LEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
LEATHER. Jn this class some exceptionally fine work was shown. The show cases of the two local saddlers, Messrs Kneipp and Smith, were neatly ar ranged, and always form an attractive feature, of the pavilion. For collec tion the prize was awarded to Mr. Smith, but in the individual classes Mr. Kneipp was most successful. The judge specially complimented him 011 the stock saddle. A saddle of Mr. Smith's which attracted much atten sion was an all-over Doe one, which looked very neat and found ready sale. These two competitors are to be com mended for year in and year out help ing to make this section of the Show a .success. A collection of leather was shown by Whereat and Co.
IN THE PAVILION. FARM PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
FARM PRODUCE. It seems to bo generally conceded that no matter what quality exhibits are. shown in the skillion devoted to. this section, they don't look half as good as what they should, due to want of space for display and light. The single farm trophies were excep tionally good, and surprising to many. We will probably say something more about them in our next. There were two exhibits and Messrs. Chick and Party secure;! the first prize. Messrs. Lomax and Son acre the other ex hibitor. There was no exhibit for collection of potatoes, and Mr. Phillip Connolly was the only ex hibitor of collection of maize, in cobs. This is one of the most important sections of the Show, and wo hope that next year, with the now pavilion, it will be given more spaec. The farm trophy exhibits and the Leech's Gully exhibit were all favorably commented upon, and those responsible compli mented by many. They helped in a large degree to make this section re presentative of the district's pro duce vencss....
Antarctic Travelling. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
Antarctic Travelling. When Sir Ernest Shackleton was making his dash for the South Pole part of his diet (he said in his hook, "Farthest South") was pony-flesh, •Four Siberian ponies were taken to pull the sledges, but as these be came unfit for work owing to the extreme cold and lack of proper food, they had to be shot. A revolver was held about three inches from the forehead of the vic tim, and one shot was sufficient to cause instant death. The throat of the nnimal was immediately cut, and the blood allowed to run away. The carcase was then skin ned, and the meat taken oft the legs, shoulder and back. It was found best to merely warm the meat through when they want ed to cat it, and although rather tough the flavour was good, and it was a very great saving' of food. A dirty-looking stranger entered an hotel. "Where's the bar 7" he asked of Tat. who was standing at the door. "What kind of a bar ?" asked the latter. 1 " Why, a liquor bar, of course. Wnat do you supposo I mean 7" "W...
A Narrow Escape from Death. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
Marrow Escape from Death. A Warsaw book-keeper named Sch neider was awaiting- his trial, being charged with fraud. As his health was bad his family sent him many little delicacies unknown to the prison fare, delicacies, which, doubt less, his custodian shared. One day, amongst other tilings, a huge iced cake appeared. The warder's chil dren were fond of cake, so was his wife. They, therefore, determined to annex half the cake for their own consumption. Their astonish ment was great when, upon apply ing a knife to the dainty, it stuck just below the icing and refused to budge. "It must be baked to a cin der," said Mrs. Warder. But her husband, suspecting that something worse than careless baking was re sponsible for the cake's hardness, cut round the sides, and was rewarded by finding a revolver and seven cartridges buried in the paste. When arraigned before the authorities, Schneider confessed that lie had in tended to shoot his gaolers -and es cape from limbo before his trial. "Aft...
Absence of Mind. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
Absence of EViind. Sheridan Knowles, the author of "William Tell," was one of the most absent-minded of men. On one oc casion he sent • £200 in bank-notes to his wife, but forgot to address the envelope. The dramatist wrote furiously to the Postmaster-General, and the delay was explained. On another occasion he met a friend in the street, and said : " Ah, my dear fellow, I'm off to-morrow. Can I take any letters for you ?" "Well, yo« are very kind," said his friend ; but where arc you going ?"• "Ah !" replied Knowles, "I haven't quite made up my mind, yet." Rogers was once walking with equally self-ahsorberi friend, and in the course of conversation told him that on the previous day a lady, half - recognising him, inquired : " Isn't your name Rogers ?" "And was it," mildly inquired the friend. This is an admirable instance of absent-mindedness.
A GOOD PLAIN CAKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
A GOOD PLAIN CAKK One cup o£ sugar, 4 cup butter, 2 t'K'KS. 5 CUP of milk, 14 cups flour, and 3 level teaspoonfuls of baking I powder, with a leaspoonfiii of fla vouring extract. Such a battel' should be soft enough to spread out ^ evenly when poured in the cake tin, without being pushed into place with a, knife or spoon. It is a very common mistake to make the | hatter too stiff. ' " [ When eggs are scarce and only one can be spared for the cake, then omit the butter until last, and add it melted. This gives a soft mosit texture and makes the cake seem richer than it really is. It is a good plan, too, when using only one egg to beat yolk and white separately, both very light, and add them last. Egg whites should always be beaten on a plate with a large fork or wire beater, for the open surface al lows a greater amount of air to be entangled in the egg albumen.
Married by Force. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
[Harried by Force. One morning, sonic few years since, 1 a wedding party presented Uiemsol- j ves at the Mniris of Issondon, in France, and in due course the Mayor asked the bridegroom whether lie "would take this woman to he his ■ wife." lie received the surprising reply : "No, my first marriage was not sufficiently happy to warrant a second." "Come, come,"' cried the astounded official, "you should have thought of that before you came here. You must have known what you were doing." But the man only shook his head, and with the remark, "It's never too late to avoid being fool," took to his heels, followed by the rest of the party in hot pur suit. The chase was hot, but brief ; the quarry was soon cap tured, and led back in triumph to the Jiairie, where he was married out of hand.
A Curious Light on Russian Ways. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
A Curious Light on Russian Ways. A Scotsman who hurl worked in Hussia relates that when he first went there to act as manager of a large factory lie, by a misunder standing, paid the workmen less than their proper wages. Discover ing his mistake, he rectified the er ror on the following pay-day, and asked why no one had pointed it out to him at the time. The ex planation throws a curious light 011 Hussiun ways. "We thought," said one of the workmen, "that you were putting the money in your own pocket, and we were afraid to complain for fear of being dismissed." I
A Short Story. SAVED [?] THE SKIN OF HIS TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
saved£?>y the sk-in of "Quick, David, there's no time to lose.- I don't think the rascals have seen us yet, but we'll have to move just as quick as we can, for if- they do see us our lives won't be worth much;" and then Jesse Broughton, the speaker, tum bled hurriedly into the thick under growth and small trees which frin ged the edge of a thick wood which ran for some miles along the bank of one of the rivers of Northern Dakota. His son David, to whom the wards were addressed, a lad of somo fourteen years of age, almost as tall as his father, and as strong and : . hardy as n life spent in hard work | in the open air can make a boy, followed quickly behind him, throw- ' ing an anxious glance across the prairie behind him as he disappear- . ed amongst the limber. I The father and son had been out hunting, and quite by chance Jesse ! Broughton lmd caught sight of a band of Indians riding leisurely along the top of a slonv ridge not hnlf a mile away. There was no mistaking the erran...
Home-made Long-arm Pruner. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 March 1914
Home-made Long-arm Pruner. The cost of long pruning shears for tall trees is too heavy for the short time it is used by the ama teur gardener. However, it is so useful when high creepers and fruit trees have to be pruned that we are here showing a home-made "long-arm." Anyone can make this contrivance in a few minutes if one has a pair of pruning shears. Sim ply fasten one of the handles of the shears to the end of a long pole by means of small wire staples. Next make the quadrant to act ' as a crank, fasten this at the right ' angle by a single screw. Tie a piece of cord from the top corner 1 of the quadrant to the loose handle ' of the shears. To'the other corner | fasten a cord long enough to 1)0 ' worked by the pruner. Take care not to have the screw through the ' quadrant too tight or the spring on the shears may not be strong 1 enough to. draw it back. |
