8TH. DUDLEY V. NTH. WONTHAGGI. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
STH. DUDLEY V. NTH. WONTHAGGI. The above match, which eventuated on the South Dudley wicket on Satur day last, resulted in a very easy vic tory for ths home team on the first innings by 102 runs. This achieve ment was mainly due to the splendid batting of Reg. Mungovan, W. Fern, and G. Beare, and the deadly bowling of Feme, who captured six wickets for 16 runs -a highly creditable perfor mance ; while Len. Wallace .accounted for 3.wickets for 17 runs. Mungovan played a splendid innings and vividly showed that he had struck his old form. Included in his well put together total of 44 runs wera seven 4's. Downes, another consistent bat, made 32 by fauHless cricket, and W. Feme, in his usually reliable style, very soon put together 23. Following are the scores SOUTH DUDLEY.

SECRETION OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
SECRETION OF MILK. It docs not appear to be known why one. animal gives more milk than an other. Physiologists have made many ? researches-with the object of determin ing what governs the secretion of milk. It is evident that neither feeding nor digestive capacity are the secret.. It is probable that a substance ? is secret ed in the body somewhere, possibly by aomo part of the reproductive organs, that circulates with tho blood. This substance, whatever it may be, stimu lates the udder glands to produce milk. The amount of this substance which they will produce is hereditary, al though influenced to some degree by tho feed' and other conditions. One way to add to next year's in come is to study out and master some of the things you do not now . under stand'. That's is tho easiest way, for it means progress all along the line.
POTATO MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
POTATO MANURES. For potatoes a fertiliser rich in pot ash is essential. For general purposes a goocl mixed fertiliser for this crop should consist of-Available phosphoric acid, 7 per cent.; pqtash, 11 per cent.; nitrogen, 3 per cent.; at the rate of 700 lbs. to the acre. Sulphate of potash is mostly employ ed as a sourcc of j)otash for potatoes. Muriate of potash is said to give even better results than the former. Dried blood contains, on an average, 11 to 13 per cent, of nitrogen, but is less soluble than sulphate of ammonia uml nitrate of soda. Manures, con taining sulphate of ammonia should not bo mixed with lime, nor applied to land which has been recently limed. "Before we were married, Henry," said the young wife reproachfully, "you always gave me the most beau tiful presents. Do you remember?" "Sure," said Henry, cheerfully; "but, my dear, did you ever hear of a fisherman giving bait to a fish after he had caught it "
GOVERNMENT COOL STORES, VICTORIA DOCK, MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
GOVERNMENT COOL STORES, VICTORIA DOCK, MELBOURNE. (By E. Crowe, Exports Superintendent, in "Journal of Agriculture.") The new Government Cool Stores, Victoria Dock, Melbourne, are in many respects unique, as they differ materi ally from all other freezing works. Most places of this kind are built to suit the requirements of somo special class of business, and nearly all the freezing works in Australasia have been planned to cater for tho wants of the meat ox port trade, whilst these storos have been constructed to meet the particular neods of the trade conducted by the Victorian Department of Agriculture. The handling and freeing of butter for export form a leading feature of tho business. Meat comes next in point of importance; thon follow poultry, rab bitB and hares;.and fruit is also provid ed for. On the 14th November, 1914, there were stored in the new works 110,397 packages of perishable produce, repre senting a value of about £150,000. ALREADY FULLY JUSTIFIED. Had the stores ...
THE LADY OF THE GREY EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 16 April 1915
THE LADY OF THE GREY EYES. I laid down the magazine and drew a sheet of paper from my despatch ease. Of course, what I had in inind to do was sheer foolishness and sentimental ity, but-my tent suddenly seemed in describably bare, the rampart of moun tains 1 could see through the opening was desolate and very far away from the old laud aud the old associations; and the story in that magazine I had picked up by chance when I was last in any outpost of civilisation, made me see things. Oh! not rats, or snakes, oor unpleas ant monstrosities, but English lanes in spring, aiul copses whero daffodils bent their heads to the March breeze that blew across the hills; and a garden sweet with Juno roses. When 1 sh.it my eyes I could almost smell them, almost feel I was in the dear old country again; and because the story made me feel these things and see them I drew out paper and envelope and addressed a letter to the story's unknown writer. ."

INTENSIVE FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 23 April 1915
INTENSIVE FARMING." Alter the conclusion of the war it is quite probable that England will ob tain a mucli larger proportion of her food supplies from the outlying parts of the Empire. This means that the various British colonies and Dominions may feel assured of a prosperous mar ket for their products, and, as a con sequence, need experience no diili dence in growing what may bo required tor consumption in the United King dom. Even at the present time, and previous to the outbreak of war, there was a greater demand in England ior certain products llian Australia could supply, and while such conditions pre vail, people on the land in this part of the world can complain of no lack of opportunity. So keen has been the demand for meat for sonic years pu-.t that herds and ilocks in Australasia have been ait'orded no opportunity ol appreciably increasing, inasmuch as a great deal of the stock that ought to hav0 been reserved lor breeding pur poses has been' slaughtered for export. As add...
BULLS—NOT IRISH. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 23 April 1915
BULLS-NOT .IBJ.SH. Jt was a yeotswomau who said that J the butcher of her lowu only killed ; half a boast at a time. It was a British magistrate who. be ing told by a vagabond that lie was not' married, responded: "That's a good thing for your wife." It was a Frenchman who, contentedly, laying liis head upon a large stone jar for .a pillow, replied to one who in cjuis'yl ill'it-was not rather hard: "Not. at all, for I have stulled it with hay."
THE GROWING OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 23 April 1915
THE GROWING OF WHEAT. j A strenuous* eil'ort ivill doubtless lie ' made this your to increase tlio area J planted with wheat. A shortage Ot aiiy commodity is invariably followeu by a period of prolusion, but this i" not always- a wise condition to prevail. -Regularity of supplies, wliere the wea ther is an important factor, cannot al ways by maintained, and it is perhap but natural that a time of abundance should iollow a season of diininisheu production. Xo matter how favor able the weather may be from now until the garnering of next crop, there is not likely to be a prolusion of wheat to the extent that will entail an abso lute slump in prices. The countries that arc at present engaged in war will not be in a position to grow adequate supplies for next year, and the allied nations will require additions to the quantities that they themselves pro duce. The prospect of a slump is not, therefore imminent, and everything in dicates that rates will remain high. Farmers generally will r...
GREAT BRITAIN AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 23 April 1915
GREAT BRITAIN AND THE WAR.] i When the present war began sneer ing references were made to what writ ers termed "British Decadence.7' These statements were prompted more by malice and envy than by a careful con sideration of the conditions, and so far as the war has gone, the part play ed L>y decadent England must have como something of a surprise to many of the enemy. li be.ug unprepared for a struggle were an indication oi decay, then there might have been some justification for the sneers of the Teutons; but what has been achieved during the six months shows how virile is the race that was supposed to belong to a past age. The provision that has been madi\ for the enrolment and main tenance of three million soldiers by Great Britain is an effective refutal oi tiio German slander. Great Britain aud her possesions are as capable oi conducting a war to-day as the mother v.;>unt:y over was. What tile British .N'avy has acocmpiishcd for the Allies needs no recapitulation. The ex...
BONE MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 23 April 1915
BONE MANURES. There lias been a disposition on the part of agricultural analysts and pro fessors to depreciate tho fertilising valuo of dissolved bone manures, and to express the opinion that mixtures of superphosphate of lime with a little sulphate of ammonia or other nitrogen ous material could be depended on to produce equally good results at a less cost. Greater experience, however, lias ?shown that the old-fashioned prefer ence of many fanners, practical and in telligent men, for a bone manure is not without its justification. A greater knowledge of *the action of bacteria teachcs us that these useful organisms ilourish best when there is a supply "of organic substances in the soiJ, and it is this organic character of bone manures which makes them more valuable than simple mineral compounds. A pure dis solved bone fertiliser, in which the bone material has only been partly dissolved by acid, or a. bone compound manure containing a considerable proportion of the bone structure s...
A TRIP IN A SUBMARINE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 23 April 1915
A TRIP IN A SUB MARINE. Of-.all llie many sorts and conditions of craft embraced in the navy of a lirst-class Power the submarino is the smallest and least aggressive looking. There are many people who urge that submarine craft should not be a fight ing unit at all, not because of any fear ful power she possesses of involving an enemy in frightful catastrophe, but that life in her, leaving war entirely out of the question, is unnatural and pregnant with an ever-present sense of | droad and foreboding.. This feeling is j in the marrow of every submarinist, though, there is^no braver body of- men j iu the wide world.' However, these amphibious croations of limii's geilius exist, and we have to nialce the best of them, singularly j enough against our better judgment as a nation, for the Lords of Admiralty for a time would not hear of their adoption till they were virtually forced to toe the line by the submarine activity of Germany,.. Prance and America. These craft might be all that w...

TIME IS THE TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 23 April 1915
TIME IS THE TEST. The test of time is what tells the tale. "A new broom sweeps clean," but will it "wear well" is what in terests most. The public soon find out when misrepresentations are made, and merit alone will stand the test of time. People appreciate merit, and years ago local people publicly en dorsed Doan's Backache Kidney Pills; they do so still. Would a man make the statement which follows unless convinced that the article was just as represented? A cure that lasts is the. kind that every sufferer from kid ney ills is looking for. Mr. E. Dobell, Bootmaker, Main street, Korumburra, says:-"Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are a wonderful remedy for backache. For some time was troubled with a kind of muscular rheumatism in the small of my back. It caused me great agony when I was working, especially when I bent my back. I was not always in pain, but I would get a bad attack which would sometimes last a week. One day, when I wes very bad, I sent to Brown's Pharmacy for a bottle c...
TWO AMONGST MANY. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 23 April 1915
TWO AMONGST MANY. The following letters will interest many of our readers: From Mr. 11. Jewell, 65 Richmond Ter race, Richmond, Vic. "Some months ago one of my kidneys i/as severely bruised by a fall of rock whilst working'on the sewerage contract, r.nd I was .laid up and helpless for several weeks. The pain I suffered was excru ciating. I could not eat or sleep, and became very weak and despondent; more especially wnen the doctors who were at tending me failed to do me ally good, and only made matters worse by telling a:e that I should never be able to do any laborious work again. I was so bad that four doctors were in attendance upon me. Failing to get relief from medical men, I at last decided to try if Warner's Sale Cure would benefit me. 1 little thought that it would restore me to health, but it did so in a very short time. 1 took in all about seven bottlesful of the mcdicine, when I was up and back at my work again on the sewerage contract, .which is r.o light work for the st...

Inverloch. At a meeting of the Progress Association recently Mr J. Dixon presided on the absence of the president, Mr Ullithorne, win, however, attended later. Various matters were considered and action will be taken to secure improve ments. The Country Roads Board and Wonthaggi Borough council have been written, to to push on with the metalling of the second, and construction of the third section of the Inverloch road. Mr Ullithorne suggested that a- devia tion be made in the third, section of the road so that it would- come right through the town. He' con sidered that 1 Y» miles would be saved. Other members, pointed out that the main road was surveyed right into the town. Mr Dixon said if representations were made the work might be delayed and they did not w.ant any delay. .-The . Woorayl council will be requested to . pay considerably more attention to Inverloch, and a request has bsen .made to have copies of all plans, etc., of works in the immediate district sent to Inverloch ...

Dalyston. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 23 April 1915
Daly s ton. It is expected that there will be a large attendance of those in terested at a public meeting to be held in the nail on Saturday (to la >rrow) at 3 p m., when con sideration, will be given to plans for .augmenting the hall fund?. It is a 'matter for "regret that the general bxly of members of. the Powlett Agricultural Society do. not display greater interest in its welfare. A special general meeting was called for Saturday, but a quorum was not in attend ance. Eight or nine of the usual enthusiasts, who attend every meeting, and on whom the bulk of the work falls, were at their posts of duty. They inspected the show grounds and discussed a number of improvements in the direction of.tree planting, plough ing the land recently purchased ^ and sowing it with grass. Many Gippsland societies ap pear to -think that they exist for the sole purpose of holding an annual show, but these societies should get a better conception of the reasons for their constitution. There are a ...
