THE STRAW HAT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
THE STRAW HAT. Peoplo never think of bruthing their straw haits; the straw doesn't scent to na hat made to be brusheld, the dust lees.'t sholi on it so much, and so Sley brush all their other hats arnd t1,f their straw hats go. .it if they would brush their straw hats as they do the others tnev would keep freslh and good-looking mIlch lon ger; this is not so much on accounti of the brushing itself as because of tihe protection that brushing it, eeoop Jig it clean, gives it from the effects of Inoistuire. tWhat makes a straw hat look shabby 1 rain. If rain falls on a4 du(sty hat every drop spreads, fixes ihe dust, and makes the chapeau dingy. The same rain falling on a clean hat would have far less effoont on its appearance. ]Brush your straw had, and the ribbon toe, just as you would. any cther, and you will have the satisfaotion of keep ing it in fair condition.

WANGRABELLE July 13. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
WANGRABELLE (FnoM A COIUtESPONDENT). July 13. The weather has been very mild during the winter up to the last.few days, which have been extremely cold. The molybdenite mines are the only thing being looked forward to at present. Bridle and Allan's claim is at present being developed by a Sydney syndicate, and some very good ore is being brought to the surface. If it continues, thl pros pects for this little corner will be much brighter. In fact, some of the local people are busily engaged building new residences, and better still, a couple of our local bachelors are erecting nice cottages. The tennis players have been play ing off a tournament, which resulted in the ladies' prize being won by Miss.Em?ly Stevens, and the gentle men's prize by Mr Jack Stephens. This tournament was played on a single court and some very fine play was witnessed in the final and semi final. A double tournament is shortly to take place, which is expec ted to be rather exciting, I am sorry to state that Mr...
THE NEW WHITE PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
THE NEW WHITE PIG. It is difficult, to believe that the now famous whlio pigs which, represented by tho large variety, are found all over tlhe world, were the creation of a YOrkslure weaver but li~tle more than sixty years ago. Still more dilicu.t is it to recognise that before its appcar ance au the Rloyal in 1851 there was practically no British breed of pigs at all. It is true that there are types ~which' were bound in dlfferent. coun tries, like the early Iberkshires; but in the illodern sense of the world there ewas lno standiard, and the pig popula tion was but elnerging froml a sLa.e or barbarity, their ancestors of fitty years beforo hlavinlg beeii to a large extent kept in droves and allowed to run ld. There we were white pigs of great size in the Nortli which were slow in growth, long in body, head and legs, tlat in the s.de, coarse in thie hair, fuli of activity, prolific and hardy, but poor pra,luc,.rs of inert, which was too lean, and when ready to kill wanting li that ...

THE PIRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
THE PIRATES, This well-known comic opera was staged in the Mechanics' Hall on Tues day and Wednesday nights, the proceeds being in aid of the new Mechanics' Hall Fund. A considerable amount of work had been done by the Rev. L. M. Nan cerrow, as conductor, and members of the committee, in getting up the piece and the result was very creditable as a purely amateur effort in a way-back town. There were good audiences on each night and the efforts of the per formers were fully appreciated. From a musical point of view the performance was not anything remarkable. The choruses had been well rehearsed and went off without any apparent hitch. The accompaniments were well played by- Miss F. Cameron as pianiste and Messrs W. Ross and A. Cameron, violins. The singing of Mr Massey Herbert, in one of the leading roles, might be singled out for commendation, but otherwise the success of the piece chiefly depended on the character im personations and humcr of the libretto, Mr A. P. Mosley made a g...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosine.") We are sorry to believe that some mothers are still thoroughly imbued with the old Puritanical doctrine of "Spare the rod and spoil the child." We know of a mother who whips her little daughter severely in trying to teach her to pick up her scattered toys when she is through playing with them. For some reason known only to the childish mind, the little girl seems to have an unconquerable aver sion to picking up her things. - Every day the same contest occurs. The child refuses, and .he mother punishes her, sometimes chastising her three or tour times in the attempt to enforce obedi ence. The worst of it is, the child never does really obey, for, according to the account, the mother "will then come half way (I) and tell the child she will help her pick them up. Only with that promise will she stir an inch,' and then the mother picks up inos, of them while the baby picks up two or three. Does any sensible woman think she will train her baby to obedi...
OUR NAVAL UNIFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
OUR NAVAL UNIFORM. It is stated that, for the fixing of a uniform dress for the Navy, we are ndebted to the admirals of George 1I. Meeting one day at their club, these heroes resolved "that a. uniform dress is useful and necessary for commission ed officers, agreeable to the practice of other nations." Barrow's "Life _ of Howe" tells us that Admiral Forbes, who was deputed to convey this reso lution to the Duke of Bedford, then First Lord -f the Admiralty, on b-eing asked to choose a uniform, said, "One with red and blue, or blue and red, as these are the national colours." "No," replied his Grace, "the King has set ledo it otherwise. He saw my Duch ess riding in the Park a few days ago in a habit of blue faced with white, which took the fancy of his Majesty, and he has ordered it as the uniform of the Royal Navy." And, surely enough, in 1748 the colours of the Duchess of Bedford were sported by our naval men.
MOTOR VICTIM. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
MOTOR VICTIM. Under a spreading chestnut tree The village smithy stands; iYhe smith a lonely man is he, With large but useless hands. His trade was good in former years Ajt' shoeing horses' heels; He has not learned, it now appears, To mend the motor wheels. We know that happiness creates a void into which tears will speedily be hurled. There is one thing that can never turn into suffering, and that is the good we have done. Some folks they keep htuitin' for sor row, They sigh if they're right or they're wrong; But this day's as good as to-morrow, So I jest keep a-livin' along. I jest keep a-livin' along. I jest keep a-singin' a song; There's no use to sigh While the sun's in the sky; So I jest keep a-livin' along.
LEGUMES AS FARM CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
LEGUMES AS.FARM CROPS. (By Charles F. Cass, in "Kimball's Dairy Farmer.") Practical farmers generally notice that their cultivated orops, as maize, tobacco, or potatoes, do best when grown where a good clover sod was ploughed under. Centuries ago, the nest rarmers in Europe recognised the value of the legumes. The Greeks and Romans grew vetch and lucerne --r medica, as it was then called. Tins name, "Medica," was given to lucerne because it seemed to imnprove the soil and was such a good feed for the stock that they considered it as a medlicine. Clover was one o the main crops in the Nortollk rotation, which proved so vaiuable in the agri cultural developmenit of England in the early part of tihe eighteenth cen tury. Soy beans are natives of China and Japan, where they have been grown for centuries. There 'they are valued as food, as a soil improver, and as .feed for stock. Thus, the legumes are not, a. newly developed species of plants, but nave been grown for many years and centur...
GETTING EVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
GETTING EVEN. 'No, I don't believe in expensive practical jokes," said a San Francisco business man, ."except by way of re taliation." "Now last year I received a. telegram from a friend who was travelling in Italy. It ca.mo 'colleot' and cost me seven dollars; and when I opened it all I read was, "Tlhank you, I am well.' "Thno. I sallied forth and sought Ime out a cobble-stone---a nice, large colhle stone weighing ahlcut eleven pounds. And 1 wrapped it in excelsior, pink cmttton and white paper; and I boxed it up in a handsome box; and I sent it by express, 'colaect' to nmy face.ious friend far across the hounding billows. "And when he had paid his little fifteen dollars, and had opened ,the box in St. Petersburg, if I remeember right ly, lie fomund in addi:ion to the pre cious contents a note from me that explained, 'l'his is the load that rolled off my heart on receipt of the news of your good health.'

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
OF RURAL_ INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") This does not pertain to production, but it none nhe less deschves the a - tention of the man on the land. It tells of the art of pruning roses. On every farm there should be a garden and it should not be a wilderness. it is due to the wives and daughters that it should contain the best flowers that can be obtained, and thao, they should beo well cared-for. "`Land knows!" as Joseph Lincoln's Cape Cod charac ters would say, there is enough of the unlovely in the average life on the land to make it worth while to relieve it buy such excursions into .he regions of the aesthetic as a well-plan ei and well-tended garden 'pernmis. There can be no better embodiment of the beauty of .hings than the rose. With this much by way of apology for ,his week forsaking hard matter-of-fact subjects, we will look into the work that is of such special importance among the roses a, this particula-r period. The correct and judicious pruniiig of roses is one of the main...
SELECTING MEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
SELECTING MEATS. The art of marketing is the art of in telligent selection. In common wtll every other art it means study and attention before proficiency can be obtained, but as the heal.h and well being of the family are att stake, the question becomes a vital one, and pro per attention should be given to the subject. It surely represents as ilh poi'tant a problem as the selection of a new bonnet or gown, yet all too many wives and mothers are totally ignorant of the nicoeties of catering for the ihoun circle. 'They 'order a roast, a steak. chops or 'whatever may be, but abso lhltely have no comprehension of the fact that there is a wide difference be tween the carefully prepared ltmean from a well-fed animal, and that which has been hurried to market while tough and stringy. To learn to dis tinguish between tile. two is not diffi cult, it requires only attention; but proficiency can never be obtained by ordering over the telephone, or by sanding a message by a, butcher boy or any...
