Koc-Wee-Rup Sports. The only sports held afc lvoo-Wee Rup during the year are those which are held on or about St. Patrick's Day. This year the annual gather ing took place on Monday, and was highly successful. Although the morning was threatening it cleared and the day was an ideal 0110 for a sports meeting. Record entries had been received, and as good fields were anticipated it was only to be expected that the gate takings would reach a record, which they did, over £40 being taken. • This does not include members' tickets, which will bring the total up another £10 or £15.

RECORD LANS DEAL COVENT GARDEN ESTATE ; Mr Mallaby-Deeley, M.P., was the ' most-talked-of man in England yester day (says "The Dally News," Decem ! ber 18). As the purchaser of the Duke ' of Bedford's Covent Garden estate, he : becomes a person of extraordinary in terest. What is he going to do with his purchase? That was one of the questions put to hiin by a "Daily News" representative last night. Would he sell the market to the London County Council? He replied that, if approached, he would be prepared to treat with the London County Council "as a willing seller and a willing purchaser." "I would rather sell it to a public authority than to a private owners," he said. "It is a property, I think, which would be better held—on account of its size and importance—by a public authority. But so long as it is in my possession X intend to carry it on in a public-spirited way. Naturally, I do not want to lose by it." He repudiated the idea that the estate was going to be run on American hu...
POULTRY STRAIGHT-BREASTED FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914
POU LT R Y STRAIGHT-BREASTED FOWLS. The public will usually buy in tb« toarket a fowl which has a straight ireast in preference to one which la trooked-breasted, and lor a very good reason—that' % bird which has a itraight breast-bone will usually carry More meat *pon it, and will .conse juently Iodic plumper and bigger, and will command, therefore, a better price, besides finding a more ready sale. The principal reason why so many chick tms are crooked-breasted is that farm ers allow them to perch too early to life. ' Chickens ought always to be rooBted on straw on the floor if the; ire intended for market, and should not be allowed to perch at all; thea iny ol them showing a disposition to wards a crooked breast will not be likely to develop it. It may be remark ed that many chickens have a disposi tion in that direction, particularly those which have been inbred..

Reassuring. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914
Reassuring. It was rather rough weather at Bea, and the captain was continually being asked if there were any danger by a certain nervous and fussy parson who was aboard. Getting tired of it, at last he led the parson to a speaking-tube connected with the stokehold. "Put your ear to that," said the captain. The parson, on doing so, heard a tremendous uproar going on below, accompanied by some terrible swear ing. "There," said the captain, "do you think those men would ewear like that if they thought that their last mo ment had come?" "To be sure they would not," said the parson, and went away satisfied; ibut eoon afterwards, getting nervous again, he rushed to the speaking-tube and listened. "Ah," he said, much relieved, "thank Heaven they're still at it."

POULTRY SCRATCHINGS. Save the bones from the Kitchen and I grind them for your fowls. • Clean, fresh water should bo sup plied every morning. Keep it out ol the sun. II the poultry stand around listless and droopy, there is something wrong with them. It you cannot manage to make a suc cess of poultry-keeping, don't blanu anyone but yourself. Don't neglect the little things; thej are the road that leads to success In any business.. k The eggs from old hens usually pro duce stronger chicks than do the eggi from pullets. Care should be taken to not over reed young chicks. Feed them spar lngly and often. Always have feed and water wher« a sitting hen can get them when sh« comes off tha nest. Cbicks are often raised more satis factorily in small, clean yards than when allowed free range. ; Don't forget that charcoal is a good bowel regulator, and should be fed oc casionally to the young cbicks.

A Gentle Reminder. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914
A Gentle Reminder. A native of a small village in Scot land, having "made good" in "furrin "parts," returned home, and, to show Ills more unfortunate brethren at home how little he valued £ s. d., he presented a brand new umbrella stand to the "auld kirk." In accordance with the usual custom the presenta tion was announced by the beadle on the Sabbath, just before the service started. The beadle, a grizzled old warrior of about seventy, delivered himself in the following manner: — "Nae doot, brethren, ye'U a* hae no ticed the bran new umbrella stan' that oor worthy neiber, Sir. MacRae, has gien tae the kirk. Noo umbrellas is umbrellas, and human nuturs human naturs, an' although it ill-behoves me tae say onything agin ony worshipper i' this sacred place, yet tae tell ye the truth we wad a' be verry pleased if Sandy MacQuibbar wad tak' a sittin' a wee bittle farer awa fra the door!"

THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914
THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. Under a costly canopy iTlie village blacksmith sits, Before - him is a touring car, Broken to little ibits, And the owner, and the chauffeur, too, Have almost lost their "wits. The village 'blacksmith smiles with glee As he lights his fat cigar; He tells his helpers what to do To straighten up the car; And the owner, and the chauffur, too, Stand humbly where they are. The children going homo from school Look in at the open door; They like to see him make his 'bills, And hear the owners roar; And the chauffeur weep, as they de clare They ne'er paid that tbifore. lie goes each morning to the bank, And salts away his cash; A high silk hat and long frock coat Help him to cut a dash. But the owner, and the chauffeur, too, Their teeth all vainly gnash. The chestnut tree long since has died. The smith does not repine; His humble shop has grown into A building toig and fine. And it hears "Garage" above the door On a large electric sign.

A TRUE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914
A TRUE STORY. A number of years ago some miners in Wales, in exploring an old disused pit, 'found the body of a young man dressed in a fashion long out of date. The peculiar action of the air of the mine was such as preserved the body so perfectly that it appeared asleep rather than dead. The miners were puzzled at the cir cumstances. No one in the district had been missed within their remem brance, and at last it was resolved to bring in the oldest inhabitant—an old lady over eighty years old, who had lived single in the village all her life. When she was taken into the room where the dead man lay, a strange thing occurred. The old lady fell on lie corpse, and kisseu it, and address ed it by every term of endearment spoken in a bygone generation. He was her only love, and she had waited for liim her long life. She knew he had not forsaken her. The old lady and young man had been betrothed sixty years before. Her lover had disappeared myseriously, and she had kept her faith during t...
IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914
IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? By Frank Cufley. Many people throughout the world are cherishing the Idea that Bome day war will become a thing of the past, and universal peace will foe establish ed. Only a lew weeks ago a great palace was opened, and thousands of pounds have 'been given to the cause; but is the Ideal state possible, or are the advocates chasing a phantom? Of course, / quite agree that it ap pears possible to settle disputes by conference; but it is not appearances which tell, hut facts. Does Nature permit universal peace? Darwin, who was perhaps the gratest nature student the -world has ever produced, offers his theory of the survival of the fittest. How does this fit in with the ideal? As far back in the history of the world as time will allow us to see the whole living things have been fighting for the mastery one over another. Not only animal life; it also applies to plant life. The lower animals are in many cases protected from themselves, as in the bovine class. ...
