BUYING NEW IMPLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 April 1914
BUYING NEW IMPLEMENTS. In buying new implements or ma chines, every &lt;man will foe guided by his own experience or fancy. We find one man swearing by a certain make of machine, and the next neighbor by another make, '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. i

FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 April 1914
1 *fXrm IMPLEMENTS." 1 Their Care and Preservation. A matter -which is very often ne* ments. They are so often allowed to. glected on farms is the care of imple lie albout the place in all weathers that their periods of usefulness are seriously curtailed.. After an imple ment has done..its -first season's work the owner should, when stowin? It in its proper place, see that it is in or der, and if there are any defects he should , make a note of them, or, if convenient, it is better to have such defects repaired at once. Then he knows that his machine is ready for the next season's work. With such implements as the stripper or har vester, where belts are used, the belts should be removed and have a little oil rubbed on them, and ibe put away in a cool place. The seed drill is an implement that requires a lot of care. A little extra attention will often save two or three days' delay. Suci- im plements as ploughs, harrows, culti vators, etc., which are of iron,.do not require a shed so...

INSIST UPON BETTER ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 April 1914
INSIST UPON BETTER ROADS. Better roads are essential to 'better living as well to the farmer's com fort and convenience. They are essen tial to the reasonable pleasure of his family. Good roads mark the stand ing of every community. The greatest objection to living in the country is the difficulty of getting about. You must get aibout if you. ■properly market your crops, if you are to keep your machinery in order, if you send your children to school, if you go to church or attend meet ings. These are not little things. They are matters of vital importance. Bad roads impose the heaviest tax on a farmer that he pays, and he is cer tain to pay for it, whether he knows it or not. He pays it in the wear and tear of all his vehicles. He pays it in the additional labor imposed upon his stock. He pays through the labor or self-denial of his family. .Therefore, work for better roads as you would work to put out a fire in your barn. Study the best methods for building and maintaining better r...
MAKING FARMING PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 April 1914
MAKING FARMING PAY. We are all trying to make things pay, tout we refuse to invest enough brains in the study of things so that we can make them pay. Farming everywhere, and "in everything, is a deep question, one o fthe profound est. It requires a lot of thought, study and good judgment to make it pay. Some must have an Immediate profit, and so they skin the land. Oth ers try to save expense in lahor, and harvest no crop; others try to save ex pense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save expense in secur ing good breeding stock, and so pro duc cows theat do not giv the, most profitable result. Others refuse to feed a good cow sufficiently to enable her to produce to her fullest capacity. All about us is this ever-present ques tion of making things pay, and saving useless,' not useful, expense. Surely there is neded a lot.of wit and wisdom on the farm.

A BRAW COUNTRY.'' d Boy's Alleged Essay on Scotland. The following, stated to be toy a Buhbury schoolboy, iB reprinted from •the "Southern Times," Bunbury, West Australia:— "Scotland is a braw wee land on . the north of England. It has water nearly all1 round it, and whisky over a large part of it. "The population is about lour and ,; ... arhalf millions, including 'Mr. Andrew Carnegie. It has a peculiar language > of its own, and if one can pronounce it coherently it is an infallible test of sobriety. It possesses consider* 9 able mineral weaiin, but very little of it finds its way out of the country. "Gold has at times been discovered in certain districts, as well as in the pockets of certain natives, .but in b»th cases it has been found difficult to work. The best-known exports of ^ Scotland are Harry Lauder and Scotch . whisky, though sufficient of the latter is retained in the country to satisfy 1 the needs of home consumption. - "The national dress of Scotland is • the kilt...

FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 April 1914
FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. Experiments have (been carried out by the French Academy of Sciences, to test the effect of feeding on the quality and size of eggs to find out how to produce the 'biggest eggs. Three lots of ducks were fed on flesh, fish and vegetables. Those fed on the fish diet laid the greatest num ber of eggs, ibut they were of the poorest quality. The heaviest eggs were laid by those fed on the flesh diet, whilst those fed on pure grain diet also heat the fish-fed (birds both for quality and weight of egg. " The American poultry raisers are agreed that the best quality and v 1 heaviest eggs are got from fowls fed T j on grain with a small percentage of flesh food. Strange to say, they hold that the fo'-ging of insect and such like life has a deteriorating effect on the quality of the egg, and they are also unanimous in the finding that too much green food has a similar effect on the quality and weight of an egg. It is on this account that they agree that the Asiatic ibr...
Bowman's Forest Land. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 April 1914

On the jDurney of the Hons Daw son (Minister for Lands) and Hut chinson (Minister for Agriculture) across from Beech worth to Myrtle ford a deputation requested that about 6000 acres of forest reserve should be thrown open for selection, this is the land between Bowman's Forest Gap and. Palmerston for which application has already been made. If the families resident near it cannot get possession of it they inform us that they will be forced to leave the district.

HOW TO TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 April 1914
HOW TO TALK. Keep clear of personalities in conversation. Talk of things, ob jects, thoughts. The smallest minds occupy themselves with persons. Do not needlessly report ill of others. As far as possible, dwell on the good side of human beings. . . . There is evil enough in man, God knows. But it is not the mission of every young man and woman to de tail and report it all. Keep the at mosphere as pure as possible, and fragrant with gentleness and char ity. An American recently forwarded a letter to a neighboring town, request ing the postmaster to deliver it "to any respectable attorney." After ten days it was returned with the significant endorsement, "None here." Sometimes our paths are strewn with red rose leaves, sometimes with blue summonses. Women want everything that man lias, except moustaches and bald heads. To err is masculine; to forgive fe minine., If some people didnt' talk about what they Were going to ,do, they would have precious little 1 to talk about. ' \ '

Rain is water in the act of falling from the clouds. It is im possible that they should look alike." "What I meant was that the sky looked like rain." "Equally impossible.

THE WHOLE TRUTH. By Vernon Ralston. ' William. Arnott came out of the offi jcea of Sollenfoerg, Steinthal and. Com pany in despair. He iiad had recom mendations from half-a-dozen people when lie came from Canada to London. He had expected that the keen London business men "would have jumped at the chance he put before them. Three ot the six firms had declined to see ftim at all. The great Jacob Roth etein, the famous promoter, had heard ftim if or five minutes and then, had re marked: • • ■"iThis is wild-cattery, mein young friend. That sort of business we da not touch." • v . ; • * Arnott had told him wrathfully that he was so used to floating shady com panies that he did not (know a sound business proposition when he saw it. iAnd now Sollenfaerg, Steinthal and Company had frankly laughed at him. Sollenberg himself had got up in the midst of his explanations to telephone to a friend to meet him to supper at the Ritz the next evening, and then had turned to Mr. Arnott. "Nothing doin...

Wot wi' the row of the birds in the daytime, and the noise of the silence at night, I 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." i -A man who has his price gives him self away.
