CHARACTER AND HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 September 1914

CHARACTER AND HALR. It has been said that the finer the hair the gentler the birth, and it is certain!y true that those who are born in the purple are often remarkable for the soft, silky texture of the hair. Lustreless black hair is said to de note a jealous, treacherous tempera ment in nine cases out of ten, and it is a curious fact,- which cannot be re futed, that the lighter the colour the more sensitive is the owner to criti cism and the more quick to feel a real or fancied injury. The possessor of brown hair of a good depth of color and firm texture is usually disting uished for a good judgment, a lii.;, degree of reasoning power, and plenty of commonsense; while red-haired wo men, although often impulsive and quick-spoken, are strictly honest and truthful, show a fair amount of -com nion-sense, and as a rule, are bright, sunny, and gentle. Broken or split hair is said to betoken a badly-bal anced mind, the owner finding dit,, culty in forming a right judgment, and when seen i...

HIIEALESVILLE NEWS .Mr Tevlin, at the election meeting on Wednesday, mentiontl I he matter )f affixing meters to sptic tanks, Recently such had been ordered to be done, but a great injustice had been inflicted on owners of tanks, as, in stead of placing meters for thie septic tank supply only, they had been alli xed so that the whole supply was registered, which fell very expensive )n the property owners. Ismlcad of iiscouraging the installation of strptic 'an ks, he thought the council should encourage the practice, as it was in the best interests of the health con litions of 1-lealesville as a tourist re sort, Mr Robarts was of the same opin ion, and thought it unfair that pro perty owners should be penalized for mndea oaring to improve the sanitary :onditions of their premises by the .onstruction of septic-tanks. At the election meeting on \Ved nesday the question of erecting new countcil chambers was an important miject referred to by the candidates. Mr Tevlin said there had bee...

A MODERN TORTURE—MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 September 1914

A MODERN TORTURE--MUSIC. I live in a flat, on the second storey of a large building in E----, and above and below and beside me every neigh bour seems to own a piano or a har monium, violin, or gramophone. The small room which has been al lotted to me for work-quiet, think ing work-is directly below one in which a piano and a child have pain ful struggles daily. There is a simple little tune in "Hamilton's Instruction Book," called "Lilian's a lady." It is perfectly harmless; a genteel little air - quite tuneful, but to me, alas, Lilian is all that is unladylike and intolerable, and ,heo is responsible for the state of frenzy to which I am now reduced. Just imagine a simple little tune with a "one, two, three" bass causing so much misery l But what about the performer of this "lady" piece? Can it be a harmless, innocent little child? If a; child, how unchildlike in its per sistency-the same tune over and over again for three-quarters of an hour by my watch Now fast, with wrong bars ...

A HOUSE UNDIVIDED. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 September 1914

A HOUSE UNDIVIDED. There is a family in Yorkshire, geon tleinen farmers on a small scale, who received as heritage from their par cuts rare inventive ability and a small estate, poor and unencumbered. One was a doctor, another a butcher, an other an engineer, another something else. Whon the old people died all the boys returned lhome to work the inheritance The butcher looks after the stock, the doctor brings his scien tific training to practical bearing upon crops and what not, and shows him self almost as export a metallurgist as the engineer brother. All the tools about the farms are of their own making; the cattle fatten on food ar tificially enriched; the potatoes are dug by a machino built out of scrap iron, which takes them i)p, cuts off the tops, places them in aags, and ties tlhem. At Malton, Eangland, a root of Up to-Date potatoes has beei lifted, which yielded twenty-t\\o tubers, with a gross weight of 1S lbh. As two of the tubers were undersized, the averago weight of t...

GARDENING. FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 September 1914

GARDENING. (By Practical Gardener). FLOWER GARDEN. Flower seedlings of hardy annuals, etc., that have been in seed boxes during the winter months should be shortly removed to their permanent quarters. In transplanting seedlings, or plants of any kinds, care should be taken to get all tile roots and not as is usually done, pull them out roughly, and thereby leaving all the fibrous roots in the seed bed. A cool cloudy or showery day should be so leated for the operation, and in the case of the more tender kinds, shelter of some kinid (a flower pot is the most serviceable) provded for a few days. Early sowings can now be made (in a warm sheltered position) of Zinnia, Colosia, Agcratum, and other tender, halt hardy plants. For summer edg ing to follow lobelia, etc., there is nothing to compare with that pretty ullo bright blue ageratum, Celosia, or feathered cockscomb is one of the linest bedding plants for summer use that can be had, making as they do, a beautiful display of color in b...

DO MILK VEINS INDICATE CAPACITY? [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 September 1914

DO MILK. VEINS INDICATE CAPACITY? This question is raised for discussion by a correspondent of the "Melbourne Leader," who says: "First, as to these veins, why are they so called? They are not'milk veins. Some call them milk reservoirs, but this is also out of the question. They do not indicate dairy capacity in its fullest sense of the term exeept during the years that a dairy cow may be in her prime, as after the prime years the enlarged veins remain large. A common idea is that there is so much milk in the udder and the milker just has to sit down and milk it out, let it be much or little. This, I submit, is a mistake. The milker is the prime factory in filling the bucket. "The man who has his animals scar ed never gets much milk. By culti vatiing a quiet disposition in the cow, the instant you begin to prepare her udder and teats for the niilking (that is to cleanse or make them sanitary), she settles herself down to business. You start to milk. The small por tion of milk alread...

POULTRY ALPHABET. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 September 1914

POULTRY ALPHABET. A utility bird is rarely worth doctor ing, the axo being an excellent surgi cal instrument to apply to sick fowls. Balanced rations supply :eaximnum of e ourinhllnt with minimum of waste. Cull closely, for it does not pay to board idlers. Every insect left to mature will de crease the profits of the flock. F-i-l-f h spells failure. Good stock is the best foundation, but it must be handled with common sense. -Ions are not - magicians, so can not manufacture eggs unless given the proper materials. Indtolence and poultry-breedhng make a. combination which would bankrupt a wealthy financier. Just a little observation will prove that the I-know-it-alls never make suc ccssful poultrymen. 1K ndness shown to fowls pay in in creased egg-supply. Lice multiply rapidly in uncleanly sur roundings. Pay. chicks, .pushed to maturity, make fall layers tý fill in the time when earlier hatlchil birds are resting. No mixed flock can give the satisfac tion of a single breed. flne's fav...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 September 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") It comes to be a question whether the war or the drought is the more serious for Australia. Reports from Riverina, which" also apply to the con dit.ons over groeat portions of Victoria and South Australia are eloquent or the position. A Wagga report states that there have been several changes in weather conditions of late, but they produced only about 10 points of rain. Over the greater part of the wheat area of Eastern Iivorina the situation has now become very serious. Crops which up to a few weeks ago had been lairly well-grown, and of. healthy ap pearance are now perishing owing to lack of moisture. Numbers of them have turned yellow up to within a few aches of the heads. In many cases the soil is still showing through the cheat. For the eight months of the year there has only been about 700 points of rain-and half of that was received in March. The summer and winter have been the driest ever re corded in the history of the district. Less than ...

A CHINESE INCUBATOR. HOW HENS' AND DUCKS' EGGS ARE HATCHED UNDER RICE. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 September 1914

A CHINESE INCUBATOR. HOW HENS' AND DUCKS' EGGS ARE HATCHED UNDER RICE. In an American consular report pub lished is described an ingenious method by which Chinese in the district adja cent to Amnoy hatch both hen's and (lucks' eggs. The breeder first takes a quantity of unhusked rice and roasts it, cooling it down by fanning or by allowing the wind to blow through until it is luke warm. He then spreads a three-inch layer of the rice in a wooden tub, and places about 100 eggs thereon; anothec layer of rice, the second and subsequent layers being about two inches in thick ness, is spread over the eggs. Each tub has six layers of rice and five layers of eggs, so that there are 500 eggs in each tub. The rice is heated once every twenty-four hours, the eggs being taken out at such times. When the eggs are again put in the rice the bottom layer is placed on top and each of the other layers one row lower down, while the eggs previously in the centre of the tub are placed at the edge.
