No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 30 January 1914
In. the eighties tie southern penltiaý of the then old Swan Hill Shire was severed and crpated a separate shire, which took the name of Gordon., Partly from tih fact that the people in the southern paLts of the old shire were not satisfied with the-' management of municipal matters in KeIltig and de sired to manage their own affairs m thelr own way, and also on account of settlement taking place so rapidly. during the p.rvious decade, so that the old hire had gr'wn too large and unwieldy, the new Shire of Gordon was constituted., At *ih.t time the Swan Hill Shire had learlsed to borrow, and borrlow freely.. Trusting to memory, we think there were two loans current, one for £5,000 and another for £15,000 At that time, as a consequence of the country being rapidly taken up by se lectors, thptk was an urgent need for new road formations, culverts, bridges, etc., The necessity for making pas4 able roads with all the speed possible was evident to every one and the only way to 'supply the...

How Animals Bear Pain. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 30 January 1914
How Animals Bear Pain. One of the most pathetic things is the manner in which the animal kingdom endures suffering. 'Take horses, for in stance, in battle. After the first shock of a wound they make no sound. They bear the pain with a mute, wondering enduranco, and if at night you hear a wild groan from the battle-field it comes from their lonelin ess. The dog will carry a broken leg for days wistlully, but uncomplainingly. T'he cat, stricken with stick or stone, or caught in some trap from 'which it knows its way to freedom, crawls to some secret place and bears in silence pain which we could not endure. Sheep and cattle nmeet the thrust of the butcher's knife without a sound, and even common poultry endure in tense agony without complaint. The diove, shot unto death, flies to some far-off bough, and as it dies the silence is unbroken save for the patter on the leaves of its own life-blood. The wounded deer speeds to some thick brake, and in pitiful submission waits for death. The ...
An Aviator's Dilemma. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 30 January 1914
An Aviator's Dilemma. Mr. Hans J. Weideman, one of Amer ica's young aviators, is in a dilemma. He wants to get married, and he wants to accept the worry and anxiety of hay him by an uncle in Germany; but lie wants to continue flying, and the most eligible girl he has met so far declines to accept the worry anda nxiety of har ing an aviator as a husband. As soon as he was notilied that ihe was heir to the fortune, his first idea was to develop his aviation scheime; but lie learned that there was a proviso in his uncle's will which prevented him from obtaining the money until he was married. If lie does not marry before reaching the age of forty the legacy will go to a German eugenic fund. Ho promptly asked a young lady in Los Angeles to marry him and share the fortune, but she insisted that he should give up flying. This lie declined to do, and he is now disconsolately seekuig an eligible girl who will not olfject to marrying an aviator.
A FARMER'S HORSE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 30 January 1914
A FARMER'S HORSE TALK. A practice too common on farms, said a South Australian farmer recent ly, was to turn horses out in the pad docks where there was very little feed when they are not workiig; for in stance, on Sundays and other off days. At such times they should be fed in the stable, as they require rest and time to build up lost condition. little green picking, some men saic, was as good as a dose of medicine. They forgot the bad effect it had on the horses' appetites. It will put them right off the feed that had been the staying powers, namely, chaff and corn. Eaten-out stubble paddocks were also very bad for horses to graze on. They picked after the loose grains of wheat, and gathered up a lot of dirt, whicli caused stoppage of the bowels. Horses should have pure drinking water. Well water was preferable, and it \ras always clean, and usually contained a little salt. If dam water had to be used, no drainage from any yard should get into it, as it was such filth that the dre...
People Will Talk. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 30 January 1914
People Will Talk. You may get through the world, but. " 'twill be "very slow If you listen to all that is said as you go; You'll he worried and fretted and kept in a stew, For meddlesome tongues must have something to do And people will talk. If quiet and modest, you'll have it pre sumed That your humble position is only as- ai sumed. You're a wolf in sheep's clothing, or else you're a fool; But don't get excited, keep perfectly cool For people will talk. And then ify ou show the least,boldness of heart, or a slight inclination to take your owu. pal,, They will call you an upstart, conceit ,d, and vain; But keep straight ahead-don't stop to explain For people will talk. If threadbare your dress and old-faslh ioned your hat Someone will surely take notice of that, And hint rather strong that you can't pay your way; . But don't get excited, whltever they say For people will talk. If your dress is in fashion, don't think to escape, For they criticise then in a different shape You're ah...
SOIL FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 30 January 1914
SOIL FERTILITY. The whole problem of the soil fer tility is inextricably woven with bac terial formentation. tFrom the origin of the soil through its use by plants, and the subsequent destruction of their original condition of the products form ed, we find nearly every step accom panied by bacterial action. The con tinual fertility of the soil is thus asso ciated with bacterial life. In the fu ture the problem of the proper treat ment of the soil for the use of agri culture will be, in a very large de gree, a p1roblem of the proper control of bacteria. Agriculturists must learn to stimulate the bacterial actions which are advantageous, and cheek those which are disadvantageous, :f they would ensure the continual soil fer tility. Perfect cultivation is one of the best means of encouraging the right kind of bacteria, moisture and warmth being the most essential items in en couraging this increase, therefore, to cultivate the land thoroughly means to increase soil fertility.
CROP ROTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 30 January 1914
CROP ROTATION. Rotation of crops are maintained for three principal purposes: (1) to main tain soil fertility, (2) to provide pro fitable cash crops, and (3) to provide roughage and frain for live-stock. A proper balance must be secured be tween all these. It is always essen tial that fertility' be maintained, so that this is a prime requisite in arrang ing a rotation. Live-stock farming is seldom profitable unless some cash crops are grown for sale. :Even as spe cialised an industry as poultry-raising is rarely as profitable' when carried on alone as when it is a non-competing part of a general farm system. Cash crops are, therelore, iuportant. The growing of roughage for live-stock is almost equally essential. It is not al ways advisable to try to produce the grain required for live-stoclk ,owu:revr, as on much of the land adapted to the raising of live-stock grain cannot lie produced as cheaply as elsewhere. It may, therefore, be cheaper to :nurchase the grain than to raise it. A...
IMPORTANCE OF FALLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 30 January 1914
IMPORTANCE OF FALLOW. It is hardly necessary to reiterate the arguments in favor of sowing cereal crops on well-tilled fallow, especially in those districts where the seasons are cold and wet, or, on the other hand, short and dry. In the first case, the conservation of moisture is not import ant, but the amelioration of the soil to a condition of sweetness and friableness is. On heavy wet' soils, the beneficial influence of rains and sunshine, and wind cannot he over-estimated. Where under-draivage can be supplied, so much the better : if this cannot le done, then surfgie drains will often be found to \keep the accumulated winter rains from making ponds or sodden swamps of the low-lying ground. Working the soil will help to aerate it, and will have an important bearing upon results. But in many cases drainage is essential; on the other hand, this provision is sel dom 'necessary in the drier wheat growing areas, where evr'y olportun ity may be availed of to conserve in the soil as mu...

Many; strikers, including a number . of Australians, are leav ing Africa.
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 30 January 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. Cucumber rind cut into thin slips and put about where ants abound will in variably drive them away. To prevent flies from settling on pic tures and furniture, soak some leeks in a pail of water for some time and wash the articles with the water. To break in a new pen point quickly. dip it in ink and hold it in the flame of a lighted match for a second. Wipe and dry with a cloth ,and then it will hold ink as well as one much older. To clean old jewellery, make a lath er of warm soapsuds and add to it lialf a teaspoonful of sal volatile; brush the jewellery in this, afterwards phlishing with an old silk handkerchief or picpe of wash-leather. Before using a new saucepan fill it with water with a lump of soda and some potato peelings and let it boil for s6me hours. Then wash out thorough ly and all danger from poisoning from the tinned lining will be gone. To do away with excessive perspira tion under the arms, bathe the armpits with tepid water and a little tincture o...
