DUCK FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

DUCK FARMING. The following pointers on ducks and duck-breeding should ibe observed: ' There have 'been many failures in duck-farmirg, but the essence of tho cause is in the man. The theory that poultry-raising fur nishes a nice occupation for little 1)oys and girls, old men and women, and In valids, has long since been exploded. There is no more continuous work of a light nature than poultry-farm ing, but you 'will get well repaid for your work. There is a good deal of money in poultry-raising, but it takes a 'big lift to get it out. A poultry-raiser will never Buffer through want of exercise; It is a good medicine for health. Ducks waste rapidly when in tran sit, but their recuperative powers aro equally wonderful. Free range i« unnecessary for duck yards; 25ft. x 101't., well grassed, will carry GO ducks. Duck-yarda should >be laid out so that they can be cultivated. It is a double 'benefit in healthier stock and better results, also rich crops. The habit of scalding duoks or ...

THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. Farmer's wiveB and daughters often wonder why their homes do not look aa attractive as those of their Bisters in town. They say they work twice as hard, and do not have half the chance to have a good time. One very simple thing adds much to the attrac tiveness of the farm home, and that is the presence of flowers. There Is no one who can better af ford to have pretty flowers than the farmer's wife, for she has plenty of land and fertiliser. There are so many pretty hardy plants and shrubs that require little work and that when once started will bloom every season for a long time. There are also many annual varieties that will furnish cut flowers for the interior of the house, such as swcot peas, nasturtlan, pinks, phlox and asters-my favorites. It is a pleasure to give away flowers to the sick, to carry them to the altar of the little church, and, In fact, it seems as if they are never out of place. There is on claBS of people who can have as good a time wi...

NEWSPAPER KINGS. Men Who Fashion History. Struggle for Supremacy. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

NEWSPAPER KINGS. Men Who Fashion History. Struggle for Supremacy. Alfred HarmBworth (now Lord Northcliffe), who first devised per sonal journalism in tabloid form through the medium of "Answers," is, after 20 years, the most influential private public man in the three King doms. Some people are apt to bolt with the idea that success commands success, and that once a man has arrived he can sit down serenely and iortune comes to him cap in hand. I happen to know that there is no harder worked man in England than Lord Northcliffe. Like the aged Em peror of Austria, he is dressed at 5 a.m., and ready to digest every paper that is printed in Loudon and the provinces. Before a majority of his assistants in the many oflices which he commands have had their break fast he calls them up on the telephone to discuss with them what shall be the best story for the following day. "He is a hard taskmaster, but the most stimulating man I know," one of his young lions told me recently. Never a day pa...

Correspondence. THE BOY SCOUTS. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

THE BOY SCOUTS. (TO THE EDITOR.) Sir,-You have kindly mentioned in your columns the reorganisation of the Boy Scouts in this district, and we would like to tresspass on your space again to thank those friends of the j movement who have responded so well ! to the boys' appeal for help financially, j It is against scout rules to continually ask for money, hut the boys' uniforms and the necessary equipment will be a heavy item of expenditure, so that if there are any who have not helped the boys and would like to do so, we would welcome and acknowledge contributions towards the purchase of at least one tent, signalling lamps, first-aid outfit, a working library of scout instruction books, a trek-cart, a bugle, and many other things that are not, perhaps, so necessary as those mentioned above. There is some .£'1 in hand, but the bare necessaries in the way of uniform will cost about £8. The boys will, later, ar range a concert to raise money, but present needs make this appeal neces sar...

Local & General News LISMORE'S WATER PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

! Local & General News LISMORE'S WATER PROBLEM. Apart from householders' tanks and a private bore or two, there is no water available within a radius of about seven miles of Lis mo re except at the bore hole near the creek. Owing to the heavy demands made on this by those who have to cart water for stock and domestic use, and the fact that the windmill is frequently not working, the supply from this source is a very uncer tain one, and people with stock to water find the position a very serious one. The maLter was brought before the Hampden shire Council through the me dium of a joint letter by over 40 resi dents at Monday's meeting. President M'Dowall said he had been approached i personally with respect to the water , supply. He had pointed out that the ' Council had taken all reasonable means ? of supplying water. They had a dam : each side of the township, a reservoir, j and a bore down the creek ; and under | normal conditions this would have been j sufficient. But this...

The Supreme Test. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

The Supreme Test. By A. G. Greenwood. "I'm no Mr. Carnegie meself," con fessed Mrs. Knoyle, my landlady, apol ogetically. She bad asked humbly if I could pay her only a little on account. "An' 'ere's a pipe; p'raps you might find a job in the adver-tise-ments," phe suggested. "Good-night, Mr. Smith." "You're a brick," I said-and she'd been too kind to me to let me feel shamed at my husky voice. "I'll pay somehow-or I'll go. But I'll never forget, Mrs. Knoyle. The thirty shil lings I awe you shall be a first charge on what I earn." Thirty shillings! The sum meas ures things up. The gutter -was very close. For six weeks I'd rehearsed in "The Ruby Girl" without payment walking on in the crowd. The play hud failed. In a week the notices were up. In a fortnight the company -all but the lucky "stars"-were stalking the Strand. I got nothing out of it. But I met Eva-Eva Bradley. She was in the chorus-daughter of a barrister-aa orphan, brought up to idleness. In my pocket lay her last letter...

DIET FOR INDIGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 April 1914

DIET FOR INDIGESTION. No treatment in cases of dyspepsia is likely to have much effect unless the diet is very carefully regulated. .The great thing is to supply the stom Jach with such food as will give it the least amount of work. Roast meat, for example, is preferable to boiled; chicken, game (not too high) and mut ton are more digestible than beef or pork. Vegetables are frequently pro ductive of discomfort, particularly in the form of flatulence. They should either be given up for a time, or taken very sparingly. It will sometimes be found that a fresh salad, dressed with oil and a little vinegar, can be digest ed when cooked vegetables cannot 'be taken. The latter are best served as a puree. If vegetables have to be given up, fruits, such as baked ap* pies, grapes, and oranges should be taken instead. Len.on juice also may be used in water. Bread should be toasted, or taken stale. Pastry, cakes, twice cooked meat, soups, tea and cof' fee (except in the strictest modera« tion) ...

An Eye-Opener. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914

An Eye-Opener. A workman was pushing a loaded truck near a small village iu Bedford shire, -when upon nearing the foot of' a steep hill he was overtaken (by a pedestrian whom the workman ac costed 'with the words, "Here, mate, take hold of this, quick. I've got something in my eye." The walker did so, upon which the workman walked on, and, pulling out his hand kerchief, commenced to wipe his eye, milking great faces and grumbling, a/bout "the confounded thing," and. hoping he would soon get it out. This continued until they reached the top of the hill, when his compan ion asked him what it was he had in his eye. He replied, "That hill." A young girl was going to make her first visit to a cousin in the. country. At the station 6lie was met by the cousin, and after a half-hour's drive he told her they were approach ing his farm. Iu one of the broad fields that met the young lady's attentive eye stood a windmill, and gathered around it were several pigs. "Well, that beats anything I ev...

WHEN IS A COW OLD? [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914

WHEN IS A COW OLD? Provided that a cow has been an exceptional milker in hor prime, she may be worth keeping long after her best days on the chance that she may breed heifers like herself. Although there is no guarantee that a good cow will yield good milk ing heifers, it is certain that a bad cow will not, so the good ones should be kept as long as possible. The ulti mate loss of an old animal is nothing to the possible milk gain from a strain o£ good heifer calves. In an ordinary way a cow should be sold at her ninth or tenth year. She is then passing her top yield in milk, and Is still worth a payable price for beef if in good condition; but there are many exceptions to this rule, and ill health may knock off an animal at any age. There is no reason to be lieve that the calves produced late in life will be inferior, and there is no conclusive evidence that the milk of an old cow is any poorer than that of a'younger one; while if a young bull is used the balance will be kept. The ...
