FENCING MATERIALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
FENCING MATERIALS. Last week saw a decided advance in the market for all descriptions of wire nettings. Lysaght Bros. & Co., .Ltd., raised their quotations by 7/6 to 15/ per mile according to the de scription of netting. As imported stocks have become fairly limited, and local prices really do not re present a fair margin of profit to importers, they have taken advantage of this lifting of the locally manu factured article to elevate prices of imported nettings. It is stated that the Lands Department here recently called for tenders for some 7 AO miles of wire netting, and eventually this was given to Lysaght Bros. The wire required was 42.11/4.1? both "A" and " B" grades, and the delivery is to be spread over practically a year. Ly saght's first tender was about £5 per mile above that of the imported net tings, but they were evidently al lowed to reconsider prices, and a second tender, in which rates had been reduced some £2/10/ per mile, was accepted. The prices accepted w...
Workmen's Compensation Act. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
Workmen's Compensation Act. A peculiar argument against the advisability of insuring the council's workmen under the Workmen's Coin pensation Act was given by one of the Tintrenbar councillors when the matter was under the consideration of the council. He said that the council need not be alarmed as to their liability. The Act was sure to be amended within the next twelve months. Tnerefore the coun cil, he tlrought, would be wise to have nothing to do with insurance companies .(it. present.

Preservation of Public Health. 'me i-ecent report by cable Irom London that 151 cases of typhoid fever, fourteen of which pKoved fatal, liave occurred at Eccles, Lancashire, and the cases having been traced to the victims eating ice cream, has caused much consternation out here. At our own doors we frequently have exposures made of the filthy condi tions existing at some of the places in the city where food is prepared tor consumption, and one sometimes shudders to think of the possibilities of ptomaine po.son that exists ip. what we eat and drink. The risks we run are indeed great, and it be hoves all those m authority to exer cise the utmost vigilance and con stant attention to secure the most perfect cleanliness in all places of business where the creature comforts 01 the people are catered for. Our trains, trams, and steamboats are only allowed to be manipulated by experienced and skilful men, so mind ful are the authorities of the value of human life, yet we walk inte a place o...
CANTERBURY RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
CANTERBURY RACES. The postponed Canterbury meeting attracted a good attendance on Tues day . The course, however, was very heavy.

Building Ordinances. Ballina Council has been officially informed that it has no power to fcame building ordinances, but could pass resolutions for its guidance. We kruow that many councils have not even gone so far as that, simply working under Ordinance No. 70, and consequently there is no uniformity in their instructions to persons build ing.

DON'T SPOIL THE CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
DON'T SPOIL THE CHILDREN. Parents often ?wonder why their children are" more or less failures wlien they grow up. Perhaps this from a great nineteenth century philosopher-will enlighten them, hut it is given for the better reason that -: it may serve as a pointer to others: Herbert Spencer says that every, creature is happy when lie is fully, using, his powers. To have some thing to do that in the doing broadens and develops our powers, is the only way to be'happy. Parents so often try to shield their children , by doing everything for them. What a mistake it is It is just such chil dren who grow up indifferent, seif sufi'icient, and morally lazy. By individual effort alone the character grows, and in the act of growth only ' it is possible to know contentment. To enjoy this growth it is necessary to>have some keen interests in your life, whatever they may be. Try to see into the mysteries of nature, even . if, at first it is hard to overcome the sluggishness of your mind. Resolv...
ARE WE JUST LIKE THIS? [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
ARE WE JUST LIKE THIS ? "The Australian', woman ..should heacl any list of-Australia's precious products" (writes Beatrice Tracey. in addressing English readers . through the " Empire Magazine"), " even when that list is compiled Hy a com mercially^minded man. Sometimes one hears rash criticisms directed against her frivolity, her imdomestic tendencies, her lack of gentle woman liness. Such criticisms come as a rule from siiperficial observers, foreigners at that, whose standard of appraisement are based upon the prejudices formed in older countries "It is true that one cannot claim that Australian women possess quite that genius for orderly housekeeping which distinguishes a majority of English* women ; nor deny that they have a habit of pleasure-seeking that in England is counted a little un domestic| And though the Australian woman does not lack ' womanliness, her most affectionate admirer could not describe her as being of the 'gentle' sort. But that is natural; new countries re...
THE FATE OF THE DUNCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
THE FATE OF THE DUNCE. The poor old dunce is having a show at last. Mothers should please note that being good at sums is not all it has been cracked up to be as a sign of the sum-worker's intellectual brilliancy. Doctors are studying the ways of the backward child, and in stead of investing him (or her, but it is more often "him") with a dunce's cap, they are finding out the reasons why he is so slow at his lesson's. Tired, weary, overworked children are invariably dull at school. If a grow ing scholar has not plenty of fresh air and food lie is not likely to de velop into a bright pupil. The capa city for mathematical studies-which is a grand way of saying the power of grasping the multiplication table is now said to be no criterion of great , mental ability. They say now that a power to deal with numbers is often observable in a weak mind. Of course it is. Wasn't it Huck Finn who could only say as far as six times seven and never knew any more of the multiplication table ail his ...

HOUSEWORK AND ITS DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
HOUSEWORK AND ITS DRESS. Because servants are liarcl to get the town '.dweller grumbles, but the country woman laughs at her when the city person declares she is quite worn out (With work . " You don't know what work is/"' contends the .woman out back. "You have bread, butter, milk, and dozens of other necessaries brought to your door. You have water laid on and fixed tubs, and don't have to break your back carrying buckets from the creek and emptying them into the tubs and then lifting the heavy tubs down and emptying them out. Why, house work in town L child's play. Think of your gas stoves and electric light, and compare them with our kerosene lamps and great log fires. Yes, there is much truui in. the contention ! But the bravery and patient strength of the country; woman is never under estimated; Y ou country workers, too, have this advantage. Your home is your own, and you work in it.. Yours isn't such a hard part as that of hun dreds of city women who have to go out day by da...
LOOSE COVERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 February 1911
LOOSE COVERS. The loose covers any woman can make at home with a, sewing machine, running them up in a very short time. They are not at all hard to cut, even when the chair to be covered is knobby and twisted 'as to legs and arms and hard as to seat and back. It is much easier and also it looks better when the chair is completely covered, leaving nothing, showing but the cover. A few simple rules may Ise useful. They are :-Out news paper patterns first. Leave quite an inch for turnings. Never neglect the piping. Pipe an seams. Gut covers for' the- seat and tlfe back separately and join 'thein^ with a piped seam Box-pleat all frills. Hem of frill should be two inches from the floor. Make cover so that it may be slipped on and off the chair with ease. Choose a cretonne that will waslv. It is sometimes uetter to niake separate covers for the arms and backs of old-fashioned easy chairs. In factj it is the' only way that it can be done. But the eil'ect is in finitely more artistic when t...
