MOST ANNOYING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

MOST ANNOYING. Mrs. Crump looked at her friend, Mrs. Binks, and sighed' as her hus band went out of the room. "Ah, my dear, it's a sad thing to see my old man losing his hair that way as none knows better what it.is than yourself Mrs. Binks."" "'ou speak truly, Mrs. Crump; sad it is. After my George had his illness in the spring, his hair fairly moulted off of him, and now his head's as smooth as smooth." "It must be so uncomfortable, what with flies and things, not to speak of the cold. Mrs. Binks." "'Well, do you know it's aot the hiles that worry him so much, nor yet the cold It's having to weai' his hait in the bedroom when he washes himself, as you'll fihd out with your good man. You see, not having any hair to go by now, he can't tell when lie's finished washing his face unless he-keeps his hat on. That's the bother of it." He sat by a girl whose bathmut, glut, Whose cap and whose shoes wro dry; ,nd she would have thought him a perfect brute, If he hadn't--so that was why l

Workers Compensation Act [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

Workers Compensation Act It is hard to realise what our legislators were about when they allowed such a one-eyed measure as the Workmen's Compensation Act to be passed. The provisions are most drastic and inequitable and every' employer of labor is to be harshly penalised by contribut ing to a fund, which is to onily ben efit his workmen, while taking a s:m of £600,000 out of his pockets for the premiums for the benefit of his employees who frequently look upon him as their natural enemy and one who ought to be put out of existence. The Country Party in the Legislative Assembly did certainly try to make the measure more equitable by compelling- all persons to the contract to contribute on a fairer basis, viz., the employer to pay one half, the State one sixth and the employee two thirds, but this was rejected with the conse quence that the employer will have. to make up the sum abovemention ed. The- matter of compensation is a just affair, but why should only one side be over-taxed ...

A Trip to the Rubicon Falls. No. 3 [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

A Trip to the Rubicon Falls. No. 3 To these who are desirous of spending a few - days in having a pleasanlt outing cannot do better than visit this ordeal spot. The ruggedness of the scenery and the rejuvenating effects of the moun t in air will amply compensate for the trouble they experience in mak ing the trip. Excursionists iave about Mount Buffalo. and the mag nificence of its scenery, while those who have crossed the Blue Moun. ,ins in N S.W. are under the im pression that there are no pleasure resorts to equal them; yet, strange to say, and paradoxical as it may seem, almost at their very doors nature presents to them as interest a sight as the human eye could wish to gaze upon. But it is not my intention to write a panegeric on the beauties surrounding either side of the de, p and precipitous mountain banks of the Rubicon, therefore I must hark back to the mill where our party are resting. About midday half the number rati rierl to where the cars were left; the other half ha...

GREEN MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

GREEN MANURING. The manuring of laud with a green clover or other suitable crop tends ma terially to- increase the ptoductivity and fertility of that soil. Years ago, the practioe of growing such a crop and ploughing it in as manure was very popular indeed, but it is less extensively practised nowadays, tlie usual method being to feed the green crop off the ground. There are, of course, 'ar tain" leguminous plants which enrich the soil to a considerable extent; in fact, ii. lor example, the clover is ploughed in, it returns more to the land than it extricated from it, that is, if it is ploughed in just at the time ahen it has come fully in flower. One of the great advantages of green man uring is that the decaying organio mat-. ter or humus help's to retain add con serve the moisture and the valuable fertilising properties of the soil; in this respect it is especially useful in dry sandy soils, with permtaloe si b soils, that occasion a great watne of the manurial properties of dung...

THE TRAVELLING CUSHION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

THE TRAVELLING CUSHION. A travelling cushion should form part of the luggage of everyone de siring oomfort- dur;ng a railway louL ney, ard a cushion that can also be used to carry various odds and ends should prove invaluable. A dark cloth covering should . be mado for an ordinary down cushion. Ou one side of this covering two p?a kets can be placed. The lower pocket, which should be, cut in the material itself, should go right across the cushion, about half way down, and should extend itself to the bottom edge; this pocket will be found most useful for holding news papers and magazines. Tho other pocket, to be made with a flap, should be stitched on about the centre of the upper portion of the same side. For ease in carrying it is advisable to add a small cloth handle at the top of the cushion. These dushions are particularly fascinating carried out in soft suedeo or leather, with cut fringed trimmings.

A LAKE OF SOAP. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

A LAKE OF SOAP. One of Nature's marvels is to be seen in the north-east corner of the State of Washington. It is a lake which bcars the name of Soap Lake, and is three miles in length by one mile in breadth. The water in the lake tastes like a mixture of soap and salt, and its peouliar properties are such that when the water is heated, no soap is required for a bath, for as soon as the water comes into contact with the natural oil of the skin, it is gently rubbed, it forms a beautiful lather. The only drawback is that when ap plied to the head, one's hair is apt to turn from its natural color to a dusty red, if not washed with fresh water. In other words, it bleaches, the soda in the water no doubt being the cause of this. The Soap lake is well-known through out America on account of its wonder ful healing properties. Indeed, it is asserted that its waters provide a oure for all the ills the flesh is heir to. lheumatism, skin diseases, stomach and blood disorders-all seem to give wa...

ADVICE BY A LADY DOCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

ADVICE BY A LADYu DOCTOR. "One of tfie peculiarities of the pres ent day," said Dr Mary Scharlieb, lecturing at thh Landln fnstitute ot Hygienie late:, "is uita wn i.:e ,, perfect determination we will suffer no pain we can possibly avoid, and that we will be very impatient and dis agreeable when pain is inevitable. "Because we feel like that,' she ob served, "we have a tendency to take drugs to relieve pain. This is not the spirit which we have always hoped is charaoteristic of the English. This is not the spirit which enabled Captain Scott to write seven, eight, or nine really cheerful letters as he watched his companions die and felt that he himself must go in an hour or little more.' 'Those who wanted to suffer and be strong, she said, must not take those destructive drugs whose names end in "al." She named sulphonal, veronal, and chloral, with the warning that none of these should be taken, except under the immediate direotion of the doctor; and the doctor ought to protect himn...

THE HOG. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

THE HOG;. 3f all domestio brutes the hug for swinishness is worst; in all the bestial eatalogue he's easily the first. For oth ers he has no regard,.has no concern al all; the weaker pigs he pushes hard,, and sends them to the wall. FHe gets his legs inside the trough and sips the sparkling slop, and t'otber hogs must root him off if they would get a drop. i woen he's riding in a car, two seats he'll ocoupy, and smoke a black and rank cigar, while women gasp and cry. In mud holes he's inclined to doze, when there's no grub about; a ring is fastened in his nose, so he oan't ;uanel out. And when be drives abroad by day, in auto car or sich, all folks, to give,him right of way, must drive into the ditch. Oh, whether he is in a pen, with garbage heaps to chew, or in the busy haunts of men. the hog's a hog all through I You see him fight ing for the slop amid the barnoard gloom; you see him in the barber shop; in public.reading-room; you- find him in the syhagogue and in the taverns. fin...

MARRYING IN HASTE. DOES IT MEAN REPENTING AT LEISURE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

MARRYING IN HASTE. DOE-S IT MEAN REPENTING AT LEISURE. The proverb "marry in.haste, repent at leisure," would be more satisfactory if someone would be kind enough co explain the exact meaning of the word "hasto." No doubt the average s-n sible snail, crossing a country road, imagines itself to be progressing at a breakneck pace and brilliantly dodg ing the motor traffic. It would be surprised and hurt if it were to learn that we regard it as a symbol of ex treme slowness. And there are human beings whose mental processes resemble the physical advance of the snail. They are think ing as fast as they can. In their own opinion they are making up their minds with admirable velocity. But to the onlookers their calm leisureliness .s maddening. "How slow he is to propose l" ex claim all the friends of the girl whose suitor has taken a year to come to th2 point. Nevertheless; the good fellow may be rushing to his doom with what seems to him the speed and inevitable ness of an avalanche. The...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "husticus.") Efforts are still being made to get at what is wanted to bring about a useful functionl for the Agricultural High SSei:ools. It seems to be a difoicult task. Either the budding farmers do not want tuition or the plan upon which the Department is prviding it does not find favor. As a result of considerable deliberation recently on the part of of licials as to how to put the Warrnam heeool Aricuitural Bigh School on a more satisfactory basis, it was eventu ally agreed to completely separate the control of the school farm from the high school itself, and that Mr Grace farm Manager, and Mr Hauschildt, ag ricultural teacher at the school, should be entirely responsible for the farm and agricultural education generally. It was also decided that the agricultural students should attend at the farm full time, except two half days a week to be spent at the school; that the public should be admitted free to the classes at the farm; that weekly time-tables be ...

THE CARE OF PALMS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

.THE CARE OF PALMS.. Palms grown in pots and kept indoors always require considerable care in both wasling and watering. The correct method is to give them a bath once-a week, and then leave them alone, that is, to put the whole pot just up to the brim, but not over it,. into a bath, of tepid water. Let the pjlant stand so immersed for twenty-five minutes, and n,~,anwhile, carefully, and lightly wash the stalk and all the leaves, above and below, with] a weak solution of soap and water. The soap should be castile or a kind free from alkali. Its use is to keep out the dust germs. The palm leaves and stalks should all be carefully and lightly dried with a soft piece of old silk, and the pot put back in its place in the room. They should never, on any account, be left wet. The good farmer is never too busy to clean and put away his implements and tools !wmen he has finished with them. They will hoe wa'nted again next year. and with attention, their period of usefulness will be extended...

AMONG THE KINGFISH. SPORT FOR STRONG MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

AMONG THE KINGFISH. SPORT FOR STRONG MEN. . A sport that is bscuoming very popu lar amongst New Zealand fishermen and those from abroad is the pursuit of the kingfish, which abounds in summer in several parts of the Auckland coast, but which is particularly plentiful in the Bay of Islands. The kingfish is ire quently caught near Auckland, but the waters around Cape Brett and the Bay of Islands appear to be a particularly favorite haunt of the fish, and the ex cellent shelter for launches that is avall able there in case of emergency largely assists in making this part of the coast an ideal fishing ground. "Rod fishing," says Mr. D'Arcy (a recent visitor), "is usually referred to as the 'gentle art,' but as applied to kingfishing it is quite a misnomer, for 1 found it to be about the most strenu ous physical exeroise that I have un dertaken for many years. It wou!d require considerable endurance to fol low it up continuously, but for about two or three days a week it provides about t...

THE LEADING PORT OF THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914

THE-LEADING PORT OF THE WORLD. The very latest estimates of the value of the exports and imports of the ten leading ports of the world show that New York now stands at the head of the list, with an advantage of nearly two hundred million dollars over Lon don. The "'Marine Review" says that New York's total of exports and im parts, now valued at 1,973,981,693 dol lars, is over five times the amount of commerce that was carried on by the entire country half a century ago. As to the future, it is declared that tihe Panama Canal is bound to streng then the lead now secured by this port; for the canal will bring New York 1600 miles nearer to Yokohama than is Liverpool; 2500 miles nearer Sydney; 4000 miles nearer Wellington, New Zealand; and 2574 miles nearer Val paraiso. Bremen and Hamburg being some' 500 miles further removed from the canal than Liverpool, it is evident that the new conditions-the general I e arrangement of trade routes-will tend to strengthen the position of this port,...
