Glenelg and Wannon Valleys [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914
Glenelg and Wannon Valleys j (By W. P. Little, Casterton). Within the past three or four years there has been great expansion of the producing industries in the far west ern. part of Victoria, of which Caster ton is the principal trading centre. The main contributing factor in this expansion has been, of course, the subdivision of estates into dairy and cultivation farms which has been car ried out by the Government in the case of Duiicobin, and by many pri vate owners, such as Mrs. Hudson, Wentworth Koosh; Miss Henty, "Merino Downs"; Mrs. Ann MacLeod, "Taiisker"; Messrs. McDonald Bros., "Bella Vista," and others—where the use of the land for dairying and culti vation has found profitable employ ment for from 800 to 1000 men, wo men and children, as against the very small number of hands px-eviously en gaged in looking after the cattle and sheep grazed on these lands. The most notable subdivision was, of course, that of Dunrobin, where the settlement is now occupied by about GO fami...
THE INFLUENCE OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914
THE INFLUENCE OF CHILDREN. The motives to exertion furnished by the possession of a family of chil dren are us powerful as ever movied heart or hand. The secret of many a struggle and triumph in life's battle may 'be found at home, in the shape of an infant in its mother's lap. The man who has children dependent on him will—must—struggle manfully, and bear up against the most adverse circumstances. The thought that the joy of their innocent young lives de pends upon his courage, his persever ance, his energy—this thought will enable him to work wonders, to achieve what will appear impossibili ties to the man who has only his own selfish needs, his own selfish ambi tion, to urge him on.
STOCKTAKING. Valuation of Stock and Plant. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914
STOCKTAKING. Valuation, of Stock and Plant. If you ask a farmer, stockbreeder, or man engaged in other rural .ndus tries, whether he has an annual stock taking as is the case in all commer- l cial undertakings, perhaps not one in a hundred will answer in the af firmative. The nearest approach to it is done by the sheepbreeder, and in a less degree by owners of horses, cattle, pigs, poultry, etc. Ew.n the financial institutions who oia iarge properties do not do it in as thorough a manner as, for instance, the large drapery establishments in a city. Yet a complete system of bookkeeping is as necessary with one as with the other, if a man wants to know the ' exact state of his financial position. Many a man has landed himself into financial difficulties through not hav ing kept a proper account of his in comings and. outgoings. It is a mistake to think that the man on the land is less liable to fin ancial losses by defaulting creditors than the city njan. He gets hit just as hard and ...
UNIFORMITY OF TYPE. Some Suggestions for Its Attainment. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914
UNIFORMITY OF TYPE. Some Suggestions for Its Attainment. One of the greatest advantages of raising pure-bred stock is, or should be, the resultant uniformity of type, size and production exhibiced by the (lock or herd in the course o: a few years (writes R.O.B.). Since all the individuals are of simi'ar size, pro ductiveness, habits, constitution, and appetites, the general care and man agement are very much simplified. Considering this, it is remarkable that a great many of our herds can only be classed as a miscellaneous collection of pure-breds, representing various types more or k«»s useful; the whole presenting a .weird 2->i: gioineration. Perhaps halr'-a-dozen in dividuals are of outstanding merit, and the balance "tails oft" to some thing far below mediocrity. The cause of this is usually to be traced to poor judgment in selecting the foundation stock when the herd was being got together. A number ol females are purchased, possibly because the purchaser relied top much on ...
The Bishop's Retort. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914
The Bishop's Retort. ■A certain worthy bishop was fond of a quiet smoke, and he did not think that the habit was out of keep ing with his high office. The arch deacon of the diocese, however, thought differently, and did not hesi tate to proclaim his opinion. .Oji one occasion the archdeacon was the guest of the bishop, and preached at the cathedral evening service. Hav ing returned to the episcopal palace, he was gazing from the library win dow, when he detected the bishop walking in the garden below, and smdking a cigar, as he thought, in safe privacy. "Ah, Bishop," said the archdeacon, as he opened the window, "so I have caught you burning incense to the devil." "Perhaps you have," retorted the bishop; "but I didn't know he was so near." The man who is in love with him self is in danger of making a mesal liance.
GIPPSLAND AND ITS PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914
| GIPPSLAND AND ITS PROSPECTS. It would be idle to assert that at the moment of writing the prospectt of this favored province of Victoria are particularly bright; indeed, that could be scarcely said of any portion of Victoria. On the other hand, there is not the slightest cause for assum ing that there is about to ensue a sea son of stress, for the resources of the district are undeniably great, and matters, even taking recent events which may affect the markets into consideration, are very much better than they were during the first few months of the year. The copious rains of July have had a most beneficial ef fect upon both agricultural and pas toral matters, the crops are forward, and a supply of grass for our own re quirements is assured. One of the most pleasing signs of prosperity is to be found in noting the vast increase in the sheep-growing in dustry. Time was when sheep were almost anathema throughout the length and breadth of Gippsland; but now the sheep may be counted ...
CHAPTER XXIV. Volunteer or Pressed Man? [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914
HHAPTER XXIV. Volunteer or Pressed Man? A stream of men and women in evening dress was pouring into the great pink and gold dining-room. It was "the" place to dine at in London | just then, the last word in luxury— until some new capitalist should come i along with something still more sin fully extravagant. 1 Herepath's lips curled scornfully as he saw the flashing jewels, the expen sive dresses, and the fleet of gleaming cars that came purring gently up to j the pavement. What these people [ wasted in a year would keep a hun dred families in comfort and happi | ness. There was not one of them who would have lent him a sovereign to protect him from starvation, and j , yet he had something hidden in the back of his mind that would have meant a fortune to half of them. Yet perhaps the show of gaiety was not all as easy and "devoid of care as it appeared. For instance, he did not fook like poverty himself with his Bond-street cut dress clothes, his im maculate linen and polished shoes...
EARNING CAPACITY OF DAIRY HERDS. Two Eloquent Examples. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914
EARNING CAPACITY OF DAIRY HERDS. Two Eloquent Examples. To show how the earning^capacity of different herds works out in actual practice, without taking extreme cuses, an experienced dairy farmer refers to the records of two herds 01 40 cows. The first herd produced an average of 2671b. of butter-fat, and tuu lower herd gave only 1541b. of butter fat. The first herd returned a profit of £5 17/- per cow, and the second herd showed a profit of only 4/- per cow. The second herd would have to b milked for nearly 30 years to pro duce as much profit as the better herd produced in one year; or 1200 cows of their capacity would produce only as much as the 40 good cows in one year. It may also be mentioned that 40 good cows cost £300 for feed and labor for one year. The other herd would require to have £9000 expend ed upon them to produce the same am ount of profit. And yet there are some people who say there is nothing gained by testing their cows. Others make the excuse that they have not ...
PRODUCTION OF COWS. The Most Important Question. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914
I I PRODUCTION OF COWS. The Most Important Question. Every individual cow has a maxi mum point of production at which dae can be kept by proper feed and pro per conditions, and unless a cow is at, or nearly at, this point, she aa:I her owner are not working together for their mutual advantage as they should work together. If the cow's natural maximum of production is high,- it is the owner's fault if she is not supplied • with proper foods and conditions to keep her working in tfrc immediate neighborhood of that high production of which she is capable; and if her maximum of production is low, then no feed and no conditions will make her a paying proposition, and the quicker the owner is rid of her the better. There are few farms on which there are not from 10 to 75 per cent, of cows that are absolutely making no profit whatever, and many that are a distinct loss co their own ers. The only profitable course to take where the herd does not yield a fair profit is to find out whether th...

Registration of Cattle. System to Remain. Fee Increased [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914
Registration of Cattle. System to Remain. Fee Increased The question of registering cattle for grazing on the shire roads wa9 discussed at a special meeting ot the barracan Shire Council on Monday last. Cr Branigan, president of the shire, presiding. At the last Council meeting, a deputation of Trafalgar townspeople asked for the abolition of the custom, owing to the damage done to private property by stock being permitted to wander in the streets. Varied opin ions have been expressed as to whet her the custom is a good or bad one, and at the special meeting a requisi tion signed by a number of towns people was presented asking that it be allowed to remain. Cr McGregor spoke at length on the evils attached to cattle registra tion. Not only in the townships but in all parts of the shire annoyance and damage was inflicted upon far mers and ethers by the wandering cattle nuisance. It was time some thing was done. He favored the abolition of registration altogether and moved : — "That t...

THORPDALE SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914
THORPDALE SOUTH. From Our Own Correspondent As threatened, the Railway Stand ing Committee visited the -district last week for the purpose of again insppcting the route of the proposed Thorpdale extension. They also took evid-nce at the Tarwin Bridge, Hallston and M'rboo. It was really a red tape visit as the district was visited last year and exactly the same class of evidence collected. It is quite nice to see such a distin guished committee in the district, but if they come on another red tape visit next year, we may say things that are not quite nice and we can not be expected to give a guarantee that they will not be treated as the Kaiser should be—I really mean that we will certainly let them see that we do not like ib. Mr iMackey ac companied the committee and ex plained to the writer that we would hear news probably in a fortnight's time concerning the prospects of the line. Some pessimists consider the prospects are hopeless, owing to the heavy estimated cost. The fact that...
