The Holidays. HOW THEY WERE SPENT [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914

The Holidays.: HOW THEY WERE SPENT Xmas once more is passed "and gone. Perhaps the scenes in the streets of Seymour on Xmas Eve were never gayer or more fasciuat inug than they were on that occa sion. The shops in both the "old" and the "new" towns, as they are euphemistically termed, were clad in their, richest apparel. being decked out with a display of goods that were a credit to their enter p-ising owners, and were arranged with that skill and taste which is the outward and visible sign of innate genius. The enormous crowd that assembled in the streets was larger, we venture to say, than on any previous occasion, while the volume of business done surpassed that of former -years. This is only what is to be expected in such a thriving town as Sey m)ur. The crowd was a pleasant and good-natured one, and while it was marked with propriety and decorum, was as joyous and. as merry could be. It is also pleas ing to record the fact that there was an entire absence of " horse-play," good...

ENSILAGE. SOME ADVANTAGES OF ENSILING GREEN FODDER CROPS. Before the practical farmer gives his attention to ensilage-making, he natur ally .wishes to know in what . respect this system is superior to the old and ,time-honoured method of. hay and roots. - Now it must be remembered that hay and roots system is, and has been: for centuries,-the system in vogue in a?eountry .of high rents' and cheap la bor. -In New. Zealand the reverse is the case, with the additional. disad vantage of our.market being on the other side of the globe. Some new method, therefore, of providing food to keep stock in condition during the months when grass is not in evidence is.-,absolutely essential.. We know that many farmers have attempted to solve the difficulty by grazing their 'stock on grass all the year roupd; but has this practioe proved a success? Is it not a fact that, -especially of. late years, when the rapid. destruction of our large. inland forests has made droughts more frequent, . numbers of...

Aooldents and Fatalities It is, indeed, painful in the ex treme to have to record so many accidents since Christmas. The pleasure and joy of the festive sea son has been marred by unexpected calamities, which were in the womb of the future when those..more im inediately concerned were celebrat ing the most joyous event of the year, viz., Christmas.. The sad drowning fatality at Nagambie was a terrible calamity, and .brought grief and.pain to a household where a few hours ppreviously joy and gladness prevailed. Much sympathy is felt for Mr Roid Master O'Connor, of Seymour, in the death:. f his son, aged 24, which sad evebit occurred in the Melbourne hospital on Mouday last, death-being due to dropsy, His remains were"brought to Seymour for interment.. The Rev. Father Consodine performed the last sad rites at the grave, and the funeral obsequies were conducted by.

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914

TURF TOPICS. (By "Flemington.") Despite the recent activity of the police in their efforts to suppress what may be called "tohwn" betting, it is still easily possible to place a wager ~itl'out going to the course. For thoe." who wish to invest, the facilities for starting price betting are always avail able. " There must be good money in this kind of bookmaking, for, notwith standing, the many prosecutions, ope rators ready to do business can still be found all over the city, -and in the different sulibrbs. . They are up-to date in= their methods. Ten minutes before the time appointed -for each race they can -show their customers the final scratchings, and they also.secure other information supposed to be of use to the punter.. . It might be -supposed that these "bookmakers" are solely supported by the- "silver' punter who cannot afford to invest more thin a. few shillings, but this is not exactly correct. It is true that street betting is to a great extent carried on in silver, but...

DUST SPRAYING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914

DUST SPRAYING. A demonstration in dust spraying, which is quite the latest development in potato-growing, was reported in the North British Agriculturist. The material sprayed consists of' mixture of sulphate of copper and other ingreid ients precipitated to secure suflicienit finness of division.. Tuis mixture is forced from the machine in the form of a misty cloud, which penetrates in all directions, and is said to get better under the leaves than the liquid spray even at high pressure, while the dry spray is much more easdy handled. After spraying the field presented a greyish, dusty appearance sometimes see on the side of .a street much fre quented by motor cars. Fifteen acres per day.could be sprayed, and the la bour was very much less than with Bordeaux mixture. The cloud of "dust could be directed so as to reach the ex treme end of the -drills. - The cost amounted to 22/ to 23/ -per acre. - It was-thought that the stimulation re suiting from spraying would enable the older va...

FROM EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914

- FROM EXPERIENCE. The conversation turned to the fads and fancies of the sweetsome sex, and Justice McKenna told of the sen timrental city girl who was spending some time in the country. So full of sentiment and so imagin ative was she, said the Justice, that she could hear the trees whisper, the bushes sigh and the- .ants sing. One day in June she was sitting be neath a cherry tree with several chil dren, one of whoMn was a ten-year-old boy. Overhead da gentle breeze softly purred-through th'h quivernig-leaves. "Listenl" suddenly exclaimed the young lady. "Can't you hear this poor tree groaning, Johnny ?" -"No I don't hear it groan," replied Johnny, assuming a listening attitude; "but. 1 know how it feels to be full of green cherries."

THE SLUMS OF DUBLIN. TEN IN ONE ROOM. "A ease was heard recently in the Dublin Northern Police Court in which two men were charged with assaults on the police during a riot." says the "Irish 'Iimes" in- a remarkable lead ing airticle. "They made counter charges of a very serious kind against a sergeant and six constables. In the course of the hearing a bright and terrible light was throwng on the con ditibhsof life in the tenement slums of Dublin. "The brothers William and Patrick O'Leary, are laborers. They live to gether in a front room on the third floor of 2 Marlborough place. William O'Lear was. asked .to- state the num ber of occupants of this room on the night of August 31. He replied my wife, myself, six children of mine, my brother Pat, and one child of his, who is dying of consumption. There are ten of us in the room." O'Leary's wife confirmed this evi dence.

CURIOUS HOBBIES. EXTRAORDINARY AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914

CURIOUS HOBBIES. EXTRAORDINARY AM USEMENTS. Nearly everyone has some kind of hobby-sometlnng that he or she ran turn to for enjoyment hi leisure mo ments, but, as a rule, most hobbies take a very ordinary form, such as stamp collecting, photography, or hunting buttertlies. Occasionally, however, people have strange ideas of what con stitutes amusement, as the following cases will show: A short time ago, there died in Ger many an old man of 76. It was no ticed during his lifetime that when ne went to a cafe, he always helped him self to a quantity of lump sugar, whioh he put in his pocket and took home. No one could understand why he did this until his death, when in his room were discovered numerous models of houses and railway stations, all made out of ilumps of sugar. Modelling in sugar was the old man's sole hobby, and it was estimated that in making his little house he had utilised no fewer than 10,000 lumps of sugar. There is in America a married couple named Vernon, whose hobb...

THE MORAL TURKEY. TROT.' Trotting is a'_so' a foe to fat.: I haveo a patient,. a woman of about forty-five whose great trial it was that she was fat and growing fatter. It was a :physioal annoyance and a men tal worry. She was cross and miser able. "Exercise," I said to her when 'she first came to me about it. She did. She wentto a gymnasium that taught a one, two, three, bend, stretch. touch-the-floor system. It was tiring and harrowing-and fatten ing. Sh came to .me again. Fash ion had come to my assistance. "Tur key trotting," I advised. So she joined a class of women. They meet three times a week in the afternoon to trot undei the direction of a dancing master who puts them through their paces.

The Mont d'Or tunnel between Irance and Switzerland, on which boring' operations began nearly three years ago, has just been oompleted (says the "Mail") The tunnel, which is three miles and three quarters long, bores through th Jura mountains from Frasne to Bal lorbe, thus obviating an 11 mile de tour by Pontarlier, and should have been pierced two months ego.

The line, by shortening the journey from Paris to Lusanne, wil brilng the winter resorts of the Jura Mountains many. hours nearer London." This is the ninth important tunnel in Europe.
