AN EFFECEIVE SEED-BED. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915

AN EFFECEIVE SEED-BED. One of the cases in which galvanised jj irou is imported makes a handy appli- | anco for raising flower seeds. Mount it 5 on legs formed from the lid, to nearly e the height of a table. With the rest c of the lid divide the cavitjr of the case £ with two lengthwise partitians and five eight breadthwise. Fill the com- p partuients with so.'l and manure; water ft them, and after the weeds come up turn h over the material and plant your seed, w The advantages are that you have your ft plants compact, easily tendod, can keep £ them freo from pests with a manimum fa of trouble, and you can easily cover tip m the frame in bad weather. The table g can be made slugproof by putting tins fe of salt and water for its legs to stand g iu.

DRYIING PEACHES AND APRICOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915

DRYIING PEACHES AND APRICOTS. Brietly, all that has to be done is to split the fruit in halves, remove the pit, Bprond the halves on trays, cut side uppermost, aud, after exposing it to the fumes of burning sulphur long enough to fix the colour put it out in the sun until dried to a leathery con sistency. The requisites are u number of wooden trays—3 ft. by 2 ft. will be found the most convenient size—a gas tight box or cabinet in which to put the trays of fruit for sulphuring, and a sharp knife for cutting.' There is nothing better for the latter purpose than a well-worn dinner-knife with a short, thin blade. Theoretically, the riper the fruit the better the sample, but in practice it should be iiriu enough to stand up on the trays and hold the juice which exudes into the cup during the sulphuring process. An elaborate sulphuring-house is not at all ucecssary. An iuverted box large euough to cover a stack of from 12 to 20 trays is com monly used. A great many of these covers are ma...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915

MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent.) The Greater .Melbourne project i.s again in evidence. There have been so many threats of this unnecessary addition to the governing bodies of the metropolis that fears of its actu ally being brought into existence should be hurd to arouse. The pre sent scheme, from what can be learn ed, has some features that commend it—such, for instance, as the con solidating of management of the street traffic facilities. But the good and necessary things which it is planned to do eould be doue without the creation of an unwieldy and un necessary body that in many other respects would be providing a fifth wheel to the Local Government coach and a costly fifth wheel at that. There is i'500 worth of damage to the furniture and fixtures at the Police Depot where the German in terned were until recently kept in comfort that would make many loyal citizens who have been vainly seek ing work for some months think they were in the lap of luxury should it...

RAISE THE HEIFERS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 11 February 1915

RAISE THE HEIFERS. No farmer should fail to raiso the heifers from his good cows. The exponso of raising a heifer is paid in instalments, and when a cow is bought, it goes in a bunch. A man may raise an extra fine cow, but a really good one is hard to buy; will cost three or four times as much as the raising of a heifer. There is, always a risk in buying that tho cow inky not (lo as well in her new location, and it takes time for bcr to get acquainted with your herd. The heifer raised on the farm is familiar with her breed and location. Mr Beginner, always raise tlio good calf from a pure bred sire. It pays. —W. E. Elliott.

MR BEECHER AND THE LOWER ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 18 February 1915

MR BEEC5HER AND THE LOWER ANIMAL. Henry Ward Beecher was upon odd occasion in the midst of an eloquent political speech when some wag in the audience crowed like a cock. It was done to perfection and the audience was in a gale of laughter. Even the great orator's freinds felt uneasy at his reception of the interruption. But Mr Beecher stood perfectly calm. He stopped speaking till the crowing ceased, and while the audience was still laughing, he pulled out his watch. Then he said "That's strange, My watch says it ii only 10 o'clock. But there can't be any mistake about it. It must be morning, for the instinct! of the lower animal? are absolutely in fallible.

FEBRUARY 13th. Mr Lazarus said his client was not I going to take np the position that be I did not use some insulting words. This constable iB known as a bitter* political opponent of Tuohy and bis ' father. The constable admits- that he was told at the polling booth that if ho wanted to .talk politics ho must go outside. Instead of tactfully walking away, this constable enters into an.argument with a man under the influence of drink. In th« first iustauee Wtsppner was refused a sum mons. If VVeppnor went to arrest Tuohy and did not do it, then he was guilty of cowardice. If he did try to arrest Tuohy aDd then allowed him to wander about to the annoyance of the public, he was wanting in his duty. He should have arrested him, as he had tho law behind him. He was convicted of a'serious crime in lowing names off the roll that should, be on. P.M.—Not a serious crime; it is nonsense to talk that way. Probably carelessness.
