OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. THE LIBERAL OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 July 1914

OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. THE LIBERAL OUTLOOK. Sir Alexander Peacock, the New Premier of Victoria, steps into office almost unnoticed. The average elector is ifiuch more interested in the fortunes of Mr. Watt and Dr. Salmon in Bala clava, in the smallest happening con nected with the Federal fight, than in (he whole policy of Liberalism in the State House. Sir Alexander Peacock and his colleagues may not regret that the battle anent preference to unionists, the cleaning of the rolls, the rights of the Senate, and so forth, will absorb all except a few till the fifth of September has come and gone. But they will assuredly bear in mind that their work is just as important as it would be were the eyes of the electors on it In certain quarters there is ungracious muttering that ministers have not sub mitted a sufficiently dazzling programme. Had they presented members with a long list of proposed measures, when the House met last week, the very people who now sneer " poverty struck " would...

How Kipling was Interviewed in America. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 July 1914

How. Kipling was Inter viewed in America. 1 Iji Chicago, considerably more than twenty years ago, I obtained a chance interview from Hudyard Kipling. At that time Kipling, who was just beginning' to achieve fame through his "Plain Tales from the Hills" and " Soldiers Three," had little use for this country. For one thing, he had tried to make a living with his pen in San Francisco, and had failed. Kipling was in a decidedly crab bed humour when he reached Chi cago on this occasion, and not with out reason. He was on his way from Australia to England. On, shipboard he had made up his mind that he would do no talking for newspapers when he reached this country. Me would jiot .see the San Francisco reporters who be sieged him. But some of them wrote "interviews" with him. any how. In the main they wer„e high ly ridiculous, imaginary interviews, and they put Kipling in a very foolish light. The same thing hap pened in Seattle, Cheyenne, Denver, Omaha, and other cities where he stopped o...

Workhouse Children. — • In January, 1913, the number of children in receipt of relief from the State in England and Wales was close on a quarter of a mil lion, of whom sonic 70,000 were in workhouses or institutions. A little group of Rhodes scho lars, themselves fresh from the great bare spaces of the Empire, formed, in- 1909, the design of transplanting some of these chil dren of the State, and for the last twelve months their plan has been working under conditions most favourable to success at Finjarra, in Western Australia, says the "Graphic." The head of the Farm-School, and founder of the Society, is Mr. Kingsley Fairbridge, a Rhodesian by birth, and a poet by nature, and the boys under his charge at present number thirty-three. They j came from various work-houses in 1 England and Scotland. | They attend the ordinary State | school till tliey are fourteen, but in | their home they get an insight into j farm life.

Porter's Coats as Afghan Uniforms. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 July 1914

Porter's Coats as Afghan Uniforms. L The Amir of Afghanistan is ex ceedingly anxious to Westernise his country, but it is rumoured that some of his subjects are not taking kindly to the reforms. Tho latest step which the Amir has taken is to insist on the ladies of his Court wearing' European clothes. Recently dozens of elaborately-de signed costumes were ordered from Paris. Early this year, says _ a Bombay correspondent, a representative of a Bombay tailor visited Kabul at the invitation of the Amir, and high-class clothes to the value of £'3,000 were sold to the ladies and gentlemen of the Court. The ladies were not permitted to bo seen per sonally or to be measured for their garments, but their measurements were sent out to the tailor. Tho ladies selected their dresses from pictures of the latest Parisian fashions, and after the costumes had been supplied his Majesty .gave a garden-party at which the dresses were displayed. Many amusing features about this craze for European dres...

RECIPE FOR SKIM-MILK CHEESE [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 July 1914

RECIPE FOR SKIM-MILK CHEESE The skim-milk must he left until it is quite thick, then well strained, which can he 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 mealy. 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 test 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 j smoothly on two sets of boglo . wheels, and can be palled up very ■ DTOWOtly, „ 1986. I

USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 July 1914

USEFUL HINTS. I Burps- and Scalds.—For a slight burn or scald apply equal parts of olive oil and lime water, and wrap the part at once in a sheet of cot ton woqI, fixing it lightly with a bandage. At first the pain seems in creased, but this soon subsides. The wool may be left on for three or four days. If lime water is not available olive oil may be used alone, an-d flour or starch dusted over it. Aching Limbs.—Hot salt water is a sovereign remedy for aching limbs caused "by standing too much on the feet, or too prolonged walking, also for tired arms, hands and limbs after continued exertion or strain. The water should be as hot as can well be borne without discomfort, and have plenty of salt in it : but too strong salt will make the flesh itch and burn. For a spraimd ankle, bathe in hot salt water for half an hour, renewing the heat as it cools, wrap in flannel, and repeat the hot bath in three or four hours until re lieved. To Clean Brass and Retain the Polish.—Put some finely po...

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not identity ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents in this column, nor will we in any way hold ourselves responsible for same.] BURSTING-UP POLICY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—It is widely given out that the Federal Land Tax is meant for the purpose of raising revenue, but Mr. Watson the proposer of same as re ported in the " Age" 24/3/06, said, " The motive of the Federal tax is not revenue at all." Mr. Prendergast (Hansard 27/7/04) said, " Men with what would be considered to-day only small estates must also make way." Sir, this is the socialistic " bursting-up" scheme of homes created in most cases by hard work. May I ask, why don't they "burst up" the lands held by the Crown and let all classes have land according to their requirements from one acre to 1000 acres? Why don't they give a poor man a chance for a home in Australia ? It is better to give people opportunities to make homes than to break them up. PAUL MACKENZIE. Nhill, 25/6/14. Evkr-xdod...

THE DAIRY -t A GENUINE GET-RICH-QUICK PROPOSITION. Superintendent Malcolm H.

Sale for the other nine must be found for grading up, or they must be either vealed or raised as beef steers. Breeders of Hol steins are vitallj interested in arous ing the interest of farmer-dairymen in the betterment of their herds, and there is no present better way to ac complish this than by the organisa tion of testing associations. Under this plan an association is formed containing enough herds to give steady employment to a competent man who remains one day at cach place, the cov;s owned by the mem bers of the association being asses sed pro rata to pay the wage...

ORCHARD WORK. PRACTICAL EXPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 July 1914

ORCHARD WORK. PRACTICAL EXPOSITION. Mr. W. P. Chalmers, orchard expert from the Department of Agriculture, gave a practical demonstration of prun ing, grafting and general garden work at Mr. C. Niewand's garden, Murtoa, on Friday, the 19th June, when about thirty persons attended who evinced keen interest in the proceedings, A good deal of valuable information was given, especially about the establish ment of orchards. Mr. Chalmers pointed out:— If the subsoil is stiff, or if there is a bard bottom, it is advisable to subsoil it, which is best accomplished by ploughing with a single furrowed mould board plough followed by a plough without a mould-board. If the soil is poor it is advisable to add about 10 to 20 loads of well-rotted stable manure, thoroughly worked through the soil. The next most important proceedure is to get the very best available trees. When the trees are being removed from the nursery most of the roots are broken and bruised, and it is advisable to remove the bro...

WHY LEAKY POTATO PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 July 1914

WHY LEAKY POTATO PLANTS. ! The most nutritive part or ths; po tato, the part that gives to the po tato its excellent flavour, is the part that- contains the greatest number of starch cells. If anyone will cut a.po tato through the middle he will no-, tice that the potato substance is not homogeneous. Around the outside ot the potato, just beneath the skin, a layer, separated from the inner lajer by a vascular semi-fibrous par tition that is visible on close exami nation. This outer layer is called the corticel, and contains most of the starch of the potato. The best pota toes have this corticel layer t.hic.k, instead of thin—that is, have more starch than the others. The principal chemical element of starch is carbon. The potato plant gets all of its carbon from the air . through the leaves, none of it from the soil. The leaves have the power to dissociate the carbon from the carbon dioxide in the air, and store much of this carbon in the tuber. The larger the leaf capacity and vi g...

WIMMERA FREEZING WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 3 July 1914

WIMMERA FREEZING WORKS. The following letter, signed " Yanke boodle," appears in the " Warracknabeal Post " | Sir,—The directors of the Wimmera .Freezing Works will, no doubt, be making some arrangements for opening the works for the coining season. It is to be hoped they will not overlook the necessity, when selecting their stock-buyers, of appointing men who are proved nnd competent judges of weight nnd quality of stock, and the subsequent handling of them when taking delivery, which formerly proved such a fiasco. In this connection it would he well for the directors to abolish the aggravating deduction of 2A percent, commission which they hive herntofore been m-jkin^. Share holders should not be called upon to sulfer this charge. Tf they sell to other export ing firms direct no such charge is uvula, and us thore hive been 8 everal instances where a seller would only sell " free of commission," it is only justice that the principle should bo cxteuded to 'all share holders alike.

Detectives , \ . watch all visitors and keep the workmen under observation also. . Plain-clothes officers guard 'every/- - entrance, and nobody is allowed to _j* bring in even a small parcel un less it is first examined, for fear ' _ that it may conceal a camera. At' one of the big construction yards one man in every two dozen is thoroughly searched from head to ; ' foot each night on leaving". AH the draughtsmen engaged on the draw-~ ings of a new warship are sworn to secrecy, and the plans are in variably kept under lock and key when not in use.
