CROSS-BRED POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 4 February 1914

CRO88-BRED POULTRY, Every little while someone tells us that cross-bred hens do better than pure-bred ones, so they will take a good flock of pure-bred hens and mate them to a male of another breed, and so spoil the whole lot, Spoll them? Well, perhaps not entirely, but they do throw away more than one good chance to make a little extra money, and without any benefit to themselves, Nothing is gained by crossing differ. ent breeds of poultry, but much is lost by so doing, , Where, then, do they get the idea that it pays to do so? Here in the country among the farmers, and they are the oca who advance this opin iou chlefly, the usual excuse is that they get more' eggs, If this is true then t' 'y have a reason, and a good one, for using crosses. But what gives them this idea, and is it fact or fancy? There are generally two rea. sons for their thinking as they do, First, they nay they have tried both. Second, a neighbor who always has eggs to sell keeps only cross-bred fowls, Let us ex...

OBITUARY. MRS. JANE CADZOW. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 4 February 1914

OBITUARY ----~-4--- MRS. JANE CADZOW. We regret very much to record the death of one of the last of the pioneers of this town and district, in the person of Mrs. Jane Cadzow. Deceased was held in very high esteem by all who knew her. She was an example of that indomitable courage which sur- mounted the difficulties of opening up a new country, and played her part in preparing an easier path for the generations to follow. Deceased and her late husband, Mr, John M'Lean   Cadzow, arrived, in Melbourne from Scotland in 1854,and having visited the rushes at Forrest Creek and Korong, came on to St. Arnaud, settling with two   children at the Gap in 1858. After following mining for a number of years, Mr. Cadzow took up land at Gowar, and farming operations were carried on for a lengthy period. Mr. and Mrs. Cadzow afterwards came to St. Ar- naud to reside, and Mr. Cadzow again pursued mining for some time. He died in 1907. Mrs. Cadzow   subsequently re...

THE MAN ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 7 February 1914

THE MAN ON THIE FAYIM, When you get out where a man has a little elbow.room and it chance to develop, he has thoughts of his own. His thinlliig is not supplied to him every night and every morning, and hie Is less of a machine and more of a man, so that we do not think that Ihe tarmers need to be looked upon, or want to be looked upon, as depend ents of the State. They do not come to the State Government asking almen, They are self-reliant, they are intelli. gent. What we want in connection with agriculture is what we want in connection with every other field of noble effort, We want training, we want intelligence, we want scientlile method, we want direction, we want the way Hhown, and then the man can walk in It. There is no reason why tile same care and attention atnd skiiil and scientifie considtleration should not be devoted to agricuiture 'As to indu? try and the technical trades.
