POULTRY HINTS. Gather eggs daily. Never breed from wry-tail birds. Eggs should bo stored in a cool room. Bury the grain in the scratoliing shed. Old hens are only drones on the farm. Cleanliness is essential in the poul try-liouse. If the male bird is sickly neve.* breed from him. . Hens are not profitable after second laying season.

Improvement of Poor Hill Pasture. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 17 January 1914

Improvement of Poor Hill Pasture. There are few aricultural problems oft more importance at the present time tfian the improvement of tho poor lull pasture, which forms such, a large proportion of tho total area ot the country (says the .Mark Lane Ex press). How can this be done? The question is complicated by tlio facts that (1) tlio cost of improvement is often relatively great, owing to the inaccesability of the grazing; (2) in many cases, climatic conditions res triot not only the growth or herbage, but also the grazing season; (3) there are many distinct types of herbage dependent, doubtless, on soil, climate, and general conditions. It follows, from these considerations that tlio question is a dillicult one from an economic standpoint; at the same time-according to the view expres sed in a recent Board of Agricultural leaflet No 275-there are large areas of fairly accessible poor hill pastures which are not as productive as they might be, or as they used to be with in quite re...

The Worst Cook. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 17 January 1914

The Worst Cook. Not only are Englishwomen tho worst cooks; they are the most ex travagant qooks. They actually be lieve chat there must be a certain am ount of waste in cookery. The dust bins of London are mute witnesses to the wicked and shameless waste that goes ow in our kitchens. Sometimes as I pass along the sircet and look at them in the early morning I wonder that ail angry God does not visit us with pestilence as a punishment for exhibitions of mouldy Oread, sour po tatoes, ends of meat and iish in these recptacies. Two persons - one or them doing the cooking in a tasteful, economic manner, can have the dain tiest, most delicious and nourishing food in great variety on 10/ a week in London, even with the present high I prices. It takes thought, it takes | care, it takes common sense, and it takes time. These are things the J average Englishwoman refuses to give to her preparation of food, and I therefore a woman of many' gilts and i graces 111 other directions, she is the wo...

Young Lady's Russian Coat and Skill [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 January 1914

Young Lady's Russian Coat and Skill There is never a season during wliicli a coat and skirt is not a necessary item in a girl's wardrobe but perhaps during the early sum mer mouths its need makes itself more felt than at any other time of the year. In this changeable Aus tralian climate one is apt to call for a little extra warmth in the clothing at any time, and if a suit such as is illustrated above is carried out in sponge cloth, cotton crepe, resilda, or any of the finer woollen materials, it will be found an inestimable boon to the average girl. It is quite simple ■ in con struction, and the design shown may be modified or elaborated at will. The skirt particularly is a very useful one, and is suitable for any material, from thin silk, crepe de Chine or muslin, to velvet, tweed, or serge. The coat, if ciit without the basque, would form an excel lent bodice for a one-piece frock ; the skirt being joined at the .waist line, and a separate belt used if de sired. .The sleeves, als...
