HARVEST FEASTS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
HARVEST FEASTS. The feasts that now take place at the close of the harvest season are small affairs compared with -he old fashioned iharvest. suppers held form erly. in some of the northern coun ties of England the farmers would give churns of cream, and it was served out on eups to the laborers. Nowadays a-glass of ale or cider is the.substitute for the old-time feast. In some paits of the North of Ireland the ancient custom still lingers as "the churn supper." A very old custom is the baking of a large cake by the farmer's wife. This is cut up and served out to everyone, including chudren accompanyzng the "norkey cart" in the sarmyard. The "horkey cart" was the cart on which the last load of the season was drawn to the farm.
GROUND LIMESTONE FOR ACID SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
GROUND LIMESTONE FORuACID SOIL. An exhaustive comparison between limestone and quioklime has. been 'is sued by the head of one of-the Ameri can experiment stations. After ex plaining that the function of lime in the soil is two-fold-viz, to correct the acidity of the soil and to deoompose the soil itself-and showing .the effect ot these transformations, the writer dis cussed the kind of lime to use. There follows a sweeping condepnnation of quicklime, the use of whioh on soil which is already deficienrin' nitrogen and phosphates only serves to still:fur thor exhaust the soil of its meagre sup-' ply of these elements. It is true, the immediate effect is somewhat increased crops, but the continued use of lime, unless on soils exceedingly rich in or ganic matter, tends rapidly to exhaust tho soil and ultimately to leave it practically ruined. We'should use limo only to correct acidity of the soil, and this is necessary only where there is difficulty in obtaining a good stand and luxuri...

WHERE WOMEN RULE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
WHERE WOMEN RULE. SBritons are surprised that the American woman does not agitate more for political and social rights. One reason is that she has got them already. In this country the woman may not practise as a solicitor. In America she may be a Judge. A woman judge lives in Chicago. Her name is Mary Margaret Bartolme, and she heads the Court for Delinquent Girls. She is a Chicagoan by birth, and was educated in the public sohools. She graduated from the Law School of 'North-Western University in 1894 and took up general practice, specialising in probate law . In 1897 she was appointed Public Guardian of Cook County by Governor Tanner. She resigned this position upon her ap pointment to her present place. She is still comparatively young and according to the New York "Times, -has a keenly intellectual face, sensitive, sympathetic, and serious. "She is, perhaps, a trifle old-fashioned in ap pearance," the same authority pro ceeds, "dresses plainly and neatly and is certainly old-fa...

NEW SUN-SPOT THEORY. Professor A. Arta, of the observa tory of the University of Santa Clara, announces that he has discovered that the activity of the sun in phenomena known as sun spots is intimately re lated to the distance of comets. He says that during a period of 164 years to date there have been 238 comets" (their returns included) that apparent ly have influenced the action of the sun, having their perihelia Loncid?ut ally with the minimuna of spot frequ ency. -Camphor as' a Vitalising Agent. .. ? Abroad, where great pride-and just pride-is taken in the mileage per gallon of fuel that can be obtained, a small band of motorists rcoenely has been experimenting with gum cam phor as a "dope" for gasolihne. Usu ally, about one ounce of camphor is placed in five gallons of gasohne, ana it is stated by those who.use the mix ture that the operation of their motors is much superior awith the camphor in the gasoline than without it.

"When the Hirondelle, the Prince of Ehonaco's remarkable combination of yacht and scientifio laboratory, re cently entered New York larbour, her arrival was- made known to all the wireless stations in the vicinity by a concert, the- musio being heard 'and enjoyed by all who wore at the re ceivers of wireless apparatus," says the New York Herald. "The 'wire les piano' that was the source of this music is part of the wireless plant of the yacht, whioh is remarkable for its power and ingenuity. It is a German invention, but- is controlled by a French company.. " 'It always causes astonishment,' says the Prince. .

EDUCATIONAL PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
EDUCATIONAL PICTURES. There is a class of picture which I am afraid is already-doomed to failure as an educational aid I refer to the processes of manufacture and the growth of a plant or flower. Here, in the twinkling of an eye you have a ,plant grow, develop, and arrive at ma turity.. Yet in the schoolrooms of our progressive teachers you have the real 'plant grown in the germinating box. The child witnesses the slow develop mnet of the root and stem. The pro gress is noted in the drawing lessen and dated; In the senior classes the actual- growth is measured; with a time record and by the help of the me tric ruler, drawing and painntg les sons. a real idea of the growth of the plant is arrived at. Sense of time and proportion is presented to the child, but in the film the child knows it is:not real .it is 'only a fake," and the sense of thd unreal turns the child from It; It serves as a joke, but it is not soience. I tested a class of senior scholars, of an -intelligent standard. ...

DESTROYING GRASS AND WEEDS ON PATHS. Experiments as to the efficacy of ar senite of soda .or killing grass and weeds on garden paths were recently carried out by Mr. H. C. Coggins, As sitant Inspector of Agriculture. The experiment was arranged to test vari ous strengths, as follows: No. 1-1 lb. arsenite of soda to 2 gallons of water. No. 2-1 lb. arsenite of soda to 4 gallons of water. No. 3-1 lb. arsenite of soda to 6 gallons of water. No. 4-1 lb. arsenito of soda to 10 gallons of water. The path selected was a gravel one, 100" yards long, the edges. of which were covered with couch grass and small weeds. The experiment was carried out in December. the weather being hot and dry. The final examination showed than Nos. 1 and 2 killed the couch ana weeds, but Nos. 3 and 4 only partial'y killed them, and after thb heavy rains they revived, and are now growing vig orously. On Nos. 1 and 2 there was no growth of couch at all, and only a few weeds, the seeds of which were ap parently wash...

"I BELIEVE"—AN EVERYDAY CREED. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
"'I BELIEVE"--aN EVERYDAY CEE?D. I believe in my job. It may not be a very important job, but it is mine. Furthermore, it is Gcd's job for me. He has a purpose in my life with refer ence to His plan for the world's pro gress. No other fellow can take my place. It isn't a big place, to be sure, but for years I have been moulded in a peculiar way to fill a peculiar niche in the world's work. I could take no other man's place. He has the same claim as a specialist that I make for myself. In the end the man whose name- was never heard beyond the house in which he lived, or the shop in which he. worked, may have a larger place than the chap whose'name has been a household word in two contin ents.. Yes, I believe in my job., I believe in my fellowman. He may not always agree with me. I'd feel sorry for him if he did, because I my self do not believe some of the things that were absolutely sure in my- own mind a dozen years ago. May he never lose faith in himself because, it he does, he ma...
A JUNGLE TALE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
SAJUNGLE TALE. The gentleman whose forty years among tne big game of Bengal, Mr. Gouldsbury, has recorded in his latest book, "Tigerland," must surely get the palm for modesty. He will not suffer his identity to be revealed. We learn that as a lad he stole aboard a vessel bound- for Newfoundland, de serted, and joined another ship, and was borne to the East Indies On the out k of the Sepoy Mutiny he en tered the Bengal Mounted Consta bulary, and when this trouble was overpast he attached himself to the newly-raised police force. It was then that his fun began with tiger, leopard, and bear. The sportsman in India has (often at least) an excuse for his slaughter which other hunters. can seldom advance. In slaying big game (at considerable risk to himself) he may be, and frequently is, safe-guarding the iye stock of the peasant :- - "During the course of my tour, for example, it was no uncommon cccur renoe, while marching through or halt ing near a vllage, to find the people in a panic...
SUNLESS ROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
SUNLESS ROOMS. A room which does not admit sun shine is dark and gloomy, and must have a decided effect on the spirits of its occupants. Parents will often choose the best room in the house for a drawing-room-an apartment seldom much occupied by the family - while such rooms as the nursery, dining-room, and bedrooms often lack sunlight, not to speak of their vital deficiencies. Is it a wonder that childien do not thrive 'in dark, depressing nurseries? One has only to realise what it means for ten der. growing children to lire out the long winter days in a sunless room, and then we would also realise how cruelly they are being treated by parents who may be willing to sanoifice everything but 'their best Tooms-for their ?hild ren. Such is the mistaken value which people set. on the mgre accompaniments of life, while they leave its essentials to take care of themselves.
