The Stawell News AND Pleasant Creek Chronicle THURSDAY. JANUARY 29, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 29 January 1914
&iu ^iaiueU i.ieiufi AND HHuatfon! $vesk g/Uvontdc THURSDAY. JANUARY 29, I'Jl-J Ir may ba said that practically the whole prosperity of Victoria depends on the development of tbo counrry districts. For many years past ; rural progress has been retarded through the powerlul influence of tbo "Age" newspaper. That journal, whioh derives nine-tenths of its in come from Melbourne, has always held a brief for the metropolis. Members of parliament, and even Governments in the post have for gotten that tbo "Age" is simply a commercial concern for the benefit of its proprietors, and they have evaded their duty to the people and taken their policies from the Mel bourne publication. Fortunately Mr Watt end hie oolloagu&lt;s have a policy of their own, and intend to carry it out without ?ny regard to the Melbourne publication which has for so long been the advocate of central isation. The "Age" has done more to build up the overgrown population of Melbourne than any other agency...
Anolont Hand Looms, [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 31 January 1914
Anoiont Hand Looms, Two forms of loom were known to the ancient Egyptians: the earlier or horizontal form still surviving in a modified form in Egypt and Seistan; second, the vertical, a later but not universally later form. In the Greek loom the type was upright, the warp threads being kept taut by weights, and similar to the form in central and northern Europe. It probably was pro vided with a hcddle, but this is not certain, says "Nature"; a spool was used; the weavers were women, and the weft was beaten upwards or away from the weaver. There seems to be no connection between the Greek and Egyptian types. But in form of looms used by the two peoples, the Egypt ians were considerably in advance of the Greeks. An interesting part of the monographs is the experiments made by modern skilled weavers to work these primitive machines.
Do We Eat Too Muoh? [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 31 January 1914
Do Wo Eat Tod Muoh? * our meals a day is the average per" son's programme—different dishes at each mea1, and a fooling' that some thing must be wrong if the appetite is not up to the mark each time. Do we, as a nation, physically progress on this scale? Coarse brown bread and sour wine was the staple diet of the Roman soldiers who built such wonderful roads, and carried a weight of armour and luggage that would appal the average porter. Regularity and constancy in exercise and temper ance in diet was their motto. The coolie fed on rice has' greater endur ance, is more active, and keeps more fit than the negro fed on meat. Sour olives and a little fruit enable the porters of Smyrma comfortably to. walk off with their load of 1001b. weight. In Spain the peasant works all day and dances half the night, yet rarely is his food varied from black bread, onion, and water-melon.
Mounting Bullooks' Horns, [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 31 January 1914
Mounting Bullooks' Horns, Obtain a piece of hard wood, oak for preference, sufficiently long to go some inches into each horn, leaving a space between the horns of at least Gin.—the longer the horns the greater the spacc between them. Dress the wood with a plane, spokeshave, and rasp into a cylinder rather larger In diameter than the butts of the horns. Then shape each end to fit the horns. Now warm both the wood and the horns and fix tlicm together with glue, cycle cement, etc., and finally drive a French nail through each horn (previously drilled) into the wood. A picce of black astrakhan or dyed lambskin is finally used to cover the bare wood and the junctions of the horns. A couple of screw-rings fixed into the block will enable the horns to be suspended.

ACCOMMODATION FOR POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 31 January 1914
ACCOMMODATION FOIR POULTRY. It is oflen a matter of considerable difficulty to find sufficient and suit able accommodation for all the fowls, and a common mistake is to endeav our to crowd as raany birds as pos sible into a small space instead of regulating- the number according- to the accommodation available. I re cently came across a beginner who, at th&lt;?, bottom of his garden, was keeping a dozen laying hens, about thirty chickens, and two batches of ducklings (about sixteen in all), whereas the space available was no mure than would have sufficed for the dozen hens. The chickens were not doing well, and considering that they were kept in such ridiculously close quarters no other result could have been expected. Why will people insist upon trying to rear chickens when they have no suitable accommodation ? It may be all very well to bring up a few early birds for the table, but the object in most cases is to rear them for stock purposes, and putting all the trouble and...

USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 31 January 1914
USEFUL HINTS. When you are saving- eggs for batch ing, only the perfectly shaped ones should be saved. Dirty and rougli ■-hirllcd egg's are no good for hatch ing. Turn them every day until they are put under the hen, which should not be any longer after the egg is laid than is possible, for the germ of the egg becomes weaker even' day. Chickens that are late or backward in feathering may be given a warm ing ingredient in their soft food to advantage. Unless the fowls have plenty of op portunity to exercise during the win ter. they will become weak and slug gish and more liable to disease. Pure breds are more prolifiir layers, giving a more uniform size and colour to the eg-g, and the young stock ma ture more uniformly and give better carcases and utilize the food consumed to a better advantage than is the case with cither crossbreds or mongrels. The profits of the poultry man de pend very largely upon the health of the flock; vigor and vitality are the factors which make money for h...

ROBBERY AT A MINE. £80 Worth of Slimes8 Stolen. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 31 January 1914

This is the seooud time the mino has been robbed, slimes to tho Biime value having disappeared last year. The circumstances of the case arc much the same. When the shifts changed at midnight there was no suspicion of anything being wrong, and it was not until the manager visited the mine at 7 o'clock that he found the. cyunido building, which is situated 150 yards from the battery, broken open, and the slimes Htolen. The footprints of two men w^re traced in the sand to a spot where thsy had mounted bicycles, and the tracks of the machines were followed 1)| milea on tho road towards Maiyborongh, The mine officials then placed the matter in hands of tho police, who are now inveatigating.
