HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Heat plates before putting hot cakes or pies on them when first taken out of the oven. If a hot cake is put on a cold plate the under part will get sodden and heavy. If you want your grate to look very bright, rub it over with just a little turpentine, after blackleading and shining. Then polish with a soft duster. It will look well for days. Place a week's tea-leaves in a pail and pour over them a quart of boil ing water. Leave for one hour, then strain and bottle. This liquor is. ex cellent for cleaning varnished wood and linol«um, and when used for cleaning windows or mirrors makes them shine like crystal. Teacups with broken handles are very useful for poaching eggs. But ter the inside, break the egg into the cup, and stand the cup in the frying 'pan half filled with water. It keeps the egg ft. good shape when poached, easy to slip on to toast, and is cleaner than poaching in a frying pan. A most excellent way to use cashes is to mix them with about an equal qua...
WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916
WISE AND OTHERWISE. I T 1 ■ — j During a Bible lesson a teacher trying to explain the parable of th» tares. "Can anyone tell me any person who is liko the evil one who Bowed the tares ?" A hand instantly Bhot up from th« foot of the class. "Well, David, what person do you say ?" "Please, ma'am, my mother." "Why ?" asked the teacher, in as tonishment. "Because," answered he, eyeing his patched trousers, "she sbwb tears." A bishop recently addressed a large I assemblage of Sunday-school children, and wound up by asking, in a very paternal way, "And now, is thera any little boy. or any little girl, who would like to ask me a question ?" A thin, shrill voice at the hack of the room called out, "Please, sir, why did the angels walk up and down Jacob's ladder when they had wings ?" "Oh, ah, yes—I see," said the bis hop. "And now, .is there any little girl or boy who would like to answer this question ?" The callous bailiffs had cleared out every stick, and stone, and nothing remained but ...
Cornet Players Live Long. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916
Cornet Players Live Long. Investigations made by a doctor leads him to conclude that musicians who play wind instruments are ex ceptionally long lived. Cornet players are credited by him with an average life of 69.1 years. Clarionet players are next, with 64.4 i years ; the average oboe and the I bassoon live to be about 63 years | old. j The lowest duration of life by these i players of wind instruments arc men J who handle the flute. Beqause of the : formation of their instruments, they [ do not have opportunity for full | exercise of their lungs. j j Therefore the flute player according i to this authority, reaches an average age of 61.2 years. It is interesting to observe the number of seemingly aged men who are members of orchestras. The the t atre orchestra that does not number one or two men who have left their! hair far behind with the years, or are so grey that they appear well upon the century mark, is an excep- j tion. j The proof is that a steady and I moderate daily use...
SUMMER CARE OF FOALS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 November 1916
SUMMER CARE OF FOALS * • _ * T ' By H. B. McCartney. The first summer is the time when growth can be put on th'e colt cheap est and most profitably. Plenty q( feed is necessary (or beBt growth ana development. Of all feeds the mother's milk is of greatest importance. It 13 essential that the dam be cared [^r in such a way as to Cause her to yield the biggest supply of milk p0J. sible. Mares suckling foals should i,e fed liberally of clean, healthful an.l appetizing foods. It is permissible and usually advisable that the mare be worked. She should, however, be in the hands of the most thoughtful careful- driver, and should be hand'.ej with good judgment. After the age of about one nonth the foal tieeds food in addition to what it can secure from its mother. Clean, bright oats make probably the best feed that is available on the farm. A mixture of oats, bran and oil meal in the proportion of 6-3-1 i8 splendid^ if one will go to the trouble of preparing or mixing a feed. Or dinarily a-...
HINTS ON HORSE SHOEING. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 November 1916
HINTS ON HORSE SHOEING. — . By W. W. Hunter, in "National Stockman and Farmer." There ie^one part of the horse'8 body which domestic usage has sub jected to more abrupt, radical and unnatural treatment than any other part of his makeup. I mean the hoof which is to my mind one of the most perfect combinations of extremely deli cate parts, protecting other delicate and essential parts, to be found in nature. As I am not a professional I will not attempt to describe this most perfect spring system in the world that is enclosed within the wall of every horse's foot. In nature's economy the horse's feet rest on mother earth and are washed by the dewy grass and run ning streams. Under man's manage ment he stands on solid plank or concrete with never a drop of mois ture on his feet. On his native heath his travel is over grassy sward and yielding earth, and instinct compels him to use his feet just enough to keep them in proper shape. Man drives him over hard rough roads, and very soon the...
POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 November 1916
I I POULTRY. -t There used to be a theory, and with some it is still believe!, that the presence of a small pigeon sized • egg means that that particular hen has laid her.litter, and will not be gin for some time. That theory has been exploded by the aid of the trap nest. The records kept by the writer show that one day Brahma hen Ko 27 laid a small pigeon sized egg, the next day she laid another small egs. but somewhat larger than the one of the day before. Two days later s!ie laid, a regular sized egg, and contin ued doing so for about a fortnight when she laid a double yolked ep?. which proved that both the pigeon Bized and double yolked eggs are t' e product of hens that are too fat. This hen in question was very fat. Ducks and geese require deep drink ing vessels, especially if reared I kept on land. Unless the vessel s;' deep enough so the fowl can get its entire head under water and this wash its eyes, dust and dirt ffill s t' tie in the eyes making them sore ard often result...

PART TWO. CHAPTER IV.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 November 1916
. "' PART TWO; CHAPTER IV —(Continued.) The two men disappeared down tlie companion. It was fully an hour, be-." fore they reappeared, a time which I spent in completing my examination of the brig. As I went over the ves sel, in whose rigging _a number of . men? were busily engaged in. bending the sails,- an undefined presentiment of evil, at -first unrecognised^ and 1 hen decided; forced itself upon me;' I smiled at my folly, and by a strong effort shook it oft. The will triumph ed over the more reliable; though niorc obscure instinct. There was certainly nothing uncanny about the snug- little brig to arouse one's dread. I afterwards learned that tlio cause of this peculiar admonition of j impending evil-arouse from the un conscious impression Morgan had made. On their return to the deck, | Morgan sprang to the quay and walked away without a word. With i a strong effort, Harding forced a I smile as lie said, in cheery tones : "Well; Carl, I've found a first mate." ''Who is he ?" "T...

FEED FOALS WELL. J. Keble. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 November 1916
FEED FOALS WELL. T — J. ICeblc. - My own personal experience' teaches trie that unless draft-fed foals are well fed during their first year the right degree of growth can never be obtained from them. Of later years I-have .been studying as closely as -possible;the operations of others, as '•well ias those not directed by my self, ; and the more. T-see and the longer I- live the more finnly am I convinced >thatHthe~first is the most ■ important: year in a horse's lifetime, /so. - far-.as; his : • ultimate development is concerned. :Tlu;v simply must have about all. the grain they will eat if ■the best possible, results 'are sought. At the Kxperiment -Station the trials made with grade, foals resulted,when they were two years old; in making a profit of about £20 on the grain fed, and to my notion if a little more had been allowed them they might have made a still greater re turn. At first, that is as soon as a foal will eat, there is nothing so good for him as oatmeal, or bruised o...
