FEAR: OF DEATH STILL HAUNTS ABUL HAMID. "SOUVENIRS" SHOW RED SUL TAN REMARKABLY INTELLI GENT BUT ALWAYS FANATICAL. (Paris Correslpondent New York 'Sun') In the mysterious recesses of his palace prison at Constatinople Abdul Hamid, the Red Sultan,., once the most feared man in the Turkish Empire, is as one dead. ' Not a word, not a sound from him has come to the out side world, and. quaint. old Stamboul so busy nowadays in modernising it self, hardly knows of his existence., Europe heard. a report some months ago of Abdul's 'death, but it turned out to be only unfounded rumor. Abdul Hamid has been in Constan tinople since the ohtbreak of the Bal kan war, when he was transferred there from Salonica. In Salonica he had lived as a prisoner since the dlay in 1909, when, he was dethroned as the result of the Young Turk revolu" tion. No one is allowed to see the former Sultan except those in his im mediate entourage, which means, of course, the personnel attached to his service. The Mayor ...

SKINNING A BEAST. Every business like farmer realiscs that the value of bides and skins to day is pretty consideraule, and tun Ioliowmg paragraph should therefore be of much interest to our readers :-. T'he flaying 'of hides of cattle and skins of sheep is not always very care fully attended to. ?Every badly-fiay ed hide or skin is a loss to the owner. There are also other points. Hides and skins should be carefully opencte up so as to make them a good shape, and as large as possible. after which the knife should be used as little as possible. Care also needs to be taken in the drying of sheep skins. The best method is to dry by hanging them in a good shed with plenty of ventilation. They should be spread out as much as possible, with the sides hanging downwards, instead of which .icy are now often stored in heaps. With regard to what is often said about drying skins in the shade, it the word "shed" mere substituted it would be better, as many hang them under trees, the drippings fr...

THROWING AWAY FAT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 August 1914

THROWING AWAY FAT. .Some farmers are queer. They think a dollar spent for Hoard's dairy man is wasted. But they will throw away nearly a pound of butter. fat a day because they do not handle their farm separator as 'it should be handled. This has been proved in'numerous in stances.. They do this because they do not know what they are about. In three days they have wasted butterfat enough to have paid for a paper a year that would have told them better. Good knowledge is always a good in vestment. ' Ignorance 'always costs more than knowledge. Get out of the shadow into the sunlight where' you can see what is going on.

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 August 1914

MELBOURNE LETTER. (From our Special Correspondent.) Perhaps among the best work done in connection with the State Schools, apart from the imparting of a worxing knowledge of the three R's-and there is a lot done apart. from those essen tials-is that performed by the medi cal officers, attached to the Depart ment. According to the report of these officers, they find that the three things most feared are fresh air, cold water, and sunshine. These fears they hope to eradicate by lessons on health topics and insctruction in the value of personal cleanliness. An ex tension of the time allotted to these subjects in the curriculum of the ele mentary schools would be welcomed. It is thought the present provision for 15 minutes tuition per week does not meet the necessities of the situation. The chief medical officers says that while the most immediately apparent results of their work will be those which follow the medical examination of the school children, the greatest benefits will eventu...

Terribly Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY ANNABEL GRAY. CHAPTER XXIV. GUY SPEAKS. "Whom the angles name Lenore, Nameless here for evermore." [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 August 1914

Terribly Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY "ANNABEL GRAY. CHAPTER XXIV. GUY SPEAKS. "Whom the angels name Lenore, Nameless here tor evermore." After witnessing the home-like scene of apparent happiness, Lenore felt her self possessed with the strength of an awful resolve. A feverish defiance was nerving her for action. Some times she paused and shuddered, and sobs shook her frame. She had walked miles, she had eaten nothing for hours, her last sovereign was gone, and the memory of that garret in the roof, the endless toil, the rebuffs, the insults, the hopeless wan dering from place to place in search of employment may have crazed her poor, suffering brain. Why did the lamps so strangely bec kon her on to the river? . . . They were not lamps at all, but stars-the stars of her childhood, the dear pity ing friends, the "forget-me-nots" of the angels," the radiant gems that had soothed her senses years ago when she had been a little weary child-of ten beaten, starved, and turned out in the co...

CLOVER WITH WHEAT. FODDER FOR SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 August 1914

CLOVER WITH WHEAT. FODDER FOR SHEEP. The value of red clover as hay crop sown with the wheat has been proved at the Glen Innes Experimental F'arm New South Wales, where the practice is followed of broadcasting about 10lb of seed six weeks or so after wheat is up, merely running the har row over the young crop before sowing the clover. After the wheat har vest, the clover is cut as a hay crop., and its value is exemplified in that at Glen Innes, during the :carly part of the past winter, some 200 sheep, chief ly eight months old weaners, were fed on red clover hay at the rate of 1lb a head a day. The sheep took to the hay readily, and more than held their owen on this class of feed. In the feeding, it was simply scattered about in the paddocks, and the sheep picked it up off the ground. The cost work ed out at just under one half-penny a head. a day. The only'explenses were the cutting, marking and stacking. Owing to the very severe drought, and consequent scarcity of grass and water...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 August 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. (By "Ambrosine.") Book" is eses?tially an English book, but while we. can't perhaps follow up some of the advice given it "is well worth our while to read the book, for it is as refreshing and uncommon as a housewife's confabulation with a wise niother. Philosophy is tucked into many a leaf that might seem .to the polite and distant mistress of servants merely a recital of house-keeping ex periences. Over twenty- years ago, it may be said, this anonymous writer published "From Kitchen to Garret," a book that ran into eleven editions, and the present is the outcome of numberless requests for another. "'I hope," says the writer in a preface, "that some day conditions will be even easier than they are now, when many things are specialised, and housekeeping is made so mechanical that it has ceased to be an art." So much is there packed into 'the book in over three hundred pages that the only wise thing for the reviewer is to' cull a few of the plums. No lover of the g...

THE DESPISED PARIAH. A DOG WITH A BAD NAME. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 August 1914

THE DESPISED PARIAH. A DOG WITH A BAD NAME. (By L.S. in the London "Graphic.") Lowest in dog life comes the Indian Pariah, or Pie dog, who has practic ally no owner, but attaches himself to every community in towns, villages and railway stations. The dog who chooses the last-named hunting ground is, by the way, less to be pitied than his fellows, for, though he may be minus a leg through having. gone to sleep on the line and having been run over, lie reaps a good harvest from.the refreshment room. The pariah is no more popular with Europeans than with natives, for he has many annoying habits. Oneo of these is to "bay te' moon" for hours together with a long-drawn melancholy howl, and no matter how often lihe is driven away, or even shot at, he per-. sistently returns .o the same spot and resumes his "song." He lies in wait round houses, too, darting in and car rying off. any food left for a moment unguarded, and in one hospital the patients were disturbed night after night by Pie do...

OF. RURAL INTEREST (By 'Rusticus.") .Mr. Mi. O'Callaghan, Chief. of the dairy 'branch of the: N.S W.

Mr O'Callaghan.awarmly took up'the cud gels from the butter producer's point of view. He said that if' the same' rate of wages were payable.in connec tion with the growing and harvesting of the nuts for margarine manufacture as we-re payable in connection i the production of butter, ' bu 'when the dairying industry, which was carried on by white labor, was asked to compete with the nut oil in dustry, carried on by black labor, there was no gainsaying the fact tha: the dairying industry must suffer in the question of prices.

FEDERAL ELECTIONS. MR BENNETT'S ADDRESS, On Thursday of last week Mr Ben nctt, M.5I.R,, addressed a large meeting in the Orbjst Mechanics' Institute, Mr 1P. A. Nixon occupying the chair. The candidate was well received, although there were a good many exchanges of c impliments between him and members of the audience and he had to submit to a lengthy ordeal of questioning at the close of his address. Although the chairman had occasionally to check the interuptions they were not very objec tionable and the candidate was accorded an excellent hearing. Mr Bennett, re fering to the present situation, and suggestions'made for the alteration of the constitution of the Senate, said he would not like to see that chamber abolished. In a few years Victoria would be a minor state. At the estab lishment of federation she had 24 mem bers and now has only 21. In ten, fifteen or twenty years the development. of the larger states must over-shadow the smaller area of Victoria, and the latter would th...
