PREVENT TOOLS FROM RUSTING. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

PREVENT TOOLS FROM RUSTING. A good preparation for preventing toois from rusting is made by the slow melting together of six or eight parts of lard to one of vesin, stirring till cool. This' remains semi-fluid, ready for use, the resin preventing rancidity and supplying an air-tight film. Rubbed on a bright surface ever so thinly it protects and pre serves the polish effectually, and it can be wiped clean, if desired, or it may be thinned with kerosene or ben zine. Whatever the number of a man's friends, there will be times in his lite when lie has one too few; but if he has only one enemy he is lucky in deed if he has not one too many. The idea of joy in one's work lias been often ridiculed, but neverthelss it is fast taking root in the minds of many and proving its value and merit. To perform the day's work joyfully and joyously may not be pos sible, in cases, without effort, but the fact is being realised more and more that it is very much worth while to develop the habit.

VALUE OF SUNFLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

VALUE OF SUNFLOWERS. The German children are being en couraged to raise sunflowers. They are planted upon every available foot of ground, according to the reports, and the Government itself is doing what it can to aid in the cultivation. The object is to secure seed for the oil which can be obtained from them. It may not be generally known, but it is a fact that America is going into the production of sunflowers upon a rather pretentious scale. In some sec tions of the country tliey are planted in lr.rge areas, and they have become a commercial quantity. The sunflower is indeed a valuable plant. The seed is very rich in oil, and contains other food values. As a "feed" it is unexcelled by any other grain. The amount that can be grown upon an acre of ground is so large that, at a fair price, their cultivation becomes profitable. At this time an acre produces from £G to £10 worth of the seed, outranking wheat in the matter of profit. Our ancestors understood the value of sunflower to s...

FEEDING BEES. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

FEEDING BEES. A correspondent complains that the simplicity feeder lias not been alto gether satisfactory for providing a colony with winter feed. This, is not unusual, for the ciiief merit of that feeder is fouud when it is availed of for stimulative feeding. For feeding a large number of colonies, Mr. Beuh ne some years ago found the ordinary 71b. honey tins more serviceable. He described his method of using them as follows:-All that is necessary is to have for each tin a piece of tliin board, six inches by six inches, to which is nailed a rim 3-S inch thick and inch deep, with hot wax run all over the joints to make them watertight. The lever tops are re moved from the tins; if the tins have wire handles, these are pulled out. and the clips holding them bent down so that the tin will stand level when upside down. A few holes are punch ed into the side of the tin with a one inch nail, as near the top edge as y ssible. The tin is then filled with syrup, the rimmed board put on top ...

Peace Treaties. How They Are Drawn Up. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

Peace Treaties. How They Are Drawn Up. When the war comes to an end a treaty of peace will be signed, sealed and delivered, as between the various belligerents. This will be a most imposing docu ment, written by hand throughout, sealed with many seals, and bound about with green silk ribbon. Follow ing the usual custom, each copy will begin with the words, "In" the Name oT the Most Holy and Undivided Trin ity." Should, however, Turkey be one of the signatory powers, as seems probable, this formula will be altered to "In the Name of Allah the Almighty God," in the copy allotted to her. At least as many original copies as there are signatory Powers will be signed, and sealed, while several certi fied copies will be signed, but not sealed, for the sake of convenience. The original copies will be securely locked up in the State archives of the different countries; the certified cop ies will be used for printing from and for reference. Peace treaties are not written right across the page...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. If you want your grate to shine really well, rub it over with just a little tiirpentine. Then polish with a soft duster. It will look well for days. Make easement curtains for upper windows of unbeached calico. It looks just as well as the real thing, and wears better, while it is only about half the price. Put odd bits of soap in a jar, and pour on boiling water. Set on ono side, and the soap will melt and be just the thing to add to the water in which silver or china is being wash ed. Add more water if it gets too thick. After washing linoleum wipe it over with water to which a little thin glue lias been added. This gives it a pol ish, but doesn't make it slippery. And it certainly prolongs the tidy life of the linoleum. What do you do with left-over bread sauce? I find it makes a splendid ad dition to the meat for rissoles, or it can be added to an ordinary milk pud ding made without sugar, and served as a savory pudding. Flour bound on a deep cut will stop the b...

THE COW. Little Essays by Aunt Sarah. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

THE COW. Little Essays by Aunt Sarah. "This. cow-.is made of beef and bones, .and answers. to the name ot Jones. Some of : her - mother's kin and kith will answer to the name of Smith. And some there be will-not come at all, although you call and qall and call. The cow has horns upon her head, and when annoyed she sticks you dead. At the other end there hangs a (ail, with which she .sloshes the milk ing-pail. If ever you this tail should pull, look out for Mr. Jones, the bull. He,-her husband, suffers from fits; when angry, tosses you double or quits. The cow, little ones, is a noble beast-at a distance. We ought to be very grateful to the cow. She gives us beef and 60up and oxtail mil mock-turtle. Steaks are also cut from the cow, but this is best done ;ifter the animal's demise, as it is apt to irritate her. When a cow starts flag-signalling with her tail and puts her head down, you'd better cilmb up a tree and take your lunch with you. In the country, the ignorant rural people ge...

CHAPTER XII. A Recognition. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

CHAPTER XII. A Recognition. "Will you enlighten me now?" said Franklin smilingly, as he leaned for ward with a lighted cigarette be tween his fingers. The fatigues, and shocks, and anxieties of the day had been put pleasantly to sleep, under the benign and humanising influences of a perfectly-cooked supper and a cool bottle of hock. "As to that double-faced scoun drel?" replied Skipton. "I understood he had little more than half a face left," remarked Franklin with grim pleasantry. "We're talking of different men, it seems. Mr. Franklin, I could kick .myself. 1 thought we were cleverly laying a trap for someone; and in stead of that I walked straight into a trap myself." Franklin shook his head, and smil ed in token of his inability to grapple with this dark saying. "It's plain as a pikestaff," said Skipton, "that Garland is in partner ship with that other blackguard." "I can't see how that is possible." "I'll explain. The man with the scars-we'll call him X, the unknown quantity-mu...

Famous Cripples. Whose Fame Has Travelled All Over the World. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

Famous Cripples. Whose Fame Has Travelled All Over the World. Lord Byron had a club foot and was acutely conscious of the fact to his last day. Yet lie was a fine boxer, having taken lessons from one of the famous "bruisers" of his time; he was also a splendid dancer,, and, as everybody ltnows, he swam the Helles pont, the Dardanelles, in emulation ol one of his Greek heroes. Leander. Sir Walter Scott was also a cripple, yet in spite of his disability was a most active man. One night in early boyhood he was chased around the room by his mother, who wished to pack him off to bed. Jn the morning lie was affected with fever, and after three days it was found that he had lost tile use of his right leg. He never wholly recovered the use of this limb and always walked lame, with a heavy step. Yet he was very active as he grew up, fighting and climbing with the other boys. It is probable that his early affliction, however, had much to do with the special direction his genius took, for it t...

NINE MILLION JEWS IN EUROPE. They Want to Make England Their Home. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

NINE MILLION JEWS IN El/ROPE. They Want to Make England Their Home. An interesting little book has just been published-"Zionism and the Jewish Future"-which contains some remarkable figures about Jews. In England to-day there are estimated to be 250,000, while France numbers 100,000 Jews. Russia possesses the huge total of 4,000,000, and Poland comes next on the list with a million and a half. Prussia, including the Stato of loosen, has 410,000 Jews. In the whole of Europe there are 9,000,000 Jews. The majority of Jews speak a language called Yiddish which, according to the book, is a modification of German. The ultimate object of the "Zionists, the author explains, is not to attempt to get every member of this scattered race, as many people suppose, back to Palestine, but merely to make Eng land the capital of the Jewish nation. Unless . this object "s achieved, the Zionists fear that Jews will in time lose not only their distinctive tongue, but their nationality as well. The remar...

All classes wero bound to bo affected by its cessation, and it was wise to provide as far us possible against the difficulties shortage of money might engender. They did not know what would happen when peace was proclaimed, because the world had never in its history had on experi ence of war on such an unexampled scale. Governments and individuals should prepare for the inevitable changes that rouat occur, and should exercise the greatest economy, increase industry and production, and strengthen thoir Gnancial positions in every way. The first and heat way of attaining that object was by cutting down expenditure, and ...

End of War. "CONSIDERABLE TIME YET" [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

End of War. "CONSIDERABLE TIME YET" THE Prime Minister of New Zealand (Mr Massey) and the Minister for Finance (Sir Joseph Ward) returned to London from France on Saturday night. Mr Massey, in a special statement to the Australian Press Association, said : "We spent a full week in France looking into the conditions as they exist at the front, and more particularly with regard to the New Zealand troops. The New Zealanders are in good heart and cheer fully confident, but the weather and the approach of winter make it almost im- possible to continue operations on a large scale. At present, naturally there is a great deal of discomfort, but everything is being done to render the winter quarters as comfortable as possible. During the visit we had an opportunity of conferring with Sir Douglas Haig and other officers of the general staff. Whilst matters are going very well, no one whose opinion is worth having even suggests the possibility of the war ending   for a considerabl...
