"BARGAINS." The Essentials of a Good Purchase. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 July 1914
"BARGAINS." Tile Essentials of a Good PurchEtG. Good quality, favorable prices, and Individual needs are the essential characteristics of a good bargain. Most people are capable "^-ot judging the quality aud the price, but many forget that individual need is by no moans the least of tiie three essentials. Good housekeepers, like good bosi ness men, do not buy simply because they gain an advantage in price by purchasing at a certain season or on account of the extra discount offered for taking a quantity. The man oi business thinks of the money lying idle in that extra stock; he remembers his rem and counts the value of the space occupied, and then he works an easy arithmetical proposition, which aften shows him that it will cost more in interest and rent to hold that ex cess stock than if he paid regulation prioes and bought Just as he wanted the material. It i3 practically 'ihc same with housi wives. An article is not a bargain if you.do not need it, or if you have to stow it away;...

PREPARATION OF HIDES AND SKINS FOR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 July 1914
PREPARATION OF HIDES AND SKINS FOR MARKET. Some useful hints were recently made on the preparation of tiidea and ski»6 for market by Mr I Jacobs, a ntenibor at the recent meeting of a South .Australian Agricultural So~ cicty. Hides, Mr Jacob's pointed out should be carefully removed, and should not be scarred or have holes cut through them. After the hide is re« moved it should be spread out, flesh side upwards and liberally dressed with course salt. It should then be folded lengthwise, the two edges meeting in the centre, and then the fuldLg re punted. It should then be rolhd from neck to tail, the latter being used as u band to tie it. The hide thus rolled should be placed in a bag and hunt; up to drain, and marketed as soon as convenient. Oalf skins should be treated in this way also' Sheep skins should be carefully hung lengthT wise over a rail, v,ool downwards, and Jeft till quite dry. Some interesting particulars were added in regard to skinning foxes and rabbits. In skin ning...

Maryborough last week was oue on the wheat in dustry by Mr A E V Richardson, ( lit Government) agricultural expert. Mr Kicbardson takes an optimistic view of tlio future of wheub giowing in Australia. The pi'osfint export of wheat from tbo Oommonweoltb only, amounts to 2 per cent) of the world'8 production. Doubliug or even trebling Australia's present output, Mr Rich ardson pointed out, would have no appreciable effect on prices in the world's markets. Older countries are not likely to materially increase their present output, and bread eating, peoplo are rapidly increasing. So the good prices of tho past decade are likely to continue. Mr Richardson stated that the ex pansion of the wheat industry in Australia would como from the utili sation of areas at present outside the rajis;o of cultivation, and an increase of yield over tho present wheat areas.

Horses and Men. A Boston man tells of* an inno* cent /armor who once .10 iij'it out it phrenologist at tho Hub nnd f.sked that his "bumps ho rond." In rovonlu«ir to &lt;.h*i f Armor M« torn: eminent as *jHo.VII by Aforesaid bumps, tho professor said : " Your tastes are the simple, homely ones of the farmer. You arc a farmer, are you not ? Ah I X thought so. And I am right as to your tastes, am I not ? You are' sadly deficient in judgment, aud have little knowledge of human na ture. Your innocent and trustful disposition renders you an easy dupe to designing men, and your own perfect honesty prevents you from either suspecting or defraud ing anyone." The following week, it appears, the phrenologist bought a horse from tho innocent, farmer. Although the nng was old and in bad condition, it had been nmdo to appear young and skittish. Moreover, though the farmer had paid but £5 for the ani mal, he contrived without dim* cully to unload him on the pro* feSvSor for £15. "It's wond...

Rats' Tails at Fourpence Each. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 July 1914
Rats' Tails at Fourpence Each. Jt is calculated that there i.t one rat to every acre in England and Wales, and each rodent does dam age to the extent of one farthing per day, which represents a total loss of £10,000,000 to the country. The annual bill for the upkeep of a small army of cats and rat-cat chers at the London Docks amounts to hundreds of pounds per year, and though a thousand rats are killed there every week, the offi cials cannot exterminate the pests. The whole of tlio civilised world is now engaged in a war of ox termination against the plague carrying, unnecessary, and destruc tive rat. Australia has spent £60, 000 upon a single structure intend ed as a barrier, and Denmark in troduced a successful Anti-Rat Bill. This Bill provided for the payment of a premium of not less than a half-penny and not more than a penny, according to the districts, for each rat captured, the money being supplied by a State grant. Rat- hunting becamo almost a national pastime with the 'Dan...

His benefits may | be considered as parallel to what are called comforts or conveniences in arrangements of a personal na ture, like an easy chair or a good fire, which do their part in dis pelling cold and fatigue, though na ture provides both means of rest and nnimal heat without them. i The true gentleman in like manner carefuJIy avoids whatever may causa thoso \olii whom he is cn*t-nil clashing of opinion, or collision of feeling, ali restraint, or suspicion, or gloom, or resentment ; his great1 concern being to make everyone at their en*e and at home.
