A HIDEOUS TRAFFIC. WORN-OUT ENGLISH HORSES CONVERTED INTO FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 16 July 1914
A HIDEOUS TRAFFIC. WORN-OUT ENGLISH HORSES CONVERTED INTO FOOD. Mr, Philip Gibbs, -writing Jin .the "Graphic" some years ago, described the via dolorosa of worn out English horses on their way to Belgian and Dutch slaughterhouses, and he made a strong appeal to Englishmen to stop this hideous traffic, which is undoubt-^ edly a lark stain on Britain's fame as" a humane nation. Since then many other appeals have been made for mercy for the poor" animals, who, after years of faithful toil on English high ways and in English fields', are sold for a few pounds, shipped off to .foreign parts, in fair weatner or foul, and after horrible sufferings are killed and converted inro butcher's meat for hu man consumption. But it is painful to know that jn spite of Government action—which followed the outburst of popular indignation—leading to more stringent inspection of exported _ ani mals, the traffic still continues, on a large scale, and that the horrors of in are scarcely diminished. Mr. Gib...
THE NEW DEVON. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 16 July 1914
THE NEW DEVON. The new type of Devon is a big lusty, beef-producing animal, full of flesh and capable of growing to good weight. This rapid change which has been .brought about m the form of tn© breed has been dedicated by the pres sure of circumstances. The short horn was proving such a veritable ri val to 'the old type of Devon that for commercial purposes, it has supersed ed it largely, and the step which was taken by ilie Somerset breeders, in tue lirst place has rehabilitated 'he Devon in districts where it was losing its hold. There is evidence thai breeders are quite alive to the neces sity of settling down to a type; but they snould not make the mistake ot endeavoring to make the breed too big, as o-her wise they may fly to faults they wot not of.

I A COMPOSITE INTERVIEW. WITH SIXTEEN SERVANT GIRLS One of the humorous weekly jour nals with, which Londoii abounds, re cently published a series of grotesque drawings depicting England's unknown heroes. There was, for instance, the man who tendered the taxi-cab driver his legal fare, and heroes of the do mestic variety typified by the husband who argued with his mother-in-law. An Australian series might now com mence wuli the reporter who yester day interviewed sixteen imigrant do mestic servants at one and the same time. It was at the Domestic Help er's Home at Norwood, a building suf ficiently palatial to inspire one with a degree of awe on the doorstep; and the "interviewees" so 10 speak were the girls who arrived at the outer harbor on the Monday morning on board the P and O branch sLearner Borda. Mrs. Moore, the kindly ma tron of the Home, greeted the coura geous pressman in the hail, and escort ed him, all unprepared, lnio a large room, which seemed to his startled eyes, to ...
SHRINKAGE OF CATTLE IN TRANSIT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 16 July 1914
SHRINKAGE 0F CATTLE IN 1 TRANSIT. I The United States Department of Agriculture lias published, a bulletin giving the results of an extensive in quiry into the shrinkage m weight of beet cattle in transit irom. (the west. The inquiry covered actual commercial conditions, the total comprising over IUjOUO cattle, and included the drive from the ranch to (the railroad, and movement beyond point of origin. The shrinkage was, of course, variable, but tne large number of animals used as a basis, it is believed, gave a fair av erage. Tiie net was therefore found to range all the way from 15lb to . per head, or from 2.15 to 7 per cent., depending upon the length of time and other conditions, and was found to vary in direct proportions to their live weight when conditions were the same and all other factors were equal. The shrinkage during the first twenty-four hours was greater p r o p or-ti o n ato] y than for any succeeding period of the same duration, and proportinately smaller for each ...

There -was a fair attendance, but very little interest was shown in the match. Hupanyup had the misfortune to lose the services of Joe West in the first quarter through his getting a terriffic kick on the shin bone, and conse quently played the remainder of the game-with 17 men. Although there was nothing to warrant it, the game was decidedly rough. The first quar ter gave Hupanyup a lead of 2.3 to 2 goals. The second was a " cake walk" for Murtoa, who put up 5.7 to 0.1, and in the third repeated it with 1.10 to 1.4. The final was more even, the visitors scoring 2.1 to 1.2, leaving the result—viurt'oa, 10.18 (78), Hupan yup, -4.10 (34.) Out of a weak team Rupanyup had the b^sfc man on the ground in Fullart-on, well supported by West, Duulop and Payne. P. Sprake, of Murtoa, was very deadly g...

RECIPE FOR SKIM-MILK CHEESE [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 16 July 1914
RECIPE FOR SKIM-MILK CHEESE The skim-milk must be left until it is quite thick, then well strained, which can be done by hanging it up in a clean linen bag. When drained dry add salt to taste, and rub the curds well to make them appear &lt;nealy. Stand in a warm place near a stove for a few days till they get gluey. Then put into a saucepan, and fry with fresh butter till all is well melted. Run into a basin, and leave to get cool. It is then ready for use. This recipe is used by many farmers' wives in Western Australia, and is well recommended. An important experimental trial was made on the L.N.W. Railway be tween Foleshill and Nuneaton with a petrol-driven rail car. The teat was a complete success, and foreshadows a revolution in railway locomotion. The car is 60 feet in length and is of full railway carriage gauge. It runs smoothly on two sete of bogle wbreela, and can be pulled up very BTGI&B&tr,
