QUESTION ANSWERED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
QUESTION ANSWERED ■« Anxious, L'Bridge.—To clean the Panama hat, try rubbing it all over with calcined magnesia. Put the hat in a clean pillow slip, and leave for 2-i hours. If the hat is not clean after the first application, repeat the treatment. Bran, moistenep. with petrol, is also good. Ethel.—I should send the christening cake in boxes. A nice idea is to have two sets of cards, the larger one bearing an inscrip tion something like this:—"On January 6, to Mr and Mrs —a son." The address might also be added. On the smaller card, which is attached to the larger card with white bebe ribbon, is printed the name of the child. Anxious, Armadale.—You should address him as Doctor. Marguerite.—"Write to Mrs 0.

BAD HEALTH. One of the most general causes of bad health Is the inefficient action of the kidneys and the liver. It is the function of the kidneys and liver to deal with certain waste poisons which are being continuously manufactured in our bodies, and, when the kidneys and liver are inactive or diseased, these waste poisons remain in the system, and cause us to suffer from rheumat ism, gout, neuralgia, lumbago, back ache, sciatica, blood disorders, ansemia, indigestion, biliousness,, jaundice, sick headache, general debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles. The reason that "Warner's Safe Cure has proved so ef fective in the above-mentioned com plaints is that the medicine heals and restores the kidneys and liver to hesyth and activity when the uric acid and other waste poisons are duly expelled from the body through the natural channels. Warner's Safe Cure is sold by chem ists and storekeepers, both in the ori ginal (5/) bottles and in the cheaper non-alcoholic (Concentrated) (...

HOUSEHOLD HELPS USEFUE HINTS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
HOUSEHOLD HELPS USEFUE HINTS - As shown in the illustration, a bag for straining- soups or jellies can be evolved in a few moments by fixing a clean cloth to the four legs of a chair, turned upside down on a table. Let the cloth fall slightly in the centre to form a bag-. A piece of huckaback or strong cheese cloth makes the best straining* cloth. This is more easily kept in order than flannel. The cloth should be well scalded before using". After the contents have been poured into the cloth, use no pressure. For jellies, the straining should be. done in a warm place, and out of the draught. The best plan is to let the contents drain all night. The setting of jellies to be used as cold sweets in hot weather often causes trouble. The following hints may prove useful:— The moulds should be well washed. Before using let them stand for a time, filled with cold water. If jelly be poured into the mould too hot it is apt to become cloudy. It will also be dif ficult to turn out. The best mo...

BAD EFFECT OF DRAUGHTS TREATMENT OF BRONnw^rr, ? There is one kind of trouble (says a writer in an English journal) that can not he avoided in the best-managed ooultry yard, and that is complaints of "the respiratory organs. There is always exposure to storms, sudden atmospheric changes . and presence of dust. Using finely-slaked- lime upon dropping boards set up', more trouble than is generally supposed. A short time ago I sent a rather valuable breeding pen af White Wyandottes to a client. The cockerel left me perfectly right, but must have been set in a draught by the railway people. Half the miseries of my life are caused by the neglect, dila tor iness and delay of railway com panies. Every trader tells me the same, and what is to "be the end of it we can not forsee. Anyhow, this bird arrived at his destination with a chill. We poultry farmers are expected to bear all and every risk, so the only thing to do was to have the bird back, and send another.

HANDY POULTRY KOPPER [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 31 January 1914
HANDY POULTRY KOPPEK Q ■ A desired length can be chosen for a poultry hopper, depending on the lengths of timber to be used. It might be made 16 feet long. The back should be 18 inches in height, the front about 12 inches in height. It should be 12 inches from front to back. A sloping cover from back to front, about 16 inches wide, can be hinged on the back. This cover can be raised so that the feed can be put in the "hopper. The lower half of the front should be made of a board or boards, and the upper half should be made with slats extending up and down as far as the cover. A little shelf in front, extending upward, like a Y, catches the waste that the hens make while feeding. These slats should be wide enough to admit the hen's head readily. This hopper is easily built, efficient and economical and sanitary. The box is divided into three compartments, and the "16ft. lengths will accommodate 1001b. each of bran and beef scrap and 501b. of charcoal.
