PUBLICATIONS. SCOTT'S EPITAPH AND ITS ORIGIN. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 10 January 1914

P UBLICATItONS. SCOTT'S EPITAPH AND ITS ORIGIN.. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the January ' Life,' which is just to hand, is a photograph aii an explanation of the origin of the epitaph which was written for the memorial cross to Capt. Scott and his fellow heroes. It seems that when Capt. Scott. was leaving for the South Pole Dr Alexander Leeper, Warden of Trinity College; Melbourne, gave him as a memento a little volumn of Browning, in which he wrote the concluding lines from Tenynson's Ulysses: 'To strive, to find, but not to yield.'" The little volume was discovered in the tent with Capt. Scott, and the members of the scarch party, considering the lines a most ap propriate epitaph, carved them on the cross which stands on Observation Hill. Other interesting articles in this ex cellent number are: -' The Greatest Busi ness on earth' in which Frederick Palmer, the war correspondent, tells how Science has robbed War of its romance; Mr Carlyle Smythe's description of Max O...

THE FARM. A LOSS PREVENTED IS A PROFIT MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 10 January 1914

THE FARM. A LOSS PREVENTED IS A PRO FIT MADE. The greatest losses on a farm are very often the unnoticed ones. They are unnoticed because they are not apparent on the surface. One of the most serious of these losses is lime. Three wide gates for ever .stand open on our farms, and' through these gates the valuable lime in the soil is ceaselessly going, never to return unless brought back in the farmer's dray. What are these g'ates, and why: are they left .open ? . Is it possible to keep them closed ? We shall answer these questions to the best of our ability. The 'first of these gates is the crop ; arid since a farmer cannot live unless he markets. his crop, be it milk, live stock, grain, or fruit, this gate cannot and must not be closed. The second gate may be called drain age, and this may be kept closed, and certainly should for a great part of the year. The third gate is called "artificial fertilisers," and should only be left open under exceptional circumstances. We often wonder...
