A SCORCHING DAY. 104 DEGREES IN SHADE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 February 1914
A SCORCHING DAY. ;04 DEGREES IN SHADE, Yesterday was the hottest day for the Summer—a veritable scor cher. The highest reading of the thermometer was at 1 o'clock, when the mercury rose to 104 de&lt; grees. At 2 o'clock a north westerly breeze sprung up, and somewhat cooled the atmosphere Still the ; heat was almost unbearable, and everyone was affected more or less. At 3.30 dense clouds of dust en enveloped the main streets for some time.. When the dust subsided the sky became overcast, and ominous mercurial clouds darkened the hea vens. A few drops of rain fell, but ii was of no moment. At a little after 4 o'clock a ter rible gale set in. The wind at tained enormous strength, and must have attained a velocity of upwards of sixty miles an hour.. A vast amount of damage was done. Hay stacks were the chief sufferers, not a few being razed to the ground, whilst a few roofs were blown from buildings and carried bodily away some distance. The trees in the gardens and streets als...

BABY'8 FLOCKS AND HERDS. As sooi} M a Lapp baby is born, a reindeer Is presented to him. This reindeer is literally his a'art in life, for not only that deer, but all its young —and as they grow up, all their young deer—belong to the child. When he is of age, he has quite a herd of his • own.

A DOCTOR'S VIEV/S ON TEA AND COFFEE. "Writing on the subject of tea, coffeo and cocoa, Dr. G. H. R. Dobbs savs:— Tea, coffee and cocoa contain prac tically the same stimulating active principle. The difference between tea and coffee is a difference of arom^ The difference between cocoa and the oth9r two is a difference of nutrition, as cocoa Is a positive food, which the others are not. Always, I think, we may conclude that the East India teas are rather more "excitant" than the China teas. In all teas the thein (ac tive principle) is combined -with tan nic acid; and our object should be to drink the one (thein) without the oth er (tannin, as it is loosely called). Therefore, tea should not infuse too long—what is called "stand." Recol lect that very hard watpr will not make very good tea withoul prepara tion. Milk and sugar make a food of it. And tea made with boiling water and infused for five minutes is x most excellent pick-me-up in condi tions of temporary exhaustion. Al ways m...

WHAT OUR FOREFATHERS ATE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 February 1914
WHAT OUR FOREFATHERS ATE. A German paper publishes an inter esting article 011 the lost dishes 01 the Middle Ages. It seems that the art of cooking has declined, and that it is1 in part duo to the changing fashions in food. l'or instance, in Germany, in the middle Ages, many vegetables were eaten wiiioh have long since dis appeared from tjio table, such as vio let leaves, mixed with young nettles, thistles and green wheat, and bojlod hump seeds. Salads wore mado ol mallow leaves, celery roots, and purs lane, mixed with salt and pepper, lor oil was almost unknown. Olive oil was considered to smack of elliminaoy and Italian luxury. H.orso radish sauce was used instead. The origin of sauerkraut is lost in antiquity. But it was certainly invented by the Ger man hausfrau long before eaulillowers or artichokes or potatoes were known. The potato revolutionised the fare of the poor, who had formerly to rely 011 the roots of wild plants. The var iety of meats was larger, including beavers, a...

TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 February 1914
TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. According to the statistics published (says the Mark Lane Express)" there were in England last year 244,831 acres classed as orchards. We are sorry to say wo cannot say of "cultivated orchards, because the mistaken idea seems to have prevailed to a great ex thabl orchards and pastures can yet along alright without attention or as sistance; that kind Nature has en dowed them with the power ' ol' con tinuing to extract nourishmenti from a soil sucked dry by means of crop ping. The result of such a paradox is visible in the poverty stricken con dition of many orchards and pastures. It is pleasant to record that a change tor tlui better is gradually taking place. It is being recognised that when fruit trees of a good class are grown, and sprayed and pruned, orch ards become a source of profit not to be despised. It is essential that the trees, if expected to produce abund ant crops of good fruit, should be sup plied with nourishment, to compen sate them fo...
