HOSTAGE CITIES. M. MAETERLINCK'S SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915
HOSTAGE CITIES. MAETERLINCK'S SUGGESTION. Jii the Paris "Figaro" Maurice Mae terlinck, tlie distinguished Belgian writer, makes the interesting sugges tion that, in view of the German army's vandalism, the principle of hostages should be extended from individuals to cities. Here are his words: '' To my certain personal knowledge the Grand Place, .the Hotel de Ville, and the cathedral of Brussels are min ed, aud only a spark would be required to reduce these marvels-the work of centuries of patient labor and love to nameless ruins. We have sacrificed all without a murmur, bnt this would surpass everything. What is to' be done, How can we stay their hand? They seem no longer to be amenable to reason, or to any of the sentimeiits which men hold in honor. They only seem sensible to blows. We shall soon have the power, and they must realise it, to strike them hard." "Why should not the Allies, from this day forward, while there is' yet time, nominate certain hostage cities which will ans...

MANICURED TOMMY. '* I'-TO-DATJC MIL1TABY HOSPITAL METHODS. "Diil you get huij,t in tho hands too!" a maa asked an English soldier just out of the war hospital. "No," he said, and then breathing on the back of his fingers rubbed his nails upon the kahki 'sleeve of his other arm. "What's the matter with them, then " his questioner went on; "they look funny to me, somehow.'' The wounded man spread- out his two hands palm down, with the fingers spread wide apart. His finger-nails glowed liko 2)ink opals. "There's nothing the matter with them," he said, "only they've been manicured. The nurse does it. 'Shock ing fingers,' she says, 'for a young man to go about with.' So she fetches a bowl of soapy water and a bos of tools and this is what she done to them-not half bad, I don't think. It's some pol ishing paste she put on- that makes them so shiny. You can take it from me, it's the most wonderwul up-to-date hospital in the world. They don't half make a good job of you.

GROW BEEF, DON'T MAKE IT. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915
GROW BEEF, DON'T MAKE IT. Good herdsmen agree that a cair should never be allowed to lose any | of its first flesh, and that loaa due to | a halt or retrograde step is difficult to regain. Many stock raisers, however, think the calf not worth bothering about, and' postpone the special care and attention it should receive while young to a later date, but a time when it will not be transformed into as many pounds of flesh as during the first .six months- of the calf's life. However, a good root acreage, a high silo well filled, lots of clover hay and chop, and a liking for stock will combine to grow beef that will be very acceptable to the hungry multitudes. Autumn calves are not as common as they should be where the herd is maintained for dual purposes, but any that come along at this season of the year should re ceive particular care, for they will bo worth a fair price for beef iu the next few years. Any normal calf consumes a large ? quantity of milk when obtained natur ally from ...
COURT MANNERS IN THE COW BARN. A LITTLE SARCASM FROM THE "CHICAGO HERALD." [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915
COURT MANNERS IN THE COW BARN. A LITTLE SARCASM FROM THE "CHICAGO HERALD." Speak kindly to the gentlo cow, and never, never tea6e her; Take off your hat, politely bow, do all you can to please her. Be sure your hands have been washed clean; be sure your nails avo cur ried ; More milk is drawn from cow serene, than from the cow that's worried. -Mother Gosse's Modern Maxims for Milkers. "Kicking the cow has not been good form for some time in even moderately advanced dairy circles," says the "Chi cago Herald,"" though tha ban upon it probably originated more in practical than in humane considerations. Pain ful experience warranted the- conclu sion that the: cow thus approached was far more likely to kick the milker through the side of the barn. "jOf late years, the cow barn code of manners and niora^ has developed rapidly from the negative to the posi tive style-from 'thou shall nots' to 'thou s'halts.' It has been discovered that the eow. long the poet's live stock emblem of placidit...
DRYING OFF DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915
DRYING OFF DAIRY COWS. Different farmers have varying views as to how long a cow should bo dry, but .generally speaking, from six to twelve wec.ks is agreed 'upon. The former period, is probably too short a rest, and twelve weeiks too lengthy for an average milker; the latter period, however, is certainly not too long for a cow giving a large yield of milk, and she will amply repay for the rest when she comes in again. On* the other hand, six weeks is quite sufficient for a poorer milker. The reason for drying off cows is to give them a. period of rest, so that they can recuperate from the strain which the yielding of a large supply of milk has placed upon them, and also enable them to better nourish the unborn calf. To dry a deep and persistent milker is not difficult. "When it is time to commence drying the cow, ex perienced men start by not milking her quite dry at each milking, and gradual ly leaving a little more in the udder at each succesive time. A cow usually gives only wha...
THE BANANA AS A WORLD-POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 February 1915
THE BAMA AS A WORLD POWER. In a lecture on "Tropical Vegetable Foods," delivered at the New York Botanical Garden, and afterwards pub lished in the official journal of tho garden, the lecturer, Mr H. H. Ilusby says:-"Of all the tropical vegetable foods, indeed most important of al! vegetable foods, is the banana, des tined to become eventually tho chiei food of the poorer classes of the entire world. The ripe banana, while a. de licious fruit, is not adapted to use as a common food, by virtue of its strong and sweet flavor, and also its relative indigestibility. The same fruit, how ever, boiled1, baked or roasted, when about three fourths grown, has very much the flavor of a baked potato, with scarcely any sweetness, and is nutri tious, non-cloying, and perfectly di gestible. The amount of this food that can be grown on an acre per year is so much in excess of any other as to make any comparison with other crops rather ridiculous."

BULK HANDLING OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915
BULK HANDLING OF WHEAT. The Minister for Agriculture, Mr. fcTutchinson, received a deputation from the Chamber of Agriculture, which dis cussed the question of the inquiry into the bulk handling of wheat. The Rev. Wood and Mr Mcliob'in of Bendigo ad dressed the Minister. They said they had been waiting for some announce ment of the intentions of the Govern ment, and when the Canadian export would arrive in Victoria. They were anxious because nothing had been heard about the matter for some time. They urged the Government to proceed with the enquiry without delay. Other members of the deputation spoke in a similar strain. In reply the Minister read a letter from Mr J. P. Jones, the Canadian expert, who had been engaged, in which he said1 lie had been engaged in Can ada. on urgent business connectod with his department, and also in collecting and grading seed wheat for the drought areas of Western Canada,- and also in selecting seed wheat for New Zea land.

LIFE AND NITRIFICATION OF THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915
LIFE AND NITRIFICATION OF THE SOIL. There are two great processes going on continually in the soil which arc known to be due to the activeness of bacteria: (a) The conversion of ammo nia and other compounds containing nitrogenous fertilisers, into nitrate, the only form in which, so far as we know, plants can utilise the nitrogen; (b) the utilisation of free nitrogen of the atmosphere by leguminous plants. Both these processes are greatly faci litated by the presence in the soil of a sufficiency of lime. The soil is not an inert mass of mate rial containing certain mineral sub stances which plants utilise. It is full of living organisms. Besides the num erous insects, worms, etc., it contains myriads of low organisms not visible to the naked eye, but capable of ex amination by the aid of the microscope. They are known as bacteria or micro organisms., and are BO minute that a grain of soil may contain many thous ands, increasing' and propagating under favorable conditions with incred...
MILK AND WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 February 1915
MILK AND WATER. It is generally agreed that cows pro ducing a large amount of milk require more water than cows of the same weight and aro light milkers. A test was made with two cows at an Ameri can experiment farm, and it was found that a cow producing an average of 2i gallons of milk daily consumed nearly 8 gallons of water, while a stall mate, producing 1A gallons of milk a day, consumed four gallons of water. in this ease the consumption of water was approximately in the same ratio as the production of milk. The ration was identical for both animals', with the exception that the larger producing cow consumed more grain and grass than the other. INTERESTING COMPARISONS . Professor O. H. lickles, in his book on "Dairy Cattle and Milk Produc tion," gives the record of the cow "Chief Josephine." On the 28th day after calving, this Holstein cow pro duced 10 gallons of milk, and she con sumed on that day 23 gallons of water. On the 31st day after calving she pro duced 10gallons of mi...

-RECIPES. To Bottle Green Peas.-Shell and trash the peas, and then boil them for three minutes is slightly-salted water. Then rinse in cold water, and put them immediately into jars with screw-tops. Put a teaspoonful of sugar into each jar, and then fill them nearly to the top ivith cold water, to which a small quan tity of salt has been added. Seal down the jars, and put them in a large sauce pan, packing them round with hay or straw to keep them from bumping to gether. Pour in sufficient cold water to cover the jars; heat the water quickly, and then let it boil fast for .1% hour. If the peas absorb some of the water in the jars it does not mat ter.

Deputation Pees. COUNCILLORS' TRIPS TO MEL BOURNE. LETTER FROM PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT. At the council meeting of the Phillip Island and Woolamai Shire on Monday, the following letter was reaii from the Public Works Department; - " With reference to the recent audit of your books, attention is drawn to re marks of auditor regarding the arriount of £52 10s incurred for deputations during the year, which certainly'seems rather high. In regard to the disallowance of £12 12s for deputation fees on account of railways, it is considered that this amount should be refunded to the Municipal account from the Railways Trust fund.
