Cadets' Football Competition. Queenscliff (7-4) Beat Geelong (6-7.) A Good Game. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914
Cadets' Football Com petition. Queenscliff (7-4) Beat Geelong (6-7.) A Good Game. The match between the above teams resulted in one of the best games played by Cadets this season, there being only 3 points difference at the close of the game. The locals led in every quarter except three-quarter time, when Geelong took the lead by 3 points, which lead they kept until 2 minutes before the final bell, when Burns scored a fine goal for the young squids, giving them a victory by the small margin of three points. For the winners everybody did well, and it is hard to pick out the stars, although WVard, Patching, Keath,i L. Stephens, and Burns played excellent football, while the losers had good players, such as Harvey, Bell, Jones, Kelly and Black. The umpiring of Edmondson was a great improvement on the usual standard cf umpiring, and he kept the lads well in hand. At jthe respective quarter times the scores were as follows: First quarter: Cliff ' ... 2 gls 1 - bhd Geelong... 2 bhds Secon...
BORACIC ACID. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914
;,g,? Bot?ic-IC ?arTl-. - Formerly all the boracic4 or ~*l~se, acid of commerce was obtained from borax by heating it with' calcined ferrous sulphate in closed vessels; whereby sodoforic acid was formed; and boracic acid was carried on with the watery vapours, which escaped. This was a long and tedious pro ?ess, and not much progrees was made until it was discovered that boracic acid could be obtained from the boiling springs and jets of va pour in Tuscany. Long after the dis covery of boracic acid in these springs, the brilliant idea struck the physicist as well as the chemist to nmploy the heat of the natural iteam jets. This method had the ef fect of eodverting an unprofitable branch of industry into one of the unost successful. The lagoons are situated near the top of one of the highest hills. As the volcanic vapours pass through the waters of the lagoons the.boracic Lcid is arrested by the water, which becomes. impregnated with it. In Dalifornia it occurs as the mineral ;assoli...

THE DAIRY EXPERIMENTS WITH CREAM SEPARATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914
THE DAIRY EXPERIMENTS WITH CREAM SEPARATORS. The general opinions held with re gard to speed and temperature dur ing the employment of separators have been put to test at the Experi mental Sta.tion of the University of Missouri. The experimnnts showed that an increase in the speed of a separator leads to a higher propor tion of skimmed milk and to a. high er percentage of fat in the cream, and, within ordinary limits, the higher the speed the less is the amount of fat remaining in the skim med milk. It is further declared that, con trary to general belief, a reduction in the temperature of the milk oc casions a higher proportion of skim med milk. and a small amount of cream with a higher percentage of fat. The effect is said to be still fur ther emphasised when the separator is adjusted to deliver cream with a high fat content. A third conclusion which the in vestigators adduced was that the amount of fat in cream varies in di rect proportion to the composition of the milk. The rati...
THE POULTRY FARM. SOME USEFUL HINTS. FOOD FOR LAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914
THE- POULTRY FARM. ------+-- SOME USEFUL HINTS. FOOD FOR LAYERS. Mr. D. S. Thompson who conducts the Hawkesbury. egg-laying competi tions, says that cut-up liver used to be fed to the fowls at different times of the day, and by itself, in the earl ier competitions. It has now been found. that by mincing the liver into a fine meal it can easily be mixed with the morning mash. In this form it adds a zest to the food that the hens greatly appreciate. Mr. Thompson adds that the. lay ing 'tests have demonstrated the ab solute necessity of furnishing green ,food, and the best of this is un doubtedly lucerne. CHOOSING A BROODER. In selecting a brooder, preference should be given to those makes that provide three compartments, though the two-compartment type proves successful during the latter part of the season. After using practically every form of individual outdoor brooder, I have come to the conclu sion that there is very little to choose between the hot-air and the hot-water pipes. Pe...
MILKING MACHINE TESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914
MILKING MACHINE TESTS. Bulletin 353 of the New York Ex periment Station at Geneva reports extended tests of the efficiency of the milking machine compared with hand milking ; and finds that it does not measurably influence the yield of milk. That is, cows in the station herd milked alternately by hand and by the machine in 71 full lactation periods showed no more fluctuation in 3ield due to the method of milking than would naturally occur from year to year in a herd milked continuous ly by hand. As the station has already proved that clean milk can be produced by the. machine if simple precautions are ob served, the use or non-use of the*: machine would seem to benmerely an economic question whose factors are: cost of installation and up-keep, availability and cost of labour, size" of herd and general convenience. The bulletin does not discuss many. of these factors, but gives some care fully collected data regarding the time necessary in milking by the two methods, figures which sh...
ARBOR DAY. PICNIC, SPORTS AND TREE-PLANTING. SUCCESSFUL CELEBRATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914
ARBOR DAY. PICNIC, SPORTS AND: TREE-PLANTING. SUCCESSFUL CELEBRATIONS Arbor day for Queenscliff was celebrated on Wednesday, at the local State school. The weather was fine, but a strong cold wind blew during the day. Over two hundred scholars and parents at tended, together with several townspeople and clergy. Prior to the planting of the trees, which Mr Hughes humorously classed as 'Arbor Day,' the children and friends gathered in the main room, where addresses, songs and reci tations were given. Cr W. J. Thwaites, chairman of school committee,, presided, and gave an interesting address to open the proceedings. Cr Thwaites re &nbsp; ferred to his early school days, which he classed as his best days. A lot of time seemed to be wasted of late by planting the wrong kind of tree, but this year the cyprus was to be planted, which would suit the climate. The speaker had a number of specimens of Australian timber and explained how they were vastly used, even in Queens cliff. Cr T...

ALL IN VAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 July 1914
ALL IN VAIN. ; A young couple had taken a house in an exclusive neighbourhood, and wished to make a good impression at the very beginning of their social ca reer. They were handicapped, how ever, by the diffculty of securing good servants. They finally secured one, Norah, a very recent arrival from County Kerry, but the best they could fred. This maid's duty was to answer the front door-bell and carry the cards of any visitors to her mis tress. She was rehearsed repeatedly in her role, her mistress telling her exactly what to say and how to carry her silver salver, but, in spite of the training, Norah's. mistress awaited the hour of her first dinner party with trepidation, and at the first sound of the door-bell she could not' resist the impulse to listen at the. head of the stairs. Norah rushed to the door excitedly, without her salver, but as she opened it and saw visitors standing there, she recollected her instructione, and, throwing up her hands, exclaimed, in a voice of heartb...

Queenscliff (5-15) Beat Artillery (6-7) Another Thrilling Contest. Bad Feeling Prevails. Sensational Finish. Both teams journeyed to the Port on Saturday last to try conclusions when those present were accorded another good contest, but not with out a little ill feeling, which was the outcome of determination on the part of both sides to score a vic tory, aided by a poor display of umpiring. Both teams were eager from the start and matters be came more exciting. Play was fairly even throughout and the Cliff team eventually ran out winners by the narrow margin of 2 points. Ex citement prevailed during the clos ing minutes. Queenscliff overtook their opponents' lead in an excite ment manner. . Final seores: Cliff ... 5 gls 15 bhds Artillery ... 6 gls 7 bhds Watkins as field utihpire was a failure. For the winners, Knight, Wool ford, Aiken and Hewitson; while MacLear, Maine, Edwards, Morri son and Thompson tried hard to avert defeat.

SOME PLEASANT TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 July 1914
SOME PLEAaNIT TATTLE. "Some men," says a writer in a. home journal, in disclosing 'tricks' of the l furnishing trade, 'can take new furniture and make it look as if it was. made a century ago.' But there is nothing remarkable in this. An intelligent' child, can do the same. "I .believe," says Mr. William Poei, "that in 8 years Mr. Bernard Shaw's writings will still interest people." Mr. Shaw himself, however regard! Mr. Poel's estimate as an absurdly moderate one. "All a woman asks is to be loved," i says a poet. Then all those tales about her wanting new frocks, motors cars, and unlimited jewellery \are a vile slalder. "Take away woman," says an ar dlent ''votes-for-women" supporter ik an of the dailies, "and what would follow ?" Why, man, of course.

Portarlington (2-7) Beat Engineers (2-4) Close and Exciting Finish. Safe Chance of Victory Lost. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 July 1914
Portarlington (2-7) Beat Engineers (2.4) Close and Exciting Finish. Safe Chance of Victory Lost. The above match took place on the local ground on Saturday last. There was only a small attendance at the start, but when the prob ability of the game being a good contest became known a large gathering assembled to witness the finish. Ports were without the services of most of their leading players, whose places were filled with juniors, and these justified their inclusion. Engineers opened with a breeze in their favor, but failed to make best use of it, scoring two points against Ports one goal. Engineers scored a goal against the breeze, while in this quarter Ports failed to score more than a poifit. The third quarter was like others; evenly contested. Each side scored a goal,while the visitors added four behinds. No goals were scored in the last quarter, though one might have been secured by the 'magpies' had it not been for over anxiety. The whole game was even and was fought strenu...
