WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
º WOMEN'S INTERESTS. (By "Ambrosine.") In London hat shapes are smaller and more compact than they have been. But these differences do not at all . ietract from their charms and becomingness. Quite the oontrary. Neither do they limit the variety. Small and compact as shapes taken as a whole may he. their variety of line is indefinite. Only the hypercritical will have fault to lind with the spring millinery, taken as a whole.' There are, of course, a few shapes and 'styks that are strange and freakish, but spelt from these there is 'so much to please that unattractive styles can be left alone. Usually she brim is at one side, and it shoots out picturesquely at. the termination of a graoeiul and gradual curve. Some of the brims are given a piIchi here 'nd a lift-up there, giving a "saucy'' as pect to the whole effect. .Some of the shapes have crownis that reach a considerable height, others have crowns of only moderate heigil-., but a brim that is tremendously high at one side, toweri...
MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER "(Prom Our _,pecial Coreoppandeat). .The attitude of, the public biu,' towards motorists awas inhdicted by'tlin -doimonstrition -of the -rowd at Prin ces Bridge the otheli- afternoon wheo a young woman was run down and in jured to an extent thath caused hes death. For a tiune the incensed ci'owc looked- like taking the law into; theoi own .hands. The growing frequenc3 of accidents that maim and kill inof. fensive citizens has roused an antago nistic feeling towards motorists that only needs a spa'rk to cause it to ex plode into somethniig serious. Among the many hun'dreis of motorists there are, of course, many who exercise the greatest care and consideration. But there are others. There are the motor hogs who are drunk with the pride of possession, and the speed possibilities of the machine, and reckless as to con sequences. For the arrogance of these, motorists as a body have to suf fer. .'The remedy-which would be welcomed alike by the public, and by the motorist...
FEEDING WHEY TO YOUNG STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
FEEDING WHEY TO. YOUNG.: STOCK. "Now York Produce RevioieV' has been asking its ~readers to. give itheir:. experience of -feeding whliey to yeouna stock. Here are three of" the replid'es rsceived: - 1st.-The whey should :tho clen?ii :al fed in dlean. troughs. Twielhe~, poliiiids of whey equal about did ioiiul.nd of grain for pig and poultry feed. T?o? pounds of whey equal ene pound "" of :'iun-milk as feed. Sour whey .can be fed, but we prefer sweet sterilised whey.. The troughs should be of ri- tal, such as galvanised iron ones, to, keep them from souring, so they can beo easily cleaned. lave a large trough for pigs and a smaller one for chickens and a faucet a.t one end of the trough, so they can be easily cleaned. 2nd.-Have had no experience along this line. Do not think it could be .made profitable unless there was a large supply of whey and one was able to conduct the business on a large scale. If a factory was already pro vided with suitable quarters for the :animals and th1 m...

POULTRY FEEDING—VARIOUS METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
POULTRY FEEDING--VARIOUS METHODS. The question of feeding is oin all fours with that of housing; there are many different methods and systems, all of which have their ardent sup porters and opponents. It reminds me of the proverb--"One man's meat is another man's poisoi." As in the matter of housing, it is impossible for a hard and fast rulo to be laid down for a system of feeding which shall be equally suitable for all lplaos and climates. The diet suitable for a per on living in, say, Fiji, would not be theo most suitable for some one in the Antarctic regions, and the same reasoning applies to our feathered friends. Of course, the same diet would possibly .sustain life in both the geographical extremes just mentioned, but in treating of the feeding of fowls we do not merely want to feed themn in order to keep them alive, but so that the best return in the shape of eggs may be had from them. Good housing z Td good feeding will always pay better tha.n indifferent housing and indiffe...

A contributor to "Hoard's Dairy man" gives the following recipe for preserving butter, which, he says, has no equal or superior :-Churn and then wash w\\oll the Iutter in several cold waters so as to thoroughly rniilove every trace of the butter-milk. Drain well, spread it thinly, and salt to suit the taste, sprinkle the salt thinly over every portion of it. Work well, drain again, and st in a cold cellar of even niiperature or in a refrigerator untmi next day. Then work it again by means of a butter ladle, and pat it into little cakes the size of an egg, and pat each of these (one at a time) until thin as a wafer, so as to drain off all the water possible. Pack inu earthern jars, filling with 1" in. of the top. Next wring a white linen or muslin cloth from cold water (cutting it to lap a little over the jar), and on the top of the cloth put fine salt until it colles level with the top of the jar. Put a sheet of paraffihn paper over the salt, sea...

A VALUABLE INVENTION [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
A VALUABLE INVENTION All sheep-grower: will be interested to hear of the wonderful profit on wool buying and treating transactions ob tained by a woul-classer named Mr Darrocq, a resident of Ballan, who ha, injvented a machine for treating ' doggy " wool. He bought up the "dags"-which under present conditions are unsaileable-from several of the wool sheds, paying £2 10s for the lot. These were put through the machine and the foreign matter separated from the wool. The latter, when bagged, filled 11 bales. which are expected to sell at £10 per bale, making a profit of £107 10s on the transaction. It is understood that a patent has been taken out for the ma chine, which should be the means of turning into a valuable commodity an article that has hitherto been valueless.

THE FIGHT WITH SORREL [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 8 May 1914
THE FIGHT WITH SORREL The spread of the sorrel weed is a great nuisance in some parts of the south-east. Even when plough-d d .wn in the autumn and apparently kille I, it has been found that atter a crop had been sown the rains which sprouted the young crops also started the p'!ughtd down sorrel, which came up in -uch profusion as to choke tile crop. One resident, who cotmbines farm crops with sheep-breeding, has made an important discovery. He found that after diic'ng to kill the weed roots the sorrel c me up with the first shower. He caused the young growth to be eaten down by the sheep before the plants -eede,, be. cau-e the vitality of the sorrel. is such thAt the seed. wi I sprout up again, even after having passed through the sheep.

SPECIAL CATTLE SALES Bendoc, 5th May. Messrs A. Macarther and Co. report having held a most successful sale at ,their new yards, when they placed be fore a very large attendance of Victoria and New South Wales buyers 1050 head of mixed cattle. The yarding comprised some splendid lines of bul locks showing condition, age and size, which were keenly competed for, and of which all but two pens changed hands at advanced rates. Young cattle were in strong demand and without any ex ception a complete clearance was made, the keen competition causing a decided advance on ruling rates. The quality throughout was very good and the yarding was generally admitted to be the best that has yet been seen in or around the district. We quote some of the principal sales as follows:-Store bullocks, 7, 4 and 5 yrs, £7 9s; 16 do., £7 4s; 4 do., 4yrs, £6 19s; 20 do., £6 11s; 18 do., £6 6s; 6 young builocks, 3?yrs, £5 159; 9 do., 3yrs, £5 5s; 18 do., £5 2s; 10 steers, 14 to 2yrs, £5; 50 do., 2yrs, £4 lOs; ...
