TO GIRLS WHO FAIL TO PLEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 23 May 1914
TO GIRLS WHO FAIL TO PLEApE. To girls who, for some undeflned reason, fail to please In a general way, though here and there they may gain a friend, an admirer, a lover, and who would like' to feel a conscious power to attract a certainty of social success at any time or place, there is this to be said. : To begin with, a soft voice and a quiet manner are desirable;' sympathy Is not easily expressed in boisterous tones or a bustling-mannered demean or. Given these, there are few precepts to remember. J Do not ask a series of deliberate questions, but try to ascertain what subject interests your partner in con versation, and if you know little ', or nothing of it, be sure that an intelli gent listener is always appreciated. Even the dullest-seeming man, the most raw youth, has some coign i of vantage where he feels at home; and if you lead him to talk of this, and you demonstrate the fact that he in terests you, you increase his self-re spect, you convey a pleasant tingle! of self-sa...
THE PIGGERY. MONEY IN PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 23 May 1914
THE PIGGERY. . MONEY IN PIGS. The rearing of pigs was the sub ject of an interesting paper read by Mr. F. Gamlin recently before the members of the Otakeho (New Zea land) branch of. the Farmers' Union. Pigs have the reputation of being dirty animals (said Mr. Gamlin), but if properly housed and looked after, are one of the most profitable, as well as the most interesting, products of the farm, and it is surprising how few farms have a really well-equipped pig gery. It seems where the pig is con cerned "any old thing will do." The extra profit will soon repay the small expenditure on a good comfortable house. For general requirements I consider that a building 30ft. x 7ft., with wood floor, divided Into four compartments, three for breeding sows, each 6ft. x 7ft., a rail placed about 10 inches out from the wall and the same distance above the floor is necessary to prevent the sow from overlaying her young. The remain ing space, 12ft. x 7ft., I use for a fat tening pen, each compartme...

WALLOWING TANK. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 23 May 1914
WALLOWING TANK. The pleasure that a pig gets out;of wallowing in shallow water is taken advantage of- by some breeders : to keep them free from vermin. A tank is made of convenient size. It is ad visable to have it under cover—a shel ter roof of Iron, enough to keep the sun' off It, will do. The tank-Is par tially filled with water, and the sur face of the water is covered with kero sene oil. When the pigs wallow ;in this they get sufficient oil on them ltd destroy vermin. When necessary,' the oil and water are replenished, ntul the tank, of course,- requires occasion al cleaning.' To prevent the forma tion of mud-holes, the ground sur rounding the tank should be surfaced with concrete. i

FEATS OF THE BLIND. Sightlessness Not Necessarily a Handicap to Success. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 23 May 1914
MAT# OF THE BLIND. ■ Sightlessness Not Necessarily a Handicap to Success. It is really wonderful what the bliud can learn to do for themselves. Quite lately, ,a blind, doaf and dumb girl wrote to the secretary of the in stitution where she had been trained to tell her that she was staying in the country, and was greatly enjoying the games of tennis and croquet. It is well known, of course, that El len Keller is similarly handicapped, yet she Is one of the most learned women in the world, and hor books are not only read In America, Britain and the Colonies, but are translated Into many foreign languages. She has declared that if she met a person in Lne Desert of Sahara whom she had met but onco before, she' would know instantly who it was by their charac teristic scent! In New York a blind barber is do ing extremely well, and it is sniil that he has quite as few slips of the razor as the average barber who has all his faculties. In fact, anything which re quires great delicacy of tou...
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 23 May 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Before cooking dried fruits, such as apricots or prunes, soak them in boil ing water instead o£ cold, and when cooking add a teaspoonful of vinegar. This Improves the flavor. A troublesome corn can be eased by a poultice composed of a thin slice of lemon .vorn over it during the day. To. remove a rusty screw, first ap ply a very hot iron to the head for a short time, then immediately use the screwdriver. ■ To test the purity of coffee, pour cold water on it. -If the water as sumes a brownish hue it may be con cluded that there is chicory with it. To remove red ink-stains from, table linen, spread freshly-made mustard over the stain and leave for about half an hour. Then sponge off, and all trace of the ink will have disap peared. Cayenne papper is excellent to rid cupboards of mice. The floor should be gone over carefully, and each hole stopped up with a piece of rag dip ped in water and then in cayenne pep per. For chapped hands take two or three slices of lemon, p...
DAIRYING. POINTS IN CHEESE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 23 May 1914
DAIRYING. POINTS IN CHEESE-MAKING. For hard-pressed cheese, whero ft ripe mllk'ls required;-It. Is beat to ,1180 night ftu'd morning's milk mixed.' In the case of making cheese from sweet milk, such as. some varieties of! im pressed cheese, It Is often most satis factory to use one meal's milk only. The rennet must ue i'ery." carefully added to milk that Is overripe, as j the acidity in the milk stimulates the, ac tion of the rennet,1 making it work very quickly. Unless great care Is exercised, the milk will 'be over-stir red and rendered useless 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 day, before using the whey for pig-feeding. Whey c...

Morse, after wards famouB as the Inventor of the electric-telegraph; was a young paint er studying in London, he made a drawing from a small cast of the Far riese Hercules, intending- to offer it to Benjamiri'West as an example of his work: '■ Being anxious for the favorable opinion' of the master, he spent a fort 'night'Tipon the drawing, and thought h'e had' made it perfect. ' "When Mr. West saw the drawing, 'lie examined it critically, commended it'In this and that particular, then handed it back, saying:— 1 "Very" well,'sir, vfery well; go on and finish it." . "But it 1b flnished," said the young artist: : ^."Oh, no!" said Mr. West. "Look here, 'and here, and here," and he put his" flnger'-'upori various unfinished places. . Mr. Morse saw the- defects, now that they were pointed out to him, and devoted'another week to remedy In^'them. Then he carried the draw ing again to the master. Mr. West was evidently much pleased, and lav ished praises upon t...
