OH DRAWING FLOWERS WITH PEN AND INK. .If it be true as :he pretty conceit says, the flowers only flourish rightly; in the gardens of those who love them it is surely none tha less true that to draw plant, forms well we must have a true appreciation of their beauty ami poetic meaning. As a. writer on this subject well says : '"We can have no thing more beautiful to draw than a flower, unless it be a beautiful face.; Flowers, leaves and indeed " alt plant forms give us tha most perfect models we can desire, and by their infinite va riety and aspects de mand from us keen observation if wo would succeed in in terpreting; them aright. Jf we lovo flowers we shall de light in drawing then1., and as we DAFFODILS. draw Ihom we cannot fail to under stand and know thorn better than we have ever dime before." Again, fiowcrs have recommendations to study which other objects do not possess. To namo throe only : An inoxhausfible fund of subjects, and these easily attainable ; the ability to practi...

A ubiel's ruuang ye takia' notos as' faith he'll preDt'em Last- season r wheat lumper at Noradjuha offered to wager that a well-known farmer who was present could not follow him, providing each had a bag of wheat on hia back* The farmer " took him up," to quote the classical language of 'he book; maker. Each shouldered a bag, and the farmer followed the lumper up and down wheat stacks with an ease that made the lumper green with envy. The latter soon began to show iJiio the weight was telling, but be jerked one leg after the other up the wheat heaps. But from sheer ex haustion he-eventually gave in, with the farmer going strong. Later it was learnt that the farmer was carry ing a bag of ohaff. The lumper has had to bear a lot of "chaff" ever since When responding to ,the toast of The Chairman at the banquet given to Mr W. C.

SENSATIONAL MOTOR TRIP MOTOR UPSETS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 15 May 1914
lENJATIONAL MOTOR TRIP MOTOR UPSETS. An eventful motor trip w*s experienced by a party of Natimuk residents on Wednes day. Anxious to do honor to i Mr W. C. Schmidt, whose wed ding day it was. the party braved the element* and the slushy ^oads-to say nothing of the 90 odd miles which separates (via Balmoral) Nati muk from Casterton. Ttere had been a good drop of rain the m'gbt. before, and daylight on Wednesday' morning re vealed watery-looking skim mers skywards. Two cars were cancelled, arrangements hav ing been made for four. Bit for the rain which fell on Wednesday while the party were making the journey nothing eventful wou'd in ail probability have happened. It did rain, howeyer, and seme thing eventful did happen-^o eventful, indeed, that it is quite providential that four of the wedding party completed the trip. The road between NTati mub and Toolondo was mostly a nightmare. The tngine groaned, the noise to those behind being suggestive a\most of intense human anguish, and a...

THE COW'S DAILY WORK. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 15 May 1914
THE COW'S DAILY WORK. The wise dairvm:m hold in mind that a good dairy cow in full milk is expending as much cr.crgy as a horse at hard labour, and this without ces sation for many months. We have learned that the harder the horse works the more grain and the less rough-age ho 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., worViuig extra hard, all grain should he ground or crushed. The dry cow doing little work can subsist on less-eare'uily prepared food, and all or most- may he in the form of roughage. In !ee*tin?r. the aim shouh'i bo to sunpi\ rnrcch rough asv as the covr will readily, consume. i t this add saflicve-nt crrain or concentrate* to keep the digestible matter u|> to the statrdard set by the scK-ntists. -Hwi ry.

THE DAIRY THE POT-BELLIED CALF. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 15 May 1914
THE DAIRY -, ^ ' THE POT-BELl/IEI) CAI,F. A p'.ea in favour of the pitiful, suf fering. pot-bellied calf appears in one of our exchanges by Mr. T. H. C oo- j per, the noted Jersey importer and breeder. Coming from a man who is an accepted authority on cattle and v.'bo has sold more animals at prices ranging from £2(|0 to C-ri'iO a bend than an>" other person, what he pays . and thinks are worthy of attention. I Jlr. Cooper says that the calf that is led 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 heavj hide. On the Other hand, the scrawny calf with : a pot-belly, while it does not show I up well in the showing; is the o$e j that gets admiration when it comes j into milk. j It has been his observation that . calves that suffered from1 scours* are ; invariably the* one9 that give a-good 1 .account of thems...

THE FARM. LUCERNE THE WONDERFUL. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 15 May 1914
LUCERNE THE WONDERFUL. F. D. Coburn write-s, in the courss 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 clw. casts a severe re flection. not only on himself, but - on' his land, his locaiity, 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 Nvho know it best and use a fair intelli gence in their dealings witti it. AmoiiK 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 the soil or to res...
FOR KEEPING BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 15 May 1914
FOH KEEPING BUTTKR. A "Uecuier" tells to "Pack but ter tightly in e:\Hhern jars to with in two uv thrc,> iiK-hos of \he top : pack the butlrr. tightly an\l closely. Cover with a layer of cliee^e cloth, then pack suit over the top an inch or two thick, and keep a tittle water on top of the salt." Making the farm yieirt mure with out increase in acreage can he done by nsir.q: lucerne and silage. These two agencies will vio nmre to increase the capacity of the I a ml trmn any thing else. Of course, it is under stood that the dairy cow must be kept in oruer to g-et the best returns from the luc-erne aud silage.
