DREAMS AND DREAMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 April 1914

DREAMS AND DREAMERS. There are sil'.l, even in -Jus enlight ened age, a number of jirjcrsli'laus individuals wlw attach .a moaning to certain dreams, ?i.U who wili tagerly refer to books on ihe H'ibjact, in older that they may ascertain the purport of some nocturnal reverie that is prob ably the outcome! of abal digestion. If the sleep be f.oun'l, the digestive and other organs i.ie in action,'and the sleeper will pass a perfectly un- ■ disturbed night. If, however, any of the ibodily functions are at all out of order, and more especially the diges tion, the nervous system will be af fected, and an imperfect conscious ness will be the result. A dream is nothing .more or less than an imperfectly formed thought, caused mostly by the individual not being at the time alive to the sur roundings; and the Imagination, not being under control, %vill v.-antyr un checked by circumstances, and the dreamer is under the impression that the ideas that flit through the brain are things which are a...

SPORT AND RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 April 1914

SPORT AND RELIGION. | "I do not bet," lie said, "firstly, bc: • cause It I did It would offend some members ot my congregntion; second i ly, because 1 do not think that it is I desirable; and, thirdly, because I think i that It would be wrong Cor me, with ' my meagre stipend, to bet. I simply 1 cannot afford it. 1 appeal to all . 'sports' not to allow their sport to • drive them away from religion. If I they can race and bet -with a clean I conscience. I do not think that God j will be offended. There is nothing . wrong with clean sport any more than with stock exchange speculations, and yet many people get up and denounce the evils of gambling and never say a word about gambling on the Stock Exchange. I am glad to be able to say that liorse-racing is improving, . and 1 believe that it ■will continue to improve.

FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 April 1914

FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. iThe recent announcement in n con temporary that the Ulster alien are trying to Institute a demonstration, when every mian, 'woman and child will, wear a flower as a token o£ their aversion to Home Rule, reminds one i 1iow often flowers have been 118011 as emblems. Since the lenders ot the Yorkist anil Lancastrian parties each plucked a. rose In the Temple Gardens, the Lan castrian n red and the York a white, this flower has been a popular emblem. Apart from the fact that red roses are symbolical of love and white of purity, our national emblem Is the rose; the Legitimist Party of Franco formed the League of the Rose in imjtation of our Primrose League, while owing to Gladstone's fondness .for white roses many Liberals once wished to unake them ail emblem for their party, but (.he Idea was not adopt-' ed. The /primrose, it 1s suid, was Bea consfleld's favorite flower, and has ibeen chosen (by his followers, who formed the PrLmrose League, aa an emblem, while in F...

Naqua, the Bushman [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 April 1914

- Naqua, the Bushman / By Perceval Gibbon In the Pittsburgh "Sunday Magazine." • The old yellow-fnnged (log baboon ■■ that <wus chained to a post in the yard had n dangerous trick of tlirow ' Ing stones.

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 April 1914

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. As an intance o£ the numbers of | bacteria * the common fly can carry,, j the following figures given by Pro j lessor Easton may be cited: — He caught 100 flies in a kitchen, put them in a pint of sterilised water anil j ! rinsed them about, and then examined the water, and found that he had rais ed such a number of bacteria off that each fly averaged over 300,000. He next caught a similar number in the cow barn, and they averaged over 800,000 each, another 100 in the pip pen, and they averaged over 1,000,000 each. It may be said that when one goes into a factory or house and finds, many flies, one is immediately justi-, fied in condemning the sanitary sur-1 rcundings of Such premises. One can j appreciate the fact that in factories ! where flies abound it is next to im possible to keep them out of the I , milk, and the seeding of the milk by the bacteria which they carry | must be.very appreciable. The evil deeds of the fly need emphasising, as j too many of u...

CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 April 1914

CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. The value of tlie cabbage as a feed for dairy cows is fairly generally known. It is a succulent feed, is highly relished by cows, is an ex cellent millc producer, and is rich in protein. But whilst its value is rea lised, many dairy farmers have a rooted obectlon to it on account of its liability to impart an undesirable flavor to milk and butter. This ques tion is dealt with by a writer in p. recent issue of "Hoard's Dairyman." After observing that the only objec tion to feeding cabbage to milch cows is the flavor imparted to the milk, he proceeds to point out that, when fed under certain conditions, this objectionable feature can be avoided. One of the first precautions to observe is to keep the cabbage away from the shed at milking time. Millc absorbs odors very quickly indeed, and if' the cabbage odors are • near the milk it will be tainted. An other precaution to observe is not to feed the cows just before milking; any high-flavored feed, in fact—tur nip...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Used In water as a dally gargle, ✓ borax keeps the throat healthy. Used In water for cleansing the teeth it "disinfects" them and prevents their decaying. In wet weather clean the windows with chamois leather in the usual way, then sprinkle a little (lour on the pol isliing duster. The result will he an easy and a brilliant polish. Should the" inkpot bo accidentally upset on tablecloth or carpet, pour a little cold water over it at once. The j. Ink will float on the water, and when cloth or carpet is rubbed dry no stain will show. To prevent inferior potatoes from appearing watery when cooked, scrub, then score the skin lightly, length ways and across, all the way round, Boil in salted water. They will then be dry and iloury. Before using a new saucepan al ways 1111 it with water. If not an en amelled one, add a lump of soda and potato peelings and let it 'boil for some hours.

GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 April 1914

GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. The dairy- cow is one of the best solutions for the problem of tlie high cost of living. She not only furnishes cheap, wholesome, and nourishing foods, in the products of the dairy, but the manure, if saved and properly used on the land, will accelerate larger crops and more pro fits per acre. But we must have good herds. Probably in no other Industry con nected with the soil is there more ne nessity for a complete reorganisation of the methods of working than in dairying. Although we have an In comparable climate for dairying, the business is unsound at its base through tlio use of any lcind of ani mal in the shape of a cow. No sane man would think of sowing the same kind of seed for a grain crop year after year when he found by practi seed was less than one-half what it cal test that the yield from that seed was less than one-half what it should be. Yet men will go on milk ing and rearing calveB for future use from cows which do not actually pay for their kee...

SELECTING THE MILK COW. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 April 1914

SELECTING THE MILK COW. Nearly every good milk cow pos sesses certain points of conformation which indicate her milking qualities. The first important point is that she shall show a lean or bony form, with a sharp prominent backbone, rib3 wide apart, sharp withers and incurv ing thighs. This indicates "dairy temperament," or, in other words, that she will turn her feed into milk instead of beef. Next she will have a long, deep bar rel; well sprung ribs, broad muzzle, and a strong jaw, tliese points indica' ing capacity for consuming larger amounts of feed. Third, she will show a hardy con stitution. which is indicated by a large heart girth, a deep chest, large open ndstrils, and a large wind pipe and lung capacity. Fourth, a good dairy cow should have an udder of good size running well forward and hung up well be hind. The region of the pelvis or the hips is wide, as is also the space be tween the thighs as viewed from be hind, giving anft)le room for a large udder. A large udder i...

THE FOLLY OF FRETTING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 April 1914

THE FOLLY OF FRETTING. Don't worry yourself. It won't do any good, and you'll make yourself a nuisance to all your friends. Worry wears more than work, and you begin to look miserable and cau't eac more than one plateful at dinner, and you have pains in your head and can't sleep'.' Suppose you try and find the bright side, or try to. make or do any thing but stare and talk about UiO blackness. Nobody ever did any good yet by what country folk:! call "sflift ing and stewing," which inaans keep ing one's mind in worrlmont and agi tation, and wondering whether this thing will come right or that tiling fail. Go straight ahead in the even tenor of your way, and probably you v 111 get along better than any amount of fretting would allo>v you. 'lake things quietly. Don't be too much up set or agitated about anything. Do you know that five minutes of high exc;iloment takes as much out of a pcrt'on as five hours' hard .vol k, and ten minutes' deep grief will often make one downright ill. ...

MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 April 1914

MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. The oxperlcnco already gained in places whore associations have been organised shows that with the weed ing out of tlio unprofitable cowj comes an interest in better cows and in the greater care ot the cows. There is a tendency to make greator discrimination in price between good and poor animals. The introduction of better cow? per medium oE the testing* proceri, creates a desire .for more of them. Thus a larger number of cows w 1th high yielding capacity reduces the cost of collecting milk and cream m a given territory. The increased interest in Jaivving stimulates an Interest in pure-bred stock. Instances are given where dur ing tho first year's existenr.2 of a dairy-testing association only one iran owned a pure-bred dairy bull; twenty two such bulls were found anion*; the herds the following year. While no pure-bred cows at all w""o owned the first year, twenty-one were bought during the second year. This it terest steadily Increased, and duriu.? the...

Not Meant for Either. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 11 April 1914

Not Meant for Either. 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 or 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" \vas anxious to get rid of the "old maid," and for this purppse rather prematurely aslied the privilege of giving a toast. This being granted, lie rose and gave the old toast of "Hon- / est men and bonnie lasses." (Tiie toast was drunk with honor, when the dame, who waB sitting next the lawyer, tobo from her seat, gave end of her ihbny linger, and, having said, "That toast neither applies to you nor me," left the room. Telegrams were invented by the. father . of lies, undoubtedly. After, all, anything will do for- truth—writ- ' ten on pink paper in somebody else's poncil scribb...
