Agricultural Colleges Dookie & Longerenong [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times Annual — 4 November 1916
■ [=] Agricultural Colleges Dookie &- Longerenong *|*T is universally admitted that the ruost successful farmers Xare those who combine fcience with practice. Over 30 years ago the Government of Victoria recognised that fact. T Definite action was decided on, and suitable areas were reserved for agricultural colleges. One is situated at Dookie. in the Goulburn Valley, and another at Longerenong, in the "Wimmera, near Horsham. From both institutions numerous students have graduated and materially benefited the agricul tural industry in various parts of the Commonwealth. But the science of agriculture is still a partially closed book, and the value of such places as Dookie and Longerenong must necessarily increase as land becomes scarcer and im proved methods are imperative. Briefly, it may bo said that the main object of the Dookie and Longerenong Agricultural Colleges is to afford a sound practical training in all that pertains to farming from the prac tical side, and a know...

SOFkENSON in r UNTIL they started to work on a road contract near Mack's farm they had been the two best mates in the bush. Both had been slightly ac , quainted with the farmer before, but the fact that he had a perfect little peach of a daughter, as .Ham Rolin phrased it, was a revela tion. Ham was a demonstrative admirer, who believed himself in vincible where women were con cerned.—' His mate, Dave • Hardy, beyond admitting* that Maria was a fine young woman, kept his opinions and his feelings to himself. He was not a talkative person. — When they visited the farmhouse on Sundays, and were trotted round to inspect the crops and the fowls and the poddy calves, Ham monopolised the old man and orated on things agri cultural to no end; but when Maria was available he shunted the amiable parent on to Dave, and made special effo...

'Tis all a cliequer-board of nights and days Where dertiny with men for pieces plays: Hither and thither moves, and mates, and slays. And one by one back in the closet lays. —Omar Khayyam. LITTLE Mrs Manson was angry. Her plain, usually good-tem pered face was flushed, .and her eyes sparkled rebelliously in the softly-shaded lights of her modest little drawing-room. V "You'll have to stop it!" she ex claimed, indignantly. "He is Dick's friend-—and mine. I won't stand by and see him trifled with!" Her sister fanned herself serenely. The night was hot, stifling. The win dows were open wide, the curtains drawn apart, and the summer roses, all abloom in the garden beyond, flooded the room with their sweetness. "Don't upset yourself," she said quietly, in the low voice that many men had heard . . . as a bird ...

STT T¥ The Adventures of Prince Blue Cap n A FAIRY STOFkY ■ M ■ ■ |=j By ANNIE RENTOUL |' For "The Weekly Times Annual" M ONCE upon a time all the blue bells of Fairyland were ringing for joy. A baby fairy had come to the court of King Oberon and Queen Titania. This tiny baby, no bigger than a ladybird, was the son and heir, and was one day to be the King of all Fairyland. The baby's fairy godmother came to the christening, and brought for a gift a little bonnet woven of blue sky. "Let him wear this always," she said, "and he will always have Heaven about his head, and be good as well as great." So they called him Bluecap. There was also a bad fairy at the christening. She was King Oberon's step-sister, and was jealous of the tiny baby, because her own son, Prince Puckrell, had been the heir till Prince Bluecap came to put his nose out of joint. Prince Puckrell was a wicked hobgoblin. He was ugly, squat, and dwarfish like a toad. At the christen ing Puckrell's mother determined to w...

They were a daily refutation of the man who believes" the aboriginal cannot be made to work regularly; when the truth is that he will not work regularly in any occupation that does not yield him interest, as well as wages. The white man feels it so;, the average, sane white man's happiness is not idleness; but work that he can enjoy, and in this he is full brother to .the black bov. The native who will ride all dav and all night, and back from daWn to dark—yet will refuse to work an hour chopping wood, is full brother to the politician who thinks the work of making l...

For "The Weekly Times Annual" ^ vU:;r?- x 'MV.-r'A * 'MV.-f'M ^VrT^ WHEN John Craig set out in search of a plot for the book for which his publish ers were waiting, chance and a letter from a saucy girl cousin directed his steps to Plane street, "somewhere outside the city," as he was wont to address his com munications to the relation aforesaid. Her words had been few and to the point. "And, for heaven's sake, John, let it be something real this trip. Get to the heart of things if you have to tramp the roads or live in a slum. Let it be life . . . even with a touch of ginger!" He smiled over this last; it was so like Trix. So he took rooms in Plane street. Then he waited for his plot. Some what impatiently be it told. Plane street was like fifty others of its kind in any working-class suburb. The inevitable grocer's shop at the corner; the inevitable uniformity of tiny : houses crowding against their neigh bors, shutting out air and sunlight. As yet inspiratio...

"Meaning—Cadwallader, of course, -Miss Sophy. Were you not engaged before the,war?" The girl brushed a hand over her bronze hair and lifted the sapphires of her face to her companion. "Never engaged. Wally would not consent to it. He always adored me. Said it a number of times. I simply go mad about him, and though he was never in a position to marry . . it's so different now." "Hardly!" The crusty old bachelor talking in the little rose garden over looking the harbor never minced mat ters to Miss Trent. "Wally has all the more reason to—-to refuse your offer, Sophy, seeing that he has re turned with less than he went away with." The girl tossed a fluffy curl out of her eyes. "Pooh! What does it ma...
