CATCH CROPS—THEIR VALUE AND ADVANTAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 April 1914
CATCH CRUPS-THEIR VALUE. AND ADVANTAGES. A "catch," or "stolon" crop is one that is grown between the regular an nual crops of the rotation, and which is not considered the main crop of the year. The ohief crop of the year oc cupies the ground during the summer months, while the "catch" or "inter polated" crop has its active period of gr"ow' t in the autumn, and perhaps also in the spring. In market gard ening, the practice of growing interpo inted crops is quitd common, but in ordinary agrioulture it is restricted in cold and temperate climates, and is only extonsively practised in warm countries such as Italy, where numerous second ary crops are successfully grown after the ordinary oornii harvest. In Great Britain the practice is most widely fol lowed in the Southern parts of Eug land, where the winters are short, tihe autumns mild, and the spring early. In the north of England, and in Scotland. where the climate is more severe, catch cropping is much more restricted, wrhilo in I...

DANGER IN PUBLIC DRINKING CUPS. PRECAUTIONS IN SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 April 1914
DANGER IN PUBLIC DRINKIN( CUPS. PRECAUTIONS IN SCHOOLS. In the medioal report submitted to the Department of Public Instruction, in 1910, appears the following remarks -"The school drinking cup must al ways be a source of infection in diph theria, measles, soarlet fever, mumps, and so on. The safesty way would be to teach the children to fill the mug to the brim and drink with both lips inside, the edge of the cup pressing against the outside of the lip. Drink ing from the tap canl be prevented by hiving an inverted metal bell about 3mu. in diameter, slightly lower than the end of the tap." 'Since this re port, Dr. Rothl invented a device that is employed in the Fort-street school, and which is said to be very effective. In America no fewer than 22 States save abolished the publio drinking cup by law. The perils of the ordinary cup were demonstrated by experiments made in the Chicago Board of Health laboratories. Guinea pigs were heated with material faken from the rims of public-ch...

International Sport. The. question as to whether or no we ara to be represented in the 1916 Olympiad at Berlin seems now to be the sole topic of conversation among athletes. The question must soon be decided, but, before any decision is tak en it is as well that the British publio should hear both sides of the question. and that the matter should be thor oughly threshed out. Plrsonally speak inu, I beli-ve a am voicing a very large section of public, opinion when I say that so long as these Olyn|piads take place under existing coni.ktiaeSs Eng iish amateurs will be-very wel advised in having nothing more to do with them ewhlatevor. For as things now .1re the nation with the longest purse must win thi greatest number of poitits, for there is nothing to prevent them haying their men and turning them into animals for four or more ears, during which time they can hard v call their souls their own.--Gu rickalls, in "Morning Post."

EXACTLY THE TIME for my , usual nip. i .a comfort to the aged Terribly Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY ANNABEL GRAY. CHAPTER VII. Alice pleased Miss Marchmout. This piece of blonde perfection and insipid Ity-who practised h?r songs of a morning, and wore such charming din nler dresses and lawn-tennis costumes, and would have £100,000 some day, was the very girl for Leonard to marry. Alice had always studied Miss March mont's tastes, for she had the necessary feminine tact to ensure success in life. She presented her with lovely little Frenoh and Viennese nick-nacks when she came from abroad, road French no vels aloud to her in thq vilest of ac cents, chose the most costly materials for her dresses, wore the most distract ingly pretty hats, and spent her days in the elegant trivialities habitual to fashionable high-bred young ladies Miss Marchmont was, as ever, in a chatty mood. She sought Lenere, in the hot, blindless, little pantry. "Yes, they've gone," she said, "cur ling" herself up o...
Operating the Babcock Test. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 April 1914
Operating the Babcock Test. The accuracy of the Babcock test de pends upon its proper operation. It has been found, howere, that if pro perly operated the per cent. of fat in cream, as determined by the Bab cook test, corresponds with the chemi cal analysis and is, therefore, correct. All Babcock glassware used where milk and cream are bought and paid for on the butterfat basis should be tested for accuracy. This can most readily be done by the Burette method of calibration. The 9 gram 50 per cent. 6-inch cream test bottle and the 18 gram 50 per cent. 9-inch cream test bottle are the least objectionable styles of cream test bot tles. Without the use of representative samples of cream, correct tests cannlot be made. Proper care of the cream on the farm and thorough mixing be fore sampling makes possible the tak ing of representative samples. Composite sampling .and testing are unsatisfactory and tile results unre liable. Their practice cannot be too strongly condemned. The samples of...

HOMELY HINTS. If all dainty lingers their duties might choose, Who woukl- wash uli the dishes and polish t.be shoes? It is better to do a thing wrong than not to try to do it at all.

A MODEL PIG FARM. In oir wanderings over the earth we have. had frequent opportunities of iooking ever several very respectable pig farms. At the Agricultural State Farms in America neither trouble nor expense is spared in fitting up proper quarters for pigs. We hat. secen some very creditable pig premises in Scot lad, and it occurs to its that We once had the pleasure of inspecting the pig farm of the famous E. T. Hooley, one time millionaire, but who is now "do ing time." having been convicted of emtbezzlement recently. I remember years ago Hooley was the "rage" in London, having made. enormous sums by company promotion. Among other things he presiented a set of gold plate for use at Communion in St. Paul's Uathedral,.aln he seemed to have a taste for agriculture and particularly the breeding of purebred pigs. He had a magnificent estate near Cambnridge, and it was here that he carried on the breeding of swine. He specialised en tirely in the Largo Black (Devon) :,reed, and I must...

Eggshells and long life [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 April 1914
Eggshells and long life The New York c;rresil:onment of the 'Standard" is waxing eloquent, over souie supposed discoveries of Professor Emmench, of Mlunich. and his colleague Professor Loewe. They claim to have produed a ,panlncea for all ills and a life-lengthener. According to the scribe this is called "chloride of cggshells" a Yankee newspaper "medical" Term. [t is ,of course, well known that the eggshells of birds containi various lime salts on a matrix of keratin, which is one of the a-proteins. It may be that the lime salts or the eggshells are in what are called an organised form. Lime salts are, of course, essential for the blood and for skeletal building, etc, in the human and other frames.
SOME PET PEN-WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 April 1914
SOME PET PEN-WORDS. Mr. Ridler Haggard's pet phrase is '"and then a s:trange thing happened.'; while if you delete the first and fourth words of that sentence you will get Mr. Stanley Weyman's favourite ex. pression also. On somewhat similar lines is Mr. William Le Quex's oft recurring "and then the mystery was increased a thousandfold," which will recall many an exciting moment in this master of mystery's thrilling tale. As is perhaps natural in a writer who for fifteen years was a "poor traveller" in the United States, that bhort-sentenco writer and friend of 'full-stops," Mr. -Bart -Kennedy msakes frequent use of "I went on and on." Mr. Frankfort Moore, who achieves the difficult task of being a's brilliant a writer of historical as of society novels, confesses to two pet phrases "curiously enough" and. "but that nras just where he made the mistake." Mr. Jerome K. Jerome has always done sis best to avoid anything of the kind, out finds that "at least, so it appears to me." will s...
Hughes Creek. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 3 April 1914
Hughes Creek. On Friday last, the surrounding district experienced a very severe thunderstorm, the thunder being very loud and the lightning particu larly vivid. A few trees were struck, one on Mr 'Shanahan's pro perty being worthy of inspection. This tree was a large stringybark, fully 4 feet. or more in diameter, and had doubtless looked down on many tribes of the Australian Blackfellow in his natural state. This veteran was completely shat tered by the electric current and pieces hurled in all direc;ions, one piece-a good lift for two young men-was hurled 140 yards away, whilst smallfoi pieces were thrown to even greater distances. The rain was heavy but patchy, a fall of 122 points taking place at the local school. Things were begin ning to look very serious owing to the scarcity of rain, but now the fear has beep removed. The rain fell very quickly and consequently did not do the amount of good that. a shower would have done. Hughes' Creek next morning was in. i state of flood ...
