Baby Heirs to Millions. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 January 1914

Baby Heirs to Millions. Seldom has a baby started life with such a prospect of future richCs as the Marquess of Bowmont, the little sou of the Duke and Duch css of*-' Roxburghe. His mother, who before her marringe Was Miss ■ May. Goelet, inherited with her bro ther, Mr. Robert Goelet, an in conie from a trust fund of pro perty worth no less than £8,000, 000. In addition to this the baby will, in the days to come, probably enjoy an income of £100,000 (or ; £2,000 a week), which his mother inherited from her father. There ' will also be' another, income, which Mrs. Ogdcn Goelet left to her daughter, the Duchess, while ono must not. forget .the. 60,500 acres which will pass from the Duke to his son. There are one or two other lucky babies who, although not perhaps quite so well off as the little Mar quess of Bowmont, are not like ly to suffer any great want. On the last day of 1910 a son and heir was bora . to the Earl and Countess Fitzwilliam. ' The Karl j owns 1.15,000 acres in Engla...

RURAL W0KERS' DEMANDS. WILLAURA CAMP DISBANDED. The rural workers' camp at Willaura, ■ifter an existence extending over about a month past, came to a inglorious end on Monday morning last. Mr. Scar borough, the organiser, announced to the forty campcrs that he had received instructions from the union headquarters to break up the camp immediately. At the outset a dozen men constituted • he camp, but the numbers quickly in creased, until fifty men had assembled at one stage. Of this number not more than half-a-dezen were successful in securing work, farmers being able to obtain laborers from o:hc-r sources. The men in the camp embraced about eighty per cent, of unionists, but they were not an entirely hap| y 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 without notice meant that with the chances of obtain ing employment in the district being meagre, and ...

6,000 Miles of Scallops to make Sea Food Cheap. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 January 1914

6,000 Miles of Scallops to make Sea Food Cheap. r In these days, when the cost of liv ing is so high, no little importance attaches to the discovery of an en tirely new source of N food supply almost as one might say, at our very doors. It Is just a matter of scallops. But-these shellfish are mighty good to cat—and just think, if you please, of a vast and continuous bed of them 200 miles long and averaging thirty miles in width. Such beds - have been found not far off the At lantic coast on our side and over "'7 sea. One exploring vessel; the Grampus, came across one bed—a molluscan deposit undreamed of— while hauling a deep-sea net along the bottom just to see what there .might be to catch. A quantity of scallops was brought to the sur face. This excited immediate in terest, and the net—a kind of dredge on runners—was lowered again 'and again, fetching up on each occasion from one to three bushels of the bivalves. The bed seems to con tain more scallops than ever were known in the ...

An Old-world Window-Seat [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 January 1914

An Old-world Window-Seat r , - Vain are the sigha given by subur ban housewives when they gaze on the charm and daintiness of a win dow seat. Hut that sigh need not j I be pi veil by anyone willing to go to 'a little expense and trouble. That square or round bay window can be transformed, if your husband is clever with his tools, and you are nimble with your needle. An amateur could easily effect the illustration below. The seat con- j .si.sts of a broad bench of deal wood, with firm wooden supports. When ! this is fixed, cut your ticking' or un bleached calico exactly to the size of the seat, and nil the cushion with a good horsehair stuffing ; flock is cheaper, and quite good.

An interesting Animal. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 January 1914

An interesting Animal. It is calculated that one kangaroo eats as much grass and consumes as much food generally as do five sliegp, and consequently he is look ed upon as an enemy in ,<lueens lajid, "to be hunted with the one .idea;-- o£ exterminating^, him alto In roaming- the woods there one is almost sure to /all in with more or less of these animals. They are usually found sitting ■ tipriglit in circles of a dozen or more, as grave as though engnged in holding a for mal council. . Their short fore-paws hang limp before them, while' their restless heads and delicate ears turn hither' and thither in watchful care against surprise. When they are young they are as I playful as kittens. Even when run ning away from pursuit—a process performed by enormous leaps, often covering ia rod at each flying jump —there is a certain airy grace and harmony of movement attending their motions. Dogs and horses have more power of endurance than the*, kangaroo, and are.thus enabled to run...

THE FARM. SUB-SOILING WITH EXPLOSIVES. SOME PRACTICAL HINTS ON THEIR USE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 January 1914

THE FARM. 1 "SUB-SOILING WITH EXPLOSIVES. SOME PRACTICAL HINTS ON THEIR USE. It is well to realise that laud is bought or leased according to its surface measurement, and if we can succeed iiv making the under soils contribute n share towards the pro duction of better crops, we arc add ing to the producing area of our farms in the most economical wuv possible. Land is getting very dear ou the surface, and to get the best possible returns per acre we must, on all our stiller soils or those, un derlaid by "hard-pan," break up tin sub-soils to allow the roots of the. plants a full range for root growth. Farming by dynamite has caught on in the United States, and is spread ing throughout Canada and. Mexico like a prairie lire. It seems a strar.ge way of making the ground bring forth its produce in plenty, but there is no getting away from the fact ! that it acts. Doubtless the man who tried th? trick first and met with success was quite in the dark as to why it sue | cceded. It is a moo...

CROP ROTATION OF PERMANENT BENEFIT. R. C. Doneghue, Prof, of Agronomy, North Dakota Agricultural College. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 9 January 1914

CROP ROTATION OF PERMANENT BENEFIT. R. C. Boucgliue, Prof, of Agronomy, North Dakota Agricultural OoUeirc. While all the causes of low yields or trie small grains cannot be remov ed, practically all that are of imme diate importance can lie controlled in large measure bv a well-planned system of crop rotation. When crops are grown in rotation and proper tillage methods are folic wed, tliey will sulYer less from dry weather than when they are grown continuously. Crop rotation is usually of more im portance than the methyls of tillage used in this respect, although both are important. In most rotations more rouriiage is produced than can be disposed of by the work stock on the farm. Hence, more animals must be kept and more manure produced to return to the land to keep up the supply of organic matter. The organ ic matter in the soil may also be maintained by growing grasses and legumes, (clover, lucerne, peas), in the rotation. Inasmuch as not enough manure can be produced on a farm t...

Hutchinson, Minister for Agriculture and Water Supply, is not to have a walk-over for his olclconstituency, as he is being opposed by Mr. Farquhar M'Rae, farmer, of Wallup, who also stands as a Liberal. Strenuous efforts were made to induce Mr. M'Rae to re tire and thus prevent a split in the Liberal ranks, but Mr. M'Rae replied that he had given his word to a repre sentative deputation and his friends would not allow him to withdraw. At a meeiing of Mr. M'Rae's sup porters held at Warracknabeal on Satur day. last about 200 attended, and the chair was occupied by Mr. J. Bunge.
