SUNDIALS. THEIR ANTIQUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
SUNDIAL THEIR ANTIQUI' .. The antiquity of the sbldial I'itao the least of its charms. Primitive man obtained some idea of the time by placing a stick in the ground and noting how the shadow fell. Tihe an, cient Greeks had their sundials, and among the Elgin Marbles i. thq British Museum is to be found; four-faced dial unearthed at Athens. The Romans adopted sundials from the Greeks, and Cicero has plced o! record the fact that he possessed one at his villa. The general adoiption of sundials throughout thfi civilis world was due to clerical inifeuice 1 for the early Popes ordered that sun. &lials should be placed on various churches, in order that the people could ascertahi the hour of the day. TiThe use of, sundials. in England ma% be said to date from the introdue tion of Christianity. The Venerable Bede specially intereste himself in the Imatter, and every monastery ) its sundial.

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
RAILWAY AND TRAMWAY MEN SHOULD USE MR. CHARLES ROCK. of 42 Gladen Street, East Brunswick, 33 years in the Melbourne Tramway and O.B. Company, writes, on 2/4/12 : CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. "In December, 1911, I was laid up with pleurisy, so serious the doctor consulted another. For three days MY TEMPERA TURE WAS 104 DEGREES. MY LIFE WAS DESPAIRED OF, but through taking the doctor's advice I live to-day. He advised my wife to get CLEMENTS TONIC for me, as 'there was life in that medi cine.' When he said, 'life in Clements Tonic,' they were the TRUEST WORDS HE EVER UTTERED. I would have been in my last resting place only for that grand medicine. Had my wife paid £40 for the bottle she would have had good value. I have seen a lot of testimonials about CLEMENTS TONIC in books and papers, but what I find fault with is that every writer has utterly failed to give a proper value of that medicine. (signedJ CHARLES ROCK." This is a refcvarkable letter, but then, CLEMENTS TONIC is a remarkable medic...
VALUE OF RYE CORN. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
VALUE OF RYE CORN. The value of rye is most apparent after root crops have been a partial failure, and in such seasons a large area of it is sown. It relieves the strain of providing keep', and forms a connecting link be tween winter- and spring feed. It is very wholesome and. not relaxing to the bowels like rape greens. It en courages milk in ewes and makes a pleasant change for. lambs, especially if they are allowed to run forward through creeps. It is also an excel lent preparation for roots, and is grown as a catch crop between them and the previous corn crop. After it shoots into ear it ceases to be of value as sheep keep, but may be cut** and carried to horses. It may even be left for seeding as a corn crop. Rye straw comes in very useful for thatching, and many farmers make a practice of sowing a. small area every year in rye for the sake of the straw.

THE DAIRY. HEAVY ROOT FEEDING. EFFECT ON THE MILK YIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
THE DAIRY. HEAVY ROOT FEEDING. EFFECT ON THE MILK YIELD. An experiment was recently tried by Messrs. Lauder and Fagan at Edinburgh on the effects of feeding an extra quantity of roots to milk cows with regard to the results on the milk yield. The. quantity and quality of the milk were noted, and incidently a test was made how far turnips would replace the expensive food commonly used for feeding. The turnip ration was as follows per head daily :-Bean meal, 21b ; bran, 21b. ; turnips, 112Tb. ; hay, 15hb. ; having an albuminoid ratio of 1 to 14. The concentrated ration was : Bean meal, 21b. ; bran, 2!b. ; peas meal, 41b. ; dried brewers' grains, 21b. .; turnips, 401b. ; hay, 15Th. ; hav ing a ratio of 1 to 7.6. Among the conclusions arrived at is that the richest milk was not obtained from the ration with the largest amount of digestible fat ; that, indeed, more fat was found in the milk than was fed in, the rations, and that, therefore the digestible carbohydrates of the food must ha...
THE FARM. CLOVER SICKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
THE FARM. CLOVEPR SICKNESS. The old idea .that clover sickness is due to the exhaustion of some soil constituent essential for the growth. of clover is now disproved (writes a contributor to the "British Journal of Agriculture"), and it has been de finitely shown that the disease id of parasitic origin. Unfortunately, two distinct. parasites are equally capable of prbmoting the disease--the one be ing "eel-worm," Tslenchus devasta trix, and the other a fungus called Sclerotinia trifoliorum. Eelworm Disease. -- The earliest symptoms of the presence of the eel worm disease is a yellowing and wil ting of the leaves of small patches of clover. The patches gradually in crease in size as the disease spreads, and may be easily noticed from a distance. Eventually the leaves droop and die, leaving bare. and scorched looking patches in the crop. The above symptoms also exactly des cribe thn general appearance caused by the fungus-Sclerotinia trifolio rum-but the true cause of the dis ease can...
SILVER BEET AS A FORAGE PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
SILVER BEET AS A FORAGE PLANT. The results obtained from one acre of silver beet at Belfast, near Christ church on the experimental plots un der the control of Mr. Macpherson, are distinctly encouraging. A crop was sown on November 16th, and the first feeding off was made on March 19th, when 243 sheep were put on for 14 days, consuming in that time 51 tons. Other mobs were put on, each for 14 days, and they consumed the following quantities :-249 lambs, 18 tons; 171 sheep, 30 tons; 100 sheep, 27 tons ; 100 sheep, 26 fons ; 151 sheep, 35 tons. A total of 1,014 sheep and lambs thus consumed 217 tons in 84 days off one acre, thus.de monstrating the wonderful growth that is made by the silver beet and its value as a green crop for sheep.

PUBLICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
PUBLICATIONS. Should Wives Obey Their Husbands ? This is a question that one would ima gine offered but two unqualified answers', and yet in the May number of 'Every lady's Journal,' just out, we find up wards of a dozen prominent people ex pressing various opinions on the subject. They are people of widely different station and profession. Men as far apart as Mr Bernard O'Dowd, the well-known Aus tralian poet, and Mr Paris Nesbit, K.C.; men so closely associated-by their laughter-as Harry Lauder and Sir Alex ander Peacock; and stage favorites like Miss Ada Reeve and Miss Daisy Jerome, all differ more or less on this important topic. Even champions of Women's Rights like Miss v'ida Goldstein and Miss Adela Pankhurst are not quite at one about it. Harry Lauder- the famous Scotch comedian, who is at present visit ing Australia-looked very serious as he said, 'But women won't obey if they don't want to ! No, not even if they have promised in twenty marriage services.' 'Anyway,' he adde...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 23 May 1914
An explanatory paragraph con cerning the elastic surmise of the Advertiser correspondent relative to the council's liabilities in advocacy of electricity for the borough has been published. The contributor attempts to verify his assertion of an expenditure of £250 on electric light by sundry expenses. There .is no official return prepared as a cost against electricity, but it is safe to-assert if the council deem it should be done, the statement .will be found to be fully ,100 overstated-but that, of course, is a mere trifle. The statement will, however, have no depreciatory ef fect on the intention of councillors instal electricity, neither will rate payers be prejudiced against it. A large number of piles and a quantity of sawn timber has recently been received at the local railway station for work in connection with the extension and improvements of the Fishermen's Pier, and the con tractor, Mr S. Patience, who has had his plant erected for sonie time, has now a number of men emp...

A , LOVELY GORGEC There was a soft tenderness in thc sweet evening breeze, and the passen gers on the luxurious pleasure steam ers, having just finished a really good dinner, were enjoying the beau ties of the evening to the full.
