VERY SIMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912
VERY SIMPLE. When Mr. Archibald Forbes was special correspondent in tho Russo-TurkisL war, and was thrilling the people day after day by 'his vivid despatches from the scene of action, a. Berlin paper pro fessed to explain the excellence ol Mr. Forbes' descriptions. One day a certain German journal's! met the English correspondent at tin seat ol war, and after the ordinal? courtesies had been exchanged, com plimented him on the power and ac curacy of his work, and implored him to reveal tho secret of it. '' Oh,' said Mr. Forbes, with the ut-. most nonchalance, ' it's all very simple indeed.' 'Simple!' exclaimed the German. 'I really don't know what you mean.' 'Well, I just manage it in this way,' explained the other, ' I prepare a full description of the battle in advance. 1 next go to the Russian commander and .say to him, 'Here is a line description, now get up a battle accordingly.' The commander, being an obliging man, does me the little favour, and then it's, all right ''' ? ?<...

Some experiments on the vaccination of cattle against tuberculosis, have re cently been published by Dr. Leonard Peorson, State veterinarian of Pennsyl vania, and Dr. S.. II. Gillilaud.

RAPE AND LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912
RAPE AND LUCERNE. After the recent rains crops may be largely sown. But before sowing the land should be brought to a very fine tilth, for the seed being so small it will not readily germinate unless the land is very finely prepared. River flats are generally found the most suitable land to sow lucerne upon. But the best way to find out whether a certain part of the farm will grow lucerne or Hot, is to give it a trial, that is for a period of say three or lour years through both good and bad seasons, aud if it con tinues to grow equally as well through out the seasons of drought, then you know^ihat suitable land has bean selects; but if not, the soil is not suit able and it is best to plough it up nt once, for it is unprofitable to keep l;v:d under lucerne whereon ib will only g p.v during the rainy season. The besi method of finding out the most 'suitable spot on a farm for growing lucerne. is by sowing several of the .most. lik-'l' looking spots, aud then note which v.-ii! furnish...

THE HEAVY HORSE. Far Best for the Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912
THE HEAVY HOR8E. Far Best for the- Farm. Whilst it is not absolutely acces sary to have the heaviest horses for the farm, it is essential that they have weight as well as strength. A small horse is using its muscle all the time, and when it comes to a bad place it is stuck. On the other hand, a large draugnt team uses on good roads its weight only, and haB its muscle in re serve to use when necessity requires. A draught horse is always in de mand. If a farmer sends a big heavy horse to' the city there are always men anxious to buy at good prices, whilst if one has a light horse to sell, unless it is something particularly fancy, one has to hunt up a buyer and quite often sell at a sacrifice. The farm machinery of to-day re quires large horses. The improve ments are mostly in the form of ma chinery that will either go down deep-, er into the soil and turn bigger fur rows or will cover twice as much ground in the operation. Any man or boy can. handle draught horses, as, generally spea...

VITALITY OF THE SEXES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912
VITALITY OF THE SEXES. There appears to be a prevailing impression that men are not only lesB subject to ailments and diseases and are longer-lived than women; but an examination of life assurance com panies' tables will show that the term of life of women is slightly longer than that of men. The difference in the mortality rates during the first few years of life is striking. During the first year (says 'Health') the mor tality among males is decidedly great er than among females. Though more boys are born than girls, the propor tions are reduced to almost even terms at the end of the first year by the excessive male mortality. Evea during the first four years the mortal ity among males exceeds that among females, notwithstanding the fact that there are practically no distinctions made in the management, of the two sexes. Both are subject' to the same conditions, are dressed virtually alike, and receive the same food. At about i five years tne comparative death-rate among girls beg...
WHAT FARMERS SHOULD DO. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912
WHAT FARMERS SHOULD DO. Mr. R. W. Peacock, manager of the Bathurst Experimental Farm, ad dressing the Spring Hill Agricultural Bureau few days since, pointed out that to ensure maximum crops of wheat the land should be kept in good tilth by the incorporation of organic mat ter, such as residues bf crops. The rotation of crops system was essen tial to supply this organic matter economically, and to keep down weeds and fungoid pests. Concerning man ures, Mr. Peacock stated that prac tically all Australian soils lacked available phosphoric acid, and gave re turns from the application of super phosphate, which made good the de ficiency. This superphosphate appear ed to induce a more vigorous early growth, which effected a deeper root system to forage further for plant food throughout the soil, the result being hardier and better crops. Mr. Pea cock advised the trying of tares and clover in crop rotations and the sow ing of wheat early, whilst the weathet and land were warm, to ensure ea...
LORETTA'S LOOKING-GLASS. She Holds It Up to the Woman Who Insinuates. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912
LORETTA'8 LOOKING-GLASS. She' Holds It Up to the Woman Who Insinuates. Oh, you human viper! See yourself as that insidious, sug gestive, hateful, damning look shines in your eyes! Look at your black brows, arched and scornful! And at your thin lips, tightening as you de liver your innuendo! Oh, you left your sentence incom plete! You have not really said any thing with your lips. You did not ar ticulate the words, the convicting words. . But need they be spoken? - Have you not told the girls who listen that you know something discrediting, dis- . advantageous— ah! you have insinua ted a good deal more than those words say! — about a mutual friend? Why, no serpent biting the heel of its arch enemy, man, ever inflicted a wound more deadly than your unfin ished sentence and the look on your face has made in the character of an other girl. And the cowardice of it! The cra ven cleverness that prompts you not to put your knowledge or your thought into words so that, it may be traced to yo...

ENVY OF THEIR SEX. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912
ENVY OF THEIR SEX. The women of Switzerland must surely be the envy of their sex throughout the world. On January 1 new civil laws came into force in Switzerland which bestowed great privileges upon the weaker sex. In deed, with the exception of the vote, a Swiss woman is almost as free as a man, but she cannot vote, even on municipal affairs. Even if married, a Swiss woman can now legally own property, and she can be sole legal guardian of her children if her hus band dieB. She may herself choose the form of marriage contract which she wishes to be drawn up; can be separated from her husband, and not merely di vorced as formerly; can claim divorce on exactly the same grounds as a man; and can make a legal will, without the consent of either her husband, or chil dren. She cannot, however, marry legally till the age of eighteen, whereas before she could marry at sixteen. She can bring an action for breach of promise, and if her husband becomes hopeless ly insane can divorce him. More...

Sporting. ANGLING. The long-looked-for visit of Sand Mullet & Co. has at last eventuated. Yesterday evening a local knight of the rod, Mr J, King, had a brisk skirmish with the advance guard of the mallet family at ' Haggar's,' and left the scene of the conflict with a score of fine fish in the bag. This news is what local fishermen have been patiently waiting for, and the angling competition to-morrow after noon should prove a big success. The fish caught yesterday were of extra ordinary large size, those that were thoughtfully sent along to this office being the finest we have seen for many a long day.
ADVICE TO A BABY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912
ADVICE TO A BABY. Exercise systematically the mus cles of the throat and lungs. Remem ber that for this purpose the night air is the best. Remember that bedclothes have but one use— to be kicked off. Always keep in reserve a certain amount of strength for the time when your mother or the nurse is obliged to go out, thus leaving you alone with your, father. At these periods you can show what you really amount to. Insist upon being rocked to sleep every night. It will endear you more than ever to everybody. When on a railway train keep as quiet as the grace until everybody has settled down to a quiet ride, and the serious old gentleman in the next seat has remarked that he never saw such a good baby. Then begin to stir, and settle down gradually to a series of blood-curdling yells. As you grow older and you are taken out in your baby-carriage, try to break the springs by bouncing up and down. Kick the nurse in the face occasion ally just to show her that there are no hard feelings.

SETTLE THINGS AS YOU GO. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912
I SETTLE THINGS AS YOU GO. Do you lack the power of decision? Does it take you a long time to make up your mind? Or are you always shilly-shallying? When something important. ..con- fronts you which demands immediate decision, do you hesitate, 'beat about the hush,' keep asking advice from one person after another, and often lose a grand opportunity to better yourself? When you have anything in hand, settle it. Do not look at it, lay it down, then look at something else, and lay that down also,, but settle things as you go along. It is a thou sand times better to make an occa sional mistake than never to settle anything, but he always balancing, weighing and considering many things at a time.
