FEEDING FOR EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 March 1914

FEEDING FOR EGGS. There are many who do not give their birds soft food in the morning as they consider it costs more than hard corn, and so indu es loss,, but this idea is a -mistaken one, 'as fowls fed once a day on meal will produce (it a good laying strain) at least 30 or 40 eggs more per bird during the year in comparison with others kept under exactly similar conditions that are fed on hard grain. It must be re membered, too, that these extra eggs — are produced in the winter months with the ibreakfast soft fojd, juBt at the time when eggs are most valu able. One reason why soft food in the morning is most 'beneficial to tho fowls Is that the hard corn or grain takes a certain time to soak Into the gizzard; but the soft meal passes in to the system immediately, and the fowl is nourished at once, so that no. time is lost, and the flesh or eggs are produced with less exertio.i than If hard corn were given. It pays better to give the soft meal once a day, viz., in the morning, and...

THE NEW ZEALANDER. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 March 1914

THE NEW ZBALANDER. The New Zealander is a p.urltan o£ the original stock, and he possesses most of the virtues of Puritanism and all its self-complacency. He doesn't denounce thq.-^Arts, but secretly he deplores them £ though- he doesn't ob ject to an Art Gallery, for that is somehow a thing every up-to-date city is expected to have, along,with a. sew age system and a destructor. The New Zealander is strictly moral ac cording, to the 739 Commandments is sued by the Chamber of Commerce, and he also remembers a few.of those he learned at Sunday-school. He Is pre-eminently a business man, and never puts his damaged goods in the window. When he feels that his vir tue is 'burgeoning ibeyond his capac ity to retain it he goes to Sydney for a fortnight; then he comes back and tells his friends how thoroughly shocked he was at the goings-on-over there—though probably his greatest adventure has been an indefinite ap pointment with a peroxided 'barmaid I who has a husband and throe children t...

THE GRAND OLD DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 March 1914

THE GRAND OLD DAYS. Mr. Sainsbury, Chief Commissioner of Police in Victoria, says that the old pushes like the Flying Angels, the Crutcliies, the-Emus and the White Itoses, have now quite disappeared. The good ole days are gorn, And us as played the game is left for lorn. There was a time when Crutchies and White Roses Would bash each other's jaws an' cbreak their noses; When shickered blokes that staggered 'ome at night Would meet us, an' be left for dead all right; When bobbies who annoyed us on the ibeat Would be 'arf-kicked to rags In every street, Their 'elmets broken an' their trous ers torn, But them ole days are gorn. The grand ole days are gorn,' And modern blokes is only things ot scorn. One night there was when every Bou varoo Was wild to hand out Btoush to Dock ey Drew. He was the Flyin' Angels very 'best, And so we put the boot into his chest. And eight of us were lumbered when' he died. But all acquitted when the case was tried.

WHY POTTS WAS ANGRY, John Potts, the rich sugar refiner, was fuming over his breakfast eggs. "What is the matter, John?" in quired his wife. "Matter? Why, you know how I de test charity subscriptions, atad have all my life.

EASIER TO WRITE IT. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 March 1914

EASIER TO WRITE IT. I Prior to tho epoch-making moment when liia love triumphed over his na tive bashfulness young Askam would have maintained against any odds that the hardest thing in life was to propose to the girl you worshipped. Afterwards, however, ho decided that the proposal was simply child's play compared to asking the consent of liis father-in-law elect, although that estimable old gentleman was a great friend. Flushed with success -with the daughter, he felt illled with the spirit of a hundred conquerors, and reck lessly insisted upon seeing the father at once. But upon reaching the li brary the spirit of tho hundred con querors suddenly evaporated and. left him with pale face and trembling knees and chaotic mind. "I—er—er " he stammered in sufllciently. "Indeed!" observed the old gentle man, chuckling. "Then you're' no more than human." "Ha, ha!" gasped Mr. Askam, hys terically, pretending a hilarity he was far, far from feeling. "How is your mother?" asked the old gent...

' The Archdeacon. I. iso acquaintance called Mm by any other name than the Archdeacon; but dimly It was remembered .by his friends that he had "been baptised "George." A fat and kindly man ho was, who oozed .benevolence from every human pore, had a voice which should have come up from -the depths of the sea, and a hand which touched all things with gentleness. The friendship between Hugh Don ald and the Archdeacon was of old standing. Hugh remembered the ami-' able cleric at Aberfeldy almost as long as lie could remember anything: at all. The truth was that the Very Rev. George 'Hedges fished both for. the souls of men and the bodies of salmon, and ■was almost equally Buc-i cessful at either vocation. To him, Hugh Donald was as his own bod— | and In this light he thought of him ' as he sat upon the bridge deck of the yacht Chrlstabel that Bunny after noon and listened to the golfers' bab ble. A woman! The Archdeacon prick-"] ed up his ears at such talk. 'Has ho known her long? Did y...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. THE TANGO DANGER. Wo hope this tango craze does not attack our wife. Young Mrs. Gobsa Golde, the aged banker's third help mate, has fallen a victim to it. Wit ness the story culled by our reporter. Our reporter tangoes, it seems, right smart, and at the recent house warming of George Mitzler's new Pal ace Hotel, Penn and Mrs. GobBa Golde did Ihe tango so well that they' were ;he cynosure of all eyes. At midnight old Gobsa told his wife gruffly that it was time to go. The young lady nodded, went quietly to the cloakroom, took her husband's hat and threw it in the stove. Then she returned, and paid that just as soon as Gobsa had got Ills hat and coat and ordered the carriage around, Bhe would be ready to depart with him. She had seven more dances with young Penn before the trouble was settled by landlord George lending Banker Golde a cap. Yes, we hope the tango craze does not attack our good wife.—Cinnamin son "Scimitar." The married life of Mrs. Ada Bliz zard, w...

THINK FOR YOURSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 March 1914

THINK FOR YOURSELF. In educational matters the' most im portant matter Is often neglected toy teaching children tlie thoughts of oth ers instead of cultivating their own power to think, the necessity of Which must impress itself on any thought ful person, who must realise that the thoughts, etc., of good men, ranging back 10, 15, 25, and 50 years, are not In all cases the thoughts of to-day or adaptable to the present conditions. Thus in all educational matters the one motto stands good, "Think for yourself." And now what do we find when we take a nurrtber of young -men, who are not dependent on what is generally called education for the'ir sustenance? If they have been 'brought up in a home where they have not beejx taught to think by their parents or guardians, or forced to . do so by poverty, we find invariably that those, people.who have not ibeen taught tp think >are .deficient also In will power, and as temptations come In •their way they yield to same.

"MAN WANTS BUT LITTLE HERE BELOW." [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 March 1914

"MAN WANTS BUT LITTLE HERE BELOW." Man wants but little—that Is true. A little heiress bride will do; A little house—or maybe two— In church a little cushioned pew. A little cottage at the shore— Newport would do—I'd not ask anbre. A little-mountain shooting lodge, \ little health to doctors dodge, A little ocean trip each year To Europe or to some place near; A little yacht to placos reach In wintoi-time—like, say, Palm Bench. A little box to opera hear, A lot of littlejewels clear; A little racing car, I ween, And just one tiny limousine. Oh, yes, indeed! Quite -well I know "Man wants ibut little here below." —"Judge," New York. Cameos from the courts.—Said a prisoner at Tottenham: ."It's the first time I've 'been here." "Well, pay 5s. entrance fee," replied the magistrate. —"Globe."
