RECKLESS BRAVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913

RECKLESS BRAVERY. Many deeds of reckless daring nro | recorded, but hero is one chronicled j by no less a man than tho great Duko ! of. "Wellington. Ho was once asked ; who, In his opinion, was the bravest man at Waterloo. v | "1 can't tell you that,1' he said, "but I can tell you of one than whom 1 aril, sure there was no braver. He was'^ouly a private in tho artillery, but, hail he survived that day, he would have been an officer. A farm house, with an orchard surrounded by a thick hedge, formed a most .import ant point in tho British position, and was ordered to be held at any hazard or sacrifice. The hottest of tho bat tle raged round this point, but the English behaved well, and beat back the French, though they attacked this place again and again with great fury. "At last the powder and ball were found to be running out; and at the same time the timber iti the hedges took lire, and the orchard was soon surrounded by a ring of flame. A mes senger had, however, been sent to tho ...

DAIRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913

DAIRY NOTES. The dairyman, may have plenty of sooci feed, but i£ ho feeds it to poor cows ho will lose a large portion of its value. One of the prime essentials of a goo'd dairy cow is a large, well shaped" udder, good sized teats,- and easy milking qualities. 2sTo matter how good a cow may toe in other respects, if she is a hard milker she is not desirable to keep in a herd of dairy cows. If you had a heifer that has -been, bred young give her a good rest be fore breeding again. You may have the best cows in the world, but if you do not feed and manage them properly they can never , be made to pay. There is such a thing as scruD feeding as well as scrub stock. When a person gets a good cow he is much more likely to take care of it than he is if of a scrub. A cow that has to scurry over a large area to get food will not begin to glvo as much militias one which can get it on a small area and lie down and chew her cud at rest. Don't try to keep a cow for milk and beef. She will disapp...

DAIRYING. DRYING OFF THE COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913

DAIRYING. DRYING OFF THE COWS. "A system by which I consider dairymen aro annually losing thou sands of poundB is allowed in dry ing off their cows," writes a-corre spondent in the course of a letter, in which ho urges the adoption of a new mothod. Tho writer says that the general method followed is to miss a cow for two or thruo mllklng3, then, four, until tho worst cows are dried off, but tho best cows (tho ones moat wanted in any herd) . havo got too near calving, and are turned out in the last fortnight when they are springing. A cow treated in this way is in a l'ever during tho irregular milk ing, not knowing when milking time is coming. Milking a cow after a day or two's spell induces inflammation uf tho udder, and consequently thick milk, until tho vessel of the animal Is in a diseased state. A dairyman is often heard to say that one of his best cows is not worth milking after calv ing, and that he could not dry her off before it. Almost every farmer can quote similar cases. ...

BETRAYED BY THEIR TRADE The Police Can Tell the Trade of Almost Every Worker by HIs Hands. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913

[ BETRAYED BY THEIR TRADE [ The Police Can Tell the Trade of .Almost Every Worker by HIsHands. J One of tlie questions that is asked' t,f everyone who is brought into a polieo-station is "trade or profession?" I'he innocent man tolls tho truth—so docs tho criminal who can lose nothing by so doing. Some criminals, however, find it \ital to their case to conceal thoir real trade. Hut tho cute detective-in r.pector only smiles when lie suspects a iie. Ho knows perfectly well that he will get at the truth in a day or two, for it is almost as easy to tell a man's trade as to tell his nationality— when you know how. There are, roughly, two methods o£ testing trades. One is by the obser vation of minute marks that are only made by a particular occupation. Thu other is by tricking the suspect into betraying knowledge that none outside liis trade could have. Of course, few criminals would be so .silly as to claim membership of a skilled trade, for tho inspector would limply demand an exhibit...

FAMOUS WOMAN TRAVELLER. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913

FAMOUS WOMAN TRAVELLER. I Mrs. Mary Gauut, the well-known ! traveller, is now on anexpedition through unknown China. Mrs. Gaunt goes straight to Pekin to her brother in-law, Dr. Morrison (Chinese Morri son), who, of course, has been able to give much valuable advice on the proposed expedition. Like her West African expedition of two years back, her present jour ney is of considerable personal risk, and one of her brother's special coun sels was to the effect that she must buy herself a good Mauser pistol, and Mrs. Gauut worked hard to become an expert shot. Her work, "Alone in West Africa," was probably the luDst successful travel book of 1912, and is now in its fourth edition. Small of stature, and essentially wo many, Mrs. Gaunt is not the sort of person whom one would imagine as i a traveller into parts where white wo- ! men have never penetrated before.1 She will not develop her plans until she reaches Pekin. She.has said cas ually that she may be absent for k year, and that her...

A "Fowl" Stroke. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 2 January 1914

A "Fowl" Stroke. Fittingly clad. In Norfolk Bult and hop-scotch stockingB, Lofter Greene strode forth to play his daily round of "goff." Just as he was about to "tee off," however, an old woman dashed out of an adjacent cottage and hailed him. "Are you the man who was playiu' here yesterday?" she cried. "I was playing here yesterday!' re plied Lofter pompously. "Then I reckon your Bport'll cost you 'arf-a-sovereign," said the wo* man. "You've been an' killed one o' my prize 'ens!" "Preposterous!" exclaimed Greene. "There wasn't a fowl about!" "Dessay there weren't!" replied the woman. "But, after you'd gone, I found a golf-ball, and poppel it under ono o' my 'ens for a nest-egg!" "Well?" said the. golfer. "It ain't well!" snapped the lady. " 'Cos that 'en's dead of a broken 'eart through thinkin' I wanted It to lay crinkley eggs!"

WOMEN WHO BOSS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 2 January 1914

WOMEN WHO BOSS. Woman has ovory right to be inde-1 pendent, but the moment she becomes . "bossy' she loses her charm. I A woman's strongest weapon is gontleness, and the wise woman knows it. The average man can be led, but he is very apt to baulk when driven. If you must have your own way, get it by gentle, not by sledge-hammer methods. No man likes to feel that he is a cypher in His own house. Woman has her own domain, and it is cjuito right that Bhe should be the queen of it, but when she also wants to be king, prime minister, and entire cabinet, she is over-stepping her bounds. There is nothing very lovable about the woman who always wants to lead In everything. You don't feel like putting your arm about her or giving her a loving little pat every time you pass her. And as for telling her your secrets, you never dream of that. She will give you advice ad libitum; and, .what's more, she will inBist that you take it, which Is very tiresome. Wo often ask for advice which we have no ...

ON MARRYING A FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 2 January 1914

ON MARRYING A FACE. Many men have married only a face, to have their imagination satisfied by what they considered to be beauty. As a matter of fact, when there is only a; face, beauty is simply impossible. In such a case beauty Is not a question of form, or outline,'or color; the deep est beauty, the truest and most abiding beauty, can only be secured in association with mental and moral qualities. The form itself may be de stitute of beauty, and yet in the very face and figure there may be a strange and happy fascination because of the energy of the indwelling and all-direct ing life. To Imagine that face-beauty svill last, supposing it to be nothing more, Ib self:delU5ion of the most vex atious kind. Where face-beauty is as sociated with mental beauty, so much the better. Never forget, however, the old proverb which says "Handsome Ib that handsome does." Beauty of char acter will outlast beauty of form and beauty of color. The latter may be pleasant enough for a few days, but can...
