WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 17 April 1914

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some thing. It usually costs a man something to listen to flattery. Life is not all night and conflict: morning breaks at last. Know your man before you let his opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the same thing as strength of character. To be conscious that you are ig norant is a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier than practising, but not half so ef fectual. Everything that thou reprovest in another, thou must most carefully avoid in thyself.—Cicero. A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in an hour. Many of. the things which worry us most are trifles when we come to examine them closely. To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.—Sterne. Nine-tenths of the people who fail in life do so because they have never appreciated the value of thorough ness. Only for the cheerful does the tree ol life b...

"BOSS" AMONG THE BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 17 April 1914

0 "BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. "Talk about your commanders," said Tommy Atkins, "Bobs is the boy for me. I found out what he was in Afghanistan. My company was dig ging trenches, and while finishing one the Afghans began firing, and the bul lets whistled close to our heads. "Well, there was a kid in the company that couldn't have been over 18. Never ought to have let him 'list. He was always growling and kicking, and at the first fire, down he went flat on his face, and laid there. Then along came 'Bobs,' cool and easy, and sees the kid. 'Hello, there!' ' says 'Bobs,' 'What's the matter, you fellow, dowii there? Get up and fight with your company.' 'No, 1 can't!' whines the kid. 'Can't,' says 'Bobs,' jumping down into the trench and .hauling the boy up. 'What's the mat ter with you that you can't? Are you hurt?' 'No, sir,' says he, 'I'm afraid of getting hit.' 'Well, you're a fine soldier!' says the general. Then he looked at the boyish face of the lad, and his face softened. 'I suppos...

A HORSELESS TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 17 April 1914

A HORSELESS TOWN. At the doors of Indianapolis there is to be the first truly horseless city in America, and—save, perhaps, for those places where oxen,, goats, cam els, or what not else furnish native and locomotive power—the first horse less city of the world. The actual construction work is well uuder way, and in two or three years there will be a complete town. The horse that tries to enter, says the "Motor," will be turned back as sternly as motorists used to be from the strip on the Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn. The man with the motor car may enter free as air. It is planned to make this city, which is named Speedway, an indus trial city devoted to the interests of the motor-car trade. • An old Scotch lady was noticed by ber minister to fall asleep every time he preached, whilst when young men from St. Andrew's University acted as substitutes lor him she remained awake and was most attentive. The minister one day demanded an explanation of her conduct, and she replied:— "Weel, me...

PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 17 April 1914

PRISON MASTERPIECES. Byron's famous poem, "The Prison er of Chillon," is supposed to be writ ten by Bonnivard, the Genevan pa triot, whilst he was incarcerated in the Chateau of Chillon, on the shores of the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst Evron was imprisoned by inclement weather for a night and a day in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, some notable literary achievements have been really writ ten in gaol, undoubtedly the most out standing being two of the world's greatest classics, "The Adventures of Don Quixote" and "The Pilgrim's Pro gress." If only those two books had belonged to the literature of captivity they would have been sufficient to males that literature distinguished and immortal, Thomas Cooper, tha Chartist, whose life reads like a romance, and whose name is held in reverence by modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying in prison on ac count of his political agitation. This poem bears the remarkable title of "The Purg...

Leila and Her Lover. By MAX pemberton. published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., London and Melb. III. It was almost dusk when the}' re turned to the Castle, so altruistic had been their motives of delay. Lights shone from ail the '.pper windows of th.it venerable pile. Footmen in the hails below walked with the measured step of those who have found an oc cupation again after many days. Leila had begged that she might retire to her own cell during these uours of prescribed carnival, but he it-wild not hear of it. ••You owe me that much," he said. "You must save me from the tigers." She made no answer, and they en- : tered the xicai hail together. There ivcre gue:;is already arrived—and a bruit of events which was ominous. She had not seen Desdy since lunch, and was pleased enough to hear his voice as she wen: up the great stair case from ihe garden.

II. The journey was dark and labori ous, as though material things were themselves conscious of fatigue. They rolled from station to station to the accompaniment of hissing Bteara and tired voices. There was no moon, hut the northern lights shimmered upon ilie sleeping fields and discovered an horizon for a placid sea. Desdy was much comforted that Hugh should come with them, and he got into the carriage maufullj' and sat down with an air of authority good to Bee. The excitement had waked Him thor oughly, and he asked them many an embarrassing question. Had "the man" come iback?

"You are going to Edinburgh, Desdy —to-morrow I will show you the shops and we will 'buy something good—you must not think of it now, old chap; you must try to sleep."

RETAILING SOIL MOISTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 17 April 1914

HETA1LTNG SOIL MOISTURE. No factor in plant growth, so far as Australian conditions arc conccrncd, is or moro importance than an adequate supply of moisture. The importance of moisture has been recogniscd for a long time. Some of the earlier writers oa agriculture wi-nt so far as to -say thai nothing else was required. Mo le.>s talui 300 to 500 lbs. of water pass through a growing plant to prodme one pound of dry matter. .Most of this >s given off in evaporation, the surface of the leaf system. To produce a two ton crop of hay per acre, water equivalent to 11 inches of rainfall is evaporated from its steins and leaves. Tlie~ first important step in the conservation of soil moisture was the adoption of bore fallowing. Its main object was to pre vent loss by evaporation from the soil, by maintaining a loose layer oil th-- sur face. Water cannot rise by capillarity through loose soil, but in land allowed to "set" water rises freely to the sur face from the subsoil and is lost in ...
