OPENING A QUARRY. FINALITY REACHED. Mosquito Creek Site Adopted. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

OPENING A QUARRY. FINALITY REACHED. Mosquito Creek Site Adopted. After the stock registration busi ness had reached finality ; Council lors, Press, officers and several townspeople drove out to inspect the proposed quarry at Mosquito'Creek, situated about three miles from Tra falgar, The inspection convinced the majority of Councillors that sufficient stone existed in the locality to metal all the roads in the shire and'adjoin-:' ing shires as well. In view of the-' fact-that-th&'Miin Roads' Board is vapidly pushing along with road con struction 'in this Bhire, the acquire ment of a convenient quarry site is one of the rjtmost importance to the shire both fi'orri the standpoint of economy and 'uture utility. It is gratifying to know that after ginger ly handling this question' for years pa9t, the Council has at last awaken- J ed .to the vital importance of settling the question for all time and are now taking s'.eps to acquire all Cut-' ore metal requirements locally.

SUGAR OF MILK. A New Industry in New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

SUGAR OF MILK. I ! A New Industry in New^Zealand. Many -years ago the first cheese fac tory in New Zealand was opened at Edendale, and 'quite recently there has been erected at Edendale another large factory, where at the opening of next season's dairying, th« manufac ture of sugar of-milk will be com menced. It is fitting -that the new factory, should be beside the Juildiig where the first public cheese factory was established that demonstrated so handsomely that there was "sugar in milk," and there is every reason to think that the promoters of the latest industry in connection with dairying will reap the same golden return. It is-not quite a year since the idea of establishing the sugar of milk factory took definite shape, but when the pro ject was fully explained, those who understood a good proposition were not slow to recognise in the new /en-, ture an industry that gave every in dication of success. It war mainly due to the efforts of two Dunedin gentlemen, Messrs. Neill and ...

THE FARM TEA. A Few Practical Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

THE FARM TEA*, j A Few Practical Notes. By Ploughboy. We are continually hearing that men to! work the teams are hard to procure. No doubt that is so. Farm hands nowadays prefer casual and rouseabout work to a settled job like that of driving a team. The plough man's job is one that requires very constant attention and work, where as the man who takes on fencing, gorse-work, or any odd job about a place can get a day off now and again without throwing things out of gear to any great extent. Then the plough man's hours are long. He has to be up early in the morning, while the fencer or gorse-cutter may be in bed till the word for. breakfast is sound ed. At night he has to feed and bover after five or six o'clock, and then after tea he has to be on hand to turn his team out, or to get. some _ one to do it for him. The rouseabout —provided he is not the cowboy—may go straight in from his work, and is " not bbther^d with anything till next morning comes. Still, I think a teamster's joh ...

CROSSING JERSEYS AND HOLSTEINS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

CROSSING JERSEYS AND HOLSTEINS. When a cross is made between two different breeds, there is the bring ing together of forces whioh in many cases are more or less antagonistic; that is, the animals have been bre.i in different ways although perform ing the same function. The Jersey is quite a different animal from the Hol stein. It is smaller in size, raised in a country entirely different, and has certain characteristics quite different from the Holstein. The Jersey pro duced milk that tests in the neigh borhood of 5 per cent., while the Hol stein produces milk testing about 3% per cent. The Jersey gives less milk than the Holstein, but it is richer in total solids. It has been a fanciful dream of some that the breeding of the Hol stein and Jersey together would pro duce an animal that would give a large flow of milk containing the high percentage of fat of the Jersey. In crossing these breeds this happy im agination has never materialised. Some good animals have been pro duced by c...

CLIPPING UDDERS AN AID TO CLEANLINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

CLIPPING UDDERS AN AID TO CLEANLINESS. Advising that the pdders of dairy cows should be clipped, Mr. H. E. Dvoracliek, of the Colorado Agricul tural college, '"writes as follows:— "It is not uncommon among dairy cows to find the udder covered with a dense growth of long hairs, 'which, although they may be of some protec tion to the udder, nevertheless, from the standpoint of sanitation and com fort to the cow during milking are a detriment. Under ordinary farm con ditions they are , generally covered | with filth, and even iu the best-kept ; dairies, unless clipped, collect some j dust and filth. Furthermore, because • of their location, it is highly probable ! that some of them will find their way j into the milk-pail during milking. In ; order that such conditions may not i occur, these hairs should be slipped ! close once or twice each year, there j by preventing collection of filth and | permitting greater ease in washing i the udder. j "It has been my experience, that 'kickers'...

PIGS FOR NEW COUNTRIES. British Types to Choose From. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

PIGS FOR NEW COUNTRIES. British Types to Choose From. There is no foundation stock' for sue- ' cessful pig-raising (writes Mr. G. T. 1 Burrows) like the well-defined breeds of Great Britain which, in their own way, are built to suit both the taste of any neighborhood and the pocket of the farmer who is stepping out o? the rut of the grade breeder to a full fledged pedigree stock-keeper. Told tersely, the varieties of British pigs can be counted upon one hand, but their values are unrealisable. A par ticular pet of the North of England farmer is the Large White, which, ori ginally bred in Yorkshire, is the larg est British white breed. It has a rather long white coat on a white skin, which occasionally shows a few blue spot's. The head is moderately long, snout broad, face slightly dished and 1 wide between the ears, and jowl not too heavy. The tail is set high, hang ing perpendicularly, 'long and stout, with a tassel of fine hair. Its chief characteristics are a strong constitu tion...

ANTIQUITY OF AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 2 October 1914

antiquity of agriculture. When our ancestors were untutored I savages agriculture in China was at an advanced stage. The knowledge of agriculture possessed by the ancient Chinese seems at this distance of time almost incredible. The popular bal lads of China, three thousand years old, selected from the writings of Con fucias, contain many stories and poems on the agriculture of that time. Some of these have been translated from Chinese into English by the Rev. W. Jennings, M.A. Here is a Chinese song of "harvest home" three thousand years old: Clear the witch-grass, clear the scrub: Ploughs the soddened soil shall grub; Thousand couples weed the ground, Crossing swampy field and bound; There the master, there the son, Younger sons—aye, every one. Strong men here, assistants there, Hear them o'er their (midday) fare. Husbands eye their wives with pride, Wives cling to their husbands' side. Now the sharpened shears are in— On south acres they begin. "Sown is grain of every kind. Livin...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

III. There was quite a record crowd in the drawing-room for Mme. Berring er's recital. She had kept to her room ever since her arrival, and nobody greatly wondered at this, for seeing that a large proportion of her prospec tive audience were not on the planet when she was an' operatic star of the first magnitude, it was generally con ceded that she must be very old and frail. Indeed, Morley Paget had creat ed roars of laughter among his fellow guests by describing, in his best comic style, her arrival on the scene, and had poked endless fun at her knight at-arms,. Garfield. So the audience was fairly well prepared for the apparition. Even so, an ill-suppressed titter went round the great drawing-room as Mme. Derringer came through the* door be hind the platform and stood among the palins and flowers, bow.ing and curtsy ing. But she could play. Oh, yes; when she removed lier gldves her white hands moved very sweetly over the' keys. Garfield and Paget sat right oppo site the player, a...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

II. If a thunderbolt had fallen at the feet of the two young men, Morley Pa,j et and Sidney Garlield, they could not have been more surprised, although, probably, they would have been more hurt. "Gone!" they exclaimed, in a duet of consternation. "When?" "Before breakfast this morning. A sudden call. She wished me to say •good-bye' to you and to all other, in quiring friends." The secretary turned to attend to the telephone, which was going off like an alarm-clock doing a spurt against time, and the two men turned away in opposite directions. Gone! Miss Joan Sinclair gone! But was she returniifg? Both men turned back surreptitiously and separately to ask this question. But the secretary could give no information on the sub ject. She could only recall precedents. She had never known Miss Sinclair to return under three or four months. Her father and brother needed her, doubtless, at home. Her address? Oh, Mr. Paget had borrowed a tennis-racket, had he, and wished to return it? Ah, Mr....

HELPING THE EMPIRE. What to Grow for the Army. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

HELPING THE EMPIRE. What to Grow for the Army. The farmer can do more than look on while our brothers are fighting (writes A.G.S. in an interesting arti cle). There will be some products in eager demand, and others slumped. As one who is not an expert in these matters, but more of an onlooker, I think it would be a fine thing if the military authorities, in conjunction with some of the best commercial ex perts, were to announce to us what agricultural products, in their opin ion, will be badly wanted while the conflict lasts. .This is a time of year when we can in many ways adapt our operations to suit the coming needs. A Cry for Wool. To begin with, there will be a tre mendous call for wool. The millions of troops in the field will be wearing woollen clothing, and, while the pro viding of their lirst equipment will empty the world's mills of all avail able wool fabrics, there will be a con tinual, and perhaps feverish deman 1 for more wool to repair the wear, tear and renewals: Thi...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

.LADIES' LETTER. The home-coming of a youthful bride and bridegroom was nearly rob bed, of its charm by one of those trivial accidents which seem almost tragic at the time and sound merely funny later on when one tells it to their friends. The pair, having elect ed to go to their new abode on the return .from the honeymoon arrived on the doorstep shortly before ^mid night. The master of the house, doubtless overcome with the import ance of his new position as a house holder, drove the latchkey in the door with such grim determination that the wretched thing bent and re fused, to do its duty. All attempts to turn "it failing, the husband tried U ■bend the refractory metal into shape between two coins by the dim and ever-disappearing light of matches which his wife struck at intervals. Just as he was nearing the end of his patience and the matches and the two were wondering which window would be the cheapest to replace, the bent end of the key obligingly yield ed to the pressure of ha...

The Times. FRIDAY, OCT. 9th. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

FRIL»A.Y, OCT. 9tb. •St, Leon's Circus drew a big uttendance in Trafalgar on Tuesday night lasfc, and the performance thoroughly delighted them. From start to finish, acts of a highly sensational character followed one another in yuick succession. Miss Marie Sole, in her performance on the thin wire rope, causod much amazemont by her dar ing acts. But she reached the climax and won a thunderous round of applause when she jumped over a chair and land ing again on the wire, retained her bal ance. Madam Garcia, in her wonderful and decidedly sensational motor car actr produced a death-like stillness in the aud ionee, which only breathed freoly again, when they saw her uninjured and smiling, being assisted from the ear. The St Leon's in their various acrobatic feats proved their exceptional cleverness, while Honey and Chcrrv, the triple horizontal b*)' artists, were dexterious and soon on terms of favoritism with those present. Senorata Phillipino was another strong feature in the Compa...

KAISER AND KRUPP'S. SAID TO BE A PARTNER. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 9 October 1914

KAISER AND KRUPP'S. SAID TO BE A PARTNER. With its collieries, its iron mines, and its steel factories, its workshops of Essen and Magdeburg, its naval dockyards of Kiel with their 5000 .en gineers, CO,000 workmen; and the 250,000 persons who owe their live lihood to it, the fitm of Krupp repre sents the most powerful and complete achievement of modern industry in the service of the genius of destruc tion. Instead of great banks—which, by the way, have saved it more than once from disaster—it boasts a sleep ing partner and protector whose im portance no one will dispute, since he is no other than the Emperor of Germany, his Majesty William II. Iiow does it happen that the head of the most powerful military nation of.the world should at the same time be a shareholder in the largest gun fac tory? It happened in 1867. BiSmarck, having defeated the Austrians at S'o dowa, thought of making war on France. For that he needed a formid able artillery, and Krupp only could supply it. Unfortun...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, .Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XXV. The Danger Zone. Almost before the thing was done Herepath regretted it. He would re£arded such an act as incred ible folly on the part of anybody else. It he were caught with, those stones in his possession there could only be one end to the adventure. Assured ly he would be arrested as either the thief or an accomplice. Had he been lured here for the very purpose of being duped? Had he been deliberately marked down for a cats paw? These questions raced through his mind rapidly. After all was said and done, he knew very little of Nin on Desterre. She was beautiful and fascinating, and apparently ricb. She was a prime favorite in the most ex clusive circles, but Herepath had never heard anything of her family or of her relations. She seemed to read these croubled reflections as they flashed upon . Herepath. But she was not in t...

CHAPTER XXVI. The Family Pictures. "The admittance would be just as well perhaps," Herepath said a trifle coldly. "My dear boy,. you have just been watching a little comedy of the most, brilliant type. It is rather unfortun-, that you are not in the mood tp ap preciate it. Now, by my cleverness, backed by tbq ■ natural astuteness of the Count, I-have averted a great scandal—and incidentally saved that excellent-Gillispie from a severe wig ging.

"L'audace, l'audace et toujours l'audace," Ninon, quoted mockingly. "My word, your eyes are not so hope less if you could follow all that. But that is another side of the question which we will discuss in due season. In the meantime, please do npt run away with the idea that because the blue diamond is not mine therefore it belongs to the Princess. ...
