ANTICIPATE DISEASES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

ANTICIPATE DISEASES. This is the season when the poultry house and poultry yard should be cleaned carefully. Mites and other insects, as a rule, are active- at this time., Nature makes them prolific, and resistant against repellants, so that they may propagate their spe cies' to perpetuate themselves, j It will pay to go over the poultry' yard and clean every nook and cor ner. Cut the weeds, burn the trash, rake oil of the rubbish. | "The Interior of the poultry house should be cleaned and the walls sprayed. Use a strong insecticide and a fungicide. , See that the perches are sprayed and disinfected. • It is worth while to white-wash the inside and paint the outside of the poultry house. This will preserve the building, making it last longer, and twill afford considerable insurance against insects and disease. It may help you eradicate disease germs and insects.

Dookie District Experiences. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

Dookie District Experiences.   Our Dookie correspondent   writes:-- The warmest day for the summer season was felt in Dookie on Tuesday last, when the thermometer registered 109 degrees. A strong northerly   wind made residents very uneasy and about five o'clock a heavy thunder-storm passed over the town carrying wth it clouds of dust. A sharp shower quickly settled the dust and the condi- tions became much cooler. At Dookie north, the storm was much more severe as trees were blown down, and in cases roofs of outbuildings were carried to adjacent paddocks. A very heavy fall of rain occurred, the spouts not being able to carry the water. At Nalinga and Stewarton the conditions were practically the same. Instances of fences and haystacks being blown down   were reported. The rainfall here was very heavy, the spouts over flowing. Dams and tanks were replenished, which will prove a boon to farmers. Numbers of late crops have suffered i...

COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 8 January 1914

COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. . There are certain people in the world whom the more you think of the less you think of them. Surely it isn't extraordinary to get pearls out of a matchbox. Lots of girls have got diamonds out of mugs before now. According to a Paris paper, "Seventy per cent, of the French people live in one room." But it must be a jolly big room. A Russian dwarf of 4ft. has, w« learn, fallen in love with a St. Peters burg lady of 6ft. 2in. That's not fall ing in love—that's climbing up to it. "It is rare indeed," says a contem porary, "that a householder can get a shock from his electrical installa tion." He generally' gets that when the bill' comes along.

Purer than we judge we should— We Bhould love each other better. If we only understood. Could we judge all deeds by motivse, See the good and bad within. Often we should love the sinner. All the while we loathe the ain. Could we know the powers working To overthrow integrity. We should judge each other'a errors With more patient charity. ^ If we knew the care and trials, Knew the effort all in vain, Aud the bitter disappointment, j Understood the loss and gain; Would the grim external roughneea Seem, I wonder, just the same?

It was soon made known that the huge corruga ted iron tank, containing' 3000 gal lons of water and erected on piles sonic twenty feet liad collapsed. The strong winds of late have had the effect of gradually. weakening the braces which .supported the piles, aiul on Sunday; when "a" strong wes terly wind was ragihg.: the sti'uettura gave way. Immediately adjoining the Wjndniiil and tank is a" brick storeroom, where a quantity of wines spirits cigars and cigarettes, to the Value of £200 had been stored.

Country, electors will be much puzzle^ to differentiate, between them;' In his pronouncement of the Ministry's policy Mr. Watt certainly made a strong bid for the support of the* rural consti tuencies. For one thing, it is proposed to give earnest consid eration to the problem of the best methods of improving the means of production, and hand ling of wheat. Only lasfyear the report of. the Royal Commission appointed to deal with that mat ter was laid before Parliament, and the .Watt1- Administration was strongly urged to give effect to at least, some of its proposals. Early consideration was prom ised, but the session came to a closc without anything having been done. Victoria is, admittedly, a great wheat-produ cin...
