Officers who have reached Buda Pest from the Carpa thians tell of the awful sufferings of their men. and speak in despairing tones of the [Russian descent on Hun gary. Against great odds, but un der splendid leadership, the tFrench in Alsace fought their way to victory at Steinbach. In its final "stage the battle raged without cessation from noon till late in the night. Amer ica is willing to meet Britain in the •matter of contraband cargo to the extent of certifying to the contents of ships leaving her shores. Despite that they, were vastly su perior numerically, the adoption of German tactics brought only a de bacle to the Turkish Armv in Cau casus.

BUTTER AND CHEESE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 9 January 1915

| BUTTER AND CHEESE-MAKING. Success on the butter or checse ' making depends very largely upon ' producing the milk under the best 1 conditions, so that the beneficial species of bacteria will predominate 1 in the milk. The milk must then be I treated in such a manner . that the ' right kinds of ferments natnrallj pre ; sent in milk will be encouraged to de ! velop. Thin creams ripens quicker ! than thick, therefore, have the cream j a little thinner in summer than in winter. During the summer churning takes place frequently, and it is essential to have the cream properly ripened. The nature of the butter will depend to some extent upon the state of the cream at the time of churning. In summer be careful to get the cream ! cooled to a suitable temperature. Tf ; it is too warm when churned the : butter will be sticky and oily in fla , vour. Butter which is too warm nnd [ soft adheres to the worker, and c^n ' not be properly worked.

They state that the proportion of parents in Australia who do not apply for the £5 is now very small. In 1912-13 the sum of £412,375 was expended in bonuses, and the Treasury officials in framing the estimates for the next year thought that an increase of £237,625 would be sufficient to meet requirments, making the total for the year £650,000.

Seated at a table, alone, in a Lon don restaurant, sipping his morning coffee, was a young man of twenty six named Malcolm Dorsey, who now and again glanced over a few letters which he had brought from his lodg ings to read while he idled over his breakfast. Mr. Dorsey was a very impecunious gentleman who lived a good deal on his wits or on what he could borrow, and-jvho never paid any one, unless it might be restau rant-keepers who would not give him credit ; but on the strength of hav ing a small annuity left to him by his mother he managed to dre§s well and get through the world without working. Most of Dorsey's letters were in reference to applications for settlements of accounts long overdue, andi he gave a start of agreeable sur prise as he opened and glanced at the following epistle : Dea...

The race for the New South Wales j sculling championship was rowed on the i Parramatta River on Saturday after noon, between Charles Towns, the holder, and Sydney Kemp, the chal lenger. A stake of £100 went with the tide. The weather was fine, but a stiff cross-wind made the water lumpy in several parts of the course. Towns was more at home in the broken water than the challenger. It was a good race for the first mile. After that towns had it well in hand, though Kemp rowed game ly from end to end. Towns finished three lengths ahead, and could have made the gap wider, but did not bustle himself at the end. The time was 23min. 5sec. Towns was favorite at 6 to 4 on. DOM'T 2SS <S- "O" 2ES !

EFFECT Or BIG GUN FiRE. —— y - In the year 1900 I was serving in one of H.M. ships attached to the Mediterranean Fleet, says a corres pondent, when I met with the follow ing startling experience :— I was coxswain of a five-oared grig, and our duties were to attend on the range officer in charge of the rifle range at Malta, for which purpose we used to anchor every afternoon in a small creek at the entrance to Va letta Grand Harbour. This creek had forts on either side, with heavy, guns mounted on them. On this particular day we had just returned to the creek after delivering a message to one of the ships in the fleet, when the bowman whose duty it was to bend the painter on to the anchor accidently let the anchor go overboard before he had bent it on. The water at this spot was about two fathoms deep, and perfectly clear, so that we could, see the anchor quite plainlj, but having no grapnel at hand, and our boat-hooks not long enough, the bowman and I stripped to dive and secure it ...

"The things I am about to set forth here are some that may, in time to come, benefit me in great measure. Therefore, lest I forget that part which is remembered simply from words of my father, and, later, those facts that I have myself discovered, I write thife paper. And if fate decrees that I shall pass away before I carry the investigation to the end, I leave the thing in such shape that those who come' after me may take it up and regain that which should belong to our family. Therefore I shall do more than I would if I alone were to take an interest in the thing. For, as regards my own use, I could jot down a few notes, which would at any time jog my defective memory, and recall all that I might wish to remember. But if I pass to another world before the task is complete, such meagre notes would ...
