WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. (By "Amubrcsine.") A refresh:ng night's sleep is almost an impossibility if the bed has been carele.s:y cr improperly made, and one rises in the morniu:g unfit for the day's dut.es, no matter what form the occu pation takes. To a tired worker it Is an absol,te luxury to lie on a cool, comfortable bed, with jus: the correct amount (.f -lo.lh ng, and each artilco properly arranged. To e;.sure a good night's rest the bcd must be stripped of all covering; the shce s and blankets being spread one at a time over a couple of chairs, and the pillows being shaken and plac ed where plenty of air can pass over them. The window should be left open, and the bed not made for at leash an hour; :hen proceed in this way :-Put on the under sheet, and turn it well under the head-quite a foot, for it is from this end !hat the strain on the !ower sheet comes, while ~he st: ain oh the clothes ever the sleeper comes from the foot of the bed.

A PICTORIAL HINT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914

A PICTORIAL HINT. On the retirement of a rich manu facturer, who Ihad been- consisten' ly s'ingy in his business career, his. work men presented him with an ,illumina ted address smartly designed by one of the number... He was obviously touched .by the gift, and. acknowledged it by a neat little speech. "But there's one thing about it, I can't quite understand," he added. "What does that little sketch in the corner represent ?" ',That's a pioture of you giving your workmen a supper," the artist ex plained. "But I never did such a :hing in my life." "I know that sir, an' 'my mates said you never would; but I thought I'd put it in, just to give you a sport ing chal'ee of proving them all wrong." The. chance was aken, and the fare well' supper was a great success.

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 July 1914

MELBOURNE LETTER. (From our Special Correspondent.) So much depends upon adeeuately paiulating t?ts country that anything w;hich bears upon the question is of vital importance. I1 ,s becoming in creasingly apparent ilhait hopes of get ting, in sufficient :.umbers, the right class of immigrants-those who will work the land-from Great Britain are fading.

Therefore, it is necessary to look elsewhere for the people we want.

PRACTICAL COW VALUES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 July 1914

PRACTICAL COW VALUES. "Nothing is clearer than that tihe successful breeder of the future will be a book-keeper and a statistician." This s atenint was made some time ago by E. Davenport, Dean of the II linois College of Agriculture. Of course he did not mean the breeder may carry on his work by noting simp ly the records of his cows, but rather :he successful breeder will keep records of his cows and use them in direct ing his breeding operations. There is the well recognised dairy form, a form that is adapted to dairy work. While a person may deter:mine from the con formna:ion "\'hl li. the aninmai is rt dairy or bcef :reeding, yet thcre is no one wh:o can determino fronm ap pearance how much work a crow can do by looking at her.

DUCK FARMING. ((By S.H.S.) There are two principal seasons when ducks may be hatched, but as a mat ter of fact they may be hatched sat isfaotorily any month of the year have set eggs overy; season and secured good results, but 1 favour the autumn and spring raonlths. It is not gener ally wise to hatch hen eggs outsme or three or four months, and those months should be in the spring, say fnom Au gust to November, whereas duck eggs can be hatched with the greatest of success during MIarch, *April, May anac June, the autumn and early spring months, and August, September, Oc tober, and November, and even De comber in the spring and early sum mer.

The Money-Lenders. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 July 1914

:The Money-Lenders. :, . . - - • CHAPTER I. : To all.outward seeming, although it afterwards turned out that one must not judge by appearances, Winnie Wil mer was severely practical; Dickie Hil ary was not. Hence what our Amer ican cousins call "the trouble"; for trouble there was of a very serious kind, and a good deal of it arose from Winnie's manlia "sitting under" the youthful Rev. Robert Lavender, who had strong views on the subject of mat rimony, So, for the matter of that. had Winnie's mamma, although, unlike the Rev. Robert, she lacked a pulpit from which to utter the:n. Briefly, the Rev. Robert Lavender had been struck by the number of un married girls in the suburban parish. The prejudices of modern society; and his own somewhat limited income, con trived to prevent himn from marrying more than one of-them. Besides, she (lid not feel that it would be fair to rob the parishioners of the stimulus of so great b prize as himnself by unduly entering into the bonds of matrimony....

WORSTED AND WOOLLEN TRADES The editor of Tt fWooL RlEGCOD makes some pertinent observations re specting the differences between thle worsted and woollen tradee.- "The writer," he remarks, "renwemers hlving learnt at school from geogrr?phy books that 'Leeds is tile cenoutre ofthe woollen trade,' and probably 90 pbr cent. of scholars in primary schools are thus taught. It is more than probable that nearer 100 per cent. of those who do not enter the trade or rise to more learned treatises in the secondary schools never learn that they have been told only a halt-trnith.

FEEDING YOUNG PIGS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 July 1914

FEEDING YOUNG PIGS Successful feeding of pigs provide one of the most difficult tasks of the farmer. If he pulls the litter through the first 2-1 hours after birth he has gone a long way towards successful rear ing. - Half of the losses among young pigs occur suan after birth, for many are laid upon unless vigilance is exer cised. A lot depends on the health of the sow prior to farrowing. Sows should not be too fat, but they should not be allowed to get too low in condi tion or they will not provide sullicient milk for their young, nor would thu young be so vigorous, consequently growth would be checked at a period when the piglets should acquire a habit of rapid growth. The sow should come in two weeks before farrowing. A good practice is to give her half a pint of castor oil in the food within a couple of days before farrowing. For a week be fore it is recommended to give her two brin mashes, and a couple of handfuls of bran in the food daily. Prior to this she should, have been i...
