TURF TOPICS. (Written for [?] Heyfield "Herald") [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 8 October 1914
TURF -TOPICS. (Written for Heyfield "Herald") Judging by the entries made last week tor the minor events of th° spring campaign, owners of racehorses liavo not yet become troubled with, the war >scare. All things consider ed, the nomination was highly satis factory. Whatever may happen ai terwards. the Spring carnival will be the usual big success from a racing po:nt of view. The number of horses from Sydney will not fall short of the average, and altogether tiiero is rea son to believe that fields will keep up all through' tho piece. . As before predicted, wo are bound to experience a slump in racing auuirs after the present busy season is over. It is always rather quiet from the close of the Melbourne Cup meeting up to tho approach of the Autumn meeting, and this season there- will be additional reason for the slack time. Tho game will, however, go on, and maybe, the outlook will brighten up before long, both in regard to tiie war and the drought. LHyveil's withdrawal from the ...

MAFFRA SHIRE COUNCIL. ENGINEER'S REPORT. Tenders have been invited for the necessary forming, gravelling, etc., on the Hey field back road from the Boggy Creek bridge west to the Tinamba to Gibson and Knox's bridge road. Mrs Gillis's complaint-.There are two irrigation culverts across the road leading to Mrs Gillis's property, both erected by Mt Boland. Mis Gillis states that the road is damaged by the irrigation works, and the banks On Mr Boland's land back the flood water upon her land. I told her the flood damage was a matter between her and Mr Boland, and that the council would take care of the injuries to the road. As far as the road is concerned, Mrs Gillies will be satisfied if the ap proaches to the culverts are gravelled and about four chains of formation ns'ide across the low place west of the panels. I saw Mr John Boland, and lie promised to do these improvements if the cjuncil so desired. I would re commend that Mr Boland be given a definite time to do the work so that t...
APPLYING FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 8 October 1914
APPLYING FERTILISERS. A point often considered is whether it is better to apply fertilisers by drill or broadcast, and experiments were car ried out last year by the National So ciety lof Hungarian Agriculturalists to test the relative advantages of the tiro methods. The first experiment with barley led to no definite results, as, owing to the heavy rainfall, the crop was badly logged. It was, however, noticed that a moderate application by drill of superphosphates and nitrate of soda produced no ill effects on the germina tion of the sued, and rather stimulated tho first development of the younger plants. More successful results were obtain ed_ with sugar beet, manuring in the drills leading to better development of tho crop, and while there were no great differences in the sugar content of the beets, the .yield obtained was greatly in favor of this method. Even where the amount of superphosphate and nitrate of soda applied in the drill was only half that broadcasted, the surface o...

The Heyfield Herald. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY MORNING [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 8 October 1914
PUBLISIIKD KVKRY THUKSDAY HORNING . The present war has given the mili tary spirit in Australia an impetus which it lias never received before. Australia has shown conclusively that she. lias the material as well as the animating spirit to become a defensive military power, and not, as some c«rping critics may think a drag on the Mother Land. Within a few months Australia has undergone her first great national awakening, though we believe what she is doing, and will do, in sending her contingents to the front, or wherever tliey may be destined to go, is more an ebullition of loyalty than a call of necessity. But it is quite sufficient for the purpose. Siie has now given a remarkable demonstration of her taste for soldiering, the warmth of her attachment (o the Imperial idea, and her determination to stand or fall with the Empire. There is another way in which patriotic Australia can show her loyalty, and take advantage of the great industrial opportunities the war must inevitably of...
MAKE YOUR DISTRICT KNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 8 October 1914
MAKE YOUR DISTRICT KNOWN. Concerning some parts of the district news comes but seldom. Now this is not the fault of the Editor, for he has no miraculous [towers of knowing what is happening in all the placcs in the area of ciiculation. It is the fault of residents in silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and caune the silence to cease. If no one else it doing it for your district, will YOU try on the lines] Send accounts of public and social events in your township or neighbor hood. Give information, but let criticism alone. The information will probably be right, ami the public can make their own deductions therefrom. Do not bother about grammar orspel ling ; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifles. Andrew Carnegie built up liis colossal fortune by substituting mechanical power where animal power had previously been used. He realized that/«eZ is far cheaper than labour,' and' applied that principle to his business with great success. In these day...

TURF TOPICS. (Written for [?] Heyfield "Herald") [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 15 October 1914
TURF TOPICS. (Written for " - Heyfield "Herald") Some idea of the dearth of good horses in hand at Flemington just now was gained on Saturday, when the book ings to Caulfield from headquarters only numbered about half the general aver age for Guineas Day. James Seobie j usually has mything up to a dozen ! horses ready for this meeting, but he only put four representatives into the field on Saturday and had nothing to take part in races like the Caullield Stakes, the Guineas, and Toorak Han dicap. For a number of years until this season Seobie has had a represen tative in each of these races. Another prominent trainer who had a light day on Saturday was W. S. Hickenbotham, for he (Ally had one horse running. It was strange to see the Caulfield Stakes, Guineas, and Toorak being contested without the two stables mentioned tak ing a hand. There is nothing very impressive looking about Sir Alwynton, which has for weeks been a good deal spoken of in connection with the Caulfield Cup. The ...
NEWS SUMMARY [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 15 October 1914
NEWS SUMMARY Owing to the drought and the war there are about 800 members of the Agricultural Implement Makers' Union out'of employment. The secretary (Mr. E. F. Russell) stated on Friday that the position was even worse than prior to tlie drought of 1902. The lack of work was, he said, due mainly to the fact that there would not be much de mand for agricultural implements this year. The matter will be considered at the. next meeting of the union. The -suggestion of Mr. Cann, Chief Secretary of the New South Wales Labor party, that 10,000 moro men should be employed in connection with the construction of the Kalgoorlie to Fort Augusta railway, and that em ployment should be found for another 1000 at the Federal capital, is not like ly to be carried out. "It might not seem difficult to my friend, Mr. Cann, to pile 10,000 more men on the rail way works," said the Minister lor Home Affairs on Friday, "but he should recollect that the line is being built in a part of Australia where the...

THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXI. TRYING FOR CONSOLATION STAKES. Cis Deverel, in spite of his resolution, to forget, returned from the Rocky Mountains more madly in love than ever Wherever lie went the face ox Ida 'Hamilton pursued him with its large beseeching eyes, and when he came back to find it looking down on him from the canvas of Baymond Du val, and all the gossips of his club seemed to make it a peg on to which to hang their vilest stories, then he knew the utmost bitterness of lite, and tried to harden himself into stone, r that he might feel no more. There is no use in trying to mend a shat tered idol. All the cement in the world won't give it back its former sacred claims for worship. Once fal len- from its high estate, no matter what becomes of it, throw the frag ments on the dust-heap, and perhaps its pedestal will do for another. That other was waiting to be chosen with all the fiercte impatience of a love that is not certain of return, and Cis Deverel, though less con...

RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION IN STATE SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 15 October 1914
RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION STATE SCHOOLS. (By Silas Suell). The question of religions instruction in State schools is one that is exciting a singular amount of interest at the present time, as it will have a great bearing on the result of the forthcoming State elections It affects the very basic principles of our educational sys tem, which has been established by the people of this country, after grave thought and the undertaking of great sacrifices, in order that the advantages of education may be placed within teach of the poorest child in the land. I know this is a ticklish subject to deal with, but I am going to have my say even if I get my head chopped off. The system has justified the faith and foresight of its founders, and to-day stands as the keystone of the arch of democracy, so much so that anyone who makes an assault upon it- must be re garded either as an anarchist or a crank. But there is a large section of the com munity who while not desirous of in terfering with the syst...

HETFIELD POLICE COURT. At the Heyfielu Court of Petty Ses sions on Thursday last, before Mr VV. W. Harris, P.M., Mr M'Oart, on be half of the Victorian Railways Com missioners, proceeded against George Crisp, farmer, of Maffra, for allowing 7 head of cattle to trespass on railway property at Hey field on 27 th August last. Mr Rice appeared for the defendant, and contended that no negligence had been shown, as the cattie were in charge of the herdsman for the Maffra shire. After considerable argument, the P.M. said he considered the case had been proved, and that the owner of the cattle and not the shire, was responsible for the trespass. A fine of Ids, with 10s costs was inflicted.
