THE HANDKERCHIEF. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
THE HANDKECHIEF. ' The handkerchief, unlike'so many other indispensable comforts., does not come from China, but from It aly. It is only 360 years ago that the handkerchief of a Venetian lady was considered a great curiosity. The handkerchief crossed the Alps and was received,. with great favour at the Court of France. Handker chiefs were then made of cambric or lawn, and bordered with Vene tian or Alencon lace. Under Henry III. of France the sachet was intro duced. The handkerchief was taken into Germany a little later, and was known as the 'fazellitin,' after its Italian name. Only persons of qua lity used it, and an edict of 1595 was published at Dresden, interdict ing the use of the handkerchief among the trading classes.
Facts and Fancies. COLLECTIONS OF VOICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
Facts and Fancies. COLLECTIONS OF VOICES. Somewhere or other it is possible to find a collection of anything you may happen to be interested in, whether it be old pipes, false teeth, or china; but.it is only recently that one has had an opportunity to 'in- spect' a collection of voices. The British Museum has an extensive collection, to which it is constantly adding, of the voices of celebrated persons, it being the idea that phon ographic records may be preserved for the benefit of future generations. But the Vienna Academy of Sciences has gone into it more elaborately, and seeks phonograms1 for the com parative study of languages and di alects. Its collections includes songs' of Gipsies, Arabs, American Indians, the idioms of Malays and strange peoples of Central Africa, and so on. Each yeac it sends out a voice-collecting expedition to little known places of the world, and thousands of records are made.
The Poultry Run. PREPARING SOFT FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
The Poultry Ron. PREPARING SOFT FOOD. '? ??' % Many fanciers feed corn when they should be feeding soft food, the reason being that corn requires no preparation. On the other hand, ' '', \ soft food not only has to be proper ^ ly mixed, but in many cases has to be cooked, or at any rate scalded. , , This is an important point to be remembered, because it is far better to give no soft food at all than to give it ill-prepared. In their ig norance beginners sometimes give their birds poultry or biscuit-meal just as it is purchased, without treatment of any kind. To do this is really dangerous, for the particles .of broken biscuit swell to three times their original size when moist. Note the result. In its dry form, the birds can take a large quantity of the meal — until, indeed, their crops are packed full of it — yet before .it is digested the food must swell enor mously, with results which can well be imagined. Poultry-meal of every kind should be thoroughly scalded before being used...
The Farmer. MARKETING AND FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
The Farmer. MARKETING AND FEEDING. The little State of Denmark has attained a degree of agricultural prosperity which has attracted the attention of the world, says a corre spondent. With an area of cultiva tion and grass land not exceeding 7,000,000 acres, a population of 2,500,000; with a soil and climate in no way especially favored by Na ture, the country has managed to y create an agricultural condition so generally successful that it has brought prosperity and comfort to its inhabitants. To what can its happy position be attributed ? It must in a great mea sure be put down to the wise and liberal assistance given by the Dan ish Government to the farming com munity. The Danish Government has promoted a splendid system of agricultural co-operative associa tions, initiated credit banks, and helped in the marketing. The State also takes care that the Danish farmers and dairymen re - K ceive accurate information about the t markets of other countries, and the requirements of Great ...
DUCKS FOR PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
DUCKS FOR PROFIT. The market carcase of a duck should be round, plump, and fat. The Pekin is conceded to be the hardest variety of the duck family. Where breeding ducks have ac cess to . bathing water, fewer drakes are required. Green food fed the ducks a week before killing for market is apt to produce a yellow appearance to the carcases. The egg of the duck is more rich in fat than that of. the hen. Ducks fatten very rapidly. Care must be taken not Nto overfatten them, for wHen in that condition sudden fright is' aj)t to cause tKeir death. Ducks cannot be taught to lay in nest-boxes. They prefer dropping the eggs wherever they please, and mostly at night. The great secret of fattening ducklings is to begin early, and this can only-be attained by keeping tHe stock, ducks young. It practice it is -iiot profitable to keep the stock ducks more than two years. -? : Ducklings should be kept in small runs,' so that they can' be got ready for the market as early as possible which must be ...
THE FATTENED FOWL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
THE FATTENED FOWL. What is the good of fattening? is one of the questions asked. Does it pay for the extra food? Well- I think it can be safely/ assumed that it does. One thing is certain; that after a. family have had a real good (n^-i u.tiSMi hac heeir fattening the V will not be in a hurry to go back to the 'killed, at a moment's notice' one. Not only do birds weigh much heavier when fatted, but theyjeat so much nicer, and look worth at least twice; as much as. the poor uirfatted bird. Fattening is really a method of ripening. Fat or oil laid upon the various tissues of the body sof tens, and has the effect of making them more tender. This will be found the case in all nature. Fruits fill out, and are plumpest and/ sweetest when ripe, but in all cases the rip ening, if continued too long, tends to decay. In fattening poultry or, in fact, any other animals, two things are absolutely necessary : Firstly, that food given shall tend to the production of flesh ; and sec ondly, that th...

WHEN THE LITTLE STRANGER APPEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
WHEN THE LITTLE STRANGEB APPEARS. Although the custom of making an nouncements of births is not as com mon in America as in the Old World, yet the practice is growing in the United States, and one now sees in the public prints numerous announce ments OI lUe KlilU. J.U ViCW Ui the American tendency to be facetious in such matters, it is not surprising that, on occasion, these announcements should sometimes take a humorous turn. For example, a Westerner named Cash published an announcement in the papers advising his friends that 'he had been presented by his better half with a little Cash.' It was is Indiana that an eccentric poultry dealer named Fox combined a birth announcement with an advertise ment of his wares. He inserted in the local papers a notice to the effect that 'Another little Fox found its way into my establishment between ten and eleven last night, but, notwithstanding ~~ its arrival, there will be no diminution in the number or quality of the geese for which my establ...

'Well,' replied Mrs. Kelly, 'all I kin say is, Mrs. Rafferty, that I get one man's pay, or know the reason why, ivery Saturday night.'
American Hamour. A SLIGHT FLAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
American Humour. ▲ SLIGHT FLAW. When the motor-car was nearly ready to start on again, one of the party, who had been stalled for an hour at the Gorham farm, fell into con versation with Ezra Gorham, who had been standing with gaze riveted on the machine. 'Ever hear of Sherlock Holmes?' asked the traveller. 'Yes, I have,' said Ezra. 'We've a public library down to the village, and m'wife takes out a book a week. I guess we keep up with the day as well as most.' 'Well, now, I'm a bit of a Sherlock Holmes myself,' said the traveller, 'and I've been looking round here a little. Although your farm is in such a remote spot, and without certain modern improvements, I am still of the opinion that you are a man with am bitions, and that an occasional trip to the distant city is included in your scheme of life. I am quite sure that you made one such trip only three years ago.' 'Might I ask how you deducted that?' inquired Ezra Gorham, in his driest tone. 'That little outside thermometer whic...

RAISING THE PRICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 March 1911
RAISING THE PRICE. She was an ingenious milliner. The Chicago 'Post,' which describes one of her devices, does not, however, state whether or not she made the sale. Perhaps that may best be left to the . reader's imagination and his Know ledge of feminine nature. : 'But,' protested the customer, 'this hat is so simple, and has so little on it, that I can't see why you should \ charge fifty dollars for it.' ; 'Yes, ma'am,' agreed the salesper son. 'That's just it. The stuff in' that hat isn't worth over four dollars and a-half, but don't you see you Have ; - all the satisfaction of wearing a high-! priced hat without at the same time giving others the impression that you' . have been extravagant.'
