ALLEGED CUSTOMS FRAUD WHY MOTOR BODIES ARE CHEAP. KEEN COMPETITION. (Reuter's Telegram.) London, Jan. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 2 January 1914
ALLEGED CUSTOMS FRAUD WHY ,MOTOR BODIES ARE CHEJP. KEEN. COMPETITION. (Renter's Telegram.) SLondon, Jan. 1. Further evidence was given to-day by Mr. Shiorland, manager of the Olemeat-Talbot Motor Manufacturing Company; hi-lo .e:lcse in which Rot ort Mfilburn, Waltoner Keisley, Ed ward Idle and Bruce Cuthbhrtson are ollreged with conspiring together, and with others, to defraud the Australian customs of largo sums of money in conllnection with the . importation of motor cars and accessories from Great Britain. ,Mr. Shorland testified that his com pany had fixed a low price for the bodies of their cars, as it was to their interest to keep down the value of dutiable parts. The prices of tyres fol lowed the priqt of rubber. The eata logae issued by the Clement-Talbot Company allowed for tile wearihg of tyres in testing a complete car. These allowances and values wore bused on a minute calculation and with a view to thi keen competition in the trade. They were vital to the company. TIlh ...

FOR THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 3 January 1914
FOR THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. B. Harrison, Burringbar, Tweed River, inquires as to the proper meth od of making a good and cheap com post heap, for manuring purposes. The compost heap is a most valu able adjunct to a farm or orchard. The principle of this method of mak ing manure is the fermentation of easily-decomposed vegetab!e material in the presence of earth and lime. I is not only substances like peat, litter, straw, which form the usual basis of compost heaps that are thus decom possble, but almost every kind of or ganic substance, both of vegetable and animal origin, can be thus composted. Dead leaves, bush scrapings, sawdust. weeds. tops and stalks of. vegetables, as well as bone and animal refuse, the operation is much slower, .nd sub stances like bones should be first crushed. It is also important to be sure that animal refuse so treated is not derived from a diseased source. As a general method of procedure, the following will be found satisfac tory:-Make a heap, in ...
CULTIVATION OF CARROTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 3 January 1914
CULTIVATION OF CARROTS. The carrot, which is not grown so extensively as it might be with advan tage, resembles in composition the turnip and mangold, but it is much more concentrated than the former, as it contains from 14 to 20 per-cent. of dry nutritive matter against about 10 in the turnip. It flourishes best in deep loamy soils, not too wet, or the carrots are liable to rot, and. not very dry, or the growth of the root is cramped. The soil must be deeply cultivated to per mit the long-penetrating root full power of development. The ground should be well manured. Half-rotted stable manure, applied in the autumn at the rate of twenty loads to the acre, is a good- prepara tion. The requirements of the carrot for a liberal supply, of plant food are so great that, in addition to the dung, it can utilise with advantage a-supple mentary dressing of readily soluble chemical fertilisers. - 'he application of 3cwt. superphosphate, 26 per cent. soluble, and !_cwt. of sulphate of pot ash, ...
TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 3 January 1914
TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. A woman of uncertain years, who looked much younger than she was, took the following rules as her guide in maintaining a youthful appear ance: Dress younger than you are. Never dress older. Never wear old ladies' clothes, no matter how old you get to be. Forget caps and wraps and shawls and easy chair gowns. Keep your figure young. You can not hope to look young if your figure is old. When you look in the looking-glals gaze at yourself from the back, not from the front. If you look old, that is the point of view from which to re alise the fact. Beware of what Kate Field called the middle-aged figure. It is round in the shoulders and hunched up in the belt line. There is a certain rolypoly look about the woman who is older than she ought to be. Take care of your hair. Straggly hair goes with old age. Old people forget to shampoo, and they give up waving their locks. Don't let your hands get bony. Bony fingers belong to the aged. Keep the knuckles plump by th...
MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 3 January 1914
- MORAL REFLECTIONS. A man's character is the sum of his intentions and his choices. A man of honor never purchases happiness at the expense of another's sorrow. Let us not seek for influence; let us simply seek to do our duty, and in. fluence will inevitably follow. The most insignificant people are the most apt to sneer at others. They are safe from reprisals, and have no hope of rising in their own esteem but by lowering their neighbors. Conceit loses a man more friends and gains him more enemies than any other foible, perhaps vice, in the world. It makes him harsh to his in feriors, and disrespectful to his bet. ters. What kills men is discouragement. It is sitting down under trouble that destroys them; it is standing up and mocking trouble that enables them to go through it without harm. Regrets are a waste of time in every possible instance, except one. That one is the instance in which the soul entertains them thoughtfully and humbly until they become valu able lessons for th...
The Warrnambool Standard, PUBLISHED DAILY, Price—One Penny. SATURDAY, 3rd JANUARY. THE NEW YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 3 January 1914
The Warrnambool Standard, PUBLISHED DAILY, Prics-One PennJ; SSATURDAY, .3rd JANUAIY. THE NEW YEAR. As each year glides by the thought ful 'mant or womnan :instinctively ro flets on the past twelve months; and equally instinctivel1 .. wonders -what will happen during the progress of thi coming year. This attitude of mind should be applied both to the indi vidual and to the nation.. It does no harm for the average man to period ically take stock of himself. He doubt less does this in a material sense, and might. possibly benefit if he were at the same time to subject himself to k moral and spiritual overhaul as well. However, it is not so much with the individual as with the body politic that we are concerned for the pur poses of this article. Australia, during the year that has gone, has passed through ai'expeorience of political and industrial, turmoil-of the striving of part3' against pairty -and of 'labor aigainst capital. And it cannot be said that at the present time a very rest...
