THE SON OF A LAZY FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 16 January 1914
THE SON OF A LAZY FARMER. My neighbor started out to plough, He's got his grain all stacked up now, And he says he wants to kill the weeds Before they've ripened up their seeds. He says what seeds are down below, All will sprout and start to grow; Then when the frosty days come on They'll all be nipped and dead and gone. I don't take stock of things like that, I'd rather fan me with my hat; I'll never be so big.a fool To try to plough till days get cool. Perhaps the weeds will go to seed, But I could never see the need Of keeping fields so nice and clean That not a thistle could be seen. If all the weeds were frozen now, There wouldn't be no use to plough. When a man has been friendly with six girls and.gets engaged to one, he has snubbed the other five. An -ambitious man should .be a bachelor. -. Then he can rise bylirt ing with the wives of the men in power.
TAXING BACHELORS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 16 January 1914
TAXING BACHELORS. Bachelors in Memphis, U.S.A., are taxed to maintain a summer house for sick babies and their mothers. The amount of the tax is determined by attractiveness of said bachelor, duo deductions being made for overweight. baldness, loss of one eye, and .general disposition." The usual tax assessed is five dollars, which is collected in the following manner. The law provides that "no unmarried male arrived at the age of twenty-one years shall be allowed on the streets of Memphis af' ter 9 o'clock p.m., or to court, visit, or accompany an unmarried woman to any place of amusement," unless he has paid the tax. He must present a bachelor's license on demand of any fimarried woman, married-man,. .or police officer. If he can't or woi't,n ie is liable to a fine of twenty-five td fifty dollars. A number resisted payment and were brought before the police magistrates and lined double the amount of the tax. Now everybody is paying cheerfully.
FARM AND DAIRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 16 January 1914
FARM AND DAIRY NOTES. The legumes-lucerne, clover, cow peas, field peas, soy beans, etc.-may be used for silage, but are not as. de sirable as corn and the sorghums. They serve an excellent purpose when mixed witlh. maize or sorghums. Where there is an abundance of other crops for the silo the legumes are best used as hay. ' The best maize silage, pound for pound, is made from maize that will mature a good crop of ears. Immature feed of any kind is not as good as mature feel. Milk is a perfect medium for bac teria development, but immediate cooling and maintenance of a low temperature wvill prevent the growth of bacteria in such numbers as will injure its keeping qualities and fitness for use. As a preventative for ticks tile "Breeders' Gazette" recommends a large spoonful of sulphur, added to a little more than a pint of salt, and thoroughly mixed. The sheep may not like it at first, but soon come to eat it, and begin to show signs of im provement. For pigs affected with lice put a...
PRAISE FROM SIR HUBERT. THE GREAT DEAD AUTHOR'S MASTERPIECE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 16 January 1914
PRAISE FROM SIR HUBERT. THE GREAT DEAD AUTHOR'S IMASTERPIECE. fly Harry Cowell, in the "Argonaut." Once there lived in a great country a great man who looked into his heart and that of things as they are, and wrote. Life as he saw it he drew, its salient features slightly exaggerated, kindly caricatured. Of his homely Lin coln-like stories; one might say: They are of the people, for the people, by one of the people. To-day the hungry millions he wrote of and for, read him and cry for more, and cry in vain. Thus an old self-taught to road West ener to a cultured young librarian: "Say, miss, can't you gimme some oth er stories like this chap writes? I know all his'n by heart." And she: '"No, sir; I .can't. I only wish I could ! There are no such stories written." Like many another great man, this well-beloved writer was very much of a child, nor ever forgot that he was once a boy himself and had birthdays. So when Huldah Blanding, she of the freckled face and the white-horse-hint ing ...

How to Neutralize Dangerous Stomach Acids. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 16 January 1914
How to Neutralize Dangerous Stomach Acids. Few people besides physicians rea. lise the importance if keeping. the food contenrts of. the stfomach free frc.n acid fermentation. Healtby normal digestion cannot take place whale the delicate lining of the stomach is being inflamed and distended. by acid and wicd-tliheres(lts of, fermenting food in the stomaich. To securo perfect di gestion, fermentation must be stopped or prevented, and the acid neutralised For this purpose physicians usually re. commend getting a little bisurated magnosia from the chemist and taking half a teaspoonful in a little hot or cold water immediately after. eating, They re:ommend bisurated magne ia because it is pleasant to ..take, has no disagreeable after effects, and instantly stops fermentation, neutralises the acid and makes the sour acid food bland, sweet and easily digeste r The regular use of bisuratod mag resia-be sure you get the bisurated, as other kinds of magnesia are of little value-is an absolut...

The Heart of a Girl By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER III.-Continued. Stanmore's injuries were not as bad as first supposed. In Oxftrd-street Queenie beckoned a taxi cab. It was the latest thin in taxis, and a light burned bright y in its interior. "tet ro read, too!" whispered Beryl in a frightened voice, as she pressed close to Queenie, the better to read the paper and slipped a would-be comfort see arem around her waist. 1' hen they read the account of the robbery between them. Tlhe secuel was contained in the space devoted to late news. Queenie turned to it mechanically. "Hasted, 31iddleshlire.

RULES FOR THINNING FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 16 January 1914
RULES EOR THINNING FRUIT. The question of thinning fruit is an ever-present one to the orchardist. One rule whichi is practised to some extent is for the grower to size up all the conditions and determine how many cases of fruit the tree should carry. It is a small matter then to determine how many fruits there should be left on the tree. The re sults at first are likely to be consid erably off the estimate, but this is very largely a matter of-practice and variation of seasons. Another rule which might:be taken in conjunction with the previous one, is to. thin plums to about two, two and a-half, or three inches, peaches four to eight, depending on the earli ness of the variety; pears and ap ples, five to seven inches apart. In thinning pears and apples, it is only with early varieties that more than one should be left on any fruit spur, and with these eai'ly varieties part of the crop may be removed in one picking, and the balance later. With winter varieties of apples it is a good...
CARE OF CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 16 January 1914
CARE OF CREAM. For the factory manager to turn out a first-grade butter hi requires the help of the farmer. The cream must be delivered in the best ordei pos sible. Cleanliness in the dairy is an essential condition. Cream cans are re turned washed, but it is very necessary that they should be thoroughly cleansed and scalded again at the farm before use. For segregating, a special room should be provided, at least 30 yards to windward of the miilkldng shed have a concrete floor, be provided with good drainage, well ventilated, and have a good supply of water. The milk should be separated as soon as possible, and while the animal heat is in the milk. The cream should at once be cooled to the lowest possible temperature; and, as the water required is small, this should present no serious difficulty. Un der no circumstances should cream from one skimming be mixed with cream from another skimming unless it has first been well cooled. The most unsatisfactory of all suppliers is the man w...

SENSE OF TOUCH TEST OF POWERS OF BLIND [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 January 1914
SENSE OF TOUCH TEST OF POWQERS OF BLIND The King and Queen have shown their interest in a remarkable experi ment which has been conducted at Sun derland in order to test the accuracy of the impressions conveyed to the blind through their sense of touch. A number of children of the Council Blind School were recently asked to express in clay the impression received, after handling various objects, includ ing animal models, etc, in the Sunder land Museum. As a result about two dozen models were produced without assistance. These were sent to Lamb ton while the King and Queen were the guests of Lord Durham. The following letter has now ieen sent by Lord Durham to MIr J. A. Charlton Deas, director of the Suther land Museum: ''When they were at Lambton the KCing and Queen examined your case of models of animal life made by the blind, and partially blind children, and were much impressed-by their work. "Their Majesties desire me to tell you how greatly interested they were by these example...

ALLEiGED GlHL DRUDGi ,CHILD'S. EVIDENCEI OF BEATINGS. A little girl of eleven, who was said to have been made a household drudge, gave evidence in West Lohdon Police Court yesterday (says "The Daily Mail," December 12) against Harry Velten and Ethel Hobson, of 15, Wood stock road, Shepherd's Bush, who were charged with ill-treating her. Mr H. Pierron, for the National So ciety for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, said the child, Lydia Maud, was the daughter of the woman defen dant, who had been heard to say that she "would like to get rid of her." The child would be punished for not doing the housework quickly enough and t!u" punished again for being late at school through doing the housework. The child, a timid little girl, de scribed how she was 'frequently beaten by the defendants. Her mother used to hit her on the shoulders with a cane three or four times a week.

SHINING CYLINDER KING GEORGE SET FASHION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 January 1914
SHININQ CYLINDER KING GEORGE SETI FASHION. The announcement that it is the de sire of the King that all Guards' of ficers in mufti should wear black coats and silk hats when in the neighbor hood of Buckingham Palace seems to point to Royal approval of recent at tempts to reinvest the silk hat with its one-time popularity. Many have asserted that the glory of the "topper'" is on the wane; that the coming of the lounge suit and the popularity of the motor car had brought about its downfall from shiny pre-eminence. But the "cylinder of civilisation" is re-asIert ing itself in its centenary year, and the hatters are rejoicing. Inquiries elicited the statement that more silk hats are being sold to-day than ever before. The demand had been most marked, even bearing in mind that this is thle tall hat season. .Professional men have of necessity remained true to the old love. Now it is the turn of the man in the street to adopt conventional headweap Once more and prove his deference to the d...
