THE INFLUENCE OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 24 September 1914

THE INFLUENCE OF CHILDREN. The motived to exertion furnished by the possession ol a family of chil li ren are us powerful a.; ever moved heart or hand. The secrct ol many a struggle and triumph l'.i life's battle may be found at home in the shape of ail infant in its mother's lap. The man who has children dependent 011 him will—must—struggle manfully, and bear up against the most adverse circumstances. The thought that the joy 01' their innocent young lives de pends upon Ilia eournge, Ilia persever ance, hi.-, energy—this thought will enable him to work wonders, to achieve what will appear impossibili ties to the man who has only his own selfish needs, his own selfish ambi tion, to urge him on.

The nearest approach to it is done bj the sheepbreeder, and in a less degree by owners of homes, cattle, poultry, etc. 10v, n the tlnanei?! institutions who gv.i large properties do not do it. in as thorough a maimer as, for instance, the larjje drapery or,tabii'jiimentn in a -lit*.

WHY MAN IS MORTAL. TIii-to is a strange tradition in vnNiie among ihc iJaehilntige tribe. in th<> ('ont;o.

THE COMING OF THE FOAL. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 24 September 1914

THE COMING OF THE FOAL. The foaling season will soon be around again, and sotue of the brood mares will bo heavy and need to bo worked with caution, those laying back a bit not needing as yet such special care, though, of course, they, even now, need to be managed In a common sense manner. An ordinary working mare is all the more likely to foal successfully if worked regularly up to the da to of foaling, or at least up to the time that It can be seen that the foaling is but a matter of hours. But the work pro vided such mare should bo well with in her strength; sho should not be given too long hours, and she should not be worked over rough hind. Neithor should tlu- mare anywhere near foaling bo yoked in tho shafts, nor backed nor abruptly turnod, and if she chances to Liu of peculiar tem perament it Ik generally wiser to hu mor her a little until the leal comes to hand. No mare should lie allowed to lose condition before foaling, and, if neces sary her appetite should be studied a l...

The Diabolic Mummy Case. AN EXTRAORDINARY STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 24 September 1914

The Diabolic Mummy Case. A.\ KXTRAORDINARY STORV. Everyone has heard of the maligu Egyptian mummy case which was brought to the British Museum some years ago, and whose presence dealt death and disaster to attendants and others who looked upon it. A story is now being told in well-Informed cir cles which is said to have emanated from one of the Museum authorities. From this it would appear that sev eral of the Museum attendants, con vinced that they were in danger of their lives, presented an ultimatum that tho coffin-lid must be removed from their vicinity or they would re sign. Their demand, was consider ed by the curators, and, in view ol the catalogue of calamities that somehow seemed connected with the mummy case, their demand was con sidered reasonable. A replica was accordingly made and painted in exact facsimile, and this was exhibited.to the public as the real thing, no outsider being any the wiser or the worse. The coOln Itself was deposited in an obscure cellar in the vau...

EARNING CAPACITY OF DAIRY HERDS. Two Eloquent Examples. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 24 September 1914

EARNING CAPACITY OF DAIRY HERDS. Two Eloquent Examples. To show how the earning capacity of different herds works out in actual practice, without taking extreme ci-ses, an experienced dairy farmer refers to the records of two herds of 40 cows. The first herd produced an average of 2671b. of butter-fat, and the lower herd gave only 1541b. of butter fat. The first herd returned a profit of £5 17/- per cow, and the second herd showed a profit of only 4/- per cow. The second herd would have to b milked for nearly 30 years to pro duce as much profit as the bettor herd produced in one year; or 1200 cows of I their capacity would produce only as much as the 40 good cows in one year. It may also be mentioned that ■10 good cows cost £300 for feed and labor for one yuar. The other herd would require to have xyOOO expend ed upon Uiem to produce the same am ount of profit. And yet there are some people who say thore is nothing gained by testing their cows. Others make the excuse that they have ...
