ABOUT LAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914

ABOUT LAUGHTER. Many women think—or they wish u> to believe they think—that it is vulgai to laugh. Do not believe it. All wo men should learn to laugh and should cultivate the practice or the habit, or whatever you like to call ti. I should not like to live with any woman, cou sin,, sister, friend or ever servant— who never laughed. Some mistresses would check their servant? if the) neard them laughing All this is either affectation or ab sardity. There is no better antidoii to the petty worries and little disngref ables of life than a good laugh. Be sides, it is a healthy, lung-developing exercise as well. The cultivation oi Humour does not necessarily onuse an) abatement of the dignity, modesty and charm of womanhood. It need not induce an unpleasant and constant fri volity such as is shown by smart speech and quick repartee. The humou; that looks at the world with a twinkle in the eye, and sees its absurdities, its Bmalluess, and its fun. should be s' part of every woman's tra...

ALLDAY. It proved indeed a shock to the many friends of Mr Samuel All day when they learned of his sudden and untimely demise at the residence of Miss Cartmell, Hargreaves-street, Bendigo, on Thursday evening. On the pre vious Monday he underwent an operation at the hands of Drs. Rockett and Smithwick for the removal of a carbuncle, and death ensued from heart failure. It is but a few short weeks ago that the late Mr Allday was transact ing business at the Quambatook office of Messrs. Thomas Morrow and Co., and after discussing the drought problem, remarked to Mr Muldoon (local agent) : "I won't return .until you send for me." But, alas, it was the Great Reaper who' sent ! Deceased, who was about 53 years of age, was one of the best known auc tioneers in northern Victoria, having commenced his career with the firm of L. McPherson and Co. in the early eighties. He was also connected with the firm of John Watson and Co., but of latter years he was best known throughout the length and ...

SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914

SPORTING NOTES. [By Rambler.] Uncle Sam won his second Caul field Cup on Saturday from Rath lea and St. Carwyne. With a 101b. penalty, Uncle Sam will have to carry 9at. 21 b. in the Melbourne Cup. While running near the front at the home turn in the Caulfield Cup, Anna Carlovna's leg gave way and she, naturally, rapidly dropped back, finishing among the rear diyision. It is unlikely she will race again. The mare was an equal favorite with St. Carwyne at 7 to 2, while the win ner's quotation was 9 to 2. At the Bendigo Show.on Thurs day Messrs Eroni Bros, won the high jump with Landlock, who cleared 7ft. lin. G. Freeman accounted for the second round of sweepstakes at clay pigeons with four hits out of eight shots. Messrs. M. Cough lin and Dan Gardiner tied with three-hits each, .and, in the shoot off the 'former triumphed. A sparrow match was arranged at Oakvale last Saturday, which proved interesting.

STACK ENSILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 22 October 1914

STACK ENSILAGE. Tlio fact that so many farmers asso ciate ensilage with a silo of some sort or another—either above or below ground —indicates that the idea is fairly pre valent that ensilage can only be made successfully in a silo. This is altoge ther a mistake. Whilst the silo has sev eral, advantages under certain circum stance^ and advisable when ensilage is made wholesale, so to speak, and out of coarse fodder crops such as maize, the stack system is undoubtedly the simp lest, cheapest, and most advantageous system for the average dairy farmer, more especially if he is a novice. The stack system is the cheapest; in the first place because it entails no more outlay than the building of an ordinary hay stack—not so much real ly because a rick cover is unnecessary. It is simplest because the construction of a proper sijo, is not an easy matter for the average farmer, but most farm ers can make a fair show at stack building when put to it. It is most ad vantageous because the stack...
