SEED WHEAT FOR FARMERS [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 16 October 1914
SEED WHEAT FOfj FARMERS Mr Fred Hagel thorn, Minister for Public Works, thinks that it is better tor the State to purchase seed wheat direct for struggling' farmers for next season than to issue certificates auth« orisiag each settler to be given an advance to buy on his own. acjount A leading country member of the Legislative Assembly said today that he feared that there would be dia» satisfaction if the quality was not in all cases all that it should be, and h* expressed the view that the practice adopted by the Irvine Ministry in i902-3 of issuing certificates author* ising purchase by those requiring the seed would be the more desirable course* Defending the decision ar rived at by the Government, Mr Hag elthorn said that the circumstancas were quite different now from whafc they were in 1902-3 It was advisable to obviate double haulage, ana it seemed to him that the departmental experts would bay as judiciously as farmers would Busily engaged in the refrigerating1 chamber of th...

CHAPTER VI. DUGDALE DINES WITH THE FAIRY QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 16 October 1914
CHAPTER VI. DUGDALE DINES WITH THE FAIRY QUEEN.' As yet Dugdale was not conscious of having dons anything extraordin ary, unless his boldness in' theface of the autocrat might be looked up on in that light. He had carried his point. The general called him a fool, and per haps time might prove him to be 6uch, but just at present he felt like rejoicing- over the fact that he had gained the privilege of seeing this bright little lady of the proscription as often as he pleased, and even sharing her journey out of the country. ' What would she say? He winced a . little under the fear lest she might ; think him bold to thus force his i company on her unasked. i, .was settled in the belief_ that | she could not , betheT "Vera" Orlqff ' of I whom so many startling stories had . gone the rounds of the continental j press, and was more than puzzled to ? understand why so bluff and truthful a "soldier as General Gratschefi could . defile his lips with a deliberate lie in order to deceive him -...

THE DAIRY PASTEURISED MILK CHEESE. | | EXTRA COSTS OVER ORDINARY METHOD AS COMPUTED IN WIS I CONSIN BULLETIN. | (Ninth instalment of Research Bulle tin 27, Wisconsin Experimental Sta tion, describing New Process of ? Manufacture pf Cheddar Cheese from Pasteurised Milk.) The extra cost of making pasteuri sed milk cheese is given in the fol lowing figures, which are estimated for an outfit handling 2000 lb. of milk p«r hour and operated one hour per day. It is, of course, true that the charges against one pound would be reduced if the capacity of the out fit'or the daily time of operating it were> increased. The figures are re garded as expressing the maximum extra costs of making cheese by the new method, as compared with the old. The additional outfit required for making cheese by the new process, consists of a receiving vat, a pasteu riser and cooler, and an acidulator. which latter can he home-made. It is assumed that the boiler and pump in the factory are large enough to furni...
Hoodlumism [TO THE EDITOR] [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 16 October 1914
Hoodlumism, [To THE EDITOR] Sir-Every community has its quota of hoodlums. They are like the poor, always with us. No dis respect meaDt for the poor. It is not a crime, especially in this season, to be poor, but most hoodlums are oiJy one remove from criminals. They are too cunning to get within reach of the law. Their chief object is to ridicule those who are not hoodlums, and to satisfy their selfishness. Nati muk ha3 its fall share of this disea sed portion of humanity. A. while ago it had the orange hoodlum,.then the turnip hoodlum, aad always the post office, shop recess, and Mechans ic3' Hall hoodlum. His tongue is al ways foul^his wit and repartee being always on filthy lines He goes to a Sunday sacred c3ucert, and atterwards makes a urinal of the post office por tico. He sneaks into shop recesses, and passes rinsslting remarks under cover of darkness. He steals oranges while the owner of the gardeu-is at at church, and raids turnip patches on his hands and knees. He never fi...
THE FARM. THE VALUE AND IMPORTANCE OF LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 16 October 1914
THE FARM. THE VALUE AND IMPORTANCE OF LUCERNE. ( One ton of lucerne bar has j same feeding value as 60 bushels of oats. Lucerne can be expected to average at least two tons per acre. This is the equivalent of 120 bushels of oats. There is no land that will i average 120 bushels of oats-in fact, ! it takes good land and good hand ling to average 60 bushels of oats j per acre. The lucerne requires less ' work attd less expense to handle than ' a grain crop. And the lucerne will improve the s'oil while the oat crop (will reduce its productive power. To get this value from lucerne it must i be fed on tlie farm. It needs to be kept in mind that the lucerne is a roughage. The securing of a stand of lucerne requires that the conditions neces sary to the lucerne be supplied. These are : Organic matter in soil, best supplied by manure ; good dee^ Compact seed bed, best furnished when land is manured ; ploughed deep for corn and the corn clean cultiva ted. :; Lucerne needs bacteria. If these ...

MINIMAY NOTES [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 16 October 1914
MINIMAY NOTES (tTrom Onr Own Correspondent) Daring the Jasfc week or so the most optimistic seem to be less hope ful that the drought will not be disas trous to this part of the State, which has held out so well up to the pre sent. Rain in a substantial quantity is needed now, or at least within the nest week, failing this, it is doubtful whether a later fall would be of any benefit to the grass, and crops would also probably r.ot have much chance of improving. Should tbe weather continue as it is at present, this sea son's harvest will be a meagre one indeed. Some crops will be long enough to cut for hay, while others may grow sufficiently to allow of their being stripped, that iB, if the heads fill with grain, which is doubtful The scarcity of water is causing great anxiety, as many are already carting it long distances for stock; A num ber of bores have been put down around here and more will shortly be executed, Those already down are proving to be a great boon, inasmuch as they...
CHAPTER V. THE BEAR GROWLS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 16 October 1914
CHAPTER V. . THE BEAR GROWLS. "Now that you know who the lady is, monsieur, of course you recognise the danger of continuing an ac quaintance begun under such roman tic conditions ?" continued tshe gene ral, in his ordinary icy tone, -while his teeth came together with a araap that reminded Owen of the closing jaws of a rat-trap. "Do you mean to my peace of mind or in a political sense ?" he asked. "I have nothing to do with your peace of mind, monsieur ; but it is of importance to me to make sure that the lady I am sent to watch does not find friends this side of the border.. Once aaross, pouf ! I wash my hands of the whole business." "Then I am to understand from this, general, that you wish me to break off my acquaintance with this -a-charming, young woman with a history ?" j "Monsieur Dugdale is in error. I j have not expressed a wish-it is my ! habit to command." I "Those who are under you." j "Those who find thems'elves insdde ! the limits of my province. There is 1 not a soul...
CHAPTER IV. THE AUTOCRAT OF THE BORDER PROVINCES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 16 October 1914
CHAPTER IV. THE AUTOCRAT OF THE BORDER PROVINCES. Dugdale perhaps did not feel quite so gay as he looked. Something1 told him he was about to encounter one who was destined to have more or less to do with his future, so far as it might he connected with that of the fair fugitive. And the reputation of the grim old fire-eater, as well as the appearance of his square jaws, was enough to prove that any one who ran up against him must expect to encoun ter a tough proposition. There was but little time to whip his wits into line and decide upon what tactics he should use. He knew Gratscheff to be a tiger in battle, and shrewdly concluded that while such a man might rage at first to find his will defied, he could not but secretly respect an antagonist who refused to bend before him, and who proved a foeman worthy of his steel. It was a bold game Dugdale set out to play, in which he depended on other powers to assist him. The lieutenant led him across to the fortress or citadel ; night was...
PART 2. CHAPTER III.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 16 October 1914
PART 2. CHAPTER III.-(Continued.) . As he turned to enter the tavern he heard the clear notes of a bugle floating down from the heights. What story it told was evident, for there was a sudden hustling and excitement among the uniformed guardians of the citadel. Officers appeared buckling on swords, horses were brought hastily forth, into the saddles of which sprang valiant sol diers ; and, lo ! in an incredibly brief space of time a company of fully five score men lined np to re ceive the great commanding general, whose special signal had aroused the sleepy camp. Then the three horsemen appeared in view, the general saluted officers and men, and remained in consulta tion for a short time, during -which Dugdale was thrilled to see them all look in his direction and laugh. His annoyance was evident as he stalked into the inn. Isolde had already gone to her room, leaving word that with his r permission she would join him when supper was ready, unless he had some engagement elsewhere. ....
Dissipating Fog by Wireless. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 16 October 1914
MBM-IA--mm ' mmammmassmBm Dissipating Fog by Wireless. 3 The North Railroad Company in Prance is making experiments on the use of wireless waves for clear ing away fog. It is well known that electric waves act upon the water particles which make up fog, .so as to dissolve them and turn them into vapour. Following this idea, it is claimed that as much as 600 feet can be cleared up in front of the electric wires which are" sending out the waves, the fog being at least partially dissipated, and this will have a great value in practice, especially for railroads and vessels at sea. The latter will have time to avoid each-other in this. But experiments have shown that a small piece of picture wire across the terminals of one of the small two-volt batteries, immedia tely becomes red hot, and easily lights a cigarette. Even if the battery box is locked and the safety terminals" applied, it has been shown that two pins stuck through the cable which connects the accumu lator to the lamp will ...
Ladie's Column. KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 16 October 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. A bag of salt standing where there is a smell of fish Will absorb the aroma. Raw potato-juice is a valuable cleanser. It will ,remove stains from the hands and also from woollen . fabrics. ' When making soups or stews, if , there is too much flavour of one j particular vegetable, a sprig of par I sley added will equalise the fla , vouring. j A»'ter washing lamp-chimneys, try J polishing them with dry salt. This I gives the glass a brilliant shine I and prevents it from cracking. To ease a corn which is often I painful from long standing, touch it | with a little oil of peppermint, and I the soreness will be wonderfully lessened. Starched material, even though it keeps clean longest, should be avoid ed during warm weather. The starch prevents a free currcnt of air passing through. Used in water as a daily gargle, borax keeps the throat healthy. Used in water for cleansing the j teeth it "disinfects" them and pre j vents' their- decaying. A very easy and quick way to...
