CLEANING A BLACK DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

CLEANING A BLACK DRESS. In cleaning black dresses first re move all dust with a stiff brush ; then prepare a wash with three pints of warm water and half a pint of liquid ammonia. Rub the dress thoroughly and smoothly with a piece of black cloth dipped in the solution (laying the dress on a deal table, if possible), and hang it, when cleaned, in the air to dry. If very much soiled, rinse it with a sponge wrung out of clean, fresh water, after having applied the ammonia wash. See that the dress 'hangs straight while drying, and pull it out from time to time to prevent shrinkage. Press It on the wrong side with a hot iron when it is al most, but not quite, dry, and hang it away at once in a wardrobe.

GIRLS MEN ADMIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

GIRLS MEN ADMIRE. Do not be concerned if you lack good looks. If you should worry about, anything in connection with yoytMf let-.it be -because of your lack bf goodness or of patience, or of sweetness in disposition. Outside aooearances count fr- n certain ex tent. A man admires a pretty face I or figure as he admires a pretty picture, but it does not follow that he. will marry a pretty face for it self any more than he would marry a pretty picture. Men want substan tial rather, than ornamental quailties in a wife. Look about you, and note how many husbands have selected wives with plain features. These men were looking for soul qualities —the lasting qualities— of woman hood. Beauty is rare. And it may cover a multitude of failings. The handsome woman may have great poverty of; spirit, a scornful disposi tion,, or a cold heart. . She may lack the essence of real charm, and fajl to give promise of happy comrade ship in marriage. .: Men know this. With a-few rare exceptions aside, yo...

CARE OF THE PIANO. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911

CARE OF THE PIANO. If a house has to be left without servants take care to shut out damp ness from the piano, or it may be ruined. Some musicians advise hav ing it tuned the last thing before the house is shut. It should also be cov ered with rubber sheeting or heavy unbleached calico. See that the in siae 01 tne piano is well ousted anc the wires are wiped over with a slightly greased rag to prevent rust ing. This must be carefully done, as too much is worse than none. Several lumps of camphor placed in side the piano will keep away moths. Be sure that the keys are not sticky for the same reason. They should be wiped over with alcohol. Lock the piano when closing a house, or when a caretaker is left in the house, otherwise it may be opened and for gotten.

ANCIENT THRESHING METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911

ANCIENT THRESHING ME THODS. The method of threshing corn in parts of Sicily is considerably anti quated. The farmers generally make their threshing-floor on a flat spot on a wide wind-blown hill-top, and arranged in a goodly pile. Then a wide, circular space is swept and scraped and rubbed until the hard, dry earth, which has not seen rain for several months, becomes like a smooth floor. The sheaves are next cut open anS spread on this: place, forming a thick bed, going up to the knees of the horses, which are now brought here for the threshing. A man stands in the middle, as in a circus, holding the reins and a long whip ; the horses trot round and round and acroSs, as the man directs them; and this goes on all through the long burning day, under the blazing July sun, from daybreak till sunset, with short rests, the grain thus separating from the straw, which remains on the top or is carried to one side by the wind. It takes about four days of tread ing to separate the grain from t...

MIDDLE NAMES FORBIDDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911

MIDDLE NAMES FOR BIDDEN. It is a curious fact that middle names were once illegal. The old English law was very definite as to the naming of children, and, accord ing to Coke, 'a man cannot have two names of baptism.' 'It is requisite,' this law goes on, 'that the person be named by the name of his baptism and his surname, and that special heed be taken to the name of. baptism. ' Royal person ages have always been allowed to have more than one given name, but as late as 1600, it is said, there were only four persons in all Eng land who had two given names. Even a century and a half ago dou ble names were very uncommon.

THE SILVER WANDOTTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911

THE SILVER WANDOTTE. The silver wyandotte has for the last twenty years occupied a pro minient place among our popular breeds. It has never enjoyed the universal popularity of the white, but all the same it is to-day as wide ly kept as ever. The best type pos cpccpc orpat hnnp. n npaf hf-ad. re markably good saddle and hackle stripping, and open, even lacing from breast or thighs. -The silver Wyandotte is also a decidedly pro lific layer, but its eggs— which are white or tinted, as a rule— are too small to give it place with the white Wyandotte and the buff Orpington as a first-rate egg-producing breed. As a table fowl, it is, of course, about on a par with its brethren ;„ it fetches good prices in the second class'trade, but has not the quality, shape or colour of flesh and legs de manded by the best class of custom er. The hens are sitters ?s a rule, and the chickens grow rather quicker than any other members of the Wyandotte family. The vari ety, though hardy, is perhaps, best su...

BLUE LEGHORNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911

BLUE LEGHORNS. The best feature about blue leg horns is that they are very good lay ers of large white eggs, which aver age six or seven to the pound. Through winter they will often lay quite well. In weight the birds run up from 41b to s|lb in hens, and cocks run up to qlb. They are good table birds for home consumption, but, of course, in common with all the leghorn tribe, they do not fetch top prices as table fowls ; that honor will always fall to the heavy breeds. To sum up the advantages of blue leghorns, they are a handsome var iety, and catch the eye.

THE SIZE OF THE FLOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911

THE SIZE OF THE FLOCKS. Let me speak seriously to you once-more about ^overcrowding. If you'ean't mak ri small number pay, then take it-fri ) me that you won't succeed- with a large number in the same space. That way disaster lies, and when I see a man keeping say, twice as many fowls as he has room for, I always want to be nast' and ask him why he doesn't keep pigs or anything else; but not fowls. If a poultry-keeper has more birds than he can look after, or more than he has accomodation for,- there is only one or two things to be done, the first is to sell some of them, and the other is to hasten the end of their existence by taking a firm hold of them by the neck and giving it a sharp twist. To reap the maximum of profit for fowls they must be kept in small flocks. In large flocks the profits are always proportionately less and the work is attended with greater risk when there is -a large stock, there being the danger of disease breaking out and spreading. Those who have start ed...

TRAINING FOR THE SHOW PEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911

TRAINING FOR THE SHOW PEN. Every fancier who has a bird worth showing, is thinking about showing it, and some valuable ad r vice for the training of birds for the show-pen in 'Featherd Life' is particularly appropiate. Some birds are more difficult to train than others (says the writer), and_a much longer time is required to get them accustomed to conditions found in the show-room. How often do I find my finest specimen the most difficult to train, but with sufficient and proper training yet are those that win. Many birds when first placed in a coop are near ly frightened to death. Supposing the bird we are to train is* one, of tj.'is clcss. First; we must prepare a coop sufficient in size to enable the bird to move around without breaking the feathers, and high enough to prevent breaking' the sickles. A box of the right, size may be used, the top being removed and slats put in glace and used for the front.. It must have a door large enough to allow the admit tance of the, bird easi...
