: THE "SACRED CAUSE" OF AGRICULTURE. 1 A High and Noble Calling. Agriculture is the only life's jofo to -which the Creator ever directly set a man. He put Adam in the garden of Eden "to dress and keep it." Conse quently, the 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 he so called. Anything that is high and noble; anything that can be exalted in the conception and the doing; any thing that conduces to the best in man and the 'best in his surroundings may ibe called sacred. All this may truly 'be said of the cultivation of the soil and husbandry at its ibest. It is not easy for a farmer always to rememiber this. One is not alwa...

PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 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 fina wire netting, will also he 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 galvanised 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 toe found impossible for mice to enter a stack thus protected.

Alcohol Banned. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 April 1914

Alcohol Banned. A tremetidous sensation has been •caused in naval circles in Washing ton by the promulgation of an order that on and after July 1 officers on the ships of the Americau navy will have to be total abstainers both at •sea and in the houses and clubs within the naval yards on shore. It is explained that the Secretary of the Navy considers that alcohol is bad both for health aud discipline. The popularity of. the Administra tion is not likely to be prejudiced "by its. blue-ribbon tendencies, as the temperance movement in the United States is growing stronger. The army is fearful lest it should be treated like the navy. An old identity of Yackanda,ndah in the person of Mr John Robert Morrisou 9P 15th. iust • at the j age of 79 yesirs,.
