THE DAIRY -t A GENUINE GET-RICH-QUICK I PROPOSITION. Superintendent Malcolm H. Gard ner, of the Holstein-Friesian Advan ced Registry of America, "has a fac ulty of saying things in a striking and unique way. Here is what he has to say regarding the disposition of puro-bred sires and tbo value of contesting associations : Not one pure blood bull out of ten that is born is needed for use in purebred herds. Sale for tl.e other nine must be found for grading up, or they must be either vealed or raised as beef steers. Breeders of Uol stehis are vitallj interested in arous ing the interest of farmer-dairymen in tbo betterment of their herd,-, and there is no present better way to ac complish this than by the organisa tion of testing associations. Under this plan an association is formed containing enough herds to give steady employment to a competent, man who remains one day at rach place, the cows owned by the mem bers of the association being avsjs sod pro rata to pay the wages of the m...

RECIPE FOR SKIM-MILK CHEESE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 3 July 1914
RECIPE FOR SKIM-MILK CHEESE The sUim-milk must be left until it i.s quite thick, tlicn well strained, which can be done by hanging it up in a clean linen bag. When drained dry add salt to taste, and rub the curds well to make them appear mealy. Stand in a warm place near a stove for a few days till they set gluey. Then put into a saucepan, and fry with fresh butter till all i.s well melted. Run into a basin, and leave to get cool. It is then ready for use. This recipe is used by many farmers' wives in Western Australia, and is well recommended. An important experimental trial was made on the L.N.W. Railway be tween FoleBhill and N'uneaton with a petrol-driven rail car. The test was a complete success, and foreshadows a revolution in railway locomotion. ; The car is 60 feet In length and is ol ; full railway carriage gauge. It runs : smoothly on two sets of bogio j wbctjla, and can be pulled up very promptly. 1315. !

In the course of their travels they happened on one of those dilapidat ed statues that certain people gape at and pretend to find beautiful.

Twenty years ago Josh had black liair ; now it was iron-grey. His fea tures had become more hawk-like ; his face, which had never worn a par ticularly pleasant expression, was now lmrsh and forbidding ; moreover, there was a crafty expression in his eyes which to a student of human nature revealed something of the man's character.

Then beforo his mind's eye there rose a vision of a rustic bench at one side of a field-path, and n pirl shabbily dressed, who listened with blushing face, but the light of joy 011 it, to his words of love. That bad been his first wooing, ? very, different from this ; then he roused himself. It seemed to him there had been a long pause, but in reality it had not oc cupied more than a minute for that picture to stamp itself on his mind. "I daresay your father told you that I had asked his permission to make you an offer of marriage," he said, in his quiet, deliberate tone.

USEFUL HINTS. Burns and Scalds.-For a flight burn or scald apply equal parts of olive oil and lime writer, and wrap the part at once in a sheet of cot toil wool, f.xing it lightly with a bandage.
