NELSON'S CHAPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 31 January 1914

NELSQN'S CHAPLAIN. The "Death of Nelson is n scene well known to all—the dimly-lighted cock pit, the dying hero, and Captain Har dy listening to his Admiral's last or ders. On the other side is a stooping figure in. black, less familiar, yet equally cherished by the great sailor— Dr. Scott, his secretary and chaplain. A fer.v years ago, some of the oldest inhabitants of Southminstcr (Essex) could still remember the "oivd parson," and whose "Nelson relics'' may still be seen in tho church vestry. Dr. Scott was a man of tho world, intelligent, tactful, arid n wonderful linguist, »vho had spent half his life afloat, and was highly esteemed by the Admiral. One of Nelson's theories was that every scrap of paper was worthy of study, that ho man put pen to paper without betraying something of his real knowledge or real intentions. Ho would thus keep Scott in the cabin of the Vic tory reading foreign gazettes, newspap ers, letters, and despatches in every Ian guago till exhausted nature com...

HOBBIES GIVE ME THE PIP [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 31 January 1914

HOBBIES GIVE ME THE PIP Hobbyitis is worse than appendi citis, neuritis, or any other "itis." These can bo cured, but hobbyitis is a malady beyond tho surgeon's knifo or tho doctor's mcdicine. It is ex cessive inflammation of tliq possessive faculty. It grips yon, grows on you, over you and in you, until life is a burden to yoursolf and others. It creates sel fishness, wastes one's lifo, ruins one's poeltet, and, after all, -ivhat lias been achieved? Simply this; that some ob jects which before wcro scattered have been painfullj collected in a heap. Yet parents are seductively urged by certain scribes to see that their chil dren have a hobby. Are tho writers stamp dealers, frotu'ork tool makers, rabbit and guinea-pig dealers? You try bard to prevent your child eatchimr hobbvitis. knowing not onlv tlint prevention is bettor than cure, but that there is 110 cure.

THE FARMER'S POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 31 January 1914

THE FARMER'S POSITION. How many of-the well-groomed, well fed people in the cities ever stop to think what would happen to thorn if the farmer should leave tho land, or to ask wlionoe came their daily bread? The only occasion on which they think of the farmer at all is when they scan their grocer's bill and conjure up vis ions of a. rapacious robber out on tho land, who in fiendish gleo is boosting tho cost of living. Tliey do not know, or if tliey do very often they do not care, that the man on tlio farm, at tlio mercy of flood, drought, pestilence, aild all tlio insect plagues of Kgypt, is patiently and industriously doing his' duty, and that very littlo of tho ulti mate price of his product finds its way into liis _purse. It would bo well if our cousins in town could see the man on . ■ tho land from a now and moro correct angle. Reverses may have their uses.

MIXING MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 31 January 1914

MIXING MANURES. In mixing manures, unless care and judgment nro exorcised,. much loss will result. If sulphato of ammonia en tore into a mixture, rio manure containing lime should bo put with it, as the am monia is thereby volatilised and lost. It is quite safo to mix it with super., guano, bonedust, kainit, and suljihata or muriate of potash, and it may bo added to stablo manure if an extra amount of nitrogen is desired. On no account must slag or lime come in di rect contact ■with it. These remarks apply equally to dried blood, blood and bone, or any organic nitrogenous ma nures. On tho other hand, nitrate of soda will mix with slag or lime. If it is desired to use sulphate of ammonia or blood and bono wlioro slag is used as the phosphatic manure, tho latter should be some three or four weeks - - beforo tho nitrogenous manure^ and harrowed in. On tho other hand, al though nitrate of soda will mix with slag, it is not advisable to sow tliem together, as the nitrogen is so extreme l...

NITROGEN FIXING PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 31 January 1914

NITROGEN FIXING PLANTS. Thp question often arises whether therd aro nay other plants besides tho great family of legumes that aro capable of acting either alono or with bacteria, and fixing nitrogen. Our knowledge in regard to this subject is as yet very incomplete. Some ex perimentalists have insisted that tho property of fixing atmospheric nitro gen is quito general among plants. It has been claimed to exist in wheat, oats, mustards, and a variety of other plants, including nlgae. The claims have been advanced that tho property is a general one, and tlmfc tho legumes only differ from other plants in that their power in this respcct is greatly comes from tho presence of tubercle bacteria in their loots. These conclu sions aro certainly not demonstrated, and aro quite generally discredited, There is practically no evidence for a belief in such a general nitrogen-fixa tion power, nor have wo any reason for believing that tho property of living in symbiosis with bacteria, and thus fix...

TO DESTROY SORREL. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 31 January 1914

TO DESTROY SORREL. Sorrel is si considerable nuisanco in many cultivation paddocks, and farm ers will bo interested in learning par ticulars as to tlio best means of destruc tion. South Australian wheat-growers have eradicated this weed by putting on sheep to ent the plants close to tho ground, after which tile land is well ploughed and tlio sorrel knocked about as much as possible with the barrows and cultivator during tlio hot weather. A Tasmanian farmer gives tho fol lowing helpful information ior its eradication:—"X can guarantee a prac tical clearance of tho rubbish it tho land is treated with limo and somo form of potash. Sorrel appears to como very strongly after using superphos phate tor several years, and tho root formation thickens and strengthens.

"A GRATE VICKTERY." [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 31 January 1914

"A GRATE VICKTERY." A Wiltshire farmer is just at present rather soro over tho loss of some fine apples. It is not, perhaps, the actual value of tho fruit which annoys him so much but tho circumstances under which it was purloined. Ho was tho 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 ono orchard to an other on-n l'Occnt afternoon, ho dis cerned' a small boy shinning down a tree, laden with fruit. He shouted a warning in the direction of a pair o{ legs hanging from a branch laden with a splendid crop of codlins, and made off. But the farmer was too speedy for the other raider. "Copped yer this time, yon young varmint," ho announced. "Come down 'ere." Thero was no reply. " 'Ear what I say? You're goin' to get n 'iding if I stop 'ere all night." Again no answer was vouchsafed. The farmer sat down on tho grass, lit his pipe, and waited lialf-an-hour. Then somebody brought him a not...

WAIL OF THE BANK CLERK MAN WHO SHOVELS SOVEREIGNS [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 February 1914

WAJL OF THE BANK CLERK MAN WHO SHOVELS SOVEREIGNS There is a common fallacy In the public mind that the bank clerk has a soft job, and an easy timo (says "One of Them" in "The Daily Express"). Tho tradition Is that he wears a morning coat and top hat, travels "first," leisurely strolls into tho pala tial portals of his business abode about 10 a.m., and leaves at 4 sharp. It will doubtless tako time to eradicate this traditional figure from tho public mind and put in its place the bank clerk as he really is—a hard-worked toiler whoso hoifrs arc long, and whose pay is generally quite inadequate to kcop un tho rpsnectabilitv exnected of him. It must be remembered that the small percentage of managerships and higher appointments are reserved, in most cases, for those who have friends at court—the court of directors. The ordinary young man, upon entering tho I service of a hank, can only look for- | ward to at least 40 years' hard labor. Jf he should reach the age of 65 ho may be permitt...
