READY FOR IT. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 21 July 1914
READY FOR IT. Having a pressing ongagement with good client, an oil merchant was oblig oil to leave his office in solo charge of a scrubwoman. "Now, my good woman," ho said, indicating tlio telephone, "whon you hear the bell ring attached to that lit tle box, just go to the tubo ai.d shout 'Hello 1 Who aro you?" and wait for a reply. The merchant had been gone about half an hour whon the telephone bell rang furiously. The woman rushed a the tube, shouted out tho necessary query r and put the receiver to her ear. "I'm Dobson, from Harlem," cams tho answer. "Got a lot of oil for you, and wiBh to send it on at once. Bo ready to receive it." Presently tho merchant returned, and, to his amazement, saw the woman holding an empty bucket under tho telephone tube.

COURSING CLUB, CHAMPION MEETING. MR. ATKINS WINS FIBST AND SECOND PRIZES. The Champion meeting of the Uluncs District Coursing Club was very successfully concluded on Friday last, when the weather Vaa tine. Coursing commenced in the pad docks near Mr Frasor's homestead, the route of the first day's meeting being taken. Hares were plentiful enough to enable the trials to be com pleted in leisurely manner before lunch. When strong favorites in Tiny Thoughts and Pearlitis were de feated, it could be seen thr.t Mr E. A. Atkin's chances of winning the stake with either Corner King or Miss Lilian were rosy, and not a few ex pressed the opinion-which proved oorrect-that he -would repeat his performance at the first meeting of the club this season, and take both first and second prizes. Cornet"King,- how ever, was very sore on one of his feet, which was minus a toe-nail; and Miss Lillian had had an exceptionally severe gruelling in the course against All Blue.

FEDERAL LIBERAL POLICY MR COOK'S SPEECH. (Contributed.) [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 21 July 1914
FEDERAL LIBERAL POLICY 1 MR COOK'S SPEECH. (Contributed.) The Liberal policy which thp Prime Minister officially an nounced at Parramatta on Wr! nesday, is wide, vigorous, pmrij cal. To say that it is open to honest criticism, is simply to admit that it deals with live is sues, and that on such issues men always have differed, always will differ. But Labor will have to cast about for some argument in place of the Borely overworked assertion, that. Liberalism boasts only a necklace of negations, for Mr Cook outlined work for the Federal Parliament, the right do ing of which would make the three years from September 1914, to September 1917, memorable. First and foremost, Mr Cook put "The preservation, of the principle of responeible govern ment." To that captious, critics have taken exception, contending that this plank binds, Mr Cook to the championship of the party system with "all its defects.. . No contention, could be shallower. Mr Cook doep.pledge himself to oppose the. theorist...

EXPERIENCE V. GENERALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 21 July 1914
EXPERIENCE v. GENERALITIES. There are no liars like statistics, it has been suid, and our memory is al ways lying to us with mere statistios ©f our past experience. All the thought of the world is full of them, for it is all based upon memories, and there is nothing to correct these but the quick ness of present experience. That is what Walt Whitman meant when he said that to look with the eyo confounds tho wisdom of ages. It is not that eaoli ono of us now is wiser than any wiso man of "the past; but that all wis dom has tho past for its material, and can therefore be corrected by an ex perience of tho moment. Wo need not be wiso in our own conceit, but we must not allow tho wisdom of others to dull the freshness of our own expf ience. What some groat man ma»;. s out of his memories may be better than what we make out of our own; but i must not take tho place for us ol. what happens to oui-selvet. Most of tho worst iniquities and oppressions ot the world happen because the oppres s...

IS JHE WHALE DISAPPEARING? Tho fact that iuu ..* milo is disappear ing is pointed out by tho head of tho Paris Natural History Museum. Several spocies will probably soon be lost on account of tho very active hunting be ing carried on at present. No loss than thirty Norwegian companios are engag ed in this work off tho western coast oi Africa, and on tlio eastern coast in the Mozambique region. The danger is as groat from English enterprise. This ac count of the future extinction of the whale led the Academy to pass resolu tions recommending the interest of the government in tho matter, and calling for an international commission.

Soils of limestone origin do not ro- ' quiro as much lime, as a rulo, na soils lacking originally in this clement. Or inary drossings aro from half a ton to 30 cwt. pur aero. It can bo said, howovor, that evon limestone soils Ih'at liavo beon oropped for a good many years often require .some limestone to orrect' aeidily, beoauso thovo is a tou deney for lime to leacli away from th:" npper portion of tho soil.

MAIZE FOR COLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 July 1914
MAIZE FOR COLOR. There are so-called egg foods ga-) lore, but he real thing Is a proper pro portion of maize green food and lean meat. Too often the high-priced win ter egg proves but a pale, flabby af fair with colorless yolk and watery white. This results from feeding without a sufficiency of green food and hard grain, especially maizei Fresh green feed and maize will pro duce the egg with rich, golden yolk and firm white standing up around it -a thing of beauty on the breakfast table and a joy to the breakfaster. An abundance of egg-making food fed to the pullets in an appetising and di gestible form so that large quantities may be eaten and assimilated is ne cessary to prolific egg production at any season, but particularly in win ter. Succulent green food is especi ally essential for this purpose, being in fact one of the things that belong to the springtime with its flush of egg production.
FOR THE FARMER. BRANDING CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 July 1914
FOR THE FARMER; BRANDING CATTLE. Tho great waste o£ money entailed by our present methods of branding cattle Is a subject which periodically crops up in the newspapers and lea ther trade journals. It never appears, however, to get past this stage, for the same Injurious method of apply ing hot Irons to the best part of an animal's hide still continues. In this connection it is pointed out by the English Farmers' Federation that the difference in price of leather, were it not branded, is probably 3d. to 4d. per pound. Then, again, raw hides, if not branded, would fetch Id. per pound more, and, as these hides weigh from CO lb. to 80 lb. the difference in value is very appreciable. The Federa tion advocates either an alteration of the method of branding, or that the animals be branded with smaller brands, on the cheeks, ears, or flanks -not on the rump or the back, as is at present nearly always done. They consider that this would.be equally distinguishable, and would do from 5/- to 7/...
A PERFECT WOMAN. What She Should Measure. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 July 1914
A PERFECT WOMAN. What She Should Measure. If any woman wishes to know if she is a-perfect specimen of her sex she has only to apply to the rules laid down for ascertaining the fact, and figure out results. First as to height; tastes differ, but the Medicean Venus is '5ft. Sin. in height, and this is held by many sculptors and artists to be the most admirable stature. For a woman of 5ft. 5in. 1381b. is the proper weight, and if she is well formed she can stand another 101b. without greatly showing it. ?When the arms are extended she should measure from tip of middle finger to tip of middle finger just 5ft. 5in., exactly lier own heiight. The lengtli of her hand should be just a tenth of that, of her foot just a seventh, and the diameter of her chest a fifth. From the thighs to the ground she should measure just what she measures from the thighs to the top of her heacl. The knee should come exactly midway b'etween the thigh and the heel. The distance from the elbow to the middle finge...
WOMAN'S WORLD. SECRET ENGAGEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 July 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. SECRET ENGAGEMENTS. it is curious what a secretive ten dency some girls exhibit in their love affairs. It seems that the more deeply and truly people care for each other, the less they desire to call the world to come and gaze upon the spec tacle of their devotion. But there is a very happy medium indeed between that and carrying on a love affair in secret. Some girls more especially very young girls have a romantic idea that it 1b de li0htful to keep from those' in author ity the knowledge that they have told someone ue has their love. But let me say here that parents ought at once to be Informed of a pro posal of marriage, and their consent asked, or else no engagement can be entered upon. A man with any sense of honor will wish at once to go to those who have the authority, and ask for their con sent, in such a case. Ho never tries to hide the matter, even if it be for the greater enjoyment of secret understanding between him and the girl he' hopes to make his wife...
CHAPTER III. The Sard Intaglio. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 24 July 1914
CHAPTER III. The Sard Intaglio. Gllray moved back as If that lone, slim hand was some fearful thing fraught with peril. Yet he was strange ly fascinated by it, it aroused all his artistic sense and love of the beauti ful. Nor was he blind to the value of those beautiful old rings that decked it with their glittering brilliants. It seemed to him that he had seen one of them before in a famous collection of jewels. Surely the one with the panel of stones had been part of the D'AIen cus treasures. Gllray could have sworn that he had once had it in his hand for in spection; that it was something he at one time had been half disposed to buy. Sweating and trembling as he was from head to loot, he could not keep these thoughts out of his mind. The slim, white arm advanced, the slender fingers with the nails of pearl were almost on his foot, the waving light made circles of flame in the sha dows, he could see the gleaming eyes of the terrified rats. He could see, too, the dark slime on .the...
