The Worst Cook. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914
The Worst Cook. Not only are Englishwomen .the worst cooks; they are the most ex travagant qooks. They actually be lieve that there must be a certain am ount of waste in cookery. The dust binls of London are mute witnesses to the wicked and shameless Waste that goes on in our kitchens. Sometimes as I pass along the street and look at them in the early morning I wonder that an angry God does not visit us with pestilence as a punishment for exhibitions of mouldy bread, sour po tatoes, ends of meat and fish in these recptacles. Two persons - one or them doing the cooking in a tasteful, economic manner, can have the dain tiest, most delicious and .nourishing food in great variety on 10/ 'a week in London, even with the present high prices. It takes thought, it takes care, it, takes common sense, and it takes time. These are things the average Englishwoman refuses to give to .her preparation of food, and therefore a woman of many, gifts and graces in other directions, she is the worst co...
POULTRY HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914
POULTRY HINTS. Gathel eggs- daily. Never breed from'wry-tail birds. Eggs should be stored in a cool room. Bury the grain in the scratohing shed. Old- hens are only drones on the farm. - Cleanliness is essential in the poul try-house. If the male bird is sickly neve'" breed from him. Hlens are not profitable after the'* second laying season. Green feed should be fed every day in ungrassed runs. The Wyandotte is a great forager and an economical breed. Plymouth Rocks and Orpingtons are classed as first-rate utility birds. Separate the male bird from the flock till eggs are required for hatching. Crush the eggshells up. Never throw them out whole in the poultry yard. Liine, or better .'still, old . mortar, should always be placed in the stud breeding pens. You can't keep chicks in health -with out grit. You can't get eggs -from food that produces fat. You can't make a hen sit until slhe wants to. You can't keep hens in good condi tion without green food of some kind. You can't make a p...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus. ") One of the itost welcome of the in timations made by the State Premier at: l..sendon the other night was that soce proper invesrigatioll is to be ilande as to the manner in which the operations of the Closer Settlement systenu are being contucted. Every body interested in the working of the land must realise the need for this. There are many serious phases which must, be g r.)pl)ed with, and that with out delay, There is the failure of a large number of settlers on many of these irrigated settlemcnits to keep up their payments to the State-tihe payments of the usual purchase instaluhents, and interest upon outstanding nistahlmens, interest upon arrears, and interest upon loans advanced on farms by the board. It has been shown that the total arrears due by settlers to the State on account of the purchase of their land exceeds £150,000. This money covers only payments over due, and interest," but does not, of course, include the payments of pur chas...

Important [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914
Important Concerning some parts of the die trict news comes but seldom. This is not the fault of the Editor, for he has no miraculous power of knowing what is happening in all the area of circula tion. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease 7 If no one else is doing, it for your district will YOU try on these lines ? Send ac counts of public and social events in your township or neigborhood, such as weddings, deaths, accidents, concerts, matters touching the industries, etc. Write your name in some corner ; not for printing, but for good faith. Write the names of persons very distinctly. Do not bother about grammar or spelling; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifles . The barest skeleton is enough. Write on one side of the paper only. Give infor mation, but let criticism alone.

LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914
LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. Mr. S. P. Keys, writing in "Hoard's Dairyman,'! says:-LWhen we come to the question of the upkeep of the fer tility of our farms, we find that we face quite a serious problem. From what source. are we to restore the hunius, or vegdtabie matter, that is being rapidly exhausted by continu oua cropping? Manures and commercial fertilisers, while valuable, are not always obtain able. Farmers waste the barnyard manure, and feel that they canniot af ford to buy commercial fertilisers. To fill the bill there, must be something within easy access of every farm. The answer to this is-green manures. The king of legumes used in green manuring is lucerne. Not only does it answer every requirement of a green manure, but is is also one of the most valuable of the standard crops. You may be cropping a given piece of land to lucerie, obtaining each year from five to seven cuttings, and at the same time you have at hand the means of restoring the fertility of the soil upon...
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why is it that a newly-engaged girl is a thorn in the flesh to all her dis engaged sister women? To begin with-observes a lady correspondent (who is not newly-en gaged)-she is odiously sorry for you because you don't happen to be a betrothed person also. You may have heaps of chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who ever seiz ed upon her first proposal will patron ise you until you feel almost ready to accept anyone. When she isn't irritating you, the newly-engaged girl is rather funny over the ring more especially. This sacred object for a few weeks appar ently occupies the place of sun, moon, stars and all light. If it can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasidn. And then, in other ways, she is so hopelssly selfish. But perhaps the personal vanity of the-- ~er:gaged girl enrages her femin ioe acquaintances more than any of her numerous failings. To have to stand by and behold an insignificant, p...
