BREEDING FOR UNIFORMITY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
BREEDING FOR UNIFORMITY. Uniformi'ty of both wool and pro geny cannot be neglected by the far mer desirous of getting the best re sults. No mattr how careful he may be in his original purchases, he will soon have need to cull for himself, without purchasing culls in the first instance, Whether merinos, come backs, or cross-breds are to be pur chaser must 'be decided according to the condition of the market and char acter of the country. A farmer can not neglect the question of Iwool up on his breeders, and they should be selected on account of 'their quality in this respect, in conjunction with the constitution, frame, 'freedom from disease, and dther desirable qualities. From a wool point of view, the imerino and comeback are 'the best. From the point of prolificness the cross-bred is easily first. The cross breds also make better mothers, giv ing more ,milk than the merino; the comebacks are probably intermedi ate in this respect. Ewes with any sign of disease should 'be rejected,...
THE FARMER'S OPPORTUNITY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
THE FARMER'S OPPORTUNITY. Essentially fine wools grow scarcer every year, and each year the de mand increases, the result -being ex treme prices for superfine wool. This season the trade early recognised the fact that there would not be enough fine wools to go around, and compe tition all along has been exception ally keen. Whilst it is a matter for regret with buyers that the special ly fine wools are gradually disap pearing, the popular type of sheep to day with lbreeders -is a robust animal producing a heavy flece of medium wool. This class of sheep has been found to be the best paying propo sition, and wool-growers are not in the business for the benefit of their health, and must cling to what pays best. Still, a word of caution is not out; of place, that fineness must not be altogether overlooked, and high as the prices of fine wool are to-day, they are likely 'to go higher .in the years to come. In fact, it is only by paying extreme prices that buyers call hope for any extensi...
FAMOUS SLOVENS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
FAMOUS SLOVENS. It is surprising how careless of their outer appearance many famous men hlave been. It is said of Turner, the great landscape painter, that his hands were the smallest and dirtiest hands on record. Perhaps that is an exaggera tion, but he was certainly very slovenly in lhis dress. He woro a black swallow tail dress coat, very much in need of a clothes-brush vigorously applied, and in the warmest as well as in the coldest weather he wore around his throat a sort of wrap or muffler, which he would unloose, lotting the ends dangle dovwn in front and dip into the colors of his palette. He always worked either with his old hat on his head or with this same large muffler over his head. His appearance was more like that of an old-time coachman than of a famous Royal Academician, for he was short and stout, witll a red and .blotchy face. Dr. Johnson's slovenliness has almost passed into a proverb. There are many contemporary accounts of his turning out of his house in, Bolt ...

The Murray Waters. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
The Murrpy Waters. ------ ; A poetically inclined correspondent embodies some pelrtinent remarks on the above subject in the following rhyming contrihution:-" We protest Ihe whole agreement politicons should expose, to give our sv ter birthright held in store. For it no Murray-Goulburn irrigation righta Ilows, and this throughout Vic - right allows, and this throughout Vic the. Legislature to avoid parochial thought, a nd hold the AMueray sacredly in Irust, as a heritage inialuble to be neither sold nor bought. Irrigation and not navigation's just. Why should na vigalion,. ur.. water rights debar, and why should irrigation the lesser waters take, for locking schemes the prospects are yet away too far. Victorian streams for storage are at stake. Why- consign our liquid wealthto a South Australian grave to give Adelaide its navigation cheap, Vito?)ian waters duty is its arid lands to save; and the cream of all our landed settlers keep."
