SOLACE OF READING. LORD ROSEBERY'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
SOLACE OF READING. LORD IU)SEBE11Y'S ADVICE. Tile Earl of Rosebery visited Glas gow and was present at the Royal Technical College to witness the oere mony of receiving the new associates. In the course of an address, he said:— As regards "your own avocations, pro fessions, and handicrafts that you are going to pursue, 1 will only venture to give you this piece of advice — throw ail your energy and your pride into your craft, perfect it, and exalt it by your devotion, By doing so you will infinitely extend your own talents, and you will raise your whole conception of a life devoted to the profession which you have chosen. It is only by unit ing these high ideals to the practice of life that any success undur any cir cumstances can be attained. Just consider for a moment. if you re gard your own avocation as a daily grind, only meant to grind money out for your own support, it coases to have any good influence on your life, and as your connection with it grows longer a certain repuls...

ON GOLDEN WINGS - &lt;,By ,W. Howell Poole.) CHAPTER XXXII. AT THE DIEPPE HOTEL. 1 thought to act a solemn comedy Upon the painted scene of this New World, And to attain my own peculiar -ends By some such plot of mingled good and ill AS others weave, but there uprose -a power Wlucii grasped anil snapped the threads of my device, Aud turned it "to a net of>uin. —Slielky.

WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambro.sinJ.") l'V)r whole costume suits you will be surprised to see how the little bolero coat is creeping back to fashion, But instead of it being cut oil' just at the waist it is covered with a- wide draped sash, and below it on the skirt conies what we call either a peplum or tuuio. It' you wear the skirt indoory with a blouse the sa.sh still does duty in pull ing the costume together. There is 110 doubt that these little boleros can be made smart, and lor certain 1'uuotioiis made up 111 giaco siiks they will be iin meUMily popular, ior you can so easily when driving wear home form of wrap which covers the entire costume, and which keeps you warm and free of dust. But 1 think the bolero requires a slim, girlish ligure; you must be. slight everywhere to wear so trying a garment. You get no help from it below the waist. The ligure is cut in twain. There is another thing, too, which must be considered. Since the bolero went into retreat the outline of women's...

SOIL PROBLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
SOIL PROBLEMS. Scientists have viewed the properties of the soil from many standpoints. At one time it was thought that the solu tion of the fertilising problem would be found by the return to the soil of the principal fertilising ingredients extract ed by the crop. This seemed simple enough, but unfortunately had to bo abandoned as unsatisfactory, as it life out of account the complex nature of r the soil and the chemical, biological, and physioal agencies, which all exert influences of & more or less important character. Of late years these obscure agencies have received more attention, and the importance of further investi gation seem to be well warranted. Their study lias beoomo an established and well recognised part of the soil prob lem . Bacterial activities have, under the light of modern science, been shown. Zo exert «. great influence in soil pro ductiveness, the kinds and abundance of the bacteria carrying in the func tions of fertility according to the suit abili...
AGRICULTURE IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
AGRICULTURE IN GERMANY. Edited at the English Foreign Of fice and Board of Trade, the report of the Consul-General for the important district of Dusseldorf has just been is sued. This report contains some highly instructive information about the posi tion of agriculture to- Germany, and affords a' glance' at its enormous deve ■tiDiueut. The wheat and sugar/'.beetroot crops of 1911! ..were very much larger than those of 1911. 'Unfortunately, the quality of . the .crops was somewhat marred by the unpropitious weather; the latter rather spoiled the spring sown barley and oat crops, and all the wheat crops suffered from tho wet sum mar. The rye crops, which ripen ear lier, were good, both in quantity and quality., The statistics for tho last three years show an increase of 300,000 tons in the wheat crop and an increase of 732,000 tons in the rye crop. The rye crop of 1912 was a record' one. The oat and barley crops were larger in 1912 than 1911, and the potato ci'op of 1912 surpassed th...
AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. To finish oattle well is one of the ob jects of the feeder, and oatmeal has a great reputation in this way. It is said to impart that hardness of touch to the flesh which the butcher likes. The best way to fe9d it is merely to damp it and roll into balls, allowing the animal to partake of it at leisure. There should not be more than 3 per cent, of milk-fat in the whey, which is the serum remaining after the curd has been removed, in the manufacture of cheese. Whey should bo transparent and of a greenish color. When a cheese has been carelesslj* made the whey is rich in fat, and of a whitish or milky color. Turpentine, in which is dissolved as much camphor as it will take up, is pre-eminently the dressing for lacera tions, bruises, and cuts. Its antiseptic action is equal to that of carbolic acid, it speedily stops the bleeding, allays the pain, and hastens the process of healing. Few, if any, ulcers long re sist its continual application. The nature of the soil h...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST j (By "Rusfcious.") At the time of writ ing the prospects | lor autumn are not cheering. Tli" long-continued dryness and the advent of mornings that .suggest til a approach of frost point to a bad winter. This applies particularly to the dairying industry. The Western district is! badly in need of immediate ram, whicli, | if it1 falls within the next week or so, j niigln. cause an increase in the supply of milk and butter. Otherwise id will i be very unlikely that any iucreaso will take placp in the supply ooming to Melbourne from that quarter until June or July. The butter now coming to Melbourne from many factories is very poor in quality. Owing to the small supplies of cream in many parts of the country farmers' cans take Ion- I ger to till, and consequently produoe only very indifferent butter. Condi tions are generally very dry along the Murray, less than oin. of rain having fallen in nine months. The irrigation an as are producing a little butter, but ninny l...

INDIAN CATTLE CANE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 23 April 1914
INDIAN CATTLE CANE. iii the Iiiaivarra district, New South Wales, an experiment with Indian oorn has been carried out at Gerringong by j Mr. Thus. Burke. This fodder has I hitherto been thought only suitable for warm and humid climates, such as the North Coast. lu November, 1910, Mr. Burke obtained sufficient cuttings for a plot tiO x 30 feet, and planted in drills 6 inches deep, 4 feet apart. The cut tings were planted in pairs 3 feet apart on the drilis. Since planting two out tings have been taken, and another is now ready. Ho found the cane best where growth was concerned oight months after planting, and equally good affer each successive cutting. The one planting is supposed to give good results for five years. From observations Mr Burke has found cattle improve in con dition when fed on it, and take to it readily, though its milk producing qua lities are not equal to maize or lucerne. Pigs cat the stalks readily and they fat ten well when it is given as fodder. Calves thrive o...
CHAPTER XXII. A NEW ACQUAINTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 April 1914
I ■ ' f ~ CHAPTER XXII. A NEW ACQUAINTANCE. | It Ts little wonder that Dick was I'surprised by this unexpected and [beautiful revelation. The gateway j.ha,d kept its secret well, appearing I until the last moment to lead only j to a tiny, rock-girt harbour. But, on I the contrary, here was a lagoon of -placid silvers water, stretching: in bothNdirections until its noble sweep was hidden by the curve of its shores. It- was no more than a quarter, of a mile wide, and so deep and clear that one could see perfect reflections of the natural bulwarks that confin ed it—the lofty rim of cliffs on the j seaward side, and the parallel and | opposite-lying frontage of the island proper. Dick's eyes sparkled as he gazed, and a spell of enchantment held him tong.ue-tied. Before him the fortress ' wall towered proudly,- the smoking guns still peering* from the square | holes. Over the top of the parapet many heads were visible, and higher in air swarmed birds that had been | disturbed by the thun...
CHAPTER XXI. THE END OF THE VOYAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 April 1914
CHAPTER XXI. THE END OF THE VOYAGE. Dick's bands trembled a little and. bis heart throbbed with ijuickening strokes as he gazed steadily ahead. B«fc liis curiosity was only increased, not gratified. The mystery was a mystery still, though very close in deed did the glasses bring that grey patch on the bosom of the sea. "Well, what do you think of it ?" Captain Gore asked. "What do you make out ?" "First, a line of surf," answered Dick, "and after that another line marked by bigger and more violent breakers. .Then an island like one great rock, rising sheer from the water. I should say that it was round in formation and perhaps eight or ten miles, in diameter." "Good ! And is tnat all you see ?" "No ; there is a pointed object visible above the top of the island, but I can't make out. what it is. I think it is a considerable distance back, and it may be a pinnacle of stone." "Anything else ?" "Nothing else," said Dick, taking a long look before lie replied ; "un less you mean that de...

(All Rights Reserved.) ft Story of a Strange and Exciting Adventure. ! * * By W. Murray Graydcm, Author ol j "Matthew Quln," "The Curse o£ the Cardews," etc., etc. PART 8. CHAPTER XX. AFTER MANY DAYS. But the young Englishman, found none—Mary Ferris excepted—to share bis melancholy that morning. From end to end of the cruiser all was ex citement and eagerness, light-hearted laughter and jesting. Home was in sight—a haven of refuge and rest. Groups of men picturesque in cool, white clothing, stood looking for ward from the bulwarks. The officers moved about with smiling faces, Ja son Gore conspicuous among them in fresh linen and a new suit of blue serge, g,ud with the benignant expres sion of a man who would riot will ingly harm a fly. The gap of the past six weeks, un eventful though it was, requires a brief mention. The fog that had blot-, ted out the two American men-of war lasted all night, the cruiser steaming through it at reckless speed, and in the morning a deserted sea was ...

SHOCKING FATAUT1SS. TWO ON SAME DAY AT , ST. ARNAUD.. Two fatal accidents occurred' at St. Arnaud on Wednesday of last week, and m each case the circumstances are very sad. A porter named W. I. Lawrence, who had only been at the station for a fortnight,, was engaged shunting. The engine was slowly packed up to a truck, and Lawrence went between tho buffers to couple up. The driver heard- a noise like groaning, and on jumping down was horrified to find the unfortunate man lying across the rail between the wheels of the tender. The body was shockingly mutilated,. | and it is surmised that he was killed instantly. Deceased leaves a widow and two children. The second fatality-befel Mr James Bray, a well known local resident.
