GOOD SPIRITS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914

GOOD SPIRITS. In these days one important in gredient of attractiveriess is apt to bo" overlooked;: that is, good spirits. Everyone recognises how much can be done to improve the complexion, or the hands, or hair or figure, by rea sonable care and culture; hut it is not so nell understood how much _may be done for the spirits. Yet who would deny that good spirits, joie de vivre, brightlnss, a calm, sunny disposition, are eminently attractive The first thing is to realise that :good spirits are largely a matter of will-power, and have little to do with circumstances; No doubt it is hard to be joyous with the brokers in the house; but we' see every day that spme people inanage to be cheerful, wyheni cheerfulness would seem impos ibhle. And, as a matter of practical experience, we do not find that the women with whom the world goes well, who have delightful husbands and chil dren, good health and plenty of money are the most serene. Nearly all cheerful people like their f:llow-creature...

HOME-CURED BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914

HOME-CURED BACON. Some time ago we referred to a bacon curing demonstration held at Bathurst, under the auspices of the local A., H., and P. Association, the demonstrator being Mr. D. Hogarth, of that city. The process adopted is one that has been in vogue among certain families in the North of England for centuries, and may be considered one of those old family secrets, known only to a limited nulmber, and highly profitable to the owners. At the demonstration, 11 pigs ol varying weight, breed, and feeding were treated. Some of them weighed under 200 tl., while a couple turned the scale at 310 and 350 lb respectively. All of the bacon has since been . out into, and in every case satisfaction has been expressed as to the quality of the product. One of the owners has sold all that he could spare.of the bacoon at 1] per lb, and would make a great fa •vor of selling the hams at 1/6 per lb. The other owne's have, so far, refused to sell at any price. Since the article appeared Mr. Hog ar...

COOKED OR UNCOOKED FOOD FOR PIGS. WHICH IS BEST? [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914

:COOKED=OR UNCOOKED FOOD FOR PIGS. WHICH IS BEST ? The-economic value of cooking food for pigs is frequently discussed, and upon the point divergent views ex pressed. An interesting experiment -upon the subject has been conducted by ono of the agricultural high schools in Wales, and the results there obtain ed go to indicate that there is a slight profit in favour of cooking food. bix pigs were used in the experiment, be ing of the large Yorkshire and Berit shire cross. They were fifteen weeks old at the beginning. The ration given to lot one was 3, lb boiled potatoes, 2, lb barley meal; and to lot two tho same quantities, only the potatoes were raw. Tle potatoes were boiled in sufficient quantity to last a week, and were supplied cold, whereas the potatoes in the case of the second ra tion were pulped after being thorough ly washed. The potatoes and meal w?ero mixed with water and then sup plied to the pigs. The total gain mI the case of the lot which had the boil ed potatoes was 1...

MAKING A STACK COVER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914

MAKING A STACK.COVER. Inl requesting information upon "the best mixture to put on a hessian stack cover to make it waterproof and not to rot it," a correspondent explains that he has tried Stockholm tar and mut ton fat, but that mixturo makes the cover too heavy, and the tar is liable to burn the fibre of the cover. This Sresplondent is informed that a sat is'factory waterproof cover cannot be made from hessian, and in the long run it is clcalier to get a canvas cover, and 'tcve it passed through a solution to ,.lake it rotproof. With oare such a uc. ~ r lasts for years. A process of watt-oroofing worth a trial is as fol lows: -Inmgredients- 2 oz. soap, 4 oz. glue, i gal. water.

Crs Lynn and F Nixon had been deput d by the Shire Council to wait on the Minister of Railways in re gard to the matter and left for Melbourne ior that purpose on Monday last.

GENOA January 19. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 23 January 1914

GENOA (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 19. Some time ago Mr Karl Rasmus, harbormaster at Mallacoota, brought under the notice of the Engineer for Ports and Harbors the necessity of having the river snagged and the rocks blown out to a depth of five feet below water in order to make the river navi- gable for motor boat traffic. Tenders have now been called for the work, and, when completed, the boats will be able to come within a mile of the main cross- ing. The new tennis club's grounds were opened last Saturday and were well patronised. About 50 persons attended the opening function, and a nice spread and afternoon tea were provided by the ladies. The maize crops are looking very well, but rain is much needed. Messrs Brown Bros., of Yambulla, have discovered gold in the Artiseek Ranges, within a few miles of the coast and have pegged out claims. Gold was found in quartz on the surface, and the show improves as it goes down.
