A HUGE PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 14 May 1914
A HUGE PROFIT. I I Sir James Yoxall tells, in his new book about collecting, another story of a collector's handsome profit ' "A bookseller purchased for £200 | the MS. of one 01 Dickens' best works. I For a long time that interesting manu I script, had lain neglected. I am told that it had been left on the mantel ' piece of an empty house formerly in habited by a person connected with Charles Dickens in business. The bookseller tried to sell it for £500, and failed; £400, and failed; £300, and failed. "A few years latsr, having to meet a sudden demand for cash, he parted with the MS. for the sum he gave lor it, £200. The purchaser at that | price kept the MS. for some yearn, un til one morning a bookseller, the agent of a now famous but at that lime unknown collector of rarities, came to the owner of the MS. and of fered to buy it. "'My price is £2000,' said the owner. A cheijue was written on the spot."

RUSINESS-UKS WOMAN. (A claim is put forward in one of the dailies that girls arc more alert in money multers than men.) Nona is what you call a bachelor girl. Slit: has a little money, and enough self-confidence to float a bat tleship- -or any other liLtle trick that self-confidence comes in useful for. The oilier day 1 called oil Nona with a pair of gloves she .said she had won over some trivial dispute of ours. ?Shi' was reading a paper with every appearance of saiisfaeiion. "ilello!" she said, from the sofa, "you don't mean to say you've remeni li..red the skives at last?" She put down ,he paper thoughtfully. "It's (julie I rue," she added.

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 14 May 1914
Have youBtried it ? The greatest profit-maker on the farm is not tlio wheat crop, even though every available aero bo SOWM to tliat cereal; it is not flax, though a 20-lmshel oroi) wore to sell for two dollars a bushel: it is not Income, the kinc of grasses, it is not the dairy row with her sleok coat and liquid evos; nor is it the Riant tractor, doing the work of twenty horses. Tho greatest money-maker on tho farm is a two cent. lead pencil worn down to a mere stub in tho process of calculating just whoro tho money went, and what for ; just where the money came in, how much, and what part of the income remains as profit. Havo you this kind of n money-maker on your farm, and is it working ovory day? A motlior led her six childron to the apple tree.

When to water Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 14 May 1914
When to water Horses. A horao should bo watered bit >. 1 feeding, and never given a huge &lt;jii.;i tity of water after a meal, far tl e simple reason that the water wi'l wa ll tho food out of the stomach before stomach-digestion has taken place. ami tho food will not he well prepared to; absorption; and, besides, it is seme times tho cause of colic. Thero is a populai idea that a warm horso should not he allowed to drink, nnd, unliko a groat many other popu lar ideas, thero is little truth in it. If you water a warm horse in tho or dinary way, letting him drink all that I10 will, you are likely to have a foundered horse 011 your hands. Thi is especially so if, at the time, !he horso is fatigued. Nevertheless, it. i^ always safe to allow him from six t 1 ton swallows, 110 matter how warm ho is. If this bo given on going into tin' stable, and he be allowed to stand and eat bay for an hour, and is then offer ed water, ho will not drink nearly so much as ho would had none be...

JvxperieiKv lias shown the benefit of early plough ing by exposing the soil to the inllti enee of air, moisture, sunlight and frost, for a short time before the land is finally piepnrcd fur the seed lied.

Good and Bad Pasture. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 14 May 1914
Good and Bad Pasture. In any stretch of country 0110 pas ture establishes a reputation as good fattening land, whilo another is known as oJily lit to carry storo stock 01 lambing ewes. The reason for those differences is often hard to trace. In the liomsey district of Kugland thero occur fields of permanent pasture ca llable of fattening six or eight sheep to the acre, while immediately adjoining may be found others of apparently the same character, which will only keep sheep in growing condition. In tile "Jour. Agric. Soi.", June, 1912, Mr. A. D, Uall, and Dr ltussell, of JRotli ainsted, describe some investigations on this subject. They compared a good with .-in adjoining bad-feeding "pasture at three stations. At each place both pastures were situated in Hat silt land, and appeared to have been formed in the same nay. There was no regular difference in the water content, of the good and bad soils, and temperature differences were small. The ordinary chemical and mechanical analys...
