THE CHAIN PRAYER. An Impudent Covering Letter. Citizens Should Ignore It [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912

THE CHAIN PRAYER. An Impudent Covering - Letter. Citizens Should Ignore It The chain prayer humbug has again been set in motion in Adelaide. During the week several jTigfann-gg of citizens having received these threats have been broneht under the notice of The Mail, and it is timely to advise the superstitious who have been frightened by the muttonheads responsible for these effusions to take no notice, of them whatever. Unfortosately the religious mind is so easily swayed that hypocritical cant finds it an easy vic tim, and it is only stating truth to eay that for the scores merely annoyed by these epistles hundreds have been posi tively frightened by them in -view of the direct threat of dire consequences if the stipulated directions are not followed. The prayer itself is a pretty little affair. It is the following literature which accom panies it that causes the mischief:— This prayer was sent to me. I send it to you. It is copied from an ancient prayer. Copy it and eee what hap ...

DOWN TOWN TALK. THE 'MAIL'S' FIVE MINUTE CHATS. Topics of the Day. TWELVE YEARS OF VAUDEVILLE IN ADELAIDE. It may seem easy to run a public en tertainment, bnt those who know Mr. Martin Marcus know that long and unre mitting attention is required. Mr. Marcus was caught in the midst of a pile of work on Friday. 'How long since the Tivoli opened: — "June 20, 1900, and nobody who was there will ever forget that holiday night. In those days people were allowed to stand, sit, or hang on anywhere, and that night they were literally hanging on by their eyebrows. We were allowed then to put chairs down the aisles, and every holiday and Saturday night these were all crowd ed. Now, in these days of inspectors ga lore, not a single soul is allowed to stand in any part of the theatre.' 'Has there been any improvement in the amusement business in recent years.' **Yes; indeed there has. The whole aspect of it has changed.

"WHAT LONDON WEARING." [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912

'WHAT LQNOON 1$ WEARING.'' Dear 'Irene.'— It is rather hard to be coherently explicit on the subject. The weather is pUying bo many vagaries, that my Lady Fashion is rather coy about an nouncing her decrees. Imagine this, I was in Bond street la$£ week* and saw one of her smartest spcijd leaders, garbed in the most exquisite pastel blue Shan tung coat and skirt, while on the oppo site of the street was a vision («aye the mark) anayed in a Bcariet ofetfe coal and skirt, her- shoulders covered with a. heavy black fox stole, and, the poor;- dear was straggling into a pillow muff of black fox, with a large black beaver hat to crown alL And she was some one who ought to have knosm bettep-rronly the. weather was her excuse.

THE MIRROR OF. FASHION. The Debutantes' Toilettes. Modes for the Athletic fiW. The Bowler Rat. By ' Irene.^ The -debutante of this season has every reason to thank the designers of the new modes for restoring the natural lines of the fisrure to fashion. It is always gra tifying to be in the foremost ranks when a change of style is being made, and the girl who has TnaHp her debut would be ill pleased were die expected to follow merely rather than to lead. No- one who has made a study of frocks and furbelows will dispute the fact that the- changes that have. 'been wrought are almost amazing. From the batbrim that sweeps upwards to show the hair, to the restoration of the frocks' width lost last year, all is altered. PIQUANTE SIMPLICrry.

TIMELY HINTS TO THE WOULD-BE POULTRY KEEPER (Continued). SINGLE MATING. ITS VALUE TO THE BREEDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912

TIMELY HINTS. TO THE WOUED-iJE POULTRY KEEPER (Continued). SINGLE MATING. ITSsVALUE TO thk BREEDER. My experience in breeding- poultry has convinced me that no real progress can be made by penning a cock and four or more hens to breed from; unless each .individual hen's eggs are kept and botched, separ ately, and the chicks toe-marked. By doing this you are laying the founda tion of your strain, on which, you can start to build. You know positively the sire and dam of each chick, and by watching them closely as they grow to maturity you can estimate their hardiness and vigour, and note any faults as they appear. Any chicks so bred are of greater -value than those bred any other way, because you know each one's pedigree, an-? should the progeny of any particular hen be of special quality you are in possession of all the facts, of their breeding. THE NECESSITY FOR IT. The following are four illustrations of what might occur in single mating. Of course, many things happen, but this wil...

BACK TO THE LAND. FALLOWING NEW LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912

BACK TO THE LAND. ;(Written Exclusively for 'The Mail.'} FALLOWING NEW LAND. Although this is not a usual practice in the scrub country, yet it is one that merka consideration from the fact that vprv excellent results have been EOt by putting in new land in this way. To many a scrub farmer this practice would appear to be absolutely unnecessary, as the opinion is pretty generally held that little benefit is derived from this method of dealing with virgin soil. We retognise that in the majority of cases it is neces sary to put in a small area the first year without fallowing, in order to provide stock feed and seed for the next season; still we recommend for the serious consi deration of the scrub farmer the practice of fallowing as much as possible of virgin maHee land. In ploughing new land for fallow it is well not to turn the soil too deeply, so as not to losf the benefit of the ashes or to turn up too many runner roots, as these latter, being green and supple just after mullenis...
