SCOTT'S EPITAPH AND ITS ORIGIN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 9 January 1914

SCOTT'S EPITAPH AND ITS OKIGIN. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the January "Life" winch is just to hand, is a photograph and an explanation of the origin of the epitaph which was written for the memorial cross 10 Captain Scott and his fellow heroes. It seems that when Captain Scott was leaving for the South Pole Dr Alexander Leoper, Warden of Trinity College, Mel bourne, gave him as a memento a little volume of Browning, in which he wrote the eonclading lines from Tennyson's Ulysses : "To strive, to seek, to find, but not to yield." The little volume was discovered in Itie tent with Captain Scott, and the ineinbois of the ;eirch party, con sidering the lines a most appropriate epitaph, carved them on the cross which stands on Observation Hill. Other interesting articles in this excellent number are : "TheGreatest Business on earth" in which Frederick Palmer, the war correspondent, tells how Science has robbed War of its romance ; Mr Carlyle Smythe's de scription of Max O'Re...

I'd, practioally nil that are of imme diate importance can be controlled in large measure by a well-planned system of crop rotation. When crops are crown in rotation and proper tillage methods are followed, they will sillier less from dry weather than when they are ^roini continuously. Crop rotation is usually of more im portance than the methods of tillage used in this respect, although both are important. In most rotations more roughage is produced than can be disposed of by the work stock on the farm. Hence, more animals must, bo 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, peasl, in the rotation. Inasmuch as not enoug...
