BREEDING ERRORS. A lew common errors which the sheep-fanner should avoid are the following:— The choice of unsuitable country; the choice ot unsuitable breeds; over stocking; the purchase of mixed non descript ewes; the use of cross bred rams; placing too much dependence upon the natural pastures; failure to cull drastically.

LICK FOR SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 February 1914

LICK FOR SHEEP. Sheep should have access to a lick or salt, as it aids the assimila tion of rood, and has a salutary effect upon many parasites. A good lick is made of:—101b. Liverpool salt, -lib. muphate or iron, and 51b. ot lime, l'he iron is a good blood tonic. The lime may make good any deficiency or that material in the pastures, and is cUen very beneficial to young growing sheep. Such a lick prevents that unnatural appetite in sheep which sometimes takes the torm ot eating dried poisoned rabbits and othc-r decaying animal tissues. It should be covered trom the rains. All excess of salt may interfere with nu trition by causing sheep to drink too much water, which may lead to a waste of the albumenoids of the feed.

The Heart of a Girl. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER X.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 February 1914

The Heart of a Girl. By HENRY F/.RMER, Author of "The iMoney-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER X.—Continued. Thome's hand closed over the bank-note. The general public had con signed the Hasted bank robbery to the limbo of forgotten tilings. The police had pigeon-lioled it. Only a very small portion ot the money stolen, in the shape of notes concealed in Stan more's bedroom, had been recovered at the time. ~ The police theory had been, and was, that the bulk, composed mostly of notes, bonds, and securities, the greater part being more or less negotiable with caution, might after a time filter back into circulation, probably on the Continent. The race course was another recognised place for the getting rid of stolen notes. The police were pretty sure on one sub ject, whether Stanmore had invented the story of Roy Staunard to distract attention from his real confederate, or had worked the robbery single handed: wren Stanmore had served his t...

I am writing to support the Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Kutter, who has already reported on the matter Residents are proud of their town, and naturally, becauso Yarram is a live and progressive, but though it has progressed in wealth and buildings, except for parts of the town, an attempt has not been made to have a proper drainage scheme, and the present state of the drainage is truly appalling, Tne three essentials for the health of a town are—light, water, and drainage. We have plenty of the former. Water, we have an even rainfall for domestic uses, and the creek water for outside use:-. The drainage is, as i have already mentioned, appalling.

CHAPTER XI. -My dear che-ild—Michael—tile dear fellow—has told me the great and joyous news. Bless you, Queeuie! May your married life be one long summer day, flooded with sunshine and cloudless; may your only troubles be little ones. Throughout my life, a life of disappointment and perpetual grim fight against adverse circumstan ces, my first thought has been always my wife's and our children's welfare their happiness. My heart is too full for a long letter. I know not "whether to weep or Jaugh. The thought of los ing you—it seems only yesterday I was tip-toeing into the bedroom where you nestled, a new-born little mite, in your dear mother's arms; -what more beautiful, more touching picture?—the thought of losing you would be un bearable, but for the knowledge that I am surrendering my dear daughter to a strong, noble, worthy fellow who will cherish, love, and honor her.

CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 February 1914

CHAPTER XII. Queenie was alone in her bedroom. The morrow was her wedding-day. She was to be married in her travelling gown, and it lay outspread on her bed: A large box, branded Voile and Co., contained her hat. Two large travel ling trunks occupied further space. The 'family were gathered together at Southbourne. Mr. Gordon Price and Philip were staying at an hotel hard by, and Beryl, who seemed affected with a chronic redness of her eyelids, had 'obtained a room in the same house as lier mother and Queenie. Michael Thome was bearing all ex penses—it was his party—though the fact was transparently glazed over by the fiction that Mr. Price had been recently successful in business opera tions in the city. Early that afternoon Michael Thorne, accompanied by the friend who 'was to figure as best man, had motored down from London. Queenie was alone in her bedroom, though the rest of the family were gathered together in Mrs. Price's pleasant sitting-room overlooking the sea. Mrs. Price'...

FAMOUS SLOVENS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 February 1914

FAMOUS SLOVENS. It is surprising how careless of their outer nppearanco many famous men have been. It is said of Turner, the great landscape painter, that his hands were tiie smallest and dirtiest hands on record. Perhaps that is an exaggera tion, but he was certainly very slovenly in his dress. He wore a black swallow tail dress coat, very much in need of a clothes-brush vigorously applied, and in the warmest as well as in the eoldest weather he wore around his throat a sort of wrap or muffler, which he would unloose, letting tho ends dangle down in front and dip into the colors of his palette, lie always worked either with his old hat on his head or with this same largo muffler over his head. His appearance was moro liko that of an old-timo coachman than of a famous ltoyal Academician, for ho was short and stout, with a red and blotchy face. l>r. Johnson's slovenliness has almost passed into a proverb. There are many contemporary accounts of his .turning out of his house in, Bo...

PURCHASING EWES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 February 1914

PURCHASING EWES. Of merino owes the farmer has many to choose from. The small man is always at a ■disadvantage in purchasing small lots. The pastoral ist prefers to sell in large drafts. Of cross-bred ewes the supply is limited. A Jew breeders have considered it advisable to cater for this trade, but bo far the supply is not equal to the demand. This means that such ewes are commanding high prices. Of comeback ewes there is also a limit ed supply. Of nondescripts there are far too many, and these should he strenuously avoided. The ewes pur chased should be all of one class, and preferably of one age and ear mark. Small mixed lots from dealers or saleyards always prove unsatis factory, as the wool from such is so mixed as to command but the low est prices, and the progeny lacks that uniformity so necessary to command the best figures under the hammer.

DOES SHEARING LAMBS PAY? [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 13 February 1914

DOES SHEARING LAMBS PAY? . The keen demand which lias pre vailed all througgli the wool season, and, as a matter of fact, tor several seasons past, for lambs' wool, and the excellent prices which rule for this description, should be a conclu sive answer to the question so often asked: Does it pay to shear lariibs? It certainly does pay, aud the trade would readily absorb a much larger Quantity of hufflbs' woo! were it available. As a matter of fact, wool users are grumbling over (lie falling off in the volume of this description, which is no doubt attributed to the high shearing rates. High as shear ing races and labor costs are, how ever, it pays to shear lambs, and take reasonable care in presenting it to buyers. It should be classed, -where there Is a fair-sized lot, in firsts, sec onds and thirds. This is no very dif ficult matter, the main consideration in sorting being length and condition. A fair length is desirable. Short lambs' wool has 'been siUiiig with little Irregularit...
