WOMAN'S STRENGTH. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
WOMAN'S STRENGTH. * Woman gains nothing by striving to become more like man. Her crowning beauty is to be truly wo manly. It is that in her which men love above all else. To be a man-is to 'be a grand, a noble thing, but to ,be a woman is to be God's best gift to man, without whom his strength is useless and his wisdom a failure. Some calves can be safely put on clear separator milk when a 'week old, and others cannot ,before they are a month old.
OPPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
OPPOSITION. The reason discouragement is so hard for a young man is because he has not a wide experience of life. Older men know that opposition, and even failure, do not end hope. They know that "a certain amount of op position is a great help to the man; kites rise against and not with the wind."

VALUE OF POLITENESS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
VALUE OF POLITENESS. Politeness is one's most valuable asset, 'both financially and socially. It costs nothing, and profits much; it makes the one who practises it happy as well as the one receiving it. Everyone should show marked politeness. to their elders. Especially polite children are loved and noticed by everyone, while no one cares for rude, impolite children. Everyone should practise politeness, as it will do more to better the world than any one thing; in fact, it covers everything. To be a good Christian one has to be polite. A rude, impolite man or woman cannot have much influence. We all enjoy going into a nice polite home. We love to be associated ,with such people. If all would practise politeness more we would be hap pier, and I am sure we could make our friends and associates happier. Parents should ibegin with their children while they are small, and not only .teach them, but should prac tise it themselves, for after a child has formed habits it is very hard to chan...
HOW TO MILK A COW. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
HOW TO MILK A COW. Milking (says a writer in "Farm and Home") is an art, accomplished only by patience and practice. To be a good milker one thing essential is a sweet temper, as one has not to mind if he or she does get a swish in the eye with a long tail. When I get a new cow to milk, the first thing I do is to get to know the position in which she likes to stand during 'the process. This done, half the difficulty is over. When I ap proach her I always speak and put my stool down quietly. If thrown down it is likely to upset her and cause her to be restless all through. I now clean the udder from all dust; if covered with ,much, as is often the case 'when going out to grass, I wash tthoroughly and dry. Cleanliness at this stage saves many a complaint from the dairy. The best milker can not get good results from tainted milk. I now take the .two front teats together, and milk very easily for a time, and likewise the two back .ones, except in the case of a cow with three teats, then...
ARE YOU IN A RUT? [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
ARE YOU IN A RUT? Some of us find ourselves settled in a rut. We have made lit for our selves, and continued in it, with cir cumstance as a co-worker. But we find, after frequent effort, that we cannot climb out. Finally, we lose all am'bition to do so, notwithstand ing that we know the change is a most needful one, and that we should be once again upon the level. there to have a broader view, a clearer vision, room to act, and renewed ambition. So let us not get into ruts.
TRUE ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
TRUE ECONOMY. Economy is not going without the thing we need when we have the money to buy it. Economy is not keeping a good thing on the top shelf and using a poor one because it will do. Economy is making the most of what we have, and getting things that will help us to do better as fast as we earn the money to buy them.

A BUSINESS MAN'S CREED. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
A BUSINESS MAN'S CREED. A business man's creed has been formulated in which it is set out: To base my expectations of reward on a solid foundation of service ren dered; to be willing to pay the price of success in honest effort. To look upon my work as opportunity, to be seized with joy and made the most of, and not as painful drudgery to be re luctantly endured. within myself, in -my own brain, my own ambition, .my own courage and determination. To expect d!lficulties, and force my way through them; to turn hard experience into capital for future struggles.

PATIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
PATIENCE. Patience with one's imperfec tions, in the sense of not becoming so discouraged as to give up trying, is virtue. If one vwill look at it so, new days are given us for new lives. It is not 'what we were yesterday, after all, that concerns us; it is what we are now in thought and deed. To think ewe are so bad it 'is not 'worth trying any more is as foolish as to act, as some do, as if we needed not to be any better. Be patient towards your friends. Some men are slow to see in good things. They :want to do right, but it takes them a good while to deter mine what is required of them. Every member of the party of Christ is not an eye. To get out of patience with these dull ones will not help .them 'or you. Give them time and they will do their duty.. We all have our in firmities. Let us bear with each other. To Ibe patient you must have pa tience. The stream cannot flow if the fountain is dry. The fruit will not grow without the tree. Resolutions, alone, against impatience w'il...
A Finger-Print Story. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
A Finger-Print Story. Speaking before the Justices Asso ciation in the Royal Sodiety's House, Inspector Childs related a. remarkable story respecting finger-prints. - "A man, intending to break into a house," le said, "climbed over the gate, and, standing with his toes on a steel bar inside, slipped and flTl. He was wear ing a ring on the left little finger. The gate was protected by sharp iron" spikes, and in clutching at the top to break his fall one of the spikes got under the ring. He was unable to re lease his finger, and the weight of his body tore his finger off, leaving it with the ring impaled on the spike. le then got back over the gate and lecamped. A potice-constable, l:i go ing his rounds to try the locks, was startled to see the finger and the ring in the gate. He took them away, and it Scotland Yard, where a print of the finger was taken, a search through the recbrds established the identity of the man, who 'was shortly after wards arrested. He had his finger fix ed u...
PLAYING THE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
PLAYING THE MAN. Whether we regard life as a Sane leading to a dead wall-a mere bag's end, as the French would say--or whether wve think of it as a vestibule or gymnasium, where we wait our turn and prepare our faculties for some more noble destiny; whether we thunder in a pulpit, or pule in little atheistic poetry-books about its vanity and brevity; whether we look justly for years of health and vigor, or are about to mount into a bath chair, as a step towards the hearse; in each and all of these views and situations there is but one cnclusion possible: that a man .should stop his ears against paralysing terror, and run the race that is set before him with a single mind.-R. L. Stevenson.
LICK FOR SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
LICK FOR SHEEP. Sheep should have access to a lick of salt, as it aids the assimila tion of food, and has a salutary effect upon many parasites. A good lick is made of:-101b. Liverpool salt, 41b. sulphate of iron, and 51b. of lime. The iron is a good blood tonic. The lime may make good any deficiency of that material -in the pastures, and is often very beneficial to young growing sheep. Such a lick prevents that unnatural appetite in sheep which sometimes takes the: form of eating dried 'poisoned rabbits and other decaying animal tissues. It should the covered from the rains. An excess of salt -may interfere with nu trition by causing sheep to drink too much water, which may lead- to a waste of the albumenoids of the feed.
BREEDING ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
BREEDING ERRORS. A few camnimon errors which the sheep-farmer should avoid are the following: The choice of unsuitable country; the choice of unsuitable &lt;breeds; over stockilig; the purchase of mixed non descript ewes; the use of cross-bred rams; placing too much dependence upon the natural pastures; failure to cull drastically. An observance of the above princi ples -would prevent many initial er rors, and place the lamb and mutton trade upon a more stable basis, which would be to the rdvantage of the ,farmer, the pastoralist, and the State.
DOES SHEARING LAMBS PAY? [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
DOES SHEARING LAMBS PAY? The keen demand which has pre vailed all througgh the wool season, and, as a matter of fact, for several seasons past, for lambs' wool, and the excellent prices- which rule for this description, should be a conclu sive answer to the question so often asked: Does 'it pay to shear lambs? It certainly does pay, and the trade would readily absorb a much larger quantity of lamlbs' 'wool 'were it available. As a matter of fact, wool users are grumbling over the falling off in the volume of this description, which is no doubt attributed to the high shearing rates. High as shear ing rates and labor costs are, how? ever, it pays to shear lambs, and take reasonable care in presenting it to buyers. It. should be classed, where there is a fair-sized lot, in firsts, sec onds and thirds. This is no very dif ficult matter, the main consideration in sorting being length and condition. A fair length is desirable. Short lambs' wool has ,been selling with little irregularity a...
PURCHASING EWES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
PURCHASING EWES. Of merino ewes the farmer has many to choose from. The small man is always at a 'disadvantage in purchasing small lots. The pastoral 1st prefers to sell in large drafts. Of cross-bred ewes the supply is limited. A few breeders have considered it advisable to cater for this trade, but so far the supply is not equal to the demand. This means that such ewes are commanding high prices. Of comeback ewes there is also a limit ed supply. Of nondescripts there are far too many, and these should be strenuously avoided. The ewes pur chased should be all of one class, and preferably of one age and ear mark. Small mixed lots from dealers or saleyards always -prove unsatis factory, as the wool from such is so mixed as to command but the low est prices, and the progeny lacks that uniformity so necessary to command the best figures under the hammer.
WOMAN'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
WOMAN'S WORK. The average husband seldom gets both himself and his wife into cor rect perspective; he usually comes out a larger than life size; and his wife a little smaller. It is this that makes him believe that ke is an abso tule essential in any circumstance that concerns his wife. It is the pro tective 'instinct overdone. A sparate holiday is a thing every wife dreams about, but she refrains from mentioning it, because-and this is the secret-she does not think her husband has common-sense enough not to feel injured at the pro posal. lMany a husband seems to think that she can, on occasion, ,be her own pilot. It rather twinges his dignity to think of her acting entire ly on her own initiative. Even the most affectionate husband is often something of a despot in home life. He chokes her self-expression by thinking for her, planning for her, and deciding for her. Can you wonder, then, that she should dream dreams of 'being en tirely herself for a fortnight-or a month? To think fo...
Rather Muddled [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 20 February 1914
Rather Muddled -How great questions will find their way into the most sequcstered nooks was forcibly brought home' recently during a week-end in a Warwick shire village. The local Liberal Asso oiation wvas in great distress at the loss of a former follower, the bailiff of tile squire, but it found solace in the reason he gave for his defection. "I'm in ,favor of this 'ere 'Traffic' Reform," he said, "for I've seen them three motors tearing along across the conimon at sich a pace that a body's life ain't safe ,when he tries to cross the road. Talk of your Free :Trade gimme 'Traffic' Reform." The Prddigal Son: Well, dad, I'm back again. Are you going to -kill the fatted calf? Unsympathetic Father: No, I will not kill you. But. I'll put you to work and train some of the fat off you.
