THE WONDERFUL EGG. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 26 February 1914
THE WONDERFUL EGG. Within the limits of an egg shell ere found every element necessarj to the support of man. The nature of the food eaten by the hen creates the Ssvour, the colour of the; shell hav ing no bearing whatever in the mat ter. The relative weight of an eggs is : shell and lining material, 106.9 ; al bumen. 60-1.2 ; yolk, 288.9 ; one half the. egg is nutriment., The nutriment of meat is rated, at best, as only one-fourth. Consequently, os.e pound of eggs, j in nutriment value. Is eqasl to two pounds of meat.

THE FARM. A LOSS PREVENTED IS A PROFIT MADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 26 February 1914
A LOSS PREVENTED IS A PRO FIT MADE. The greatest losses on a farm are very often the unnoticed ones. They are unnoticed because they are not apparent on the surface. One of the most serious of these losses is lime. Three wide gates for ever stand open on our farms, and through these gates the valuable lime in the soil is ceaselessly going, never to return unless brought back in the farmer's dray. What are these gates, and why are they left open ? Is it possible to keep therq, closed ? We shall answer these questions to the best of our ability. The first of these gates is the crop ; and since a farmer cannot live unless he markets his crop, be it milk, live stock, grain, or fruit, this gate cannot and must not be closed. The second gate may be called drain age, and this may be kept closed, and certainly should for a great part, of the year. The third gate is called "artificial fertilisers," and should only be left open under exceptional [ circumstances. j We often wonder whether farm...

Stewart (Mayor), Kline, Walker, Curry, Whereat, Taylor, Corney, and Stevenson. The minutes of the last meeting wore read and confirmed' on the motion of Aid. Whereat and Kline. Mayor's Minute,. " MAYOR'S MINUTE.. • Building Regulations.—I recommend that Clause 117 of the Building Re gulations be altered to read : "No shop or other building • for business purposes shall be constructed of any material other than brick, stone, concrete or other approved mater ial." The Mayor moved its adoption, Whereat seconded. Aid. Kline spoke against the minute, because of the openings it left for ap plications to build of different materials being granted, but even if it was adopted permission could not be granted to build of materials which would not make the walls a certain thickness. They had gone to a lot of trouble in compiling the n gul liions, and he hoped the aldermen wo...
The World' Butter Production. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 26 February 1914
The World' Butter We read in the papers that the world's hatter production is increas ing by leaps and hounds ; that through the higher standard of living, 'mure butter is consumed now than formerly. The great increase in the production ' of buttef throughout the world has been co-incident and contemporaneous with, the almost universal use of the "Alfa-Laval" Creaai Separators. Ifully one and a half million " Alia-Laval" Cream Separators ■ are in use ; no wonder the name is a household word in the dairying community, and a name to conjure: with-—a name which stands for- everything which is best in cream separators. l'eliability, sim plicity, easy turning, clean skimming, combined with moderate price, have placed the Alfa-Laval" on a pedestal of distinction and merit, from which it will never be deposed. At various times there have been various makes of cream separators put on the world's markets, hut generally, after a short and inglorious career they ilieker and. die, and nothing f...
CHAPTER XXIII. A TRIUMPHANT HOME-COMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 26 February 1914
CHAPTER XXITI. A TRIUMPHANT HOMR-COMTNG. After a short conversation with Sir Thomas T_,aUmer, in which he inform ed me that his niece's funeral, which would be strictly private, was fixed for the next day, as he was anxious she should he buried before her con fession became public, I left the Grey House for ever, glad to escape from the horrible associations con nected with it. I proceeded at once to the Hall, and on reaching it found the marquis, as usual, in the library. He rose as I entered. "You have come at last, Mr. Brown. I have been wishing to know how you were acting." "X could not leave the Grey Xlouse sooner, my lord. Now my presence is not needed. She who is guilty of your son's murder has gone to an swer to her Maker for that sin." "What ! Is she dead ?" exclaimed the marquis. "She died last night, and I am thankful it has ended so." "Was she guilty, do you think ?" j "I had proof of her guilt, my lord. The bullet fitted Sir Thomas Lati mer's pistol ; but her confession...
