The Passing of the Poser [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914

The Passing of the Poser There arc no posers on the grand scale now. Uur musiocans have short hair and play golf. Authors cannot be distinguished from ordinary men. Art students are abandoning their amazing clcthes. Even poet.s have given up poetical looks, and instead of writing pretty fancies wor'ry us with poeoms of the outspoken natural school. Music is in tweeds, literature is in navy blue, and poetry is in a bowler hat. Apparently there is no chance of any return of -affectation. The world becomes more natural every day, and every hour some neglected pose dies a natural death. There are no, stairtling and picturesque figures. The glittering Whistler was the last of the artistic masters of pose, the last man willing to spend an 'hour before a looking-glass, the .last man-to use his own word-who could be called "'amazing." For now it is had form to be .amazing, and everyone is en-. pected to be as insignifioant as pos sible. The only affectation left is the affectation of being ...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914

HELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent.) Something like an American --inva sion has taken place in this city. At the theatres, most of the "turns" are supplied by people from that country ; ragtime has taken possessison of the homes, and the public places where mu sic is made; and the millionaire-con dueted baseball players have been loom ing large, not only as exponents of the game that is to the American what football is to the Australian; but as the lions of social and civic circles. But like the motor racing that was recently similarly "boosted," baseball failed to arouse any enthusiasm, and if the ob jet of bringing a big party of players who are said to receive annual " re tainers" running into many thousands of dollars, to this country, was, as al leged, simply to promote understanding, of and interest in the game, the men behind the movement are due for a lot of disappointment. Plenty of people went to see the games on the first day. Tuhey were certainly rewarded b...

Farm Notes [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914

Farm Notes Many fa-i-ners in America are using pulverised limestone to apply to their land to correct its acidity, but mew have put it to use in the stable. It has been with a more powerful chemical reaction was needed to abolishh stable odours and flies. Accordingly farmers have as sumed that the expense for such effort was beyond their means. It has been left to the leading horse commission firm of dNew York to bring to public attention the beneficial effects of cheap ground limestone in the stable. William Bradley has been using limestone dust in his stables where three hundred to five hundred work horses are kept, and when he obtained a controlling interest in the Piss, Doerr and Carroll Horse Co., .he introduced the limestone into the sale stables as well. This is the very. finest grade of. pulverised lime stone. It is scattered daily throughout the stables to dry up the floors, and consequently reduce the odour. It is also thought to reduce the number of flies. Many farmers co...

KILLARNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914

- KILIAARNEY. (From Our Correspondent). Threshing operations commenced here on last Monday. Two plarts, Porter Bros' and H. Long's being engaged for the past week have now completed the work. The average acreage under barley is the smallest for some years. Returns per acre are dissapointing, proba bly not more than an average of 35 bushels will be recorded, whilst last year the average was well up to '50 bushels per acre. Other locali ties report also small yields. It is believed that the barley crops of the state will be the shortest for some years. The quality locally is fairly good and very little barley will be disposed of unless prices improve considerably, 3s being the best offer yet. Providing that pri ces for bacon pigs remain as at pre sent growers can do far better than to sell at prices on offer at present. Farmers are now busily engaged potato digging, large quantities being sent to the Crossley railway station. Some nice crops are now being lifted, but prices still rema...

ANOTHER CAT MSTORY.?. To the anecdotes on cat sagacity ap pearing for the past few weeks in "T.P:'s" I- should like (writes a oor respondent) to add my testimony in the following plain and perfectly true incident, which came unaer my -notics when a boy. A large rat had taken up liis quarters in a dark corner under our kitchen stairs. lie soon became so bold as to come into the kitchen frequently, even though our cat might be there, which was either too well fed, or too cowardly, or both, to at tack it. One morning it oame into the -kit chen when both my mother and the cat were there' My mother uttered a shriek of terror, the rat beat a hasty retreat without beihg attacked by the cat, which- -iny mother straightway .abused : roundly, somewhat after -this :ftshion ;.

Household Hints To remove dust from ridges on the door panels, use a soft, dry nail brush. The Kitchen Table: If your kitchen table is not a good. color, dip a half a lemon in dry whiting and rub .the table with this the way of the grain. S4leave for about five minutes, then scrub and well rinse, and you will be delighted with the result. - To Clean Stone Steps.: The common method -.of cleaning them with hearth stone or :oaked whiting not only gives them a smeary appearance, but washes off with a shower of rain.

Trial of Simplex Scratching Board. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914

Trial of Simplex Scratching Board. At the Port Fairy races last Saturday afternoon, the most striking convenience for the public was an arrangement which showed the numbers of the horses com peting ih each race, the numbers of the scratched horses being hidden from view. It is the object of this invention to pro vide a simiple, cheap and efficient method of scratching horses. The general opin ion of all those in the enclosure on Satur day was that the demonstration was en tirely satisfactory. The machine was not 1seen at its best, as, owing to the unsuit - able and hidden position in which it was 1 erected, the large gathering on the flat t was prevented from taking advantage of the modern device, the numbers not being clearly seen at such a distance. The inventor is Mr R. Robertson, of 5 Macarthur, and he is to be complimented on the ingenuity displayed in the con struction of the machine, which should rapidly find its way on to the provincial racecourses. e A short description of ...

Women and the Church [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914

Women and the Church it is easy for a schoolmistress, to lose her sense of humour and propor tion and .to acquire an exaggerated -idea, of her own impdrtance, as, wrapt in her hiantle of authority, and seated -a.t her :large raised desk dominating rows of smaller ones, she wields des potic sway over a kingdom of young people. She is indeed monarch of all she surveys. And in that small aloof world, which sets the limits to .her life, it is easy for her to lose sight of .that bigger world which most of her pupils will presently enter, some few only passing into her own. It is easy for her to fall under the numb ing spell of the Machine, which has moulded her during the plastic years of 'early youth into the pattern ap proied by those majestic bureaucrats, men and- Womien, who control educa tion, and are apt to think that to them alone wisdom aid clearness of vision are vouchsafed. It is easy for her to be dazzled by the glamour of red tape and routine, for these clearly' de ':fine her...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosine.") A? disquisition on colors, such as you will do well to keep for standard refer Sence. - Some people have the artistic eye, the3y can tell color at a glance. What .I wisTi to emphasise is the com bination of colors, also their associa tion. To simplify things I should start with the primaries. These are red, yel ,low and blue. The secondary colors are. orange (red combined with yellow), green- (yellow combined with blue), vio let (blue combined with red). Then there are the grey colors--yellow grey '(orange combined with green), red grey (orange combined with violet), blue grey (violet combined with gieen). Each color has its complementary color, and when these two are placed side by sine, each appears at its greatest brilliancy. The simplest divisions of the spectrum show the following three pairs of com plementary colors-red and green, yel low and violet, blue and orange. A broader division gives the following pairs-red and bluish green, orange a...

Improvement of Poor Hill Pasture. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914

Improvement of Poor - Hill Pasture. There are few aricultural problems o0 more importance- at -the present time shan the improvement of the poor hill pasture, which forms such a large proportion of the total area ot the country (says the Mark Lane Ex press). How can this be done? The question is complicate bWy the facts that (1) the cost of imnprovement is often relatively great, owing to the inaccesability of the grazing; (2) in many cases, climatic -conditions -res triet not only the growth of herbage, but also the grazing season; (3) there are many distinct types of herbage dependent, doubtless, on soil, climate, and general conditions., It follows, from these considerations that the question is a difficult one from an economic standpoint; at the same time-according to the view expres sed in a recent Board of Agricultural leaflet No 275-there are large areas of fairly accessible poor hill pastures which are not as productive as they might be, or as they used to be with in quite r...
