Visit of the Governor ENTERTAINED IN SEYMOUR Yesterday the Governor Sir Arthur Stanley, accompanied by Captain C B. Wilson, A.D.C., passed through Seymour on their way to the military camp on Trawool road. With that courtesy and attachmient to the throne which is a conspicuous feature of the Sey mour. Shire Council, the President (Cr Howe) embraced the oppor tunity of welcoming His Excel lency as he was passing through the town. Every preparation was made to render the Vice-regal visit as pleasant as possible. The streets were watered which had the effect of keeping down the dust in front of the Royal Hotel, and making the temperature feel cooler. At the Royal Hotel the councillors assembled to greet His Excellency on arrival, which was fixed for 12.30. Butreven Governors ,annot fortell what may happen, and owing to the vice-regal car meeting with a mishap the party did not arrive till 2 p.m. The breakdown occur red at Warren.

Avenel. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

Avenel. From our own Correspondent. In ordinary circumstances one of the nicest drives in the district is the road to Locksley, -but Messrs Dixon and Stork had the misfortune on Sunday last to strike a stump on the track, and were consequenly capsived. Neither of the young men I am glad to state were hurt, but the gig did not fair too well. The stumps along this road in parts are rather dangerous Whilst driving home from a fishing excursion one night last week, the horse be:ame a bit restive, and breaking the harness bounded away, leaving the sur prised occupants of the vehicle (iMr Spark and party) in complete possession of the roadway. As the party included two ladies, the awiab'e brothers entered the shafts and negotiated the rest of the journey "home" fashion. Needless to say, the ladies greatly enjoyed their novel experience. The Church of England residents are jubilant that their Church is completed and will be dedicated on Wednesday by His Lordship Bishop Armstrong. The edifi...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

IMELBOURiFE LETTE' It came .as a shUCe to probably !!g" psr cent., of married women to read the other -tnrnig that in having pro rnised at the altar, or in the best room of their parents house, or wherever the most interesting ceremonv in which t'ty have taken part was performed, to nbey their husbands, they had laid 2: -!eves open to the- accusations handed out with breath-suspending free dor by a.dyv sp-'aker.s at a meeting of It!;: VWcmnen's Political Association the previous evening. The lady speakerc proved to their own satisfaction, and presumablyl to that of the reform ea: t!mtxsiasts who formed their audience, that th? word "obey" in th!e marr!ng! s- rvice was degrading to-both hu-band and wife: that it it was at the root of every insult and injury to the coum munity; that it made out man to be a tyrant, woman a slave, and gave the chilld v\;ron vi ews of married life; in short it was a disgrace to civilisatioi. In some occult way one or the f:.ir denunciators found that tih...

THE FOWL TICK. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

THE FOWL TICK. Circular No. 170, of the Bureau oi Enutomology of the United States De partment of Agriculture deals with the iowl tick. The author states that the earliest record of the occurrenes of the :owl tick in America was published in 1;72, and le is of opinioa that the pest is practical!y identical with the Persian ivl tick. "At the present time it does its ?iost scrimus harm in Texas and other southern and western warm por tiors of the United States. The tick is known to be a serious enemy to poul try in Persia, India, Southern-Russia, i:oumania, North and South Africa, Australia, West Indi!s, Mexico, Pana ma, and iBrazil, and although the do ma:.:iio fIc: is the animal most frequ ently attacked, turkeys, geese, pigeons, estris es, and even canaries have been lknown o suffer from its attacks. The loss ccasioned by the creature is pro duced in several ways. First, death may- result among poultry of all ages, second, the vitality of the fowl may be lowered so as to make it su...

FEEDING DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

S-FEEDING DAIRY COWS. The English Field says:--The increas ed prominence that is given to the ques tion of feeding dairy cows is indioative of the growing importance of dairy firim ing and of the closer adtention that i. devoted to economy in production. The experiments carried out at the agricul tural colleges, and particularly at the Armstrong the Wye, and the Ihu.per Adams Colleges. havoi ntensified, if they did not actually 'originate, the wider intere,: that is now manifested ;1 this' subject. It is evideint that the teaching r:f the college experiments has not been ig nored north of the Tweed. The Scot tish farmer is no exception in that he does not change his methods quickly or without a prospect of resulting benefit; but like his. neighbors in the South, he is eager to discover a means ' econo mising expenditure and augu-senting income. While he does-not put aside the plans evolved from long exper.ence, under the peculiar conditions of he holding, he is ever. on the look-out...

MOTOR-DRIVEN ROAD BUILDER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

MOTOR-DRIVEN ROAD BUILDER. A self-propelled road-building ma chine has been tested in Los Angeles with results that are said to be highly satisfactory from the standpoints of of ficiency and economy. The engine which does all the work is a slx-cylin der, distiliate burning gas engine of 80 horse power, which operates a series of bucket chains that dig thle soil to any depth to eighteen inches, and the tooth armed-buokes are so powerful that they will cut through a finished pavement if it L? desired to rebuild old streets. The earth is picked up by these buc lkets, carried to a mixer in the body of the machine, and thoroughly com bined with any desired binder, hot asphaltum or crude oil, and is then spread evenly and rolled, all in one operation. A trailer containing the binder follows the machine, and it is necessary to have a string of them in readiness as the device operates with great speed. The earth is dug up, mixed, relaid and rolled at the rate ot fifty square feet a minute f...

WATER REQUIREMENTS IN PLANTS. (W. C. Palmer, Agri. Editor, N. Dak. Agri. College.) [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

WATER REQUIREMENTS IN PLANTS. (W. C. Palmer,.Agri. Editor, N. Dak. Agri. College.) Different crops require different am ounts of water. These amounts also vary for each crop under different cli matio conditions: A knowledge of these water requirements of the differ ent crops may-in a measure serve as a guide in selecting the ones best adapt ed to certain sections. . Briggs and Shant of the Bureau of Plant Industry, Washington, D.C., have carried on in vestigations in the water requirements of different crops at Akron, Co!o., and at Amarillo and Dalhart, Texas, in 1910 and 1911. The results of these experiments are given in Bulletin No. 284, Bureau of Plant Industry. The average-of these experiments are as fol lows:-Pounds water required to pro duce a pound of dry matter (whole plant) --millet 275, sorghum 306, pig weed 275, tumble weed 277, Russian thistle 336, corn 369, sugar beet 377, rape 441. potatoes 448, wheat 507, bar ley 539, bgokwheat 578, oats 614, sweet clover 709, field ...

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

TURF TOPICS. (By "Flemington.") It has been pointed out in 'the city press that Iowopt's owner received more money in stakes for tho NeWmarket Handicap (six furlongs), than Radnor earned in his three successes over a distance, in which he covered in all 6( miles! At the risk of being taxed witli harping too much on the same thing, one is.tempted to ask, by what process of reasoning; can this apparent discrepancy be justified? It is due, of course, to the V It.C. programme com mittee to say that, taking the season all through, sprinting is not unduly en couraged at Flemington. We should be especially thankful that at "head quarters" the "limit" is six furlongs except wlhen two-year-olds are concern ed. Still, it seems most unfair that a mere sprintler in the Autumn can gan more money in a six furlongs dash than is allotted a true stayer like Itadnor for winning three races,; in each of which courage and endurance as well as pace, was needed. W\iile on this subject, it is gratify ing ...

HEAIRD DOUBLE. A lanky reountry youth entered the cross-roads general store to order some grooeries. He was thirteen years old, and was passing through that stage of adolescence during which n boy smcnis all hands and feet, and his vo 5i'[ organs, rapidly developing, are went to cause his voico to undergo sidrlen and involuntary changes from high treble to low bass. In ali authoritative rumbling bass Ir dtmmn:dcd of bhe busy shopkeeper, "Give me a bushel of corn"; then. his voice suddenly ehanging to a shrill falsetto. he cutinued, "and a s~ek of flour." "Well, don't he in a hurry. I can'l wait on both ol you at once," soap the man.

HARNESSING THE TIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

HARNIESSING THE TIDE. The energy of the tides utilised in scientific manner, says the "Satur 'lay Evening Post," is a new threaten ed competitor of coal. Whether the tide is high or low, the new plant~, will work without interruption; so they show about as much adavance over the old tidal water-wheels strung along the Atlantic Coast as the mod ern hydro-electric plant does over the old ,grist-mill wheel. There is a plan on foot to build immediately at Hu sum, Germany, a tidal power-plant of this new order, to compete with coal energy. It is to develop by day and night more than six thrusand horse power. Engineers who have looked into the subject think it entirely like ly that this experiment will show that electricity can be generated more cheaply on many coasts than by ooal plants at present coal prices. At Husum it has been found that the normal difference between high tide and low tide is ten feet and 85 hundredths. Tides are often much higher than that, but the added height is o...

THE SAME OLD PRICE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

THE SAME OLD PRICE. The Rev. Simon Turpie was an elo quent speaker. A young man in the congregation was about to leave for South Africa, but the Sunday before he departed, he attended the Church service. In the course of his lecture. the minister used an illustration in which were the words;-"A man can easily purchase two sparrows for thrte pence." The young man, after being absent for about three years, returned, and again, on the first opportunity. at tended divine service. Strange to say lihe heard the same narrative by the same minister. At the close of the service the minister in his courtesy camne and shoet; hands with the yout. and nasked him if he notioed any chan t.s about the place. The young "mian. eri dently quite unconcerned, replied--"A.ye man, there's two or three cllhages, but there's yin thing I can see, the price o' sparrows is aye at the same old tgger."

SENTIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

SENTIMENT. The sentiment of to-day is sooial and philanthropic. It has no affiliations with art, which stands apart from i.. -a new experience for the world. It dominates periodical" literature, minor verse and serious fiction; but it has to far given nothing of perna?nen:t value to letters. It is strong politically, and is echoed from many par,-' platforms. It is sure of a hearing, and it is held too sacred for assault. It is a force to be reckoned with, and to be control led. It is capable of rai-ing us to a better and clearer visito, or rf weaken ing our judgement aed shattering our common sense. If we value our safety, we must forever bear in mind t!:::t sentiment is a subjective and a paerseal thing. However exalted and hoe ,,cr ardent it cannot be accepted ao a weight for justice, or as a test for truth.-Agnes Repplier in the Atlrh tic Monthly."

The Minister of Agriculture for New South Wales is in receipt of a oommu nication from the office of the Trade and immigration Commissioner to' the United States on 'the subject of ship ments of wool from New South Wales to Eastern woollen mills of the States, wherein it is stated that as shipments of wool are arriving in San Francisco d.rect from Sydney for transmission to Eastern mills, it may be interesting to wool' consignors in Australia to know that the Amerioan-Hawaiian Steamship line is prepared to carry wooll from San Franc:sco to New York for 1/103il per 100 lb. Present rates are, via steam ship from Sydney to San Francisco, 3/13d, and rail San Franci:co to Bos ton, 3/4 per 100 lb, or a total of 6/5td.

Terribly Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY ANNABEL GRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

Terribly ' STemptedI A SERIAL STORY BY ' .ANNABEL GRAY. There was a weary mournfulness about the. parted pallihd lips, a hunted tired look upon her face, a sudden shrinking from his gaze that told him all le wanted, to learn: a sudden shrinking, such as an antelope may.feel when a cobra uncoils itself to spring. She could not answer. Why was slr always so- mute before him? What did he mean? What were those in articulate whispers and warnings that made her lips quiver? She pwho had so long hated and despised human be ings; she whose young ignorance and enthusiasm, and latent genius made her so' many-sided in character and mood, she trembled now; physical helpless ness prostrated her strength as his lips again sought hers. He may have been disappointed in' this siience, expecting some quick, res pensive, girlish avowal. A certain severity stole over his features. After all, who was she, to hold him cheaply l He had his preudioes. He was narrow, too-a little, it may be, common in- his ...

LUCERNE: ALL ABOUT ITS GROWTH AND CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

LUCERNE: ALL ABOUT ITS -GROWTH AND CUL TIVATION. (B) Al. A. O'Callaghan, in "Dairying in Australasia.") With the lapse of time and the ex tension of experimental work, both pri- vate and official, tli fact has been dis closed that succafsfu llucerne culture Ei possible under obnditions previously considered impossibie. No longer is its cultivation confined to the rich allutvial banks, of coastal ris ers, where the rainfall is large, but tsts have proved its adaptability to a wide range of conditionls extending far inland, into districts having a czom paratively light rainfall. It has, therefore,.become an import ant factor in increasing the carrying capacity of large areas of land varying in altitude, quality of soil and rainfall, and where irrigation is available, the certainty of its producing heavy re turns has largely. increased the value of holdings possessing this possibility. Although under "normal inland con-. ditions crops cannot compare with these obtained in the more favo...
