AN EXCELLENT SALAD (GERMAN WAY). [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 12 June 1914
A.V EXCELLENT SALAl) (GER MAN WAY). When a'grcoii salad is difficult to get, one mudo of potato is a pala t nbio accompaniment to cold meat. It is a common mistake to allow the boiled .potatoes to get cold. It is most essential, if they have be come cold, that they be reheated before sliced, and put into'the dress ing, otherwise the absorption will not .properly take placo. It should consist of equal parts of oil, vine gur, nud boiling water, pepper, and suit to taste, a few minced capers, or chopped gherkin, or some boned anchovies ; a little minced onion may likewise be added with advan tage : so, too, a little chopped celery. It will .be seen how easy it is to vary tho flavour'.of potato salad, by adding to or otherwise omitting any ono or more of the ingredients named. After mixing tho snlnd ought to stand for - a few min utes in front of tho fire to aid the absorption of tho dressing. Of course, it. is eaten cold ; but should not be kept .too long before.uso. .

With the Brand, of --- BUSY DAYS AMONG THE CATTLE ON AN AUSTRALIAN RANCH. . It has boon, well said that in cer tain parts of .- Australia theio arc just two main'.industries,,' cattle raising and "eattle-dulhng. Tho dirterenco is that ono man, the one engaged in tho "raising, * breeds the cattle ; the other., brands them-with his own brand. Tho "duflor's" programme is first to take up a small pieco of country on the margin of a big man's sta tion, then buy a small stock 01 breeders, say 100 head. Sometimes, too, even his alleged breeders may be working bullocks-anything, in fact, that answers to tho descrip tion of "cattlo." A capital of £200 will see lain well on the way to a fortune. All he now has to do is t.o ' sit tight and avoid company. The average pastoralist does not employ a sufli i cient number of'men to "brand up I his calves as they are born-it would | be next door to impossible for him to do so, 'in view of the immense size of his holding-and consequent: ly the "duffer...

Feoplo lUiuk tlmt when a society guarantees, for a consideration, ft man's fidelity, it, at any rate, be lieves that honesty is not ex tinct. Doar, doar ! As a fact, it ofton stands bond for sotuobody whom it would uot trust alono with the petty caeb&lt; And it can well nfiord to do so because it gets an Indemnity from the man's relatives. By some means a worthless rascal obtained a Poor Law appointment, and r certain offleo guaranteed his | honesty to-tho oxtent of £500. In less than six months ho bollod with over £400, which the Insurers had to pay. Not a penny, how ever, did tliry lose. The runaway's unfortunate . relatives reimbursed the society in ffiiH, Contrary to popular belief, a so ciety nearly always insists that a warrant Bhnll be taken out for an embezzler. This is done, not In the interests of justice-for who ever knew a guarantee society nc . tuaHy prosecuto ?-but 'for self-pro tect...
CHAPTER XLIV. CONCLUSION. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 12 June 1914
' CHAPTER XLIV. CONCLUSION. - To describe the final struggle, tho bloody carnage, the desperate fero city of the combatants, the scenes of horror anil' panic that abounded in the ill-fated town between tho hours of midnight and two in the morning-these things would rcquiro more space than is availablo. What took place while Dick and his friends were rescuing Mary may bo passed over briefly. The formidable band of conspira tors, led by Archbold and' Trask, easily took possession of tho passage to the upper town, and drove back the few who opposed them until the alarm brought Gore and a large force on the scene. Then tho latter, attacked with intrepid fury by the mutineers, and fighting no less valor onsly themselves, yielded literally inch by inch, retreating over their dead from house to house, from street to street. Meanwhile tho great er part of. the populace of tho lower town, who were unarmed and not in the plot, -played of necessity a pas sive part. , > - In vain did Jason G...
