Making Her Things last. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 12 January 1887

making Her Things Last. Every housekeeper knows how careful treatment keeps table linen and household furniture. ' Girls do not always know or re member that great care of their own little possessions will often enable them to dress nicely on very little money. A lady says : ' When I was a girl there was one of my young friends who was distinguished for 'making her things last.' Her dress, hats, gloves and ribbons were a marvel of dura bility. I used to wonder how she managed to make them last so without their looking shabby, but I ceased to do so after I had visited her at her own home. The reason why her clothes wore so long was that she took Buch good care of them. Her dresses were brushed and folded away carefully, and the slightest spot on them was removed as soon as it was discovered. Her hat was wrapped in on old pocket handkerchief and put away in a box as soon as done with, the strings and Inces being straightened and rol led out most symmetrically each timo. Her gloves wer...

Boy Inventors [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 12 January 1887

Boy Invcutorti' There are a good many useful Inventions which ore tho outcome of somo boy genius and the records ot tbe Paten t Ofiico show that quite a number of patents have been issued to ininor3 through their guardians. Tho in vention of tho valve to aitcain engine was a very incomplete condition, from the fact that there was no way to open and close the valve except by means of lever, operated by hand. He set up a large engine at one of tho mines, and a boy (Humphrey Totter) was hired to work these levers. Although this is not hard work, yet it required his constant attention. As bo was working the levers he saw that the engine moved in the. right direotion and. at the samo time lie had to open and close ' the valves. Ho procured' a strong cord, and made ono end fast to the proper part of tho engine, nnd the other end to the valve lever and the boy. had tho satisfaction of seeing the cngino move with pesfeet regularity of motion.

[?! The Size of the Spider's Thread. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 12 January 1887

ihnra'.c. Tlio Sizo of tlio Spider s Tliroad, I havo [often compared the sizo of the thread snun bv full grown spiders with a hair of tnv beard. For tins purpose I plaecd tho thickest part of the hair before tho mi croscope, and from the must accurate judge ment 1 could form, more than a hundred of such threads pfctced side by side could not equal tho diameter of one such hair. If, then, we suppose such a hair to be of a round form, it follows that ten thousand of the threads spun by the full grown spider, wlien taken together, will not equal in substance to the size of a nindo hair. To this if wc-add that four hundred young spiders, at the time when they begin to spin their webs, aro not larger than a full gnnvn one, and that each of these minute spiders possesses the same organs as the larger ones, it follows that the exceedingly small threads spun by these little creatures must, be still four hundred times slenderer, aud consc quently that four millions of these minute spiders' t...

Milk in Fig Fending. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 12 January 1887

Milkin3'is Fending, In the paper read at the Dairy Conference on the Utilization of Seperatud and Skim Milk, Mr. Jasper A. Stephenson said:— ? t So far as can at present be ascertained, tlie , ; value of seperatedmilk for pig feeding varies - from'ljd. to 3d. per gallon, according to tho ; price of pork. Probably the average compu tation of reliable authorities would fix its value for this purpose at about 2d. per gallon, less or more, when there is an average market, although their appears to be room for moro extended and exact experiments in arriving at its proper value. A scientific American fanner, who favors me with occasional communications on dairy ing subjects, found by carcful experiments ? conducted by himself, that 1001b, skim milk, mado GJlb. of pork, which at 3d, per lb., would pay l'S7d. per gallon, or if the price ' were 5d, pcrlb. for pork, the skim milk would - bo paid for at the rate of !H2d.. per gallon.

Farmer. Shying Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 12 January 1887

farmer* Sltring Horses* ! This triok or vico is generally tlie effccfc of » nervous timidity, resulting from an cxcitable ? temperament. It 1 aggravated by improper ; handling. To punish a horse for sby in? mtro- ? duces a new cause of fear. The horse will bo more alarmed and show more tokens of fear at tho prospect of a whipping than at tbo imaginary objcct of danger in tlie road. Hence one bad babit is confirmed by the -- introduction of another. It is impossible to j ? whip terror out of a horse or pound courage ! ' into one. Kindness and gentle persuasion are the best weapons to correct the pornicious habit of shying. The less fear exhibited by the driver, and the less notice taken of tho - shying by using harsh means, tho sooner- it * will bo given up. A careful, experienced ? horseman can generally detect an object . likely to cause a nervous liorso to shy, and. ? by word or touch will encourage him to pass - ? it unnoticed. When this fails, give him time ' to look at the obje...

As I have already said, Dick Nagentwasaa officer in the now defunct Cape Mounted Bifles, and that, after thedisbandmentof that gallant corps, he came out to Australia. So he did. Bat there remains between Grahams' Town at the Cspe, and Australia, a hiatus of two years to be filled up, and this is the very myEtery, a mystery about which you could very rarely get Dick to say anything, for he was as modest us ho was bravo, and his gallant deeds, although iecordcd in the regi inentel orders oi the day, were seldom, if ever, alluded to by himself. The fact is that Dick, during the two ye3rs referred to, had been in New Zealand, where ho had done good ncrvica with the trcops under the command of tha gallant end lamented Von Tempsky. Dick was as da5h ing a light dragoon as ever wic-lded a sabre, or wore a forage cap on three haira, and soon attrao...
