In many farming districts of Aus tralia rnoro attention is now bcins; priitl than formerly to the importance of preserving tho nntive timbor on the farms for shade and shelter mid of supplementing natural growth where this is deficient. Tho finest example of what may bo done by judicious planting of shelter belts is to be found on the farms and pastoral estates of the Western district of Victoria, Nowhore in Australia is to bo found greater euterpriso in this direction than on the open plains from Skipton to Lismoro, and neighboring districts.

PREPARING AND SOWING SHELTER BELTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 27 March 1914

PREPARING AND SOWING SIlELi'EIl BliLTS. Autumn is the best peiiod of the year for this work. The native trees of Australia are hanly and rapid growers, nntl will quickly respond to the simple and inexpensive methods which have been devised by years of experiment on the Western plains of Victoria. If trees for shelter had to bo obtained from a nursery or even raised on the farm and then trans planted to permanent positions, the work would bn too- BIOW and costly for extensive planting. All this ia ob viated by adopting Western district methods. Plough a strip a chain or half a chain in width round the pad docks, work this to a fine tilth, fence the strip off with a light fence which will keep the stock out for four or five years, until the trees are established, sow the tree seeds broadcast and cover in with a light brush harrow. The same methods will serve for establish ing clumps at intervals over the farm

A WILD WEST STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 27 March 1914

A WILD WEST STORY. Thirty years ago, in the days of the Western mining boom (writes a travel ler), the following incident occurred on the Union Pacific Railway: We were rolling along between Salt Lake and Omaha when I made my way Into the'smoking car to enjoy a cigar, f noticed a group gathered in the cen tre of the car, and crowding my way up, saw two men gambling. Ono was a well-dressed man, but bearing the general appearance of a blackleg: tho other was n veritable miner, just as he came from the mountains, with long, grizzled beard, rough, coarse, and dirty clothes, but with lots of gold. The play was for quite large stakes, anil 1 heard whispers that the gambler tvas about to ileeco tho minor, and much sympathy was manifested for him. The game-draw-pokar-s'.ill went on. with hardly a word .=poi;en by tho players; till linally, when a large sum was on the board, the gam bler, being called to show his hand, threw down three aces and two queens, and reached for tho money; the mine...

Leon Mon tejo was in the boat with four of the crew, and after exchanging a few words with Captain Gore, he shot a ; glance at Dick that was -full of men ace and hatred. Dick returned it scornfully, and then gave his entire attention to the Juno. The ship had a crippled appearance as she laj heaving on the swell. A few men were leaning from the rail, two were on tho bridge, and othors were bust ling about with considerable excite ment and noise. Tho launch cnmc up ». to the iiner amidships, where a ladder had been put out, and with cool impudence Captain Gore and six of bis men clambered aboard tho Juno, Pet^r Smock prodding Dick from-behind.

CROWS CAN ONLY COUNT THREE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 27 March 1914

CROWS CAN ONLY COUNT THREE. A short time ago a gentleman who was aunoyeil with crows in a newly sown field, placed some carrion-a dead animal-in the field, within gun shot ot a small hut, In which he in tended to hide himself and thus get a shot at the crows. But they always knew when he was in the hut, and ? would not come near the bait until they saw him clear away from his hiding-place. Ho thought he would still be a match for them, so tool; his son along with him to the hut, who soon after went away, the crows malt ing a note of the /act, crylnif caw, as ?much as to say there goes one, but there is another behind; and not a single bird would come near the car case. He thereupon took two persons with him, who soon after left one at a time, the crows looking on with much interest, crying out, caw, caw; but knowing that the right number had not yet left, they still kept aloof. Ho then took another person, making four with himself, Into the hut, who left as before, and this time the...

He kept in fairlj pnod spirits, and did not let himself think much of the future. A bath-room adjoined hiB cabin, and be was provided daily with clean I linen. He had Rood wine and cigars, and the meal* brought to him equal led the cuisine of a big ocean liner. The "something tn rend" promised by Captain Gore was in the form of newspapers, English and American, which covered a period of several months. They contained marked para graphs, and these Dick found very interesting. Ilriedy put, they showed that the public had bogun to connect recent loss of ships, the p...

THE DAIRY. ABOUT BUYING COWS [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 27 March 1914

THE DAIRY. ABOUT BUYING COWS A representative letter from an English dairy farmer in t.hc "British Agricultural Press" says: - "Cow buying is a very uncertain business. There is much faking in the cow mar ket, hut home-bred heifers are at least honest. Horns may he rubbed down, and udders stocked, and other purchases may turn out deceptive owing to udders being what is known as fleshy. Many cows milk well for tbc first two or three months, and then quickly dry off, and these are just the animals which will he run round and offered for sale after their next calving." Some cows which milk ed well in their own homes do badly when transferred to a new place. Some are sold because they are kick ers, or liable to blow or suffer from some recurring ailment. "No one doubts that heifers are safer buying than cows, but the fact remains that we are losing ground as to the supply of milking cuttle by the system of dealing too exclusively with cows.
