WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 April 1914
WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. Empires have fallen before the wiles of woman. Rome sang of the achievements of Antony. Antony look ed into the eyes of Cleopatra and laid down honor and life. Louis XV. dallied with the Pompa dour and Du Barry until his kingdom tottered. The royal roue died and left his grandson and heir a heritage of death. Mary Stuart played at love with many men until she lost her throne and at last her head. These women have been the lure that led men to destruction. They _ baffled scientists and sociologists. By all the rules of the game they should have been wholly creatures of evil. Some were, but that others of them were warm-hearted, impulsive and be witching to good and had people alike is a puzzle to alienists. When face to face with the lives of these wreckers of the world, scientists hold up -their hands, shake their heads and say: "We cannot tell you about it-may be some day we can, but not now; it is too much to expect us ...

MANURES FOR _WHEAT. ALL THE PROFITS. HOW TO GET THEM. By A. H. Renard. Expert in Modern Agriculture. Author of "A.B.C. of Rational Manur ing" and "A.B.C. of Scientific Stock Feeding." Every farmer is interested in get ting the largest income in the year and in getting it with the minimum of worry and anxiety. To make money it is necessary to spend money, as every farmer knows. Something of value cannot be got for nothing in these modern times. Every farmer has certain unavoidable expenses to meet-cost of seed, fallowing, inter est on value of land, living expenses, cost of labor, etc.-and he has to get his return from a limited area of land within a limited time. Let him com mit to memory the following axioms of successful manuring of wheat and work in close accord with their teach ings; then everything will go right with him. Wheat Manuring Axioms. 1. Citrate soluble phosphate is the only natural form of soluble and available phosphoric acid. 2. Phosphoric acid extracted by the cro...

"Here," he said, "is something for the one you will catch this evening with that V-neck and those skimpy skirts. Good afternoon."
WRITTEN IN RINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 April 1914
WRITTEN IN RINKLES. Nothing is more damaging to beauty in woman than worry. The worrying woman invites the hand of time to write plenty of wrinkles on her brow, and round her eyes and mouth; to tint her face yellow, and give dullness td the eye that no artifice can brighten. Worrying, moreover, is quite unneces sary, and is a total waste of energy which could be employed in doing something useful. Everyone knows the worrying woman the moment they see her. Her character is written in l r face in wrinkles which apparently nothing short of a miracle could ob literate.

The Great Montamor By ALICE 3.. DIEHL, kuthoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER XXIII. Galling Bonds. Strangely enough, when her belov ed, the betrothed husband whose marriage with her at the rural parish church had been roughly interrupted by the woman of whom he said, "I married my cousin Gwendolen-she is my wife," Netta was relieved, con soled, rather than overwhelmed. In these crises of life, memory is as vividly awakened as all the other mental faculties. Netta remembered that for fifteen long years her Robert had been dead to his old surround ings and every human soul they en vironed. She recollected that so long a desertion of any wife would go far to break the tie in the case of any man. - She reasoned, in a flash, that all was not lost. The law might help her-and her beloved. "But supposing you did marry her, dearest, you deserted her! If she chooses, she can set you free-at ease, I understood the marriage laws freed a woman from a husband who had deserted her only a few...
FEEDING ON ENSILAGE. PERIOD AFTER PUTTING UP. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 April 1914
FEEDING ON ENSILAGE. I PERIOD AFTER PUTTING UP. How long after ensilage is put up can it be utilised for feeding? is thus answered by a practical 1 man:-Feeding from the silo may commence about a week after it has been filled, or it may be post poned indefinately. Onless an ample amount of ensilage is put up it is better to feed green maize directly from the field as long as it lasts than to begin feeding im mediately from the silo. The average quantity to feed is from thirty to forty-five lb, of ensilage a day to each cow. This means that an acre of land yielding twelve tons of green maize vili supply the average ration of en silage for seven months to three animals. The amount of green maize from per acre ranges from eight to twenty two tons. The ensilage should always be fed after milking. If fed before it is apt to give the milk a taste. It is also important that no ensilage is left lying around in the mangers. "Ensilage is one of the best milk producing foods that can be fed to...
