Gone Again. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 4 April 1914

Gone Again. At a certain public school it was the custom for the teachers to write on the blackboard any nlustruction they desired the carotaker to receolve, One evening, while cleaning a room, the caretaker saw written: "Find the greatest common denomi nator," "IHlullo!" she exclaimed, "Is that darned thing lost again," The April number of "The Story. teller" Magazine is just in, The read er of this fine monthly gets splendid reading. The authors' names are a guarantee of great excellence, Jus tus Miles Forman, Mrs, Baillie Rey. 'nolds, Warwick Deeooping, 1, A, , Wy lie, Captain Shaw,J. 0, Curwood write in this number., Those authors could not write poorly if they tried, and it seems as though they are at their best in this number, Besides the above writers H, d Veore Stae-c poole, author of "The Blue Lagoon," writes a long complete novel entitled "The Presentation." With all thease attractions, it is no wonder that the '"Storytellor" is so great a favorite with magizine readors,

SATURDAY, APRIL 4, 1914, THE PRIMARY INDUSTRIES. Tan statisetics relating to Ausntralian trade just issueed exemplify in a re* markable manner the important part played by the primary industries in the prosperity of the OmmonwealIb, Broadly opeaking they show that while the importo into Australia during the last eight monuth have remained stationary the exports have shown a gratifyingincreaso as compared with the figures for the corresponding period of the previous two years.

The reason for tbis stagnation in tbhe import business was undoubtedly the severe restrictions imposed upon Ads. tralian borrowers by thoseon responsible for the banking businese of the con* tinent, There had grown a tendency to be somewhat reckcleoss in this matter, Many persons found it compa...

BACTERIA IN WATER FOR WASHING BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 4 April 1914

BACTERIA IN WATER FOR WA8HING BUTTER. One of the greatest soalrcea of con* tamination in factory butter comes from impure wash butter. The cream may be plr'pared with the ulmost care, but if the butter is washed with water that contains objcctionable bacteria, trouble is almost suIre to follow. It often happens that butter scores very high when filrnt made, but deteri orates very fast when pilaced in stor age. In ninmany eases the trouble may be traced directly to wash water from snurface wells that receive drainago from yards andt other objectionable places Sonaiotiues had water is tii. tered. So long as the filter is clean it may do good work, but few filtoers are cared for as they should be, When there is any suspicion that the wash water is not right, it is better to boil it, even if it has to cool afterwards before using. There is a grant differencelin hut, ter nmakers in regard to using water to wash the butter, Some uose very little, ani noma use a good deal, but very few but...

STOCK OR EGGS—WHICH? [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 4 April 1914

8TOCK OR EGOS-WHIOM? At this season of the year a great many persons are planning to start in the poultry business, and the question, "Shall I buy eggs or atook?" becomes one of burning interest at this time, Iy experience, extending over a period of twenty-flve years, convinces me that buying atock is by far the better way, There is no much dissatisfaction about the egg trade that comie promi* nent breeders have boon thinking to quit the selling of jittiinig entirely. When one buys eggs on neover can be certain how the towlii that produced them were mated, yarded or fed, But when one buys a loen or trio of fowls he can see what hie hi putciiasing, and by proper care and food he will be able to ensure fertile eggs and a good hatch of strong chicki, In view of the above facts, one should be very careful in the seleetkr of his stock, and get the best that b can for his money and not the mor,1 If you can't pay £10 for a full pen, or from £3 3s, to '£5 5, for a trio, then give £2 2s, fo...
