IMPORTANCE OF REGULARITY IN MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 February 1914
IMPORTANCE OF REGULARITY IN MILKING. In everything regularity is gooo practice, but in- good dairying it is Lu. peritive. To produce large and ricL yields of milk is the sole function of the dairy cow, and to do this she must be of good dairy type, fed palatabk and nutritious feeds and milked clear at regular periods. Ase a rule, the cow:is milked at .5 o'clook of mornings in summer and 7 pr 8 o'clock in mornings in the win ter. The very unequal periods are made for the cow by this .sunto sun milk ing and as a consequence, the quality of her milk flow and the length of her annual period are reduced. The cow can do her best. only when milked at equal and regular periods of about 12 hours each the year round. The full supply, of milk is not in the udder ready to be drawn out before milking time comes, but two thirds ot it is produced in the glands during the operation of milking. The ud der, however, is usually filled, and the cow becomes used to this, but if the milking is delayed,. ...
GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 February 1914
GENERAL NEWS. Sunday was the seventh anni versary of the opening of the new Roman Catholic Church at St. Arnaud. The buildings and fur nishingscost £5250. There was only a little over £200 owing on the building, and on Sunday special col lections amounted to £116. Only £90 is now owing on the church. In view of the fact that the Goul burn Valley Freezing Company will be in a position to treat lambs at the beginning of next season, and owing to the exorbitant demands of the rural workers, a great many farmers in the Numurkah district have expressed their intention of greatly decreasing the amount of cultivation, and of going in more for lamb raising. They will put in an amount of crop that can be at tended to by their families. In the New Zealand Supreme Court on Mionday the conviction of Young, president of the Federation of Labor, on a charge of having incited to violence during the recent strike, was confirmed. He will have to serve three months' imprison ment. The usual hay-stack...

MOTORING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 February 1914
M.OTO!RIG NOr-nb (BY DiLop.) A careful measurement of the course selected by C. W. Korner, of South Australia, for his recent world's record for an a11-day motor cycle ride, has revealed the fact that the circuit over which he rode is only 24 miles 740 yards in length, as against the 25 miles it was esti mated to be. Whilst this makes a considerable difference in Korner'x mileage, yet it does not affect hi holding the world's ?2- hours' road record, for his actual figures noor total 851 miles 385 yards, which is still considerably better than the next best--J. G. Ramsey's (Si.A.) 824 miles 308 yards. Korner's record has been accepted by the South Australian 3Motor Cycle Club. A curious phase of the averoge motorist's nature is the peculiar iTm portance he attaches to petrol economy, whilst at the same timn h.t wi give v.ry li t: ntion saving many pounds annuaiiv through careful driving andti care of his t.yres. Striving for petrol economy is of course quite iaudabole but it certainl...

BLIND, BUT EXPERT DAIRYMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 February 1914
BLIND, BUT EXPERT DAIRYIiAN, A remarkable personality is the sub ject of a sketch sent by a correspond ent to the "Glasgow Herald" ,Mr Matthew Mitchell, whose brother is tao tenant of a farm in Scotland, despite the fact that he had been deprived o; sight at a very early age, is to be found daily attending to the stock on the farm, with a measure of success whseh would rebound to the credit of one cn dowed with all his faculties. When 5 years ald, Matthew had the misfortune to lose his sight through an accident brouht about while at play. After a hort course of instruction in the Asylum for the blind, Glasgow, he returned to his home, Ridden Farm. near Galston, of which his father, the late Mr Mat thew Mitchell, was then tenant. With marvellous aptitude, he applied himself to the work of tending to the dairy stock. Twenty-nine years ago( che family removed to Ballaird, Baltron. a large cropping and dairy farm. Some 50 cows in milk were kept. and almost without exception, they were b...
DEVELOPING VICTORIA. THE LIBERAL POLICY. (Contributed.) [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 February 1914
DEVELOPING VICTORIA. THE LIBERAL POLICY. (Contributed.) To put men on the land and to afford them no adequate means of reaching the market is a refined form of cruelty. A selector who takes up a back block may work heroically, only to find that all the profits which should be his, is lost because he has neither railway nor passeable roads. His land may be rich, his yield may be abundant, market prices may be high, and yet almost the whole may be useless to him because he has to take the lightest of loads over the worst of tracks. In two respects at least the Liberal party has done good work, and pro poses to do still better work as re gards this matter of communication. it appointed a Railways Standing Committee. Some twenty years ago there was a scandalous bribery of con9tituencies by the construction of lines, some of which were obviously useless; both in the city and in the country miles of rails laid in those days of financial insanity have been allowed to rust. Then there came ...

OIL IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA.. (To TIE ErrOR " M. & D. AnvEaTsIS.") SIR,-Enclose please find small portion of first bitumen found in Australia by me in 1857 on my sheep run in the Long Desert of South Australia. This is only rem nants of scores of bush fires made by me and others since that year. It lay there formerly in hundreds of tons on the white sands of the desert, and no doubt this has come up from below like tar or treacle, floating on the water in the de pressions, and when the water evaporated this was left from one inch to one and a half inches thick, covering acres. Yours, etc., EDWARD BRIG?HT. Prospector of Sandy Creek (now Tarnagulla) Goldfield. Maryborough, 3rd Feb., 1914.

WOMEN DECLINE PREFERENCE IN WRECKS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 February 1914
WV~.EN DECLINE PREFEREI1CB lN WRECKS. mes writers for the London Press usecd the "Women first" rule at the siinking of the Titanic as~ an argxunent against allowviag women equal political rights. Lady Aberconway, voicing the militant suffragettes, demurs to this reasoning and thi5 rule. The lives of children should come certainly first. but for themselves an equal choice of life is all that women in danger should ask or take from men. For what reason should a woman'a life be accord e-d the more valuable Women are not so highly favored by law and social cus tom as men are; the adventures and businesses in which women can engage are more limited by convention; under present conditions a woman's chance of happiness in life is not so gret. Men stand in the full sunshine of a world arranged for their own interests, and throw their shadow over the lives of women, which are often harder, less free, more suffering, than those of men. Thus life is of less value to a woman. Why, then, in ship...
NELSON'S COLUMN "ROTTING." [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 February 1914
£ELSON'& COLUMN "ROTTING." Osffliding and a tarpaulin screen at the foot of Nelson's Column. LTon don, ~roontly aroused much curiosit1 as to ~wat was going on. The explana tion is that London's atmosphere has so affeted the bronze bas-reliefs at the foot that repairs are necessary. 'hie bronze has become what is t.echicalily known as spongy, and aU the part.s affected ha~ve to be replaced with new metal. A good deal of trouble is no cessary to get the new parts to har monize with the old, for the reliefs were cast from cannon captured from the fIreneh. At preosat ody one of the sos liefs-that facing north towards the National Gallery - is being worked upon. That one is in the worst oondi tion, not only the figures, but the bronze frame, having suffered badly. The frame, in addition to having b e?ten away, has become slightly loose. 'hi's relief represents a scene firom the battlie of Aboukit. Nelson, wounded in the sido, decliues to be sueooured out of his turn by the surgeo...
GROWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 4 February 1914
(iROWLS. (By "THE GRUMBLER.!) There is much discussion in the press and elsewhere over a bit of trouble which occurred in South Africa recently. It culminated in ten of the seditionists being deported from the country. The action of the Union Government has caused a great stir in political circles in the United Kingdom and the dominions. The action of the Governmeont was most certainly high-handed, but we are all aware that severe cases re quire drastic remedies. Those who remember the late Dr. Beaney know that he made fame, fortune, and diamonds, by rushing in when others feared to tread. When other sur geons said cases were hopeless, and they were brought to the" diamond" surgeon, he acted as being of the opihion that if the poor sufferer was done for, he could be none the worse for a-touch of the surgeon's knil~e- which, by the way, Dr. Bean3y was very fond of using. The result was that many of the "hopeless" cases were restored to health and vigor. At. various times the legality...
