WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD BE UP. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD BE UP. It is a common belief among farm ers that a post will last longer if set in the ground the reverse of the way n grew in the tree, in other words, with the butt end up. Accordingly, one sees many posts,< especially end and gate posts, with the small end down. The supposition is that sap in a tree is always ascending, or at least that it is easier for,the sap to go up than down. Consequently, it is argued, turning a post upside down tends to prevent the rise of water, helps to keep the wood dry, and, therefore, renders it less liable to de cay. As a matter of fact, sap or water can flow in either direction with equal facility and the popular notion to the contrary is incorrect. Careful experiments on the relative durability of po^t timbers have been made by the Ohio Agricultural Experi ment Station (says the "Scientific American") and the above question was considered. One fence in par ticular contained 1'56 black locust posts, of which 8G ...

Coming of Age. BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION AT GALA. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

Coming of Age. BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION AT GALA. Between two and three hundred people, mostly Lismore and district residents, invaded the Gala homestead on Saturday afternoon. It was a peace ful invasion, however, made at the in vitation of Mr and Mrs Edwin Currie to celebrate the coming of ape of their only son, Mr Clive Currie, who, like his parents, stands high in the estimation of all with whom he has come in contact. The grounds which surround the picturesque Gala homestead made an ideal spot for such a gathering, and the weather was as perfect as though ordered specially for the occasion. A band of four pipers from Gamperdown, dressed in Highland costume, enlivened the proceedings with stirring selections of Scotch and Irish airs, the children amused themselves with racing and romping through the grounds, and their elders spent a very pleasant and soci able-if quieter-time together. Afternoon tea was served on the lawn, and was greatly enjoyed. When this had been disposed of, the ...

DAIRYING. POINTS IN CHEESE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

DAIRYING. POINTS IN CHEESE-MAKING. , For hard-pressed cheese, where a ripe milk is required, it is best to use night and morning's milk mixed. In the case of making cheese from sweet milk, such as some varieties of un pressed cheese, it is often most satis factory to use one meal's milk only. , The rennet muftt De very carefully added to milk that is overripe, as the acidity in the milk stimulates the ac tion of the rennet, making it work very .quickly. Unless great care is exercised, the milk '11 be over-stir red and rendered unless for cheese making. It is most important that the curd, be of uniform consistence throughout, and this is obtained by judiciously stirring in the rennet and taking pre cautions to prevent the temperature of the renneted milk falling. Keep the vat covered, and water a little warmer than the milk in the vat jacket. Whey from cheese making may be set in tanks, and the cream skimmed off the next clay, before using the whey for pig-feeding. Whey cream can be ...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene," in Melbourne. We often hear of folks being "blue," .tout have never seen it bo nearly ex emplifled as at the Repertory Thea tre ball, where several ladies were blue from head to foot literally, for they even displayed blue hair. This was the first time in Melbourne that ,the new dyed wigs have been seed .in any numbers, and we have not yet quite decided whether we like them or no*" <-»f course, we ere aecu3 .tomed to the coiffure which is so .'deep orange in hue that it is prac tically majenta. We have had a num ber of these of late years, but tho new tones are quite a novelty. I can jiot say they are nearly as becoming as the natural colored hair. The dark moonlight blue is certain; r more becoming than the light saxe ..tones, and in one or two instances the purple proved really effective, but . on the whole these colored wigs can .not be voted a success. Certainly ?one cannot conceive of anyone going the length of dyeing her own hair. jlc i...

A Persuasive Tongue. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

A Persuasive Tongue. At school in Cornwall, Mr. Rudyard Kipling, never a brilliant scholar, was known as "Gigs" (i.e., "gig-lamps," meaning spectacles,), and was esteem ed because lie won the confidence o£ an austere spinster who kept, the lo cal tuckshop, with the help of three cats, She hated the college youths, grudgingly took their cash, and stern ly denied them credit. But "Gigs" ,went round one day, and, while his companions were bursting vim sub dued laughter, ho blandly "talked cat" to the old lady, and succeeded in wlr< ning her confidence to such an extent that his name-the only one-was placed on her books.

LIVE AND LET LIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

LIVE AND LET LIVE. At a travelling circus many years ago a clever and pretty trick of horsemanship used to be performed. A horse was led into the ring carry ing on his back what looked like an old tar barrel, with which he trotted at first slowly round. Presently ha began to quicken his pace, "and as he did so, one end of the barrel was pushed out by some unknown means, and out popped a human head; next a pair of arms pushed themselves out; then the barrel fell to pieces, and a rough-looking countryman, dressed in a loose, shaggy coat, stood up on the horse's back, holding a whip in his hand, which he cracked. The horse at once broke into a swift gallop, and the man pulled off the great coat, which he threw down, showing that he had on another one underenath. As the horse went faster and faster, his rider stripped off his other coat; then a third; then a fourth. He seemed to have enough coats on to furnish an old clothes shop, and ap parently he did not care in the least what became...

VORACITY OF THE JACKASS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

VORACITY OF THE JACKASS. Mr. R. G. Wise, of The Springs, Woodford, had a curious experience the other day. While driving his bul lock dray he noticed a laughing jack ass apparently battling with a snake by the roadside. Taking his whip handle he went over to the scene of the conflict with the view of helping the bird to overcome its enemy. On approaching, however, he saw that the battle was over, and that the kookaburra had commenced to swal low the reptile-a green snake 4ft. Sin. long. He had got down about Din. of the head end and there the snake stuck, the bird being neither able to complete its. absorption nor to eject it. It was Its efforts to get rid of the snake t>at had led to the vio lent struggle which drew the atten tion of the passer by. Mr. Wise pick ed up the "combination," the bird be ing unable to offer resistance, and carried it home, an'd secured an excel lent photograph of the still firmly united pair. Then he hauled out the snake by main strength and allowed t...

Empire Day. DEKIUNALLUM. The school committee arranged to celebrate Empire Day with a picnic and sports meeting for the .scholars, and thanks to the generosity of the .sub scribers, a good afternoon's fun was enjoyed.

Afternoon tea, provided on a generous scale by the ladies of the district, was then partaken of, and was much appreciated by all.

A Mark cf Nationality. Sir David Gill, the famous astrono mer, was once emphasising the extra ordinary care and minuteness with .which astronomical observations were taken. One observation, he said, was rather similar in its extreme minuteness to attempting to see the hundredth part of the diameter of a -threepenny-hit that was a mile away. "One can see that you're a Scots man," retorted one of his hearers. "Nobody else would bother about the hundredth part of a threepenny-bit a mile away!"
