The ball held by the Pt Lons dale Progress Association on the 6th inst in celebration of the fourth annual meeting was fairly well attended, about 60 being present.

THE DAIRY. ABOUT BUYING COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 16 May 1914
THE DAIRY. ABOUT BUYING COWS. A representative letter from an English dairy farmer in the "British Agricultural Press" says : - "Cow buying is a very uncertain business. There is much faking in the cow mar ket, but home-bred heifers are at least honest. Horns may be 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 the first two or three months, and then quickly dry off, and these are just the animals which will be 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 cattle by the system of dealing too exclusively with cows. The indiscriminate sale and- slaughter of calv...

THE FARM. WHAT IS THE MATTER? [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 16 May 1914
THE FARM. WHAT IS THE MATTER? Talkuing with a farmer not long since about the present demands up-; on the man who tills the soil, he said : "Sometimes I get almost discour aged. It seems as though the col leges and you editors were crowding the farmers along faster than we know what to do. It didn't used to be so. The demands for this and that change are coming thicker and faster.t' We do not wonder that some farm ers feel like this. The minds of men are getting greatly stirred as to the necessity for more and better know ledge, for better methods concerning the handling of our farms. The very conservative farmer, like our friend above quoted, does not feel just clear that these things are just right so'they feel uncertain. Like honest men, they want to do what is "for the best. They do not feel like ad mitting that they have been wrong in their understanding of their soil. They will confess that it does not act as it used to twenty-five or thirty years ago. Like most men, they incl...
ON FEEDING OATS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 16 May 1914
ON FEEDING OATS. All horses when fed on whole oats will swallow some whole oats with out chewing them, and the stomach cannot accomplish what the teeth fail to do. This applies to young as well as old horses. A general average by chemical an alysis in a stable of 100 horses, old and young, shows 21 per cent. wast-l ed. Meal after meal is so overtaxed with indigestible oats, which weaken ind inflame the digestive organs so they cannot perform their functions and extract all the nutriment even from the masticateh oats. When you feed your horse whole oats and you see whole oats in the manure, you don't know how much nutriment the animal gets, because you see waste with your naked eye. But when you feed your horse crushed oats you know exactly how much nutriment it will get, for all the nutritious parts of the oats will digest. The saliva, when the oat is opened (crushed), will mix with the diges tible part of the oat, whether the teeth further masticate it or not. The saliva is what do...
SOME PLEASANT TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
SOME PLEASAiNT TATTLE. "Some men," says a writer in a home journal, in disclosing 'tricks' of the l furnishing trade, 'can take new furniture and make it look as if it was made a century ago.' But there is nothing remarkable in this. An intelligent child . can do the same. "I believe," says Mr. William Poel, "that in 300 years Mr. Bernard Shaw's writings will still interest people." Mr. Shaw himself, however regards Mr. Poel's. estimate as an absurdly moderate one. "All a woman asks is to be loved," says a poet. Then all those tales about her wanting new frocks, motor cars, and unlimited jewellery \are a vile slander. "Take away woman," says an ar dent "votes-for-women" supporter iq mne of the dailies, "and what would follow ?" Why, man, of course. An Irish M.P. is well remembered for his first and only oratorical ef fort in the House. On rising, he de clared with due solemnity. "Mr. Speaker,' I cannot sit still here and keep silent without rising and saying a few words." '"I know n...

SMILES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
SMILES. "Well, little chap," said the stranger in the family, picking up one of the children, " what are you going to do j when you're a man ?" " Nuffin," said the child. " Nothing? Why so ?" asked the stranger. "'Cause," said the child, "I'm only a little girl." o "I wish I could always hold these little hands in mine," said he, with all a lover's enthusiastic tenderness. "1 don't, John," said she, practically, " for, if you did, how could you ever put your hands underneath my chin and lift up my face gently to be kissed ?" -o Boy: "Please, sir, may I have the afternoon off? My grandmother is to be buried." Employer: "This is the eighth grand mother you have buried since the football season opened." Boy : " know it, sir.

Mother : "Why, you extravagant boy I What did you do with the one I just gave you ?" Johnny ; " I g...

FOOTBALL. ENGINEERS (11-21) BEAT ARTILLERY (7-11). MAGPIES FLY TO VICTORY. PATCHY GAME ENDS IN A SPLENDID FINISH. ARTILLERY LACKS SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
ENGINEERS (11-21) BEAT . ARTILLERY (7-11). MAGPIES FLY TO VICTORY. PATCHY GAME ENDS IN A SPLENDID FINISH. ARTILLERY LACKS SYSTEM. The above match took place on the local ground on Saturday last. The game finished in semi-dark iness owing to a late start being made on account of the umpire not being up to time. The game on a whole was not brilliant, at times the play was patchy and many scrimmages were allowed to take place. It was evident the Artillery. did not realise until it was too late that their opponents had established a winning lead. From the start of: the gamne the Engineers led and finished with close on six goals to the gocd, The best play was to be seen in the last quarter-which is generally the case. The Artillery made a bold effort but it proved to be fruitless. The Engineers could not go wrong, such players as Mat heson, Mortimer, Groves, Gilbert and many others amply justi fying the [confidence which the supporters repose in them, es pecially at the finish, when the...
VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
VARIETIES, The Greeks had oats s.c. 200, but used them only as food for their horses. Canada is an Indian word, meaning "collection of hut.." The cockroach is very fond of the blacking on boots, and devours it with infinite gusto. The inhabitants of the United States consume more than half the quinine pro duced in the world. Wasps are the most inveterate enemies of flies. Reaumur says he has known one wasp to kill nearly a thousand flies a day. When a dentist in China is pulling a tooth for a patron, an assistant hammers on a gong, to drown the cries of the victim. The bug is not the bloodthirsty glutton some people imagine. On the contrary its sobriety is remarkable, and it has been known to live for a year or more without food. The cheese mite is more tenacious in life than any other insect. Lonwenhoech glued-one to a pin in order to make a microscopical examination, and in this situation it lived eleven weeks. An easy way to take a pill is to place it under the tongue and take a ...

YOU'LL REMEMBER THIS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
IOU'L1 REMEMBER THIS. Jaggers and Snison were walking home together when Snipson said :- '"Wait a tick. I've forgotten some4. thing my wife told me to get." "?What is it ?" inquired Jaggersr *"I've forgotten what it is I've for gotten."' "My dear "ch]ap, you can't forget what you've forgotten, if you remem ber you've forgotten what you can't remember." `'I know; but what can I tell the wife.

Sunday Corner. How To Know Christ. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
,Sunday Corner,,. How To Know Christ. To some Christ is a creed and a pattern of life, but not a personal friend. There are many who know. well the 'historic Christ' but to whom He is only a person who lived nearly two thousand years ago. They read His biography. as they read .that of St. Paul or St. John, admiring and wondering, and oft times saying, in the lines of the children's hymn. 'I wish that His hands had been placed on my head That His arms had been thrown around me, And that I might have seen His kind look when He said, Let the little ones 'come unto Me.' "

INTERESTING APPLE EXPERI MENT. THE USE OF LIGATURES. SA most interesting experiment it reported from Tasmania in regard to apple-growing. Some trees of the A1 friston variety appeared to he bent on producing. wood instead of fruit. Ligatures were applied to the trunks of fij trees on January 14. -The ef fect was remarkable. The apples on the trees began to change colour at once, until by the end of February they were nearly all yellow, and in splendid condition for export. The ligatures consisted of stout wires, tightly hound round. As soon as the fruit was gathered this was removed, and then the trees made nearly a foot of wood before the leaves fell in the autumn. Another change no tieable was that the fruitkng bran ches made better- developmeat. Bunions.-Paint them every second> day with iodine till the soreness dis appears. .... 1922.

An Ariel Visitior. FIRST IN QUEENSCLIFF'$ HISTORY. The residents of Queenscliff. and district were given an admirable view on Monday afternoon about 3.30 of one of the Commonwealth army aeroplaines in which were seated Major E. H. Reynolds and Lieut. Harrison. This visit had been expected during the previous week but the weather apparently prevented the avaitors from coming. The buzz of the machine flying about 300 feet in the air soon at tracted a lrrge number of people.
