He had forgotten the frantic words Lucille uttered when she appeared on, the scene, and he was reluctant to question her con -cerning the trick that had so nearly cost him his life. He believed that he had judged her wrongly, and he wanted to believe this. He was deep ly grateful for her unremitting care and tenderness.. When Lucille was ab sent he missed her and grew restless; when she was with him he was con tent to lie and watch her. And mean while a strange influence was work ing in his heart-a change that he but vaguely realised as yet, anrd that be was powerless to resist. Occasionally he. had other visitors than the ...

INFLUENCE OF FATNESS OF COW AT CALVING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 27 June 1914
INFLUENCE OF FATNESS OF COW AT CALVING. .-An. examination 'of. the records of official tests with Holstein-Friesian cows by one of .the American experi mental stations showed that the fat content of the milk for a short time at the beginning of a lactation pe riod may have little relation, to the real average fat content, of the milk .produced by. any particular animal. Investigations with cows of various breeds and in 'different conditions were cairied out, and it is concluded that, providing the . cow is underfed after calving, the percentage of fat in the milk. for the first 20 or 30 days of the lact;tion -period is in fluenced to ma considerable extent by the fatness of the cow at calving. In some cases this influence appeared to extend to a certain degree for at least three months. The tiller" of the' soil is the most necessary .man in the world. He feeds and clothes the world, and with out h'irx the world would go naked and starve. Apparently he is the only, person in the worl...
HORNLESS CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 27 June 1914
HORNLESS CATTLE. Significant progress has been made during the past ten years in estab lishing polled types of horned breeds. of cattle. Polled Durhams, Polled Herefords, and Polled Jerseys repre sents the most notable achievements in this line of breeding. Beginning with ")ports" or naturally hornless animals, the polled character has been fixed in these three types to--an extent which ensures its reproduction in an overwhelming majority of ma tings: Polled blood has become so potent that, although obtained through "sports" from breeds with horns, its polling efficiency is thor oughly dependable, even in cases where the elimination of horns is met with stubborn inherent opposi tion. A strong and growing demand for polled types of horned breeds is ex pressing itself in the operations of farmers, feeders, and breeders. Those who take the-purely practical view of horns, considering them useless and expensive physically to remove, wel come the hornless types as satisfac tory substitute...
THE EVERY-DAY POTATO. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 27 June 1914
THE EVERY,-DAY POTATO. Potato Sauce.-This is a very easy and appetising way of dressing cold potatoes. Break the pieces up with a spoon, but do not mash them. Put some good dripping (or butter)' into a flat stewpan, add the potatoes, shake over a hot fire till slightly brown, sprinkle -with finely-chopped. parsley, and serve. Potato Chips.-Peel a sufficient quantity of potatoes and cut them into pieces about the size of orange sections. These must be thrown into boiling fat and fried.until done, then drained on paper before dishing up. SPotatoes Sliced and Crisped.-After peeling the potatoes cut into quite thin slices and fry in boiling fat till as crisp as biscuits, then shake on paper and place around roast poul try or game. Potato Sticks.-Peel one or two po- - tatoes, cut into slices - inch thick, then into sticks about the size of Smatches. Have ready boiling fat, fry the pieces thickly, anrid put round game in little heaps, with watercress between. Potato Cake.-This is excellen...
THE ORCHARD. NOMENCLATURE OF FRUIT. PARTICULARLY THE APPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 27 June 1914
THE ORCHARU. NOMENOLATURE OF FRUIT. PARTICULARLY THE APPLE. "What's in a name ?" To the or dinary individual it may be a matter of very little consequence what an apple is called by, and provided it is sound and fit to eat, one name may be as good as another; but to the _nurseryman, grower . and dealer it often becomes a matter of great im portance. At present we find that many of what we ma3 term the standard va rieties of apples are known untlnr different names in the various States and even in different districts often have local names. This leads to con fusion, and often to serious misun derstanding. For instance, the Scarlet Noupariel is kmown as the Winter Pearmain, Scarlet Pearmain, and sometimes as Cox's Orange Pippin; also the Gol den Reinette is called Adam's Pear main, Summer Pearmain, King Pip pin, etc, and many other varieties are known by various names. This is very unsatisfactory, and in the case of ordering nursery, stock or making co.iracts for certain vvii?fei ties...
BORACIC ACID. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1914
- DiOR.° OCIC I.ATiD 'ormerly afl the boraci,- ot baor~it acid of eommetse was obtained from' borax by lheating it with calcineid 4errous sulphate in closed vessels, whereby sodoforic acid was forme4d, and boracic acd was carried on with the watery vapours, which escaped. This was a long and tedious proa cess, and not much progress was made until it was discovered that boracic acid could be obtained ffren the boili uprings and jets of var pour in Tusanay.. Lon after the die over.y of beacfc acid in these springs,- the brilliant idea struck the physicinst as well as the chemist to imploy the heat of the natural uteam jets. This method had the ef rect of convertig an unprofitable branch of industry into one of the nost successful. The lagoons am situated near the top of one of the highest hills. As the volcanic vapourm pass through the waters of the lagoons the.boracic scid is arrested by the water, which secomes impregnated with it. In Jalifornia it occurs as the mineral sassolite, a...
Arbor Day at Point Lonsdale. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1914
Arbor Day at Point Lonsdale. The Arbor Day celebrations were carried out at the Point school on Friday of last week. For some reason, not yet explained, the.trees from the State nursery had not arrived, but the ceremonial part of the function-addresses, songs, &c.-was carried through. This year, as a result of repre sentations by the Queenscliff school committee, the department agreed to allow the Cliff celebration toibe put back a few days, and thus enable those who wished to attend both celebrations to do so. The change worked pretty well, though it was expected that more council lors would have attended. It was explained, however, that Friday morning is an awkward time for business men. Mr J. Hutchins, sen., occupied the chair, and the speakers were Revs. P. E. Mallalleu and D. G. McCrea and Cr Klug. The first named contrasted the deadly upas tree of Java and our own eucalyp tus, pointing out that while the former radiated disease and death, the latter was a source of hea...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1914
AT a time when many towns people are wondering- what could be done to attract " week-enders" to our pretty and cosy town during these winter months and an ad ditional number during the sum mer, too, a suggestion or .two, which if worked to perfection by our council (in the absence of a progiess association) would do a great deal in advertising the beauties of the ' Queen of Watering Places,' winter as well as summer. We have only to enter our local railway station and observe the way in which the Government Tourist Bureau advertise such resorts as Healesville, Buffalo and other places. Why cannot the same be done for Queenscliff? In the case of Healesville the bureau issues tickets at £3 each, and are available for 7 days; the price in cludes railway fare from Melbourne, accommodation at Healesville, and drives to the different places ofa interest, which are named on the posters displayed. This sug gestion could also be instituted from places like Ballarat, Geelong, and such other t...

Sunday Corner. For the Sake of Christ. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1914
Sunday Corner. For the Sake of Christ. Love of Christ must be the spring and inspiration of all duty, all heroism, all fine achievement, all service to our fellow-men. 'In His Name' is the true motto of all Christian living. Serving our fellow-men amounts to nothing in Heaven's sight if it is not done for the sake of Christ. The ser vice must be really rendered to Christ, no matter to whom the kindness is shown, or otherwise there is no exaltation in it, how ever beautiful It may be in itself. Things we do from any other motive have no acceptableness in the sight of God.

How Many Apples did Adam and Eve Eat [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1914
alow Many Apples did Adam * and I3ve Eat I g Some say Adam 8 and Eve 2-a total of 10 apples. But if Eve 8 and Adam 82, certainly the total is 90. Scientific men, however, who demonstrates that the Antediluvians were a race. of giants, reason something like this: Adam 81 and Eve 82-total, 163. Wrong again. What is clearer than that if Eve 81 and Adam 812, the total is 893 ? But if Eve 811st and Adam 812, they would have eaten 1623. But, on the other hand, If Eve 814 Adam, and Adam 814 Eve, they together consumed 1628. But if Eve 814 Adam, and Adam 81242 oblige E~ve, they consumed 82,056 apples. However, admitting that Eve 814 Adam, and Adam, if he 81281242 keep Eve company, which would make 81,282,056. The truth of the matter is, however, none of these. Eve when she 81812 many. Adam, to relieve her distress at the mistake she had made, 812. Therefore, Adam, if he 81814240fy Eve's depressed spirits. Hence both ate 81,896,052 apples.

From farthest South to farthest North Shall march thy lionhearted forth Australia, Australia! They'll rise, they'll come from east and west O'er peaceful vales and mountain's crest, To meet the foemen breast to breast Australia, Australia! As flow our rivers wh...
