HINTS FOR THE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 3 October 1912

HINTS FOR THE HOME. A great convenience when cleaning house is a stick with a notch in the end that will lift picture cords off the hooks without so much as step ping up and down. When patching wall paper tear thU edges of the piece about to he useid. When pasted upon the wall a teat in thle paper shows less than a cut with a knife or scissors. If a meal has to be taken within two or three hours of going to hbed, to sleep on the left side in to give the stomach a task which is dliftcatl in the extreme to perform. Pillow slips should be a half inch narrower than the pillows they are to cover. This snugness in tit inatres the pillows standing upright when the bed is made up. A clean brick represents an excel lent makeshift stand for a fiat-iron. Brick retains heat better than the perforated metal rests which are ulsu allyj employed for the purpose. If cooked meat is ready, for the table before it is required, place in a dish and set over a pan of bolling water placed on the back of th...

STRAW AS ROAD-MAKING MATERIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 3 October 1912

, I TRAW AS IUOAD-MAKING MATERIAL. It in claimtcd that straw is proving remarkably practical as a road-ntk ing material on the extremely sandy roads in Missouri. Its practicability: was discovered some time ago by watermelon haulers, who were in the habit of drying up boggy places by throwing straw in them. 'These places soon became hard and firm, and last year an entire stretch of road was attempted. This also proved successful, and now about fifty mil?s of straw roado is under construction. The method of construction adopted in to cover tlhe road with wheat straw twice each year to a depth of about one foot. The straw in then covered with sand from the road, and soon becomes firmly embedded in it by the action of the passing traffic. According to reports, the mixture soon cements itseol together so that a surface as firm as a crusedl stone road is secured. - We may not have a sandy soil, butt we have the straw, and tie experi ment is worth' trying,-"Country lie.'" in Canada: 1341<...

THE ORCHARD. THE JONATHAN APPLE IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 3 October 1912

TEM ORCHARD. TIHE JONATHAN APPLE IN NINW SOUTH WALES. Specialisation is doing much to improve the producing capabilities of the Jonathan. During the past ten years the type of tree has, under in telligent management, altered con :iderably until now one would almost fail to recognise in the vigorous growing trees more than I t passing resemblance to the spindly, weak growing specimens to which we were fant becoming accustomed. It is not that the characteristics of the vari ety" have undergone a change, but that growers have arrived at a bet ter understanding of the requirements of the tree, and that many of ths? :lre, therefore, getting more out of it than previously. When the orchard soil is fairly good, and the trees have been well looked after and carefully primed, a far stronger growing tree is the result. Neither has fruit pro duction suffered, as stronger wood development has been promoted. Not so long ago it was customary to snip oil the lateral wood close to the base and as i...
