A Pound in the Penny. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 20 August 1914

A Pound in the Penny. In bad times we have often enough heard of an assigned or a bankrupt estate paying a penny in the pound. But what price an investment which pays you a pound in the penny ? That was the pleasant experience of a Brisbane lady who sent a letter one fine morning down to the secretary, Eight Hour Art Union, Sydney, en closing one shilling. Then Bhe went on with her work and her recreation, forgotting all abont her investment, until—on another tine day—she woke up to find herself the happy possessor of a grandfather clook, value £15. It's some time since tlio writer left school, so he doesu't care to say off hand what percentage this bears to the shilling. Ask some of tho smart girls and boys who know everything. But that wasn't all! The lady, en couraged by her success, invested an other shilling next year, and she won a diamoud necklet and pendant, value £450. This year she will possibly annex tho ,-6850 prize. Her motto— *4HiXCOUilOlV

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 20 August 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. (By "Ambrosine.") Of all their household tasks, womon seem to have tlio most dread of dish washing. "I do not mind the cook ing," we often hear them say, "but i simply cannot stand to wash the dishes after 1 am through eating." Like many other ills irom which we suffer in this troublesome world of ours, "'tis thinking make# them so." Mr. Dooluy would probably tell us that Shake speare nerer had to wash the disiiea, und anyhow he didn't say that about tlus particular form of trouble. But for all thofl 'it's the getting at it,that is the hardest part. With proper pre paration and plenty of soap and hot water, there is no need of such unholy dread of this familiar duty. In the first place, when you dish the food for the table, fill each pot .and pan half full of hot water and let them stand on the back of the stove or range until you are ready to attend to them. In clearing' the table after the meal wipe the plates and platters with a piece of soft paper—old newspape...

Practical Prescription Against Stomach Acidity. By a Specialist. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 20 August 1914

Practical Prescription Against Stomach Acidity. By a Specialist. "Nina-tenths of all cases of stom ach trouble nowadays," says a lending specialist, "are caused by too much acid. In the beginning the stomach itself is not diseased, but if this acid condition is allowed to continue the acid is very likely to eat into the stomach walls and produce stomach | ulcer or cancer, cither of which may render a radical surgical operation necessary, even to prolong life. Therefore, an acid stomach is really a dangarous condition, and should be treated seriously. It is utterly use less taking pepsin and other and or dinary stomach tablets. The excess acid must be neutralised by the ad ministration of au efficient antacid. For this purpose physicians nearly always recommend taking half a tea spoonful of bisuratod magnesia in a ; little water after «ach meal. Larger quantities may be used if necessary, ai it is absolutely harmless. But be sure to got the bisurated magnesia, as other forms of magno...

SEASONABLE POULTRY WOBK. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 20 August 1914

SEASONABLE POULTRY WOBK. By this time most of our leading I poultry-breeders have pens mated up | ready to supply eggs to early custom ers. But to the ordinary poultry keepers and .farmers the next few weeks will be quite soon enough. Too I early hatching is almost as bad for sgg production as too late. It is stid 'that, the early bird catches the early worm, but this does not apply to the early hatched pullet, as she lays too oai'ly when eggs are cheap, and then to cap all she falls into a premature moult just when eggs are rising in value. It is usual to recom mend poultry beginners to hatch the heavy breeds such as Wyandottes, Or pingtons, and Rocks in August, and light breeds, such as Leghorn and Campines, in September. To a cer tain extent this advice is wrong, aa if you have a good strain of heavy breeds tliev are usually quick at maturing and will lay just as soon as any Leghorns I know, by oxperience, that a good laying strain of the heavy breeds quot ed above, will, if hatc...

GRAFTING TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 20 August 1914

GRAFTING TREES. Generally speaking, tho most suitable time for grafting is in tho spring, just when the buds on the trees to be grafted show signs of swelling. Tho following rules should be observed: — 1. Out off the shoots from which the scions or grafts are to be made beforo uiey start growing, keeping them in a cool cellar or shed until wanted. 2. in preparing the scions, cut them into lengths of 4 to 6in., each carrying three or four buds, and from i to jin thick. 3. In heading back the trees, not to shorten to the trunk, or even to tho main branches, but cut back to wood ranging from lin. to 3in in diameter. 4. Pare every cut surface smooth with a sharp knife. 5. After inserting grafts by one of the methods herewith described, cover with clay or wax. C. If hot wax Is used, rub a thin iilin of clay on the cut surfaces before applying it. This 1 | serves the double purpose of keeping the shoot moist and preventing blis I tering. GRAFTING LARGE TREES.
