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

BROODING NYOUN GCHICKS. IIi brooding young chicks the lirst tlhing to do is to sterilise the brooder thoroughly to be sure that all disease germs are killed before it is hlaccru up. Then put in a layer of old news paipers atthe bottom. This will make the brooder easier to clean out. Over the paper pitaihalf' an inch of sand, chlat or cut clover. 'This will help to nmak?e the brodder' floor warmer- and keep the chicks'' feet warner; also, as the. chicks' legs are weak, they will. not slip so nucii and gCt out o01 slnal?e as they would on papor alone. It is. time enougu to heat iap the brooder whien the eggs begin to hatch. The Ineat wants to be evenly distribut ed so that thero will be no cold cor ners, as theii the chicks may crowd one another in trying to avoid them. The temperature should be up to 90 dog. beiore the chicks -are placed in tie brooder, and should be kept there the first week, for the little chick then has a change from 102 deg. or more in the incubator down to 90 de...

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

WHY SAP RISES. The "Strand" contains an important contribution from Mr, John J. Ward and Mr George S. Heaven on "The Mystery of the Sap." The article is illuminated by reproductions of micro scopic sections and photos of experi ments which reveal some of the mys 'erious processes of. nature. The writers are most painstaking in their explanations of the long standing problem:--Hop the raw sap travels from the absorbing roots beneath the ground to the topmost twig on an oak or elin tree, more than one hundred feet above, and to cariy four or five times thlt height in the case of some. of the mammoth gum trees (oucalyp tus) of the Tasmanian forests, and in the gigantic Wellingtonia of Califor nia, has long puzzled the physicist to explain. The old idea that capillarity is the factor at work, the fluid being nu'reyed up the trunk and branches after the manner of oil through the wick of a lamp, becomes an altogether inadequate explanation. The microscope reveals the existence of minute h...

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

NECESSITY OF GRIT. One of the secrets of suoc ssful poul try-keeping is to feed the birds so that they obtain all'the nourisiihmnt possible from their food, and this is accomplish od by giving them ample supply of g..t, which is really hard and sharp red crushed, (or broken ) flint or qu.rtz answers both requirements more satis factorily than any other material, as it lasts longer and does its work mere thoroughly than any other. A supply of grit should bh kept in a. trough in the run for the birds to Eo'p themselves to, and once a week a tea spoonful for each bird can he added to the soft food. This usually prevents the possibility of internal stoppage, but any slight derangement in this direction should be treated by giving each hen a teaspoonful of warmed castor oil two hours afterwards. and the male birds should have rather'm'ore. than these quantities. The bottle containing the oil should be placed in :a basin of hot water after removing the cork, so that the contents man becom...

A Boon to Athletes. Found Comstock's Nerve and Bone Liniment most Effective for Strained Muscles and Bruises. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 27 March 1914

A Boon to Athletes, Found Comstock's Nerve and Bone Liniment most Effective for Strained Muscles and Bruises. The- powerful, penetrating qual ities of Comstock's Nerve and Bone Linfi?ent snake it invaluable for a strained muscle or Bruise. Applied according to directions, it very soon reduces a swelling from whatever caused. "Being unfortunate at various times," writes Mr E. A. Lang, of "Oxford," Wollongong-road, Arn cliffe, "to meet with several bruises and overstrain of muscle, sufficient to render me incapable of fulfilling my ordinary duties' with satisfac tion, I used only one bottle of Com stock's Nerve and Bone Liniment on each occasion, and was able to continue work very quickly after wards. On one important occasion I was kicked by a horse on the thigh, and though the bruise was very painful, causing a slight lame ness, only half a bottle of Liniment was necessary to give relief, and in a few days 1 was well again. As a boon to athletes and skaters, for bruised limbs, strai...

A HOMB-MADE HAIR GROWER That Does Marvels. During, the last few; years an n6uncements. have appeared occa sionally telling how to make a really good hair tonic that would actually make the hair grow, and it gives us great pleasure to learn that so many who have.. tried it have obtained such remarkable results. One lady writes that immediately after read ing the formula, she went to her chemist and had him put up as di rected, 1 ounce of Lavona de Com posee, { dram Menthol Crystals, and 3 ouncee Bay Rum. She took this home and, although her. hair had been falling out terribly and she had been threatened with baldness, she was astonished and delighted to note that the falling out of the hair stopped immediately, and the hair itself began to grow in an amazing manner. In fact, she states that it has already grown nearly- 8 inches in a little over two months. More over, her hair is now brighter, glos siei, and more luxuriant than ever and is still 'growing.

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

CANADA'S WHEAT CROP. "Canada this year hirs a record wheat crOp," says tho London Daily Tele graph. 'Competent authorities esti mate the wheat yield of the three pra rio provinces at 200,000,000 bushels. Mr. R. Rogers, Minister for Public Works, who has just completed a tour of the Dominion, asserts that the crop, as regards both quantity and quality, will be the best ever harvested. This is confirmed in a statement issued by the Minister for the Interidr, to the effect that the crop in Manitoba, where threshed, has exceeded by, two or three bushels per acre the most generous estimates, and all the wheat threshed so far is of No. 1 grade.' At the annual meeting of the Grain Exchange in Winnipeg, Mr. Andrew Kelly, the president, estimated that the farmers would net something like £34,000,000. The new crop has silenued the pessim ists, and is giving the country a new push forward." The "Nuovo Giornale" announces that the plan for the reform of the Pope's Swiss Guard has been decided u...

.A DYSPEPTIC'S LIFE SAVED. Severe Pain and Sickness for Many Years Cured by a Simple Antacid. Neighbors said he was a Dying Man. Chronic Indigestion and Sickness after food and severe pains were,all quickly cured by a very simple re medy in the case of Mr'R. Savigan, 11 tloucester btreet,. Barnardtown, Nevport, Mon. In a letter referr ing to her husband's illness, Mrs Savigan writes:-"He did not know what it was to eit a meal without it coming back," which appears to have been his condition for a con iiderable time, until his wife, while readiig a ladies' paper, saw ordin ary bisurated magnesia recommend ed for indigestion, and obtained a small quantity so that her husband might try it. A few doses gave Mr Savigan great relief, and before he had finished the first supply the tr'ouble was practically cured.

CahioUc iFederation The second annual report of the Victorlano branch of the Australian Catholic Federation has been issued by the State council. It shows that 356 branches of the Federation have been formed in Victoria, with about 0Uuu workers as members of the Branch Councils. Over 40,000 members were enrolled during last year. Prominence is given in .the report to the education questioni, in connection with which public meet ings have been held in all the im portant centres throughout Victoria. 100,000 copies of a leaflet dealing with the question have been dis tributed.

THE HOLSTEIN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 April 1914

THE HOLSTEIN. J'lhere are several distinct groups .t Dutch cattle-namoely, the Friesian. the Black and VWhite Holland, the. Bl:wk White-lhad Groningen, and the Red white Meuse-Rhine-Yssel groups. In some of the best herds the average an niual yield is stated to be 860 gallons and over, including heifers with first calves. Older oows are said to give 1300 gallons, and the fat percentage ;s estimated at from 3 to 5 per cent. Among the dairying herds of America the Holstein ranks only second to the Jersey. It is the largest of thle dairy breeds, and the colour mnarkings .are variegated black asd white, there ieing a preference, as a rule, for animals on which the two colours are about evenly divided. These colours are - never blended, but always sharply defined. The cows are live-oly, nd have plenty of nervous energy, which is so essential a chiaracteristio in any dairy lirf"ed; but unlike the highly-developed Jersey, they are at the same tinm ~'cry tract able, and sudden disturbances ...

The Military Camp. A FEW OBSERVATIONS (Written expressly for the EXPRESS) [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 April 1914

The Military Camp. A FEW OBSERVATIONS (Written expressly for the 'ExPRss) There are three essentials in the life of a soldier'; vi.--' application, self-denial and discipline." These three special features are duly ob served and brought into prominence at .the MVilitary Camp at Seymour. The leading trait in the life of the great Napoleon was his observance of order and detail. He once said to one of his guards by way of a mild reprimand-" The report sent me is not clear. I.do not see the position of Gen. Gardenne's division nor his force. This carelessness will at last damage the administra tion of the at my and destroy its discipline. Send me perfectly accu rate returns. When they are sent to me 1 give up every occupation to read them in detail, and to ob serve the difference between one monthly return and another. No young girl enjoys her novel so mnuch as 1 enjoy these returns" That is the tis imony of one of the most brilliant military genius that ever lived. On another occasion...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 April 1914

OF OfRURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") The inspection of the beet aeicas at Boisdale and Maffra snowed that the crops are substantilly better than thoso of Kilmany. Tie c'lops are esti mated to yield up to filteen tons to the acro. Since the water was supplied some weeks after the plants had re ceived a check, it as clear that had the irrigation started at tho right time, the output of the roots would have been well over twenty tons to the acre. If the irrigation facilities had been avial able, so that the beet areas could have received their first watering at the end of November, instead of two months later, there would be no com plaints to-day as to the returns from sugar beet culture. On the contrary, the remunerative yields would have proved so encouraging that there would been an anxiety to increase ratheor than reduce the area under this crop. The courtast between areas that have been assisted in this crude manner and those which have not been irrigated at all is most marked. In...

Inter-Lodge Rifle Shooting. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 April 1914

Inter-Lodge Rifle Shooting. Shooting has been fairly quiet during the week, the only match fired since our last issue being be tween the M.U.I.O.O.F. and I.O.O.F. There was a fair attend ance of onlookers, but as the M.U. had the best of the scoring from the start, the interest was not so keen as usual. r Shooting on for the in dividual prize at the close Lade, of the M.U., scored 25. The scores were : McIntosh ... 24 Wales ... 23 Owens ... 24 Russell ... 23 Chittick ... 24 Currie ..... 22 Henderson 23 Ritchie ... 22 T. Luke ... 22 M'Keddie 22 W.

Mr Smith, secretary bf the Asso ciation, has entered a protest against the Hibernians using the Fire Brigade rifle. Provided the latter club has no objection, we fail to see any reason for Mr Smith's action. If the pattern of the rifle is permitted by the association, its ownership is of no consequence.
