USE RAIN WATER FOR CHOICE [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 3 September 1928
USE RAIN WATER FOR CHOICE The bath should be thoroughly stirred from the bottom throughout its entire length jus before commenc ing and also during dipping. All scum should be skimmed off as it forms. Rain water should be used in preference to that fro^n creeks and springs, as the latter sometimes contains large quantities of lime or iron, and the water will consequent ly be 'hard,' and as such will lack the penetrating power of rain water. Hard water renders the mixing of many dips more difficult, and will sometimes make the wool harsh. It may be softened by adding 21b. of common washing soda to each 100 gallons of water. The soda should first be dissolved in hot water ana' then stirred into the bath. The sheep should be yarded over night, and dipping commenced early in the morning, and continued only so long that all sheep can -dry before evening. If this is carried out much fouling of the bath will be avoided, but care must be taken that the sheep are not thirsty, as they are apt...

USEFUL THINGS TO KNOW [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 6 September 1928
USEFUL THINGS, TO KNOW That i£ you add a little hot milk to butter and sugar when they are to be creamed for a cake, they will blend more quickly and easily. That if you let potatoes you mean to bake stand in hot water for a quarter of an hour, they will be more meally and bake much moi'e quickly. That when you chop candied peel or raisins the work will be much more easily accomplished if you rub a little butter on each side of the knii'e. That if you you add just a pinch of ground ginger to a milk pudding it will give a delicious flavor and that you will need less sugar than usual. That in cake making, the plainer the mixture the hotter the oven should be, and the richer the mix .ture the cooler the oven for more gradual cooking. That a spoonful of vinegar will set a poached egg. That to use butter rather than milk if potatoes need extra thinning. This will make them of a nice consistency and give them a richer flavor. . -

To-day that mine is earning* net piofits of 12,000,000 dollars a year for the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company.'
