Our Vacant Spaces. CLOSER SETTLEMENT BLUNDERS. [Contributed.] [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
Oisr Vacant bases. Closer Settlement Blunders; [Contributed.] To Victoria the matter of closer settlement is of such supreme importance that any members of -the House of Assembly who may have become unusually ex cited in discussing it must be pardoned. The State is spending millions of money in buying big estates to be cut up into allot ments suitable for the small hold er ; it is advancing other millions to those small holders to put them on their feet. This policy, if su: eessfully carried out, means the peopling of our vacant spaces and the -lasting prosperity of our rather overgrown cities. However, the committee ap pointed to inquire into the mat ter issued a report which has filled many members of Parlia ment and many of the public with dismay. We are told that good land has been bought at too high a price, that so much pcor land has been purchased that the would be settler has left, thousands of acres of it on the broad backs of the taxpayers, that many of the settlers them s...
HIS SUGGESTION [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
H]£> SUGGESTION By tlio restaurant pay-desk 6tocd the manager, greeting each outgoing and I incoming guest with a seraphic, mana gerial smile. Tho smile grew broader, and, if pos sible, sweeter, as an elderly gentleman, looking well led and comfortable, ap proached to pay his bill. When lie iiad col looted his change ho turned and noticed tho beaming manager. "By tho ■way," said lie, "you say on your hills of fare that you are always glad to receive suggestions from cus tomers as to any possible improve ments that occur to them." "That is so, sir—that is so!" an swered tho smiling one. "Have you any suggestion you wish to make?" "Well-—or—yes, I have. You state that you inako your own sausages in this establishment, do you not?" "That is correct", .sir—we do!" "Well, then, I would suggest that you let someone else do it. Good morning I" A woman can put more meaning into a' noto of exclamation than a man can pack intp a Behtenc®, , ; l
FEEDING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
FEEDING CALVES. Clover hay is tlie best to keep before the young calf as soon as it will begin to eat. Pea and oat hay is also good. When the calf is four or. live months old a littlo lucerne may be given, but pare should be taken not to feed too much, as there is danger of the lucerne causing scours. To raise calves with out any skimmilk is not very^satisfac tory, although there are some good calf meals on the market, but will not take the place" of skim-milk entirely. It „has, been suggested that after a calf is two or three weeks old, a bean soup may bo. given, •which is prepared as followsParboil the beans in soda, then drain off the water and boil again until soft; squeeze, through a colander and add salt until the soup lias a de cidedly brackish tasto. Then stir in somo pollard and linseed meal, and add lukewarm water until each calf receives about three quarts of the mixture. Of course tlio amount to bo given will vary with the different calves. When calves are raised on this...
THE COMING MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
THE COMING MISSION. On Thursday next, February 26, Mr Thos. Hagger and Mr and Mrs Will H. Clay will arrive in Boort to make final preparations for the great Gospel Tent Mission which is to commence on Sunday, March 1.

Successful Hagger Clay missions were held in Swan Hill, Mildura; Northcote, St. Armud, Warrnambool and other towns in Victoria during ihe past twelve months. 1 Owing to the kindness of Mr Edward Weaver, the site on which the gospel tent is to be erected is the three-cornered block in the centre of Godfrey St., Boort.
APPLE EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
APPLE EXPORTS. Fruitgrowers, who export apples to Europe, will be interested in some sta tistics .compiled by Mr Thos. Boss Walker, regarding the'actual results of shipments made last season from Tas mania, under ■ the private marks of individual' orchardists. The opera tions of 20 small growers, ranging in quantity, from 111 to 803 cases, and aggregating 6&lt;100 cases for the season, gave a net return on Hobart wharf of 0/10 to 9/9 per case. Sixty seven other growers exported between thorn 32,105 and their Individual average net re turn for the season on Hobart wliarf ranged from 3/9 to 5/9 per case. It must bo remembered that Tasmanian apples as a rulo do not sell in Europe at such high prices as those from the main land of Australia. This evidence tends to show that small lines of well selected and carefully-packed apples realise more money than the same class of fruit in largo quantities. Buyers apparently aro prepared to pay a con siderable jiremium to secure the wholo...
BARRAPOORT. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
BARRAPOORT. Harvesting operations are com pleted in this district. On the whole, the results have been very satisfactory, a number of farmers averaging nine bags per acre—an excellent yield, considering the dry winter that was experienced. Such results prove conclusively the im mense value of the dry weather farming principle, with the adop tion of early fallowing. This dis trict will yield profitable crops with a rainfall below the average. Stock is in good condition, sheep especially holding their own. There is a good supply of grass, but some of the dams are getting lathar low, noticeable mainly on the West Bnrrapoort side. The building trade is progressing just now, and new homesteads are in the course of erection. Dame Rumor says that wedding bells are likely to ring in the near future. On Sunday the Barrapoort Bap tist Church was. nicely decorated for the occasion of harvest thanks giving. The Rev. Nash conducted the service, which was enjoyed by an audience numbering about 10...
THE NEW FARMER. SCIENTIFIC ADVANCE [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
THE NEW FARMER. SCIENTIFIC ADVANCE If tha "transition of iigriculture' ..'which'is thought'to bo in progress is to. reach.- -tho more' intensive state dc . sired by reformers, it can only bo in duced 'by.the tanner. Landlords may lead and persuade, but the farmer's belief in the form of cultivation which pays him best is tho deciding factor. We have signs in plenty that tho farmer is advancing along the lines of scientific theory (says a correspon dent of the "London Times,"). On paper and in the abstract, the higher the farming the greater the profits .for all concerned. Tho ideal to aim at is that Danish farm, much visited—by* English Tanners and landowners, which yields an average profit of £4 an acre. It is clamied that a net in come of £20,000 a year is made from its 5000 acres. At the other end of the scale we may take a score of pro perties on English wolds . and heavy lands, as well as on Norfolk sands, which do not yield a profit of 5/ an acre or near it. In theory, grass i...

The /deceased gentlemon settled near Boort about 40 years ago, and was highly esteemed and respected by all. It can safely be S iTi that he had not. enemy, his quiet, un assuming character gaining friends for him everywhere. He was a great sport,-and took a keen inte rest in cricket, football, tennis, and all manly sports. On one occasion, when, the old L ngview cricket club was in existence, the Guy family were the only members of the team to turn up to do battle against Boort, and so well-did the whole family play that they gained a decisive victory." It is reported that in the early days of his settle ment the crop was taken off by Mr and Mrs Guy with...

Correspondence. REGARDING DUCK SHOOTING. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
Correspondence. [The columns of the "Standard" are open for discussion on any public matter, but the editor does not hold himself responsible for the opinions ex pressed by correspondents. "The editor will, however, reserve the right to excise any portion which may be of a personal or offensive nature, or to with hold it altogether if it is deemed unfit for publication. Correspondence for the welfare of the town or district is invited,—Ed.1 REGARDING DUCK SHOOTING. &lt; To the Editor? Dear Sir,—I visited the Boortt Lakes on the opening day of the duck season last week—which has been my custom for years past—and I must say that I never saw anything like the conduct of some of the so-called sports as I wit nessed there on that day. The first incident occurred between 1 and 2 a.m., when several shooters came on to Lake Lyndger and commenced biazing away at nothing. I am sure that they could not see anything to shoot, and it was a wonder that somebody was not hurt by the flying ...
TOO WELL KNOWN TO NEED AN "AD." [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
TOO WELL KNOWN 10 NEED AN "AD."' This idea that you have lived so long in town that everybody knows yon and you don't need to advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to advertising, indifference to doing business as it is done in this day and age, is what has enabled the catalogue or mail order houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convince the people of his section, and keep them convinced that his store is the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail order house. Of course he cannot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible, but he can keep an advertisement in his local paper, and see that it is cliangel thus keeping new bmgains continual.'/ befor the public. »le should also have a mailing list, and send out a circular letter at least once a month. Don't look upon your country newspaper as an object of charity. There is not a single country newspaper in the State, with, a general local circulation, ...

|hc |Joort ^tandiqd. AND OUAMBATOGKHERALD Thursday, February 19 We have been experiencing some extremely hot weather during the past three weeks, and there does not appear much sign of a change. The thermometer for days has ex ceeded the century mark, aud this week the readings were usually from 104 to 107 degrees daily. A cool change will be much appre ciated. The bowling green is a very popular spot during the hot nights, and large numbers of both sexes attend regularly every evening to watch the players at practice on the greens.

NOISELESS CITY STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 19 February 1914
NOISELESS CITY STREETS. There is coming into use in Germany a cheap and ready method of asphalting a stone-paved street which is showing good results. The space between pav ing blocks aro cleaned out to the depth of about an inch, and then a^ layer ol melted asphalt is ilowcd over tiio street surface, the di-ptlv of the layer being about cue inch. Ileiore it is cooled, sand is sprinkled on and the surlaoe is smoothed. At Frankfort a section ot tins kind is now laid, and it appoars to stand the wear remarkably well.. Should the method prove a success ri 1 general practice it will alford an excel lent means of deathming the noise of city traffic at a small expense. It is. quickly carried out, and it need no: stop tho circulation on narrow streets for any length of time. Moreover, ruoairs aro easily made.
