NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 6 June 1914
NOTES. The match between Berringa and Scarsdale on Saturday was of the most friendly character, and it is to be hoped this feature will character ise the whole of the season's mat ches. F. Hughes secured a lucky goal on Saturday. It was a real "drib bler" through the posts. Berringa's captain wants to be firm on the point that the players keep their places, and not take rov ing commissions as Bome players did on Saturday. If this matter is not attended to Berringa cannot expect to succeed. To-day's Association match is Scarsdale v. Linton. Bsrringa having the bye to-day, they have accepted a challenge to play Cressy on the Berringa Re serve this afternoon. A goad game is anticipated. As Berringa has,a few byea dur ing the season, add also with a view of keeping the players in form, the beBt two out of three games are to be played by Tuilnel and Trades and Fancy teams for a trophy presented by Mr J. O'Donnell. The following rules have been adopted in connection with the Scarsdale Dis...
Sporting. FOOTBALL. ASSOCIATION MATCHES. SCARSDALE V. BERRINGA. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 6 June 1914
FOOTBALL. ASSOCIATION MATCHES. SCAR&DALE V. BERRINGA. Ah evenly-contested match, a friendly match, and a match worth locking at, was the general yerdict of the contest between Berringa and Scarsdale, which took place on Sat urday at the Berringa Recreation Reserve. It was the first association match of the season, and supporters of both sides wore numerous. The j teams were fairly evenly balanced with regard to weight. The game was a willing one, and was fonght to a finish, Berringa winning by the narrow majority of 2 points. Tom Gallavan captained Berringa, and Norman Carnegie had charge of Scarsdale, and who, having won the toss, elected to take advantage of the westerly wind blowing across the oval. They forced the play, and shortly aftor the bounce of the ball a Berringa player was too affection ate by embracing Carnegie, who was awarded a free kick. He eBsayed a "placer" for the goal posts, bnt the sphere fell short. He soon got the ball again, and made an attempt to sc...
The Bright Side. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 6 June 1914
The Bright Side. A lady residing in a quiet village in Suffolk used to take an interest in a very aged couple who were spinning out the last thread of life in "Darby and Joan" fashion, seated on either side of the fireplace. She often paid them a friendly visit to cheer them up. The old man had been ailing, and at last a day came when the visitor found only one chair occupied. Darby was not in his usual place. "Where is your husband?" "Well, mum, he be gone at last." . "Oh, I'm sorry. That is very. 6ad. for you," .said the lady, seeking, to find some words of consolation. "Yes, mum, it he said," replied the old woman; "but then, you see, he were, fearfully -in the ■ way of : the oven."' .' , An. obstinate man is any man who doesn't think as we do.
TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 6 June 1914
TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. Hundreds of-calves die-every year from one cause or auothor, and very olten the farmer is at a loss to kno« the cause o£ death. Practical experi ence counts all the time. Mr. J. A. Bird, of Duranbox, Tweed River, N.S.W., is a dairy farmor who, when a ojUf dies, wants to know the reason why. He had some calves die. He opened the stomach of one and found a hard mass of hair like a piece of felt and about the size of a tennis ball, which had collected through the calves sucking the ears of each oth er at feeding time, which is a com mon practice among young calves. Mr. Bird tried many means ot prevention, and finds that a small quantity of fresh cow manure mixed with separ ated milk, and allowed to stand in the sun all day before being rubbed on the ears and bellies of the calves at feeding time completely breaks the bad habit.
Why He Wilted. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 6 June 1914
Why He Wilted. "Wilt tliou take lier for thy part, for better or for worse, to have, to hold, to fondly guard, till hauled off in a hearse? "Wilt thou let her have her way, consult her many wishes; make the fire every day, and help her wash the dishes? "Wilt thou give her all the money her little purse will pack; 'buy a iboa and a muff, and a little sealskin eacque? "Wilt thou comfort and support her father and mother, Aunt Mary, Uncle Ed., three sisters, and a brother?" • The poor man's face grew pale and blank. It was too late to jilt. As through the chapel floor he sank, he sadly said, "I wilt."
VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 6 June 1914
VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." Large crops are not always profit able crops, and the finest looking ani mal does not always give the largest net return. For generations we have been taught and urged to grow bigger crops, unmindful o£ the relation of in creased cost to increased production. The value of increased production al ways depends upon whether or not It is economically secured, i.e., upon whether the margin of profit an acre is increased or not. Another important factor always to be kept in mind is the relation which any part of the farm enterprise bears to tho whole. A crop judged by it self might be profitable and yet the system might be unprofitable. For example, timothy hay might prove a good crop in any one year, or even two or three years, but eventually the yield must decline, because a system of farming with this crop alone would not be likely to maintain fer tility, so that the system could not be called profitable. On the other hand, | clover might not prove to be a mo...

HOW TO FILE AND SET A SAW. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 6 June 1914
HOW TO1 FfLE AND SET A-SAW, ! When Dan Rice invented the fa mous joke about "the greatest saw- to saw that I^e-ever saw," certainly the saw that he .saw saw bore no sort of resemblance to many of the saws which wesee saw. Saws-that saw one s nerves as well as' the timber screeching and gnawing through wood' instead of cutting it smoothly, and sweetly—that make one's back ache to witness their operation, and heart ache to witness the useless expendi ture of p&lt;lwer and labor in much of the work-performed by this useful and, whop properly made, filed, and set, most1'effective tool. A saw is a series of cutters, ar ranged either in one line or in two lines, according to the work to be per formed; and all saws used in wood work (anfl it is such of which we speak) may be included in two classes —those w ich cut across the grain and those r>vhich cut lengthwise of the grain. Tlip. latter class has its teeth or cuL-crs' formed so as most to re semble a narrow chisel or plane b...
THICK OR THIN SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 6 June 1914
THICK OR THIN SOWING. The quality of seed which should be sown depends on a number o£ cir cumstances, such as character of the soil, its moisture, freedom from weeds, size, germinating power, age of the seed, and again on the time of sowing, the nature of the plant, method of sowing, depth, etc. All theBe factors have to be considered; but in general we think it may be said that seed is sown more often too thickly than the reverse, especially when the operation is performed by hand. It is a waste of seed, and, moreover, detrimental in so far as it tends to produce weakly plants, sub ject to disease, and also to produce cereals that "lodge," a great source of loss to cereal growers. The age of the seed is an important factor. Old seed has lost some of its germinating power, so new seed should be used. ' Grouchy Parent: No, sir, my daugh ter shall not marry you! Suitor: But your daughter wishes to, sir, and she told me just now that you would deny her nothing. Grouchy Parent: That, si...
ROKEWOOD JUNCTION. SCHOOL CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 6 June 1914
ROKEWOOD JUNCTION. SCHOOL CONCERT. Absolutely 'ha heat entertainment given at the Junction was the un animous expression made _ by the large gathering that patronised the State School ent-r ainment given on Friday evening in the Mechanics Hall. There was »•» dull motony abont the items presented : they w re bright, breezy, varied. For the children to havo attained fluch a hi«h degree of efficiency rsvealed the master minds and hands behind the scones; and to the head teacher, Mr Norman McHutchison; his tal ented and versatile wife; and the lifted school stall', can be attributed the greatest eulogy. Mr D. Poynton was the chairman, and it was little wonder he expressed himself as being highly pleased to be present amongst such a happy, bright, and intelligent young family of enter tainers. The programme was a long one, but the audience wa* so cap tivated by the excellence of the items that, heedless ^of Time they yearned for more, bi capably did the whole of the children acqmt themse...
