LAMENTABLE ACCIDENT LOSS OF THREE LIVES [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 March 1914

LAMENTABLE ACCIDENT LOSS OF THREE LIVES The residents of Orbost, were greatly shocked on Friday last when it became known, that three 'men em- ployed on the railway cutting a few miles from here had been killed by an explosion, and the feeling was in tensified when some of the details of the disaster bacame known. The explosion occurred shortly after 5 o'clock, and, owing no doubt to the conditions under which it took place, made a very loud report, which could be heard for miles round and did not fail to attract attention. The facts, as far as they can be elicited, are that on Thursday a hole about ten feet deep was made and two and a half barrels of gunpowder inserted, the hole being tamped and completed in the usual way. On the blast being fired later it failed to go off, although a smaller charge placed a short distance away did so. Next day Mr J. W. Carroll, the contractor, decided to draw the charge, and   after the men had knocked off work, proceeded to do so, wi...

THE CURATE'S STORY. A GRIMACING MANIAC. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 March 1914

THE CURATE'S STORY, ---+-- A GRIMACING MANIAC. Our curate, at our parish enter tainment the other day, told a story by way of amusing the audience which brought down the house, and established for ever his reputation as a humorist. Ascending the stage with an ex plression of horror on his face, he an sounced that he had just seen a most learful sight. As he had passed down the street he had chanced to look in to a window, and a grimacing maniac met his eye. He was foaming at the lips; and the curate went on to de scribe in detail how his eyes were bursting out of his head, how his mouth was being first drawn to one side, then to the other, and how, over and anon, he would grip the tip of his nose, and pull it high into the air. As the curate warmed to his de scription, so horrible grew his picture of the grimacing maniac that several young ladies prepared to faint; while the local policeman pressed his hel met firmly down, felt for his hand zuffs and his bludgeon, and prepared to ru...

GETTING PROTEIN. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 March 1914

CETTING PROTEIN. ....Onaef th. di?cult _roblems whiah confront dairy farmers in many of the States is the furnishing of pro tein from home sources. During re* cent years the novel plan of growing sunflowers with the corn has been adopted. This has been practiced with no little success by some far mers during recent years. The seeds of the sunflowers are mixed with those of the corn, and they are de posited with the corn planter. The aim is to have the plants about six inches apart in the row. The crop is cut with the corn harvester. The fear was that the stalks would be so large and tough that they would not be readily eaten by the cows. The fear is not justified by the facts. The cows will consume the sunflower stalks as well as they do the coarse cornsticks. If this proves to be en tirely practicable it will be a dis tinct advance in providing food for dairy cows and, in fact, for cattle generally. It will very much lessen the necessity for buying food to use with silage to balanc...

CLOVER SEED GROWING IMPROVES THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 March 1914

CLOVER SEED CROWING IMPROVE THE LAND. It is universally conceded that while clover is a soil buildee throughout its entire life, yet the process of perfecting and glazing the seed takes much of the plant energy and substance; in fact, if left stand ing for complete ripeness, the life of the plant is usually sacrificed in thi production of seed. This being the case, the careful farmer asks under what conditions, and how far he may indulge in the cloverseed business. I think the matter not so vital as many another that confronts the farmer, since in the case of the little red clover one crop must be taken off the ground before the one bearing the seed grows. This action would seem to be taxing the land, but it is a fact for the betterment of the field if this first crop is made into hay to be fed on the farm and brought back to the soil. Again, in the growth of clover the long roots have been working mira cles in the way of transfering the nitrogen of the air to the earth, and making ...
