ANTICIPATED THE EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914

ANTICIPATED THE EFFECT. A good story is told at the expense of an under-graduate at a certain uni versity. He was attending the chemi cal lectureB of a distinguished, If not popular, professor, who had announced for his next lecture some experiments with laughing gas. The student, -who knew that persons under the influence of laughing-gas were not responsible for their words or actions, saw an op portunity of telling the professor some home-truths with impunity. On the afternoon of the lecture the professor called for a volunteer for the experiments to be made, and our undergraduate promptly came to his assistance, to the amusement of the class, which liad been taken into his conlidenco. The bag containing the hilarious gas was duly allixed to the student's mouth, and he commenced to inhale vigorously. The effect -was magical. ' The student began to abuse the pro fessor in terms which are unknown in polite circles. The professor lent a patient ear to (his testimony to his character,...

THE CAPTAIN EXPLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914

THE CAPTAIN EXPLAINS. An o)(i sea captain, who wooed and won his wife in a very brief courtship, is wont to describe, with deep-chested chuckles, the plight from which he rescued her at their first meeting. It was in the early days ot the crinoline, and the girl, dressed in her best, had come down the wharf to meet her father, also a captain, whose vessel had been sighted at tile mouth of the harbor. The wind was strong, and she soon found herself in dilliculties. "First I ever saw o' my wife," says the captain, "she was a gal—a line, able, saucv-looking craft, sail set an' scudding "before the wind straight for the end o' Tiinmin's Wharf, aending lip distress signals as she went.

SELF-SACRIFICE A VICE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914

SELF-SACRIFICE A VICE. How far is it right to carry the vir tue or self-sacrifice. Many •women set uo limits to It, and try to secure a monopoly of this particular virtue, heedless of other people's chances to practise it a little on their own ac count. We all know the mother who never allows her daughters to help in household matters because she wishes them to have a "good time," and up to a certain point she is to be admired, it is only right that young people should have a certain amount o{ recreation and amusement; ibut. un less they are to develop grit and back bone, to say nothing of an unselfish spirit, they must not have life made too easy for them. The world's great men and women have not come from the 'wealthy, leisured classes—far from it. They have-sprung from those who knew how to "toil terribly," who have had hard times in their youth, and have thereby developed character. •Mothers who sacrifice themselves in order to give the girls and boys this good time are renlly v...

A DAIRY FARMER DROPS INTO POETRY. A dairy farmer embodies his faith-, as well as his words, in the toUowinR expressive poem, which he has hung: in his stable to be known and read, by all T.vho visit his tidy premises:— I haven't much faith in the man who. complains Of the work he has chosen to do. He's lazy, or else he's deficient in brains, And, maybe, a hypocrite, too. He's likely to cheat, and he's likely to rob; Aht.v with the man who finds fault "vv: > his job. But give me the mau with the sun in his face And the shadows all dancing be hind; Who can meet his reverses with calm ness and grace, And never forget to be kind. For, whether he's wielding a sceptre or swab. I have faith in the man who's in love with Ills job.

Alberton. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914

Alberton. (f'lii.lM ul'K OWN I'OItHKSI'uMiKXT). There is a movement 011 foot hero to have ;l bathing place made for the school children to learn swimming in, as the boys have lately taken to swim ming in the river, which i", very dan gerous. I believe the idea is to haven large space scooped out at the place known as the " Meadows/'on the Hat behind the Church of England, ff the suggested plan can be carried out, the place is an ideal one. The most serious difficulty to overcome will be raising the money, but the school committee anticipate that the Education .depart ment will give .£ for £ for this pur pose. It is thought that it will not take such a great lot of money to carry out this very desirable work, as the situation lends itself admirably for the purpose. The cricket team is very well pleased with itself this season and fully expect to fmis'.i well up on the list, about runners up, they think, but they were very disappointed with the game last Saturday against Yarram.

WHEN STORING APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914

WHEN STORING APPLES. Apples for keeping must not be bruised nor tlie skin broken, there fore certain precautions are necessary In the picking. A common mistake is to pull the stem off the fruit, which leaves a' hole in the skin at that point and allows the germs of decay to enter; another Is to pluck the fruit In such a way that the stem bruises it: a twist nnd an upward movement should be given, which will generally detach the stem from the fruit spur without damaging either the tree or the fruit. CarelesB pickers sometimes break off the spurs, nnd so reduce next season's crop. The fruit should not be thrown but placed in the basket, and nny that falls on the ground should be set aside for immediate use. /There is no better way of storing apples than to spread them in single layers on a shelf in a dry shed, cel lar, of spare room.

WHAT FRUIT TREES REQUIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914

WHAT FRUIT TREES REQUIRE. The most essential elements for the production of fruit are nitrogen, potash, phosphoric acid and lime. Ni trogen encourages leaf and wood growth, which are essential to the development of the tree and to the production of the best quality of fruit. Potash, an essential constituent Jn the growth of fruits, constitutes a large proportion of the ash of the wood and more than 50 per cent of the ash of the fruit, and is also as sociated with the development of fla vor in the fruit. Phosphoric acid is essential to the development of the tree; lime is not .In Itself nn essen tial element, but assists in liberating plant food. On a soil deficient in lime, growth often continues so late that the wood does not mature nor the fruit ripen properly.

SMALL ORCHARDS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914

SMALL ORCHARDS 'Fruitgrowing Is becoming more and more of a science nowadays, and In tensive cultivation 'is an Indispensable adjunct to scientific treatment. With the great rambling orchards of old days there was little or no attempt made at real fruitgrowing on sound principles, and the consequence was that heavy losses were, in time, sus tained through the ravages of dis ease and the invasion of insects. No orcliardist who sets himself to meet the requirements of the market can afTord to submit any but good qual ity stuff, and, unless he be c. mi. lionaire—In which case he would be rearing his orchard for pleasure, not profit—he cannot provide the labor and skill necessary for the cultiva tion of large areas, wherefore, this is the day of small orchards.

SUMMER PRUNING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914

SUMMER PRUNING. Wherever young apple, pear, or apricot trees are found to have too much growth throughout the centre or the trees they should be thinned out, cutting back the superfluous growth to within about 3in. of the main limbs or sptfrs, from which they spring. This will open up the tree so as to admit light and air, which are both necessary for the pro per development and ripening of wood, as well as assisting the tree In its efforts to develop fruit spurs.
