SUMMER FODDER CROPS. ADVICE TO IRRIGATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

SUMMER FODDER CROPS. ADVICE TO IRRIGATORS. With the object of assiting settlers in irrigation areas in the cultivation of summer fodder crops the Agricultural department has issued a bulletin dealing with the subject. In an article contri buted by Mr. Temple, chief field officer, is contained advice as to the character of the crops that should be grown and the conditions under which cultivation should take place. lie has stated that it is not absolutely necessary to have graded land for irrigation, though it is always an advantage in securing a more even distribution of water; but with a canvas hose and lift-pumps fairly large areas can be watered and success is sured during a dry spell. Small pad docks, however, are essential, as stock should not be put on land being irri gated, and a few weeks' spell to the different crops leads to a greatly in creased fodder supply and carrying capacity. Seeding operations under the conditions specified can be followed well into January, though i...

TURF TOPICS [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

TURF TOPICS (By "Flemington.")' People have not yet ceased to talk of De Gama, who distinguished himself by winning three races at the Mel bourne Cup meeting. It is generally agreed that De Gama was extremely fortunate in not having to carry more than 8st. 131b. to finish up with. Han dicappers do not always take such a lenient view of winning form. Most horses have to pay far more dearly for success. It is plain that the weight adjuster quite failed to properly esti mate Do Gama with the result that the New Zealandet won his last race a good deal easier than his first. Do Gama must have improved as the meeting went on, as he won the Final Handicap with a good deal in hand. Apart from his series of successes, Do Gama has also recently been in the limelight in another way. The V.A.T.C. has decided that the horse is not to race at Caulfield again. No reason is given for the rejection of De Gama's entry, nor is the club bound to give a reason; but there is an impression that the action...

WASHED WHILE YOU WAIT. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

WASHED WHILE YOU WAIT. In one of the large hospitals of Ame rica there is a waiting room where pa tients sit until room or wards are as signed to them, and where visitors sit waiting their turns to visit friends or relatives who are sick there. One morning a boy stuok his head in the doorway and shouted: "Mr. Andersonl" Two nmon started up. One stepped forward quickly and followed the boy and the other dropped back into his seat. The boy led Mr. Anderson to a small room on the third floor and Anderson went in. Two doctors ware there, surrounded by all sorts of terri hying apparatus. "Anderson?" asked one of the doc tors. "Yes, sir." "Come here and have your stomach washed out." "But," protested Anderson wildly, "I don't want my stomach washed out." "That's what they all say I" retorted the doctor. "Grab him I" And they took Anderson, shoved him into a chair, and in a twinkling had a stomach pump in him. After the operation the doctor looked sternly at the wilted and shivering Anders...

THE SWORD OF PEACE. WHY GERMAN MILITARISM MUST FALL. CIVILISATION'S INTOLERABLE BURDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

THE SWORD OF PEACE. WHIIY GERMAN MILITARISM MUST FALL. CIVILISATION'S INTOLERABLE BURDEN. (By H. G. Wells, in the London ''Daily News and Leader.") At last the intolerable tension is over and Europe is at war. The mon strous vanity that was begotten by the easy victories of '70 and '71 has challenged the world, and Germany pre pares to reap the harvest Bismarck sowed. That trampling, drilling fool ery' in the heart-of Europe, that has arrested civilisation and darkened the hopes of mankind for forty years, Ger man Imperialism, German militarism, has struck its inevitable blow. The victory of Germany will mean the per manent enthronement of the War God over all human affairs. The defeat of Germany may open the way to disar mtament and peace throughout the earth. To those who love peace there can be no other hope in the present c'onflict than the defeat, the utter discrediting, of the German legend, the ending for good and all of the blood and iron super stition, of Krupp, flag waggin...

IS THE KAISER SANE? [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

IS THE KAISER SANE? "'The Secret History of the Court of Berlin," by a Lady-in-waiting, edited by Henry W. Fischer, has been pub lished. Let it be granted, as Euclid used to say, that the present Kaiser is uidersized, deformed, afflicted with hereditary disease, lavish and niggard ly by turns, restless, unreasonable, sel fish, insanely vain, and resembling in almost every particular his relatives who have died madl That clears the ground a little. This lady-in-waiting (who had to accept the position, after losing her fortune, at a court where formerly she had been "'welcomed as friend and companion") makes all the foregoing suggestions about the Kaiser after studying hiin daily, and at close quarters, for years. Her book, with its promising sub-title, '"The Private Lives of William II. and his Consort," ran through several editions on its first ap pearance 10 years ago, and has at the present crisis been rushed into the mar ket again in a cheap form The lapse of time has -discredite...

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

,FOR WOMEN (By "Ambrosine") There is one person in Germany that one must feel very sorry for, and she is the wife of the Crown Prince. The Crown Princess Cecile is of Russian de scent, and with. no great love for the Germans. She is the daughter of the Grand Duchess Anastasia of Russia. Such a pretty, smart, woman, too, who upset the pink-flannelette-wearing Ger mall fraus by insisting on getting all her trosseau (of the cobwebbiest and bmost lovely description) in Paris. Her mother, the Duchess Anastasia, who married the Grand Duke Frederic of Mrecklenburg, is a lady of so lively and spirited a disposition, that she shocked the stodgy traditions of the Prussian Court to such a degree the Kaiser gave her to understand that her presence at the Court was not desired. From that moment relations between the Crown Prince and his domineering father grew strained, and he and his daring Prin cess openly flouted the authority of their august papa to such an extent that the world-wide known b...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

M HELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent.) The raids of the military authorities under the Trading with the Enemy Act, do not seem to have been taken without warrant. It is quite plain from the little that has been revealed that there is a danger of Australia being made a aource of sutpply, through round-about avenues, of course, of some of the things the enemy needs. Another fact demonstrated by the raids is that we :1e aiwakoning, if slowly, to the neces sity for taking the war more seriously and realising more fully the menace that lies in leaving all sorts of facili ties open for the many agents of the enemy who are in our midst and who find material for amusement as well as profit in our childlike trust. The action of the authorities natur ally gives stimulus to the fabricators of the rumors that are always rife. The imorbid-minded who derive some re markable sort of pleasure from promul gating scare storics are always ready to avail themselves of any incident cal cul...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

OF RURAL iNT7?EREST (By "Rusticus.") There cannot be too many means of guarding against droughts, and the building up of varieties of wheat that .will give results with a minimul of moisture is one of the best of them. The possibilities that lie in this direction are indicated by results reported from the Mallee. A :.a...i: of new wheat was received in Melbourne last week, grown by Mr. II. .1. Cox, of Sea Lake. The sample is of the variety known as "Federation,"' andl the quality has created general surprise, for the grain is of exceptionally good color, fairly plump, and contains all the attributes that go to make up good milling wheat. The grower has written to say that the crop from which this sample was taken is yielding ten bushels to the acre, and as evidence of the drought;resisting propensities of the variety, it is stated that this district had less than one inch of rain. Some of the crops in the dis trict are yielding 15 bushels to the acre, and the pleasing feature to the...
