MAKING FARMING PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 April 1914
MAKING FARMING PAY. We are all trying to make things pay, but we refuse to. invest enough brains in the study of things so that we can make them pay. Farming everywhere, and in everything, is a deep question, one o fthe profound est. It requires a lot of thought, study and good judgment to make it pay. Some msust have an immediate profit, and so they skin the land. Oth ers try to save expense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save ex pense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save expense in secur ing good breeding stock, and so pro duc cows theat do not giv the most profitable 'result. Others refuse to feed a good cow sufficiently to enable her to produce to her fullest capacity. All about us is this ever-present ques tion of making things pay, and saving useless, not useful, expense. Surely there is.neded a lot of wit and wisdom on the farm.

The Unknown Quantity. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 April 1914
The Unknown Quantity. "I'll bet she will," began the rash youth. "Don't!" interrupted his older and: wiser companion. "'Don't bet that she will ever do anything. You can never tell what a woman will do." "But," protested the young man, "I was going to bet that she would do the unexpected." "Don't," repeated the elder earnest ly "Even that is no safe bet." The Commissioners of the State Savings Bank of Victoria are inviting applications, until 30th April next, for their four per cent. debentures or dc benture stock. .These are being sold to the public at £99 10/- per £100, and may, be obtained at Head Office, Elizabeth-street, or any of the branch es.

Patience is a Virtue. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 April 1914
Patience is a Virtue. If patience is really a virtue there ix'a young man in the south-eastern suburbs who ought to wear a full-size halo. Last Thursday night he stood at a. street corner and referred to his watch which registered seven o'clock. Just then a girl with a small Covent C-ar den on her hat approached. "What a time you have kept me waiting, Maud," said the youth. The girl tossed her head. "It's only just s-even," she said, "and I didn't promise to be here till half-past six." The young man smiled. -"Yes," -he said, "but you've mistaken the day. I've been waiting since last night!" Ordered to the Front. Mr. John Hassall, whose good stor ies are famous, tells of a retired Army officer wlo was in his back garden one day when a tramp came around the end of the house. "I've been at the front," he began, "and --" / The old officer beamed on him as he interrupted to ask: "Have you, my man? And were you wounded?" "No," said the man, "no, sir: not exactly. But I couldn't make no o...
COMMON-SENSE AND COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 April 1914
COMMON-SENSE AND COWS. Some especially cheerful idiot has i lately proposed that ih order to in. sure-a larger supply of beef, and cheaper prices for steaks and roasts, it should be enacted that no calves may be killed for veal. Not a little commendation has been extended to this idea; as if the Government can properly regulate such a thing by law! It would be just the same to - try to increase the supply of eggs by de creeing that nobody should kill a chicken. Suppose it worked, and the price of eggs came down the price of poultry would go up corresponding ly, and there would probably be more economic loss than gain.. Bossy doesn't get a fair 'share in the current discussion of her failure to maintain the national meat sup ply. In the first place, she is under the necessity of furnishing milk to the increasing population of cities a.nd towns. A cow that is meat can not also be milk; in fact, a cow that is bred and designed for meat is without much value for milk. They have recently...
PEN-POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 April 1914
PEN-POINTS. None are so blind as those who can not see. It takes a good deal of philosophy to take things as they come, but it requires more to part with things.as they go. All women are two-faced---before preparing their toilettes and after. Truths wvhih have to be whispered are usually false. Heights, whether physical or men tal, usually induce dizziness. The Austin Hospital for Incurables, the one institution in the State which undertakes the careful tending and thq tender relieving of the most piti able cases of physical human suffer ing which can possibly be conceived. What that endurance must be is not possibly known to the outsider. There are bald facts that cover a world of" hidden meaning. Sooner or later the strain becomes too much for those who -work in the hospital, and a 'breakdown comes. The nerves go; no woman can stand for very long the sight of the ghastly torture of the cancer wards, and the utter hopeless ness of the fight where pain and death must inevitably be v...

Pity the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 April 1914
Pity the Editor. - "What's the matter?" inquired the foreman as he entered the sanctum for copy, and noted the editor's swol len forehead, puffed red eye and tat tered, dusty coat. "Did you fall down stairs?" "No--.only that," replied the editor, pointing with his finger to a para graph in the, paper before him. "It's in our account of the Crapley-Smith wedding. It ought to read: 'Miss Smith's dimpled, shining face formed a pleasing contrast to Mr. Crapley's strong, bold physiognomy.' But see 'how it was printed." And. the foreman read: "Miss Smith's pimpled, skinny face formed a pleasing contrast to Mr. Crapley's strange, bald physiognomy." "Crapley was in here juste now," ' conoluded the editor sadly.
