HONEYCOMB TOFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

HONEYCOMB TOFFEE. Talk 4 tablespoons each honey or treacle, sugar, and hot water, and a small piece of butter. Boil all except butter together until a little dropped in cold water hardens, then add the butter, as if it is added last the flavor is stronger than if boiled up with the other ingredients. Then stir in quick- ly 1½ or 2 teaspoons carbonate of soda, and pour immediately on to a buttered dish.

CHERRY CONSERVE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

CHERRY CONSERVE.   Conserved fruit should keep its shape and remain at the end of cook- ing as nearly whole as possible. Nearly all fruit may be treated in the same way :-i Stone the cherries and put into a large basin, allowing 1 cup sugar to 1 cup cherries; cover the cherries with sugar, and allow to stand all night. Next morning strain the liquid and boil gently for 20 minutes ; skim thor- oughly, add the cherries, and boil gently for 1 hour, or until the syrup jellies. Allow to cool before bottling, and when cold cover down airtight.

VIRTUES OF TOBACCO. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

VIRTUES OF TOBACCO. The "fragrant weed" is undoubtedly much more popular since the outbreak of the present epidemic (writes a New Zealander). Whether or not tobacco is a preventive from infection may be open to doubt, but faith is a great factor in all physic, therefore the man who complacently sucks his pipe and feels he is immune from infection is well on the way to be saved. One thing is certain, smoking is permitted now in many offices where formerly it was barred, and the ladies seem to have a predilection for the end of the tramcar that is used by smokers. One of the results of the war has been to greatly increase the number of smok- ers. It seems almost incredible now to recall that some years ago a Metho- dist minister in Massachusetts was dis- missed from his charge because he had been guilty of the henious crime of smoking a pipe. An American paper, referring to the matter at the time, had the following sarcastic paragraph: "This new crime so far surpasses all other minist...

CURRENT TOPICS LIGHTNING SHIPBUILDING. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

CURRENT TOPICS LIGHTNING SHIPBUILDING. As showing the remmarkable work being carried out in the shipyards at Home, the following instances culled from the "Shipping World" are of con- siderable interest. One Glasgow firm has handedover three vessels in one     month. Two of these were large freighters, a meat carrier of 10,000   tons, and an ordinary cargo of 8000 tons. Riveters in this shipyard in three weeks riveted by hand the entire shell of an 8000-ton steamer building for the Clan line. She is 420ft. long,   54ft. 6in. broad, and 36ft. 6in. deep. Into this expanse of plating 100,000 rivets were driven, entirely by hand, in 18 working days - a fine record. An- other firm, whose yard is at Greenock, recently carried out the engining and boilering of an 8000-ton steamer in 23 working days. They also completed the engining and boilering of the stan- dard oil tanker War Briton in only a few days more. Oil tankers, of course, requi...

CANNY SCOT NO LONGER. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

CANNY SCOT NO LONGER. Scotland has once, more beaten Eng- land in giving. Some time ago, it will be remembered, Glasgow beat every re- cord in patriotic liberality by subscri ing fourteen millions during its "tank week." Then England had a ""Busi- ness men's week," in which every town and village in the country subscribed most lavishly, under the guise of buy- ing munitions, from battleships to ma- chine guns. Scotland followed suit with "War Weapons' Week." The sum aimed at was ten millions, and over eighteen millions was subscribed, an amount more than sufficient to break England's record of £4 per head. Many places subscribed double, or   more than double, the amounts they had promised to raise. Edinburgh's contribution was £2,393,000, Glasgow's more than £3,000,000, Aberdeen gave   £418,054, Dundee £381.204, Inverness £200,000, Kilmarnock £220,000, Leith £352,681, Kalkirk £223,071. Some of   the little towns and villages gave mag- nificentl...

"WHAT FIGHTING WE HAD!" WYNYARD SOLDIER'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

"WHAT FIGHTING WE HAD!" WYNYARD SOLDIER'S LETTER,   The Hon, J, Belton, M.H.A., has re- ceived an interesting letter from his son. Phil, in the course of which he said that while encamped near Belli- court they were only a few hundred yards off the famous canal which the Huns had held for four years. The tunnel ran through a hill some seven miles long, and came to light in a kind of ravine between two steep banks nearly 100ft deep and miles long. This canal and tunnel constituted part of the famous defence line. The Allied infantry attacked here; and in two days had the whole lot in their hands. God, what fighting they had! They went in one end of the tunnel and fought   through to the other seven miles away in total darkness. Thc tunnel, of   course (he had the pleasure of seeing it afterwards) was made of brick and cement, with a solid concrete tow-path   on each side. Fritz, as soon as he oc- cupied this at the commencement of t...

ENGLAND AND THE LAND OATS v. GOLF. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

ENGLAND AND THE LAND OATS v. GOLF. A London correspondent wrote in October: The first of the Surrey golf links to come under the reaper is the Black- down course, near Woking, where har- vesting has begun. The course, about 200 acres, was taken over by the Working War Agri- cultural Committee late last autumn, and was let to two farmers, and so successfully have they farmed it that it is yielding a splendid harvest. Work began on 45 acres of oats of fine quality, which stood 5ft. 8in, high, with good stout straw, and it is esti- mated that the average yield per acre will be about 15 sacks. In gathering the harvest assistance is being given by neighboring farmers. The policy of sharing labor and teams, if generally   adopted, would go far towards solving   the labor difficulty.

DISOBEYING AN ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

DISOBEYING AN ORDER. The first prosecution for refusing to   plough up grass land was heard at Spalding, when a farmer was summon- ed, at the instance of the Board of   Agriculture, for failing to plough np 19 acres of Sutton St. Edmonds, and was fined £50 and costs. Defendant's plea   was that the order would have been obeyed later, when prospects of get-   ting good crops would have been bet- ter.

WORLD'S COUNCIL LORD GREY'S VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

WORLD'S COUNCIL     LORD GREY'S VIEW.       Viscount Grey (formerly British     Foreign Minister), writing an introduc-   tion to an article on the Peace Confer-   ence, says that it is not necessary that   the Peace Conference should create a   League of Nations.   The conference itself will be the vital       beginning of such a league. All that     is absolutely necessary is that it shall     not commit suicide, but keep itself     alive by adjourning and leaving a per- manent organisation instead of dissolv- ing.     Two points are especially commend- ed for careful and sympathetic attent- tion. One is the possibility of apply- ing the principle of trusteeship to those vast tracts, esp...

THE BRITISH AT MONS [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

THE BRITISH AT MONS "Civis" writes in the London   "Times": The armistice hour, when it struck, found the British at Mons. At Mons!   think of the miraceo of it. The wheel had come full circle ; we end where we began. A whole Iliad of vicissi- tudes of heroic endeavor, of sorrow, and of joy lies between the Mons of our beginning, and the Mons of our triumphant close. The "Old Con- temptibles," where are they? No   longer in the fighting front, alas; but shrined for ever in the nation's rev- verence and love. This is the place to say, and within the last few days Mr. Lloyd George has said it, that Bri- tain has done her bit, and a bit more than her bit. It was our Eastern of- fensives at Gallipoli, in Mesopotamia, and Palestine - that brought Turkey down. Austria, the next prop to fall, even an American critic can see, suc- cumbed to the British blockade. In the West, we began with the begin- ning, and ended only with the end. To America we owe ...

NORTHERN CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

NORTHERN CROPS. The crops in the Northern districts   cannot be called good. In most in- stances between Deloraine and Laun- ceston they are on the light side - in some instances almost absolute failures and it does not seem to make much difference whether they were put in late or early. There are some very fair returns in the good dry land about Bishopsbourne and Oaks, but to- wards Deloraine they are light. The barley crops want rain badly, and they will on the whole be very short. One of the troubles in many of the dis- tricts is over-cropping. It is surprising that it pays the farmer to crop year after year for indifferent returns. On the State farm there is one paddock which has given a good return of hay. It would be well if most of the farmers in that locality were to adopt Mr. Bonney's advice and go in for dairying and pasture more. Many of the fields should be sown down and given a five years' spell, and by that time, if the owners undertook a drainage system, ...

3000 MILES TO ENLIST. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

3000 MILES TO ENLIST. In the first year of the war one   heard from time to time of long jour- neys made by men anxious to volun- teer for service. One man in New Zea- land walked from Southern Westland across to Dunedin; in Australia there was more than one case of men travel- ing to Sydney or Melbourne for many days by horse or coach and train from some far out-back station, and hun- dreds of young Englishmen took steam- er to the Old Country from the ends of the earth. In America, a month or two ago, a man who had been called up in the selective draft arrived in camp at Tacoma, Washington, after a journey of more than 3000 miles from the far north of Alaska .He had re- gistered his address as Seattle, where his mother lived, and from there re- ceived on May 22 an order to report for duty. He telegraphed for two weeks' extension, so that he might catch a boat to the nearest port, but was instructed to "take the first train or be classed as a deserter," As the nearest ...

AGAIN, CULTIVATE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

AGAIN, CULTIVATE. The Dunorlan estate, which has re- cently been acquired by the Govern- ment for closer settlement of soldiers, does not appear very favorable to-day, as most of the crops that are in evi- dence are on the light side. It also is properly a grazing proposition. When one contrasts the greater suitability of the land in the North-West for agri- culture as compared with some of the older districts in the North, surprise must be general that conditions of cul- ture are not reversed - that is that more cropping is not done here and more grazing there.
