THE COW'S DAILY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 15 May 1914

THE COW'S DAILY WORK. The wise dairyman hold in rhind that a good dairy cow in full milk is expending as much energy as a horse at hard labour, and this without ces sation for many months. We have learned that the harder the horse works the more grain and the less roughage he must have, and the same is true for the cow. Except when pasture is g.ood, a portion of the cow's provender should, consist of grain or rich concentrates, and if she is yicltling a large amount of milk, i.e., worhing extra hard, all grain should be ground or crushed. The dry cow doing little work can subsist on lcss-carerully prepared food, and all or most may be in the form of roughage. In feeding, the aim should be to supph as mncli rough age as the cow will readily, consume, and tu this add sufficient grain or concentrates to keep the digestible matter up to the1 standard .set by the! scientists.—Henry.

SECRETS' WEIRD EXITS. SOME CURIOUS INCIDENTS, WITH A WARNING TO THOSE WHOSE TONGUES RUN FREE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 15 May 1914

SECRETS' WEIRD EXITS. some cunious incidents, with a warning to those whose tongues RUN FItEE. "Men aro as bad as women for gossiping in public places," said the head of a Bill iter. Street firm tho other day. He was sore, and justly so, for, owing to careless gossip, he had just lost a large sum of money. Two members of the firm, while lunching at a City restaurant, had discussed between themselves tho de tails ol" a big transaction in which the firm was engaged, and a third man at the next, table had over heard what they were saying. Act ing promptly on the information, he had bought the shares, and net ted all the profit. A certain magnate with large in terests in South Africa, had a visit from his brother-in-law, who talked excitedly of ;i new gold discovery. "Don't talk so loudly," cautioned the other, for he knew' that his ty pist was in tile next room. . JJut the mischief was done.

FOOTBALL DISTRICT COMPETITION. At Minyip on Tuesday delegates mot to arrange the district competition for a trophy given by Mr. W. Niewand, there being present:—Messrs. A. Dreher (Minyip), G. Cromie (Rupan yup), B. Glasson (Warracknabeal), and G. Grigg (Murtoa). Mr. G. Baxter was appointed secretary to the dele gates. Last year's rules were adopted, excepting that clubs were empowered to engage district umpires if they were mutually agreeable instead of League umpires. The definition of a bona fide player was left to the delegates to de cide. Rule 18 was altered so- that where a player declined to make a declaration of his bona fides the match would bo awarded to the opposing team. As Minyip was engaged fortnightly in the main-line competition, it was agreed that there be two rounds played. Nothing of a debatable nature cropped up, and the meeting proved very har monious. The following is the draw, matches to be played on the ground of the first-named club:— June 3—Murtoa v. Warrack...

THE FARM. LUCERNE THE WONDERFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 15 May 1914

THE FARM. i LUCERNE THE WONDERFUL. K. D. Coburn writes, iu the course of an article in the "Aational Land and Irrigation Journal," (U.S.A.) : —The man who, in these days aays his land v.-i 11 not produce lucerne, a plant that will grow pretty much everywhere el.se, casts a severe re flection, not only on himself, Hit on his land, hie locality, and his State. To say that "any fool can grow lucerne" is misleading, but with fair treatment, under fairly favourable conditions, it is bringing good for tune to thousands of th.se wh 1 know it best and use a fair intelli gence in their dealings with it. Among its fundamental requirements is a fairly fertile soil, free from wend seeds, in good tilth, with a surface painstakingly fined, levelled, and smoothed. There is little dilTercuce between successful lucerne growing and the successful growing of other ctoi>s. Poor farming never brings big crons. nor will poor land produce as large yields as the more fertile. Failure to leave in the soi...

FEDERAL ISSUES. THE COMING FRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 15 May 1914

FEDERAL ISSUES. THE COMING FRAY. On Wedn?sdiy ever for', the long drawn out debate on Mr. Fisher's censure motion came to an end, and the division was taken. The expected happened. Ministers were acquitted on the casting vote of the speaker, and, so far as Mr. Cook and his colleagues can shape events, the House of Repre tatives is entering on the last vital act in a curious Parliamentary drama. Kow long the Senate may chose 10 protract its part in thai act, what attitude the Governor-General will assume when the aciuai climax is reached, it is usless to surmise. The outstanding fact is, that there may be a double dissolution in a very few weeks, and for such a happen ing Liberal forces must be ready. ! It is prudent then to forecast, as j accurately as may be, on what grounds the battle is likely to be fought. The task is not a difficult one. The question of electoral Reform will play a com paratively small part; a proposal to introduce preferential and proportionate voting might ar...

Longest Aerial Cableway. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

Longest Aerial Cableway. h A remarkable aerial cablewny, about 75. miles long", is soon to be builfc across the . mountain barriers separating the famous Vale of Kasjh mir, in the Indian native State of Kashmir, . from the plains of the Punjab. It will be by far the long est cable way in the world, says a consular report on this subject ; the longest at present being one of twenty-two miles in Argentina. The plan of constructing an ordinary railway into Kashmir lias been pro nounced hn practicable on account of the loose conglomerate jiature of the soil' in this part of the Hima layas, which.causes innumerable slips and the falling of huge boulders into Kashmir, extending about '200 miles between Rawalpindi-and Srin agar, was only built with tho great est difficulty, and with much loss of life duo to slips; while its mainte nance costs the Kashmir Govern ment about £100 a mile per annum, chiefly spent in repairing slips and bridges.

Wages in South Africa. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

Wages in South Africa. o South Africa is perpetually faced with the problem of keeping its 170,000 coloured workers in order. The whito miners naturally dislike tho native labourers, because -their presence tends to keep down the rate of wages. j For somo time it has been an understood thiiuj between mnsters 1 and men in tho Transvaal that na tives should not compete with whites in occupations that demand skilled labour. No black was therefore al lowed to become an engineer, car penter, stonemason, or bricklayer. Gradually the door is being opened, and tho Transvaal whites feel that they will shortly be forced to work on the same footing as the native, just as fellow-whites in the Capo Province already do. At present in tho Transvaal a whito minor receives about i^l per day of eight hours, whilst the native gots less than £1 per week, and is made to work more hours. No coloured man is allowed to hold a blasting certificate, although many of ther/i could do the work aa efllcieutly as...

ARMY SLANG. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

ARMY SLANG. There is morn slang, among ^oldiers than oil" would find nt all the schools in England. Porno amusing examples were given by Corporal T'. I/. King, of tho 2nd Life (tiiards, in the Household Brigade Magazine." A "Tom Clarke" is a swab, and it also a kiss. Ilcncc one may hear a soldier refer to "Tom Clarking his straight missus." which means kiss ing his protective bride. Nobody knows who the original Tom Clako was. "A touch of the Lawrence" means a fit of laziness. A penny worth of bread and cheese is known as a "rimer" for some, in scrutable reason, and tea is "dirty 'ot." itfeat is "saddle flap." To "put half a gauge on" any thing is to do work for a man for sixpence, which may havo some con nection witli the fact that a half gallon can is known as "half a gauge." j A man wearing a mulller is in "burglar order," and is open to the question, " here nre the ferrets V" If anyone lias an unpleasant sur prise he "drops about seventeen holes."

GIGANTIC FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

GIGANTIC FISH. Tho year 1913 will long bo re membered among salmon anglers as that in which the biggest salmon caught in a Scottish river for 28 years was landed. The fish, which was caught In the Tweed towards the ond of tho year, scaled 551b. four hours after being landed, and is the heaviest taken from that river sinco 1886,. "when, ono of 57$lb. was caught by Mr. Fryor from the Duke of Roxburghe's water. If1 the recently-landed fish ;had been weighod * imniodiatoly,;nftorc capture; it. is estimated' that the fish: would have .attained close upon • '571b., for the-.longer such a-fish remains out" of the water the lighter it becomes. -At all events, the Scotch 55-poun der was the largest rod-killed sal mon of the Tweed since 1886, al though it should be pointed out that a salmon weighing 581b. was also taken in the Alton River, Norway. Anglers tell many thrilling stories of the. struggles they have to land a 401b. or 501b. salmon, but it' must be tame sport compared with tuna-fish...

A DUELLING ACTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

A DUELLING ACTOR. James Quin, who died on Jan uary 21, 1776, -was a fine actor, a popular man on the stago, and a popular man in his retirement at Bath, where ho ruled the social board, even as Beau Nash ruled tho ceremonies of tho Pump Room. That ho was anything but of a peaceable disposition his duelling record shows. On ono occasion, during a performance of "Onto," a slip was made by an actor named Williams, whereupon Quia slipped iu an impromptu gag-line. Williams, greatly upset, waited to intercept Quin as he went to his lodgings. The latter, seeing a drawn sword in tho hand of Williams, promptly drew his own weapon, ,and, defending himself coolly against a rash at ■ tack, ran the unfortunate follow* • through the body, killing him 011 the spot. Quia surrendered himself at once to justice, and tho fact that ho was the person attacked, and that I10 only defended himself from a man who sought his lifo, carried suf ficient weight to lead to a verdict of "Manslaughter," which In th...

SENATE PRE-ELECTION. THE CHOSEN SIX. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

SENATE PRE-ELECTION. THE CHOSEN SIX. Some fifty thousand Liberal electors have decreed that Senaior McColl, Messrs. Edgar, Hume Cook, McLean, Trenwilh, and Mauger shall be the candidates of their party should a double dissolution be granted and a Senate election be necessary. The choice is a sound one. There were timid folk who feared that whatever section of the parly happened to be numerically strongest in the leagues would force "lis ticket," and endanger Liberal solidarity. If there was any danger of that happening timely warn ings were heeded, for the six selected are representative, not of any one winr, but of the whole army which confronts Labor. As to the individual calibre of the six pre-elected, little need be said. Five of them have fought many well contested battles, and are old Parlia mentarians who will certainly not err through ignorance of any point in the game. The sixth, Mr. McLean, though he has not occupied a seal in either State of Federal Parliaments, is the so...

SHOULD WIVES OBEY THEIR HUSBANDS? [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 22 May 1914

SHOULD WIVES OBEY THEIR HUSBANDS? This is a question that one would im agine offered but two unqualified an swers, and yet, in the May number of " Everylady's Journal," just out, we find upwards of a dozen prominent people expressing various opinions on the sub ject. And they are people of widely different station and nrofession. Men as lar apart as ivir uernnra u uowa, the well-known Australian poet, and Mr. Paris Nesbit K.C. ; men so closely associated—by their laughter—as Harry Lauder and Sir Alexander Peacock; and stage favorites like Miss Ada Reeve and Miss Daisy Jerome, all differ more or less on this important topic. Even champions of Women's Rights like Miss Vida Goldstein and Miss Adela Pankhurst are not quite at one about it. Harry Lauder—the famous Scotch comedian, who is at present visiting Australia—looked very serious as he said, " But women won't obey if they don't want to 1 No not even if they have promised in twenty marriage services."
