Agricultural Notes. It looks like rain at last, but hitherto dry weather, frosts gloomy prospects for the coming wheat Crop and distressful conditions.for stock necessitating hand feeding, are the burden of the weather reports, alike throughout Northern Victoria, South Australia and Riverina. There are of course, the exceptional localities that are not so bad, but the general situtation is not favorable. As to the wheat crop, it is this season in a position outside of the ordinary. The wheat areas this season have not yet received their necessary heavy rainfall of from two to three inches, ,and for the want of this there has been a very unfavorable and un equal germination. With a satura tion after seeding the wheat plant can stand extraordinary hardship later on, but not without.

A STARTLING SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 5 August 1914

A STARTLING SUGGESTION. That condemned murderers should have the opportunity of submitting themselves to vivisection and thus se cure a "chance to work out their own salvation," instead of being hanged, was the startling suggestion made by the Mayor of Bath, Dr. Preston King, at a meeting of the local anti-vivisec tionlsts: Ho suggested that, while the nation ltept capital punishment in its code of laws, and thought it right for so ciety at large that a criminal who had committed murder should be hanged, they should give the condemned man the option of subjecting himself to some simple kind, not the grosser kind, of vivisection—such, for in stance, as feeding on tuberculosis milk or injection of germs of various ' kinds, such as those of sleeping sick ness. Diseases like sleeping sickness could be studied better in the human being than in the animal. Those were the things he would subject the condemned criminal to If he were willing to be so subjected, his life be ing already forfei...

WHAT ARE THE "DEAD-HEADS?" [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 5 August 1914

WHAT ARE THE "DEAD-HEADS?" To trace the origin oE the now fa miliar term "dead-heat" we must go to America, and some fifty years back. At that time the principal avenue of the city of Detroit, Michigan, had a toll-gate at its juncture with the ceme tery road. As the cemetery had been laid out long before the construction of the plank road, it was made one of the conditions of the road com pany's charter that funeral proces sions should he allowed to pass along there and back again toll free. One day, Dr. Price, a well-known physi cian, when he stopped to pay his toll, observed to the gatekeeper, "Consider ing the benevolent nature of our pro fession, I think you ought to let us pass free of charge." "No, no, doc tor," returned the mail, with a merry twinkle In liis eye; "we could never afford that. You send far too many dead-heads through here as it is!" Although the joke was decidedly one against himself, no one relished it more than the doctor, who did not forget to relato it to h...
