HORSE BREEDING ON THE SMALL FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 May 1915
HORSE BREEDING ON THE SMALL FARM. 'There are thousands of compara tively small farmers who could go into the business of horse-breeding on a small scale with profit to them selves if they would only start in on the right plan and pursue the work with the same judgment and business foresight which is given to it by the larger breeders who have made a success in breeding market horses. However, many of this class of far mers who have tried the business have found that it did not pay them —simply because they have produced a poor class of horses for which there is no demand, and for which they could not find sale at remunerative prices.
Cycling and Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 May 1915
a- — "Few motorists realise the different physical properties of the two popular types of motor car wheels—wooden and wired. A wooden wheel is built entirely in compression, due to the fact that it is assembled as a unit and drawa into shape and held there by the application of a steel band shrunk into position to hold the wheel together. Any load placed on a wooden wheel is carried by the spokes below the centre of the wheel to the hub and in a direct line from the point of contaot with the road to the centre of the wheel. A wire i wheel is built with the- spokes in ten sion,, and the rim in compression, the whole being held together as a unit by the tension of the spokes. Any load carried on a wire wheel is carried by spokes above the centre of the wheel, which adds to the initial tension dne to tightening up the spokes. Consider a wooden wheel in service fitted complete with tyre. Every time the wheel drops into a rut or strikes an obstacle on the road the shock is transmitted di...

War Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 May 1915
There are well-supported rumours iu London that the Asquith Cabinet is in process of reconstruction. Lord Fisher is said to have resigned ns First Sea Lord of the Admirality. The landing of the Australians and New Zealanders on the Gallipoli Penin sula is described by Lord Kitchener as a masterpeice and organisation, ingenuity, and courage, which will be long remem bered. Mr Ashmead-Bartlett, the British war correspondent, says that the way the Australians Fought oh May 8th, in attempting to take the heights oE Krithia, will never be forgotten by those who witnessed it. They advauced 3teadily, as if on parade, sometimes doubling, sometimes walking. They melted away under the terrible fusillade, but their reserves filled the gaps till the point was reached beyond which it was impossible to advance. They then en trenched, replying to the enemy's fire. The Australian submarine AE2 has been sunk by the Turks. Her crew was captured, but 12 meu are missing. Lord Kitchener has appealed for...

Purchase of Road Plant. DISCUSSED BY RIPON COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 May 1915
DISCUSSED BY RIPON" COUNCIL. The Ripon Shire Council west into committee on Monday to consider tenders for additions to the road-making plant. Or Sinclair was informed that a loan of £2000 could be obtained from the Pub lic Works Department for the purchase oP the plant at .6 per cent, interest, and. allowing for repayment in 80 years, j The Engineer in a report on the pro posed additions to the plant, stated :— Bins affd screens, with elevator, estima ted cost, £250.—It is essential that these be obtained, as in no other way. can the metal be. graded. In addition, they will probably . pay ou account of saving in time." The only question about these .is-the capacity. It seems to me that, as they are. bound to be used with Waggons, "they should- be large enough to: provide a load for - traction engine, otherwise time will be lost by the engine ; or two sets of waggons will have to be obtained. -Smaller bins can be obtained for less than estimate; Rollirf£ is going to cost, roughly, £...
JACK ARMIGER'S TEMPTATION. I. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 May 1915
JACK ARM IGER'S TEMPTATION. i. I. "It's monstrous! You can't pos sibly mean it!" The younger man started back in "dismay, a look of horror overspreading his features as he listened to the suggestion which came from the keen faced, grey-bearded man at the. oppo site side of the desk. "But I do mean it, Armiger," re turned Silas Marsland, grimly, in sharp, incisive tones, nis fingers at the same time beating a tattoo on' the desk before him; "and, what is more, 1 want you to do it—here and now." "And do you mean to tell me that that is the real reason of your send ing for me to-day—to request me to do what you have just suggested?" There was a note in the voice of the questioner that caused Silas Mars land to look at him sharply. Somehow it reminded one of a calm before the storm. "Yes, that and nothing more," re plied Marsland. "I want you, as en gineer-in-charge of the Spardale Mine, to write me out a certificate, and sign it, that the mine is in first-class order, machinery and wor...
Smythesdale News. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 May 1915
The annual meeting of the Rifle Club took place on Friday evening, President W. Williamson in the chair. An apology was received from Mr T. Dick son (captain). The report, as submitted, stated that the year had been a quiet one, as regards matches and competi tions, owing partly to the low state of tne funds at the beginning of the year, and later to the action of the Defence Department in curtailing Fnion and interelub matches. Some of the diffi culties have now been overcome, and it is expected that matches will be ar ranged during the coming year. In other respects the progress of the clab j has been satisfactory, having gained 8 new members. Twenty-five members completed their musketry course, 18 shooting in Table A, and 7 in Table B. In Table A 6 qualified as 1st class shots, and 12 for 2nd class shots. In Table B 5 qualified as marksmen, one as a 1st class shot, and one as a 8rd class shot. Mr R. Boyd secured the highest musketry score, with a total of: 171. points; Three of t...
II [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 May 1915
II. As Jack Armiger went down the stairs he brushed against a middle a.ged gentleman on the way up. While he apologised for his clumsi ness their eyes met. Something in the fac?.—and it was an extremely benevolent looking face —seemed to stir the chords of mem ory, and he could not refrain from pausing and glancing back. As he did so he observed that the gentleman made straight for Silas Marsland's office. Who was he? The features remind ed him of someone. Where had he seen that face before? Was the benevolent looking gentle man the mine-owner's client—the pos sible purchaser of the Spardale Mine —the man for wrhom he had written that false declaration? Immediately his conscience smote him. If the gentleman agreed to purchase, he, Armiger, had done him a great in justice. The thought troubled him, for there was something about the man's face that appealed to him strangely. Jack Armiger was at liberty for the afternoon, for he had been told dis tinctly he need not show up again that ...
Breach of Contract. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 May 1915
Tbe attention of the Minister of Agriculture was directed on Wednesday to the fact that a farmer in Skipfcon dis trict had been successfully sued by a flour miliar for the recovery of damages because the former had failed to deliver ■wheat sold for forward delivery. Ac cording to the evidence the farmer in August last sold 500 bags of his pro spective crop to the miller, for January February delivery, at 4s a bushel. The orop failed, and the farmer was unable to supply. The miller thereupon sued in the County Court for £300, calculated on the difference between the market piice and the market price on March 1st. He was awarded £280. The Minister stated that he had not read the report of the case, and knew nothing of the facts. Apparently, however, it was an impressive lesson of the unwisdom of the habit of farmers in making forward contracts for the sale of the wheat. So severe has been the lesson of last season, he added, that he had expected farmers to keep free from forward selli...

III. "But you don't mean to say the mine is absolutely of no value" quer ied Mr. Ambrose. "Not •worthless," replied Armiger, "but badly in need of repair. It's been going to rack and ruin for years, and the, plant is entirely out of date. The little party were examining the workings. Armiger had soon overtaken Wil liams and the mine-owner's client, and had rapidly explained the true state of affairs. "But the certificate said " i "The certificate!" echoed Armiger. | "I gave that—it was forced from me. It was all a lie, and not worth the pap er it was written on. I got it back, and have it here. Watch!" As he finished speaking he tore the paper to shreds and ground the pieces underfoot. "Ah!" There was a world of mean ing in the exclamation which came from Mr. Ambrose. "Well," he remarked, after a pause, "I was born not far from here, and I've a fancy to purchase this mine. I don't think it can be so bad as " "But I know!" burst out the young engineer, fiercely. "Buy this mine, and y...
A SOLDIER'S SURPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 May 1915
A SOLDIER'S SURPRISE. In the early part of the campaign (says .a sergeant) I was engaged in a disastrous exploit which eventuated in an unexpectedly pleasant manner. I, with six privates of my regiment, had got cut off from the battalion dur ing the fighting near Mons. Espying a group of Germans on an adjoining eminence, we made off to dislodge them, and a sanguinary encounter en sued. We killed and wounded about thirteen of the enemy, and then, aid ed by some Uhlans who had gallop ed to their assistance, they compel led us to retreat. Every one of our little party was wounded, and it was fortunate for us that just before nightfall we fell in with our regiment again. Immediately afterwards I was com manded tp appear before the colonel, and, trembling in my boots, I hast ened to receive the punishment I ex pected. To my surprise he "express ed gratification at what we had done "on our own," and explained that our little "scrap" had diverted many of the enemy, who had got him and the ...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. ■c£» ■ ■* ■ - i The break-up of the drought has been ' the theme of general congratulation dur ing the past week. Beginning on the 14th inst. with light showers, the rain fall increased during the next few days, and though there were signs of clearing on Monday night and again on Tuesday, heavy showers still fell.

Registered at the General Post Office, Melbourne, for ' ' transmission as a newspaper. SATURDAY, MAY 22, 1915. A letter from a German resident of Hamilton, published in the ''Courier" the other day, comes as a refreshing change after the many time-serving pro testations pf loyalty wo have been sur feited with lately. Not that many will feel inclined to swallow all that this new and candid Teuton tells us. His letter is a protest against the action of hia compatriots in declaring a loyalty to Britain which they cannot possibly feel. They are actuated, he says, by business motives, and he is heartily ashamed of them, and is sure that the British must regard them with contempt. " If Ger many won this war, and Australia was nnder German rule," he says, " not one of these naturalised Germans would th...
