Farm Notes [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914
Farm Notes Many farmers in America are using pulverised limestone to apply to their land to correct its acidity; but ±ew have put it to use in the stable. It has been with a more powerful chemical reaction was needed to abolishh stable odours and flies. Accordingly farmers have as sumed that the expense for such effort was beyond their means. It has been left to the leading horse commission firm of ??\w York to bring to public attention the beneficial effects of cheap ground limestone in the stable. William Bradley has been using limestone dust in his stables where three hundred to five hundred work horses are kept, and when. he obtained a controlling interest in the iss, Doerr and Carroll Horse Co., lie introduced the limestone into the sale stables as well. This is the very finest grade of pulverised lime stone. It is scattered daily throughout the stables to dry up the floors, and consequently reduce the odour. It is also thought to reduce the number of Ilies. \l.tany farmers cou...
Women and the Church [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914
Women and the Church It is easy for a schoolmistress to lose her sense of humour and propor tion and to acquire an exaggerated idea of her own importance, as, wrapt in her mantle of authority, and seated at her 'large raised desk dominating rows of smaller ones,. she wields des potic snway over a kingdom of young people. She is indeed monarch of all she surveys. And in that small aloof world, which_ sets the limits to her life, it is easy for her to lose sight of that bigger world which most of her pupils will presently enter, somlio few only passing into her own. It is easy for her to fall under the numb ing spell of the Machine, which has nmoulded her during the plastic years of early youth into the pattern ap proved by those majestic bureaucrats, men and women, who control eduica tion, and are apt to think that to them alone wisdom and clearness of vision are vouchsafed. It is easy for her to be dazzled by the glamour of red tape and routine, for these clearly de fine her path. T...

Leave for about five minutes, then scrub and well rinse,. and you will be delighted with the result. To Clean Stone Steps: The common method of cleaning them with hearth stone or caked whiting not only gives them a smeary appearance, but washes off with a shower of rain. The Fol lowing preparation not only looks bet tLr, but in the long run saves labor. Twice a week is sufficient for whiten ing, and the remaining days washing the steps.-Tako a gallon of water anu color a deep blue with stone blue. Boil in it lIb of white size, dissolve 1lb of whiting and three cakes of pipe-clay and stir well. Wash the steps with this solution in a light quick manner, and finish with water in the usual way.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") Wheat is so much in evidence just now that it isi n accordance with the fitness of things that this column should be devoted to it this week. ' It is stacked in mountains at the railway stations in the centres of the coreal-pr.-. ducing areas; it is taxing the special facilities provided for its conveyance ta the seaboard, and is creating bu.:y scenes at the wharves. It is literally a golden stream that is to bring in ie turn a stream of gold. But in the midst of the satisfaction that everybody must feel at tile garner ing of the good harvest, the attention directed to how much better it might have been is not out of place. It is in no spirit of complaint that this is elmphasised. Nature has, this ye;r, on the whole, been kind to us.

A TERRIBLE SUITOR CHAPTER XXIX. A FULL CONFESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914
A. TERRIBIE SUITOR SBy Mrs. Harriett Lewis, .Author of "Found Guilty," "The Double Lifr ' etc.) CHAPTER XXIX. A FULL CONFESSION. For a moment, Shawcross continued to look about him with the wild glare of a hunted beast. He did not dare to return to Maggie's chamber, lest she should betray his presence there, and deliver him up to his supposed enemies. His one thought, his one prayer, was to see her, and beseech her to deny all knowledge of his whereabouts. As lo stood thus agonised, with a cold dew on his forehead, his gaze suddenly fell upon a half open door at the right of the wide passage, and close at hand. Through the aperture lie caught a glimpse of a lighted and luxurious boudoir, such as could belong alone to the mistress of the dwelling. Maggie must be within the room. She had said she was going to Lady Dunmore's apartment. If lie could only see the gril, he- felt sure she could save him. These wild thoughts passed swiftly through his mind, and, with a wild impulse to throw...

GOOD REASON. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914
GOOD REASON. It was a kindly custom, in a cer Stain-;village, for the wealthier inhabi `- tants to make good the loss which a poorer villager, might sustain through the death of a pig. Old Major Currie, however, had but re cently returned from India ; he therefore 'was astounded at receiv ing a visit from a labourer's wife. "Lost a pig, eh ?" he repeated, gruffly. "Well, I haven't got it. I don't collect pigs !" "Beggin' your pardon, sir," falter ed the woman; "but, you see, the pig died." "Well, d'ye want me to go to the funeral, send a wreath, or what; wo man ?" he fumed. "Oh, no, sir; indeed no !" wascthe reply. "But we're poor folks, sir, and we thoughs that, bein' the big gest pig in the neighbourhood, you'd give us a little 'elp."
NEW PROCESS FOR PRESERVING MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914
NEW PROCESS FOR PRESERVING MILK. To tho already known methods of preserving milk another has been add ed by two Italian physicians. Their method is to preserve milk by means of an atmosphere of carbonic acid gas, under pressure. The milk remains unaltered for several days. both in its physical and chemical characters, and in the biological constituents, the fer ments. Some of the germs present are killed, while others have their de velopment arrested. By this method uncooked milk can be kept for eight or twelve days at a temperature of 12 deg. to 14 dog. C.. while boiled milk is preserved indefinitely. The gas s s produed with little or no trouble. The inventors claim for this method a solution of the question of infant feeding. Milk preserved in this manner ought certainly to be su peri'or to milk sterilised by heat, ow ng to the fact that milk can be kept by this process for a considerable pe riod with all pathogenic germs absent, while its biochemical functions remain intact, whi...

THE POWER OF PUNYTOWN. *`Where is Punytown ?" queried Jobson, of Jobson and Jobson. "Here have we been sending' goods to e. man in Punytown for three months, and letters demanding pay ment for those goods foc three months more, and we don't even. know where Punytown is !" Whereupon Jobson sat down and penned an epistle to the post mas ter .of Punytown for information concerning the recalcitrant cus tomer-what his reputation was, whether he paid his bills, and what kind of man he was generally-and requested the official, if the man was "no good," to apply to the local justice of the peace for powers of collection. But the answer took "Jobson's breath away. It ran as follows : "Sir,-I am the John Smith about whom you are seeking information. I am also John Smith, postmaster, a?-and I am John Smith, justice of the peace.-Yours very truly, S" John Smith."

STORING OF WINTER VEGETABLES. (Minna A. Stoner, Prof. Home Economics, N.D. Agri. Col.) [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914
STORING OF WINTER VEGE TABLES. (Minna A. Stoner, Prof. dome Econ omics, N.D. Agri. Col.) The storing of winter vegetables is economical and desirable. In the fall enough vegetables go to waste from the average farm garden to supply the table during the entire winter. The task of storing is not difficult if one has a knowledge of the conditions best suited for storage, and is willing to perform a small amount of labour. A dry well aired not too dark, frost proof room, cellar or sodhouse will serve the purpose. The most favour able temperaturo is not over 50 degrees Falh. Celery, cabbage and sweet po tatoes should be stored in the coolest part of the room. Racks should be adjusted on which to place the storage boxes or barrels. This avoids the dangers of overheating, excess mois ture, and prevents decay. All veget ables should be gathered before the frost, sorted, dried thoroughly before packing. For long storing, reserve those of mosIt perfect formation" and firm textured. Each root ...

DEEP PLOUGHING FOR OATS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914
DEEP PLOUGHING FOR OATS. On the Iron Mountain railroad de monstration farm at Hope, Ark., oat land ploughed four inches deep yielded but 23 bushels to the acre, while the same land yielded 77 bushels to the acre. This increase results from the fact that deep ploughing afforded a better reservoir for soil water, and dry weather did not delay the growth. In the deeper ploughing a larger am ount of moisture came in contact with more soil particles and dissolved more plant food. There was also more space for root development, and the larger root development was enabled to so cure more moisture and more plant food.

BOMBALA TO ORBOST (BOMBALA TIMES.) [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914
BOMBALA TO ORBOST, (Bo03?ALA TIMES.) The Victorian Country Roads Board in November last paid a visit of inspec tion to the roads in the Shires of Bairns dale, Tambi, and Orbost, some of which lead to the Victorian border. -Within the next two or three years the railway will be comp'eted to Bombala on the New South Wales side and Orbost on the Victorian side, leaving a gap be tween that it is proposed eventually to cover with a railway line. If the time it takes to get a few miles of railway constructed.in either of these States is any criterion it may safely be estimated that this cnnec'ing line will take twenty years for completion. That be ing so it doesn't concern the present generation very much. But if by the expenditure of a few thousand pounds within a period of three years, good roads can be made between Orbost and Bom bala, then this generation is concerned very much. The Roads Board has re commended that the road from Orbost to Genoa be put in a tralficable condi tion. In ...
