NATURE'S LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

NATURE'S LAWS. Nature is a generous mother, but an ugly step-mother if one attempts to cross her- purpose. The great mistake of many farmers is in trying to lie penny-saving, in .buying cheap seed, working with tools unfit for the pur pose required of them, and mating their -animals with inferior sires, against nature's laws. 'There is but one result. Nature goes on with her business and the 'breeder comes to grief and is ready to sell out. He simply worked at cross-purposei with nature. She does not advertise her intentions, nor cry them through tlie streets, yet she speaks in .no uncer tain language to the listening ear. Jf the breeder works in unison with na ture's laws, he is all-powerful and his success sure.

A JAY GOULD STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

A JAY GOULD STORY. Under "Labby Reprinted," "Truth" recalls the following classic anecdote about the late Jay Gould, the million aire railroad "boss." Those who have heard the yarn will, we are sure, for give our reproducing It for the sake of those who have not: I remember hearing, years ago, a good story about Jay Gould. He had a quantity of stock of some particular railroad which, being worthless, he was anxiouB to sell. His minister came to him one morning and said to him: "Mr. Gpuld, I am a poor man and I have a large family. I have managed to put by ten thousand dol lars, and if only I could double it I Should not be anxious about the fu ture of my family if I were called away." "Minister," said Mr. Gould, "I will tell you how to do so, provided that you will tell no one else," and he ad vised him to purchase largely of this particular stock for arise. The minister did so, and the stock was in great demand. But a month or two afterwards the market price fell heavily. Again the...

HUMUS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

HUMUS. Aim at, keeping up your humus sup ply (vegetable matter), as this 'is the first thing a plant looks for. It must be. in the soil to enable the three es sentials to plant life-'phosphoric acid, potash and nitrogen-to thoroughly perform their functions. Where the humus is absent the three very neces sary essentials named would be of ab solutely no value during a hot, dry spell. Even in a favorable season, with moisture forthcoming, the relief would only be temporary, and a dry pincli will pull it up at once. Not bo where the humus is incorporated in the soil, for, apart from its functions as moisture conserver-which alone is invaluable to plant life-1t sets up certain bacterial action which makes more available any plant food that is in the soil, in an insoluble form, and the soil is better able, where this vegetable matter is in abundance, to respond to any application of commer cial fertilisers. Always aim at keep ing up the "body" of your land by adding green manure crops. T...

CHAPTER XLII. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

CHAPTER XLII. Ail ante-room in the Law Courts. Lady Pettigew left the Court crush ed and overwhelmed with humiliation -a whole world of shame beating in upon her, beating her down to her very kneejs in 'hopeless, helpless agony. Her husband stood by her, mute of his own misery, affording her comfort by gentle words of sympathy and assurance of his love for her. Occasionally there came bursts of muttered misery from the poor brow beaten woman, interspersed with frantic cries against the injustice of it all. Dainty worked herself into a. frenzy against her dead parent, who had brought her up so abominably as to land her in a slander case. Then followed distraught imprecations against Sibstone, so fierce and so shrill that her poor honor-maimed hus band had to place-his hand gently over her mouth. She resisted and fought like a wild cat. Then as sud denly she turned upon him and. ac cused him of standing up for Angela Burney-"for a thief," she cried hysterically, "I know she is a thief...

AN EDUCATION TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

AN EDUCATION TEST. A professor once told his pupils that he should consider them educated in the best sense of the word when they could say "Yes" to every one of the questions that he should put to them. Here are the questions: - Has education given you sympathy with all good causes and made you espouse them? Has it made you public spirited? Has it made you a brother to the weak? Have you learned how to make friends and keep them? Do you know what it is to be a friend yourself? Can you look an honest man or a pure woman in the eye? Do yon see anything to love in a little child? Will a lonely dog follow you in the street? Can you be high-minded and happy in the meaner drudgeries of life? Do you think washing, dishes and hoeing turnips just as compatible with high thinking as piano placing or, golf? .

CHAPTER XLIII. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 January 1914

CHAPTER XLIII. The crush in the Court the next morning would have done credit to a Drury Lane matinee. It is no exag geration to say that the highest in the land fought, and not always un successfully, with the lowest in the land; both strata were equally inter ested in the parties in the case. For instance, Mr. Bossy Jim was seated not far oft from Lady Constance Sil vertop and Mrs. Willoughby West, both of whose dresses he had impar tially stamped upon and torn in his offorts to gaze upon his quondam play mate, Lady Pettigew, and hear his particular pal, Mr. James Mordan, give, evidence, should he be called upon to do so. At the outset of the resumption of this memorable suit, young Penistone Cott. rose to ask leave to withdraw from the case. He thought that ho could better as sist both litigants to arrivo at a friendly issue if he were allowed the opportunity to go into the witness box and make a statement. In consideration of the fact that the jury had stopped the case, Mr. Just...

WHAT YOUR HAND TELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 January 1914

WHAT YOUR HAND TELLS. The hand, we md assured, is a faitTi ful index to the character; anyhow, palmistry is an interesting: subject, nndf affords plenty of amusement. Havo you a narrow, soft palm ? If so, you lack resolution. But a Lard, stiff palm Jonotos determination. A largo thumb means independence; a small one, im pulsiveness. Spade-shaped finger-tips suggest an - ability to overcome troubles, wliilo tapering ones say you are ornamental rather than useful, and fond of freedom. Abovo tlio life-line, beginning between your thumb and forefinger, is your head lino. If it id unbroken and' clearly defined, it shows a well-balanced mind. When if is wide and pale, the indication is not so good. A linked headline-that is, one with little islands in it-evid ence lack of concentration; a broken one, an inclination to bo vacillating. The line of your heart, abovo youi* head-line, and just below the mounts at the base of your fingers, when clear, narrow and extended to tho mount of Jupiter...

FOUL GROUND AND OVER-CROWDING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 January 1914

FOUL GROUND AND OVER CROWDING. It is, I think, no exaggeration to say that half the complaints from which fowls suffer are traceable to im pure or tainted ground. When fowls are confined continually to. one plot of ground tho danger of contaminating the soil is largely overcome by something being- grown on tho run. But wlion the run is laid down in grass it is a!> uolutely necessary that it should be " regularly and frequently mown, other wise tho rain does not carry tho man ure, into the soil, hut lots it remain in " a poisonous state among the long1 coarse grass. Of all methods that have been adopted by the poultry-keeper whoso space is restricted, there is nono so Bound in practice aa tho division of tho run. Tho advice to reduco tho number of fowls is rarely adopted, as tho tempt ation to keep a larger number than i " the amount of ground will cany is too ' ' great for many poultry-keepers to re sist. A division of tho space, there fore, is strongly recommended, each sec tion...

SPORTING NOTES. PAKEHA.") BOWLING. CLUNES v BALLARAT. Clunes opened the season on New Year's Day with a match against a team from the Ballarat club, on tho latter's green. It proved most enjoy able, notwithstanding that the visitors were well beaten. . The green was in the pink o£ condition and piayed like .a billi ird table. There wns no bump ing or running o2 the line. If the bowls didn't find the mark it was purely the fault ot the bowler. Cap tain Tom Williams can be given a lot of credit for the excellence of the green, for he superintends the top dressing, and watches over. it. during the close'season like a hen over her chickens. Clunes, bad a good team, but very few had had more than two games for the season, so it was not anticipated that they would secure a win. In the early stage of the mutch they kept fairly close to their op-! ponents, but as the game proceeded they fell behind, and finished with 60 pointy, as against 92.

THE POULTRY RUN. LEGHORN FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 January 1914

< . THE POULTRY RUN. I ----:ni LEGHORN FOWLS. It is s#fo to assort that sinco tlio Leg horns landed in England in 1870 no other breed of fowls has done so much' for tho commercial side of poultry cul ture, and tho term ^egg machines" is well applied to them by those who havo by careful selection built up a strain oi birds solely for egg production. It is .well nigh impossible to over-estimato the utility qualities of the true origi nal Leghorns. Tho chickens aro robust, quick growing, and, consequently con tribute to tho egg baskot at an oarly age. Tho Leghorn-that is, tho utility type of Leghorn-is, when matured, an egg-groducing fowl, its flesh being far short of the quality desired in edible poultry.

COURSING. "SUMMERING GREYHOUNDS". [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 January 1914

COURSING. "SUMMERING GREYHOUNDS". "Hotspur" in the "Leader" writes : -From time to time I have received many inquiries from young aricl aspir ing coursers as to the mode of treating greyhounds in the off season during the summer recess, but the high ten sion at which the spori lias been carried on during the time of active operations lias alone prevented me from acceding to the wishes of my correspondent. As the exigencies for space are considerably discounted at the present period, and as it is an opportune time, I purpose to give a few useful hints on the subject ot "summering" greyhounds.. In the first place dogs should be allowed as much freedom as possible. They should be allowed to play about in a good sized paddockand rest at will. If a man is fortunato to have the ground, one of the first things to soe to is that, if the kennels are not con tiguous to the paddock, shelter from the heat in summer must bo provided for, iuch as an open shed where the dogs' can repose in the sha...
