HOW DESERTS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1914
HOW R3S~RTS ARE FORMED. her is a popular idea that deserts )Ike the SaharA are the bottoms pf iacient seas which have been lifted above their original elevation by geological forces. This notion is ant eri'oneous one. It is absolutely cer tain, high authorities contend, that the sands of all the great deserts have been formed on the spot by the disintegration of the s'olid rocks on which they rest. Desert sands cor respond in all respects, so far as their mode of orfgin is concerned, to the dust and sand that accumulates on our high roads in summer. All deserts are situated where the winds from the ocean, before reaching them are exhausted of their moisture by passing over mountains or across ex temalve tracts of land.

FOOTBALL. I Queenscliff (10-12) Beat Portarlington (4-5) .A Runaway Game Queenscliff's Lead in Opening Quarter Wins the Game Port's Poor Display. What was expeted to be one of the best games this season proved to be one of .the poorest, as only one -team :got going, --while the other. was seeking for a system. The reward of a lively start was the result of Queenseliff landing to easy victory the above the match, which took place -on the local ground on Saturday last in the pre sence of a large gathering. Perfect weather prevailed, but the game was minus all the thrilling excite ment that generally is seen at the meeting of these teams. No sooner had the.game been in play when the winners had established a winning lead, which they easily maintained till the final bell. On the winning side two players played a wonder ful game, namely Knight and Mitchell, being well supported by Mills. This happy trio missed nothing that came their way. Knight took no less than thirty marks during the ...

THE FARM. LUCERNE THE WONDERFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1914
THE FARM. -4---+---- LUCERNE THE WONDERFUL. F. D. Coburn writes, in the course : of an article in the "Aational Land and- Irrigation Journal," (U.S.A.): : ' -The man who, in these days says his land will not produce lucerne, a plant that will grow pretty much everywhere else, casts a severe re fiection, not only on himself, but on his land, his locality, and his State. To say that "any fool can grow lucerne" is misleading, but with fair treatment, under fairly favourable conditions, it is bringing good for tune to thousands of those who know it best and use a fair intelli gence in their dealings with it. Among its fundamental requirements is a fairly fertile soil, free from weed seeds, in good tilth, with a surface painstakingly fined, levelled, and smoothed. There is little difference between successful lucerne growing and -the) successful growing of other crops. Poor farming never brings big crops, nor will poor land produce as large yields as the more fertile. Failure to leave in...
FOR KEEPING BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1914
FOR KEEPING BUTfiR. A "Reader" tells us to "Pack but ter tightly in earthern jars to with in two or three inehes of the top pack the butter, ti~hly and closely. Cover with a layer of cheese cloth, then pack salt over the top an inch or two thick, and keep a little water on top of the salt." Making the farm yield more with out increase in acreage can be done by using licerne and silage. These two agencies will do more to increase the capacity of the land than any thing else. Of course, it' is under s~tood that the dairy cow must be kept in order to get the best returns from the lucerne and silage.
THE COW'S DAILY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1914
THE COW'S DAILY WORK. The wise dairyman hold in mind Ithat a good dairy cow in full milk is 'expending as much energy as a horse at hard labour, and this without ces sation for many months. We have learned that the harder the 4iorse works the more grain and the less roughage he must have, and the same is true for the cow. Except when pasture is good, a portion of the cow's provender should consist of grain or rich concentrates, and if she is yielding a large amount of milk, i.e., working extra hard, all grain should be ground or crushed. The dry cow doing little work can subsist on less-carefully prepared food, and all or most may be in the form of roughage. In feedin~g, the aim should be to suppl3 as much rough ag~e as the cow will readily, consume, and to this add sufficient grain or concentrates to keep the digestible matt-er up to the stand?ard set by the scientists.-Henry. .
THE DAIRY THE POT-BELLIED CALF. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 July 1914
THE DAIRY --+ ------· THE POT-BELLIED CALF. A plain favour of the pitiful, suf fering, pot-bellied calf appears in one of our exchanges by Mr. T. S. Coo per, the noted Jersey importer and breeder. Coming from a man who is an accepted authority on cattle and who has sold more animals at prices ranging from £200 to £300 a head than any other person, what he says and thinks are worthy of attention. Mr. Cooper says that the calf that is fed lots of whole milk and rich grains, while it looks good and is making the growth so much desired by the progressive owner, will in variably lay on excessive flesh, de velop a thick neck, heavy dewlap, coarse bones, and a heavy hide. On the other hand, the scrawny calf with a pot-belly, while it does not show up well in the showing, is the one that gets admiration when it comes into milk. It has been his observation that calves that suffered from scours are invariably the ones that give a good account of themselves when matured, for the simple reason ...

He felt his air-castles tumbling about him in ruins. "It is better to face the worst," Lucille continued, sadly. "There is no thought of danger in the, town, thougli the people are excited. Jason Gore believes these men-of-war have found the island by chance, and that they are not sure it is the place they are seeking. He has already given orders that no fires shall be lighted. The guns are masked, and from the sea the fortress looks like a barren cliff. So the ships will probably sail around the island for a day or two -they can't get through the outer reef--and when they find no trace of human occupation they will go away again." "Yes, ...

Rheumatism, Lumbago and Sciatica. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914
Lumbago and Sciatica. There are three forms of Rheuma tism-Acute Rheumatism, Chronic Rheumatis:n, and Muscular Rheuma tism.

Chronic Rheumatism is not so painful, but more persistent, and may attack dif ferent parts until it finally becomes fixed in one joint, when it is most difficult to remove. MIuscular Rheu matism is more of the nature of Neu ralgia. It is a dull pain, which in creases in severity until movement of any sort is attended by convulsive and cramnplike pains, which causes the patient to groan or cry aloud, and often wake him from sleep. An at tack may last a week or more at a time. When this complaint occurs in the -back or loins i...

Artillery (7-12) Beat Portarlington .(5-8). Ports Faulty Forwards. An Interesting Game. Artillery Show Good Improve ment. The above match, which took place on the local ground on Satur day last, proved to be an interest ing game. The weather was all that could be desired and the at tendance numbered about 300. A victory to the Ports would have meant a lot, but defeat came their way, which brought them down the list and level with Queenscliff, who defeated the Engineers at Port arlington. - The game' was fast throughout, most of the play being kept in centre of the ground.

The forward lines of the Artillery was at its best, Thompson being in fine form and kicking four out of seven goals scored in the match. Ports were without the services of Martin and Grigg, while the Artillery included Culliver, Jack and Ryan, all of whom justified their inclu sion. The openin...
