§E]ap3iQQ § (^aqotto THE NOULEST MOTIVE IS THE PUBLIC GOOD TUESDAY, FEBRUARY (10, 1914. There was a fair attendance at the picture entertainment given in Queen's park on Thursday evening last, under tha auspices of the Bowling club. The programme presented by Mr Gibbs, of Ballarat, was first class, and was greatly enjoyed. The pictures were clearly shown, and the effect was enhanced by musical performances on a powerful gramaphone. Those present were well satisfied with the display, and are looking forward to the return of Mr Gibbs in three weeks' time, when another fine programme will be submitted. The secretary of the Bowling club (Mr F, J. Eberhard) carried out the arrangements very satisfactorily.,' , ???_ The fortnightly meeting of the. Clunes Branch A.N.A. was held on Friday evening; President Rogers in the chair. It was decided to write to tho Board of Directors, pointing out to them the national aspect of the movement initiated locally to erect a monument in honor of the fir...
DECENTRALISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 10 February 1914
DECENTRALISATION. «, I On January 17 th Mr T. M. Smith, Organiser for tho Victorian Decentra lisation; Leagiio, lcctured at London | House, Melbourne, on " Decentralisa tion and City Interests." At the outset Mr Smith referred to | tho fact that a commission was sitting &lt; to consider how to bolster up our city industries; whereas thero was really a greater need for inquiry into tho nhrinknge in tho numbers of primary producers in tho State. If this were undertaken, and tho probloui satisfac torily dealt with, thero would be no need to worry about the condition o£ our secondary industries. They would | bo iu no need of any help. The city could not bo permanently prosperous unless tho number npd prosperity of primary producers steadily increased. Therefore decentralisation affected city interests as well as those of the country. The present condition in which 600,000 people, or nearly half the population of tho State, were con centrated in one centre, was nn abnor mal one, ...
WHICH TWO? [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 10 February 1914
WHICH TWO? "Do you see that handsome row'of tall poplars on the Canadian shore, standing: apparently at equal distances apart?" asked a melancholy-lookingr man of a group of passengers on the Fort Eric ferry-boat at Buffalo. The group nodded assent. "Well, there's quite a story connect ed with those trees," he continued. "Some years ago there lived in a house in Buffalo, overlooking the river, a very wealthy banker, whose only daughter was beloved by a young sur veyor.' The old man w'as inclined to question the professional skill of young rod-and-level; and to put him to thi test he directed him to set out on the Dominion shore a row of trees no two of which should be any farther apart than any other tjvo. "The trial proved the lover'a ineffi ciency, and forthwith he was forbid- i den the house, and is despair he drowned himself in the river. Per haps some of you gentlemen with keen eyes can tell which two trees are far thest apart?" The group took a. critical view of the situation,...

Summing up tho reasons which lod him to this do | cision, tho Princo says; (1) Koozmich undoubtedly was o' well-bred and highly-oducated man; he was aware-in dotail-of all questions of State and- of history, especially in connection with the ond of the eigh teenth century and tho reign of Alex ander I.; he knew perfectly foreign languages; ho had served in the army, or, at least, had worn a uniform; ho knew all . about tho Court life and ceremonial and high-class lifo in St. Petersburg.

00 MANY MIDDLEMEN. . ? The elimination of the eo-betwecns in trade to as event nil extent as is romputible with sound business.- is roinctliintr trrcutlv to be desired. Tho juute from the farm to the market i-now too intricate and sinuous to I ITord the farmer the hiehest bene fit. "Too manv cooks spoil the broth" and too manv middlemen work dis aster to the farmer. Evorv time an article of trade is handled somebodv turns a profit, and the expenses of handling lire divided, one part beine dedueted from the producer's pay nnd the other added to the consum er's- bill. Therefore, it is in the in terest of both tho producer and the" consumer to come into as closc rela tions as possiiiie. To that end co operative selline associations and consumers' leacues have been organ ised in various parts, and where these fail, for anv cause, it is because the ma'chinery'is inadeauate. and not be caus'o of anv inhereut defect in the principle upon which tho plan is founded.

MARKING FOWLS [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914
MARKING FOWLS There are two ways in which the farmer may mark his poultry so that he can tell absolutely the exact age of any fowl. First by leg banding second, by punching the web of the foot of newly hatched chicks. The former method consists of banding the leg of the fowl with small numbered or lettered bands of aluminium, wire and composite metals. This method is eminently satisfactory for the rrian who makes a specialty of poultry raising and breeding, but for the average farmer, the latter method is quicker, cheaper, and more practical. With the latter method one operation marks the bird for life, while in the former the bands have to b(T changed frpm time to time as the jchick matures. Light breeds are precocious and de- I ,veiop rapidly; they may be caponized when two or three months old. The I heavy breeds will be ready at from three to five months old. Don^t let it .go beyond six months, as after that age the organs are bigger, carry mora blood, and so cause the operation ...
THE POULTRY RUN. BONE DEFORMITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914
THE POULTRY RUN. BONE DEFORMITIES. iThe most frequently met with de . formity among badly-managed chic - kens is that known as crookcd-brcast It is a deformity resulting either ftorn ? .the use of perches at too early an age, . or through feeding the chickens on foods deficient in bone-forming ele ments. In nine cases out of every ten the too early use of perches is noi jthe cause of the trouble, but the latter is traceable to unsuitable rations. If thickens are to escape breast curva ture, due regard to the development of . strong frames must be paid when diet : icg them. The use of a good propor tion of oat foods in the chickens' ra tions will do much towards the secur . jpnee of strong frames. Oats in a j ground, split and hulled form are all excellent for chickens, and where they lire used bone deformities are seldom .IQet with. Another good bone former : »s milk, and this the youngsters should be given to drink at least once a day Buring their period of growth. The fibrous part...

THE DOUBLE DISSOLUTION. PARTY TACTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 13 February 1914
jTH£ DOUBLE OISSOLUTION. PARTY TACTICS. I That there will be a double dissolu tion within a few mouths is now practically certain. The Scnato with its overwhelming Labor majority can iling the Bills of Ministers back in their faces, with every expression of contempt. Whilst Labor is thoroughly orga nised and has definite aims, the Liberal Party always, and inevitably, tends to slackness. Its men. bets are drawn from all sections of the com munity, who are agreed on the one basic principle that the individual should bo free, that there shall not be a new serfdom with the Trades Union " Boss" as the modern slare driver. But in order to organise successfully it is necessary to go a little further. The Liberal programme appeals to the youngdr men, and it is they who count. That programme has to be scattered broadcast, and the Prime Minister, who is as earnest in the matter as the youngest of those behind him, has to be supported in scattering it. Absolutely nothing can be done without o...
