FRUIT CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 12 April 1934
FRUIT CASES. The old saying, 'carrying coal, to Newcastle' has often been used to draw attention to unnecessary or absurd importations into a country, but nothing should be more unneces sary than- -the . conveyance of hun dreds of thousands of pine cases into Tasmania from countries, 10,000 to 12,000 miles distant, when equally as serviceable timber for the making of the cases is to be .obtained' in the State's own forests. This season the importation of pine 'cases' .'/from foreign countries 'is greater,;'; than usual, with .the result that aKcoiv responding decrease has overtaken the- local sawmilling industry: i . Every , year there is a mild- protest from the millmen against their liveli hood being taken away from them, and this is followed by an equally half-hearted reply . on the part ; of the fruitgrowers that they use the pine ' cases because they are cheaper or. better, or that the buyers prefer ?this type ' of .case. The truth of .the matter is that neither the saw-' ? ? s...
A FEW POINTS ABOUT DUCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 12 April 1934
A FEW POINTS ABOUT ; DUCKS. Ducks, perhaps even more than most birds and animals, do better with soriie people than others. They are highly nervous (it is said) and seem to know when they are appreciated and when merely allowed to exist. Al though they are almost easier to man-N age than hens, they need different treatment. They are very much crea tures of habit and learn their habits so thoroughly (which is very useful if they are well trained) , that it upsets them to harve their regular ways or lo- ^ cality changed. If they are not reared where they are to lay, then they should be put into laying quarters a few weeks before the first egg is expected. If they make use of wet, swampy ground for foraging, they must come up to dry, sheltered quarters to sleep arid lay. Some are better with mash rather than grain feed as their diges tive organs are made for soft, easily * digested foods. Also they need meat meal if you want full production at the colder periods of the jjear unless cur...

SAFE ON MOTHER EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 12 April 1934
' SAFE - ON MOTHER EARTH. A young man fell into a state of coma, but recovered before his friends had buried him. One of them asked what it felt like to be .dead. 'Dead,' he exclaimed. 'I wasn't dead, and I knew I wasn't dead, be cause my feet were cold, and I was .hungry.' 'But how did that make you sure?' 'Well, I knew that if I were in hea ven I shouldn't be' hungry, and if I were in the other place my feet . wouldn't be cold.' ; A .clergyman noticed a woman 1 named Mrs. Brown, whom he much dis liked, coming up his front steps. Tak- . iijig refuge in his study, he left his .wife to entertain the caller., ? . Half an hour later he emerged from ' his retreat; listened carefully at the door, -and, hearing nothing 'below, called out to his wife: 'Has that hor rible old woman gone?' The woman was still in the drawing room, but the minister's 'wife proved equal to the occasion. ? 'Yes, dear,' she called back, 'she - went long ago. Mrs. Brown is here now.' ' Doorkeeper (in public buildi...

CHANGES IN THE TEAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 12 April 1934
CHANGES IN THE TEAMS: Many changes will be noticed in the Huon teams this season, the one that will probably be the least af fected being Kermandie. Hector Eyles will again lead the red and blues, and with the good grounding he gave the team last season, and the bulk of the combination still in tact, he expects to lift the club con siderably on the premiership list. Those of last year's reliables who are already training include Harry With rington, Syd. Gane, Rodger Palmer, Ray Martin, Jack Ashlin, S. Tucker, B. Rodd, and Jack Warren. Of the new men, H. Goggins, one of the best pocket back players of North Hobart last year, is likely to be the most prominent. It is not definitely cer tain yet if he will leave the city, but the Kermandieites are very hopeful that he will. C. Houghton, from Irish Town, is to be given a try-out. He looks a likely player. W. Jones, another player from North Hobart, is also in the district, and will ma terially strengthen the ruck. Huonville, last year's...

NEW NORFOLK CLUB The New Norfolk club has decided to join the Southern District Foot ball Association. Last year the club won the premiership of the Southernl Country Association, . but decided to sever their connection with that body this year. The annual report stated, that the debit balance of the previous season of £12 had been re duced: to £7, but regret was . ex pressed at the lack of support given to club functiotnls by the members, though the women's committee had done much to assist the finances of the club. The election of officers for the en suing year resulted as follows: — - Patron, Mr L. M. Shoobridge M.L.C.; vice-patron, Dr. G. F. Read; presi dent, Mr J. J. Dwyer, M.H.A. ; sec retary, Mr R. F.

SOUFFLE HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 12 April 1934
/ SOUFFLE HINTS. .. . . The souffle is one of, the simplest dishes to prepare, but it is, often, a failure because some essential thing has been neglected. Roughly,- the fol- ' lowirig hints are the chief to be ob served, if the souffle is- to turn-out light' and appetising: — Be sure that the whites of the eggs are whipped until they . stand quite stiffly when dropped from' the wisk or .fork. ,. Do. not add thein all at once' to : thd rest of the mixture, but let a spoonful at a tiine fall into it, and stir lightly on each occasion. Don't forget to tie a piece of buf fered paper, folded two or three times, round your souffle dish, so that, when the mixture rises there will be 'some- thing to hold it in position above the dish itself.. ? - Though you must not turn the souffle out- of the dish when serving, it is just as well to grease the dish before plac- ' ing it in the oven; this makes it much easier to get the souffle from the sides when dividing it into portions. When you are d...
