WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. GAS AND BREAD MADE FROM IT American and Canadian sawmills have discovered that the sawdust which they have been perpilexed how to rid themselves of as a worthless. encumbrance is worth at least £8 per ton.

HUNTING [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 August 1914
HUNTING A most enjoyable outing was spent with the Melbourne Hounds ol Saturday, when the n.eet was at Lyndhurst railway station. T'Ihe day was perfect, and this, combined with the excellent sport rec, rded, sent all the field home in good spirit. The well-known coters owned by Mr McLeod, Mr Anderson and Mr Green were bor once blanks. Then, by means of several tricky fences, Mr Keys' ti t'ee was reached. The hounds were not idle therelong, and soan claimed their first victim, after a short run. Almost directly after this another fox " broke cover," and gave those following a gallop which was a test of the. best of horses. A southerly line was taken, and several uncom promising fences were the order before the quarry turned a little and ran straight up a hollow gum tree. which is a new experience to followers of this pack. A follower scaled the tree, and with the aid of a piece of fencing wire soon ousted the fox. Off went the hounds, following at a view, but the fugitive again took ...

THE HOUSEHOLD. KITCHEN WRINKLES. Sausages can be prevented from bursting by rolling them in flour bH fore frying. When rinsing children's clothes, add a little alum to the water, as this ret. ders them less liable to catch fire. To clean decanters, mix half a gill of vinegar with a handful of salt. Put a little in each decanter and shak: well. Rinse in clear water. Habitual numbness of the hands may be removed by rubbing them fo a short time in cold water, followed with dry fiction. To clean a watcil-chain dissolve a little sal ammonlac in wine, and p,. I the soiled gold into it. This thorough ly cleanses the go!d and makes it quite bright. It is dlificult sometimes, when using essences for cakes or sweets, etc., tt measure correctly thle number of drop: required. If a finger i.t dipped in wat er and the rim of the bottle wetted in one place, the essence will be found to drop quite easily. Cover the patient over while airing the tick-room.

It shoulld be anrried iout in fine cann bric, and at each oft the corners a small pointedl piece of the material is cut away. Three-qmimrrters of an inch froml the edge, und follow ing the outline of the ma terial. there is m r;arrow insertion of lace, and thu edge of the landkierchief itself is trinmmnd with lace to mnatch. Initials are worked in one corner, surrounded by a simple design of tiny leaves worked in various shades of green washing silk. Lace handkerchiefs are always suitable and profitable articles to pre pare for sale in a bazaar or shop; but when intended for that purpose it is as well to work a single initial only upon them, and then to choose the letters that are most comnonly required, and the initials and design round them can...
