HOME GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 January 1925

EM E GARDENING, N ly "H-leather Jock." Not for many years has the home gardener found climatic conditions so favourable. No amount of hose water ing gives the same effect as the natu ral rain, and if one surface tilled well after the rains this season the hose has practically not b)een require(l. Temlperatures also have been gracious so far, and considering the luxuriant growth that exists. this has been most acceptable. We have only had onei clay that has clone much damage. The conditions have been such that many seeds which usually require to be raised under shade or glass have de velopled well in the olen hbed. I have both cineraria and primula which have inerminated and succeeded in the open border. The plants of these should now be fit to prick of11f; in do ing so artificial shade must be em ployed until they get established. Stocks shoult also be ready for prick ing' off. In doing so give the seed lings plenty of room in a good sunny l;osition, and don't overwater them, and yo...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 January 1925

If a little salt is sprinkled In the bottom of a frying-pan the fat will not splash over the store. To cut butter in small even squares for the table, use a coarse, wet thread, as this leaven no ragged edges, Rub discoloured kolfe handles with sand paper. This whitens them beau. tlfully. A spoonful of methylated spirit. added to the rinsing water gives a silk-blouse that delightfully glossy look. When boiling meat. which is In. clined to be tough, add one teaspoon ful of vinegar. This makes it tender, and gives a good flavour. When no suet is at hand, and a little is required for puddings, chop some dripping finely and use. It will answer the purpose quite well. Milk will never burn If. before h!ºat ing, a little c:old water is put into the saucepan and brought to the boll. Then heat the milk in the usual way.

MATTERS FEMININE. THE PRICE OF A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 January 1925

MIATTERS FEMIN INE. ---:o3- THE PRICE OF A WIFE. In some parts of the globe the most curious customs prevail with regard to marriage. In Uganda the custom is to offer six needles and a pack of Indlarubber for a wife. The Kafflrs sacrifice oxen on marriage. The Tartars of Turkestan give the weight of the prospective wife in butter. In Kamskatcha the price varies from one to ten reindeer. Some savages require a certain amount of labour. A COMMON ERROR. One of the most pitiful errors the modern girl is apt to fall into is the lack of courtesy to those in her own family circle. Only too readily (1do phrases rise to her lips ;uch as: "I needn't tidy my hair; it's only father come home." or "\What does it matter how I look. there's nobody in the houlse but mother and tlhe boys,'' or.

ST. ALBANS NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 January 1925

ST. ALBANS NEWS Through a mnisunderstanding over the telephone it was made to appear in this column last week that the Keiior council was too poor to afford the task of financing the laying on of e!ectric current to St. Albans. To the best of the writer's knowledge the council has not been approached in regard to the scheme, and as the in terest on the capital so invested would only he charged against this riding it would thus further deplete the amount spent on roads and other im provements. On Tuesday evening, February 10, the annual meeting in connection with the St. Albans Mechanics' Hall and Library will be held in the hall at 8 p.m. it is to be hoped there will be a good attendance of the public, and tihus; ensure the election of a strong and energetic committee for the next twelve months.

THE HOME GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 January 1925

THE HOME GARDEN By "Heather Jock." }Few plants show such beautiful bloom as the hydrangea when pro perly managed. It is not of the easiest cultivation to get really good results, yet when one knows their pe culiarities and follows closely their re quirements it is quite easy to get a wealth of, bloom, which lasts for a long time provided moisture and shade be given. Of recent years many new introductions have been made to this class of plants, some of which are a decided improvement on the old varie ties. They are all plants, with the exception of one variety, which re quire a shady position, more particu larly when they come into flower. If this can he provided they may he grown in a.ny garden. They are, how ever, more suited to he treated as pot plants, as they require, if good results are to be obtained, a good rest each year, which cannot always be too well managed if grown in the border, un less they have a border to themselves. They are easily propagated from cuttings, which s...

Badly Trained Hurdle Racers [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 January 1925

Badly Trained Hurdle Racers The number of hurdle racers who squib it at the last two or three hurdles seems to indicate that train ing methods for horses over the little sticks are not all they should be. The pace at which hurdle races are run nowadays tries out the staunchest of them, yet we read morning after morning that two and three mile hurdlers are being primed up to their task over two flights of battens, and, perhaps, six furlongs or so. The only, real distance practice they get is in an actual race, and then with the pace on faster than they relish they get no practice on at all. The old school of hurdle race trainers certainly had their horses trained to stay and race the full distance, even if they did not go anything like as fast as theydo at present. .

SUNSHINE PROGRESS ASSOCIATION [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 January 1925

SUNSHINE PROGRESS ASSOCIATION At a meeting of the Sunshine Pro gress Association held on Wednesday evening a move was made in the direc tion of restarting the agitation for the alteration of Sunshine from the status it at present occupies as a portion of Braybrook shire, by which it will be proclaimed a borough. According to members .the proclamation of Sun shine as a borough will remove a number of the difficulties that the ratepayers now suffer from, appar ently from the populous part of k;iy town, known as the Railway Ridii? not being adequately represented. At least this was the statement put forth at the meeting, which decided to take action at once in the direction named. and a special committee was appoin ted to collect the necessary informa tion and call a public meeting at an early date if possible. It was stated that it was not unlikely Sunshine would reach the status of a town be fore the year closed,; in which case, of course, the Minister would be asked to proclaim a to...

REFLECTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 31 January 1925

REFLECTIONS By GASPER SENR. "I observe," said MIr. O'Shannassy to Mr. McLennan, "that Australia has been celebrating its national holiday this week. It seems a usual course tu have a birthday now and again, but I draw the line at too many of those glorifications. About all that Australia can do on its birthday is to take a day off work. The Prime 'linister recites a little story at the A.N.A. shivoo. but there's a lack of sparkle in the proceedings generally, ,imply because there's nothing doing from the Australian point of view. And there isn't likely to be. We have an assortment of imported national holidayvs. all named after a patron saint. but we have no local saint to name our national day after. It isn't that we are short of saints, Sandy; indeed, we have a luxurious crop of the same, but they all lack the neces sary halo of time. mysticism or ex treme sanctity, whichever it may be that makes a national saint. In Ame rica they found the same trouble. until they made it a natio...
