THE DISPUTED TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

THE DISPUTED TERRITORY. Those who are interested in the nar row but excellent strip of country between the hundred of Pinnaroo and the Victoria Border parishes will doubt loss be pleased to learn that the eternal legal wrangling—with the exception of silent meditation of the Lords of the Appeal Court—is at an end, and that the decision is likely to be known very shortly. At any rate it is something to know that a disagreement, which has worried the two States for ovor seventy years, and for which, one or conjointly, will have to pay the full value of the land, is on the eve of settlement. If the Judges of the Appoal Court can bo dor pnnded upon for an early decision, about 15,000 acres of good wheat-growing land within the radius of the present railways should be available early in the year.

SOCIAL AT BOYEO. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

SOCIAL AT BOYEO. A correspondent writes A. grand social gathering, consisting of a tea, concert, and coffee supper, was held in the Boyeo Methodist Church on Christmas evening. The weather during the day had been somewhat unpleasant, but in the evening it changed, and many took advantage of the opportunity for an outing, and came along to tea. After tea the church was cleared and the concert proceeded with, Mr Bell, of the Kaniva Circuit, taking the chair. Too much praise cannot be given to Miss Eastick for her great kindness in getting up such a splendid enter tainment, and this lady is always to the fore in promoting any good cause. Thanks are also due to all those who provided for the tea and supper, and all who gave their talent and helped to make the gathering a success, especially the Dickinson family. The following is the programme :—An them, "Christmas Jubilee," Boyeo choir ; recitation, *' Platform Fever,,J Miss Eastick; duet, Mrs Eastick and Miss Dickinson ; anthem " Sweet...

RURAL WORKERS' DEMANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

RURAL WORKERS' DEMANDS. The rural workers camp at Wil laura, after an existence extending over about a month past, came to an inglorious end on Monday morning last. Mr Scarborough, the organiser, announced to the forty campers that he had received instructions from the union headquarters to breakup the camp immediately. At the out set a dozen men constituted the camp, but the number quickly increased until at one stage fitty men had as sembled. Of this number not more than half a dozen were successful in securing work, farmers being able to obtain labourers from other sources. The men in camp embraced about 80 per cent of unionists, but thoy were not an entirely happy body of men owing no doubt to the intemperate habits of a section. The order to break camp came as a shock to some of the men. Practically all were penniless, and the disbanding with out notioe meant that with the chance of obtaining employment in the district being meagre, and no money to pay train fares or buy food, ...

LUBRICATION OF FARM MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

LUBRICATION OF FARM MA CHINERY. I One of the little things that is lacking on a majority of farm imple | raents is a good and convenient sys tem of lubrication. The common oil cup with open top or loose cap is sure to get filled with dirt or grit which cute out the bearings, largely increasing the power required to ope rate the machine and greatly reduc ing its period of usefulness. The hard oil cup, which holds enough oil to last a week or more, is always tight and can be screwed down a little each day, thus ensuring a clean bear ing and a regular supply of grease. Many of the common implements could be vastly improved by replac ing the common oil holes with'hard oil cups. The oil-holes can be easily reamed out and then threaded to the proper standard, and tho hard oil-cups screwed into them. The amount of work and expense ro quired will be returned many fold in the saving of horseflesh and in the increased life of the machinery.

CARING FOR FARM POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

OARING FOE FARM POULTRY. Farm poultry can only be profitable where Bome consideration is given the birds. You csnnot expect them to roost all the winter in the open and lay 6ggs, for they simply cannot do it. They must have a comfortable house and a fairly warm place in which to roost. Their food . oannot bo a constant diet of one corn; they must have a variety, and it must be served where they can get exercise when searching for the kernels, Some local farmers throw a peck of oats or cracked corn to a lot of fowls, all in one spot, and that a bare one. The lucky ones simply gorged themselves with the grain, and then retired to await another feeding. The proper thing is to feed these birds in deep litter; then they will have to work in order to get their food. This exercise is good for them, and they require it as much as we do in order to have good health. If the farmer will get thoroughbred fowls, houBe them in a proper manner, and feed them as carefully as he does his other stock...

SHOULD MEN AND WOMEN. BATHE TOGETHER? [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

SHOULD MEN AND WOMEN. BA.THE TOGETHER? "With the summer at its height the | metropolitan newspapers are, as usual, discussing very fiercely the question of mixed bathing. Views on both sides are expressed by scores of correspondents, and " Everylady's Journal" has been to the trouble of collecting the ideas of such notable people as the Lord Mayors of Sydney and Melbourne, Archbishop Mannix and Canon Hughes, the Commissioner of Police and a lady doctor, the Amer ican, French, and German consuls and Mr. "Snowy" Baker, the famous surf champion. The views of these varied folk it may be added, are illus trated with a number of magnificent camera views that seem also to offer arguments on both sides of the vexed question: "Should Mixed Bathing Be Encouraged ?" The majority of people asked replied in favour of mixed bath ing—within reasonable limits, The bord Mayor of Melbourne thinks that the "sea is quite big enough tor both men and women to swim in,'' and his sympathies are entirely in...
