ADVANTAGES OF A LIFE PLAN [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
ADVANTAGES OF A LIFE PLAN It pays to have a life plan. Such a plan unifies our life; it organises our days; It binds our hours together in one harmonious whole; it gives meaning, value and direction to our lives. No man Is apt to arrive or to achieve success unless he has a fair ly distinct notion of where he wishes to go and what he wants to do. There are some meaningless people whom you could accurately call hu man derelicts. They drift, and, like everything else that drifts, they drift down stream. There Is a very great difference between the men who "wait and see what will happen and men who make tilings happen in such a way that they will contribute to the lealisation of their life plan. The first kind o( man is a failure; a miserable failure. The second kind of man is a suc cess; a splendid success. The one dilferentiatlng thing between an Ig noble and a noble life is the having a purpose, pursuing an ideal, journey ing towards a goal. The man who regulates his life by momenta...
PRODUCTION OF FAT LAMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
PRODUCTION OF FAT LAMBS. Ill Ihe production of fat lambs it gencr. 'y follows that the larger the propo:iion of the blood of the Eng lish breeds in the sire and dam, when bred upon suitable lines, the better from a mutton point of view and the worse from a standpoint of wool. The reverse Is the case when there Is a preponderance of well-bred merino blood; there is a falling-off in the size of carcase and early maturing characteristics, and a corresponding increase in the character aiul quan tity of wool. A judicious combination of these desirable characteristics should be aimed at, with various modifications to be decided by the farmer after gauging the possibilities of Ms coun try. This desirable combination should not be neglected in the breed ing of ewes. As regards their progeny, early maturity and quality of carcase are of greater importance, especially v.heii the conditions invariably allow of their disposal as sucking lambs. When the conditions are not so stnble and the proge...
LIGHTNING CURES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
LIGHTNING CURES. There is an old saying to the effect that "faith will either kill or cure," and it would som to apply to lightning also. Certainly it is a remedy which nobody could he persuaded to try vol untarily, but there are many cases on record where permanent benefit has ibeen derived from being struck by lightning—that is, subjected to Na ture's own electrical treatment. A telegraph employe in Germany who was .manipulating his instruments during a severe thunderstorm was seen to fall at the very instant that a lightning flash of intense vividness oc curred. At first he was thought to have been killed Instantly, but it was afterwards found that he was still alive, although he was both senseless and paralysed. In this state he re mained about twenty-four hours, and then recovered completely. Strangely enough, prior to the lightning stroke he was in very indifferent health, but since that apparent catastrophe his health had been more robust than ever before In his life. A simil...
Condition of Breeding Sow. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
Condition of Breeding Sow. I Pigs to brood well should not ho too fat. It is the aim of successful brooders of swine to keep iheir ani mals in a medium condition, neither too fat nor too thin. A sow that is too fat will be less prolific and will make a poorer mother than n thin sow. The fat animal is likely to roll oil her piss, and the pips from these sows are apt to bo small and weakly. Do not breed sows "until they are 10 or 12 months old, and then keep them in medium flesh, and they will do better than if too fat. Proper food and special care and at tention arc necessary to raise good i pigs.
THE VALUE OF INSECT STUDY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
THE VALUE OF INSECT STUDY. By becoming acquainted . with the habits of Insects and methods of their control, the farmer and fruit-grower will be able to save the greater part of the thousands of pounds sterling that are lo-it. every year through ihelr presence, and by wise legislation to make such laws in regard to the ile Etruction of the pests, or the preser vation of 'the useful insects, as will be to the best Interests of not only the present, but the future genera tion. The importance of recognising dim- friends among the insects should not ibe lost sight of, as some insects are very beneficial in Keeping in check others of nil injurious nature.
RE-WORKING OLD FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
RE-WORKING OLD FRUIT TREES. The latter part or January is the best time to bud to better varieties all poor or worthless varieties of fruit trees found growing in the orchard. Be sure that the buds to be used are taken from trees 'which have borne fruit of the very best quality. Insert them on the outer or underneath side of the limbs, where it will be found that the bark usually raises more easily than on the upper side, and where they are more apt to form a xvell-shapen tree than where the buds have been Inserted on the upper or inner side of such limbs.
FARM IMPLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
FARM IMPLEMENTS. On getting a new implement alwayB see that the hearings are working smoothly, and that they are kept well oiled, as if once allowed to run hot they 'will not work so well after wards, and will probably wear quick er. All repairs required should be put in hand as soon as possible after the season's work ft finished, so that the implement is ready for use when noxt required. If put aside some little de tail that requires attention is prob ably forgotten, and loss of time re sults. The best time to" get the drill put in order Is immediately the grain sowing is finished. It is then ready for rape sowing. The same -with the binder. Any repairs to the canvasses or reel—and these frequently require attention—should be done the firBt available opportunity after the -ma chine is drawn into the shed. And this brings to mind a point which re quires attention. Never allow a bind er to remnin from under cover a mo ment longer than can be helped. Ex posure to weather does more to...
SEED WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
SEED WHEAT. Begin early to assure next year's harvest—'plough deep, save the mois ture, scatter the manure. The farmer who lias never used a seed-grader should get one as soon as possible, so as to get "well acquaint ed with It before the busy season comes. It Is not bad practice to treat the wheat seed to a liquid spraying of formalin. It will prevent the smut damage. Build silos and grow acres of maize and lucerne, and utilise the whole crop In Its best form. After all, real science in farming, just as in everything else, means no thing more than knowing things. Without the knowledge there can be no science. Get the best seed wheat obtainable io sow this autumn. Look around for a while before you decide on the seed you plant. The better Jhe seed vou sow the better will be your wheat crop. It pays to plant the plumper berries. Grade your wheat. The farmer who is satisfied with mixed seed is on a par with the dairyman who keeps pure-bred and low-grade cows in Ills herd and expects a...
HAM AND BACON CURING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
HAM AND BACON CURING. j A pig that is to lie killed should be ltept without food tor 12 or IS hours. Every effort should be made to get every drop of blood out of the body, otherwise the carcase will not cure so well. The pis Is then Immersed .11 nearly boiling water. The proper tempera ture of the water is very important. If either too hot or too cold the luiir will not come off freely. A good old fashioned plan to try the temperature is to let a fo\^ drops of the pig's blood drop into the water; 'If it spreads all over the surface the temperature is right. Leave the pig in the water until the hair comes off freely. Pigs are not easily lifted out of the water, especially when liot, and it is a good plan to erect a block overhead, so as to facilitate this operation. The pig should now be vigorously scraped with a blunt Instrument. There is nothing better for the purpose than the lid of an old billy. When the hair la all removed, the skin should be wet! dried. The internals are re mo...
HAPHAZARD POULTRY BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
HAPHAZARD F-OULTRY BREEDING. The haphazard method of breed ing is still in vogue on many farms. The eggs selected for hatching are chosen because they are of good size, shape and color, irrespective of whether they are laid by the best or worst layers. In the present state of farming one cannot afford to adopt loose methods. If the farmer gave as much thought, to poultry breeding as ho dons to his farm crop he would invariably find his pullets great pro fit-makers. On many iarms the chick ens are reared for «he sake of the pullets: cockerels are a secondary consideration, although usually equal to the pullets as regards numbers. The farmer wants eggs—plenty of them—and "when eggs are dearest. He must hatch so that the pullets lay right through the winter; they can afford to have a rest In summer and will come again in autumn, a time of higher prices. Now. wo cannot ob tain all of these advantages by hatch ing haphazard and from a flock of mongrels. The farmer must have a breeding pe...
WOMAN'S LOOP IN AIR A WHIRLING DELIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
WOMAN'S LOOP IN AIR "A WIIIKL1XG DELIGHT" The ilrst woman to loop the loop in the air (says "The Dally Mall" of January 2) Is Miss Trehawke DavU»tf, who experienced this thrilling sensa tion yesterday as a passenger with Mr Gustav Ilamel at Ifendon Aero drome. Miss Trehawke Davlen is also the llrst passenger to loop the loop in England. In looping tht* loop the airman as cends to a considerable height ami 'lives vertically for some distance, then suddenly bringing his machine hack to the horizontal and forcing its nose upward until the pilot is upside down. The machine then completes the circle and returns to its normal position after a further dive. Del ore taking up Miss Trehawke i>avies Mr Ilamel looped the loop -•evyn times to test his machine—an h.p. Mora ne-Sau In ier monoplane. Thou, with Miss Pavics, he climbed io a height of over 1000ft, and described a perfect loop, descending about :t00 ft. At the top of the second loop the machine began to plane down on its back, but ...
IN VOLCANO'S CRATER PHOTOGRAPHER'S ADVENTURE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
IN VOLCANO'S CRATER PHOTOGRAPHER'S ADVENTURE With two thousand feet ot photo graphs of the very bowels of Vesuvius In his travelling: bag, Mr Frederick BurUnghnm arrived In London yes terday (says "The Daily News and | Leader" of January 2). Four days before Christmas he climbed down Into the heart of the burning mountain, and at a depth of 1200ft. (or nearly a quarter of a mile) stayed for twenty minutes to lake a series of moving pictures. At any j moment he and his two Italian conf- j panlons might have been burnt to cinders or blown to atoms. CONTRAST IN TWO DESCENTS Only once before has the cratcr been explored to such a depth. Last year Prof. Malladra. of the Vesuvius Ob servatory. made the pioneer descent, but ho made It under carefully-chosen conditions, and with ideal equipment, and nearly all his photographic plates were ruined by chemical action. Mr Burlingham had I-Iobson's choice In the matter of conditions, could not procure oven one serviceable rope, took down with hi...
COCOANUT GROWING PROFITABLE ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
COCOANUT GROWING PROFITABLE ENTERPRISE. During the past few years (says "The Daily Telegraph") the constantly-rifling price of the products of the cocoanut palm tree has not only attracted the at tention of tropical planters engaged in the production of the nuts and manu facturers In Europe and America who employ cocoanut-oll,. or coir, in their industries, but also interested financiers desirous of finding new outlets for capital. The advance In prices have been phe nominal. A very few years ago copra —that is, dried kernels of the cocoanut from which the oil is obtained—could be bought at from £10 to £12 per ton. The market quotations yesterday for the same article were from £30/15/ to £32 18/9 per ton, an Increase of nearly 300 per cent. In about ten years. The causes of this remarkable Inflation are not far to seek. It Is simply due to the fact that the production of cocoa nuts is insufficient to keep pace with the world's demands. Cocoanut oil has long been in use for the manuf...
WOMAN OF TOMORROW IMMEDIATE FUTURE OF FEMINISM [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 March 1914
WOMAN OF TOMORROW IMMEDIATE FUTUKE OK FEMINISM (By tl, M. Swunwick in "The Daily News and Leader.") There is 0110 thing one would like feminism to do at once, and that is to change its name to humanism. The great change, which has been coming over the humanist movement of late and which has been increasing tho velocity of the movement no that one feels It will in the near future sweep in all humanity, is that it is becoming a working women's movement. It is turning women who never worked be fore into workers, and It Is touching the greyest lives of toiling mothers with warmth and light. In England, the movement began in the middle classes, and some of the most effective stimu lus was at first given by men. It how receives its velocity and mass maiui> from women, and these masses are tho working women. , Humanism is a far wider creed than a merely political one. It luis Its roots In social necessity, and, deeper still, in ethical and religious Right. It is based on tho psychologic...

Jack Bowles and | Freddy Bywatcr. Mat Michel, deep ! in Hie morning paper, which dealt 1 wiili the meaner things of life, added j little to t'le argument though he heard 1 much of it.

Freddy put it to the philosopher. .Mat said that he had not the least idea. It was left for Jack Bowles, In an inter val of mastication, to tell them that Hugh's car liail been ordered, and thai he lound the fact significant. "A man who sticks In a ear when he might be playing golf should be seen to by a doctor," he remarked: and then, as though this were the greater concern: "I'...

"The boy was her son; 1 wilj not see her again.'
