SEEDBED FOR WHEAT. WORKING THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 26 March 1914

SEEDBED FOR WHEAT. WORKING THE LAND. In ideciding the deptlh to which he should plough and work his land, the farmer must be guided mainly by the character and depth of the soil and the subsoil. SNo arbitrary rules can be laid down, but each must decide for himself. Ob viously, deep working; 'would be quite tindesirable wherever Athe =soil was shallow, or where it rested or an in ferior type of subsoil. It is also, very undesirable to i'bring a crudet, raw, clay subsoil- to the surface. On soils- that are naturally deep, however, it is well to give, wherever possible, a good stilf furrow: Provided that the soil -Is of sufficient `depth, and - the subsoil is satisfactory, deep working is better suited tb the requirements of an arid climate .than shliallow working.. Such working materially increases the stor age capacity of the soil for moisture, and provides for an inter- pla of mois ture and air, at a greter depth 'thtan shallow workiug, and thus leads di rectly to the formation of ...

CORRESPONDENCE. SWIMMING CLUB. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 26 March 1914

CORRESPONDENCE, SWIMMINO CLUB. TO TfE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. Sir,-As to the advisability of estab lishing a swimming club at Swan lill there are no two opinionu, but the proposed site, a short distance up stream from the town water supply, is not quite on the same footing. It appears to have been decided by the members of the club to abide by the decision of some one from Melbourne, sent by the Board of Health. But where do the public come in? There is a good deal of manmuvring. but why not bring the matter to a head. The sewerage being emptied inta the river below the town is to be de plored. Will that be improved by allowing the clean and unclean, the diseased and typhoid carrier (includ ing those in the incipient stage of typhoid), to pollute our drinking water, particularly when we have so little of it As one of the public, I enter i protest against the probability of the scourge of typhoid we have in our miost being increased rather than diminished. If there is any doubt. then...

A REMARKABLE MEETING. A 'strange adventure is recorded by a correspondent of a London paper who, meeting a-medical friend, looked in at' a Fleet-street tavern to talk things over. Here he met another friend, a master mariner. After an informal introduction his two compan ions talked of things in which he took no interest, and he joined in another conversation. Half-an-hour had elapsed when they informed. him-profusely grateful for, the introduction-that he had intro duced two brothers! They had been separated, not by quarrel, but by the estranging years. - The mariner, as a weakly boy whose i.fe was despaired of, had ben sent to a relative who lived 'mean counties away, by the sea. He had never re visited the scenes of his youth, or been seen by his parents and brothers. Forty years had passed since the brothers had met-/ The 'world doesn't judge a . man. his own clothes, but by his wife s.

THE WOMAN WHOM WAGNER LOVED. The Famous Musician's Melody of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 26 March 1914

THE WOMAN WHOM WAGNER LOVED. The Famous Musician's Melody of Life. The deposition of the mad kind, Otto of Bavaria, which has just been deci ded, recalls to the minds of all music lovers tlhe genius of the greatest mo dern composer, Richard Wagner. For it was King Ludwig, the brother of the poor madman, who befriended Wagner in the days of his greatest poverty, and whose patronage enabled him to produce his immortal works. King-Ot to himself i as a friend of this hero of music. Wagner's operas, "Lohengrin," "Tannhausc-r," and the other master pieces of his "Niebelungenlied," are naw popular throughout the world. But when he produced them they aroused the hatred of his critics and a passion ate storm of ridicule and contempt. He wrote some of them -in direst poverty and with the despairing courage of a man who knows that he is in advance of his time They reflect the storm and stress of his own life and charac ter, but they reveal also the nobility and idealism and tenderness which la...
