HOW DESERTS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 May 1914
HOW DESERTS ARE FORMED. There is a popular idea that deserts ilke the Sahara are the bottoms pf ancient seas which have been-lifted above their original -elevation by geological forces. This notion is an erroneous one. It is absolutely cer tain, high authorities contend, that the sands of all the, great deserts have been formed-on the spot by the disintegration of the solid rocks on which they rest. Desert sands cor respond in all respects, so far as their mode of origin is concerned, to the dust and sand that accumulates on our high roads in summer. All deserts are situated where the winds from the ocean, before reaching them are exhau!sted of their moisture by passing over mountains or across ex tensive tracts of land.

Sunday Corner. Life's Possibilities. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 May 1914
Sunday Gornet. ILife's Possibilities. Think of, all the magnificent powers God has put into these lives of ours. He has given us minds to think, to reason, to imagine, to roam amid the stars to wander into the very borders of infinity, to climb the golden stairs of faith even into the tridst of heaven's bright ness. He has given us hearts to feel, to suffer, to rejoice, to love. He has put into our beings the pos sibilities of the noblest achieve muents and the loftiest attainments. Oh, what a shame it is for one born to live in immortal glory, called to be a child of God, to become like the Son of God, yet to be content with a poor earthly life and to live without reaching up toward God and heaven! -- I

A. N. A. BANQUET AT THE OZONE HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 May 1914
A. N. A. BANQUET AT THE OZONE HOTEL. The anniversay of the Queenseliff branch of the A.N.A. was celebrated on Wednesday evening by a banquet at the Ozone hotel. It will be remembered that last year the branch held a similar function, at which there was a very large atten dance in celebration of the Jubilee of.. the Borough. This year the banquet was to perpetuate the gathering of pioneers and' old boys ' of thedistrict-a commendable ob ject. By reason of bad weather and fidisposition of a number, however, the' atteidance was not large. Everything had been nicely ar ranged-invitations issued, a Suinp tuous dinner prepared in Host Klug's excellent manner, and the chief-President of the association and members of Parliament invited -but hitches happened'just at the last moment. First the weather prevented several of the old and regarded citizens from attending, the members of Parliament (Messrs W. Kendall, M.H.R., and J. F. Farrer, .M.L.A.) apologised, and the train by which the chief-...

THE POULTRY FARM. CLEAN EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 May 1914
THE POULTRY FARM. -4 P---- ., CLEAN EGGS. : In order to have clean eggs it h necessary to have clean nests. Nestt should be lined with clean straw. We have tried various kinds of .lests, in. eluding several patent sanitary nesti and have yet to find one that is self cleaning. After years of experiment ing along this line we have at lasl come to what I call a solution of the problem. We are now using wire screen bottom nests entirely, and they are giving perfect satisfaction. Not only are they self-cleaning but they are also better in the respect that eggs do not get nearly so easi, ly broken in them. We use one-fourth-inch galvanised wire screening, and t.ack it on to the bottom of the nests where the boards ordinarily go. These wire-bottom nests also make it much casier to keep the nests free from lice, or mites. To our way of thinking it is by far the very best nest for laying hens. For sitting hens we do not recom mend it because the eggs in it evapo. rate too much. Gather the eg...

REGISTRATION OF GRADE COWS. AN ASSOCIATION WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 May 1914
REGISTRATION OF GRADE COWS. AN ASSOCIATION WANTED. There is an opportunity (remarks "Hoard's Dairyman") to establish registries for grade stock of the dif feient breeds where records are re quired before animals are admitted to registration. For instance, a grade cow five years or more that has pro ducedl 3601h. of fat would be eligible to registration, hut her progeny could not he registered until it had made the required amount of fat. If this sort of a registry were estab lished it would mean the elimination of all poor producing animals and woubl in time produce an exceptional dairy breed, for it would only be a matter of time when all inferior ani mals would be eliminated. An association for the above pur pose would be of immense benefit to the dairying industry, and would in no way be antagonistic to the good work the special breed associations are doing. The prodncing power of a cow is, after all, the real test of her value, and any movement to increase her producing power sh...

A nice compliment was .paid Mr W. B. Cuzens by Chief-president Taylor at the A.N.A. -banquet on Wednesday. In regretting the oc casion of Mr Cuzens' absence, he spoke most complimetitary of him as secretary-ever ready to help and work for the good of the asso ciation. Mr W. H. Brinsmead and Mr H. W. Thompsonr and party en gaged in a motor tour of part of the Western district during ths week, and although the weather was bleak and wet, thoroughly en jofred the trip. The similarity between the chief president of the A.N.A. (Mr Taylor) and president of the local branch (CrKlug) was striking as they were seated together at the banquet table on Wednesday at the Ozone. Both are corpulent and solid, both clean shaven; and both have the same kindly expression. The marriage of Miss Myra M'Leod, eldest ,daughter of Mr and M...
TO GET RID OF SORREL. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 May 1914
TO GET RID OF SORREL. Sorrel is a weed which gives a lot of trouble on some of our ligh.er lands, and is not easy to get rid of. There arc two methods of treating land on which this troublesome weie grows. One way is to cultivate i.'it land in the summer months with a tined implement, and so gra~duaily kill the sorrel by dragging it put andl exposing it to the sun; and the other way is to plough the land fairly deeply at the end of the win ter, and sow a crop of peas or spring barley, which will get a good start before the sorrel, which does not make much headway in the win. ter, . __38
HOW TO MAKE A FLY-TRAP. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 30 May 1914
HOW TO MAKE A FLY-TRAP. An ingenious dairyman has con structed a home-made fly-trap which he has found effective in ridding his place of business of the pests. The trap is made from a box l1ft. long, Ift. high, and lft. wide, both the sides and the top being sawn out and covered with wire netting. The box is then raised about a foot from the floor, and the neck of a large funnel is run up through the bottom of the ibox aidd adjusted tight, so that the mouth of the funnel is about an inch from the floor. A saucer of molasses or something sweet to draw the flies is set under the mouth of the funnel, leaving room for the flies to go up the funnel and into the box. Ans soon as the box is filled the flies are drowned, and the process repeated. "Now this," sai'd the barber, hold ing up a pink bottle, "is a splendid thing for baldness.'' " Thank you," replied his victim, coldly. "I have all the baldness I re. quire."

FOOTBALL. PREMIERSHIP MATCHES, SENSATIONAL PLAY. UNEXPECTED RESULTS, Football, like all other. games, has its peculiarities, which came before followers on Saturday last. Though Queenscliff journeyed to 'Portarlington with a weak team no one expected the Artillery to mete out such an overwhelming defeat. On past performances of!the winners `z.uch a result was entirely unex o-pected. The Artillery made off from the start and established a sound lead, which-their opponents never overtook. During the course of the match Barbour scored a wonderful goal. Kicking near the scoring board on the beach wing with the wind in his favor, Barbour landed the ball through the east goal, the ball going outside the fence. A round of applause fol lowed the achievment, it being the ` finest goal scored for a long time. Another surprise occurred on the local ground when Ports met their first defeat at. the hands of the En gineers,. who also scored a fine victory. The result of this match was more expect...
