Railway News. The bulk of the wheat from/the G.V. and N.E. districts has now been sent forward and the traffic is slackening off generally.. Mlost of the extra engines, crews and guards sent here for the busy season have now returned to Melbourne. The fruit yield in the G.V. dis trict this year has been the heaviest on record, and it was found neces sary to run a special train daily, which has been bringing in up to 17 trucks for Sydney and Mel bourne markets.

REMINISCENCES OF AVENEL. OVER 30 YEARS AGO. No.13. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 February 1914
REMINISCENCES OF AVENEL. OVER 30 YEARS AGO. No.' 13: (By W. Smithers Gadd, secretary of the Early Pioneers Association, Melbourne.) THE AVENEL CEMETERY. A cemetery is frequently located at a distance from the centre, of population, but the Avenel buriel ground is right in the township, the houses adjacent look into this resting place and with some it would cast a gloom over their sen sative nature, but with others use becomes a second -nature and they view the position of the cemetery and its close proximity in a philos- i ophical manner. It is there, and there it must remain as it is not the fault of the present generation. The early pioneers selected the site in which their remains were to be in terred, and what was left of them should be deposited as close as pos sible to the spot where in life the best of their days were spent. The noise o' the trains, the whistle of the engine, the rattling .of the heavy chains, the colliding of the trucks when shunting,- the hissing of the ste...

WHAT LOCOMOTIVES ARE COMING TO. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 February 1914
WHAT .LOCOMOTIVES ARE COMING TO. In "Cassier's" Mr. J. F. nGairne de .dr'hes. remarkable locomotives. Not only are locomotives growing in length if bod, niumber of wheels, and short ness of funnel, but in thear inordinate length they are actually becomilig joint ed to as to wind their way round curves. America is now almost the exclusive homne of the Mallet type articulated lI. comotive, especially on a large scaleand several interesting designs of this class will require reference in due course.But the locomotive is pecuiliarly notable, in that it provides the only instance of the prorision of twenty driving wheels in one machine. The origin of the class is somewhat strange. Some ten years or so ago a series of enormous 2-10--2 tandem compound engines were placed in service by the Atohison, Topeka and Santa' Fe Railroad. Thbse were then the largest locomotives-in the world, mifr i'epresented about the extreme poe. sibli developments under non-articula ted con ditions. They have now...

IMPROVED SEED GRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 February 1914
IMPROVED SEED GRAIN. In a lelport itecenuly issued by the United States Department of Agricul ture attention is drawia to a new move iment.in the seed tre.de. A number of "expelrimental associations" and "crop-breeders' associatloelis" hai;vo been formei ill different States. The oh jects and mnethods of the two kinds of association appear to be somewhat similar. Of the first kind, thle Wiscon stl Experimental Assorciation furnish es an example. It is c?rs;.. :,l of per sons who have attended thse State Ag ricultural College. 'The experiment station attached to the college sup plies members of t 1 association with seed of new varieties of grain producedJ at the station, or obtained from other growers, and the mnembers thus become distributors in their respective com munities. When nhlquiries for seed come to the station the inquirers are referred to the member of the asso ciation who lives nearest them.

HORSE SENSISMS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 February 1914
HORSE SENSISMI. Week before field-work is possible every young horse intended for ervice should be broken to a dependable quantity. When he is hitched to a plough, it is often very expesaaive to teach .linm.'that it is` wrong to turn inside out with his,team-mate. I said "broken." That is good Eng hsh but it's bad horsemanship. Train. ing sounds academic and perhaps pugi listic, but it is better for the horse. It may have been profitable t, "break" a £3 horse, but hardly a £40 animal. Ie should be halter-wise at one year d. Several weeks before hitLching or driving, let him stand in the atall with an old harness on. Let him know the harmlessness of. every jingling buckle or chafing or flapping strap. Give him a bit, too to play with and to discover that it has come to stay. Don't -put him in the harness.with the oldest, laziest, and slowest walking animal on the farm. The team-mate of the young horse will have nearly i's much influenoe'iiupon his early-train ing as the driver. - A b...

There are practically no for ago crops in our sense of the word, and no root crops, but a considerable area of grass land, which produr? large crops in the valleys and abundar: grazing on the mountains and their lower slopes.

Apple- Packing. PROPER PICKING ESSENTIAL FOR :-:.RFECT PACKING. It frequently requires a nice juog mneout to determine the proper time for picking apples. If picked toe seon tei hrsit will ibe undersized and peorly col ored, thus injuring seriously lesh :1t quality and appearance in ithe Ip"ac age. If allowed to hang'on i ,to long. its keeping quality is unuaird and danger of loss by high winds i m. phed. No definite rule can be 1iiI dorwn as to time of picking. When thk fruit. on'being twisted one-half arouhil will snap cleanly from the spur withiu; breaking the stem,'it should be picked. Red apples are usually picked when they have assumed a normal colour, and yellow apples when they have st tuned the. proer size and the seedl become browned. There are great dif ferences, however, between variet:'. .The Jonathap must be picked as soon a: colored or it will not keels in stor ago, the Red Astrachan becomes ulealy andi often cracks when left for even a day or two after colouring, the...

THE MODERN GIRL. SHOULD SHE HAVE A LATCHK'EY "Woman's Life," a London paper, contributes the following contributions from their readers on the subject ol "Should girls have latch-keys?" Decidedly yes.- Why? Beca w the modern girl is not the namby pamby indiviuail her grand-mother was. The many grooves open now fur the average woman make her a "a-y independent sort of creature, and a many cases, where she is called upon to support the home, it is only fair she should enjoy the privileges of her bra ther. Being a business woman, she gets numerous invitations out--and what would be the good of all tlhe family being kept out of bed because of prejudice? Certainly - girls should have latch-keys;. As a brother of four bachelor gs is, I say decidedly no. Girls are so care less-at least, my sisters are. T'hey each had a latch-key a-piece, and- would you believe it-each one of these latchkeys has been lost. Consequent ly it is their invariable habit to borrow mine. They borrow it and forget ...
