DRAINAGE FOR THE YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
DRAINAGE FOR THE YARD. In locating a cowshed care should be taken to have a gentle slope from the Bhed in at least one direction af-; fording good natural drainage to both "shed and yard. If the shed is al ready built and poorly located, grad ing and draining will do much to remedy the evil. In most cases it would take but a small amount of labour with a scraper when the ground is in suitable condition to handle to give the surface of the yard a slope from the shed sufficient to carry ofl the surplus water. Even if dirt has to be hauled in from out i side the yard to accomplish this, it will not be expensive. Tile drainage 1 alone will not be sufficient as the tramping of the cattle soon covers the surface, preventing the water from passing down the tile. Thirty years ago the cream scpara-' tor did not exist, and now more than two million are in use throughout the world. . The average girl will find her com plexion improved by the following l weekly treatment. The last thing, at j n...

SHOULD A WOMAN OPEN HER HUSBAND'S LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
SHOULD A WOMAN OPEN HER HUSBAND'S LETTERS. Wives-especially young wires-often aave a desire to read their husband'* tetters. Their own correspondence is, perhaps, very small, an*] the pleasure >f reading letters, even :«/.; o addressed to another person, has never worn off. They are, therefore, inclined to ho ag grieved when this satisfaction is denied them. It would be well if young couples a*ould start married life with an agree* 3iont that neither is to read the other's tetters. Of course, if either, after reading & otter, ohooses. to hand it over to the >ther, well and good, but such a pro ceeding should bo the.esoeption, nol '.he rule. A letter is meant for the person tc tfbom it is addressed, and it is usuall? a breach of confidence to show it t&lt; mother person. Some married folks have the bac aabit of indiscriminately opening eacl other'u letters, and if you were to mild ly suggest to thom that such a proceed ing was objectionable, you would prob ably ...
HOW ARE GLASS BEADS MADE? [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
HOW ARE GLASS BEADS MADE? A rope-walk is connected with th« c;lass factory, a narrow gallery aboir 150 ft. long, BO situated that tin middle of it is not far from the fur naces. Two workmen seize a hug« wedge of molten glass between thei: blowpipes, and after it has been blowi hollow, tlioy gradually stretch it ou' into a long, swinging rope, hollow ii the centre.

This final heating is done in a skHIej over a hot fire, to round tho edges anc ^ive the beads a globular form. Whci bool they are placed in sieves, the sane and asliee drop out of the holes, anc the beads are ready to be sorted ac cording to size.

WHY KEEP POOR COWS? [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
WHY KEEP POOR COWS? Only the rich can afford to keep poor cows, and they don't, and the poorer a man is the better his few cows should be if he is to make a liv ing. To see a poor man keepine poor cows is a sight to make one sigh at the short-sightedness of man. A pooi man cannot afford to waste his ranney on poor cows. Usually we hear it said that the poor man cannot afford to own good cows. This is contrary to all experience. If he can afford w own any, he can afford to own the best. "

THE ART OF MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914
THE ART OF MILKING. The art of milking is considered as being on a level with pumping water, or any other simple work, and yet there are many points needed to stamp a man as a pood milker. Too many children are allowed to attend to this important work and many chronic troubles of cheese and the cheeee factory originate right here. | A good experienced milker can soon , tell if there is something wrong with j the udder and milk, and will not al low such milk to be delivered to th° factory, but what can you expect of a child ? Cleanliness is absolutely necessary to success in the factory. I Everybody knows this and yet you can notice cows being milked that . have udders covered with dirt, main ly cansed by the swamp-like condi tion of some of the barnyards. 1 Do the milk utensils always get proper care ? Are they properly wash ed with hot water, and kept in pro per places ? Are they used exclusively for their purpose alone ? I think not, or else the collection of things of all variati...

CHAPTER XXI. POOR PAT. It was the final day of the trial of John Carvill ; the ovi&lt;lenc« had told terribly against him. His counsel had fought hard for a favourable verdict, but when the jury, loft the court even the most sanguine (eared the verdict would fo against him. As for Jack, the confinement and the suspense of the last two days had told upon him, but in spite of that lie looked a noble fellow as he entered the dock when the jury had filed into their places. In another moment the foreman had spoken. The verdict was guilty, with a recommendation to mercy, as the prisoner had received great pro vocation. "I -will see that your recommenda tion is forwarded to the Home Sec retary, but I do not see how he can act upon it. The murder was not done in the heat of passion, but was deliberately planned, and the de ceased was lured to his doom, under the pretext that he was required pro fessionally," said the judge, who then proceeded to pass sentence.

THREE HOURS UNDER WATER A youthful engineer-lieutenant, win :ias had charge of the mechanism of a Uotilla of submarines, informed a Press correspondent that the experi ments nt Barrow with the submarine ' B1' wore highly successful. This .ir.der-water warship is much lart'ei ./nan any submarine built previously. Science and experience have aided live designers of the new submarine, and enabled them to effect numerout improvements. My friend tells mf that the little ship was taken inU deep water outside Barrow Harbour. »nd that, although the manoeuvres per formed by it were by no means simple yet not the slightest hitch took place At one time she was three hours undei water, and those on board the tug boat commenced to wonder what had happened to submarine ' B1' (t.hey remembered the terrible fate of thf crew of submarine ' A1'), but she came to the surface two miles away, and those on board stated that shf could have remained below longer.
