Dairy Records [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

Dairy Records J. A. .Ruddick, Dairy and Co~d Storage -Commissioner, Ottawa, Can ada, .writes:- "Unless the figures are actually be fore ,ne, the variations in production found in the some herd seem almost incredible. For instairce, in three Ontario herds, the difference in yield betircen the best a. d the poorest cow runs aotually .at 8100, 9100 and 10,000 lbs of milk; the extremes in individual eows are 3690 and 17,615 lbs. This proves that neither an occasional weighing or testing of a sample, nor a hasty reckoning of a herds average yicld can possibly give any -me:isure of justic, either to the abunrdant or to tihe conomioal producer, 'o: that the kinowledge requisite to building up a good herd has stillto be sought.

i - LIFE IN PAPUA. "SOMEd INTERESTING DETAILS., (By E. H. Vroland, Survey Depart ment, Papuas, formerly of Vic S toria.) SOn the night of Dctober 16th last, 1 left Port Mloresby, and, by moonlight took the road that runs eastward, through low grassy hills, to the foot of the rugged Astrolabo ranges. Passing by a few cotton and sisal hemp plan tations I reached at daylight the new township of "Rouna," situated 17 miles from Port Moresby, by the side of the beautiful Yalake river. "Roena" will be the terminus of the railway which is to be built from Port Moresby, in order to assist in the development of thile Astrolabe copper fields, the princi pal mine in which "the Yalake" has been proved to contain millions of tons of high grade copper ore. 'iThis mine, like many others in thie distriot, is awaiting more capital and the railway. Next morning the carriers and the remainder oe the party having arrived, we took thIe road that leads to the tqp of Hombromn Bluff-a rugged mountain that f...

DISEASE SPREAD BY DUST. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

DISEASE SPREAD BY DUST. We have lately been warned that ts,'deadly germs,of tetanus of lock jaw infest the dust of our streets. The disease, in spite of all research, is sur rounded with a considerable amount of mystery, and it has increased during the last ten years very appreciably. Earthy. material and dust is now whirl ed about by the rapid travelling motor vehicles, whether they carry passengers or goods, to an extcnt never before known, and it is to this cause that the increase inl the disease is attributable. One suggestion inade is that houses should be built a little back from the roadway so that a belt of garden-may intervene,. and allow the dust to settle instead of reaching the dwellers in the houses. But this Will not do nmuch to help the pedestrians who .must use the roads. The only .safeguard .will be for the road authorities to keep the streets damp and so to prevent the spread of germ-earryi:g dust. Besides this the publio must realise that any wound, even the sligh...

FERTILITY OF WHEAT LANDS [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

( FERTILITY OF WIEAT LANDS Fallowing is an excellent means of storing up soil moisture and cleaning the land,-and on this account it pays for doinug. But in the long run the wheat fallow-wheat system can only be viewed as a temuporary expedient. .. Where it is well done, the soil is seriously deplet ed in organso matter by fallowing. In Califorms the oonditions somewhat dlosely resemble those of our northern areas, but oultivation is of older date, and the experience of California, there fore, is for us fully significant. The subject is dealt with in an exhaustive bulletin (211) issued by the State Uni versity. "Oontinued grain onlture un. der shallow preparation over a long period has seriously affected the natur ally low humus supply of the grain lands of California; This condition has been rendered worse by the-burning of the straw and biennial oulture neces sitated by a limited rainfall. HLumuus in ample quantity in a soil means suc cess'; it~s lack means disaster, and this is p...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

wOEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosine.'.") A disquisition on colors,-such as you will do well to keep for standard roler once. Some people hlave the artistio eye, they can tell color at a glance. What I wish to emphasiso is the conm bination of colors, also their assocla tion. To simplify things I should istart with the primaries. 'lThese are red, yel low and onue. 'the secondary colors are orange (red combined with yeiow), green (yellow combined with blue), vio let (blue combmined with red). Then there are the grey colors-yellow grey (orange combined with green), red grey (orange comibined with violet), blue grey (viblet combined Wite green). eaon coldi hasi its complementary color, and when these two are placed side by side, each appears at its greatest briiancy. The simplest divisions of the speotrumn show the following three pairs of con plementa;ry colors-red and green, yel low and violet, blue and orange.

EXPERT ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

EXPERT AWVICE. A man ri'as denouncing newspaper ad. rertising to a criowd of hsteners. "Last week," said he, '"I had an umn brella stolen from the place provided for them by the side of my church pew at church. It was a gift; and. valuing it very highly, I spent doubeic its worth in advertising, but 1 have flot recovered it." ? ' "How did you word the advertise. llellt???" asked a merchant. "Here i·t is," said thie rman, pro ducing a slip cut from a nosewspaper. The merchant took it and read: "Lost from -- Chuirch Inst-Scrundar .,oning, a black uuibrella.

MODERN CHIVALRY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

MODERN CHIVALRY. The word "ohivalry" has no menu ing inl the industrial world. The wo men who enjoy the chivalry of men aroe few, those who need justice are many, and. it is obviously unfair that the many should-suffer for the advan tage of the few. True chivalry is extremely rare, and -there has never been enough of it in the world to make it wortle while to give up rights for its sake. The man who opens the doo: for his wife, and makes his income from sweated women's labdr is polite. The brother who carries his sister's parcels yet does nothing t prevenmt bther wo men from arrying back-breakling loaends in the briekfields has good man ners. The man who escorts a girl home at night yet can see unmoved the ghastly parade of .the women men de mand for their pleasureis conventional They ard none-of them elhivalrous, and to call-them so shows how 'far we are from attributing to the word its real Ineaning.

LIMITATIONS OF THE SPIRIT. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

L1MITATIONS OF THE SPIRIT. SThere is always something comic in the attitude of men, who, walking for ward themselves, have their eyes fixedl upon the past, and who, hs their at tention is turned backwords resent 't bitterly when they bark their own shins. We are living in a present rapidly de veloping irto a future, where these .i mitations of women's sphere for. the great majorityof women, have become by the present conditions of the race, comic in their impossibility. We can not, howevrer beautiful and desirable the past may appear ~to men go bnok wvards, and in all this criticism on wo men's dresses, why this silence on the decollete skimpy, transparent, volumin ous, trailing, microbe collecting gar ments of the past? Surely the Press should hasten to give women votes, if only out of gratitude for the enormous amount of copy our sex provides. Look a little deeper, you dear reactionary, polarised by the past, and you will find that never has tlhe working woman, who is gradually be...

Manners of the English [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

Manners of the English - The manners of the English are, ot courso, notoriously bad, whether they live in the country or in the town; but I do not thnik that any one olass is worse than another. On the whole, I am inclined to agree with Mr. Ste-. phcn Reynolds and with Mr. Chsster ton. that the poor are more ceremonial and courteous than the rich. They are nlt,jt is true, gifted with the gra ciounness of the Splniard or the Bre ton peasant; English nmeehanics or labeurers do not struggle with their bag of. tools held in their hands, in ord:r -to take off their cap to their. fell.e-w-orker and. to bid--him" "good morning," as one sees workmen do on the Danish highroad. Nor can they refu:se a tip-a rare- occurrence, I ad mit-with the graoliousness of the Frenlch workmen who helped Steven son with his canoe on his Inland Voy age.-F. E.
