Daniel O'ConnelL The following address on the Life and Work of Daniel O'Con iell, the Irish Liberator," was deli *ered by Mr J. Dyvyer at the meet ag of the H.A.C.B.S., Seymour, at he last meeting of the branch : The most prominent figure in rish history some seventy years go was Daniel O'Connell. As we ,ok back upon that period we see is great form flung upon the Irish ky like that of some Titan tower 3g above the heads of men. In reland he was fondly styled, the Liberator"; in England he was nown as the "Irish agitator"; and a Rome his memory his held in enediction as "Champion of the lhurch." No man can be named 'ho at any time in Irish affairs at lined to such popularity' as that thich was O'Connell's in l844,when e was at the zenith of his power. ~ike other master characters in his ry he carved out his own career, nd attained to eminence by virtue f his own strong will and com landing genius. He inherited no irdly title; he succeeded > no territorial influence. le belonged.t...

Avenel. Valedictory to Mr Gibson, When it became known about a fortnight ago that Mr John Gibson, the popular station master here, had received instructions from his department to be in readiness for removal to Gordon railway station, a murmur of disapproval was ex pressed on all sides at, the thought of losing such an efficient and painstaking officer. However, the removal means well deserved pro mofion, which will compensate in some measure the loss fdlt by the townspeople. On thenews becom ing general a meeting was held to consider the most appropriate man ner of recognising the stirling worth of Mr Gibson. A committee was formed, and two collectors ap pointed (Messrs A. McLennon and D. Arkell), with the result that a smoke night and presentation was decided upon. This function duly eventuated on Wednesday evening last, in the Oddfellow's hall. About sixty gentlemen sat down to a well set table, provided by Mr J. Doher ty, of the Harvest Home Hotel. The chair was taken by Mr P. K...
THE DRYING UP OF COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 July 1914
THE DRYING UP OF COWS. An American authority contends that the drying up of cows is oeasier and lass dangerous than is usually sup posed. He writes:--;"To milk a per sistent milker only once a day is a sure way to keep her milking. The only way to dry off a cow is to stop milking her, and at the same time cut off her feed aid change her surroundings; both always check the milk flow.- Keep tile bowelS loose, and after a few days milk her out clean. It will not be long before she is dry. Then watch for an accumulation of rthin milk in the ud der; as soon as this disappears begin to. feed the cow in order to build her up, that she may have- material to grow her unborn calf, and store up ma terial to draw frorp after she freshens to supply the drain on her system made by the milk pail. It has been carefully worked out trhat it will re quire as much feed for a cow to grow her calf as it will to produce 1000 lb of milk-that is, l 6000 lb cow needs one-sixth as much feed to develop her can...
HOW TO PIT POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 July 1914
HOW TO PIT POTATOES. Do not leave them too long in the ground, or they may start a seoond growth; on the other hand, see that they are quite ripe befote digging. The besat way to store them is by pitting. Spread a quantity of dry straw along the ground, two feet wide by whatever length may be necessary for the quan tity you have. Heap the tubers up on this triangular wise; cover com pletely with andther liyer of straw, then with clay or eafrth. - Never re move the covering until you are ready to use the potatoes. Start at one end and withdraw the daily. or weekly supply, covering the end up immediate ly you are finished. In this way you will not disturb'the whole pit but will gradually lessen it until all the tubers have been extracted.. Then you can dig the straw into the soil. -

JOBS FOR STORMY DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 July 1914
JOBS FOR STORMY DAYS. I have come to the'obnclusion that overy farmer should have a workshop of his own. A small building, 10 by 12 feet, in which he can keep a fire if necessary in winter, will answer the purpose. Here he cai n go and do a great deal of work that will savd time and money for him. He cain furnish it will tools and benches to suit, and a small kit of blacksmith tools would not be amiss.

GREEN MAIZE FOR MILKING - CATTLE. Green maize, if fed to milking cows beforo it shows the tassel, will do no injury, but it must be remembered thac me greatest amount of nutriment is 2ontaied in maize when the cob is burning from the milky into the-glaz ,ng stage.

AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 July 1914
AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. The Derbyshire Gritstone sheep is much. bigger in frame than the ordin ary hill black-faced race which is found farther north. It is reputed to be one of tile oldest in the British Isles, and although documentary evidence is not Os yiet forthcoming to prove this claiti, tradition suggests- thit from timno immemorial this sheep has existed where it is found to-day. The Dartmoor sheep is another of the numerous ovino tribes to which English farming owes much. Such a thing as a general purpose breed of sheep is an imipossibility, and it is to the iative races that farmers owe much of their prosperity, for they ad apt themselves withl a minimum loss to conditions to which other breeds are alien, One of tile best known herbs in or diniry pasture land is the dandelion, which is very partial to dry and sandy meadows. When the fruiting stage of this herb is reached, the scales which protect that portion of the plans bend back and allow the wind to spread the seed far and...

BEETROOT LEAVES AS FODDER. . The process of drying the loaves of the sugar beet crop is being 'gradually evolved in Germany on practlcal lines, and it is estimated that when the pro oas becomes general it will represent an economy of something liko £8,000,000 at present expended on other feeding stuffs.: According to experts, the value of the dried leaves is £3 to £3/10] a ton, without taking into consideration the residual value of manure. As a fod der the dried leavevs are eaten readily. by cattle, and are quite free from the drawbaoks arising freom the consump tion of large quantities of the leaves in a fresh state.

AMERICAN MEAT FAMINE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 July 1914
AMERICAN MEAT FAMINE. In regard to the possibility of a meat famine mn the United StAtes, the Gov ernment have.issued a special bullotin to tile farmers of tile country. It says --'"The high cost of meat is a sarious reality, and it is now obvious that the rise in prices in recent .years is the natural result of an actual shortage in produotion. Tile condition is refleoted n the per capita consumption of meat in the United States, which is estimat ed to have fallen off 101b in four years or from 162 lb in 1909 to 152 lb in tihe fiscal year 1913. It is evident that tile country is facing an era of short production of meat, and that some constructive means must be ad opted if the American appetite for this calss of food is to be supplied ". The bulletin points out that in the last six years the number of beef cattlhin thre country has apparently fallen off 30 per cent., while the population has in oreased.

STRENGTH OF EGG-SHELLS. Most people are aware of the power of egg-shells to resist external pressure on the ends, but. not mnany would credit the results of tests recently made.

S .SCOTCHED. '(By P: A. FOWLER.) We met suddenly at the garden gate. "Hello, Jerry l" said ltbRowena, "what a frightful hurry you're in i" l'drew her into the shadow of the wall. She had been treating me very flippantly for some time, and I felt that now was the opportunity to show her the danger of playing fast and loose with such a capture as myself. L'Hush!" I whispered warningly. "Are wa alone?" Rowena shaded her eyes and peered anxiously up and down the path. "It's all right," she said, with a sigi of relief. "1'hero's no one about ex cept McGregor, and he won't split." I looked doubtfuilly at the little A 6 erdeen terrier in cliharge of her. - "I don't know," I said, "I can't help thiiking you place too much confidence in McGregor. I mistrust him. To me he has all the.appearance of a tale bearer." "Copyright in thile U.S.A. I" ihe murmured admiringly. "But what's the mystery, Jerry?" "You must promise not -o screoam, Rowena.

POISON BOTTLE ALARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 July 1914
POISON BOTTLE ALARMS. Nusmberless lives have been lost or endangered by the careless one who picks up a bottle from his msedicise chest in the dark. This is being con stantly done, and measures should be take to prevent it. It has been sug gested that poisonous tablets be given a peculiar shape, different from tkie or dinary tablets. Another suggestion is that the bottle be provided with a numbcr of needle points [Okqtx-ziflff stopper fromts which a number of needle points project so that the stopper can not be removed in the dark without prickiag the lingers. Still another sug gestion is to provide the bottle with hells that will sound a warnhing when it is picked up. If some or all of thtase aeihods were adopted, no doubt they sould prevent many. deaths and msuch suffering, for the use of poisons scens to be daily increasing, and thus* also the liability to accidents.
