Humiliated. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 15 October 1914

Humiliated. Sam hart worked oil the farm for nine yearn, and until his master took to poultry fanning lie was finite satis fied with life. I!ut this poultry business was a liit too much, lie hail to take the eggs as they were laid and -write the date on them with an indelible pencil. And. worse than thai, he had also to write on the esgs the breed of the lion that laid them. So one day he marched up to the farmer. "I'm about, fed up," .said he, "and I'm KoiiiK to leave!" The farmer was astounded. "Surely, Sam," said he, "you're not KoiiiK' to leave me after all these years?" "Yes, but I am," retorted Sain.

PIG POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 15 October 1914

PIG POINTS. ' It pays in hard cash to keep: the sows healthy and hearty, both before and after f.rrowing. i At this time of the year the place for the pigs is in the pasture. The shelters must be kept in good order. A little pig takeB cold easily and recovers slowly. To prevent this the shelters must be kept dry. The sow on pasture will seldom lose any pigs at' farrowing time. Young pigs never have thumps when running iu pasture. Gains are made: much more econ omically on pasture. Lucerne- makes an excellent pig •pasture.- ' Every pig raiser should have a patch of rape. When-it* is eaten down the pigs, should be taken oft untii the new growth starts up sufficiently. Cow-peas are also a fine supple mentary pasture for pigs. Pigs like variety; and make much more satisfactory and. profitable growth when this fact is kept in .mind. The boar needs good -food and plenty of exercise. Keep him, in his own-'strong quar ters, away from'the sows, and don't neglect him. •

"But, Dick, dearest, they are a birthday present.; tlie only one I've had so far." .My wife paused, in or :!er to give this reminder its due ef fect, and I flushed guiltily as 1 cursed my deficient memory.

THE AGRICULTURAL CYCLE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 22 October 1914

THE AGRICULTURAL CYCLE. The best system of agriculture is based upon good crops and well-bred live stock. Mr. C. W. Burkett, in "The First Principles of Feeding Farm Animals," aptly describes the cycle of life as the soil, the plant and the animal, each dependent on one another, and giving to, or receiving from, the others the things vital 16 Its very existence. Without soil there would lie no animals, and without plants or animals there would he a useless barren soil. There are twelve important elements that enter into and are essential to plant and animal growth. Animals, however, cannot gather them from either the soil or the air; nor would it be possible for the animals to use them if they could, as these elements would be poison 10 animal life. It is necessary for plants to take these elements and build them into tissue first. Oa this tissue the animal feeds. When the animal dies, with its decay an 1 .de composition, comes the changes of animal tissue back to 'soil and air, thu...

BATTLE OF THE PHOSPHATES. The Question of Citric Solubility. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 22 October 1914

BATTLE OF THE PHOSPHATES. The Question of Citric Solubility. Many farmer:; may remember the wcinly war that, occurred hoiih: years 2^1 between the n:lvocatcs of super phosphate, as representing water soluble phosphate, and the advocates of raw insoluble phosphate tinely ground. The struggle between tho two forms of phosphate was of short duration, and ended in a decisive vic tory for superphosphate. The battle of the phosphates has now been transferred t:: basic slag, and is being hotly contested be'.ween those who advocate that slag should be sold only on its percentage of cit rie-soluble (Wagner's test), and those who hold the opinion that the sale o: slag should not be restricted to this one method, which they characterise as arbitrary. The various champions of different methods back up their views by ar guments, and farmers must be puz zled as to which combatant deserves the prize—namely, the farmers' cus tom. So far no knock-out blow has been given, though to the onlooker the c...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 22 October 1914

II. It was with feelings of no little anxiety that J tended my patient dur ing his daughter's absence from home. And quite according to my expecta tion, the plot against Jasper Selcott's life still matured. I was literally ap palled by tho magnitude of his chil dren's wickedness. Hideous as their crime was of Itself, it was rendered doubly loathsome by the display of affection which they had invariably made for their victim. That a brother and sistor, who are scarcely more than boy and girl, should join in sciieming to do their old father to death was too awful to contemplate with any degree of calmness; hut detestable as such an action was, it would have lost some of its horror had it not been accompanied by such lavish protestations of love and ten derness. No words can serve to ox prc.ss the repugnance with which I was tilled. For some time I was at a loss what course to pursue, but at length determined to roundly accuse Reginald Seleott, face to face, of the dastardly deed. Ther...

FARM JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 22 October 1914

FARM JOTTINGS. Heading seed catalogues is like telling fortunes — the result:? aren't guaranteed. If the ploughman does liis work well, lie will make it easy for the man with the harrow and the cultivator. You can hardly make sod ground too mellow for potatoes. The more thorough you are with the harrow, the more work you will save yourself with the cultivator. Cow-peas will give the farmer who grows them a good crop and at the same time nia'.o the land hotter. AVc certainly need to get them into our crop rotation more generally. A soil kept loose all the time by thorough cultivation will enable maize to stand a drought better than it otherwise would. Cultivation often takes the place of rain for a time. The feed for the brood eow before farrowing -should he nutritious but not concentrated. Sows kept in close quarters with no exercise never make satisfactory breeders. If sows arc to be changcd from one pen to another, lead them out with a pail of slop or .■grain. Grain scattered on t...

GENEROUS LIPTON. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 22 October 1914

GENEROUS UPTON. "It requires a lot of courage and charity to "be philanthropic,' said Sir, Thomas Lipton. "I remember when I was just starting in business.- I was very poor, and making every sacri fice to enlarge my little shop. My only assistant was a boy of fourteen, faithful, willing and honest. One day I heard him complaining, and with justice, that his clothes were so shab by that he was ashamed to go to any place of worship on Sunday. 'There' is no chance of my getting a new suit, this year,', he told me. '£«<»'« work, aadsit £«*"» «" my wages K> pay the rent. "I thought the matter over, and then took a sovereign from my carefully hoarded savings and bought the boy a stout, warm suit of blue cloth. He was so grateful that I felt repaid for my sacrifice.
