THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 18 April 1907
THE WIDE WORLD. Largo rubies are ten times as valu able as diamonds of the same size. A runaway bull forced its way into a draper's shop in Dorking recently. The '?annual remnant sale' should have a double meaning this time. Tho pnffin nf AI-c r\f 'Woxvhnrv. was borne to the grave by her six sons. The other mourners were her huslmul aud daughter. An old woman, who was charged at Enfield Police Court with intoxication, attributed her downfall to reading novels late at night. The sovereign was first coined- in 3(120. Previous to that date the noble, value . fifteen shillings, was the most valuable British coin. We have 'ragging' at country house parties, and toys to play with after dinner.

TRAINING AND HANDLING BULLS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 18 April 1907
TRAINING AND HANDLING BULLS. Any system of training the bull must be based upon the fact that the bull Is a treacherous animal, and is never to be trusted. He njay ! be apparently mild, gentle, and obedient one hour and Che personification of— wrath, vindictiveness, and stubbornness' the^pext )iqur. More over, like all animals., he .easily learns his nnwer and ability. — that man cannot match him in ogility, or strength. It follows from these considerations that the first principle to be applied in the training and treatment of a bull is never to give him an opportunity to overpower or outwit his caretaker. To this end, commencing with him while yet a calf, teach him to lead, and never, in sport or otherwise, permit him to ? have his own way in opposition to. your will. For example, do not attempt to drive or corner, him, for if you do he will soon learn that it is quite possible to dodge, and go where he pleases, and this lesson once learned is not forgotten. While yet quite young,...

POINTS IN CURRANT AND SULTANA CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 25 April 1907
POINTS IN CURRANT AND SUL- J TANA CULTURE. In producing' a first class quality of currants and raisins, the growers at Mildura, Renmark, and other parts arp learning that two important points must be kept in view. First and most essen tial, is sample. It is only by carefully watching this that dried fruits can maintain its high place on the market. I The higher grade benefits grower and merchant alike; better prices are rea lised, and' there is a readier sale. Sec ondly, there is the question of weight. The methods by which these two can be attained run practically hand in hand, so that, given a good sample, weight naturally follows. It has been amply proved that producing a good sample does not consist in the harvest ills' operations only. The whole work of the year tells the tale, and much lies in the prunlr.g and soil culture. Given this, the picking of the fruit is the first consideration. In times past too little attention has often been given to this, and growers have been dis...
THE LADIES COLUMN. HEALTH HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 25 April 1907
THE U0SES EilUtt HEALTH HINTS. Spots on the skin are often due to the fact that the sufferer .does not eat enough vegetables. Fresh vegetables purify the biood. 1 Fat is « preventive of neuralgia, and people wiio suffer in this way, but dislike fat meat, should eat freely of thin bread well buttered. Nothing is so good for tlie complexion as milk, if you can digest it. Many, people who cannot take pure milk, find no difficulty in digesting ? it if it is slightly diluted with barley water, or if a pinch of salt is added to it. Girls who suffer from anoemia should be in (he sun as much as possible. Fresh air and sunlight will do more to cure the trouble, more.-especially if ironcontain ing foods— such as milk, eggs, oatmeal-' porridge, and lentils— are taken in addi tion. The majority of people who suffer in this way take far too much cake, pas try, and other sweet dishes. ? Tight-lacing is a frequent cause of acne, and pre-disposes a girl who con stantly indulges in it to constipatio...

UTILITY OF HUMUS AS A SOIL FACTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 25 April 1907
UTILITY OF HUMUS AS A SOIL FACTtiR. ' I wish,' I might assure you at the oi^tset, writes Mr. A. D. Selby in the ' Prairie Farmer,' ' that we know all - thte good offices of humus, and can raca l' sure and set forth their effects. The fact is we do not know certainly in how many ? ways humus may act favorably. Never j \ theless, there are several ways In which ' it acts. The one foremost consideration ,? in most minds, based upon chemical and ' manurial composition,, is that with its de cay the vegetable matter, gives up for use its elements of plant food. . While this stands and is undisputed, humus must do a great deal more than this. It must change not only the chemical fac tors but the physical ones as well. ..The moisture relations of the soil are powerfully transformed by humus. The ' interstitial layers of humus in the soil, must intercept the capillary tubes which forms to conduct soil moisture to the sur face, and there are still other effects. Humus-rich, arable soils may a...

SELECTION OF BREEDING , STOCK. There has been much written on the subject of the selection of breeding stock in various papers devoted to poultry keepers' interests. , AVe are . sometimes . afilaid (says an lingllsh' exchange) that ' mJie harm is done by these articles than is realised bv those who publish them, because in, many instances they are written for fanciers, and breeders of ex hibition birds, whereas the readers aie amateur poultry-keepers, who are keep ing, a few fowls for utility purposes, or, at least, the majorty of them are. -- '.'We have recently seen a number of articles on tho subject: of 'line breed ing,' .1 this being the definition used to indicate the production of a certain type of bird by continually breeding from re-, lated' stock in order to more kuickly rea lise one's ideal bird. .
