Sprouted or Unsprouted Seed. There is nothing very no** In tho plan of allowing potato seed to sprout before planting, but there 1ms been little definite data concerning results available for the farmer. Thr Victorian Department has boon carrying out some very useful trials and a few facts aro available which arc decidedly interesting. In 190S, when the-trials began, sprout ed seed as compared with unspront ed showed an increase of production equal to £85 per acre from sum" varieties, while the whole field show ed an average of over four tons, or £'J8 per acre, the market price of potatoes being 7 per ton. The experiment was repeated in the son : son 1000-10, when the increase! ! yield from the sprouted seed was ! over two tons per acre, while for ■ the present sen.son the difference in favour of the sprouted seed varied [from -J to <>i tons per acre, fture. lv such results as these are enough I to make the fanner who persists ! in adopting the old plan pause and consi...

Profitable Ideas. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 5 February 1914

I Profitable Ideas. I A large fortune was realised lty I he inventor who patented the iden of mn.king umbrellas from alpaca instead of gingham, and Samuel Ko.v, the patentee of the improved paragon frame, left by will about £87,000 from the profits of hia in vention. Enormous sums have been reaped frntn the mechanical contrivances for carpet-henting, convrnlent boxes of various kinds for pocking goods, to say nothing" of those wonderful inventions connected with electri- | city and the manufacture of india rubber. Indeed, the patents on small nrtt cles have always been most lucra tive. The rubber tip at. tho end J of lend pencils has yielded well over [ £25,000. A largo sum was gained by the man who conceived the idea J of an inverted glass bell to hang over gas jets, nnd thus prevent the ceilings from being blackened, and the gimlet-pointed screw has been worth thousands of pounds. The inventor of the safety-match— or rather the prescient person who protected the idea—made n huge f...

Lawyers in the Making. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 5 February 1914

Lawyers in the Making. 1 It is usual for mosl Bur students as : well as members of the Bar, to .acquire the wily arts of advo cacy and .skill and cunning in the examination and cross-examination of witnesses, in amateur courts of justice, presided over by an ama teur judiciary. - These* inock courts of justice are provided by a society called "The Blue Itag," which has been foruted to. supply means by which not only law students, but: fully-fledged, waiting-for-a-brief barristers can be trained to conduct cases in practi cally similar circumstances and with the same procedure as in a real court of justice. The society, wlucli is very select, meets every week during the law sitting, and dialectical contests take placo upon small points of law. ■ The members then get to serious business, and nominate the judge for the evening, who takes his seat on the bench ami proceeds, with i judicial dignity, to hear supposi tious^ cases.

A Judicial Murder. * Of all the atrocities which stained the name of Austria during Ui<» ! liunfarian War. and brought down upon Iter" the execration of the civi lised world, none was su base and infamous as the judicial murder of Count Kutthynni, n. scion of one; of the noblest and most ancient of ' the Hungarian families.

WASTE LANDS [?] FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 5 February 1914

WASTE LANDS 01 FARMS. - -♦ If farmers generally were as cure less with their money as they are with their money's worth, then the amount , of interest would not be worth worrying over. Look at farms of gooil land that have a selling value of £20 to £30 per acre and it will l>e found that there are portions that are bringing in but a fractional part of what should bo returned, and are not paying current interest on a capital value of twenty shillings an acre instead of £20. On many im proved and old-fashioned farms there are areas that were at one time soft boggy swamps, but tor years past the swamps have been comparatively dry, yet no efTort is made to rid the surface of the rushes or the big tus socks. In the eyes of the owners the swamps are still swamps, although for years the surface has not held water. There is another source of loss in production on agricultural farms, and this is the amount of ground that is made unprofitable by reason of stack bottoms. Straw and hay stack...

CHAPTER XVII. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 5 February 1914

CHAPTER XVII. Two days passed, nnd Dr. TafCon was—figuratively—prostrate at the feet of two young women. Helen had' plunged with ardour into the work of assisting in getting up a fair for the purpose of establishing a school. What, wonders did these two girls not perform ! They rode about the coun try behind Monkey, and not only en listed the sympathies of many' who would not otherwise have cared whe ther the children of the poor were taught or not, hut had received sub stantial support in money. It had long been a pet scheme of Dr. Tafton to establish this school, hut he had had no enthusiastic assistance, and the duke could be induced to do no more than give his consent to the undertaking. But with Helen and Marion to push the project, he was on the sure road to success. But Helen and Marion found time to do other tilings as well.v They were sitting in Marion's cosy bou doir one day—the third of the visit reading letters just brought from the post. Marion had one from an old frien...

Marion Brooke lived no idle life. It must not bo supposed that her mornings were always at her dispo sal, even for so worthy a cause as that in which wo have seen her work ing side by side with good Dr. Taf ton. In the first place, Mrs. Brooke was far from well, and upon Mar ion's shoulders devolved most of the responsibility of the household. Most of the servants had remained when Mr. Brooke purchased the place from the tradesman, who had grown weary of residing in a neighbourhood where he was looked upon as nn fntcrlopcr. This was due to the animosity felt towards him by the duke, who visit ed upon his head all the wrath he felt towards his son for selling Marchraere to a stranger.

Barooga Water Trust Affairs. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 5 February 1914

Barooga Water Trust Affaira. A public meeting-was hold reoently at Berrigan (or the purpose of discuss ing matters in connection with the above Truat, and judging from remarks mado at the gathering (as reported in the "Advocate") it seems that there is a general desire.for more information, particularly as regards the assessment of land in the Trust's area, and other matters. At the outset it should bo stated that the meeting was not called in any antagonistic spirit to the Trus tees, but merely for the purposo of endeavoring to gain a wider knowledge of affairs, which desire is undoubtedly a proper and natural one, but nil the same statements wore made from which inferonces could be drawn that the Trustees were keeping the ratepayers in the dark. We hold no brief for these gentlemen, but from our own knowledge are able to say that tbey have never failed to givo any reason able information de9irod of thom re garding Trust matters, and instead of being secretive in any mutter they ha...
