THE DAIRY DEHORNING THE DAIRY CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914
THE DAIRY + . DEHORNING THE' DAIRY CATTLE. Owners of farm cattle have a mis taken idea of beauty when they think a cow or a bull is moro attractive : with the horns on. For' safety's sake, if for no other reason, the cattle should be dehorned, both to keep them from injuring each othor and from doing bodily, harm to persons on the farm. Horns have no possible use to any domestic animal and should bo romovod at an early age. When cattle - roamed wild, horns were Nature's provision for defence and guard against enemies. In the struggle for existence in the early days, when cattle in a wild state of nature had to hold their own with other beasts of the fields, horns were a -valuable asset. Now when thsy aro bred for domestic purposes and have nothing from which to defend them selves, tho horns have absolutely no use, and a cow should be considered moro valuable without them. Animals on which the horns aro left, possess more or less of. their former fighting instinct. They often do much...
DRAINAGE FOR THE YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914
DRAINAGE FOR THE YARD. In locating a cowshed care should be taken to have a gentle slope Irora the shed In at least one direction af fording .igood natural drainage to both shed and yard. If tho shed is al ready built and poorly located, grad ing and draining will do much to remedy the evil. In most cases it would take but a small amount of labour with a scraper when the ground is in suitable condition to handle to give the surface of the yard a slope from the shed sufficient to carry oil the surplus water. Even if dirt has to be hauled in from out | side the yard to accomplish this, it will not be expensive. Tile drainage ' aloqe will not be sufficient as the ' tramping of the cattle soon covers the surface, preventing the water from passing down the tile. Thirty years ago the cream separa tor did not exist, and now more than two million are in use throughout the world. The average girl will find hercom : plexion improved by the following I weekly treatment. The last thing, at ! ni...
HUMAN NATURE. ECCENTRICITIES OF THE GREAT. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914
HUMAN NATURE. .ECCENTRICITIES OF THE GREAT. In an interesting ^article in tho "New York Tribune," entitled "Ec centricities of the Great," Mr. Ed win Tarrisso presents a list of notable peoplo who have shown pe culiarities of one sort or another. . Kant, the Gorman metaphysician, he says, stands at the head of the class of truly great eccentricities. One of Kant's hobbies in the art of taking ct£re of himself was to avoid garters. He permitted no ligature to be placed on any part of his body, fearing to hinder in the slight , est degree tho circulation of tho blood. - He found it necessary at tho same time to keep up his stockings. Ac cordingly, he had loops attached to them, and outride each hip ho wore a- contrivance that may he called a box. windlass. These affairs some what resembled an angler's reel with a spring, which secured the lino at any given point. . A VIOLINIST'S REVENGE. Paganini had his share of eccen tricity. He feared no one, and when he was -disposed. to fly off i...
MATURING CHEESE BY ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914
MATURING CHEESE BY ELECTRI CITY. An industrial electrician of Rotter dam is reported to have discovered a method of giving age to cheese by means of electricity. After a long series of experiments, he found that he could take an absolutely fresh cheese and give it all the consis tency, taste, and appearance of a fine cheeBe that had been stored awaj and carefully aged- for two years. He takes a fresh cheese and sub jects it to an alternating current. At the end of twenty-four hours of con stant alternating electrical currents , through this cheese it possesses all the properties of a fine two-year-old cheese, This .has naturally aroused great' interest in Holland, where cheese making is one of the big industries. It is said the electrician claims he can do many other things with cheese by means of electricity., including an apparatus that will enable the manu facturer to so gratuate and direct electrical action of this nature as to I give cheese any taste desired, and any consistenc...

WIVES WON BY PICTURES. Tho circumstances loading up to (ho wedding between a wealthy American and a pretty 'girl whoso faco ho first saw and admired on a canvas in tho Academy, havo boon frequently -paralleled in tho past. Perhaps tho most romantic casein point was that which Was associa ted tho name of tho lato Mr. Wil liam Henry Hunt. One day . this talented artist discovered a rustic village beauty, and proceeded to uti lise her face as a model for one of his gloriously brilliant water colour picture-portraits. After it was finished he sold it, and at the purchaser's earnest request, divulged the identity c«T the model. Tho girl was sought out by tho buyer, who found her as intelligent as she was beautiful; ITe had her educated, and in due course led her to the altar, the marriage turning out a most happy one. Mr. G. A. Story's ' well-known picture "Mistress Dorothy" was also responsible for a similar ro mance.
THE ART OF MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914
THE ART OF MILKING. The art of milking is considered as being on a level with pumping water, or any other simple work, and yet there are many, points needed to stamp a man as Q good milker. Too many children are allowed to attend to this important work and many chronic troubles of cheese and the cbeesc factory originate right here. A good experienced milker can soon I tell if there is something wrong with j I the udder and milk, and will not" al low such, milk to be delivered to th« , factory, but what can you exprct of a child ?

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. HIS HUNDREDTH HUNDRED. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914
I FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. HIS. HTOTDREDTn HUNDRED. Tom Hayward succeeded in scor ing his hundredth century in flrst elass crickot, and thereby robbod Dr. W. O. Grace oX the distinction of being tho only cricketer ahle to claim this honour. J)r. W. G, Oraco began playing first-class cricket in 1605, but it was not until 1805 that ho made his hundredth hundred. Hayward accomplished tho feat in his twenty first season. But then, of course, being a younger man, ho had many more opportunities owing to tho fact that the flrst-class fixture list has been greatly extendod during recont years. : Hayward's greatest season undoubt edly was 1900, though probably tho finest innings ho over played rfas tho 130 ho made against Australia at Manchester, in 1890.
CHAPTER XXI. POOR PAT. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914
CHAPTEn XXI. POOR PAT. It was the final day of the trial of John Carvill ; the evidence had told terribly against him. His counsel had fought hard for a favourable vordict, but when the jury, left the court even the most sanguine feared the verdict would go against him. As for Jack, the confinement and tho suspense ol tho last two days had told upon him, hut in spite ol that he looked a noble fellow as he entered the dock when the jury had died into their places. In another moment the foreman had spoken. The verdict was guilty, with a recommendation to mercy, as the prisoner had received great pro vocation. "I will sec that your recommenda tion is forwarded to the Home Sec* retary, but I do not see how he can act upon it. The murder was not done in the heat of passion, but was deliberately planned, and the de ceased was lured to his doom, under the pretext that he was required pro fessionally," said the judge, who then proceeded to pass sentence. A minute or two later Jack- disap pe...
THE CRICKET-BAT'S TASK. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914
1 THE CRICKET-BAT'S TASK. : Twolve months at least should be allowed for the "seasoning" ot a high-grade crickct-bat-that is, from the time it is roughly shaped. In the final stage of its manufac ture the surface of the blade is subjected to great pressure by means of special machinery. Why is all this necessary ? Because a bat has to withstand tremen dous blows. * An interesting experiment once car ried out at Woolwich Arsenal i showed that C. T. B. Turner, tho ; great Australian bowler, could bowl i a ball at tho pace of eighty-one ! feet a second, and there have been plenty of bowlers faster than "The Demon. However, a tolerably simple ma thematical calculation shows that a cricket-ball travelling at this rate and striking a stationary bat will exert a pressure equal to about 871b. at the point of impact. But, of course, a bat is not al ways stationary, and when it is swung against the ball, tho pres sure on the bat is enormously in creased. Here accurato calculations is diffi cu...
OH, FOR LIFEBOATS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914
OH, FOR LIFEBOATS. Ten lifeboat crews arc experi menting with a small oil bag to ascertain tho cffect upon rough, shallow water. The minutely perfo rated bag, containing a tin' of thick oil-which is smashed by the coxswain-and a wad of oakum, is towed from the weather side of the boat, and is designed to moderate breaking, following seas. These latter are always a menace to the safety of a lifeboat, and hitherto the view has been generally held that oil, although an effective agent in deep water, was of no avail against then). The quantity of oil varies from a gallon to half a gallon, according to the size d the boat. Recently the device was tested at Worthing in exceedingly rough wea ther, and it has been reported to tho National Lifeboat Institution, which issued the bags, 1hat the tests are regarded ns satisfactory.

BELL-RINGING RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 4 September 1914
BELL-RINGING RECORD. A bell-ringing record which has stood for 130 years was beaten the. other day at Ashton-under-Lync* Parish Church by a team of cam panologists under the conductorship of Mr. Sajpuel Wood. ' The Ashtou attempt to beat the treble bob royal record on ten bells of 12,000 changes which was accomplished at Shoroditch in 1784. Beginning their task at seven o'clock in the morning the ringers succeeded in their feat, which they carried out in nine hours thirty-four minutes. The peal reached nearly 14,000 chairgcs. The sagacity of a horse belonging to a Captain Watson, of Ardow, furnishes the "Scotsman" with a good story. The horse had been graz ing in a field for some time, and had lost a shoe. Seemingly ho felt the Joss of his usual metal support, and, managing .to get out of the field, he travelled a con siderable distance to Dcrvaig, on the north-west of Mull. The road he took passes the village smithy, and the blacksmith was astonished to see the horse standing in fr...
ART'S BRUTALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914
ART'S BRUTALITY.. "I know Amos comes in for 'a lot of praise because he hunts with a camera, instead of a gun,'' Forbes began in a slightly acrid tone. "It never seems to strike people that thero may bo more than one kind of brutality." ! "What's the matter with Ames ?" domanded one of- his clubmates. The Mennings of some of the New "Air Terms Illus trated (A) A " Volplane." (B) A " Nose Dive." (C) A " Pancake." (D) A " Slide Slip." "Out in Canada last autumn/' Forbes resumed, "I went oil by my self one day, when Ames was fid dling over his kodak, and X stum bled full on a black bear. Be euuse X was the only thing in sight, very likely, f became the immediate object of her attentions. I had only a slight lead, but I was go ing pretty well when Ames poked through the brush and took in the situation. " 'Hold on there, old chnp !' he yelled. ' You're too far ahead. I can't get you both in.' "
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. When threading a needle take a white envelope, stick the needle through, and draw it down until the eye is visible, and you will' thread the needle like magic. The white surface of the pnper ' sets the' eye into relief, as If; it were magni fied. V If kerosene and water be put into a sprinkling pot, and all outhouses dustpans, etc., places where flies breed and increase in thousands, bo sprinkled carefully with the mixture occasionally during the summer months, the eggs will bo destroyed, and the household be spared an in tolerable nuisance and a real dan ger. A good way to use up coal dust is to save all paper bags, .fill,then! with the dust, and when the fire re quires mending place a bag of the dust on it, with a few pieces of coal on top. This plan is much cleaner than putting on the dust in shovelfuls, as it cakes, and so does not tumble through the bars of the grate on to the hearth. To improve the flavour of currants and sultanas which arc to bo used for cake...
