OIL PAINT ON CEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
OIL PAINT ON CEMENT. There is some dificulty in making paint adhere to cement, but if the ce ment is first washed with one per cent. sulphuric acid (one part concentrated acid to one hundred of water), rinsed and allowed to dry thoroughly, the paint will find the surface suitably prepared for adhesion. Or the cement may be covered with three coats of water-glass (silicate of soda), one part to four of water, and then painted. A first coat of'linseed oil varnish followed by the usual paint is effective.
OFFICIAL MANURE TESTS. A SCIENTIFIC ANALYSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915

Renard, author of " A E C of Rational Manuring," "A B C of Scientific Stock Feeding," etc. SHereunder are the latest published official results of tests made by the Vic torian Agricultural Department with superphosphate on the wheat crop: Quantity Yield Cost of Value of per Acre. Bush. Manure. Crops. Profit.

Thus the cwt. dressing gave an increase of 5.4 bushels for 2/3, equals bd. per bushel cost of manure; Slewt. gave 7.4 bushels for 4/6, equals 71d. cost per bushel; 2cwt. gave 8.1 bushels for 9/-, equals 183d. cost per bushel. These costs have the highest significance for farmers because they ac curately reveal the working of the re cognised economic "law of diminishing returns" in agriculture.

SWho wast Guilty?] CHAPTER II.-(Continued) Murray did not see Mademoiselle Taschereau until the next evening. He looked keenly at her as she came out of the theatre, but he could detect 'n difference in her manner. She accepted his arm;, and they wandered away as usual, and for the moment the young fellow forgot the ring and all that he had overheard the previous evening. His spirits, naturally gay, rose as they strolled along. He was smoking a cigar, ana his companion, her hand lightly resting' on his arm, was engages in her usual task of trying to extract from him' all he could tell her as to his antecedents. She did not find him as comnmunica-. tive as she could have wished. "The pater lives in France," he said. "But why dwell on such pro saic subjects as.fathers and mundane relationships? You mademoiselle, never had human relationships, or were scolded and slapped 'for bding naughty. You were evolved fromn some sphere beyond our earthly ken, and alighted complete on this base ea...

District News. (From Correspondents). BUNCENDORE. ODDFELLOWS' BALL. The Oddfellows' Annual Ball, held in the Federal Hall on Friday night last, was indeed a brilliant success, both in point of numbers, in perfec tion of arrangements, splendid music and perfect weather. The Spacious hall was taxed to the utmost and sup per served in many relays before all had partaken of the very excellent repast. Too much praise cannot be bestowed upon the ladies' committee for the untiring energy and attention they gave to the many details neces sary in the carrying out of such an important function, yet not a hitch occurred. The best of good humour prevailed on all sides; everyone was bappy, and all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The attendance num bered 158 couples. The ladies dresses were unusually' gay and beautiful as will be seen by the. subjoined list. The music, which was excellent, was supplied by Miss Ray McKie (piano), Mr. Herb.

EXTINGUISHING A CANDLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 1 June 1915
EXTINGUISHING A CANDLE. An ingenious method of extinguishing a candle when it burns down to a certain point is worked as follows: Tie a string around the candle at the desired point, then take the string through the usual loop support or ring at the base of the candlestick, then pass it up to a pair of pulleys on ceiling or wall, bring down the end of the cord just above the candle and tie on a light extinguisher, which thus hangs over the candle. Nails or hooks can'boe used instead 'of pulleys for the cord. When the candle burns down to the string, this is detached and lets the extinguisher drop upoli the candle. The zdovice should, of course, be tried' to make' sure that-the-cord works easily in the diffe ent supports.

Throughout the duamp, cold winter, on Sunday mornings, the well loved, benevolent-looking face and beot form of this aged clergyman were watched for, but in vain, by the poor people that filled his old gray church. But he came inot-would never come again to tell them in plain, simple language of the land where all are equals, and-where there are no hard times. It had been a happy winter to this aged disciple. He had seen-some of his people daily in his rooms,- which had been 'kept bright and warm by the willinghandsof his attached servants, who well knew that such a kind master would not easily be found again. And since his eighty-first birthday, when old age had begun to assert its mastery, a bright-faced, active, little woman, with a prim lace-trimmed cap, tied in a -dainty. bow unde...
