Every morning at noon, weather permitting—and at Southbourne wea ther generally did permit—an easy rolling batli-chair, -well-sprung and pneinnatic-tyred, arrived at Bellevue House for Sirs. Price, and for the rest Airs. Price found it pleasant on the comfortable sofa In the bow-wimlow, from which she commanded a pano ramic view of the sea and passers by. It was pleasant, also, contribu ting to peace of mind and so to con valescence, to have meals well served and regularly, without having to or der or to consider expense.

"A GRATE VICKTERY.' A Wiltshire farmer is just at present rather sore over the loss of some fine apples. It is not, perhaps, the actual , vnluo of the fruit which annoys him so much but the circumstances under which it was purloined. Ho was the owner of two adjoining orchards,, and was a terror to all the local juveniles who possessed a fond ness for fruit acquired by stealth. Looking from one orchard to an other 011 a recent afternoon, he dis cerned a small boy shinning down a tree, laden" with fruit, lie shouted n warning 111 the direction of a pair of legs hanging from a brunch laden with a splendid crop of codlins, and made 'off.

HOBBIES GIVE ME THE PIP [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 30 January 1914

HOBBIES GIVE ME TI-IE PIP Hobbyitis is worse than appendi citis, neuritis, or any other "itis." These can be eurcd, but hobbyitis is r malady beyond the surgeon's knife or the doctor's medicine. It is ex cessive inllannnalion of the possessive faculty. It grips you, grows on you, over you and in you, until life is a burden to yourself and others. It creates sel fishness, waste,s one's life, ruins one's pocket, and, after all, "what has been achieved:' Simply this; that some ob jects which before were scattered have been painfull^ collected in a heap. Yet parents arc seductively urged by certain scribes to sec that their chil dren have a hobby. Are the writers stamp dealers, fretwork tool makers, rabbit and guinea-pig dealers? You try hard to prevent your child catching hobbyitis, knowing not only that prevention is better than euro, but that there is no cure. Then lie catches it through the "Lad's "Weekly,' or even, alas! your own favorite pen nyworth. His"1,bachelor iinclc conies a...

NELSON'S CHAPLAIN. The "Death of Nelson is a scene well known to all—the dimly-lighted cock- i pit, the dying hero, and Captain Har- | dy listening to his Admiral's last or- i dors.

Scott was a man of the world, intelligent, tactful, and a wonderful linguist, who had spent half his life afloat, and was highly esteemed by the Admiral.

USE FOR FALLOW LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 30 January 1914

] USE FOR FALLOW LANDS. It is questionable if one non-fallow ing wheat-groiver could be found in any part of Victoria. Not only so, but also every part of the fallow and four course rotation system, combined with sheep-keeping, is being steadily adopt ed. The cleanness of the crops this year, and freedom from wild o'-its, sor rel, and other weeds (speaking gener ally, of course, because there are still a few exceptions) are noticeable as a direct outcome of the improved agri culture. The importance of "work ing the fallow" is no longer doubted, and the instances are increasing in which fattening fodder for the sheep is being grown on the fallow, thus sav ing the one-time loss of a y«:r under the bare fallow system, while keeping the land in heart by an annual nitro genous re-fertilisation of the soil.
