THE MASTER PASSION. (BY LILIAN ELLERTON.) CHAPTER in. THE FIRST WALTZ. .On through the fragrant night, with every branch and twig flinging rain-drops after them as they passed, and a harvest moon sailing slowly through a host of paling stars, with hope pointing with kindly linger to the lover waiting for her at her journey's end, and dull care left in charge of Mrs. Greenaway at the inn. Ida felt• so -untitterably happy that she was almost malihed to lift up her voice in song. The rnnro went at a capital pace,1 eager for her stall in the Beiton stables, and Captain Beresford drove as it he snared lior anxiety, and were wil- | ling to satisfy it. . Alona in the witching hour or night, with the moonlight giving its nameless charm to tlio everyday beauties of field and trees, and the loveliest girl ho had ever seon sitting close by his side, Vol Beresford felt a pleasant excitement in his inner self, and his pulses quickened their ordinary beat. It was with a sigh of regret rather than...

THE COMPOST HEAP. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 4 June 1914

THE COMPOST HEAP Compost is mix«d and rotted vege table matter, particularly manure and litter. The mixture of bulky fertilis ing materials, known as compost, while ot little importance to the general far mer, play* an important .part in gar den | evict ices. Many of the garden crops must be made in a rery short time, or are of dolicata feeding habits Their fon-T ■ therefore, must ba easily assimilable. It is good practice to pile all coarse manures, sods, weeds, or any rubbish available for the pur pose, in big, flat heaps, to ferment and rot before beiiig applied to the garden soil. If desired, chemical manures, such as superphosphate, bone-dust, kai nit, or muriate of potash, may bo add ed to make the compost the richer. By spading or forking the heaps well a few times at reasonable intervals, a homogeneous mass is easily obtained, which can be applied in great liberality without fear, Or more sparingly, in ac cordance with the needs of the partiou lar crop. Of equal importance i...

FORESTRY AND ITS RELATION TO AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 4 June 1914

FORESTRY AND ITS RELATION TO AGRICULTURE. (By H, Mackay, Conserrator of For ests, in "Journal of Agricul ture.") Forestry means the preservation and maintenance of the natural tree-growth of a country by wise use. It oohcerns itself, indeed, with the restocking or replenishment of naked and denuded areas, of funds recklessly stripped by the hand of man or by the devastation of firo; hence it includes the sowing and planting of trees to repair the ravages committed by these agencies. Agriculture, on the other hand, is the utilisation and cultivation of the soil in order that it may yield the great ost diversity of products for the ser vice of man and boast. The two sciences are closely related to each other, and forests properly controlled and wisely used always havo a benefi cial influenoo on agriculture. It is when man goes against natural laws, and strips the cover of mountain and hill, that he and his fellows suffer most loss in tiio long run. If you denude tho mountain and hill-...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 4 June 1914

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Ribs of beef and other joints are frequently boned by the butcher and the bones sent with the meat. They should at once be examined, and any bits the least tainted choppd off and thrown away. The bones should then be put into the oven and baked slowly till dry. They will then keep good for several days, and, when wanted for soup, should be soaked for half an hour in cold water before beginning to cook them. TO KEEP RAW MEAT SWEET, j Run a little vinegar over a large j dish, then place two pieces of stick across, lay the joint on the sticks, and the meat will keep quite fresh during the hottest weather. It will also prevent flies attacking it, since they dislike the smell of vinegar. Store in a cool pantrv. TO PREVENT MILK FROM BURN ING. When milk has to be boiled and there is a fear of its burning, a good plan is to boil rapidly a little water— just enough to cover the bottom' of the pan—before putting in the milk.

CHARACTER IN CHINS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 11 June 1914

CHARACTER IN CHINS. A pointd chin is said to be a sign of craftiness, wisdom, and discretion. A soft, fat, double chin shows sen suousness and an indolent tempera ment. A flat chin shows a cold, hard na -ture; a small chin indicates weakness, want of will power, and cowardice. A retreating ohiu is a sign of silli ness, and, if the brow bo shallow, ot imbecility. Whero the space between the'nose and tho rod part of tho lip is short and very sharply cut,it indicates re finement and delioacy of perception, but not much power. There is no force of intellect where this space is usually short A rather long but not flat upper lip denotes an eloquent person. A very lolig upper lip, which is ilat, and which belongs to a straight, or formless, or too thick-lipped mouth, is a sign of a low and vicious type of character. A square and massive chin shows strong and determined will.
