WOMAN'S DREAM OF HER FATHER. VISION THAT CHANGED A WILL. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
WOMAN'S DREAM. OF HER FATHER. VISION THAT CHANGED A WILL. A wealthy woman who was said to hlave altered her will because of a dream in which her father appeared to her figured in a case heard in the London Probate Court last month. SThe woman was the late Mi[me. Emma Josephineo Pilet, of Vine House, Park road, Surbiton, who inherited £4000 a year from her father, M. Daniel Nichr olas Niool,. formerly proprieaor of the Cafe ioyal, Regent street. M. Nicol made a fortune of about £300,000. Mine. Pilet made a will leaving her propeity to H. Pilet, but afterwards. signed a codicil leaving to her children by a previous marriage £3000 a year and to M. Pilot £1000 a year. M. Pilot contested the codicil, and alleged undue influence on the part of Mine Nicol, Mme. Pilet's mother. Mr Burn, a solioitor, said Mine. Pilet before making the codicil, tG!,l him of a strange dream she had--that her father-spoke to her, saying "You ought not to leave all this money away from your children." The result...
THE TRIUMPH OF MARGARINE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
THE TIJUIMIPH OF MABGARINE. The seriousness to the cdlonial far nmer of the increasilg substitution of margarino for butter is made clear in a lotteir from Mr H. Campbell Jones, in "The Times,"' Mr Jones emplhansis es the success of the manufacturers in eliminating' the distinctive taste of mgaringare. Only yesterday, margar ilro was regarded as an unpleasant art iole of diet, eaten only by the poor. It was pleasant neither to the palate nor the eye. But the chemist in the employ of tho manufacturer has work ed so skilfuliy that to-day oven ex perts were deceived. The average man will assert confidently that he cannot eat margarine, and that it could not be palmed off on him, but it is quite probable that he eats it frequently, without recognising it. An Australian butter expert who recently visited a margarine faotory w"as-astonished to inid tlhat the- product of animal fats and cocoanut was not at all unpleasant, and that even his skill in sampling but ter could not detect.it from...
SULPHUR AND POTATO BLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
SULPHUR AND POTATO BLIGHT. During the past two seasons (says the Mark Lane Express) experiments have been directed to the difficult ques tion of finding some means of freeing contaminated land from the potato blight. Various applications were trlied, such as an extra application of suporphosphate, an extra applioation of sulphate of potash, and of muriate o1 potash. In one plot each tuber-was planted in a handful of wet sawdust, and another plot received flowers ot sulphur at the rate of 61 cwt per acro. Th'e best result was obtained with the sulphur, where not only was the am cunt of disease reduced to less than one-lhalf- oi that in the untreated plots, but.the total yield was higher than in any other case. This result confirms previous experiments carried out at Clifden, whioh have always shown that sulphur added to the soil increases the yield of potatoes and diminishes the attack of scab. Similar results have been obtained by workers elsewhere as regards the increase oh crop wi...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
.OF RURAL INITEREST (By "lRusticus.") Yet another contribution to the sLem ingly oldless discussion of bitter pit in apples has been made available in the second report by Mr. D. M'Alpine, who was iappoinlted by the Federal Go vernment and the Government of Vic toriato investigate the disease. In it Mr. McAlpine discusses the theory that bittei: pit is caused by poison, such as spraying with arsenical compounds,o and gives evidence in support. The true cause, he thinks, lies in the fluctuating conditions of temperature and lhunid ity, wrhich plroduce irregularities:in the transpiration, and, in the case of the growing apple, derangement also of the vasculanr network. It is a functional disturbance of portions of the tissue, as in the case of cancer, and not the wholesale shrivelling, drying and with ering due to the failure of" the supply of writer to the apple as a whole or its withdra-wal. Mr. M'Alpino.adds t.hat cold storage experiments have conclus ively proved that if apples ar...

VEGETABLE GARDEN. IKeep the surface continually loose, hoo out all weeds, mulch when-neces siary, and give abundant supplies of waterl to growing plants. Manure and dig over all vacant plots for succession crops; plant out seed lings of cabbage, celery, cauliflower, let tue&, &e, and plant seeds of iabbago, c:uliflower, turnip, and leek. , Tui watering at this time-of tihe year, a better result will be obtained if an occasional overhead spraying is given. A planting of potatoes Inmay be made for ans autumn crop. Tomato plants should be well watered and manured, and all stlrong growing laterals should be pinched out.
BEEF AND BUTTERFAT. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
BEEF AND BUTTERFAT. Probably nothing, says a well-known agricultural writer, would induce the grazier of fattening cattle to transfer his attention to dairying, but the pro ductive capacity of a well-selected cow is miucl greater than that of a well bred steer, and more can be made off grass by combining the two. The aver iage dairy cow produces about 500 gal lons of milk annually, yielding 12½ per cent. or 6251b of fat, sugar, oasein, and nlih, practically all of which is di gestible. It would be a good steer thiat would increase 5001b in live weight in the course of a grass season, and only about 60. per cent. or 300lb. of that amount would be beef, the value of which as a food has further to be discounted by its bone content. The value of 500 gallons of milk at 6d per gallon comes to £12110/, while 500ib. of live weight in a steer at 30/ would be £7/10/. It would take as much grass to produce one result as the other. But the dairyman is nmore concerncd with thie store value of an...

TURF TOPICS. (By "Flemington.") Whether Woorak is destined to devc lop into Derby material is quite anuther matter. It is not always tlhe best two year-old who furnishics into the lad ing tllree-year-oll. But time will set lo this question. In any case tlhero is no need to discuss it just now. As expected, after his St. Leger viC tory, lHadnor went tlhiough the V .RC. meeting without defeat. The little Earlston colt won all his races like a truo racehorse. It ntay be that he had had quite enovgh of it by the time the winning post was reached in tile Chanm pios Race, but he is all grit, and it is quiote poaslsble Lewis could have got a little more out of tile colt had le needed it.. Rladnor is one of tlhose easy goiig customers wh6o do all that is a:skcd.of thicmn without any fuss, and youllng ones of this charuacter generally 'ttrain on." It seems a certainty now that Radnor will be seen at his best at the A.J.O. meeting, when lie wrill have to take on Beragoon in the St. Leger. One...

Bowls. Seymour Wins the Premiership. During the last week the nervous tenn perament of the Seymour bowles has oeen stretched to its utmost tension, in preparing for the great contest which was looming in the distance, and at which every bowler was expected to'"do his duty" or die in the attempt. On Mlonday and Tuesday evenings they put ,n the filishing touches, and when prac tice ceased on Tuesday evening they were as lit as it was possible to make them, and eager and ready for the com ing struggle on the following day. There was no wavering or flinching. Each manl felt confident within himself that he was atihis best,and would to his best, be the result what it may. They knew they had to meet a champion team, therefore to show the white feather would only be counting disaster. The match was against Shcpparton, who held premier honors, and was play ed at Tatura.

Avenel. From our own Correspondent. The contract for ereting the new Re freshment rooms on the Race course has been let to Mr Forbes, who will com mence the work forthwith in order that the building will be ready for the next meeting on April 21st. The Public Hall has had a thorough renovation externally. The walls have been plastered-and *the effect leaves a very pleasing appearance. Altogether a nice piece of work has been completed, and the completion of same is a credit to the contractors, Messra Sparks. Another pleasing feature in the beauti fication of the town is the "touchiog up" work on the exterior of the Catholic Chairch, a contract for which has just, been completed. The building now looks as if it had teen newly erected, and as young as it did when built 22 years ago. This is also a sample of the handiwork of Spark Bros., and is a speaking illustration of their prowess as tradesmen.
