Blakely had departed for England weeks ago, with all the necessary documents for the prosecution of his big scheme in. his possession, and Macdonald, now with plenty of funds in hand, had thrown himself heart and soul into tile task of developing the mine. Me had engaged as his chief assistant a smart your,!; engineer named Forrest, fresh from a famous mining school at home, whose hick of practical experience was fully com pensated for in John's eyes by a boundless enihusiasm, which lie had the faculty of imparting to tiie miners under liis charge. So far, however, their ii11i;. d efforts a! locating the reef had heen no more successful than MacdonaM's previous ones. They had bored ami tunnelled in various direc tions from i he main shaft, and al though no hint of the precious ore had been revealed, at least the pass ages, under Forrest's skilful guidance, wore masterpieces of underground eons:ruction.

BE KIND TO THE OLD. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 April 1914

BE KIND TO THE OLD. We do not know anything that ro quires more tact am] inoro tenderness than the treatment of old people by those who are younger than thorn selves. Show a kind and thoughtful regard for their feelings; give then something to do that they can do; be respectful, deferential, reverential even, and you will reap a rich harvot of hope in hearts in which, perhaps, it was almost dead, and of gratitude and affection for yourself; the more so as the old are beginning to distrust their own powers, and sometimes ask them selves the question if their day of use fulness is not pnsfc.

THE UNDER DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 April 1914

THE UNDER DOG. Now here is a jong of the under dog, " The down under dog in the light; For though ho is down, and he's terribly down, Maybe lie's the dog that is right. h isn't the cur who is hirgv-st, you know, Whose morals are always the beat. And a. sanctiiied pup with a halo, i trow, Might succumb in a physical test. It might could be right-but ii cannot you see, And I think you'll admit it were quaint If a blacksmith must always the beat ot' men be, And a bruiser must nose as a saint. The man who succeeds may succeed as a knave, And in morals be fearfully light. And that's why your sympathy kindly I crave For the \ves>U under dug in the light. So here is a. cheer for the poor under dog; He is not the strongest, but then, it may hap that he's better by far than the dog That chews him again and again. His stock may be finer, his loyally proved, And I think you will hardly demur, When I say that quite often the dog on the top Is the scurviest, kind of a cur. And as the ruhj run...

FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 April 1914

FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. Experiments have 'been carried out !>y (lie French Academy of Sciences, to test ;lie effect of feeding on the quality anil size of eggs to find out how to produce the biggest eggs. Three lo-3 of ducks were fed on Hesh. Fish a nil vegetables. Those fed on the fish diet laid the greatest num ber of eggs, but they were of the poorest quality. The heaviest eggs were laid by those fed on the flesh diet, whilst thoso fed on pure grain diet also boat the lish-fpd birds both for quality and weight, of egg. Tin- .American poultry raisers are agreed that the best quality and heaviest eggs are got from fowls fed ou grain with a small percentage of flesh food. Strange to say, they hold that the foraging of insect and such like life has a deteriorating effect on the quality of the egg, and they are also unanimous in the filing that too much green food has a similar effect ;m the quality and weight of an egg. It is on this account that they agree that the Asiatic brown-...
