THE UNDER OOG. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
THE UNDER OOG. Now here is a song of the under dog, The" down under dog in the fight; For though he is down, and he's terribly down, Maybe he's the dog that is right. It isn't the cur who is largest, you know, Whose morals are always the best. And a sanctified, pup with a halo, I trow, Might succumb in a physical test. It might could be right-but it cannot you see, And I think you'll admit it were quaint If a blacksmith must always the best of men be, And a bruiser must pose as a saint. The man who succeeds may succeed as a knave, And in morals be fearfully light, And that's why your sympathy kindly I crave For the weak under dog in the fight. So here is a cheer for the poor under dog; He is not the strongest, but then, It may hap that he's better by far than the dog That chews hiin again and again. His stock may be finer, his loyalty proved, And I think you will hardly demur, When I say that quite often the dog on the top Is the scurviest kind of a cur. And as the rule runs in the ...

THE REVENGE AGENT. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
THE REVENGE AGENT. By C. D. Coppinger in "London Opinion." Kenneth Seaforth was sitting de spondently in an armchair when his man entered the welt-appointed room. "A gentleman to see you, sir," he said. "Didn't I tell you I was not at home to anyone?" asked Kenneth irritably. "Who is it?" "I am not aware," said the servant, "of 'is hidentity. '!£ declined to hac quaint me with 'is name, remarking that 'e preferred to deal direct with you, sir. 'E concluded by hemphasis ing that 'is business was himportant, . 'is precise words bein' that it was of vital consequence." "Oh, tell him to go to the deuce," said Kenneth. "Very good, sir," said the man, mov ing to the door. "No, wait," said Kenneth, changing his mind; "show him in, Curtis, I may as well see what he wants." Curtis went out, and returned in r\ few moments followed by a little sharp-featured man with Quick brown eyes, immaculately dressed and sport ing a large buttonhole. "Mr. Kenneth Seaforth?" he inquir ed, "Yes," said Kenne...
PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. Many devices have come under no tice from time to time to cope with the mice pest in the wheat or hay field. Building the stack upon a raised platform does not answer the purpose; the mice will climb up the blocks up on which the platform is built, run along underneath the platform boards, and so enter the stack. Enclosing the stack, as some farmers do, with lina wire netting, will also 'be found un suitable, as the mice will climb up the wire netting. The only successful method to keep them out is to enclose the stack with a fence of galvanisod iron, either plain or corrugated, about two feet high. Let the iron into the ground to a depth of ofur inches, and place it in a slant ing position, pointing outwards from the stack, all around it, taking care to leave no open space at the cor ners; it will 'be found impossible for mice to enter a stack thus protected.
The Unknown Quantity. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
The Unknown Quantity. "I'll bet. she will,", began the rash youth. , "Don't!" interrupted his older and wiser companion, '"Don't bet that she will ever do anything. You can ? never tell what a woman will do." "But," protested the young man, "I was going to bet that she would do the unexpected." "Don't," repeated the elder earnest ly "Even that is no safe bet." I-Ie who knows how to laugh, when to laugh, and what to laugh at ban achieved a philosophy all his own.
HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. The guiding principle in the appli cation of manures is to use them as supplementary to the natural soil re sources, and not as a main source of fertility. Most good agricultural soils contain vast stores of dormant plant food, and the aim should be to develop as much as possible of this plant food latent in the soil by thorough cultiva tion, supplementing any deficiencies with fertilisers. What those deficien cies are can best be found out by ac tual experiment, and, having deter mined them, the problem for each farmer and orchardist is to ascertain the most profitable and economic way of supplying the soil's needs. In all districts, with a light rainfall, super phosphate is likely to continue the most profitable of all pliosphatic r^au ures. In the wetter areas, however, especially on soils deficient in lime, basic slag, or Thomas' phosphate is 'i valuable adjunct to the production of good crops.
Ordered to the Front. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
Ordered to the Front. Mr. John I-Iassall, whose good stor ies are famous, tells of a retired Array officer who was In his back garden one day when a tramp came around the end of the house. "I've been at the front," he began, "and " The old officer beamed on him as he interrupted to ask: "Have you, my man? And were you wounded?" "No," said the man, "no, sir, not exactly. But I couldn't make no one 'ear, so I come round to the back."
Deafening. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
Deafening. The youth was in danger of drifting into bad courses, when one of the1 noble people who interest themselves in such cases persuaded him to accept employment on a farm. Alas! a week later the lad reappeared in hi3 old haunts. "What, James!" exclaimed his bene factor, reproachfully, "back again? Why didn't you stay on the farm?" "I couldn't stand the country, air," pnswered the bred-and-born gutter snipe. "Too quiet for ye-^eh?" "Quiet, not 'arf; much too noisy," cried James. "Why, crikey, air, it was fair deafenin'. Wot wi' the row of the birds in the dayt.jme. and the noise of the silence at night, T very near went off my 'ead." "Splendid color, isn't it?" asked the fishmonger, cutting open the salmon. "Yes," replied the purchaser, "looks as if it is blushing at the price you ask for it." A man who has his price gives him self away.
A LAKE OF SOAP. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
A LAKE OF SOAP. One of Nature's marvels is to be seen in the north-east corner of the State of Washington. It is a lake ?which hears the name of Soap Lake, and is three miles in length by one mile in breadth. The water in the lake tastes like a mixture of soap and salt, and its peculiar properties are such that when the water is heat ed no soap is required for a bath, for as soon as the water comes in contact with the natural oil of the skin, and is gently rubbed, it forms -i beautiful lather. The only drawback is that whon applied to the head, one's hair is apt to turn from its natural color to a dusty red, if not washed with fresh water. In other words, it bleaches, the soda in the water no doubt be ing the cause of this. The Soap Lake is well known throughout America on account of its wonderful healing properties. In deed, It is asserted that its waters provide a cure for all the ills the flesh is heir to. Rheumatism, skin diseases, stomach and blood disor ders-all seem to give w...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. The champion forgetter has beea discovered among the passengers on Bendigo's trams. A woman strolled in to a waiting-room in, the city, carrying a bag, a baby and wheeling a go-cart. She put them all down, counted thorn, and appeared satisfied. Nothing had been forgotten. Presently a tram came along. It was the one she want* ed to catch. She grabbed the baby and ran for the tram. She took her seat and proceeded some distance be fore she remembered that she had for gotten the bag (with money and a return railway ticket) and the go cart. At the next stop she bounded out, caught a car going back, and was overjoyed to find her bag -and go» cart safe and intact. Then she re membered she had forgotten the baby. She jumped for another car and got safely abroad with her luggage. At the end of the section she found her baby. Hugging the child thankfully to her, and gripping the bag, she hur ried home, to find, 011 arrival there, that she had forgotten the go-cart. She f...
BADLY-DRESSED QUEENS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
BADLY-DRESSED QUEENS. It has been aftea aeeer.od 1/ those who know that scarcely one royal lady in Europe ia really well dressed. Some of the younger royalties wear dreBses too old for their years, and some of the older garb themselves in a fashion that ia too young. The Empress of Germany is the hest-dressed woman on a European throne. Sne does not &lt;buy her dresses in Paris, "but in Berlin, London and Vienna. Counting every item, the Kaiserin spends about .£2000 a year on dress. The Queen of Holland is said to be the worst-dressed sove reign. In spite of this, she manages to spend about twice as much on her clothes as does Queen Mary. The former spends about £4000 a year, whilst the latter spends, on an aver age, about £2000. Queen Wilhelmina ia accused of showing very bad taste in the choice of her frocks and hats. However, she lias some excuse, for in loyalty to her own country she only e ploys Dutch dressmakers, and who ever heard of a noted Dutch modiste? The costume...
WOMEN TO CACKLE 1000 YEARS HENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
WOMEN TO CACKLE 1000 YEARS HENCE. An English scientist has predicted a dire calamity for the woman of a thousand years from now. She will cackle instead of talk! A man of 1313 could not possibly understand a woman or 8013. But man in general will have been slowly accustomed to the change in the course of centurieB, bo that the dreadful catastrophe will not burst upon a society entirely un prepared. I-I. A. Henderson, of London, 1b the sponsor for the dismal forecast. And he biames the modern woman, claim ing that she is paving the way, slow ly but steadily. She is wrecking the vocal cords of her sex by abusing them shamefully. Even now, he says, to overhear any feininines chat at random is to be conscious of a cackle that could give points to the noisest of hen yards. And it is towards that same cackle that the voice of the soft er sex is drifting. A number of different causes are given as responsible for this change. Our soft-voiced mothers and grand mothers did not have to make th...
Patience is a Virtue. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
Patience is a Virtue. If patience is really a virtue there ia a young man in the south-eastern suburbs who ought to wear a full-size halo. Last Thursday night he stood at a street corner and referred to his watch which registered seven o'clock. Just then a girl with a small Covent Gar den on her hat approached. "What a time you have kept me waiting, Maud," said the youth. The girl tossed her head. "It's only just seven," she said, "and I didn't promise to be here till half-past six." The young man smiled. "Yes," he said, "but you've mistaken the day. I've been waiting since last night!"
Not Meant for Eithor. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
Not Meant for Eithor. Many years ago, at a dinner party in Glasgow, there was present a law yer of very sharp practice fond of giving toasts or sentiments. After the. cloth was removed and the bottle had gone around once ar twice, the ladies ?withdrew to the drawing-room-all but one very plain old maid. She remained behind, and as the conversation began to get a, little mas culine our friend of the "long robe" was anxious to get rid of the "old maid," and for this purpose rather prematurely asked the privilege of giving a toast. This being granted, he rose and gave the old toast of "Hon est men and bonnie lasses." fT&lt;he toast was drunk with honor, when the dame, who was sitting next the lawyer, rose from her seat, gave end of her bony linger, and, having said, "That toast neither applies to you nor me," left the room.
BUSINESS COURTSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
BUSINESS COURTSHIP: An amusing case was once decided'" in a Frankfort police court. It ap« pears that a cook, no longer quite young, was cburted by a tailor some what younger than she. On Sun days, and occasionally during the week, the gallant lover was in the habit oi! taking his lady for extended' promenades and visits to restaurants; where the latter always paid the ex penses. She also provided liim re gularly with his supper. Presently, however, the awful truth was brought home to the cook that she was not the only friend on whom the man of tliq scissors and the need le lavished his affections. Nothing loth, she went7to the nearest police1 court, suing the faithless one for all the expenses of the clandestine meal® provided by her, and all tlie money spent when "walking out" with him. The tailor, however, was once again too much for her. Instead of appearing before the tribunal as a repentant sinner, he came nto court with a long bill in his hand, on which was an account of the ...

THE "SACRED CAUSE" OF AGRICULTURE. A High and Noble Calling. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
THE "SACRED CAUSE" OF AGRICULTURE. A High and Noble Calling. ' Agriculture is the only life's job to which the Creator ever directly Bet a man. He put Adam iti the garden of Eden "to dress and keep it." Conse quently, (.lie Mayor of the English town of Windsor was not far wrong certainly he was not guilty of affecta tion-when, in the course of his open ing remarks at the Royal Counties Show the other day, he spoke of "the sacred cause of agriculture." We are not to confine the word "sa cred" to matters that touch upon man's future state merely. Anything that intimately concerns man's pres ent happiness and well-being may be so called. Anything that is high and noble; anything that can be exalted in the conception and the dojug; any thing that conduces to the best in man and the 'best in his surroundings may be called sacred. All this may truly be said of the cultivation of the soil and husbandry at its best. It is not easy for a farmer always to remenvber this. One is not always in ...
BUYING NEW IMPLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914
BUYING NEW IMPLEMENTS. Ia buying new implements or ma chines, every man will 'be guided by "his own experience or fancy. We find one man swearing by a certain make of machine, and the next neighbor by another make1, both claiming that their machine is best, and maybe it is, ac cording to conditions and usage. In considering the various points in fa vor of any machine, one should always take into account the' accessibility of each part. One has often spent an hour or more in trying to get at some part needing repair while the actual job has, only taken 10 , minutes to do.
