Breeding of Jersey Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 8 October 1914

Breeding of Jersey Cattle. ADDRESS BY MR A. GORRIE At a meeting of mombers of the South Gippsland Jersey Cattle Breeders' Association held in the lodge room of the Leon gatha Mechanics' Institute on October 1st, Mr A. Gorrie, editor of the "Commonwealth Herd! Book " (Sydney) delivered an ad dress upon the breeding of Jersey cattle. Mr Gorrie opened his-address by remarking that up to the present dairying had been a pro fitable occupation, for land had been plentiful and cattle cheap. If dairymen required extra good milkers they could be secured at a reasonable sum. However, that stage was passing, and it would nol be long before those in search of good cattle would have to breed them, and they must be bred pure. A fair amount of success could be obtained by crossing with a good bull. The .pure bull had behind him the ele ments which went towards fixing the temperament in the animals. This governed the form, which meant sustained production. The active temperament was to be found in ...

THE HOMING INSTINCT. ' The story of the Airedale that tramped back home 125 miles is only one of many such instances. It did the journey in twenty days. Another dog was taken a hundred miles by train, and arrived back home in three weeks. A fox-terrier was taken a dis tance of 180 miles, but within a few .days it found -its way back to its old home. A Japanese collie was taken to the veterinary surgeon's with a painful affection of the ear and operated on. It was then taken back home over a mile away. The next -evening the dog found its way back to the sur gery, and as soon as the door was opened jumped on to the operating table and waited till the "vet." could attend to it. For many evenings after, punctually at eight'o'clock, it visited the surgery and submitted to the process, and then went home. A farmer took a horse irom an island to the mainland three miles by boat, worked it all day, ami let it loose. The next morning he was sur prised to find the horse graxir.?; near his sta...

A gentle man (-whose name is unknown to us), who is in the bridge construc tion party, gave an enjoyable item, "Ring down the Curtain." Mr. R.

The Dairying Industry. QUALITY OF BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 8 October 1914

The Dairying Industry. QUALITY OF BUTTlitt. The following is an extract of a debate taken from "Hansard" 511 re gard to the Improving of tin riuaiky of butter in this State, brought ai der notice by the Hon. J. W. Mel.ack lan:— ' ' Mr. McLachlan sa'd he desired to bring under the notice of the Gov ernment and the Minister , of Agri culture a matter; that ■ affected the State, and particularly those people who are engaged in. the dairying ia. fiustry. For some years efforts have been made to have a measure passed that would' have the effect ultimately ot placing a better quality of butter on the London market than has been placed ou that market during the last three or four years. It is said that there is a great deal ; of bad butter from Victor'a placed ; on the London Market. I do not think that the Government, or any of the dairying authorities in this State will deny it. Dairying is one of our most important industries, and it is the duty of the Govern ment to endeavor to take su...

The old padding's gone, and a sudden sharp sting Unpleasantly heralds the presence of spring. A certain politician has the happy knack of being able ;o [tarry incon venient interruptions with some smart, retort that immediately squashes the opposition. He was speaking at. a rather noisy meeting not long ago. and after a short time a big lump of wood was thrown at. him. Fortunate ly, the aim was bad, and it fell harm lessly 011 tlx.1 platform.

Quite Mistaken. "Mistakes are sometimes made among the medical fraternity which are very funny," says Dr. Carrel, of the Rockefeller Institute. "A senti mental young man sent the sons;. 'There's a Sigh in the Heart,' to the charming daughter of a well-known physician. The young man had writ ten the title on a Klip of paper a: tached to the outside of tin' music. "The young woman opened it in her father's study and the slip of paper bearing tlio words 'There's a Sigh in the Heart,' fell on the doctor's desk. The physician, finding the slip, ex claimed:— "'What unscientitlc rubbish is this? Who ever heard of sucii a caso?' "On the-slip of paper he wrote the following, after which he returned it to the young man's address, which was on the reverse side: — "'Mistaken diagnosis: no sigh in th^ heart possible. Sighs relate almost en tirely to the lungs and diaphragm.'"

THE MACHINE GUN. A Deadly Instrument of War. Something About It. (By "Barclay.") Wo have all heard and read so much about tho machine gun oi late tli.it we want to know something mora about it. This comparatively little weapon has played an important and terrible pari in the present war. We have read on several occasions lately that "machine guns mowed the oncom ing Germans down like corn," or some thing equally descriptive. There are several types of machine nuns. There is, for instance, the Maxim, Hotehkiss, Galling, Krupn. Gardner, .N'ordenfeldt, and the iilir hardt. Each gun is constructed much on the same principle, although there is a quick firing gun lhai lires small shells, and not the usual riile ammuni tion. The French and Germans some times call a machine gun a mitrail leuse. The only one I am acquainted with is the .Maxim, invented by Sir Hiram Maxim, and ii is a marvel of numan inventive power.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 8 October 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. To prevent the skin from discolor ing after a fall or blow, take a little dry starch, moisten it with cold water, and lay it 011 the injured part. To clean toilet bottles, put a little vinegar and salt into the bottle, allow to stand for two hours, and then rinse out in clear water. To restore a voice rendered hoarse by much speaking, eat. a piece of an chovy. If there is no cold or fatigue the el'fcct is almost instantaneous. In order to ensure a good gloss on starched collars, first mix the starch with cold water, add a tiny lump of butler about tho size of a small mar ble, then pour on the boiling water. Kor perspiring feet, bathe them fro <111011 (ly with warm water, to which a little ammonia has been added. After drying, the feet should bo dusted ovc with boracic powder.

FRENCH HUMOR. The French are not inclined to take things too serlouBly. Thus, while they love and respect the venerable French Academy, tlioy never refrain from mak ing it the subject of a little good natured wit. Even the members them selves, as this entry in Victor Hugo's notebook will show, indulge In occa sional sallies against the famous insti tution. On December 17, IS 10, Victor Hugj. himself one of the forty "immortal" members of the Acad my, wrote in his note-book: — "To-day, Thursday, in the Academv. I spoke there with Dupin the Elder about.

DON'T WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 8 October 1914

DON'T WORRY. Don't worry, though above your head Tho threatening storm clouds meet. Tho rainbow as of yore .shall spread Ita sign of promise sweet. The flowers fled when winter grey Proclaimed a^ain his cruel sway, Yet early blossoms smile and say, "Don't worry." Don't worry, though the noontide find Your footsteps faltering. The morn's glad hopes left far be hind— The day its joy shall bring. When sunset's radiant curtains fall, Sleep's angel, ready at the call Of night, shall whisper low to all, "Don't worry." Don't worry, though with little good Your eager quest seem fraught. He that has striven as he could Has striven as he ought. Ask not how destiny was planned, The little that we understand Is eloquent with the command, "Don't worry."
