BEST DRESSED ROYAL LADY. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 15 August 1914

BEST DRESSED ROYAL LADY. An enterprising Belgian journal hu □lade inquiries as to tile amount ex pended' annually " by Koyal ladies on their to.ilet.tes, and has found the fol lowing facts, says the "Evening Stan dard." Queen Victoria of Spain easily takes the first place as the best dressed Koyal lady. She obtains all ber dresses lrom i'aris", and has to pay over to the great firms of the Hue de la Paix a sum of no less than £bOOO a year. The German Empress- has all her dresses made in Berlin, at a cost not far below £4000. An equal sum is expended by ti e Czarina, who dresses in private very _ simply, and only goes i n tor expensive robes _ on State ..and festival occasions, which, however, are not frequent - in view oi the retired life of the'' Russian Im perial family. The same sum repre sents the cost of dresses to the wife og M. Poincare. Queen Elena ol Italy spends only about £3200 a year, while ihe dress budget of Queen Eliza beth -"f B'iigium does not .exceed £'2000. Her ne...

NOTES ON THE WAR. Conflicting reports have been pub lished concerning the operations of the British and German fleets in the North Sea. _ That &6)^ted. war ships have got into touch is an undoubted fact, but it is not fyown whether a naval engagement of any magnitude has taken place. . Mr M'Kenna, Home Secretary, strongly protested against the publica tion of false news td« promote the cir culation of the newspapers concerned. The trawler Lochness reported hav ing seen two-British cruisers in pursuit of a German destroyer. Shell fell all round the destroyer, and dense smoke went up, indicating that the vessel was ablaze. •' A German Squadron, consisting of 19 vessels, is reported to -have' passed twice between Memel and Libau, in the Baltic, . and . then to have disap peared northward, i .

CROP ROTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 15 August 1914

CROP ROTATION. The rotation of crops is a funda mental practice in good fanning oper ations. The potato is one of the most useful crops in a general rota-, tion, because the clean and thorough cultivation required, as well' as the preliminary deep ploughing and the digging, puts the soil in excellent me cihanical condition. "The olbject of rotating crops is to grow a uniform maximum product . < All crops bene fit by. a change. The fertilty re-J quirements of rio two are_exactly the same'. A soil is benefitted both me chanically and its store of fertility by the changing of crops. For instance, a crop may .' have plenty of the es sential mineral elements of fertility to last for generations, but the amount of those elements" available for the lise of a certain; plant might , be exhausted .by a few years' continuous, cropipinjg. Another crop: would- reauire different elements or different' amo\ints, or for;ms}j ' of the same.-;elements. . By: the- tirne t'hte fh-st i consid...

References to the War. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 15 August 1914

Deferences to the War. References were made in most of the churches on Sunday to the great European war now in progress. Archbishop Carr. nt the Cathedral Hall on Sunday said We cannot commence our proceedings without contrasting our serene, and peaceful position with the' dangerous and troubled condition of so many countries in Europe at the present time. We must- be grateful to the Almighty, who has given to Australia, uninterrupted peace from the very be ginning of the history of her civilisat? ion. We are bound, too, in Christian charity to pray both in public and in private that the horrors of war may be of short duration, and that the return of peace may usher in a period of pro longed tranquility. a Our religious principles, our loyalty and our interests lead us to forget the past and to join heartily with our fellow citizens in defence of themother country, and of the best balanced con sttuition which the world has ever known Mr J G Duffy at the above meet ing said that as C...

BUTTER MILK AND SKIM FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 15 August 1914

BUTTER MILK AND SKIM FOR PIGS. How to feed pigs so as to get the greatest profit from the feed consumed is thus explained by a practical man whose operations are successful. He says butier-milk, skim-milk, and root, crops are not of much value as pig feed when used by .themselves, but are very valuable wheil used with grain, meal, or any other solid .foods. It takes 1201b of butter milk per • day to keep a pig of-lOQlb weight in thriving condition, which*, means - that 12" gallons of buttermilk are equal to about 41b of pollard. But as the 100 lb pig only requires from 31b. to 41b of solid food, and 91b or 121b of water or moisture per day, as that would be too much for the kidneys or other in ternal organs to deal with, and r the 1401b of useless water would have to be kept up to the animal heat at the expense of the 41b of solid matter, ao tliat there would be very little left to put on meat. The most profitable way to use but ter-milk is to add 2Jib of pollard, grain, meal, or .o...

IS FRUIT GROWING POFITABLE? ■ The question. "Is fruitgrowing pro fitable?" was raised at .the meeting of the advisory Board of ." Agriculture in Adelaide the other day by C.. E.

Some oi: the growers had become depressed by the 'dry season, . and . the prices that were oifored for products, and in more than one ; instance there was talk of grubbing -certain trees and currant vines.. .. He asked members who had experience in- the fruit industry whe ther' there was justification for a belief that .fruit growing, and especially the production' of applfes, did. not pay. The Chairman (Mr. Gi H. Laffer, M.P.), wlio is a practical horticulturist, poin ted tiufc that .in. spite of the enormous 'quantity pf.. apples produced, prices this yekr-had never .'been higher at any previous time, tinder similar circums tances.: iv He said.,that' during, a re cent visit to Tasmania,1, he had; ...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 15 August 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. (By "Ambrosine.") With 'regard to women and their looks, the pendulum has undoubtedly swung right round. Whereas a gen eration ago they were content "to lan guish, after 40. or so, in modest ob scurity, now they fighc. with almost demoniacal strength- to keep in the forefront, and to attract men to' their sides by means of a false juvenility. Please do not for one moment iinng ina that I am finding fault wi h any woman for 'trying to keep young-look ing. That, surely, is no ignoble aim. But the methods .by which she endeav ors to gain this end should at leas* be artistic and not distressing to the beholder. ... However, it seems to me that in'the manner of artificial, additions women are becoming devoid of all modesty, common-sense" and "decency, and dis play themselves to the public gaze gor geously "made up" , without a blush. Take a walk along Collins Street, and you will be struck with the num ber-:.of old women with- glistening, cop pery hair—hair whose brigh...

; CONCERNING POULTICES/ „ Poulticing is. one of the most usual methods of applying moist, heat' locally. They ease pain by softening, the tissues and relieving the tension which is the chief cause of pain in cases of inflam mation.' For checking inflammation, large poultices should be used as . hot as possible, but if. matter Ms formed and tlie poultice is applied to assist its dis charge, it should' be very little larger .than the affected spot, or it is apt to have-an irritating effect. Poultices can- hardly be changed too often, and as Boon as they become -cool- or<fB?y they should be removed. If of pro per thickness! from a quarter: to half an inch, they will generally keep hot : for about two hours.1 AVhatever the' material on which the poultice is spread, it must be larger than the size required for the poultice,, and its free edges should bo doubled • inwards as soon as the poultice is spread.
