No Title [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 7 January 1914

THE year 1I13 has come and gone, and was in many ways one of the most remarfable of a group of remarkable years. The casual reader of the page of his tory has little idea how near the year Just closed was to a world ,ride upheaval and revolution. This more than once seemed in evitpble. In the first place the participants in the BalknA war nearly plunged all Europe into a turmoil greater than anything witnessed even in the palmydays of the first Napoleon. By the cordial co-operation of the British and German Foreign offlces a provisional settlement was arrived at. The settlement is, however, only tempo-ary, although it had the effect of pre venting a serious collision bet ween Russia and Austria. The i;:t:na! tfect of the Balkan i 'truggie. 'hilst manifcstinr it -elf in c-.nfining Turkey within narrov--r iinits, seriously intfi encid tlie European situation, whilst externally its effect was to increase enormously the burden of military armaments in France and Germany, as well as in R...

LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 7 January 1914

LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. Mr. S. P. ieys, writing in "Hoard's Dairyman," says:--Wheu we comne to the question of tlhe upkeep of the fer tility of our farms, we lind that we face quite a serious problem. From what source are we to restore the humus, or vegetable matter, that is being rapidly exhausted by continu ous cropping.'

Farmers waste the barnyard manure, and feel that they cannot af ford to buy commiercial fertilisers. lTo till the bill tilhere nmust be something within easy access of every farm. The answer to thiis is-greetn nlanurcs. The king of legumes used in green nlanuring is luicerne.

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why is it that a newly-engaged girl Is a thorn in the fleihi to all her dia engagedl sister :wonen? To begin with-observes a lady correspondent (who is not newly-cn gaged)--she is odiously sorry for you because you (!on't happen to be a betrothed person also.

FOR THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 7 January 1914

FOR THE FARMIER. HOUSING POULTRY. If all poultry ihouses of the closed in type had an end or one side of thetm knocked out, diovase would dim inislt by oue-htalf, and the profits front thUe birda compelled to roost in them i would, probably, be doubled. It is imrpossible to conceive anything more .suLnitary anti conducive to disease than the ordinary type of fowlhouse one sees in the country. It is crnamp. ed, dark and without any ventilation, except the many draughty cracks. It is little wonder that going fromt the roetid atmpsphere into often an un slteltered yard the birds contract colds, and soon become a prey to dis ease. It were far better to let the hens roost in trees. TIhe sleeping quarters of fowls should be merely draughltt-proof shelters from extremes ot weatther and, if winter eggs be de sired, they should hb;ave dry scratch ing quarters for bad weather. ALFays hitave your poultry houses open to the north.

COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 7 January 1914

COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. There are certain peoDIe in the world whom the more you think of the less you think of them. Surely it isn't extraordinary to get pearls out of a matchbox. Lots of girls have got diamonds out of mugs before now. According to a Paris paper, "Seventy per cent. of the French people live in one room." But it must be a jolly big room. A Russian dwarf of 4ft. has, we learn, fallen in love with a St. Peters burg lady of 6ft. Sin. That's not fall ing in love---that's climbing up to it. "It is rare indeed," says a contem porary, "that a householder can get a shock from his electrical installa tlon." IHe generally gets that when the bill comes along.

There was a good attendance and all pre sent thoroughly enjoyed them selves. Tile music was supplied by Mr Dunn and Mr Crowley acted dis M.C. The arrangements made by the committee were very satisfactory. A test crop of rye, grown on Mr H.
