CHRISTMAS REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 17 December 1914

CHRISTMAS .REFLECTIONS. Silas Snell writes : The whirr of the reaper and binder, the harvest atooka like minature military tents, the squeaking of toy balloons, remii ds us Of the near approach of the Christinas season, when, for a week, or there abouts, quite a transformation takes place in human nature, which gives a passing glimpse of what human nature might become if that amiable conduct were kept up all the year round. For an all loo brief period the gloomy become joyous, the revengeful for giving, the niggardly generous, the hard-hearted charitable, and slaves to .toil enjoy a brief respite, especially if .they do not happen to be on a farm. The sober, alas, often become intoxi cated, by way of realising the glad ideal of a "Very Merry Christmas." The sick and the poor are remembered, _and relieved out of the bounty of those able ~to give. The children enjoy a carnival of gifts and feasting, and even the Federal Parliament adjourns. All tliis shows mankind's highest and most p...

METHODIST CHURCH CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 17 December 1914

METHODIST CHURCH CONCERT. In the Mechanics' Hall on Friday evening last a successful concert was given in aid of the Methodist Church building fund. A very fair audience was present, and manifest appreciation was given to the programme, the chil dren, particularly,acquitting themselves in a very creditable manner, and reflect ing credit on their teachers. The pro gramme opened with a pretty Cantata, "The Rolling Seasons," the principal parts being taken by-Miss L. Pearson (Spring) ; Miss V. Huffer (Summer); Miss Rita Green (Autumn), and Master Alf Fitzpatrick (Father Christmas). The limelight effect added additional charm to the scene, and all the young folk went through their parts very well indeed. An action song, 'Little Cooks,' by the senior girls was nicely rendered, as WBB- also a Minuet by six young girls. The following items were also rendered :-Harp selection, Mr H. Chapman; Glee, "Come where my love lies dreaming," Methodist Choir (en cored) ; Duet, "Life's Dream is O'er,"...

A NEW YEAR RESOLUTION. HOW TO PROVIDE FOR THE CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 17 December 1914

A NEW YEAR RESOLUTION. HOW TO PROVIDE FOR THE CHILDREN. Is one of those problems which faces most parents, and which often causes a deal of consideration and worry, as they watch the small members of their family gradually growing up around them. What is the best they can do for them - how prepare them for the future, for the fight among their fel low beings in the hurry and struggle for'existence 1 Many parents would have been saved regret-perhaps even an aching heart -many a child a disappointed career, if a ittle more thought had been given to the future of the youngster by those responsible for its existence. The dominant wish of the parent is to see the children a credit to them, and the earliest provision for a child is a good education. * In these days of cheap schooling in Australia this is not usually a difficult matter. School over, comes the more important question of a trade, profession, or career for the boy, sometimes even for the girl, but io a less degree. There are ...

HEIFERS NEED CAREFUL MILKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 24 December 1914

HEIFERS NEED CAREFUL MILKERS. Many .young heifers- arc absolutely ruined by careless or roxigh milkers during tho first week of the milking period. Through bad treatment, they get a bad reputation as poor milkers, while the fault lies entirely with thoso who handle them. A good milker is probably a greater rarity than a good COM'. The cow is a sensitive creattu'e and requires to be handled in a gentle manner. No portion of her body is more sensitive than her udder. It is a great relief to the cow to have her distended udder relieved of tho milk there is in it, nut she expects it to be drawn quickly and gently, not un necessary tugging at the teats, but by a- gentle rapid pressure, and with a downward movement of the fingers. As a rule, with her first calf tho cow's udder is swollen and tender, the skin distended and very sensitive. It is advisable to wash the bag and tents with warm water and wipe dry and ap ply vaseline after milking. With clean cows ' and clean cowsheds, the next ...

VALUE OF SALT LICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 24 December 1914

VALUE OF SALT LICKS. A grazier in the north, east of South Australia refers to the need of supply ing stock with salt, especially in coas tal districts. He writes:-"Cattle and horses which are stall fed can. be given a little salt raided with their food, or by iplacing a lump of rook 6alt in their feeding boxes, and for those at pasture a few lumps of rock salt, or a mixture of salt, sulphate of iron and clay made into balls, can be plac ed about their camps and watering places. If a few pieces of bone are placed into the clay licks it induces them to take to ilie lick very quickly. For sheep, the salt mixture must be placed in troughs, covered to protect from the wet. The size depends 011 the number of sheep which the trough lias to supply. "Wo have troughs cut out of honey suckle wood in \ise for eight years, still as good as new. This wood is easily worked, light and plentiful. The roof can bo a simple lean to, either bark or iron. The troughs can be placed either near the camps ...

PIGS ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 24 December 1914

I ================= I PIGS ON THE FARM. The number of pigs that may bo grown on any fanu, or rather, we might say, be grown to a profit, will depend very nuich on the liking the farmer has for this branch-of live stock. If lie is interested in their management tliey will thrive, and large numbers can' be kept,' but if he has no liking for pigs, and what he expects to get out of them is the only feature which attracts him, there will hardly be large numbers grown and fatted on the farm, and his reputation as a pi& breeder and grower will not bo made. "When a farmer starts keeping pigs with the idea of making them the most important of the animals he keeps on the farm, ho should arrange his farm with that object in view, and stick to the arrangement. A pig farm cannot be put into shape for business at once, and it can only be made to produce tho most profit by keeping regularly at it. Do not keep too large a number of breeding sows, although this is a very common error. The pr...

WHITHER SHALL THE YOUNG MAN GO? (Canadian "Earner's Advocate") So much lias been said on the young men leaving the farm for the city that it .would almost seem as if they should all stay on the farm. Now, I think as .Robbie Burns says: "0 wad some power the giftie gi'e us, to see our selves as others see us," and it would prevent many grevious mistakes on the part of young men choosing t"heir life's occupation. .In setting outt let him take a retrospective view of what his capabilities are and what he is adapted for, then choose accordingly. A Glad stone should not spend his life behind the plough, nor a Lincoln splitting rails, yet there are so many misfits in the professions and the different occu pations of life that point directly to a wrong choice. It is the oase of a round tenant to fit a square mortis. If we look round at the men who have left the^farm for the city we find some occupying and filling with satisfaction, the highest and noblest position in the world, others fill...

THE WAR AND ITS LESSON. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 24 December 1914

THE WAR AND ITS LESSON. Every hour's fightiug for supremacy between the allied forces and the Ger man army brings U6 nearer to a new era that will ultimately dominate the future policy of the Anglo-Saxon race ; iu fact, of the entire world. There is one great lesson to be derived from this gigantic conflict, and it is that the nation most effectively equipped and defended in perfect arms and scientific knowledge of the art of war will be successful. There are other wars than those carried 011 between nations fighting for sorue great goal. There are battles fought daily in other spheres. The health of the general army is an essen tial thing, and so is the health of each individual member of the fighting line.

COMPULSORY TRAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 24 December 1914

COMPULSORY TRAINING. The parents who object to their sons undergoing military training on the ground that it might hurt their consciences to bear arms and learn how to shoot straight are likely to be in a contemptible minority. From all sides, from all creeds comes what might be called the response to the trumpet call. Catholic priests from the altars have urged their flocks to sea that their sons in no way shirked their duty, and, though at first a small section in the Methodist con ference tried to raise aloft the "conscience" .banner, the Eev. Henry Worrall and. many other pastors of that church declared their belief that it was the highest duty of a youth to fit himself for the defence of his country. Thus it will go hard with the man who .keeps his sons from training, and; the time may come when the same sons shall -well, not bless him. This is a good, country, good enough to live in, and quite gccd enough to fight for. XHE UONSCIENCE-KTRICKEN "YOUTH. There'll come a time-too s...

THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXXI. WE WERE CHUMS. When Cis Deverel parted from Ida Duval,vliis manner might have been like ice, Ijut, liis heart was 011 . fire. He was disgusted to think that a woman whom he though unworthy of his love should have such power over him. it seemed a sign of weakness, not to be able to trample on an affection whicn he had tried to drag up by the roots. The touch of her little hand upon his arm made the blood tingle in his veins, though he walked by her side in stern silence. Perhaps he might have relaxed a little more, it' he had been more sure of himself; but his heart had nearly burst- witli indignation, when he caught lielgravcv by the collar, and lie was afraid of speaking one word lest he should say too much. Better to go away and* leave her to think him cold' and cruel, than stay and risk the dan ger of a tete-a-tete, and the after-peace of three lives. He had the unselfish courage to go, whilst a -weaker man would have had the cowardice to stay, a...
