pe ^obnaii) ^oimen, Established 1888. THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 1914. Local and Geaaral Items. A Nice Rain;all.—Light showers i oE rain bewail to tall in this district 1 shortly before midnight on Monday, I and continuing at intervals until duy I break on Tuesday a total of 43 points was registered. More rain appeared i to be imminent during the morning, but eventually tho^clouds dispersed and a westerly wind dashed all hopes of further showers. In the evening, however, the sky became overcast again, and rain fell to the extent of 21 I points, or G-l altogether; Judging by phone reports to hand from neighbor ing places the rain was a general one, and though the quantity was not half of what was desired still it is reckoned to be sufficient to start the crop's, and it should also materially benefit the grass paddocks. A good feature of the rain was that it came sufficiently light to enable almost every drop to soak in the ground where it fell, and the result is already visible in the fresh...
HOW TO WASH HAIR BRUSHES. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 23 April 1914
MOW TO WASH HAIH URUSI1ES. j There is really ajt art in the proper washing of hair brushes ; j the best brushes may bo ruined by j cureless washing, and if the bris j ties tire allowed to become soft, a j hair brush becomes practically use 1 less for its intended purpose. Many t people cleanse hair brushes by1 ' covering them with wheaten flour, ' and simply rubbing the hristles to ! gether. This method, however, is j not thoroughly satisfactory. To j keep your brushes in good condi tion, proceed in the following man-' ner. Have two shallow dishes, one of moderately hot, the other of cold water. To the first dish, ; which contains, say, a ijtiart of j water, add a dessert spoonful of ! ammonia. Nou* take your brushes, j one by one, and keep dipping the | bristles up and down in the water j '.being careful not to vet the backs), and in a minute or two the dirt und dust will cotno out of them as if by magic, leaving them beautifully white. Now dip up and down several times in the se c...

Manuring Grass Lands. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 23 April 1914
Manuring Grass Lands. A~ crop of li ton of meadow4 hay per acre contains on the averago -191b. nitrogen, 611b. potash, and | l24lh. phosphoric acid. The ques \ tion ci the appropriate manuring of j grass lands is complicated by the ^questions ay to whether it is in i tended for pcriuuuent pasture; or | to he cut for hay ; and whether } grass or clover is to predominate. I It may he stated generally that the proportion of clover-is incre^s ! ed by the application of manures | containing potash and phosphoric i acid. MJifi diminished by the appli I cation of nitrogenous manures. Too j heavy manuring of any kind," espe cially nitrogenous, tends to the growth of coarso grass. Manures containing lime, such as plaster, al so promote the growth of clovers. For grass the best results were ob tained by Lawns and Gilbert in England by the application of min eral (superphosphate and kainit), together with sulphate of am monia. Heavy grass crops were obtained, to the almost total ox i elusion o...
THE FARM. Echelon Milking Stalls. AT HAWKESBURY AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 23 April 1914
THE FARM. K Echelon Milking Stalls. AT HAWKESBURY AGRICUL TURAL COLLEGE. Compared with our old hails, tha echelon milking stalls show to con siderable advantage, especially in the fact that a comparatively small building (31 feet x 10 feet*) ' is all that is required to milk sixteen cows at a time. Since this build ing can bo built and fitted up for from £100 to £130, according to locality, it is well worthy of con sideration as an effective and com rarathely cheap building for milk ing purposes. Originally the "stalls" were mado of wood, the uprights entering the concrete floor, but they are now constructed of iron piping, which is bolted to the walls, and the floor is thus loft free from obstruction, a decided advantage when clean ing. The construction of the floor is rathor different from tho usual method, as the expense has been cut down as low us possible by filling up with packed sand, and putting 2 inches of reitiforcod con creto on the top. There might he some doubt as to wh...

[ Our Convicts. JjHAWX FltOM TWO TYl'KS. Criminals may bo divided into two I classes. Many men tiro to ha found in the criminal ranks tt'ho, though constantly iu ami out of prison, uro j not criminals tit heart, but full iu to crime from fin inherent weak- | nchs 01* character. They are often j creatures of impulse, wanting ia in- j I telligence, und incapable of pursu | I Hi?# even with moderate wuceess, ui criminal lite. '.Many &lt;/ thorn are! victims of their passions, or dupes ; of others. Though able to earn ■ their livelihood when removed from. ! the sphere of temptation, numbers are incapable of struggling against adverse circumstances, and, cense quently, fall to the first temptation that is likely to satisfy their press ing requirements. Although there are many whoso first fall from the patli of reetitudo is due to misfortune, there arc .others who have either deliberately adopted or continued iu a crimi nal Kfe.'from choice.

If at any time . you are giving beef tea as a bever age, add Just a little cream to it. This makes it nourishing.
Ladies' Column. WONDERS OF A SMALL FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 23 April 1914
Ladies' Column. a WONDERS OF A SMALI. FRUIT. Is it not obvious that the fruit which gives character to such a noblo preparation fis the Christmas pudding must bft something more than ordinary ? The Christmas pudding of the British Isles Is | world-famous—and justly so. Ima gine what it would bo like without currants. Tho mere suggestion miakea i one shudder 1 That famous institu tion owes Its fine flavour to tho prosenee of currants. Other well known sweets similarly indebted , aro the minco-plo, tho Eccles cake, tho currant cake, and a host c f others. A general principle that holds good in all circumstances is that where thcro are currants there is sweetness—and what a sweetness, what a charming, caressing flavour is in tho fruit I Of courso the uso of tho frult_ Is most beneficial to health, to sny nothing of the eco nomy of it.

A Nursery Chair. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 23 April 1914
A Nursery Chair. This nursery chair is such a simple contrivanco nml so very useful tliut tlie wonder is no one thought of it till now. A woman has the credit of inventing it. —Tho chair is fitted with two 'drawers to contain all that is necessary in dressing baby. The drawers aro divided into com partments to hold the safety pins, powder puff, handkerchiefs, brush and comb, feeding utensils, and odds and onda which every mother likes to have handy for baby's toi let. There is no doubt this device would greatly simplify the some what trying operation of dressing n j fractious baby, uitd save nurse or j mother much unnecessary trouble. | The nursery chair is so simple of [ construction that, there is no re.i [ son why a handy man should not ! adapt one for household use out of I h common kitchen chair, one of the [ square, solid, old-fashioned kind.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. I If you want to heat a Ant-iron in | your room, a tin pl&to over tho gas-jet will enable you to bent tho iron twico as quickly.
