WHERE VICTORIA HAS A CHANCE.. THURLSTONE OPPOSED TO DEL-WOOD AND VEILMOND. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 4 April 1930

WHERE VICTORIA HAS A CHANCE.. THURLSTONE OPPOSED TO DEL WOOD AND VEILMOND. Victoria may have soine difficulty in holding her own in the chief events at the A.J.C. Autumn Meet ing, but in one department, at least, this State will be worthily repre sented* That is among the two year-olds. Our weight-for-age candidate; are negligible. The handicappers are not' much better now, that Caramelo has fallen' from grace.- We have nothing likely to extend fhar ljap in the St. Leger, but certainly Thurl stone will trouble the best ;of the Sydney juveniles in the. Sires; Pro duce Stakes and Champagne Stakes. Besides Thurlstone, Victoria prob ably will be represented in the Sires| Produce Stakes by The Doctor's Or ders, while Uriah Heep and Sir Fran cis may be capable of playing big parts in the minor events. The meeting between Thurlstone, Delwood and Veilmond is likely to provide a. thrilling contest. Not one of them hatf yet been ? unplaced. Thurlstone has raced five times, Veil mon four times...

Brittle Eggs. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 18 April 1930

j Brittle Eggs. j Anyone accustomed to hatching eggs in incubators or under^hens is familiar with the metallic brittle sound the eggs give when knocked or tapped together during the later period of incubation. This is due to two causes — The eggs have steadily lost weight during the period and the shells become thinner. An eggshell is drawn upon by the growing 1 chick for lime to make its bones; the carbon dioxide thrown off by the chick, and the moisture in the air helping this transfer and aiding in the thinning down of the shell. If the shell did not thin down in this way, the chick could not break out ? jof it.

Don't Force Young Stock. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 18 April 1930

Don't Force Young Stock. While all energies are now natur ally centred on getting surplus cock erels ready for market, it should be remembered that breeders next year and pullets for lays should be fed piam, wnoiesome ieea, and not much meatmeal . Nature wants time and her owp. time, and if through an ex cess of forcing feed the growth of young stock is forced, the nerve centres of the reproductive organs are the first to show the ill-effects. Hence we get cockerels ^d(acking in vigor and pullets which suffer from ovarian trouble.

AN AFFAIR OF AGE BY EDWARD WOODWARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 18 April 1930

AN AFFAIR OF AGE BY EDWARD WOODWARD. 'Ailsa was stunned Leeming had brought her the news and added his belief in suicide and the cause thereof. Suicide! . . . Bob's theory tallied with possibility and crushed her. She re called her husband's words: 'It's enough to make a man take his own life. You force me to take matters int. my own hands in order to save your honor and mine!'-' General 'Dashit' Foreman — a partiality for that expletive had given - him his name — had brought hisi young wife Ailsa down to Overcot Court for the shooting. At fifty three the general believed he had good cause for not leaving his' twenty-eight-year-old lady too muchj to her own devices, and now on the) third evening of their visit, just asj Ailsa had finished dressing for din ner, he entered her room through the adjoining door. For a second he paused in silent, almost grudging admiration of her; then his eyes hardened. 'Ailsa,' he said, 'I want to speak to you about young Slaney.' 'What about him?' Lips...

HINTS FOR BREEDERS AND OTHERS. FACTS IN A NUTSHELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 18 April 1930

HINTS FOR BREEDERS AND OTHERS. FACTS IN A NUTSHELL. Many a promising flock has been ruined by continued breeding from pullets alone, with subsequent de generation and loss of size and vigor. I * I The art of breeding high-class I fowls lies more in their rearing to j maturity than most people nnagine. It is unnecessary to 'worry about 1 feeding chicks which hatch out ear lier than the others. A chick, on account of that wonderful provision of Nature's — the absorption of part of the yolk — can go 50 hours or more without feed. An ideal layer has a very bright kindly eye, high up in the skull, and standing well out, so that it is visi ble in front or behind her. * * * * Always put a price against a show exhibit. You never know when a purchaser will come. * * * * The time a chick takes to get out of the shell varies considerably, tak- - ing from one to 24 hours, or more, according to the strength of the i chick, the thickness of the shell and membrane of the egg. * » * % Healthy chick...

HOW OLD ARE NURSERY RHYMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 18 April 1930

HOW OLD ARE NURSERY RHYMES. Some oif our best known nursery rhymes date right back to the seven teenth century, and some were re cited even long before those days. Who would believe that there was any connection between Henry VIII. and the suppression of the monasteries and the nursery rhyme Bo-Peep. But it it is said that when the monks were turned out of the monastries Bo-Peep lost his sheep — that is, the collector of the boo or if tax could no longer find sheep will ing to pay the tax. The children before 1640 evident ly knew the rhyme — If all the world were paper, And all the seas were ink, And all the trees were bread and cheese, What would we have to drink? for it was in that year that it was published in a book of music. Hark, hark, the dogs do bark, The beggars are coming to town, Some in jags, and some in tags, And some with golden crowns, is thought to be a Jacobite rhyme in derision of the House of Hanover and the many folowers who came over with George I. One of the ba...

NOWHERE, SOMERSET. How Would You Like to Live in Rotten End, Ugley Green, or Swineside ? [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 18 April 1930

NOWHERE, SOMERSET. I How Would You Like to Live iq I Rotten End, Ugley Green, '? or Swineside ? ? The people of Bugsworth have just come to a momentous deci sion. After much argument they have decided by a plebis cite to change the name of their villacre to Buxworth. Perhaps the new name is, more re spectable than the old, but it is doubtful if it is so picturesque. And the idea that people were frightened away from the place because of its odd name was probably exaggerated. There is a house in Suffolk which has been known from time immemorial as 'Bug's House,' and its owner re cently stated that he had never found any difficulty in getting a te nant for it — nor had he been trou bled by the sanitary authorities. Still, th re are some ipeople who do object to names of this sort, and no sooner has Bugsworth settled its problem to its own satisfaction than an agitation has been started to change the name of Houndsditch, London, which is now being widened, to something more euphonious....

BLACKENED STEPS ? THE BEAUTY OF STONE UNADORNED. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 18 April 1930

BLACKENED STEPS ? THE BEAUTY OF STONE UNADORNED. Stone steps, stone or mortared window sills, and brick hearths are, by some housewives, subjected to processes designed to renew and beautify, but which really prove de structive to an effect simple and ar tistic. j Stone, in particular, suffers from such ill-advised treatment. There is a rugged charm in the plain, grey | suriace, which, in too many cases, ' fails to be taken into account. I The mistress of the home anxious' to add in every way possible to its attraction, not content with the scrupulous cleanliness resulting from constant 'care, one days makes the dire experiment of painting the stone steps, window sills, and brick hearth, with a black shining sub-! stance comparable in effect only with 1 tar. Immediately a wrong, a most! discordant note, is introduced. That simplicity, resulting so restfully, has vanished. Even the perpetrator ofi tne crime may vaguely feel that re sults do not quite fulfil expectations,! but, where,...

NERVE. I 'What do you think of his nerve?' raved the boss, speaking of a customer. 'Why?' asked his other mate. . 'Well, he called me a bare-faced 1 robber,' continued the boss. 'Well,' replied the other, 'in his excitement, I suppose he never no ticed your moustache.' ! * * * * TRY AGAIN. He declared a man could kiss a gifl whether she willed it or not, while she maintained that it could not be done. Finally, they decided that the only way to settle the argu-, ment was by experimenting. The, man won after a brief struggle, and kissed the girl ardently for several moments; then he released her. 'Oh, well,' said the girl, 'you did not win fairly! My foot slipped. Try: it again.'

WET AND DRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 18 April 1930

WET AND DRY. Many people, if asked what was the driest place in the world, would plump for Central Australia, where rain fell recently after a drought that had lasted for seven years. Ihey would be wrong, ifor there are some parts of South America f where a seven years' drought isj nothing-, and a man can live outi the Psalmist's 'three score and ten') without ever seeing a drop of rain, j Of course, it mav rain somptimps Lord Ernest Hamilton has described the coming of rain in Lima, the capi tal of Peru, during a visit he paid there. 'We were fortunate enough to be favored with the only shower which Lima had enjoyed for seventy years,' he writes in his book, 'Forty Years On.' 'For five minutes itj rained solid tropical rain. T''- ter-' ror-stricken inhabitants thought the end of the world had conr?.' I But if America can oi' «nme' of the driest places in the world, it also contains some of the wettest.

MANY JUMPING RECORDS , SHATTERED THIS SEASON | Time records in many jumping events have been broken this season, j Dookie. giving an attractive per formance at Moonee Valley, set world's record figures for a two-mile hurdle race.

OUR STAYERS AND THEIR TIMES. GOOD HORSES OF PAST FIVE [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 18 April 1930

OUR STAYERS AND THEIR HIES. | GOOD HORSES OF PAST FIVE It seems the proper thing nowa-j days to bewail the alleged deteriora tion of our thoroughbreds as stay-i ers. Whether this pessimism is war-] ranted is a matter of opinion. A litffle while ago I ('Pilot' in Sydney 'Guardian'; w#s reading aj book published in England in the] 50's ,in which the writer, an accept- J ed authority in his day, expressed i the opinion that racehorses werej going from bad to worse, and were not nearly as good as between 20 andi 30 years earlier. ! According to his ideas the i^ng-! lish thoroughbred should now be ex- 1 tinct as a racehorse, but, so far from! having deteriorated, it is certain] there is no distance up to two miles that til; average English racehorse of to-day cannot run faster than the one of about a hundred years ago. It is deplored that nowadays the trend is to breed for speed, and that insufficient consideration is given stayers. - Still, speed is the main thing, and if present method...
