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

THE FEEDING OF PIGS. The opinion seems to be general amongst a certain class of pig-keepers, says a writer in "Farmer and Stock breeder," that vegetable food which contains so large a proportion of water -roots, for instance, contain about 9 per cent. of water-cannot be beneficial for pigs, whereas exactly the opposite is the fact, as proved by experiments carried on, one must confess mainly in other countries, li5ive clearly proved that pig fed on nine-tenths- meal and one-tenth vegetable mnateer actually have mi~do a greater increase than pigs fed solely on meal. There is thus a considerable saving in the cost of food. It should be added that there exists inmong certain baoon curers in Ireland a fear that the giving of vegetable matter or roots to pigs during the fattening period injures the quality of the pork and results in soft baconl. It is quite possible that the result may be as stated, but it may also be due, not to the unsuitability of the other lood fed at the same time,'...

Bowls. COUNTRY v. TOWN. WIN FOR COUNTRY. The Seymour Bowling- Green presented a scene of* great activity and joyous excitement on Saturday afternoon last when the bowlers of the Goulburn Valley Association met in friendly rivalry-four -rinks of metropolitan players. The visi tors, 16 in number, were met ar the railway station by Mr Boddy, 'the indefatigable secretary of the Sey mour Bowling Club, and cordially welcomed them to our town.. The visitors putup. at the Royal Hotel, where they were hospitably enter tained, and as far as time permitted made a bird-eye inspection of the surroundings of Seymour in.which they were much Interested. It is only putting it in a mild form to say. that, the match was watched with ititerest by the spec tators and the competitors, the only fly in the ointment being the ab sence of a team from ghepparton. Had that town, teen represented all the clubs in the Gippsland' Va'ley Association would have taken part in the contest. As it w s, however, Seymour...

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

TURF TOPICS. (By "Flemingbon.") Great horse though he undoubtedly is, one doubts the enterprise of the o?'nier of Bullawarra in sending, thi golding across the seas to oppose the cross-counitry cracks of the old land. The trouble is, to nmy mind, that Bu! lawarra was "made in Australia," tiha is, his jumlping education has been imparted to hint on lines suitable to this country. To a certain extent, he will have to unlearn something of what lie has Lean taught in this country to sut the altered conditions Dasnio, w'ao rcoresentcd the best class among the 'chasers of his day, failed in Eng land because, so to say, it was inlpos sible to learn tihe old dog new tricks. lie persisted in wanting to jump over all his fences, while his English op ponents had been educated to jump through the hedges that were omet with. Ulnllawarra, for a while at least, is likely to err in the same direction. Perhaps, being an intelligent horse, he will adapt himself to the different cir cumstances, but th...

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

SKITTISH LONDON. London's ugliness and London's grime aro memories of old rather than I:res nct realities, if they ever existed. Em phatically. London is the cleanest big city I have seen, far cleaner and neater than any 'American. Au.ralian or French city. Some of its beautiful bits-those around the parks and the river, and the surviving patches of old London-are incomparably charming. The newer buildings, however, are rare ly graceful or of the spirit of the oider parts. They als infected, it seems to me, with a spirit of levity and insobri ety. Perhaps tley give the hint to a visitor of the secret of tie real London of to-day, that it is a city uitting olf its dull trappings and resolved to be gay and lead a skittish lifo. For surely the, old London of solemn menu mRdl ponderous newspapers was not; altogeth er an invention and did exijt at one timne? In the present day it oertainly does not. London is the moslt amS- i ing frivolous, easy-going capital Ihat. I know. Its streets, i...

Obituary. MRS ANN JANE HA.I.. The death of Mrs Ann Jane Hall, wife of Mr John Hall, occurred at her husband's residence, "Fair field" Tocumwall, on Wednesday morning of last week. The de ceased had been ailing for a long time, and had been treated for dia betes, which was primarily the cause of death.

It is 17 years since Mrs Hall and her husband, with their family, came to the district and settled on their homestead se lection at "Fairfield."

Their doors were at all times open to friends and neighbors, and the de mise of Mrs Hall at 63 years (a comparatively early age) will, as already indicated, be the subject f...

INGEiNIOUS CHANNEL SCHEMES. 'I'The English Channel tunnel project being to the front again, it may be i terestitg to look at some other schemes for bridgi.g the Gulf. Those of lenry Fairburn , in 1833, were 'decidedly clever, if wild. The main idea was to take deown a considerable portion of the ciiff between Dover and Folkestone and fill up the sea for an area of several miles with the material thus obtained, A huge harbor was to be formed at the extretmity of the now piece of_ land, and similar works were to be undertaken at , corresponding Itoint of the French oaast,. 1'e two harbors were then to be connected by an enormous causeway about, ten miles in length. ]furtlihe suggestions.were that after the harbors hatl been made and irotected by huge sea walls. comllmunication was to bhe continued by the construction of a chain bridge, a tunnels a floating br:dge a bridge of ships, or a great steam ferry Details of these, and many other novel s?chemes, includit'g one for a marine rail...

7ictures by Air. LATEST IN WIRELESS T~SL GRAPHY. 'Pictures by air," is the latest de rolopment of wireless telegraphy. It is coniidently anticipated that in a few months it will be 'possiblo' to transmit drawings, documents, letters, and t.ypewritten matter. bodily in picture form from London to New fork for example, or between land stations and ships at sea.

The Zero Train [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 April 1914

The Zero Train "ihe introduction of the twenty four hours' system of time reckoning on the principal French railways is prosing perplexing to many passen gers. At tle railway stations haras sed-looking people may be seen in knots grouped about. the notice-boards aunouncin tile times of departure. Some of thie less agile witted passen gers have recourse to paper and pen. cil to convert 16.52 into 4.52 p.m. Mathematical-minded persons are ask ing what is to become of zero o'clock in the official time-table. Noon is 12 and midnight is 24 o'clock, but a train leaving a minute after midnight is entered in the timetables as "zero 1." A humorist has already written a pathetic account of a mIan condemn ed to spend his life at It small statiot on the State-owned Western railway waiting for the zero train.

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

THE DOCTOR'S REPORT. WHEN the council passed a motion asking the two local medical gentle men to - report generally on the sanitary state of Seymour, we do not think they had the remotest idea that they were going -to be "hoisted on their own petard." But such is the case. The report has been furnished, and as it is a true and accurate one, in reflects upon the manner in which the council attends to the health of the rate payers generally. The council asked for the report, and it has got it, and what is more, it will have to deal with it. But when the worst is said, there is a great deal that is encouraging in the ,remarks made by the doctors. It the first place we are assured that the typhoid out break is not due to drinking bad water. That in itself is a great re lief to the body politic of Seymour. What is left of the comments2is con fined to the state of the gutters, out-houses and the sanitary cart. And although it is necessary to put the recommendations- regarding them into sp...
