STRAIN IS GREATER THAN BREED. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 March 1912

STRAIN IS GREATER THAN ) BREED. The first and greatest mistake . of the average beginner is in buying cheap birds from a strain he knows little about. It is not so much the breed, but.it is the strain that counts. Almost any breed can be . bred in such a way that they will pay a satisfactory profit — afid they can he bred just the opposite. A man' who cannot afford to get the right birds should start with a good setting of eggs. ^ j

WHERE THE PROFIT IS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 March 1912

WHERE THE PROFIT IS. The manner in which a cow fs milked counts for a good deal. A slow and careless milker, or one who treats the cow harshly, helps to dry up the best of cows. The animal should be approached gently, never struck or abused, and the operation of milking should be begun gradually, steadily increasing in rapidity until all is drawn; and be sure all is drawn, for the profit on the cow is all in the last pint.

The Battle of the Future. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 22 March 1912

The Battle of the Future. ? 'On yonder hill,' cried the general, scanning the battlefield with his glasses, 'I see a black mass of men- What are they?' 'Camera fiends,' replied the second in command. 'And who are occupying that field to the south-west?' 'Those,' answered the S.I.C., 'are operators for the biograph.' 'I see a battalion of curious-shaped guns.' 'They are not guns; they are gram ophones and phonographs, in which are to he recorded the roar of the cannons and the cries of the wound ed.' ''Tis Avell!' exclaimed the general, stroking his moustache complacently; 'let the 'battle begin !' Sometimes our talk does not im- press people as we intend. What we do is the background against which our words stand out; and, when the contrast is great, people can scarcely be expected to take heed of our high assertions or our good advice. ? CheerfulnesB is a duty we owe to others. ._ ^ __

PRACTISE ROTATION OF CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 22 March 1912

PRACTISE ROTATION OF CROPS. That a proper rotation of crops is essential to success in farming is evi denced everywhere, for there is no land that is proof against depletion. Some soils hold out longer than others but the ultimate end is failure, if we nersist. in continual o.roDDing with one crop. We rotate primarily to prevent this depletion of soil fertility, and if legumes figure largely in the rotation, considerable nitrogen, the principal and costliest plant food, is added. Then we rotate to secure a better distribu tion of labor, and dairymen rotate to secure a variety of feeds with the least damage to the soil. Another ad vantage of rotation is the getting rid ! of insect and weed pests. Different crops feed differently, and by rotating them any one particular plant food is not exhausted, as may be the case in single crop farming. Some crops require more nitrogen than others, some more potash, anfi some more phosphates.

WHAT TO DO. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 22 March 1912

WHAT TO DO. J It is vain to weep like thunder over some bad break or blunder, for ' the past, my friend, is written, and we cannot change the tale, and I al ways have the willies when I see some silly billys putting up their lamentations at the place where peo ple wail. It is morbid, it is ghoulish, to be brooding oer tne rooiisn, idiotic stunts you've pulled off in the days that are no more; better look ahead and ponder on the bright days over yonder where the country of the future waits with sirens on its shore. Many wayward paths I've journeyed with the ogres and the monsters, I have wasted golden years; but you never see me sitting all forgetful of my knitting, resurrecting ancient blunders and bedewing them with tears. . Foolish are the tears that blind us for the time that lies he hind us, wasted are the sighs we're heaving for the phantoms of dead days; for the sun is shining o'er us and the time that lies before us is the time we ought to think of — so get busy, fifty ways! ...

A Change of Raiment THE STORY OF A MADCAP MISS— AND A CONVICT. CHAPTER I. A Train Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 22 March 1912

A Change of Raiment the'story of a madcap miss— AND A CONVICT. CHAPTER I. A Train Adventure. , It was ten days before Christmas, but as yet no sign of Yule-tide wea ther had appeared. The day was calm and _ genial, the sky blue and flecked with small fleecy clouds. Nevertheless, the weatherwise were foretelling the advent of snow, and most of the travellers by the western express had provided themselves with wraps ana rugs, wmcn the warmth of ? the atmosphere rendered superfluous at the beginning of the journey. As the day wore on and the train, reaching the west of England, began to climb upwards to the moorland, a change came. On the higher ground snow was falling. A cold wind blew, and the coats and plaids justified their ? presence. One traveller only, a girl sitting alone in a first-class compartment of the corridor train, observed no change of temperature. She was too much .absorbed in her Mudie volume to care what happened. outside its covers. She was a very pretty girl. The ...

Regret was expressed hereon Mon day, when news of the death of Mr N. M'Lean, junr., 4bh son of the late Hon. A. M'Lean, was received. He was found dead in a shed at his resi danoe.

TRAINING YOUNG AUSTRALIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 22 March 1912

TRAINING YOUNG AUSTRALIANS. ? ^ ? ; Every effort is being made by the Commonwealth military authorities to popularise compulsory training. Australia has never suffered tbe hor rors of war. and there iB, in conse quence, no sense of fear, no traditions to create in the minds of young Aus tralians a sensa of d uty in regard to military training. In Switzerland the grandmothers of the nation pour into the young stories of the wars of liberty, tales of William Tell and other Swiss heroes. The mothers of Japan inspire its youth with accounts of the heroic deeds of their fathers in the Chinese and Russian wars, The boys of Swit zerland, the boys of Nippon, grow up thirsty for martial glory. The Fa therland and its traditions provide all the spirit that is needed. Iu Australia the mothers and grandmothers have no3uch stories to tell. There is no warlike sentiments. Oar military traditions are few and unimportant. Britain and its heroes are a long way off. The Australian boy is not interest...
