHT LOAMS FOR DAIRY FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914
LIGHT LOAMS FOR DAIRY FARMS. The ideal soil for a dairy farm is a loam of medium to light texture. A loam is the name usually applied to soil which contains fair proportions of the principal plant food ingredients, and is rich in that Important constitu ent humus which is known to play so large a part in plant growth. Loamy soils are usually low lying, and while sufficiently open texture to al low the winter rains to pass through without lodgment or stagnation, they are at the same time so pervious that even in dry summer weather the J water underneath comes up with such freedom they very seldom suffer from drought. For this reason loamy soils usually carry a good growth, of grass during the greater part of the year— from early spring to late in the au tumn. In addition to this the herb age produced on them- is usually of good quality, and when properly treat ed and kept clear of objectionable weeds, such herbage will be found to consist very largely of the better descriptions of gr...
