VICTORIAN RACING Bad Starting. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 14 February 1925

VICTORIAN RACING By "Observer." Bad Starting. It is inconceivable how, with the mo dern barrier arrangements, the field for sprint events particularly should be sent away in such a straggling order. Of course, there is always the "horse" clement to allow for, and also the fact that each and every jockey in the race is supposed to be straining every nerve to get the best of the start to the disadvantage of other starters, but, making the most liberal allowances for these, it can still be claimed that Saturday after Saturday at least one race is marred by bad starting. No one would suggest for a moment that bad starts were effected pur posely for any base reason. They are just error of judgments. and the result of short temper and lack of patience. A starter should possess all these, and at the same time should not be allowed to officiate in races any longer when the fact has become I,roved that he has a grudge against jockeys, and (does not intend to give them the consideration they ...

Sunshine Advocate SATURDAY, FEB. 7, 1925 [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 14 February 1925

Sunshine Advocate SATURDAY. FEB. 7, 1925 Quite a crowd assembled at the last council meeting, interest having been stirred up in regard to a number of blocks held in and around the town ship of Sunshine for which there are .no titles available. Years ago, half a century or more, a township was surveyed in the locality of Albion on B3allarat road, and blocks were sold by the hundred. It might be termed the first land boom of Australia. Likewise the first model town was to be established, wherein there would be. no religious or other strife. There must have been some propaganda at work to dispose of these blocks, which went off like hot cakes. Then the gold rush set in, and the buyers of blocks forgot all about their pur chases, or fell by the wayside like ripe matured apples, and their re cord of worldly wealth vanished with them. Hundreds of the allotments were unowned, and the shire council, or its executive, took upon itself some 20 or more years ago to lease the blocks for the co...

ARE YOUR LIPS PRETTY? [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 14 February 1925

ARE YOUR LIPS PRETTY? If they aren't-they ought to be! A girl's lips should be rosy and soft and prettily shaped, and, left to Na-. ture, they would be; but, alas! so many girls spoil them by carelessness or ignorance. To begin with they should be red, -not only because the colour' is beautiful, but because it is an Indi-. cation of health The pale-lipped. girl needs tonics and lots of fresh air. She is anaemic, and no girl with this malady can ever hope to have either clear eyes or glossy hali . any more than she can own cherry' lip,s Many girls spoil their lips by their habit of continually playing with them. To pull or pinch the lips: will quickly cause them to swell, and grow thick. Biting the lips, or con-., tinually moistening them with the tongue, speedily spoils them altoge: ther; for once lips have become real., ly cracked and roughened they never recover their velvet delicacy, Break yourself therefore of any bad habit of pinching or biting your lips. that you may have cont...

THE AGREEABLE GUEST. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 14 February 1925

THE AGREEABLE GUEST. " The agreeable guest is the one wbtd. is not always thinking of. her own good times. She is ready for any gaiety, but does not look injured when pleasures are slack. The girl who cannot content herself with a book or fancy work when her hos tess is busy, will always have a sigh of relief drawn for her leaving. The agreeable guest knows how to "llt in." She wins the" heart of the old grandmother, and has the children at her heels. She cheerfully helps when the maid leaves, or will pre side at a meal in the sudden absence of her hostess. Aggressiveness has lost many a girl coveted invitations. No one hankers for the society of the person who forces her personality. It is as possible to be aggressively agreeable as aggressively disagree able. . The girl of neutral manner may not be brilliant, but she is not cranky, officious, hypercritical, nor given to showing off, monopolising conversation and demanding, atten-, tion. She appreciates what is done for her, and ne...

HOME GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 14 February 1925

HOME GARDENING. By "-Heather Jock." Few flowers so easily managed give such fine results for the amateur gar dener as does the stock. The only part that often annoys the grower is that when he gets a good variety and looks for a goodly number of double flowers he may at times find the greater portion come singles. It is held by some that they can pick the doubles as seedlings. All I can say is that I have not found the one who can. Some claim that strong seed lings from the raising bed are doubles, some claim that they are the weaker seedlings. My experience is that neither is .rcally correct, as I have found that either will at times produce a percentage of single flowers. Some varieties are more to be depended on than others for producing the double flowering plants, but the climatic con ditions during the fertilisation period have, in my opinion, more to do with the matter than most things. We can safely divide stocks into three different classes. The ten-week is a variety that c...

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 14 February 1925

POULTRY NOTES. By "Tight Feather." Should poultry have free range of the orchard ? It is very freely advocated that to keep poultry in the orchard is econo mical for the following reasons:-(1) That the same ground will do for both fowls and fruit trees; (2) that the fowls will manure the ground; and (3) that they will rid the place of in sect pests. To keep fowls in the garden (either flower or vegetable) for the same rea sons is never advocated; in fact, it is so easy to see the bad effects on the garden that the experiment is rarely, if ever, attempted. Most people have had the experi ence of fowls getting into the flower or vegetable garden, without permis sion, at some time or other, with re sults anything but satisfactory; so it is not necessary to point out that to attempt growing fowlu and vegetables or flowers in the same ground is not advisable. On the other hand, the bad side in allowing poultry in the orchard is not often taken into account. Those who have had experience ...
