SAVED HIMSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 27 January 1914
SAVED HIMSELF. A non-commissioned officer, enter (ng a barrack gate in Dublin, was mis taken by the "raw recruit" on sentry go, who immediately saluted him. The non-commissioned officer, unaware that his colonel was-just behind, re turned the salue-a thing not permis sible in the circumstances. Soon he was called before the cole nel. On presenting himself, he was asked how he came to return the sal ute, knowing full well that he was not entitled to it. Not in the least em barrassed, he promptly.answered. "Sir, I always return everything I am not entitled to." The colonel, taken back by his ready wit, laughingly dismissed him. Sundays and holidays excepted, it is estimated that £20,003 worth of fish are daily dragged out of the sea by British fishermen. It is characteristic, perhaps, of sport, that its followers bring to its pursuit a wealth of the finest qualities known. Courage, endurance, self-sacrifice, chivalry-these are commonly regard. ed as the essential elements of heroic ac...

SHEEP SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 27 January 1914
SHEEP SALES. -0 Sheep hav'e been good property for some time, and promise to be so for an indefinite period. The market is keen, and prices have been advancing hteadily for some considerable time. The cause is the high price ot wool and meat, consequent on the increasing de mand and consumption in the mar kets-of the world, and particulariv mi.the Umnited States. The rains of Sunday and yesterday will shar pen the enquiry for sheep, as the growth of feed will be stimulated. In Gippsland more people are nm tcreste in sheCep than at any previous period~, and the province is now carrying many thousand more. Sheep farmers are unloub' tedly doing well. Owing to the higher price olmeat, the meat pro ducing breeds will have more at tion, and Gippsland wi!l sen:l more fat lambs and 'sheep to the market than hi:herto. A. M'Lean an!

After intervie wing the 'oxne" o' the cactus at Baniawm, where he is working, the party returried to Rochester,,,and to0k pos-ession of the plants, which.had been propa gated in Itins, and had made fine growth. It seems 'that some mistake was made in allowing the plants into Victoria under the Noxious Wededs Act. The settler ptcted quite openly. The cactus plants are alleged to pass 'through by an error of the shipping agents' carrier with the irct:ler's luggage. The consignment seitei is the true Burbank spineless variety, se cured after grealt trouble by the settler, who wprked for two years on Mr. Burbank's Santa Rosa nurseries to get experilnce before coming to Aus:ra'na.

MORWELL RACESz, YEs I .KDAY. The Morwell Turf Club races were held yesterday. The dull 'wcater mnterferred with the atten dance somewhat. but the gate mo ncy was above 'tile a\verage. The balance will be on tile rliht side of the ledger. On the whole, the racing was good, but some of the fields were 'small. There wps some unpleasantness with the owner of' Sea God, which was disoua'itied by tile Yinnar stewards recently for running with shoes on. It trans pires that the XV.R.C. was not ac quainted with the disqualification. The horse was entered for thle Pubhlcans' Purse, and notwithstan dng t he disqua'ification thle owner clalmea the right to run himn, Th~i stewards flatly refused to let the horse start, whereupon the owlier threatened legal proceedings to re cover the amount of the stake.

"GO ANQ DO SOMETHING:. -o ADVICE TO AUSTRALIANS. "Austra'ia and the Emplre," was the subject on which Sir George Reid addressed a large and cor dial gathermng in the Coloseum. He urged that the study of the mind was essenltial. He wanted to see the young Austrahan throw his Greek and Latin into the street and go and do something that would tell upon the magnificlent resources of the'country. Not that he dispised Greek and Latin-he had learned Latin himself, and had forgotten It all as soon as he pas sed his exammatlon--but he could never learn Greek, and in New South Wales he had got an act of Parhlamerit passed makming It op tlonal with logic and French. Laughter. There were nore he role tbmgs for young Australians to do than to search for the North Pole. They should go out and do something. It might be hard work, but it people did not work hard they would soon get rusted.

WHAT IS A NEW SHOW' EXI-HIBIT? -o At the show of the Bairnsdale Agricultural Society in November last the winner of the prize offered for the best cushlori was protes ted on the ground that the article was not new, andti therefore mneli gible to compete, according to the wonditions made. and provided. wheremn it was set forth that all work mn this class must be nO, and be the work of the exhibitor. The exhibitor, a young lady, on beming written to, admitted that she had taken a prize at the pre vious show with the same article.
