MY FAVORITE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
MY FAVORITE GAME. Doris Maxwell, who lives at Main street, Sheffield, Tag., writes:—Dear Aunt Connie,—• This is the first time I have -written to you, and I hope you will accept me as one of your many nieces. I will take for my sub ject My Favorite Game and Why i Like It. My favorite game is musical chairs. The game is played as follows:—Put a row of chairs down the middle of the room; there must be one chair not enough. One person plays a piano, or any other musical instru ment. Meanwhile the players walk round the chairs, and the instant the music stops they all make a dash for the cfaairs. The one who does not get a chair has to take one, and sit in one corner of the room, and has to whistle till all the others get out. Why I like it is because everyone can play in it. I learn music, and like it very much. I have two brothers and one sister. Father has been takkig "The Weekly Times" for a number of years. I always enjoy reading the "Yours' Folks' " page, I am 11 years and S month...
THE KITCHEN GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
THE KITCHEN GARDEN The frequent use of hoe and rake in the rows between forward vegetable crops is one of the best: aids that the gardener can command in warm dry weather. By keeping the surface - in ■fine tilth less watering is needed. "WTien the top of the bedJ becomes hard as the result of infrequent working the soil opens in small cracks. Moisture escapes through these lis sures and a deal of. valuable plant food goes off in evaporation. An effort should be made to retain this nourish ment by creating1 and maintaining a layer of very fine earth. It makes an effective "dust mulch- Judicious wat ering and light surface cultivation will result in the production of. crisp, tender vegetables in the warmest and worst months. • After the vegetable garden has been watered, and the soil is sufficiently dry on top, the surface should be worked with hoe and rake. This will prevent any of the moisture drawn from «the underlayers by capillary action escap ing through cracks that are certain ...

THE STORY OF SIXPENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
THE, STORY OF SIXPENCE. I*ena Wrench, who lives at Ten Mile, via Mansfield, writeisDear Aunt Connie,—I;vwill take for my subject The Story of Six pence. There was once a very thin and miserable little girl. There was never enough food or fire in her home. One particular afternoon she had wandered into the garden of St. Paul's Cattiedrall A 'little girl was feeding pigeons ori broken biscuits, when she pulled out a handkerchief and shook it vigorously, and as she did so a silver coin rolled unnoticed towards the girl, and disappeared among the grass. The girl saw it, and. all red and excited, turned to restore it to the little girl, when, to her as tonishment, she was gone. She looked at the sixpence and said, "Why should I not keep it?" Slxie had never had sixpence of her own before. She sat down, and soon fell asleep. She was awakened by a child's tear ful voice, saying, "I am sure I dropped it here, and it's grandma's bright sixpence, and I want it so much. The girl opeaed her eye...
THE FLOWER GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
THE FLOWER GARDEN Cactus dahlias, chysanthemums, and autumn flowering rose bushes must be well nourished during the next few weeks. Neglect at this period will have a bad effect on the size and quality of the blooms. Further sowings of tender annuals should be made in rich, loamy beds, where growth will be rapid. Satisfactory results will be obtained from asters, phloxes, balsams, zinnias, cosmos, amaranthus, and miniature sunflowers. Gladioli plants produce at tractive color effects in the open gar den during the latter part of summer and throughout the autumn. Small plots planted at fortnightly intervals from now until the end of April will furnish a continuous supply of choice spikes for decorative purposes from the beginning of April until the end of Aug'ust. Various kinds of shrubs may be in creased by means of cuttings next month. A small plot to receive these should be prepared in a well sheltered part of the garden. Rich sandy loam will give the best results. The land should...
Seasonable Work THE ORCHARD [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
Seasonable Work By "CUDTUS.^ THE ORCHARD Fruit picking1 is general. jll wxu engage constant attention until the end of March. Crops in some districts are lighter than usual. In the aggre gate yields will be up to the average. The season is later than last year. Apples and pears are developing satis factorily. Space has been secured for the export of 400,000 cases. The export season will commence on February 11, when the steamer Argyllshire will leave Melbourne for London with a large consignment of apples, pears, and plums. It is ex pected that the firm-fleshed varieties of plums will carry as well as,, the hard fruits. If these anticipations are realised the shipment of stoned produce to oversea-markets will be a great benefit. Recent advices indicate that there will be a good demand for Australian fruit in the Eritish and European markets from the opening of the sea son. Supplies of American cold stored apples had a damaging effect on last year's early consignments. The par tial f...

CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
CONSERVATORY AND POT - PliANTS The watering of plants that are in full growth, and the suppression of in sect pest's will' claim a deal of atten tion in the conservatory and plant houses during the next six weeks. Pre parations for a supply of winter flower ing plants must not be overlooked. Experienced growers start the seeds of cinerarias, calceolarias,- and primulas ajbout the middle of December. 1 The resultant plants come into flower in June and the early part of July, when they are mos:t appreciated. Those who have not sown seeds of these handsome winter flowering' subjects should lose no time in doing so. Shal low pans or boxes filled with a com post of fine rich loam and leaf mould should be packed moderately firm. Seeds of each variety are very fine. They should be sprinkled thinly on the surface, and pressed in with a piece of broad flat board.' A thin' layer of fine loam may then be scattered over the seed beds. As soon as the seedlings are ^ in the second leaf, and ' stu...

THE WEEKLY TIMES SATURDAY, JANUARY 17, 1914. AUSTRALIAN BUTTER IN LONDON [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
SATURDAY, JANUARY 17, 1914. AUSTRALIAN BUTTER Iti LO&'BOi If Mr H. W. Osborne's report upon the position in regard to Australian butter in London has thrown no new light upon the position, it has at least served as an emphatic reminder. Af ter investigation in Great Britain, Mr Osborne tells us that the inferior qual ity of Australian butter is bringing discredit on the Commonwealth: "Our own people," he adds, "would not place some of it upon their tables ... yet we expect the British public to con sume this butter." Later he reports: —"I also saw rancid rubbishy stuff, ap parently made from stale cream, with package and general appearance very faulty. Tet 'Australia' was embossed on all such packages." Unless imme diate steps are taken to correct this deplorable condition it is difficult to see how the hopes of the producers and the Agricultural Department for an ex pansion of the industry are to be real ised. In his last review of the trade Mr P. J. Carroll said it was evi...
Lady Fuller Says Farewell [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
... Lady Fuller Says Farewell Lady Fuller's farewell to the people of "Victoria is a most graceful one. There are messages and messages, and there is always a telepathic something between the lines that marks out the sincere farewell from the merely offi cial utterance of conventional senti ments. It has been said, probably with as high a degree of truth as is found in most broad generalisations, that the British are a deferential people; their sense of what may be called social discipline is in most cases so marked that anything in the way of personal feeling is rather hidden in the obser vance of ceremony. The caste feeling is strong•; but in this instance prece dent has been reversed and Lady Fuller may rest assured that, apart from her position, her personal qualification^,, &lt; have gained for her a permanent pla&e:. in the regard of the people. Her s^se of her obligations has been a ^evl&e one, and the manner in which | tfo&lt;|y,; have been ca...
Local Industries Stand the Test [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
IDocal Industries Stand the Test * Prejudices are among the hardest things in the world to kill, and the pe culiar thing about them is that they can flourish when they have no justi fication in truth and even when they are against the interests of the person who entertains them. The prejudice against Australian-made goods is one of them. Whether men and women j become incapable of thinking a new thought, or whether there is something naturally repulsive in the act, the fact remains that they do it as seldom as possible. Mr T. Y. Harkness, boot manufacturer, described the nature of this prejudice in his evidence before the Interstate Commission. He quoted the case of a man who shrank from the infection of a fresh idea as if it were a dangerous disease. This con servative purchaser had found it im possible to get suited in the shop where he had gone, until he had tried on a certain pair of boots. These boots re mained satisfactory till he was in formed of the damaging fact that they b...
Girls and Their Training [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
Girls and Their Training It is strange that in these days of general education, primary, secondary, higher, and special training, there should be so much scolding at its ineffi ciency. Is the critic hypercritical, or is the scholar undertaught; or should the whole system go into the melting pot? This is said in reference to the educa tion of girls, for -whom educationists during the last two generations have especially catered. The present girl's grandmother was turned out of Miss Pinkerton's Academy with a little knowledge of reading and the use of the globes, and then she was ready for the battle of life. Her poorer sister had no instruction at all. Nowadays State schools and young ladies' colleges gi-ve more strenuous tone to learning; yet there is the perpetual criticism of re sults, and the pupil or graduate is mourned over as an educational failure. One of the latest critics is Dr. Caro line Desel, of Michigan, who has roundly condemned the modern college, as she knows it in A...

TO PRESERVE FLOWERS A SIMPLE METHOD. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914
TO PRESERVE FLOWERS A SIMPLE METHOD. To keep cut. flowers fresh. for the longest possible period is a problem "which frequently confronts decorators. Some useful hints are given in "Floral Decoration." "To get the longest possible life out of cut flowers,' it is remarked, "fill all vases with water every night, and take them out of the room in which they have been all day, and put them on' the floor of the hall. It is important that the glasses are filled with water, not merely taken out as they are, as many flowers, such as daffodils and tulips, which have fleshy Btems, will often empty a narrow vase in less than 21 hours. When flowers arrive from the florist or the-gardener, the stems should be either broken or cut with a sharp knife, never with scissors. The object of cutting or breaking them is to open the pores or "water passages of the stem.- If scis sors are used they have a tendency to pinch the stems, and thus ' do more harm than good. It is this first cut ting of the stems...
