PORT OF POMPEII UNEARTHED. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
PORT OF POMPEII UNEARTHED. After lying hidden since those awfui days in the y.ar 79 A.D. irhen Pom poii was deetroyed and huried by a great eruption of Vesuvius, the ancient narbar cf the port has just been dis covered. So many thousands of British tour ists have passed through the ruins of the buried city itself that they. will easily recognise the position of the new discovery when it is found that It. lies somn 700 yards along the road out side Porta Marina, and therefore about 1500 yards inland' from the seashore of to-day. How it came to be found is an inter. esting story. The late celebrated Ro man sculptor, Lorenzo Cozza. who was also noted as a classical scholar devot ed his latter years to this sear:ch, im pressed as he was by .the great mer cantile importance which ancient writ ers unanimously attributed to the Pom peiian port.. On his deathbed Cozza bequeathed his studies to his son, urging him to follow up the buried road leading sea wards from the old marine gate of the...
PANAMA CANALS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
PANAMA CANALS. Speaking at a dinner held by the London U1amber of Commerce, Senlor Perez Triand 'Chargo d'Affaires for the Republic of Salvador, told those pres ent that "since the days of Columbus there had been numerous projects for building a canal, but there was suo route in existence, of which one heard nothing -it was, there for the day when the requirements of trade and commerce would be so large that two canals would be needed The route he referred to was the Atrato River, which flowed into the Gulf of Uraga. quite close to the Isthmus of Panama. It was a perfectly navigable River, and its upper reaches. were comparatively near to the Pacific littoral. The site had been studied by a well knowr engineer, who stated that this route would be considerably cheaper than the Panama Canal.- 1u manity would so progress both materi- ally and morally that the day would come when both canals would be free and open to the whole world.-Tropi cal Life."
YET ANOTHER CAT STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
YET ANOTHER CAT STORY. To the several highly interesting cat stories to which you have already ac corded the .widely extended publicity of your columns, I would like to add another (writes a correspondent to "T.P's.' Weekly.") When living in the Midlands, we shadd:as a household pet, a fine tortois shell cat -which had been with us iron, kittenhood'. Out of a numerous yield of kittens, not one had resembled its miother, and while they were sum marily disposed of, she who had given them birth-was retained, and kept the house and premises- clear of vermin. After several years, she appeared. to' be suffering from toothache, evidence of which was forthcoming in a swollen face, always on the same side of tae face, and which interfered with her pleasant facial appearance, as I have' seen the case-with human beings under --similar circumstances. When suffer. ing from these attacks, by her pitiful look up into our faces she seemed to appeal for the help we could not at ford, but we assured ...
STORING OF WINTER VEGETABLES. (Minna A. Stoner, Prof. Home Economics, N.D. Agri. Col.) [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
* STORING OF WINTER VEGE TABLES. (Minna A. Stoner, Prof. deomo Econ omics, N.D. Agri. Col.) The storing of winter vegetables is economical and desirable. In the fall enough vegetables go to waste from the average farm garden to supply the table during the entire winter. The task of storing is not difficult if one has a knowledge of the oonditions best suited for storage, and is willing to perform a small amount of labour. A dry well aired not too dark, frost proof room, cellar or sodhouse" will servo the purpose. The most favour able temperature is not over 50 degrees Fah. Celery, cabbage and sweet po tatoes should be stored in the coolest part of the room. Racks should be adjusted on which to place the storage boxes or barrels. Tnis avoids the dangers of overheating, excess mols ture, and prevents decay. All veget ables should be gathered before the frost, sorted, dried thoroughly before packing. For long storing, reserve those of most perfect formation and firm textured. Each root...

FOOLING THE MISSUS. A very lazy man was asked by his wife to dig the potatoes in'the garden. He consented, and after 'digging for a few minutes went into the house, re marking that he had found a coin. He put it in his pooket and went back to work. Presently he returned to the house, saying ?e had found another coin, which' on .being washed- turned out to be a two-shilling piece. He put this in his pocket. " I have worked pretty hard," said he to His wife, "I thinkI'll 'take a short nap." When he awoke heofound that his wife 1I dug the remainder of the potatoes. but she had found no coin.

BLIND, BUT EXPERT DAIRYMAN [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
BLIND, BUT EXPERT DAIRYMAN A remarkable personality is the sub ject of a sketch sent by a correspond ent to the "Glasgow Herald" Mr Matthew Mitchell, whose brother is thi tenant of a farm in Scotland, despite the fact that he had been deprived- 1 sight at a very early age, is to be found daily attending to the stock on the farm, with a measure of success wh!ch would rebound to the credit of one en dowed with all his'faculties. When 5 years ald, Matthew had the misfortune to lose his sight through an acoident brought about while at play. After a short course of instruction in the Asylum for the blind; Glasgow, he returned to his home, Ridden LHarm, near Galston, of which his father, the late Mr Mat thew Mitchell, was then tenant. With marvellous aptitude, he applied himself to the work of tending to the dairy stock. Twenty-nine years ago( tihe family removed to Ballaird, Balfron, a large oropping and dairy farm. Some 50 cows in milk were kept, and almost without exception, they were ...
ENSILAGE—THE FAVORITE FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
ENSILA?E ?HE: FAVORITE FODDER. (By "Agriculturalist" in "New Zealand Dairyman.") That the feeding of cows is one ot the most' important' hatters 'connected with dairying, no one can gainsay, I ut of the many foods in general use, 1 will at present touch on only on-ensl age. No argument, to my mind, could be adduced against the 'use ot ensilage, and any contention: to justify the' setting aside of fodder of such para mount importance would - not hold ground in the face of practical experi ence on the dairy farm. Ensilage contains no substance that would in .U,_y way tend to interfere with the oliad isms of the cow, while it contains .o little acid that its color is not obiec tionable. It can be made when hay cannot, and even this is an important point, especially in Southland and Tar anaki where the weather is so variable. It may not supersede hay-making, b s that is probably because of the variety of uses which the colonial farmer puts hay to. Regarding the preparation ot ensilage, ...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
OF' RIREL INTEREST (By "tRusticus.") Wheat is so much in evidence just now that it isi n accordance with the fitness of things that this column should be devoted to it this week. It is stacked in mountains at the railway stations in the-centres of the cereal-pro ducing areas; it is taxing the special facilities provided for its conveyance to the seaboard, and is creating bu.y scenes at the wharves. It is literally a golden stream that is to bring in re turn a stream of gold. But in the midst of the satisfaction that everybody must feel at the garner ing of the good harvest, the attention directed to how much better it might have been is not out of place. It is in no spirit of complaint that this is emphasised. Nature has, this year, on the whole, been kind to us. There are, of course, some local;ties in whiol; conditions have not been as favorable as could be wished, but taking things "full and by" the season has been boun tiful. That our farmers have not all --or vyen a respectable...

TURF TOPICS. (By "Flemington.") There could be no doubt of tLe stable's confidence in Wallalo. 1lle plungers connected with ,the Wallace gehliing put the money down as if theca was no such thing as s;'tthing day to ii u:ider d.

CROSS-LEGGED HABIT. PERSONS WHO SIT CARELESSLY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 30 January 1914
CROSS-LEGGED HABIT. PERiSONS WHO SIT CARELESSLx. Fully fU per cent. of travellers by tramway car and omnibus sit cross tegged. That is the opinion of a cor respondent who has taken - particular notice of his fellow passengers, . Thie cross-legged habit when you sit down is provocative of grave harm to n, body. Indeed. iri time, a Lon don dortr who told "The Daily Mir ror," it produces vricose veins if the person regularly adopts this and no other attitude. '"The objection I see to the habit," he said, "is that the return fow lo blood from the leg Is stopped at the knee, the result being that the veins in the leg swell up. "All the weight is. thrown upon one side of the body, and the under leg 'goes to sleep' dwing to the pres sure put on the sciatic nerve. The body should be equally balanoed. "There is another danger I ought to point out. If you sit cross-legged you become lop-sided. "Personally I never do' this. I always let the legs rest limply--stretch ed out is just as good. The...
