PRAYERS OF THE HORSE TO HIS MASTER. To Thee, My Master, I offer my prayer : Feed me, water me, and care for me, when the day's work is done provide me with shelter, a clean, dry bed, and a stall wide enough for me to lie down in comfort. Always be kind to me. Talk to me. Your voice often means as much to me as the reins. Pet me sometimes, that I may serve you the more glad ly and learn to love you. Do not ;erk the reins, and do not whip me when going up hill. Never strike, beat or kick me when I do not understand what you want, but give me a chance to understand you. Watch me, and If I fail to do your bidding, see if something is not wrong with my har ness or feet. Do not check me so that I cannot have the free use of my head. If you insist that I' wear blinkers so that I cannot see behind me as it was in tended I should, I pray you be care ful that the blinkers stand well out from my eyes. Do not overload me, or hitch me where water will drip on me. -Keep me well shod. Examine my t...

CEMENT IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 February 1914
CEMENT IN THE DAIRY. In our visits among the dairy farms, the creameries and the cheese factories it is gratifying to note the increasing t tendency to use cement and concrete construction. It does not only show that those who em ploy this class of construction , have an eye to durability, efficiency and economy, but it indicates a perman ency attached to the business that was less prevalent not many years ago. Then a dairyman built a shack for a barn, with dirt floors, and no provision for drainage. His dairy house was a flimsy shed. He figured that this kind of construction, un sanitary, cheap and flimsy as it was, would last him a few years, by which time he hoped to be fortunate enough to be out of the business. Have you ever noticed that it is the class of people who think like this that have to stay in it the ' longest whether they choose to or not ? The dairyman with the right idea of economy, and who wants satisfac tion and good service, goes in for cement construction. He k...

THE FARM. WHY GIRLS LEAVE THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 February 1914
THE FARM.. WHY GIRLS LEAVE THE FARM. So much has been said about why boys leave the farm, but how about the girls ? What right has a girl on the farm ? In many cases, none at all, you might say. If she wants to go to a party or dance she must ask father or mother; and what will they say ? No ! And how do you think she feels if she hears of other girls going, and after they get back she hears them talk of the good times they had. I think' after a girl gets to be eighteen or nineteen her parents should allow her to go out with her girl and boy friends to parties or wherever there is a social gathering. Of course, in some towns there are boys, and girls as well, that parents would not want their girls to keep company with, but this isn't always the case. And how are. the girls treated about the farm work? They. must do all the house work, all the scrubbing, baking, washing,' ironing, and work in the garden, besides milk ing the cows, hauling hay, cleaning the cow barns, hauling manure,...

Open-Sea Bathing. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 February 1914
Open-Sea Bathing. The question of providing open sea bathing, in a regular way, was discussed at a special meeting of the council on Thursday. It has long been countenance'd" that a large number of visitors will con tinue, though warned frequently to:. bathe in certain parts of the beaches, which are well known to residents as extremely dangerous. This the council desire to obviate and' it is not improbable that special parts of the _beach will be closed for bathing.: T~he disposition of councillors is to prohibit bath ing in. that part -between the mili tary flow pipe at the end of Hesse street and the borough flow pipe at the end of Stevens street, and to ap-ply to Government for the use of the old searchlight pit at the end of Hesse street, that it may be used as a dressing-room for ladies, whose part of the beach for bath ing will be to the east of the pipe, and others to bathe, if they so pre fer, further along the beach, to the west of the borough pipe. This, it must be unders...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 February 1914
TH..; hot weatther during the past week takes us back, in thought, to tl, season .of .six years ago, when: Queensciiff was very full of visitors during the whole period. The heat at that tjine. was initense, and people flocked to this salu brious spot in anticipation of some. little respite from the hot weather. Nor. were they disappointed, for if there is one place before another which can help; the weak to tolerate. intense heat and the. strong to, enjoy it, it is Queensc!iff and its immediate surroundings. We do not say. this bogstfully, but is duly acknowledged by 'isitors from. many parts who are authorities. The baths was. an evidence of the year particularly mentioned, and the bathkeeper, even now, alludes to the great number. who passe.d through his hands on one of the hottest days. six years ago. ' Over a thousan~i bathers that d'ay.,,. he says with a degree of pride, and the same may be the case before the present season is, at an end. Many of us hope not, perhaps; but the...
SOME HEALTH PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 February 1914
SOQOME HEALTH PROVERBS. "'An open window is better than an open grave.' "Warm rooms have killed more peo ple than ever froze to death." - "Wire screens in the windows may keep crape from the door." "A fly in the milk often means a member of the family in the grave." "If some people were as much afraid of flies as. they are of bad water, there would be less typhoid."
