A NEW JERSEY CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
A NEW JERSEY CHAMPION. "What is the highest record we can expect a dairy cow to make?" is a query that has often been made. As it was with the trotting horse, 20 or 30 years ago, when animals began to ap pear that could trot a mile in less than threo minutes, for instance, Maudo S., making a record of 2.10, many thought that the speed linit of the horse had been reached, and so it was with the dairy cow. When Yeksa Sunbeam, a ?ucernsey, maade her phenomenal re cord of 857 pounds of fat in one year, it 5was doubted by many who had not studied thci breeding of ldairy cows closely that her record would scarcely be equalled, if ever excelled. Not long after this. Colantha 4th's Johanna, a Holstein, mlado 998 pounds of fat, excel ling Yeksa Sunbeam's record by 141 pounds of fat. Hero tho world's re cord remained for several years, but it was finally displaced by, Banostino Belle Do Kol, who made in one year 1058.31 pounds of fat. JlacrIla I'remne. with a yearly record of 954 lbs of fat h...
FOR THE FARMER'S WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
FOR THE FARMER'S WIFE. Folding Skirts for Travelling.-Fas ten tile waistband and pin the middle of the back to the centre of the front. Then lay the skirt out flat on the table, and, with two pieces of tissue paper as foundations, roll the skirt over and over towards the c:ntre, first fromn the right side of the skirt, then from the left, so forming two rolls that lie parallel to each otheor. If the garml'lllent has to bie folded crossiviso to admit of its being packed in suit-case or trunk, place a wad of tissue paper or newspaper underneatl th e creases. Skirts so packed take very little room, and show no traces of travelling in. a smalllll compass. 1BAKED FISH AND TOMATOES. Butter a piedish,l and put a layer of fillcie,1 haddock, plaioe, or sole in it. Sprinkle over the filsh a little pepper and salt, and a few drops of lemion juice. Cut some tonmatoes in slices, and put a layer of these, next adding a little pepper and salt. Fill your didl in this cway, finishing with a good lay...
APPLE EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
APPLE EXPORTS. Fruitgrowers, who export apples to Europe, will be interested in some sta tistics compiled by Mr Thos. Boss Waller, regarding the aotual results of shipments made last season from Tas mania, under the private marks of individual orchardists. Th6l opera tions of 20 small growers, ranging in quantity from 111 to 803 cases, and aggregating 6400 cases for the season, gave a net return on Hobart wharf of 6/10 to 9/9 per case. Sixty seven other growers exported between them 32,465 and their individual average net re turn for the season on THobart wharf ranged from 3/9 to 5/9 per case. It must bh remembered that Tasmanian apples as a rule do not sell in Europe at such lligh prices as those from the main land of Australia. This evidence tends to show thallt small lines of well selected and oarefully-packed apples realise more money than the same class of fruit in large quantities. Buyers apparently are prepared to pay, a con siderable premium to secure the whole of any choice...
REMEDY FOR GLARING LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
REMEDY FOR GLARING LIGHT. A novel device has recently been perfected for overcoming the danger from glare in motor-car ; headlights. This devioe consists of a rack of alum inium plates, placed behind the main glass and in front of the lens and burner. These plates are placed hori zontally, one above the other, about one-eigth of an inch apart, and have their lower surfaces highly polished, and the upper surfaces painted a dead blaok. The effect is that from a dis tance of about 150 yards; the full light is seen without any apparent shading, but as the car approaches, the light and glaro become weaker and weaker, until, when a feW yards away, nothing Gan be werl but a fain g>6 y glow.
POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
POULTRY NOTES. It is surprising more poultry-keepers do not keep a well-filled dust bath, which is the best of all cures against insect troubles. It is little trouble or expense. Dry earth or road dust, to a depth of 9in. to 12in., in a deep box, kept in a dry, sheltered position, is all that is required. A little pow dered sulphur should be added occas sionally, whilst carbolio powder is very useful in bad cases. Some hens are so infested with insect life, through neglect of the dust bath, that it is sometimes necessary to dip them bodily in a bath made of a decootion of quassa chips and tobacco water, afterwards placing in a warm coop to dry. Such insect troubles are generally confined to fowls which cannot have their liberty and are kept in too olose quarters. as poultry running on fields will find their dust bath under hedges and other places. Prevention is better than cure, and whether young or old, fowls kept in confinement must have a dust bath, or parasites will rapidly bree...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
MiAN-EATING FOXES. That the fox may be a man-eater appears from experience in Upper Piedmont, Italy. A young woman, ac customed to wander in the mountain gorges, disappeared, and after a time some articles of clothing belonging to her, surrounded with footprints of foxes were discovered at a point nearly a mile above sea-level. As there were no other tracks, it was concluded that, w~hile. stupefied by cold or fa.tiguo, the woman must have been attaoked and eaten b' these animAls.
WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosine.") The skirt is going to hall-mark the dress-is, in faot, doing this now. I can only offer one opinion: that the spring-spread hip is going to be con demned by all except extremists, Hav ing said that I glance at the blouse-I refer to the dominating note. In this department we have everything that is beautiful, and very little that calls for condemnation. The frill has grown like a flower--bud to bloom. Bit by bit the 3Medici has expanded till we are one remove from an irregularly formed ruff. The swelled front, which is outlined with a frill is to be exploited, frill to short sleeve in keeping, or to longer in the form of an, hour-glass. The designers the other side of the world are nothing if not resourceful to names. The wrist-frill, which is drawn in at oentro with ribbon, is very aptly described. Buttons are an etcetra we shall see in less striking form. While plenty may be used, either i r use or decoration, they will be of much reduced size. C...

BRITISH:FOOD -IMPORTS. DEOLINING SUPPLIES EVER-GR,OWING MARKETS The report of the Board of Agricul turo on the farm products imported into Great Britain gives an impressive idea of the value of that country as a market for our supplies of meat, but ter, oheese, wool, fruit, grain, or for anything useful which our settlers can raise from the generous soil of this Do minion. The average annual value of agri cultural commodities of all kinds im ported into Great Britain during the last five years is given as £268,311,000, and the increase over the same period twenty years ago is no less than £93,351,000. The report dealing with meat shows that Great Britain now imports no less than 21,203,000 cwt: of meat during the year, and consumes 32,052,000 owt. raised by British farmers, making a total of 53,255,000 cwt. equal to 1311b per head of population. During the last twelve years there has been an increase in consumption of 1,250,000 cwt., of which 800,000 cwt. was in home supplies. This ...
RAISING CROPS WITH GUNPOWDER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
RAISII1G CROPS WITH GUN POWDER. The old brown gunpowder, formerly standard in the United States navy, but disused since the introduction of smokeless powder, has been found by the Navy Department to possess value a a fertiliser, we are told by the In ventive Age. Says this paper : "Brown powder contains about SO per cent. of potassium nitrate, both of which are constituents of fertilisers. The au thorities at Indian Head, the navy proving station, wrote to the Agricul tural Department and asked the ex perts if they did not want to experi ment with the gunpowder as fertiliser. The offer was refused. Thsen the navy officials determined to use it themselves on the truck patoh in connection with the proving ground. The result is re ported to be most ipromising. The garden :tiuck succeeded beyond all pre vious records. The plan' is to be tried. on a larger scale."

HOMELY HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
HOMELY HINTS. The tangled threads of yesterday Will still unsnarl with toil and pain, To-day, our stubborn fingers play Sad havoc with to-morrow's skein. And yet the pattern grows apace, Despite the tangles that distress; And, at the last, it gains a grace, From all our patient clumnsinesss. Suet will keep in good condition if well covered with flour. Use a bicycle pump to remove dust from tufted furniture. A sliglit.draft on bread that is rising may cause it to come up verby slowly and perhaps spoil it altogether. When roasting a turkey, stuff the breain with pared sweet pitoties; thlley get a fine flavor from the juice. Try scraping off that burned side of your cake with a very coarse grater. Much superior to the -knife. Before frying liver, try dipping the slices in hot water; the flavor is im proved and much more delicate. iVhen washing flannels, be sure that the soap is thoroughly dissolved, or it will stick, and the flannels be patchy when dry. When you carry a. sauoerful of f...
MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
.IMELBOURNE LETTER "; (From.our Speoial Correspondeat). The Indeterminate Sentences Act, which was brought into action some five years or so ago, .and from whiah much was expeotcd, has not fulfilled expecta.t-oons. j The idea 'back of it oertai i.yihk.d wide possibilities, but like moss eflorts to handle the criminal element lclrctivcly, it_was not design ed on a suificiently comprehensive I an .and tihere seems to have been lack of determination in carrying out even what, was proposed. The intention behind this new law was to secure the adoption of a modern, scientific, and humane system for the treatmnt of orinminals, which would distinguish sharply between incorrigibles, who are a'.menace to society, and youthful of fenders, who needed only to be set upon t.lu* right track, to becoome use Ful'and law abiding members of the comilunity. F'or this purpose, it was proposed that special reformatory pris ons should be established, where of foenders could be detained indefinitely, until...

VALEDICTORY [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 13 February 1914
. VALEDICTORY On Monday evening last the office-bearers of the Methodist Church assembled at the residence of Mr A. J. Royce for the purpose of bidding farewell to Mr Royce, who, with his wife and family, in tends shortly to remove to Mel bourne. Mr Royce has been closely as sociated with the church as trus tee, local preacher and circuit steward, which latter position he had held for four consecutive years, and from which he re signed, owing to his contemplated removal, in December of last year. In his relation to the church Mr Royce was a regular attendant at the Sabbath services and a de voted helper in every department of the church's work. It was felt that the opportunity to publicly acknowledge Mr Royce's work could not be allowed to pass, and it was for this purpose that the office-bearers of the church visited his home last Monday night. Upon hearing of this arrang ment the ladies of the congrega tion also resolved to attend, for the purpose of conveying to Mrs Royce a sligh...
