HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 9 January 1914

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. An easy way to open oysters is to place them on a hot stove for a few seconds, when the oysters will 'wan, and you are able to get your knife in without the slightest trouble. When bottling l.quids of any descrip tion boil the corks to soften them, and while hot press them into the bottles; when cold the bottles will be found to Ie quite tightly sealed. Always fillet your fish and truss your: fowls at home, or you lose the trim mings and giblets, -?hich are so useful in stool-making. Nevei" thicken gravy while it is boil ing. Draw the' pan containing the gravy away from the fire, and mix the thickenling in slowly, ,stirring it till all lumps have disappeared: - Stir while all boils up, and cook a few. moments, anid it is ready to serve.

OF RURAL INTEREST (By ''Rusticus.") Much is ,being made of the discov - ery by the Country lRoads Board that B veritable Land of Promise. exists in the Heytesbury and- (0?way .Forest districts. That is, however, an old story for anyone who has even a .casual knowledge of the undeveloped resour oes of Victoria-:-undeveloped for the most part because of the lack of facili ties which it is the province of the Country Roads Board to provide. And it is not for want of effort on the part of.the..people who have .been for more than a generation struggling to bring these rich productive areas into their own, that the need for railways and roads have not been recognised by the authorities. Efforts, little short of desperate have been put - fortlh by the settlers to have the justice of their claims for assistance recognised. -But the evil of centralisation-the - "pull" of the people in the big centres-has rendered these efforts null. -The Board, during a recent pilgrimage through :Heytesbury ...

A narrow black velvet ribbon .with a pendant, or a large baroque pearl is mluch worn with .white blouses for morning wear. Some people have even adopted the fashion of wearing the flat wristxvatch mounted on a. black velS vet ribbon-bracelet, and this eighteenth century fashion makes a quaint con trast with a tailor-made dress.

PEARS BECOMING SCARCE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 9 January 1914

PEARS BECOMING .SCARCE. During the last few years the de mand for perfect pearls has been so great that now the supply on hand is practically exhausted, and the leading jewellers of Europe fear that for some time there will be a dearth of these costly gems. "It is true," says Mf. 0. Ohincolle, an expert, writing on the subject, "that in the thousands of pearl oysters which are being constantly brought up from the deep, many bealitiful- pearls are found, but even if twice as many were found the supply would still be insufficient. The price of pearls has increased greatly of late, yet the more they cost the more eagerly are they sought. "Naturally, the demand is greatest for those which are faultless A jew eller who has a find row of symmetrical pearls can be sure of selling it at a high price. A few days ago I saw a necklace containing 45 pearls, of which 12 were black. It is worth £10,000, and will certainly be sold within a Week. "Wealthl Americans are especially. fond of pearls. T...

PREPARATION OF THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 9 January 1914

pREPARATION OF uTHE SOIL. A thorough preparation of the soil is one of the chief factors in successful.. management of the soil. Soils that are badly run down by continuous crop ping may be restored to their original. state of productiveness by the use of -fertilisers, but the cause of small re turns is not always due to a lack of fertility. Many oenditions may pre vail which prevent the plant attaining a healthy development. Better con ditions, obtained by drainage, liming, etc., may be necessary before the plan can avail itself of further addi tions of plant food. The more per fect the condition of the soil is made the better will plants be able to attain the highest development; there will,. then, be greater conversion of food into crops. Our soils are the medium -in which we can at pleasure convert pot ash phcsphoric acid-nitrogen into crops; therefore, is it not advisable to keep the medium in thehighest sfate of ef ficlency? Feed your crops as you do -your animals, not merely ...

MAN WITH PRICE 0N HEAD. WAR AGAINST WHISKY SELLERS. One of the most interoesting visitors that London has had for some time ar rived there recently on his way from Milan to Amerioa This is Mr W. E. Johnson, who, .charged by the United States Congress with the task of sup pressing illegal drink-selling to the. Red Indians, .has completed five excit ing years as Chief Otlicer. He told an interviewer something about his life as an Indian Service Agent. "What led to my appointment by the IRoosevelt Administration in 1906" said .Mr Johnson, "was that things lihad reached an acute stage in the In dian territory. Many people who had committed crimes in the east took re fuge in the Indian reservation, and bo gan selling.liquor to the natives, part ly in order -to make profit, and partly in order to get the Indian drunk and rob him. This led in turn to repris als by the Indians. "I got together 25 to 30 frontier men, and we' ient out making arrests and burning drinking saloons. In 18 months,...

THE FEEBLE-MINDED AS WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 9 January 1914

THE FEEBLE-MINDED AS WORKERS. "It should be understood clearly, writes a woman dbctor, that the feeble in mind, no matter how carefully they are trained, will never be able to sup port themselves. The oost of the careful supervision which is always necessary makes it impossible that any colony should be run solely on the proceeds of the work done by the col onists. What can be done is, by careful adjustment of administration and by wise apportionment of wQrk, ac cording to the powers and wishes of the boys and girls cared for, to greatly reduce the sum which must be fountd either from the rates or from private philanthropy. The farm colony is pro bably much the best form of perman ent care for the feeble-minded, both necessarily mean the establishing of a protected trade, in competition with outside labour, and because of the great variety of work which is provided by the cultivation of land. Other trades should be run in connection with the farming and gardening, so that by degrees...

IMPROVING EGG PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 9 January 1914

IMPROVING EGG PRODUCTION. To improve egg production and ex hibition quality in future generations requires a knowledge of the producing qualities of the individual hens, or the family line from which they are taken. One who first suggested breeding for egg production made the statement, "Heredity is the first.factor." Iil ex planation of this, he said that a pullet trom parents, both of which had come from breeding for egg production for several generations had far more c!LL,ace ol prolifioacy than had pullets of ui certain ancestors. He said fur ther that not all the female progeny of prolific parentage inherit potential pro liffoacy, meaning that they. do not in herit- the latent power to produce mas y eggs. Evidently, however, a hen in order to excel in egg produc tion must be able to eat and assimilate a large quantity of food; she must have such crop capacity as can carry to keep her digestive organs busy to the roost a supply of food suffiient throughout-the night.
