A POTTERY FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
A POTTERY FAIR. At the present time, Germany is far ahead of England in the matter of ad vertising pottery manufactures. Buy ers from all parts of the world, and especially from the United States, re pair every year to the great pottery exhllbition at the Leipzig kair, and.each ,l tlhese annual fairs, it is-estimated, leads to the sale of a million-and ;a half pounds worth of German ware. German exports of pottery to the Uni ted btaites are at the present time double those from Great Britain. But signs are not lacking that English munutaoLturers are .waking up to their behond-hand methiods, and the North Stattordshire potarerie have so far roal ised the value of such exhibtiions as the Leipzig Fair, as to inaugurate an annual iair of British Upottery and glass manufactures, the first to be hleli at Stoke, next month. Thle Stafford siire manufacturers maintain that since the days of Wedgwood, their pot tery has been as good as, if not better thain, any in the world... They main tam t...

OUT OF EMPTY AIR. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
OUT OF EMPTY AIR. M3 -terious showers of animals and othcr :.organisms from the empty air have occtrred at variolus tlntes, through all theil. ages. The latest is a shower of small tish which occurred in Quir indi,. N.S.W., on the 13th of last noutth, speoimens collected for investi gation proved to be freshwater "hardy head," or species of small fish common to the Murray and Bogan watersheds. Mlany similar instances are recorded in whien the showers consisted of frogs, worms, fish, "blood," snails, bread and .other substances or creatures. Once a small turtlu was found as the nucleus of a hailstorm IA shower of new hay which fell from a heavy black cloud happened-in Ireland in 1875. A *F'r'nich nmteorologist, 31. Poltior, states that he once saw a multitude of small toads descend to the carth. They fell on his hat and hands, and the ground was covered with them. In 1833, near Naples, a whirwind passed over an orange grove and the result was an unexpeoted free distribution of fruitp...
SULPHUR AS A FERTILISER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
SULPHUR AS A- FERTILISER. Esxperiments carried out both in Ger many and in France confirm recent r ports as to the fertilising action of flow ers of sulphur upon the soil. In the German trials a dressing of 90 lb per acre, applied in February, a short time before the crops were .sown, had a beneficial effect upon barley and rye. The treated portions of: the crops were stronger, and had a brighter green co lor than the untreated; but no account of the difference in yield is given. The French experiments were intended to throw light upon the cause of the fer tilising action of sulphur. The causo has been said to be the.destruction of injurious bacteria in the soil, and the conclusion of the investigators: agrees that this is partl~. the case. But it is c~oncluded also that the chemical action of the sulphur has some effect. Sul phuric acid is gradually formed, and this not only suphes sulphur to the` plants, but also helps, to dissolve mineral ele ments in the soil.
Tallarook [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
Tallarook (By our Special Correspondent.) This picturesque little town, situated on the main railway line to Melbourne, is one of the cleanest towns it has been my pleasure to visit for many years. Having tra velled far and wide during the last decade I can confidently assert that I have not seen a cleaner street no, not even in Adelaide-than the one that divides .the town. It i. well made, and is free from'dust and holes. It is certainly a credit to the town, and the residents have every reason to be proud of it. The footpaths are also in a good state of repair, and were clean and tidy at the time of my visit. From the streets I made my way into the hotel yards, and found they were in accord with the road and footpaths -everything being neat and trim and pleasing to look at. The two massive brick hotels are, indeed, a credit to the enterprise of those gentlemen who conduct them. Alto gether the residents have every peason to be proud of the town in which their lot is cast, and I.ha...

FESTIVE PRISONER. D)INNERII WITH DETECTIVES. it was close on midnight when three festive gentlemen left a fashionable restaurant in Paris and stumbled into ;a taxi. "\Whcre to?" asked-the chauf fear; and "Honie" answered the most iestive of the trio. " But where's home'?" insisted the chauffeur. "The Sante," was the reply he received. Now, the Santo rs the prison ot P'aris. The chauffeur thought he was being made fun of, and was preparing to get angry, whden one of the trio the soberest-produced his credentials as detective. To the Sante the mys terious fares were carried, where the doors opened hospitably to receive them. " - The trio, it turned out, were simply a prisoner nanmed Franchomme and the two detectives specially detailed for his supervision.

Chittick, J.P., who conducted the inquiry. Deceased was the ...
THE MARGARINE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
THE MARGARINE TRADE. A\ sub-leader-in the Lofidon "Grocer" of recelit date says :-Theo chilly ween thor will sel:rve to remind grocers tha~t the margarine trade should now receive their special attention, and that they ought to make a determined effort to do iore of'it. This tirade must miot become thle monopoly of the few. Some good work was accomplished last win ter by family grocers in developing their margarine trade, and still more is pos sible during the coming months. 'Thel morle margarine the grocers are able to sell, the less can multiple-shop firms at ford to out prices of tet and butter. A lhuge turnover in margarine enables them to do that, and to spoil two of the grocers' best lines. Nearly all of thuse firms concentrate on the double weight margarines at lt / or 116 per lb: and ai good lnumber of private firnms having branch shops are vigorously puslhing dosible overweight, whilst many hiaily grocers have been agreolbly sur prised at the growth of their trade in this q...

DEMAND FOR FRUIT IN EUROPE P'rofessor Wiokson, of the UniVersity of California, who has recently returned from an official visit to the Old World says there is no hope of the old coun tries evecr producing suffioiont fruit for their own requirements. Coming from. an irresponsible -writer, such ' statement. might be. regladed as ex iravagant, but the reputaion of Pro lessor \Wickson as author oT'. standard work on fruit-growing and Editor of the Pacifio Rural:Press is too high for a statement of his to be passed lightly by. In an editorial note, hlie expres ses his satisfaction at finding on his return that the fruit industry in his own state is still buoyant, and goe on to say:--"This impresses us all the more after '.eeing how short the old countries and'this country east of the rooky mountains ardi of their needs in proclucing-fruit locally and in the hope of ever doing it. We did not see fruit enough to satisfy a mongoose in all our travels. If the critic says we were too early i...

Shooting. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
Shooting. Just now the "Knights of the Trigger" are having a good time of it. What with live birds, dead birds and target firing, their time is fairly well occupied, and as a consequence they are developing into first class marksmen. On Wednesday last, Mr M'In tosh and Mr P. Nelson, members of the Sevmour Gun club, took part in a /10 starling contest at Long ford. There were many competitors and the competition was keen and exciting throughout. At Long wood the Sepmour representatives found some "foemen worthy of their steel," and considering all things they upheld the credit of our town. Nelson, who was in good form, carried two nominations up to the dividing line, while his companion (M'Intosh) well sup ported him by brlngifig one to the same converging point. However, in the final shooc off, F. Tubb, of Longwood, disp'ayed his powers as a marksman with a break of 29, which he shot on the first barrel, thus winning the prize. Mr M'In tosh got a run of 15 from the first shot, and i...
WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 March 1914
WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosine."') The bizarro in dress threatens to be much to the fore this season, says a Paris expert. ,Already we see signs of the evil in the newest and smartest models as seen in this city. Hendgear in the form of skull caps with towering aigrettes. skirts with an exaggcerated split frlom the feet, and bodices of day "owns cut so low as to be almost de 'olleto; and fur stoles t~wisted about the form, and muffs are the size of pillows. At one shop I saw a walking gown in white velvet trimmed withl Ibands of eable. Is not this the last word ini exiravagance? Now. I am no Puritan as regards dress, hilt I think that every woman should suit hlr costume to her circmnstances. Bi zarre dress has charms, but it must be given its surrounding. An outre gown cr hat which looks well when worn by a smlart womaln in a motor, seems out of place on a middlo-aged matron, or ;hern sworn by a young wIife who keeps no malid and tra-els by omnibus. And the tight slkirt and hugo h...
