THE IMPROVEMENT OF FARM STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 10 June 1914

THE IMPROVEMENT OF FARM STOCK. We may take it for granted that every farmer in the colony desires to improve his farm stock, but owing to the calls of every-day work too few have the time to devote to the con« eideration of how it is to be accom plished. The time, however, will be well repaid. To some farmers, in all probability, the plan of improvement" has never seriously presented itself. His stock, he tells himself, is no worse than that of his neighbors—possibly better than that of those around him. The possibility of all-round improve ment is a remote idea not within the bounds of every-day life; so he goes on breeding in £he old happy-go-lucky way, and If a superior calf or two comes he takes them simply as a slice of good luck for which to be thankful.

YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the Bate of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT ib recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have' derived from it before.

A Good Send-off. Mr. Newlygilt (to Mrs. N., who is cultivating society): Well, my dear, and how did you get on at the Ver« de Vere's? Mrs Newlygilt: Well, they were a little cold and stand-offish at first, I thought, but, oh, so nice when I came away. Dont' try to analyse women; love them for what they are. Don't pick them to pieces as you would a toy, for you can never put them together again. Men and women have nothing in common, intellectually, unless they're in love. For company, for straight conversation, for business, for sport, a man would rather be with men. . I have heard of men who would die for a woman, but never of one who would go .without his dinner for her. A married woman says the way to be happy with a husband is to learn to be, trappy without him moat of the time. " Marriage is like the stage scenery; it looks well from a distance. Women should have two great alms in life—trying to he beautiful and succeeding in..being pleasant. . ;
