HOW TO REMOVE CRATES WHEN FULL. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

HOW TO REMOVE CRATES j S WHEN rUXL. i The amateur Imagines this to be fnj ] easy task, and being anxious to harvest! his first surplus, takes oft the rack to ai little distance from the hives and there) leaves it, imagining that whilst he fet-i ches others the bees will be in process o£ removing. To his horror,, he finds there' is a perfect hubbub, for the bees far and, near seem to have scented it, and are helping themselves. Many beautiful sec tions have been spoiled in this manner, for the bees in their desire to rob, per forate the cappings, and afterwards these "weep," as it is called. Take a board tftie size of the super, and in the middle place a Porter Bee Escape. Put this under the rack the previous evening and next morn ing the super will be deserted.

A GHOST STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

A GHOST ' STORY. iffijSp 'ghost' of bellicose tendencies iasSroubling the peace of mind of the occupants of an old-fashioned inn in a village near Pontypool. According to the narrative of the proprietor, | uncanny noises have been heard al most nightly for some weeks. A few nights ago the landlord's son, after he had retired for the night, heatd a click, as though someone had pulled the trigger of a pistol. This was fol lowed by a groaning noise and the slamming of a door. "Ho conducted a search through the house, but could find nothing un usual. A day o:-' two later a customer put up at tho dnn for the night. Soon,after he had retired, he aroused the landlord in alarm and complained that while in bed he "was struck on the face two or three times by some mysterious figure. He struck a light, but, to his surprise, found himself alone in tho room. There were marks on his cheek where he had been struck. "Nor could the proprietor throw light on the occurrences. He told of a further curi...

AN OLD CUSTOMER. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

AN OLD CUSTOMER. A genial and hospitable Boniface was wont to pose as Father Christ mas when the festive season came round. At such times an enormous pork pie-graced the bay counter, and customers were invited each and all to help themselves. One Christmas Eve a stranger walked in, sat down, and coolly cut off a bulky slice. Half an hour later the man was eating as ravenously as ever, and tho landlord could stand it no longer "'You'll excuse me, sir," he re marked, tapping the hungry one on the shoulder, " but I don't seem to remember your face. Youlre not a customer?" "Pardon me," was the polite re sponse, as the stranger helped him self to another- slice, "I was here last Christmas Eve, and"—with his mouth full of pie—"if all goes well T shall bo here next!" Romance, in literature as In life, is a masculine rather than a feminine quality. The average man is an incor rigible, if inarticulate, romantic. The average woman, even in her own love affairs, does not attain to it. She has ...

BROWN LUCERNE HAY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

BROWN LUCERNE HAY. This is made either accidentally or by design. Sometimes, when it is intended that dry green hay should be made, it is stacked whilst containing slightly too much mois ture,' and the changes in the stack result in a brown hay being formed. This is claimed by some to have certain advantages over dry green 'hay. It is more succulent, freer from dust, and stock, in some cases, show a decided preference for it. Generally speaking, the price ob tained is slightly lower than that for prime green hay, but when the sample is good_ the difference is not very marked. Probably brown hay would be more largely made, especially for dairy cows, were it not for the greater risk of loss by firing. The methods of cutting and curing are the same as in making green hay, except that the hay is not allowed to become so dry in the field. Brown hay is caused by certain fermentative and other changes which take place in the stack, and one of the essentials of these is moisture. They can o...

HARD MILKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

HARD MILKERS. ' One of the trials of the dairy herd is the presence of hard milkers, which waste time, weary muscles, and dishearten beginners. Sfr. James Weir, an East Middlesex 1 (Ontario) cheese factory patron, always on the alert for improve ments in practice, has made a couple of hard milkers easy by a very sim ple method, which he passes on to other readers, who may be similarly troubled. 'He tried it first on an old cow that for years had been a " tough one"^to milk, and then on a ( valuable heifer that he was inclined to part with for the same reason. ; The trouble he found just at the orifice of the teat, the hole being so small as to let through only a very fine stream of milk. The problem was, how to make it larger > without causing some other injury? : Grasping the teat firmly with one - hand, he pressed the point of a ; sharp, small penknife blade intc . the opening, making a slight incision : quickly in one side. Often there are just two teats to treat, as the : for...

PROTECTING SEEDS FROM BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

PROTECTING SEEDS BIRDS. Some time ago one of our readers asked for particulars as to certain preparation for dressing seed as a protection against birds. We are making inquiries, and if successful will' again refer to the subject. Meantime, experiments have been conducted lately by the German Imperial Biological Institute with a view to ascertain the degree to which seed'can be protected from the attacks of birds, particularly rooks, by dressing it so as to give it an unusual colour, or an objection able taste or . smell. The colours used were blue, red and green, and the following proportions were found most effective For every ioo parts by: weight of seed 0.2 part of glue dissolved in 8 parts of water, >vith 2 parts of red colour, or from 0.5 to 1 part of Russian blue, or 0.4 part of aniline green. The colour dressing did not affect the germinating capacity of the . seed. For the purpose of imparting a flavour to the seed,, powdered alum, Glauber's salt, a preparation called Fi...

DIVORCE PETITIONS. HUSBANDS AND WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

DIVORCE PETITIONS. HUSBANDS AND WIVES. Statistics are notoriously fallacious. They do not give up their true secret ex cept for a careful comparative analysis and large study of conditions. Here, for example, the "Law Journal" points out, In the Divorce list with which the new term opens, are 240 petitions for disso lution of -marriage ; 142 of these are by husbands, 98 by wives—In other words, the petitions by husbands are halt as numerous again as petitions by wtv«e. At the first blush we cxciaim, "Why, then husban.1s are better—more virtuous —than wives; for two aggrieved wives there are three aggrieved husbands!" Yet haw erroneous the Inference would be! | LITTLE VARIATION.' ' It )s much easier, In the first place, for a husband to get a divorce than for a wife to do so. The husband has, as everyone knows, only to prove adultery; the wife has to prove adultery coupled with cruelty or desertion—a very differ ent and much more difficult task. But a stronger reason for wives' petit...

CHRISTMAS SUPERSTITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

CHRISTMAS SUPERSTITIONS. It is deemed unlucky by the Arabs of Aden to receive an ulster at Christmas. The Esquimaux are unusually su perstitious at the holiday season. Even by the smallest child an auto mobile will not be accepted as a Christmas gift. It is said that in the last 250 years there is no re corded exception to this rule. Before eating his Christmas candle, a Laplander always blows it out. Among the happy Hottentots Santa Claus takes the form of a shark that stands on' one leg an-d barks like a dog. The origin of this superstition is lost in antiquity. Christmas trees are shunned by the natives along the Amazon, particu larly those of the candle-bearing va riety. A dread of forest fires is sup posed to be at the bottom of this be lief. The inhabitants of Venezuela be lieve it to be very unlucky to start a revolution during Christmas week. On the contrary, .January 1 is re garded as an excellent date to turn over a new Government. — Puck. Music Hath Not All the Charms.— Y...

FARM AND FIELD, Canada and Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

flElP, | Canada and Australia. An Australian who has settled down In California having noticed the com parisons made between Australia and Canada, has given his experience to the "Sydney Mail." Here is what he has written:—"It is a. pity that every Aus tralian fanner who is dissatisfied with j his iot could not visit Canada and the northern and eastern States of America during the long winter season from Oc tober up to the end of March. He might then realise how blessed he Is to live in a land of almost perpetual sunshine, where one oan remain out of doors day and night every month In the year with out loss of life or limbs through freez ing; and where he does not have to house and hand feed his live stock for many long weary months, and where the hours of labor on farms are one-third per diem less than they are in America.

Destroying Sorrell. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

Destroying Sorrell. Sorrell is very plentiful in some of the oldest settled districts. Coming into seed just now these fields are red from end to end. It is a great mistake to permit sorrell to make such headway, ' because when well established its eradi cation becomes a difficult matter. It is a | most formidable enemy to attack at any time, as it can always offer a stout ' resistance to any effect designed for its destruction. It is generally agreed, i however, that there are several tan ] gible advantages to be gained by essay ing the ceaseless combat in the summer ' and autumn as compared with the spring. It is not to be assumed that autumn weeding will entirely obviate the desirability or necessity of a re newed effort in spring, but it is evident that if the earlier effort is prosecuted with success there will be less urgency for the latter, which will be lighter and simpler to accomplish in proportion to I the efficiency of the autumn work An other point of favor is cultivati...

HIDES, SKINS AND TALLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

HIDES, SKINS AND TALLOW. The business of a hide, skin and tallow merchant does not, on the face of it, seem to offer anything to interest one, yet, as a matter of actual fact, a visit to the store of Messrs.' Funck, Stark & Co., Har bour Street, Sydney, provides much food for thought, as well as being genuinely interesting and instruc tive. To see in their primeval state what are ultimately transformed into articles of clothing and toilet is, when considered in conjunction with the various processes which science has evolved for their treatment, in the highest degree educational. But it is necessary if the best results are to be obtained that the articles be carefully treated: in order to secure that on arrivar at. the various fac tories, of the continent they will be in the maximum condition of pre paredness for the subsequent pro cesses they have to undergo. To this end Messrs. Funck, Stark and Co. have gone to a lot of trouble and spared no expense in order to give comple...

The London correspondent of the "Echo de Paris" turns to account tome curiosities of the billeting of ;he Parisians on their London col leagues, which, he says, has produced tome piquant meetings.

TRANSFORMATION OF LONDON. i.ethester square. In dealing with the transformation o£ London, Mr E. L. Tyler, in the current "Home Counties Magazine," points out that among the most ancient quarters of the metropolis none is richer fn histo rical and literary associations than the district round Leicester Square.

Stick to a Good Thing, [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

Stick to a Good Thing, | Some farmers never seem to know' . when they have a good thing. "Away . off yonder," to their way of think ing, is a vastly better country than the one they are living in. Pure bred I stock may be very good, they say, but | it pays to mix around a little. Farm ing is slow and they hanker to get "into business!" With these ideas dancing in their minds they are constantly making changes that rarely turn out well. If they would carefully consider the cer ' tain and probable results of such' ' changes before making them but very few would be made. | A hustling farmer acquaintance of ' mine, who was doing very well on a 1 good farm, and whom everybody regar 1 ded as a permanent resident of the lo cality, suddenly got it into his head that he could do much better in a northern , State. As one of his neighbors said, | "He suddenly became daffy and went all to pieces!" Instead of carrying his operations of that season to a successful ' issue, as he had done in previ...

BACON FOR EXPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910

BACON FOH EXPORT. Mr R. W. Davidson, a member of the well-known firm of London importers of that name, has written a long letter to Mr George Stewart, chairman of the Colac Dairying Company, on the pres pects of an export trade of bacon with Great Britain. The following is an ex tract from his letter:— "To begin with, you can rely on an unlimited outlet, as the supplies from America are steadily falling off, whilst the demand keeps Increasing all the time.
