MAKING FARMING PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914

MAKING FARMING PAY. We are an trying to make things pay, but we- refuse to in/est enough brains in the study of things so that we can make them pay. Farming j everywhere, and in everything, is a deep question, one o fthe profound eat. 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 labol*, 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 tilings pay, and saving useless, not useful, expense. Surely there is neded a lot of wit and wisdom on the farm.

A BRAW COUNTRY. Boy's Alleged Essay on Scotland. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914

A BRAW COUNTRY. Boy's Alleged Essay on Scotland. The following, stated to fee by & Bunbury schoolboy, is reprinted from the "Southern Times," Bunbury, West Australia: - "Scotland is a braw wee land on the north o£ England. It has water . nearly all round it, and whiaky oyer a large part of it. "The population is about four and a-half millious, 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-' able mineral weauu, but very little of it finds its way but of the country. "Gold has at times been discovered 1 in certain districts, as well as in the pockets of certain natives, but in both cases it has been found difiicult to work. The best-known exports of Scotland are Harry Laurler and Scotch .whisky, though sufficient of the latter 1b retained in the country to satisfy the needs of home consumption. "The national dress of Scotland is the kilt, which is a kind o...

INSIST UPON BETTER ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 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 a/bout 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 labpr imposed upon his stock. He pays through the la-bor 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 roa...

FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914

FARM IMPLEMENTS. Their Care and Preservation. A matter which, is very often tie* ments. They are so often allowed to glected on farms is the care of imple Jie aJbout the place in all weathers that their periods of usefulness are seriously curtailed. After an imple ment has done Its first season's won: the owner should, when stowing 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 Buch 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 halts 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.

HOW TO TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914

HOW TO TALK. Keep clear of personalities in conversation. Talk o£ 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 neigh/boring town, request ling the postmaster to deliver it "to any respectable attorney." After ten days it waB returned with the significant endorsement, "None here." ?Sometimes our paths are strewn with red rose leaves, sometimes with i blue summonses. J Women want everything that man J lias, except moustaches and bald i heads. To err is masculine; to forgive fe« aninine. If some people didnt* talk about .what they were going to do, ' they would have precious little to talk about,

FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914

FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. Experiments have (been carried out by the French Academy of Sciences, to t.est 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 tliey were of the poorest quality. The heaviest eggs were laid, by those fed ou the flesh diet, 'whilst those fed on pure grain diet also beat the fish-fed (birds both for quality and weight of egg. The American poultry raisers are agreed that the best quality and heaviest eggs are got from fowls fed on grain with a small percentage of flesh food. Strange to say, they hold that the foraging 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 brown-tin...

Lismore Rifle Club. LADIES' NOMINATION MATCH. I . Ladies' Day on our rifle range proved quite an exciting and enjoyable on Li ny, and considering the fickle weather-a small item that riflemen would like to able to control a very largo number of ladies attended. Lunch and afternoon tea were served by the Captain's wife, Mrs W. M'Dowall, and .several other ladies. The ladies' prize was won, after an exciting contest, for Mrs J. Flanna gan. . The most important item was a 3 range shoot of 7 shots at the .3, 5 and 6 ranges. The weather was anything but favorable, wind and light continually failing, thereby upsetting the best-laid schemes of the "cracks." Messrs Blackburne, O'Donnell, Flannagan, Gullick and M'Dowall tied, their scores and handicap reaching the limit. In the shoot-off Messrs Blackburne, O'Donnell and M'Dowall were put' out of action,' Mr Blackburne being good enough to put a shot on the other fellow's target, thereby losing the match by doing so, as a hit on his own targe...

IIis rendition of " Mother Macree," in the second part, was won of the best items of the con cert. Miss Margery Bagge's artistic numbers, including encores, were "Farewell to Summer," " Stil! as the Night," "Habanera," and "Suns...

THE WHOLE TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 April 1914

THE WHOLE TRUTH. By Vernon Ralcton. William Arnott came out of the offi ces of Sollenberg, Steinthal and Com pany in despair. He had had recom mendations 'from half-a-dozen people when ho came from Canada to London. He had expected that the keen Loudon business men would have jumped at the chauce he put .before them. Three of the six firms had declined to see him at all. The great Jacob Roth etein, the famouB promoter, had heard him for five minutes and then had re marked : "frhiB is wild-cattery, meln -young friend. That Bort of business we do not touch." Arnott had told him wrathfully that he was ho used to floating shady com panies that he did not know a sound business proposition when he Baw it. And now Sollenberg, 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 <5iad turned to Mr. Arnott. "Nothing doing.

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Bo good, but also be good for some thing. It usually costs a man something to listen to flattery. Life is not all night and conflict; morning breaks at last. Know your man before you let his opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the same thing as strength of character. To be conscious that you arc ig norant is a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier lhan practising, but not half so ef fectual. Everything that thou re pro vent in another, thou must most carefully avoid in thyself.- (Meero. A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in mi hour. Many of the things which worry us most are trifles when we come to examine tlieni closely. To have a. respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.-Sterne. Nine-tenths of the people who fail in life do so because they have never appreciated the value of thorough ness. Only for the cheerful does the true of l...

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. "Talk about your commanders," said Tommy Atkins, "Bobs is the boy for me. I found out what lie was in Afghanistan. My company was dig ging trenches, and while finishing one the Afghans began firing, and the bul lets whistled close to our heads. "Well, there was a kid in the company that couldn't have been over 18. Never ought to have let him 'list. He was always growling and kicking, and at the first fire, down he went flat on his face, and laid there. Then along came 'Bobs,' cool and easy, and sees the kid. 'I-Iello, there!' says 'Bobs,' 'What's the matter, you fellow, down there? Get up and fight with your company.' 'No, I can't!' whines the kid. 'Can't,' says 'Bobs,' jumping down into the trench and hauling the boy up. 'What's the mat ter with you that you can't? Are you hurt?' 'No, sir,' says he, 'I'm afraid of getting hit.' 'Well, you're a fine soldier!' says the general. Then he looked at the boyish face of the lad, and his face softened. 'I suppose y...
