AUSTRALIAN MEAT SUPPLY [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
AUSTRALIAN MEAT SUPPLY Speaking about the present supply and demand of meat in 'Australia, the PAsronAL REvIEW says:-"It is not generally known, but at the pre-. sent time Australia is absolutely un able to supply her orders for meat. Cable orders for large quantities of canned meats arrive daily from all parts of the world, and merchants find it impossible to fill them. Recently, one firm in Sydney had an order for 10,000 cases of canned beef by cable from the United States, and had to reply 'impossible to procure.' The same firm could buy 60,000 cases for various customers, and cannot get it anywhere, or at .rny-°irice. Every inch of space on the steamers for America. and Canada is occupie:l with lines such as frozen meat, butter, can ned meats, wool, and even onions. More vessels are urgently required for the Pacific ports of North America. By a large number of people it is imagined that Australia can supply much larger quantities of produce thLan 'she has been doing. This is a m...

SANDCRACK [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
SANDCRACK - The term sandcrack is used to designate a split in the wall of the hoof. It nearly always extends in the direction of the horn fibres, from the coronet downwards, or from the eage of the wall up wards. In draught horses it is most common in the front of the hind feet, where a great strain oc curs in heavy draught or on slip pery ground, as any horse-owner will have noticed. In light horses the trouble occurs from concus sion, and the inner quarter of the fore feet, which is. weaker and more subjected to the blow, is generally the seat of mischief. Horses with upright feet, also those with flat, week feet, are very liable, and dryness of hoof is a contributory factor. By keeping the animal at work, the crack will piobably extend and grow deeper, until it reaches the quick and causes lameness and great pain by the sensitive parts being pin ched between the edges of the opening. The horse should be thrown out of work, the edges of the opening pared, and the sensi tive parts...
WHAT OUR FOREFATHERS ATE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
WHAT OUR FOREFATHERS ATE. bA German paper ,publishes an inter esting article on the lost disaes of dihe Middle Ages. It seems that tihe art of cooking has Ueclined, and that It is in part due to the cuanging fashions in food. i or instance, in Germany, in tihe middle Ages, many vegetables were eaten whih lhave long since dis appeared from the table, such as vio let leaves, nuxed with young nettles, thistles and green wheat, and boiled hemp seeds. Salads were made of mallow leaves, celery roots, and purs lane, mixed with salt and pepper, tor oil was almost unknown. Olive oil was considered to smack of elliminaoy and Italian - lury. H.orse radish sauce was used instead. The origin of sauerkraut is lost in antiquity. But it was certainly invented by the Ger man hausfrau loung before eauliflowers or artichokes or potatoes were known. The potato revolutiolfised the fare of tihe poor, who had formerly to rely on the roots of wild plants. 'The var iety of meats was larger, including beaver...
GIRLS WITH BRAINS NEEDED IN THE HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
GIRLS WITH BRAINS NEEDED IN THE HOUSEHOLD. :Domestio service as a career for educated. women" was advocated by :-M0is. Cloudesley Breteton at the Na tional Gas Conference. If the edu 'ca?ed' woman was to be the domestic aniaumaiden of the future, she said, it must be as friend and colleague, and not. as serf and dependent. Sue must share in domestic responsibilities They wanted to get back to thu oli fashioned ideas and ideals of the weli bred English woman, from feudal times onwards, and to uepart from the snubbish and paroouial idea that to understand housework was to lose caste. This was just a passing phasei -a vulgar phase-and had never seri ously affected the well-bred mistress. It was an ideal of the servant's hall, the middle class "'lady," and of the half educated noveaux riches generally, of those, in stort, who never saw behind the scenes of the real gentlewoman's life, and who seemed to imagine that a queen ate and slept in lull court robes, and that a real "lady" came d...

REJECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
RIJ JECTED. In a cariiage on a Scottish: iiaihfay sat a' number of gentloniemi'Yoff for 'the holiday. Conspicuous ii thli coinpany were two one an old nian iitli a. very bald head, aid the other a young fel low with a great crop of red -hair, whose fiery hue would outrival the set ting sun. When they had passed Paisley most of the travellers put down their news papers and began to yawn and look out lazily, awaiting tile arrival of the train at their destination. Tiring of this prosaio silence, the young man with the red hair selected the old man as the butt of his wit. "I say, old felelw," he remarked' rudely, "Nature surely had no hair in stock when you were made?" "She had sir, she had," replied th old man; "but it was all red, an'd I would not have any of it."'
UNGRATEFUL TOM. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
UNGRATEFUL TOM. Mr Blossom had been very ill; and by the time he was able to get downstairs. again, his hair had grown to a con siderable length. Then it was that Mrs B. volunteered to cut it for him. and Blossom, -probably owing to his weak condition,, consented to the ex-. periment. Mrs B. fastened the table cloth under Blossom's chin and got to business. Then Blossom repented his rashness." "Great Scott, Martha," he yelled, as Mrs B. jaminmed the point of the scis sors in his neck. "What the dickens do you think you're doing?" "''Anm I hurting you, dear?" mur Inured Mrs B. "It's only those cor ners behind your cars that bother me. Do keep still." And then she sliced a bit oif his ear. "Thundering Jumbo!" shouted B., jumping about the room like a oat on hot bricks. "Oh no, I'm only doing this for fun." And he dashed upstairs and plunged his head in the bath. "That's the worst of Tom," sighed Mrs 13.. as she toolk up. her knitting. "He's always so ungrateful!"
KEEP ON. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
KEEP ON. A young American lawyer, was de fending an old convict on the charge of burglary in a State where the court rules allow each side one hour to ad dress the jury. -The, young lawyer, somewhat nervous, consulted a veteran member of the bar, who happened to. be standing near. "How much time do you think I should take up in addressing the jur,y" he asked in a rather pompous manner. "Take the full hour," was the gruff reply. "The longer you talk the longer you'll keep your client out of gaoI."
TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. According to the statistics published (says the Mark Lane Expressy there were in England last year 214,831 acres classed as orchards. We are sorry to say we cannot say of "cultivazed orchards, because the mistaken idea seems to have prevailed to a great ex thail orchards 'and pastures can get along alright without attention or as sistance; that kind Nature ,is . on dowed them with ithe power of con tinuing to- extract nourishment. from a soil sucked dry by means of crop ping. The result of sf ch a paradox is visible in the poverty stricken con dition of many orchards anid pastures. It is pleasant to record, that a change for th- better is graduially taking place.

LATEST TELEGRAMS WHARF LABORERS' STRIKE COMPULSORY CONFERENCE PROBABLE Melbourne, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 February 1914
LATEST TELEGRAMS (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) WHARF LABORERS' STRIKE COMPULSORY CONFERENCE_ PROBABLE Melbourne, Thursday. Following upon the decision _of the Melbourne wharf laborers not to work overtime pending the agreement of the employers to the demand for increased pay, it is believed that Mr Justice Higgins will-take steps to call a com pulsory conference under the provisions of the Conciliation and Arbitration Act. The employers met this morning, but refused to divulge the proceedings, The overtime strike will affect the butter trade, as, by working day and night, the P. and 0. steamers' cargoes of butter can be loaded in 30 hours, but without overtime it would occupy four days. The rush of wheat is now over, so that that trade will not be affected.
