POISONED MILLIONAIRE. SECRET MOONLIGHT TRIPS. AND VALUABLE PRESENTS. DETECTIVE-NURSE'S SENSATIONAL STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
POISONED MILLIONAIRE. SECRET MOONLIGHT TRIPS. AND VALUABLE PRESENTS. DETECTIVE-NURSE'S SENSA TIONAL STORY. Interest In the trial of Mrs Laura Schenck (the ex-servant girl who be 1 came the wife of a millionaire pork packer of Wheeling, West Virginia) for the attempted murder of her husband by poison grows instead of diminishing (said "Lloyd's News" on January 22). Each day brings more dramatic and sensational evidence than the preceding one. Mrs Schenck says the charge against her has been concocted by her husband's family, who were always bitterly op ! posed to tier marriage. They, on their ! side, assert that she was anxious to go : into society, had matrimonial designs on ' more than one dashing young Virginian, and, therefore, tried to put her husband out of the way. | After the accusations about Mrs I Schenck's . partiality ' for the young 1 bloods of Virginian society, it was a surprise to find the prosecution putting into the box the man whom they de scribed as her lover. His...

CAPE DISASTER. HEROISM OF INJURED DOCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
CAPE DISASTER. HEROISM OF IWJURED DOCTOR. The railway accident at Gaikas Loop on the night of January 4 v.-as the worst disaster that has taken place in South Africa since that of Glencoe in 1895 (says the Capetown correspondent of the "Daily News"). A crowded trainload of people, chiefly women and children, was returning from a holiday at East London. The train had descended at a good speed a steep incline, and at midnight wad traversing a curved embankment about 15ft high across a gully nine miles to the south of Cathcart, when six coaches topplad over to the bottom of the embankment through the couplings snapping. The editor of the "East London Despatch," -who was a.passenger in the train, de scribes the scene that followed. He was suddenly awakened, he says, with the feeling that he was slowly and deliber ately slipping Into an endless abyss. His compartment overturned and col lapsed. Then there was a wonderful calm for a tnomcnt, broken Immediately after by the cries of agony a...
SENTIMENTALISM AND CRIME. LETTERS OF AN ENGLISHMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
SENTIMENTALISM AND CRIME. LETTERS OP AN ENGLISHMAN. Of late years our legislators have considered far too amiably the suscep tibilities of the criminal. The law abiding: citizen appears a dull thing in their eyes. With a sort of Pharisaism they have applauded their own gener I oslty and broad-mindedness. Other i nations have very properly refused the | right of asylum to murderers and j housebreakers. Here was an admirable opportunity to prove that the English Radical was not as the politicians who control the destinies of the European Continent. The Aliens Act, faulty enough In theory, was made In prac tice of small effect, In order that our Ministers, wanning their hands before the fire of vainglory, might boast that every man was free who had once set foot upon the sacred soil of England. And thus London has become the re fuge, the rubbish-heap, of the world (says a writer in the "Daily Mail.") The criminal, driven by a wise Justice from Berlin or Paris, knows that he will meet ....

ANIMALS AND WEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
' / ANIMALS AND WEEDS. ?It is well known thabanimnls through their droppings are the means of propa gating weeds, but the spread isinot con fined to stock. Birds assist In the work. Many small- weeds are carried by ants from 'place-, to.' place, : and other instances could be given. A curious Instance * of the . ac tion of fowls In favoring the survival of weed may be-mentioned. " A-particular plot of ground', overrun bv a few fowls, contained mainly rye grass,; Dutch "clover, and prairie . gras, with small amounts of couch grass, plaintain, dock, and burr clover. .. Although' the/ground was too hard to scratch or break in sum mer, and the turf too , thick In wipter," within one year both the clovers and the two flrst-mentloned grasses had practic ally disappeared,. leaving mainly plan tain with a little dock and couch grass. Hence, although fowls may destroy In sects in a pasture, their, general action will be to cause it to* deteriorate, par ticularly If allowed 'on It in'spring w...

PERFUMES FROM FLOWERS. A SIMPLE METHOD. "The blending of certain kinds of per fumes (states an American expert in the "Scientific American") is a matter of much scientific and skilful manipula tion; but the most commonly used per fumes can be made with simple appar atus /and without much trouble. In many parts of lhe country flowers are so abundant that .one can harvest all Uiat is needed for manufacturing at home perfumes enough for a year's use. "Direct distillation is the most satis factory way of making perfumery. The still is of simple construction, and it can be made out of articles usually found in the home. Take an ordinary tin oilcan, scour it, and purify it of all oil odors. Stop the spout completely, and fit a cork in the top, through which the oil is poured. Get 4ft. of copper tubing (tin or galvanised iron pipe may also be used), and bond the end down wards. "The oilcan should be filled with 1 lb of (lower petals, gathered, fresh in. the early morning.

HOMELY FARE. CONCERNING PASTRY. Pa>;try is at all times a very popular diet... it.. lias ccrtain advantages over other foods. But there is pastry that is-light and digestible, and pastry that Is hot so. The routine of pastry-mak'ng is of great 'Importance; if care is not given to this, .it is useless to attempt | to produce eatable pies 'or tarts. For | one thing, the flour should be fine, and may be dried in the oven. It is fre quently necessary to sift it to prevent the accumulation of lumps: The fat must , be next considered; this'mav be butter, lard, or dripping, . but it -must be perfectly sweet.

CHOOSING THE BOAR. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
CHOOSING TJIE BOAJl. There is no excuse for using anything but a good, pure-bred boar when one can be had for a reasonable price. Wo have all heard the saying, like produces like. Certainly this; is true' to a largo extent. The pure-bred boar will tra-ns mlt his own qualities or characteristics to his off-spring: hence lie -vill produce more uniform and superior individuals. Greater progress is sure to come from the judicious use and careful handling of_ the pure-bred boar. - Experienced breeders have found it difficult to define what they mean by character, though 'they are- able- to de-. termine at. aglance a desirable animal. Character implies''conforma tion?; to-the best type of the;-breed. We "generally associate character 'With a boar that has a bold, , striking;-walk and ". "good general appearance; masculine ;in every point and action. Individuality is o*f,greater c mscquence that pedigree.

DENMARK'S DAIRY COWS. TWO BREEDS FAVORED. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
DENMARK'S DAIIIY COWS. TWO BREEDS FAVORED. The million dairy, cows oC Denmark are coniincd almost exclusively in two breeds - tlie Danish Red, of Nciv Zea land and the Islands, and. the Jyslte, or black and white cow ,o£ Jutland. Both of these have been developed within the last thirty-five years, from the native stock of the country, by careful selec tion for milk production. The red cow is a product of a cross of Schleswig blood on' the native rather scrubby cattle. The result Is a race of fine dairy cattle weighing from 1000 to 1100 pounds. They are dark red with black muzzle, medium size, deep body, medium bone,' fine skin, and well-developed udder and veins. The blacks and whites of Jut land have been developed from the beef breed used in earlier times. They are a larger breed than tile red cow, resem bling the IIolstein-Friesians in color and size, but are shorter in leg and deeper in body than the Dutch cow. Both of these breeds have ;i distinctively dairy conformation and ar...

WATER TOR COWS. WARMING SUGGESTED. " In cold weather (states-an .

Experiments made* at the 'Missouri Station show that drinking water is needed in proportion, to the, milk yield. That is,".a cow giving six gallons of milk a day .needs about twice as much water as a cow giving three gallons a day. If the water is too. cold to be comfortr vable if drunk in large quantities the cow will not drink enough," nnd-^as a result wili drop considerably in her.milk yield.
