KITCHEN HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 13 September 1912

.41- - KITCHEN HINTS. When the eyes ache relieve them by closing the lids for five or ten minuteB. If they have a burning sensation, bathe them with hot water to which a dash of witch-hazel has been added; if the whites are yellow and the pupils dull strict attention should be paid to diet. To keep the coffee pot sweet and clean put a tablespoonful of carbonate of soda into it, fill it nearly full of water, and let it boil for a little while. Then rinse very thoroughly with sev eral lots of warm water. If this is done once a week, the pot will be. always fresh and nice. To clean water-bottles, pickle-jars, or any . glass that is stained, when un able to get the hand in to wash prop- . erly, crush the shell of an egg small enough to get through the neck of the bottle, add a little warm water, shake well, and you will not only find the glass clean but the bottle nicely pol ished. The following method is excellent for cleaning and polishing irons. FirBt of all saturate a cloth with wat...

INSTINCT V. MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 13 September 1912

INSTINCT V. MEMORY. A love of home is one of the most powerful emotions birds and beasts experience. No trouble is too great if only the familiar spot can be reached, and everyone has heard of wonderful instances of long journeys being taken by all sorts of animals in their determination to return home. Most of these examples ae supplied by domesticated animals, such as cats and dogs, but many may be found amongst wild creatures which, having once chosen their quarters, will re turn to them in spite of all sorts of difficulties. From such instances it is quite ob vious that the love of home is a wide ly .distributed instinct, strong in some cases, absolutely absorbing in others. So far, good, but what we now want to know is *o what extent may the in stinct in question be said to' assist those which possess it to gain their hearts' desire. It is one thing to long for home, another to get there. We are face to face with one of those problems over which much ink has been spilt, yet, wh...

Many .years-ago there lived m Asia a kingwho- t.hotjght that he was a very wise ruler, but, 'he thought that his people did not ' think him/ good enough. ? So he tried to .find -out 'some way that would make them admire him more. He called a number of his nobles together and told them that he had a secret long ing. They at once ? asked what it' was, 'and he told them that he wanted a great drum made/ - It must be so large,' said he, ' that when struck it may be heard at a distance of ten leagues from my palace/ ' His nobles felt sure that; such a drum' could not be' made, - and thev all answered ; together, ' Oh, King ! such cannot be done.' ' Why can't it be 'done f' cried the king, angry at once, ' It must be done, if I say i so.' But at that moment a- soldier i of high rank entered, and when the matter was explained to him, he said, 'Sire, lean and will put to gether such a drum, but it will cost a great deal.'

P.LAY UP, BRITANNIA! Germany Beats Us by Building the World's Largest Ship. * The First Ocean Liner to Possess a Ballroom. The German Emperor visited Ham burg the other day and launched the new Hamburg-American liner. He christened the great ship with the words, 'I christen thee 'Imperator,' ' as she glided smoothly into the sea. The . 'Imperator' .is a vessel of o0,000 tons, and will, therefore, be the largest ship in the world. She is SSft. long, with a beam of 96ft7 She will have accommodation in all for 5,275 persons — S00 first, 1500 second, 975 third, 1800 steerage, and. 1100 crew and, in accordance with the . original' designs, which have in no way been ^ altered by recent happenings, ? will carry enough lifeboats to hold every passenger and every member of the crew.

" In Memoriam." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 13 September 1912

' In Memoriam.' ? « ? : — On Sunday morning, 1st inst., an impressive ' in memoriam ' service was conducted in the local Church of England by the Rector. Special hymns, lessons and psalms were used, and at the close of the service Handel's Dead March in Saul was beautifully rendered by the organist, Mr A. Jorgensen. I he Uharch was suitably draped for the occasion, and a good congregation was present. The Rector preached from St. Mat thew, 26 — 42, on the words, ' Thy Will be Done,' and, after comment ing upon the general meaning of these words, applied them to the families which had feo recently been bereaved, in each case of a mother. He spoke first of all of the life and work of the late Mrs A. Ducret, whose good life had been enriched by much Church work, and who had been called upon to undergo much suffering. The preacher then made appropriate re ference to the death of Mrs J. W. King, and dwelt feelingly npon her afflicted life, and the way in which her work as a mother could ...

THE DIGESTIVE PROCESS IN CATTLE. Rumination, or "Chewing the Cud." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 13 September 1912

THE DIGESTIVE PROCESS IN I CATTLE. Rumination, or 'Chewing the Cud.' j The phenomenon of cud-chewing, to which singular process the ox and sheep alone of the animals of the farm subject to their food, is most interest ing to anyone who cares to take the trouble to watch it, and, needless to say, its proper performance is of vital importance to the health and tlirifti ness of the class of stock to which the function belongs. Why a horse has a comparatively small stomach and a long intestine, and th« ox an enormous paunch, three other so-called 'stomachs,' and a short intestinal canal, why one chews its food a second time and the other doesf not, is not clear; but it is supposed that the function was developed far back in times when graminivorous an imals were harassed by beasts of prey. They travelled in flocks or herds to the feeding grounds, bolted their food hurriedly, and then return ed to some place of quiet and safety to chew it at leisure. There are several theories as to the ...

ECONOMIC SHEEP FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 13 September 1912

ECONOMIC SHEEP FEEDING. I Mr. E. Crouch, one of the Gobba ?gumbalin (Wagga) closer settlement farmers, gave a valuable, object-lesson during the. recent dry spgll in eco nomic feeding of sheep. In January he bought 400 two-tootli ewes in low condition. They were turned into a hill paddock, in which there was a fair amount of dry teed and plenty ot water. When the grass had failed, owing to the continued dry weather, the sheep' were turned into a lucerne patch for 5 minutes each day. Mr.. Crouch has about four acres of land under irrigation in two paddocks of two acres each. The crop is in its second year, and when the sheep were first turned in the lucerne was about three inches high. The sheep were grazed in each of the two paddocks al ternately, one being used as soon as the other was eaten out. This order was observed for about two months, each patch being spelled and given a watering while the sheep were being fed in the other. At the end of March, when they were first let into ...

PASTURE CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 13 September 1912

PASTURE CULTIVATION. It is one of the most satisfactory , signs of progress in the right direc- 1 tion that farmers are devoting much more attention to the proper cultiva- ' tion of their pastures and meadows. These portions of the farm, too long treated with neglect, are now being managed in such a manner as to in- ' crease their valuable productive ca pacity. urass is maispensaDie on an well-regulated farms, and in its direct money value, and also in its collateral and indirect benefits, it is worth more to the world than all other cere il crops combined. Its direct is nothing to its indirect value in the influence it has in preserving the fertility of farms by its manurial wealth in many forms. No man can thrive on a farm, and no farm can be selfsup porting where grass is wholly neg lected, or advantage is not taken of stock raised on grass farms. It is supposed by many that only such soil as is not fit for cultivation in the ce reals or roots should be devoted to grass. This is ...

The Wimmera and Its Resources. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 13 September 1912

The Wimmera and Its Resources. It is the Wiinmera's proud privilege to boast continued progress. Each year its resources are proved mere and more by intelligent and methodical cultivation. Its arable lands become more extensively ana profitably em- - ployed from season to season, with the result that now they are yielding the fullest possible increase of which , present methods of iarming ana tacin- i ties for marketing have made them | capable. The history of the vast terri- j tory is something of a romance. In the earliest stages it might have been likened to a huge sheep run, with cereal-growing as a mere side line for the purposes of fodder. Those were the days when the periodical drought held the land in its clutches, only loos ening its hold in order that the pioneer might peep through the folds in the ivoven .curtain and view the richness of the land which in time was to be come a mighty factor in the State's production. But progress came slowly. The selector was distrustful ...
