Carpendeit. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 4 February 1914
Cfirpendeit. Growing crop?, audi ns potatoes, maize, rnpe,*ranr)gol(l?, &c., will greatly benefit by the recent rni.is. Harvesting, except for a few late crop?, baa been completed, and the results, although a long way behind the heavy yields of last year, arc considered to be fair. Owing to the abundance of grass last winter a large quantity of hay has been held over. This with the prevailing low price of bay and chaff, will have the effect of reducing tho area placed under cultivation this year. Soda should never be used for cleaning glass of any kind, as it will soon destroy the brilliancy of the ware. Naturally if the glass be very greasy there is no help for it; but immediately the grease is removed the article should be thoroughly rinsed in clear cold water. GOT VERY WEAK.
