Then, rinso it in warm water (taking oaro not to wring the coat at all) and put it> into a pillow-slip. Pin this on to a clothes-lino on a dry, windy day, and when tho ooat is nearly dry take it out and put it on a coat hanger, to finish drying.

WORKING CLAY LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

WORKING CLAY LAND. There is a considerable area of heavy olay land in tho terraces bordering the alluvial flats and in rolling country, which grows moro than average crops when properly managed., but requires experienced handling. When ploughed the least bit too wot they pack, and the bad effect is not got rid of for several years. They get into a very retentive state, and lie cold and un responsive for a considerable part of tho year. They generally lack hu mus or vegetable matter, and are therefore difficult to got into good physical condition, and are only main tained in that condition by speoial treatment. It is generally conten ded that it is no use tile-draining such ground, and that it would not respond to such expenditure; but it has beon proved conclusively that suoh is not the case. Tile drainage is ex pensive, and the outlay is not repaid in one year or in two. Grain crops and root crops, are, however, improv ed to the extent of 20 per cent, to 30 per oent. by close tile-...

PUTTING SPELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

PUTTING SPELLS. Mr. M. T. Lowes, in the "Occult Review," tells some stories about wit ches. In olden days Welsh witohes used to "put spells" on tho animals of neighbours who annoyed them. If a cow was the victim it would sicken of no apparent disease, ceaso to give milk and, if the spell were not remov od, would die. The effect of "witch ing" a pig was tcfctfus© a curious kind of madness, something like a fit; this again ended fatally unless a coun tfir-oharm was forthcoming. Quite recently I saw one of these "charms" quoted in a local paper by a collector of folk lore. "An old witch living not far from Llangadoek (in Carmar thenshire) ... on one occasion when she had witched a pig, was compelled subsequently to unwitch the animal. She camo and put her hand on the pig's back saying 'Dtiwa'th gadwo i'th berchenog' (God keep thee to thine owner)." Which seems a mild way of oalming a frenzied pig. "A noted witch," says Mr, Lewes, "used to livo about a milo and a half from my own house....

Sundry Pars. GRASS FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

Sundry Pars. GRASS FIRE. , Several hundred acres of grass on the Ettrick estate were burned on Mon day as the result of a fire that started just off the Camperdown road. The outbreak occurred oppositeMr Jackson's residence between 12 and 1 o'clock, just after the passing of a motor car. It burnt a strip two or three chains v/ide parallel with the road, then crossed the Ettrick lane, and fanned by the south westerly breeze, travelled as far castas Lake Tooliarook. Fire fighters from Ettrick, Lai ra and Titanga were quick ly on the spot with water carts, and were assisted by some volunteers from Lismore, Gnarpurt and Derrinallum. At one time it seemed as though the Ettrick homestead was in dan ger of being devastated, and had a gale been blowing it would have been difficult to keep the flames from crossing the fire-break. When the fire was got under, the precaution was taken to burn some additional fire breaks, and the smoke of these during the afternoon caused people at a distance to...

REWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

REWARDS. It ? is beneath the dignity of those who can dtlord to set an artificial value upon their dignity to take a reward for finding lost property? The pre sent writer has put this question to many men and women during the past fortnight, and they have almost all replied, after different methods of oir .umlocution, that it depends upon the .mount. The answer is not logical, but it is natural and .it has some rea son in it. The speakers, of course, , lay themselves open to hard words. If they would not take ten shillings for finding a worthless trinket, why should they not refuse £10,000 for finding lost treasure? Do they require to bo paid not to steal? If they would not tako a small gratuity, why should they take a-large one? After all, a tip is a tip, whatever the coin or the figure. Do they mean that every man's dignity has its price? That is no doubt what they do mean, and all these taunts are fair; buti it remains true that quite as good people would oocept. the reward as wo...

SOILAGE VERSUS SILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 7 January 1914

SOILAGE VERSUS SILAGE. 4 In beginning tW article it may as well be admitted that my experience lies with the first named only, but I have had the benefit of the experi ence of successful dairymen living near, whoso methods and results have been freely given in conversation. Bo it also understood that I am not argu ing against the building of silos and their success as aids in the production of cream and butter, I am simply pointing out another road that leads to the sumo or even better results, namely, the soilage system. -. In considering the production ox green feeds for dairy cows there is one objection that is almost always raised, that is, the amount of labor required. To this I roply that nothing can bo accomplished without work, and that the amount of extra labor is not so great, if roghtly managed, as I-shall ahow. The great advantage of soil aeo is that it is the poor man's friend and that but little capital will be needed, to carry it on successtully. The winter months aro...

A DREAM. An Irish peasant dreamt lie was vis iting the late Queen Viotoria, and was asked by the Queen what he would like to drink. When ho expressed the humble wish for a glass of the liquor associated with the name of Jameson, and, when the Queen, still full of hos pitality, wanted to know whether he would take it hot or cold, ' he was foolish enough to prefer it hot. As the kettlei was not boiling, her Ma jesty in the dream hastened to make, up the;fire with her own hands, whilst her thirsty and loyal Irish subject waited anxiously. ; Alas, when the water came to the boil the noise of the steam awoke him 1 "I'll take it cold next, time!" he said, with infinite regret.
