Birds Shot with Water. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 26 February 1914

Birds Shot with Water. ♦ Shooting n humming l»Ird with the smallest bird-shot made is out of the question, for the tiniest seeds of lend would destroy his cont. The only wny in which the bird can he captured for commercial purposes is to shoot him with a drop of water from a blow-gun or a fine jet from r small syringe. Skilfully directed, the water stuns him. lie falls in a silken not, and before he recovers consciousness is suspended over a cyanide jar. This must be done quickly, for if he cornea to his wnws before the cya nide whifl smuffs out his life he is sure to ruin hif» plumage in his struggles to escape. Humming birds vary in si/e from specimens perhaps half as large as a sparroM* to those scarcely bigger than a bee. Not only is powdered oitmeul good for the complexion, but a little of it thrown into the Water in which the face and hands are bathed has a aofteuing aod whitening effect.

Horse Racing in Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 26 February 1914

Horse Racing in Australia, Devotion to horserncing would not, by some people, be consider ed a good advertisement for a young nation. Australians are very fond of horseflesh of all descriptions, nnri they patronise the rucecotir.se to a greater extent than the residents of any other country. It is remark able that the various racing clubs of Australia pay awuv £01212,000 annu ally in prize money. This exceeds by £1'*1,000 the total amount paid nut by the race of Great Hritain and Ireland, including £50,000 riven for races under National Hunt Hub's. Hacing In Australia is attended by very little vice. The betting is not excessive, and the great amounts paid in prize mono." serve chiefly to demonstrate the extraordinary prcp.serity which is enjoyed by all classes of the inhabitants. Horse racing, too, is a gr»»ai stimulant to the borse-breedinc industry, which is one of the (.'oinmon'A'eulth'p I ig rural assets. Those who think that a strong disposition to horse-racing does not j;o wi...

A Tomato Hint. ♦ When growing toniatocw f«ut of doors an ordinary Turin hurdlo is one of the best means of supporting them. The plants should he point ed 2 feet apart. By tying the shoots from time to time to the bars they are spread out and not crowded, as when a single st.0«c Is used. Tuiring the summer the whole hurcJlo will bo covered with foliage. , When tying, use soft tu o-ply sti ing; J buss or raffia is not strong enough to enrry tlie weight of the fruit. Tie loosely, as the steins swell to a good thickncss. I Ail shoots below (lie fruits must' be diligently removed ns soun aa* they appear. Do not cut uwny leaves unless it may be here nml ■ tlioce one that quite covers a | bunch of fruit. Kcmoving foliage from any plant only weakens it. Do not give too much water un less the ground is very dry. Put a mulch round the roots after the fruit is set, and water in the morn ing or evening when nccessary.

The Clergyman Began It. ! The following story is i.old of a Yorkshire parish. A young clergy i iikiti utis taking holiday tinty in a j moorland district, whore* the church goers were largely made up of fur-* liters and shepherds. The latter were in the habit of bringing their dogs with thcin to church, and, like their masters, they listened quiet ly during the sermon. The new chrg.rman, at his first, service, started intoning, which the people considered Itomish, and, unused to an innocation, one of the dogs commenced to -gowl. "Take that dog out !" enjoined the clergyman; bui -no one moved, and he proceeded with the service. The intoning was renewed, and so also was the howl ing. "Take that dog-out!" com manded the clergyman. "I told you before to have it removed." One of the shepherds rose from his ' seat and dragged the animal out side. Presently shuffling feet were heard coming up the aisle, and tho shepherd resumed his seat ; but, turning to tho clergyman, he re ; marked, "You ...

How Horses and Sparrows Work Us Mischief. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 26 February 1914

How Horses and Sparrows Work Us Mischief. Kecent scientific discoveries arc gradually making us aware of the fact thnt the hor.se, long consider ed'one of mail's most useful friends, is in many ways one of lha worst enemies. Lockjaw is only one of the deadly perils for which the horse is directly responsible. It is now known thnt the germ of lockjaw, or "tetanus," as science terms it, is a common inhal.ntant of the intestinal cati.il of the equine beast. When, as often hap pens," gardens are fertilised with horse manure, their suit becomes rich in tetanus microbes. It is very dangerous lor children to run about barefooted in the streets, be cause, if they happen to cut their feet, lockjaw germs are liable to in fect the wounds. It is estimated that 05 per cent, of nil the housefiies in cities are bred in stables whore horses are kept—horse manure bei».< preferred by tho insects to oil other sub stances as incubnting material for their eggs.

The Extension of Cooperation. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 5 March 1914

The Extension of Co operation. It is probable that the inventor of steam had little concept ion of the far-reaching effwt of the dis covery or the wide range of uses that the new force would b<? put to in the service of man. It is something the same with "Co-operation." Here we have a tremendous force which bus so far only been exerted, to any extent, in the one direction. A huge indus try has been built up upon this solid foundation of united effort, and \vc have often wondered if far mers ever realise to what extent they might still further benefit by 1 lie system, applied to other things. Kor instance, if it is a profitable and feasible thing for fifty farmers to own a factory amongst them— why shouldn'-t it be also profitable and still more feasible, for thoso fifty farmers to own amongst them a manure-spreader, costing, sny, JCoO ?
