LUBRICATING AXLES. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 8 October 1914

LUBRICATING AXLES. Oil to axles is best governed by the rule of "littlo and often" (writes Canadian contemporary.) If too much is used it exudes at the ends) gathers dust, and thus tl.e lessening of the friction is not so great, while oil being ,wasted. In nearly every case where 'the lubricant is wasted it is stuff not fit to be used, for a goo-a lubricant costs enough to keep the o.verage man from allowing it to waste. Oil that "gums" much is unfit to be used. Castor oil is a splendid lubri "-jil. for axles, but used alone may gum too much. This is corrected by the addition of kerosene or lard. Some waggons are yet made unprovided with metal shields or "thimbles,"' being banded with steel ; for theso some tal low may be used, as it is ono of the lust lubricants when iron and wood are brought in contact. Pine-tar is a ' good addition to the lubricant for wag gon axles and is a part of most of the "axlo greases" sold, Plumbago -an.ath-8r_.Koed addition; its fine par ticles'fill tlio...

THE CARE OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 8 October 1914

THE CARE OF MlLiv. Milk is tho most suscoptibia of all human foods to various changes, whien render it unsuitable i'or use, either on account of bad odours, Or * ''-'—v.rs, souring, or other bacterial changes. Tho care of milk so as to prevent uioso undesirable. happenings is, therefore, one of the. most important parts ot . daily science. In til® present discus sion, however, it is impossible to go fato. this in any . detail, and it is un necessary to do so on account of. tho fact that tho subject of practical dairy ing is really a technical one by itsolf, find file average farmer is through with tho dairy business as soon as tho milk is produced. At any rate, ho is chiefly interested in its production rather than its manufacture into a finished food product. One point in tho care of . milk which particularly concerns the farmer relates to its pre servation in a wholesome condition un til delivery to the creamery, or to pat rons.

EUROPEAN WAR ALLIES STEADILY ADVANCING. RUSSIANS STILL PROGRESSING. IN FRANCE, [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 8 October 1914

EUROPEAN WAR ALLIES STEADILY ADVANCING. RUSSIANS STILL PROGRESSING. IN FRANCE, there is almost continuous fighting along the whole frcnt, but the daily news to hand continues satisfactory to the Allies. Since the Germans were driven back from Paris a month ago the British^and French troops have been gradually advancing—slowly but surely —on the left and ring wings. The Allies hold a good position on the left, and are |gradually rolling the enemy back. Fierce and repeated counter attacks have been made by the Germans, but on every occasion these have been re pulsed, heavy losses being sustained by those attacking. These counter attacks are becoming less fierce, and the Allies are now resuming the offensive at many points, and they are gaining ground If this can be continued the enemy will be comptlled to retire from the strong positions which they have taken uo in the centre, otherwise they will be cut off. The loss of German officers has been very heavy. It is reported that the comm...

BUTTER-MILK FOR CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 8 October 1914

BUTTER-MILK FOR CALVES. "Noticing a. reference to this ques tion," a correspondent writes, "and as wo have hud some experience feeding butter milk will toll you how we use it. Wo havo raised two good heifer calves on it, ami the dairy maid who told us about it said she had raised fifteen, all on butter milk. We i"-ok the calf away from tho cow when it was thrco days old, and taught ii. to drink from a bucket. Fed it on the whole milk fresh from tho cow until it was twelve days old. We began to churn then, changed to fresh butter milk, using about the same amount as wo did of tho sweet milk and putting in enough water to make it about as warm as fresh milk. If the calf bus scours, as the first we raised -did some times, wo feed a handful of flour in a. pint or two of water. "When the calf was a month old wo gave it a little wheat, bran and maize meal in tho bucket after feed ing ; later gave some lucerne hay. Did not u-'o much hay as both calves had good grazing.

SHOW NIGHT CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 8 October 1914

SHOW NIGHT CONCERT. I Boort will have one of its biggest, if nat the biggest, crowds of the spending public present to-day. The tennis club has, with commendable foresight, took advantage cf this, and will hold a grand concert in the Mechanics' Hall this evening. This club has of late been to considerable amount of expense in erecting a couple of new courts. These courts adjoin the bowling green, and, besides being a source of enjoyment to players, they are a big asset as regards the appearance of the town. Taking these facts, together with the quality ot the programme to be dispensed, into consideration, the club should have good patronage, and, from the pro ceeds, show a balance on the right side of the ledger. The first part of the en tertainment wiil be rendered by the Wedderburn Male Choral Society, and the second portion by visiting and local talent, all the participsnts are per- j formers of no low degree, a3 the sppen ded programme indicates Plantation melody, "The old banjo...

THE FRENCH FORTRESSES. A STRONG FRONTIER. HEIGHTS CROWNED WITH GUNS [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 8 October 1914

mil FKENC'H FORTRESSES. A STRONG FRONTIER. HEIGHT CROWNED WITH GUNS All instructive and interesting de scription or tne Franco-German fron tier and the strongly fortified positions on its French side, was given by Mr. Demetrius C. Boulger in the Con temporary Review, in an article writ ten some" time ago. The strength of these forts; compared with those on the Belgian "frontier, explains the German purpose in invading France through Belgium. There is no other frontier in the world that in. any way resembles that which extends for 310 kilometres, or about 212 English miles, from, say, the Swiss district of Porrentruy to the ruins of the once famous Abbey of Orval in Belgium, says Mrs. Boul ger. At a short and varying distance from an arbitrary line, drawn without symmetry and in recgless disregard of even local convenience by an intolerant victor in 1S71, France lias construct ed with immenso patience and at an enormous cost in 30 years a. fortified barrier behind which she hoped to ...

CURIOUS EXPRESSIONS. ORIGIN AND SIGNIFICANCE. Modern conversation is plentifully besprinkled with, expressions and phrar ses, the origin and earlier significance of which, it is safe to assert, .are! known to few of their users. Many of these expressions date back to very : early times, when/some quaint village' custom or country fair gave riso to' sayings which long survived. their .lit-' eral significance and are now meta phorically used for the conveyance--of; certain ideas and'meanings,'•'*?> AN OLD CUSTjOM. ■ A typical example is the saying, "to let the cat out of the bag."

One pig only was ox posed to view, all the others being supposed to be tied up in a bag ready for carrying away. If perchance' a purchaser insisted on untying the .sack before jlaying for it the cat leapt out, and the fraud was then discover? ed. As to the other victims, who had taken theirs on trust, thev...
