FACTORS WHICH DECIDE SEXUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896
FACTORS WHICH DECIDE SEXUALITY. i (Agricultural Gazette .)t , Animals which are greatly used sexually \ produce more individuals of their own sex, \- because in the male the sperma is too quickly ' used by continaal sezual application, and ' fecundation takeB place with relatively young ?' epermat( z )a. More malea are then produced, i whereas a male, not overworked sexually, pro duces more females on account of the older state of its epermatczoa. The same relation exists in the female. The ova sooner fecun dates with tendency to the female aes. Hence when individuals of one sex are in the minority, and are, therefore, more frequently used, the recent sexual products are in constant demand, the Individuals of the name sex follow. The aame effect a3 sexual over-exertion Is Caused by defioient nutrition, when the sexual Byatem is constantly lu demand. Weak bulls brought together with otrong cows produce more bull calvep, weak cows and strong bulls more heifers. Age must also be consid...

OIL PLANTS. While he was In Victoria the South Aus tralia Minister of Education made some en quiries into the work which the Government were carrying on there to encourage the manu facture of various vegetable oils. 'There appears,' says Dr. Oockburn, ?' an avenue of considerable profit to the farming, community in this direction . The Victorian Government imports £14,C00 worth of lubricators per annum for the railway alone, and It is needless to aay that Bunfbwers, rape, hemp, linseed, castor, peanut, til, and other oil-producing plants grow in profusion in many partB of this and the adjoining colony. In older to en. courage the production in this respect the department has imported a complete plant of oilmaklng machinery, which the Minister (Mr..

THINGS A HOUSEWIFE OUGHT TO KNOW. Every housewife ought to know that many invalids who would not touch a raw egg beaten np with either sherry or cinnamon water will take it prepared as follows : — WhiBk the yolk of a new-laid egg with a teaBpoontul of castor sagar for five minutes, add a little nutmeg, and - pour in gradually about half a tumblerful of boiling milk ; place in cold water or on ice until q lite cold, and stir in a tablespoonful o! brandy the last thing before serving the mix ture. ' That a few grains of permanganate of potash dissolved in a little water mike a strong and inexpensive disenfectant and deodoriser for the eick room, and also a useful gargle and mouth wash in cases cf sore throat. ? That a tough steak may be made tender by being allowed to steep in a small quantity o* v vinegar for some hours before cocking. I should be turned from time to time. That a cup of moderately strong tea, in which two or three ttia slices of lemon have been infused, will frtquent...
DRINKS DURING HOT WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896
DRINKS DURING HOT WEATHER. There is no doubt (says a writer on hygiene) that it is a perfectly natural craving which we all feel during hot weather for an unusual amount of I -quid. The waste which we con stantly suffer is greatly increased through the freer working of the perspiratory glands. The amount of drink which we require to repair this waste depends, of course, on the amount of exercise we take, the degree ot heat we are exposed to, and, in *a measure also, on the character of our solid food. Then, too, temperament has much to do with the feelirg of thirst ; quiet and phleg matic people, as a rule, feeling it much less than those who are of a nervous and excitable temperament. Liquids are indispensable to digestion, but it ia a bad plan to drink immediately before a meal, because the gastric j nice ia by this means diluted, so that the digestion of solid food cannot be so fully accomplished as when the fluid ia not taken into the body until the meal is over, or at any rate ...
OLD-FASHIONED TABLE BOUQUETS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896
OLD-FASHIONED TABLE BOUQUETS. These used to be made up of sweet scented fljwers and fragrant leafy sprays ; but, un fortunately, they are now so much things of the past that the Bight of one would be quite a relief, compared with tho often densely-packed mushroom borquets of cur own time. The old pory chiifl? consisted of a haDdful of bright 11 -wera aud fresh green leaves, while one of its principal charms was tbe total absence of all the so-called modern art of the oouquet in its arrangement. No delicate blossoms from conservatory or gr en-houee were there ; but in their places we had clove ptnks, csraatlons, white lilies, sweet-williams, ;carlet fuchsias, sprays of honeysuckle, and branches of fragrant rosemary, southern wood, and sweet brier, intermixed with moBS roEe buds and oabbage roses. These wore arrauged as they were cut — a rosebud here, and a ppray of mignonette or pafliiuiine there — each flower having a fair accompaniment of i'.a own foliage, no that color was balance...

THE TWO BUSHEL BAG. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896
THE TWO BUSHEL BAG. Many AuatralianB-have an idea that grain elevators are in general use all over the United States. It is a mistake. There ia not one ia the State of California, and I am safe in saying there are none on the entire Pacific Coas\ There is no necessity for them. All the grain in that section intended for foreign shipment must be Backed. The vessels en gaged la the trade are 90 per cent, or more sailing ship?, not fitted for carrying loose grain, while, on the other hand, all the carrying trade of the Eiatern seaboard is confined to whale back and other steamer?, built in com partments, especially for the carriage of loose grain, and there elevators are in general use. The standard wheat sacks U3ed in that sec. tion are made of Indian jute, and are all of a uniform sizs, v'z , 24ln. x 36in., holding from 1531b. to 1451b. In former years the Dundee and Bombay factories had a monopoly of the aack trade of California, and prices ranged from 8 (41.) to 9 cents (4£i.). Fou...
CIDER. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896
CIDER. Mr. E. Hnlme, of Oxley, has forwarded to the Australasian a very interesting article in cider making. Mr. Hulme hails from that famous cider county Devonshire, and deems to be fully conversant with the manufacturing of this wholesome and refreshing beverage, but he deals chic fly with the unfermented cider which is so much appreciated and bo largely drunk in the old country. For the making cf this kind of drink, he aays it ia an error to suppose that what are known as cider kind are necesseary, and that the choicest dessert kinds are equally good. The apples should be carefully picked or Bhaken from the trees (in England the orchards are generally covered with grasp) \ if immediately crushed a Blight bruise may not make much difference, but when the fruit is allowed to He in heaps for some time and become decayed It should not be used. When the apples have been crushed the juice Is taken to the cellar and placed in large clean casks ; boch night and day watch is kept for the ...

The address to the Qaeen affirming the loyalty of the Dominion of Canada to the throne and the empire, which was voted ' unanimously by the Canadian House of Commons last nighf, was the occasion of perhaps the most remarkable demonstration of loyalty ever witnessed in the Canadian Parliament.
