QUEENSLAND'S PEARLING GROUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 January 1915

QUEENS,?AD'S PEARLING GROUNDS. The pearl fisheries of Northern Aus tralia are the most lucrative and the least understood of the world's fisheries. The pearling grounds, as they are termed locally, extend along .the north-east and northern coasts of Queensland. In years gone by, diving was mostly carried on by naked divers in comparatively shal low waters, but the use of the diving dress is now, almost universal. The profits of pearling are enormous. The wages of the divers range from £1 to £2 per month, and a "lay" of £20 on each ton of shell lifted. The diver's' tender is paid £4 per, month, and the four members of the crew, 30/ to £2 10/. per month. These are the wages the men sign articles at. but cbmparatively little money is paid, as the crews more often than not "cut out" their rages. in "slop chest," viz., goods purchased from the master-pearler, 'who makes more than 150 per cent. clear profit. from this part of the business alone. The pearling boats are' worked from a schoo...

MARRIAGE CUSTOMS IN HOLLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 January 1915

SHOLLAND. -------+--- A curious old custom still exists, in many provinces of Holland. If a young man is in love with a girl, and wishes to ask her hand in mar riage, he, goes about it in the follow ing manner. He buys a small sweet cake, and, wrapping it up in soft paper, proceeds to the house of his inamorata; upon his arrival, he is ushered into the midst of the family circle; without a word, he walks up to the young lady he wishes to make his wife, and lays the cake on the table before her. The rest of the family affect not to notice anything unusual, and continue their work, or their reading. The young man turns aside and talks to the father or mother on some very ordinary sub ject, keeping his eyes eagerly fixed on the girl's face while he is conversing. If she accepts his offer, she takes up the cake and eats it. .Sometimes. though Dutch, she is coquettish, and tortures the young man by .turning it over and playing with it, before she decides to bite it, and then en raptures ...

THE HUNGARIAN GENTLEMAN FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 9 January 1915

iHE HUNGARIAN GENTLEMIAN' FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. Writing on. "The Hungarian Gen tleman Farmer," in the "' Windsor," Baroness Orczy says: "He is the most contented indivi dual in the world, in spite of the fact, or because he knows absolutely nothing of what is going on around him. He does just read his news paper which arrives daily from Bu da-Pesth, and has vague ideas that all Austrians are thieves . and scoun drels, and that therefore a union with Austria is necessarily fatal to Hungary; but, as a matter of fact, the political situation of his country does not interest him in the least; it does not affect the richness of his wheat or the weight of his maize heads. "A keen sportsman, he is unham pered by any game laws. In Hun gary no one is allowed to carry a gun unless he owns so much land, and the ciwner of land-and therefore of game-naturally makes his own laws' for its preservation. "His chief characteristic is hospi tality, almost barbaric in its lavi...

Sunday Corner. God's Giving. God.does not dole out help by little gi ains. He pours out bles sings until there is no more room to receive. He gives until our empti ness is altogether filled. He is never done giving when you cease *receiving-he could give far more. Nothing limits the supplies we get Sfrom God save our capacity to take. :He would give infinitely if we had ,.room to receive infinitely, and the only reason we are not supplied in *this:glorous:way, according to God's riches,,is because we will not take all that God would give. The only Sthing -that stands in the way of our ... being blessed to the full is the ,smallness of our faith.

Presently they came together, and although many pairs of eyes were watching them, they kissed. They seemed perfectly happy, but only for a few short seconds. A big man swaggered towards them. His face wore a determined frown. Raising- the stick he carried he struck one sharp blow. Oh, the pale one was sent spinning away. There was no crying; no grief at . th. parting. Nobody fainted.. Nothing happened. You see billiard balls are used to that kind of thing.

THE KITCHEN GARDEN. JANUARY. Th;s is the month when frequent attention must be given to young crops :of Cabbages, Cauliflowers, and others of the genus; also Cucumbers, LEet tuces, and Celery,. which should never be allowed to have their growth checked through deficiency of moisture. Some of the earlier crops will have been exhausted before this time, when the ground should be cleared and'prepared for a succession of digging, trenching, and manuring. as may be required. It is not advisable to dig the manure deeply into the soil, the usual way being to spread it on the surface, and fork in lightly.- The digging fork should be used in place of the spade wherever the soil is of such a nature that it can be used effectively; hoeing should adso be freely practised during -the dry weather, not only to destroy weeds. but also to maintain a loose sur. face, thus lessening the evaporation ,r moisture.. - - Herbs for drying should be cut when in flower, hung in bunches, and dried in the shade...

They are picked .n and placed in a large heap either in the orchard or at the cider mill, and are allowed to lie a few days to com plete the ripening process, in which the Starch is converted into sugar,.and if any are found bruised or rotten put them in a heap by themselves for an inferior cider to make vinegar. They are then. rasped ,r ground into pulp. If the weather is :ool and the apples are not quite ripe, it Is better to let the pulp remain in the vat a few days before pressing out the juice. rhis gives the cider a higher colour, makes it sweeter, and of better flavour. The process of pressing is simple, but re quires some skill. Four boards about six inches wide are nailed together in a square, the size it is desired to make the cheese, say from four to five feet.
