WHAT KIPLING HAS DONE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
WHAT KIPLING HAS DONE. Mr.- Kipling did this great thing, if eot for literature. at least for men md men, of letters. He expressed m ptions-in language which was as far as possible from the lsnguase of aestheti rsm. 'This. meant, perlzap. that he ,Quld not express very asuitle or nun inal emotions, that his perceptions' were broad rather than fine; but he at east taught the world that there were iertain profound manly feelings-which ight be expressed: without the .pre nary unmanning .of aesthetieusm; d his distinction lies in the fact that uttered them with vehemence and tensity.--R. A:.Scott-James, in the North American Review."

FLOWER CREATIUN: THE BOMANOE AND THE REAIITY. The story of the romantic "discovery" of the Shirley Poppy has already been told. In. tbe following article Mr. Wright (who is Horticultural Superin tendent under the Kent County Coun cii and Hon. bec. of the iorticultu ral Education Association) shows how new and wonderful blooms may be evol vea by the amateur gardener from or dinary flowers found in any subaruan gaSnD- - The recent presentation, after 23 a-v. sitrice as secretary to the Royal H,, tniultural Society, to the orsator of t!ir Suirley poppy, may have arous ed speculation as to whether there are other flowers as simple, cheap, and eas iiy grown as the annual poppy, of which new forms could be evolved by amateurs. It is well known that the Suirley poppy owes parentage to so common a plant as the scarlet field puppy, which is an annual; and it is an interesting to cnsider what other ever day floners there are which-lend them seires to improvement.

WOMAN—THE HOME-MAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
WOMdAN-THE HOME-MAKER. Why it is the heaven-born mission -of a woman to be a home-maker. From the time, as a wee, toddling girlie, we hug our dollies and play at housekcep ing with bits of broken china, and make our little mud-pies, etc., the home-making trait is strong within us. and if we succeed in' diverting a little girl's natural instinct, we will have but blotted out'the sweetest, most lovable and noblest characteristic God has given to her as a woman. Let us teach our little giilie that if she possesses the dignity of self-respect, all will respeot her. "Noble he, who noble does." Let us, as mothers, hold up the high ideals of thoroughness and neatness, system and order, in the way of curri culum of exalted home-making,-as our home is just what we make it, happy or unhappy. Let us also teach her there is art and science in cooking, dish washing, and scrubbing, and never let her hear mother' say "O, Jennie, I will wash the dishes, it will make your hands coarse and red. - You...
WHISKERS AND RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
WHISKERS AND RELIGION. - -iWhiskers and Religion lave ever been- associated. imagine a priest of any of t ea Greek churches -without his flowing beard. - Fancy, if you can, a picture of a British Druid unbearded. Look back only to the beg.nning of the primitive methodists, with. their sha ved top lip, bbut anl beard anAl whiskers, Look at our own day and the Jezreelite with' his "ipying toll" of back hair and finger combed chin growth. 'And look at the Piymouth lirethren-they have an unwritten .law which means an unrazored face. But you never get Beezlebub and beards never see a Mophistophles with more than a cocky moustache and perhaps a ohm fork-never an 'edition of Milton with illustrations of d tlowimg bearded Satan.
CLOVER FOR PLOUGHING IN.' [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
CLOVER FOR PLOUGHI?U G IN.' The plant used for ploughing in -is red or broad clover, and the seed should be carefully selected. Cow grass or perennial red clover produces little seed Trom its single crop, where as broad clover yields a.good crop of seed from the -second cutting after the first has been taken for fodder. The great root' growth made during the two years of its existence is the best possible preparation for any wheat crop to follow. . It contains so much moisture that only 'one-fifth of the weight of the green crop is found in the hay stack; therefore it decomposes rapidly in the ground. It is inoap able .of self-fertilisation, and no seed was grown here till the introduction of the humble-bee; which is almost exclu sively the medium by which. pollen is conveyed from: anther to stigma. It possesses an enormous leaf surface, and forms large, fleshy roots, which- pene trate deeply when the ground is free from stagnant- water. It does not at tain full development without ...

BUILDING UP A DAIRY HERD. What may be done- in the way of building up a superior milking herd is well illustrated in the case of the Sparrowvale Farm, the 'name given to the swamp land lying adjacent to the Barwoi River which has been reclaim-. ed by the Geslong Harbor Trust. We need not here dwell upon the reolacna tion work, the undertaking of which many were at the time inclined to condemn. Mr. Baird, the manager, by constant attention to detail, from lfeifers, the breeding and milking qua lities of which were. unknown, has by systematic culling and breeding built up as creditable a herd of rrossbreds as can be found :.:; w!

P3ISON IVY.

COOLING PREPARATIONS AND ICE BOXES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
COOLING PREPARATIONS AND ICE BOXES. It'very often happens that people in the country or elsewhere not in close proximity to an ice factory desire-some method of quickly idoling an article fox immediate requirembnts. In such an instanoe lb. -of sal ammoniac and lib. of washing soda, dissolved in water equal in quantity to the two, and placed in a-metal or earthenware yes sel, will reduce the temperature al mist to freezing point-. - This jar can then boe placed in another recep tacle, and any article desired to be cooled can be placed on top -or at thu side of the first jar. Another way to use this simple recipe is to have a flat tin, one or two inches in depth, cover ed with a tight-fitting lid, into which the preparation may be placed. Butter and such goods-can then be-stacked on top and kept firi. If the' sal ammno mac and soda areocoarsely pulverised and folded loosely inia cloth, when the cloth is dampened. the same effectxmay be secured. To chosa who can get ice, and who may wi...
PUGNACITY AND PATRIOTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
PUGNACITY AND- PATRIOT!ISM. To confuse pugnacity with patriot ism mere physical courage with love of one's country, is a common and'perhaps pardonable error, but it is none the less grievous and stupid. The senti ment glorified by the name of martial ardour- as experienced by the jingo in the music-hall and even by the soldier on the eve o- battle, is at times scarce ly distinguishable from that which in-. spires the game-cock on his dunghill or the terrier at' the street corner. Pro found thinkers areo" unable to deny -that on the battlefield it is vic tory ratuer than justice that is the stimulating motive, though there are of course, often intermingling elements of a nobler order. Is there not almost always--nay, always-a better and more patriCtic way, a way -of. wise negotiation, perhaps of reasonable concession which -would bring more honour and real glory to our country than any amount of pride, self-assertion and bloodlshed, and all the humiliation that attends either defeat ...
ONE COW TO THE ACRE. EXAMPLE OF INTENSIVE FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
ONE COW TO THE ACRE. EXAMPLE OF INTENSIVE FARM ING. In the course of an editorial dealing with intensive farming,. the Taranaki "Herald" draws a comparison between the methods of Danish aid Taran-ki farmers, and points out the wide mar gin between the values of produce gained per acro in -favour of Denmark, owing to the manner in which farming practice is conducted there. As an illustration of what may be accoin plished in New .Zealand under intense cultivation methods. *the " Herald " cites the experience of a small farmer who lives a few miles from New Ply mouth: "A few years ago he had about eighty acres of land, naturally, no more fertile than the land surrdunding him. Recognising the value of intensive far ming, he disposed of half his land. re taining less- than forty "acres, uipon which he now maintains a herd of 20 pure-bred" Jersey cows, besides pigs, a horse or two, and a few young stcck. From these cows he looks for a cash return this year of about £27 per head. or £510, ...
TO PREVENT SORE SHOULDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
TO PREVENT SOBRE SHOULDERS.. A correspondent of the "Breeders' Gazette" gives the following method for preventing sore shoulders on hor ses.:--"We have tried for. abut ten years, and found it valuable when used all the time. Line the. sweat pad or collar that comes next to the horses' shoulders with. pure white oil cloth, which can be bought for 10d per yard. The oilcloth must be pure white with out a coloured mark in it. Put the smooth part of it next the shoulder, lining the pad of collar all. through, and" sewing it' in around- the. edges.. With collars lined this way, we have never-had :a horse with sore shoulders.: Once or tpvice I" negleofed to do-it, and at onice the shoulders became sore. The collars .an be washed off and kept clean. The .method 'is a success, and is very simple and 'easy to apply: With our four teams :of work 'horses not one has sore shoulders. Thisidea has been a great thing-to me, and I" want to pass it on."
CARE OF HORSES' SHOULDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 2 January 1914
CARE OF HORSES' SHOULDERS. Horses' shoulders need attention during hot weather. Having had quite a little experiencoe myself with sore shoulders, I thought, maybe it would be of some benefit to readers to tell what I always found to do them. the most. good. .When the hardest work is finoshed I always wash their shoulders with salt and water, and the top of the neck"wherii the collar goes also. Wash them. every night arter the day's work 'is done; do not wait till the 'horse galls. Cormmence early and maybe you -can prevent your hor ses from having sore shoulders.. .Do not. be.iifraid of. the water,.as a good clean pail of.water witu a handful of salt in it is as refreshing to a horse's shoulders as water is -.to a person's body If farmers would. pay more attention to the fitting of collars, to their hor ses' shoulders, and rub them when they-are to work, and keep their mane out from under the collar, I think they would be: less liable to get sore. There is many a horse to-day that h...
