WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 8 October 1914
WmlEN'S INTERESTS. (.By "Ambrotiine.") U is a. very good tost of success i" dressing to .review one's clothes as tlioy ail hang together. IS trip them of their nice white, or chintz, bags, look at them as tnoy uung.suoulder to shoulder, and judge whether the effect bp liarmomouB. It the dresses ap pear to sulk or to look annoyed, irri tated, and even angry at the merq presence of each other, then there is something wrong. This happens when there is any attempt at mixing the classes. All dresses, no matter how simple or how grand, should be ol the same class; then the woman who wears them presents a perfectly even, harmonious appearance to the world. A morning tailor-made should speak tlio samo jargon as a "dress" tailor made; a simple dinner frock should be on intiumte terms with the finest court gown over made when tliey have to live in the same wardrobe. But a simpio morning tailor-made will feel dreadfully out of place if it is sudden ly asked to gossip with an afternoon frock wh...
MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 8 October 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER. Tliere could not well liavo been a nmcli more complete combination of ciieunistances against the ltoyal Agri cultural Society's show than that which has beset the function this year. Drought, war, firo, and storm have united to mar its success. It has; not seemed much, like show week. Tmj crowds'froin rural districts have been. small, compared to those of the iat- years that we look back upon wit-Ji a sigh. Of course, the drought is responsible for that. The war is n.it affecting the country as it is the city, where so much employment de pends upon unfettered oversea trade. It is the gaunt, arid sceptre, which is the fcurse of this otherwise favored, land, that has barred the way to* the annual pilgrimage -to the show grounds at Flomington, which is one of the chief events of the year for so many of those on the land. City business people who rely upon the lug influx of good spenders that is customary at | this season to swell the returns, are consequently lamentin...
SOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 8 October 1914
SOCKS. Two plain, purl two, It's littlo else a woman can do, But bear sons, and watch thorn grow, Till marching out of her life they go. Knit fivo, purl one, . .. I doubt df over a mother's son In war's cause hacked and cleft, Knows half tlio hurt of the woman that's left. Slip one, purl eight, There's nothing loft but to hope and wait, .And tlm seven tasks of Hercules Would count as little compared with these. Turn, slip, then tho heel, Out of sorrow comes haply weal, But fair times are far away, And there's many weep for their men to-day. Cast off, the thing's donel Many a husband and many a son Find death in hapless war, Nor ever know what they fought it for. Two plain, purl two, It's little else a woman can do, But boar sons, and watch them grow Till marching out of her life they go. -Nina Murdoch, m the bydney bun.
TWO COMMON MISTAKES iN PRUNING. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 October 1914
TWO COMMON MISTAKES iN PHONING. In pruning, as in other orchard ope rations, prouably no two man exactly agiee as to the host methods, and pro b-biy no man can give imuhble rules icr all places, varieties, and conditions, it is apparent, however, that there aro two classes or orchardists who are really maki-.g mistaires. On the one hand is tno man who prunes too lit tle, on the other, the man who prunes ] too much. : • ' Little or no pruning is advocated by tno man who wishes his trees to oegiii muting at taie earliest • pW* sioie moment. Heavy' pruning isja'd-^ vacated by the man wlio places thii "j eiupUasis on a certain form or- shape of wee. Each of these, when carried to the extreme, has in many • cases | proven disastrous. In order to properly discuss prune.g, -certain lundauiental facts must oe Kept in mmd. First, nature is not | especially interested in producing tho edibio part of the fruit, but the seed, bhe does this in order that the species v may tie perpetuated.' The f...
A SCOTCH MUSIC LESSON. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 October 1914
A SCOTCH MUSIC LESSON. A Highland piper who had a pupil to ieucU originated a method by which ho .succeeded in reducing the diliieul tie.-i of the task to a minimum, and at the same time fixed his lesson in the pupil's mind. "Here, Donald," said he, "tak' yci pipes, lad, an' gae ns a blast. "So: Verra weel blawn indeeed ; but what's a sound, Donald, wi'out some?

IS YOUR SOIL SOUR? A SIMPLE TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 October 1914
IS YOUR SOIL SOUR? A SIMPLE TEST. (By S1. D. Conner, in "Country Gen-j tleman.") ! The soil chemist can make no other test; that produces results of such great significance as a test for soil acidity. Lime in the form of carbon ate exercises such a dominant and beneficial influence' on the character of the soil, principally through correction of soil acidity, that a knowledge of its presence or absence is of prime importance in estimating the fertility of a piece of land or planning cofrect rective treatment. It is not necessary to . know how much lime there is in a given piece of land, but it iu of fundamental import ance to know the relation of the lime to the amount of ac:d present. Other tilings being favorable, -an excess of lime means success with lucerne and clover, and a soil of good general fer tility, while an excess of acid means failure with lucerne, clover and other legumes, and a soil of much less sat isfactory general fertility. fortunately, the test for soil acidity ...
HAY TEA AND YOUNG CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 October 1914
HAY TEA AMD YOUNG CALVES. "Hay lea" lia-s Hs uses aud abuses as a substitute lor milk in call-feed ing. Very often a farmer finds him self short of milk in this winter and early spring, and is loath to knock a fine calf on the head. In such a case he may resort to the okl-fashioned substitute of "hay tea." «.id if ho does so he will bo wise if lie ■car the following suggestions in lilind. '"Hav tea'* to be of much value should bo made from ''young bay," that is to say. from hav saved from grass cut on tno young side. Coarse . u d lmy does not make good bay tea. IIay with plenty of clover in it makes iho best. Then it is no use just pouring boiling water 011 the hay and ..training off. Tile hay should be ■oiled in the water until all the nutri ueiit in it is boiled out. It will I aen bo more concentrated. . i it. is as well to gradually accustom I lie calf to this new food by mixing] oijie milk with it at first, and by de-1 groes give more "hay tea" and less As the milk is reduced an...
SOUR SKIM MILK FOR CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 October 1914
! SOUR SKIM MILK FOR CALVES, j That in summer time calves do as well on sour skim milk as they do on sweet will be interesting news to many farmers who have hitherto been kept from raising calves by the expense of keeping the milk sweet in hot weather. This extensive experiment, carried . out' by the U.S. Department of Agricul ture, indicate to beri^uite,- nnaecessa -v. The calves will make- as rapid gains Oir sour skim, milk.- Iii.; winter, 'it is true, this' is not quite- so satisfactory. It chills the calves andNsome of them drink - it with great" reluctance. Very younjg calves have been'known to re fuse.it altogether. On the other hand, of'tcourse, it is much easier to keep theiinilk sweet in winter. In calling the attention of farmers to these facts, however, the Depart: ment at the sarno time emphasises an important precaution. - Unless the milk is produced and kept under clean ly conditions, it may become contami nated: with disease-producing bacteria.

COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 October 1914
COMMENTS. As tile answers indicate there are «uy_numliei: or variations in the details ot methods di'*saltJng-i>u6to,-'.,uivoca,toU ijy different makers. Some salt wot.' some salt dry, some add salt to granu lar butter, others work partially be iore adding salt, and in other particu lars, there are innumerable variations. As a rule wo believe that when salt is added to the butter wet or as brine tuo tendency is toward its more it-.., uiiiiorm distribution, toward a greater waste of sait (unless of course tlie sur plus brine is saved for use from day to day as recommended by correspond ent No. 3, a practice not without dan gers), and toward a somewhat higher moisture content. An increase in mois ture by brine or wet salting is not al ways realised, other things being equal, as Canadian investigations have indi cated, in fact Prof. Dean round in com parative experiments that "there' was not much difference in the average percentage of moisture retained in the iinishcd butter, wheth...

SALTING BUTTER. METHODS PREFERRED BY 11 AMERICAN EXPERTS. "WHAT METHOD OF SALTING BUTTER DO YOU PREFER, AND WHY?" [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 October 1914
SALTING BUTTER. METHODS PREFERRED BY 11 ' AMERICAN EXPERTS. ' •WHAT METHOD" OF SALTING' BUTTER DO YOU PREFER, . AND WHY?" First Answer.—Tlie^ butter is chum med; in granular form about the size of number sis shot. The methods used have been both wet and dry salting. I can sift one-half of the dry salt evenly over the butter in . the " churn .. and turn the churn and sift the bal ance of the salt evenly over the but ter. I use. about one ounce of salt to ono pound of butter. The bung hole | is pluggsd up and twice as much water j as salt, is put into the churn to dis solve the salt. The churn is run five revolution on the churning gear to mix the salt with the butter before working it; next is run seven revolutions on the butter working gear; and left to stand a short \ time' to let the moisture dissolve the salt. Then the working is finished by seven more revolutions in a Victor churn. Sonio churns require , more revolu tions in working the butter than the Victor. I have used the we...

TENNIS. BOORT DISTRICT ASSOCIATION. BOORT A v. BARRAPOORT. The second set of matches were played on Saturday. _ On the local courts Boort A team was at home to Barrapoort, and the former had an easy victory. It is only fair to state that the visitors are all beginners, the Barrapoort club having-only recently been formed, and probably before the end of the season they, will be giving a better exposition of the game than they did on Saturday. They were outclassed but many of the games were closely contested. We know that they are not the class of players who will be dis: couraged by defeat, but they will make an effort to become more expert at the game. . . T Gawne and H- Lampe beat NaBh and Lester Smith, 6—0, 6—2. W. Bower and Lome Smith beat . S. Challenger .and R. A. James, 6—1, 6—2. H Andrews and R J.

" In December, 1911, I was laid op with pleurisy, so serious the doctor consulted another. For three days MY TEMPERA TURE WAS 104 DEGREES. MY LIFE WAS DESPAIRED OF, bat through taking the doctor's advice I live to-day. lie advised my wife to get CLEMENTS TONIC for me, as ' there was life En that medi cine.' When he said, ' life in Clements Tonic,' they were the TRUEST WORDS HE EVER UTTERED. I would have been in my last resting place only for that grand medicine.

BOORT B v. MAR&IAL. These teams met on the Marmal ground. Although the home players had been badly beaten on the previovs Saturday by the powerful Ox team they were not dismayed, and on Satur day they played with more vim and dash, with the result that they came out victorious with a margin of 7 games to the good. We would be pleased if the secre taries of the clubs would send in the scores of their matches as soon as pos sible after they have been played. It would be accepted as a favor, as we would like to publish all the scores.
Cycling and Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 October 1914
Cycling and Motor Notes. Four well-known Australian ro.ul raoing cyclists in Messrs Don Kirkham, I. R. Monro, C Snell and W. Bell arrived back in Melbourne from Franco last week end by the Beltana. All are well but glad to get back to Australia again. Messrs Fier ce}-and Keefe, two other members of this team of riders, who went home under the auspices of the Dunlop Rubber Co., have crossed to America to take part in the track racing there. Ivirkham and Munro both rode well in many of the long distance • European road events, but the' different conditions that apply to road racing on the Continent necessitated their adopting a totally different style of riding, whicli naturally meant a big handicap when pitted against the world's best riders. However, they did sufficiently well under the con ditions to earn the praise of both the French and English cycling pres3, and the Gladiator Company, whose machines tney rode, were so well satisfied with their rid ing that they wanted them to si...

Specialist Explains Cause of Stomach Trouble. VALUABLE ADVICE TO 8 3 F FERERS. •' There are many different forms of stomach trouble," said a well known specialist recently, "but practically all are traceable to acidity and food fermentation That is why the results obtained from the use of drugs are usually so disappointing.
