FIVE RULES .FOE FQETVm 1. Cultivate and perfect your ideas, i Experiment. The world is eager fan ; something now, which, however simple ! it may be. will save labor, or expense, : or do tilings better. Lot it be more convenient, or promote pleasure-reduce ' '.vasts. People who handle things in every day use are the natural inventors, of better things, and the natural capitalists ^ of to-morrow. Head the splendid advice that Edison gives. Learn !he procedure as to pa- ! tenting in the chief countries,--then : secure your own legal monopoly i'or j your rights by becoming a patentee. ; 2.

RECRUITING IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
RECRUITING IN AUSTRALIA. Tlicrc are many estimable citizens of this favored land who cannot see their way clear to allow their sons to stand in defence of Empire. There may be in this an exhibition of careful consid eration for such sons; but it is unques tionably a poor exhibition of that spirit which should characterize every father and mother in this time of their country's trial. It goes without saying that our children arc our richest in heritance, and we should think little indeed, of any parent, who', with thoughtless appreciation of the situa tion, as for the mere matter of glory, would part with their stalwart boys? Sure enough, we have only too few Australians in Australia, and it may appear a suicidal policy to part with our virile manhood with a prospect of not seeing them again. But we have to look with both eyes wide open to day. Our laud is in danger; our trade is in a precarious situation; and in stant must be the action that will or can save it from disaster. It is ...
MILK AS A FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
MILK AS A FOOD. Milk is a great food, yet- very few havo even an approximate idea of its value ill (bile family diotary. Very few tables are ever provided with milk for drinking purposes. For city peop-'o who pay 4d a quart for milk, it would not seem so much out of place- to think that milk is too expensive, to form a regular part of the daily fare, but with milk producers, to whom the cost is only about a penny a quart, it is clear that the actual food value of milk is far under-estimated. I think I am hitting the truth pretty closely when I say not one in twenty farmers' tables is provided with milk for drink ing purposes. In regard to the cheapues oi miik, lert it bo said that ono and one-half quarts of average milk has just about the same food value as a pound of beefsteak. This means that on the farm as much nourishment can be had out of 1J worth of milk as out of 7Jd worth of beefsteak. Of courso people will always want some meat, but since milk his highly relished by most pe...
PUT MORE BRAINS INTO FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
PUT IVIORE BRAINS INTO FARMING. The best of farmers realise very keenly the supreme importance of wise and efficient farm management. It means so much to the final out come. The man who is a student, of his farm very soon gains the conviction that the subject is bigger than he is; that he needs all the help, both physical and mental, that he can employ to make things come out right. And then, with tho best of forecast, he is subject to the hazard of the weather which often sets him back and thwarts him in his wisest and best endeavors. As one farmer oncc remarked to ns who had formerly been a railroad ongineer and a good one, too: "I used to think that railroading could beat any vocation in compelling a man to keep his wits on their feet all the time; but farming, if you do it right,. can beat the railroad twice over." Some men get discouraged in trying to do as well as they know. There are so many hindrances in the way. But there is this to be said of the farm: it is a place for th...
REMINDERS FOR THOSE BUYING ARTIFICIAL FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
REMINDERS FOR THOSE BUY j IMG ARTIFICIAL FERTILISERS. By W. C. Robertson, Supervising An alyst, in "Journal of Agriculture." Don't purchase artificial fertilisers of low grade, for you are only paying freight on the "filler." Don't take delivery of any artificial manure without an invoice certificate. This is your safeguard. Don't take delivery of unlabelled or uubranded bags of fertiliser. Don't be satisfied unless you receive the manure you order. When order ing bonedust, do not accept bone fer tiliser. Don't pay a higher price than the ?registered price per ton, plus freight. The Fertiliser Acts regulate the prico at which any given manure can bo sold. Don't bo dissatisfied should you weigh several bags of. fertiliser and find them several pounds lighter than the guaranteed weight. Artificial fer tilisers, especially superphosphate, con tain water, and this, in transit, often dries out. Don",, worry over a "sticky" man ure, or try to force it through the drill. It is better to im...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
j (From Our Special Correspondent) Since the departure nearly twenty years ago of the late Lord Ilopetoun -as lie was known then and as he is held in most affectionate remem brance-there has been 110 Governor who has got so far into the hearts of the people of Victoria as the pre sent representative of the Crown Sir Arthur Stanley. lie is the typical gentleman in the true meaning of that much overworked term. His un affected, sunny, geniality is infecti ous. and. while he is capable of main taining the dignity of lii.s office, he is one of the best of illustrations of the I'.-ict that the Britisher is not always the arrogant, self-satisfied individual that foreign peoples delight to depict him. But with all his sang-froid, Sir Arthur Stanley has, since the out-, break of the war, proved time and aa-ain that lie is the stuff of which statesmen are made, llis broad sane outlook, and virile patriotism, have done much of what has been done to bring about a true perspective of the positi...

A BUSY PLACE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
A BTJSY PLACE. Eugene Field's fame as a wit had not reached England when he went aoross on his first visitj and when he got to London, his friends sought to introduce him into society. On eyry occasion he was told to tell something about his ntaive land, and the tales he told would have put Mun chausen to shame. At one of the gatherings, the subject of lynching in America was being discussed. "I suppose it is not unusual to pee one or more lynchings every day," re marked an Englishman. ('Not at all uncommon," replied Field "In fact we are so accustomed to see ing people lynched that we pay little attention to hanging of That charac ter." "And you have seen people lynched," inquired a horrified lady sitting beside the American poet. "Many of them," Field answered in a tone so reassuring that it would have done credit to a liar of twice his age and experience. "The last lynching I witnessed," he continued, "was just before I sailed. I was with some friends at dinner in a Cafe in New Y...

THE ALPINE DAIRY BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
I THE ALPINE DAIRY BUSINESS. (By George Cecil in the "Jersey Bulletin.") | Cleanliness being a virtue in Swit 1 zerlaml the dairying business in the I Alps is curried on under hygenic con ditions. Not only are the milkers scrupulously clean in their persons, but the cowsheds, the milk pails, the sepa rators, the churns and so forth, are kept in apple-pie orderj -whilo .the health of the cows is specially looked ai'ter by duly qualified voteriuary Bur geons. Indeed, should any dairyman or daily farmer neglect to report a case of sickness amongst the cows, he is liable to severo pains and penalties, the repetition of an offence perhaps landing him in gaol. Under tho cir cumstances, it will not surprise the reader to loarn tha; in the Alps it is the rarest thing for Uiiieii ID DO traoGd to the dairy products. CHILDREN AS MARKETERS. Much of the milk is sent in to the morning market, which opens soon after sunrise, being attended by the representatives of the various dairy establishments...
FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
| Bv "Arabroauje,'*) I " In London they are describing Miss violet Markham's views as "Spartan advice from a woman.'' She thinks the Londoners show too many outward signs of fear. of invasion, and she ex presses her opinions on things in gen; eral in a letter to a London journal: London is left in Cimmerian dark ness owing to some anticipation of a Zeppelin raid (she writes). 'Personally I deprecate this darkening of our capi ta! in view of possible bombs from pro blematical airships. When our brave me 11 in the field are taking chances two to one; when Paris shrugs her shoulders daily over the advent of Taubes, it seems to .me over-complimentary to Berlin to create, casualties iu our streets 011 the off-chance of a visit from lier airmen. I fee; sure there is not the smallest reluctance on the part of any one of us to ofl'er our humble roofs in the general darkness r'or bombs de stined for Whitehall. What hurts our pride is the thought of Berlin, capital of a country unprotected by...

DODDER IN LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 February 1915
DODDER IN LUCERNE. With regard to complaints about this ' troublesome parasite, prevention is a ' more practical remedy than cure. As 1 to a cure, it is recommended that the lucerne should be taken in hand before ' (lowering. One method said to be eft'ec- : tire is to cut the lucerne close to the . ground, clearing up the surface, and drawing everything from a yard be- ; yond the edgo of the affected part to j the centre, and there burn it. In no | circumstances should the cut stuff be ' carried away, as in so doing fragments j are sure to fail, and so disseminate the 1 disease. It' in Uower there is danger | of ripe seed not being burnt. After ; a week the spots should be examined ! iest a fragment has escaped destruc- j tion, and is spreading again. Another j system is to spray the patches after they have been cut with a 10 per cent, j solution, I lb. to I gallon of water, of j sulphate of copper (blue vitroii, blue- ! j stone), or of sulphate of iron (green , ! vitriol, copperas)...
