MATTER OF BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 21 February 1914

MATTER OP. BUSINESS. "This liouse to lot — only couples about to bo' married need apply," is. an enticing notice which attracts many young people, to the doors of a pretty suburban, residence. . But, strange to say, the occupancy of the house never changes. . _ "I think you ask to much for your villa, Mrs. W.," the next-door neigh bour remarked to the owner—-shab bily dressed widow. "You could 'tt. it easily if you reduced the rent a lit tle." "But I don't; want to let it!" she repoated. "Then why do you put that notice in the window" : ".Well, you see,? I'm a lonely widow, with only myself to depend on, and I'm obliged to eke' out my tiny income somehow," the widow answered, confi dentially., "So I write down the names and addresses of air young-cou ples, who call. and sell them at a fair price to a firm "of cheap house furnish ers."

RANCID BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 21 February 1914

RANCID BUTTER. Bacteria ofl certain kinds are un doubtedly the most, offensive agents in making butter rancid,' but it may;also be caused by oxidation, duo- to the ac tion of lightand air. Any kind of un clean iiness in the dairy will at ones tend to produce rancidity in-'the pro duce. ~ The use of impure water for washing up the dairy utensils, failure to wash the butter in the grain suffi ciently, the use of milk from dirty, cows, or milk which contains colostrum as yielded by freshly-oalved cows, all these causcs help to make butter rancid. No doubt the commonest cause of rancidity i is failure to wash sufficiently the butter in the grain. The caseinous matter, or buttermilk, if left in the butter in excessive quantities, will quickly sot up decomposition- and impart a very strong flavour to the produce. It can easily be discovered whether the -wash ing of butter has been properly per formed or not; all that is necessary is to. press gently, but firmly, en a piec; . of the butter...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 21 February 1914

MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent.) Mr Agar Wynne, like all progressive Mini.-.ters, is encountering his full share of the "stand pat" proclivities, that characterise all permanent offi cers, in ~ his endeavor to make the Pos tal Department the useful institution it should*.be. Anything that savors of a climb out of thq rue of the easy way of doing things is fiercely resented by the officials. They very naturally argue that they, get nothing .out of _ in creased business. That-good old miloh cow—the State—can be relied upon to find theii salaries whether the con cern they are working for ia a payable one or not; and as for the public—-he idea of consideration for that not al ways too amiable entity is, from their 6tam!point, too ridiculaus for words. Then fore, when a Minister like Mr Wynne gets charge and wants to run a Department on business like lines, and in the way that a private -enter prise out to secure payable business, and plenty of it would be run, he creat...

GARDENING BY THE BLIND. Would you know a geranium (asks a London writer) if you were not allowed to open your eyes, and only permitted to feel it? . Probably you would tnot, but the pupils at Swiss Cottage School for the Blind are experts irTgardening by touoh and smell, and by these means culti vate all their flowers. They can distinguish almost any flow er either by touching it .with their fing ers and thumbs, or by smelling it. Their sensei of touch" also guides them in weeding. By feeling the"weed, they distinguish it from aflower. A test was applied to one of the younger gardeners of the school. He id fourteen years of age, and has been totally blind from birth. He was ask ed to name all the flowers he felt and almost every answer he gave was oor rect. ■ •. . % -"'This one is an antirrhinum," he ' said, feeling it lightly between finger and thumb.
