BUSINESS FRIENDSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
BUSINESS FR!iENDSHIP. "Thero is no friendship in business," that is the verdict of the cynic; here is ours: T 1here is no success in business without friendship, You have to be friends with your suppliers, with your customers with your assistants, and aven w:ith your coimpetitors. You can not afford, simply cannot afFord to be otherwise. Success in business, no raat:or what your lines or your position, depends upon many things, but upon none more than the1 power to make and keep plenty of friends. "To have friends-be no." In these fiveo words Elbert R:ubbard has sumnined up the entire science, phi! osophy, and art of making and keeping friends.
AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
AGRICULTURAL ITIf ,S-l Imperfect drainage is one of the chief causes of orohard trees dying. Usually the grower attributes the loss of his trees to every known disease before giving the drainage system rea sonable consideration. It matters not whether footrot be in feotious or not, prevention Is better than cure, and if such sheep as are lame are removed from the flock, they can be attended to more effectually and readily, and the disease cured more quickly than if allowed to run with the remainder of the flock. Milk should always be heated in jack eted vessels so that it will not get burned. The praotice of introducing livd steam into milk as a means of heating is most objectionable. Sediment is often carried in the steam from the boiler, aid where water softening com pounds are used, the milk will become tainted. Milk has a maximum viscosity at a temperature of 32 deog to iX0 deg. F. As the temperature of milk t ises, its vis cosity decreases. The viscosity of milk may be demonstr...

TEMPERANCE NOTES. (Contributed by Temperance Council.) [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
TEMPERANCE NOTES. (Contributed by Temperance Council.) A temperance reformer, "Billy Sunday," is doing very effective work for prohibition in America. He conducts missions sometimes lasting six weeks, prior to the time for taking the vote, with remarkable success for prohibition. Take one instance out of many. Five years ago Steubenville went dry, but two years ago it stepped back into the " wet" column with a majority of 1493. After Billy Sunday closed his meeting another vote was taken, and Steubenville went dry by 160 majority. It is conceded, both by ealoonists and the general public, that the victory was due to the number who had " hit the trail" at the Sunday meetings. The consumption of pure spirits in France has now reached the appalling average per head of 5.3 quarts per year, or nearly 14 quarts of ordinary commercial liquor. There is one bar for every. 82 inhabitants in France, as compared with one for every 430 in England. It is now proposed to limit the bars in France t...

FEEDING DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
FEEDING DAIRY COS, . The English Field says :-The increas ed prominence that is given to thoe ques tion of feeding dairy cows is indiectice of the growing Importance of daic y ia:-. ing and :f the closer aTtentjion that is devoted to economy in p rduction. The experiments carried out. at the agricul tural colleges, and partiouarlyv at tih Armstrong, the WVye, and the r-ii?-er Adams Colleges, havei ntensified, if tley did not actuaii, originate, the wider interest that is now manifested i this subject, It is ev:oent that the teaching .f the college experiments has not' been ig nored north of the Tweed. The Scot tish farmer is no except:rn in that he does not change nis metihods ouickl or without a prospect of resul·in an- it but like jis neighbors in the South, he is eager to discover a means o econo raising expenditure and argu o aning income. While he does not put a;'ide the plans evolved from long :,per:nce, ulnder the uc-u~iar conditions of 1:. Bolding, hie is ever on the look-ou...

SHAKIESPEARE SOCIETY. SUCCESSFUL RE-OPENING. After a recess of three months, the Maryborough Shakespeare Society commenced the 1914 season by a meeting held in the Presbyterian school hall on Friday evening. There was a good attendance, ladies predominating. In his opening remarks, the presi dent, Mr Chas. Waters, welcomed those present, and expressed the hope that all would energetically endeavour to further the interests of the society during the coming season. During the recess, the sec retary (Mr J. M'Cay) had left for Melbourne and a suitable presenta tion had been made him on the society's behalf. The president fur ther intimated that as the acting secretary (Mr A. Chisholm) was unable to continue in office, it was desired that members send in written nominations therefor. A feature of the programme was the music, which, though mostly non-Shakespearian, was contributed by request, and made the evening decidedly bright. Mrs R. H. Earl opened with a sparkling overture of Scottis...
A COOL PROPOSAL. (CONTRIBUTED.) [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 30 March 1914
A COOL PROPOSAL. -4--- (CONTRIBUTED.) The Interstate Commission has had a new proposal put before it in the shape of a bounty on the pro duction of crude oil from shale in New South Wales. It appears that a company was formed a few years ago, with a capital of £1,250,000, and a manager, whose remuneration was £5000 a year, and 5 per cent. on all money he spent for the company. He of course spent all it had and about a quarter of a million besides. As one of the witnesses stated, " they went the pace," and of course failed. There is now a proposal to write off a lot of the original capital, get in some fresh money and have another try. The request made to the commission was at first that the public should give them 2d p'r gallon on all the crude oil they pro duced from shale, and they expected to produce 4,000,000 gallons a year. Thus they wished everyone in Aus tralia to be compelled to contribute to a sum of over £33,000 per annum to be handed over as a "benefit fund." They ask for...

CARISBROOK CLUB. The annual meeting of the Caris brook Football Club was held on Thursday evening. The President, Mr T. Wenmouth, occupied the chair, and a large number of players and supporters were present. The annual financial statement showed the club to be £16 5s in funds, which was considered very satisfactory.
