NEW ENCLAND PROSPECTS. DRY YEAR AND RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 11 January 1919
NEW ENCLAND PROSPECTS. DRY YEAR AND RABBITS. GLKN INNES (N.S.W.).-The past yoar was ono of the driest on record, the total fall for the year being 2063 points, or 1150 points below thc aver age. In the past ll months 1355 points were registered, 707 points hav ing fallen in January. Notwithstand ing this fact, the position is not as bad as might be expected, although the out look is not at all reassuring. After a very severe winter some good showers relieved the situation in tho spring, promoting a good shoot in grass, and .assisting the crops. The subsequent (excessive heat has had a disastrous ef 'fect, for many of the crops will bo al most complete failures, and in places that have not been visited by storms pasture has practically disappeared. There have been heavy losses .of stock, this being particularly hard on tho small man. One owner lost over 1000 sheep out of SOOO. Tho mortality among cattle has also been heavy.

NORTH-WESTERN NEWS RAILTON. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 11 January 1919
NORTH-WESTERN NEWS RAILTON. Fire.-A narrow escape from a dis astrous fire occurred at fllenkhorn's large lime and manure works and saw mills at Kindalin, near Railton, on Thursday afternoon! From what can bo gathered, some sparks , from a fire near by set fire to a building near to the limo kilns, this extending the fire to the large five-storied manure fac tory Oh the one side and tho sawmill Oh tho other, and it was only by al most superhuman efforts on thc part of ¡tho proprietor and others engaged at j tho works that the whole of the build ings and plant, including several en gines, also heavy stocks of sawn tim ber, were not totally destroyed. Tho situation was such that in order to save the main buildings and plaritvit was necessary'to leave thc lesser build ing to ita fate. Tho loss of tho build ing will be a serious inconvenience but when compared with what would have been the result had not tho fire .been overcome tho loss is infinitesimal.

Ho tailed off so far at first that his chance looked hopeless, buî in the straight bo came fast and almost caught Sojourn.

The result was that Launceston passengers did not reach home until about one o'clock on Sur.day morning. Karlsiine has been nominated for the Newmarket; the owner has not yet any serious idea of running her, but she has been put in on the off-chance that she may do something exceptional at the Clip carnival. In any case she is likely to go to Melbourne to be raced later on. Tlie Sydney performer Ardrossan is expected ot Hobart this week, having been purchased by Mr. P. J. Power.

DEVONPORT TROTS. , , Tbc two trots on Saturday attractor Rood fields and speculation. In tin second division there wero somo prom ising sorts that should bo heard o later on. Two smart-looking pacers it Calder Dells and Westwood, off th( front,, were well backed, but thej showed no pace to speak of in the race Neither did Lord Delmont, who was in the market. Direct, from near thc I front, besan very smartly in the hands of the crack trotting horseman, J. I Moriarty, and the lead ho gained en abled him to win. though old Dandy caught him at thc turn, but broke. Direct, who comes from Cressy, has shown signs of pace previously, but he breaks badlv. and it is pretty safe to say he would not have won but for J. Moriarty. It is hard to say just how much he is worth to a horse amongst our riders. Trotters rarely break with him, and when they do he does not lose much ground, as was the case with Direct. Tho winner went about 2.48 from practically a 2.59 mark. There was good class in the fi...

REMEMBER THIS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 11 January 1919
REMEMBER THIS. If new boots will not polish, rub them over with half a lomon and leave until thoroughly dry. Repeat once or twice if necessary. Dissolve a lump of soda in a little hot water, and add it to the blue wat er. This prevents tho blue from settling in the clothes, and makc3 them beautifully white. A baby's bottle ought never to bo washed with soap, but thc moment it is empty it should be washed in cold w.ater, then filled with a weak solution of boric acid. To extinguish a chimney which has caught fire, take a large handful of sulphur and throw it into tho fire. Wien tho' sulphurous fumes ascend they will at once put out tho confla gration. After washing bair bmshes in soda and water they should be Jield under a cold water tap. This hardens tho bristles, and makes them last much longer than if they were just rinsed in warm water. To remove paint from a dress taite a camel-hair brushy dip thc point of it in turpentine, and just damp the stained parts. Let tho garment dry, a...
