Olio of tlio greatest assets of n shire council is to have a stone quarry within : its boundaries, ■ and that the KortmibuiTR riding possesses. This may not be generally known to ratepayers but nevertheless it is a fact, and to all appearances contains thousands of yards of good hard stone, quite suitable for most if not all of the streets and roads surround-' iug the township. During the pas! few weeks the riding councillors have, spent about ten pounds in having the quarry—which is situated at the bottom of Priucess-street and near Kardella road—cleaned out, and it has been money Svell spent. Although tho place has never been tested in any -way to prove what quantity, if there, sudicient stone of a good quality, is lying near the surface to allow of a fair quantity of road metalling being carried out with it.

IRON FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 15 January 1914

IRON FOR FOWLS. Iron is present in the 1'owI'b body; part of tnis iron is in an organised form in the red corpuscles ot the blood. The total amount ot iron is small, but nevertheless, it is 01 great importance, and a deliciency re sults in anaemia. One frequently finds that eggs laid by, insufficiently fed fowls have pale yolks. The coloring of the yolic is due to pigments, and, possibly, Co the phosphonpine termed lecithin. Iron, in an organised form, is found in the ash of tne egg. Vegetable foods, es pecially clover and lucerne, are rich in minerals, and their use results in richiy-colored yolks. Anaemic fowls may bo easily treated by administer ing to each live drops ot perchloride of iron in a teaspoon of well-sweeten ed milk. This is a very cheap tonic, and is better in many ways than the ordinary sulphate of iron (copperas).

Too Much for the Ghost. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 15 January 1914

Too Much for the Ghost. Archbishop Thomson once "laid" a ghost in a very simple way. Staying at a country house with traditions of a family ghost, he was put up for the night in the "haunted chamber." In the morning his hosts were anx ious to know it' he had seen anything. "Oh, yes," he replied; "about twelve o'clock I heard a knock at the door. I said, 'Come in, come in.'" "And did he come?" "Yes; an old sallow-looking man." "Yes, that is our ghost! What did you do?" "I got out ot bed and asked If he belonged to the house. He nodded as sent. 1 asked him if he were a par ishioner. He nodded again. Then I said, .'1 am auxious to build some new schools; will you give me a subscrip tion?' He disappeared and I saw Mm no more!"

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 15 January 1914

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why is it that a newly-engaged girl Is a thorn in the flesh to all her dis engaged sister women? To begin with—observes a lady correspondent (who is not newly-en gaged)—she is odiously sorry.for you j because you don't happen to .be a betrothed person also. You may have heaps of chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who ever seiz ed upon her first proposal will patron ise you until you'feel almost ready to accept anyone. When she isn't irritating you, the newly-engaged girl is rather funny— over the ring more especially. This sacred object for a few weeks appar ently occupies the place of sun, moon, stars and all light. If it can bo said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. And then, in otlier ways, she is so hopelessly selfish. But perhaps the personal vanity of! the engaged girl enrages her femin ine acquaintances more than any of; her numerous failings. To have to stand by .and behold an insignifica...

In the sunshine of favoring circum stances it is easy for the worldly to be chcerful; but the light that shines in the darkness of adversity and be reavement has a heavenly origin. If a mail be gracious and courteous to strangers it shows he is a citizen of the world, and that his heart is no island cut off from other lands, but a continent that joins to them. Do not give way to fretfulness. It takes the fragrance out of life.

FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 15 January 1914

FATTENING POULTRY. The best and, at the same time, most economical method o£ fattening all kinds o£ poultry is to keep them in-contiuemenc ior a short time before they are required for table. A good deal of judgment, however, has to be exercised in deciding the length of time this conlinement is to last, for if-overdone, even in the slightest de gree, the birds rapidly lose llesli and go back in condition. Strange as it may seem, once this begins,- no amount of feeding will restore either thoir weight or condition till after tlicy havo rogaluoa tliolr llborty nguln. li Kor this reason the poultry must bCt confined for too long a period bofore | they are required.

FOR THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 15 January 1914

. FOB THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. If ail poultry houses of the closed 111 type nad an end or-one Bide o£ them Knocked out, disease would dim inisn oy one-halt, ana tne proiits rrom tne birds compelled to roost in them would, probably, be doubled, it is iinpossiuie to conceive anything more insanitary and conducive to disease tnan the ordinary type of towinouse one sees in the country. It is cramp ed, UarK and without any ventilation, except the many draughty crackB. it is iitue wonder that going from the foetid atmosphere into oiten an un sheltered yard the birds contract colds, and soon become a prey to dis ease. it were far better to let the hens i-oost in trees. The sleeping quarters of fowls Bhould be merely draught-proof shelters from extremes of weather and, If winter eggs be de sired, they should have dry scratch ing quarters tor bad weather. Always have your poultry houses open to tne north.

COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 15 January 1914

COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. There are certain people in the world whom the more you think of the less you think of them. Surely it isn't extraordinary to get pearls out of a matchbox. Lots of girls have got diamonds out of mugs before now. According to a Paris paper, "Seventy per cent, of the French people live in one room." But it must be a jolly big room. A Russian dwarf of 4ft. has, we learn, fallen in love with a St. Peters burg lady of Cft. 2in. That's not fall ing in love—that's climbing up to it. "It is rare indeed," says a contem porary, "that a householder can get a shock from his electrical installa tion." He generally gets that when the bill comes along.
