CONDITION OF SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

CONDITION OF SOIL. If the land Is wet and cold when seed Is sown, even though the germi nation is good, the young plants re ceive such a severe check that they never wholly recover The land in tended for spring and summer crops should toe carefully prepared some time before the period for sowing. Then just previous to seeding, the surface should be cultivated, so as to give a fulness to the surface soil and still have the ground firm under neath. The principal "advantage of this method is that the moisture col lected from rains is retained In the lower layers o£ the furrow, and is there for the use of the prop Where as, if ploughed up or deeply cultiva ted in th.e spring, there Is always the risk thaV the drying winds of the spring -will rob the soil of too much moisture, leaving iiisufflcient for the use of the crop. In districts with a heavy 'rainfall that is evenly distributed over the whole of the season this precaution is not so important,-but in other dis tricts not so fortuna...

Honest John. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

Honest John.' George Carter, a very just man, carrying on business in a small vil lage, found it necessary one day to leave his establishment to the sole charge of John, his assistant, and, as usual, thinking it necessary to im press upon him the necessity of deal ing fairly with his customers, left him with these words:— "Well, John, if ever you are in doubt, quote a text to yourself, and you will find great help from it in your dealings." He had not been gone long before a lady walked into the shop and ask ed to see Bome shawls. John, pulling one out from under the counter, asked her how she liked it, stating that the price was half a crown. It was a very nice one, but being able to afford better, asked to see others. John, ready as ever, fetched an other out of the same box, and spread ing this out on the counter, Btated the price to be five shillings. Still she was not satisfied, so, fetching an other one, also out of the same box, he asked her how she would like that at half a ...

THE MAN IN THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

THE MAN IN THE MOON. By A.L.S. "lB.lt possible that the Man In th»i Moon has descended from the posi tion of a fully-credited reality to that of a mere figure 61 speedh; but even as such he Is of great use to us, es pecially when we wish to assert our ignorance of anything. When we Btate that we know no more than the Man In the Moon we are attributing the densest ignorance to that some what mythical personage; we at least credit him with baing an agnostic of the purest water. He could scarcely be even that if he did not exist at all. By our common language we are perpetuating a remarkable article of old folk-lore. Science and the tele scope give us their own Interpretation of the features that we discern on the moon's surface, but In popular belief tbere was once really a man there, whatever may .now have become of him. He was banished thither for the crime of gathering sticks on Sun 'day. If we refer to the Book of Num bers we find that a man who gathered sticks on the Sabbath was ...

MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

moral reflections: A man's character is the sum of his intentions and his choices. A man of honor never purchases happiness at the expense of another's sorrow. Let us not seek for influence; let us simply seek to do our duty, and in fluence will inevitably follow. The most insignificant people are the most apt to sneer at others. They are safe from reprisals, and have no hope of rising in their own esteem but by lowering their neighbors. Conceit loses a man more friends and gains him more enemies tnan any other foible, perhaps vice, in the world. It makes him harsh to his in feriors, and disrespectful to his bet ters. What kills men is discouragement. It is sitting down under trouble that destroys them; it is standing up and mocking trouble that enables thcia to go through it without harm. Regrets are a waste of time in every'possible Instance, except one. That one Is the instance in which the soul entertains them thoughtfully and humbly until they becomo valu able lessons for the f...

TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. A woman of uncertain years, who looked much younger than she was, took the following rules as her guide III maintaining a . youthful appear*' ance:— " Dress younger than you are. Never dress older. Never wear old ladles' clothes, no matter how old you get to be. Forget caps and wraps and shawls and easy chair gowns. Keep your figure young. You can not hope to look young if your figure is old. When you look in the looking-gla?s gaze at yourself from the hack, not from the front. If you look old, that is the point of view from which to re alise the fact. Beware of what Kate Field called the middle-aged figure. It is round in the shoulders aad. <hunched up in the belt line. There is a certain roly poly look about the woman who is older than she ought to be. Take care of your hair. Straggly hair goes with old age. Old people forget to shampoo, and they give up waving their locks. Don't let your hands get bony. Bony fingers belong to the aged. Keep th...

Strangers in the yards will [ make a difference to the yield of the j most nervous of the animals. It does j not seem to be made up again in sub ! sequent rankings. Cows should be treated gently. Keep the strangers away from the yards, especially if they are dressed in gay colors. Every time a cow snorts in fear some cream has gone. Dogs are a standing dan ger, especially if they are used to heel up the animals at milking time. The man who persists in using a dog is very foolish.
