BACON CURING. Departmental Guidance.—Killing the Pig.—Dry Curing or Pickling. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
BACON CURING. Departmental Guidance. — Killing the Pig ? Dry Curing or Pickling. The following notes in regard to the the curing of bacon have been issued for the guidance of settlers, by the in structons of the Hon. C. F. Baxter, the Minister for Agriculture: — Pigs for killing should be in perfect health, otherwise they will never make good bacon. The best class of- bacon is only ob tained from young pigs, ranging from six to eight months old, and weighing from 150 to 2001b. live weight, which is equal to 120 to 1601b. dead weight. Before killing, pigs should be starved and remain quiet for 24 hours, and should have access to plenty of clean water. The pig should be first stunned, and then stuck by' inserting a long knife in the pig's throat, immediately in front of the breast bone, with the point towards -the tail; this severs the arteries on both sides.' The pig should be well bled. The scalding vat should be three parts fill ed with hot water, from 165 to 175 degrees, Fah. . Th...

Social and Personal. — » Mr W Leslie Owen, a nephew of our Resident Magistrate, and a re cent visitor to Bunbury, has a daughter. Asa .flying man, Mr Owen did splendid work duriner the war, and bad one miraculous escape from death. He was one of the Aus tralians to bring a bride from Engi land. Our sincere congratulations are extended to the happy couple. On the 26th April last, Mr E. J. Dawson, a member of the local P.O. staff, and a son-in-law of Mr Jack Boulden, died aged 28.

LEMON JAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
LEMON JAM. , ??.'/ Take lib. of ripe lemons; wash them clear of specks, and grate the skins. Take off the rind and cut it into vari ously shaped, broad, thin pieces. Cut the pulp into slices and remove every seed. Put all the fruit into a clean preserving pan, with half an eggspoon of salt and three pints of boiling water. Boil with the lid on the pan until the fruit is quite soft and the water reduced to about one-half. Now add 31b. of white crystal sugar, and boil steadily for about an hour, then try some on a plate to ascertain if it be stiff enough; bearing in mind that lemon after it begins to jelly, will quickly take on a brittle consistency. Some readers. may think this is a great deal of water and sugar for a little fruit; but the proportions are in no way disproportionate for the - pro duction of a good article. Care musb be taken not to evaporate too much water- at the first boiling; indeed, if the peel be properly softened, it will be better to have rather more than less ...
Railway Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
Railway lofes. Last week, there were 14 of the station staff off duty ill, so casual labour had to be utilised to cope with the work, and temporary transfers have been the order of the day. We regret that our District Superintend ent Mr W C Robinson, has been obliged to go into St Clair's Hospital to undergo an. operation. Latest re ports says that he is progressing favourably. ..We hope that he will soon be about, again. Alec Brodie resumes duty in the Department again on Monday, after over 5 years active service. He left here with the first contingent in 1914 as a private, and has been through the whole campaign. He returned with a Captain's Commission. He relieves Mr P E Teague, the assistant station master, during the latter's long service leave. I notice that the fatal accident which happened to a returned soldier (Private Underwood) at Pinjarra on August 1 8th escaped the metropolitan press until reported in the ' Bunbury Herald ' on the 23rd inst.
ONION RECIPES. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
ONION RECIPES. In- preparing onions peel them under running water- or in a basin of water, or pour boiling water over them for a mo ment or two before peeling, to prevent the unpleasant 'weeping' to which all cooks naturally object. Cook on ions in an uncovered vessel. A bit of charcoal will assist in preventing the escape of any unpleasant odour. Creamed Onions. ?

GAS-STOVE TIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
GAS-STOVE TIPS. Always keep your gas-stove clean. Gas cannot make its way and give out full heat through dirty burners. Once a week, all enamelled parts of a gas-stove should be scrubbed with very hot soda-water and some strong soap, and any stains cleaned with Panshine or other cleanser of a gritty nature. Fine ashes will do if they are well -rinsed^ away. All remo.vable bars ' and burners should be scrubbed and wiped dry with a soft cloth before they are replaced. Some people black them . for appear ance sake, but in the case of burners this often helps to clog them. Stopped burners should never be poked about with hair-pins, skewers, knitting-needles, etc. This enlarges the holes, and gas is wasted. Keep the meter tap at half-cock, se that when there is, full outside pressure from the main, it will not rush through the pipes at your expense.
Poultry POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
[?] POULTRY NOTES. 'By James Hadlington, Poultry Ex pert in the Agricultural Journal of N.S.W. There is a fallacious notion abroad that only second-year hens should be bred from. That this is entirely wrong lias .often been emphasised in 'these notes, and lias also been amply demonstrated at Hawkesbury Agri cultural College, where every year we breed from quite as many pullets and cockerels as second-year hens and cocks. Hatching operation proper commence on the 1st June at the College, and are continued to the end of September; but the birds hatched during the six weeks from the last week in June to the first week in August are the best stock to breed from in the following.' year, and July hntched birds are the most valuable of all. Those who visit the College during the months of February to May, when the buik of the young stock is there, will appreciate the good develop ment obtained. In fact, the opinion has been most unanimously expressed that nothing finer is to be found in th...

REINFORCED CONCRETE BUILDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
REINFOEOED CONOBETE BUILDINGS. It has beenfor many years the object of house designers to produce a rein forced concrete dwelling in which the primary considerations of cheapness of construction and durability could be at tained. The main obstacle, up to the present time, has been the heavy cost of the outfit employed in moulding the walls. The plan adopted in building structures wholly or partly of concrete has been to set up temporarily a double wall. The space between is then filled in with the reinforcing medium and the concrete filling. When the cement has set sufficiently, the frame walls which are generally composed of wood planks, are removed. It is found that the wooden framing is not only most expensive, but quickly becomes unfit for use. To avoid these disadvantages, and to produce the finished product at a much lower cost than any building of this class heretofore constructed, a Perth Architect has designed a method in which the cost of the plant for moulding the walls o...
POULTRY FEEDING. The Meat Ration. [Newspaper Article] — The Bunbury Herald and Blackwood Express — 30 August 1919
POULTRY FEEDING. The Meat Ration. At the recent annual conference of poultry-farmers at the Hawkes bury Agricultural College, at Rich mond (N.S.W.), Mr. W. H. Paine, of the animal foods department for the Meat Industry Board, read a paper upon the effect of various kinds of meat-meals and other foods upon the digestive system of poultry. He stated that the Metropolitan 'Meat Industry Board had now established thea nimal foods department for the purpose of manufacturing poultry and pig products, such as meat and blood, and so on. This meat would be a clean and wholesome product, made from plucks and carcase por tions, and would contain no objec tionable refuse, such as was used in the manufacture of manures. - It was expected to produce a new meat that would contain 70 per cent, of crude proteins and 60 per cent, of digestible proteins, and therefore would have three times the feeding value of the B. and B. fertiliser which farmers had be^n using for poultry feed. The proper method o...

8olf Notes. w . - By ' Mashie.-1 The event of the week was the final match in the Club Champion ship, played on Sunday last, between Parkes and Dempster. This was Quite the best came played this season, and attracted quite a gallery. Eighteen holes were played in the morning and eighteen in the after noon, the result being a win for Parkes by five up and four to play. This was not quite a fair criterion of the play, which was wonderfully even right through. Parkes was more accurate in his putting, and tbe rub of the green was against Dempster. Both players drove well, there being little to choose in length or direction. The first two holes were halved. Parkes won the third and Dempster the fourth ; the next two were halv ed ; the next four went to Parkes ; the nth was halved ; Dempster won the next two ; the 14th and 15th were halved ; the 16th was Parkes'*and the 17th and 18th. Parkes was, there fore, three up on the morning's play. In the afternoon, Dempster won the 19th ; the 20t...
