he jjjoort j^tandatid. AND QUAMBATOOK IERALD Thursday, July 23. The Weather. The tension in agricultural circles, caused by the prolonged spell of dry weather, is acute. Frosty nights, in addition, are not conducive to growth, and the position at present is, unfortuna tely,. only too serious. Hand feeding has for some weeks had, perforce, to be resorted to, but there is still time for a beneficial alteration in the season's pros pects. '' Hope deferred undoubt edly maketh the heart sick," and that "depression" discovered by our Federal meteorologist is a long time in making its . appear ance. If the long dry spell has had nothing else to recommend it, it has demonstrated to owners of stock that the conservation of fodder should be gone in for to a greater extent than is the case at present by progressive settlers. There are many who thought they had laid in a sufficient store, but they are now faced with the position of purchasing feed or transferring their stock. Demand for Sheep. ...

ALONE I DIP IT. In Stiviehul, near Coventry, stands a building uniquo among places of wor ship. John Green, a stonemason, in 1810 laid the first stone of tho edilico, and soven years later ho completed it. In all that time ho derived assistance from none, doing all the work with his own hands, l.mtil tho church was ready for its interior fittings. This is tho :v stone 6tractur© in England--and probably in the world—of which evory stone was laid by one man.

WHEN YOU FEEL A COLD COMING ON. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 30 July 1914

WHEN YOU FEEL A COLD COMING ON. A simple but very effective remedy' for "raw'' throat, and clibst, experrf onoed especially by singers aud. speuk era,: is to drink not mint, then tor a minute or two bathe, ihb cuest with milit as hot as can oe oorue". •••..This •serves both as a stimulant and nutri tive. i<'or inflamed "raw throat," unac companied by coughing, oina around the throat a thin strip of weli-peppered salt pork. After twelve flours the pork is removed and for a few hours longer a plain, fresh flannel band is substituted. Keep out of draughts. Instead of water for a cold pack, some use alcohol, full s.rength; not only is it more elfoetive, but, besides, one is not so liablo to (take cold the next moruing alter removing the pack. A Honolulu temedy for sore throat is fresh pineapple, as much as ono can digest. Hie effect is marvellous.

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Busticus.") Mr. Elwood Mead has been takiqg a largo section of the irrigation sottlers severely to' task for gambling with the seasons. The gamble has not come off this year, ahd some of them are conse quently in a bad way. But thero arc others. These have reserves of fodder and are benefiting from their neigh bors' sorry plight. With the melancholy fact that thero is reason for Mr. Stead dropping his customary urbanity and waxing warm in denunciation of the hit-or-miss methods, it is pleasing to read accounts of some of the successes in the Nyah Settlement which have been published recently. It must also bo borno in mind that the season there has not boon kind. The excellent position the intelligent workers of the land thoro are now in is therefore all the more creditable. The writer describing Mr. .lames Thwaites's vineyard, says it contains fi'O acres, but at this time of year the gaunt trunks aro devoid of leaves. Be tween the rows rape, tares, and peas ar...

CHILD HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 30 July 1914

CHiLD HUMOR. i lie vast area which child-humor h.., lately occupied iu tho world, of literature renders ono doubtful whether - many of .lie imiumrable jokes foisted upon the "kiddies" are not, after all, the work of inventive children or larger growth than those to whom they are attributed. At' lirst sight it may seem singular ilmt the majority of these funny stories are connected with scriptural history, but taking it for granted that they are tho pro ducts of adult minds, it proves that the "old boys and girls" have been sharp enough to recognise that biblical mat ters are prominent in the curricula in many schools. Hence it is not sur prising to iiud in Children's Answers ml.cud by John Henry Burn," many pleasantries of this character—"Why was Hoses hidden in "the bulrushes by lii.s motherf' Because she didn't want him to lie vaccinated."
