Workhouse Children. Jn January,1013, the number of children in receipt of relief from the State in England and Wales was close on a quarter of a mil lion, of whom some 70,000 were in workhouses or institutions. A little group of Bhodes scho lars, themselves fresh from the great baro spacos of the Empire, formed, in 1909, tho design of transplanting some of these chil dren of the State, and for the last twelve months their plan lias been working under conditions most favourable to success at rinjarra, in Western Australia, says the "Graphic." The head of tho Farm-School, hud founder of tho Society, is Mr. Kingsley Fairbridge, a Hhodesian by birth, and a poet by nature, and the boys under his charge at present number thirty-three.

Porter's Coats as Afghan Uniforms. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 July 1914
Porter's Coats as Afghan Uniforms. Tho Amir of Afghanistan is ex ceedingly anxious to Westernise his country, but it is rumoured that some of his subjects are not | taking kindly to the reforms. Tho latest step which the Amir lias taken is to insist on tlie ladies ol his Court wearing European clothes. Recently dozens of elaborately-de signed costumes were ordered from Paris. Early this year, says a Bombay correspondent, a representative of a Bombay tailor visited Kabul at the invitation of the Amir, and high-class clothes to the value of £0,000 were sold to the ladies and gentlemen of tho Court. The ladies were not permitted to be seen per sonally or to be measured for their garments, but their measurements were sent out to the tailor. Tho ladies selected their dresses from pictures of the latest Parisian fashions, and after the costumes had been supplied his Majesty gave a garden-party at which the dresses were displayed. Many amusing features about this craze for European dress a...

How Kipling was Interviewed in America. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 July 1914
How Kipling was Inter viewed in America. In Chicago, considerably more than twenty years ago, I obtained a chrnico interview from Rudyard Kipling. At that time Kipling, who was just beginning to achieve fame through his "Plain Tales from the Hills" and " Soldiers Three," had little use for this country. For one thing, he had tried to make a living with his pen in San Francisco, and had failed. Kipling was in a decidedly crab bed humour when ho reached Chi cago on this occasion, and not with out reason. lie was on his way from Australia to England. On, shipboard he had made up his mind that he would do no talking for newspapers when ho reached this country. He would not see the San I^rancisco reporters who be sieged him. But some of them wrote "interviews" with him any how. In the main they were high ly ridiculous, imaginary interviews, and they put ICipling in a very foolish light. The same thing hap pened in Seattle, Cheyenne, Denver, Omaha, and other cities wlieie he stopped on hi...

WHY LEAFY POTATO PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 July 1914
V.l-IV LEAFV POTATO PLANTS. The most nutr'Uive part o' th» po tato, the part that gives to the po tato its excellent flavour, is the part that coitnins the greatest number of starch cells. If anyone will c'jt a Po tato through the middle he will no tice that the potato substance is not homogeneous. Around the outside of the potato, just beneath the skin, i a layer, separated from the inner layer by a vascular semi-Obrous par tition that is visible on close exami nation. This outer layer is called the cortic'el, and contains most of the starch o! the potato. The best pota toes have this corticel layer thick instead o! thin-that Is, have more starch than the others. , The principal chemical element of starch is carbon. The potato plant gets all of its carbon from the air through the leaves, ncne of it from the soil. The leaves have the power to dissociate the carbon from the carbon- dioxide in the air, and store much of this carbon in the tuber. , The larger the leaf capacity and vi g...

THE DAIRY A GENUINE GET-RIOH-QUICK PROPOSITION. Superintendent Malcolm H. Gard ner, of tha Holstein-Kriesian Advan ced Registry of America, has a fac ulty of saying things in a striking and unique way.

When drained dry add salt to taste, and rub the curds well to make them appear mealy. Stand in a warm place near a stove for a few days till they get gluey. Then put into a saucepan, and fry with fresh butter till all is well melted. Run into a basin, and leave to get cool. It is then ready for use.

USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 July 1914
USEFUL HINTS. Burns and Scalds.-For a slight burn or scald apply equal parts of olive oil and lime water, and wrap the part at once in a sheet of cot ton wool, Cxing it lightly with a bandage. At first the pain seems in creased, but this soon subsides. The wool may be left on for three or four days. If lime v.ater is not available olive oil may be used alone, and flour or starch dusted over it. Aching Limbs.-Hot salt water is a sovereign remedy for aching limbs caused by standing too much on the feet, or too prolonged walking, also for tired arms, han4s and limbs after continued exertion or strain. The water should be as hot as can well be borne without discomfort, and have plenty of salt in it : but too strong salt will make the flesh itch and burn. For a sprained ankle, bathe in hot salt water for half an hour, renewing the heat as it cools, wrap in flannel, and repeat the hot bath in three or four hours until re lieved. To Clean Brass and Retain the Polish.-Put some finely powder...

THE FARM. 'MOIST FACTS for DRY FARMERS. Mr. Geo. L. Sutton, Agricultural I Commissioner for the Wheat B-lt, 'western Australia, has issued the ! following: Moisture can be stored in the toil. I To store moisture the soil must lie j able to absorb the nun that falls. Loose Boil will absorb 40 per cent. ? of its weight in water. Compact soil ' will absorb only 20 per ccnt. I Cultivation or tillare loosens the soil. ? Cultivation or tillage some time previous to tha sowinjr season is known as fallowing. j FALLOWING STORES MOISTURE. I The longer the period between the j initial operation of fallowing and that of planting:, the greater will be the quantity of moisture stored. In dry districts fallowing should ^commence early. i The moisture stored by fallowing , is war.ted by weeds. i Weeds can be destroyed by surface .cultivation. | The moisture stored is easily lost by evaporation. i Much of this can be prevented by j mulching^ or covering the moist soil with straw, litter, or lo?32 dr...
