FAULT-FINDING RARELY DOES GOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 January 1914

FAULT-FINDING RARELY DOES GOOD. When will women, especially many excellent women, realise that fault finding rarely does good? Too much criticism always is harmful; indeed., a little of it is often more than enough. A wife's influence and her care are most effective when exercised in the constant and conscientious perform ance of her own duty without refer once to what her husband may or may not do, and in the embodiment in her self of loving, pure, and truthful wo manhood.

CONDITION OF SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 January 1914

'r ^^CONblflON' OF SOIL. If the land is wet and cold when seed is sown, even, though the germi nation is good, the young planes re ceive such a severe check that they never wholly recover. The land in tended for spring and summer crops should he carefully prepared some time 'before the period for sowing. Then just previous to seeding, the surface should be cultivated, so as to give a fulness to the surxace soil and still have the ground firm under neath. The principal advantage of this method is that the moisture col lected from rains is retained in the lower layers of the furrow, and is there for the use of the crop. Where as, if ploughed up or deeply cultiva ted in the spring, there is anvays the risk that the drying winds of the spring will rob the soil of too much moisture, leaving insufficient for the, use of the crop. in districts with a heavy rainfall that is evenly distributed over the whole of the season this precaution is not so important, but in other dis tricts not so fo...

THINGS REVERSED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 January 1914

THINGS REVERSED. Either the Japanese people do every thing backwards, left-handed, and up side down, or we do. In Japan yon see a man planing; he pulls the plans towards him. You notice a black smith at work; he pulls the bellows with his feet, while he is holding and hammering with both hands. He has several irons in the fire, and keeps his >1 inner-pot boiling with the waste flame. The cooper holds the tub with I his toes. All of them sit down when I they worii. How strange! This is I :in important difference between a European and an Asiatic. Why is it that we do things contrariwise to the Japanese? They call our penmanship "crab-writing," because, they say, it is ?oing backwards! In a Japanese stable we find the horse's flank where we look for his head. Japanese screws screw the other way. Their locks thrust to the left; ours to the right.

SCIENTIFIC FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 January 1914

SCIENTIFIC FARMING. Fanning is no longer without at- I traction tor the enterprising young ' man. It is calling co its service the I engineer and tue scientist. A farm conducted on modern lines can em- , brace as many of the newest mechani- . cal developments at any other form of industry. Many farmers have now their own little laboratory, for exam- | ination of the soil, and suitable fertilisers, an electric plant for light ing the house and supplying power to the workshops, petrol-driven milking machines, ploughs and cultivators,ana portable engines of the internal com- ) Dustion type, for thrashing and barn > work. Science having got this grip ' on agriculture, farm' life cannot fail I to reclaim many who abandoned it j originally on the plea of monotony. "I understand lie swears a great | deal." "I -wouldn't say that exactly. But I would say that in the heat of passion. ] ho finds it impoBBibl* to confine him self to 'Tutl tutl'"

Read each word : CLEMENTS TONIC LTD., " I am writing of the great good Clements Tonic did my daughter. Early in January last year, she was operated upon in hospital for appendicitis. She was eight weeks there, and came home very weak and run down. I purchased several bottles of Clements Tonic to give her a course. IT soon strengthened her nerves, and she was as well as I could wish her before long. It is fourteen years ago that I first used Clements Tonic, and in my profession as a nurse I have recommended that medicine times out of number.

GENERAL NEWS. NATURE'S EMIGRANTS. Some Curious Habits Indulged in by Nature. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 January 1914

GENERAL NEWS. NATURE'S EMIGRANTS. Some Curious Habits Indulged in by Nature. Emigration is a habit indulged in 5y every conceivable form of life, and .s not, as might be supposed, confined :o mankind and a few species of birds. Wherever we turn in nature we find vie command to "move on" perpetu ally being obeyed. For instance, certain butterflies in Europe emigrate almost annually. Fa i miliar garden species, such as the red admiral, painted lady, or peacock, often fly all the way from the South of France. In America there is a huge tawny and black and white butterfly that takes vast flights across the Pacific, covering sometimes as much as 2000 miles in its endeavor to colonise in new lands. This is a prodigious dis tance for so frail a creature to go, and it is not to be wondered at that sail ors have sometimes seen them falling in scores into the sea from sheer ex haustion. Cattle, and some carniverous beasts, such as the tiger and lion, emigrate very little, but have been known ...

TOD SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the salce of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EX TRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S. EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefitthat thousands Lave derived from it before.

MELBOURNE PIG MARKET. Messrs McPbail Bros. & Co. report under dates of 21st aDd 22nd inst :— stores.—lhe demand was confined to local farmers and breeders (no country buyers operating, as last week, on a big scale), with the result that prices eased, strong, middling and inferior-conditioned stores making 23s to 28s ; very few 6uckers and slips were penned.

He can dispense with such materials as he has proved to be not necessary on his soil. On the other hand, he can add an extra quantity of any insra dient with his experiments show to be especially necessary. j It is not what people Bay of ua, but what they don't say, whioh reveals our true characters.

He says what seeds are down below, All will sprout and start to grow; Then when the frosty days come on , They'll all be nipped and dead and j gone. 1 don't take stock of things like that, I'd rather fan me with my hat; I'll never be so big a fool To try to plough till days get cool. Perhaps the weeds will go to seed, But I could never see the need Of keeping fields so nice and clean • That not a thiBtle could to seen. If all the weeds were frozen now, There wouldn't be so use to plough.
