BUSH FIRE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 23 July 1914
BUSH FIRE. TO THE EDITOR OF THIE GUARDIAN. Sir,-I wish to draw your attention to a bush fire raging on the river be tween Burra station and Na.rrung, which is destroying a. great deal of valuable timber. This firel is caused by the carelessness of a man camping on the bank of the liver. He sets it go. ing and gets away-. Now that our Federal and States Parliaments are :ushing ahead with the Murray water scheme re locks, &e., we want all this timber handy for the works, and also for domestic purposes. The time under consideration by the engineers, &c., is 12 years. If these men are allowed to continue causing these fires on the river the time limited by the engineers will have to be extenlded. The trouble will be to go some miles off the river to cut timber. Thanking you kindly for past favors.--I am, &c., J?NMIY DUNN.

DON'TS." [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 23 July 1914
DON'TS." Don;t use the eyes when they are tired or weak from illness. Don't face the light when reading or sewing. Don't neglect to bathe the eyes before retiring, so as to remove any dust that may have .gathered on the lids during the day. Don't allow a cold, raw wind to strike the eyes. Don't try to get a cinder out of the eye by rubbing the injured orb; rub the other eye. Don't sleep too much or too little; too much sleep weakens the eyes, too litle. fa tigues them. Don't wear your hair always in the same style; a change of method is beneficial to the hair, and to let it fall losely about the shoulders is an excellent plan at times. Don't follow fashion blindly in re gard to coiffure if you would have ar tistic proportions and bring out the best, expressions of the face. Don't part the hair in the middle if you-are round-faced and chubby; this only emphasises the disc-like appearance. Don't get into the habit (quite an easy one to fall into) of frowning. It causes the face to bec...

Firstly, I wish to state that I did not 1keep a record orfthe free kicks, but after the termination of the match the enclosed list was handed me, and I have every reason. to b~elieve the record is true and correct, and I would much prefer to acccjt the wuird of my authority than "'ollowe , " I envy the position of no umpire, but such persons being paid ollicials are always open to fai?? comment, and if this point has been overstepped I regret it.

WOMEN'S TIDINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 23 July 1914
WOMEN'S TIDINESS. Women are certainly more accurate than men. Young girls are taught early in life that neatness in folding clothes and carefulness in putting away dolls and other toys are most necessary. Boys, on the other hand, are raely brought up on these lines; they are allowed to fling clothes and toys where they think fit, and their sisters are trained to pick up these -things and put them in their right plaices.

MAIZE FOR COLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 23 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 maize, 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] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 23 July 1914
F?OR THE FARMER: 'BRANDING CATTLE. The ~great a'ste of money. entailed by our present ?methods of branding cattle is a subject Wihich 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 ld. per pound more, and, as these hides Weigh from 60 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...
HIS EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 23 July 1914
HIS EXPLANATION. A retired army officer tells a good story of a jobbing gardener, who, whatever his faults, apparently lacks nothing in the way of aptitude for making excuses. "I'd had considerable trouble with my rough hands in the garden," says the army man, "but when this honest eyed specimen applied for the job of well-digging about ten rods of ground, I was taken by his appearance, and told him to come in the morning. "'Now I want you to take your time and dig it thoroughly, not merely scratch the surface,' I said. 'Never mind how long it takes, dig deeply.' And 'whilst I was standing by he car ried out my instructions admirably. "I left him at it quite certain that I would know if my orders were car ried out, for about six inches deep in the middle of the plot I had buried half a dozen clinkers each the size of a brick. "When I returned he was past the spot, but there was no' sign of the clinkers lying about. "'Lend me your spade a minute,' I said, and straightway unearthed th...
FOWL CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 23 July 1914
FOWL CHOLERA. This is one of the most dreaded diseases in the poultry world. It is caused by a germ and is highly con tagious. Once it has established it self-in a poultry yard, nothing but the most thorough treatment will pre vent the annihilation of the entire flock. Miedical treatment is of litle or no avail. The best thing to do is to kill all the sick birds at once, and to kill them in such a wiy as not to spread the infection with their blood, and to burn'their bodies. The remain ing fowls should then be divided into small lots of from three to five each, so that when a bird is attacked by the disease the entire flock will not be exposed to it. Watch each one of the small lots closely and remove every sick bird. Clean and disinfect everything thor oughly, including small pens contain ing non-infected fowls, with a carbolic acid solution made by mixing one pint of crude carbolic acid and ten quarts of water. All birds not killed should be given three teaspoonfuls of a half per ...
