WHAT'S THE USE OF FRETTING. » Not n bit of use. About anything that is beyond recall don't waste uu instant.' It-will servo, no useful pur r-pose. Instead of crying over spilt milk, tho very best thing in tho world to do is to replace it as quickly m possible. That's it, keep serene awl smiling, and start out afresh. There's your policy for this workaday world, and don't yi»u forget it.

It will not make for carelessness, so -do not think so. Tho thought that If you do make a mistake it is re* triovable, and you allow yourself no time to do it over again, should .spur you on to do your beat, and more than that no mail or womnn can do.

SALTING COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 9 January 1914
SALTING COWS. Oows that are good producers ilsi approximately three ounces of .will,; per. day; and that dairy cattl(> should have salt is one o! the vcr> important questions many of us &lt;lc hot understand, and therefore net;-., lcct, writes a Canadian dairy farm? er. All animals which consumo largt quantities of vegetable matter rorjuln salt, ' - Salt is required tp expel the excess of potash from the animals body which is taken in with the vegetable food. Cows which do not get sufil cient salt gradually change to n con dition of low vitality indicated by rough coat, which results in a hmil breakdown. If salt is supplied when in this condition, recovery is pos sible.

STUMP CLEARINC BY ACIDS. A New SoutU Wales larmer report ed as having been successful in des troying stumps with a mixture ol sulphuric and nitric acid. In treating a swamp stump, 3tt. 6ln» in diameter," 6d worth of acids was put in on.; augur hole, and in five weeks"timc\ the wholo stump and roots had =;. so%; rotted that they could, he knocked to. pieces with a hoe. A stump 3ft. in . diameter would take about half a, pint each of acids, and a smaller one less. The acids are used in equal quantities, and nothing is added to them. A hole is bored in the stump with a 2-inch augur, deep enough to hold the quantity of acid to be used, and then one acid is poured in and the other added. The hole is then plugged airtight with a wooden plug. Not more than one pint of acids (half a .pint of each) should be mixed at one time. Mr Guthrie, Now South Wales Government Chemist, says : "There should be no risk attending the mixing o! the above quantities provided* the sulphuric ncid is added to.t...

A STILL TONGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 9 January 1914
A STILL TONGUE. ? . "A still tongue makes a wise head/ .ays proverb. Ia this chattering ago H is difficult to maintain a gol ftcn silcnco. The foolish habit o( talking whether one has anything to communicato or not leads hundreds astray. The beauty of silcnco mny be praised hy philosophers, but it is seldom practised by people; in the religious orders al&lt;*ne it is raised to its proper position. There, indeed, All religions agree, all state that vir« ftuc grows in silcnco, and power in creases with solitude. Silent meals are the great aid to arresting scandal, of which thero ia far too much to-day. Constant shat ter about people invariably leads to* exaggeration and unkindness. II you want to get on smoothly with your friends, cultivate tho habit of silence. Petty details when talked about as sumo undue proportions, whilst evils decrease when treated with silence. It fs astonishing, too, how we forget our wrongs when wo don't talk a Itottt them.

CEMENT IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 9 January 1914
CEMENT IN THE DAIRY. In our visits among tho dairy farms, tho' creameries and the cheese factories It is gratifying to note tho increasing « tendency 'to** use ccment ^ and concrcte construction. It does not only show that those who cm ploy this class of construction . have an eye to durability, efficiency and j economy, but it indicates a perman- ^ ency attached to the business that was less prevalent not many years j ago. Then a dairyman built a* shack for a barn, with dirt floors, and no ! provision for drainage. His dairy I house was a flimsy shed. He figured that this kind of construction, un- ^ sanitary, cheap nnd flimsy as it was, would lust him a few years, by which j . time he hoped to be fortunate enough ' j to be out of the business. Have you ' ^ ever noticed that it is the class of , people who think like this that have to stay in it the longest whether they choose to or not ? The dairyman with the right.idea of economy, and who wants satisfac-1 tlou and good sfirviee, g...
THE FARM. WHY GIRLS LEAVE THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 9 January 1914
THE FARM. 1 WHY GIRLS LEAVE THE FARM. So much has been said about why boys leave the farm, but bow about the girls ? . What right has a girl on the farm ? 3n many cases, none at all, you might say. I! stie wants to go to a party or dance she must ask: father or mother ; and what will thoy say ? No ! And how do you think she feels if Bhe hears of other girls going, and after they get back she hears them talk of the good times they had. I think after a girl gets to he eighteen. or nineteen her parents should allow her to go out with her girl and boy friends to parties or wherever there is a social gathering. Of course, in some towns there are boys, and girls as well, that parents would not want their girls to keep company with, but this isn't always the case. And how are the girls treated about the farm work ? They must do all the house work, all the scrubbing, baking, washing/ ironing, and work in the garden, besides milk ing the cows, hauling bay, cleaning the cow barns, hauling man...

CHAPTER IX. If over s man foil suddenly into boundless sea of smiling favour, that man waB Barnes. Edwina had boon reared with a most worshipful regard for the exalted stato of the nobly horn. It had been part of her educa tion that an English maiden's duty not so much to hersolf as to her family-was to marry well. Added to the .opinion thus fostered by educa tion was a natural ambition, which, so far, had seemed utterly beyond the possibility of fulfilment. And now, apparently from the skies a scion of one of the noblest houses of England falls into her very lap. Edwlna would not have been the daughter of Thomas Stecde, brother of Sir Peter Steede, Bart., had she not been fully alive to the advan i tnges of the present situation. In I three hours after the introduction of ! Borncs as Gerald Covering, Edwlna had almost forgotten Vane Prance. She had entirely forgotten the symp toms of budding love that-had stir red her bosom at the interview by the rock. With Gerald Lovering as a po...
