CONSUL'S WIDOW HOTEL BILL QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 February 1914
CONSUL'S WIDOW HOTEL BILL QUESTION. A fashlonably-dressed woman of 48, Hannah Gordon Watson, who was stated to be the widow of a former Consul of the United States, was re manded on bail at Bow street yester clay (reports "The Daily News," De cember 23), charged with fraudulently obtaining credit to the extent of £7 odd at the Waldorf Hotel. The defendant was wearing a long black velvet coat, trimmed with fur and was heavily veiled. Detective-Sergeant Collins stated that he saw the defendant at Charlng-cross station on Saturday afternoon, and said to her, "I believe you represent yourself to be the Hon, Mrs Watson?" She replied, "Yes." After the warrant had been read to her she said, "I have done nothing wrong. I intended to pay my bill. I expected some money from Australia which should have reached me on December 2, It has been delayed, and I am left in a fix; but as soon as It arrives I shall pay them. I told them how I was placed, and they told me to go. Surely I have committed n...
LAND OF MYSTERY AMONG WILD TRIBES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 February 1914
LAND OF MYSTERY AMONG WEnD TIIIBES. We have received further despatches by mail from Mr Alan Ostler (says "The Express" of December 9) supple menting the dramatic message dated November 23 published yesterday, sent from Gibcli by runners across Somali land and cabled from Aden. .Y esterday's remarkable story, in which Mr Ostler described how he ex pelled a band of armed Abyssinian raid ers who were robbing and beating Bri tish tribesmen; proves that the Abys sinians, as well as the followers of the Mad Mullah, are in the habit of raiding the friendly tribes in British territory who have been left without protection by the British Government. The following despatch, dated more than a fortnight earlier than the cabled message, shows that Mr Ostler- has had difficulty in evading Abyssinian watchfulness. A previous message de scribed how the Abyssinlans, in collu sion with the British authorities at tempted to prevent him from entering British territory owing to the desire there is to c...
TELEGRAPHIC PIONEER WIRELESS EXPERIMENTS IN 1845 [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 February 1914
TELEGRAPHIC PIONEER WIRELESS EXPERIMENTS IN 1845 Mr J. W. Wilkins, whose death at Kingston-on-Thames at the age of 86 has been announced in these columns (says "The Daily News," December 23) was a' pioneer of telegraphs and erected the world's first line. In July, 1845, when'only 18 years of age, he was appointed resident superintendent of the Northampton and Peterborough Telegraphs - the first appointment of the kind on any railway in the coun try. On the completion of the line from Rugby to London in 1846, Mr Wilkins took entire charge, and also of the tem porary terminus in Seymour street, Euston Square. In that year the Queen's Speech at t.he opening of Parliament was for the first time telegraphed to about a dozen towns in the Midlands and the North of England. For this purpose the Speech I had to be conveyed by special engine from Euston to Rugby; there being no telegraph south of that town at the time. From Rugby it was wired to Derby, thence repeated to Normanton, f dispatch...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 February 1914
AT.the fast meetihg of the Ker ang Shire Council reference 'was made to the thistle difficulty, when the proposed amendments of the Thistle Act came up for discussion. Cr O'Donnell, in his speech at the Mechanics on Tues day night also mentioned the subject. The thistles and the rabbits are always difficult sub jects for the municipal .bodies to deal with. Those ratepayers who do their duty by keeping both pests down on their properties were continually worrying shire councillors to compel others to do likewise. On the other hand ratepayers who neglect to per form the work of eradication and extirpation plead with the local government representatives to administer the act in a sympath etic manner, which means that that they-should-not be prosecut ed for dereliction of duty. Those who-are the greatest offenders usually have- large properties devoted to grazing'chiefly. See ing that councillors ' are elected to represent the interests ,of the ratepayers and seeing that the interests o...

THE PIGGERY. Profitable Rearing. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 27 February 1914
THE PIGGERY. Profitable Rearing. The whole secret in rearing profit able pigs is to get well-bred ones, and (by consistent feeding keep them. going without a cheek until they are sent to market. Perhaps the most prolific breeds are Berkshires, York shires, and Tamworths. Excellent 'baconers are obtained by crossing Tamworths and Berkshires. There is no dubt that the Berkshilres are general favorites, but it must be re membered that the'favorite does nbt alwvays win the cup; and, after giving the Berkshires credit for many ggod points, it will, perhaps, tbe found that the most useful types are the Middle York and the York-Berkshire cross, because the Yorkshire will grow in to a first-grade baca pig on less feed than any other breed, and in less- time. In crossing Yorkshires: and Berkshires, it is found to be the best plan to use 'the Berkshire 'boar, because the Yorkshire sow is a ibet ter mother than the Berkshire, and requires very little to keep her in condition between litters, t...
PURE WATER FOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 27 February 1914
PURE WATER FOR COWS. Pure water for cows Is as import ant in milk production as the food they eat. Much has been written concerning the rations *for dairy cows, but not so much about the water the cow drinks and Its rela tion to pure milk and the health of the animal. The d.iry cow needs an abundant supply of pure water, not only as an aid to digestion and other bodily needs, but to produce her. nor msl supply of milk. If the cows do not get enough water, the milk flow will be decreased, just as surely as if they did not get enough food. There are various reasons why water consumed by dairy cows should be pure. In the first..place, pure water promotes the health of the animals. Cows which are compelled to drink impure water usually fall away rapidly. Impure .water contains the ova of dangerous parasites. These parasites attack all kinds of -farm animals that drink water containing the ova. The dangerous thing is that the cause of the loss of animals by parasites is unsuspected, and ...
